    Book Description

    The Hidden Messages in Water is an eye-opening theory showing how water is deeply connected to people's individual and collective consciousness. Drawing from his own research, scientific researcher, healer, and popular lecturer Dr. Masaru Emoto describes the ability of water to absorb, hold, and even retransmit human feelings and emotions. Using high-speed photography, he found that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward it. Music, visual images, words written on paper, and photographs also have an impact on the crystal structure. Emoto theorizes that since water has the ability to receive a wide range of frequencies, it can also reflect the universe in this manner. He found that water from clear springs and water exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns, while polluted water and water exposed to negative thoughts forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. Emoto believes that since people are 70 percent water, and the Earth is 70 percent water, we can heal our planet and ourselves by consciously expressing love and goodwill. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Intriguing Research on Healing, Consciousness, & Energy
    This is a repackaged version of the research and photos of Dr. Emoto that were originally in a set of books that included a Japanese version of the text. This research has been popularized by a number of holistic health practitioners and new science/new thought metaphysical advocates. Emoto's evidence is very impressive, although I don't think he fully understands how the water reacts to its environment in some instances, such as the response of water to specific words. Words are energetically connected to human concepts, so the word actually transmits the concept/idea/feeling that people associate it with rather than the word actually having an energy apart from the consciousness of those who have used the word. If everyone suddenly decided that "satan" "devil" and "Hitler" were positive forces then those words could become positive influences on water. Water is inherently a neutral compound - neutral pH, etc., which is perfect for transmitting energy and information without corrupting the information. Emoto has done wonderful work examining water all over the world and seeing how water reacts to a variety of environmental stimuli. Follow-up controlled research would be useful to examine how human beliefs, intentions, and consciusness may influence how water responds to various tangible or recordable stimuli. This book is valuable even just for the water crystal photos throughout the book, and should inspire more people with materialistic, mechanistic views to expand their awareness.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Pseudoscience at its best
    I first became aware of Dr. Emoto's claims through the subway scene in the movie "What the BLEEP do we know?" I applied several tools from Carl Sagan's Baloney Detection Kit to the claims. I searched the peer-reviewed scientific literature in the PubMed database at National Library of Medicine and, among the 12 million or so articles there, I found a single report by Dr. Emoto in what appeared to be a reputable journal. However, upon closer inspection, the article was described in this journal as a "Photoessay" and did not even come close to meeting the criteria for a true scientific study. If anyone can validate the results of Dr. Emoto's version of homeopathy, James Randi may have a million-dollar prize for you. If you want to be truly inspired by the awe and mystery and spirituality of nature, check out Ursula Goodenough's book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This research shows how intention can change matter.....
    This book will get you to think about how our intentions can change matter. I've heard of a woman that heals only with water in Mexico, now I understand how she can do it. Water crystals are beautiful with good intentions and malformed with negative intentions. Mr. Emoto has proved water's structure can be altered with thought, pictures and music. Imagine what that can do for us considering we and our environment are mostly made up of water. It's an easy read and I highly recommend this book. ... Read more

    For those of us who have always been fascinated by the unexplained—or inadequately explained—secrets and mysteries of this world, Sylvia Browne now brings her great insight.

    Using a combination of information from her spirit guide Francine as well as her own incredible psychic powers, Sylvia augments current scientific research to provide us with detailed explanations about seeming inexplicable concepts.

The truth behind sacred and controversial objects such as the Shroud of Turin and the Holy Grail are brought to light; and fascinating and mystifying topics such as crop circles, the Lost Continent of Atlantis, UFOs, Easter Island, and much more are examined and clarified.

    Sylvia tears away the obscure and timeworn explanations that hide the underlying truths about these fascinating subjects. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars True Folk Magic - At Last!
    Finally a book of spells that focuses on traditional and ethnic sources, rather than neo-wiccan candle magic.

    If you are interested in learning about real folk magic and working with spells and recipes that have been tried and tested by generations of witches, voodoo practicioners, cunning folk, magus', shamans and witch doctors this is the book for you. Most of the spells in this book are traditional, some have never appeared in print before.

    The theory section is not quite as impressive and far more neo-pagan in its outlook, that said I have seen far worse theory and the rest of the book certainly makes up for it. If you can ignore the authors frequent references to pop-fiction works you may enjoy her Spellcraft section thoroughly as well.

    Be warned though, this book is very multi-cultural in its approach. There are spells that work with pagan, vodoun, christian and hermetic spirits. If you prefer to work with only one cultural strain of magic you may find only a few of these spells will agree with you. For the culturally eclectic - this book is a gold mine.

    All in all I give it 4 1/2 stars. I would give the Spells section which is the majority of the book 5 but the introductiory theory failed to impress me. I am quite satisfied with Judika Illes collection and would recommend it heartily.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recomended Book of Spells. The Ultimate!!!
    Destined to be a classic. The Only Book on Spells You Will Ever Need.

    This Book is not a Book on "Wiccan Magick" , although Wiccans who are not fluff bunnies, and are more open mided to learning could use it, and benefit greatly from this Book. It is a book on Folk Magic, from Brujeria, Santeria, Espiritismo, From Latin America, To Egypt, and other ancient cultures, from around the world. Many of these Earth-Magico Cultures do not believe in the concept of "Karma" so many of these Spells would be shunned by Wiccans. With that said.. I Love this Book. I hope the Author does a similar book on Magical Ceremonies and Rites and Passages.

    There are little books of spells, cheap book of spells, and so so book of spells, well this is the Ultimate Huge Tome of Spells. An Encyclopedia of Magical Spells from around the world, this book defiantly belongs in every Witches bookshelf. Over 1000 pages of spells, baths, infusions, the spells range from everything from Santeria, Strega, Vodou, Spiritism, Brujeria, Shamanism, and traditional Witchcraft. Unlike other spell books, this will defiantly be of great usage to its owner. One of the best Book of Shadows ever printed. The Tome, because it is Huge has everything from Banishing, Cleansings, Baths, Protection Spells. Everything from Seances, to calling on Spirits of Nature, from White Magic, to Black Magic, and everything in between. Here is a preview of the table of context.
    Spell casting, - Ritual and Tools, - Animal Spells - Banishing Spells - Business Success Spells - Cleansing Spells, - Court case, Legal, Justice Spells - Death Spells (Yes there is much on Black Magic, for those weak of heart) Ghost, Necromancy, and Vampire Spells. - Divination Spells - Domination, Influence Spells - Dream, Astral, Nightmare Spells- The Evil Eye - Fertility Spells - Safety Spells - Gamblers Spells, and Charms - Happy Home Spells - Healing Spells - Hexes and Curses - Invisibility, and Transformation spells - Love and Seduction Spells - Luck Spells - Marriage and Divorcee Spells, - Money, Wealth, Prosperity and financial spells - Children Spells - Protection Spells - Psychic powers - Summoning Spirits - unblocking spells - weather spells, and trust me, so much more...
    A person would have to spend allot of money, on many books and still would not get half of what this book has to offer.
    I have to give much praise to Judika Illes; this book will defiantly be one I will use for many years. This is my first book by this author, and know I have to purchase her other works. But I can not recommend this TOME enough, it is defiantly a must have for all Witches, and brujos. For all that you get in this huge book, the price is excellent, and very affordable. The Spells are simple and traditional spells that were used by our ancestors and are still effective today. No where will you get a book like this. If I could give this book 10 stars, I would.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Author Not Nice
    This book is ok for information on past history, but many of the spells could never be used, let alone make sense. She has some mistakes in the book to. Like the word magic/magick, which she doesn't use correctly. Also I emailed her to ask why and tell her my opinion of this book, like/nolike, and she wrote back with a nasty comment. She says "I wrote a threatening letter, which is certainly not the Wiccan Way. That it breaks the Wiccan Rede, the Rule of Three. If you are not familiar with the Rule of Three, write me back and I will be happy to recommend some good easy basic Wiccan books to show you." Me threatening please, she wrote to me with a rude state of mind, doing the same thing she says I did, yet did not really do. I take that as being a not very nice, I love my fans not the money, person.The author should be proud of her work and stand by it no matter what. Taking the good and bad opinions without snaping back at someone for no reason. So I would have to say the book is really not worth the time and money. That is my opinion though. You have the freedom to make ur own. TU. BB.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and intelligent!
    This encyclopedia has really impressed me! It's a far cry from lots of other spellbooks that come off as unreliable or just plain hokey. Ms. Illes has definitely done her research correctly, which shows especially in the introductory parts about the "science" of magic, ritual items, the history of magic, and so on. If you're looking for a good general spellbook with samplings of varied traditions and methods of magic, this is probably the one for you. Enjoy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow.
    The amount of work Ms Illes put into her encyclopedia is amazing and a wonderful addition to anyone's library! I am very impressed and inspired and I can easily reccomend this book! ... Read more

    Book Description

    "Death is a funny thing. It brings out the best and worst in people. It casts light on the truth and makes life blindingly clear."

    Her visions have helped solve crimes; her instincts have helped find missing people; she can predict future events and sense your thoughts.

