Joe Vitale: Author, Mentor and Marketing Guru

Joe Vitale is one of the teachers/masters of the Law of Attraction and the movie, The Secret. He has written "too many books to mention" as it says on his book jackets. All his books are fast reads, easy to understand and chock full of good information on manifesting money. He was a marketing guru and copy writing mentor before he was a movie celebrity. Joe also has a mastermind group and does prosperity coaching.

When I first discovered Joe Vitale, I had lost my job and was trying to make a transition from full time social worker to network marketer. There was a fair amount of pressure on me to move quickly in manifesting money since my bills were based on a full time manager's salary, not on my unemployment benefits. I heard Joe Vitale say, "You can have everything you want as long as you don't need it."

Trying not to feel need when you have just lost your job is like trying to ignore the pink elephant sitting on your bed. I could not shake the feeling for long. I would use Brian Tracey and Anthony Robbins' NLP techniques to put myself in a positive frame of mind before calling or meeting with people, but like the old Readers Digest standard, "Pardon, your slip is showing", it seemed that I was wearing a sign that said, "Please feed me." I didn't then understand what Joe Vitale meant, or how the secret worked if I was supposed to write my goals, and feel feelings, without feeling any need. I tried to be the super salesperson -- out early, prepared for rejections, yet sincerely listening to people talk about their lives and their needs rather than thinking about my need for manifesting money. I only offered our product when I believed it would be a help to a prospect. Yet, in the back of my mind, there were two deadly thoughts that acted like the agent orange of sales, wiping away any chance of a "yes".

The first was the belief that "I was not a good salesperson and had never been." Can you relate to this? Were you ever a beginner in a sales position? When I was listening to someone, and empathizing, everything went smoothly. As soon as I thought about showing our brochure, something changed between us that made me a little uncomfortable.

The second deadly thought was that I did not -- with my whole being I'm talking -- I did not want to fail to make a go of this business and have to take another full time job. I wish I had heard about Joe Vitale early on, but I had to struggle for 9 months. I had studied Robert Kiyosaki's materials while I still had my job and desperately wanted to make the switch from the employee E quadrant to the B business or I investor quadrant. I now believe that it was the Law of Attraction that pushed me out the door although at the time, I didn't feel I was ready for manifesting money through a business.

You probably see the problem with my thinking, but it took me a while. It was after seeing Joe Vitale on The Secret that I began to see the problem. If I had been thinking and feeling, "Hooray! Now I can start my business!" I would have been off to the races. But the negative, "I can't afford to fail..." has the exact opposite effect and negates all the commitment and the discipline of forcing myself to get out early and to speak with everyone I met. Feeling the fear of failure rather than anticipating the joy of success has the same effect on that dream seedling as yanking it out of the earth several times a day.

And, then I saw The Secret and Joe Vitale, and added gratefulness to my morning regime. I tried to change everything to the positive point of view. I rewrote goals. I studied The Sedona Method of letting go of fear and all other negative emotions. All this helped, but fear still lurked in my nightmares.

When Joe Vitale wrote Zero Limits and emailed me that it was available, I drove straight to the bookstore, the nearest Barnes and Noble. My apologies to Joe Vitale here, because at that time, I could only buy one small cup of coffee. I sat with my coffee and Joe's book fresh from the bookshelf (I had to wait 6 weeks before I could buy my own copy,) and read the entire book slowly and carefully. I inhaled every word and chewed over every concept. I learned more about Joe Vitale and how Joe Vitale attends to coincidences and follows his instincts. I studied the various forms of Ho'oponopono and began to apply it that afternoon. This was when I felt a seismic shift in my life.

Dr. Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len Explain Ho'oponopono

Thank you to Dr. Joe Vitale and Dr. Īhaleakala Hew Len, Ph.D. . The following week fear left like the continent of Atlantis, leaving no trace. Shortly afterward, I received a phone call and a part time job offer that would be enough and still give me 22 hours each week to work on my own projects. This was the answer to a "dream", and not one of the bad ones I had been having of late.

How does it work? It's a simple practice and helps in several ways. It is first, a prayer to Divinity, to Creator, the Universe or to God, or to whomever or whatever you choose when you transmit your desires. Second, you are accepting 100% responsibility for EVERYTHING that comes or does not come into your life. Third, it makes you aware, all day long of every feeling you have about people, things and events in your life, and fourth, it helps you clear away all negativity and attachment. Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len speak about clearing and returning to port, which is our place of origin in the void when we were without [Ed: the ego of which Eckhart Tolle speaks] memory or any programmed responses from any prior life.

