Kahanu - The Light & The Breath Within

Shortly after graduating from high school in rural Nebraska, I moved across the world (or so it felt to me at the time) away from my family, friends and everyone I knew and landed in Hilo, Hawaii.  Even though in the scheme of things I was only there for a short time, Hawaii touched a place in my heart and will forever be a part of my soul.

Many years later, when Jeff and I were searching for a name for a yoga and meditation spa, something kept drawing me to Hawaii again with its warm beaches, beautiful sunsets, exotic flowers and amazing people.  In my search I found the name Kahanu and it was the perfect fit! We fell in love with the name, the symbol, the meditation and the meaning and now we are here to share it with you.

The Kahanu symbol ushers waves of light into the body to remove blockages and to open up the circuitry, recharge your cells, and re-ignite your mana.  In this case, not life force but power, as defined by some kahunas (priest, sorcerer, magician, wizard, minister, expert in any profession), among them Serge Kahili King who equate mana to power, i.e. creative power which is the ability to influence and change your body, your relationships and your environment.

 The name of the symbol translates to “the wave of light that makes you gasp”.

 While meditating on this symbol, imagine a source of light as brilliant as the sun hovering just above the symbol. In meditation, visualize the symbol descending to your crown chakra or the third eye along with the light which fills up your entire body.

Your cells are in constant vibration and are renewing every 7 months. The body is a bundle of energy with electrical impulses sparking through the nerves and synapses and blood speeding through the veins to feed the organs. There is unlimited energy in your body and in the Universe, and when you feel tired and drained, it is not due to a lack of energy, it is due to blockages to the perennial flow of energy in your body.

Light and Energy

Fatigue is self-generated either consciously or unconsciously because there is an infinite flow of energy all around you. Look at the ocean. The waves, even in the calmest conditions, are always in motion, because the hydrogen and oxygen molecules are constantly forming and reforming new patterns among themselves. Those of you who have read Dr Masaru Emoto’s’ “Messages from Water will be aware that positive words, written or spoken, thoughts and even music will change the crystalline formations in the water to beautiful symmetrical shapes while negative thoughts such as anger and hatred lead distorted undefined formations.

Dr Emoto and his practitioners have documented evidence of changing the molecular structure of the water in Lake Biwa through prayer. Located in Central Japan, this large lake was dirty and polluted, and every summer would be clogged with foul-smelling putrifying algae.. Dr Emoto led a group of 350 people to the lakeside and blessed the lake with a prayer at sunrise. Before the prayer, photos showed the water structure was fragmented and unappealing and after the prayer was over, the frozen water crystal displayed a beautiful design like that of a snowflake.

 Imagine if words, intention and prayer can do that to a large body of water, what would they do to our own bodies, given that we are 70% water?

Kahanu and Breath

The Kahanu symbol, like all ancient huna symbols, is believed to shift consciousness and open up the electrical circuitry of the body so that energy flows unceasingly. Kahanu also means breath and it is important before starting the meditation to employ the huna breath work or Ha breathing, for at least 5 minutes. It is very simply done at any time and place.

Take a take breath through the nose to fully fill the lungs, and exhale through the mouth completely by saying “Haaaa.

 Repeat this for at least 5 minutes, either in silence or to music. If at any time, you start to feel light in the head, pause and let the moment pass.

Kahanu Expressed

 Bear in mind that all life is in perpetual motion. When you realize that you are responsible for your own level of energy, then you are not putting the blame on something external to you – work frustrations, money problems, family issues, or any number of excuses. When you do, you are actually diminishing your own power and your ability to renew your own mana.

 Recharge with the Kahanu symbol and always conduct your meditation with thanks and gratitude for the help provided by the symbol. It is not the end, it is a means, and acknowledge the wise ones who have given you the gift of the symbol of light and breath.

Peace and Love,
Brigett
