The Manifestation Journal

by Amy E. Chace

208 Pages



I was sent a copy of “The Manifestation Journal” by Amy E. Chace to review. This book is a hybrid of a journal, planner and sketchbook. It was published by Red Feather Mind, Body, Spirit, of Schiffer Publishing, Ltd. It is a hardback book, about 6 inch by 9inch. Amy includes her own illustrations throughout this book. 

This book is described by the author as a “journal, a sketchbook, a planner, but mostly it’s a fun collaboration between you and me”. It has very little text and is mostly blank or patterned pages with her artwork adorning them. It has different graphics on each page. On a few pages is has some prompts, like “goals” or “the plan”, to encourage one to write. It also has some quotes sprinkled through the book. It has lots of room to use this as either a place to doodle or draw your own art, or to write poems or journal entries. Some pages are more sparse and some very busy with artwork covering most of the page.

If you are looking for a journal or sketchbook to help inspire you or to give you some ideas to get you started, this could be a good fit for you. If you like having doodles and some prompts inside your journal then I think you would enjoy this book.

The artwork is not for everyone, as art is subjective, so I encourage you to flip through this book first to make sure you vibe with this particular style of art. That it speaks to you. If it does and you are looking for this flavor of journal, then go for it. For me, I personally do not favor this type of book, I prefer something much more empty so i have more room for my own thoughts & creations. This artwork isn’t my particular taste either, though I do appreciate that many would enjoy it. I do feel $24.99 is a bit high for what you are getting. I would also prefer a bigger size book as well, but that is personal preference.

Overall I’d say if you look this book over and feel it will help you to manifest or create your own art or help you to write your dreams out, then jump on this book. For the right person this could be a very inspiring book.
