I picked this book at Shubha's place. I have always wanted to read Louise Hay's work, understand about positive affirmations and the way our body works. Harry once gifted me a set of cards with affirmations. Shobha mam has helped me to understand the power of affirmations and how to work with them. I was positive to receive some food for thought from this book.
This books is full of affirmations that can help us change the mental patterns and change our life. I observed the change in my mental patterns when I got my first smart phone in 2016. I attributed the change to the smart phone and observed how my way of thinking has clearly shifted along with the frequency of changes.
Sometimes we're always supsecting of simple and easy ways of life. We wish to create a convoluted path for happines, prosperity, love and a lot more in our life. Change your thoughts and change your life is the basic element of this book.
Thoughts indeed work. My body reacts differntly when I say out few affirmations. I could experience how my limiting beliefs are affecting my life. I'm glad I picked this book. It's time to put things in practice.
A few main takeaways for me from this book as of now are-
Willing to forgive ourselves and others.
Avoiding the word 'should' in life
Stop being critical of our selves
Willing to understand parents and their behaviour
Loving the Self
Every chapter of the book begins with an affirmation-
"It is safe to look within."
"The Past has no power over me."
"Truth is unchangeable part of me."
"I see my patterns and I choose to make changes."
"I am in the rhthym and flow of ever changing life."
"I cross bridges with joy and with ease."
"The answers within me come to my awareness with ease."
"I enjoy practicing my new mental skills."
"All my relationships are harmonious."
"I am deeply fulfilled by all that i do."
"Every experience is a success."
"I deserve the best and I accept the best now."
"I listen with love to my body's messages."
"I am healthy, whole and complete."
At the end there's a list of diseases, associated with mental patterns and affirmations to bring the ease. Very helpful list.
One book, I'd suggest to check whoever is willing to understand holistic health.
