Book Review: Louise L. Hay
Experience Your Good Now! Learning to Use Affirmation.
Louise L. Hay is one of my all time favorite authors and I have great respect and gratitude for her pioneer efforts in the field of alternate healing and self-empowerment. I first came to understand the power of using positive affirmations in the early 1990's when I came across her book "You Can Heal Your Life" and "The Power is Within You." Reading these books changed my outlook on life in numerous ways, and by implementing her suggestions my life has become rich and meaningful. So when Hay House asked me to review her latest book "Experience Your Good Now!" and I received a free copy in the mail, I was truly delighted!
Louise Hay's latest book is well presented, and even though it appears to be a small book, it is full of wisdom and action-orientated exercises to help facilitate positive and productive changes in your life. The book also includes a free affirmation CD, which runs for about 65 minutes. The CD is a great companion to use in the car or any other time you want to feel good. Louise Hay offers insightful tips and affirmations to help improve every area of your life. Whether you need to improve your health, addictive behaviors, relationships, fearful emotions, critical thinking, money, career, and more, you will find an abundance of positive affirmations and constructive ideas to help change your thinking and learn how to cultivate more joy, peace, love, purpose and creativity.
This book takes you on a journey to examine your deeply held beliefs and thought-patterns. It provides a wealth of information to help you release old ways of thinking that no longer serve your highest good, and it will show you how to create new, healthy and constructive ways of thinking and living your life. Louise says "Think happy thoughts. It's that simple. And it's doable." She goes on to say "Now….today….this moment…you can choose to change your thinking. Your life won't turn around overnight, but if you're consistent and make the choice on a daily basis to think thoughts that make you feel good, you'll definitely make positive changes in every area of your life."
Working with affirmations is experiential, and in order to receive the full benefits you need to make at least a 30 day commitment. Reading the book and following through with the exercises is really about making a commitment to improving the quality of your life. Many people give up after a few days, or hold a belief that this is too simple and can't possibly bring about solid and lasting results, but don't be fooled because with conscious effort using affirmations, doing mirror work and cultivating a more positive outlook on life you can bring about remarkable changes. You just have to do it! If you are ready to create a better life for yourself and to take responsibility for your own wellbeing and happiness then this book will be a charming companion on your spiritual journey.
This little book will show you how to release all limitations and enhance your everyday life, moment-by-moment, as you learn how to retrain your thinking. I believe that one of the most important things we can do this lifetime is to take the time to look at our habitual thoughts and deeply ingrained beliefs that are blocking and limiting us from living fully and vibrantly. Louise Hay states ‘Sometimes what you want and what you believe you deserve are two different things" and she will show you ways in her book of how to bridge this gap and how to align with joy.
If you feel stuck in your life or if you are tired of attracting the same unconstructive experiences into your life, or if you want to increase the joy in your life and live with more awareness, then I highly recommend this book. You have the power to make wonderful changes; all you need to do is make a commitment to improve your life, and as your life gets better, you will affect the lives of those around you in a positive way. The only way for you to discover the power of affirmations is to implement it, to just go ahead and do it, and once you shift, change or heal your life in some way, then you will be a firm believer! The real magic is in the doing!
As Albert Einstein said "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it." Louise Hay in Experience Your Good Now can show you how to change your thinking and your consciousness and thereby change and heal your life! Don't be fooled by the simplicity of this book and underestimate it's wisdom.
I truly believe Louise Hay is one of the giants of spiritual self help and she proves it again in this small volume. Thank you Louise!
