Dear Louise,
I’m 43 years old and have had acne since I was about 12. What might you suggest regarding core issues I might be storing that have contributed to this long-standing problem? I wish to release toxins, traumas, and old scripts associated with this condition!
H.E., New York City

Dear H.E.,
After observing myself and so many other people for many, many years, I’ve come to the conclusion that food and thinking are the two things at the core of almost all of our issues—that is, the thoughts we choose to think and the foods we choose to eat. The first thing to look at is your diet. Sometimes the simplest changes can make a big difference in your health. I personally do not eat dairy, wheat, sugar, corn, soy, or caffeine.

On the metaphysical level, anything to do with the skin relates to self-worth and your individuality. So, there’s a part of you that feels that you’re worthless and have no right to exist. All affirmations of self-worth and self-love are great for you. Affirm: I love and adore myself. I am worthy of the best in life. I love my face. I am beautiful and everybody loves me. I am worth loving. Bye, bye, acne—it is time for you to disappear. Life loves me.

Dear Louise,
For most of my adult life (I’m 55 now), I’ve been drawn to live in California. I’ve come to feel and believe that my life would become more meaningful spiritually and I’d prosper, and that I’d also meet that special woman there.
I did live in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and even briefly in San Diego, but I’ve come back to the East Coast to retire. Is this all in my head, or is it my destiny? Something within says, “Take the chance and live,” meaning move back. What do you suggest?

Dear B.D.,
There’s a branch of astrology that answers just this sort of question: Where are the best places in this country, or on the planet, for me to live. It’s called AstroCartography, or Relocation Astrology. Go to and you’ll find what you’re looking for. Also, I’m sure that there are astrologers in Atlanta who could be of help to you.

My company recently added a wonderful author/astrologer, Mark Husson, to our Hay House Radio lineup, and he also does private sessions. I’ve personally used Mark’s services, and he’s great! He can be reached through his website:
Good luck in your quest, and remember to always follow your heart.
Affirm: I now attract to myself the answer I am looking for.

Dear Louise,
I’m aware that fear is the dominant vibration in my life, but the more affirmations I focus on, the more fear I seem to generate, and I have frightening vision problems. I affirm: “I choose to see clearly with eyes of love,” but have yet to achieve a place of safety and love within myself. I’m also working on releasing bulimia and osteoporosis. Is there a key that I’m missing?
U.S., Montreal, Canada

Dear U.S,
I heard a suggestion recently: Put a smile in your liver—meaning, keep yourself so full of smiling love that even your liver is smiling. There’s a little girl within you that longs to be loved and comforted and accepted just as she is.

I suggest that you put your arms around yourself, with your left hand on your liver (on your ribcage, just below your right breast), and say tenderly and lovingly: I love you so much that even my liver is smiling. You cannot love and fear at the same time. Just love your liver for now. When your liver is healthy and happy, your whole body will sing with joy. This will soothe your inner child.
