Way of Tarot Evelyne Herbin and Terry Donaldson

Way of Tarot
by Evelyne Herbin and Terry Donaldson

If you want to have a thorough and profound knowledge of tarot, I highly recommend this tarot book by Evelyne Herbin and Terry Donaldson, of all the books I have read over the last 2 decades about the tarot.

I read this book from cover to cover, until I memorized all the great themes of tarot, and the tarot became thoroughly embedded into my consciousness.

The book is also written in a very simple, easy-to-read format, that makes it super easy to absorb.

I really like the format of the Thorsons “Way of…” series. I also have their book on chakras.

Chakra Clearing Book and CD
by Doreen Virtue

This was the very first book I ever read about chakras and I highly recommend it as a place to start to both learn about what chakras are –  and how to clear them.

The book comes with a cd that is basically Doreen Virtue reading the text from the book out loud. It makes for a great basic guided meditation.

It was also my introduction to Doreen Virtue , decades ago.

Great for listening when you go to bed, to help you clear the energy of your daily life from your whole chakra system.

Messages From Your Angels Book
by Doreen Virtue

When I first got the idea of working with angels years ago, I read every book about angels that I could get my hands on, including many books by Doreen Virtue, known globally as one of the most well-known authors and authority on the topic on angels in general.

This book is the one I found to be the best, and the most basic and general, on the topic of angels. Start with this book, and move on to more.

Earth Angels Realms
by Doreen Virtue

We, as spiritual beings looking to serve humanity, are all Earth Angels, helping to improve the lives of our fellow human beings.

This book by Doreen Virtue describes many types of Earth Angels, including hybrid blends of the different realms.

I am currently taking Doreen Virtue’s companion video course, on Earth Angel Realms. The course is a also a great tool to have in your spiritual toolkit.

celestine prophecy james redfield

The Celestine Prophecy
by James Redfield

The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield is the book that literally changed my life, and my way of living, many decades ago.

It taught me to look at my energetic exchanges with others in a different way, that I still use on a daily basis in my own life.

It teaches very basic spiritual insights that changes how we look at this Universe that we are a part of.

Pretty much every spiritual person I have ever met has read this book at the beginning of their spiritual journey, and used it as a stepping stone.

If you haven’t read it yet – you really need to, if you want to embrace the freedom and responsibility of embracing ownership in your life.

For the French-speaking people who have crossed paths with me – this book is known as La Prophetie des Andes.

This is an essential book to have in your bookcase. And read the book – don’t just see the movie. The movie does not do it justice.

Shambhala The Sacred Path of the Warrior Chogyam Trungpa

Shambhala: The Sacred Path of The Warrior
by Chogyam Trungpa

Chogyam Trungpa is not your typical Buddhist monk.

He was considered the “bad boy” of Buddhism, with living a party lifestyle filled with rock n’ roll, women, booze and good times.

He founded the Shambhala Meditation Centers, which have chapters around the world today.

Why I loved this book, is that it’s written with a beautifully light sense of humour about how we can live our daily lives as sacred warriors, and is filled with teaching that goes beyond Buddhist dogma, but connects to all the cultures of the world.

I DO appreciate Buddhist teachings as well, but that is another discussion.

You can be from any walk of life to approach this simple approach to the goodness of life.

It’s the book I love to open on any random page, because whatever I read is like a breath of fresh air in my day. Always inspiring and good spiritual soul food for thought.

the miracle of mindfulness Thich Nhat Hanh

The Miracle of Mindfulness
by Thich Nhat Hanh

Thich Nhat Hanh is one of my very favourite Buddhists and his Miracle of Mindfulness book is one of my favourite books on Buddhist teachings.

In this book, the Zen Master teaches us how to live and appreciate the present moment, and any little thing that you do. Like when you are simply washing dishes – really immerse yourself in that experience.

This book is the reason why I have incorporated mindfulness in my daily life, from that day forward.

There is such a bliss and beauty to incorporating mindfulness in your daily life. It truly makes you appreciate the very many blessings that we enjoy in our lives.

An interesting aside about this author. Martin Luther King Jr. (yes THAT Martin Luther King) nominated Thich Nhat Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize, for the work that he did during the Vietnam War.

Martin Luther King Jr. and Thich Nhat Hanh were friends for years, and wrote many letters to each other over the period of their friendship.

Dying To Be Me_My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing Anita Moorjani

Dying To Be Me: My Journey from Cancer,
to Near Death, to True Healing
by Anita Moorjani

Anita Moorjani’s book “Dying To Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing” is about her near-death experience on The Other Side.

This book was so ground-breaking and inspiring that Wayne Dyer personally made sure a book about her experience would be published by Hay House. And he writes a very moving forward to the book.

Why this book is so important to me is that when I was reading about Anita’s visit to heaven, it catapulted my spirit into visiting heaven while I was fully awake and aware.

I wrote about my experience here in my blog:
