Louise Hay has died at the age of 90.
She’s done so much for the community with her books and her acts.
“In 1976, Hay wrote her first book, Heal Your Body, which began as a small pamphlet containing a list of different bodily ailments and their “probable” metaphysical causes. This pamphlet was later enlarged and extended into her book You Can Heal Your Life, published in 1984″
Around the same time she began leading support groups for people living with HIV/AIDS, which she called “Hay Rides”. These grew from a few people in her living room to hundreds of men in a large hall in West Hollywood, California.
Hay used to offer spiritual guidance, affirmations and unconditional love. She also lead visualizations with hundreds of mostly strangers making room to lying next to a sick, healthy or healing body to do intimate private internal work. By the end, whether full forgiveness had been achieved or not, there were no strangers, only friends with no known name yet. The atmosphere in the auditorium was infused with honest emotion—sadness at the loss of loved ones, grief at one’s own imminent passing, and love and joy enough to move mountains.
Hay ran a charitable organization called the Hay Foundation, which she founded in 1985 that helped thousand of persons all around the world.
This is a statement from Reid Tracy, CEO and President, Hay House, Inc.:
“Our beloved friend and founder Louise Hay transitioned this morning, August 30, 2017 of natural causes at age 90. She passed peacefully in her sleep.
Louise was an incredible visionary and advocate. Everyone who had the privilege to meet her, either in person or through her words, felt her passion for serving others.
Louise entrusted us with the company that she built in order to enrich the lives of others interested in self-healing and empowerment.
Her legacy will live on and her spirit will inspire all that we do. Hay House will continue to publish products and online learning courses that align with Louise’s core teachings.
We honor her through our memories and will carry out her vision for many years to come. I know that we are divinely guided by her loving hand.
Louise Hay’s estate, as well as all future royalties, will be donated to The Hay Foundation, a nonprofit organization established by Louise that financially supports diverse organizations supplying food, shelter, counseling, hospice care, and funds to those in need.”
