Thoughts on self-love and self-respect

Dear all,

I would like to share with you the following beautiful poem written by Louise Hay who wrote two of the biggest bestsellers ever, mentioning the connection between physical illness and negative thought patterns.  In all her books she talked about the most important ingredient of a happy, joyful, fulfilled and healthy life which is self-love and self-respect. 


‘’Loving treatment

Deep at the center of my being, there is an infinite well of love.

 I now allow this love to flow to the surface. 

It fills my heart, my body, my mind, my consciousness, my very being and radiates out from me in all direction and return to me multiplied. 

The more love I use and give, the more I have to give; the supply is endless. 

The use of love makes me feel good. It is an expression of my inner joy. I love myself; therefore I take loving care of my body. I lovingly feed it nourishing food and beverages. I lovingly groom it and dress it and my body lovingly responds to me with vibrant health and energy.

I love myself, therefore I provide a comfortable home for myself, one that fills all my needs and is a pleasure to be in. I fill the rooms with the vibration of love, so that all who enter, myself included, will feel this love and be nourished by it.
I love myself, therefore I work at a job I truly enjoy doing, one that uses my creative talents and abilities, working with and for people that I love and that love me, earning a good income.

I love myself therefore I behave and think in a loving way to all people, for I know that which I give out returns to me multiplied. I only attract loving people in my world, for they are a mirror of what I am.

 I love myself; therefore I forgive and totally release the past and all past experiences, and I am free. I love myself; therefore I live totally in the now, experiencing each moment as good, and knowing that my future is bright, joyous and secure. I am a beloved child of the universe and the universe lovingly takes care of me now and forever more.

And so it is.’’
