A Path of Spiritual Growth
As you may know, your body is made up of energy, and there are seven gateways that allow energy to flow freely between your body and the universe. These Chakras each have a different function and directly relate to the health of your physical, emotional, and spiritual body.
Starting from the ground up, your Root Chakra is first at the very bottom of your spine. Your highest Chakra, your Crown Chakra, sits at the top of your head.
All seven of the major energy centers in the body work together to create balance and harmony throughout your system. This means that a block in one of your lower Chakras can create an imbalance in all the Chakras that follow.
So while your Crown Chakra specifically deals with meditation, spirituality, and your connection to the universe, all of your energy centers need to be healthy in order for you to grow spiritually.
Keeping that in mind, there are many different paths that you can take to heal your Chakras, some of which you can find in other articles on my blog, and others you can find in some of the below books.
Before embarking on your journey to spiritual growth, you may want to be sure that your body is healed of any illness or disease that manifests deep inside you. With my 5 High Powered Healing Techniques, you can learn easy ways to bring your body back into alignment.

No matter where you are on your journey, you’ll find a book that is perfect for aiding your spiritual growth. Let’s dive right in.

Thich Nhat Hanh is a world-renowned Zen Master and spiritual leader who provides accessible exercises that will guide you to increase your awareness of both body and mind. The techniques of conscious breathing that he teaches in Peace Is Every Step can bring you immediate joy and completeness.
It’s easy to lose touch with ourselves in the world we live in today, so it is essential to discover (or rediscover) those deep feelings of joy and peace that arise from being conscious of the breath.
“It begins where the reader already is (kitchen, office, driving a car, walking in a park) and shows how deep meditative presence is available now… Through deceptively simple practices, Peace Is Every Step encourages the reader to work for peace in the world as he or she continues to work on sustaining inner peace by turning the "mindless" into the mindful. Peace Is Every Step is a useful, and necessary, addition to any Buddhist studies or self-help reference shelf.”

If You Love a Good Story...
By Paulo Coelho
Take your mind on a journey in this mystical tale about a shepherd boy named Santiago, who dreams of traveling in search of worldly treasure. Through a narrative tale, Coelho weaves in a lesson on the importance of listening to your own heart in order to cultivate a sense self-awareness.
This tale of self-discovery shows you how to read the signs that life presents you and become self-empowered to follow your dreams. Author Paulo Coelho has created an international delight that remained on the New York Times bestseller list for 360 weeks.
“The story has the comic charm, dramatic tension and psychological intensity of a fairy tale, but it's full of specific wisdom as well, about becoming self-empowered, overcoming depression, and believing in dreams. The cumulative effect is like hearing a wonderful bedtime story from an inspirational psychiatrist. Comparisons to The Little Prince are appropriate; this is a sweetly exotic tale for young and old alike.”

Nepo draws from his own spiritual journey of fighting cancer to create the poetic entries that invite the reader to become more alive and awake to their everyday life. He covers life’s essential topics like freedom, friendship, spirit, and joy.
“After each entry, Nepo offers a short list of suggestions or questions to help carry the essay into the day. There are many inspirational daybooks out there. What sets this one apart is the mature poet's voice rising from a seasoned soul.”

If You Want a Step-By-Step Guide…
Spiritual Growth: Being Your Higher Self
By Sanaya Roman
Those who are looking for the true essence of the spiritual path should look no further than this book. Each and every page has the power to quiet the mind, soothe the soul, and grow your spirit.
Roman teaches readers how to live life as the highest version of themselves and clarify life’s highest purpose. Each of the 21 chapters includes a meditation to guide you along your spiritual journey, and shows you how to manifest your desires quickly and easily.
“Spiritual Growth seeks to strip us of blinders, to see good even in those we don't like, to find love within us, to use the power of enveloping ourselves in light and then transmitting that light out to someone we want to reach. It's a spiritual book, but not kooky in the sense that it asks us to go into a lotus position or climb some mountain to find nirvana…
“Roman is a practical spiritualist, saying to the reader to stop in the middle of a trying day and take a deep breath, to reach inside to find a direction. The mind is a wonderful storehouse of energy, Roman believes, just waiting to be unleashed for our personal benefit."
— The Tribune, Colorado Press
