Banyen's Description: 

This is the most popular of Louise Hay’s many inspiring books. She dedicates this book thus, “May this offering help you find the place within where you know your own self-worth, the part of you that is pure love and self-acceptance.”

She writes so clearly, engagingly, about the inner turmoils that snare us so much, and about ways to heal.

I continue to explain that no matter what their problem seems to be, there is only one thing I ever work on with anyone, and this is Loving the Self. Love is the miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.

I am not talking about vanity or arrogance or being stuck-up, for that is not love. It is only fear. I am talking about having a great respect for ourselves and a gratitude for the miracle of our bodies and our minds.

“Love” to me is appreciation to such a degree that it fills my heart to bursting and overflows. Love can go in any direction. I can feel love for:

The very process of life itself.

The joy of being alive.

The beauty I see.

Another person.


The process of the mind.

Our bodies and the way they work.

Animals, birds, fish.

Vegetation in all its forms.

The Universe and the way it works.




What can you add to this list?

At the core of this book is “The List,” taken from her book Heal Your Body—a 60 page list of conditions from abdominal cramps to yeast infections, with their probable causes (Fear. Stopping the Process” and “Denying your own needs. Not supporting yourself” respectively), and recommended new thought patterns (“I trust the process of life. I am safe.” and “I now choose to support myself in loving, joyous ways.” respectively).

An excerpt from You Can Heal Your Life:


Life Is Really Very Simple. What We Give Out, We Get Back


What we think about ourselves becomes the truth for us. I believe that everyone, myself included, is responsible for everything in our lives, the best and the worst. Every thought we think is creating our future. Each one of us creates our experiences by our thoughts and our feelings. The thoughts we think and the words we speak create our experiences.

Louise L. Hay- If you do the exercises progressively as they appear in the book, by the time you have finished, you will have begun to change your life....Each chapter opens with an affirmation. Each of these is good to use when you are working on that area of your life. Book cover- Since beginning her career as a Science of Mind minister in 1981, she has assisted thousands of people in discovering and using the full creative powers for personal growth and self-healing. Louise’s work have been translated into 25 different languages in 33 countries throughout the world.
