The first time I read Louise Hay’s “You Can Heal Your Life” I didn’t like it!
I disliked it intensely and quite vociferously for many years.
How could I dislike something which later became one of the cornerstones of my own “What Your Body Wants To Hear” work? Those of you who have followed my work or heard my interview “Your Body Is Not Your Enemy” on Soul Searching Radio know that I greatly value this hugely famous best seller nowadays. Many of my fellow therapists and friends refer to it as “the bible” and all my healing meditations are based on the theories found in it.
Let me explain my turnaround.
When I first read “You Can Heal Your Life” I was already working as an Emotional Freedom Technique practitioner. That led me to look for and clear the emotional traumas which always underlie a physical or emotional symptom or psychological block. We worked with the subconscious mind and the energy system to clear these completely and only then introduced positive statements or affirmations.
Many of the people who come to E.F.T. practitioners are already beaten down by feelings of failure. Some have even been abandoned by conventional medicine and come to us a last resort. So when I saw a book which told people to repeat a positive statement over and over and over and expect to get results without first addressing the underlying emotional causes of their problem, I saw it as an opportunity for these vulnerable people to fail yet again. That was why I disliked it!
However, the theory and probable emotional cause of physical symptoms listed in “You Can Heal Your Life” has always been spot on! I have never had a symptom or known anyone else to have a symptom for which the emotional explanation in that book has been incorrect. Never! Not once! I even had a friend who worked as a nurse in numerous hospitals who said the same. She’d never come across a patient who, upon getting to know them better, was not exhibiting symptoms which correlated perfectly with their emotional state. Never! Not once!
The main cause of my dislike for this book was the frustration of knowing that if it was combined with E.F.T. tapping or some other Meridian Energy Therapy it would be pure gold. And it is! I was delighted when Louise discovered and championed E.F.T. She too recognised the amazing healing power of putting her theory and E.F.T together.
My own “What Your Body Wants To Hear” series of healing meditations uses releasing statements, empowering questions then positive affirmations in sequence. Like “You Can Heal Your Life” it is made even more powerful by tapping along to the audios or scripts.
If you are new to the idea that your emotions create your physical pain it can feel very strange at first. Many people struggle against the idea that they have created their pain and that they can heal it. It can be a tough and sometimes lonely journey until you find your tribe. In the meantime “You Can Heal Your Life” can bring you a great deal of clarity, hope and support. It’s still sitting by my side all these years later.

“I said my first positive compliment towards myself and I truly meant it!!! Thumbs up!by Victoria Merula Proctor So I downloaded and on the first night, a great weight was lifted off of me. Two days later I purchase the self love package. Every time I listen to the relaxation or self love, I cry at some of the things. A week into this and I said my first positive compliment towards myself and I truly meant it!!! I even recommended to my fb group I run and they love it too!”

