On the verge of a nervous breakdown 10 years ago, I was given a book by Louise Hay, ‘ The Power is Within You.’

This was my first experience of the powerful work of this incredible woman, and as a result of using Louise’s philosophies I have now completely turned my life around from not feeling good enough, being a people pleaser, seeking the approval of others, feeling like a failure to becoming a successful business woman, being nominated for awards and feeling passionate about helping other people to turn their lives round too.

Louise’s Background

Louise’s philosophy emerged as a result of a very challenging upbringing. Her background is one of poverty in early childhood and abuse throughout her teens. When Louise moved to New York City she became a successful model and married a prosperous businessman.

However when the marriage ended 14 years later, it was then her own healing journey began.  Louise started attending the Church of Religious Science and eventually became a minister in 1981. It was during this time that she compiled her first book, Heal Your Body – (the little blue book) – It details mental causes of physical illnesses and gives positive thoughts (affirmations) to assist in creating health.

When confronted with the challenge of being diagnosed with cancer, Louise used her own philosophies to heal herself. She used an intensive programme of affirmations, visualisations, nutritional cleansing and psychotherapy.

In 1985 she began her famous AIDS support group ‘The Hayride’ which grew into a weekly gathering of 800 people in an auditorium in West Hollywood.
