Product Description

A Book of Affirmations

How I Believe In Me began. . . . .

When my son, Matthew, turned one year old, I began looking for a book for him to teach him of his inner greatness and the power within him to achieve his highest potential. I began to feel the book I was looking for had not yet been created. I worked all that summer illustrating affirmations and collected them into a book for Matt with drawings that would appeal to a very young child. I was guided to send my manuscript to a pubilsher and 14 months later my manuscript was approved and published! I have since retired from my career as a court reporter and devote full-time to illustrating positive books for children.—Connie Bowen


"I am safe"

This drawing and affirmation came about one morning when I was getting ready for work. I looked down at my infant son sleeping peacefully and felt sad that I would be taking him to daycare for a few hours. I announced to myself "I wish I could put you in a bubble of love!"


"I am one with all life"

I included this drawing and affirmation in the book because I feel we're all a part of Nature. This affirmation can be the beginning of a discussion with children about the importance of cherishing the animal kingdom and our environment.


"I am loving"

Every child needs to understand their true nature is one of loving kindness. I was up very late working on this drawing into the wee hours of the morning. I had wanted to put drapes around the top of the illustration and started to carefully draw them in. I was so tired, I ended up just putting shapes instead and coloring them in with bright colors! The overall effect turned out to be very interesting ~ someone was definitely watching over me in the creation of this book!

"We really enjoyed the book, I Believe In Me. It is tremendous. Thank you for your being." —Gerald Jampolsky, M.D., Sausalito Center for Attitudinal Healing, author of Love is Letting Go of Fear.

"When students arrive at our classes, they can hardly hold their heads up. Your book helps them walk out of here with heads held high." —Kathy Dawson, Executive Director, Laubach Literacy Council, Kansas City.

"There is a new book that is pretty different, and that's a good thing. It has lots of pictures, and only a few words on each page. But it's not a silly book. The few words on the page are called affirmations. You know how some days you just don't feel very good about yourself. Especially if someone makes you mad or sad. Well, if you use this book and read the words on the page, and look at the pictures, you start to feel better.

There is a page that says, 'I'm whole and perfect just the way I am.' Well I don't always feel perfect. But when you read the words and look at the pictures, you do feel ppretty good. One reason is because the picture is a kid looking in a mirror at himself. The mirror is held by his guardian angel. How can you feel bad when your guardian angel is caring about you?

Some of the pages I don't always understand. My grandma makes me talk it through with her. Like the page of 'I am Powerful.' It shows a huge animal with horns and a kid on top of the animal. Well how can you feel powerful with a scary animal around and you are just a kid. I felt better after I talked it through. I'm bigger than my brother and sister and I protect them. I pay attention in school most of the time which makes me smarter each day.

See it really is a different book - and a good one. There is a different way to read it too. My grandma says to just read one page and then let yourself think about what it means. Then the next day you can read another page. It's probably going to take a year to read it!" —Christopher Thornhill, Age 10; a review from the Awareness Magazine, Garden Grove, California.

About Connie Bowen

I began drawing at an early age and majored in art at Washington State University. I then completed training and worked for 23 years as a freelance court reporter.

Since retiring from court reporting in 1997, I have devoted full time to the loves of my life: my dear family, my art and the expression of Truth.

The creative process for me involves meditation and —connecting with my higher guidance. I can feel which direction my next project will take. I don't pursue a direction unless it feels fun and exciting to me to work on. If I start something and then I feel an urge to let it go and work on something else, I'll put it away and consider it finished for now. This works out really well for me. I follow my guidance and stay in tune with myself. It's true for me that I'm only —guided one step at a time and by staying in tune with myself, I stay in tune with the Divine.

In the words of my higher guidance, "All days are meant for joy and laughter. Follow your creative whims - they lead you not astray - for as you follow, you will be led - to still more of the truest bounty - the richest being Love."