    These are some of the extraordinary gifts that define the remarkable Allison DuBois, the real-life medium, wife, and mother whose life is the inspiration for the hit NBC television series Medium.

    When she was six years old, Allison's deceased great-grandfather came to her with a message for her mother: "I am okay, I am still with you. Tell your mom there's no more pain." Allison shared his comforting words with her mother and thus began a lifetime of creating connections between loved ones and those they have lost. The purpose of her gifts became clearer when Allison worked as an intern in the homicide bureau of the district attorney's office and found that she visualized the crime as she handled the evidence. Allison now works as a profiler on criminal investigations.

    In this stunning book, Allison shares fascinating stories of her encounters with people who have passed and her adventures as a profiler for various law enforcement organizations. With wit and compassion, Allison shows us what it is like to live with these special gifts and talents and alsotells about her struggle to live a normal life as a devoted wife and mother. She shows how learning to accept her own gifts has helped her accept the unique gifts of others and how her compelling desire to relieve the pain of others has helped define her own life, a life committed to the search for ultimate truth.

    If you have ever questioned whether there is an afterlife, this book will help you see that there is a living energy beyond death. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Little substance and worse writing, don't waste your money
    This book presents the experiences of the author.While some of the experiences are insightful and interesting, overall little is gained from reading this book.Moreover, the author is a poor writer.The book is written practically as a stream of consciousness, with little attention to structure or grammar.Don't waste your money.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Audio book review
    I'm never sure why people who don't believe in psychic phenomenon read books about it and then trash those books simply because they are about psychic phenomenon.I'm NOT phychic and I can see THAT train coming.

    I am not trashing this book because of the nature of the content.I hope I am not really trashing it at all.Some of the content is very interesting, and some of it isn't.I don't find it particularly well organized; and there is a lot of focus on how to parent a child with these abilities.While I have a child who may have some psychic ability and found some of it helpful, it was a bit too much for me.

    As you can tell, many people really enjoyed reading the book, and I may have as well if I had read it.However I listened to it, read by Allison DuBois. Sometimes I find listening to books read by the author a more enriching experience.We are all aware that part of communication is "tone of voice." When an author reads his or her own book, the listener has the benefit of hearing the author's tone of voice. I can't imagine that I would have enjoyed reading "Father Joe" by Tony Hendra as much as I did listening to Tony Hendra tell the story. However, I did not really enjoy listening to Allison DuBois.I'm sure she is a lovely woman and she has a very compelling story. However when reading this book aloud, her voice is rather flat and expressionless. It became monotonous very quickly and ultimately I did not enjoy listening to the book at all.

    I recommend that if this topic interests you, or you are intrigued by Allison DuBois, as I am, don't allow comments about the content or style of writing to keep you from reading it.However, I do not recommend listening to it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Intro to Paranormal Experiences 101
    If there is a course named this, this would be a good book for course reading.I've always thought it interesting that the gift Allison has is spoken of as paraNORMAL, considering as a society as a whole we view it anything but normal.

    The book is about someone just like us yet different because she discovers she has an unusual ability to see.Although many "gifts" of children are celebrated (like the child who makes college at 11)...this gift of seeing is not. One of the most helpful parts of the book is the part about helping to parent a child with these gifts.

    Since there are so many phonies out there one begins to wonder if any of it is "real".I'm reminded of the times of potions and fortunes being told in dark rooms.Allison is not dark, you feel her light and truth and love in what she writes.

    One of the interesting components of this book to me was feeling faith in it.Most faiths denounce any kind of psychic event or experience as being from God, yet I myself have always questioned why God would stop sending prophets to warn us or help us.Allison confirms that there is right and wrong, good and evil.She knows you reap what you sow.You'll find yourself smiling at her human honesty.

    It is clear that Allison knows it's a gift given her by someone much greater than her and she knows to use it for good.

    The book is a very quick read, informative, funny and it is a biography that is engaging.I too hope that Allison will continue to write her thoughts and experiences and we can grow to understand and appreciate a world that we cannot see.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WELL DONE!!
    This is a great read for those who have grieved over the loss of a loved one or wondered about the continued existence of consciousness after death.I found some of her understanding of spiritual experiences here enlightening- for example that people who radiate very positive energy attract like a beacon- those spirits who are not loving and wish to do us harm.She offers sound practical advice that has clearly been earned though her challenging personal journey.Thank you Allison for sharing this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars More than what most think
    I personally went to the booksigning for this book, and met Allison (and Joe) in person. At the book signing she answered alot of questions and gave alot of info on how her book came to be. Another reviewer on here suggested the book was rushed because of the tv show airing. Not true. The book was written prior to the tv show even coming into existance. It just was not published until now.

    Those who find the book confusing I think are missing the beauty of the book. Sure, it may not be the polished work that you are used to seeing from authors. This is because I do not believe her book went through much editing. How could you possibly edit it? It is a 1st hand experience written in a warm and person way. Too much editing would have ruined this. So instead of being "polished" it is personable and real. Personally, when dealing with subject matters such as these, I would much rather get a 1st hand account that is not watered down by an editor who doesn't have a clue about the subject.

    For those of you about to buy this, let me give you a laydown of the basic formula of the book. In case you do not know, it is almost a collection of stories as there are several different ones in the book. #1 She tells her story #2 She summarizes her story and speaks of the lessons she has learned from the story #3 Then she gives suggestions as to how the story could apply to you and what to do with that knowledge or lesson.

    This book is real, and touching. Allison was a fantastic down to earth person when I met her. A must have for fans of the show, anyone interested in psychic phenomena, and anyone who has lost a loved one. ... Read more

    Want to learn how to speak the language of critters, large and small? Easy-to-read and understand, Ted Andrews's bestselling Animal Speak shows readers how to identify his or her animal totem and learn how to invoke its energy and use it for personal growth and inner discovery. Nature lovers will love this insightful compendium, chock-full of touching stories about animals, natural history, and animal folklore. Readers will also learn magical animal rites and how to read omens. Animal Speak includes a dictionary of bird, animal, reptile, and insect totems, which describe each creature's meaning. For example, if a person's totem is dragonfly, he or she was most likely excessively emotional and passionate in early years, learning with age to balance it with mental clarity and control. If a dragonfly suddenly shows up in your life, it means you may need to gain a new perspective or make a change. --P. Randall Cohan ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Books About Totems Available
    In the last few months, I have discovered my animal totems in meditations I do. I first came across this book in a local book store and would rush over there to look up an animal I saw and its meaning every time I saw a new totems. I finally broke down and bought the book and consider it money well spent. It's nice to have it to refer to when a new totem appears before me. But besides being a very comprehensive dictionary of totems, there's also the philosophy behind them and how man needs to work more with nature to truly understand its power in our lives.

    I've come to be aware of and am thankful for the totems in my life that are helping me through my life's journeys. I feel this book would be very helpful to those (who don't already have it) that are interested in learning more about how animals speak to us, both symbolically and in nature, as well as shamanism and Native American culture. One recent morning I dreamt about a racoon that rushed by me and then that night saw one running through my back yard. His expression seemed to indicate he had something to tell me. Without having read this book, I might have shrugged it off but it to me is a perfect example of what animals can teach us. The message? Most likely to be a little more guarded in my dealings with others.

    I liked too how the author compared the "country" with the city, pointing out that even in a city environment you can still find parts of nature around us. It truly is everywhere, whether we acknowledge it or not.

    5-0 out of 5 stars How animals can help you learn about yourself
    In this book, you will discover how much the "animal world" and the "human world" intersect. Much more than making us feel good about being surrounded by nature, animals have much to tell us about ourselves and our relationship to the earth and to other living things. Andrews has divided the book into 4 parts - 'Symbols in the Natural World' (including chapters on the roles of nature, spirit totems, predators and prey, omens in nature, and the meaning of landscapes); 'Winged Enchantment' (bird totems and bird medicine); 'Understanding Animal Medicine' (animal rites and totems); and 'The Exotic Language of Insects and Reptiles' (totems). Each animal or bird or insect or reptile included in this vast inventory is described thoroughly - it's behavioral patterns and natural habitat, its mythological characteristics, AND its symbolic importance to humans. I have used this book repeatedly to help me interpret dreams in which animals were central, and to investigate why a certain animal or insect, etc. showed up in my life on a particular day. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is open to non-traditional but very ancient beliefs about animals and their magical and mysterious powers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down
    If you are into animals and nature, or want to learn more about them on a spiritual level, this is the book for you. I couldn't put it down from the moment I began reading it. And it's not a small book by any means!
    You really begin to look for the animals around you more closely and attentively. Especially when going hiking or camping, you become aware and note down what animals you saw and under what circumstances, and then look it up later in the book. It is surprisingly accurate, and fun on top of it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great "how to" book on animal guides
    Loved this book. It covers so many animals, you'll be hard pressed not to find your familiar, guide, etc. described in these pages. The book gives you the quick reference in it's "keynote" which is in bold at the top of each animal description. For example, the bear says "Keynote: Awakening the power of the unconscious", and then proceeds to give a page or so description of each of the animals symbolism and power points as well as what the animal may be trying to tell you about yourself.

