I have found the best meditation books over the years as I experimented with my daily self-care routine. They're really great because a good meditation book can help to cement your mindset for the day.
In today's blog post, I'm sharing the best meditation books that you can use in your own personal daily self-care routine to help you reset, be inspired and gain a higher perspective.
Daily meditation books
For me, self-care is all about connecting with the universe, healing, re-centering, and lifting my perspective higher. So that means daily meditation books are a huge component to my daily routine.
Meditation books are perfect because they're short but powerful reads that help you to connect and get into a higher vibration before your day begins, which causes a beautiful ripple effect of manifestations and a feeling of being grounded the rest of the day.
The following books are ones that I recommend if you'd like to incorporate a good meditation book into your daily self-care routine:
This was my first meditation book and it took me on such a magical journey. One of my most popular blog posts came from a suggestion in this book, A Sacred Self-Care Birthday Ritual. And that birthday ritual truly shifted something within me, a self-love affair of sorts.
This book really changed me and I highly recommend it.
This is a beautiful meditation book with great though-provoking messages. I love the stories and perspective's Melody shares and my favorite part is always her reflective questions at the end. They always make for good journal prompts.
I would have to say that this book ranks in my top two favorite meditation books.
I actually bought this book in 2016 but didn't really understand it, so I didn't open it again. Fast forward to 2019 when I developed anxiety due to numerous life changes. I began working with a healer and she told me to try this book.
Essentially, this book is rewiring your mind to realize that the world you see is an illusion. It has a 365 daily lessons and they are very powerful. It does use names like God and Jesus, but it actually isn't a religious book at all.
I enjoyed using this Youtube playlist of all the lessons (each one is about 7 minutes long) to listen to after reading each lesson. She does a great job of rewording everything and making it more relatable.
A Course in Miracles has become one of my favorite meditation books. This book in combination with EFT tapping dropped my anxiety levels significantly. And if you love Abraham Hicks, you'll love this meditation book.
Another great book from the author of Simple Abundance. What I like about this one in particular is that even though it's not set up specifically to be a daily book, it's laid out like one with short reflections and this one is all about enjoying the sensual experience of life.
I love the way she writes about getting in touch with our intuition and fully engaging our physical senses.
5. Until Today
While I will admit I haven't gone through this book very much, I do think it's a great choice for a meditation book. It focuses on spiritual growth filled with a-ha moments and powerful affirmations.
But what I like most is that the author is authentic and truly devoted to her own development.
Mark Nepo, the author of this meditation book, has a very deep and profound perspective on life which I think is due to the fact that he experienced cancer.
I love the way he puts things and the quotes he shares along with each daily message. This book is usually in my morning rotation.
Beautiful, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL book. Please get this book for your heart! It is so uplifting and healing. It's not technically a daily book but I use it like one.
There are lots of topics covered, like "abundance", "accidents", "family", "guilt", "deserving," and for each one there's a quote on one side and the other side looks like the photo above, with an affirmation and then a short message.
There's also a new card deck companion that's like the book and it would also be perfect for pulling a card every morning and meditating on the message.
This book and workbook combo also aren't daily books, but I had to add them to this list just because I did use them in my daily self-care routine as part of my healing at one point in my life.
The book is really good, and the workbook gave me one of the biggest healing breakthroughs I've ever had. I still remember the day because I was sitting in Kohl's parking lot, eating In-N-Out while filling in the workbook, and all of the sudden hot tears were streaming down my face and I felt broke open in the best way possible.
So while this isn't a daily meditation book, I think it could be used as one, especially the workbook.
