About Me

Who is S G Ruddy?

S G Ruddy is a spiritual and self help writer from Northern Ireland, his aim and intention is simple; to inspire and empower his readers to become their best and most empowered selves, allowing them to not only consistently live in peace and on purpose, but to find healing, lasting joy, unconditional love and to begin to recognise their true power and potential.

How did  '@aMessageOfLove' come about?

Inspired by his own spiritual journey, and battle with OCD, Simon set up a self help and self empowerment page on Instagram (@amessageoflove) in 2014 to help and support other people who were facing similar issues as him, which has since garnered over 70,000 followers from all over the world.


It is those inspiring messages which make up the book - Messages to Inspire, Empower and Heal - A Message Of Love Book 1.


What is the book about?

Messages to Inspire, Empower and Heal is a self help and spiritual help book unlike any other. It has no particular order, how you use it is up to you.

It contains over 500 messages (which is 4 years of posts from the @aMessageOfLove page) featuring a wide range of topics, showcased in a random yet organised manner, allowing you the reader to find your own message of love daily. The possibilities are endless.

Each message in the book offers a concise, condensed yet in-depth and easy to understand message. The book overall offers a no nonsense guide to becoming your best self and giving you the information that you need to live your best life.

What topics does the book cover?

It contains a wide range of topics, such as:

  • Self Confidence & Self Belief
  • Healing & Forgiveness
  • Failure & Success
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Self Esteem & Self Worth
  • Self Love & Self Care
  • The Power of Appreciation

  • 'Law of Attraction' Help 
  • Grief & Loss Support
  • Healthy Limits & Boundaries
  • Moving beyond Over-thinking
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Healthy Money Beliefs
  • Taking action & Rising Up
  • and Much, Much more...

BONUS: The book also contains a glossary of what the most common spiritual terms mean (such as higher self, inner being, vibrational alignment) and the backstory of how the aMessageOfLove page came about, including how I come up with the messages.

Tips on how to get the most out of the book:

One of the best ways to use it is by:

  1. Closing your eyes, breathing deeply and asking your Higher Self / The Universe / God for help, clarity or guidance with a particular situation or issue,  or asking the universe to highlight a certain area that you need to work upon,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
  2. Then opening up the book at a random place and reading the first message that you see, or simply flicking through the book and stopping at a place that feels 'right' to you. You could even ask your spiritual guides for a number and then read the first message that you see on that particular page number. 

You can even use the random page number generator below to find a page number to read.

This book is seriously one of my favorites! No matter what I’m struggling with or going through, this book always seems to have the right message for me.

This book is beyond fantastic! After following Simon Ruddy on Instagram for some time, and realising that his daily posts seemed to be exactly what I needed to hear at the time, I decided to buy his book. Each one of his insights holds a gem of inspiration for me. Highly recommend!

Wow wow and wow!!

It is an amazing read reminding you how to continue loving yourself in different ways, outside of the box and inside the box - Living my best life all over again.

For the price of one coffee you can help to keep this website running.

It costs over $500 US Dollars annually to keep this website online, and over $400 US Dollars to make the graphic posts that feature on the aMessageOfLove page (which is the cost for the annual graphic design program used to make the posts).
