I’ve known of Louise Hay for some years now but only really paid attention to her in the past few months. This in reality is pretty odd, but then again this is me…odd and weird are my friends.
See, I have two of Louise Hay’s books with me. I bought them some 5 years ago because it looked..ahem..pretty and it was on sale. It’s one of her best sellers called “You can heal your life” and I got both the book and the workbook. I bought them, I brought them home, I placed them on my shelf and…yea, that story ends there.
Another odd thing is this. I knew of Louise Hay and I knew of Hay House. It was only recently I realised that Louise HAY and HAY House had a connection. Hay House was started by Louise Hay. Ha!
Here are some other things that make her pretty cool:
- She started her studies when she was 48 years old.
- She wrote her first book when she was 51 years old.
- She published her best seller when she was 59 years old.
- She started her publishing business at 62 years of age.
- She just celebrated her 90th birthday this year.
- And she beat cancer.
And no..I didn’t really know all that about her either..I took all those off her website: Louise Hay
I know that affirmations are the “go to” for those who are working on themselves, for whatever purpose. However, I’ll be honest. I never really resonated with the ones that sound like something used in those what-chu-call-it..marketing meetings. (There is a perfect scene of what I mean in the movie “Love and other drugs” but I can’t find it on YouTube. Lots of the steamy scenes from that movie on there though..snort)
Anyway, what I meant to say was that I recently started paying close attention to the affirmations by Louise Hay and I find them totally..awesome.
Yes, they are all positive but it fortunately lacks this sense of “hype”. It feels light, if that makes sense to you. It feels gentle. It feels supportive. It feels like something a wise and dear one would say to you. It feels comfortable. It feels real. It feels clean and all the other good stuff.
Here are a few of my favourites. If you click here – it will take you to her Facebook page. And if you do have a Facebook account, like the page because she posts daily affirmations that will be delivered straight to your timeline. There’s even a phone app to get these affirmations.
Below is an example of affirmations she uses in addition to the shorter version.
Do you do affirmations? Or have a “go to” affirmation person?
Let me know 🙂
