Louise Hay, on Oprah maybe 8 years ago and was instantly compelled by her sincerity, knowledge and compassion to buy this book I have since given this book as a gift to many Many of you may scratch your head or think I m crazy for saying this, but I believe there is much validity to the the mind body, negative thoughts vs positive thoughts, connection I have worked in the medical field for over 20 years and work hands on daily with patients with all sorts of mental and physical ailments and diseases I have witnessed first hand the power of positive thought and positive action at work, even with those who are severely injured or sick Again, this might sound kooky to some of you in our modern age of technology, medicine and pharmaceuticals Those have their place, too, but what can it hurt to learn to love ourselves from within, not criticize ourselves or others, or learn to forgive ourselves and others The answer is simple It can t hurt anything, only heal our lives from the very simplest to the most complex levels I recommend this book to everyone This book is actually dangerous I can t remember ever having said that about a text I read thirty pages of it, before having to

can t remember ever having said that about a text I read thirty pages of it, before having to shut it and run far away.Every single copy of it should come with a huge trigger warning for ableism, fatphobia, and victim blaming of every variety Louise Hay claims two things that are odious 1 All illnesses including cancer are caused by negative thinking, and not loving yourself enough Thus, all illness can be cured by positive thinking, and self love She claims one of her patients fixed her poor eye sight by dealing with a childhood trauma.2 Everyone chooses their parents, and our energy attracts people So those who have bad energy, and don t love themselves enough, attract abusers, rapists, and financial poverty.Whatcan be said about this book, than those two main points Actually, a fewthings can be said Louise Hay came to fame during, and because of, the onset of the AIDS crisis in the United States She takes beautiful, enriching concepts such as self love, affirmation and forgiveness, and then tells people their illnesses are a result of not doing these things well enough The word charlatan comes to mind Also, immoral I absolutely believe in the mind body connection, that our mental health affects our bodily health, and that our mental states can lead us to greater or poorer physical well being But to take such a giant leap, to claim without any evidence except self serving anecdotes that you can cure cancer by loving yourselfThat people who are poor are just attracting bad energy, and don t love themselves enough Oh, also, were you aware that fat thighs are caused by anger toward ones father She takes excellent, inspiring concepts self love, forgiveness, compassion, and adjusting one s negative self talk and coats it all in a big repulsive swath of victim blaming and willful ignorance about biology, anatomy and medicine My heart hurts for people who read this text and love it It is full of great concepts that are overshadowed by Hay s belief that if one can control the mind, one can control the body Even Buddhist monks know that you can t eliminate pain, that you can only be mindful of it, and be mindful through it Louise Hay seems to think she can eliminate all pain and illness with mindfulness and self love, which is a fantasy Life iscomplex than that we can use self love and affirmation to get through illness, but to think that we can eliminate pain by sheer force of will is setting ourselves up for failure, disappointment, and we re left blaming ourselves for not being able to sufficiently heal our bodies perfectly and completely with self love Bodies are incurably fallible, they cannot be perfectly healed none of us get out of here alive Self love is important, but equally so is tenderness and acceptance toward our own mortality, and fallibility Louise Hay sells the idea that positive thinking and self love can help us get around this truth But we can t get around the truth of our own mortality we can only get through it, with self love and affirmation.This book is repulsive I can t wait to take it back to the library and get it out of my house This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To

looking at it again 20 years later, it still doesn t First, this book is an entertaining read and has some good suggestions about how to overcome trauma and the importance of forgiveness Also, she makes the connection that physical health is directly linked to psychological and emotional health, which is a logical assessment However, since she has never worked in the arena of medicine, mental health, or any other related profession, it makes it difficult to put a lot of weight in her arguments.Specifically, she fails to adequately address how serious birth defects, such as downs syndrome, spina bifida, infant AIDS, cerebral palsy and the like are connected to mental health While certainly once a person becomes cognizant of their emotions and surroundings, it makes sense to connect physical health with emotions However, it is just outrageous and wrongheaded to think that any of the infants born with major problems are somehow responsible for their own health She specifically cites birth defects on pg 181, where she said that these conditions were due to karma and that the child chose to come that way We choose our parents and our children Is she serious This is absolutely an odious argument I got this for my mother after a personal tragedy destroyed our family She was having trouble eating, sleeping, smiling, being awake, being alive When she had finished, I read it myself and found incredible tools there for taking responsibility for myself, while letting go of my irritation, anger, whatever, toward those whom I perceive as shirking responsibility This book has given me tools to get things DONE, to control my own thoughts and thought process, to put my powers to use for Good, I got this for my mother after a personal tragedy destroyed our family She was having trouble eating, sleeping, smiling, being awake, being alive When she had finished, I read it myself and found incredible tools there for taking responsibility for myself, while letting go of my irritation, anger, whatever, toward those whom I perceive as shirking responsibility This book has given me tools to get things DONE, to control my own thoughts and thought process, to put my powers to use for Good, and to make my passions work for me, instead of letting my thoughts, feelings, and FEAR get in the way of achieving my goals.Since reading this book I ve improved the relationship between my adopted child and myselfimproved the quality and communication of my marriageimproved my health and dietmoved my family into a bigger house in a better neighborhoodstarted going to night school to embark on a new careermade peace with my family situation, if not all family members yetI still have lots of things left to clear out in my skeleton closet, it s not all butterflies and rainbows in my heart and mind, but I feel better and am finally getting past the fear that has held me back from doing the things I want to It took a long time, and it really is a lot of work, to identify your own negative patterns and work to correct them, but it is incredibly worth the effort It took the loss of my closest family member to force me to realize the extent of my own self defeating habits, but I am once again able to take care of and love my children, to love my husband and myself, and better than ever before
