I’m SO grateful for the books that have helped to empower my life. When I ask God how to get me out of my own way, I’m usually given signs through books. This is just one of my 5 shelves filled with books that have contributed to my ever expanding mind. Byron Katie, one of my favorite authors says, “There are no knew thoughts.” Most of the books I read align me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. They may say different things, but what I find is so many of the messages overlap in the most beautiful ways. I feel like we all interpret the world with just enough of a different spin. When we are the writers of these books, how we’ve written them is how we internalize and process the messages. Whatever books the reader resonates with are most aligned with the energy they feed inside of them. What’s interesting to me is when people argue and debate about different ways of viewing the same idea. Someone thinks they are right and the other is wrong, when really, we are all just absorbing information through our own lenses. We might absolutely love a book and see things differently than the author interpreted it. I’ve come to the place that I don’t expect to be 100% aligned with what I read, but what’s important is it helps me to align with the energy that feels best to me.
Today, I commit to reading daily to align my energy with love, abundance, and peace. What book can you ready that will help you align your energy with love, abundance, and peace? Did a book come to your head right as you read the last question? If so, that is the book. If a book didn’t come to your head, write down the question. Take a few deep breaths, and see what comes to you. It may not be this very second. A friend may mention a book out of the blue, or you see an ad, do a search, or someone gives you a book. When it’s the right book, something in your body will tell you. I’m amazed at how this works. Commit to reading just a few pages a day. If you end up reading more, great. If you prefer audiobooks, do it that way. I have over a hundred audiobooks and have listen to some two or more times. I love audiobooks, because I’m not trying to fit something else into my schedule. My favorite times to listen is when I’m walking or driving. Just remember, we want to surround ourselves with the energy we want to see more of. We have to fuel our senses to spot it and absorb it. Reading and/or listening to books that align us with the energy is a great way to do it.
