During the fall of 2020, I began menopause after a rough five years in perimenopause. I had written my first book the summer before and felt like it was a healing process. It was after I sent it to my friend and editor that I had found a book that changed the course of my life. Through this one book, I began a maze of books that began my healing from the inside out, which I dubbed “soul homework”.
A few months after I sent my book to my friend to edit, I had a gut feeling that I needed her to stop editing. Unbeknownst to me, she could only edit the preface and first chapter of the book. When I went back and re-read the entire book, it was bad. Like, terrible. I had written from a perspective that I didn’t even recognize, and I was a bit shocked at the words in front of me. The person I used to be would have given up on my book, but this new person decided to re-write the book. The rest, as they say, is history. I am deciding to rewrite my history in the best possible way.
In the “worst” year of our lives, I finally learned to be present in my life and I wanted to share it with all of you. I began writing Universe-Ism posts, but only occasionally so as not to scare the hell out of my readers because I am a humor writer. But this shit was too good to be true, and as someone with mental health stuff going on in her brain, I knew others could benefit from what I was learning.
So enjoy the books I am sharing here. There are affiliate links which means if you click any of the links I will get a small portion of the profits but that isn’t why I am sharing these here. If that is something that bothers you, click a different browser, and order it on your own. I am totally down with that, I just want you to get this information.
Enjoy the journey!
These are the books I read, in the order that I read them.
I will add more books as I finish them.
Ageless Body, Timeless Mind by Deepak Chopra (I have to be honest, this one was too deep for me, so I didn’t finish it. But I love Deepak Chopra and plan to choose another one of his books. But I have a picture of the book and for full disclosure, I needed to share the book here).
