When we were in Maui I went out to the Hauola Rock. Imagining how incredible it would be to give birth there. When I labored with my own babies I would visualize waves with my contractions. Rolling in and retreating back. It brought me so much peace. As far back as the 14th and 15th centuries, the ancient Hawaiians made use of this special stone, which they named Hauola (translated loosely to mean extending life and health). In those times, it was used as a birthing stone for ali‘i (royalty). When a chiefess was ready to give birth, her attendants would help her into the stone cahai, assist in delivering her child, and witness the birth.
In more recent times, it is believed that this stone was useful for
healing purposes as it is located in an area where both fresh and salt water mix, such waters being known for healing powers. Ailing people would sit in the seat with the waves washing over them, while offering ceremonial prayers to regain health." I would love to be closer to this stone and find my way out more often to sit and meditate ❤️ #Maui #hauolastone #hauola #sunset #hawaii #ancient #ancientbeliefs #relaxing #laboring #ocean #connection #mauihawaii #lahaina #stone #healingpower #healingpowerofnature #nature #solitude #reflection
