1. The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield

Books for the soul

The Celestine Prophecy was one of the first books I ever read that awakened me to the idea of being a Spiritual being. Although technically it is an Non-Fiction the characters in the story you can relate too on a deep level. It talks about energy, raising your vibration and building meaningful connections. 


The Celestine Prophecy contains secrets that are currently changing our world. Drawing on the ancient wisdom found in a Peruvian manuscript, it tells you how to make connections between the events happening in your own life right now…and lets you see what is going to happen to you in the years to come.

2. The Alchemist by Paul Coelho

Books For the soul

Paul Coelho is such a skilled and articulate writer that he makes you feel as if you are there with the characters. I just adore his books and The Alchemist has a huge cult following and rightly so. This book delves deep into the meaning of a Spiritual journey, what we can learn by listening to our soul and how to access the wisdom within our own hearts. 


Paulo Coelho’s masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago’s journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life’s path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

4. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

Eat, pray, love feels like a warm cosy nourishing blanket for your soul. It is a non fiction that delves into the Spiritual journey of an women who goes through a divorce and catapults her onto a path of awakening. She journeys to Italy for some nourishing food as well as making meaningful connections that helps her to heal, then to India to an Ashram where she learns the art of meditation and how to listen to the voice of her soul and then finally in Bali where she learns to love herself and heal her heart. I just adore this story and love it with all my heart. 


It’s 3 a.m. and Elizabeth Gilbert is sobbing on the bathroom floor. She’s in her thirties, she has a husband, a house, they’re trying for a baby – and she doesn’t want any of it. A bitter divorce and a turbulent love affair later, she emerges battered and bewildered and realises it is time to pursue her own journey in search of three things she has been missing: pleasure, devotion and balance. So she travels to Rome, where she learns Italian from handsome, brown-eyed identical twins and gains twenty-five pounds, an ashram in India, where she finds that enlightenment entails getting up in the middle of the night to scrub the temple floor, and Bali where a toothless medicine man of indeterminate age offers her a new path to peace: simply sit still and smile. And slowly happiness begins to creep up on her.

5. Energy Speaks - Lee Harris

books for the soul

Lee Harris is such a talented writer and teacher. I found him through Youtube where he provides regular energy updates for the month ahead and is always so accurate. His book Energy Speaks teaches you through his Spirit Guides, how to live a conscious soul based life based on loving communication and energy. This book has so much information in it and has taught me so much about the inner workings of the soul. 


In Energy Speaks, Lee Harris distills these teachings into a concise and practical guide for conscious living. Above all, he shows us that each one of us is an irreplaceable part of something much greater than ourselves, and that help is always available to us from unexpected sources. Energy Speaks is a wonderful and rare book from a visionary whose teachings are spreading around the world.

6. Gaia Codex by Sarah Drew

The Gaia Codex is such a beautiful story that seeks the reader to awaken to their own eternal wisdom and beauty. It is set in a time of great turmoil and relates so much to what humanity is going through currently. I loved the story, the characters and the underlying message and this book has stayed with me long after reading it. 


Both an ancient, “found” wisdom text and a sumptuous, epic novel, Gaia Codex reveals the hidden histories of a world long forgotten, the secret wisdom of an ancient lineage of women, the Priestesses of Astera. Set in a near future of impending societal and environmental collapse, the novel is a tale of hope and remembrance, as well as an inspired vision of humanity’s origins and of the potential we hold for conscious evolution.

7. The Joy of Living by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

Meditation is such an key practice for quietening the mind and learning how to connect to the Soul. In this beautiful book that is based on Buddhist principles, the writer, Yongey articulates beautifully the science behind meditation and how to utilise the Tibetan Buddhist Principles of Compassion and inner peace in your life. 


For millennia, Buddhists have enjoyed the limitless benefits of meditation. But how does it work? And why? The principles behind this ancient practice have long eluded some of the best minds in modern science. Until now.

This groundbreaking work, with a foreword by bestselling author Daniel Goleman, invites us to join in unlocking the secrets behind the practice of meditation. Working with neuroscientists, the author provides clear insights into modern research, which indicates that systematic training in meditation can enhance activity in areas of the brain associated with happiness and compassion.
