11 Life-Changing Louise Hay Affirmations: You CAN Heal Your Life
You should be the one telling yourself the things you need to hear. In honor of the queen of positive self-talk, here are some Louise Hay affirmations to help you heal and feel and live the way *you* want to. Your whole life will be living, breathing proof of how powerful your mind is.
“You have the power to heal yourself, and you need to know that. We think so often that we are helpless, but we’re not. We always have the power of our minds. Claim and consciously use your power.” — Louise Hay
Louise’s book You Can Heal Your Life marked the beginning of my work on healing. Here are my favorite affirmations of hers, including my own thoughts to expand upon each, to inspire how you heal.
11 Louise Hay Affirmations, Because You Can Heal Your Life
1. "I do not fix problems. I fix my thinking. Then problems fix themselves."
I align my thinking with ease before I try to solve any problem. This ease dissolves the problem so that I can handle it with less stress and greater grace.
2. "I am in the process of positive change."
I’m in the process of whatever I want to change. I’m connected, right now, to whatever I want, because I’m on the path there.
3. "As I forgive myself, it becomes easier to forgive others."
How I give to others is a direct extension of how I give to myself. I open myself to the possibility of forgiveness as a way of serving the greater good.
“It's only a thought, and a thought can be changed.” — Louise Hay
4. "Nourishing myself is a joyful experience, and I am worth the time spent on my healing."
I am worthy of the time I spend on my healing. I am allowed to heal, to feel better, and to honor the pain without getting stuck there.
5. "Whatever I need to know is revealed to me at exactly the right time."
It's okay not to know the whole story yet. Life is always on time and I don't need to have all the answers to live freely in this moment. I am free to swim with the mystery of it all.
6. "I trust the process of life."
When I trust life, I am full of life.
7. "I listen with love to my body’s messages."
My body responds to the way I treat it, speak to it, and think of it. I nourish my body with healthy food and helpful thoughts. I speak to it like a friend, and so it is a friend.
8. "I am constantly discovering new ways to improve my health."
I am open to new solutions and ways to heal. I have an open heart and an open mind. I'm willing to see what I wasn't willing to see before. I'm willing to try new things and ask for help and give myself the grace of patience as I explore.
9. "I forgive myself for not being perfect."
I am free to be who I am, to rediscover my potential, to find purpose, to explore ways I can improve my life... all from a place of "already enough," "already whole," "already worthy."
10. "I am willing to change."
I choose to believe that all is well, all in due time. I don't need to force or rush anything. I can create space deep in my belly right now. I can make room for change to happen through me, naturally.
11. "I act as if I already have what I want — it’s an excellent way to attract happiness in my life."
I think about what I love, so much that I have no room for anything less than love.
