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.

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

Whenever I remember to do so, I become aware of what my thoughts are asking for, apply the principles, and ask for more!

Books on Spirituality in Relationships

We are always in relationship. Even if we live in isolation, 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!

What are the Benefits of Reading Self Help Books?

Books have been such an important part of my journey.

These books have challenged, guided, inspired, and educated me.

Books were my friends when I was ill and isolated and had few friends. So much so, that my first book It's OK to Believe, A Journey with Faith and Reason is dedicated to Marianne Williamson and to M Scott Peck:

To Marianne Williamson and
M Scott Peck (1936-2005)
whose humanity and wisdom kept me going.
Thank you.

Books are the most amazing source of knowledge. Someone can take years of their life, synthesise it and share it with us.
When I read The Road Less Travelled by M Scott Peck (in popular psychology), I felt the writing of that book was an act of generosity.

Books let us know we are not so different. This can increase our sense of belonging and being understood.

Books let us know the ways in which we are different. This helps us to position ourselves in the world, to understand the unique contribution we can make, and understand other people's reactions to us.

Books give us advice at times in our life when we have few people around us to speak words of wisdom.
When we read a book, it is easier for us to choose the advice that is good for us, rather than be pressured to take unsuitable advice, as we often are when someone speaks to us in person.
A source of informed, impartial advice can be so important in a time of illness or vulnerability.

I frequently close a book and thank God for the wisdom I have received. I ask Him/Her to bless the author in their life and work.

A Prayer For Authors

Dear God,

I thank you for the work of these authors.

Feed them with knowledge and understanding so they may always speak words that connect us with Your Love.

Please bless them in their life and work, and make them a blessing to others.

Be Loved Beloved

"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."

Dana Taylor, Author of Ever-Flowing Streams: Tapping into Healing Energy
