In the book I coauthored with Dr. Hew Len (pictured below with me), Zero Limits, we explain that your unconscious mind is a database that needs to be cleaned of programming. It’s what causing you to attract what you have in your life. We also say that Ho’oponopono, the Hawaiian healing method described in the book, is a great way to do that cleaning.

Recently I’ve been reading books in the filed of neuropsychology and modern brain science. They prove that our unconscious mind is running the show. The conscious mind, the part you think is the driver in the game of life, is oblivious to all that is happening. In many ways, due to the programming in our unconscious, we’re robots. We rationalize our decisions and behavior, but where they originated was below conscious awareness.

For example, in hypnosis a person can be given the command to open a window. Later, after they’re out of the trance state and given the signal to trigger the command, they’ll get up and open a window. When you ask them why they opened the window, they”ll rationalize the action with statements such as, “I needed some air” or “I smelled smoke.” They will never explain that the behavior stemmed from a command in their unconscious.

Ken Eisold’s book, What You Don’t Know You Know, is all about our hidden motives in life, business and everything else. Those hidden motives are hidden from even us. They are in our unconscious. We, as conscious beings, simply act on what the unconscious prompts us to do.

Shankar Vedantam’s book, The Hidden Brain, explains how our unconscious minds elect presidents, control markets, wage wars, and save our lives. Again, it proves that the motor driving us through life is in the unconscious, not conscious, mind.

Since we are so unconsciously driven, does that mean we aren’t really responsible for what we say or do?

According to Vedantam, “We have responsibility for not only our conscious minds, but our unconscious minds as well.”

Back to Zero Limits. In our book, Dr. Hew Len and I explain that you are 100% responsible for your life. No if, ands or buts. No loopholes. No exceptions. It doesn’t matter where you think your motivation came from — unconscious or conscious — if it’s in your life, you are responsible for it. Note that you aren’t to blame, but you are responsible.

Given that our unconscious is hidden, powerful, deep and running the show, how in the world do we clean it up so we stop attracting messes?

Psychotherapy, popularized by Freud, is one way. But according to Dr. Eisold, “Today, there are over four hundred distinct psychotherapies.”

Four hundred!?

According to Vedantam, “Making the unconscious conscious is difficult because the central obstacle lies within ourselves.”

Well, what are we to do?

How are we going to clear the unconscious?

Here are some suggestions:

1. Miracles Coaching. When you have a skilled coach listen to your story and repeat it back to you, focusing on what you may not be hearing, you have the opportunity to make the unconscious conscious. Nothing works faster in getting results than having a Miracles Coach and taking right action.

2. The Missing Secret. This bestselling audio CD program offers step-by-step help in getting clear. There are several methods taught, and you can do them as you relax and listen.

3. Finally, in Zero Limits, we explain that the way out is the way in. The best clearing method I know is the one explained in the book: just silently in your mind say non-stop, “I Love You, Please forgive me, Thank you, and I’m sorry.” And if you want the shortest mantra of all, just say “I love you.”

“I love you” is the fast-track to Zero – that ultimate state of purity. But Zero is contaminated with programming. To get back to Zero, we need to get clear.

I’ll continue to report on other ways to clean the unconscious mind of its negative data, but for now, what could be easier than saying “I love you”?

Ao Akua,


mrfire crown chakra PS – Pat O’Bryan and I created a new clearing audio you will enjoy. It combines an Alien Guitar, Sanskrit chanting, and binaural beats to create a deep and powerful cleansing sweep of your unconscious. It’s a stick of dynamite to your brain, designed to chase down and chase out all the negative programming hiding in your mind. Get details by clicking right here.

PPS – Picture above shows my crown chakra opening up. Or maybe a candle burning right behind my head. I’m not sure.

    Hey Joe,

    it’s always the simple things that really work. The “I am sorry – it’s allright – I love you” technique has been very helpful to me in the past!

    Many greetings and blessings to you and yours


  2. Great post, Joe, and your new product sounds really interesting!

    When will we see the Alien Guitar? ;-D

    Best regards,
    Claus D Jensen

    Hi Joe, I like your stuff. You might already know that Rev. Ike has been teaching for years about the power of our mind to attract both positive and negative conditions to us depending on on our subconscious (and conscious) thoughts, feelings and beliefs. He taught this secret long before “the Secret” (and of course he learned from teachers who came before him) You might find his short YouTube video “How to use the Law of I AM” interesting. It will certainly change any pre-conceived ideas you might have about Rev. Ike. Take a look

    Thanks Joe for bringing all of this wonderful info on Zero Limits. I’ve had a lot of WOW moments since using it. Your latest Clearing Audio with Pat is beautiful. I was afraid that it might be loud and hard to listen to becaue your words to describe it. The music is soft and your voice has a different tone to it. I love to listen to it! Great product.

    Thanks for this info, Dr. Joe. I’ll always be forever grateful for the book Zero Limits. It is one of the greatest and most helpful books we have ever read. I do Ho’oponopono most of the time especially when my resolve to be good is being challenged, ( or when I find myself giving judgment, or when I just want to clear whatever negative unconscious beliefs I may have that prevent me from achieving my desired results.

    Thank you so much. We love you!

    I love your book Zero Limits!!!!! Totally, as I use it all the time, and I love it, it always works, for sure, without a doubt. So thanks Joe, for bringing this information to us. I love you :-)))

    Hi Joe

    The other day I listened to you on a recorded teleseminar. It is one of several that I have. It had been on my MP3 player for months and I had never heard it before. I played it ‘by accident’.

    One short section on in it exploded in my head. Some limiting beliefs I had been holding suddenly became blindingly clear to me.

    There is an old saying that when the student is ready, the teacher appears. I think it is more a case of the message appearing.

    I believe that you have to make your own journey. Expose yourself daily to books, audios, videos and occasionally, you will hear the right message at the right time.

    Gradually, you put it all together in a way that works for you.

    Thank You for being a piece of the puzzle.

    It is refreshing to hear, after all that you research and do, that you still think Zero Limits (Ho’oponopono) is the bees knees of clearing techniques. It confirms what my husband and I are experiencing.

    Your ‘Unusual Therapist’ article introduced me to it in 2006 and I will always now remember Christmas 2009 as when we watched Zero Limits 3 (then quickly, Zero 2 and Zero 1 and everything on the web!) and my husband and I cleared a rather bad psychic and astral attack we were dealing with for several years. Going to Zero did the trick. We are free now and things are getting better all the time and my husband is now talking to (and hearing) buildings and other things. LOL

    I am now listening to Zero Limits Audiobook and I highly recommend this to everyone who has read Zero Limits–it gives a whole new dimension and new understandings to hear Joe and Ihaleakala read their parts.

    Thank you very much.

    Just read Zero limits. I don’t know how I came across it or why I even ordered it!!
    It’s all very new and quite strange to me, but also makes perfect sense.
    Thanks to yourself and Dr Hew Len, I think I maybe starting to wake up.
    I love you!!

    So we’re constantly told to be more conscious yet our subconscious is running the show? Or is it be more conscious in order to reprogram our subconscious for success so we can then run on auto-pilot?

    I know for a fact I can attract many things on a conscious level. We only attract things subconsciously when we’re not paying attention as in when we’re not fully conscious.
