“A Year On Your Path to Grow: Daily Inspirations to Reconnect With Your Soul,” by Keri Nola

The importance of a daily spiritual practice to connect us with our higher self and a higher power can’t be stressed enough. Whether its meditation, prayer, chanting, yoga or journaling, a daily spiritual practice can ground, center and strengthen us to tackle anything that comes our way.

One way to begin is to read something inspirational every morning to start the day on a positive note, and “A Year On Your Path to Grow: Daily Inspirations to Reconnect With Your Soul,” by Keri Nola is the perfect fit! Founder of Path to Growth LLC, a Central Florida-based integrative healing center that blends traditional and holistic techniques for journeys to peace, Nola offers 365 inspirational thoughts starting January 1 and ending December 31.

Each chapter is a new month and a new theme, such as February’s topic “Wrap Yourself in Love,” or April’s topic “Intention and Manifestation.” As a licensed mental health counselor, Nola offers thought-provoking and inspiring passages to awaken the soul within to the divine guidance available to us all. It’s like having your own personal life coach offering you advice and inspiration every day!

For example, the April 9 entry reads:

“What you think about, you bring about. When we spend our time and energy thinking about what’s “wrong” and “bad” in our lives, we miss the opportunity to spend our time and energy creating what feels “right” and “good.” Today, when you notice your mind visiting the “what if’s” and the potential catastrophes, acknowledge the fear and then balance it with something you’re grateful for…notice the shift.”

And the August 18 passage is as follows:

“Remember that there are no experts outside of us on the inner journey. Give yourself permission to get quiet and go within today to strengthen your relationship with your wise, intuitive self…after all, this is your most powerful resource!”

Whether you start at the beginning, turn to the day’s actual date, or just let the universe guide you as you open to a random page, this book can serve as an invaluable tool to those on the path to reconnect with spirit!