    There is of course a section on finding your familiar (animal guide) as well. I have performed this "ritual" slightly tweeked to my own style, and it worked incredibly well for me. My familiar at that time was a Blue Jay and believe me, when I say this is to find your familiar, there is no mistaking it when this mystery animal comes to call. That Blue Jay, on several occasions flew right down in front of me and chirped it's head off a mere five feet away - maybe that far - to get my attention. FYI, my use of the word "ritual" is for lack of a better word. This is not a complicated endevor. Andrews style is straight forward and easy to use "magick".

    I strongly recommend this book for anyone wanting to connect with animal guides or is curious about some animal who seems to be showing up in their lives in an unusual manner - maybe they are trying to tell you something!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Love this book
    This book is packed full of information. The only thing i dislike about it, is how it is written. I wished Ted Andrews handn't have written this book in such a boring manner. It makes my eyes heavy... ... Read more

    Journey of Souls is a controversial yet inspiring investigation of the big question we all face at one point or another: "What happens after we die?" To find the answer, Newton opens cases from his private practice in which he hypnotically regressed his clients to a point between lives--after death, but before birth. Not only does Newton grapple with reincarnation, the spirit world, and the nature of the human soul, he also tackles equally sticky questions such as "Is there a Heaven and Hell?" and "What are ghosts?" Readers with a penchant for skepticism will balk at the lack of physical evidence to back up the claims in Journey of Souls, but the book remains a reassuring voice, affirming that our existence is not limited to the boundaries of our mortal flesh.--Brian Patterson ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Life Changing Read
    Dr Michael Newton has produced a book which has been life changing for me and for many others to whom I have recommended this book.

    When beginning a search for spiritual information some years ago, I was led to this book, which was the first book to really make sense of life after life. The concept of reincarnation and the experiences of learning both during and between incarnations unfolds superbly through the narrative of sessions with Dr Newton's clients. For students of life's meaning, Dr Newton provides a clear understanding of our purpose and the wonders that we have experienced between lives and can look forward to experiencing again after death in this life. A great read, fabulous information and a book which makes genuine sense of why we are here

    4-0 out of 5 stars A book you should read!
    I recommend everyone who is interested in reincarnation and pastlive-regression this book. It is not only so well because of the information but also because of Michael Newtons scientifical, critical and serious method of interviewing regressed people. But questions will remain. For example: How much are the reports influenced by religious believes? What would Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists, Hindus etc. tell when being regressed? What is exactly meant with the "source" (sometimes the regressed people call it also "God")? What about reincarnation of animals, the suffering of pigs, vegeterism and so on? There are much more open questions I had when reading that book, but I don't remember them all right now because I read it one year ago. The meaning of life becomes clearer with this book but still isn't satisfying for a critical man. If anyone who remembers his past can tell me the meaning of life I would be very grateful!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Convincing
    Prior to reading this book I had read dozens of books that discussed theories and case studies regarding reincarnation, including those presenting the experiences of Ian Stevenson, Edgar Cayce, Bruce Goldberg, Brian Weiss, Nick Bunick, Carol Bowman and others. (I had been a skeptic for over 25 years since I read a small reincarnation book published by the Theosophical Society while in my late teens.) However, other than the book by Dr. Goldberg, none really gave much of a glimpse on the "in between life" of the spirit.

    This book did more to convince me than any other. The author's careful, consistent and scientific approach was the key for me. Reading this book was like reading the notes from a scientist's journal, for Dr. Newton admits he was a skeptical non-believer in the beginning as well. The author's follow-on book (Destiny of Souls) is also quite good in this respect, but it does not break much new ground.

    I did a regression with one of the author's students (several years after I read JOS for the first time) and was deeply moved by the experience. The regression helped confirm strong intuitions I was having regarding an individual I had known in my youth and helped explain dozens of baffling and often bizarre dreams I had been having about this individual over a nearly 20 year period. These were dreams that went back to many earlier periods in American history, the 1920s/30s and late 1800s, specifically, and confirmed a close family connection in those past lives (I have had other dreams since that suggest at least one additional shared lifetime in 1700s England).

    I would have never fully grasped or appreciated the origin of these dreams without the information presented in this book. But more than that, JOS allowed me to better trust my intuitions and convictions, especially the notion that all of us are here of our free will and, therefore, that every action we take (including coming to earth again) is a personal choice that inherently demands personal accountability for its outcome.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Place To Start, But There Are Deeper Books
    Journey of Souls is spiritual food for thought. After reading this book I found myself genuinely looking at myself, how I got here, and what reasons lie behind my life. This is definitely a book to be read with an open mind, and whether in the end you believe the premise or not, it will still provoke a more expansive view of your own spirituality. Much like another book I just finished reading called The Book of Thomas by Daniel Aber and Gabreael. However their book goes much deeper than Journey of Souls. In their book not only is reincarnation covered in detail, but so is the charting process (our souls path), soul mates (no fluffy crap like I exspected on soul mates, it actually made sense), spiritual DNA, and much more. If you liked Journey of Souls you will love The Book of Thomas by Daniel Aber and Gabreael.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Exploring the Spiritual World
    It took many years after leaving the monastery for me firmly to decide that the Catholic Church was just another corporation driven by power and money. I threw out the baby with the bath water.

    Many years later I read Dr. Raymond Moody's "Life After Life" which introduced me to a spiritual world I might be able to understand and rationalize rather than just believe. Dr. Moody interviewed over 100 people who were declared clinically (brain and heart) dead, and later revived. He tells their stories. Dr. Newton's "Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives" picked up where "Life After Life" left off, and takes a giant leap toward understanding the life of the immortal soul.

    I'd like to live my life looking toward that "last judgment" I learned about in school. Dr. Moody tells how a "being of light" asks a non-verbal question which none of his subjects is able to reproduce precisely in words. This early discovery of Dr. Moody was published in 1975. Dr. Newton's 1994 "Journey of Souls" explains the process more thoroughly. Dr. Newton hypnotizes people, and helps them explore their past lives and their spiritual existence between lives while under hypnosis. The non-verbal question is far more complex than "What have you learned?", "How have you loved and been loved?", or "Was it worth it?" -- the approximations interpreted by Moody's subjects.

    Dr. Newton, through summaries and transcripts of his hypnotherapy sessions, helps us learn about spirit guides, (guardian angels), our welcoming into the spiritual world after death (judgment), and the maturation of the souls (karma/nirvana/the beatific vision).

    I've looked for this kind of guidance for years in the monastery, in Europe, in Asia, in the Middle East, in scriptures, books, fellowships, churches, temples and synagogues. Life After Life and "The Journey of Souls" and has caused changes in the very foundations of my beliefs, and helps unite the concepts of Christianity, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, and other religions. For my own journey toward an understanding of the meaning of life and death, Dr. Newton has offered sign posts in poorly charted territory.

    If you are interested in spiritual life beyond the doctrines of the organized religions that are based on power and money, "The Journey of Souls" is a must read. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Trailer park Advaita for the unwashed!
    It has taken David Icke 15 years (since his epiphany in 1990) and umpteen books to reach the same conclusions that he could have jumped to in 15 minutes spent reading about Ramana Maharishi.

    Stripped of all the breathless scattershot verbiage, the message boils down to (as the title says) "Everything is an illusion". Individual human consciousness units are game pieces trapped in an artificial Matrix - a web of deception designed to milk fear and other negative emotions for use as energy for its own sustenance and expansion. Pretty much everything you could roll out as a topic for conversation is just another brick in that wall - space, time, nature, DNA, science, religion, technology, art, education, medicine, and of course the financial system and the endless wars - you name it.

    The shape-shifting reptilians for which David Icke was once radically famous are now pretty much demoted to minor bit-player operatives in the overall scheme (and even come in for a bit of sympathy).

    The book's message really is pure "Advaita" - the ancient Hindu doctrine that, well, "Everything is an illusion". The part about Infinite Love is so removed from regular human garden variety love (which all its pressures, pains, and fears) that you might as well tag Icke's concept as Advaitic "Self" (big S!) and be done with it.

    A book like this (in fact most of Icke's books) also really show the influence of the Web on authorship. Anybody can be an instant expert on anything, but that fact-finding power doesn't necessarily confer logic or organization skills.

    So given all this kvetching, why my5 Star rating?

    Simple! I mean the answer to that is simple, and the reason is that Icke presents the same message more SIMPLY and more humorously than the regular Neo-Advaitic authors. The presentation of core concept "Everything is an illusion" by the current crop of Neo-Advaitic authors (no, "Neo" isn't a reference to The Matrix here, it just means the Western 21st century appropriation of classical Advaita by such as John Wheeler, Nathan Gill, Jan Kersschot, and so on) are so bloodless, dull, and humorless that Icke's version cuts through them likea top-end Harley Davidson hog through a kid's tricycle race. Admittedly though Icke gilds the lily a LOT more than those purist Neo-Advait's mentioned, with his digressions about natural health maintenance, sexuality, 9-11 conspiracy, Jewish religious law (he should've gone easier on that particular one, why continue to feed the spurious charges of anti-Semitism?), and on and on.

