‒Christina Rasmussen, bestselling author of Second Firsts
"As Vironika shared her own story, I saw pieces of myself and pieces of the people I care about. Many times the book brought me to tears and I had to put it down. It was like looking in the mirror and there was a part of me that was used to not looking."
"If I had two words to describe The Love Mindset, they would be: fresh and powerful. This is because when I read it, something grabbed hold of me like it was the first time I'd seen a book in 5 years!"
‒Reuben Lowe, Mindful Creation
"Vironika Tugaleva's The Love Mindset is an authentic, brave and beautiful guide to a more loving self and a more loving world. A great gift of words for anyone searching for the sacred place of self-acceptance, self-understanding and self-love."
‒Howard Falco, spiritual teacher and author of I AM: The Power of Discovering Who You Really Are
"In the midst of turmoil, this book comes as a breath of fresh air. It shows us how to have a peaceful life filled with long-lasting happiness."
From the Author
I do not think it is a coincidence that many of the reviewers say they've re-read the material, earmarked the pages, and highlighted their favourite parts. I have too. While the chapters are easily readable in a day or two, the lessons within will return to you for years to come.
I know, personally, how helpful this book can be if read over and over. I would encourage that for all its readers. Read it, engage with it, bring it to your life. After all, this is a book about you - and you're always here, in every moment.
As one reviewer said, "This isn't just something nice to read when you have time. This book is a must."
I do not share this with you out of ego, though I know it will look that way to some. I don't know if I believe that I am truly responsible for this book. I am only responsible for bringing it here. The lessons within are eternal and your deepest wisdom can be the judge.
I wrote this book to make the world a better place, one peaceful mind at a time. I hope one of those minds is yours. Each healed mind is another bright, shining light in the future of humanity. Don't give up on yourself. Keep on walking. Keep on reading. Keep on shining. You matter.
More About the Author
Vironika's work helps people cultivate self-love, heal mental and emotional suffering, develop healthy self-care habits, build deeper relationships with others, and unleash their inner potential to change the world.
Vironika is a different kind of teacher for a new generation. She doesn't wear makeup on her face and doesn't cover up her humanity. She openly speaks about her failures, imperfections, and struggles.
She says, "Admitting my imperfections and trusting my intuition has led me to some life-changing conversations, many happy tears, and a lifetime of memories that I wouldn't trade for the world. Memories that make me smile and, each day, help me realize that, maybe, people are ready for a leader who's human. Maybe they're ready for me."
Vironika's experience did not come from any university, organization, church, or school of thought. Her wisdom flowered out of her recovery from a decade-long struggle with mental health, addiction, eating disorders, and profound self-hatred.
Having pulled herself out of the clutches of mental distress and profound suffering, Vironika strongly believes in the power, as well as the responsibility, within each person to do what she has done - to heal themselves and go on to heal the world.
On this journey that continues every single day, Vironika continues to create valuable resources for people on the journey of self-discovery. Whether she's writing an article or coaching one-on-one, she uses her youthful energy, down-to-earth wisdom, and real-world experience to help people radically transform their relationships with themselves, each other, and life itself.
Vironika will not call herself an expert. She believes that, deep within, we all have the antidote to our own suffering and the key to the door of our own happiness. She believes in being a guide, not a guru. She helps people become the experts on themselves.
If you feel like you're too broken to fix, hold out your last shred of hope and give Vironika a try. She won't disappoint you. She will teach you about the power of love, the purpose of life, and the potential of people united. She will show you to yourself.

As I read chapter after chapter, all her descriptions, stories, explanations made a lot of sense intellectually. I was able to understand but had no idea what to do, where to start the practice of self-love.
I reached out to her from her website and managed to get in touch and she is a lovely person. I would go so far as to state that she is one of my guardian angels, sent by the Universe at the right time and at the right place. She was warm, infinitely graceful and welcoming and listened to me without judgement. That kind of safe sanctity to be vulnerable is a treasure simply because it is so rare. And because I cherish it so much, to me, it is a gift to share with everyone I come into contact with - to be infinitely kind, gentle and respectful of them - to love them exactly as they are.
One thing I definitely like is her description of her thought process through her stories, how she felt, what she did, the things that went through her mind. I could relate to everything because I am human too, and when you read her stories, you will relate to it too because everyone has gone through those thoughts and emotions to some degree. So this book will help you, even if you are not on a path of self-love because this is knowledge that will benefit everyone.
Her book convinced me that love is truly the only way to live. It heals, it strengthens, it nourishes and it is always, always gentle. To act without love brings about destruction. To live life without loving yourself brings destruction TO YOURSELF. Simple concept but it made everything else start to make sense to me.Read more ›
One of my favorite quotes from the book for me was, "For me, self-loathing was a permanent state of mind. It was my mindset. I was completely focused on feeding poison, and only poison, into the roots of my mind. "
Lots of insights throughout the book that really grab your attention.
Definitely worth reading, and it will alter the way you see things.
Written in lucid, conversational style The Love Mindset convinces you that love heals all wounds. I personally believe this – although I did not always believe it. Experience is a good teacher, and the author, Vironika shares her own journey of spiritual awakening after a decade long mental health crisis.
As you turn the pages and read the words you may see yourself reflected in them, experiencing again, those feelings you never acknowledged or were too afraid to. Only this time, you’ll find yourself emerging victorious, overcoming whatever held you back from healing yourself.
Through The Love Mindset, Vironika guides us through the process of finding and keeping love and happiness in our lives. She urges us to awaken to our inner strength. Why try to be someone you aren’t?
The best message from the book is this: the power of love and using it to find ourselves. The love mindset is like a compass that always points to love. If you’ve struggled with the pain of isolation, loneliness, and self-destruction this book will help you heal.
I enjoyed Vironika’s analogies throughout the book.
I recommend this book!
I enjoyed that Vironika employs different teaching strategies in order to help you understand what she is trying to convey. She uses herself as an example throughout the book, which makes her easy to relate to, and her words acted like a mirror for me. They reflected back how the symptoms of a lack of love manifest in my life and how they affect me. In this book, Vironika provides guidance on how to overcome this.
She also uses analogies to make the material more memorable, and this cemented my ability to absorb what she was explaining. For example, she compares human beings to plants in that we both need certain things to live and grow. Just like plants need sunlight and water, we need love in order to flourish. She presents a fresh way to perceive love versus the way we have been conditioned to think about it (i.e. the myth of love scarcity). She teaches that love isn’t something you obtain only when the circumstances are right, but rather that love is as accessible and abundant as the air around us. One of my favourite quotes from the book, which gives you a nice glimpse into what it covers, is: “Love awareness is a state of mind that involves perceiving love as we drift through life, moment to moment.Read more ›
