The best books to manifest and attract your dreams and desires

Who am I?

I am and always will be a teacher. For the past 25 years, I dedicated my life to inspiring students to achieve their goals and manifest their dreams. I finally decided to take my own advice and listen to the calling that has been ringing louder and louder over the years. I used my gifts to become a certified Law of Attraction coach, reiki practitioner, and Tarot reader. While I may have left the academic classroom, I was called to the world classroom. As an author, speaker, coach, and healer, I awaken the manifestation superpower that exists in all of us.

Living Your Own Aloha: 5 Steps to Manifesting Your Dreams

By Kelly Weaver,

Book cover of Living Your Own Aloha: 5 Steps to Manifesting Your Dreams

What is my book about?

The Hawaiian word "Aloha" evokes an image of white, sandy beaches and cool tropical breezes, but the significance of the word goes beyond a mere greeting and farewell. Aloha encapsulates all of the love, peace, compassion, and affection one feels when connected to the vibrational energy of the islands. The word is a definition of the force that holds together our very existence. Author and certified Law of Attraction coach, Kelly Weaver shares candid stories of her own struggles and successes through her journey of manifestation and personal growth as she learned to embrace aloha in her life.

With keen insight into the universal law that "like attracts like," she uses a mnemonic device and "Inspired Assignments", to guide readers through her process of self-reflection and discovery.

The Secret

By Rhonda Byrne,

Book cover of The Secret

Why this book?

In 2009, I dislocated and broke my ankle in the Honolulu airport. Bedridden after surgery, I remembered a friend had given me a copy of The Secret. I read it in one sitting and had an epiphany! I have been manifesting my entire life but didn’t know that it’s name was Law of Attraction. This book catapulted me on my spiritual journey and forever changed my life. I realized I am a deliberate creator and can manifest any desire I want. 


Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires

By Esther Hicks, Jerry Hicks,

Book cover of Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires

Why this book?

This book was on a suggested reading list when I was becoming a certified law of attraction coach. It is one of the few books that remains on my desk because I reference it frequently. The authors channel a “spirit” named Abraham who shares his teachings. As a former teacher, I love that this book provides 22 tangible processes to manifest any desire that one holds. All of the processes will enhance your life in a positive way. I have taught these processes to my own clients and even developed my own process from Abraham’s teachings. 


Think and Grow Rich

By Napoleon Hill,

Book cover of Think and Grow Rich

Why this book?

After reading this book, I realized that I was actually repelling wealth. In order to transform your reality, you need to reprogram your subconscious mind. What you think becomes reality. The author teaches specific principles but it is up to the reader to apply them. You’ll need to write daily goals and affirm them aloud daily. My copy is full of highlights, notes, and annotations. There are too many nuggets of wisdom to mention. If you want to attract abundance in your life, this is the first book you need to read!


The Desire Factor: How to Embrace Your Materialistic Nature to Reclaim Your Full Spiritual Power

By Christy Whitman,

Book cover of The Desire Factor: How to Embrace Your Materialistic Nature to Reclaim Your Full Spiritual Power

Why this book?

Finally, an author who gives me permission to have anything materialistically that I desire and not feel guilty about wanting it! Growing up in a religious household, I was taught that it was selfish to want anything that exceeded my physical needs. In fact, desire is part of human nature, and it is a necessary step in the manifestation process. This book explores 7 Universal Principles to manifest any desire one has. The key is to become a master of your own energy.  


The Game of Life and How to Play It: The Complete Original Edition

By Florence Scovel Shinn, Joel Fotinos (contributor),

Book cover of The Game of Life and How to Play It: The Complete Original Edition

Why this book?

This is the OG of all law of attraction books. Many of Shinn’s principles have been used by modern authors who don’t give her credit where credit is due. “Your word is your wand” is one of the many expressions that I have highlighted in this book. When I need motivation or a reminder that I am a deliberate creator, I will pick up this book and re-read one of the many inspirational stories. Shinn’s teachings helped me release limiting beliefs and reprogram my subconscious mind, so I can manifest anything I desire.
