NA HUNAHUNA O KA NAAUAO (PARTICLES OF KNOWLEDGE)
THE HUNA CODE
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.
Jesus left a great treasure to the world. That treasure is not hidden in the ground. It is not hidden in a cave. It is hidden in his words.
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 32
(IOANE, Mokuna 16 : Pauku 32
Behold the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
Aia hoi, e hiki ana ka manawa, ano hoi ua hiki mai, e hoopuehuia kela mea keia mea o oukou ma kona wahi, a e haalele oukou ia’u e hookahi wale no; aole hoi au e hookahi wale ana, no ka mea, o ka Makua pu me au.
…and yet I am not alone, because
...aole hoi au e hookahi wale ana, no ka mea,
In this passage, the High Self (Light) exhorts us to study the Hawaiian language for the knowledge and instruction it contains. Our High Selves will test us to see whether we are fit to be instructed in the knowledge of Huna and whether we are fit to assume the duty that comes with the knowledge of Huna. The conscious middle self and the Super conscious High Self understand the part each of the three selves plays in helping the middle self obtain the materialization of things, circumstances, or conditions and the necessity of joint cooperation among all three selves in order to accomplish this. The subconscious low self; however, is incapable of understanding these things because it lacks the power of reason, yet it plays a vital role in the prayer process for physical manifestation. If the low self fails to do its part during the process, then the middle self prayer does not reach the High Self. Here lies one reason for the unanswered prayer. Hence, the necessity of training the low self to do its part even though it is incapable of understanding why. Training implies obedience. The conscious middle self must not only train his subconscious low self to obey the command to send vital force/energy to the High Self, but must also train the low self to cease “burning in the fires” of jealousy and/or anger in the case of an offense committed against him. The emotions of anger and jealousy originate within the subconscious low self’s childlike mind. The reason the conscious middle self must train his subconscious low self to stop “feeding the fires” of anger and jealousy is because the middle self is also swept up in the heat of the low self’s jealousy and anger. Here lies the danger to the middle self as well as to the low self. Should the middle self take the next step and try to get revenge by maliciously ordering his low self to convey to the High Self vital force carrying thought-form pictures of injury to the offender, his prayer to the High Self is made in vain; the High Self will refuse; will reject the middle and low selves as being “not fit for use”; and will abandon the two selves, leaving them as “orphans”. The consequence to the middle and low selves as a result of the departure of the High Self is complete destitution, including destitution of ability. One lacks even the ability to save himself from complete destitution. The seeds of punishment for the prayer of revenge come immediately. Through an action of the High Self mind, the vital force is returned as a whirling vortex of mana “water” descending through the “pipe” and bringing with it the revenge “seeds “to be implanted in the low self subconscious’ “garden” mind, to grow and come to fruition there. The petitioner’s very words, spoken to his High Self, of the thing he would have the High Self inflict upon the offender are returned to him as seeds to grow and fructify in his own life instead. He has passed sentence upon himself and will suffer the fate he had intended for someone else. Be forewarned. One who succumbs to the temptation to misuse the knowledge of Huna and disobeys the High Self’s prime directive not to use the knowledge for harmful purposes, has let his low self, who is like a child, take charge of his “house” because it is a low self (childish) trait to be defiant and refuse to obey. For the High Self, the question of obedience is pivotal in judging someone’s fitness for instruction in the knowledge of Huna and fitness for the duty that comes with this knowledge. A practitioner of the anaana, otherwise referred to as the death prayer, has disobeyed his High Self; he has misused the power given to him through the knowledge of Huna; that is, he has used it for evil purposes. If the definition of prayer is the supplication to a Higher Power or God, then the expression “death prayer” is a misnomer. The death prayer, by definition, is not a prayer because the kahunaanana does not supplicate his Higher Self; he understands that his High Self will have no part in harming or killing someone. The kahunaanana is actually a sorcerer or one whose power is gained through the assistance and/or control of evil spirits. The High Self is grieved, as a parent is grieved, whenever his child commits an evil act. (Another name of the High Self is Aumakua or I Parent.). Learn to recognize a jealous person; he is one who overly praises you and the things you have acquired, secretly coveting your possessions and/or the things accompanying them. He is the kind of person likely to perform or have performed the anaana against you. The kahuna anaana, or sorcerer, traps and enslaves a host of disembodied spirits (birds) and sends the host of spirits to enter into a person to feed on his vital force, draining it away faster than his low self subconscious mind can replenish it, until the host is dead. These evil spirits puncture the invisible substance body of the low self so that vital force or mana begins to leak out of it. As vampires, they “drink” until satiated. The symptom of one afflicted with the anaana is great fatigue with tremors as his life force is drained away.
