I recently perused what I was publishing on social media three to four years ago. The vast majority of posts were affirmations. At that time, I was making multiple passes through a teaching called “The Abundance Book” by John Randolph Price.

The author recommends that the reader do a forty-day exercise to reprogram the mind regarding prosperity. I did it for eighty days without fail and saw excellent results.

After I finished the eighty-day exercise, I continued writing affirmations for myself each morning during study time. I would then share some of those affirmations with the handful of folks that followed me on social networks way back then.

I estimate that eighty percent or more of what I was affirming either found satisfactory resolution or changed in such a way that it was no longer an issue. The process really worked well.

I got what I wanted in time, and I stopped the affirmation practice. It changed my thinking patterns, and afterward, I went about my business, as usual, living life without an ongoing, negative soundtrack in my head. I thought good things about John every day regardless of what was happening in my environment. I figured I didn’t need the practice anymore.

However, over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed that I’ve been immediately critical of myself in my mind when any adverse situation arises. I intentionally made some time to sit down and discover where and how I exchanged my upbeat soundtrack for a shitty one.

I do my best to live life with a completely open soul. I attempt to take everything to my heart and bypass my rational mind. It gets broken a lot. However, when my heart breaks and heals, it’s much stronger afterward, able to return more love in exchange for pain. So I let it break, and Maharaj-ji gives me agape in return that I can share with others.

In my contemplation and reflection, I discovered that many months ago, a few people I love and care about deeply said some negative things about me out of their own pain, and I believed them. I let poisonous lies into my heart.

Once I accepted what they said, I started repeating negative phrases on occasion in my mind that reinforced the untruths they passed me. Recently I observed myself quoting those adverse ideas in my head like the gospel multiple times a day.

I went to my bookshelf and pulled out journals to read all the positive things I’d written about John just a few years back. It helped a little, but I needed something more.

I reached for a tool that, in my opinion, is the best process I’ve ever found to free oneself from emotional baggage. It’s Louise Hay’s book, “You Can Heal Your Life.” I read it through last week, and I’m rereading it this week more slowly, doing the exercises, and reestablishing my positive thought patterns. I started a new affirmation journal specifically to write positive things about me and the situations I wish to manifest.

I penned this essay expressly to recommend this book to those with ears to hear. I’ve never met anyone who didn’t have to deal with negative self-talk. It’s something with which we all struggle. I’ve used the wisdom from “You Can Heal Your Life” for three decades now and found it easy to apply, accurate, and effective. If you change your thoughts for the better, your reality will follow without a doubt.

Yes, the book is definitely about using affirmations and doing mirror work. However, its’ most enlightening content explains how our diseases and physical infirmities connect to our emotional condition. From Louise Hay’s decades of working with folks, she documented hundreds of different bodily conditions related to emotions –

Here are a few examples –

Back Problems: — Lower: Fear of money. Lack of financial support. Middle: Guilt. Stuck in all that stuff back there. “Get off my back.” Upper: Lack of emotional support. Feeling unloved. Holding back love.

Cancer: Deep hurt. Longstanding resentment. Deep secret or grief eating away at the self. Carrying hatreds. “What’s the use?”

Ear(s): Represents the capacity to hear.

Fat: Fear, need for protection. Running away from feelings. Insecurity, self-rejection. Seeking fulfillment.

Leg Problems: — Lower Fear of the future. Not wanting to move.

Pimples: Small outbursts of anger.

Since I was first taught this information nearly thirty years ago, I’ve observed myself and others to see if it was factual. Louise Hay said in her experience the information was accurate ninety-five percent of the time. In my own life, I’ve found it to be true always.

If I’m physically suffering today, it started with negative emotions (self-talk) in my head long ago. When I repair those thought patterns, the physical conditions resolve themselves.

One of the best things about the work is that Louise puts her personal story at the very end. After she tells you about her patients, methods, and cures, she relates what she healed in her own life using this process. It’s simply staggering.

It works if you do it.

No matter what you are going through at this moment, the best practice you can start to find resolution is loving and cherishing yourself dearly. This book gives super clear instructions on how to accomplish that very thing.

If you’ve read this far, this message was likely for you. Buy the book and do what it says. Even a little effort with this information can make a massive difference in your future.

I pray you adore you more now than ever. Please send the same intentions back my way as we heal together.


Ram Ram!

In Christ,


P.S. Truthfully, I didn’t feel like writing today, but Maharaj-ji insisted. He said, “It has to be right now.” Sometimes I look in His face, and my heart melts. He always gets what He wants.

P.S.S. After writing this, someone shared with me this short, 18min film documenting Louise Hay’s work during the AIDS crisis – https://mattwolf.info/Another-Hayride. It’s very good.
