The Sacred Power of Huna by Rima A. Morrell
Huna is the ancient spiritual practice of the Hawaiian people .
The name Huna however is given to the sacred teachings just recently . It has been originally called Ho’omana which means to make mana . The mana is the life force energy . The Huna focuses at three levels of consciousness . The unihipili - this is the inner emotional part of our conscious . The uhane – the practical conscious . The aumakua – the super-conscious . The miraculous part of the human consciousness . The one that is directly connected to the life force energy .
The practitioners of Huna are the Kahunas .
The Kahunas are healers , teachers and wizards of the Hawaiian sacred practice . The book Tales from the Night Rainbow describes forty types of Kahunas . More than twenty of these are devoted to healing and helping people . The herbalists (Kahuna la'au lapa'au) . Experts of diagnosing illnesses(kahuna haha) . These who can deal with spirits and make them his allies (Poʻi ʻUhane) .
