An excerpt from You Can Heal Your Life:
Life Is Really Very Simple. What We Give Out, We Get Back
What we think about ourselves becomes the truth for us. I believe that everyone, myself included, is responsible for everything in our lives, the best and the worst. Every thought we think is creating our future. Each one of us creates our experiences by our thoughts and our feelings. The thoughts we think and the words we speak create our experiences.
If you haven’t seen Hay House’s Lifestyles series of gorgeous gift books, there is no better way to acquaint yourself than with publisher/author Louise Hay’s You Can Heal Your Life. A bestseller for many years, You Can Heal Your Life has been republished with bright, beautiful illustrations in full, living color and exquisite typography–each and every page is a work of art by artist Joan Perrin Falquet. The timeless message of the book is that we are each responsible for our own reality and “dis-ease.” Hay believes we make ourselves ill by having thoughts of self-hatred. She includes a directory of ailments and emotional causes for each with a corresponding affirmation to help overcome the illness. For example, the probable cause of multiple sclerosis is “mental hardness, hard-heartedness, iron will, and inflexibility.” The healing “thought pattern” would be: “By choosing loving, joyous thoughts, I created a loving joyous world. I am safe and free.” –P. Randall Cohan
