Life Changing Material!
on January 7, 2008
Begins with a lady thinking all this negative self-talk. Then you hear others also thinking all this negative self-talk. A positive-thinker walks by and drops a card that says "I am willing to change." And there is a positive affirmation on the back of the card explaining what the statement means. The negative-thinker begins to think about what the card says. Louise Hay begins to dialog, explaining how changing our thoughts can dramatically influence our lives. Other subject-matter experts expand on The Universe, The Law of Attraction, abundance, etc. Louise tells her story, how she left an abusive home at 15, all that she endured before and after, and how she came to be where she is now. Throughout the DVD, various people talk about their experiences and how they relate to being in control of your attitude and health. They also discuss positive affirmations, health, getting what you want out of life, belief, emotion, gratitude, energy vibrations, the ego, dreams, assumptions, beliefs, denial, delay tactics, fear, forgiveness, physical healing, emotional healing, balance, loving yourself and others, spirituality, and self-esteem.
Some of the authors speaking in this CD are: Wayne Dyer (age 67), Greg Branden, Esther and Jerry Hicks, Louise Hays (age 80), Cheryl Richardson, Doreen Virtue, Candace Pert, Mona Lisa Schulz, Christiane Northrop, Gay Hendricks, and Leon Nacson. These are also the authors NOW, talking to you from the current time in their life, talking to you with all the vast experiences they have had in teaching others this material and practicing it themselves. They also explain the science behind how changing our thinking affects the electrical and magnetic physical processes within our bodies. (I mention the ages so you know these people have been around awhile, long enough to learn some things--long enough to cut through the BS, pardon my French.)
Bonus footage. After you watch disc 1, you can review the expanded interviews of the authors. That's a good feature because you can review the concepts of each author without watching the whole movie again. You will certainly want to watch disc 1 many times, but it's also good to be able to use disc 2 to focus on the concepts from each author, one at a time. It's almost like getting a private training session with each subject-matter expert. By the way, Wayne Dyer does a very convincing exercise to scientifically show how negative thoughts physically weaken us.
This is such great stuff, released toward the end of 2007, so it's current. (But the principles are older than baby Jesus being born in the manger.) CD 1 runs 90 minutes with approximately 4 hours of bonus footage on CD 2, including interviews with the individual authors, including Louise Hay. Al the material is well explained with simple-to-follow words and examples, AND IT IS LIFE-CHANGING MATERIAL, if you can allow yourself to be a little open-minded. I knew in the first 5 minutes that this was great material! I sat up till almost 1 am watching this set and I usually head to bed at 10. This is such powerful stuff that I firmly believe and have been practicing, especially for the last couple of years. I have already seen tremendous positive examples of these concepts at work in my personal experiences. By the way, I like this DVD set much better than "The Secret" DVD.
On a side note, I have found some FANTASTIC authors and some FANTASTIC books, DVDs, and CDs through Hay House Publishing, thanks to Louise Hay. Some of my favorite Hay House authors are: Wayne Dyer, Doreen Virtue, and John Holland. I have grown significantly, spiritually, thanks to these authors. If you don't know it already, you would be AMAZED what you can do with a positive mental attitude, ABSOLUTELY AMAZED. The more you believe, the more you see, and then the more you see, the more you believe, and on goes the cycle. I guess that most people just think it's too simple. You know what? It ISSSSS simple! WE make it difficult! Yep--WE do it to ourselves. Think about it---I mean, REALLY think about it. How many times have you complicated your life by the negative attitude you took about someone or something? This is profound, Hon!
It's incredible, but you must believe first. You owe it to yourself to be happy! The most important words you will EVER hear are the words you say to yourself! (And you can quote me on that.) If you tell yourself you are a loser, you will BE a loser. Stop! Rewind! (I don't make any money on this review or this DVD folks. I just want to see you be happy and this material is right on target.) Do yourself a big favor--get this DVD! It explains so much. YOUR THOUGHTS DO CREATE YOUR LIFE!!!
By the way, if you have a group of like-minded friends, you could play this set for the group, then discuss segments of it together to further the understanding of each person in the group. This DVD set also makes a nice gift for someone, especially someone on a spiritual learning path.
This can also be a great gift for someone whose family life is unsettled, where there is negativity running through the family. The CD can also help teach the children something, as well as the adults.
God Bless You in your search for wisdom and truth. Namaste'.
