On my personal go to list…Reading. A little about some of my favorites…
I thought it might be of value to share books that I recommend to clients and friends. I’ve found that the best practice for me is to download a sample from ITunes to determine if purchasing the full version of the book “speaks” to me. If I love a book it’s in my house, office AND on my Ipad.
Books that have found themselves in all three places;
“The Untethered Soul” by Michael Singer
…this is a book I like to read bit by bit. In my office we focus on creating change through shifting the relationship with ourselves. We begin with awareness regarding self talk. This book speaks to the idea of self, thoughts and the dialogue in our head. I couldn’t stop talking about this book to anyone who would listen when I found it. (…though I do believe books find us)
“A Return to Love” by Marianne Williamson
…this is THE book if I was to choose just one. AMAZING. Marianne Williamson guides us through all aspects of our lives; relationship to self, our life’s “work”, relationship to others, forgiveness, etc, etc…I will NOT loan my personal copy of this book out so that tells you something. 😉
“The Alchemist” by Paul Coehlo
…this novel focuses on finding our purpose, our live’s path through a fable about a young man on a journey searching out a treasure.
“How To Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It” by Patricia Love
…a great tool for building any intimate relationship, understanding one another AND so important to read from the perspective of how can I change…instead of I cannot wait to get home and read this quote to my partner 😉 They really need to hear this!
Other books I love “Nurtureshock” author Bronson, “Lean In” author Sandberg, “Love is Letting Go of Fear” author Jampolsky and “Journey To The Heart” author Beattie…just to name a few.
Books are one of my favorite self soothing tools, a top five on my go to list AND the reason I never feel like I am “waiting”; in line, at the doctor’s office or in the airport…there is no waiting when you’re reading <3 I'd love to hear your favorite book title and how that book has influenced your thoughts; please feel free to leave a comment below.
