Feed your inner spirit with hope, happiness, love, dreams, idealism and optimism even as you struggle with everyday challenges.
Peace Dreamer encourages you to never give up on yourself or the world, no matter how messy life becomes. True activism begins in our core. Our soul of souls. It begins from inside-out.
Let it begin now for you.
Cheryl is correct; this world needs more acts of love and kindness. We need to stand together. Be united. Embrace inclusiveness.
Cheryl talks about many subjects in the book: Covid-19, George Floyd, and the last presidential election, to name a few. Each of these events caused a rift in society. Hate was the emotion filling up many souls. We judged each other. She admitted to judging others when it came to the masks. Her journal entries were honest and reflected a person’s true feelings regarding turbulent times. Cheryl encourages peace and healing of the world through love. We need more peace in the streets, in our government, and behind closed doors (schools, businesses, grocery stores, etc.)
Cheryl Melody Baskin spoke about chakras in-depth. I admit I knew of the word, but I couldn’t tell you which charka went to what body parts, color, purpose, etc. Therefore, the sections dedicated to this topic intrigued me incredibly. I learned much from her. Thank you, Cheryl, for educating me.
Cheryl also surprised me with the song lyrics. She is a talented songwriter. BTW: I did find a couple of her songs on Youtube. I couldn’t sing in front of a crowd, so I applaud anyone who can.
Cheryl listed several questions for you to answer if you decide to start a journal. If you’re not a journal-keeping person, maybe consider mentally answering them instead. I did.
There is so much inside the book, too much for me to cover in one review: examples of positive affirmations, self-care reminders, and stories from the “Shift of Heart” Facebook community. I could’ve read their contributions for hours. <3
I highly recommend those reading this review to read Peace Dreamer: A Journey of Hope in Bad Times and Good.
Let’s all work together to live a more peaceful life—internally and externally.

To Kam and Kam’s Place, Thank you so much for your beautifully in-depth review of my book, “Peace Dreamer.” I saw your review on Amazon, too. Thank you for placing it on there as well and all the time, energy and thought you gave to your review. I am so glad that many sections in the book spoke to your mind, spirit and heart, and I am especially glad you got a lot out of the chakra sections. I am a teacher most of all, and I love finding a way to make a complicated subject user-friendly for me, for you and for all the readers. The quote you chose to feature at the beginning of your review warmed my heart. Thank you so much for really breathing in all the intentions I had for sharing my own journey with love, peace and hope. The quote: “Every positive action that shines love and stands for love is all that is needed to create a compassionate and inclusive world. The time is now to elevate humanity to a new awakening.” – Cheryl Melody Baskin, Author of “Peace Dreamer: A Journey of Hope in Bad Times and Good”
You’re most welcomed.
Best of luck to you.
Really nice cover and excerpt, looking forward to reading this!
