Be Your Higher Self: a book review

Be Your Higher Self

by Samesh Ramjattan

Published August 22, 2018

Published by Matador

Be Your Higher Self is a short self-help book with a New Age feel. The cover is beautiful; the contents are okay. Ramjattan covers a lot of ground in brief chapters.

The book begins with a call to recognize yourself as a spiritual human being made of the same cosmic dust as everything and everyone else. From there the discussions flow to ego, masculine/feminine energy balance, age of aquarius, karma through reincarnation, chakras, and advice for healing, including breathing exercises, mantras, meditation, and diet, to name a few. It even offers examples via a few pop culture references to The Matrix, Groundhog Day, and Field of Dreams.

Be Your Higher Self didn’t quite hit the mark for me. It is a physically gorgeous book with interesting information, but not much that truly resonated with me.

Disclaimer: I received an advance-read copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I used Amazon affiliate links in this post. Should you choose to buy something through those links, you will not pay any extra, but they will send me a small fee, which I will likely add to my book fund. Thank you.
