There is never a day I don’t read. It helps me raise my consciousness on the level of reality I want to live at. Let me put it another way. You know that statement that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with? Well, I feel that way about books!
You are continually creating your reality and one of the fastest ways to create reality in accordance with what you really, truly want is to hold your attention on things that plant seeds in your subconscious.
We create reality from the level of the subconscious mind not the conscious. All those TV shows and inane conversations, and soul destroying game apps you let into your subconscious are creating your reality!
A powerful tool to attune to what you want is to read sacred texts that match up with the reality you want to be living. That’s why I don’t go a day without reading, whether it be a paragraph or a chapter (or on a good day the whole book!). I am showing my subconscious what I want and I am reminding myself of what I am.
2017 was a good year for reading for me and these were my top five texts that truly made an impact on my life and changed it for the better. Here we go…
5 spiritual books that changed my life

How could this not be my number one! Yes, I wrote it, but I also read it almost everyday. I ask on the cover of this book, are you ready to surrender to your unlimited self? And that is a question that needs to be asked and answered every damn day.
This book invites you to meet the true purpose of your intuition and to live from that place. I really wrote this book (and created the program that goes with it, Initiate) out of a deep frustration with myself and others. The frustration was that even though we can hear/see/feel/know our intuition (aka the Universe communing with us), we still do nothing about it!
Intuitive Intelligence is going from knowing you’re intuitive to living and breathing your intuition. It is a state of being and this book is a guide that shows us all, including me, how to live in that state every day. As they say, if you only read one book in 2018, then this is the one I recommend!
BUY THE BOOK: SPIRITUALLY FIERCE
This book came out just a few months ago, and without question this is an instant spiritual classic. Joe comes out of his spiritual closet and owns his inner mystic and it was so freeing to read!
I also read You are the placebo for the first time this year and I loved it. But I felt like I had to join the dots to connect the science to my spirituality. Not anymore! This text is practical, applied and evidence based.
BUY THE BOOK: BECOMING SUPERNATURAL
This is an epic new release from spiritual scientist Gregg Braden. I love how this is a call to action, one that I echo every I go, for this is an extraordinary time. We require the kind of resilience Gregg trains us in in this text in order to survive and even thrive in this watershed moment.
Mapping our true human evolution to demonstrate that human beings were created by divine intervention is truly mind blowing stuff. And that’s the point. Gregg wants us to change our minds about ourselves so that we stop believing we are powerless.
BUY THE BOOK: RESILIENCE FROM THE HEART
This is not new at all but this year it has come back into my life in a big way! I introduced it to one of students who spread the word and it is now on the reading list for all my Third Level students. It is a powerful truth-in- myth about the women of the Sisterhood of the Sun who have carried the light codes of consciousness for the coming Golden Age.
The book has been a source of deep healing for the wounded feminine spirit – a call to all women to learn from the powerful archetypes it portrays. I first read it twenty years ago when I was training with Shaman Jessie Ayani in person. It moved my soul and its power continues to this day.
BUY THE BOOK: LINEAGE OF THE CODES OF LIGHT
Definitely not a new release, this spiritual classic deserves to be read everyday for the rest of your life, and that is certainly my plan.
It is without question the single most important spiritual text of our time, and it has spawned many interpretations including A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson and the Disappearance of the Universe by Gary Renard (both amazing primers for reading ACIM).
This is not a text you read for the attainment of spiritual knowledge and then cast aside, unchanged. This is a book you live and it will strip away all the spiritual trinkets to take you to the unwavering truth that you are God. I have been reading the text since 2014. I am now working through the lessons (one per day for a year), and if you want to do something to make 2018 spiritually glorious then grab yourself a copy and begin on January 1. I provide the link to the version you want below.
