As a professional caregiver who has been a family caregiver, I am often inspired by teachers and authors of books about using your full potential. Louise Hay, who is a metaphysical lecturer and best selling author of numerous books who also founded the “I Can Do It” conference that has been coming to the Tampa Bay area for a few years.
She has this gift of bringing several metaphysical teachers together for a weekend of motivation, inspiration and fascination that leaves you wanting more. It was thrilling to see Louise Hay up on stage announcing that she is writing a book and returning to lecturing at age 84 because she feels guided to do so.
To this day, if I”m feeling stressed or uneasy, I just pop one of Louise Hay’s cd’s into my car sound system and allow myself to calm down, take deep breaths, and trust that I was safe in the universe. But when I was an active family caregiver I would use these simple, but powerful steps to gain calmness and clarity, which prepared me for my visits with my in-laws who were having difficulty adjusting to physical, medical and mental changes that were occurring often in their lives. My ability to remain caring, centered, and clear helped guide me to the next best steps for their care.
