Over the last few months, I have fallen in love with books again. The pages of the ones that I have picked up recently have been like mirrors, allowing me to see my issues through the words of someone else. Allowing me to know that I’m not the only one dealing with certain emotions. Providing me with a rope to pull myself out of my feels. Below, I have 4 must reads for anyone that feels off balanced spiritually, mentally, or emotionally. Trust, you are not alone, and hopefully these books can help you like they helped me.
Words From A Wanderer – Alexandra Elle
I had been following Alex Elle on Instagram for a while and finally picked up her ‘Words From a Wanderer’ It may be a small book, but it is very powerful. Filled with little notes to self, affirmations, and poems, Alex She speaks a truth that many are afraid to utter out loud and I admire her vulnerability.
If you keep going backwards with the same people that God has intentionally removed from your life, you will continue to stay stuck. There is no joy in being confused and unhappy. Get rid of old bad habits and leave them where they belong. What is meant for you will be yours. Learn to let go. Dysfunction isn’t love.
The Four Agreements – Don Miguel Ruiz
Based on ancient Totec wisdom, “The Four Agreements” is like speaking with an elder and receiving wisdom that has been passed on. These agreements offer readers the opportunity to transform their way of thinking and experience a huge emotional release, inner peace, and true happiness.
THE FIRST AGREEMENT: Be Impeccable with Your Word
THE SECOND AGREEMENT: Don’t Take Anything Personally
THE THIRD AGREEMENT: Don’t Make Assumptions
THE FOURTH AGREEMENT: Always Do Your Best
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success – Deepak Chopra
I had been given this book a few years back but unfortunately misplaced it before being able to complete it. I recently bought another copy and I am so happy that I did. This book is not only a door into the self, it is also a guide on how to fulfill your dreams and become a better person while doing it. This is definitely a book that I would recommend to anyone that feels stuck and in need of guidance.
The Law of Pure Potentiality
The Law of Giving
The Law of Karma
The Law of Least Effort
The Law of Intention and Desire
The Law of Detachment
The Law of Dharma
Alexandra’s honesty is what has put her on the list a second time. ‘Love in my Language’ is her second novel and it takes the reader on a even deeper journey of self-discovery. She shares some of the highs and lows of her lives which thus will allow you to reflect on some of the defining moments of your life.
“Before I love you, I will love me 10 times greater.
And before I can want you, I have to experience the dying need of wanting my heart to beat in sync with how I breathe.
Please don’t expect much from me when I can’t clearly dust away the cobwebs from my past.
I am yearning for our future but I have to learn what life is like without depending on a man
I hope these books will help you as much as they are helping me. Please feel free to comment below on some of your go to books when you need a spiritual pick me up.
