Huna, in Hawaiian, means "secret." Huna, in its purest form is ancient knowledge enabling a person to connect to his or her highest wisdom within. Understanding and utilizing the fundamentals or "seven principles" of Huna is intended to bring about healing and harmony through the power of the mind. This healing art and earth science is spiritual in nature, experiencing its concepts gives us the opportunity to integrate mind, body and spirit.

One might acknowledge Huna teachings as one of nature's tools helpful in development of inner knowing and enhancing innate psychic abilities.

Seven Principles of Huna

  1. IKE - The world is what you think it is.
  2. KALA - There are no limits, everything is possible.
  3. MAKIA - Energy flows where attention goes.
  4. MANAWA - Now is the moment of power.
  5. ALOHA - To love is to be happy with.
  6. MANA - All power comes from within.
  7. PONO - Effectiveness is the measure of truth.

The seven principles of Huna shown here are attributed to Serge Kahili King, founder of The Aloha Project, an organization that evolved to bring people together who are aligned with Hawaiian culture, spirituality, and healing.
