Sample Thought: I CAN RELEASE THE PAST AND FORGIVE EVERYONE. I free myself and everyone in my life from old, past hurts. They are free and I am free to move into new, glorious experiences.

I thought that this would be an interesting way to use affirmations, but what I have found is a powerful tool that is helping to change me to be a more positive person. Since I have started to listen to this, I have found that I am more open to new thoughts and more positive with my relationships. This is such a positive, self-affirming set of thoughts!
101 Power Thoughts is packed with excellent affirmations! Since I can only manage two 15 min sessions a day I really prefer a slightly faster pace.
Also: Her tape "What I Believe and Deep Relaxation" is also excellent moves at a slower pace and has an awesome 15 min. meditation that is also super charged with positive affirmations.
The thoughts are great, especially if you are a Louise Hay fan. However, this particular audio book is annoying from a technological perspective. The background music is too loud and almost drowns out the all-important thoughts. Also, the speed of the audio is a tad too fast. Rather than enjoying listening to it, I feel my heart rate speeding up because of the speed of spoken word and music and the volume of the music. I don't know that I will actually listen to it as often as I had hoped. Too bad we can't separate the background music from the spoken word.
Like Wayne Dyer, this collection of thoughts will (mostly) resonate. I like listening to this in traffic or after a real heavy day. Its different to most books, because you don't actually have to listen to each thought, and if you miss out on one idea, there's always another just round the corner.
I would class this book as almost meditative in nature.
I notice Louise has many books and audios out. This was one audio I bought because of its cost--ended up being a great value.
This is one good audio of many affirmations that either I can accept or ponder on. The affirmations are accompanied by some peaceful piano music. I especially like to ponder on some of the affirmations to see whether they apply or not to my life. Or whether I can extend the affirmations to other aspects of my life.
I like to listen to Louise when working on something a bit stressful or when I'm tending towards negative thoughts. Sometimes its just good to have someone remind me of the many great things about me or how many of the negative things in life are actually seeds for future growth.
Whats interesting is that I do feel powerful after listening to her soothing voice. And her voice and emphasis are genuinely caring and thoughtful, not just a marketing pitch.
Also, Louise Hay runs Hayhouse Radio, a station with many weekly discussions between certain authors like Wayne Dyer and everyday people calling in.
I also have gone to the bookstore and see that her books are well written and mature. It's a guide for buying some more of her audio books. I read more on Louise to find she is real product of her work.
Nothing better than someone who nows what it's like to go from the bottom to a glorious life.
I listen to this audiobook every night while I get ready for bed. I am filled with peace. I have found that over time I have shifted from my previously negative thinking to thinking that is much more positive. In general, I feel MUCH better about myself and the world. Listening to the title once was enlightening, but letting the messages steep down into my subconscious by incorporating them into my daily routine is how I've been able to make substantive changes in my life. "I love you."
When I listen to Louise's power thoughts, I feel less stress, more love and more peace. I've also seen some positive changes in my life which came about without much effort on my side, except for listening to Louise...so I warmly recomend it to everyone.
I play this as background music any time..... when I am getting dressed, driving, exercising.....It will change your life.
The affirmations used are generally common sense but when you have poor role models, it is an emotional and mental struggle to overcome the skewed programming a person may receive in their subconscious. I believe listening to these power thoughts regularly is helping me see myself and the world in a different light. Thank you.
No I wouldn't. It has many good messages but the background music is loud, a little cheesy and irritating. I can't even concentrate on what is being said because the music is grating on my ears. It's isn't bad music, it's just a kinda overkill.
"This is excellent stuff"
I was listening to some of this on the internet and found it to be very helpful. I am delighted to be able to have this on my ipod so that its on hand to be listened to anytime, anywhere. Louise's outstanding positivity is inspirational and the result is that the listener starts to mimic this positivity. I find it really useful when negative thoughts are getting in my way. I'd recommend it to anyone. Get on the Hay train - it'll take you far
Good tool for self help
Really helps for detachment of old and unwanted thoughts
