I loved this book so much!
Some books come to us when we need to hear something specific, and this book was exactly that: It came exactly when I needed it most.
When I started this book and I got through the first chapters, I thought this would be a pretty simple self-development book. Just because I’ve already read about the things the author was talking about – such as affirmations, for example.
But as the book progresses, I started to read about things that really spiked my interest and curiosity. One of these topics was on how we create our own diseases with our negative emotions such as frustration and anger. Not only that but she also talked about how the affected organs and side of the body are also not coincidental. This was really interesting to me and I immediately thought “I need to read more about this topic”! I’m hoping her other books talk more about this.
It’s a very positive, feel-good book! Even if you don’t take everything it preaches, I guarantee you’ll still find something here that you can take with you.
Louise seems like an awesome, warm person and I’m very excited to take a look at her other books! Definitely worth it.
