The healers from Hawaii.

Hawaii-apart from earning the name of the most preferred destination in the world, it also is known for its 'Kahunas'-who are said to have great healing capacities. They are mostly priests and teachers.

Kahuna is a Hawaiian word, defined in the Pukui & Elbert Dictionary as "Priest, sorcerer, magician, wizard, minister, expert in any profession."

Forty different types of kahuna are listed in the book, "Tales from the Night Rainbow". Kamakau lists more than 20 in the healing professions alone, including for example Kahuna la'au lapa'au, an expert in herbal medicine and kahuna haha, an expert in diagnosing illnesses.

In India, such healers are called 'Siddhars'. They (kahunas and Siddhars) are also said to possess supernatural powers, knowledge of mathematics, astronomy, and astrology, and some have ability to change the future.

By now, I see a transformation taking place everywhere in the world that takes the people more towards spirituality and belief in the powers of ascended masters. In India, there are several stories of these ascended masters who are actually guardian angels.

"In Hawaii, if a Kahuna needs information concerning the future or any other aspect of life, he
prays to his aumakua, his guardian spirit. The aumakua, according to Hawaiian belief, is the spirit of a departed ancestor, who with loving concern guides and protects you. It is thought of as a guardian angel hovering above you....."
