Most of of the following books I have read and thoroughly enjoyed. When searching for a book I often feel it speak to me. Not literally, no! But I somehow feel my energy change or get a sense of warmth, which may just be because the title and synopsis of the book on the inside cover have piqued my curiosity. Either way, I feel like they have chosen me as much as I have chosen them.

This is not an exhaustive list. There are other fantastic authors I have left off the list. If you have been amazed by a title not shown here, please drop me an email. I love to expand my knowledge! There is a list of other authors at the end of this section, if you are interested in further reading.

I have organized the books into sections for easier reference. Many of the books themes cross over into different sections, I am simply expressing the theme of the book I felt most resonated for me. While I have read more books from each of these authors and a number of other authors, I have chosen the books which have created the biggest impact in my life. Several titles can be found in used bookstores.
