I’m back! So I’ve been to a Wisdom of Your Face retreat for 5 days and it was truly transformational. I have to tell everyone in the new age community who loves learning about new models of thought, check this out. You may have not seen anything like this. Louise Hay and the author of The Wisdom of Your Face, Jean Haner are collaborating on a book together. Louise Hay, herself, has said this is the most fascinating material she has come across in the last 10 or 15 years. Pretty amazing stuff, if it’s impressing Louise Hay.
Now for the big news. This retreat took place in a mountain lodge up in the majestic Cascade mountains of Washington state. There were less than two dozen of us and guess who was there? OMG!! Louise Hay! I was so starstruck and I even told her so, among other things. Her gracious reply to me was, “I’m just a person”. Yes, just a person who happens to be one of the forerunners in the new age community for the late 20th century. Just a person who is the mother of affirmations. Just a person who has influenced, inspired and motivated millions of people. Wow!
I have some notes from Louise for all of you that are appended below. I agree with Louise (look, I’m already on a first name basis with her :), this is the most exciting material I’ve recently come across. It’s the next modality I will be studying. I won’t be able to share much from it right now because it is highly specialized. However, if there is anyone who can distill and simplify material and make it user friendly, it’s me. If you would like to get a taste of what the material is about, visit the website link above and consider signing up for the newsletter. I believe she adds celebrity face readings to those.
First I’d like to blend two ideas, one from Louise the other from Jean the author. Louise talked about living a life of making decisions. She is 83, she began this decade deciding that her 80s would be the best decade of her life. She looks and acts as if she is living it. So the power is in the decision, simple and clear. What Jean adds to this is the idea of making tiny decisions or tiny changes incrementally that add up to an eventual tipping point.
Let’s use an example: you feel stuck in your life, want new things to flow in. Consider making a tiny decision to clear out a drawer or the top of a closet. Next week or every other week clear out a little more clutter. When we release things we no longer need, it frees up space to bring new energy into our life. That’s just one example, apply this to anything you want to enhance or change in your life. Do you love being around people but find yourself stuck indoors a lot, perhaps you even isolate yourself. Go downtown or into town, where there are people around, make eye contact with them, pick up some friendly conversation with the store clerk, for instance. Is your life busy, busy, busy, constantly on the go? Are you exhausted as a result? What tiny thing can you do to replenish yourself? Could you go to bed 30 minutes earlier? Could you knock off a few minutes on your workout routine just to sit and breathe mindfully? Tiny decisions, tiny changes, incrementally add up to a tipping point.
The notes I took from Louise Hay’s short talk:
Make decisions about how your life will unfold.
Do mirror work – say in the mirror every day, no matter how uncomfortable it feels at first: I love you. I really love you.
Affirmations: All is well. Only good lies before me.
What you put in your body in terms of choice of thoughts and choice of food determines the quality of your life.
When faced with a challenging situation, LH will say this 300x a day if necessary:
All is well.
Everything is working out for my highest good.
And out of this experience, only good will come.
I am safe.
She gave us a well being card with that last affirmation on it. I have it autographed! Goosebumps over here!
Those of you in Chicago and the West Coast are in for a treat because that’s where Jean Haner usually does her work. Check out the website, if she’s at a bookstore near you doing a face reading, go, go, go! I promise you if learning something new lights you up, you will not regret it.
