From our reviewer, Vidya Sury:

Written and illustrated by Connie Bowen, “I Create My World; the Power of Thought to Shape Our Lives: A Book of Affirmations” is a beautiful book of affirmations that gently nudges us to use the power of thought to shape our lives. As someone familiar with the Law Of Attraction, I found myself nodding in agreement as I turned the pages. Connie reaffirms that we hold the key to our destiny and can attract the outcomes we want, leading to a life of fulfillment.

The book encourages the reader to have faith in herself, urging her to acknowledge her unique talent. Reading the affirmations brought on a sense of serenity.

As soon as I downloaded the book I feasted my eyes on the brightly colored visuals and couldn’t wait to ask my 15-year-old son to join me and enjoy it together. My son is a talented artist and has been sketching from the age of three, and I knew he would love this. He did.

I had the privilege of studying in a school where we had a “values” class where we would listen to inspiring stories with a moral. We were also encouraged to narrate real life incidents and describe what we learned from them. Connie’s book is a lovely way to teach children to recognize their own strength while cultivating their sense of self-esteem, making them feel worthy. Doing this at an early age can mold a child’s belief system, steering them along the path to positivity.

Fueling the imagination

I enjoy being with children and love the way they are always brimming with ideas. Show them a picture and they will come up with their own beautiful interpretation of it. Connie’s paintings with each affirmation in her book are filled with fun characters that will inspire children to craft their own story, limited only by their imagination. Here’s a look at some pages in the book:

  • I can picture what I want to create– using visualization to make our dreams come true
  • My imagination lifts me higher– we are blessed with unlimited imagination and we can use this to manifest what we want
  • I focus on what I love– focusing on the positive, attracting love
  • I am thankful for the bounty of the universe– an attitude of gratitude and appreciation for the abundance we receive from the universe
  • In giving, I receive– experiencing the benefits of the joy of giving
  • My thoughts overflow with loving kindness– showing kindness and love and encouraging others to reciprocate the same way
  • The universe is fun, safe and loving– the world is full of love and the universe cherishes us unconditionally
  • All is well– Just saying out loud “All is well” opens up a world of possibilities
  • I hold the keys that create my world.– Our words and thoughts mold our experience
  • I follow the light of my inner joy – We were born to be joyful. Remembering that the path to joy will lead us to a fulfilling life

I grew up believing in the power of positive thought, and reading this 38 page book packed with imaginative and cheerful paintings was a treat. The affirmations accompanying each painting are just the sort I would use to create posters and put them up in the most visible spots for ongoing inspiration.

Everything about the book exudes a positive feeling.

When I asked Connie what inspired her to create this beautiful book, she said,

I painted the collection of whimsical paintings that comprise I Create My World, each with their own characters and interesting story, for a child to interpret using their unlimited imagination. I enjoyed making them, and it was fun and challenging thinking up new and interesting images. After I had collected quite a few, I put them safely under my desk and moved on to other creative pursuits. Fast forward years later when I was working with affirmations and theories of the law of attraction.

One day, on my early morning walk, I had been repeating affirmations while concentrating on picturing the life I wanted to create. Soon after, I was enjoying the warm water of my morning shower when into my mind popped the words “The paintings under your desk go with those affirmations.” I had not been thinking about those paintings, and they would still be under my desk to this day, except for those words.

The ebook “I Create My World” is the final result of pairing those paintings with affirmations that encapsulate what I’ve learned in my spiritual studies.

Connie’s creative process includes meditation and connecting with her inner guidance. She believes in staying in tune with herself, only working on something if it feels exciting and fun. To quote her, “All days are meant for joy and laughter. Follow your creative whims – they lead you not astray – for as you follow, you will be led – to still more of the truest bounty – the richest being Love.”

Connie recommends encouraging children to let their imagination run free as they enjoy each illustration in the book. Coming up with their own affirmation based on their interpretation of the image can be fun. The next step is to let them create their own affirmations and illustrations and displaying them around the home!

To the right is something my son created – he is writing a story around it!

Connie’s first book “I Believe In Me” was listed in Huffington Post’s 50 Inspiring Children’s Books with a Positive Message.

I recommend this book – and hope that the author will introduce a print version.
