Self-Help Guru Louise Hay on What It Means to Love Yourself

Aired on 02/06/2008 | CC tv-pg
Louise Hay, who passed away this week, is widely considered one of the founders of the self-help movement. During the height of the AIDS epidemic, Louise famously started a support group for gay men called The Hayride. It's through projects like this—and her unrelenting championing of loving one's self—that made her an inspirational figure for millions.

Here, in this Oprah Show clip, Louise says deciding to love yourself won't change things overnight. Instead, you're planting the seeds that ultimately lead to spiritually flowering.
