We actively co-create our lives. Sometimes we need new, different, or more information in order to update the way we interact with the world to create what we desire. This is part of the conscious work.
I recommend checking out books from the library and supporting your local book shop first. If you shop on-line, Bookshop.org supports independent booksellers. I receive a small commission from books purchased through my shop link.
Some of these books are also available in audio format.
Your Energetic Boundaries: How to Stay Protected and Connected in Work, Love, and Life by Cyndi Dale -Just as our physical body is protected by our skin, our psyche and spirit have "energetic boundaries" that keep out harmful influences.

My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor -A look at how our brain hemispheres shape our reality via Dr. Taylor's journey, as a brain anatomist, experiencing and recovering from a stroke.
