01. The Third Eye by Lobsang Rampa

The Third Eye is a fascinating life story of a monk’s life in Lhasa, Tibet. Rampa came from a rich and comfortable life, so when he entered the monastery, it was a real lifestyle change. What he learned there completely transformed his life. The Tibetan monks taught him astral projection, crystal gazing, aura deciphering, meditation and so much more. I read this twice as it went into the sacred spiritual practices performed by monks to reach enlightenment. One thing I will never forget is their relationship between death and the human body. This spiritual book was a real paradigm shifter for me.

02. Anna, Grandmother of Jesus by Claire Heartsong

This life-changing book is similar to The Third Eye as in it shares a spirit’s perspective regarding ancient spiritual practices and what is possible. Anna, Grandmother of Jesus channels the mother of the Virgin Mary and grandmother of Jesus to reveal a mystical look into deep spirituality and abilities. The book is filled with activations and encoded messages to connect you with the Divine Feminine.

03. Nosso Lar by Chico Xavier

I first learned about this magical book upon my first trip to see the spiritual healer, John of God, in Brazil. It’s recommended reading for any visitor to the spiritual community. I quickly became engrossed in its channeling of people who have crossed over. They explain what life is like after they “died” and how spirit can interact with us. It’s an interesting journey and a helpful reminder that life goes on. They’ve also made a movie from the book if you want to get a taste!

04. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle experienced the epitome of a spiritual awakening. One night, out of the blue, he woke up to from his normal depressive state to see the world around him in a completely new light. Since then, his life completely transformed and he no longer recognized the person he was before that defining moment. He went on to write The Power of Now to critical acclaim and worldwide success. He expresses what he learned in his awakening: to live in the present and to accept what is. While the message is simple, the importance, value and connection are often missed by us all.

05. Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman

If you like fiction with great meaning, symbology and depth, you’ll love this spiritual book. This international bestseller takes you on a journey through a young athlete’s life as he meets an unusual, but compelling old man working at a gas station. He first writes this man off as senile, but quickly realizes he has strange and uncanny ways of showing up in the young man’s life and teaching him transformative life lessons. This book contains several layers of meaning and I’ve read it over and over again to sift through it all!

06. The Least You Should Know About Life by Kim Michaels

I really love this book because it offers a down-to-earth and practical approach to the mystical side of life. Michaels describes the scientific approach to the subconscious mind and the connection between mind and matter. He then explains how to develop the mind to manifest your life goals. It’s the perfect blend of science and spirituality, so it’s a great introduction into these topics. This challenged my thoughts in a good way and brought me a lot of clarity and understanding.

07. Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks

This is probably the most popular book on this list and for good reason! It’s the ultimate book on the law of attraction. The Hicks team explains how our emotions are a barometer on how close we are to manifesting the life we want. They also list plenty of exercises you can do to strengthen your manifesting muscles. My favorite part about Ask and It Is Given is that it taught me the importance of personal responsibility, the spiritual purpose of my emotions and how it relates to spiritual guidance. This is a game changer!

08. Hands of Light by Barbara Brennon

Hands of Light reads more like a textbook than a leisurely book as it’s filled with the nuts of bolts of our energy field. Since it was written by the former NASA scientist, Barbara Brennon, the book looks at the science behind how our actions and words affect our energy. She explains in great detail how negative emotions, trauma and psychic vampires affect the aura. Even for the non-spiritually inclined, the science is hard to deny. It made me question how I’m showing up in life and if I’m inflicting my energy onto others. If you are even remotely interested in the healing arts, then this is a fascinating read!

09. Many Lives, Many Masters by Dr. Brian Weiss

This is one of my all-time favorite spiritual books! As a traditional psychologist and atheist, Dr. Weiss was very skeptical when one of his patients started recalling past life memories such as long-lost languages, dates, extinct cities, etc. This soon changed when he was able to verify these details He could no longer deny the evidence and has gone onto pioneer the study of past life regression in Western medicine. Since then, he has helped countless people through his books and workshops heal their lives by bringing closure to past life memories that were unconsciously sabotaging their present-day lives.

10. Outrageous Openness by Tosha Silver

Tosha Silva has been a spiritual teacher for more than 30 years, including reading the tarot for clients and writing regularly for a tarot magazine. As a result, she has a super entertaining and succinct way of getting powerful messages across. Outrageous Openness is the culmination of all of her experience. Each chapter is a short story (between 2-4 pages) of things that have happened to her and her friends, which contain deeply embedded spiritual messages. Due to her playful nature, the lessons are easily digestible. I sometimes use the book as an oracle. I’ll hold a question in my heart and flip through the pages until I feel drawn to stop. The page where I land contains an insightful answer to my question. It never fails!

Bonus Spiritual Book

You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay

This is the quintessential book about understanding the relationship between your body, mind and emotions by the much-beloved Louise Hay. I’m a firm believer that the body is a metaphor for what is going on in our inner world. Ailments in the body are the last warning signs that our energy is out of alignment. Whether it’s a toxic emotion or though, the body will let us know! No one described it better–or so succesfully–as Hay.
