book descriptions:


beloved. you're enough.




all 155 addressed to you. for you. to see you as you are. no filters needed. no expectations on you except for you to be you. for you to deeply know this knowing. that this moment and the previous moment and the one that just momented understands you. loves you. mirrors you even when you don't want to or can't or won't look at your reflection.

allow these notes to find you and fill you when you feel everything and nothing. when you're at the top or bottom or somewhere in-between. when re-calibrating and you just want to sit in your own peace in your own grace in your own company and be.

add this to your soundtrack. your heartlist. your playlist. and listen to the beautiful harmonies and melodies and sync and sink into the sonic energy of this loving mantra dedicated to you: beloved. you're enough.

this is adrian michael's 22nd book.