    Icke delivers the goods with a lot more sauce and fun than anybody else. However, as usual it is more diagnosis than practical working prescription (maybe it has to be this way, as in Icke's world, one sign you are dealing with The Matrix is the prevalance of RULES governing everything). That does leave us with a bit of a quandry - how to actually eject ourselves from The Matrix? Hmmm, maybe those Neo-Advaita authors are looking a bit better ...

    One area where Icke is a bit naiive is that he seems to accept some kind of unit of "consciousness" as the subject for all the deception. "Your consciousness is trapped" type of thing. What is that - "consciousness"? Is there some base unit of inviduation there that we need to deal with? I remember somebody once asked Ramana - "How should we treat others?" His answer - "There are no others."

    But I think Icke differs in one small way from the Neo-Advaits in that they seem to say that there is no escape apart from acceptance. 'Lie back and enjoy it' type of thing. Whereas Icke seems to feel you could really jump ship entirely, into a pool of pure infinite Love.

    Anyway, I want to know HOW to escape! For now, this book will at least get you out of your cell and into the prison yard.

    Thich Nhat Hanh's writing is deceptive in its subtlety. He'll go on and on with stories about tree-hugging or metaphors involving raw potatoes; he'll tell you how to eat mindfully, even how to breathe and walk; he'll suggest looking closely at a flower and to see the sun as your heart.As the Zen teacher Richard Baker commented, however, Nhat Hanh is "a cross between a cloud, a snail, and piece of heavy machinery." Sooner or later, it begins to sink in that Nhat Hanh is conveying a depth of psychology and a world outlook that require nothing less than a complete paradigm shift. Through his cute stories and compassionate admonitions, he gradually builds up to his philosophy of interbeing, the notion that none of us is separately, but rather that we inter-are. The ramifications are explosive. How can we mindlessly and selfishly pursue our individual ends, when we are inextricably bound up with everyone and everything else? We see an enemy not as focus of anger but as a human with a complex history, who could be us if we had the same history. Suffice it to say, that after reading Peace Is Every Step, you'll never look at a plastic bag the same way again, and you may even develop a penchant for hugging trees.--Brian Bruya ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars a moment of peace is waiting for you...
    How can you make a difference in this world? Reading PEACE IS EVERY STEP is definitely a step in the right direction. Thich Nhat Hanh illustrates in his beautifully simplistic way that peace is something that begins with the individual.

    One need not read the book from start to finish. Each chapter is a morsel of wisdom in and of itself. I use it as a daily meditation first thing in the morning. A gentle reminder as I start the day.

    This book radically changed the way that I look at the world. I have bought copies for so many of my friends and they have done the same after reading it. By passing this message of Peace along, we are in essence forming a Peace Movement. Please do yourself and your community a favor and read and savor this little volume of wisdom.

    A moment of peace is waiting for you...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Powerfully simple
    This is a book to savor slowly. I will sometimes just read a paragraph or two and set it down to let the words really be absorbed. While that is my approach, this is a thin book that can be read very quickly if one wishes.

    The prospective purchaser (or gift-giver) need not worry about this being "too Buddhist" or religious. Of course it encompasses Buddhism's most profound meanings, but the writing approach of Thich Nhat Hahn is warmly inviting as he simply speaks of more peaceful ways each of us can make our way in this world. His words, with little reference to Buddhist tenets, come across as common sense that we often need to rediscover.

    It is very much about the *personal* journey to peace, with gentle stories that remind and reveal the goodness within each of us, that goodness then expanding in ripples that touch those in our lives. The writing is open and sincere and stated with a direct kindness. It is truly wonderful how he makes such profound ideas and options so simple and broadly understandable.

    This is a book I love to give as a gift. I believe you will find his words to be worth your time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Practice This Book's Contents
    Following Nhat Hanh's book "Being Peace", this is my next favorite by this articulate Zen master. Within you will find commentaries and meditations straight from the heart of Thay, as well as stories of his life as an activist for peace. It is so very applicable to our daily lives. Lately it's become all too clear that this world needs a healthy serving of peace. Our spiritual mouths are so hungry for this. The meditations Thich Nhat Hanh has been celebrated worldwide for are captured within this deceptively slim book. For those of you who have come to know Thay through his wide body of books, you know how well he communicates points to all of us; always with a soothing ease and simplicity. That style is more than ever evident in this text. This work is a remarkable starting point for someone interested in looking into Buddhism, searching for balance in their lives; it's for non Buddhists who are simply looking for a way to bridge the gap of divisiveness. Thich Nhat Hanh is such a good friend to us all, and buying this magnificent book can help all of us become better friends to the world at large. Enjoy it.

    This book will show you the way to accept others and yourself in the best ways of compassion. I especially like the parts about how flowers grow in garbage. Yeah, that sounds funny but when you look deeply at what it means it basically says that even though people have their bad points they all have something in common: a wanting to end suffering....and if they are suffering (the garbage) try to find the flower amongst it.

    Very insightful and a must read for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Spoiled by Success?
    The BOOK of HIRAM is a sequel to the bestselling THE HIRAM KEY by Knight and Lomas. I point out that fact right away because in the interim the dynamic duo of authors have published several other titles such as THE SECOND MESSIAH, URIEL'S MACHINE, etc. Some of their works were more directly follow-up to THE HIRAM KEY than others, but fact is the whole reason for preambling my review with a pseudo-bibliography is to state I anxiously awaited a sequel to the HIRAM KEY. I loved that book, learning about freemasonry, ties to early Christianity and other fascinating topics. I eagerly bought THE BOOK OF HIRAM. These were after all authors I had in the past year and a half become very familiar with their writing style and research results, i.e. musings and theories put forth in their tomes as they tangentially thought about one mystery or another.
    Therefore it saddens me to baldly state I did not enjoy this title nearly as much as I thought I would.
    The authors continue with their religious/ritualistics questions and theories. Searching for further ancient ties to freemasonry in forgotten realms of antiquity. However by this time much of their writing is almost repetitive. In fact I counted too many footnotes that were self-referential. Apparantly most of the source material for this book was earlier titles written by the authors:O. Which led me to wonder if maybe their earlier success in the sales department spoiled them. Instead of searching for answers were they just milking previous success? Were their numerous footnotes subtle ads hinting at readers' to pick up any previously un-read titles put out by them? It was a little distracting and disappointing to have these thoughts as I tried to read what was as well written a book technically as any other Lomas/Knight book, even if their revelations and chapters were not nearly as interesting as in previous titles.

    I finished this book not regreting reading it, only hoping it isn't quite a bestseller to spawn further sequels that further deteriotes the pleasure I had in reading THE HIRAM KEY.

    1-0 out of 5 stars I was embarrassed reading this.
    I think you could probably make the correct assumption 99% of the time that if you hear someone make the claim that Freemasonry is somehow tied to the Knights Templar, that claim is being made by a Freemason.

    Maybe's, possibly's, it is likely, not inconceivable, not beyond the realm of thought..... Everything is true when you can condition it. It's a pity no one who writes books on freemasonry/templars bothers to either read, or at least reference in any detail, Malcom Barber or Stephen Runciman, the most learned templar/crusad scholars of the 19th and 20th century. In fact, Mr. Barber, whose knowledge of the Templars far suprasses Knight, Lomas, Pickett, et al, has acknowledged that there is a nice little cottage industry of Templarism--which is a product of the innuendo, speculation and supposition.

    Does anybody who writes about this Templar/Freemason connection bother to point out that just about 99 % of the Templars couldn't read or write? That Jaque de Molay, the last grand master, couldn't read or write and required assistance with any document that was presented to him during his inquisition and trial? What do you think these illiterate folks found and then tried to keep secret for all these years? I'm sure the sheep who follow this stuff will probably find this review not helpful, but do yourself a favor, open your eyes and put out the consiparcy garbage and read Malcom Barber's The Trial of the Templars; The New Knighthood : A History of the Order of the Temple and Stephen Runciman's History of the Crusades (It is pricy and 3 volumes, but it is acknowledged as the finest piece of work detailing the crusades). If you want to at least be honest with yourself and not cast your lot with revisionist history, read Barber

    5-0 out of 5 stars A fascinating and illuminating read.
    In the last ten years many books have come onto the market that explore and expose Freemasonry, the Knights Templar and the ancient connections that these groups have had in our distant past back to the time of the Egyptians. The Book of Hiram is the fourth in a series explored by Chrsitopher Knight & Robert Lomas.

    In this title, Knight & Lomas take us even further back, to the Stone Age where sites such as Stonehenge and Newgrange in Ireland were astronomically aligned to the movements of the stars and the rising and falling of Venus as the Morning and Evening Star in particular.

    As always, I was rivetted by the work and detailed research presented by both these authors. Both are themselves Freemasons and both have an intense desire not only to fully understand the seemingly strange rituals held in Freemasonry but also to trace the origins of these rituals and reasons for the secrecy which surrounds them.

    Today, many in the twenty-first century take the liberties of Democracy, equality, a justice of liberty and religious tolerance for granted. The world was not always so, and in order to achieve these goals, many thousands of years and many lives had to be sacrificed, often under the cloak of secrecy in order to wrest away power from those who advocated autocratic states and a trail by ordeal. The French Inquisition, the American War of Independence, the French Revolution and the Second World War are cases in point.

