- “Honor Yourself” by Patricia Spadaro
Honor Yourself guides the reader through various ways to understand the art of giving and receiving to balance what others need with what you need. It explains how to draw boundaries, how to determine your priorities, how to be honest about unhealthy people in your life and how to give from the heart rather than from the head. It gives birth to your best self so that you can give creatively and abundantly in ways that honor others. The book is divided into four thematic sections:
• Fill Yourself and Honor Your Inner Needs
• Give Yourself Away and Honor Your Heart
• Free Yourself and Honor Endings
• Celebrate Yourself and Honor Your Own Voice
- “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz
This is a perfect pocket-size book for understanding how we create stories about ourselves and our lives in our minds. This well-known Toltec nagual gives four principles to practice in order to create love and happiness in your life. The Four Agreements are powerful in their simplicity. For those starting out on a personal growth path, following The Four Agreements and implementing them in your life can be an excellent practice. With practice these agreements become integrated into your being and every area of your life and become easy habits to keep.
- “Goddesses Never Age” by Christiane Northrup, MD
This book is about ageless living—living without the fear that you are declining and understanding that growing older is an opportunity to know your value. The book nicely walks through 5 tips for becoming and remaining an ageless goddess. The book is broken into twelve chapters. Eleven of them are focused on what ‘real’ goddesses do, such as love without losing themselves or move joyously. Her point is very clear: more than any vitamin or pill, it is our thoughts and our beliefs that dictate our health and vitality.
4. “Mindfulness for Beginners: reclaiming the present moment—and your life”
by Jon Kabat-Zinn
With a beginner’s mindset, this is a wonderful book that helps us become our teacher of the moment, and of the possibility of being fully present. The book includes a CD with 5 meditations and the chapters walk you through how to enter, sustain, deepen, and practice mindfulness. Each section has a “lesson-a-day” primer on mindfulness practice.
