This journal entry is about one of my CDs named Healing through Ho'oponopono, Divine Child Within which is a practice that comes from ancient Hawaiian wisdom teachings. 

The single format MP3 of the Heal with Ho'oponopono song by Lauren may be ordered directly on our site by going to the listen and/or buy page.  Also available in a single Spanish version 'Sana Con Ho'oponopono'. 

The full CD Healing through Ho'oponopono, Divine Child Within is a mind and heart Return-to-Balance Tool lasting 30 minutes.  It includes an instrumental sing along version as well as songs from the Tree of Life to bring self-balance and peace.  This full version can be obtained by emailing lauren@laurensongs.com.


How I learned about Ho'oponopono: When I lived in Maui, I  attended the Ho'oponopono workshops taught by those who were directly trained by Morrnah Simeona. Although Ho'oponopono is from ancient Hawaiian times, it was Morrnah Simeona who began to direct people to use this wisdom again, as well as update it for modern times. Morrnah began an organization that teaches in Hawaii, called Self I-Dentity. It is the combination of working with this Self I-Dentity group on Maui, as well as with contact with Dr. Joe Vitale (Zero Limits) and his work with Dr. Hew Len that I began to practice the use of Ho'oponopono myself.  I wrote this song as a musical assistance for myself and others so this wise Hawaiian knowing may more easily penetrate into our daily life.

Information about the CD: I created this CD to assist people in balancing themselves, which means to go from a state of feeling upset, back to a state of peacefulness or acceptance. As my credo is to go to the ancient wisdom and find the barebones of truth and then create a fresh perspective that is alive for today's soul, so came the birth of this CD. The CD assists in creating peace with (balancing): 1. the self with others (thoughts, emotions or events about others) 2. the self with the male and female aspect, i.e., the doing and non-doing, the yin and the yang. 3. the child within, the Mother aspect, and also the Father aspect. This can also be described as the subconscious, conscious, and supra conscious. The song itself will effortlessly imbed in the mind a healing technique for the listener that will return peace to the soul (balance). Humbly saying, even just to yourself, "I love you, I am sorry, please forgive me, thank you" opens the heart, frees the soul and can create peace. The beauty of this process, the miracle of this work, is that we do not need to say these words to anyone else. We do not need to do anything, but work with the power of this technique ourselves. The healing occurs because we do not place blame, we do not need to find fault in another person or situation or ask anyone for anything. Think of an issue that upsets you, or you can briefly write it down. Listen to the Ho'oponopono song.  Notice your feelings as you listen to the song. It's amazing how effortlessly this ancient Hawaiian technique can help us to feel better about what was upsetting. I'd love to know what happens, please email me the results if you chose. Healing/balance can occur when we recognize that our emotions, thoughts or events occurring that very day are not separate from us, but are connected to us. One Spirit runs through ALL That IS. Oneness is more than a saying. It is a fundamental truth and our ally if we let it be so. We need not fix someone else. If something or someone upsets us (disturbs our balance), we fix ourselves by 'cleaning' with Ho'oponopono. Peace begins with ourselves. Miracles unfold from there. Also on the CD are two additional songs originally published in the Tree of Life CD: The Middle Pillar song is an ancient technique which will balance the male and female aspect of oneself and bring the Divine down to Earth. The One with All Creation song will bring peace and unity to the child, mother and father of ONEself. .

We invite you to a fun filled evening at the MACC in Maui. Within a theatrical presentation, "Bach" and "Telemann" display a rivalry as to who is the better composer.

Called Bach for Coffee, when coffee was an illegal substance, Here's a link describing my part in the evening:

March 27, 2010 Medieval Music Concert at Makena Church, South Maui You are invited to come hear the rare and unique Monteverdi Duets performed by Lauren Pomerantz (soprano), Sarah Oppenheimer(soprano), and Beth Wills (piano). Sung in medieval Italian, the duets are extremely passionate love songs that will delight within a concert also featuring a medieval instrumental group, medieval small chorus, and criticially acclaimed soloist Bob Wills.

We are thrilled to say that the newly redesigned Jewels of the Sephardim, Songs from Medieval Spain is now available for preview and purchase on our site. You can hear samples from all the songs, and purchase any song as a download or purchase the CD directly from CD baby. We hope you enjoy the re-release of this album that is beloved by many fans. Please write to us and tell us what you think. One of the favorite through the years has been the Lauren's arrangement of O Que Mueve Mezes which tells the story of a wonderfully joyous birth. Many people have loved or been attracted to different selections on this kaleidescope of human feelings, still alive today. We'd love to know, which song touches you the most.
I am also thrilled to release professionally for the first time Ecstatic Communion. It took alot of searching to find the right cover and we chose the visionary art work of Jean-Luc Bozolli. This is one of my favorite musical collaborations with it having both a profound and uplifting musical offering; a sublime transcendental effect where the singing is soaring and deep vocals without specific words matched perfectly with the talented Paul Armitage's lush symphonic creation. You can listen for free currently to a 10 minute excerpt as the 2nd selection on my home page. Hopefully you will love it and want the longer entire 58 minutes when you want to meditate, relax, heal, or receive a blissful massage.
Do you know about the Kauai Music Festival for composers and songwriters? I just returned from this year’s conference and feel greatly inspired by some of the wonderful music industry professionals, musicians, singers and songwriters there. It was great to learn from other musicians performing a variety of styles. The festival is supported to a large degree by BMI, and other top notch professionals from T.V., film, and the music industry spoke on panels, lead workshops and meet with attendees. My healing CD, Tree of Life, based on the ancient knowledge from the Kaballah, was evaluated by several professionals and I am thrilled by the encouragement I received on it’s musical and healing qualities. Please check out this CD if you need to relax, be uplifted, or want music for yoga classes.
In 1995, I was asked to perform the sephardic wedding songs from my CDs in a glorious outdoor estate in Maryland. It turned out to be one of my most memorable and enlivening musical 'jobs'. I entered a beautiful arbor and to my greatest delight, I was seated with the other musicians Isaac Stern, the legendary violinist, and his son. Together the three of us filled the air with sweet, sensuous and tender music as the marriage ceremony took place. After listening to my songs, Isaac Stern turned to me and said "wonderful". At that moment, I experienced elation and a pivotal moment of validation as a musician. I felt that I had 'arrived'. The green light for GO had been turned on.
