Ani Trime’s Little Book of Affirmations: 52 Illustrated Practices for a Peaceful and Open Mind

Every thought I think
is creating my future.”

I was really impressed with this collection of affirmations when I got it.  An affirmation is defined as: emotional support or encouragement.  There is one for every week of the year, so you can do it for a week then change to a new one.  They have two lines, you repeat one while inhaling, and the other while exhaling.  I found this really soothing, with a meditation like feeling.

The illustrations were colorful and pleasing that go along with the affirmations.  I’ve included four of the illustrations at the bottom below. This would make a good book for anyone wanting to learn more about the subject, or who is ready to use affirmations for positivity, mood improvement, etc. Advance electronic review copy was provided by NetGalley, author Ani Trime, and the publisher.
