My favourite spiritual abundance books

These are some of the books on using spiritual principles that have helped me to experience a life of greater joy and abundance.

Whenever I remember to do so, I become aware of what my thoughts are asking for. I ask instead for what I want, in the knowledge that it is already mine in truth.

The Bible is also full of verses we can use to claim claim prosperity.

My favourite books on spirituality in relationships

We are always in relationship. Even if we live in isolation - as I have often done - our relationships continue within our mind.

The spiritual paradigm gives us radical new ways to ease or solve relationship problems.

Please help yourself to my free book on forgiveness which has helped to dissolve many problems in my life, especially at a time when I was too physically ill to avoid or move away from someone!

Below are my recommendations of books on applying spirituality in relationships.

  • Cutting the Ties That Bind: Growing Up and Moving On
    by Phyllis Krystal
  • Journey of the Heart: The Path of Conscious Love
    by John Welwood
  • Approval Addiction (A Christian book on helping you to heal in relationship)
    by Joyce Meyer
  • Radical Forgiveness: A Revolutionary Five-Stage Process to:- Heal Relationships - Let Go of Anger and Blame - Find Peace in Any Situation
    by Colin Tipping
  • Radical Self-Forgiveness: The Direct Path to True Self-Acceptance
    by Colin Tipping

My favourite books on different paths to God

My spiritual journey has exposed me to teachings from many paths. We learn from each other as we let God/the Divine guide us to what is right for us.
Christian teachings are a big influence on my spiritual journey.
A Course In Miracles (ACIM) is the other major one.

Here are my book recommendations for alternatives paths, including ACIM.

  • A Course in Miracles : Combined Volume
    by Foundation For Inner Peace
  • Winnie-The-Pooh: The Tao of Pooh
    Benjamin Hoff
  • Cave in the Snow: A Western Woman's Quest for Enlightenment
    by Vicki MacKenzie
    (Buddhism - Tibetan I think)
  • A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a Course in Miracles
    by Marianne Williamson
  • Your Shamanic Path: Ancient Wisdom for a Modern World
    by Leo Rutherford

Christian Book Recommendations

  • The Screwtape Letters (C.S. Lewis Signature Classics)
    By C. S. Lewis
  • Surprised by Joy
    By C. S. Lewis Cs
  • What Return Can I Make
    By M. Scott Peck with Marilyn Von Walder and Patricia Kay
    (M Scott Peck only became a Christian later on so his writings are interesting for those of us who have explored and been inspired by many spiritual paths.)
  • Approval Addiction
    By Joyce Meyer
  • Beauty for Ashes: Receiving Emotional Healing
    By Joyce Meyer

    (Joyce Meyer runs her own Christian ministry. She suffered sexual abuse when young, so will be particularly relevant to you if you have sadly experienced the same.)

  • Life of the Beloved: Spiritual Living in a Secular World
    By Henri J. M. Nouwen

    Henri Nouwen is a Catholic. His gentle compassionate books are read widely by those of all denominations and none.
  • The Bible

    By T. L. Osborn


  • Unexpected Healing
    By Jennifer Rees-Larcombe

    Kate Nicholas
  • Love never fails

"One thing that struck me was the stripping of ego in the work. Most of us have a comfy ego façade, but weakness and disease tore Katherine’s away. The poems in Be Loved Beloved come from the heart."
