“In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole and complete. I recognize my body as a good friend. Each cell in my body has Divine Intelligence. I listen to what it tells me and know that its advice is valid. I am always safe and Divinely protected and guided. I choose to be healthy and free. All is well in my world.” -Louise L Hay
Louise Hay, the founder of Hay House Publications in the self-help and positive thinking guru of our time has written many best-selling books. But her book You Can Heal Your Life, (ISBN# 978-0-937611-01-2) is an international best seller, selling more than 30 million copies. You Can Heal Your Life discusses how “dis-ease” is created by our minds unhealthy and unloving thoughts of ourselves and of others. Louise believes that by changing these unhealthy beliefs to ones of love, gratitude and forgiveness we can heal ourselves of any and all conditions that ail us. The list in the back of the book will give you a medical illness such as diabetes, indigestion or cancer along with the probable cause in your thinking. Next to that, Hay has provided a new healing thought pattern for you to practice.
For instance, I have a form of mild but chronic depression that causes me to get angry, sometimes without reason. When I looked up the probable cause for depression in the list, this is what it says: Anger you feel you do not have the right to have. And hopelessness. The new healing thought pattern provided by Louise is: I now go beyond others people’s fears and limitations. I create my life.
Chronic anger can be and often is a symptom of depression. But once you choose to forgive yourself as well as others, live your life according to your expectations and follow your true happiness, your anger can subside. Learn to love instead of hate. Learn to be kind even when you want to say unkind things. Love those you don’t even know. When any angry thought enters your mind, immediately think of a kind, loving thought to replace it.
Anxiety plays a huge role in depression. Probable causes of anxiety according to You Can Heal Your Life are: not trusting the flow and process of life. New healing thought patterns suggested by Louise Hay: I love and approve of myself and I trust the process of life. I am safe.
Many modern psychologists today believe that a person can change their life if they change their thoughts first. The saying “I’ll believe when I see it” should be changed to “I’ll see it when I believe it.”
