Louise L. Hay’s Affirmations for Self-Love

While it’s a wonderful thing to experience romantic love, the most important love we can attain is self-love. Truly loving ourselves means having a deep appreciation for who we are, including what we see as our “faults.” It’s sad, but many of us refuse to love ourselves until we reach some self-imposed goal such as losing weight or making a lot of money. These goals are only a distraction, masking the true lack in our lives. Ultimately, we cannot sustain healthy relationships with other people if we do not have healthy, loving relationships with ourselves.

I hope that the following three affirmations will help the love for yourself to grow.


I’ve come a long way in my inner work on myself, and I still have much to do. I have learned that making myself “wrong”  for anything is not a healing process. I can examine the situation and see where I could do it better next time. I can look for thoughts that would support uncomfortable behaviour and release them. When I become aware that I am making myself wrong for something, I can stop my punishing manner of thinking.

Each day is a learning experience, and by our “mistakes” we learn how to do it differently next time. So I am never wrong. I am just learning. It is all so simple.


We are all one in Spirit. Yet, my face is a unique and different expression of the face of God. You and I are not supposed to be alike. While many people live their lives by what others think, I can choose to follow my own heart and let others think whatever they wish.

I am neither too much nor too little, and I do not have to prove myself to anyone. I choose to cherish and love myself as the Divine, Magnificent Expression of Life that I am. Being me is an exhilarating adventure. I follow my inner star, and sparkle and shine in my own unique way.


Every day it is getting easier to give myself a good dose of unconditional love. I believe that what I ‘pick up’ depends on where I am in consciousness. Do I believe that “life is hard and I always get the short end of the stick,” or “I’m no good anyway, so what difference does it make”? If my beliefs run along these lines, then my immune system – which registers my thoughts and feelings – will be lowered and open to whatever I give it.

If I believe, however, that “life is a joy, I am lovable and my needs are always met,” then my immune system will feel supported, and my body will more easily fight off dis-ease.

More of Louise’s affirmations on self-love can be found in her book, Meditations To Heal Your Life, available wherever good books are sold. For more information CLICK HERE.
