From the book "You Can Heal Your Life" by LOUISE HAY,
ABOUT THE LIST
The last major revision of this list was in 1988. I still get mail asking for the mental patterns for the latest dis-eases of the moment, such as fibromyalgia; however, I see no reason to add any more patterns. I've learned that there are really two mental patterns that contribute to dis-ease: fear and anger. Anger can show up as impatience, irritation, frustration, criticism, resentment, jealousy, or bitterness. These are all thoughts that poison the body. When we release this burden, all the organs in our body begin to function properly. Fear could be tension, anxiety, nervousness, worry, doubt, insecurity, feeling not good enough, or unworthiness. Do you relate to any of this stuff? We must learn to substitute faith for fear if we are to heal.
Faith in what? Faith in life. I believe that we live in a "Yes" Universe. No matter what we choose to believe or think, the Universe always says yes to us. If we think poverty, the Universe says Yes to that. If we think prosperity, the Universe says Yes to that. So we want to think and believe that we have the right to be healthy, that health is natural to us. The Universe will support and say yes to this belief. Be a "Yes" person, and know that you live n a "Yes" world, being responded to by a "Yes" Universe.
If you find yourself with some sort of dis-ease that's not listed here, become your own investigator and healer. Ask yourself: Is it one of the forms of fear, or is it one of the forms of anger? Are you willing to release those thoughts? Are you willing to replace those thoughts with positive affirmations? Loving yourself will also contribute greatly to healing your body, for love heals.
So how do you love yourself? First of all, and most important: Cease all criticism of yourself and others. Accept yourself as you are. Praise yourself as much as you can. Criticism breaks down the inner spirit; praise builds it up. Look into a mirror often, and simply say: I LOVE YOU, I REALLY LOVE YOU. It may be difficult at first, but keep practicing, and soon you will mean and feel what you say. Love yourself as much as you can, and all of life will mirror this love back to you.
By the way, fibromyalgia is fear showing up as extreme tension due to stress.
