“Reading is a way for me to expand my mind, open my eyes,
and fill up my heart”

Oprah Winfrey


I consider working in public libraries a blessing. How lucky am I that part of my work  is getting to work with, play with, and share books. I love it!

My house is full of them.

And one of my favourite practices in my SPIRIT Mornings is to read something that uplifts and inspires me. Is there a better way to start the day?

Let me share – and give you some tips on how I make the most of my reading in the morning…

Tips to love choosing & reading:

  • Think about what you’re looking for (there is literally a book on every subject you can think of)
  • Have a couple on the go for different moods
  • Have notepaper/journal handy for insights
  • Stick with non-fiction for spirit mornings
  • Utilise your public library

Here’s a few recommended titles from me, and class attendees:

  • Ask and it is given – Abraham Hicks
  • Afformations – Noah St John
  • Mindfulness for Beginners – Jon Kabat Zinn
  • Man’s search for meaning – Viktor Frankl
  • Enlightenment to go – David Michie
  • Destressifying – Davidji
  • Long walk to Freedom – Nelson Mandela Biography
  • (Got a title you think should go here? Contact me and let me know)



I hope you enjoy.

In gratitude,
