ancient wisdomof Hawaii  


While many of us are familiar with the chakra centers that run along our central core at the spinal cord few of us are even aware of the Ao, these energy centers are said to be among the most important of the lost information about the energy body , these centers are said to create and hold the chakra in existence through the tension , interaction and harmony between the centers and to be a representation of a core or primal aspect of ourselves and the universe . 

The Yin Yang  symbol used in the East represents in part the universe held together by the interaction of different polarities the cross of fire represents the grand design of the universes as an interaction of the nine centers or realms of being/Force, the Ao. 

   The Ao centers are located at 

 1 . the crown: top of head -   will 

   divine will , our own personal will and to the guiding force present in all matter, intention. 

  2. right eye: center of eye socket-  time 
 time in the abstract, timing or sequence of action, timelessness, real time ,the illusion of   time 

  3. right shoulder: about a quarter of an inch into the body go over about 2 inches toward the  arm from the nipple and up about 1 inch below the collar bone 
  -venturing   beginning new actions, entering new realms whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual

   4. right hip: center of hip socket  -Action 
 usually denotes action in the middle of the period or situation being considered 

5. Perineum: ( halfway between the anus and the genitals ) -  anchoring 
        This  can refer to ending action but more often refers to taking steps to ensure that the effects offense actions are real and lasting ,the effects of an action of in nature becoming lasting 

6. left hip: center of hip socket - contemplation 
  Meditation in general, consideration and reflection on the actions one has taken 

 7. left shoulder:  about a quarter of an inch into the body go over about 2 inches toward the arm from the nipple and up about 1 inch below the collar bone -  Appreciation 
 The quality of appreciation in general ,especially appreciation of the divine, as well as the  appreciation of the results of action taken. 

8. left eye: Harmony/Justice  center of eye socket -   ho Oponopono harmony Justice   Making things right, For beginning purposes refers to divine plan and that human justice  should be a reflection of the divine plan a profound and difficult to translate concept central to Hawaiian Mysticism ,I have seen it translated as family therapy and as divine  completeness and perfection also. 

9 . the Heart :THe Heart, Love divine Love, universal love , personal and interpersonal love the qualities that give rise to   and emerge from love 


   The cross of fire may be  familiar to us as a common apparently  decorative motif in Hawaiian art and crafts  with many variations ,this being  four crosses around a central cross.  Different patterns of these crosses have different meanings many of which may have been lost.
 The crosses around the outside here symbolize the highest of the energies of the four elements Earth, Water, Fire, Air, the cross in the center is Spirit.  This is just the simplest of probable multilayered meanings .

 This fairly simple symbol contains hidden and revealed layers upon layers of the teachings  at the center of Huna . The Energies and information symbolized by this figure represent  a  guide to Understanding the Universe and humanity's part in it. The cross of Fire is central to the Huna philosophy of life and to the huna system of Self empowerment and creation  That it might be considered to be at the core of Huna Teachings. I will begin the explanation at the entry levels . the Chakra system is familiar to many Metaphysical and alternate health practitioners. The chakra are by no means the only energy centers.
Huna is aware of many others including the AO different schools of Kahuna teachings do give different  energy centers and priorities . I will repeat the caution I was given by some that if you do the Cross of fire procedure you do it as given and do not experiment with the various energy channels unless you are clearly  guided to do so by your Aumakua  your Huna Spiritual guides and /or ancestors.
The exercise is to go around the cross focusing on each Ao energy center for about a
  minute each, start at the crown and to go around in the order given but after doing the left  eye to go up to the crown a second time back to the left eye to the right eye and from there to the heart chakra. 

  crossofire2                    The energy centers of the Cross of Fire : 1. crown 2. right eye 3. right shoulder 4. right hip 5. perineum 6. left hip 7. left shoulder 8. left eye 9. crown 10. left eye 11. right eye 12. heart 

 Focus on each ao in turn . Some Huna traditions  may do a simple spiral others simply   focus on the crown, heart, perineum and the four corners of shoulders and hips .
  You may feel energy run as you do this or you may not. the opening of these energy
 centers can lead to profound transformation and evolution at all levels of your being. 
 The traditional Huna way of working with the cross of fire is to First, teach a procedure  and only to explain it after considerable work has been done. 
  Some Huna traditions do use energetic attunements or spiritual initiations to facilitate and amplify the affects of these and other practices.
Your guides and Spiritual teachers may also be able bring the initiation into you if it is in your highest good. Doing  the exercise given above will also help to open these centers and channels . whether or not you have been initiated.
