The Updated Ho’oponopono and Dr. Joe Vitale’s Zero Limits

The updated form of Ho’oponopono also known as the “Self I-Dentity through Ho’oponopono “(SITH) is a very amazing kind of spiritual healing technique based on which Dr. Joe Vitale wrote his very famous book “zero limits”, following which he has then produced numerous programs to teach people about this method which includes one latest program that I found last year called “The Ho’oponoopono Certification Course” where he provides online lessons as well as certification so that people can professionally use this method to help others.

If you are completely new to this process then it may sound very strange to you because of its simplicity and also unbelievable due to the stories associated with it.

See, back in the year 2006, Joe Vitale came across a mind-blowing story about a person named Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len who healed a whole ward of mental patients using this ancient Hawaiian method without even seeing them!

That’s crazy, right? And it was a ward full of patients who were very dangerous, the staff count reduced due to this, but this psychologist changed all of their behaviors with a simple technique, how can that be possible? Well, I really don’t know but Joe decided to investigate more on this matter and that’s how this technique became so popular.

Is This Really the Best Method Ever?

Well, according to Joe, all the methods that are known to people who do personal development activities like hypnosis, EFT, visualizations, affirmations etc. don’t always work because they have some kind of ego component to it.

This means that you have a sense of control when you perform these methods but what works best is when you give up the control to the higher power and allow the universe to do the work for you.

Dr. Vitale calls it the “state zero”.

That’s a three staged evolution as he puts it and I have also known it from various other sources that first a person moves from the victim mindset to the creator mindset and there is one more level where they become the servant to the divine, their needs gets fulfilled even before the desire is born!

Let me put this into simple words, see, our life and everything about it depends on our thoughts, beliefs, and memories. Our subconscious mind holds a certain set of belief systems that creates the reality we now experience and that’s why methods like energy clearing help you to release the energy patterns that were blocking your success in any particular area of your life.

Ho’oponopono process does the same thing, it keeps on cleansing your subconscious so that you can view the world or any specific part of your life on which you have worked using this technique through a “neutral point” so that you can see the “actual truth” by breaking the walls created by your own mind and then only you will be able to take the best decisions for your life.

Taking Complete Responsibility of Your Life

If you have not read the book or don’t have a proper knowledge about this method, I can bet that you have no idea about what is about to come just by reading the title.

You might have thought “I know I have to take the responsibility of my life and stop blaming others for it”, yeah that’s true and you should do that in order to not be a victim, however, when you are about to become a practitioner of Ho’oponopono, this has a different meaning.

This may sound weird and hard to believe, but if you want to have success with this process then you must understand this particular thing in detail and then accept it – You are responsible for everything that happens in the world you live in.

Yes, that’s what it means, everything in the world is a part of you and if it is in your life then you are responsible for it. So using this process you not only heal yourself but you also heal the world.

Believe it or not, this would imply that even an accident that you might have seen on any particular day had something to do with you! And so it literally does mean “everything”!

If you found that type of information hard to accept then let me tell you, “zero limits” book has many things that require a very great degree of open-mindedness if you really want to benefit from this particular material.

Let me clarify this when I say “responsibility”, it does not mean that it is your fault, no!

Suppose your kid had a fight in school where they hurt some other kid, they did it but it still is your responsibility to set things right, isn’t it? Likewise, when you use this technique you will have to take full responsibility for any kind of problem in your world and you will apply the healing technique because according to this concept if it comes to your awareness, it is related to you!

Think of this as a shared computer program which runs in all our lives and by healing it; you are releasing it from everyone’s life.

Steps to Perform Updated Ho’oponopono

It is very simple, whenever you are confronted with any kind of problem, whether it is something in the outer world or in your mind, just say these four words:-

1 – I Am Sorry

2 – Please Forgive Me

Feel as if you are asking divinity to forgive yourself in whatever way you let this particular thing happen to you and you are requesting that it should be now erased and released.

Actually, the divine does not want you to apologize, you are loved unconditionally, but doing this will help you to forgive yourself and let that particular memory be erased from your system.

3 – Thank You

This is an act of unwavering faith that you have in the higher power, you here express the gratitude for being shown what was need to be fixed and also because you know divinity will do the rest of the work.

4 – I Love You

This alone is a clearing statement; by saying this alone you are clearing a memory that created the specific problem. When you use these three words in your mind, the universe can sense it and the healing is done.


Those were the three steps; you really don’t have to know the mechanism to make it work. However, when you get an inspiration to act on the problem once you have done enough cleaning, take actions!

I use this healing method a lot and have seen some unbelievable results whenever I am doing the cleaning on something continuously. Many times, it has happened that I forget about it after the initial excitement so I recommend you to set reminders about using this tool or keep exploring materials related to it frequently.

In the book, Dr. Hew Len also suggests the blue solar glass water use for the purpose of energy clearing.

Consistent use of this method won’t only solve your problems but it can also enable you to get the glimpses of the zero state, Joe Vitale had moments of Satori by using this method.

I recommend you to read the book “zero limits” if you want to know more about this book, in the book Joe Vitale keeps saying that you need to attend the seminars if you want to learn it better, it was not possible for me to attend that, so I bought some of the seminar’s video recordings instead.

Fortunately, now they are also offering certified Ho’oponopono practitioner course which was not available at the time I was looking for the seminar videos, you can learn it better using that program and if you clear the online test then you can also use it for professional purposes.
