“The Awakening Course,” by Joe Vitale, has many great points and thoughts to ponder. MANY. But if it only had this one thought it would still be worth it!
Joe met a healer, Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, who taught him a technique to use called Self I-dentity Ho’oponopono. The doctor used the technique to cure every mental patient at the hospital. Joe explains how we can use this technique to clean our minds of bad thoughts.
See side note “Another’s desire to change, must come from them, but… (SSN)” for more info.
In a nutshell (seriously, read the book, because there is NO WAY this is going to do it justice, but anyway…):
When you think a thought you know is bad, repeat the phrase:
I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you
This is you talking to the universe, saying:
I’m sorry – You’re not sure where you got this thought from (but you are having it and you take responsibility).
Please forgive me – Having accepted responsibility, you are asking for forgiveness.
Thank you – You are thanking the Universe for taking care of this and for helping you get rid of this thought.
I love you – “He’s saying it to the Divine… and by doing so, he’s going into a state of surrender.”
When I have recurring negative thoughts, I use this technique (often coupled with the rubber band flick talked about in my book), and I have seen great results from it. If nothing else, it takes my mind off the negative thoughts. I say it over and over and over again, until the thought is not dominating me, and then I say, “Thank you, I love you, thank you, I love you,” until I am “vibing” on that.
I have not done it justice; just get the book. Let me correct that negative statement. I hope I just gave you a taste of this great thought – enough to inspire you to read more. 😉
Takeaway: Get the book, “The Awakening Course,” by Joe Vitale, and learn about the clearing statement, “I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you.”
(Joe mentions the book “Zero Limits” has more info on this, but I have not read it yet. Can’t wait!)
