Dr. Northrup’s all time favorite book on creating a prosperity consciousness, and the one that she turns to again and again, is Catherine Ponder’s The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity.

To have fears in the face of life’s challenges is only human, but how we acknowledge and move forward from a position of fear can be instrumental to health and happiness. Fear usually means you are in a new situation, or one that’s familiar but in which you or others have been threatened or hurt before. Holding on to fear may lead you to believe you will be rejected or to think of everything that could go wrong, and chronic fear can lead to a host of physical and emotional maladies. Susan Jeffers’s book Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway is full of techniques and tools that can help you name this emotion and figure out what it is asking of you, change your perceptions, and take the action necessary to achieve your goals and dreams, as well as inner peace.
