A Book Review
Daily Rituals: Positive Affirmations to Attract Love, Happiness and Peace is one of 8 books (at the time of writing) by Phoebe Garnsworthy (Instagram handle @lost_nowhere), a visionary and metaphysical writer from Australia.
This book offers a variety of simple, yet effective, daily rituals to begin your day with positivity. Each ritual is broken down into 3 subsections - define, exercise, and journal - each with its own purpose to elevate the ritual and help you get the most out of what you’re doing. Aside from the daily rituals, this book offers some insight on creating an altar, the elements (what they represent within ourselves and how they can be represented on the altar), and a variety of “personal notes”, including self-love reminders, “I am” affirmations, activities for both the full and new moon, and morning ritual ideas.
I personally bought this book on a whim, as I had seen it floating around on pinterest. Though I’ve only used it maybe a handful of times, I really enjoy the accessibility of each of the rituals included, and how each subsection of the ritual offers a deeper experience as to what that ritual for the day is.
What I like about this book, though it’s short and sweet, the rituals included offer a wonderful addition to any morning routine. As well, as I typically don’t have a lot of time in the mornings, having the option to do only a short exercise, or if I have more time, some journaling, is a great way to get in tune with myself and start the day on a high note.
What I don’t like about this book is perhaps the relatively small amount of ritual opens (about 30 in total), and how the instructions request you to flip to a page at random and do that ritual. The reasoning behind this is, believe it or not, the very first 2 times I used this book, I ended up flipping to the exact same ritual.
Overall, I think this book offers a great variety of simple yet effective rituals that anyone can do to start their day off right. I would recommend this book to those looking to have a more grounded and focussed addition to their morning routine.
