The work of Louise Hay has transformed the lives of millions! Here are life-changing techniques from her philosophy to empower YOUR life!

1. Be willing to love and accept yourself – no matter what! You don’t need to lose the weight, have the relationship, or anything else first. Start NOW.
2. Pay attention to your thoughts. If your thoughts create your future (and we believe they do!) - are your “typical” thoughts during the day the ones you really want to be thinking? Change them.
3. Learn to create and use powerful affirmations to focus on what you DO want in your life.
4. Nurture your Inner Child. Talk to him and her with encouraging words and positive messages.
5. Be willing to change. Our egos tends to hang on to “the way things are.” Trust yourself and Spirit as you change.
6. Meditate on a regular basis. This will help you listen to your inner guidance.
7. Listen to your body’s messages. They will give you vital clues about the emotions affecting you.
8. Honor your emotions, but don’t get stuck in them. Release anger, resentment, and guilt.
9. Forgive the past and free yourself from bondage.
10. Love yourself for the unique and magnificent being you are.

Practice these one at a time, a week at a time. Truly changing your life requires awareness of current patterns, and the conscious decision to change them. As you begin to think more positive thoughts, your brain chemistry literally changes. New neural pathways are created. The more you CHOOSE to think new and empowering thoughts, the more new pathways are created, while the previous connections slowly dissolve. If you haven't seen, What the Bleep Do We Know?, I encourage you to do so. If offers a wonderful scientific explanation of why affirmations work!
