Books for Transformation, Self Development, & Spiritual Growth
Knowledge is power and reading is fundamental. Below are some of the books that I’ve used to further my self-development and progress on my spiritual journey. Learning is a life-long process. Reading daily helps us learn new things about ourselves and the world around us. Through books, we have the ability to view the world from another’s perspective, while challenging what it is that we believe we know. Many books included on this list are transformational and are great to revisit every once in a while. Others are great for understanding yourself on a deeper level and may take some time to get through. Either way, I hope you find this list helpful as you expand your life path.
1. The Power of Now – Eckart Tolle
The Power of Now is one of the first books I read when I decided it was time to make a change in my life. I was tired of being stuck in the past and always worrying about the future. This book came recommended to me by a colleague and I am grateful for the recommendation. I remember sitting on the beach in San Diego, CA reading every single line, sometimes twice to really process what Tolle was saying. The Power of Now helped me realize that there was so much more to life than meets the eye. It is truly transformative.
2. The Four Agreements – Don Miguel Ruiz
The Four Agreements teaches you key advice to free yourself from the constraints of your mind and of others. Not only did it encourage me to be a better human being, it also taught me how to live without fear and to shift my beliefs from negative to positive. It freed me from the victim mentality that I was stuck in and helped me realize how powerful our words are.
3. Becoming Supernatural – Dr. Joe Dispenza
Becoming Supernatural is an excellent book to help you comprehend how intricate and powerful we are as human beings. We are often stuck in this 3D reality, not realizing that there is so much more than this current dimension. This book affirmed what I always wondered to be true. It showed me how to express my creative abilities and use my energy and manifest what I want in life. This is a great book for those who rely more on analytics and science rather than faith to understand metaphysics.
4. The Untethered Soul – Michael A. Singer
The Untethered Soul teaches you to go inward and get in touch with the your Divine consciousness. It explains how to unhook from limiting thoughts, emotions, and negative energy patterns keeping stuck and hindering your progression in life. This book was eye-opening and helped to free me from the illusions encrusted in my psyche as a result of social programming. If you choose to read any of these books, this one is an absolute must!
5. The Secret – Rhonda Byrne
Before reading The Secret, I watched it on Netflix. I couldn’t believe how powerful the Law of Attraction was. I started to use it to build my dream life. As things began shifting for me, I noticed how powerful this technique was. A few years later, I decided to listen to the audiobook to revisit this the topic. If you are unfamiliar with the Law of Attraction and how it works, this book does a fantastic job of simply breaking down the steps to take to manifest your dreams into reality.
6. The Empath’s Survival Guide – Judith Orloff, MD
The Empath’s Survival Guide came to me at a time when my relationships were shifting drastically. This book enlightened me about the various types of energy vampires that casually roam the planet. Dr. Orloff does a fantastic job at describing steps to take to protect yourself from these negative energies and reclaim your life. Before reading this book, I was completely unaware of why I’d feel so drained after interacting with certain people. If you identify as an empath, this book will change your life, and maybe some of your relationships!
