An excerpt from You Can Heal Your Life:

Life Is Really Very Simple. What We Give Out, We Get Back

What we think about ourselves becomes the truth for us. I believe that everyone, myself included, is responsible for everything in our lives, the best and the worst. Every thought we think is creating our future. Each one of us creates our experiences by our thoughts and our feelings. The thoughts we think and the words we speak create our experiences.

This book is all about using your thoughts to fix the problems in your life. What kind of problems? Well, the book looks into healing life areas such as relationships, work, success, prosperity, and your body. But wait a minute, did I say the book is using thoughts to heal your body? What's up with that? Is that even possible?...Well, after reading this book, I think in many cases, yes, it is possible. While I think it is the way to go to treat things such as an acute appendicitis with surgery, fractures with a cast, and pneumonia with antibiotics, there are many conditions where conventional medicine blatently falls short. Of course I'm talking about health problems such as migraines, backaches, or stomach ulcers- you know, those kinds of nagging disorders where we all know that stress/mental processes DO play a role. But while few would argue that psychological factors can cause an ulcer, what about more serious conditions such as, say, arthritis?...Well it may not be too far fetched. Consider this. One study of 1,198 subjects found that only 56% of men with SEVERE knee arthritis had any pain (Lawrence 1966). Another study X-rayed 84 seventy-nine year-olds and 76 eighty-five year-olds and found that only 43% of them with SEVERE knee arthritis had any pain complaints (Bagge 1991). There are plenty more examples in the scientific literature, but obviously there two alone show us that there is NO clear-cut association between severe knee arthritis and pain...ON THE OTHER HAND, when one looks at the relationship between psychological variables and knee arthritis, one does see a clear association. For instance, one study looked at 65 patients (ages 55 to 87) with hip and/or knee arthritis. X-rays, pain, depression levels, anxiety levels, coping styles, and functional impairment were all assessed. The findings? Researchers discovered that the severity of one's arthritis showed little relationship to pain, BUT, psychological variables were strong predictors of who had pain and how impaired they were (Summers 1988)...Along the same lines, Salaffi examined 61 women (ages 51-79) with knee arthritis. Here again, results showed that how disabled someone was, was more related to psychological variables than how bad their knee looked on an X-ray film. Interestingly, both anxiety and depression WERE important predictors of pain (Salaffi 1991). Anyone conducting a literature review on Medline will find more such examples IF you're looking for them. While I used knee arthritis as an example, there are MANY more studies on other health problems with similar findings...All of this should be causing us to raise an eyebrow. The literature is telling us that it is far from being clear cut that things like bad knee arthritis ALWAYS mean pain. And the research is also giving us clues that the mind definitely plays a role. So the question now becomes, if bad thought patterns can play a role in health problems such as arthritis, why not in other diseases such as cancer, as the book suggests?...You be the judge. I found that the main value in this book was getting me to look at how our thinking does influence the functioning of our bodies- as well as our life in general. Note I'm NOT saying that you can think yourself well all the time either. Remember that while Louise Hay did change her thought patterns and was cured of cancer, she has also written that she used other alternative treatments as well, such as foot reflexology and colon therapy (Chapter 16).

I first found this book when it was first published. I was relatively young back then and was struggling with depression, the loss of a parent, a gloomy career outlook, and an extremely low sense of self worth. This book gave me the sense of peace and hope that I was reaching for. Just this past January (2010), I repurchased this book looking for help with a whole different set of problems for a whole new time in my life (I'm well into my 40s now). I'd remembered it helped before -- but I couldn't remember why or how. Then I read this book again, and now I recall its utter beauty. Louise Hay is one of the wisest women on the planet. This book offers techniques that can truly heal whatever problem you're facing ... but you can't just treat it as a book. You must take the message to heart. When you do, amazing things happen in your life. You'll get a sense of peace ... a sense of hope ... a sense of happiness that's beyond what you think is even possible. This book is FAR better than pscyhotherapy I've ever participated in. It's truly one book that has changed my life.

