I went to magic school! I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho to learn Ancient Hawaiian Huna. Huna is an energy tradition that comes from Hawaii, that allows us to connect with our unconscious mind and our higher conscious selves. Our incredible instructor describes it as magic.
I still grapple with how to describe the work, so I’ll describe my experiences/learnings instead:
I let go of some really old stuff – As part of the training, we had clearing sessions where we were able to let go of anger, sadness, fear, hurt, and guilt. I had done this work through another modality called Time Line Therapy (R), so I figured it would be easy peasy.
When we started in on anger, the first emotion, I felt my entire body light up. I got hot, I felt tingling sensations, and I had the feeling of lifetimes of anger being squeezed out of my pores. I know that sounds intense, and it was, but it was the most healing experience I’ve had to date.
When we were done with all the emotions, I felt empty. Like I had been wrung of lifetimes of emotion that no longer served me. I felt clear and light and untethered. It took a night of good sleep to reorganize, but I felt like a new person afterward.
I felt true love – We spent three days learning techniques and principles and the history of the work, and at the end of the third day, we went through a ceremony to have this work installed in us (similar to a Reiki attunement). In this ceremony, I felt an intense wave of heat through my body. I started sweating, despite being in an air-conditioned conference room, and I thought, “Wow, this is intense.” And so simply, and so plainly, what I heard was, “It’s ok, it’s just love.” And I felt it through every cell of my being. And we all have access to that at any given moment.
We are limitless – Is there something that you want? Something that truly makes your heart sing? Then you have everything you need to achieve it. Whether or not you believe that right now. You see, if we desire it, then it already exists within us. We simply get in the way by layering on fear or doubt or worry or insecurity. So by removing those blocks, we can have a clearer path to achieving those goals.
We know next to nothing – There’s so much in this life we chalk up to the unknown; our purpose, spontaneous healings, spirituality, karma, fate, and so on. We have a very human understanding of how we think it works, but the reality is, there’s so much we simply don’t understand.
And I’m ok with that. When it comes to the unknown, I choose to trust that we are held, surrounded by love, and have all the resources we need to navigate that unknown. Huna falls squarely into my “unknown” bucket and it fills me with a deep sense of wonder and curiosity.
I completed levels 1 and 2 and I’ll be returning for the last two levels in October. In the meantime, I’ll just be over here practicing magic.
