Extended Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: I’ve never journaled before in my life. Is this an appropriate starting point?
A: Whether you’re a newbie or you’ve journaled extensively most of your life, the HOPA Journal is a different experience. We offer a clear, concise, and accessible opportunity for you to engage in the world as you’ve never done before - no matter what level you're starting from.

Q: I’ve already tried every journal on the market. What makes this one different?
A: Our journal began with a vision - one of Pure Aloha, born out of the House of Pure Aloha in Hawai'i, extending across the planet. The single goal was to awaken and spread love. Our heart-centered mentors, beta group, and journal creation experts came together to create a product from the heart. It is our greatest desire and intention to offer affection and growth to every human being on the globe. We believe we have created a product to help you do the same.
Q: I don’t really know anything about Hawai'i. Is that okay?
A: Absolutely! You don’t have to. We offer you knowledge and insight into our lifestyle. Everyone is always welcome to experience and partake in (and even enhance!) our culture, values, and mindset. And remember, we are all already connected. We are all part of One World 'Ohana (family), no matter where you were born or currently live!

Q: Can it really be as simple as you say it is to feel better?
A: It certainly can be. Journaling offers the opportunity to connect and express yourself at a deeper level. We have created easy yet investigative prompts for you to cull insight. Writing lets us process our thoughts and feelings differently than just thinking does. Ultimately, the tools we provide you with will assist in your personal clarity. Clarity = growth!
Q: How can I continue my journey of HOPA after I complete the journal?
A: We invite you to join our free Facebook group at HOPA Together, where you can be part of our community. We encourage your questions, personal stories, and triumphs. Additionally, we are in the process of creating supplementary journals and resources to aid in your development.

Q: Should I go through the journal on my own or with others?
A: Both. There are times when solitude is necessary and other times when support and community are essential. Our needs can also differ based on our personality and life situation. There is no one right way, and you can't fail. Luckily, there are a couple ways you can enjoy both solitude and community support in your journaling experience:
1) Find a journal buddy–a friend, partner, or spouse–to also complete their own HOPA Journal.
2) Join our online HOPA Together community to share your experiences, challenges, celebrations, encouragement, and, most of all, your HOPA.
