Much has been written about the power of positive thinking and affirmations as tools to a better life. We may not be able to control the world around us, but we can control our thoughts, so why not choose positive ones? Another argument for positive thinking is that it sends out a happier vibration, and since most cats tend to pick up their humans’ energy, cleaning up your thoughts doesn’t just benefit you, it will also make your cats happy.
With I Create My World: The Power of Thoughts to Shape Our Lives, artist Connie Bowen has created a wonderful little book filled with affirmations and colorful, whimsical paintings. Even though the book is not a cat book, there are a couple of adorable cat paintings featured, which is why I decided to share this little gem of a book with you.
The book is aimed at children, and it’s a great way to introduce young children to the concept of positive thinking and affirmations, but I think adults will be equally delighted by this lighthearted approach to the topic. I can’t help but believe that the combination of the words and the colorful images create a positive vibration just by looking through this book.
“By repeating the affirmations in this book, we focus our thoughts on the highest vibrations of gratitude, harmony, and love,” writes Bowen in the foreword to the book. With an affirmation like the one above, accopanied by an adorable kitty, how could you go wrong?
I also love the affirmation of letting your light shine brightly ever day and the painting below. There’s just something so happy about the girl sitting by a sunny window with her cat.
I Create My World is available on Amazon for Kindle. It can also be read on an iPad, iPod, or iPhone through the iTunes store. If you don’t have an e-reader, you can read the book with the Amazon Cloud Reader, which is a free download.
