You Can Heal Your Life
Louise L. Hay


 While most people tend to leave the control of their lives to others by blaming the circumstances, people and situations, this book has a wonderful message – You can heal your life, you are the master of your life.

Let me start with the last chapter, conclusion. In this chapter Louise Hay tells about her life with abused childhood and later problems and her subsequent discovery of spiritual path where she learnt the basic principle that all dis-ease has origin in our minds. She started helping people and then as if to test her, she gets cancer and doctors advise operation as soon as possible. She takes time from doctors and explains how she applied the principles to herself completely from cancer by natural methods. She says – ‘dis-ease can be healed, if we are willing to change the way we think and believe and act’.


Books by Louise Hay


This book is a sequel to her earlier book ‘You can heal your body’ where she lists how our distorted mental patterns create dis-ease in our body and how we can recover by releasing the mental patterns.

In the present book, she elaborates the concept detailing the principles. She starts the book with ‘What I believe’ – giving a list of principles that operate in our lives. Normally we develop various mental patterns during our childhood and we attract the external circumstances according to our internal mental patterns. We are so accustomed (and comfortable) with our own mental patterns that we find it difficult even to accept that there is another way. She says that resentment, criticism, guilt and fear cause more problems than anything else. The solution is to start accepting ourselves, release the old patterns and develop self love.


She elaborates these concepts in the later chapters, explains how we can release old patterns and build new. In a separate section, she writes on how to put these ideas to work in various areas of our lives such as relationships, work, success in life, prosperity, and bodily problems.

In the chapter on body, she lists out body problems along with probable cause in terms of mental patterns and suggests a new mental pattern. For example, deep hurt, long standing resentment and grief can bring cancer. The new mental pattern is to learn to forgive and release the past.

We create our life with our mental patterns. Mental patterns are a result of thought and thought can be changed with effort. This book is a must read for all who want to take control of their lives.
