I’m really just wanting to give an update on what I’ve been trying lately. I want to talk about the books I’ve been reading first!
The first book I picked up that really got my creative juices flowing and my brain working on what I wanted to try next was called Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. The same author that wrote Eat, Pray, Love authored this amazing book that will make you believe you can do anything you set your mind to. Gilbert really pumps you full of magical ideas, theories, and opportunities. It is truly inspiring. I found it so witty, full of anecdotes, and just overall empowering. If this book doesn’t leave you wanting to go create something, anything of your own, you need to read it again!
The next book I picked up was called The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. This book really became my bible there for awhile. I should definitely pick it again soon to reread. This short book will make you question everything you grew up knowing. It truly changed my thought process and the way I live my life. This Toltec wisdom can guide you through anything in your life. They are simple, yet tough to embrace rules to live by. I will never be the same after reading this book. It is a life changer.
My most recent read is a book called The Soul Searcher’s handbook: The Modern Girl’s Guide To The New Age World by Emma Mildon. This book has truly set my spiritual journey into motion. Before now, I was wondering aimlessly through articles about crystals, apps regarding moon changes, random yoga classes, and meditations from Spotify. This book has guided me through each and every aspect I have wanted to discover. Mildon gives thorough details and adds a personal touch to every chapter. Mildon knows what she is talking about and can really get you started navigating the spiritual realm. She covers a wide variety of topics in an easy to read and understand format. I would say this is a must- read!
I purchased The Crystal Bible by Judy Hall a few days ago, and so far I’m loving it! This book is smallish in size, but it does the trick! I have been post marking the sections with crystals I own on it to keep track of my collection and for an easy referral when I want to use them. Hall gives you the most important info on the crystals. This book also contains information on the background of crystals, ways to use them, and the varieties that crystals come in. A great book to have on hand for anyone who utilizes (or just likes to look at) crystals!
I am currently working on the book The Modern Guide To Witchcraft: Your Complete Guide To Witches, Covens, And Spells by Skye Alexander. I’m really enjoying this book because I just generally love to learn about different aspects of spirituality. There are seriously SO many! The thing I love about spirituality is that it doesn’t just encompass one thing – it can encompass however many things you want it to! If you just want to meditate once a week – so be it! If you want to cast a spell the guy in the apartment across the hall hoping he may fall for you – so be it! It’s doing what feels right to you, and sits well with your soul. Anyway – this book really tapped into my curiosity. It’s super informative and easy to follow. This book would be great for people like me who generally just want to learn about witchcraft, and don’t necessarily want to practice. But who knows, maybe I will put spells and potions into my routine!
Any books you want to recommend to me? I wanna hear!
