How many times have you told yourself that you are not good enough, intelligent enough, that you are too tired for a change? Maybe you struggle in a relationship, maybe you hate your job or you lack time for self care? Now, let me tell you once again that self care is not selfish and there is no such excuse as lack of time. Do you really need to stay at work until 8pm? Do you really need to say yes to yet another coffee break with your colleagues to speak about something boring like, let's say, politics?
Nope. Grab one of these books instead. Heck no! Not another reading list! Heck yes, as this is not just another reading list. It is specifically designed to empower every woman out there. These books will help you to connect with your inner self, teach you that you are powerful, you are strong, you are a Goddess.
Mary Magdalene revealed This book will definitely raise some eyebrows, especially if you believed everything you've been told on Sundays. Believe it or not, there exists a divine feminine aspect of Christianity, hidden from view for far too long. Mary Magdalene's gospel by which this book is inspired, says that we are not sinful and we are not to feel ashamed for being human. We are simply human, with all our flaws. A powerful message.
Women who run with the wolves Already a classic, which came out in different languages, this book reveals that within every woman lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. A Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women. This book will help you reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of her. Ready to reWild?
Everything is figureoutable: You MUST have this book. And if you do get it, get it in an audio version. It is raw and it comes from the heart. So don't be offended by some adult language. I personally look to Marie Forleo as my inspiration for empowerment and achievement and her sense of humor is brilliant. In this book, you'll learn how to follow all your dreams, how to deal with criticism, haters, and imposter syndrome and how to tell the difference between fear and intuition.
Red moon If you are ashamed to talk about your menstrual cycle, this book is for you. Did you know that for our ancestors, the menstrual cycle was a source of wonderful creative, spiritual, sexual, emotional, mental and physical energy? So now you know. With meditation practice for every menstrual phase (audio book), this book will empower every woman, young or old.
Do less Whether you are a working woman or a busy mom, if you are ready to release the culturally inherited belief that your worth is equal to your productivity, this book is for you. Do less will teach you to 'DO LESS' and create a personal and professional life filled with joy and meaning. Yes you can be and have more by doing less!
Untamed - with words by Brene Brown “Some books shake you by the shoulder while others steal your heart. In Untamed, Glennon does both at the exact same time.” This book shakes you especially if you remember being a little girl who was ''too much''. Too loud, too bad (yes, that's how they called me), too everything.
Witch - Get it if you've been called a witch, a bitch, a slut, a hag. We all have, haven't we?
