You Can Heal Your Life by Louise L. Hay
First line: “Life is really very simple. What we give out, we get back.”
I don’t doubt that metaphysics is real. It’s not about religion or even spirituality, though you could easily connect all the dots if you so wish. Hay’s philosophy espouses letting go of the past, loving ourselves, daily affirmations and other exercises to heal your life from the inside out. Including dis-eases. For those who believe in the mind/body/spirit connection, this will make sense, even if you may not feel comfortable at first looking in the mirror and telling yourself how fabulous you are, even when you are in physical or emotional pain. It’s not about ego, but about acceptance and positive results from positive thinking. While I’m not sure “holding on to the garbage of your past” can cause anal fistula and hemorrhoids, letting go of the past, with a nice glop of Preparation H, couldn’t hurt. Unfortunately, as we age we let the good mood of our youth sour, and tend to complain about the aches and pains instead of embrace the joy of the every day. For that reason alone, the book is worth the read.
