Queen of the New Age
October 8, 1926 - August 30, 2017
ON August 31, 2017, the daily affirmation published Louise Hay's website read:
"I am surround by love. All is well."
The elegant, gentle woman who ushered millions of people around the globe into the world of positive thinking passed away this week, aged 90.
Louise Hay, always pictured with a wide smile on her face, revealed her painful early life, including childhood sexual abuse, giving up a child for adoption, a divorce and cancer, through books that also held the message of holistic healing.
After years spent in self-discovery, she published You Can Heal Your Life (1984) it sold more than 50 million copies worldwide and continues to sell. The book's alphabetical chart of physical illness, which included probable causes, and healing affirmations, offered a new way of thinking, generally for an age-group, who been brought up on a diet of Beatles or Bob Dylan and were accustomed to introduction of new social moors.
If you think Louise Hay, you automatically think affirmations. Look into the mirror every morning, she told us and says these words - "I Love You" Louise Hay had taught herself about self-love and enjoyed the results so much that she spent her whole life teaching other people how to love themselves. In one way or another, she thought that all pain and illness could be sourced from this point of reference.
Love is the most powerful stimulant to the immune system," she said at one gathering in 1988, the L.A. Times reported. "What we're doing here is practicing love, unconditional love."
In 1987 she started her publishing business Hay House, according to publishers it grossed $100 million in 2007, by 2008 a New York Times profile called her 'The Queen of the New Age".
