Recently during a difficult time in my life I picked up a book at my father’s house. The Power of Intention by Dr. Wayne Dyer. I took it home and began reading it. It was like a door opened in my mind and a flood of information poured in. I was awakened in my own consciousness. I have read books like this before, but I believe I was now ready to receive the message. This is when my spiritual journey began. Here is a list of some of my favorite books.