    Whether you regard the Freemasons as a demonic order or not, after studying their history, their basic precepts as laid out at the end of this book and the goals that they set out to achieve over many centuries, one has to admire their tenacity and determination and perhaps....... even take some time to thank them for once instead of denouncing them?

    Much like all orders and groups, there are those who would use their connections for humanitarian aims and those who would use them for selfish acquisitive purposes. The recent exposure of homosexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church is a case in point. Not all Roman Catholic priests are sexual child abuses, not all Roman Catholics are bad people. Mother Theresa was a nun under the order of a Roman Catholic church and her life was a testament to human kindness and caring.

    So to I believe it is with much of Freemasonry, which in some instances has been connected to the Illuminati, much denounced in recent times for their apparent attempts at world domination and global control. These were not the aims of the Knights Templar or those of Freemasonry in general, though I am sure that some used and are possibly still using these orders to achieve such aims. I believe that Knight & Lomas have only the highest ideals in mind and their willingness to share their truth and the riddles that they have solved against all odds and much criticism, is admirable to say the least.

    Should you wish to explore Freemasonry, then these authors are the best place to start, not only in The Book of Hiram but in all their works.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Starting Point
    I have to admit that, when I started my exploration of the Wiccan Way, this book wasn't the first on my list. I went through several other beginner's guides before finally ending up with Cunningham's work, and I definitely wish I'd come across it sooner.

    Scott Cunningham makes an excellent portrayal of the core philosophy of Wicca, although accentuated with his own shamanistic bent. Cunningham's clear, crisp writing style makes reading his book seem like there's a teacher in the room with you. Truly, if you have any questions about the religion and practice of Wicca, it won't take you long to find your answers in "Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner."

    Possibly the greatest aspect of Cunningham's book, however, is that over half of it teaches through demonstration. After detailing Wiccan theories and common practices, Cunningham delves right into his own Book of Shadows, giving you a real-life example of the spirituality. This, if nothing else, makes the book a unique and essential part of any neopagan bookshelf.

    For those of you with no real knowledge of Wicca, I would suggest another book, such as Amber K's "True Magick" or Silver Ravenwolf's "To Ride a Silver Broomstick." However, if you've just started on the Wiccan Way, I highly recommend this book to round out your beginner's training and start you towards greater wisdom.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Introduction
    A friend recommended this book to me as an excellent introduction to this religion, and she was right. The author's gentle, relaxed and even at times jovial approach to explaining Wiccan concepts made it easy to read and to learn more about this ancient religion. I found myself nodding silently at some of the things he said. He also takes great pains to explain that what he says in this book is not the "be all" of wicca, just that as the book calls itself, a guide for those folk who practice wicca in a solitary manner. You are free to design your own rituals and practice them in whatever way feels most comfortable to you.

    The book is divided into three major sections: theory, practice and the standing book of shadows, all well done. Wicca at times from the way the author describes it can be a joyful experience. Interesting how a lot of the so-called "Christian holidays" actually evolved from Pagan ones. Various Sabbats and of course the celebrating of the various equinoxes are traditional Wiccan holidays, and most correspond to modern day holidays, Imbolc for example falling on the same day as Groundhog Day.

    My friend refers to this book as her "Wiccan bible." While some may call this comparison sacrilegious or heresy, I say the only way to judge for yourself is to read this book for yourself.

    5-0 out of 5 stars excelent for begginers
    I agree that this book is slightly watered down and PC but I also think it is an excellent begginer book. It avoides all the fluffy bunny pitfalls and actually says that this is ONE way of following Wicca but not the only way. It was the best book that I read as a begginer and I would recommend it as the first book to read for anyone. It provides a great basis for other information. It does lean toward the Traditional way but I don't view that as bad because it is good to have a traditional basis before trying out more non-Traditional ways of doing things.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Classic on Les Mysteries
    Cunningham's work is an absolute classic in its field, similar to 'Memetic Magic' by Kirk Packwood. I am very glad I bought this one, it has taught me so much about witchcraft.
    I am a solo practioner of the arts, and this book seemed to be tailor written to my needs. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Eh...
    It's pretty basic. I would only recommend this book to those who have no idea what witch craft is. Better yet, the information in this book you can easily find on websites throughout the internet. Still, a good book. Not great. Good. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars It's a toss up, which theory is worse?
    I am a liberal Christian who believes in bible prophesy. I read Behold a Pale Horse at the urging of someone I met at a recent peace rally. While I can definitely see the parallels the book has to the book of Revelations, I truly and deeply don't want to believe this. The information is mind numbingly frightening, particularly if you were of the notion that our government while quite imperfect is a well-meaning work in process. The more appropriate description according to the theories presented here would be life and death menacing, in a fascist vein.

    When I search various web sites for conspiracy/secret societies/ and similar topics I often find references to obvious hate mongers and how they've been victimized (David Duke, Tom Metzger, etc...). As a black woman, while I see the biblical parallels, I refuse to accept anything as truth when it spawns from someone who thinks there is any validity in the ideals proposed by such hate filled men.

    While indeed Pale Horse is an interesting read (as is Rule by Secrecy and any David Icke books), and I believe holds an ounce of truth, I can't accept it as absolute. Don't become obsessed with the notion, which is almost impossible after reading any of these books. I did and still feel compelled to search. I just find it ironic that these same people who cry conspiracy would not embrace me purely for ethnic reasons. Is that not akin to the elites who believe their position and DNA places them in a superior class, for which everyone else must suffer.

    Why should I or any persons of color believe their theories/revelations are meant for benevolent purposes and the elites are in essence the big bad monster? Could the elites be any worse than them? Either side of the issue is bleak.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A Good Book to Read
    After reading this book, I almost feel certain that this man ( William Bill Cooper )really did stumbled on some very important documents from the military. The proof is right in front of my eyes as I read his service record pages from the Navy on how he was absent from CINPACFLT base after learning the real truth about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. But my overall interest is chapter 12, about the secret government ( FEMA )and the real purpose of MJ-12. To tell you the truth, when that television series " Dark Skies " made its debut in 1996, some of the material and information from that show was basically explained in Cooper's book. As they say the truth is out there. I hope you understand where I'm coming from. I'm still looking for more books on UFO's and the possibility of exterrestrail encounters. I must keep in mind that I cannot allow these publishers or editors take me on a joy ride of disinformation. However, "Behold a Pale Horse" is very interesting and enlightning for those who believe that a conspiracy really exist in our country. Thank you for reading my review.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Rest in Peace William
    In honor of the late William Cooper, I'm compelled to add one of the best selling conspiracy books of all times on my top ten list (Lone Nutter News). I don't agree with all of what the author says, or the fear based perspective he takes-but William had a certain feistiness that I actually admire in retrospect. I never took him calling me a 'pimp in a time warp' personally. I was just left wishing more authors would be as direct and confrontational as he, with whatever conspiracy they are dealing with-in their personal lives and on a broader scale as well. We'll never know what really happened on that fateful day when the Arizona police gunned Bill down or what kind of honey trap they laid out for him. Reading his book may at least set something in motion so the truth will inevitably be revealed about his demise. Rest in Peace William and may you be reborn in a more benign world free of MJ-12 and Kennedy Assassinations as a result of your earth plane efforts.

    1-0 out of 5 stars This book is total, rambling, nonsense.
    Why is this book getting so many 5 star ratings? It clearly doesn't deserve them. Are you people friends, family members, part of a cult or just plain nuts?

    This book has not received these reviews based on merit. There is something else going on here.

    I could put together a more coherent book by opening up my bottom desk drawer getting out a pile of loose papers, throwing them out of my second story window, raking them into a pile and then going to print just like that!

    If you want to spend your money on this.... Go ahead. But you will wish you had listened to me.

    This book is a good starting point for anyone who seeks to look deeper into the greater "scheme" of our government. Don't go through life blind to the harsh reality of secret societies that control government operations and conceil the truth. Milton William Cooper's death resulted mainly from the publishing of this book. He knew too much and therefore had to be silenced. His life was the price for this publication. If that doesn't convince you that it's worth knowing, I don't know what will. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars The Book of Shadows: The Unofficial Charmed Companian
    Like many other reviewers here when I first opened this book I expected to find reviews on each episode and stuff like that. Instead I found spells and other magic things. Reading this inspired me to become a Wiccan, however when I researched on the web I found that most of the information in this book doesn't actually follow any Wiccan laws. It also doesn't touch at all on the religion that is involved whenever you become a Pagan.

    1-0 out of 5 stars A Gimmicky book with SOME good info.
    I thumbed through this book at a bookstore. While it does have SOME relevant information on the religion of Witchcraft, overall I found it to be ridiculous. Charmed is a television show; it does not represent the REALITY of the life of a practicing witch. Anyone who seeks this book out as a guide to "true" Wicca of witchcraft is kidding themselves. There are no hard and fast rules in these religions. Also, the reader needs to keep in mind that these religous paths are very serious, and the practice therein is not to be taken lightly. You cannot be a witch just by reading a book. Especially one about a fantasy television show. However, the author does attempt to explain the differences between Wicca, traditional witchcraft, and the show. But I'm afraid that many readers will assume that this book holds much spiritual truth and will use it as a guidebook to an entire religious movement that they do not understand.

