"I Affirm My Power: Everyday Affirmations and Rituals to Create the Life That You Desire" by Phoebe Garnsworthy is a great resource for anyone looking to improve their spiritual practices and connect with their soul on a deeper level. As someone who struggles with negative self-talk and anxiety, I found the affirmations and daily rituals in this book to be incredibly helpful.

One thing I love about this book is the range of affirmations provided. Whether you're struggling with setting boundaries, feeling confident, or finding inner peace, there is an affirmation for every situation. Each affirmation is accompanied by a description, meditation exercise, and journaling prompt.

Overall, "I Affirm My Power" is a fantastic guide for those looking to incorporate affirmations and daily rituals into their spiritual practices. It's a great reminder to take care of ourselves and connect with our soul's desires. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to improve their self-care and spiritual practices.

These types of collections are best read as daily remainders, rather than all at once. A soothing and unexpectedly delightful collection of content that goes beyond affirmations and incorporates the creation of rituals and routines to help you establish the lifestyle you desire. 

Thank you to the author and the publisher for this ARC through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Very Positive Affirmations

The author states that in order to transform your energy, we need to be aware of the energy we currently hold, because our energy changes all the time and that it is influenced by the words we say, the thoughts we think, and the events in our life that we consciously and unconsciously choose. And because of this, it is crucial to be aware of our energy so that we can cleanse, recharge, and protect it often. She provides many affirmations and meditation exercises that one may use to cleanse and recharge our energy.
This book is fully of very positive affirmations that will surely give you a deep inner peace. I enjoyed reading this book and do highly recommend.

Many thanks to the author for such heart felt positive affirmations.

I have been looking for this book all of my life! 
My favorite kind of books are those you can “dip” into randomly for intuitive wisdom and inspiration. 
“I Affirm My Power” is made specifically to do this! The book can be opened randomly to any number of gorgeous illustrations, bits of rich wisdom, journaling exercises and affirmations. 
Not only is visually enticing to look at, each area of focus pulled me in to some of my deepest truths and pointed me towards affirming myself within those truths. It’s almost instantly uplifting and grounding at the same time. I’m telling you, this book is gold! I have already pre-ordered a physical copy so it can rest on my nightstand and become part of my daily practice.

A truly valuable resource that has been added to my collection, although none of them have had such an impact as this one has. It felt natural to start adopting the practices in this book, and I hope all the readers will feel the same way too.

This book was a pleasant surprise. I Affirm My Power is much more than the simple collection of affirmations I had expected it to be.

The book begins with a beginner-friendly introduction to the ideas of manifestation, creating sacred space, ritual, elemental energies, meditation, and journaling. The themes are pagan-friendly, but not attached to any specific tradition. The author’s tone throughout is gentle and non-judgemental.

The bulk of the book is dedicated to a selection of 30 affirmations meant to increase self-confidence and soul connection. Each of the 30 affirmations included in the book includes a definition of intent, associated journal prompts, and a related guided meditation. I really appreciate this more in-depth, reflective approach to affirmations, as opposed to just listing a bunch of power phrases for the reader to unquestionably recite.

Throughout the book, lovely illustrations by Jakub Szczepaniak add an organic, divine feminine aesthetic. I will say that I was surprised the artist’s name wasn’t featured more prominently, as i found the illustrations to be essential to the feel of the book.

The author’s intent is for the reader to open the book at random and work on whichever affirmation we happen to land on. It’s an interesting approach, though I admit I prefer choosing my affirmations in a more conscious manner. The “at random” method might be more useful for those just getting started with affirmations. Also, if I’m being totally honest, only a small portion of the affirmations really inspired me. That said, I still enjoyed reading through them all. And I do plan on applying the journal and meditation techniques to deepen my connection to my own affirmations in the future.

Overall, this is a nice book for anyone curious about integrating affirmations into their self-care practice. The actual affirmations might not be of much use for those with an already-existing practice, but the methods for going more deeply into personal affirmations are well worth the read.

I Affirm My Power is an effective daily guide that helps readers connect with themselves on a soul level. With the use of affirmations, rituals, self-love practices and more, you’ll feel more aligned as each chapter goes on. The information is simple and easy to follow, which makes this book perfect for those who are new to spiritual practices. The illustrations also add a beautiful touch. Thank you to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for this eARC in exchange for my honest review.

A simple but charming book of speaking affirmations over your life, creating rituals and habits to create the life you desire. It's a great tool to add to a spiritual practice, or a personal development practice, offering journaling prompts, affirmations, and guidelines. I enjoyed this book and can see the benefit of adding this to my daily practice.
