Shortly after diagnosed with Her2+ ER+ metastatic breast cancer, I received a package in the mail from an unknown source. Enclosed was the book, Heal Your Body, by Louise Hay. The small book, just 85 pages, includes a 62-page chart of ailments along with emotional causes plus unique healing affirmations for each ailment.
I flipped to “cancer” and found the purported emotional cause:
“Deep hurt. Longstanding resentment. Deep secret or grief eating away at self. Carrying hatreds. ‘What’s the use?'” – Louise Hay, Heal Your Body, p. 22
Yeah, no. I’m a very happy go lucky kind of gal.
“This shit is bunk,” – I thought, and put the book up on a shelf.
It’s been a couple of years since I received the anonymous package in the mail. I’m currently in remission and plan to stay that way.
Maybe She’s On To Something
Timing is often the most important factor in determining an outcome.
Curious, after watching a few videos the other day featuring Louise Hay during the Hay House World Summit, I picked up the book again to read the cancer healing affirmations:
“I lovingly forgive and release all of the past. I choose to fill my world with joy. I love and approve of myself.” – Louise Hay, Heal Your Body, p. 22
This time not so bunk. There might be something here. Much for me to ponder privately.
I believe in the power of affirmations, so I’m going to give these a try for a while. I even made a pretty graphic that you are free to share, pin and tweet as long as you give credit:
