If you’re anything like me, your new year’s resolutions usually include some sort of “I will read x-number of books” goal. Here are a few of my faves that I’d recommend for your 2012 reading list.
I’m a self-professed book addict, so I’d love to know what else are you reading that is rockin’ your world right now! Leave me a note in the comments section below.

You Can Heal Your Life is the book I continue to return to, for myself and my clients. As Louise says, it really is quite simple: most of our challenges in life stem from not loving our Self. Here, she offers the metaphysical equation for how our emotions affect our health, prosperity and well-being.
Breaking Clean is fiercely good literature. It’s a series of essays that tells the story of living authentically, sustaining the courage to go against the cultural grain and speaking what is uniquely true for you. You may not have come from a ranch in Montana, but you will see yourself in Judy’s struggle to break free. Judy was one of my advisors in grad school and her essays ring true to the strength and faith she maintains.
Ok, so this book doesn’t even come out until April, but I added The Fire Starter Sessions to my list because, having worked with Danielle one on one, I guarantee it will transform your success.
Who, but Ellen Bass, could write such a gorgeous poem entitled “God and the G-Spot”? Ellen’s poetry takes the mundane in life and highlights its most graceful, intimate side. The Human Line includes one of my favorite of her poems, “Gate C22.”
The Book of Awakening is a daily guidebook to opening to the wonder of each day, and seeing the transcendent in the the ordinary. It’s another book I continue to read through year after year. You can listen to my interview with the author, Mark Nepo, here.
Admittedly, I was late to the party celebrating The War of Art. When I read it last year, I highlighted most of the book. It’s a slim volume, but absolutely packed with insight. Plus, it offers up the challenge to confront all of the resistance that has been holding you back from truly shining.
Colin Tipping offers a new way of looking at forgiveness that I find helpful. He calls it Radical Forgiveness because he actually suggests that there is no need for forgiveness. It’s like Sacred Contracts meets Many Lives, Many Masters (two more important books to check out if you haven’t read them yet).
