I am always on the lookout for a good book on spirituality or self-improvement. I love books in the New Thought genre and anything that gets me to overcome my self-limiting beliefs so that I can be a manifesting machine and also so that I can just be a happier person.
While I never ever get tired of reading books on the same subject because I always pick up something new from someone else’s perspective or way of explaining things, I’m totally picky on what I do read. Aren’t we all?
So I went through lots of books that were released this summer and a few that will be available later this month and September so I could share with you guys what’s on my reading list.
These are the six books that made the cut!
I am so so SO excited for this book. If you haven’t read Pam Grout’s other book, E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality, read that one now so you can get excited for this one. E-Squared is one of those books that I have completely highlighted in my Kindle and frequently scroll through to re-read.
It’s very encouraging, motivating, and I love the way she loves to play with the “invisible energy force.” This was one of the first books I came across when I was learning about the law of attraction and it really changed my life.
This new book of hers is being released at the end of this month (August 2016) and is going to be all about how gratitude connects you with the invisible energy field and manifests so much abundance for us. I…can’t….wait.
I love finding indie authors because so often their work is much more authentic and original since it hasn’t gone through a publishing house. I want to read this book because it’s all about how powerful affirmations are for creating change in your life.
I focused once on changing my beliefs around money by using affirmations and ever since, I’ve had a consistent and abundant flow of money coming into my life. Actually I still use certain money affirmations when I’m feeling anxious, like “It’s okay, the money is coming in now.” (I stole that one from Mike Dooley!).
The power of affirmations is no joke!
To be honest, I’ve never read one of Gabrielle Bernstein’s book, so I’m looking forward to this book so I can see for myself why she’s so popular. Have you? Let me know what you think in the comments section if you have.
I love the title of this book because it’s one of my own personal mantras, and the table of contents looks really intriguing: “Your Vibes Speak Louder Than Your Words, “Obstacles Are Detours in the Right Direction”, and “You Are Always Being Guided Even When It Doesn’t Feel Like It” are the chapters that caught my eye.
I’ve been a student of the law of attraction for the last 4 years and if there’s one thing I’ve come to learn it’s that financial abundance can’t manifest until I get rid of self-limiting beliefs.
Denise, the author of Get Rich, Lucky Bitch just recently shared advice on accepting passive income and that it mainly has to do with our mindset (her post: 4 Reasons You’re Resisting Passive Income).
One thing that is always a work in progress for me is overcoming my self-worth issues and money mindset. I notice that when I get over a hurdle in relation to my self-worth, my income increases a little bit. It keeps increasing as I keep releasing self-limiting beliefs and as I keep cultivating a deep love and respect for myself.
I think this book is going to be a very helpful and healing read.
As a writer, I really want to read this one! It’s about having the courage to pursue a creative career path and Doreen shares her writing process and a behind the scenes look at what it’s like to be self-employed in the creative field.
I love that this book has both spiritual and “earthly” career advice combined.
This book is written by a shamanic psychotherapist and it’s about how to use your own natural resources to get and stay well for life. What really drew me in was that in the table of contents; there are three main sections within the Getting Well portion of the book and they all revolve around healing your relationship with yourself, with others, and healing inner wounds.
There are SO many exercises in this book that I can’t wait to try, like calling back your energies, cutting energy ties in relationships, cutting energy ties in relationships from social media, cultivating gratitude for your body, and two exercises for grounding.
I like how relevant this is, like the relationships from social media; it’s something we all experience and don’t even realize it’s impact on us.
Honestly I kept getting chills while reading through all of her exercises, which are too many to list here, so I know that’s a sign I’m meant to read this book. This is going to be another very healing read.
So those are the books I’ll be adding to my Kindle. Let me know if you’ve read any of them yet and what you thought, and also let me know if I missed any great, new reads!
