Huna Code in the Gospels : John 16:33 – In the world ye shall have tribulation: (Iloko o ke ao nei e loaa ia oukou ka popilikia:)




An investigation into a code constructed in the Hawaiian language to conceal a body of knowledge (ike huna) belonging to a psycho-religious belief system practiced by the kahunas of ancient Hawaii and elsewhere in Polynesia.

The realization that there might exist a code in the Hawaiian language that concealed a body of knowledge known only to the kahunas can be credited to the author, Max Freedom Long, whose consuming interest in the kahunas and their secret practices was attributable to the numerous testimonies of miracles performed by the Hawaiian kahunas; testimonies which came to his attention during the course of his stay in Hawaiian Islands. Because the kahunas were inviolably pledged to secrecy, Mr. Long was unable to learn from them exactly how they performed their miracles. One day in 1934, Mr. Long awoke with the idea that the kahunas must have had words with which to instruct the student kahunas, and he began a dogged search in the Hawaiian dictionary for any words which discussed man’s mental and spiritual nature. He found such words, but because these words were isolated words and not in any context, his progress in understanding was slow. It was not until 1953 that Mr. Long made his great breakthrough when he discovered the presence of coded information in the King James’ Bible. The words were now in context and there was a leap in his understanding. He referred to the coded information in the Hawaiian language as the Huna Code; the word huna, meaning that which is concealed.

The research method adopted by the author to investigate coded material is the method suggested by Mr. Long; i.e., to study the alternate meanings of words and most particularly root words of the Hawaiian language translation of the King James version of the New Testament, especially the words of Jesus. Because many Hawaiian words have multiple meanings, one has to carefully sort through each of them to consider which definition(s) might be applicable to a given discussion. In order to determine which definition “belongs”, one has to compare it with the definitions of juxtaposed words to see if together they make sense. In this manner, bit by bit, the subject of the discussion gradually emerges. The whole process is analogous to that of putting together the pieces of a picture puzzle. It is only when all of the pieces have been put in their respective places, that a complete and coherent picture then becomes visible.

This investigation is being conducted by the author in the hope of helping to bring to light a greater understanding of the three minds of man and their powers; that this understanding may help man to live a more joyful, fulfilling, and abundant life. The author is not a teacher of the Huna Code, but a student whose aim is to share the knowledge of the Huna Code with other like minded students.

JOHN, Chapter 16 : Verse 33

(IOANE, XVI : 33)

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Ua olelo aku au ia oukou i keia mau mea, i loaa’i ia oukou ka maluhia iloko o’u. Iloko o ke ao nei e loaa ia oukou ka popilikia: aka, e hoolana oukou; ua lanakila wau maluna o kea o nei.

In the world ye shall have tribulation:

Iloko o ke ao nei e loaa ia oukou ka popilikia:


The conscious mind self’s power to create thought-form image desire “seeds” and their consequent “fruits” or life manifestations is compromised not only by an invasion of the brain by various microorganisms such as the leptospire bacteria but also by an invasion of the brain by entities of the spirit kind. An early indication of spirit invasion in a person is the hearing of voices whispering inside of the head, not externally through the ears. In certain cases, enslaved spirits have been deliberately sent by a kahuna anaana, or sorcerer, to invade a person as punishment for an offense. In this type of anaana, the intent is not to kill, but to create havoc in the brain of the victim; or insanity. This insanity, recognized as schizophrenia, is the result of the commandeering of the brain by disincarnate spirits who violate the law of individual free will. They force the rightful pair of conscious and subconscious spirit occupants out of the physical body in order to gain control of the brain; but because the subconscious spirit and its attached conscious spirit are connected to the physical body by a cord, they cannot be cut off from it while the physical body is still alive. The disembodied spirits, on the other hand, cannot connect themselves directly to the physical body; they can only attach themselves indirectly to the invisible substance thread-like network surrounding the physical body. Once they have succeeded in attaching themselves to the network, they become “fixtures” to the physical body “house” and are towed along by the victim where ever he travels. These disembodied spirits, also known as “eating companions” because they feed off the victim’s vital force, are the source of the unexplainable urges or compulsions the victim feels and against which he struggles. Episodes of mental struggles, (see lili), observed in one diagnosed with schizophrenia, are actually battles of will between the malicious spirits of darkness, (see po), and the rightful spirit occupant of the besieged physical body; the evil spirits are attempting to pervert the victim, who resists. The invader spirits push at or jostle each other as each tries to gain control of the victim’s brain. As different spirits, by turns, succeed in seizing control, the victim evinces changes of mind or opinion.

The law of attraction applies to spirit possession. As like attracts like, one attracts spirit types according to the types of thoughts he continually harbors. Evil thoughts attract evil spirits who attach themselves to the evil-thinking person so that he becomes increasingly evil. Unless expelled, these vampire spirits are permanently attached to the victim and feed off the vital force of the victim; “drinking” from the pool of mana water or vital force inside of the brain.

The mechanism of a spirit attack by a kahuna anaana is as follows:

(1) The kahuna anaana (sorcerer) creates an effigy/doll resembling the victim, (see kii).

(2) The kahuna anaana procures something that belongs to the victim, such as hair clippings, and affixes it to the effigy; thus creating an invisible thread link between the effigy and the victim.

(3) Holding the effigy in one hand, the kahuna anaana sends his mana water/ vital force out through that hand causing it to flow along the invisible thread link connecting the effigy to the victim. One peculiar property of vital force is that it goes where a conscious mind directs it as though it were a sentient being.

(4) The kahuna anaana then commands his enslaved spirits to follow the invisible thread link to the victim much as a hunter commands his bloodhounds to follow the invisible scent trail to the quarry. The kahuna’s vital force, flowing along the thread link, feeds the spirits as they travel along the “trail” to the victim. Once the spirits have reached and entered the victim, the kahuna ceases sending his vital force because the victim now provides the spirits with vital force.

(5) The enslaved spirits do not attack the kahuna anaana because in his other hand he  holds the broad, sword-like leaves of the ti plant. Like swords, the leaves have the power to rend the enslaved spirit bodies, causing a “hemorrhaging” of their vital force. Hence, the image of demons shrinking back with dread as they observe the ti leaves, (see li). The enslaved spirits’ bodies cannot manufacture vital force. Only living physical bodies, which these disembodied spirits no longer possess, can produce vital force from food. The only way these spirits can obtain the vital force they need is by feeding off a living human or animal host; hence they are referred to as vampire spirits.

Once the vampire spirits have taken possession of a person, he is in no longer in control of himself. He is powerless to rid himself of his captors; and completely helpless. It is only  through the actions of a kahuna exorcist, aided by his Superconscious High Self, that the wrongful “tenants” can be “evicted”.

He who desires to be instructed in the rite of exorcism will be tested by his High Self as to his fitness for this duty. While he is yet a student, he will undergo worldly temptations, (see ao). On those occasions, he should regard with reverence his Higher Power and obey his Superconscious High Self’s instructions as to his duty and conduct.
