Lani, the Heaven

The sacred sound of the Pu (conch shell) echoes across the ‘Aina (land) calling Lani, the Menehune Guardian Angel to earth. Lani’s heavenly Mana (spiritual energy) radiates the power of unconditional Aloha (love).
Lani is named after her home Lanikeha, the heaven. The heavenly light of Lani’s candle illuminates the paths of the Menehune’s lives on earth.
The Menehunes know Lani always watches over them enlightening their lives with her angelic presence.
Hearing the divine calling of the Pu in the distance, the Menehunes sense that Lani is near. Sometimes she allows them a glance at the heavenly glow of her 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 Lani appears offering her wisdom and guidance.

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

Lani often rests among the ferns in the serene Hawaiian Ohia forest, worshipping the beautiful world around her. She never tires of rejoicing in the abundant splendor of nature.

Lani wears a white dress with a silvery pink Hawaiian shell in the front, pink crocheted panties and matching shoes adorned with crystals. The pink Pupu (shell) in her hair represents spiritual strength, unity and love.
She is holding an shell with a candle in her hands. The angel wings are crafted out of real white feathers.

Lani is about 3.5” tall, fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Lani has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.
Lani 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.

Lani’s Mana (spiritual energy) radiates heavenly unconditional Aloha.

Pono, the Hawaiian Lifestyle of Balance and Integrity

Ua mau ke ea o ka`aina i ka pono. 
The life of the land is preserved in righteousness.

The Hawaiian lifestyle of Pono expresses balance and integrity with the Mana (spiritual energy) of life. Pono fully embraces contentment, happiness, optimism and hope. It affirms attitudes of positivity and harmony. Pono is a state of being and a way of living. Hawaiian Pono unites body, mind and spirit in balance and harmony. It reflects on the interconnectedness of people, nature and spirit. Pono teaches to honor the spirit and to assist others in restoring a life of Pono.
Pono is the motto of Hawaii.

Pono means all thoughts, words and deeds are in complete harmony with divine energy, including our guardianship of the earth. Hawaiian people believe that we are the caretakers of the land during our lifetime. The quality of our guardianship of the land determines its condition. We pass our knowledge on to succeeding generations, so that they too can enjoy and take care of the abundant resources that are gifted to us in our lifetime.

Pono is rightness and balance.

Pono means making a conscious decision to do the right thing in every aspect of life. It means having a proper respectful relationship with. Every action in life should reflect Pono.

Imagine the wonderful world we would live in, if we all were Pono spiritual beings, Pono guardians of the earth, Pono family, Pono friends, etc.. Isn't Pono a concept worth striving for?

Reflections on a life of Pono inspired the creation of the Magical Hawaiian Menehunes, Pono and Puli.
