I saw Joe Vitale in The Secret and read a few of his books about the law of attraction, but it wasn’t until he got into Ho’oponopono with Hawaiian psychologist Ihaleakala Hew Len, Ph.D. that I became interested in his work, because it’s based on a premise I understand — healing yourself changes your experience! Here’s an article he invited me to share.
A “Crazy” New Way to Increase Sales — from Zero
by Dr. Joe Vitale
In my new book, “Zero Limits,” I talk about the unusual therapist who helped heal an entire hospital ward of mentally ill criminals –without seeing any of them.
I’ve since learned his method for healing, which involves “cleaning” yourself of all negativity in order to see change in others.
It seems bizarre, but when you take care of your own issues, they disappear in other people.
The whole idea is to love the problems away.
You do it by saying “I love you,” and a few other statements, non-stop. I’ve been doing it for two years now and my life is astonishing. I live in an almost moment-by-moment state of bliss.
Once I learned this method, I started to use it on other things besides illness. Since I’m a practical metaphysician and an entrepreneur, I wanted to see if this wild method would work on sales and other bottom line results.
Whenever I would write an article – much like this one — I would send love into it.
Whenever I would write another book – like my new one, “Zero Limits” — I would keep saying “I love you” in my mind.
What I noticed is my emails and articles would get read and distributed to *millions* of people.
And my book, “Zero Limits,” became an Amazon bestseller — six months *before* it was published.
But I didn’t stop there in my testing.
Because I want to be sure this method works for others and not just me, I taught it to my close friends.
Bill Hibbler, coauthor with me of the book “Meet and Grow Rich,” was skeptical. But he borrowed a pre-publication copy of my book, “Zero Limits,” read it, and started loving his products and his list of subscribers. Here’swhat he said:
“Sales for Jan 1-4 were 41.39% higher than Dec 1-4. During the four day period in January, I didn’t mail my list or launch any new promotion during that time. All I did was clean while reading your book and throughout the day.”
Bill went on to tell me he saw sales increase from his sites — which he wasn’t promoting *at all*.
How is this possible?
How can “cleaning” yourself with a mantra like “I love you” make a difference in your sales?
It appears that there is nothing “out there.” The entire world is a projection of what you feel inside.
So, if you feel love, you will attract love. Because love contains gratitude, you attract more things to be grateful for. This is the essence of my book, “The Attractor Factor,” and of course of the movie, “The Secret.”
You get what you feel.
At heart I think you (I) just want love. Well, so does everyone else. When you say “I love you” inside yourself, you cleanse yourself and you radiate an energy that others feel.
The result: more sales.
Look at it this way:
Even if this whole method seems totally crazy to you, what harm can come from you saying “I love you” in your mind as you make calls, write emails, deliver pitches, and go about your day?
If nothing else, you’ll have better feeling days.
Try it and see. By the way, “I love you”.
Dr. Joe Vitale is author of way too many books to mention, including the bestsellers “The Attractor Factor,” “Life’s Missing Instruction Manual” and the forthcoming head spinner: “Zero Limits.” He’s also one of the stars in the hit movie “The Secret.” His main website is at http://www.MrFire.com
Also, “At Zero,” the sequel to “Zero Limits” will be out January, 2014. I’ll let you know when it is ready. You will love it.

I just finished Zero Limits and it’s a keeper, especially for the reference sections: “Appendix A, Zero Limits Basic Principles” and “Appendix B, How to Heal Yourself (or Anyone Else) and Discover Health, Wealth, and Happiness.”

I’m on target, averaging 2500 words/day.
I started Book 2 on Monday, January 16 and worked an average of 5 hours/day M, T,W. After the experience of writing Book 1, a return to workaholic behavior, I declared that I would only write if I could do it in a balanced way and joyfully. It must be fun (for many reasons I might share at some future time) or I won’t do it. SO:
Sundays and Thursdays have been designated “no writing” days. On Thursdays, after several hours of home maintenance, it’s “play day”: Trimble Hot Springs, take-out from the neighborhood Mexican restaurant, “Machos”, Cribbage and Backgammon with a new friend who comes up from New Mexico, and p.m. Netflix. On the days my new friend can’t join me, I’ll consider visiting the Senior Center with my Cribbage and Backgammon games!
And, I’m adding Ho’oponopono to the Weird Indy Project beginning now!
I’ve been using it as a mantra for my 1/2 hour walk through the ‘hood, and “cleaning” myself as I go throughout the day. I’m already noticing a difference — in other people’s driving!
Once a sore spot regarding the influx of newcomers in this little tourist town, for the past week I have to say “Wow! They actually let me in from the access road to the highway! Here, access roads are long enough to gain highway speed, and then they end abruptly. It can be dangerous when drivers on the highway don’t let the access road cars onto the highway. And, Wow! They’re not blocking the turn to the post office (that is clearly marked with a giant X on that road which means “Don’t stop here and block turns.” And I haven’t been tail-gated in days!
How do I understand this observation of better drivers?
From the same perspective as the Essenes that Greg Braden wrote about in his book, Walking Between the Worlds. I had a strong judgement about rude drivers. Strong judgements are like giant magnets that attract lots of whatever is felt strongly about. As I healed myself with Ho’oponopono, as I did “cleaning” with my mantra (the 4 statements), I no longer had an attitude about rude drivers in my town, and therefore was no longer seeing them. Whatever I see in my world is my responsibility to “clean.”
Want to try it yourself? Here’s the statements:
- “I love you.”
- “I’m sorry”
- “Please forgive me.”
- “Thank you.”
You aren’t saying those statements to a person or even to Divinity. You’re saying them to heal yourself. Period. Because what you see outside yourself is a projection of what you feel inside. There is no “out there.”
Till next time, please be kind to everyone you meet for we all have our hidden sorrows. ~Tzaddi
