There has been a lot in the news and on the airwaves about an epidemic of anxiety. Spectrum (British Wheel of Yoga) magazine included an article on this topic in the Summer 2016 edition. The author closes the article quoting the words of Louise L. Hay. I have since discovered they come from her book “Meditations to Heal Your Life” (Hay House Inc, 1 Jul 2000; pages 236-7). So this week’s classes begin with her words, to take into our practice and our lives.
I trust myself. – by Louise L. Hay
We trust that our next breath is there. Let’s begin to trust that other things will be there for us, also. The world is a work of art, and so am I. For me to contribute positively to this ongoing creation, it is necessary that I trust the process of life. If things get difficult, I confidently go within and anchor my thoughts in truth and love. I ask for the guidance of the Universe as I make my way safely through stormy seas and calm, blissful weather. My job is to stay in the present moment and to choose clear, simple, positive thoughts and words. I know it is not necessary or even possible to have a reason for everything. I do know that I was born a beautiful and trusting soul. I take a moment now to treasure the mysterious and invisible process of life that I am.
