This list of highly transformational and inspiring books, videos, magazines, and poems was compiled by the founder of PEERS, Fred Burks. First are seven concise essays which total only 14 pages, yet contain incredible gems of wisdom. Following are inspiring videos, books, and poems which have also touched my life in profound ways.
By opening to powerful transformation from within, we can feel more connected with all around us and more effectively join in transforming both our personal lives and the world around us through love, inspiration, and empowerment.

Transform Your Finances. If you are ready for some deep transformation around finances, I invite you to learn about a concrete, yet very easy way you can help to end poverty through microcredit (also called microfinance or microlending). I recommend educating yourself and others about this highly empowering movement. When we focus less on making more and more on better using what we have for the good of all, our lives can't help but transform. And when we are in full integrity with our use of money, we can deeply transform our lives and planet.

Most Inspiring and Transformational Books: The single most transformative book I've read in recent years is Michael Newton's Journey of Souls. Newton, a PhD and certified Master Hypnotherapist, initially set out to debunk claims of reincarnation. He ended up becoming the premiere expert on life between lives, i.e. what happens from the moment of death until the time of rebirth. This book gives fascinating verbatim transcripts of dozens of people's journeys exploring their time between lives. I can almost guarantee you will be both highly intrigued and inspired.
And other deeply moving book is Cosmic Journeys by Rosalind McKnight (available at amazon.com). I thought I had a fairly deep understanding of life and existence until I read this book and three others by Robert Monroe (of the Monroe Institute) that go along with it. I was blown away at how much these books expanded my awareness and allowed me to relax and enjoy life more.
Those with a more analytical frame of reference might prefer one of the three books by Robert Monroe over Cosmic Journeys. To purchase one of the these, click on the title here: Journeys Out of Body, Far Journeys, and Ultimate Journey. All four books are ranked either 4 1/2 or 5 stars out of five on amazon.com. If you are skeptical about the possibility of being able to travel out of body, I recommend starting with Journeys Out of Body. Otherwise, start with either Far Journeys or the above-mentioned Cosmic Journeys.
Another exciting, paradigm-busting book is The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot. This landmark book beautifully depicts scientifically and philosophically how everything is much more interconnected than we are led to believe. Using cutting-edge scientific experiments revealing the holographic nature of our minds and universe, Talbot shows how powerful our minds are in shaping the reality we live in. Chapter four's amazing examples of miracle healing is especially engaging. Very well researched with lots of footnotes. An excellent summary is available here.
