Resources To Improve Your Spiritual Connection & Abilities
Something you should know about me is that I am a book enthusiast! There is nothing I love more than burying my head into a good book - I'm literally Belle from Beauty & The Beast, aside from the fact that I'm human and she's a Disney cartoon character. The only thing better than a good book in my opinion is a good book that it is going to benefit me personally.
This is why recently, I have been obsessed with non-fiction books in the shape of self-help or educational. My favourite type of books are spiritual and occult books that are not only going to help me live a more enlightened life but are also going to teach me how to enhance my abilities and skills. I feel that there is always something new to learn in these categories - even if you think you know it all - trust me, you've more than likely barely skimmed the surface.
If you follow me on social media, you will know that over the Christmas period I picked up a few treasures to add to my book collection. I feel like I've learned so much from them already and I knew that I had to share with you! I've also provided links so that you can read them too!

From what I can tell from reviews, this book is a 'marmite' book, you're either going to love it or you're really going to hate it. I personally couldn't put it down, and although I can see why some people wouldn't like it, you do have to overlook some of the controversial topics and see the book for what it really is - empowerment. This isn't a witchcraft 101 kinda book but it is a book about re-awakening the witch inside of all of us. Witch oozes female empowerment and does teach some interesting facts about both old-school and modern day witchcraft. Lisa Lister has a way with words - there were some points in the book I didn't agree with, but before I could even get angry she would reel me in again. I came out of reading this book feeling empowered, enlightened and awakened. Don't be put out by reviews, if you're not sure if you're going to like it, read it anyway! Get it here.
This book wasn't bought over the Christmas period, I bought this about 2 years ago, but I had to slip it in this list because I do believe that it's worth a read. I actually purchased this book via eBook - it was cheap and I was broke (story of my life) - but I will definitely be purchasing the real thing very soon! Anyway, this book is the perfect guide to modern-day witchcraft, especially for beginners, and covers a lot of basic witchcraft needs, from altar tools, divination tools, spell work, crystal and moon magick and much more. I really love this book and do like to go back and read over it every now and again. Both Shawn Robbins and Leanna Greenaway are amazing writers and are very relatable in their stories and their writing ability. This is definitely one for the bookshelf - or eBook library! Get it here!
I actually picked this book up on a whim; I'd never heard of it before and was actually looking for something else but it caught my attention and peaked my interest so I took a chance and I purchased it. This book is about awakening your spiritual connection and your intuition and makes for an interesting read. Kyle Gray talks you through the 111 practices - numerology is important guys - to increase your connection with the spirit world and the universe. These practices will take you on a journey through the chakras - interesting, right?! - and each practice should be performed daily. I won't lie, I haven't finished these practices yet - I'm about half way through them - but so far, I have to say, I am really enjoying them and am feeling a sense of enlightenment from them. A must read! Get it here.
Astrology has never been my strong point, I'll be honest! I've been obsessed with it since I was a little girl but for some reason, I just could not wrap my head around it. I knew I wanted to incorporate it into my website but how could I when I didn't have a bloody clue what was going on. Enter this book! I don't know how or why or what, but this book made everything click into place for me! The Signs will take you through everything related to astrology, from the planets to the zodiac to the twelve houses to how to read your birth chart. In a nutshell, this book was a breakthrough for me. Now when astrology comes up in topic, I'm like 'hold my drink, I'm going in...', instead of trying to find the nearest exit to avoid the conversation, and that's all down to this book! Get it here.
This book is technically not a book, it's a journal... but it's so good and for sure my favourite buy. It's not just any journal, it's incredibly informative and talks you through everything related to the moon and it's phases. This book includes information on the moon and it's relation to magick, it talks you through each moon phase and what you should do during each one, it gives you ritual and spell ideas and it also talks you through the moon signs and what each one means. This book is an all-rounder as far as I'm concerned and if you love the moon as much as I do, I 100% recommend this journal! Get it here.
