BOOK RECOMMENDATION – MONEY & THE LAW OF ATTRACTION

I’ve gotten really into reading tons of books lately, and I’m already on book 5 out of my goal of 20 books for the year, which just feels so great! I feel like I’m learning and evolving all the time! This time I want to recommend you the book ‘Money & The Law of Attraction‘ by Esther & Jerry Hicks. If you are into Law of Attraction and Manifestation, then this is a book for you!

If you haven’t heard about the concept ‘The Law of Attraction‘ before, then I definitely recommend to start out with reading the book ‘The Magic‘ by Rhonda Byrne first. This is a very good beginner book to get a grasp around the concept. This concept has changed my entire life view, and I’m beyond grateful for having discovered this way of looking at life.

This book, ‘Money & The Law of Attraction‘ is the next level. It’s so good and it has many practical advices, and many repetitions as well to really make you to understand the fundamental principles of Manifestation and Law of Attraction.

Even though the book is titled ‘Money & The Law of Attraction‘, it’s not just about money, it’s about how to Attract all things in life, in all areas of your life – career, relationships, health – it is about how to get an Abundant life.

I will definitely recommend this book to everyone who is into this topic, and if you have never heard about all of this before but want to learn about it, start out by reading ‘The Magic‘, and read this later on.

Quotes

“You are the Creator of Your Own Experience”

“Whenever I feel abundant, abundance finds me”

“You have to begin to tell the story of your life as you now want it to be and discontinue the tales of how it has been or how it is”

“Direct your thoughts towards what you want”

“Looking for problems is a powerful catalyst for attracting them”

“Spend every day visualising your life as you want it to be. Spend 15 minutes every day”

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – RISE SISTER RISE

It’s time for another book recommendation, this time it’s the book “Rise Sister Rise” by Rebecca Campbell.

I gotta say, I saw this booked last year and was drawn to it and ended up buying it. But when I received it and started reading it I wasn’t feeling it at that point in time.

Then I have without a doubt had a lot of changes in my life during the past year and I feel like I’ve grown a lot, so when I was reading Michelle Obama’s ‘Becoming’ a little time back I wasn’t really feeling that book as much at that time and something just kept saying to me to begin reading “Rise Sister Rise” again. And I have learned, that following your intuition can lead to wonderful things, so I put down ‘Becoming’ and reached for ‘Rise Sister Rise’ and I read it within 2 days, I was completely consumed by it. It resonated so well with me.


I have to say, it’s a very spiritual book and it’s all about finding your life’s purpose, connecting with women and ‘rising’ for the higher good of the Planet and humanity. So, feel those words, if they call you, then go grab this book right away and read it. If they doesn’t, maybe you should read this book later in your life.

I truly loved it, and I’m feeling the ‘rise’ of people all over the planet rising to take better care of each other and the planet, and it just feels amazing knowing that there are so many people out in this world who want to change the current state of situation for the better.

Quotes from the book:

“When a great ship is in harbour and moored, it is safe, there can be no doubt. But… that is not what great ships are built for”

“We must remember that the way to heal this Planet is first by healing ourselves”

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – IDIOT’S GUIDES TO AYURVEDA

It’s time for the first book recommendation of 2019! The first book I read this year was “Idiot’s Guides to Ayurveda” by Sahara Rose. It’s all about what Ayurveda is, the three doshas, it contains an ayurvedic dosha test and so much more.

 

Speaking of books and reading, I’ve joined the ‘goodreads‘ site, it’s a site where you can keep track of all the books you’ve read and want to read. You can also make the ‘2019 challenge’ and put in how many books you want to read for the year and then add to the list every time you’ve finished a new book. I already wrote down the books I’ve read in a word document, but this is a bit more fun, so I can definitely recommend that! And now I can tick off the first book of the year: ‘Idiot’s Guides to Ayurveda’ by Sahara Rose.

You might remember the name Sahara Rose, because I already recommended her podcast ‘The Higher Self‘ in here. But Sahara is also the author behind the book ‘Idiot’s Guides to Ayurveda‘, if you are not familiar with the ‘idiot’s guides’ books, they are simply books explaining things in a very easy and understandable way.

So what’s it about?

Idiot’s Guides to Ayurveda is the perfect book if you are new to the concept of Ayurveda. Perhaps you’ve never even heard about this word before? Or maybe you just want to dive deeper into learning about your own dosha and how to balance it.

This book covers the basics of Ayurveda, the three doshas (vata, pitta and kapha), and Ayurvedic dosha test so you can find out of your primary and secondary doshas (I’m primarily vata, and my secondary dosha is pitta, but definitely most vata), how to balance your dosha both when it comes to food and lifestyle tips, ayurvedic self-care practices, all about the 5 koshas and the 7 chakras, good morning and night rituals, all about digestion according to ayurveda, ayurvedic home remedies and so much more!