    3-0 out of 5 stars The Book of Shadows : The Unofficial Charmed Companion
    I expected more information pertaining to the TV series, Charmed. This book is interesting, yet not entirely consistent with the TV series, as I had hoped. I find the show entertaining - as it claims on the commercials, takes you away for an hour. Although I believe to some degree that witchcraft is a viable practice, I was interested in the entertainment value of a book that strictly adhered to the series use of it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Big Disappointment
    I purchased this book thinking that it was at least a decent guide to Charmed. True, there are no other Charmed guides, but this one isn't even updated; there are about 5 seasons missing. In the first section of the book, the author attempts to explain Wicca. It's o.k. if one has no prior knowledge of the religion. My main complaint is the childish manner in which it was written. I expected more depth and intelligence. It was poorly written. Hopefully someone else will write a better guide to Charmed. Don't waste your money on this one.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Pretty dissapointed!!!
    Well, I thought overall this book was okay but it was definitly not what I expected it to be. I expected this book to have a lot of information on charmed, behind the scenes stuff, and to have all the spells that they said in each of the episodes. There was some behind the scene type stuff and like 5 spells. It was more for a beginner in witchcraft explaining what certain ingredients are for and where and when to do witchcraft which I didn't expect so much of. I also didn't expect it to be so old, it only features 2 seasons of the charmed show. Now there are 7 seasons, I thought it would have been more updated, it doesn't even have Paige in it! All in all I was pretty dissapointed in it and I wouldn't recommend this book to charmed lovers, maybe to beginners of witchcraft. But that's just what I think, hope you found this review helpful! ... Read more

    Book Description

    Science has recently begun to prove what ancient myth and religion have always espoused: There may be such a thing as a life force.

    Lynne McTaggart, indefatigable investigative journalist, reveals a radical new biological paradigm -- that on our most fundamental level, the human mind and body are not distinct and separate from their environment but a packet of pulsating power constantly interacting with this vast energy sea.

    The Field is a highly readable scientific detective story that offers a stunning picture of an interconnected universe and a new scientific theory that makes sense of supernatural phenomena. Original, well researched, and well documented by distinguished sources, The Field is a book of hope and inspiration for today's world.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Scientists Explore the Last Frontier - the Zero Point Field
    With an ear for human interest and eye for detail, Lynne McTaggart masterfully tells the true story in THE FIELD of how pioneers in science and consciousness research are working to achieve a more complete understanding of the true nature of reality -- an understanding which includes (rather than ignores) consciousness.

    THE FIELD describes how scientists have gradually become aware of what appears to be a unifying energy structure in our universe. This "Zero Point Field" provides us with a simpler explanation for how things work than previous overly-complex ideas require. Simplicity in science is a good thing, because it generally indicates which theories will win out as time goes by. The Zero Point Field theory demonstrates it's elegant simplicity by allowing physicists to derive the famous equation F=ma (rather than take it as a starting assumption), and by helping medical practitioners understand the underlying scientific basis for homeopathy.

    Our scientific conceptualization of this universe has changed considerably over the last few centuries and now faces one of the biggest overhauls ever -- and THE FIELD demonstrates why the Zero Point Field is likely to be the last frontier for us to explore. THE FIELD is packed with detailed descriptions of some of the most exciting experiments recently conducted by leading researchers in the field of consciousness such as: Cleve Backster, Jacques Benveniste, William Braud, Bob Jahn, Edgar Mitchell, Fritz-Albert Popp, Hal Puthoff, Rupert Sheldrake, Russell Targ, Elisabeth Targ, and Charles Tart.

    I give this book my highest recommendation.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Lucid Exploration Of The Quantum-Holistic View Of Reality
    In The Field, the author takes the reader along on a quest to understand the metaphysics that underlie our perceived universe. This book mainly reviews the data and theories of scientists exploring new paradigms in physics, consciousness, and subtle energy fields. While the evidence in these areas is open to theoretical interpretation, the findings consistently disprove dominant materialistic and mechanistic notions about life and the universe. The Field makes it evident that a deep analysis of scientific paradigms will lead those seeking a greater truth into the realm of metaphysics and consciousness, which have traditionally been the terrain of mystics, philosophers and spiritual seekers. This book provides an excellent overview of the most important developments in the sciences that examine the most vital issues of existence. This book is also great for challenging materialists and even some religious fanatics, as it documents contradictions to widely held beliefs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stunning Information
    A fantastic piece of scientific reporting, knowledgeable enough to explain complex physics processes so that the lay person can understand. Adding to this other reading I've done, it makes it clear that science and philosophy are moving closer to each other. Those of us with minds open enough to at least speculate and imagine, are seeing and hearing scientific support for things we've known intuitively for a long time. What an exciting book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic bridge spanning science and the "paranormal"
    I have background in engineering and also work as a lecturer for the Silva UltraMind System. I recommend this book to everyone who attends my class. Its a great read and hard to put down. The only drawback may be the authors constant reference to Physics(frequency, zero-point field, resonance, Fourier Series) that may put off readers without a basic science background.

    Embraced by the Light is an inspirational map of the afterlife framed in the moment of Eadie's death, and presents a possible answer to the big question, "Why are we here?" An easy read, its subtitle could have been "The Average Person's Guide to Near-Death Experiences." Although heavily filtered through Eadie's Christian worldview, her vision of the afterlife does not include a wrathful deity, but a figure of love and compassion. Some readers may find Eadie's repeated Christian references bothersome, and Embraced by the Light will undoubtedly raise a lot of questions along the lines of "What about reincarnation?" and "What happens to people who are not Christians?" --Brian Patterson ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read!
    Embraced By The Light is absolutely wonderful! It
    is a must read for anyone, who doubts the existence
    of another world beyond the one we live in.
    It is insightful and emotional, and speaks freely
    and frankly about life on the otherside. If you
    don't believe me...just read the book.
    I have encouraged many of my families and friends
    to read this book. Mrs.Eadie does a remarkable job,
    and should be given credit for being honest and brave
    enough to come forward with such a personal experience.
    Knowing that people would more than likely
    criticize such an event, she believed enough in
    herself to write about her accounts.
    If you do anything for this
    book, you won't regret it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
    This is a wonderfully detailed account of Betty's life after death experience. Everybody should read this book!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Cashing in on Grief?
    Many people who read this book have it handed to them after the death of a loved one. For me it was the passing of my wife's father. She read it and found it a great comfort so she asked me to read it too. I was skeptical but for her sake, I read it. I am a slow reader but this thing is so full of fluff that I got through it in two hours. Religion is a great comfort to people in times of personal grief and I realize that this book has helped many to cope with death. But religion is also, along with politics, one of the few career fields where you can turn bull---- into money. It is plainly obvious that this whole thing was made up.

    She never says why she was in the hospital. What caused the near death experience? Explaining this might have given the story a little more credibility, but for the author, none of this was relevant. The only reason for writing the book was to tell the miraculous story. Most NDEs last only a few minutes. This one was long enough for a feature-length film, and she has total recall of every little detail. How could she have survived such a lengthy NDE? She crammed a lot of material into the four or five minutes that a person can survive such an ordeal.

    Pardon me for being so skeptical of a book that clearly has helped so many people in their darkest hour. Maybe the author was sincerely trying to use her story-telling skills to help people cope with death. But on the other hand, if there is a heaven, and if she did write this to cash in on the grief of others, she'll need a lot more than a good line of bull---- when she meets her maker for real.

    2-0 out of 5 stars A Decidedly Mixed Review
    My father asked me to read this book right after my mother passed away. This book brought her great hope, and she passed it along to many people. To be directly honest with the reader, I write this review as a Catholic convert son of a Seventh Day Adventist mother. To be frank, I have a very mixed review of this book.

    Before I launch into its content, it should be stated that this book is written in a very readable and fluid style. It took me no more than two hours to read. That being said, I now begin with my thoughts about Ms. Eadie. If the book is true to herself, I find Ms. Eadie to be a very loving and kind person. I need not doubt that there are such things as near death experiences, and, for that matter, I do not doubt that Ms. Eadie experienced something wonderful.

    Her depiction of Christ as a loving redeemer is right on. Christ is all these things and more than we can imagine. That being said, however, there are matters in this book that directly contradict that which we know from the public revelation of God to his people. The first test of private revelation, such as experienced by Ms. Eadie, is whether that private revelation seeks to add to or contradict the revelation Our Lord has given us. Unfortunately, much of this book does just that.

    The preface provides that "Betty does not return from clinical death with grandiose claims of establishing a new church or of producing miracle cures for diseases, but rather with a simple message of love." I believe this to be true, she does not establish a new church, but Ms. Eadie does style her own religion based upon her experience.

