I was so excited to pick this book up as for the longest time ever I have felt like I was becoming quite vain in only really caring about what I looked like on the outside. As everyone always seems to say, first impressions matter and since I have started consuming so much YouTube and Instagram recently, I looked at so many beautiful people on there and I wanted to look beautiful too. I know, you might be wondering why? Well, I have always felt so out of place, I am constantly researching abstract concepts that my friends aren’t interested in talking about so I naturally turned towards things that everyone seems to care about which is outer beauty. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with caring what you look like or putting more effort into your everyday look, either it be makeup or clothes etc. However, it can get very toxic if you don’t have a balance between the outer beauty and inner beauty, and as I have recently become VERY interested in Pagan traditions and religious teachings, I have noticed that you have to care for yourself within as well as on the outside and that is what made me want to pick up this book. Well, that and the beautiful cover!
Anyway, let’s discuss the content of the book. My favourite parts were definitely the beginning of the book were Laurey introduces everything she is going to discuss and the pictures, the pictures are simply gorgeous and stunning to look at. The ritual parts are actually the ones that I ended up skim reading as I feel like it is best to read them when you feel like performing the ritual and actually using it in practice as it will have more meaning and sense to you. I support anyone that supports the use of crystals and everything else that Mother Earth provides us with and that is something that Laurey Simmons focuses on. I loved it, but I do wish there was a bigger focus on the actual tools you could have in your sacred space – I also feel like this sacred space is kind of like an alter as you keep crystals and other important beautiful things to look at.
If you are interested in inner beauty and using nature to heal yourself and make you feel more grounded and present then definitely give this book a go as I think you will definitely take something away from it. I am definitely glad I picked it up and that it is now in my collection as I definitely see myself going back to this to try out the rituals the author offered to us to implement into our lives.
See you in my next blog post 🙂