I already knew a bit about Ayurveda and which dosha was my primary, but I’ve definitely learn a lot of new things by reading this book as well, so I will definitely recommend it if you are into holistic health, self development, growth, self-care practices and spirituality!

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – CHINESE HOLISTIC MEDICINE

Today I want to give you a book recommendation. I absolutely love reading books and I love when others share some of the books that has really made an impression on them and learned them something, and I hope you can find some inspiration as well through the book recommendations that I give here on my blog.

The book ‘Chinese Holistic Medicine‘* by Steven Cardoza is a great book if you are interested in holistic health and how to heal the body with more natural means and before diseases starts to rise, thereby with a more preventative focus.

 

Holisme means to look at the whole person, both mentally and physically. To figure out what is causing the imbalance and which bodysystems that are getting affected and thereby figure out what have created the underlying reason for the disharmony or sickness that is occurring in the body. Thereafter, the holistic praxis uses this information to help the person to get back into balance again. But the holistic praxis also has focus on prevention – they will rather focus on giving advices for diet, lifestyle etc. which will help a person prevent any diseases from arising, and not just treat the sickness once it is there.

I am such a big believer of this way of thinking. Because why wait until we are sick to do something, if we can do small things in our everyday life which can help prevent us from becoming sick in the first place?

 

Chinese medicine is holistic and takes the whole person – body, mind, emotions and spirit – into account, instead of just focusing on the visible sickness

 

If you are interested in topics such as:

  • The Qi flow
  • Meridians
  • Yin & Yang
  • Acupuncture
  • Acupressure
  • Emotions and their influence on our health
  • Herbal medicine
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle

..  then this is the book for you. It covers all the basics of traditional Chinese Medicine, and it is really interesting and fascinating.

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – NATURALLY GORGEOUS

It’s time for another book recommendation, and this one I read in like 1-2 days, it is exactly what I LOVE to read about: health and beauty and natural ingredients which doesn’t harm you or the planet. The book is called Naturally Gorgeous and is written by Charlotte Vøhtz which is also the creator behind the brand Green People. I really find Charlotte’s story inspirering, she started her brand Green People because her daughter got eczema and they couldn’t find any products which she could use, so Charlotte created her own brand.

I got this as a birthday present from my sweet friend Ida, and she really knows me, because if I should have written a book, then this is basically what I would have written. It’s all about avoiding toxic ingredients in your skincare and food, eating nourishing food, drinking water and herbal teas, lots of suggestions for natural skincare, recommendation for dry brushing, DIY recipes for skincare products etc. You get the drill.

If you love natural skincare and beauty as much as I do, and I almost bet you do if you follow me either here on my blog or on Instagram, then you would for sure love this book as well.

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – EARTH IS HIRING

It’s time for another book recommendation, and this time I want to recommend you the book “Earth is Hiring”.

I recently finished the book “Earth is Hiring – the new way to live, lead, earn, give for millennial and anyone who gives a sh*t* by Peta Kelly the other day, and wauw. Amazing! If you are interested in sustainability, changing the world for the better, creative ways of working and living – then this book is for you.

It is such a down-to-Earth book which tells all about how to live a better life in alignment with new values, which is what the Earth needs to survive. It’s all about how we can create businesses and lives which makes us and Mother Nature thrive, and which doesn’t cause harm to the Planet, and in that way ensures that there will be a planet for future generations.

I don’t want to give away too much of the book, because you should read it and enjoy it. But Peta surely is one amazingly inspirering human-being and while reading the book I got so inspired, and uplifted and ensured that I can literally do and work with whatever I want – and I want that to be something positive, healthy and something which helps humans and the Earth.

Quote from the book:

“How does it get any better than this? With this question, you will invite in more of all that is good. You’ll invite in more love, more success, more abundance, and more happiness and joy. You’ll keep yourself on your super highway to alignment and in your flowing tap”

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – THE FOUR AGREEMENTS

A little while ago I read the book “The Four Agreements*” by Don Miguel Ruiz, and wauw. I’ve had this book on my reading list for such a long time, and it is such a light an easy read so I don’t know why I’ve waited so long, but I do believe in timing, and it was the perfect time to read it, it really got me.

 

Don Miguel Ruiz writes about 4 fundamental life lessons in his book “The Four Agreements”, which in all its simplicity are some very simple life lessons, yet this is something we tend to forget about all the time. But, getting reminded of these things and seeing them in such a simple way really makes a difference. It lights you up and makes you feel good, and really shows you how you can change your own world by changing your perception about life.

