7 Hawaiian principles

Hawaiian medicine guides us to our heart center, fostering a life of freedom, love, connection, synchronicity, abundance, spiritual power, flow, and heightened consciousness awareness. It’s a transformative journey to holistic well-being. Each day we embody one of the following Hawaiian principles, through spritual and heart activating processes.

  • MANAWA – Now is the moment of power “I am here now”

  • IKE – The world is what you think it is “I am aware”

  • MAKIA – Energy flows where attention goes “I am focused”

  • ALOHA – To love is to be happy with “I am happy”

  • KALA – There are no limits “I am free”

  • MANA – All power comes from within “I am confident”

  • PONO – Effectiveness is the measure of truth “I am positive”