Dr. Hew Len, on his website, details the process of clearing the unconscious or lower brain, which is over a million times more powerful, more intrusive and faster than our conscious brains. It is now clear why all the conscious affirmations and goal setting have little effect if our histories as stored in our unconscious are pulling our lives in another direction. Dr. Hew Len also maps out for us not only our conscious and unconscious, but our higher brains which transmit our prayers to Divinity after making any needed corrections, and also receive inspiration directly from Divinity. When our unconscious brains are in control, it is difficult if not impossible to hear inspirations. Thus we have the fifth reason to do continual clearing throughout the day whenever we have a feeling, especially a critical or negative feeling.

The process is as follows, with some variations. "Divinity, I love you. Please take away any program of mine that is [causing or preventing] this circumstance, and transmute it and burn it in the light. I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. It is done." If you can send love to the victim or recipient of your judgmental feelings, it is great. This simplifies it. "I love you. I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you." And remember, since we are all part of the One, this is, in effect, the same prayer as the first.

If you have read other parts of our website or are a long time student of the Law of Attraction, you will understand the five benefits. For those who would like additional clarity, I will explain each.

The first part of the process is to address the omnipresent and omnipotent power in the Universe in a request for help. Jesus said over and over in the Gospels, that what so ever we ask of the Father will be granted. -- So it's a done deal as soon as we send the request. What is this request?

This addresses the second part of the prayer. We are accepting 100% responsibility for everything that causes us to have a feeling. If a woman cuts me off on the highway, or if a woman backs out of a parking space and hits my car, or if a cashier short changes me, or if a child I'm working with has a temper tantrum, or if a husband I know yells at his wife, it is all my responsibility. Nothing is in my life that I didn't cause. The definition of whether it is "in your life" can get a little fuzzy.

Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len give us some guidance. Dr. Hew Len "cured" all but one of the inmates of a hospital for the criminally insane using this method. He never met with them in his role as psychologist, but read their charts. When he had a feeling (in this case usually of revulsion or sadness) he would clear. (More details are in the book by Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len, Zero Limits)

The third element, being aware all day long of every feeling, has the benefit of making you mindful, not just during meditation but all day long. As we know so graphically from the movie, The Secret, one little event such as the knocked over alarm clock or the run in the last pair of panty hose, can set us up for a whole day of negativity if we don't quickly catch a hold of our emotions and clear them.

The teachers of the Law of Attraction also talk about "attachment" as being a danger to our happiness or a deterrent to the Universe who would otherwise be delighted to grant your every wish when manifesting money.

So, whether you are feeling one of the "negative" feelings or a feeling of pride, strong attachment or success, ask for help in letting these go too, which is the fourth element, clearing. This is not to say that love or joy are dangerous. There is a difference between loving a person, and feeling either a sense of having conquered or caught or of owning or controlling that person. One is a gift and the other is an ego trap -- a new program. Joy is wonderful if you are completely in the moment, but the instant you attempt to hold on to or to repeat the circumstances or connect it to the thing that might have initiated it, you are solidifying a memory with a program. Remember, memories and programs interfere with clarity which prevents us from directly communing with Divinity. Ho'oponopono will help you stay in the moment, and not only to connect to Divinity or the Universe whenever you need to, or choose it, but will enable you to "hear" the response as well, which is the fifth element.

And this brings us back to Joe Vitale and the statement that I pondered for so long -- "You can have anything you want as long as you don't need it." It is our attachment that turns a want or a desire into a need. Whenever you feel yourself attaching to the product of a successful use of the Law of Attraction, let it go; clear, clear, clear yourself of ego attachment through Ho'oponopono.

Joe Vitale's Triple A Plan for Abundance

Already wealthy:We are already wealthy. We have a set point and are keeping ourselves at this level. Gratitude is a part of overcoming set points. Joe Vitale reminds us that this opens up the energy field.

Attention to your beliefs: Thoughts lead to emotions which lead to actions and thus, results. When you hit a ceiling, question what belief it comes from. Change your beliefs and you get another reality.

Action: The Universe likes speed. Joe Vitale treats inspired ideas with respect. How many times did we have an idea and a little while later, we walk into a store and there is the product or the book? Why didn't we take action? Fear of success and fear of failure.
