Top 5 Books For Self-Mastery - My Personal Summer Pick
Updated: Jul 16
Our world is changing. Can you feel it?
While we see more and more chaos in the house, maybe really uncomfortable and painful to look at, it's just a sign that the planet, and we, of course, shift into higher states of consciousness. We are saying goodbye to all the systems and control that no longer serve us. Bamm...
Now the thing is, we have been supported by a massive influx of light from the outside. I mean, yes, the external field that our planet is a tiny part of. A light that has one major mission:
To dissolve the shadow.
And you might have felt that over the last few weeks, like triggers, or old limiting beliefs popping up, maybe even physical pain like ear buzzing or head aches you can't make sense of. It's all normal. You are raising your frequency (don't know what that means, check out my blog post here).
What can you do to stay cool, calm, and connected?
Here are three tips and 5 books to make this the summer break of your life.
1. Most importantly, be kind to yourself. Self-care and self-love is THE MOST important attitude to step out of the painful part of a change-process. As it gives you energy to move ahead and eventually out of it.
2. Don't try to shuff anything under the rug. I know that's easier said than done. It took me 2,5 years to work through my old negative cycle. Felt like a full-time job. And it's still ongoing as my little side project from time to time.
But know this: NOW IS THE BEST TIME to solve problems. NOW. Because of this amazing light, my dear. Even if you don't see it and do not believe it, everything is energy, and it is here to assist you with getting rid of all the mud that sticks where it should not be sticky and holding you back from you stepping up and creating the life of your dreams.
3. Reach out to people who get and love you. Connect to people like you. Or go out to (virtual) events like these ones here.
And get inspired by magical resources like books. You never know which AHA catapults you towards the next step of your life.
Here I am giving you my personal best-of to help you with your awakening and transformation journey. Ready? Let's begin.
1. The Path made Clear - Discovering Your Life's Direction and Purpose
This is like a confetti container full of magic. Oprah Winfrey collected tons of wisdom in here. From her own experiences, saying good stuff like:
"All dreams start from the core. Unless you are in total alignment with whatever you envision, the dream will get derailed. Your intention has to be pure."
Or wisdom by her "colleagues". From spiritual thought leaders like Eckhart Tolle and Michael Beckwith to celebrities like Goldie Hawn or Alanis Morisette.
I use this gem all the time. In the bathtub to slow down, or when inspiring change-makers in The Pony Farm Society. I open it on whatever page pops up and read it. It's mostly spot on to what I need at this moment.
Wait, I just opened this here. Maybe this resonates?
"Most of us have two lives. The life we live and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands resistance." - Steven Pressfield.
2. The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and Your Children Will be Glad That You Did)
Although this might seem really tough to work through, the author and psychotherapist Philippa Perry (isn't this the coolest name ever?!) has created a hands-on and "hugely warm, wise, hopeful and encouraging" (Alain de Botton) book. Or actually a guide.
I don't think it's for parents who want to break negative cycles only. It's about understanding your own upbringing and fostering a kind relationship with yourself. And with others. No matter if they are your own children or people in your life.
3. A New Earth
Oh man, who would I be without this wisdom by Eckhart Tolle? You never know. But this is about what I said in the very beginning. A new beginning.
If you're ready for that, this is your go-to. I read it 3 times so far, and it lifted me up every time.
It's mainly about transcending the ego (meaning a strong sense of self-importance that keeps you from fully living in the now), detachment (uh, a big thing for me), and leveling up your consciousness, becoming happier, healthier. And helping you to live a life that is filled with synchronicities and flow.
4. The Gift
Dr. Edith Eger is a gift to me. She is 94, became a bestselling author at the age of 90. She is a survivor of the Holocaust and became a specialist in treating post-traumatic stress disorders. I recently had the absolute pleasure of talking to her about her latest book (which she wrote at 93!!) called The Gift (interview coming soon, subscribe here to stay tuned).
And it's the opposite of everything I had expected when reading about her tragic story. It is filled with encouragement and hands-on exercises to change the thoughts that, according to Eger, imprison us and the destructive behaviors that hinder us from living fully. Her personality is so kind and so vibrant, and so is her book. A real love shower!
5. Spirit Hacking
And if you haven't had enough of superpower infusion and need some fluffless (is that a word?), mirror-straight-in-your-face type of thing? Then this is it.
Shaman Durek is a sixth-generation shaman who speaks straightforward truth about what we're experiencing right now, in his word "The Blackout." He gives practical tools to drastically change our way of thinking and empower ourselves from evil and transform this planet. He is one of the four people I allow myself to check for inspirations on Instagram daily.
// BTW In case you're curious, here is my collection:
@awakenwithJP - the best comedian ever / @shamandurek / @philgoodlife - the spiritual awakener / @agirlintheuniverse - if you're interested in updates on the magnetosphere and light influx) // Any recommendations from your side? Let me know in the comments. //
And for those who love the glam world, Shaman Durek is in a love relationship with Princess Martha Louise of Norway... ;) Just saying... light workers can be pretty glam ;))
So my dear. Now back to you!
In every change lies massive opportunity. Take a chance and transform yourself into a being that lives fully on happy and in creation mode. YOU DESERVE IT!!!
We are humans, free will is our asset, and you can choose transformation any day.
Much love and YOU GOT THIS,
