About The Kingdom of Hawaiʻi
Since ancient times, the people who found their way to the Hawaiian Archipelago have been strong, fierce, persistent and determined. It was not an easy place to find. Located in the center of the Pacific Ocean, the first to come had to be very gifted in sailing, reading the signs of the ocean birds, the currents and the sky, and to have great courage. These traits carry over into The Kingdom of Hawai‘i today. Ancient traditions and culture bring forward tremendous belief in spirit as well as humankind’s connection directly to the ‘Aina (land) and all living things.
The Indigenous traditions of the Kanaka Maoli include connecting to Akua (Creator) through the Way of Knowing. The mind includes the subconscious, the conscious and the super conscious. The ancient belief which continues today is that the subconscious has a pathway that can be established which bypasses the conscious and connects directly to the superconscious. The superconscious connection then opens up to flow from Akua (Creator). This allows dream time activity, self-comprehension for the individual’s purpose in life, and for ongoing direction, inspiration and verification of truth. This connection is the Mana Pathway.
Mana is the energy that exists in all things. The Mana Pathway allows the flow of that energy into the individual, through them and then to Akua (Creator). In this way, it is said that the “Mana is rising”.
This tremendous flow of energy leaves people glowing when they visit Hawai‘i. Many leave and count down the days until they can come again. For those fortunate to live permanently as Citizens of The Kingdom of Hawai‘i, this flow becomes part of existence, taught to them as small children and impacting their life.
This connection together allows the expression of love among the People. This is an all-encompassing love, a compassion, a respect, and an affection for all. This is Aloha. It is difficult to describe, but anyone experiencing it knows that it feels wonderful.
There simply is no other place on earth like it.
E komo mai! The Kingdom of Hawai‘i welcomes you!
Nou Ke, Akua, Ke Aupuni O Hawai‘i
Hawai‘i is a Sacred Place
The Kingdom of Hawai‘i is a very significant place. It is not defined by man. It is not a territory to be disputed for ownership. It is the ‘Aina, the Land, given in ancient times as a home for the Iwi Kupunas (descendants of our Ancestors) and Citizens of The Kingdom of Hawai‘i. Those born here feel the land even when they are away. It is part of who they are. The Mana, the energy of creation, rises from the earth, through the People, then connects to Akua in the great Way of Knowing.
