Hawaiian Viewpoint

When you hear of the Polynesian viewpoint on life you often hear talk of the three selves. These
are still further referred to as the Upper, Middle and Lower selves where the Upper self relates
to the higher conscious mind, the Middle self to the conscious mind and the Lower self to the
unconscious mind. Whilst this is a common understanding of the Hawaiian perspective, it is, as
you may have noticed, a model of Mind. In the true Hawaiian Huna tradition it was never a
model of mind but rather of the three bodies of man; the physical body; the mind (or mental)
body; and the soul body and their own unique intelligence.

The physical body is central to the Hawaiian belief system. It is through the body, they believe,
that the mind and soul are able to communicate. To this effect the body was a blessed thing and,
through the body, offerings could be made to the gods. These offers were in the form of song;
traditional chants, and dance; in the form of the hula kahiko, which is the old form of hula,
unrelated to the modern dance performed for tourists. The songs, or more specifically, chants
are a way of story telling and continuing the rich oral tradition of the Islands, whilst the hula
kahiko often tells the story of everyday activities such fishing, canoeing or planting, and also
contains more martial elements in some of the men's dances. The body is a thing to be
cherished, fed good food, massaged and played with and most of all - enjoyed! To the ancient
Hawaiians, everything that they did was an act of prayer to their ancestors and to their gods. As
such they walked constantly in the presence of Love and in the Spirit of Aloha which, as well as
being a greeting, means home. When they were happy in them selves and in their contact with
their nature gods then they were indeed home and each one of us seeks that special feeling
wherever we may live. The spirit of Aloha is not just limited to the Hawaiian Island chain.

The mind body was seen as a shadowy body that was filled with 'mind stuff' and could be more
associated with the energy body often spoken of today. In the realm of the mind could lurk
thought forms and invading entities. The mind was something to be careful of and ancient
Hawaiians preferred, whenever possible, to live in their bodies unlike today's modern humans
where the mind tends to dominate.

Then there was the soul body. Created first and being both finer and larger than the physical
body, it was perceived as the source of your vital life force. In the Huna Mua tradition the
connection to the soul can be facilitated with certain awareness techniques and hand placements
on specific areas of the body.

Awareness of all three bodies and also the constant presence of the ancestors, or personal
Aumakuas, who watched over them and guided them and helped out when asked was at the
heart of their everyday lives - a truly expanded state of being compared to the way in which
Western man lives today. Not awareness alone but a profound level of communication between
these three bodies was seen as crucial and gateways exist through which the passage of
information between the bodies can flow. The Huna Mua tradition passes on specialised
gateway clearing practices among other things to ensure that the communication between the
bodies remained clear and also practices to aid the creation of a fourth body - an immortal spirit
