There’s only one way to conclude Hay House’s year-long 20th Anniversary celebration as the international leader in inspirational and self-help publishing—with a big bang! For the grand finale of our commemorative year, Hay House is proud to announce the debut of the first-ever film on the life and work of our much-loved founder, Louise L. Hay — You Can Heal Your Life : The Movie !
“I’ve become so delighted with this project,” Louise said about her film debut. “I’ve noticed that women in the film industry who are 35 are usually too old to get a part. But I’m 80 and I’m doing my first movie . . . and I’m the star. It’s very, very exciting.”
There are few people we meet in our lifetime whose presence and effervescent spirit fills us instantly with an abundance of energy and love. Louise Hay is one of those rare people who radiates peace and seems to make time stand still. And when the prospect of a movie about her life and her work came to fruition, the unanimous response from all who have been touched by Louise’s caring nature and generous desire to help others was—“It’s about time!”
It all started more than 30 years ago when Louise saw how people let illness and hurtful circumstances control their lives. She vowed to help them see that the root of their pain stemmed from their own negative thoughts. So, she sat down and wrote a little blue pamphlet where she described how our mental patterns and beliefs can actually contribute to illness in our body. She even listed various medical conditions, explained what thoughts correlated with them, and showed us that the way to heal our lives was just a positive thought away.
Louise had a simple message that she wanted to share: “The body, like everything else in life, is a mirror of our inner thoughts and beliefs. Every cell within your body responds to every single thought you think and every word you speak.”
Little did she know that this tiny blue book, which she incorporated into her second book You Can Heal Your Life would change the world and its way of thinking. You Can Heal Your Life, published in 1984, has been translated into 29 different languages, is available in more than 35 countries, and to date has sold more than 35 million copies around the world.
In the later decades of her life, Louise has touched hundreds of thousands of lives with her groundbreaking wisdom and her generous heart. Now, you can see this firsthand in You Can Heal Your Life: The Movie, which presents some of the most fascinating and memorable moments of Louise’s life.
In this film, you learn about Louise’s early days and the events that lead her to where she is today. You see, through personal interviews, how Louise teaches us to look within and heal ourselves. And you glimpse back to the time when Louise launched her successful book publishing company from a small bedroom in her home when she self-published her “little blue book.”
You also discover many things that you may not know about Louise—how she opened doors for women in the publishing business and the inspirational speaking circuit and how she broke barriers by reaching out to the men and women afflicted with AIDS during a time when much of the world left them behind.
You meet the woman who wakes up every day and proclaims her love for everyone and everything in her path, the woman who popularized “affirmations,” the woman who shakes hands with presidents, dignitaries, celebrities, and who always has an affectionate hug for fans who run up to her at a public appearance or Hay House event to thank her for “saving my life.” And when she embraces them, she’ll insist, “It wasn’t me. It was you.”
The best way to learn about Louise and the impact of her work is to listen to others describe the many ways she has helped shape their lives. “Louise has been a profoundly positive influence in my life, and she is one of my greatest teachers,” notes longtime Hay House author Doreen Virtue. “Louise is one of the most powerful persons I have ever met, and I am truly blessed to have spent time with her. I’m so pleased that this movie will allow you the joy of spending time with Louise, too.”
Best-selling author Gregg Braden adds, “I was working as a defense systems computer engineer during the last years of the Cold War when I first read Louise’s book, You Can Heal Your Life. It came to me at a turning point in my life and I found it so beautiful, so powerful, and so true. Through the simple elegance that’s the hallmark of her work, Louise put words to my view of a life philosophy that includes compassionate self-healing. Now, 20 years later, I’m not only honored to be part of the Hay House family, but I’m blessed to know the woman who gives so much in the world, and who touched my life during such a pivotal time in such a special way.”
A number of luminaries in the fields of self-help and health and spirituality and new thought—including Doreen Virtue, Gregg Braden, Wayne W. Dyer, Gay Hendricks, Esther and Jerry Hicks, Leon Nacson, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Candace B. Pert, Cheryl Richardson, Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz, and many others share their personal stories about Louise’s impact on their lives in You Can Heal Your Life: The Movie.
“It’s an honor to be part of a film that celebrates the work of an amazing woman who has done so much for so many,” says best-selling author and renowned life coach Cheryl Richardson. “Louise is a bright light whose wisdom started me on my journey of awakening. It’s exciting to think that even more people will be blessed with her message of hope and strength.”
