3 Fascinating Books to Start Your Spiritual Journey

If you are beginning to walk your path of spirituality, you will need a library of books to help you in learning the different modalities available to you.

1) The Way of the Shaman by Michael Harner

Spirituality comes to us in different ways. When I began my journey, I started with shamanism because of the healing nature of this practice. Shamans are trained to heal the spirit because often our hurts can be so deep that they affect not only the body but the soul as well. The essential book in the study of shamanism is “The Way of the Shaman” by Michael Harner. This will instruct you in the basics of this practice.

2) Animal Spirit Guides by Steven D. Farmer

Shamanism involves journeys to the upper and lower worlds. In the lower world we meet our power animal and learn to receive messages from the spirit world through all animals. Steven D. Farmer produces essential books on “Power Animals” and “Spirit Animals” to help us understand the unique messages that animals send to us when they interact with our spirit guides. I have learned to keep my eyes open to unusual animal sightings for these are messages from the spirit world. Start with his book "Animal Spirit Guides" to discover your spirit animal.

3) The Secret Language of Birthdays by Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers

Another book in my library, and one of my first books is “The Secret Language of Birthdays” by Gary Goldschneider and Joost Elffers. This is a magical book! I always read about my friends and family members once I discover their birthdays. I find the information is fascinating and long lasting. It's helped me in all of my relationships as I have a better understanding of people's personalities. Not necessarily a spiritual guidance book but definitely one for the library as it explores birthdays, astrology and spirituality.

I will continue to inform you of books to add to your library that will help you to expand your knowledge of spirituality. If you have a specific question about a modality and a good book to help you learn more about it, feel free to send me a message.
