You Can Heal Your Life: 10 Affirmations by Louise Hay
Louise Hay is the author of the book “You Can Heal Your Life” and the founder of Hay House.
Louise believes that every disease and illness have metaphysical causes. It is through changing one’s thoughts by accepting and embracing oneself lovingly and unconditionally can the healing occur.
Louise had a troubled childhood. Not only was she born in a dysfunctional family with an abusive father, she was raped by her neighbour who was an old wino.
Throughout her growing years, Louise was grappling with feelings of unworthiness and resentment. As a result of lack of self-love and self-acceptance, she had a tendency of attracting men who mistreated her and physically assaulted her. She went through painful divorces. All these negative emotions finally consumed her and she was diagnosed with vaginal cancer.
Refusing to succumb to life’s curve ball, she put her teachings to practice. She chose not to undergo an operation to remove the cancerous growth. Instead, she resorted to alternative healing therapies that comprised of foot reflexology, food therapy, colon therapy, and lots of self-affirmations. Eventually, Louise healed her cancer without operation within 6 months. Louise has successfully healed her past trauma and resentment through her belief and practice of positive affirmations.
