  1. I am amazed at how our libraries coincide so much as I guess our interests do as well. Bonus points for Haeckel. I got "Be Here Now" when I was a young and have since lost my copy. Fun book. I find alchemical symbolism, old maps and charts of the heavens, fascinating. Lovely library reflects a lovely mind! Cheers!

  2. I was just thinking about you today, anticipating a new video of yours! Your book collection is an exciting source to dig for inspiration. It's amazing to see how you transform those inspirational elements into your art. I also love Haeckel, mystic symbolism and the fascinating world of creatures. So naturally I will spend some time with your recommendations. Thank you in advance. 🙂

  3. You have the most amazing bookshelf!!! Such wonderful book collection!! The only books I know are The little prince and Gustav Klimt, but your versions, the pop up Prince and the close up Klimt I have never seen before. Oh, I want to read and see all of these books, especially all the ones of botany and Heckel and and, yes all of them! Thank you so much for sharing! Such a beautiful video again from you. It made everything better. I was feeling a bit down, but now after watching this little glimpse of the beautiful world of yours, I feel uplifted, curious and happy again! Thank you!!! : ) Lol, your cute cat, wanted to give the big book a cuddle ^..^ : )

  4. I love love love your book collection 🙂 Somehow I envisaged you would have such a collection and that you would not only use books to learn from but as a means for inspiration to. Thanks to my daughter I have her amazing collection from paganism, the Kabbalah, Celtic history, herbalism, to mystical creatures and more. I have found that books are a beautiful never ending source of inspiration and look through second hand books shops and market stalls for new additions all the time now. Thankyou so much for reminding us to be more open to forms of inspiration at our finger tips that we can sometimes take for granted. Peaceful blessings x

  5. Carolina, I'd like to share a book with you.

    It is the core book of Falun Dafa entitled 'Zhuan Falun'. It talks about spiritual things from a scientific perspective. It talks about other dimensions, the soul, the cosmos in the microcosm and the macrocosm, supernatural abilities, karma, healing, the true history of mankind, transcending the 5 elements and leaving the 3 realms and many many other fascinating things.

    It is a spiritual science of the highest order. I'll give you a copy and you can take a look if you like, totally up to you ofcourse:

  6. You look so young,but so wise! Awesome collection! The beauty of nature is what inspires myself!

  7. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful book collection and for the quick insight into your favourite books 🙂 I have already very carefully play-paused through the bookshelves (your studio tour video), but this — this is even more inspiring! (PS. "Women who run with the wolves" has been on my reading list for some time but now it is an imperative for me to read it asap! PPS. I love your love of plants!)

  8. I am going to find a copy of Blue Mind right away. I’m interested in nearly all these books. Thank you for sharing your inspiring collection!

  9. Yesterday I discovered this channel, but now it is officially my new favorite. 🌿🧡 Thanks for being so inspiring.

  10. Omgosh tytytyty! I've always been huge into symbolism and you've given me many paths to explore. Thank you thank you thank you

  11. Hi Caro, Among Erich Fromm's books "The Art of Loving" and "The Art Of Being" would be a good addition to your library. I would add that Ken Wilber, who is regarded as the Einstein of consciousness, has a lot to say about what it means to be human and in ways you never thought possible.True, he is not without his critics but they agree that he still offers a theory of consciousness that is truly revolutionary. Your exceptional art work also reminds me of Ken Wilber's map on the stages of human development. http://integralpraxis.blogspot.com/2009/03/new-overview-of-aqal-integral-theory.html

    You can see Ken on the link below, sharing his thought provoking ideas on the means by which we can rise above our limited awareness.

  16. Why aren’t more young women interested an informative videos? I don’t understand… If Caro’s content was based on makeup she’d had hundreds of thousands of videos.
