You Can Heal Your Life, Louise Hay”: The quintessential ‘bible’ for creating miracles in your life has got to be Louise Hay, You Can Heal Your Life. A groundbreaking book when it was released in 1982. It is still the book that I turn to when I have a physical ailment that requires deeper understanding. Louise Hay is the pioneer in looking at the connection between the physical ailments that we have in our body and the emotional connection. At the time that she wrote the book many people scoffed at this idea; it is now considered ‘mainstream’ knowledge that millions of people refer to on a daily basis.

The Game of Life and How To Play It”, Florence Scovel-Shinn: A classic book that was first published in 1925 and remains one of my favourite books of all time. Scovel-Shinn understood the power of our words to manifest either our deepest desires or our most horrendous nightmares. She was a practising metaphysician before anyone knew what a metaphysician was. Her understanding of the principles of manifestation have been copied and used by authors and workshop leaders throughout the world. Even if they have never heard of her, her work shines through and remains the truest and most original work in this area.
Slowing down to the Speed of Life, Richard Carlson and Joseph Bailey This is a new one in my ‘bedside collection’ and one that has made the biggest impact on me lately. Written in 1997 it is even more relevant today than it was when it was written. The idea of ‘slowing down’ to get there faster has been a paradox of my life that has been extremely hard for me to understand.As a human species we seem to enjoy moving fast and expecting quick results, especially from ourselves. I should be successful NOW, I should be slim NOW, get me to my destination NOW – as opposed to ‘in the fullness of time’ when I am ready. These are new ideas for me but ones that are finally taking hold.So where does this leave you? The way I see it is if you want to ‘Heal Your Life’ then you had better learn how to play ‘The Game of Life’ by learning how to ‘Slow down to the Speed of Life’ and keep the ‘Four Agreements.’ The solution may not be easy to do but it is simple. That is the paradox of life; most solutions are pretty simple, it is us humans that want to complicate it.
