We need truth in our lives. For the first half of 2018, these books were my satsang.
Changing is hard, especially within a system. Not all of us can go to India or Canada or Peru for a year (though if you can, go on with with your bad self!). On the other side of change is more change, and 2018 taught me that. New people, ideas, and habits all “magically” came to me just by reading these books. So I wanted to share! 💓
If you are a woman between the ages of 27-35, please go google “Saturn Return”. Then read Rohr’s Falling Upward without stopping.
If you are Christian or Christ-leaning (not required but may be helpful since it’s Bible based!), dig into Shaia’s Heart and Mind over the course of this year. It is a tome worth savoring, not devouring.
If you would like to dip your toe into what transformation can look like, pick up Amara’s The Warrior Goddess Way.
If you are interested in exploring the roots of intersectional feminism with no BS, allyship mission, or superiority complex, This Bridge Called My Back will ROCK. YOUR. WORLD.
And never, ever forget to sprinkle Mama Estes’s Women Who Run With the Wolves throughout your year for good measure.
This is the year of a shift. If you don’t feel it, that’s okay…keep pushing. But if you do, here is your sign:
A stack of words that, when combined with time and intention, will totally change your life.
Go outside. Read more books. Go to the RIGHT therapist (like dating, this may take a few tries. You often won’t find her on the first one). Meditate. Pray. Excavate. Breathe. Find a stone and keep it in your pocket. Claim a word that like a mantra will permeate your year with the fragrance of renewed spirit and mind. No one is coming to save you. You will have to do the heavy lifting yourself. Once you’ve reached the top you will find a whole satsang waiting to help you roll your stone the rest of the way. But only you can pick it up.
Happy 2019 💓