Our Powerful Healing Meditations On Handy Mobile App.s
If you have heard your Guardian Angel or Spirit Guide, or listened to any of the loving, inspirational messages from the wonderful, high level spirit guides all around us these days, you’ll know that their messages are full of infinite love, gentleness, endless understanding, compassion and limitless patience.
They are with us always, in all ways. They never judge us. We may have travelled the same path trying to reach a different destination, through many lifetimes. They never complain, criticise, belittle, or judge us. They travel with us. They are by our sides, loving us unconditionally with infinite patience, gentleness and love throughout all eternity.
How does that compare with the way we treat our bodies?
What if you are your body’s spirit guide?
Do you speak to your body the way our spirit guides speak to us?
Do you show your body infinite love, gentleness, patience, understanding and compassion? If you do, I applaud you.
Many of us, myself included, realise the power our emotions, words and thoughts have on our bodies and try to live accordingly. But even then, we can set up very subtle inner conflict that we are unaware of.
If you have ever said “how long will this healing take?”, you have actually disrespected your body’s healing process with your impatience. I know I am guilty of that one!
If you have ever said “I should be over this by now!”, you are disrespecting your body’s healing process.
If you have ever said “I should have let this go by now!”, you are disrespecting your body’s healing process.
These may be very subtle, but they are judgements and they set up inner conflict.
If you were your body’s spirit guide would you speak to your body the way you do?
You are the spark of divine consciousness that heals your body. Not with force, judgement, shame, guilt or belittlement. But with infinite love, gentleness, patience, understanding and compassion.
I created the What Your Body Wants To Hearmeditation series to help people learn to treat their bodies with more compassion, gentleness, love and understanding. This approach has helped many people change their perceptions, ease or even eradicate pain and accelerate healing.
It is time now to take this to an even deeper level. To become aware of when we set up subtle inner conflict by trying to bully, push or manipulate healing. To start respecting the fact that physical healing has to happen on our body’s terms. To treat our bodies as our beloved spirit guides and angels treat us, with love, gentleness, patience, understanding and compassion.
Containing five full-length self-help guided meditations and a FREE E-book, Healing the Heart of the Empath will help your heart recover from old wounds, restore your shattered self-esteem and remind you that your energy is making a profound difference on the planet and that you are truly needed here. Your loving heart, energy, presence, understanding, wisdom and compassion are truly wanted and needed on the planet.

Affirmations To Ease The Emotional Aspects of Fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia, M.E., Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, seem to be symptomatic of the modern age. They are dis♥eases which have developed in response to the ever increasing pressure to succeed, to fit in, to be “good enough”. Fear of failure and/or lack of self-love contribute to the emotional exhaustion and physical pain. Unconscious emotional pain is expressed through our bodies as dis♥ease.
Some of the emotions often implicated in this type of dis♥ease are:- Feeling totally alone. Feelings of desolation, despair, hopelessness. Tired of trying to prove yourself. Low self worth. Lost the will to live. Pressure to succeed. Lost dreams/aspirations. Feeling not good enough. Keep pushing oneself or giving up. Finding it difficult to ask for help. Hard to cope alone, resistance to looking after oneself. Unfair, effort, fear of failure, lack of self love. Immersed in own problems. “poor me” syndrome. Fear of being lost , unnoticed, unrecognised. Being influenced by others too much. Not following your hearts desires, feeling trapped & empty. Alienation from ourselves. Disconnection from who we truly are. Disconnection from inner spirit or true self. Lack of motivation & direction. Exhaustion takes over. Feel like giving up. Feel like hiding. Sheltering from the storm of life. Excuse not to participate. Inner exhaustion. Fear of responsibility. Fear of failure. Inability to protect ourselves, cry for attention. Not feeling safe. Vulnerable and unsupported. Trauma, shock, grief, guilt, shame, blame. Struggle to find relief. Loneliness & isolation.

Barbara Clark’s Beyond Affirmations
By celoraelorca from United Kingdom about Beyond Affirmations – Guided Meditations (version 1.3, Apple App Store) on Apr 29, 2014
I love this series of apps. Barbara’s charming voice, both comforting and reassuring, gently guides the listener through a unique and powerful healing using her three-part affirmation sequence, comprising releasing statements, empowering questions and positive healing affirmations. The background music by Thaddeus is restful and perfectly complements Barbara’s voice. Each app concentrates on a specific emotional issue/part of the body, making them ideal for each person’s individual healing. I am finding Barbara’s affirmations life-enhancing. Using them daily I certainly feel I am shifting ‘stuck stuff’ and helping to restore a healthy energy flow. A high-quality recording which is very easy to use. A brilliant feature is that the volume control can be changed independently for the voice and music. Highly recommended. Yes!Yes!Yes!

The meditations are fantastic 🙂 you can adjust the music and voice loudness to your liking. The first two meditations are free. The rest are only 6 dollars download but well worth it. I use them daily and my health and finances are much better. If you love affirmations and relaxing music, these meditations are the best I have found. Give them a go!
