Books are food for the mind and they nourish our spirit. Reading is an immersive activity that expands our creativity, kindles our imagination, and fills us with a sense of wonder and delight. My own awakening and personal transformation has been greatly accelerated by the fantastic books that I have had the pleasure of reading throughout these last few years. I have learned so much about life, myself, the world around me, the nature of existence, hidden histories, what’s really going on behind the scenes, and much, much more! The good news is that there is more empowering, informative, consciousness-expanding reading material available than ever, with many titles now in digital format that can be read instantly. Let’s make the most of this opportunity and continue to expand our minds with books that greatly enhance our learning and awareness!
“Knowledge is sacred and the choice to be informed or merely entertained in today’s world is a very revealing test of the times. Expanding your mind to penetrate the deeper meanings of life is not only liberating, it is crucial to your well-being, for knowledge is power, and how you use your power inevitably determines the course of your personal and collective life.” — Barbara Marciniak

<< My Top 3 Recommendations >>
A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose by Eckhart Tolle — this book taught me about the ego and helped me see how it was operating in my own life, highlighting how I was sabotaging myself by fueling self-destructive behaviors and limiting patterns of thinking. This is the first book that taught me the power of presence and self-awareness , understanding that the most powerful moment we have is always here and now. Tolle possesses amazing clarity and simplicity in his words that are both highly enjoyable and filled with practical wisdom.
Path of Empowerment: Pleiadian Wisdom for a World in Chaos by Barbara Marciniak — an incredible treasure trove of empowering and revealing insights and information about life, multidimensional existence, energy/frequency, beliefs, sexuality, healing, and our role during these pivotal times of collective transformation. Channeled by genuine Pleiadian Beings, this is one of the best books I have ever read. You will not be disappointed. Filled with so many powerful, direct quotes that can be re-read over and over again.
Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue (Book One) by Neale Donald Walsch — Imagine having a direct conversation with God about the most puzzling questions about existence — about love and faith, life and death, good and evil. The answers in this book are simple, easily understood, and nothing less than profound. I highly recommend this series of books for anyone with an open mind and a sincere desire to seek truth.
