You Can Trust Your Life DVD Set Review

I love Louise Hay! And if you see her video, You Can Trust Your Life, you'll see why. The 4 DVD set is a live taping of Louise Hay and Cheryl Richardson talking to an audience during a Hay House Seminar. They are inspiring people that clearly care about others. It's visible in the advice they comfort the people who ask questions, and in the advice the give people. They clearly want them to overcome their limiting beliefs and heal themselves.

Hay House sent me a DVD set of You Can Trust Your Life by Cheryl Richards and Louise Hay for my honest review. I listened to it as I folded laundry, cleaned the house and cooked in an empty house, while the kids and my husband were away at sports. I felt as if I was at a weekend retreat. I had too much to do around the house to just sit with a notebook and blanket and watch the video like I wanted but I still enjoyed it quite a bit and plan to do just that if I ever feel I need some comforting words again.

Some of the topics they covered were mirror work, affirmations, tapping and creating a loving environment both at home and work. Louise Hay gives advice on how to greet your day and how to center yourself when you arrive home so that you intentionally create the life and experiences you want. I like that the DVDs are broken up into different topics. I've gone back to view disc 4 again  to listen to the work related and forgiveness topics again.

It's great to have more than one person up their on stage because then it creates a dialog that we can eavesdrop into as an audience or viewer. I'm familiar with a lot of the concepts already from reading such books as Ekhart Tolle's The Power Of Now and The Secret. But still I find this very interesting because there is always something to learn when you listen to Loiuse Hay or there is something you already knew but need to remember.

I recommend these videos for someone going through a rough time and perhaps can't afford to take a weekend retreat. This DVD set is wonder to cuddle up and watch and be inspired by. It's also good for when you want to break your busyness cycle and recharge.

Went to Memoir-Writing Workshop

I went to a memoir-writing workshop recently. I don't want to be the girl who cries at the slightest thing but, in this case, I was. They asked the question: who told you, you can't write? We had to state our writing demons, and then write out the dialog between this inner critique and our retaliation to their remarks. Ultimately, it is only ourselves that can hold us back from our own dreams. But sometimes we've internalized the voices of others tell us that we can't.  I'd done this exercise before privately, in my own bed, in my own room, and in my own journal but never out loud. When we were done, we had to go around the table and read the dialog. I was picked the first to go. Before I could even let out a word, my throat choked up, my face turn red, and my eyes began to water. I read and cried. We all cried. I thought I had left all that hurt hidden away on paper somewhere, and there it was strangling me. I can't begin to describe that whole situation with …

Artwork of Readers

You know how I love to read. Well, I was just so excited and inspired when I came across a variety of artworks created of readers. The artwork spanned centuries and styles, and left me wanting more. Here is just a sample of what I found.

When was the last time you held a book? What was the last book you read? How was your transition from reading paper backs to reading in digital format? Have you made that switch yet?

This is also from an older draft post. I've since been part of a show, an extraordinary experience I still have to blog about but I'd thought I'd still post these earlier thoughts.

I love writing so just having a story out their in print or online and getting commented on I thought was enough but as I was recently told by an actor, when your story is told on stage its a completely different experience because of the interaction between the actors and the audience.

In this play I definitely felt the chemistry. Now and days and even back in the old days it was so hard to make a motion picture. To tell one of our stories would cost thousands of dollars and an experienced Hollywood budget and staff. At CASA 0101 what you need is an idea and some ganas to make your story into a play. And best of all its a community event with a very grass roots feel.
