Looking for inspirational quotes by Louise L. Hay?

You’re in the right place. 

First, who is Louise Hay?

Louise L. Hay is a motivational speaker and an American New Thought self-help author. 

Ms. Hay believed that diseases start metaphysically and that a person could heal their mind and body through the power of affirmation and positive thinking. 

And her philosophy remains that the key to well-being and wholeness lies in appreciating oneself, forgiveness, compassion, and self-love.

In the late 1970s, her philosophy was tested when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. She used a combination of affirmations, visualization, nutrition, and psychotherapy, and six months later, she cured herself of cancer. 

Her philosophy is very similar to Eastern medicine, like Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine, where doctors seek to heal the whole person—mind, body, and spirit.   

She has helped countless people over the years, teaching people about mind, body, and spirit and how to heal their lives and bodies.
