You Can Heal Your Life

This is the title of a book written by Louise L Hay. Louise Hay is also the founder of Hay House; publisher of many famous self help authors like Wayne Dyer, Don Miguel Ruiz, Esther Hicks, and  Marianne Williamson.

Hay House is certainly the place to go for high quality Mind, Body, Spirit books. But I wanted to write a little about You Can Heal Your Life to follow on from yesterday’s blog post If the Mind Creates Illness, How Can We Use it to Create Wellness? This book has been around since 1984, but it is still completely relevant. It was written when the exploration of the Mind-Body connection was in its infancy and pioneered by just a few – people like Caroline Myss. My copy of You Can Heal Your Life is a beautifully illustrated gift edition full of colour and wonderful illustrations that provide a real lift to the spirit. It is cheering just to leaf through the pages.

At the beginning of the book Louise Hay lists several statements about her philosophy.

Two of special note are:

We create every so-called illness in our body.

Releasing resentment will dissolve even cancer.

One of my favourite parts of the book is the quick reference guide which consists of several pages of health problems and their likely causes. I find these disturbingly accurate and very helpful.

If you are interested in self-healing, and there is no suggestion here that you should do this instead of seeking medical advice, then this book is a must for your bookshelf. Louise Hay even healed herself from cancer using what she teaches in this book. She states ‘dis-ease can be healed, if we are willing to change the way we think and believe and act.’

This book is much more than just a list of physical problems and their possible causes it is a way to live. It is split into four parts. Part 1 is about Louise Hay’s beliefs about life and living. Part 2 is about how problems arise, how we resist change and what we need to do on a daily basis to ensure healthy living. Part 3 looks at those main areas of life that we pretty much all need to be working well in order to live happily: relationships, work, success, prosperity, and the body. It also includes that list of problems and solutions I mentioned earlier. Part 4 winds things up and Louise Hay writes about her own encounter with cancer and what she did to heal it.

If you know nothing, or very little, about self-healing then this book is the best place to start. It is easy to understand, well-written, and will leave you feeling as though you are back in control again.

It is also the start of a journey, a journey where you will never look back.
