Dubbed “the closest thing to a living saint” by the Australian media, Louise Hay is also known as one of the founders of the self-help movement and named “The Queen of The Law of Attraction” by Oprah Whinfrey. Louise had a very rough upbringing, her stepfather abused her and her mother for years and when she was only 5 she was raped by a neighbour. She fell pregnant at 16 and had to give her child up for adoption. When she first started learning about healing yourself through your mind and body she was diagnosed with incurable cancer which she overcame by refusing treatment and loving her body and mind and looking after both to dissolve the disease. Her first book, Heal Your Body, was published in 1976, long before it was fashionable to discuss the connection between the mind and body. It was revised in 1988, this best-selling book introduced Louise’s concepts to people in 33 different countries and has been translated into 25 languages throughout the world. This book was You can heal your life. This book has since progressed into Louise’s first film named same. Louise has been responsible for so much more than writing, she started the Hay Ride group in the 80’s helping victims of HIV/AIDS. She set up her own publishing company Hay House that focuses solely on self development and well-being products. She learned to paint in her 70’s and opened her own gallery of her art. She has also created audio CD’s, apps and pocket cards for affirmations to help people live the life they were meant to live. She continues to work non stop at the age of 87!
