I’ve read a lot of books throughout the last decade of healing my body. What surprised me the most was that after awhile of reading medical book after medical book, they no longer helped me and I got to a point where I knew more than doctors. I’m sure if you’re on a healing journey, you feel the same way.
You may feel like no one is listening to you, that no one understands you and that doctors are just guessing about what’s going on inside your body. I get it. I was there for far too long feeling helpless and blah. That’s when I threw away all my medical books and embarked on a deeper journey to heal myself on a level I didn’t even know existed. And that’s exactly when these mind body books came into my life.
This journey has brought me to a place where I’ve learned about the unconscious mind, trauma, experiences that keep our body in fight/flight mode and so much more. I have hundreds of books in my home (see here) that I’ve read in the last few years but these stuck out as my favorites and they were life changing for me.
I could easily list hundreds of books here but I’m only going to list a few that I believe you should start with. I’ll be sharing more as time goes on to help you grow into the woman you’re meant to be. For now, I hope they inspire you and bring you to a place of calm and healing.
Letting Go by David R. Hawkins, M.D., P.h.D.
One of my favorite doctors, Dr. Jeffrey Morrison, told me to read this book about 5 years ago. This book started my journey beyond medicine and into the mind-body connection. It’s fascinating and beautiful because it starts to allow you to create awareness in your mind for all the things you’re doing and holding onto that you’re not conscious of. I highly recommend you start with this book. It will change your life and the way you look at things and think about things.
The Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer
I could read this book 10 more times and still enjoy it. I read this book a few years ago and it had a profound impact on my life. Michael Singer calls that voice inside our head that talks to us all day long, our “roommate” and he helps us separate ourselves from that voice so that we know who we truly are and so that we can live a healthy and happy life without being a victim to what which we think we are! Fascinating and life changing for sure.
The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton, M.D.
This book will blow your mind. Bruce Lipton is brilliant because he’s discovered that our beliefs are actually what affect our genes, which means that our belief systems (that we’re programmed with from childhood and throughout our lives from our parents, teachers, TV, social media, etc.) are what make us sick. This book is remarkable and I highly suggest you dive into Dr. Lipton’s work. He is by far one of the smartest doctors I’ve ever heard because he connects the mind-body and shows people what is really making them unwell!
