MANY YEARS AGO, I heard about a therapist in 
Hawaii who helped cure 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

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 any-
one else does. The Hawaiian therapist who 
healed those mentally ill people would teach me
an advanced new perspective about total 

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
by patients. It was not a pleasant place to live, 
work, or visit. 

Dr. Hew 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, 133 


he would work on himself. As he worked on 
himself, patients began to heal. 

"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 work. 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. Hew Len explained that total responsibility for
your life means that everything in your life - 
simply because it is in your life - is your responsi-
bility. In a literal sense the entire world is your 

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, and your own financial situation -
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. Hew 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. 

This also goes for your money situation. If you 
want to clear your beliefs about money and begin
to attract money now, you have to address the 
issue within yourself. 

I asked Dr. Hew Len how he went about healing 
himself. What 


A Divine Way to Clear Limiting Beliefs About Money 

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
you improve yourself, and as you improve 
yourself, your 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. Hew 
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 

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. Hew Len. He's now 70 years old, considered 
a grandfatherly shaman, and is somewhat 
reclusive. 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 improve. 

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

"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
(which is why Dr. Hew Len and I wrote the 
book Zero Limits ). 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." 


If you want to be wealthier, healthier and happier,
you must continue to learn and grow. Here are 
many great books (and a few audio recordings) to
