Huna is THE underpinning 'structure' that I use in the creation of ceremonies or in experiments for shamanic dowsing. It is an extremely exciting combination, huna and dowsing, and there possibly isn't enough time to explore it all but I can try. Endless possibilities await!
"Huna is a Hawaiian word meaning "secret," but it also refers to the esoteric wisdom of Polynesia. Kupua is another Hawaiian word and it refers to a specialized healer who works with the powers of the mind and the forces of nature.
The basic assumptions of Huna are these:
The Seven Principles
1. The World Is What You Think It Is.
2. There are no limits.
3. Energy Flows Where Attention Goes.
4. Now Is The Moment Of Power.
5. To Love Is To Be Happy With (someone or something).
6. All Power Comes From Within.
7. Effectiveness Is The Measure Of Truth.
The Three Selves (or Four)
Another set of assumptions used in Huna is that human behavior and experience can be explained and changed through the interaction of three (sometimes four) selves, aspects or functions:
1. The High Self (Kane, Aumakua), inspires.
2. The Conscious Self (Lono) imagines.
3. The Subconscious Self (Ku) remembers.
4. The Core Self (Kanaloa) wills.
The Four Levels of Reality
A third set of assumptions coming from the kupua tradition divides all experience into four levels or frameworks of beliefs about reality which can be summarized as follows:
1. Everything is objective (Scientific reality).
2. Everything is subjective (Psychic reality).
3. Everything is symbolic (Shamanic reality).
4. Everything is holistic (Mystical reality).
The kupua (Hawaiian shaman) learns to move in and out of these realities in order to change experience more effectively."

And I'm not talking green smoothies and otherwise healthy kind of drinks. Nope. I'm talking Drink Magic! Oh yes. Let's use the power of our mind to set an intent and infuse our drink with it.
So how do you create yourselves a bit of beneficial drink magic, you ask? First choose a drink. It could be anything: water, fruit juice, tea/coffee, alcohol, you name it. The idea is to infuse the drink with your deliberate intention. From past shamanic dowsing experiments, we've already seen how intent has an effect on your energy field. In the case of creating Drink Magic, first just think of a general ' outcome' that you wish for. You could choose love, health, happiness, good luck, success or anything else you want to bless yourself with. Then narrow the intention down to a more specific outcome, should you need one. Having a clear idea about the desired outcome is everything. Be as crystal clear as a pristine mountain lake in what you want to establish with your ' magic potion' .
Then weave an image of the desired outcome and include all five senses in that image: how would the result look like, taste like, sound like, feels like and smells like? Don't worry if you can't imagine all five senses, most people have developed just one or two in this life. Use what you're good at. Now, amalgamate the desired outcome into one powerful feel-intention and/or visual-intention. An image that holds the power of your wish. You could call it the Seed. This seed holds the entire blessing you are about to spike your drink with. In a good way though!
Next step: hold your hands above your drink and bless it by imagining you are dropping that Seed into the chosen drink. Or you can just project the intention with your mind into your liquid of desire. Both ways work. The most powerful minds are those that have the least doubt about the effectiveness. In its most basic form, magic or intention doesn't need much ' decoration'. But on the other hand, creating a 'play for the senses' can help to strengthen believing and thus enhancing the general outcome of the Drink Magic.
Now comes the best part; drinking it. Yay! Steady... do it slowly, savouring every sip, make it count, imagine the intention finding its magical way into every cell of your body, mind and soul - delivering its blessing and starting the manifestation of it. That feels good, doesn't it?
If you are a dowser (or just very intuitive and use your hands - or third eye), try dowsing the circumference of your (or your friend' s) energy field before and after the Drink Magic. Oh and please email results. I would love to know what you found!
May you be happy and healthy! (and now you know why we say ' Cheers' before drinking)
