Aloha oukou. ‘O Lanakila ko’u inoa. I kēia manawa, e huakaʻi ana kākou i ka Moku o Keawe, ʻo ia hoʻi ʻo ka mokupuni ʻo Hawaiʻi! ʻO ka mokupuni nui loa ia o nā mokupuni Hawaiʻi a pau. ʻO ka home ia o ka wahine ʻo Pele. ʻO Halemaʻumaʻu ka inoa o ka lua pele, ma Kīlauea. Ma luna aʻe o Kīlauea, aia ʻo Mauna Loa e noho mālie ana. He mauna loloa maoli nō ia ke nānā aku.
ʻO ka ʻōhiʻa kekahi kumu lāʻau e ulu ana ma ka nahele o Hawaiʻi nei. He lāʻau ʻoʻoleʻa kona i küpono no nā pou hale i ka wā kahiko. ʻO ka pua o ia kumu, he “lehua” kona inoa. He pua ʻulaʻula ia. ʻO ka pua lehua ka pua nani e kaulana nei ʻo Hawaiʻi. He uluwehiwehi maoli nō ka nahele i nā pua lehua!
(Iʻm talking about the Island of Hawaiʻi, Peleʻs home, and the flower attributed to Pele, the ʻōhiʻa that grows from the lehua tree …)
Hawaiian is magical in multidimensional ways, which is why I teach our students to wield their Mana through a Hawaiian lens. With Japanese, Hawaiian is the only other language processed on the RIGHT side of the brain. (Consider the implications there!) That makes the sounds created by Japanese and Hawaiian words very special … and closest to the light languages of our star ancestors. All reasons that our serious practitioners at The Halau focus their healing art around the Kotodama. When you know how to work the energies, you donʻt need tools ʻcause you are THE tool! All this is built into the Hawaiian language. If you are interested in learning Hawaiian, contact me. ~ Lana
