Best Books For Empaths in 2022

Spiritual Reading List


Over the last 5 years I’ve worked privately with several hundred clients, most every single one an empath. In fact, as I write this update, I can’t think of one that wasn’t.

I take notes on all the similarities that clients are challenged by..  It’s how I can best serve  you, and others, in their healing, growth and expansion.

More than anything else, having spent so many years in pain, illness and struggle, it is my passion to teach others, (especially empaths like me), that there is indeed a much simpler route to wholeness and the desires that you seek. 

I took the long road out.  And the only thing I can blame it on is ignorance. I didn’t know what I didn’t know. 

Being an empath is a GIFT!  

Choose it to be true for yourself and watch the Universe support you in every way to live healthy, grounded and centered. 

I feel incredibly grateful that the one thing I could rely on was the fact that I knew the Truth when I heard it. And my bullshit meter has always been finely tuned and oiled. 

That is what kept me moving forward to uncover these books that I know am including in this post. 

They will help you LEVEL UP quickly, if you are ready to let go of the small stuff and step into the GRACE of living as an empath, so you can be the POWER HOUSE you came here to be…

Living in health, well-being, success, and joy. 



Mastering the Four Essential Trusts: Trust in Self, Trust in God, Trust in Others, Trust in Life

Now more than ever this is a timely book to help us regain our sense of balance in life. Our trust has been shaken on so many levels in the last two years.   This is a powerful book for shifting our perception of life so we can feel confident to trust ourselves and others as we maneuver creating our wellbeing and desires.

Working With The Law

Learning and understanding how to work with the 11 Spiritual Laws is a game changer. What I’ve witnessed over the last 10 years is how many people stay stuck in struggle and the past because they have no idea about these laws. They are Truth teachings that have been in existence for 100 of years.  Once you learn them, you will have the tools to you need to create whatever it is you desire. Without them, you remain in the mindset of ignorance. 

You Too, Can Be Prosperous

So many empaths struggle with unworthiness and scarcity mindset. 

This book teaches the true principles for creating wealth. I tried my best to follow the mainstream law of attraction principles. with little to no success.  And then I learned that the law of attraction wasn’t even a primary Spiritual Law. And I was being mis-taught. 

Spiritual Bypassing : When Spirituality Disconnects Us from What Really Matters

Oh, the damage I’ve seen done by spiritual bypassing.  Who knew there was such a thing. I didn’t until I read this.  A REAL eye-opener for most empaths, and one of the most empowering books you will ever read if your desire is to awaken your consciousness and create your life with 100% responsibility. 


My Previous Recommendations Are Below.  

I get asked all the time…What are the best spiritual books for empaths?

Honestly,  having owned a metaphysical/spiritual book and gift store…  choosing just 12 books from my list of faves is no easy task.

And being an author myself…you’d think I’d want to place my book at the top of this list.  But it’s because of these 12 books and the growth they helped me experience, that I was able to write my book!

I Love books!  And I love reading.

But for certain, a few short cuts on the spiritual healing and development path would have been really nice when I was deep in my “stuff”.

Of course, the Universe has always got our backs, but you know those times when you stumble on a book and you wish you  had found it two years earlier?

Well, these are those books…..

The ones that have timeless wisdom with really practical insights to help you get ” through it and to it” with more ease and grace.

There comes a time  on the healing path when you hit the “tipping point” and you become integrated with everything you’ve read.   Instead of reading about becoming the Light, you realize that you are the Light…and you won’t really need to read about it very much.

These are those books… The ones that accelerated my understanding and integration of living as my true divine self….a light-filled, happy and confident empath…serving God Source and my purpose.

Happy reading friends!!

Best Spiritual Books

12 must-haves for Empaths and Lightworkers

Your Soul’s Plan 

This is the book that will shift your fear, confusion, or misunderstanding about circumstances that may have happened in your life.    Robert Schwartz enlists the skills of three psychic mediums to peer into agreements and karma with a loving consciousness.

So often we believe in our 3D existence that God is punishing us by inflicting a particular illness or challenge on our lives. This couldn’t be farther from the Truth.  

