Top 15 Must-Reads to Start Your New Year from Hay House.

I love Louise Hay and her motivation, she is so infectious and you simply can’t escape her charm.

“I love myself, therefore, I behave in a loving way to all people for I know that that which I give out returns to me multiplied.” Louise Hay Positive Affirmation

She has helped millions through her work. Here are 15 Must Reads from brilliant Hay House for 2014. These are uplifting and powerful books and can really help the sufferers of ED by shedding a different perspective on life, uplifting them and healing them. Read them if you want to re-discover your identity, want to let go of your past, want to forgive, want to learn how to deal with difficult emotions, anger, sadness, low self esteem, depression etc.   Eating Disorders are a mask for emotions, an easier alternative than to deal with what is truly in the heart. The underlying message of these books is that you can heal your life.  Eating Disorders are about attempting to control your life and emotions through food/lack of food — and are a huge neon sign saying “look how out of control I really feel”. I love the positive affirmations by Louise Hay and her message that we all are powerful and that the universe loves us. What I love about Hay House Books is that they make you fall in love with life all over again. I hope you will find these books useful and I pray they aid some of you in your recovery from Eating Disorder by instilling a belief in you that you are brilliant and master of your own recovery.

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” —Edith Lovejoy Pierce
