I’ve started to re read “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise L Hay. I read it a few years ago and have been using her affirmations on and off as I need them. I definitely needed them the other day.
Last Monday night I suddenly got a very strong headache based over my right eye. My eye was more watery than normal and hurt. I have a blocked tear duct in that eye, so I’m used to it watering, but this was like a thin stream down my cheek. I went to bed and hoped it would go away the next day. Well, the next day it was worse. I had conjunctivitis in my right eye. Pus was everywhere and it itched. I wear contact lenses, so getting any sort of eye infections is not good. Then I remembered the affirmations in “You Can Heal Your Life”.
Some of you might not believe me, but Hay’s affirmations have helped me in the past. I found the one for conjunctivitis and repeated it over and over and over again. I said it to myself. I sang it to myself. When my boys got too loud I shouted it to myself which caused great amusement. Whatever I did that day, I made sure that all I was thinking of was that particular affirmation. It worked.
By the time I woke up on Wednesday morning my eye was fine. There was no more pus and it wasn’t as watery as it had been. It was a little bit redder than the other eye, but didn’t itch any more. I was cured!
On Wednesday afternoon I remembered I had a dentist appointment the following day. I am petrified of dentists. Thirty years ago, after a major motorbike accident, I had to have a bridge put in. It took weeks of pain and I never want to go through that again. So every time I see a dentist I am scared they are going to tell me it has to be redone. I was also reasonably sure I would have to have a couple of fillings.
I thought of how the affirmations had worked for my eye and decided to try them for my teeth. I found the one for teeth problems and started repeating it over and over. I even fell asleep that night repeating it to myself.
The next day the dentist cleared me for any fillings and my bridge was fine. I have some gum problems, but they can be cured. I was so happy!
The more I read about how our minds work, the more I’m convinced we have the power to change our lives using our thoughts. Negative thoughts bring on negativity; positive thoughts can only change our lives to be even more wonderful than they are now. I highly recommend this book to everyone who might want to change or heal their lives.
