Book Recommendations For Spiritual Growth, Inner Healing & Trauma Release

Updated: Jan 13

Updated lists of some of the key gems I have discovered to aid our journey of healing and awakening. I am often asked to suggest authors that have greatly enhanced my life journey of growth, releasing and brain retraining. I have also included some that I have yet to explore further or that I have heard talk, rather than read, that are particularly amazing. Different influencers show up at the right time, depending where you are on your healing journey, as always trust your intuition.

Starting Your Spiritual Journey

You Can Heal Your Life - Louise Hay - I refer to this book daily with my clients, there is a wonderful dictionary in the back that relates the opposing emotion to the common ailments, aches and pains the world experiences. For me, 95% of all illness and disease has an emotional root cause and when you find it and work from there, ultimate healing can occur. Louise founded HayHouse at 56 years, the biggest self-help publishers in the world and has many courses and books that you may feel equally drawn too. Her mirror work, with affirmations, is life changing, enjoy exploring your inner growth.

I Can See Clearly Now & Don't Die with The Music Still In You by Dr.Wayne.Dyer are two of my favourites but he has over 80 books, publications, videos, meditations and courses that are all truly inspiring and helpful.

Your Body Is Your Subconscious Mind by Candace Pert, PH.D important teaches for everyone, especially those who are healing from physical ailments. Understanding the truth about how we operate is key to ultimate healing.

Everything by Kyle Gray; Books, Courses and Card Decks - I love these books: Raise Your Vibration (New Edition 2022), Divine Masters Ancient Wisdom (new 2021), Angel Prayers, The Angel Whisperer, Wings of Forgiveness, Light Warrior, Raise Your Vibration & Angel Numbers. Card Decks: Angel Prayers, Keepers of the Light, Angels & Ancestors and the Angel Guide Oracle.

Denise Linn - Energy Strands & Sacred Space Books and Native Spirit & Sacred Destiny Oracle Cards.Any of her books and courses though, she actually completed one of my Past Life Regressions on a trip to London and I am forever grateful! I saw myself burned at the stake for being a healer - very much misunderstood at that time but perfect confirmation that I am on the right path.

Dr Christiane Northrup, MD - Dodging Energy Vampires - An Empath's guide to evading relationships that drain you and restoring your health and power. I have written blogs on this book too, to help with protecting your energy field.

Dying to Be Me by Anita Moorjani, an important read for anyone living with a lack of self-worth, showing what we can manifest in the body due to constant negative thoughts of ourselves. We are more horrid to ourselves than anyone else, this needs to stop. Anita suffered with severe Big 'C' for 4 years & transforms her body, mind & spirit with a massive shift in personality, self-belief & self-love after a near death experience. Anita has amazing videos with her talks too available on Youtube and via her website + What If This is Heaven (her 2nd book).

The Female Archangels by Claire Stone - reclaim your power with the lost teachings of the Divine Feminine. Super similar beliefs and practices to what I hold and teach daily, Claire talks about her life path and teaches us, in detail, about the lost history of the Feminine Archangels - removed from our history as the power and energy of women has been feared by men for centuries. We are all amazing!

The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley - the magical legend of King Arthur, vividly retold through the eyes and lives of the women who wielded power from behind the throne. A spellbinding novel, that will stay with you asfor a long time to come.

Everything is Figureoutable by Marie Forleo, the title is explanation enough or read more in my blog: Book Review.

The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav - highly recommended for those looking to truly awaken to a new way of being.