Awesome Book!Disregard the ignorance of the 'one star' reader!This book is SIMPLE (why does that scare someone???)but you hve to agree to be open to another way of thinking - Information from higher planes consistently tell us that we 'agree' to our lives whether it be to wear glasses so you won't see the world in such a sharp way (I have worn glasses since I was 7 and couldn't agree more), that holding in regrets and hate absolutely can cause cancer and all other diseases, that holding positive thoughts CAN CURE them along with any other thing that isn't balanced in your life. Do yourself a favor, help to heal yourself. No it isn't magic, but it is easy and something every person was born with. If you're life isn't as good as you want it to be, follow the steps in this book and CHANGE it. No one else can!

Louise is the first lady of the healing arts and hers was one of the first book I ever saw on the subject. It totally changed the way I thought about healing and led to my writing my own book, some 12 years later. You Can Heal Your Life is a classic book, one that should be on every shelf. It contains methods of healing, affirmations, and the reasons why many of us become ill. You will learn how illness has an emotional connection and how by altering your life actions, you can also change your illness into a path of wellness. My favorite section is chapter 15, which contains 'the list.' In this newly revised version, the list of ailments and likely emotional connections is separated into colorful columns which make it easier to read. This version is beautifully decorated with pastel flowers, hearts, and other beautiful details. A great book to leave out on a table for others to browse. The 'turtle back' cover, which is strong like plastic, but soft to the touch like a paper cover, will survive years of wear and tear. Of course, the book contains many exercises and processes to help the reader better understand themselves and in the process, heal and revive not just their bodies, but their lives. My sincerest gratitude goes out to Louise and her work which has opened the door for so many of us to follow.

My sister gave me this book in Chinese in 2006. I did not read it until I was diagnosed with melanoma. During and after the medical treatment, it helps me through the critical time. Last month, both my surgical and medical oncologist had announce me I am 100% cured. Thanks to Louis Hay. She helped me transformed from a bitter, battered woman, to a happy, loving person.

If you relate to the saying 'I am my own worst enemy' then this is a good book for you to read. The affirmations that Louise suggests really can help you to change the way you talk to yourself...thereby changing your outlook on life. The idea that you can become responsible for your life and what happens to you is very important. I do believe this can be taken too far in suggesting that you bring EVERYTHING on yourself...that nothing is an accident, but if you read this with an open mind and choose to change how you think...thinking about yourself in a more accepting fashion you can become a more satisfied person and achieve more than you ever expected in your life.

I think this book is an excellent piece for self growth that I have got it for my 2 dear friends whom I am sure will appreciate it. As I am going through a difficult time from a broken marriage it has made me a stronger person with positive thoughts and energy. I found answers and I have eliminated the bitterness I was carrying within me and forgiven the people who had caused me pain.

Everyone in the Universe should read this. I keep it handy for just picking up & reading a page or two. I read this at a time when I was very sad. My long term relationship had ended. Reading You Can Heal Your Life was the very beginning of my seeing things differently. You can too!

If you are a believer in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost/Spirit this book may make you feel uncomfortable. Louise L. Hay offers advice that you may have read or heard else where, some of it explains the importance of forgiving others as well as yourself to allow dis-ease to leave your body; the importance of controlling your thought life, and "unlearning" some childhood information that could be keeping you from being physically, mentally, and emotionally well. Some of the positive affirmations should assist the reader to begin to "heal" from past dis-ease and work toward a more positive future with less dis-ease. Be careful, as the reader, you may need to be cautious about what you are reading and the changes you make based on the advice given in this book.

So very interesting. Easy reading. Simple methodical rules. You can heal your life at least enough to think about doing so if you read this book.

I read your review and felt like i wrote it! I can't believe that the stories are the same. Anyway, I'm purchasing this book again because as you stated it helped me before as a young woman and I, too, am well into my 40's and know I will benefit greatly from it.

This book hands back control to the individual, something that I believe is critical in terms of healing and other activities in a person's life.
