We will be sharing book/movie recommendations from both our students and staff to inspire and help you go deeper in your spiritual journey…
This week, Daphne, our first year Tantra student from France shares her book recommendation with us – ‘You can heal your life’ by Louise Hay
📚 Why do you recommend this book?
It very simply explains a way of thinking that can be transformational to develop self-love and raise your expectations in life. It is a supportive companion for those working on freeing themselves from resentment / guilt / self-criticism. Short chapters, meditations and exercises help to integrate Louise’s ideas.
In the last part of the book, Louise tells us about her personal story and her suffering. She writes about what brought her to her philosophy and how she has been applying it to her own life. I find her genuine in her desire to share her message. I also loved hearing the warmth of her voice on different materials uploaded on Youtube.
📚 Who is this book for?
Anyone who wants to develop more self-care, self-love and faith in themselves / the Universe.
📚 Book blurb:
If you can change your thinking, you can change your life. That is the central idea of this book, a classic ‘self-help’ book written in 1984 by motivational author Louise Hay.
According to Louise, what we get from the Universe reflects the thoughts we believe about ourselves and about life. In other words, our thoughts create our experiences. This is empowering because we can create the very thoughts that will bring about the change we want to see in our life.
It starts with awareness of our negative thought patterns, which Louise argues always stem from a lack of self-love. Louise guides her readers through exercises to release self-limiting beliefs and to help us to forgive the past. As we ‘clean our mental house’, she encourages us to form new thoughts and beliefs by practising daily affirmations. She generally invites us to bring more love in all areas of our life (relationships, work, money…).
Louise’s message is really one of love: for ourselves, others and the Universe that ‘flows through us’. In that sense, it echoes some ideas from the Tantric path.
