Dr. Joe Vitale burst onto the scene in a big way when he was one of the principal speakers in the movie The Secret. He’s penned close to 80 books and touched millions of lives in-person and digitally.
There is a lot to be taken from his life’s work, particularly in this time of widespread panic and uncertainty.
Read below to learn more about Dr. Joe Vitale, his work as a spiritual leader and his take on the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Joe Vitale and How Fear Kills Dreams and Progress
Most people name big dreams that they have, but Dr Vitale says that fear stops most people in their tracks before they even get started. Fear keeps people in their comfort zone because they’re afraid to make mistakes or being judged.
The pandemic offers an excellent opportunity to start that project that you’ve been putting off, but you first have to lean into love and let go of fear.
Joe Vitale urges people to ask themselves “Where is the proof?” whenever fearful thoughts creep in. This takes the teeth out of these thoughts and helps you to step out into the unknown with grace.
The Law of Attraction is Alive and Well
The Secret and other books and documentaries have touched heavily on the Law of Attraction. Joe Vitale says that while this Law is still alive and well, he wishes that the movie had touched more heavily on the key ingredient that makes it all go — action.
When you put action behind your thought and intention, you make it real and will begin furiously attracting the many things you desire — even while social distancing due to the coronavirus.
Use this time as a way to attract more to you by doing more.
Using an Ancient Hawaiian Practice to Thrive
Perhaps the work that Joe Vitale is most known for is his practice of the ancient Hawaiian spiritual practice called ho’oponopono. The intention of this practice is to override your thinking mind so that you can live from a place of openness and full presence.
That way, you can show up in your life in a way that lets you thrive and express yourself. While this sounds mind-blowing, the practice itself is pretty straightforward and simple.
Throughout your waking life, think the thoughts “I love you, I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you”. This creates a non-stop thought loop that gives your brain a message to think, rather than allowing yourself to get carried away by involuntary negative thoughts.
Showing yourself compassion opens you up so that you aren’t paralysed by fear and insecurity. This “cleaning” process can be done at every moment in your waking life so that you are your naturally relaxed self.
