STEP Zero: Become a regular visitor to this site
You are standing on the ka`ole step – the step before the fist step. You have found us and are ready to read, explore and see for yourself the effectiveness of Huna.
STEP One: The Ki`i Kukui
Get yourself equipped with a Ki`i Kukui so that you too can be an instant healer with the Huna Healing Icon. Become a Crewmember in the area of emergency healing. To get your own Ki`i Kukui; to enter the ke alanui e pono ia `o huna, the great path of Huna righteousness; to prove to yourself that Huna actually works, and that you too can become a religious healer instantly through the Power of The Good in the Created World, by whatever name.The gaining of your own Ki`i Kukui Huna Healing Icon can be done online from anywhere on the Earth. Isn’t it time for you to at least try to do your part to succor the agonies of this blood drenched world? (Or at least add an additional way than you have done before?)
Step two: The Kalo Cards
After using the Ki`i Kukui (KEY-key coo-COO-eee) to do effective healings. After it has changed color because it was blessed onto existence by a Kahuna `o Huna. You may deem it is time for you to enter into Huna further, and continue to test its flavor and efficacy.
This is best done by taking the online “Kalo and Mental Acuity Course” from the Heiau Institute of Huna Studies, by contacting Kahuna Keonaona, Keonaona@HunaInstitute.org. And prove to yourself that this area of Huna really works too, that once initiated into the Hunian language of the Kalo, the Tarot cards or ordinary Poker Cards no longer fall at random! That when you are able to actually read their meaning as sentences − that you can actually hold valid two-way conversations with your Aumakua or Guardian Angel, then it’s time to go further, if you choose to do so.
- Step three: The Huna Initiation Course
Once you can discuss matters with your Aumakua, your god (And everyone’s got one), you can then choose to become more involved in Huna by taking the online basic teachings of Huna, through the Heiau institute of Huna Studies: The Huna Conformation Course.
Step four: Lala (Membership in the Huna Heiau Church)
Then you can decide whether to practice Huna as a loner, or to enter into our common fellowship, our Hunian tribe, and end your loneliness. To have kupuna (Ancestors in Huna) and mamo (Descendants in Huna). You can get your life empowered by joining the great Ritual Prayer of the Huna Heiau Church each day, by memorizing the Ritual once you have become a member of it. You will have become the kind of person whose prayers get answered!
You can decide to join the Huna Heiau Church (tribe) as a “lala or member. This can be done from anywhere in the world through the mail..
- Step five: Tithing, what is Tithing?
You can get your finances in order by establishing a pili (relationship) with your Aumakua to supply you with the money you need through Tithing.
- Step six: Pilgrimage to the Huna Holiday of Makahiki, and doing the Firewalk
You can decide to increase your faith, and challenge your skill-sets development against other Hunians by making a Holy Pilgrimage to the Makahiki Celebration on every March 21, which also has a Firewalk. Do a clean Firewalk and you too can receive the Hunian’s Firewalk tattoo on your left wrist, and begin to study what the Malamaka`opuahiki tattoo actually means and how it works.
In addition, this is your time to taste the `Awa and participate in a formal Sacramental `Awa drinking and fellowship. `Awa has been a sacrament in Polynesia for over 3,000 years now. About time you entered that tradition, if you already haven’t, isn’t it?.
You will learn how to do the Hunian Grace, which all good Hunians use each time they eat. This helps to heal the wound in the food chain of lives sacrificed for us. It changes the taste of food for the better, and increases its nutritional value.
And only at the Makahiki is the “Invocation of the Descent of the Aumakua” performed, as first done by the Kahuna of our line, Kahuna Fred Kimball. Then paired the next year with the “Invocation of the Mantle of Protection”. Both Invocations change and improve the nature of our souls and its pili to your god, our na Aumakua. These changes are permanent, yet they can only be passed on from an initiated Kahuna `o Huna to the kama`ainana (common folk), they can not be initiated by one’s self alone.
- Step seven: Feeding your Beloved Dead at the Huna Holiday of The Remembrance
You can participate in the tribal nature of inner Huna through the Celebration of The Huna Holiday of The Remembrance, as established by Kahuna Nui Max Freedom Long.
It is the strongest Hunian tribal element in Huna. Kahuna Nui Max Freedom Long and Kahuna Oscar Brunler and other Kahunas of our line did extensive investigation of the “Dreamworld” or the afterlife. Watching pairs of human souls evolve into new Aumakuas.
They discovered that most souls took a long time to evolve into a new angelic being, but that some traveled very fast. They discovered in Psychometric Analysis studies that a person might make an Aumakua in just one lifetime instead of the normal 60 through three practices, two while alive and one while dead.
First, of the two when alive are to become and experience the world as a Huna Warrior, and the second was to stay with Huna long enough to become initiated into our most advanced practice, the “Hemolele Practice”.
And while dead, well let’s see, ever had a portable tape recorder’s batteries go bad on you? You will find that it can play a much longer time than if it is recording. In other words, it takes far more energy to make a new recording than it does to simply play something already recorded. The same with our memories of experiences and acquisition of wisdom, the na`auao or Wisdom from Pain ,which is essential to our Graduation.
