My Favorite Reads for Healing
these have helped me personally to Level UP
This was by far the most helpful of all the books
I found it very comforting to know boundaries from a Christian perspective. After reading the scripture references I also did my own research in my personal study resources and found it enlightening to say the least. If you'd like more information on my sources please contact me and incorporate some of this information in my Gentle Boundaries course

** Language alert on this one
I suggest the website is a great reference if you don't want to invest in the book. It was especially helpful for me to learn the four trauma types and how to shrink my inner critic which I incorporate into my Fully Claim Your Life Course

This is by the same author as Boundaries and I scanned the book without comprehensive study. It helped me get a grasp on the idea that some people are safe for me and how to connect with them.

Dr Perkus, who created the Aroma Freedom Technique, wrote a book so individuals can guide themselves through a full session. It also provides some great information on how memories get stuck and how we can memory reconsolidation.
This book comes with a free assessment and focuses on expanding your strengths. Many assessments I experienced in corporate management focused on finding what'd wrong and fixing it. This one focuses purely on your top 5 and how to empower growth which is the focus of my Fully Claim Your Life Course

I'm including this book because clearing physical clutter helped me emotionally and mentally. There were many things I kept out of obligation not because I enjoyed or even liked them. This was part of my journey when I was redefining myself as I share in my Fully Claim Your Life Course

This helped me begin to understand boundaries and how to speak. Still, I had to adjust and learn to speak gentle boundaries more in line with my nature and moral compass so I started to develop what I now call Gentle Boundaries

This helped me understand others are not my responsibility and how to surrender being a "fixer" even when others expect me to solve their problems for them. It helped me understand how to empower and validate others who wish to have that type of balanced support.

New Reads
For 2021 learning these concepts to Level UP my service to others! 
This book is completely Leveling UP my Emotional Balance course and emotional healing in a brand new way. Exploring polyvagal theory improved my emotional healing techniques I offer others in my Aroma Freedom sessions and my Level UP sessions

This one is new for me in 2022 and I incorporate the concept into my Level UP sessions and program because saying affirmations as a "why" questions prompts the brain into solution oriented thinking. Combining this with Aroma Reset has completely changed how I'm able to flow through every day with ease
Aroma Freedom for children by Tammy Hawksworth is an excellent way to step your child through connecting with themselves and staying calm

This is written by my sister in the faith and has brought me such comfort as someone who is very "in tune" to my surrounding and the energy and feelings of others. While some make things like HSP and empath all "woowoo" the concept is solidly based in science. If you've ever heard the words "you're too sensitive" then check out the book description and see if this is for you.
