The Seven Principles of Huna Shamanism.

As I travel through my Spiritual Roaming I have come to love Huna Shamanism. Huna is the modern or Western name that has been applied to the ancient healing and spiritual shamanism of ancient Hawaii. In an essence it is very simple. So simple that the below seven principles sum it all up. 

Over the next few Roaming postings here I will add my spin to these principles. 

1. The World Is What You Think It Is.
2. There are no limits.
3. Energy Flows Where Attention Goes.
4. Now Is The Moment Of Power.
5. To Love Is To Be Happy With (someone or something).
6. All Power Comes From Within.
7. Effectiveness Is The Measure Of Truth. 

The first one we will look at is "The World Is What You Think It Is."  So simple. You think your life is good and it will be. You think your life is bad and so it will be. I said it was simple. Now go and apply that to all areas of your life. Maybe not hey?! Let me give you an example.

A guy spent many years of his marriage being down trodden. He learnt this from his mother because that's how she treated him from birth. So he looked for someone to marry that would treat him the same way. For years his world was horrible. Till one day the light came on above his head and he realised that he did not have to live like this. So he ended his marriage. After a period of time of being on his own he thought it he would go out with a woman again. So he dated a few women. Guess what? Yep they were all like his mother and his ex-wife all over again. His world was horrible again. So did he decide to become celebrant?  Never to have a woman in his life again? No this time he made an agreement with himself. An agreement to change his world. He would never be involved with anyone again that would make his life miserable. He meant it this time. Guess what. He is now with a woman and in a very wonderful relationship with her. He changed his world. "The World Is What You Think It Is." This guy has made his world better. He thought "I want a better relationship. I don't want the same type of women again in his life."

So if your world is horrible and you hate what is going on. It is up to you and you alone to change it. Yes it may not change over night and this is where patience and perseverance come to the fray. Think you want a better world and then act on that thought.

Love and Light to you all till my next Roaming.  


  1. Interesting!

    Huna shamanism is one of the primary arenas my own shamanic teacher was trained, so we get a lot of that in our training. It's very fascinating stuff...and so *healthy,* compared to a lot of the fundamental beliefs of my own upbringing.

  2. I love how easy Huna is. How simple it is. I was introduced to shamanic ways by shaman who talked alot about Huna.

    I know exactly what you mean by *healthy*.
