My Review

Peace Dreamer Is a Quick Read that Readers Will Want to Revisit. The author's writing style is very light and easy to understand. With short chapters and highlighted takeaways, she really gives readers a lot to think about in a short time. Having said that, I know the lists of helpful tips and suggestions that will keep me coming back to revisit the pages from time to time as I begin to explore the ideas in more depth.


The Author Offers Lots of Useful Information in an Easy to Understand Manner. Readers will find some personal stories from the author, individual snippets from others, worksheets to help discover some self-concepts, lists of suggestions and tips, and even an easy-to-understand breakdown of the chakras and an introduction to concepts of energy healing. I left the book feeling inspired to try some of Baskin's ideas and tips--and I went with an interest in further exploring chakra healing.


Readers will Find Thoughts Regarding Current Events Too.   I would be lying if I said that the outside influences of the past few years didn't affect my moods and feelings of peace and happiness! The author shares her tips and ideas toward more peace-filled days--as well as some of her personal journal entries and thoughts she encountered during the political, social, health, and general ups and downs since 2020.


Would I Recommend Peace Dreamer by Cheryl Melody Baskin? Peace Dreamer isn't a super-structured "do this in this order" kind of self-help book. Some self-discovery exercises allow readers to begin their journeys--and many tips and suggestions join to help readers along. I found the layout and flow of this book to be very inspirational, and while it isn't judgmental (we all struggle to be peace-filled at times)--it is motivational in that she gently shows the values and rewards of living life with more peace and hope. I would recommend this book for those seeking a slightly different lens into restructuring (or finding) life's happiness--especially those who have been struggling a bit more since 2020 changed so many of our lives.
