Practical, Easy to Use, Everything You Need to Start Loving Yourself!
It’s about creating a real connection with yourself. When was the last time that you really looked at your own face and didn’t criticize it or praise it only for superficial purposes? You may find it easy or hard to say, “I love you” to yourself. Emotions may come to the surface that surprise you. You may write a lot or a little in your journal or device. And meditation may be something you do or avoid, but the daily meditations included are short enough to be squeezed into even the busiest of days. Starting off your day with “Mirror Work”, finding moments throughout to check in with yourself, and ending your day with it might make a difference in your life.
Daily themes, journaling exercises, affirmations, and looking yourself boldly in the eye, facing those inner challenges to loving yourself unconditionally has been combined in a format that is easy to use and follow. Even my inner, eye rolling, skeptic felt hopeful. This is an exercise book without the wordy self-help book to introduce the exercises. I liked that a lot because it either works or it doesn’t. I don’t need to be convinced, just to do it for myself.
21 days, a mirror, and journal and pen or a device and you could be loving yourself and healing things that have been challenges. That’s all that is needed along with this book to do inner work to change your outer reality. Sounds too good to be true or too simple to work. Well, there is only one way to find out: try it for yourself.
I have read a number of Louise Hay books, including Heal Your Life. I wasn’t sure if anything “new to me” would be in this book. It’s not that there is anything new per se, but that it is presented in a different way. I skimmed it at first. But as I sat to write the review, I began to read it and do the exercises. This is a keeper!
If you have never read any self-help books, have read many, or are just looking for a supplement to the ones you are reading, this could be the one that you did not know that you were missing. There is also bonus content offered in the form of the audio version of the daily meditation read by the author. I found her voice to be soothing and a very good addition to the book.
Note: I received a review copy from NetGalley. This is my honest review. After reading it, I 1-clicked and bought my own copy.
Have you read any books by Louise Hay? Are you interested in reading this one? I’d recommend checking her large library of books and other formats for self-help as well as Hay House titles.
