I recently attended the”I Can Do It” conference in Sydney, run by Hay House. It was a very inspiring and informative day with all many of the greatest leaders in personal development, psychology and spiritual growth talking. Louise Hay, of the original affirmations book “You Can Heal Your life” and founder of Hay House, opened the conference.
Louise Hay is like the perfect Grandma. She sat on the front of the stage after a hip accident that she said “really slowed her down” and made her stop and think a bit more. Apparently she usually zips around with the vigor of someone half her hage. Her face is wise and beautiful, with a joy and compassion that shines in every word she says. She is 84 and an absolutely stunning human being. I have an AMAZING grandma myself, but if I had to have another one, I would pick Louise Hay. 🙂
Here are some of the ideas and notes I took from her opening presentation:
Every single thought is an affirmation, from the moment you wake up. To the moment you go to sleep, everything you say to yourself, all day long, is an affirmation. Every single thought sends out a vibration and creates our world. Every. Single. Thought. Notice your thoughts all day long?
What do you think when you first wake up? Do you snuggle and feel warm, cosy and grateful? Do you say “oh shit another day” Louise says: “It’s going to be a wonderful day!” when she gets to the mirror she does her famous mirror affirmations, and she really means it when she says to herself “Darling, I really love you!”
What do you say when you get dressed? How do you think about or talk to your wardrobe? Do you say “Oh no I have nothing to wear?” or like Louise “Oh thank you closet, I’m so glad and grateful I have something wonderful to wear today!”
Observe what you are affirming to yourself all day long. Do you grumble and whine about things. Stop it. Stop that thought dead in its tracks, because you whining about the problem is helping to manifest the very problem you are whining about!
Her talk really made me think about the couple of times a day when I make negative affirmations to myself. One of my past ones was “I’m not a morning person.” and in the morning I would say, “Oh it’s too cold to get up” and I would snuggle into my husband. Recently I have been getting up really early, and I realised I just never got up early enough to see if I was a morning person!! It’s really nice in the morning. Who knew??! I still enjoy snuggles mind you, but now I can make a conscious and positive choice about whether I am going to get up, and reinforce myself when I do get up early with positive thoughts and affirmations like. “It’s so easy to get up early, I’m going to get so much done today.”
Louise has written many books on the power of thoughts and mindset, if you haven’t read any yet, I would encourage you to. She is quite an inspiration.
Here are my Slim & Sexy Morning Affirmations, if you don’t already say them each and every morning, get to it, and notice how it begins to shift your inner perceptions about yourself.
“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
