I've enjoyed Lissa Rankin's other books and looked forward to this book. It's been a good meditation book and I ended up purchasing a print copy. The format of letters to myself from my inner light works some times and other letters seem to be harder to understand. I'm sure fans of Lissa will appreciate this but I'm not sure how broad the appeal will be.

Sorry for possible English mistakes.
Great book, words and advices are directly from "Higher self" or "Cosmic mind" and in that way these mini lectures are very interesting. One can learn very much about dynamics of his/her own "angel's" being. Unfortunately this kind of language can cause problems to some people because it tends to be too much intimate, if you can get pass that and relax you can enjoy more in this book. Thanks to publisher and this site for sharing this nice book.

The Daily Flame by Lissa Rankin is a book of 365 readings to inspire you.

First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Sounds True, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

My Synopsis:  
There are 365 “letters of encouragement” from your inner self, designed to provide you empowerment when you need it most.  These letters offer you guidance, from your own subconscious.  You don’t have to read them in order.  They are a reminder to yourself how great you are.

My Opinions:  
This was not what I was expecting.  I was looking for a daily meditation.  I received….not sure, but I know I am disenchanted.

Every day your Inner Pilot Light sends you an inspiring letter.   Who knew how annoying it can be to be called Lovely and Beloved and Dear.  Instead of being inspired, I felt patronized and angry.  

I read various pages over about a month, different days, different times of day, and in different moods.   My opinion didn’t change. These readings just didn’t click with me.  Maybe they will with you!

Self-Talking and Self-Love inspirations are the main subject of the book. Lissa exposes the reader with 365 shorts texts using different perspectives such as a letter, a reflective text and others.

I've read and enjoyed all of Lissa Rankin's previous books. This is a lovely addition to her works that offers a daily dose of self-love, inspiration, and reminders for women to listen to their inner self. The letters are short, sweet, and thoughtful. Some offer insightful questions readers will want to use as journal prompts. Others encourage creativity, self-care, and digging deeper into who they are and what they want from life. 

This isn't a how-to book, but rather an invitation to readers to settle in and explore who they truly are.

I recommend this book for anyone who wants to start or end their day with an uplifting message.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you Sounds True and Netgalley for this ARC in epreturn for my honest review.

I looked forward to reading this book and using it as a daily meditation  each morning. 
Unfortunately the book wasn’t for me.   I  didn’t connect with the language that was used and would not personally use it as a go to daily inspiration guide.  The prose was a little too gushy for my liking.

I love the imagery of the inner pilot light!  In my own inner work over the years I equate The inner pilot light to my inner soul essence, or my inner wise one. I love that this is a book that I can pick up once a day in order to get in touch with my best and brightest self. It feels like having a nurturing mother by my side, telling me each day exactly what I need to hear.  I also really appreciated the “voice” of the authors inner pilot light  and how it was laced with humor throughout each letter.  I found myself smiling and giggling many times as well as being deeply moved. 

Thanks to NetGalley, the author and publisher for an advanced reading copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I was disappointed with this book. I had really looked forward to the book after reading Rankin's previous book. The idea of a daily meditation was really appealing to me--I enjoy reading a short passage of something uplifting in the morning to set the tone for the day. This book was just disjointed and too flowery. It just felt condescending to me and I couldn't get past the language. I gave up part of the way through. It might be exactly what someone else needs though so I'm hesitant to give it a lower rating.
