The 7 Principles of Huna Philosophy – The secret of Shamans
Note – I’m not Hawaiian and an expert about history, religion, and culture of the Hawaiian people. However, I want to share this with you. Because I think that these 7 Principles of Huna philosophy can help us to enable to our highest wisdom within. And also to bring harmony through the power of the mind.
What is Huna Philosophy?
A long time ago, Hawaii was a mystical and magical place. What made Hawaii magical in ages, past was that there were shamans called kahunas that lived on its emerald islands. These individuals experienced a true nature of reality, in which they realized several critical defining aspects. That was later taught to others, in order to guide humanity towards a fully self-realized state of existence.
In the early 20th century. With the rise of New Thought, there was an individual by the name of Max Long. Who linked the ancient kahunas to abstract and mystical metaphysics, he was contemplating upon. He believed the key to Huna is the concept of the ‘Three Selves’, These selves are the unihipili (subconscious, inner, emotional, intuitive), the uhane (waking consciousness, rational) and the aumakua (super-conscious, connection with the divine), however these are not the Hawaiian meanings of these words.
The 7 Principles of Huna Philosophy developed to encourage positive self-improvement through the power of the mind. It is a very pragmatic philosophy and is “inclusive”. In that it does not exclude any other philosophy or religion, and can be practiced alongside any other system.
The Ancient Huna Symbol
Ancient Hawaiian shamans used Huna symbols to evoke energy. There were 36 of them discovered in a series of manuscripts.
According to the legend, this Huna symbol radiates energy and light. It helps create happiness and abundance.
The circles in the symbol represent unconditional love and the lines show divine power. The symbol is said to be a source of blessing for whatever location. It is in or whoever is looking at it.
Huna means “secret” in Hawaiian. Huna, in its purest form, is ancient knowledge enabling a person to connect to his or her highest wisdom within. Understanding and utilizing the fundamentals, or “seven principles,” of Huna is intended to bring about healing and harmony through the power of the mind.
The seven principles of Huna shown here are attributed to Serge Kahili King, founder of The Aloha Project, an organization that evolved to bring people together who are aligned with Hawaiian culture, spirituality, and healing.
According to critics, Serge King misappropriated and attempted to redefine three Hawaiian language words for his idea of “the three selves”: “Ku,” “Lono,” and “Kane.” However, the meanings he gives these words are not the meanings of the words in Hawaiian.
Despite of critics leading Kahuna expert Dr. King has recently detailed the Huna philosophy into easily explicable principles that you can use in everyday life as you work to manifest the things you desire.
