The 7 Books on My Spiritual Reading List
Well, I started thinking about it and I guess that isn’t entirely true. I haven’t read a ton of things – only about seven books, total, come to mind – but the ones that I have read have been very helpful, and now I’m going to give you that list in the order that I read them!
This is a great book for those of you interested in how religion ties into spirituality as well as occultism. It covers so many topics throughout history including mystery schools, secret societies, ancient civilizations and so much more.
While much of it is speculation and conjecture, it’s still littered with facts and you can learn a great deal about each of those topics and I always tell people that, if anything, this book challenged not only everything I thought I knew, but also the WAY I thought about it. It gave me the tools I needed to begin breaking down conditioned thinking and faulty belief systems and start looking at the world in a whole new way.
Reading the book wasn’t exactly what happened at this juncture, I actually came across the Channeling Erik blog FIRST and was immersed in reading three years worth of blog posts around the same time that I read The Secret History of the World and Conversations with God.
It was later that Elisa packaged up the blog and put it into a neat little book to share with the world. The blog, along with The Secret History of the world were heavily responsible for my decision to explore spirituality so I HIGHLY recommend this book (and blog) to anyone who is beginning their journey. I’m also heavily involved in the Channeling Erik community as I am the administrator for the Facebook group which has 2,200 members and growing. If you’d like to join up and ask me any questions or start some discussions with the group about spirituality or metaphysics, feel free!
I recommend that EVERYONE read these books. They are the foundational principles for spirituality and I love to re-read them every now and again when I start to feel overwhelmed just to remind myself of the basics of why we’re here.
This book is amazing, particularly for people who come from a Christian background. It’s positive, uplifting and easy to comprehend. I remember as I read it, it felt like my mind was being blown every 20 minutes and I had to put the book down just to absorb the incredible revelation I just had.
This was a quick and easy read for me and really gave me a clear picture of how the energy of past lives can truly affect what we are here to do in this life.
This book is phenomenal for improving self-awareness, particularly for people who struggle with their own emotions or have suffered through a traumatic life event. It’s very empowering, in my opinion.
I enjoyed this book even though it’s out of the realm of your typical spiritual fare. It’s about contemporary Gnosticism and delves into the culture of psychedelics, particularly ayahuasca. It also gave me a burning desire to go to Burning Man…at least once.
This was another book that I absolutely LOVED. It gives such an in-depth description of reincarnation and life planning and really solidified the concepts that I learned from reading the posts on Channeling Erik.
I even shared this book with my grandmother!
The Custodians was the most recent book that I read, just this past summer. I suppose it really completes the circle when it comes to the different areas that spirituality can delve into. It is also the third book on my list that was written with case files from a trained hypnotherapist (the other two being Journey of Souls and and Many Lives, Many Masters). It’s a bit more “out there” than any of the other books on the list – save, perhaps, The Electric Jesus – but it’s still fascinating nevertheless.
Have you read any of these already? What did you think about them? Are there others you recommend? Let me know in the comments.
My first reaction to the reading was WOW. Your words captured a theme woven into my life right now. The reading has emboldened me to take back my power and inspired me to research some books, get back to meditating and provided a focus.Dina
