Dr. Aly’s Library: Books + Card Decks for a Metaphysical, Holistic and Spiritual Lifestyle
A note for you, before you venture into my Library…
When it comes to books and card decks that are Metaphysical, Holistic and Spiritual in nature, I’m not interested in impractical, fluffy, or ungrounded information (and my library selections reflect this). In my view, there is a fine line between Spirituality and people selling you what I call the, “feel good feels”, through the products that they market as being “Spiritual or Self-Help”. I’m not personally into concepts or practices that don’t enrich my human relationships and bring more meaning and fulfillment to my human experiences. For me, Metaphysics, Holistic Healing, and Spirituality are opportunities for self-care, self-empowerment and personal growth (which, in my view, REQUIRES level-headed thinking and a grounded approach), so I take these topics and practices very seriously, while of course, still keeping things fun!
In the list that I share below, I have only provided a list of books, audio books and card decks that I personally use, and have truly taken value from! Enjoy each for what they are, and always remember that these are not meant to tell you how Life or The Universe works, or what you should believe, but more so how to open up to your own thoughts and experiences, so that you can discover your own path, passions, and personal truth!
The Answer is Simple – Oracle Card Deck and Guide Book, by Sonia Choquette
This was the first oracle card deck that I purchased and used for myself, early on in my self care and self healing journey, and it is the deck that I still recommend to people who are just beginning their spiritual journey. It’s a beautiful beginners deck, and the guidance shared within it is presented in a way that is practical, grounded and simple to interpret. It is a deck that is rich in loving and supportive messages, and it does a brilliant job at helping you stay heart-centered, and in alignment with the things in life that truly matter. A perfect deck for daily use, without all of the woo-woo fluff and pixie dust! *This is NOT an Affiliate Link.
