Louise Hay on Loving Yourself to Ageless Health

A renowned leader of the self-help movement from its early days, Louise Hay is celebrated world wide for teaching—-by personal example and through her bestselling book, You Can Heal Your Life—how each of us can transform our mind, body and spirit by changing the way we think.  Her positive philosophy has sparked an industry and her Hay House publishing group.

Nourishing mind and body, loving life, learning and growing, giving back and moving ahead—these comprise Hay’s program for creating health, happiness and longevity.  At 88, she continues to travel for business and pleasure, embracing vital, joy-filled days with a thankful smile.  Her new book, Loving Yourself to Great Health, co-authored with Ahlea Khadro and Heather Dane, explains how she’s taking all she knows to the next level.

Why does first applying love and forgiveness to yourself make a happy, healthy and long life possible?

Loving yourself is the foundation for living the life you want.  A healthy and happy life is rooted in self-love, and forgiveness is an act of self-love.  It all comes down to how you think and treat yourself.  What we give out we get back, so it all starts with us.  Remember, no matter what the problem is, there is only one answer: loving yourself.  Start with small steps and be gentle.  If you start there, magical things will happen.

How do you manage to engage in a stream of loving affirmations 24/7?

Practice, practice, practice!  Slowly, bit-by-bit, start each day with a loving act towards yourself.  Loving affirmations and worrying about things take up the same amount of time; you still get the same things done along the way, but worrying creates stress, while affirmations will brighten your life.  It can be exhausting if you fight the shift and make it difficult.  If you make kindness to yourself and others a simple part of everyday life, it isn’t exhausting at all.

What are some key elements to crafting a life experience that supports and nourishes ageless being?

Choose thoughts that bring love into your life and laugh a lot.  Say yes to life and the magic it brings.  I trust that life will bring me exactly what I need, and part of that is realizing that I don’t need to know everything, because life brings me people like Ahlea and Heather.

A third of our life is spent eating, and it’s essential that we know the best way to do this.  Start your day with water and an act of self-love.  Eat real food; seasonal, organic, natural foods are a positive affirmation to your body.  Poop every day, figuratively and literally.  Learn to listen to your body and its wisdom.  Choose exercise that you love and that makes you feel good.

Also, go on a media diet.  Filter out from your consciousness any messages that say you are not good enough or that separate you from the beautiful and lovable person you are.  Surround yourself with like-minded people that share good news and love to laugh.

The core belief founding your lifework is that every thought we have is creating our future.  Is scientific research now supporting that?

When I began teaching people about affirmations, there wasn’t any science to support it, but we knew it worked, and now studies verify that.  I particularly love Bruce Lipton’s scientific research showing that we are not controlled by our genes because the genetic blueprint can be altered through positive changes in our beliefs.

I hear reports every day of how people are healing their lives by changing their thoughts through cultivating self-love and personal affirmations.  They are seeing healing of autoimmune diseases, obesity, addictions, post-traumatic stress and many other so-called incurable illnesses.  It’s amazing what happens when you are kind and loving to yourself.

What is your secret to aging gracefully through the years?

It’s simple.  It’s about getting your thoughts and food right and having fun along the way.  If you are thinking positive thoughts but feeding yourself processed, unnatural or sugary foods, you are sending yourself mixed messages.  Feed yourself nourishing food and think loving thoughts.  Any time you don’t know what else to do, focus on love.  Loving yourself makes you feel good, and good health comes from feeling good.

Thankful for Ultimate Gifts

Good morning friends, neighbors, followers!  Happy Sunday!  I had the chance to see a movie called “The Ultimate Gift” which was not only an inspiration, but came with a message.  Throughout the movie was a list of “ultimate gifts” that when you read them, you may not see some of them as such, but if you really think about it, they can be.

1.  The Gift of Work–  See your job as more than just a way to pay your bills.  Whatever work you are doing, be thankful and know that you are helping someone or a group of someone’s in a bigger way than you could possibly imagine.

2.  The Gift of Money–  This is a reminder of the famous saying:  “It is better to give than to receive”  Now, I’m not talking about giving the gift of money to receive it back, that’s not the reason to give at all.   We all have love and compassion which resides in our heart and we have the opportunity to share our blessings with someone who is not so fortunate.  Maybe it’s a certain someone who is close to you that is behind on their rent or just needs a little extra money to pay a bill.  Whatever the circumstance may be, sharing is caring.  When you perform random acts of kindness, you will see how the universe opens up to you.

3.  The Gift of Friends-  “A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.” ~Elbert Hubbard

A true friend is hard to find.

That’s why when you come across one; you should hold onto them and cherish the joy that friendship brings. Friends help you be honest with yourself and they keep you from doing things that you might regret.

They are confidants, counselors and coaches. Friends helps you be you without apology.

4.  The Gift of Learning-  Learn to learn.  There is so much information available on this planet and there is never too much you can learn.  Maybe take some time to learn a new language or learn about different cultures.  The possibilities of the mind are endless.

5.  The Gift of Problems-  You don’t begin to live until you’ve lost everything.  Try not to see your problems as a failure or that you have been defeated.  Instead look at them as an experience and what may be coming to you as a connection to something that will be beneficial for you and your life journey.

6.  The Gift of Family-  Spending time with family is a blessing.  But maybe for some of us, being around our family is not our cup of tea.  Yes, it’s possible that some members of our family can be a little difficult to be around or that we just don’t see eye to eye on some things.  However much we may dislike our family at times, they are still our FAMILY and that in itself is a precious gift.  Take time to be with family, because life is short and that little effort that you make means more than you could ever realize.

7.  The Gift of Laughter-  See life as joyous.  Laughter is the best medicine, no matter who you are.  Did you know that it takes more muscles to frown than smile?  So, we should be smiling and laughing a lot!  Besides that, laughing is just plain fun!  So, go ahead….live, love and laugh, laugh, laugh!!!!

8.  The Gift of Dreams-  We are all free to dream.  What was your dream when you were a child?  Did you want to be a prima ballerina, a fireman, the president?  What about as an adult?  What is your dream?  Have you made that dream/dreams reality?  What is your life-long dream?

9.  The Gift of Giving-  Being generous is one of the greatest gifts.  Giving is an act of kindness.  It doesn’t have to necessarily be in the form of money, it could be clothes, food, your time.  Giving someone a HUG!!!!

10.  The Gift of Gratitude-  Learn to be thankful for what you have.  You might not have that shiny new car or that big house you always wanted or millions of dollars in the bank.  Don’t focus on the things you don’t have, be grateful for those things that you do.  Little things mean a lot.

11.  The Gift of A Day-  What would you do with your last day on Earth?  Cherish every day and take those extra moments to look around and enjoy the outdoors, a friend, your husband/wife, your mom/dad, your kids.

12.  The Gift of Love-  Love unconditionally.  We are on this planet to love each other, no matter what color we are, what religion, male, female.  We are all one!  Love as much as you can because that is the biggest gift of all!

This is what I am doing today and for some time to come. May you all have peace, love and happiness! Tammy

Life is full of ups and downs

But if you believe in yourself,

You will always come through
