Initially I was struck at the number of incredibly strong and amazing women who have been teachers and mentors in my life and suddenly felt incredibly blessed and grateful!

Part 1: Louise L. Hay
Who is Louise L. Hay? Louise is the author of the international bestseller You Can Heal Your Life. Her first book, Heal Your Body, was published in 1976, long before it was fashionable to discuss the connection between the mind and body. For more than 30 years, Louise has helped people throughout the world discover and implement the full potential of their own creative powers for personal growth and self-healing. (details cited from www.LouiseHay.com)
Louise first came into my life in the form of a little Self Help audio cassette that I listened to each night before going to sleep. That wonderful little Self Esteem audio was designed to speak to me on a conscious as well as subconscious level. By simply repeating the positive affirmations, (aloud as well as quietly to myself) my battered & bruised Self Esteem began to heal and I began to feel good about myself. Such a simple, yet very powerful method!
I faithfully listened to that little cassette for close to 12 months and still draw strength from it when I hear those affirmations 15+ years later!
As you'll read in my 'About Val' page, I picked up a copy of Louise Hay’s book "You Can Heal Your Life", at a time when my network marketing business was experiencing a financial 'nose-dive'. At the time I'd hit an all time low emotionally and financially I was close to rock bottom having made some unwise business decisions. (what is it they say about hindsight?!)
As I worked through each chapter, I felt as though a huge weight was being lifted! I was learning and putting into practise the methods covered in Louise's book. I learnt about forgiveness. I learnt how to 'approve' of myself. I learnt about being willing to change. And on a daily basis, I witnessed wonderful, positive changes within myself. Wonderful "ah-haa" moments were happening for me. And other people noticed the changes!
The catalyst really came when I attended a Heal Your Life® Workshop.
I'd always had a passion for helping others, and through my own positive results, I felt strongly drawn to teaching and sharing Louise's Heal Your Life® philosophies.
Details of how you can participate in a life-changing Heal your Life® Workshop can be found on our Bookings page, alternatively please feel free to search via the Heal Your Life Workshops webpage.
The next instalment in this series will be Positive People in My Life - Part 2 - Lisa Curry
