Joe Vitale has written an awful lot of books, and had several on the best seller lists, for someone who is not a very good writer.
He’s one of the folk quoted extensively in The Secret, and is a leader in the self-empowerment, bringing the good into your own life by various spiritual techniques movement. This book’s subtitle is The Secret Hawaiian System for Wealth, Health, Peace and More, and it’s co-written with Ihaleakala Hew Len, Ph. D. Dr. Hew Len teaches the ancient Hawaiian system of Ho’oponopono.
None of which you really need to know to use the very simple system, which basically is an affirmation / mantra. As I point out to folk, affirmations are not true the first time you say them. By the 13,000th or 14,000th time, they usually are true. And you don’t really have to believe anything. Just say the mantra, and keep saying it. Applying logic to this stuff doesn’t help it work or not work. So it’s best not to bother.
The system is to say: I love you, I am sorry, please forgive me, thank you. The I love you can come at the beginning or the end. I sometimes say it at the beginning and at the end. You can be thinking about a particular situation or person – or not.
And there are hints throughout the book that you’ll learn a lot more if you attend one of the seminars that build on this teaching – a little crass, I think. But I already know Joe’s books are not well written, and to me many pages seem to be filler – letters that don’t matter, extensive quotes from workshops, re-worded repetitions of material already presented.
But, as I said at the beginning, it doesn’t matter. If you want change in your life, use this system. Or any other that catches your attention. Don’t think about it and try to figure it out. Just do it, don’t stop, your life will change. The system doesn’t really have to make sense to make things happen.
