I love to read, it’s one of my favourite ways to dive into growth and creativity. So I thought I would share what I’m reading. I’m a notorious book starter, I always have so many on the go, I read different things depending on my mood, mainly nonfiction but occasionally I venture into the unchartered fictional territories. I’ll share both books I’ve finished and those I’m in the process of reading. Be sure to share your book recommendations in the comments too.
BOOKS I’VE FINISHED
This book really helped me understand what it meant to be an empath. I experienced so many aha moments and it was comforting to validate some of my experiences as an empath. It included so many practical exercises to ground what I was reading about and I found it really valuable. You can read more about it here.
I read this book in an hour, it was a pocket-sized gift with simple, yet deeply transformative practices to open the heart. Profound yet deceptively simple it’s no one Thich Nhat Hanh is a true master. Read it here.
Abraham Hicks is great, it took me a long time to finish this book, I’d read snippets at a time. I prefer listening to their audios, but if you prefer to read their work then it’s informative and is presented in a Q and A style. Check it out here.
I listened to this on audiobook, and what I’ve realised is I prefer hard copies (or kindle) so I can take notes and visualise the exercises. This was another book with loads of exercises to bring into your day. I enjoyed it, but I didn’t integrate the exercises as much as I would have liked because I was usually driving when I listened, I love how Kate discusses bringing your work into flow with your cycles, and it’s something I intend to incorporate into my work once I’ve had my baby. I will eventually buy the paperback version of this, but there are so many other books on my radar that it won’t be for a while. You can read more about it here.
If you’re looking for a literary work of art then Katrina Ruth’s books aren’t for you. Kat’s books are easy to read, conversational and straight to the point. They get me fired up and motivated to do the work. If you want to be a 7 figure earner then she knows what she’s talking about. She lives her passion and her purpose and it comes through in everything she does. She is one of my faves, and if you want a pep talk then head here.
I don’t know what to say about this book other than it moved me in ways I couldn’t imagine and you have to read it. It’s one of the few books I devoured, I couldn’t put it down. I didn’t know anything about Mary Magdalene until I read it, and now I see her as one of my inspirations and guides. All I can say is just read it, it’s essential. Get it here.
BOOKS IN PROGRESS
I am so excited about this book! I just started it and it is fantastic. It unlocks your purpose by looking at your 64 gene keys and their place in the universe, drawing on concepts from the I Ching and Human Design. I love it because its concepts aren’t set in stone, your shadow and gifts are there for contemplation, it’s a book to live by, to contemplate in mindful everyday moments, and I’m just getting started. It’s not a book to read cover to cover, its an oracle, open to a page and contemplate the key that is revealed to you until it is embodied. I currently have the kindle version but have ordered the hard copy so I can flick through its pages and let its wisdom speak to me. Get your copy here.