Likewise in the Dreamworld. It is easy to dream old dreams, and hard and expensive in terms of mana to integrate the na`auao from our experiences. Although once integrated, memory is no longer necessary. A lens does not need to remember its polishing to bring things into focus!
In Western Culture, you are taught you are alone, and need to be independent. In Huna that is thought of as an anti-social arrogance. Indeed. in the Hunian Way, the worst thing which can be judged and spoken of a person is: “He acts as if he has no relatives.”
As Kahuna Lani’s linguist friend Kevin said when explaining the nature of the Hunian/Polynesian concept of “Aloha” to another Huna Heiau Church lala:
Just a few thoughts on “aloha”. First of all, it is not something you can lose, in the same sense as the English “love”. It is a response arising from pili or relationship, not a feeling. “‘Aloha” is what you do, not what you feel, It’s basic meaning is ‘to treat as a full human’. That is why it is hard to translate. ‘Love’, ‘pity’, ‘compassion’, ‘tenderness’ are some of the translations. It has no connection with words translated as ‘lover’, ‘love-struck’, ‘love charm’, ‘love-song’, etc., as all these have different words in Polynesian languages, because they have different meanings to ‘aloha’. To ‘feel aloha’ for someone is to have the intention of treating that person as a full human. Traditionally that meant you had a relationship with the person – with all its obligations and rights – and you intended to act accordingly. The first thing a Polynesian does when he/she meets someone new is to try and establish a relationship connection. Once you are placed as a relative/friend/workmate/fellow church member/etc of someone known, then there can be ‘aloha’. Without that there is nothing, and traditionally such a person was killed on the spot, as they were ‘non-human’ and without a place in the world. That is [or was] common throughout the Pacific.
The question revolves around how one feels. It is centered on one as an individual. That is foreign to Polynesian and Hunian thought. You exist only as a part of a web of relationships – the fulfillment of which is “aloha”. Europeans [especially Americans] will spend a fortune on counseling because they ‘don’t love’ their parents, or their parents ‘don’t love’ them. A Polynesian treats his parents with ‘aloha’ – feeds them, shelters them, treats them with respect – regardless of whether he/she ‘loves’ them or ‘hates’ them.
Feelings are not unimportant, but they are not central: Intention and action are central, and feelings will eventually fall into line – most of the time. Intense hatred for someone does no harm to anyone, and soon passes, if intention and actions are correct. I still find it hard to put into words. I hope it helps you some, and I’m sure Lani will correct mewhere he thinks I am wrong
As a tribe of interrelated persons, what are our continuing responsibilities to our beloved dead? How can we help them? How can we maintain our pili with them?
As set up by our kumu (teacher), Kahuna Nui Max Freedom Long, once a year in late October, the Hunian tribe gathers together, those who can make it, to feed our beloved dead. The rest celebrate the Huna Holiday of the Remembrance anywhere they find themselves on that date. And we have a formal `Awa Ceremony, and then the rest of the Remembrance Ceremony.
In this way we maintain a pili with and do good for our dead. This makes them feel healthy, powerful, and to integrate the na`auao from their last life’s experience so much faster.
In that manner, we maintain our relationship and perform our noble duty to our dead in the tribe. and also anyone we love.
But that is only one hand, the hand leading into our past, and to our Huna Kupuna or the Elders who have gone before us. There is also the trailing hand. It is clasped to our, many times unknown, mamo or descendants. For in turn, when we die and enter the Dreamworld, Moku. Those who follow us will feed us too, with the same diligence and commitment that we know we too have served.
No longer to think of yourself as “complete” and independent. Now, realizing you are in a Hunian Matrix in Time, with kupuna (ancestors) and mamo (descendants) and other lala at your side. And that your dead need your help to travel faster than would otherwise be possible to the shinning goal of Graduation, and that you have come to peace with the knowledge of your own death to come, and that the lala of your Hunian kith and kin will also feed you when you join your beloved dead in the Dreamworld, and just dream and party down, and if you are into the lala of the Huna Heiau Church, and it survives you because of the Tithes of the lala, then you too will have all the mana you need to swiftly travel on ke alanui `e pono ia `o huna (The great Path of Huna righteousness) given to you each Huna Holy Day of The Remembrance..
And our journey on Ke Alanui e pono ia `o huna (The great Path of Huna righteousness) is completed at the lowest level.
And hen we may decide to live a life of Huna Service, and be initiated as a Priest of Huna, a “Kahuna `o Huna”.
And close to our ending on ke alanui e pono ia `o huna, we will be initiated into the Hemolele Practice, once our lei of Ki`i kukui is e pau (completed) at forty Ki`i Kukui, and upon your death, you may well Graduate and become a new glorious Aumakua and be Born Again no more.
And we know that the only way to that advancement is through service to our fellows, to become Crewmembers here and leave being Guests mostly behind. For us Hunians, it is in the healing, and the talking to our god, and the Tithing, and the TMHG Ritual prayer. The Huna Firewalk and its tattoo and its operations.
The Sacramental `Awa.
The decision made to cease to be a needy Guest in this Created World, but a Crewmember or Host, who serves…
A single Aumakua
