#Review You Can Heal Your Life, by Louise L. Hay 3.5 stars


I’ve been back and forth on the rating of this book all week since I finished it earlier this week. Some parts I really enjoyed and some parts I felt like I’ve heard and read a thousand times over… which I probably have, but I suppose that’s what happens when you read a lot of law of attraction stuff. I guess I can’t help but search for something new, something more, something a bit more personal. About half of this story has that, and about half is the same cookie cutter LOA and holistic healing advice you can get.

What I did enjoy about it is the sharing of Louise’s childhood, and life changes as she grew. She’s been through a lot, especially as a young child. The fact that she was not only able to grow into a successful adult, but one that has turned and offered a helping hand to so many people with her words is great! I definitely have a lot of admiration for Louise Hay. I also like the explanations of the body and ailments, and what subconscious issues effects these parts of your bodies. That was every informative and new from what I’ve previously read.

What I felt lacking was drive, motivation, upliftment. I felt like it was a bit emotionless.


Louise L. Hay, bestselling author of You Can Heal You Life; is an internationally known leader in the self-help field.

    1. YES, all holistic and natural, she really is such an inspirational woman! I wish the book would have covered a bit more of this. I felt like her writing skimped out on a lot of personal connection with her experience. To me it was a little disconnected given everything she’s gone through. Not enough emotion for me.
