Book Review Post #1

Thank you Netgalley for the ARC

I’m not sure that the title of this book syncs with the overall intention or message. In fact, I’m a little confused about what the overall point is. I don’t think it’s manifestation or abundance – two avenues I’m well versed in. I think it’s more about the keys to living a fulfilled and happy life. It is a mix of psychology and spirituality and while it delves at a surface level into ‘material abundance’, it does speak to overall abundance.

But… does it? It is kind of just giving tips on how to be a good human, in sync with the universe. Would it be my go-to book for living a fulfilled life? No. Would I say that I found the workbook activities to be satisfying? No, not really. But it was a quick read (one hour and a bit) and I definitely wouldn’t say I’m disappointed just… surprised at the multiple directions it went in. Would I buy it or read it again? Sadly, no.

2/5 Stars

Thank you Netgalley for the ARC

For someone who has absolutely no history with Feng Shui, I found this book very informative especially in regard to selling up the layout to how it works. It is not only about rearranging your home but your mindset. 

I think the layout of the book could use a little work. I didn’t really understand the jump into the “Congratulations you have a personal activation ritual!” without really laying out how or why, but that might be an editing error.

This book also touches on numerous other spirituality practices that can coexist with Feng Shui. 

I found the Elemental Energy section to be very overwhelming and disorganized.

I do like that the author lays out Feng Shui rules but says there is no need to adhere to them if something doesn’t sit with you. It makes the process less intimidating. 

I particularly liked the ‘Home Hot Spots’ section because it is not only very simple and informative – this section covers “enhanc[ing] these hot spots to raise your energy and increase happiness in your life.” I think if I was to have just one Feng Shui book on my bookshelf, this might be it.

4/5 Stars
