Jim Holzknecht: What tips, tools, or techniques to you recommend for people to manifest or create what they want in their lives?

Joe Vitale

Okay, so how do you get out of your own way? You’ve realized that you have obstacles in your world that you’ve self-created. You realize that you’ve attracted everything into your own life based on your unconscious belief. You realize that you have to be in this point of power to be present and you realize that your beliefs are unconscious and you’ve got to find them and change them.

So how do you do this? How do you go about this? I’ll tell you the number one thing I do and I’m doing it all the time and I’m doing it right now. I say four phrases. Call them a mantra, call them a poem, call them a song, call it a benediction, call it whatever you want to call them.

The four phrases are:

  1. I’m sorry.
  2. Please forgive me.
  3. Thank you. And
  4. I love you.

I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. And I love you.

Let me explain why I’m saying those. And they’re going on in the background of my head right now. So I’m cleaning any interference between you and me and this moment. I’m doing it right now.

A few years ago I heard this most amazing story and it was about a mental health therapist (Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len) who worked at a mental hospital for the criminally insane in Hawaii. Now this was a despicable place. These were mentally ill criminals put away in a mental hospital for the mentally insane.

The nurses would quit on a regular basis. Staff would quit on a regular basis. The therapists would never stay longer than thirty days and were always looking for somebody new. The wards were so scary that people would walk down the halls with their backs against the walls because they were afraid that they were going to be attacked. Most of the patients had to be sedated or shackled. So you get a sense that this was “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and far worse.

So this particular therapist (Dr. Len) decided he would accept his assignment to go there, but he made one agreement with those people. He said, “I will not see any of these patients in a one-on-one, in my office, client relationship.” He said, “Instead, I want to see their files.” So he would see their files, and as he looked at their files he would do a healing technique that was self-directed.

So he was looking at a file of somebody and let’s say that they were a murderer because there were murderers and far worse there. He would look at their files and whatever he felt; whether it was rage, whether it was anger, whether it was frustration, and whether it was sadness, he felt it within himself. And he took that feeling to the divine.

And he said,

  1. “I’m sorry.
  2. Please forgive me.
  3. Thank you.
  4. And I love you.”


He’d keep repeating this. He did it within himself, like a one-on-one relationship in the moment, being present with God, with the Divine, with that Something Great that’s out there, that’s bigger than all of us. As this therapist did this, these patients started to get better. Now keep in mind, he wasn’t seeing the patients. He wasn’t prescribing the patients anything. He’s looking at their charts and he’s working on himself! As he relieves his own pain and suffering, it gets relieved in the other person. And he’s doing it by saying, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. And I love you.

I found this therapist,I have studied with this therapist, we have done workshops together. We co-authored a book called “Zero Limits”. This one tool is the most powerful, sweeping, cleansing clearing tool that I know of. A technique that you can do right now that I’m doing right now. And it’s just as easy as being aware of this moment. And in this moment you might be confused, you might be happy, you might be sad, you might be angry, frustrated, there’s all kinds of things that could be going on that take you from this moment.

Take a breath. And you say it to the Divine in your own words;

  1. I’m sorry. I have no idea, what part of me, what unconscious belief is contributing to me being away from this moment, from not being present.
  2. Please forgive me for whatever I may have done, whatever I may have said. Most of our lives are unconscious, we don’t know what we’re doing. That’s why we want to wake up and be in this moment.
  3. And he says, ‘Thank you.’ Thank you for taking care of this. Thank you for taking care of my life.” You’re going into a state of gratitude. And he ends with the three most powerful words. And I think if we just said these words we would change our lives.
  4. ‘I love you’. He’s saying, “I love you” to the Divine. And if you truly say, “I love you” to the Divine and you feel it, you can go into a state of rapture.

And that state helps melt the negative beliefs, the self-limiting beliefs, the counter-intensions; everything gets cleared. I have learned to make this my new self-talk. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. It goes on in the back of my head.

I’ve given speeches. I’ve opened for Donald Trump, I’ve been on all kind of t.v. shows, I do the same thing. Often before I go on the show in case I’m a little nervous. Sometimes when I’m on the show. Even when I’m at peace and I feel like I’m totally fine and I’m in this moment, I’m still doing it. Why? To clean and clear anything that might keep me from being present now. This is the number one technique I use today. It’s free. You’ve got it. You can take it and use it.
