My journey with Louise L. Hay’s work started as I was finishing my postgraduate degree in Clinical Psychology. I knew, as much as I enjoyed my studies, that the Clinical route was not for me. Knowing that my purpose involved working with people and counseling, I clearly remember opening up my arms to heaven saying: “Ok, Universe, where to from here?“
A few weeks later a dear friend asked me if I had read a book called “You Can Heal Your Life”. I had never heard of this author Louise L. Hay, and started reading. I loved everything she had to say. It resonated deeply within my body, heart and spirit.
Louise’s Hay Philosophy resonated as an affirmation with the wise gentle voice within me. I am not unique to you, we all have this wise, gentle yet assertive, voice within in ~ it is called by many names: Higher Self, Soul, Intuition, Guardian Angel, Gut feeling, a Knowingness, Spirit Guides. Whatever we choose to call this inner wise voice is, we have all had glimpses of it. As I am sure you can relate to an experience where you had a strong gut feeling which panned out.
I loved the simplicity of Louise’s work, and wanted to know more. As the Universe would synchronize my next accreditation for my life purpose, the teacher trainer for teaching the Hay Philosophy came to my city to teach such a course. Everything fell into place, and I qualified as an Accredited Facilitator.
Louise’s work and teachings changed my life. When I promote her work, I am approached by people saying: “ I got this book when I was diagnosed with cancer many years ago and have been in remission for 20 years now” followed by sharing their profound journey to healing not only their physical bodies, but also their emotional bodies. She truly is the pioneer in the field of Metaphysical healing and has opened all our hearts for creating a world we all love to live in.
Today Louise is 85 years young, and still inspires people daily. She owns one of the leading and biggest publishing houses of self-help and esoteric books and products: Hay House Publishing.
For all those peeps in South Africa, have a look at Hay House South-Africa, who share fabulous specials each month with us. HayHouse also donates 100% profit to charities. HayHouse SA donates to NOAH ( Nurturing Orphans of Aids for Humanity) a very valuable cause in Africa.
Everyday, either personally or professionally in one of my session, I ultilize at least one of her empowering tools. The affirmation “ I trust the process of life” is just one of the affirmations that got me through some really scary changes, and has definitely assisted my students through theirs.
The Hay Philosophy brings things back to basics ~ it is a simple philosophy, yet super powerful.
Below is Louise’s powerful Gratitude Prayer, I start each day with these thoughts…
“Deep at the center of my being there is an infinite well of gratitude. I now allow this gratitude to fill my heart, my body, my mind, my consciousness, my very being. This gratitude radiates out from me in all directions, touching everything in my world, and returns to me as more to be grateful for. The more gratitude I feel, the more I am aware that the supply is endless. The use of gratitude makes me feel good; it is an expression of my inner joy. It is a warm fuzzy in my life.”
