Are you being compared to your talented siblings? Do you struggle to keep up with your classmates or your colleagues? Are you trying to change your appearance or forcing yourself to do things you don't like? Do you know that you are fine the way you are, so there is no need for you to become someone else? If you are still unable to convince yourself, let Gabriela Romaria show you how to do it in her book. It's called Heal your inner child, 30 mandalas, positive affirmations, 30 secret codes, Vol1: A healing book for adults and children, a coloring book with activities to help you grow and heal your heart.
One of the best parts of this copy is that you can use it as you please. As the title suggests, it contains 30 mandalas, 30 affirmations, and 30 secret codes for you to use in a month. You may color a mandala while reciting a sanguine statement to your inner self. You may attempt to decode one of the author's codes to see her messages. You may list things that make you happy or ideas to support your own healing.
For example, tell yourself that it's alright if you are not as outstanding as your friends. You are allowed to be different from other people, so you just need to respect yourself and listen to your heart. In addition, the provided statements are not very religious, meaning you don't have to rely on spiritual support. Anyone will benefit from these assurances.
On the downside, I don't really like the layout. It's a bit too colorful for adults, and it has a lot of cartoon characters. The mandalas in the DOC file I received are also overwritten by some of those drawings. If you want to download the mandalas in PDF format, you will have to access the author's website and ask for permission. In my opinion, this is quite inconvenient. I hope the Kindle version will be better. Besides, I think the inner child's gender should be more neutral, as the author refers to them as male in this volume.
I will rate this tome 4 out of 4 stars. This is because it is quite useful, and the above negative aspects are not enough to deduct a star. The editing is considerably good. With no profane words and sexual details, this copy is suitable for readers of all ages. I would recommend this to those who wish to cheer themselves up and try to live positively. If you want to overcome your pains and strive to be a better person, you can do it! Let's be honest and keep our optimistic visions.
