These 5 books have seriously impacted my life in a powerful way and I know they will impact yours too! The Untethered Soul By Michael A. Singer “Only you can take inner freedom away from yourself or give it to yourself. Nobody else can.” –Michael A. Singer

Michael Singer does an incredible job of going deep into what causes the mind to be disturbed and teaches you how to be an observer of the mind rather than simply getting lost in its drama.

He teaches the path of unconditional happiness regardless of external circumstances that arise to challenge us on the day to day. This book has been salvation for me during times of uncertainty, fear, anxiety, and struggle. It has reminded me to get out of my head, embrace the present moment more fully, and be more in control of my difficult emotions. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

And how can we not give a fuck about what ultimately does not matter?” – Mark Manson FUCK YES! You need this book in your life if you’ve ever stressed way too much or cared WAY too much about every little thing. Mark Manson has a great sense of humor and is not afraid to just call it like it is. He invites us to get clear about what is ACTUALLY important in our lives so that we can focus on what matters rather than everything else that doesn’t. Manson reminds us that eventually we are all going to die and that what matters is only what we choose to focus on with this finite amount of time we have on earth. He urges us not to try to get rid of all our problems, because it’s simply impossible – there will always be problems. He reminds us that pain is part of the process – we will all suffer and go through hardships from time to time. It is the resolution of these problems along with our ability to cope and persevere that gives us a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Problems are not bad, they are normal and it is up to us to figure out which problems to give a fuck about. Great book. Highly recommend. Caveat: if you are sensitive and don’t like profanity, this is NOT the book for you.

We think the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen. Room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.” – Pema Chödrön Ahhh, this book has a special place in my heart. If you’re going through some tough times, this book is for you. Chödrön dives deep into coping with painful emotions as so to remain open during times where life is intensely challenging. She teaches us to relax in the face of adversity and to learn to accept the present moment just the way it is – warts and all. This book is really helpful during those times of loss, rejection, and intense fear. It teaches us to be more graceful with ourselves and life during times of transition. It is a book filled with wisdom combined with Buddhist philosophy. I’ve turned to this book many times during moments of sadness and sorrow, and have found it highly valuable in helping me cope with distressing emotions. I certainly recommend it if you’re going through a challenge at this time.

Any time I read this book it is as if everything suddenly makes sense again – all my fears, doubts, worries, questions completely disappear because I step back into simply BEING. Tolle teaches us to step into our TRUE selves, which is the conscious awareness; the observer. He brings attention to our habit of spinning stories in our mind and how we become so identified with the story that we completely lose sight of the only thing that is real: the present moment.
