6 New Spiritual Books I’m Excited to Read

6 new books on spirituality I can't wait to read!

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!

1. Thank & Grow Rich

Thank & Grow Rich: A 30-Day Experiment in Shameless Gratitude and Unabashed Joy

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.

2. Actually, I Can
Actually I Can

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!

3. The Universe Has Your Back

The Universe Has Your Back: Transform Fear to Faith

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.

4. Worthy

Worthy: Boost Your Self-Worth to Grow Your Net Worth

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.

5. The Courage to Be Creative

The Courage to Be Creative: How to Believe in Yourself, Your Dreams and Ideas, and Your Creative Career Path

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.

6. How to Be Well

How to Be Well: Use Your Own Natural Resources to Get Well and Stay Well for Life

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!

  1. Great list, thanks for sharing! 🙂 I’m looking forward to Gabrielle Bernstein’s new one. I’ve read her others and May Cause Miracles is my favourite. 2nd fave is Add More ~ing to your Life. You do exercises and meditations as you work through the books.

    I’d also like to read Rise Sister Rise. I read Light is the New Black a few months ago and enjoyed it. I didn’t know Pam Grout had a new book, thanks for letting me know! I read E-Squared a couple of months ago and I just finished E-Cubed. How to Be Well sounds good as well.

    • Ooh, I’ll have to check out May Cause Miracles and the other one you mentioned, I love exercises and meditations so that sounds like a good read. I figure she has to be a bestselling author for a reason. Yeah I’m really excited for Pam’s new book because I loved E-Squared so much. I’m reading How to Be Well right now, I’m really liking all of the exercises she has throughout the book. Yeah I’m interested to read Rise Sister Rise, Rebecca’s got an authentic-ness about her that I’m really drawn to.

  2. I’ve read Gabby Bernstein’s books as well. I believe she’s so popular because she’s easy for women our age to relate to. Also, like how Marianne Williamson has made A Course In Miracles easier to understand by explaining it differently, Gabby does this as well.
    Thanks for the recommendations! I already have one of these books & 2 on pre order! Looking forward to checking out the others on this list!
    Thanks again!

    • That’s a good point, she’s young and relatable. I really like when an author is able to translate an idea or point a view in a way that’s easy to understand. Yeah no problem, it’s a good month for new releases! Thanks for your comment!

  3. Awesome list! I’m reading Thank & Grow Rich right now for a review and it’s amazing so far. 🙂 I also really wanna read How to be Well!

    • Oh I’m so jealous!! I’m glad to hear you think it’s amazing so far, I can’t wait to read it! How to be Well is also a good one, I’m about a third into it and I’m really loving the way she explains things.

  4. You should be a life coach. Whenever I am feeling down, I come to your site and leave feeling so at ease and motivated. I’ve been stuck in a rut lately and coming here helps. I find it so hard to find time and take care of myself, and read these motivating and inspiring books, but having them here for reference helps.
    I love your blog Jess – I wish we could hang out in person! <3
    Amy

    • Amy this was the best comment, thank you so much for that encouraging feedback. It’s funny you say that about hanging out in person because every time I see you on Instagram or Snapchat, I think “she’s my kind of person”. We must have a lot in common! <3

  5. This is an awesome list! Doreen Virtue’s book looks SO good! I feel as if I’m jumping into the deep end by pursuing a creative career instead of a traditional career (I’m a social worker) – so I hope the book can bring me some peace!!!

    • Yes Robin, I can’t wait to read that one! Not only do I want to pursue a creative career but I want to go about it in a non-traditional way as well (not striving and straining but rather allowing and flowing, etc). So I hope it can bring me some peace too! Thank you for your comment! xo

Wow, is all I can say. Your blog made me realize that I am 100% an empath. It explains SO MUCH. I am in shock. I've been researching it for four hours now, and I'm just blown away with the answers and validation that I am experiencing. Everything is all making sense now thanks to you. THANK YOU.

I'm a new blogger and found your blog planner a couple weeks back. I instantly fell in love with it, it was everything I was looking for and more. I have a horrible habit of buying planners and never using them, until I bought this one. I always have it next to me when I blog and I'm constantly pulling it out to add things to it.
