Summary

Through the visualization techniques on this audio program, Louise L. Hay creates a safe atmosphere so that you can forgive others and love the child within you. Your inner child depends on you for the love and approval that you may not have received when you were a child. Going within and learning to love and comfort that inner child will bring many wonderful changes to the quality of your life.

Set yourself free!

By forgiving others who have hurt you, you can move forward.

By forgiving yourself of past hurts and resentments you can set yourself free.

Allow Louise Hay to guide you to forgiveness and freedom.

Wonderful

Loved this, really has helped me to actually feel love for myself and to forgive people that have hurt me. Visualisation is such a powerful thing and if repeated it can really clear some of that anger and resentment out of your life. Highly recommended.

Very cathartic

Amazing experience meeting with my inner child. I cried throughout. Not out of pain. More out of awareness, understanding and love for myself. Louise is an amazing person.

Lovely and powerful section on forgiveness

This is a guided meditation that is designed to help you love your inner child and forgive rather than hold onto pain, anger and resentment. The inner child bit didn’t really work for me because it was too brisk and hard to follow, but the second section on forgiveness was amazing and just what I was looking for to help me forgive and forget an ex. Don’t give up, listen to the end and it’s well worth it.

Healing!

I found it took a little while to get used to Louise's voice - it had that drawn out "trying to be calming" quality and I found this distracting - but that passed

The content - the visualisations? - felt longer than it took, in a very good way, it bought out good things - uncovered and helped to heal new areas.

I felt the forgiveness part challenging and also was distracted by whether this would be helpful - and wether it was appropriate or even fair. But that passed too, and it felt good after

I will go back to this again, several times I expect

Good, but fast in places

Usual Louise Hay visualisation type work and the content is good. I personally found it moved too fast at times and since the idea is your eyes are closed and your immersed in the regression she's guiding you through, you can't just pause the recording. She does recommend doing the exercises a few times in a row, which I've not had a chance to do. Perhaps repetition is the key.

A peaceful warrior finds a path to meet innocence.

As someone who has only learned negative attitudes as a way to motivate and push myself into what I think I should be or do, I had not only created my own long-standing depression, but also extreme and repeated self-sabotage. This meditation was the first self-help recording that I had listened to in my attempt to turn my life around. Despite what I intellectually knew about why I was behaving a certain way and that the supposed answer was to "love yourself", I didn't know where to start... or why my therapist even thought I didn't love myself. "You need to have forgiveness and compassion for yourself", she said several years ago. I had eventually stopped seeing her, as I saw no improvement in my behavior after many years of talk. After a life changing event, I knew there was no running from my issues and I set out to undertake in my own healing. I came upon a book that helped me understand that everyone has a relationship with themselves, whether aware or not, there were attitudes, expectations and assumptions that dictated how life was going to be handled. For the first time I saw just how damaging my inner dialog was. I learned the path to healing would be to re-parent myself. How was I going to do that? Well, this tape was a wonderful stepping stone for getting me in touch with my inner child. For the first time I was able to acknowledge her and miraculously, compassion and forgiveness just came naturally. It wasn't that I didn't love myself, I had just never been taught what healthy love looked like. If you are trying to form a conscious relationship with yourself, having difficulty with the concept of "loving yourself", or have problems accepting that vulnerability is not a reflection of self-worth, I feel this tape could help you frame things in a way that will allow you to see yourself in a different brighter light. Well wishes for you on you path to self healing <3 :)

Very Powerful!

We buy so many books and majority of them, albeit with intentions to help, lead us down the path that inevitably has us focusing on what is wrong, how it was wrong, why it was wrong, etc. If you think about it with some level of clarity, we are always focused on the WRONG! Louise Hay is different in that. Majority of HER material is focused on bringing you OUT of the state of misery rather than getting in their and dancing with your pain n immersing ur self in it.

This small yet powerful audio is wonderful. It works! I also love that I don't have to sit their for 4-8 hours to get to the meat of the book. Even though our psyche some how feels we are getting more when we buy a full length audiobook. This is not an audiobook. It's meditations. That WORK! If you want someone to talk to you for 8 hours to hv a pity party with this probably isn't for you. But if u r sick n tired of this "self help" industry and a guru for everything at every turn and just want something tht work NOW then pick this one up. You won't regret it. Play it often, even everyday in the beginning and enjoy the healing.

Love and Light

In-depth Inner Child meditation

I did this meditation and I expected it to be short, simple and easy. However, it was VERY in-depth and was a far deeper reaching meditation than I expected. I highly recommend it. I will tell you it's deep and will take you deep into yourself.

Just what I needed

Struggling with forgiving family members for very old wounds... couldn't sleep. Listened to this 2-3 times. In a row. This book relaxed me enough to allow me to start a process that I know will take some time. It stopped the wheel-churning that night. Thanks Louise Hay. Bless you.

This touched my wounded soul!

I found this book right around the time my therapist mentioned I need to start forgiving people in order to be able to move forward in my life, but especially in my love life. The guided imagery really made me feel emotional and so vulnerable imagining the child in me just wanting to be loved and to feel safe, which is what I have a hard time with right now. Not feeling safe with any new partner after all the times I have been hurt and unloved. Thank you for making this book, I will continue to listen to this book until I feel I have released into the river all of the old and heavy baggage that I keep carrying around. Thank you! <3

A spark of something

Right off the first time I listened to it, I felt something. I can't describe it, but it ignited something inside.
