MEMORY OF A KAHUNA
Abraham Aua'ia Maka'i'ole Kawai'i, often called
"Kahu," was a great man who touched
and souls through his work and with his wisdom.
He was a playful spirit who knew his mission. That mission
was to be himself and help others discover their own divine
nature. He used Lomilomi as a vehicle for FULL transformation.
A while ago I learned of the sudden passing of this
Hawaiian mentor who has influenced my work
a great deal.
In his memory, I would like to share a small portion of
an interview with you that I got published in The Los Angeles Whole
Life Times in 1988, entitled: - Masters of Hawaiian 'Magic'. Serge King was also in this issue. I hope you
WLT: I have great respect for the Huna tradition,
and your position as one of the very few Kahuna's practicing
and teaching on the mainland. Therefore, I hope that you
will feel free to share with us your information about Huna.
AK: The Huna tradition
is three to five thousand years old. What I am doing now
is bringing forth the principles of that ancient wisdom
and formulating it in such a way that it is applicable for
the people in this time period.
The basic principle of the art that I am practicing is an
encompassing one, the spiritual understanding that everything
is related to everything. The Huna training is geared to
that. By looking at everything in that way, everything gets
refined every moment of your life.
The Kahuna training develops deep simplicity
through observation and application of oneself, of nature
and natural rhythms...
WLT: Would you say that
Kahuna practice involves the attunement of the individual
with the energies around the individual?
AK: Yes, I would say that.
The attunement is to everything in existence. The basic
concept that more or less permeated the cultures of the
Pacific was the concept of family. And the concept of family
evolved out of the spiritual understanding that everything
is related to everything. Therefore that particular principle
of the philosophy was moved into the culture of the clan
ship and the tribes in order to affect a harmonious balance.
That same principle of attunement and family
is also related to the physical body. The concerns of that
particular domain being the cellular structure and even
further into the molecular and atomic. It might be difficult
for the modern world to understand that ancient people were
concerned with molecular and atomic realms. When the missionaries
came they destroyed the contact with all sub-gods.
However, the sub-gods were basically names of what you know
now to be molecules and atoms. Therefore, the Kahuna's were
able to change structure by attuning themselves to these
sub-gods, having a communication with these sub-gods to
be able to do a bone healing instantaneously or to be able
to change or move matter. All of these basic principles
are interrelated throughout the South and North Pacific...
The concept of the Kahuna in looking at
anything is that there is a being within a being. Worlds
within worlds, spheres within spheres, lives within lives,
universes within universes. In the type of training I went
through, you had to pull this out of yourself! Then your
answers come out of you and confidence in yourself grows.
Once that happens, any type of information coming out of
you is actually truth. Then you understand yourself to be
walking, breathing Truth.
WLT: What would you like
to see happen in the world as a result of your work?
AK: I'm looking forward
to seeing beings of the world acting as them selves and
understanding who they are, able to understand where all
things have come from and how all things can be affected
by either movement, thought, word, motion - action. You
learn that in the Kahuna training by how you react in situations.
In these different intensives that
I give in Hawaii, little ladies can take some football player
and put him down or lift him up with great simplicity and
great ease just by understanding their own flowing rhythms.
To be a Kahuna is to be in the flow, to be in the rhythm,
to be totally in love continuously--every moment of your
life. There is an enjoyment of understanding in action and
the enjoyment of putting it forth and applying it.
