Today we want to give a small tribute from this little blog to Louise Hay , alma mater of positive affirmations worldwide.
Who is Louise Hay?
Louise Hay is one of the great leaders of personal growth, who left this world on her way to a new destination on August 30, 2017 at 90 years of age while she slept. On their website they indicate that “she transitioned peacefully while she slept” What a nice way to say it!
Louise published her first book about the body-mind relationship at 50 years of age. A few years later she had to fight against cancer. One of her teachers at that time urged her to take action: “You can not lose the battle against cancer with all the work you have done in you.” Louise Hay got into it and through a work of positive affirmations, visualizations, nutritional cleansing and psychotherapy six months later was completely cured.
Life is really very simple: we receive what we have given. #LouiseHay
It was after this episode that marked her life, when she wrote her best-known book:
You can heal your life
Her second book published at the age of 58 in 1984 became a huge bestseller and has sold more than 50 million copies around the world. Three years later she founded her own publishing house, Hay House, where she has published books by some of the greatest personal development figures such as Brian Weiss, Don Miguel Ruiz and Wayne Dyer himself among many others.
The concept of the book is very simple: all of us, without exception, can transform our life through our thoughts
I remember that the book was given to me by a very great friend, my brother, who unfortunately decided that our ways would go away. And I leave in my mind a residue, which I think in one way or another was part of my way of facing life. I think that beings like Louise Hay are the ones that help maintain the energy balance of all of us, of our universe.
“In the infinity of life where I am, everything is perfect and complete. I no longer choose to believe in old limitations and shortcomings. I now choose to start seeing myself as the Universe sees me, perfect and complete.”
A brief reflection on positive affirmations
We can spend minutes, hours and days engaged in reading articles like this, but if we do not take action, all this will have served little.
If we do not take a first step, everything will be in a beautiful dream. To improve our life we have to change our reality, and with total security we have to leave our comfort zone to get it.
We need to change and improve our habits and programming with positive affirmations can be a great step to achieve it.
But first you have to believe in yourself to be able to take these steps and also have a calm mind for what I recommend you do exercises like mindfulness or meditation .
The positive affirmations are not to catch them all at once, we have to focus on each of them. That is why this article has 52 phrases, so that each week of the year you give yourself body and soul to each of them. With some you will be more comfortable than with others, but it is important that you do not give up. I remember that the language they use (love, love oneself …) did not connect with my way of understanding life, until through my vital essence I can totally connect with that way of expressing myself.
The power of our mind is infinite. We are energy, and the energy vibrates. We are in constant vibration with everything that exists in the Universe. If our energy emits a positive light towards the outside and towards ourselves, what we achieve is to vibrate in a positive frequency. And if we fill our heads with negative thoughts, we will vibrate with the negative of the universe.
If what we generate with our thoughts and words are positive projections of ourselves and our surroundings, the path that lies ahead will be positive.
