Ghandi once said - “If you want to change the world, start with you...” But how does that even work? Do we have that much power? Apparently yes…
The story of miraculous healing I’m about to relate seems so unbelievable that you might be tempted to rapidly move on, yet the seemingly incredible healing of the criminal insane and the restoration of a functional team of caring professionals over the course of 4 years is a matter of historical fact and has important implications not just for personal development but for organisational development too in an increasingly unpredictable and threatening world.
Between 1984 and 1987, a certain psychologist Dr Ihaleakala Hew Len cured every patient in the criminally insane ward of a Hawaii State hospital without ever ‘treating’ anyone. As Dr Len worked in his hospital office looking through the contents of each of the patients’ files, instead of trying to impose his therapies on others, he would focus on his own personal development. Over the course of four years, miraculous things happened – the patients got better, stopped needing medication, started calming down, staff relationships improved, they stopped calling in sick and quitting their jobs. How did Dr Len do this? By using the ancient practice of ‘Hooponopono’ A simple mantra focused on self-forgiveness, individual responsibility and acceptance of what is.
The US author Joe Vitale heard about the incredible happenings in Hawaii, met with Dr Len and eventually in 2009 they published a book called ‘Zero Limits.’
The healing power of self -forgiveness and acceptance of what is, is a constant in the very well evidenced The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT Tapping) – the crucial affirmation “I deeply and completely accept love and forgive myself” is repeated before any ‘work’ is done. This powerful tool of subtlety and elegance draws on the incredibly simple ancient wisdom of the ‘Hooponopono’ and when linked to the system of meridian energy pathways, the results are very powerful, durable and above all safe.
EFT Tapping, which blends NLP, neurobiology with this ancient wisdom is increasingly known for its rapid and durable results. Over 150 studies have found this to be an overwhelmingly safe effective therapy, because it respects the integrity of the client. You can read more here.
You are more powerful than you might think. Why not give one or both of these techniques a go? And see for yourself.
“The only purpose of your life and mine is the restoration of our identity – our Mind – back to its original state of void and zero, of purity of heart, and of ‘blank’ through non-stop cleaning” Dr Hew Len
