This book, by Louise L. Hay, was recommended to me by Anne. By all accounts, Louise has transformed the lives of millions of people, and I can quite believe it.
In this book, Louise offers an insight into the relationship between the mind and the body, exploring the way that limiting thoughts and ideas control and constrict us, and she offers a powerful key to understanding the roots of our physical diseases and discomforts.
This is the first of this kind of ‘self-help’ book that I have read from cover to cover. I still pick it up every now and then.
In the introduction to the book, Louise suggests that whenever we are ill we need to search our hearts to see who it is we need to forgive…adding that the very person you find it hardest to forgive is the one you need to let go of the most. Forgiveness means giving up, letting go. It has nothing to do with condoning behaviour. It’s just letting the whole thing go. Challenging yet aspirational stuff I think you’ll agree!
Chapter 15 offers a correlation between problems or illnesses, their probable cause, and an affirmation (new thought pattern) to repeat to yourself in order to let go and to heal.
The book ends with Louise’s own story, which I won’t spoil but suffice to say that it makes very thought provoking and inspirational reading.
Until tomorrow, love and healing , sm x
