Everyone who knows me know that books are a huge part of my life. Everything anyone could ever hope to learn is found in a book, somewhere. On my spiritual quest for truth and understanding, books have been my best friend, providing me with answers, comfort and food for thought.
Finding the right book at the right time however isn't always easy.
Here's a list of books that have helped me on my journey.
(I'll keep this list up to date as i burn through the mountains of books at my bedside... look for book reviews in my blog!)
What the BLEEP do we Know?!
This movie and the book have sparked more 4 am conversations than you can imagine. WATCH IT. READ IT. SHARE IT. It'll change your life!
The Four Agreements - Don Miguel Ruiz
Four simple rules for enlightenment and peace. So simple, so transformative. I've read this one several times, and always take something different from it.
The Voice of Knowledge - Don Miguel Ruiz
We perceive "ourselves" through the eyes of what we know, and who's to say anything we know is true? Helps us find our way to our Authentic Selves. Again, a small book of simple, profound truth.
Anatomy of the Spirit - Caroline Myss, PH.D
This book literally fell into my hands at a used book store years ago, and my life has never been the same. A no- nonsense that spells out how the Hindu Chakras, Christian sacraments and the Kabbalah's Tree of Life mirror the centers of our physical and spiritual power - our Chakras. Loved seeing the similarities between faiths and the patterns between them and our bodies. Amazing.
Invisible Acts of Power - Caroline Myss, PHD
Even a kind word for the right person at the right time can be a miracle in someone's life. Makes you stop and think about how easy it is to do good.
Soul Moments - Phil Cousineau
This book was an answer to years of prayers. There are no such thing as coincidences! Synchronicity and meaningful coincidences have been a huge part of my life. Nothing is as random as it may feel.
The Field - Lynne McTaggart
Science and the spirituality I've come to know help explain each other. This book explains both. LOVE.
The Power of Now - Eckhart Tolle
It's another re-reader. Brings so much PEACE.
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success / Yoga - Deepak Chopra
Such simple, profound truth. These books are a MUST read.
Rational Mysticism - John Horgan
Science writer exploring 'mysticism', explaining the scientific hows and whys of it ESP and such. Makes the things I could never make sense of, make sense. If that makes any sense??
In defense of Food and The Food Rules - Michael Pollan
EVERYONE MUST READ THESE BOOKS! So simple. If a third grader cant spell it, dont eat it. Buy your food local and organic, or, if you shop at a supermarket, never shop for things in the aisles. The healthy stuff is along the outside walls. Awesome eh?
Women Food and God - Geneen Roth
So many women suffer from eating disorders and other manifestations of self hatred because of how they look. This was an enlightening look at WHY.
The Spontaneous Fulfilment of Desire - Deepak Chopra
More synchronicity chatter. <3
The Divine Matrix - Gregg Braden
Another piece that made it all fit... WHY the power of attraction works, why synchronicity exists, how prayer works, WHY we must love our neighbor as ourself. Amazing.
Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer - Gregg Braden
It's not what you ask for, it's how you ask for it.
The Answer - John Assaraf & Murray Smith
Cause all we really want is the answer, am I right?
"What the Dog Saw", "The Tipping Point", "Outliers", and "Blink" - Malcolm Gladwell
Fascinating stuff that changes your perspective on how this world works.