To deny. To refuse to do a thing. To not; not to do. (The High Self will refuse a petitioner’s request to inflict harm or death.).
Burning of jealousy or anger. (Two motives for which the death prayer is performed.).
To deny; refuse; make void. Not to do a thing. In vain. Inability. The want; the lack; the destitution of a thing. (Not only will the High Self refuse to grant a petitioner’s request to inflict harm or death, but the High Self will also leave the petitioner destitute of ability. Destitution manifests in forms other than poverty; i.e., inability. To be destitute of ability to undertake one’s life pursuits is a severe punishment for misusing the knowledge of Huna by causing harm or death to someone.).
To call for a thing desired. Traveling food. (Mana/vital force.) To stretch out the hand to trouble or afflict. (If one, in the fires of jealousy or anger (see a), prays and sends mana/vital force to his High Self for the purpose of harming someone, his High Self (see ao) will refuse the petition (see aole); reject the conscious self as being unfit for instruction in the knowledge of Huna; and will abandon the two lesser selves (see lele below).
A contraction for lele. To leave; to abandon. To reject as not fit for use. (The High Self rejects and abandons the petitioner who dares to pray to the High Self for harm/death to befall someone.).
Light (Symbol of the High Self). To charge strictly. To learn to do a thing; to study, as a language. (The High Self’s exhortation to study a language of the Huna Code; a Polynesian language.). To teach; instruct. Knowledge; instruction. (The High Self will instruct one in the knowledge of Huna.). To prove. To try one’s conduct or fitness for a duty. (Before one can be instructed in the knowledge of Huna, he will first be tested by his High Self as to his fitness for this duty. To enlighten; instruct in one’s duty or conduct. (The High Self will instruct one as to his duty and conduct.). Beware; to warn. To regard with reverence; to obey. (This is the warning that we who are instructed in the knowledge of Huna should revere this instruction and obey his High Self.).
To give instruction to one how to act. To show or point out a way for one to go. To practice; to repeat frequently. To accustom. (Our High Selves will train us in the knowledge of Huna. For our part, we must practice what we are taught until we become proficient.).
Name of a large sea bird. (Spirits are referred to as “birds”.).
To be bereaved of parents; to become orphans. (The two lesser selves are abandoned by the High Self/I Parent “to become orphans” if the conscious self misuses the knowledge of Huna; i.e., uses the knowledge for harmful purposes.).
The effect for a cause. (The consequence of disobeying the High Self by using the knowledge of Huna for harmful purposes is to be abandoned by the High Self, see oa.). Traveling food. (Transferred vital force.).
A small person. (Symbol of the low self). Inability to speak intelligibly. (A small person who is unable to speak intelligibly refers to the subconscious low self, or the self who cannot speak. The conscious middle self is the self who can speak. The Super conscious High Self is the Self who speaks silently.). Mischievous. To defy. (Traits of the subconscious low self.).The small roots of trees or plants; also called weli. Weli means to take root or to have many roots.
To return; to go back.(Vital force sent up to the Super conscious High Self with the thought form picture seeds is returned by the High Self to the subconscious self of the sender.).
To send back. To restore a thing to its former place. To return an answer. (The return of the vital force by the High Self to the two lesser selves. The returning vital force from the High Self carries the answer to the conscious self’s petition in the form of a thought form seedling or “starter plant”, (see weli above), of the thing desired, to be planted and come to fruition in the “garden body of the subconscious self, see aa above. Good feeling; joy; gladness. (The indication to the middle self that his prayer request has been granted by his High Self is an upwelling of the feeling of joy from his low self. To change one thing for another. (The High Self exchanges new conditions for the old; i.e., the petition has been granted.).
