During our most recent Reiki I and II workshop we got onto a discussion about books that I have found to be helpful along my intuitive and healing journey. There are so many books that I find myself being drawn to, but in this particular post I will be focusing on the books that came up intuitively for the group. At the end I will discuss how to use a guided approach in finding the right book for your needs.
First the Books:
I started my healing journey about 20 years ago in a Walden’s book store in my hometown of Fayetteville, NC. I went to the Self Help section of the store and three books illuminated off of the shelf for me. One was Louise L. Hay’s book, You Can Heal Your Life (we will have to get into Heal Your Life books in later blog post. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G)
The other was a book called Ask Your Angels: A Practical Guide to Working with the Messengers of Heaven to Empower and Enrich Your Life by Timothy Wyllie. This book in particular has been one of the main proponents to why I am a peace of mind guide. I have always had a spiritual connection to angels. Throughout life I have had many experiences with angels before connecting with this book and I believe the angels guided me to this particular book so that I could cultivate my connection with the spirit realms . Ask Your Angels has helped me through some very emotional times in life. It has been a major go to for me during several of my loved ones transitions to the other side. It has helped me in the moments when I had to make some pretty big changes in life by reminding me to maintain faith that all would be well. If you feel a pull towards angels and the spirit realms I would highly recommend this book.
The third book was The Life You Were Born to Live: A Guide to Finding Your Life Purpose By Dan Millman, this book was a great stepping stone to understanding some things about my personality. Dan uses the addition of numbers in an individuals birthdate to get the correct personality traits for the individual. I can personally say it has been unquestionably on point with each of the my family members and clients. I truly believe that it was helpful in finding my purpose in this lifetime as well as understanding others. I use this book as a tool to help others understand their life journey. I have found that it has helped me to create better relationships with others through understanding.
Reiki Book Recommendations:
If your path is calling you to experience the healing art of Reiki, I would recommend you read, A Modern Reiki Method for Healing By Hiroshi Doi. This book is a great research book about the history and current evolution taking place for Reiki.
I have found that Theta Healing: Introducing an Extraordinary Energy Healing Modality By Vianna Stibal can help you navigate the realms or layers of the universe. It breaks down Heaven, the universe, or existence into 7 levels and explains how they all connected to one another. This book has been very helpful in forming some sort of understanding of my place here on earth while also having a connection to the spirit realms. It makes perfect sense out of the unearthly experiences that occur for empaths. If you are interested in forming a deeper understanding of the levels of existence, this is a great start.
Power of Attraction Books:
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success By Deepak Chopra is one of the most wonderful little books to kick start your understanding of your personal power. It has so much information in such a little concise package. The biggest perk about this little book is how convenient it is to carry anywhere. You can read one law a day to help you along your spiritual journey and easily experience its powerful knowledge in a week
Some Other Book Recommendations:
You Are Psychic: Develop Your Natural Intuition Through Your Psychic Type By: Sherrie Dillard (we will be focusing on this book in a future blog post)
Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives By Dan Millman
Animal-Speak: The Spiritual & Magical Powers of Creatures Great & Small By: Ted Andrews. The universe is always interacting with us and creating messages for our highest good that can move us towards healing and our highest evolution during this lifetime. I have always been connected to nature in a way that helps me see synchronistic flow in my life. Animals are beautiful messengers and this book continues to be a guide for me. If animals speak to you or consistently show up in dreams or even every day life, this book could uncover a beautiful path for you.
Step By Step Process in Choosing the right book for your needs:
I am going to go over some of the ways I allow books to resonate with me. I allow source to help me uncover the books I personally need. I have found that when I allow the correct book to choose me synchronistic things begin to happen. Life truly begins to flow and unfold.
Knowing Source guidance is the most important step in choosing the right book!
Make time to meditate and connect to source so you know when you are being led by source guidance vs. your own ego.
If you don’t make the time to clear out the inner workings of the ego you will not have the proper space, relationship, or connection to source.
Use your senses. This process can happen so randomly it is important to listen and be aware of your surroundings.
When shopping for a book the book actually illuminates…like it just jumps out.
When I touch the book I feel its energy.
When I open the book what I read will resonate with a particular event happening in my life.
Listen. Sometimes someone will speak about a book and my body will have a surge or I will hear there is a message there for you. When I say listen, I mean to your personal intuition and source connection.
Know that choosing a book can happen in so many different ways.
Don’t get caught up on the process.
Take what ever time you need but don’t over think it.
Most importantly if you start reading the book and it no longer resonates with you, don’t be too hard on it or yourself, give it away to someone you know. Often Spirit works through us for others as well.
Love and Light!
