Iyanla Vanzant Helps a Woman Heal After a Lifetime of Hurt

Aired on 08/10/1999 | CC tv-pg
Spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant always had a way of making audience members pop right out of their seats when she appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Such was the case in one particular episode in 1999. Audience member Demona stood up to say that she understood Iyanla's advice, but she confessed that she couldn't seem to put it into practice. She told Iyanla that she was hurt—hurt that no one made time for her, hurt that no one cared, hurt that she felt alone. Watch as Iyanla guides Demona to a new way of thinking and explains how her thoughts were poisoning her relationships.
