Louise Hay

Louise Hay is an author, minister, and publisher whose books have touched millions of lives.  In the 1970s, after several years of counseling work, Ms. Hay compiled a reference guide outlining the mental components of many physical ailments.  Her book, Heal Your Body, offered positive thought patterns for encouraging health.  Louise was able to put her philosophies into practice when she was diagnosed with cancer. She developed an intensive program of affirmations, visualization, nutritional cleansing and psychotherapy. Within six months, she was completely healed of cancer.  She continues to develop and publish materials on the process of inner healing.

You Can Heal Your Life

Louise Hay's You Can Heal Your Life (review or buy) has been established as a classic in the field of inner healing.  In her book, Ms. Hay develops a philosophy of healing that rests on a few core principles: "Every thought we think is creating our future... We must release the past and forgive everyone... We much be willing to begin to learn to love ourselves."  Ms. Hay has successfully applied these principles in her own life, and assisted millions of other people to do the same.

The Power Is Within You

Louise Hay has written and lectured extensively on the importance of taking control of our thoughts, and turning to a Higher Power for guidance in our lives.  In The Power Is Within You (review or buy), Ms. Hay builds on these themes and shares stories of healing from her own life and those whom she has worked with over the years.  Themes of forgiveness (including self-forgiveness), healing, and prosperity are covered.