I don’t want to give away too much, or say what these life lessons are, because I do believe there was something very special about reading the book and seeing these for yourself, and I don’t want to give that away. But, I will give you a little inspirering quote from the book:

 

“The word is pure magic – the most powerful gift we have as humans – and we use it against ourselves”

 

All I can say is that I definitely recommend this book. It is beautiful and so full of wisdom which we could all benefit from becoming aware of and knowing (and using).

 

Have you read the book? What did you think about it? If you have any other book recommendations, please let me know and I’ll add it to my never-ending-reading-list!

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – WOMANCODE

Today I want to share the book Womancode with you. It’s already been a while since I read it, but it has been on my list to write a little recommendation about it for you, because I loved that book!

What’s it about?

The book Womancode* written by Alisa Vitti is a book all about the woman cycle and how to best support your own health and hormones during the different phases of your cycle. I have learned so incredibly much about the woman cycle, and my own cycle, through this book which I had no knowledge about prior to reading it.

My knowledge about the woman cycle before reading this book was mainly that you had your menstruation once a month, and that I was aware of ovulation also happened. But besides that, I had no knowledge at all, neither did I really know how we could live our lives more in alignment with our cycles and thereby improve our health, hormones and overall wellbeing.

I have now learned that we have 4 different phases which we go through throughout our cycle:

  • Follicular phase
  • Ovulatory phase
  • Luteal phase
  • Menstrual phase

I have also learned how to better stabilise my hormones during the different phases in the form of what to focus on (relaxing, organising, exercising etc.) and what kind of food to eat. Fx to eat more healthy fat during the menstrual phase, such as avocados, chia seeds and flax seeds etc.

 

“The path is this: align with your hormones, allow your body to restore its own balance, and watch your symptoms clear up” – Womancode

 

The book actually contain meal plans which you can follow for the different phases, however I’m not much for following plans strictly, so I’ll probably never do that, but I have started to pay more attention to what to eat more of during the different phases, and learned the importance of keeping a stable blood sugar level by eating regularly.

I read this book at the same time as I was quitting my birth control pills (and I also did some other research as well), but I personally haven’t experienced any problems with getting my menstruation back (so far) after having quit the birth control – which I’m truly grateful for!

I can for sure recommend this book, especially if you are quitting the birth control pill and want to stabilise your hormones and get your cycle back on track, but also just if you want to learn more about the female body and how it functions.

 

Tip!

I can definitely also recommend using the app MyFLO which is created by the author behind this book. Through this app you can see which phase you are in and it gives you tips on what to focus on during the different phases every time you enter the app, which I really love!

MY FAVOURITE HEALTH BOOKS

I was asked the other day if I wanted to share some of my favourite health books, and of course I want do! Health is one of my biggest passions in life. I LOVE to read about it, watch documentaries about it etc. and learn new information. I’ve read several books about this subject, but these are some of my absolutely favourite ones. There are books about hormones, what food to eat to make your skin look beautiful, what food is good for improving digestion, natural contraception methods, yoga and ayurveda, herbs and just learning more about what food to eat, and what food to eat less of, if you want to have a healthy body.

 

1. Womancode – Alisa Vitti*
I read this book recently, and I love it. I feel like I’ve learned SO much about women’s cycles in it, and how to stabilise hormones and avoid hormonal imbalance. Definitely a must-read for women, especially if you are just getting off the birth control pill and want to stabilise your hormones back to normal again.

2. Beauty foods – Sally Walker & Laura Bonné*
I love to read about what specific foods does for our body, our health and how we look. This book goes into depth with different food which is amazing to eat for our health and how we look.

If you want to learn more about stabilising your hormones, or finding out what kind of hormonal imbalances you might have, then this book is great. It also has a little test where you can identify where you might have a hormonal imbalance.

4. Taking charge of your fertility – Toni Weschler*
When I first started thinking about quitting the birth control pill, I lend this book from my friend, and wow. This was when I started to learn about more natural ways of protecting yourself from getting pregnant, and just in general learn more about the female body and the cycle.

8. Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods – Anthony Williams*
This book is also about how food can change your life and make you healthy. It describes different food and how it affects your body and your health.

9. How Not to Die – Michael Greger*
If you’re interested in a plant based diet, this is probably one of the books most people will recommend you to read. Michael Greger is one of the ‘big nutritionists’ in the plant based field and have written this amazing book. The book comes with so much scientific evidence for how only a diet can prevent and reverse many of the causes of diseases-related death. Another one is The China Study by T. Collin Campbell & Thomas M. Campell, which is about a study made in China which showed how diet affected health.

I hope you can find some inspiration, and please also share your favourite health books with me – I’m constantly on the hunt for new amazing books to read!
