... this has been a growing threat since Joe Vitale got that urban legend started.

So, it's very important to understand the way the unihipili (your unconscious mind) works.

The unipilili takes everything it hears personally and literally.

... and repetition builds powerful associations.

So using the "four phrases" popularized recently, where the poor followers are constantly saying "I'm sorry."

... well, you're unihipili gets what that can really mean.

You see ...

... when you keep repeating "I'm sorry" ... your unconscious mind understands the complete and literal meaning of the word.

And THAT depends on everything the word means ... and, more importantly, it depends on how your unconscious mind ... unihipili ... understands the word.

You're very intelligent ... but remember your unihipili is child-like, so when you say "I am sorry" your inner child understands the literal meaning of what you're saying.

... even if you consciously have a different frame-work in mind.

So by saying "I am sorry," your unconscious mind processes that.

... and it processes what you say the way the average 6-year-old would.

Unihipili really loves serving, and it follows the instructions you're giving.

So, think about it ...

... when you say "I am sorry," your eager little unihipili hears:

  • "I'm feeling sorrow."

  • "I'm feeling regret."

  • "I'm mournful."

  • "I'm sad."

  • "I'm inspiring sorrow, pity, scorn, or ridicule."

  • "I'm pitiful."
... and responds accordingly ... using all your memories, all your experiences, and everything you're learned about the word "sorry."

And, frankly ... from what I've seen ... that is exactly what the purveyors of that watered-down, revisionist, "Zero Limits" Ho'oponopono want you to believe.

I don't.

... I want you to know just how valuable you are!

So if you like something about the "four phrases" you might want to pick something better ... a word that empowers you instead.

What programming do you WANT your unconscious mind getting?

You choose.

Instead of I'm sorry...would you suggest: I apologize?

Rev. James Vinson Wingo, DD said...

Yes. By using "I apologize" you are maintaining integrity.

There is plenty of discussion on this topic in the message archives at

Hi Vince,

I am glad I found your site and the truth :)

I was looking at Zero Limits but there was just something that seemed off... I totally agree with the causative approach and not focusing on negative concepts. I know for sure that you get what you focus your attention on.

I look forward to reading and studying more about your teachings.

I started repeating the phrases and things do seem to be shifting, but I've been very very emotional the past couple of days - crying and crying - also feeling anger, depressed. it's a bit scary, but i thought it might be because of the process? Also regarding the concept of everything being inside of us - I think it's a bit of a stretch - as if everything is happening in my head and only as 'real' as i make it. I understand the subjective aspect of this process, but still appreciate that there is an objective reality - the world we all live in together. right? Zero limits makes everything out to be happening "in our minds"...Your comments are appreciated. Thankyou! (my favorite part of hooponopono) Deborah
