Over the years, I have come across some excellent and empowering resources that I am excited to share with you – books, teachers, healers, and other inspiring finds. May they serve you well on your journey!
Sacred Pleasure: Sex, Myth, and the Politics of the Body ~ Riane Eisler | An extremely empowering and insightful book that opened my eyes to the depth, complexity, history, and far-reaching implications of living in a patriarchal world. Gloria Steinhem writes, “Sacred Pleasure makes the links between sacralizing pain and justifying war, between child abuse and sado-masochism, between patriarchy and the war of the sexes, between the intimate and the political. Only by sacralizing pleasure can new links be forged to peace, equality, and empathy.”
Men Explain Things to Me ~ Rebecca Solnit | Eye-opening and powerful, this book raises awareness of issues women deal with every day that have become so normalized that we don’t even think twice about their repercussions or even realize they are happening – but we need to – we absolutely need to! From the inside cover: “Solnit took on what often goes wrong in conversations between men and women. She wrote about men who wrongly assume they know things and wrongly assume women don’t, about why this arises, and how this aspect of the gender wars works, airing some of her own hilariously awful encounters. She ends on a serious note – because the ultimate problem is the silencing of women who have something to say, including those saying things like, “He’s trying to kill me!”
High Magick ~ Damien Echols | I love this book!!! There are so many magick books out there that feel dry and inaccessible. This is written in easy, modern language that flows, empowers, and invites the reader into a rich, fulfilling exploration of the beautiful and enlightening practice of magick as a spiritual path leading one towards Ultimate Love. Damien doesn’t talk down to you, he lifts you up, puts it all out there, and trusts in your ability to embrace magick and step fully into your power! From the inside cover: “Magick is not a path for followers: it is a path for questioners, seekers, and anyone who has trouble settling for dogma and preformulated answers. Magick is for those who feel the desire to peel away the surface of reality and see what lies beneath.” Yes please!!!
Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One ~ Dr. Joe Dispenza | I am so totally all about empowering ourselves to create our own reality with love and positivity – this book strengthens my ability to do so and validates what I have come to know as true for me. We create our reality with our thoughts, behaviors, and mindset. Negativity breeds negativity ~ positivity breeds positivity. It really is that simple. Simple, but not exactly easy to embody and master. It takes work (A LOT OF WORK!!!) to deprogram all of our negative thought processes and habits – this book helps with that!!!! “Once you break the habit of being yourself and truly change your mind, your life will never be the same!” Amen to that!
The Book of Stones: Who They Are & What They Teach ~ Robert Simmons & Naisha Ahsian | This is the most in-depth, thorough, and inclusive book I have found on gemstones. These are powerful energies that have been unbelievably transformative, healing, and truly life-changing for me. If you are interested in acquiring a huge set of super powers, I highly recommend picking up this book and start working with these amazing beings now. The thorough index makes it easy to find the perfect stone for any purpose. They will support you body, mind, and spirit in profound ways. Get ready to level up! This book is a must-have for stone enthusiasts at any level – beginner to advanced!
Dreamy ~ A Most Gifted Astrologer! | Okay so wow – I don’t even know where to begin and I will try not to gush too hard all over the page here, but seriously, Dreamy is absolutely amazing, insightful, extremely skilled, fun, and just an all-around awesome astrologer/psychic/tarot reader! I’ve had three readings with her and each time my mind was blown. She came highly recommended by my friend, who was also blown away, and each person that I have recommended her to has been blown away (so it’s not just me!) – she will provide you with excellent wisdom and suggestions and information to support you on your path. I just cannot say enough wonderful things. And she does phone readings now too, so yay for that! We need all the help we can get navigating this crazy adventure called life – do yourself a favor! https://www.psychic-sister.com/pages/phonereadings
