I love the teachings of Louise Hay who was a famous therapist back in the 1980s. Her book “You Can Heal Your Life” is a classic which I still dip into today.
Here is a summary of her beliefs.
We are each responsible for our experiences.
Every thought we think is creating our future.
The point of power is always in the present moment.
Everyone suffers from self-hatred and guilt.
The bottom line for everyone is I am not good enough.
It’s only a thought and a thought can be changed.
We create every illness in our body.
Resentment, criticism and guilt are the most damaging patterns.
Releasing resentment will dissolve disease.
We must release the past and forgive everyone.
We must be willing to begin to learn to love ourselves.
Self-approval and self-acceptance in the now are keys to positive changes.
When we really love ourselves, everything in our life works.
What do you think of these statements? Some are certainly controversial. Releasing the past and learning to love yourself is the core of what I do with my clients in hypnotherapy.
