My Book List

 

 

 

 

Lately I’m trying to instill more peace and self improvement in my life. About a year and a half ago I bought The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer, a suggestion from my dear sister. Barb is a wellness and health coach, but also an advocate for my well being and suggested this read to change certain aspects of my life. See Barb’s brand new inspiring website at Thriveveryday.com. She intends to teach and inspire others to live a great life by physically being fit and healthy.

I’m finally immersed in this book. One statement from The Untethered Soul that is sitting deep within me is this, keep your heart open. Singer says that many people have a process of opening and closing their heart, picking what and who they like and don’t like and acting accordingly. When you constantly open and close, it creates a blockage of energy. There’s no release of the negative energy and it causes you problems. Blocking energy is a choice to close your heart to the rewards of happiness and love.

 

Once you live in each moment with a positive energy and open heart, you will grow as a person. Whatever situation arises, keep your heart open to people and new experiences. Don’t label everything between things you like and what you don’t like.  Live in the moment and see the good in it. When this habit of closing your heart and building a brick wall happens, stop it. Say no to it and block your heart closing.

 

As I continue this inner journey I will share truths that I learn about myself. I think it’s valuable to constantly strive to know oneself and find a possible path to peace within. As I read this great inspirational book, I’m unlocking answers about behavior and the heart and it’s capacity to let situations in. I’m also learning that as I read this book many examples apply to me.

 

I highly recommend this book to you while you embark on your personal journey. My version is on the Kindle, where I can highlight words that speak to me. You may prefer the solid book version with the cover.

 

Have a blessed week friends!

 

All My Best,

 

Heart and Soul ❤

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m revisiting a great book that I read a few years ago with my son. It’s passionate and descriptive writing pulled me in, making me truly think about war and its effect on soldiers and families. Check out The Things They Carried by Tim O ‘ Brien. It’s worth the read and you may want to keep a journal handy to quote parts!

Right now I’m reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, a little inspiration for any soul seeking creativity. I’m really immersed in it and have book marked my favorite quotes  that stuck with me. Has anyone read this and if so, what do you think of the book? Was Gilbert’s book a comfort or help to you?