    More specifically, on page 45 it Ms. Eadie states, "I wanted to know why there were so many churches in the world. Why didn't God give us only one church, one pure religion? ... All religions upon the earth are necessary because there are people who need what they teach." Ms. Eadie's question is a common one, and it is highly relevant. Nonetheless, God has provided the answer. In Matthew 16, Our Lord states "You are Peter and on this rock I will build my Church." St. Paul later would state that the Church is the pillar and foundation of truth. Christ said he has a Church and it is His. That Church is the pillar of truth. Furthermore, this is very consistent with the revelation to the Jews. God's people, with all their faults, were given the truth of God. The religions of the people that they would displace were not on equal par. Through Christ, God wants us to know the truth. In short, it is not God's desire that there be multiple religions. It is his desire to let all people know Him. He accomplishes this through his Church. I'll illustrate with a rather extreme example. The Aztec people appeased their gods by sacrificing prisoners of war and children. Ms. Eadie's statement, if taken to its logical conclusion would mean that the Aztec people needed this religion and that it was good. Not true.

    If we draw out Ms. Eadie's analogy, there would be no need for anyone to become a Christian. Why? He is fine just where he is at. Christ said he is the truth and the life. We need to spread that message. Ms. Eadie does this in an indirect way, but this doctrine of hers cuts against this truth.

    Ms. Eadie also provides that we pre-existed the creation of the world and participated in its creation (page 47). She provides that we elect to accept our way of life, trials, and illnesses before we are born on earth (page 67). She explains that Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden because "she wanted to become a mother desperately that she was willing to risk death to obtain it" (page 109) I find no support for these statements in the Bible or the Apostolic tradition. If, as Ms. Eadie suggests, even our sins are intended for the benefit of ourselves or others, there is no condemnation for sin. If a person has chosen before his existence to be aborted as a fetus, the mother who aborts that child has no condemnation because she is merely fulfilling the will of the fetus and the tacit approval of God. This is a very dangerous doctrine in that there is no sin. To that end, Ms. Eadie also denies the existence of hell. On page 84 she suggests that our those who "die as atheists, or those who have bonded to the world through greed, bodily appetites, or other earthly commitments find it difficult to move on ... these spirits stay on the earth until they learn to accept the greater power around them and to let go of the world." Thus, there is no hell. There is only heaven, although some are delayed. In the final, analysis all go.

    This book was an interesting read. Ms. Eadie isn't establishing a new church, but she is establishing a new religion that denies so many things revealed to us by Christ. To that end, I recommend this book only to those that can recognize the difference between these two matters. Those who can't see the implications of Ms. Eadie's revelation are subject to being deceived. It is very true that Christ is love. It is also truth that Christ taught us what to believe in his love. We should not accept one over the other. Christ desires both for us.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love the Love inside this book
    This book reminds me of Tiffany Snow's book - the love expressed here, and how we don't have to have a NDE to wake up the real reason for living -LOVE- is wonderfully simple. The joy and changes made in her life have helped us all have a glimpse of the bigger picture, and not sweat the small stuff. ... Read more

    Book Description

    The Five Tibetans are a yogic system of highly energizing postures and exercises that originated in the Himalayas. Liberating and enhancing the innate energetic power of the human body and mind, these five exercises take a minimum of daily time and effort but offer remarkable results in the way of increased physical strength and suppleness as well as mental acuity. In addition, these exercises can be a vehicle for enlivening the senses and generating and harnessing energy for the purpose of self- transformation.

    Regular practice of these postures relieves muscular tension and nervous stress, improves respiration and digestion, benefits the cardiovascular system, leads to deep relaxation and well-being, and tunes and energizes the chakras.

    The Five Tibetans are explained within the context of traditional yoga, providing a foundation for understanding.

    Black-and-white photographs and illustrations complement the text and clearly indicate the proper execution of each exercise. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners
    I'm a huge fan of the Five Tibetans, and this is a great little book for people who are already fit and experienced in yoga-type exercises. For anyone else, however, I strongly recommend Peter Kelder's "Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth", Book 1 or 2, instead (one of Kelder's books introduced this author to the exercises). Kelder tells you how to start gradually and build up repetitions. He gives you tips for doing the exercises safely, and alternate ways to do them effectively when you are starting out and not yet strong, flexible, or confident enough to do them fully. Kelder's Book 2 has more detail, but I started with Book 1 and it was more than adequate. Kilham's book contains none of this basic information, which makes it suitable for practitioners of other Eastern physical movement like yoga or Qi-Gong but difficult for people without that experience. I do very much agree with him that breathing enhances the exercises. Beginners may want to get comfortable with the exercises first, and then add the breathing. If you want some simple exercises you can do in less than 10 minutes, anywhere, with no equipment, where you'll really get results - the Five Tibetans are awesome!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Essential to the understanding of the 5 Tibetans
    If you are a fan of yoga, and have never heard of the Five Tibetans (or even if you have, and aren't quite sure what they are) this book is for you. The author's language is simple, yet eloquent. The reader gets a basic knowledge of the chakras, Kundalini meditation, deep relaxation techniques and basic pranayama ("breathing exercises"). The actual Five Tibetans (yoga-inspired exercises) are well depicted in black and white photos (except for the first Tibetan, in which you spin clock-wise 21 times).

    The author claims that these exercises can be done in about 5-6 minutes. It takes me a little longer than that to complete 21 repetitions of each movement, but the effects are wonderful. I find them invigorating, and have started to use them at the beginning of my daily yoga practice.
    One word of caution: if you get dizzy easily, cut the first Tibetan short. There are still days that all 21 reps are not possible for me to complete. In short, this book is an interesting, easy read and a handy resource.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My Seven Chakras Thank You!
    Long ago I discarded weightlifting and running to become a full-time couch potato. The reason: I very quickly become bored with the repetition of exercise--any exercise. I'd rather watch Fox News girls than sweat through curls anyway, so my motivation to resume physical activity was zilch.

    Then, via the magic of the Internet, I heard about THE FIVE TIBETANS, and I bought this slim and trim volume. This was my cup of yogic tea: five exercises--none of them too vigorous--twenty-one reps. And I can easily find ten to twelve minutes a day to perform them. I now enthusiastically look forward to the Tibetans each evening; having utilized them, I now enjoy more energy, sleep better, am more limber. . .stronger. No, the Tibetans are not the regimen for those wanting to look like Olympian gods, but then again, I'm not going to compete in any triathlon; the pace and intensity of these exercises suits me fine.

    Christopher S. Kilham has put together a very informative booklet--one that can be turned to time and again for future reference. His breathing techniques are excellent, by the way. I'm less than enthusiastic about his discussions of kundalini meditation and yoganidra (deep relaxation), but that's just me. I'll just stick to the Tibetans. Finally, I'd like to thank fellow reviewer doctor_beth for bringing to my attention THE FIVE TIBETANS. Muchas gracias, amigo!

    I have been doing the Five Rites since 1996 ( It is now July of 2003). Can't begin to say enough good about them. Bad back, tennis elbow, arthritis in shoulder, all gone. Each left in the reverse order of onset after approximately 4 to 6 months of doing the rites. My energy level increased, I was able to begin riding a bicycle again and now am an avid bicyclist doing abut 15 to 20 miles each night after work and about 50 on a weekend. Just completed a 100 mile ride in under 7 hours. (Not bad at 53 years old). At the onset of the Five rites I began to loose weight and keep it off as well as drop from a 38 to 34 waist. My energy and strength make me feel like I am in my early 30's. I think the key is dedication to the Rites. I recommend this book to everyone. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Might appreciate it more later
    I found the book to be rather difficult to follow through the first few chapters. The middle and end of the book were easier to understand; however, there could have been more examples to clarify some of the rather complex concepts. I have recently purchased another book along the same subject line and it presents the material a little more clearly. I may reread this book later or at least compare Wolf's explanations of quantum physics to those in the other book for clarification. I don't have a physics background (except in high school), so that may have been the problem too.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great work of linking science and spirituality
    Only thing that lacked in the book was the non-explanasion of death as an inbuilt thing the endless fertilization. Other wise a great read. Highly recommended...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Stimulating Topics on Mind, Consciousness & Quantum Physics
    A little tough to understand the first few chapters, but the later half of the book was well worth the wait. Dr. Wolf has a unique way of decribing complex quantum physics concepts, such as the nature of mind, including "scripts" that represent the movement of the conscious observer through parallel worlds. A good book to take on a retreat when you want to get away and think about the deep questions of consciousness in relation to "mind".

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a clear, concise, yet humble and poetic book.
    Fred Alan Wolf has removed another brick in the wall separating us from the realization of our true, divine nature. Even skeptical readers will grasp the line of reasoning that always accompanies Fred Alan Wolf's joyous speculative leaps. As our scientific community continues to advance our understanding of the underlying nature of things, we are also realizing the wisdom in the mystical traditions. Fred Alan Wolf is one of the best writers alive today in the area where advanced physics and mysticism converge. The Unity of all things is a fact, and we are all indeed One. Every time I read a book of this caliber, I am bolstered in my ability to sustain this quiet awareness for a little bit longer in the course of my life, when the noise and competition of mundane awareness distracts me and misleads me into believing otherwise. Those of us who cannot accept faith as a means of navigating through the mystery that is everywhere can take heart in the primacy of experience...the experience that comes from genuine open-minded inquiry, the experience that comes from many meditative states, from intuition, sudden glimpses of clarity that we occasionally stumble into, and the experience that comes from following the mind of someone who knows more than we do.

