True Stories of Spiritual Power by Thomas Ashley-Farrand

This is my favorite book by Thomas Ashley Farrand. Through his experiences and stories, he weaves a universe that is far more complex, energetic, supporting, and enlightened than what we usually imagine. He illustrates his understanding of past lives, and gives first hand examples of how spiritual healing energy works and gets transmitted from person to person.

 

Childhood Disrupted: How Your Biography Becomes Your Biology, and How You Can Heal

This book outlines a study that links adverse childhood experiences with adult diseases and symptoms. During the 90s Kaiser Permanente and CDC collected 17,000 test results for a 10 question ACE test (Adverse Childhood Experiences). The results without a question show how much early childhood experiences and trauma are tied to your current health status. One of the highlights of this book is that for a child to experience trauma it doesn’t necessarily have to be physical. A consistent off-handed remark does as much damage as a physical trauma (sometimes more). How we heal depends on how much compassion we are able to hold for all our circumstances and life experiences, and how we grow from them. This book is the first step in a healing, forgiving look at your childhood. 

 

Women Who Run With The Wolves

Clarissa Pinkola Estes combines Jungian Psychology with her extraordinary understanding of women’s inner world and poetic story-telling. This book has the potential to uncover hidden aspects of your being and help you make peace with yourself and your intuition on a multitude of different levels. It is a very dense read and at times very hard to digest as Clarissa doesn’t hold back while unearthing the dark and the light aspects of our being. I would recommend reading it together with a group of women. It is a wonderful book for diving into the depths of what it means to be a wild woman. 

 

 

Books on Spiritual Awakening Journeys

 

Outrageous Openness

Tosha Silver offers an alternative approach to life: complete and utter trust in the universe. Through her short real-life stories, she illustrates how one can take her ego, control, wants and desires out of the way to make space for the divine to create miracles. In a way she offers a simple formula: offer up your desires and wishes to the universe and let them come back to you in whatever way they do. She also has amazing examples about reading the signs, signals and guideposts from the divine intelligence all around us. I also love her second book: Change Me Prayers: The Hidden Power of Spiritual Surrender

 

Waking: A Memoir of Trauma and Transcendence by Matthew Sanford

After an accident leaves Matthew paralyzed from the chest down at the age of 13, he embarks on a journey of self discovery, eventually leading up to practicing and teaching yoga. Among his beautifully profound discoveries and observations: he still feels into his legs, not in the usual loud neurological way, but in the quiet, subtle, cellular, instinctual way. Through proprioception and a regular yoga practice, he discovers new pathways within. This is a beautifully written celebration of human spirit and the possibility of healing amidst trauma.

 

Rise Sister Rise by Rebecca Campbell

How do you awaken the Goddess within? Rebecca Campbell is revealing bits and pieces of her awakening journey to find the She, the wise, the wild, the whole-by-herself She that we all are. She talks about sister circles, magical earth locations, sacred ceremonies, initiations and leaving behind illusions. With little stories that pack eons of wisdom, she unravels what it means to be a She and inspires us all to rise.

 

 

Books on Diet and Reducing Inflammation

 

Medical Medium by Anthony William

When I first read Anthony William’s story of how he met his guide (Spirit), I cried. That is how I know in my heart that the wisdom in this book is coming from a high vibrational, light-filled source. Among other things, it changed my perception of fruits and vegetables and shaped how I now approach my diet preferences.

 

 

The Autoimmune Solution: Prevent and Reverse the Full Spectrum of Inflammatory Symptoms and Diseases by Amy Myers

Amy Myers lays out a carefully thought out diet and supplement plan for reducing inflammation. She was pivotal in helping me change my approach to grains and legumes. One thing she said stuck with me ‘Seeds don’t want to be eaten, they want to create new life.’ My diet and supplement regime is greatly influenced by her recommendations and further clarified with Anthony William’s light-guided wisdom.
