Great Books for Prosperity and Money

Books are wonderful tools for changing beliefs, thoughts, and feelings about any number of subjects.

Prosperity consciousness is based upon certain beliefs - belief that we are a part of All That Is, belief that we deserve prosperity, abundance, love, and money, belief that we are able to have the prosperity and money that we want to live the life that we want.

These are some of my favorite books on living in abundance, on creating great personal wealth.

The Science of Getting Rich

"Whatever may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or or successful life unless one is rich. No one can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money, for to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them with." Wallace Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich, Chapter 1


"Money Freedom: Finding your Inner Source of Wealth" by Patricia Remele for the A. R. E. Press, 1995.

“Money Freedom is a product of my journey from feeling powerless – to my taking charge of my life. My reason for writing the book is to share the breakthroughs and tools that have enabled me to transform my life. I have seen these tools help others and my vision is that we may all enjoy happy, abundant lives.” Patricia Remele.
There is an absolutely wonderful meditation for connecting with Spirit in this book. A variation on the Heartmath meditation, it adds the affirmation: "I am my greater whole self, radiating infinite joy, love, and abundance."
You can find this book at the A.R.E. Bookstore. Access it through the main site at

"Creating Money: Keys to Abundance" by Sanaya Roman & Duane Packer, H. J. Kramer Inc., 1988.

This book is beautifully written and gives a lot of wonderful information in four sections: Creating Money, Developing Mastery, Creating Your Life’s Work, and Having Money.
I probably bought this book in 1988; it is beautiful and inspiring. The purpose of the book is to help us connect with Higher Self and with Spirit. That is good for all of us and for our world. I have several books by these authors, and I enjoyed them so much I bought many of their meditation and inner journey tapes.
Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer have created a wonderful web site at From the front page, check out the weekly meditation and book excerpt. I check this out every week, and use it almost every day. You can go to the Affirmations room to get an affirmation, or to the Highest Future room to get insight from any of their books.  You can buy the books and tapes on this site as well.

"Prospering Woman" by Ruth Ross, Ph.D.

"In order to achieve prosperity on a continuous basis, we must develop balance. Momentary desires will have to be balanced with long-term goals; savings, spending, and investing plans will have to be devised. Prosperity requires planning, clear intent, and commitment. Becoming friends with money and recognizing what it can and cannot do for us is an important preliminary step.

"Money in itself cannot make us happy, but with intention it can provide the means of unlimited good for ourselves and others." Ruth Ross (1929-1994)

"A Practical Guide to Prosperous Living" by J. Douglas Bottorff

"Until you decide to be true to yourself and to follow your dreams, you will never tap into the essence of prosperity."
The premise of the book from Unity Books is that we are given our heart's desires, dreams, and life purpose from Spirit and we are meant to live those dreams. We will never be truly satisfied or content - i.e., prosperous - until we make that connection and follow our inner guidance to the life of our dreams. Most of us in my generation were taught that we had to have a job, that we had to pursue a certain standard of living and certain material goals to be successful by our social definition of prosperity. But true prosperity is living our dreams - the dreams of our heart - and then comes the financial support.


Suze Orman: "The Courage to Be Rich"  and  "The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom"

Suze Orman is practically the "last word" in prosperity and money management. She has her own television show that appears almost nightly on cable. Her books are best sellers and she has appeared on all kinds of talk shows including Oprah. These two books are the ones I've read. "The Courage to Be Rich" is subtitled "Creating a Life of Material and Spiritual Abundance." "The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom," which is the earlier book, is subtitled "Practical & Spiritual Steps so you can stop worrying." I am a worrier and books like these sort of stem the tide of my fears and worries.
