I have wanted to see the movie “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay for about a year now. At least that is how long it seems. When the movie first came out, a friend was given a copy and she promised to let me borrow it. And then she missplaced it.
As I was trying to figure out what to get my father for Christmas, I remembered that I had wanted to see this movie. My dad is also into positive thinking and I felt he would enjoy the movie, so I got him a copy as a Christmas present. Turned out that he already had a copy. So, he let me keep it 🙂 I love it when things work out!
This morning, I had a rough time and I opted to skip my workout and stay home. Plus it’s snowing yet again and I didn’t feel like driving in the snow. Truth be told, I was feeling awfully bad about my behavior and basically felt like crap. I started straightening up my living room and was cleaning up all my kids movies when I spotted this dvd. I put everything down and immediately put it on.
The movie is 90 minutes long. It’s about Louise Hay’s life and how she came to publish her book on healing yourself by changing your thoughts. Louise Hay speaks and they also feature other well known people, such as Doreen Virtue and Wayne Dyer. Some parts made me laugh, like when they show Louise Hay pruning her roses…..and she is wearing this silk top. Or when someone says “My dad is no Wayne Dyer” That made me laugh out loud!!!
But nevertheless, this is one powerful movie. It was exactly what I needed to see and hear this morning. I really liked the part towards the end when they talk about taking ACTION. I feel like some people, especially since The Secret was on Oprah and all over the place, misinterpret the Law of Attraction. Some people believe all you have to do is think positive thoughts and your wishes will come true. I believe that can happen some times but most of us are not that enlightened to have that experience. The speakers in the movie stress the importance of taking action by listening/following your gut, intuition or whatever signs that may come your way, in order to make your dreams become reality.
I am probably not explaining what the movie is all about very well. But it did give me an increased sense of hope. And the world certainly needs as many people feeling positive and hopeful these days!
