Happiness is…

Good kakahiaka maikai kanaka

Paha e piha ka malamalama a me ke aloha i kou hopena pule.

Today’s “Happiness is..” comes to us from This is a fabulous website, with an upbeat, positive SPARKY vibe. Here’s a quote from her “about” page.

“My “sensory-semantic” attitudes about life

keep me balanced and on top of my game.”

Today’s prayer is a Hawaiian prayer called the ho’oponopono. It is a practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. Traditionally, it is practiced by a healing priest called a kahuna lapa’au with an ill person. In modern times, it is performed with a family elder or individually. Here is a link for a guided meditation using the ho’oponopono:

About Tamara Hoerner (1303 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  2. I think you are part of a much needed spiritual collective. This collective inspires, promotes, uplifts, heals, and gives to those in need [whether they know it or not] all over the planet. This collective asks little if nothing. This collective of people [spirits in human form] knows why they are here, and waste little if any time Being The Reason subtle changes are occurring. This collective knows it is the time, and our planet is the place to individually, yet hand in hand, BE THE [non-violent] blessed CHANGES we seek!
