The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
Michael A Singer
(USA: New Harbinger Publications, @NewHarbinger, 2007)

What would it be like to free yourself from limitations and soar beyond your boundaries? What can you do each day to discover inner peace and serenity? The Untethered Soul offers simple yet profound answers to these questions.

Whether this is your first exploration of inner space, or you’ve devoted your life to the inward journey, this book will transform your relationship with yourself and the world around you. You’ll discover what you can do to put an end to the habitual thoughts and emotions that limit your consciousness. By tapping into traditions of meditation and mindfulness, author and spiritual teacher Michael A Singer shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realisation.

The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
Eckhart Tolle
(UK: Yellow Kite, @YellowKiteBooks, 2001; USA: Namaste Publishing, @namastebooks, 2004)

Much more than simple principles and platitudes, this book takes readers on an inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light.

Eckhart Tolle introduces readers to enlightenment and its natural enemy: the mind. He awakens readers to their role as a creator of pain and shows them how to have a pain-free identity by living fully in the present. The journey is thrilling, and along the way, the author shows how to connect to the indestructible essence of our Being, ‘the eternal, ever-present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.’

Live Love Dream
Ionut Iulian Ungureanu
(UK: Conscious Dreams Publishing, @DreamsConscious, 2018)

Do you feel like you are going around in circles, forever facing the same challenges? Are you struggling, feeling stuck or constantly on a search for true happiness? Do you want to learn how to tap into that inner power you have deep inside and actually change your circumstances?

Transformational Coach, Ionut Iulian Ungureanu’s Live Love Dream is a comprehensive roadmap designed to guide you through your own innate ability to tap into your own power and step into your greatness. Through sharing his own personal story and experience as an orphan in Romania, Ionut opens up a river of limiting belief systems that were responsible for holding him back in adulthood and shows us how we too can powerfully deal with our own limiting belief systems.

Pitted against the indescribable poverty and rejection in his childhood, Iulian shows us how he traversed that landscape of trauma and, from his own experience, teaches us how to realign ourselves with the powerful motivating forces of intent, desire and determination.
