John Demartini


John Demartini, an American human behavior specialist, educator and internationally published author, is one of the law of attraction teachers featured in The Secret, a documentary made in 2006 about the power of manifesting.


John Demartini was born on November 25, 1954 in Houston, Texas. His childhood and teen age were remarkably challenging:  he wore hand and leg braces to correct a birth defect, at school he had difficulty reading, writing and speaking and his first grade teacher told his parents that he would never be able to communicate, and not to expect that he’d go very far in life. He left school at the age of 14 and went to Hawaii, where he had a near death experience when he was 17.

Then he met  a 93 year old man called Paul Bragg. Bragg’s yoga course altered the life of this 17 year old high school dropout who couldn’t read or write. He inspired him to breakthrough his perceived limitations: Demartini broke through his dyslexia and mastered reading and writing, then entered the University of Houston and went on to study Chiropractic at the Texas Chiropractic College where he graduated in 1982.

Young John decided to dedicate his life to the understanding of universal laws as they relate to maximizing human awareness and potential, and to help others get the same insights that he got from Paul Bragg.

He founded the Demartini Institute in 1982, dedicated to exploring and expanding human awareness and potential. He trademarked the Demartini Method and the Demartini Value Determination Process. In 2006 the Institute expanded into Africa, where Dr. Demartini has worked in partnership with educational organizations in an effort to empower and inspire young adults from disadvantaged backgrounds.

John Demartini is the author of several internationally published titles, and has appeared in several movies and documentaries: The Secret, The Compass, The Secret of the Law of Attraction 2: The Infinite Wisdom of Love, Oh My God and The Power of Mentorship.

According to his official website, today Dr. Demartini travels 360 days a year to countries all over the globe,  sharing his research and findings in all markets and sectors.

He was married twice, and he has two children.

Teachings and Philosophy: The Demartini Method

The Demartini Method® is a scientific process used professionally by many psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, educators, consultants and health professionals. Its applications include reducing stress, resolving conflict and creating new perspectives and paradigms for life. It’s often described as “a masterpiece of human psychology”.

According to the official website of Demartini Method, “the Demartini Method is an algorithm. An algorithm is a systematic procedure that produces – in a finite number of steps – the answer to a question or the solution of a problem. It involves the art of reckoning or the art of calculating until certain. For questions or problems with only a finite set of cases or values an algorithm always exists; it consists of a table of values of the answers.”

John Demartini puts the accent on empowering each of the seven areas of our life: spiritual, mental, vocational, financial, familial, social and physical. This is done by understanding and appreciating your own hierarchy of values, because where you act in accordance with your higher values there will be order and discipline, while when you’re dealing with the values that are lowest on your hierarchy list, there will be disorder and chaos, leaving you weak and powerless.

Demartini also teaches that no values are good or bad per se, but because of our value filters we experience one-sided perceptions of gain and loss, reward or risk, and therefore become elated or depressed, infatuated or resentful, happy or sad.


John Demartini is the author of over 40 books, published in 14 different languages; he has produced over 50 CDs and DVDs covering subjects such as personal development, relationships, wealth, education, chiropractic and business, and created over 72 different courses. His most popular books are:

People treat you exactly the way you unconsciously treat yourself. Their outer mannerism towards you reflect your inner mannerism, so one of the most powerful ways to transform your life is to become consciously aware of your beliefs and feelings about yourself.

You are never given a problem you cannot solve: Every problem is an opportunity to learn and to love.

When your financial purpose and dreams are focused on more than your immediate material needs, when they encompass the whole globe and all of humanity, a magical financial magnetism begins to emerge. Without a great purpose and vision, great events, accomplishments, and financial resources are unlikely to arise.

When the voice and the vision on the inside is more profound, and more clear and loud than all opinions on the outside, you’ve begun to master your life.
