GOOD READS & FICTION PARABLES
The Celestine Prophecy – This book may as well be a definitive guide on how to live your life in tune with our natural world! So much truth mixed with a fictional story that takes you away to another world. “An ancient manuscript has been found in Peru. Its contents: nine insights the human race is predicted to grasp as we enter an era of true spiritual awareness. In this gripping adventure-tale, James Redfield offers a compelling vision of the new spiritual understanding that is emerging in human culture. You will instantly recognize the truth of the First Insight: in each of our lives occur mysterious coincidences – sudden, unexplained events that, once interpreted correctly, serve to guide and direct our actions. Join the adventure and let this synchronistic perception guide you through a daring search for the remaining insights. Each will be found in turn, and each will clarify how a growing link with the spiritual is relentlessly transforming human life. Reading like a story of high adventure, but having the in-depth effect of a spiritual parable, The Celestine Prophecy will take you on a journey that will lighten your soul, and connect you with a vision and an experience that is already changing the world.”
Tenth Insight : Holding the Vision – The sequel to The Celestine Prophecy “As you grasp The Tenth Insight your memories will expand to include an understanding of the long expanse of human history and the special mission we all share to bring humanity to answer, as never before, the unspoken questions that loom over all of human experience and in every human heart: Why are we here? What are we to do? Where are we going? Again, with words that resonate with our deepest intuitions and illuminate both the world outside us and within us, James Redfield offers us all a unique, revelatory and ultimately joyful vision of human spirituality. One that could change your life – and perhaps the world.”
The Secret Of Shambhala: In Search Of The Eleventh Insight – “Like James Redfield’s other books, The Secret of Shambhala has a parable effect. Open yourself to this amazing adventure and the experience will stretch your world view. It will also leave you determined to channel your thoughts and wishes into a dynamic force that can help you to liberate your life, enhance the lives of others and actively change the world. In the remote snow-covered mountains near Tibet lies a community long thought to be a mere myth called Shambhala, or Shangri-La. Here, in this place, is knowledge that has been kept hidden for centuries, and an insight that can have a profound impact on the way each of us lives our lives. Your search for Shambhala begins with the words of a child and the vision of an old friend. Those slender clues and a powerful synchronicity will lead to Kathmandu, Nepal, and then to Lhasa, Tibet.”
The Twelfth Insight – “The Twelfth Insight is the fourth book in the hugely successful Celestine series. It is an adventure tale that is both suspenseful and contemplative, and builds on the insights introduced in Redfield’s previous books. It describes a new wave of tolerance and integrity that is emerging in reaction to years of conflict, warfare and political corruption. With unsurpassed insight, James Redfield continues the astounding spiritual journey that is the Celestine series. Through deep intuition of the world within and without he moves the series into the future, showing us that 2012 is not about the end of the world – but about the unifying life of everyday miracles.”
The Alchemist – This is one of our all-time favorite books!! “A global phenomenon, The Alchemist has been read and loved by over 62 million readers, topping bestseller lists in 74 countries worldwide. Now this magical fable is beautifully repackaged in an edition that lovers of Paulo Coelho will want to treasure forever. Every few decades a book is published that changes the lives of its readers forever. This is such a book – a beautiful parable about learning to listen to your heart, read the omens strewn along life’s path and, above all, follow your dreams. Santiago, a young shepherd living in the hills of Andalucia, feels that there is more to life than his humble home and his flock. One day he finds the courage to follow his dreams into distant lands, each step galvanised by the knowledge that he is following the right path: his own. The people he meets along the way, the things he sees and the wisdom he learns are life-changing. With Paulo Coelho’s visionary blend of spirituality, magical realism and folklore, The Alchemist is a story with the power to inspire nations and change people’s lives.”
The Hidden Science of Lost Civilizations : The Source Field Investigations – “A hidden intelligence, a living energy field that the universe is built from, which David Wilcock calls the Source Field, guides mankind’s destiny. David Wilcock has studied this intelligence for over thirty years and has come to understand that the Source Field is the key to unlocking the mysteries mankind have always struggled to answer: who are we, how did we get here and where are we going? Drawing upon alternative science, as well as cutting-edge quantum physics and consciousness research, Wilcock connects the scientific with lost traditions of ancient wisdom to predict what lies in mankind’s future.”
The Synchronicity Key : The Hidden Intelligence Guiding the Universe and You – “In The Synchronicity Key, David Wilcock embarks on an astonishing investigation into what lies beyond–finding proof that everything in our lives is not only connected, but it also influences everything else. Using history, astrology, and synchronicity theory among other concepts, Wilcock shows that there is hidden architecture within time, guiding individuals and nations through a system of enlightenment Joseph Campbell called the Hero’s Journey. Historical events occur in shockingly precise, repeating cycles of time as a result. Once we understand and identify the hidden laws of this seemingly random “synchronicity,” we are left with a remarkable blueprint of how best to lead our lives in this uncertain and confusing world.”
The Holographic Universe : The Revolutionary Theory of Reality – “Now with a new foreword by Lynn McTaggart, author of The Field, Michael Talbot’s classic treatise on the latest frontiers of physics reveals a revolutionary theory of reality, explaining the paranormal abilities of the mind, the unsolved riddles of brain and body, and the true nature of the universe. Lyall Watson, author of Supernature, calls The Holographic Universe “elegant,” writing, “[Talbot] helps to bridge the artificial gap that has opened up between mind and matter, between us and the rest of the cosmos.”
