In 2003 my entire life changed when a book found its way to me. It changed my life, literally. ‘You can heal your life’ by Louise Hay is still a book I turn to today for guidance and inspiration. I have gifted it to many clients and friends. If you have not read it, do yourself a favour and get a copy.
Because of this book I pursued Kinesiology 16 years ago. It is the one modality that powerfully combines Mind Body balance by connecting with the body as the messenger. The universe has a way of sending you what you need right on time when you need it.
I was at the time living in Johannesburg, a national sales manager for a few online and print brands with a staff compliment of around 15. I was financially responsible for a parent and dealing with quite a bit of stress and unresolved trauma from my upbringing.
During this same time, while vacationing in Knysna, I was also led to a kinesiologist called Jaqi Lee who was practising kinesiology in Knysna and I was blown away with the two sessions I experienced with her. I was suffering from debilitating back and neck pain and she was able to tune into my body and release stress around relationship issues between me and my mother. Needless to say, the pain went away. 😊
Below is just a small insert from Louis’s book “Heal your body”. May this information help you. Maybe you can relate to some of the information.
“I’ve learned that there are really just two mental patterns that contribute to dis-ease: fear and anger. Anger can show up as impatience, irritation, frustration, criticism, resentment, jealousy, or bitterness. These are all thoughts that poison the body. When we release this burden, all the organs in our body begin to function properly. Fear could be tension, anxiety, nervousness, worry, doubt, insecurity, feeling not good enough, or unworthiness. Do you relate to any of this stuff? We must learn to substitute faith for fear if we are to heal.
Faith in what? Faith in life. I believe that we live in a “Yes” Universe. No matter what we choose to believe or think, the Universe always says yes to us. If we think poverty, the Universe says yes to that. If we think prosperity, the Universe says yes to that. So, we want to think and believe that we have the right to be healthy, that health is natural to us. The Universe will support and say yes to this belief. Be a “Yes person and know that you live in a “Yes” world, being responded to by a “Yes” Universe.
If you find yourself battling with some imbalance, ask yourself: Is it one of the forms of fear, or is it one of the forms of anger? Are you willing to release those thoughts? Are you willing to replace those thoughts with positive affirmations?* Loving yourself will also contribute greatly to healing your body, for love heals.
So how do you love yourself? First, and most important: Cease all criticism of yourself and others. Accept yourself as you are. Praise yourself as much as you can. Criticism breaks down the inner spirit; praise builds it up. Look into a mirror often, and simply say: I LOVE YOU, I REALLY LOVE YOU. It may be difficult at first, but keep practicing, and soon you will mean and feel what you say. Love yourself as much as you can, and all of life will mirror this love back to you.” Louise Hay.