To transfer. To carry or cause to be conveyed. To bring; to present. To put away, as money at interest. (If the High Self grants the petitioner’s request, the return flow of vital force will bring thought form “seedlings” sprouted by the High Self to be planted inside the subconscious self’s “garden body” to grow and come to fruition there. When the “fruit” has matured, the petitioner’s desired manifestation will make its appearance in his life.).
To descend, as from a higher to a lower place. To bring down, as a punishment. (Should the conscious middle self, burning in the fires of jealousy or anger, order his subconscious low self to transfer to his Super conscious High Self a flow of vital force conveying thought-form picture seeds of injury/harm to someone who has offended him, his prayer to the High Self is made in vain. The very thing he has petitioned his High Self to inflict upon the offender is boomeranged to him. The High Self returns the flow of vital force/mana carrying the petitioner’s “revenge seeds”. The seeds take root and grow in his own subconscious self, eventually coming to fruition and making its appearance in his conscious life. The petitioner has passed sentence upon himself and will suffer the same injury he had intended for another. He has brought down upon himself the punishment for misusing the knowledge of Huna.).
In. To beget. A kind of fruit. (Inside the subconscious mind’s “garden” body is where the fruits of all manifestation grow and come to maturity. The implication here is that one should think carefully about the kinds of fruits he is nurturing in the garden of his subconscious mind.).
I (The High Self.). A current. (The flow of vital force.). A circular motion, such as caused by an eddy in a river or ocean. (A vortex.). A tract suitable for growing food. (The “garden” body of the subconscious mind where vital force “food” is grown.).An action of mind. (A peculiar property of vital force is that is flows where the conscious mind directs it, as if it were a sentient being. Through the action of mind of the Super conscious High Self, the vortex of returning vital force, carrying the thought form seeds of manifestation, descends from the High Self into the physical body to enter the subconscious mind self’s “garden body” where the seeds of manifestation will take root, sprout and grow.).
Other; another; new; strange. Not the same; different from the one specified. (A new personality makes its appearance in the victim of a possession; that is, a new spirit has taken control of the victim.).From a place; away. (Evil spirits transmigrate to the victim from another human or animal body.). Previously unknown, unseen or unheard of. (Previously unknown in the life of a person, demons make their appearance at some point, usually in adolescence or young adulthood. To enter. (Evil spirits enter into their victim).
Only one in distinction from many. (Of the multitude of spirit “claimants” in possession of a host body, only one is the rightful occupant. The kahuna exorcist determines which one is the rightful occupant through a process of elimination.). To make a thing to resemble something else. (Refers to the kahuna sorcerer’s effigy of his victim.). To separate a group into individuals. (The kahuna exorcist, in order to determine which of the multitude of spirit claimants in possession of the victim’s body is the rightful occupant, goes through a process of elimination. See previous post.).
To cause to enter.(Refers to a spirit attack undertaken by a kahunaanana. The sorcerer kahuna sends enslaved disembodied spirits to locate and enter his intended victim. See the mechanism of this process in the post, John 16:33 – “In the world ye shall have tribulation.”).
Someone. (The intended victim of the kahunaanana in the “death prayer”.
To cause to kill. (The performance of the “death prayer”.).
A flowing away. To droop; to be weak. (Weak from the draining away of the life force by vampire spirits.).
To produce, as food on the table. (The kahunaanana puts out “food” to attract “birds”. Food is the symbol for vital force. Birds are symbolic for spirits. The kahunaanana sets up a “live bait” or a living human being producing vital force to attract the vampire spirits.).
To place a bird in such a position as to tempt or catch another one. To ensnare. (Refers to the “live bait” the kahuna sorcerer uses to attract disembodied spirit “birds” in order to trap them. The live bait is an embodied subconscious spirit, one who still makes vital force or “food” which attracts disembodied spirits who no longer have physical bodies to manufacture vital force and so must steal it from the living.).
