Now listen up, ya’ll, because this is seriously interesting and unbelievable.

I made a new friend recently: a very funny, honest, tell-it-like-it-is kind of guy, who I’ll be interviewing later this week. But more about him later.

First let me tell you this incredible story that he passed on to me.

About 6 years ago, my friend heard a story about a mental hospital in Hawaii. This was a locked-down hospital for the criminally insane: dangerous people who needed constant supervision. A new psychiatrist came to this hospital and agreed to look over the patients’ medical charts and see what he could do to help them, without actually seeing them one-on-one at all.

What I’m going to tell you now may sound unbelievable and ridiculous, but my friend Joe has verified that it is real. After some months, every one of the patients in that mental hospital was healed. By now, they have all fully rehabilitated and have been discharged. This happened without medication, without therapy.

The psychiatrist in question was a Hawaiian man trained in the ancient Hawaiian art of Ho’oponopono. Ho’o what? Ho’oponopono. It means “to make right,” to see everything around you, whether it is directly a part of your life or not, as your responsibility. You must have the attitude that, “If I experience it, then I created it, and if I created it, I can dissolve it.”

Ho’oponopono involves four distinct and beautiful sentences:

“I love you.”

“I’m sorry”

“Please forgive me”

“Thank you.”

The friend that I was telling you about is Joe Vitale. You may have seen him in the movie “The Secret.” He’s a well-know advocate of the “Law of Attraction” (which, as you know, I am not a huge fan of) and how to make loads of money (which I feel, I guess, kind of ambivalent about). Besides those things, Joe also has a heart of gold. He’s one of the most unapologetically authentic people we know. He tells it like it is, every time. Joe sought out that Hawaiian healer (Ihaleakala Hew Len, PhD) and interviewed him extensively. Together, they wrote a book about Ho’oponopono called Zero Limits, which came out a few years ago.

I asked Joe to join me this week on the free Thursday night tele-seminar to talk about Ho’oponopono, how he has integrated it into his own life, and how you can do the same. Please join me on Thursday, August 12th, at 6pm PST for what I’m sure will be an extremely interesting dialog. If you miss the live call, you can use the same link for the replay.
