Top 10 Inspirational Books

These top 10 inspirational books are some of the ones that I’ve found over the years. Please add your favourite books to the comments section below!

It’s a magical feeling when a book inspires you. Words can sit on the page as Three books on a garden table next to an apple and yellow flowersbog-standard-words-on-a-page, or they can jump out at you and dance before your eyes, transmitting your very own personal message that seems like it was written just for you!

Have you ever raved about a book, only to find that when you cast your eye over it again you can’t quite find the bit that made you rave about it?

It is as though some kind of osmosis takes place when we’re reading and it’s precisely that osmosis that makes it so exciting. The words become alive within us, sparking off our own personal experience and resonating within the subconscious mind.

Sometimes it’s difficult to recommend a book because you know there’s lots in it that you didn’t really agree with or resonate with, but then again, there’s those golden bits that dazzled you and changed you in some way.

If you read inspirational books, it’s normal to have some parts which don’t resonate with you. Try not to judge the bits you don’t like – just keep going on your treasure hunt for those gems among the pages.

The other thing which can happen is that you don’t actually enjoy the narrative voice of the book – but the message can still get to inspire you…so persevere!

top 10 inspirational books - Embracing our selvesI bought this book after I heard an inspiring account from a great friend of mine who told me about how successful her voice dialogue therapy had been in helping her to heal severe trauma from her childhood. I was so intrigued by such a wonderful story of success that I bought the whole series and read them all.

If you haven’t heard of the voice dialogue series it’s a concept of how to understand and recognise our different characters or voices within and thereby be able to get them back into balance again.

Definitely a concept that I want to know about.
