5 Books to Expand Your Consciousness

5 Books to Expand Your Consciousness

Ann Rice Quote on Reading Books

Ann Rice quote from “The Witching Hour.”

Here are 5 of my favorite Books to Expand Your Consciousness.

I was planning to take a two week vacation this summer during which I planned to read and read and read.

Can you tell I love to read? Here’s a true story about my love of reading:

When I was growing up my sister and my best friend and I would play “house.” My character was always the “smart kid that read all the time.” I would only join in the game if my sister and best friend allowed me to keep reading and played house around me.  I just sat there with a book reading. It was perfect!

When they said it was time to eat supper (usually a mix of leaves, grass and acorns from the yard. YUM.) I would move the crate I was sitting on to the box we’d set up to be our dinner table and just keep reading. Sometimes they got mad at me but, mostly they were used to it because it was the only way I would play.

Although, to this day, I still wonder why they gave my pet hamster one of my mom’s thyroid pills – which killed it? Were they retaliating against me for never really participating in playing our game of “house?” I’m sure they never meant for my little pet to die…

So, as you can see I’ve always been a perpetual student. Nothing is more enjoyable to me than buying a book and marking up its pages with notes, highlighting and underlines. I have a Kindle and I use the “highlighting” function but, it’s not the same as writing in the margins of a real book. (It is great for taking on trips though, as it’s super light!)

Anyway, I never took that vacation. I’m a bit of a work-a-holic, as many of you who have come to know me through PbI can see. I get more excited about work than vacations!

So the original title I had in mind for this article: Books I Read on My Summer Vacation, was not going to work but, these books did expand my consciousness so, I’m happy to share them with you.

I hope you’ll expand your consciousness and pick up a few of them too. If you do I’d love to hear your thoughts about the books after you’ve read them as well. (I do so love hearing from readers of PbI).


Synchronicity. The Art of Coincidence, Choice, and Unlocking Your Mind by Dr. Kirby Surprise. This book was an eye-opener regarding the source and meaning behind synchronicity in our lives. I highly recommend it if you’re interested in learning more about meaningful coincidences.


Bare Naked at the Reality Dance by Suzanne Selby Grenager. This book is a great collection journal entries made by the author during her spiritual awakening. If you enjoyed, Eat, Pray, Love, you’ll enjoy this book too! Highly recommended.


The Intention Experiment. Using Your Thoughts to Change Your Life and the World by Lynne McTaggert. If you love reading about the scientific data behind manifesting, the law of attraction and creating your reality you will love this book. Highly recommended.


The Afterlife Experiments. Breakthrough Scientific Evidence of Life After Death by Gary E. Schwartz, Ph.D. (Okay, this one I read about two years ago – not on the summer vacation I never took this year). If like me, you are looking for the scientific evidence that our consciousness survives our physical death than look no further. This book is for you. Highly recommended.


The Field. The Quest For The Secret Force Of The Universe by Lynne McTaggert. Loved it! I wish she’d write another updated version. The Field contains explanations of scientific experiments completed in the last thirty years that show that there truly is a “life force” animating all life in our Universe. Highly recommended.


The Intuition Principle. How to Attract the Life You Dream Of by Angela Artemis. Yes, I can count – and I know I said 5 books….but, you didn’t think I’d suggest books to you without suggesting my own, did you? If you want an in depth explanation on how your intuition works, how to develop it and how to use it to get guidance and lead you to living a life you love – I’m going to be very bold here and just come out and say it, “Read my book.” Check out the reviews that have been written by other readers here.

The best part about reading, “The Intuition Principle,” or any of my books is that you can write and ask me questions about the books or intuition in general, and I will answer you! So, ask away…..I look forward to getting to know you.
