Pinnable Louise Hay Quote #1

“Which of these statements sounds like you?

  • People are out to get me.
  • Everyone is always helpful.

Each one of these beliefs will create quite different experiences. What we believe about ourselves and about life becomes true for us.”

“Your power is always in the present moment.”

“It is our natural birthright to go from success to success all our life. If we are not doing that, either we are not in tune with our innate capabilities, or we do not believe it can be true for us, or we do not recognize our successes.”

“You are the only person who thinks in your mind! You are the power and authority in your world.”

“Taking a stand and setting healthy boundaries is often the most loving thing you can do—not only for yourself, but for the other person as well.”

Louise Hay Quotes on Healing

“You have the power to heal your life, and you need to know that. We think so often that we are helpless, but we’re not. We always have the power of our minds.”

““Every time you meditate, every time you do visualization for healing, every time you say something for healing the whole planet, you are connecting with like-minded people all over the planet who are doing the same thing.”

“Awareness is the first step in healing or changing. If you think of the hardest thing for you to do and how much you resist it, then you’re looking at your greatest lesson at the moment.”

Pinnable Louise Hay Quote #2

“Cluttered closets mean a cluttered mind. As you clean the closet, say to yourself, ‘I am cleaning out the closets of my mind,’ The Universe loves symbolic gestures.”

“There is so much love in your heart that you could heal the entire planet. But just for now let us use this love to heal you. Feel a warmth beginning to glow in your heart center, a softness, a gentleness. Let this feeling begin to change the way you think and talk about yourself.”

“Love is the greatest healing power I know. Love can heal even the deepest and most painful memories because love brings the light of understanding to the darkest corners of our hearts and minds.”

“If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed.”

Louise Hay Quotes on Forgiveness

“I forgive you for not being the way I wanted you to be. I forgive you and I set you free.”

“How foolish for us to PUNISH OURSELVES in the present moment because someone hurt us in the long-ago past. I often say to people who have deep resentment patterns: please begin to dissolve the resentment now, when it is relatively easy. Don’t wait until you are under the threat of a surgeon’s knife or on your death bed when you may have to deal with panic, too.”

“We may not know how to forgive, and we many not want to forgive; but the very fact we say we are willing to forgive begins the healing practice.”

“Forgiveness is for yourself because it frees you. It lets you out of that prison you put yourself in.”

Pinnable Louise Hay Quote #3

“If you want to understand your parents more, get them to talk about their own childhood; and if you listen with compassion, you will learn where their fears and rigid patterns come from. Those people who “did all that stuff to you” were just as frightened and scared as you are.”

“Whenever we are ill, we need to search our hearts to see who it is we need to forgive. The Course in Miracles says that “all disease comes from a state of unforgiveness,” and that “whenever we are ill, we need to look around to see who it is that we need to forgive.”

Louise Hay Quotes on Self Love

“Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.”

“We must be willing to begin to learn to love ourselves.”

“Self-approval and self-acceptance in the now are the keys to positive changes.”

“If your mother did not know how to love herself, or your father did not know how to love himself, then it would be impossible for them to teach you to love yourself.”

“Love comes when we least expect it, when we are not looking for it. Hunting for love never brings the right partner. It only creates longing and unhappiness. Love is never outside ourselves; love is within us.”

“People who love themselves and their bodies neither abuse themselves nor others.”

“When we really love ourselves, everything in our life works.”

Pinnable Louise Hay Quote #4

“Love who and what you are and what you do. Laugh at yourself and at life, and nothing can touch you. It’s all temporary anyway. Next lifetime you will do it differently anyway, so why not do it differently right now?”

“No matter what the problem, the main issue to work on is loving the self. This is the magic wand that dissolves problems.”

“When we expand our thinking and beliefs our love flows freely. When we contract we shut ourselves off. Can you remember the last time when you were in love? Your heart went ahhh!! Such a wonderful feeling. It is the same with loving yourself except that you will never leave once you have your love for yourself. It’s with you for the rest of your life, so you want to make it the best relationship that you can have.”
