Over the course of my spiritual journey, I have read countless books. If there’s a book on self-help, personal growth, wellness, or manifesting, believe me, I’ve read it.
Thinking about this past year—and let’s face it, 2020 was a rough year for all of us—it’s time to start fresh. As I was preparing for the 2021 Manifesting Challenge, I started thinking about some of the books that really made an impact and guided me on my path. I’m excited to share them with you today.
True manifesting is allowing the Universe to catch up with your dreams. I believe you can practice manifesting to attract whatever you want, whether that’s a successful business, good health, a relationship or even a material object. These books will help you along the way!
TOP 4 BOOKS FOR MANIFESTING
Manifest Your Destiny: The Nine Spiritual Principles for Getting Everything You Want, by Dr. Wayne Dyer
Every choice you make is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. But the amazing thing is you get to choose. That is what my late friend and teacher, Dr. Wayne Dyer, simply yet beautifully teaches in Manifest Your Destiny. He dedicated his life’s work to self-development and spiritual growth, and took manifestation seriously.
Within the pages of this book, he teaches the process of meditation as a way to streamline your thoughts, desires and goals. You’ll learn how to overcome barriers, such as fear and ego, with his nine spiritual principles. After reading this book, you’ll have more spiritual awareness, reconnect with the world, trust yourself, accept your worth, and let go of demands.
I read this book early on my spiritual path and it set me up to become a masterful manifester. I have it on my desk and I open it often for hits of inspiration.
“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”—Dr. Wayne Dyer
Super Attractor by (me!) Gabby Bernstein
I know this is a shameless plug, but Super Attractor is a really great manifesting book! In my book, I lay out the essential steps for living in alignment with the Universe. This book is a journey of remembering where your true power lies. You’ll learn how to co-create the life you want. You’ll accept that life can flow, that attracting is fun, and that you don’t have to work so hard to get what you want. Most importantly, you’ll feel good. And when you feel good, you give off an energy of joy that elevates everyone around you.
Super Attractor is a manifesto for confidently claiming your desires. You’ll learn how to:
- Do less and attract more.
- Relax and trust that what you desire is on the way.
- Know that spiritual guidance is available to you at all times.
- Feel a sense of awe each day as you witness miracles unfold.
After reading this book, you will know how to fulfill your function: to be a force of love in the world.

Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires by Esther and Jerry Hicks
As Esther Hicks so eloquently put it, “If you want it and expect it, it will be yours very soon.” Ask and It Is Given presents the teachings of the nonphysical entity Abraham and helps you learn how to manifest your desires so that you’re living the joyous and fulfilling life you deserve.
The book describes 22 processes to achieve your goals. So whatever you need, there is a process to tap into and help guide you. You’ll come to understand that your life—and everyone’s in the Universe—is playing the part that has been assigned to them. You can literally script any life that you desire, and the Universe will deliver everything you manifest them to be. You’ll learn that you are the creator of your own experience—you only have to decide it and allow it to be.
My favorite Abraham/Hicks quote is, ‘There is only a stream of well-being that flows. You can allow it, or resist it, but it flows just the same.”
In my forthcoming 21-day Manifesting Challenge I teach one of my all time favorite methods that I learned from Abraham/Hicks. The method is all about tapping into appreciation to create more of what you want. Check out the Manifesting Challenge here.
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
There’s a reason that this book is among the 10 bestselling self-help books of all time. Right now, financial fear and insecurity is at an all-time high. Think and Grow Rich is all about learning how to use the law of attraction for your abundance. Hill explains that before success comes in anyone’s life, they are often met with temporary defeat, and even failure. But, we should not wait. The time will never be just right. You’ll learn that if you start where you stand and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, you’ll see that better tools will be found as you go along. Hill wants us to remember, “The way of success is the way of continuous pursuit of knowledge. Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit. When your desires are strong enough, you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.”
