I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.The Book of Afformations by Noah St. John
Published by Hay House, Incorporated on 2013

Did you know that asking a new kind of question can immediately change your life? One morning in 1997, college student Noah St. John was in the shower when he asked himself a question that changed his life:
I mostly enjoyed this book because the idea of positive thinking is one that I’ve been working on for years. When I started I noticed that I really didn’t have ONE positive thought going through my head about my self, about my life, about everything. It is very difficult to live like that!
This starts by saying how are we supposed to just be happy with thoughts that are negating what we really think and feel? The examples for how to actually believe the afformations were easy to put into my life and pretty easy to start believing.
This goes into why we do the things we do and really delves deep into making you ask yourself this hard questions. Then helping you to figure out how to get what you really want. This is different from other positive affirming books that I’ve read and was easy to follow along and even easier to put his ideas into practice.
The down side was that I felt like I wanted a bit more. Once I understood the concept I wanted to go into something deeper. I noticed I was starting to get bored with the book instead of being really engaged like I was in the beginning.
In short: The ideas are good and the message is extremely positive and if you are someone that has trouble figuring out why they can’t actively make a change in their life, this might be for you!
