Piko, Hawaiian Crown of Mana

Look to the Source

In Hawaii the essence of the center of knowledge and wisdom are Pikos (crowns or summits).
Na piko 'ekolu, the three main Pikos, in our bodies represent the Lokahi Triangle of harmony. The crown piko or po'o, which is soft when we are born, connects us with Aumakua (ancestral spirits). The navel Piko relates to the earth and our Ohana (family). The Ma’i or genital Piko presents the future. Pikos are the summits, similar to chakras, from, which everything else moves.

The pikos in our bodies are similar to the Hawaiian concept of the Lokahi Triangle which refers to the balanced relationship between spirit, nature and humanity. Each element of the Lokahi Triangle contributes to spiritual and physical well being as well as to universal harmony.

Many Pikos can be found in nature on the Hawaiian Islands. The most sacred Piko is Mauna Kea on the Big Island. It is the highest mountain in the Us and believed to connect Hawaii to the heavens.

Maile, the Hawaiian lei of eternal love, represents the umbilical cord to the spiritual world.

The umbilical cord of a newborn child also is referred to as Piko. Following Hawaiian custom, the parents took their baby’s Piko (umbilical cord) to a lava field where they placed it in a hole and covered it with a rock. They believed that the Mana (spiritual energy) of the lava would bless their children with a long and prosperous life and root them to their ancestral lands.

When the Pikos in our bodies are balanced, we enter a state of peacefulness, love, confidence and harmony where we connect with Ola (life force) and build Mana (spiritual energy).

Menehune Boy Piko was created in the spirit of the Lokahi Triangle of harmony.

The Divine Call of the Hawaiian Conch Shell

The pure sound of the Hawaiian conch shell echoes across the ‘Aina (land) calling Puhi, the Menehune Guardian Angel to earth. Puhi is named after the sacred Hawaiian Conch Shell, which invokes blessings of the divine.
Her home is Lanikeha, the high sky. The heavenly light of Puhi’s conch shell candle illuminates the paths of the Menehune’s lives on earth.
The Menehunes know Puhi always watches over them enlightening their lives with her angelic presence. Hearing the divine blow of the Hawaiian Conch Shell in the distance, the Menehunes know Puhi is near. Sometimes she allows them a glance at the heavenly glow of her Conch Shell candle or a glimpse of her angelic white feather wings passing by to remind them how brightly the Aloha spirit is shining from their own souls.
All they have to do is call and Puhi appears offering her wisdom and guidance.

Welcome Puhi as your guardian angel! She is devoted to protecting and guiding you on your life’s journey. 

Puhi is a one of a kind display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. She is a collector’s item bringing you the spiritual power of Hawaii.

Puhi’s Mana radiates unconditional Aloha.
