“Food shared with love satisfies the palate, brings connection to one another and delivers joy to the heart."

Modern Day Cynthia shares some of her many books that have inspired her and may inspire you too!

I just love books! My dad gave me my first positive thinking book when I was ten and I’ve been hooked every since. It was the Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale – how one’s thoughts create our reality and if you can believe it you can achieve it. My father who was the son of Immigrant parents – and didn’t go to college said whenever he wanted to learn something he would see if there was a book written on it and there usually was. I feel the same way. I love reading a good book and I have quite an extensive library of books that have inspired me. Thank goodness for my library card because I’ve run out of bookcase space to hold more books. I see myself as an archaeologist of the soul – who enjoys unearthing my soul’s essence and inspiring others to discover the treasures within. Books have had a very positive impact on my life, which is part of the reason I was inspired to write my first book Diary of A Modern Day Goddess – a lighthearted guide to nurturing your body, mind and soul. I know the impact of positive words and ideas on one’s life and I wanted to share with other’s what I’ve learned so I could contribute to their well-being through the use of my writing, speaking, TV work and wisdom.

I have many books that I love but I just chose a few for this video. They include Broken Open, by Elizabeth Lesser which I learned about on Oprah, You Can Heal Your Life by self-help pioneer Louise Hay who discovered that loving one’s self is the way to heal every area of your life, The Success Principles by Mega-successful Coach and Chicken Soup for the Soul co-creator Jack Canfield who offers the tried-and true steps that make living a successful life attainable, Being a goddess who love to cook – The Oprah Magazine Cookbook – Yum!, the inspiring stories and recipes from – The Hallelujah Table by Dr. Maya Angelou who I had the honor of meeting when this gracious icon came to speak in Santa Barbara. Then The Daily Word of Unity’s prayerful affirmations, Time for Joy Affirmations and one of my favorite authors from the early 1900’s who was part of the New Thought movement – Florence Scovel Shinn’s The Game of Life. She has powerful affirmations and stories that always inspire me. One of her affirmations that I say often is may “The divine plan of my life now manifest under grace in perfect ways!” She defined the divine plan of one’s life as perfect health, wealth, love, and self-expression. So I hope I’ve inspired you to read, learn or remember your favorite books. Feel free to let me know what books have inspired you and I thank all of you who continue to share how my book has inspired you. It makes my heart very happy to know my words have helped or inspired you. From one goddess to another, I Bless You! Cynthia