This book will help you understand why you or a loved one could choose certain life circumstances in order to advance your Soul’s evolution.

Exploring the pre-birth planning of life challenges you’ll be savvy to the Soul’s agreements that you planned before you came here. 

A New Earth

You know….there’s that person that just gets your goat?  The one that keeps showing up in your life. Often a parent or sibling, that keeps opening wounds time and time again.   Here too, lies the biggest opportunity for you to surrender to your divinity and awaken to your life’s purpose.  

Eckhart Tolle gives us the path of surrender and freedom from the ego.  How to fully embrace our higher self and live from a place of peace, love, joy, and contentment.   He encourages us to live in the present moment to create happiness for ourselves.  His intent is uniquely aligned with empaths and lightworkers.  Encouraging one to change the way they think and therefore, envision a world that is increasingly humble and pure light.

Opening To Channel

Most of all, I found this book so inspirational, and easy-to-use.

It’s a guide to the art of channeling. You can use the methods detailed to open to channel a guide or your higher self. Opening to Channel includes practical hands-on instruction in how to know if you are ready to channel. Also, how to attract a high-level guide, go into a channeling state, and channel for friends or yourself.  Hence, you learn to use channeling to expand your consciousness, and open to the higher dimensions.   Safe, grounded techniques for opening to the higher realms of Love and Light.

Your Soul’s Gift

The sequel to Your Soul’s Plan.  But with more in depth discussions and even a chapter for pet lovers.  You can learn about agreements that you have made with your pets to advance your soul’s development.

If we live in a loving Universe – and I firmly believe that we do, why would any soul create a life plan that has trauma in it?   Essentially, challenges on the physical plane can catalyze deep, soul-level healing.  Robert’s second book intends anyone who has had traumatic experiences will find healing in this book.  

Light Emerging

So many books on my healing path never seemed to have a high-enough vibration for me.  That is, they didn’t help advance me to the highest level of physical and spiritual healing.  Until I read and used Light Emerging!

She takes ancient knowledge, pairs it with her own modern life experience, study and practice.  Brennan formats it in a modern, western “scientific” format. That is to say, she logically breaks down everything.  She removes mystical terminology without taking anything away from the subject matter.

Buy it, study it, practice it, find your own journey.  The first time you see a vortex of energy-consciousness spinning over somebody’s head or a glowing halo of light you will know you’re on the right track.  You’re on the track to finding out who we are, why we are here.  You’ll know how you can feel better about your life and be successful in your creative endeavors, including healing illness in yourself.

The God That We’ve Created: the basic cause of all disease

I had the rich experience to work with Michelle when I lived in Austin, TX.  In this book she explains that we were never intended to live with pain, misery, suffering, and tears.  This book reveals that disease and all suffering, is a learned experience, and therefore, can be unlearned.  

Living life as a highly sensitive empath and lightworker can feel daunting. Unless you’ve come to learn and understand the true nature of our existence. However, life is only difficult if we bow to lies and deceit. Michele breaks down the un-truths.  She shows us why we are here and how we can live this life in wholeness.  

Entering the Castle

And then there’s the book that you pick up and put down. And pick up and put down — many, many times. Because you know that it’s going to change your life.  And you need to change your life. You want to change your life.  But you’re scared, in a good way. 

This was/is that book. Rich with seven stages of intense practices and methods of spiritual inquiry.  You’ll develop your personal powers of prayer, contemplation, and intuition.  Which in turn help you build a soul of strength and stamina.  With stories and inspiration from mystics of all traditions, Entering the Castle is a comprehensive guide for the journey of your life.  A journey into the center of your soul.  Where, peace, God, and  joy wait for you. 

Women , Food, and God

If you want peace within your body, about your body then this is the book to read.  If you want to finally stop obsessing about food and diets, this is the book to read.   As a result of trying nearly every single meal plan that has been marketed in the last 30 years, this is the book that gave me the freedom to love my body.  And to finally eat to nourish myself on every level!  Witty, yet deeply profound approach to healing our collective dysfunctions around food and our diet-culture.  Furthermore, the principles in this book can help men and women to make lasting change not just around food but nearly any area of life.

