Review: Dear Universe is a book I will return to again and again. I have the good fortune of knowing Sarah Prout and her husband Sean. We met as co-authors of a book about manifesting that was published by their publishing company several years ago. Sarah is as close to a human unicorn as they come. She endured a decade of domestic violence and poverty as a single mother, until she began to harness the power of manifesting. Over the last decade, I have personally watched her marry her true love, start a wildly successful business, and give birth to two miracle babies with a health condition that shouldn’t have allowed her to become pregnant at all. My favorite part about Sarah Prout is that she is not all rainbows and sunbeams. She is very authentic and real about her journey, and her imperfections. She is known for the catch phrase “When shit hits the fan, it’s all part of the plan”. All of that being said, when I ordered this book, I expected to find another self help book, one that I would read and file away on my bookshelf because it’s so darn pretty. What I found instead is a guide that can be used daily to help you identify your emotions, what may be causing that emotion, and how to raise your vibration from that space, into one that will support your most powerful manifestations. This book is right up there with Louise Hay’s “You can heal your life” in terms of it’s ability to help you over and over again and in all different situations. Sarah is a true gift to the the world of mothers, motivational speakers, authors and glitter lovers. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.
