When I completed my Kahuna Massage training I was introduced to the following seven principles and something within me went hazar! I had unconsciously being following these principles my entire life, and in bringing them to my conscious awareness their power and influence in my life increased. I could palpably feel the mirth of my higher self as I had this realisation as I’m sure you will too. So without further adieu I present you with Seven Principles to Live By in order to have a happy, healthy and prosperous life.
IKE – The World is what you think it is
Whether you think the glass is half full or half empty both are true, the only difference is your point of view. Your attitude can make any problem an obstacle or a challenge, which do you choose?
KALA – There are no limits
Everything that is in your life you have created with your thoughts and your beliefs, the more limiting your thoughts and beliefs the more limited your life experience. We live in an infinite universe which therefore implies infinite experiences, are you choosing thoughts and beliefs that are enabling you to create the life of your dreams?
MAKIA – Energy Flows where attention goes
Everything in the Universe is energy so wherever you are focussing your attention that is where your energy is flowing. If you’re focusing all your energy on lack then you are focussing your energy on what you don’t have and will thus continue to experience what you don’t have because that is where all your energy is focused. Whereas if you focus all your energy on how abundant you are and how many wonderful people and things are in your life you will attract more of those people and things that make you feel abundant because that is where you energy is focused. Where are you focusing your energy? On what you want or what you don’t want?
MANAWA – Now is the moment of Power
Wherever your attention is at any given moment combined with the feelings you are having in that moment is what is creating your future. If you are constantly replaying things that have happened in the past and reliving the emotions associated with it then your future is going to be filled with situations and circumstances that produce those very same feelings. It’s perfectly natural to experience a whole suite of emotions the key is to feel them in the moment then let them go, don’t hold onto them, let your feelings be your guide and follow the feel good vibes, thank your anger, frustration etc for letting you know that you’ve wandered away from your natural state of love and focus on what is immediately around you. What colours are there? what smells? what sounds? connect with what is with you right now in this moment, become aware of the beauty in all things and you’ll shift your vibration closer and closer to what it is your heart and soul truly wants and distance yourself further and further from what it is you don’t want. Just be.
ALOHA – To Love is to be happy with
If you are not doing what you love, surrounded by people that you love then you are wasting your time. Everyones purpose in life is to do what they love and to share that love with others but more often than not we are conditioned to a life of security, conformity and conservatism all of which may appear to give one peace of mind but if you are living within unhappy circumstances, if you are settling for less than you desire then do you really have peace of mind? Doing what you love and honouring your own unique heart and soul is what provides peace of mind and the security in which we all seek. In any given moment ask “What would love do?” and do that!
MANA – All Power comes from within
All the power that creates your experience comes from your own body, mind and spirit, nothing ever happens to you without your participation. Every event you have ever experienced you’ve attracted it through your beliefs, desires, fears and expectations and either react to it habitually or respond to it consciously. No one can make you unhappy, you make yourself unhappy because others are behaving in ways that you don’t want them to or the way you think they should.
The power is within you to create something, so the power is also within you to change it. By changing whatever it is that is within you that has attracted a person or situation that you don’t like you will cease to attract that same kind of person or situation as you have changed the beliefs, desires, fears or expectations that brought the event to you in the first place. Your external world is merely a reflection of your internal world, so if you don’t like what is happening on the outside, its time to journey inwards and examine your beliefs, face your fears and create a world from within in which you do wish to experience. Everything that has ever happened in your life, the good, the bad, the ugly you created, you are the common denominator in all of your experiences no one else; are your beliefs serving you?
PONO – Effectiveness is the measure of Truth
Everyone of us in unique so what works for one person may not work for another, the key is to honour your own heart and soul and do what works for you. Bearing in mind that if you choose to be ruthless in your pursuit for success then you will produce a state of success in which others will act ruthlessly towards you. Conversely, if you choose to be successful through helping others then you will produce a state of success in which others are helping you. The choice is yours, you create your life, no one else.
