Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In this third book of the publisher's "Fundamentals" series, Santa Fe-based Huna scholar Berney approaches a subject almost entirely disregarded in modern writings for a general audience: Hawaiian religion and spirituality. Huna spirituality, as Berney seems to understand it, can be a little difficult to differentiate from the New Age practices of the newer religions and meditation styles, and some may be frustrated by her rather general and nonscholarly approach, but it may be valuable for many libraries to have a first book on this little-known subject. For larger collections strong in spirituality.

I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone that is interested in HUNA as a way of life.
I wish to commend Ms. Berney for being the only HUNA author that began in the steps of Max Freedom Long (MFL) for gathering information from Hawaiian sources and including a subset of the Akua (deities) the Hawaiians acknowledged.
"Hawaiian Magic And Spirituality" Scott Cunningham has a more complete list of the Akua, a list of various types of kahunas. and even information about the little people (the menehune) of Hawaii.
To be an effective HUNA practitioner you must bring the three selves into harmony. Ms. Berney gives simple exercizes in assisting the three selves reach harmony and balance.
Each of the three selves has a distinct job to do in crafting an effective HUNA prayer action.
The Uhane (middle self) decides what will be prayed for. Select your prayer picture wisely. Choose a prayer picture as if the prayer has already been manifested (This allows the Aumakua (high self) to use the path of least resistance to manifest your prayer.
The Unihipili (low or basic self) gathers a surcharge of mana (Hawaiian term for universal lifeforce energy), then sends the energy and the prayer picture to the Aumakua.
The Aumakua will take the surcharge and mana, and ramp it up to mana loa, and uses the prayer picture, and the mana loa to bring your prayer picture into manifestation on the physical plane.
Most of the prayer actions fail because the Unihipili has complexes and fixations (guilt, fear, shame, wrong ideas about money, etc), and feels unworthy of requesting help, and will not send the prayer picture and mana to the Aumakua. The Aumakua tries to maintain harmony and balance, and will not assist in prayer actions that violate harmony and balance.

I'm not from Hawaii, so I don't know anything about whether Huna has a Hawaiian origin or not and, as a practical matter, the origins of the concept don't really concern me. This book offers practical advice on expanding your spiritual life in a way that is not tied down by the strictures of the Christian Church (I'm not attacking the Church, but some people want the freedom to seek an alternative). In my opinion, the best part of the book is the extended, final chapter entitled "Huna for Everyday." This chapter contains 80 pages of practical advice on using Huna techniques to address everyday problems.

Format: Paperback
FUNDAMENTALS OF HAWAIIAN MYSTICISM is an outstanding book that describes practical ways for harnessing the powers of Huna in your life. Charlotte Berney details numerous interesting and useful exercises for manifesting and creating improved balance in your life by working with the basic principles of Huna, the spiritual and mystical teachings and traditions of Hawaii. Berney describes how you can find lost things by communicating with your basic self, and how you can arrange to meet your soul mate by working with your high self. She shares some essential tips for effective prayer that are bound to be helpful for everyone, and outlines an extraordinarily powerful Hawaiian technique for manifesting called the "Ha Rite". I love the sections of this book dedicated to releasing all manner of negative energies in order to better live the most fulfilling possible life, and appreciate the inclusion of so many clearly explained techniques and exercises.

This book is a pure diamond when it comes to Huna, and I wouldn't hesitate to call it the best beginner to intermediate book on practical everyday Huna currently in print.

Great especially for beginners in Huna or Hawaiian mysticism, whatever you name it. Touches basics of more aspects of Hawaiian mysticism than other Huna books. It doesn't suffer neither from historical speculations, nor from being mixed up with other shamanic or spiritual systems, both deficiencies found in most other books on topic.

Deals with positive speech; eliminating blocks, complexes and negativity; communication between Three Selves, mana gathering, Huna prayer, cutting aka cords, charging amulets, and much much more.

Someone said: "...do not go to the past for all the information and answers because the vibration has already changed." Charlotte Berney delivers the practical Huna for the vibration of today.

She builds upon good research, the practical drills come from traditions of Clark Wilkerson, Max Freedom Long and David Kaonohiokala Bray.

To previous reviewers:

L. Power: 7 rules of the Huna philosophy are only in Serge Kahili King's tradition of Huna. I personally haven't missed them at all (though nothing wrong with them ). Also I don't agree on Urban Shaman being better book, though it is a fine book for sure. But that's just a matter of opinion, different books suit better to different people with different personalities and goals.

Richard M. Wong: Not a single word in your "review" was about this book. In the spirit of Aloha, be blessed and let your Huna complex be resolved.

Charlotte Berney's Fundamentals Of Hawaiian Mysticism provides an important philosophical coverage of Hawaiian mysticism, linking Huni and the science of prayer to other Hawaiian mystical concepts, from meditation to healing. Case histories blend with overall history and coverage of techniques. A superbly presented introduction to all aspects of Hawaiian mysticism.
