HO'OPONOPONO by Joe Vitale

"Two years ago, I heard about a therapist in Hawaii who cured a
complete ward of criminally insane patients--without ever seeing any
of them. The psychologist would study an inmate's chart and then
look within himself to see how he created that person's illness. As
he improved himself, the patient improved.

"When I first heard this story, I thought it was an urban legend.
How could anyone heal anyone else by healing himself? How could even
the best self-improvement master cure the criminally insane? It
didn't make any sense. It wasn't logical, so I dismissed the story.

"However, I heard it again a year later. I heard that the therapist
had used a Hawaiian healing process called ho 'oponopono. I had
never heard of it, yet I couldn't let it leave my mind. If the story
was at all true, I had to know more. I had always understood "total
responsibility" to mean that I am responsible for what I think and
do. Beyond that, it's out of my hands. I think that most people
think of total responsibility that way. We're responsible for what
we do, not what anyone else does--but that's wrong.

"The Hawaiian therapist who healed those mentally ill people would
teach me an advanced new perspective about total responsibility. His
name is Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len. We probably spent an hour talking on
our first phone call. I asked him to tell me the complete story of
his work as a therapist.

He explained that he worked at Hawaii State Hospital for four years.
That ward where they kept the criminally insane was dangerous.
Psychologists quit on a monthly basis. The staff called in sick a
lot or simply quit. People would walk through that ward with their
backs against the wall, afraid of being attacked bypatients. It was
not a pleasant place to live, work, or visit.

"Dr. Len told me that he never saw patients. He agreed to have an
office and to review their files. While he looked at those files, he
would work on himself. As he worked on himself, patients began to

"'After a few months, patients that had to be shackled were being
allowed to walk freely,' he told me. 'Others who had to be heavily
medicated were getting off their medications. And those who had no
chance of ever being released were being freed.' I was in awe.'Not
only that,' he went on, 'but the staff began to enjoy coming to

Absenteeism and turnover disappeared. We ended up with more staff
than we needed because patients were being released, and all the
staff was showing up to work. Today, that ward is closed.'

"This is where I had to ask the million dollar question: 'What were
you doing within yourself that caused those people to change?'

"'I was simply healing the part of me that created them,' he said. I
didn't understand. Dr. Len explained that total responsibility for
your life means that everything in your life- simply because it is
in your life--is your responsibility. In a literal sense the entire
world is your creation.

"Whew. This is tough to swallow. Being responsible for what I say or
do is one thing. Being responsible for what everyone in my life says
or does is quite another. Yet, the truth is this: if you take
complete responsibility for your life, then everything you see,
hear, taste, touch, or in any way experience is your responsibility
because it is in your life. This means that terrorist activity, the
president, the economy or anything you experience and don't like--is
up for you to heal. They don't exist, in a manner of speaking,
except as projections from inside you. The problem isn't with them,
it's with you, and to change them, you have to change you.

"I know this is tough to grasp, let alone accept or actually live.
Blame is far easier than total responsibility, but as I spoke with
Dr. Len, I began to realize that healing for him and in ho
'oponopono means loving yourself.

"If you want to improve your life, you have to heal your life. If
you want to cure anyone, even a mentally ill criminal you do it by
healing you.

"I asked Dr. Len how he went about healing himself. What was he
doing, exactly, when he looked at those patients' files?

"'I just kept saying, 'I'm sorry' and 'I love you' over and over
again,' he explained.

"That's it?

"That's it.

"Turns out that loving yourself is the greatest way to improve
yourself, and as you improve yourself, you improve your world.

"Let me give you a quick example of how this works: one day, someone
sent me an email that upset me. In the past I would have handled it
by working on my emotional hot buttons or by trying to reason with
the person who sent the nasty message.

"This time, I decided to try Dr. Len's method. I kept silently
saying, 'I'm sorry' and 'I love you,' I didn't say it to anyone in
particular. I was simply evoking the spirit of love to heal within
me what was creating the outer circumstance.

"Within an hour I got an e-mail from the same person. He apologized
for his previous message. Keep in mind that I didn't take any
outward action to get that apology. I didn't even write him back.
Yet, by saying 'I love you,' I somehow healed within me what was
creating him.

"I later attended a ho 'oponopono workshop run by Dr. Len. He's now
70 years old, considered a grandfatherly shaman, and is somewhat

He praised my book, The Attractor Factor. He told me that as I
improve myself, my book's vibration will raise, and everyone will
feel it when they read it. In short, as I improve, my readers will

"'What about the books that are already sold and out there?' I

"'They aren't out there,' he explained, once again blowing my mind
with his mystic wisdom. 'They are still in you.' In short, there is
no out there. It would take a whole book to explain this advanced
technique with the depth it deserves.

"Suffice It to say that whenever you want to improve anything in
your life, there's only one place to look: inside you. When you
look, do it with love."
