This moment is filled with joy. I choose to experience the sweetness of today.
This is one of the most beautiful affirmations Louise Hay gifted us all. Yes, we have a choice of feeling. We may or may not have created every experience of our life. But, we allow all the experiences in our life. We create or we passively allow. As the responsibility lies with us, so is the freedom. We are free to decide about how we want to feel.
Louise also believed that the word ‘should’ is a limiting word and should be removed from the dictionary. She suggested ‘could’ as a replacement. It is more empowering.
She has given a thorough prescription for bringing change in our lives. Dealing with resistance to change and building the new are the two very important practical guidances any motivational book can give us. For me, however, You Can Heal Your Life is not just a motivational self help book. It’s a Bible.
Philosophers before her also spoke about Self Love, Self Acceptance, and Self Forgiveness. But, she has explained these phenomena with great clarity and effectiveness. In her opinion, self love is the solution to every problem of your personality or life.
Louise Hay was a reservoir of Affirmations. All her books not only list affirmations, but contain the A to Z of affirmations. She has proved with personal example how a change in thought can heal even cancer.
She had put decades in the qualitative research about the mind and body relationship. Heal Your Body was her first book which was based on the outcomes of her research. It was very small, yet contained great wisdom. Her deductions are approved by the medical professionals.
Her passion to heal the world is unmatchable. Her devotion to spread the importance of self love is peerless. For me, she is immortal. I did grieve for her transition. But, now I choose to celebrate the fact that She was born. She was a blessing to mankind. Her works will serve the mankind for ages. I have been gifting her phenomenal book You Can Heal Your Life. I will continue to do that. But, my true tribute to Louise is making her favourite affirmation a part of my daily life: I love and approve of myself.
I love you, Louise and shall always do. Louise was the example of the existence of the Divine.
