A Kahuna Prayer for Wisdom, Clarity and Self-Love

By Nick Polizzi

Guest writer for Wake Up World

The ancient Kahuna prayer below stopped me in my tracks on a recent journey into the jungles of Hawaii.

These words are particularly potent right NOW – in an era where it has become so easy to get distracted by our phones, computers and TVs. Our senses are overloaded with constant information, from text message threads to scary headlines on social media to the droning voices of news pundits…

The following prayer gives us easy instructions on how to sift through all the chatter, letting in only that which illuminates our path to deeper wisdom and purpose.

I hope this gift from the ancients of Hawaii lights you up as it did for me!

A Kahuna Prayer for Wisdom, Clarity and Self-Love:

Take all that I say,

And toss away

Without a thought

All that does not

Strike within You

A Recognition.

For You do not learn Wisdom and Love

You only encounter

Catalysts to remember it.

For it is all

Within Yourself.

Stay curious,
