Below I have recommended books that I have read and believe are very helpful. Some are non-fictional and others are fictional with wonderful insights and tools for self-discovery, growth and self -empowerment
In full transparency I am an iBooks affiliate so if you purchase I will make a small commission.
Having said that I recommend these books because I enjoyed them myself and believe they could be beneficial for you too. Affiliating is just a smart practice :)
Many of these books I read a very long time ago, when they were first released, but I find them still relevant today and have reread them. Others I dive into again and again. A lot of similar books have been written since but are all spouting the same philosophy.
I have read plenty of books on consciousness and quantum physics and so on but here I am mainly recommending easy to read, light, yet profound and life changing, books. At the bottom of the list I may add some heavier intellectual books and will state that next to them.
If you are interested in any book just click on the title and it will take you directly to iBooks for a fuller description and prices and you can purchase and download immediately from there.
I will be adding more books so come back again.
LIST OF BOOKS
I love Eckhart Tolle's philosophy and books. If you don't read anything else on this list at least read The Power of Now.
In 'The Power of Now', Eckhart Tolle inspired millions of readers to discover the freedom and joy of a life lived “in the now.”
"This #1 New York Times bestseller [..] is powerful, direct, heartfelt and transformative, the words in The Power of Now can change readers’ lives."
Released: October 06, 2010
"In A New Earth, Tolle expands on [his] powerful ideas to show how transcending our ego-based state of consciousness is not only essential to personal happiness, but also the key to ending conflict and suffering throughout the world. Tolle describes how our attachment to the ego creates the dysfunction that leads to anger, jealousy, and unhappiness, and shows readers how to awaken to a new state of consciousness and follow the path to a truly fulfilling existence."

Another author I highly recommend. His simplicity and succinct way of helping us understand thought is life changing.
I highly recommend this book to all my clients. It helps you to truly understand the nature of thought and by doing so allows you to become the master of your mind rather than having your thoughts run your life.

This is my go to Numerology book.
I love his method and the way he includes the numbers that make up your life number. eg a 3 can be a 14-3, or as in my case a 30-3 and this has a different impact on your life.
His book is comprehensive and easy to navigate. And I find his insights extremely accurate.
"This new, revised and updated 25th Anniversary Edition reveals • all forty-five paths of life for anyone born between 1750 and the present • a precise method to determine your own life path and the paths of others."
"This book presents the method and revelations of The Life Purpose system, a modern method based on ancient wisdom that has helped hundreds of thousands of people find new meaning, purpose and direction."
These Fiction books are all still philosophy based, they have wonderful empowering insights told in light entertaining stories of adventure and the search for meaning, purpose and the pursuit of evolving as a spiritual human, empowering us to know ourselves and to realise our potential.
Another author whose many books I have read. His acclaimed success was The Alchemist and he has had many wonderful books since then. If you click on the book below you can explore his other titles. Do yourself a favour if you haven't read the Alchemist, read it first.
Another classic in this genre. This book is still popular.
"A special 25th anniversary edition of the extraordinary international bestseller, including a new Foreword by Paulo Coelho.
Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations."

I suggest you read "The Magicians Way" first to get the full benefit and understanding of this book.
"Mark Vale is back in Africa for his father's funeral. As he struggles to understand why his application of magic has caused such turmoil in his life, he is reunited with an enigmatic childhood friend. She introduces him to the fantastic world of shamanism and a deeper connection to the metaphysical forces he has yet to master.
