For 25 years Gerald Jampolsky and Diane Cirincione have been traveling the world as a husband-wife team, helping others find peace in their hearts and minds through love and forgiveness. Dr. Oz talks with Gerald and Diane about their work, which they call attitudinal healing.
As the founder of The International Center for Attitudinal Healing, Gerald says he has helped people with a variety of illnesses and issues with support services and counseling. "Attitudial healing is a support to what people believe, giving them the better ability to do what they do even better," Diane says. "So, a lot of physicians, a lot of nurses [and] people in healthcare … use this work to do what they do even better."
Diane says that by helping people change their attitude about their situation and outlook on life, they can help heal themselves from illnesses, stress, and the fear of love and intimacy. "It is not people or events or experiences that happened in the past that are causing us distress right now—it is actually our thoughts and attitudes and judgments about those things that are causing us stress," Diane says.
By changing the way you see and speak to other people, Diane says you can begin finding happiness you never knew existed. Here are some words that Diane says you should try to remove from your vocabulary so that you can start improving your attitude:
Should've, would've, could've
Gerald says that your attitude is one of the most important things in your life because it can determine your happiness. "We don't have to give our power to other people to be happy," he says. "Our peace of mind and our happiness is not dependent on external things, but it is dependent on how we look inside and the thoughts we put in our mind."