The Heart’s Code

Try as we might to power through life with our brains in charge of everything, that is definitely not a good plan for an empath.  And yet, so often it seems like we do the opposite.  And as a result, check out of our heart and body so we don’t have to feel so much.  You know that the heart loves and feels.  But did you know that the heart also thinks? In addition, it remembers, communicates with other hearts, helps regulate immunity?  And contains stored information that continually pulses through your body?   

Most noteworthy are the anecdotes and stories in The Heart’s Code.  Most of all, you’ll spend more of your life centered in your open heart after reading this book.  Because of the blend of ancient wisdom, modern medicine, scientific research, and personal experiences that prove that the human heart, not the brain, holds the secrets that link body, mind, and spirit.  You’ll want to get out of your head and tap into the amazing power of heart energy.

Eat, Taste, Heal

Why would I include a “cookbook” in my list of the top 12 spiritual books? Because it is an incredibly clear and simple introduction into the energetic healing properties of food, and all of Life.  I have been a Clinical Ayurveda Practitioner for 10 years and  “Eat.Taste.Heal” demystifies this ancient healing science…the world’s first and most ancient system of health and healing, from India.  

It is a vast system but this beautifully illustrated book offers clear and simple information so you learn to nourish your body based on your own unique needs and body type….365/24/7 according to the seasons.  Instead of following that latest fads this is good solid information on how to create balance based on the energetic properties of food.  

Infinite Possibilities

For many empaths, growing up in dysfunctional, abusive, and alcoholic families…we were too busy putting out emotional fires  to create the dream of a better or different life!   We were never taught the true nature of the Divine and Infinite Intelligence that exists….just waiting for us to tap into it.

We were in survival mode, not a blissful dream state!  Mike Dooley presents a new idea, a new approach for empaths to kindle the Divine flames of possibilities. Manifesting the magnificence of our dreams isn’t about hard work, but rather about belief and expectation.  With this book you can transcend belief, realizing the truth about your human nature.  This book helped me tap into new beliefs for myself and my life.  To exercise my dream muscle.  No one in my family every encouraged me to have a dream…but this book changed all that.  It ALL starts with a dream!

Esoteric Healing

In this book the seven ray techniques of healing are described; the laws and rules of healing are enumerated and discussed; the requirements for healing are given in detail; and basic causes of disease are shown.

You’ll learn that much disease can be karmic in origin; that certain diseases are inherent in the soil and in the substance of the planet; and that many others are psychological, arising in the emotional or mental bodies. Thus, the need for a total and comprehensive understanding both of the patient and of the correct and safe methods of healing.

We are also given a true understanding of death as the abstraction, or the withdrawal, of the soul from the body to continue life on its own plane without the limitation of the body, until a new cycle of incarnation and experience in form is necessary.

Healed and Unlimited

When I first wrote this guide for healing chronic illness and pain…

I wanted to reach every single person that was a victim to pain clinics and western medicine, as I was for 10 long years.   But about 6 months after it’s release I realized that it was not intended for “mainstream”  healing, but rather for empaths and lightworkers.

It is your guide…the empath’s and lightworker’s guide to healing their physical bodies through the Infinite Intelligence and Divine Love.   You will read how I reversed addictions and 10 years of daily chronic pain and living in a wheelchair….and how you can do the same by opening yourself to the true essence of your heart and soul.

You’ll learn the real and tangible vibrational healing modalities I used to completely shift my consciousness and the trajectory of my life and my healing path.

Let Yourself Be Guided From Within  

Ultimately, the truth is found within you. For me, I find it exhilarating and beneficial to read about spirituality and the awakening process. I recommend following your heart. When you go to a bookstore or you’re browsing on Amazon, notice what stands out to you.    Or if a theme , author, or title keeps coming up for you, know that you are being guided and your Guides, Angels, and higher self are aligning you with the books that will help you in that moment.

These are books that have been helpful for me on my spiritual and healing path and there are so many more.

Happy Reading!  Enjoy!  (And leave me a comment when you finish reading one of the books on this list. Let me know how it helped you)