    Fred Alan Wolf's done it again! His latest book, MIND INTO MATTER, is a masterpiece of insight into the hidden workings of our magical, mysterious universe. As I read this book, I felt exhilarated to join Wolf on his journey "to find our mind" on the frontier of the imaginal and the real.

    MIND INTO MATTER is structured around Wolf's explanation of the significance and meaning behind the first nine letter-symbols in the Hebrew alphabet, with a separate chapter devoted to each Hebrew letter. The book begins with the concept of Spirit within the Void, and continues onward to Creation, Animation, Resistance, Vitality, Replication, Chance, Unification, and Structure. We witness the new alchemy at work in the process of Animation, where we notice how we Think, Feel, Sense, and Intuit the world around us.

    I love Wolf's playful way of describing thought experiments throughout his book, alongside fascinating research material from physicists and neurophysiological researchers that suggest how our conscious minds form memories of events. On a deep level, we are aware of all possibilities available to us, and the one we remember as being real is the one we choose to observe. Since information flows from the future to our present time, we have what we need to select the path we most desire.

    To everyone who wishes to more fully grasp the breadth, depth, and height of who we truly are and how we interact with the universe, I give this book my highest recommendation. ... Read more

    One might expect The Satanic Bible at least to offer a few prancing demons or a virgin sacrifice, but if you hopped this train expecting a tour of the house of horrors, you're on the wrong ride. Far from a manual for conquering the realms of earth, air, fire, and water, The Satanic Bible is Anton LaVey's manifesto of a new religion separate from the "traditional" Judeo-Christian definitions of Satanism. While LaVey rails against the deceit of the Christian church and white magicians, he busily weaves his own deceptions.

    The Satanic Bible claims the heritage of a horde of evil deities--Bile', Dagon, Moloch, and Yao Tzin to name a few--but these ancient gods have no coherent connection between each other or to Satanism, except that all have been categorized by Christianity as "evil." Calling on these ancient names like a magician shouting, "Abracadabra," LaVey attempts to shatter the classical depiction of Satanism as a cult of black mass and child sacrifice. As the smoke clears, he leads us through a surprisingly logical argument in favor of a life focused on self-indulgence. The Satanic Bible is less bible and more philosophy (with a few rituals thrown in to keep us entertained), but this philosophy is the backbone of a religion that, until LaVey entered the scene, was merely a myth of the Christian church. It took LaVey, and The Satanic Bible, to turn this myth into a legitimate public religion.--Brian Patterson ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars True Magic and Reason Exalted!
    This book has a very special place in my life for two reasons:

    1. It surprised me with it's lack of hype or madness;

    2. I could almost believe, with some grammatical variation, that I had written it myself.

    This book made me aware that I was not "the only one who felt this way". High Priest Anton Szandor LaVey has here written a text that agrees with my own nature.

    I was actually in the process of cleansing the ridiculous bonds of ignorant additions from the Magical Arts when I finally read what I had previously assumed to be a fraudulent, hyped up jest. My only motivation for reading the Satanic Bible initially was purely amusement. I was both surprised and exultant to find that this work was expressing my own feelings and goals. In addition, I was surprised to find it had been written (just) before I was born!

    This is a text that details True Magic and Natural Religion. To authentic Witches and Warlocks it conveys that feeling of "coming home". My only regret is that I shall never meet the author personally.

    If Magic is what you seek - buy this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars At Least, Entertaining...At Most, Enlightening
    Okay, now looking at this book, throw out the words "Satanic" and "Bible" from your consideration. Can you do that? If so, you're ready to embrace everything this book has to offer without the weight of societal prejudice to weigh you down.

    This book isn't talking about hating deity or being the Antichrist or any kind of dross like that. Shock of shocks--this is a book of PHILOSOPHY. Whether LaVey himself originally conceived of these ideas or not is unimportant; he did write them down so that you and I could use our own minds to read, ponder, and draw our own conclusions.

    Here's my tip, folks. LaVey has five Satanic tomes to his credit. Most people begin with the Satanic Bible, but I think this is a mistake. If you are just beginning to explore LaVey's world, read the Devil's Notebook or Satan Speaks! before attempting this one. I say this because the other books are examples of philosophy in action, and the Satanic Bible might be clearer for a reader with this background.

    And if you get easily offended at the word "Satanic", remember there are plenty of people around who would get offended by the word "Bible".

    2-0 out of 5 stars Good basis, but idk if this ever had to go on paper...
    But he made a load of money off of it didnt he!! This book was just the begining of a huge joke which is modern satanism. He took what had been a brutal cult ritualistic religon, and toned it down for the avg. 13 yr old into the 'evils' of rock and roll to grab on to, and now its a big buisness between their corny web page and huge web store w/ everything from pins to cups they are makin a bucketload. What a load of crap, dont bother with this garbage, even if the logic makes sence. The logic in this book is natural type logic, satanism was never meant to be published.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not Extreme Enough
    This is just another one of the writer, Anton LaVey's interesting jobs. They are not extreme enough. I joined a rival, more extreme organization because the views expressed in this book are not extreme enough. The writer was a "satanist" for exhibition; if you know anything about his autobiography it is all false information in order to heighten his image as a satanist. The good parts are the philosophical aspects, particularly the chapter "The Book of Satan" is easy to agree with. I don't point very much adherance into this philosophy anymore. If it were better, it would be more extreme/ intolerance to other belief systems with more degrading language. This is pointless to call it "satanism" because it's just like any other. A more legitimate version of Satanism wouldn't tolerate others' faiths and be 100 percent certain there's is true. This is a weak religion like Wicca.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Modern Satanism defined
    A brief biography of LaVey is given in the introduction by Burton Wolfe, author of several books on Satanism and LaVey. He says 'all the occultists I had met or heard of were white-lighters: alleged seers, prophesiers, and witches wrapping their supposedly mystic powers around God-based, spiritual communication.' However he found LaVey represented something different: 'LaVey seeming to laugh at them if not spit on them in contempt, emerged from between the lines of newspaper stories as a black magician basing his work on the dark side of nature and the carnal side of humanity. There seemed to be nothing spiritual about his "church"' (pg 2). And so the stage is set.

    Following the famous Nine Satanic Statements, the core of the text is broken into four books, titled after the four traditional elements of fire, air earth and water, accompanied by four specific demons associated to be invoked at each ritual.

    LaVey explains that 'most Satanists do not accept Satan as an anthropomorphic being with cloven hooves, a barbed tail, and horns. He merely represents a force of nature - the powers of darkness which have been named for just that because no religion has taken the forces out of the darkness. Nor has science been able to apply technical terminology to this force. It is an untapped reservoir that few can make use of because they lack the ability to use a tool without having to first break down and label all the parts which make it run. It is this incessant need to analyze which prohibits most people from taking advantage of this many faceted key to the unknown - which the Satanist chooses to call "Satan"' (pg 62).

    Despite its seemingly liberal views for the time it was written, there is still a lot of misogyny to be found within its pages. LaVey advocates the use of a naked woman as an altar 'because woman is the natural passive receptor'. Any men participating are to be dressed in black robes, 'the robes may be cowled or hooded, and if desired may cover the face'; while women should be dressed in white sexually suggestive clothing 'fro the purpose of stimulating the emotions of the male participants, and thereby intensifying the outpouring of adrenal or bio-electrical energy which will insure (sic) a more powerful working' (pg 135). Strange how woman is seen as the passive receptor, yet it is women who are responsible for raising energy which the men passively receive and are charged with directing. A shame he was not able to overcome these basic prejudices.

    Considering the number of pages dedicated to Satanic ritual design, there is little magickal theory given. Gods are invoked with little explanation given as to why They in particular were chosen to represent certain roles found in the Western Magickal Tradition. A basic ritual form is outlined, as well as four ready-made invocations for specific purposes. The nineteen Enochian keys compose the largest section of the book, a brief suggestion of the purpose preface each call, first in Enochian, followed by the English translation, modified slightly by LaVey to reflect Satanic rather than godly sentiments.

    The Satanic Bible is highly approachable; the language very unambiguous, so that it is impossible to misunderstand his meaning. Recommended especially for those who are still unclear what modern Satanism is about. ... Read more

    This follow up to Dr. Emoto’s international bestseller The Hidden Messages in Water is the result of his latest scientific research into the healing properties of water. Building upon his previous work, which proved that water and water molecules are affected by our thoughts, words, and emotions, in The True Power of Water, Dr. Emoto makes the case that water literally holds the key to good health and shows how we can interact with it with our thoughts, intentions, and prayer to reverse illness.

    Accompanied by numerous compelling photographs showing that water crystals are transformed according to the positive and negative thoughts they are exposed to, this book provides practical steps that anyone can use to improve their own well-being by learning how to consciously interact with water, the primary component of our bodies. Also discussed is Dr. Emoto’s research into the effects of prayer to purify rain water, helping to bring healing to the earth, as well as the mechanistic limitations of Western medicine and its understanding of both healing and disease. No one who reads Dr. Emoto’s works will ever take water for granted again. ... Read more
