Louise. L. Hay - You can heal your life|
- The Universe totally supports us in every thought we choose to think and believe
Put another way,out subconscious mind accepts whatever we choose to believe. They both mean that what I believe about myself
and about yourself and about life becomes true for you. And we have UNLIMITED choices about what we can think. When we
know this, then it makes sense to choose "everyone is always helpful" rather than "people are out to get me."
- The point of power is always in the present moment
All the events you have experienced in your lifetime up to this moment have been created by your thoughts and beliefs you
have held in the past. They were created by the thoughts and words you used yesterday, last week, last month, last year, 10,
20, 30, 40 or more years ago, dependinding on how old you are. However, that is your past. It is over and done with. What
is important in this moment is what you are choosing to think and believe and say right now. For these thoughts and words
will create your future. You might notice what thought you are thinking at this moment. Is it negative or positive? Do you
want this thought to be creating your future? Just notice and be aware.
- We can change our attitude toward the past
The past is over and done. We cannot change that now. Yet we can change our thoughts about the past. How foolish for us to
PUNISH OURSELVES in the present moment because someone hurt us in the long ago past.
- To release the past, we must be willing to forgive
We need to choose to release the past and forgive everyone, ourselves included. We may not know how to forgive, and we may
not want to forgive; but the very fact we say we are willing to forgive begins the healing process.
-Loving the self
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 body and our mind. "Love" to me is an 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.
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?
Let's look at some of the ways we don't love ourselves:
We scold and criticize ourselves endlessly.
We mistreat our bodies with food, alcohol, and drugs.
We choose to believe we are unlovable.
We are afraid to charge a decent price for our services.
We create illnesses and pain in our bodies.
We procrastinate on things that would benefit us.
We live in chaos and disorder.
We create debt and burdens.
We attract lovers and mates that belittle us.
What are some of your ways?
If we deny our good in any way, it is an act of not loving ourselves. I remember a client I worked with who wore glasses.
One day we released an old fear from childhood. The next day she awakened to find her contact lenses were bothering her too
much to wear. She looked around and found her eyesight was perfectly clear. yes she spent the whole day saying, "I don't
believe it, I don't believe it." The next day she was back to wearing contacts. Our subconscious mind has no sense of
humor. She couldn't believe she had created perfect eyesight.
Think of a rose from the time it is a tiny bud. As it opens to full flower, till the last petal falls, it is a tiny bud. As
it opens to full flower, till the last petal falls, is is always beautiful, always perfect, always changing. So it is with
us. We are always perfect, always beautiful, and ever changing. We are doing the best we can with the understanding,
awareness and knowledge we have. As we gain more understanding, awareness and knowledge, we will do things differently.
