These are hard times we’re living in. It wouldn’t be possible to review a Star Wars book about self-reflection and finding inner peace without first acknowledging that fact. No matter how the past few years have impacted you or those around you, all of us have seen the many ways the world has changed and continues to shift with every passing day. Now, more than ever, we need books like Inner Jedi: A Guided Journal for Training in the Light Side of the Force to keep us grounded.

Brought to us by Insight Editions, this Star Wars-themed guided journal is crafted as if it were a tool for Jedi in training within a galaxy far, far away. The book uses core principles of the ways of the Jedi, fundamental philosophies of peacemaking and selflessness that define what it means to be a master of the light side of the Force. Every day, the journal offers space to write down instances in which you, a “Jedi in training” acted peacefully and selflessly. And every week, you’re prompted to reflect on your goals and how operating under the core principles of the Jedi might help you achieve these goals.

Each pages offers more than enough space to jot down thoughts, ideas, and reflections throughout the day. Whether you’re going through a tough time at school or at your job or things are pretty OK but you want to stay present through better times, it’s the perfect place to keep a log of feelings, hopes, and desires as if you’re really a Force-user just trying to make your way peacefully through the galaxy.

Sure, you could purchase any plain notebook or journal to store your thoughts in. But Inner Jedi is beautifully designed, Star Wars-themed, and has some beautiful art scattered throughout. And if that’s not enough to convince you, it also includes coloring meditations. So if you do your best self-reflection with art, this is definitely the journal for you.

Don’t let the state of the world drag you down. Let the true philosophies of the Jedi lift you up, even on your hardest days.
