So as Louise Hay and David Kessler would put it in the form of affirmation, all people and all situations are delivering me towards my higher good.
An easy book to read, chapters divided into short sections, gentle in its words, respectful of the matter being discussed but firm in showing the path to self-empowerment and healing.
This book deals with all that has to do with losses that clog our hearts leaving it blocked and shrivelled for years causing prolonged sadness, anger and a complete disappointment in life. An ever bleeding wound that will not let us live our life to its completeness.
It is only through thoroughly honouring our losses, live in and move through the grievance that we can slowly change our usually biased perception of what has happened. Repeated affirmations will slowly dissolve away our negative thoughts. Healing will bring us to a place where we can safely let go of pain and sorrow leaving us free to hold our love as a beacon to all that, who and what we loved and cherished in this lifetime.
The book makes no distinction between mayor or minor loss. The heart does not make that difference. Besides the classical losses of death, divorce and broken relationships of all kinds, the book dedicates a whole section on disenfranchised grief, that is that grief for which people do not feel they have a socially recognized right to grieve such as, LGBT relationships, loss of pets (a whole chapter is dedicated), abortion or miscarriages, suicide, drug/disease related deaths, loss of jobs or a kind of life that can never be again like it was before, such as cancer patients.
The beauty of this book is that it lovingly points out many times that all our interrelations and exchanges with and within this world are assigned to us for our own healing. That relationships and events are our guides and teachers that the Universe uses to help us discover within ourselves the Divine and the Power we all carry within and rarely acknowledge.
So now grab your pen and several Post-it and start writing your way out of grieve and your way in to your true free loving self.
On the cover of this month’s Unity Magazine Kessler is called “America’s Leading Grief Expert”. I love how the book mixes Kessler’s expertise with Hay’s affirmation techniques. “Grieving is challenging, but it is our thoughts that often add suffering to our pain,” the authors write in the first few pages. Kessler knows all about grief, Hay knows all about positive thoughts. It’s a powerful combination.
You Can Heal Your Heart is a book that gives readers hope, even in the most dire of circumstances. “Although it’s natural to forget your power after you lose a loved one, the truth is that after a breakup, divorce, or death, there remains an ability within you to create a new reality,” they say. The most common causes of grief are covered in different chapters: a broken romantic relationship, divorce, death of a loved one, even death of a pet. One chapter is devoted to other types of losses, such as losing a job. Regardless of the loss, there is light on the other side according to Kessler and Hay. “Our ultimate wish is for you to discover that no matter what you’re facing, you can heal your heart. You deserve a loving, peaceful life.”
Reading You Can Heal Your Heart caused me to take a fresh look at some of my past losses, and to appreciate the lessons learned through those events. “Life is always moving toward healing,” say the authors. One story that touched me was of Candy Lightner, who lost her first grade son Jesse in the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy. Mrs. Lightner encourages us to “change an angry thought into a loving one, each and every day.” The book is full of other inspiring stories of people who have dealt with loss and have come out on the other side with a positive outlook on life.
“We deeply believe in the affirmation Life loves us, although you may wonder how that applies in loss,” the authors conclude. “It doesn’t mean that you won’t experience loss—but depending on how you hold, perceive, and think about that loss, life can be there for you, even cradling you through your toughest times.” This is a book to read if you are having difficulty with a loss of your own, or to give to a friend or family member going through a similar ordeal.
Talking about the heart is such a sacred and intimate experience, especially when it comes to grief. I am deeply disappointed with the format. It just doesn't seem appropriate.
I am not grieving, but I did read this in anticipation of grief as grief (or any kind of a broken-hearted condition) cannot be escaped as part of the human condition. As such, I realize that healing is a process so I wanted to heal my heart for past separations and be prepared for future situations. I believe Louise Hay herself said, (paraphrased loosely) doing this type of [inner] work works best when you're not under the threat of a surgeon's knife.
This book should probably be read when one is not in a deep state of grief because there are some paradigm shifts that one's mind can make in regards to healing the heart after a breakup or separation or during the grieving process. In that regard, this book is deeply beneficial. Some of the information can come off as cold hearted, but again, these are shifts that a person must make within themselves; and the shifts aren't necessarily easy to digest at first glance.
Also, some suggestions are common sense if you've followed Louise Hay (i.e. having a positive stream of self talk during a breakup and interrupting the pattern of belittling oneself). I love having reminders of how to have a quality life, so this is a great book for that, despite its formulaic approach.
I am a BIG Louise Hay fan. At one point have owned all of her work (books, DVDs/videos, CDs, cards, etc.), so I am disappointed to have to give this book three stars, but this is my truth. It might be more accurate to give 3.5 stars, which Amazon doesn't allow. One time using the "recorder" excuse is acceptable, but using it as a pattern is insulting.
After reading the book I have been able to employ some of the self-help recommendations to completely turn things around in my life. The book was so beneficial for me that I purchased two hard cover books to give to both of my sons. I have never recommended any other book on Amazon or anywhere else for that matter. However, in this case I highly recommend this book to anyone that is suffering due to a traumatic life event, especially the loss of a loved one.
Since the authors made their points by recounting the stories of real life clients, this was a real easy read. One will easily be able to relate to the scenarios developed in this work. I hope this recommendation will help others find the same peace that I have as a result of having read and implemented the insights provided in You Can Heal Your Heart.
