The Power is Within You by Louise Hay
Louise Says: 'There's a great deal of information in this book, but don't feel that you have to absorb it all at once. Certain ideas will leap out at you, so work with those concepts first. IF you can get just one good lesson out of this book and use it to improve the quality of your life, then you've made progress.
'I feel that an important thing to be aware of as you read is that the Power you may be seeking "out there" is also within you and readily available for you to use in positive ways. May this book reveal to you how very powerful you really are.' - Louise Hay.
'What has earned Louise Hay her immense and well-deserved popularity is her courage. Long before anyone else, she was brave enough to say that no dis-ease is insurmountable, given our infinite ability to replenish life from within. Medical science is beginning to corroborate her intuitions about the power of healing, which she splendidly sets out in this new book.' - Deepak Chopra, M.D., author of Ageless Body, Timeless Mind.

Ms Hay is exceptionally honest about her life, her troubles and weaknesses, which makes her all the more likeable – it is obvious by her writing style and choice of words that her priority is to help others. To quote a sentence from the foreword 'if you can get just one good idea out of this book and use it to improve the quality of your life, then I feel complete in writing it'.
I have learnt very much from reading 'The Power is within You', one thing that sticks out foremost in my mind are the positive affirmations – they made me aware of exactly how much I tended to think negatively about myself. I find just days after finishing the book that I am thinking more positively, this is making me feel much happier about myself, even the parts of me I am not particularly fond of, have been replaced by a sense of care rather than dislike.
There are meditations for Personal and Planetary Healing at the end of this book, don't worry if you have never meditated before, they are easy to understand yet effective in their 'healing'. My favourite meditation was the 'Your......more