A flowing away. (Due to the multitude of vampire spirits attached to their victim, the life force of the victim of the kahuna sorcerer’s death prayer is drained out of the physical body faster than its subconscious spirit can replace it. This results in death of the physical body.
To furnish; to supply. To provide food for a journey. To furnish for service. To cause to enter. (The sorcerer kahuna supplies his captured and enslaved disembodied spirits with vital force from his own subconscious’ spirit body to feed them, enabling them to complete the journey to his intended victim. The enslaved spirits follow an invisible substance link connecting the sorcerer to the victim much as a scent hound follows an invisible scent trail to a prey. The reason the spirits do not stray from the link is because the kahunaanana directs his vital force to flow along the link to the victim. A peculiar property of vital force is that it flows wherever the conscious mind directs it, as though it were a sentient being. The spirits “drink” from the flowing vital force, following the flow to the victim. Upon reaching the victim, they enter into and possess his body. At this point, the kahunaanana cuts off the flow of vital force. He no longer needs to provide energy to his enslaved spirits because the victim now provides them with the vital force they need. This is the mechanics of the “death prayer”.
To curse. (Implied reference to the death prayer.). To catch birds in a snare. (Birds symbolize spirits. To catch birds means to trap spirits for the purpose of enslaving them for the death prayer.).
Thick or close together, as men. (Refers to a host of disembodied spirits). To be satisfied; to have enough. (Refers to the disembodied vampire spirits having drunk their fill of someone’s life force.).
A state of being or existing without qualification. (Disembodied spirits are those spirits who did not ascend into their High Selves at the death of their physical bodies. They were not pulled up by their High Selves because they lived their lives indifferent to the moral principles of right character and conduct. At death, these spirits were released from their physical bodies by their High Selves to float in the invisible ocean of life, (see previous post, John 16:33, “but be of good cheer”). They only exist. Nothing more.
A space between two points of time. A lifetime of a person.(A space between two lifetimes refers to persons who lived at different times. The host of vampire spirits is composed of the spirits of those who lived at different times.).
To depart from one, as the spirit of a dying person.
To be deceived; to be lead astray easily by one. To influence to wrong. A temptation to evil. To entrap. (The conscious middle self is deceived; lead astray; influenced to wrong; tempted to do evil and ultimately is trapped by evil spirits.).
Persons without a home; homeless.(In the Huna Code, the physical body is often referred to as a “house”. Disembodied spirits no longer have a physical body “house”; hence, they are “homeless”.).
To move or go often from place to place.(Disembodied spirits travel continually seeking hosts from whom they can steal vital force.).
To be revenged. (Manifestation of anger). To praise much and covet another’s wealth. (Manifestation of jealousy). Anger and/or jealousy are the two motives for which the anaana or the death prayer is performed. Satisfied, as with food. Having eaten sufficiently. To drink sufficiently. (Vampire spirits “drink” their victim’s vital force until they are satisfied.). Fatigue from hard labor or toil. (Description of the fatigue felt by those who are afflicted with the anaana). To measure in any way. (Refers to judgment by the High Self regarding the middle self’s misuse of the knowledge of Huna; i.e., practicing the anaana.). Grief; sadness; sorrow. The feelings of a parent towards a child that refuses his instructions. (The High Self is often referred to as Aumakua or I Parent. Refers to the Super conscious High Self’s feelings when the conscious middle self disobeys and misuses the knowledge of Huna.).
A kind of sorcery used to procure a curse or death upon one. To be in a tremor, as the muscles after a great fatigue.(One symptom of the anaana is great fatigue because the vital force is being drained away by the multitude of vampire spirits faster than the subconscious self can replace it.).
A hole in the ground which draws off water from the kalo patches. To leak, as water under ground from a kalo patch.(Analogous to vital force leaking from the “garden” body of the subconscious self because of a “hole” or puncture by a vampire spirit.).
To bail water. To cause to perish.(Bled out of the vital/life force due to the great numbers of vampire spirits inside the victim of a possession.).
To strike. To rip open. (Vampire spirits rip open the spirit body of the subconscious self to access the vital force circulating within it.).
To touch; to injure; to meddle with. To hinder; to trouble with unprofitable business. (Actions of evil spirits.).
