I knew this day would be coming and I can’t say that it made it any easier. Today, we lost a true Earth angel as she passed away of natural causes. I really didn’t think I would be as emotional as I am about it but she really changed my life. Louise Hay meant the world to me. If you are reading this and know who Louise Hay is, then you were probably touched and moved by her messages as much as I was in my life. She really helped me, along with so many others, when I was going through one of the hardest times in my life. It was such a blessing how all of it came together. I had received a deck of Louise Hay cards in a package from the school I was attending and although I thought they were pretty, I never really looked at them much. Within the year, my boyfriend had a book of Louise Hay and I recognized it by the artwork. It was then that I decided to look at my affirmation cards. From there, my life just became filled with the work of Louise Hay and other authors of Hay House. There was one really low point in my life when I had been having such unbelievable stress and panic attacks and I actually ended up in the hospital one night. I remember driving back from the place I was visiting to my home and finding a disc read by Louise Hay and putting it in the CD player. It changed my life! I never thought the same way again and she helped me in my journey and recovery from the traumas that I had experienced in my life. I woke up every morning and listened to that same disc, just like she suggested, and I felt my whole life change. I would take her affirmation cards and sit on my balcony of my old apartment and read them over and over and meditate with them. Over the years, I have listened to her, watched her, read her books and followed her blogs and she continues to be an inspiration to me. I really did feel like I knew her and it does make me sad to think that, in this life, I will never get to meet her in physical form. She use to travel and give speeches and lectures and I always dreamed of seeing her and meeting her one day. I still pray to be a published Hay House Author and have my cookbooks with her publishing company. Just like when Wayne Dyer passed a couple of years ago, I feel a huge sense of loss as if a family member passed away. When you have a mentor in your life, and they pass one, it can feel somewhat lonely and scary because you always looked up to this person like you would a parent. So, there is a bit of fear that can come with the loss of a personality that is so well known and holds so strongly to your faith. It can be scary because you may get you thinking about your own mortality or you feel like you don’t have anyone to learn from anymore. Louise has left such an enormous legacy and there are so many other wonderful teachers out there to learn about, which is what she wanted, and it takes acceptance and understanding in her passing to open up to other teachers. When Wayne Dyer passed away, I continued to listen to him as if he were still on this Earth in his honor. I knew that Louise was getting older and I knew this would happen one day and I wondered how I would feel about it. Maybe at the beginning of my journey, almost 10 years ago, I would have felt lost without Louise. Since I have grown so much on my own, I can take the blessings that Louise has brought to all of us and continue my journey, accept new teachers that come forth to spread the good word, maybe teach others and honor her everyday by loving myself. If you have not heard of Louise Hay please look into her books, audiobooks, youtube videos, affirmation cards, and the many other wonderful teachings she has left for all of us to experience and enjoy! I have been planning on listening to her for my upcoming plane travel. You are all a blessing and you all have something to offer to this world. Please share with me how Louise has changed your life in the comments!
Louise Hay founded Hay House Publishing, where you can find all of her wonderful books, gifts, audiobooks and other authors.
