You Can Heal Your Life: Book Review

This is one of my favorite books on metaphysics.  Metaphysics simply expresses how the mind/emotions affect the physical body.  Alternative healers have known this for a gazillion years, and finally the traditional medical community is beginning to acknowledging it, too.  Louise Hay’s writings are easily read and understood.  She includes many health issues and the probable thoughts/emotions that are causing it, then, adds the new thought pattern that could turn you back around to health!

Ms. Hay takes the reader through a session, much like you would experience in a private session with her or at one of her workshops.  The information posed in this book is taken from her previous work, Heal Your Body.  There are exercises in the book that you may use.  Utilizing these will begin to change your life.  She suggests even working through the book with a friend or family member.  Imagine the healing we could experience if this book was studied and applied in book clubs!

Included are affirmations that will assist you in making changes in your life.  She gives hope and encourages all that no matter how low you may be, you CAN start to change your life for the better.

I love the points on her philosophy.  There are a few that stand out to me…

“We are each responsible for all of our experiences.”

“Every thought we think is creating our future.”

“It’s only a thought, and a thought can be changed.”

“When we really love ourselves, everything in our life works.”

If we could simply grasp that last one, we all would live our lives with peacefulness and ease.

Let’s think about it…what do we give out?  Do we give out griping, complaining, ranting, unfriendly looks, ingratitude?  Do we give out happy smiles, complements, acts of kindness, love, gratitude?  What do we expect in return?

If, what she says in that first point above is true, then what are our experiences in life?

Do we live in the beautiful flow of life with good things appearing, or do we live feeling like we only get the raw end of the deal in our lives?

Ever wonder how you will be remembered by others upon your passing this life?

What legacy do you want to leave?

I’d challenge you to ask friends or family to honestly answer how they view your attitude in life as a whole.  Ask someone that lives with you, or spends a lot of time with you, what phrases do they hear you repeat?  This may just give you some real insight into who you are, today.

Want to change?  Change your thoughts.  Remember, Ms. Hay’s point on the above list is that these are just thoughts that can be changed.  There is hope!

What do you do and how do you treat someone you truly love, with all your heart, unconditionally?  I would challenge you to make out a list of those things that you would love to receive and DO them for yourself.  Show YOU that you are wonderful, loveable, infinite, deserving to receive every good thing life has to offer, FIRST!  THEN, and only then, give out by the same measure of love for others.

Learning to love and care for ourselves is the most important job we have to accomplish, because then, you actually have something to give out!  As the saying goes…you can’t give what you don’t have.

As you progress through these exercises, watch your mind/emotions change for the positive and how it will positively affect your physical body.  There is hope for healing our bodies through our minds.  If we believe we’re sick and diseased, we will be.  But, if we believe we are loving and healthy, we will be that, too!

Choose today, begin today!