The Only Award-Winning English Translation of Sun Tzu’s The Art of War – “The only translation that shows the original Chinese with a transliteration of each character side-by-side with the English sentence translation. Includes a glossary explaining Sun Tzu’s definitions of the key Chinese concepts. There are many translations of The Art of War, but this is only truly accurate version written by America’s leading expert on Sun Tzu’s system. Winner of the Independent Publishers Book Award for the best Multicultural Nonfiction book of the year!”
Return to the Brain of Eden : Restoring the Connection Between Neurochemistry and Consciousness – Want to know why humans are frugivores and thrive on a high fruit diet? It’s in our ancestry and design! “An exploration of our fall from the pinnacle of human evolution 200,000 years ago and how we can begin our return – Explores recent neurological and psychological research on the brain and the role of plant biochemistry in human brain expansion – Explains how humanity’s prehistoric diet change led to a neuro-degenerative condition characterized by aggression and a fearful perception of the world – Outlines a strategy of raw foods, tantric sexuality, shamanic practices, and entheogens to reverse our mental degeneration and restore our advanced abilities Over a period of a million years the human brain expanded at an increasingly rapid rate, and then, 200,000 years ago, the expansion abruptly stopped. Modern science has overlooked this in order to maintain that we are at the pinnacle of our evolution. However, the halt in brain expansion explains not only recently uncovered anomalies within the human brain but also the global traditions of an earthly paradise lost and of humanity’s degeneration from our original state of perpetual wonder and joy.”
Becoming Supernatural – “What would it mean to become supernatural? What if you could tune in to frequencies beyond our material world… change your brain chemistry to access transcendent levels of awareness… create a new future… and
transform your very biology to enable profound healing? This is what Dr. Joe Dispenza offers in this revolutionary book: a body of knowledge and a set of tools that allow ordinary people-people just like you-to reach extraordinary states of being.”
Dying to be Me : My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing – “In this truly inspirational memoir, Anita Moorjani relates how, after fighting cancer for almost four years, her body -overwhelmed by the malignant cells spreading throughout her system – began shutting down. As her organs failed, she entered into an extraordinary near-death experience where she realized her inherent worth …and the actual cause of her disease. Upon regaining consciousness, Anita found that her condition had improved so rapidly that she could be released from the hospital within weeks …without a trace of cancer in her body! Within these pages, Anita recounts stories of her childhood in Hong Kong, her challenge to establish her career and find true love, as well as how she eventually ended up in that hospital bed where she defied all medical knowledge. As part of a traditional Hindu family residing in a largely Chinese and British society, she had been pushed and pulled by cultural and religious customs since she was a little girl. After years of struggling to forge her own path while trying to meet everyone else’s expectations, she had the realization, as a result of her epiphany on the other side, that she had the power to heal herself …and that there were miracles in the Universe that she had never even imagined.
In Dying to Be Me, Anita freely shares all she has learned about illness, healing, fear, ‘being love,’ and the true magnificence of each and every human being!”
What if this is Heaven? – “If life is about the journey and not the destination, could it be that this is heaven–this physical life we are living here on Earth? What we experience in our daily lives often feels like anything but heaven. But what if we understood how powerful we are–that we are powerful enough to mold both our internal and our external reality?Anita Moorjani, the New York Times bestselling author of Dying to Be Me, is convinced we can do exactly that. The process, she explains, requires dismantling many cultural myths mistaken for indisputable truths. Beliefs such as “We get what we deserve,” “Loving ourselves is selfish,” and “Coincidences are just that–coincidences,” are ingrained within us from birth, pervasive and influential, leading to generations of misguidance. Following her near-death experience, Moorjani began to embody truths she learned in the other realm, discovering that letting go of these outmoded myths allowed her to experience heaven not as a physical place but as a state of mind, right here and right now. In this examination of our common myths, she shares stories and examples from her own life, revealing the lies beneath the surface of what she was taught and absorbed. By freeing ourselves from these falsehoods, Moorjani asserts, we can leave fear, heartache, and self-imposed boundaries behind and instead live lives full of purpose and joy.”
Fingerprints Of The Gods – “Fingerprints of the Gods is a revolutionary rewrite of history that has persuaded millions of readers throughout the world to change their preconceptions about the history behind modern society. An intellectual detective story, this unique history book directs probing questions at orthodox history, presenting disturbing new evidence that historians have tried – but failed – to explain. This groundbreaking evidence includes: Accurate ancient maps that show the world as it last looked during the Ice Age, thousands of years before any civilization capable of making such maps is supposed to have existed; Evidence of the devastating scientific and astronomical information encoded into prehistoric myths; The incredible feat of the construction of the great pyramids of Egypt and of megalithic temples on the Giza plateau; The mysterious astronomical alignments of the pyramids and the Great Sphinx; The antediluvian geology of the Sphinx; The megalithic temples of the Andes.
* The myths of Viracocha and Quetzalcoatl; The pyramids of the Sun and the Moon in Mexico; The doomsday calendar and eerie memories of the ancient Maya; The warning from the Hopi of Arizona.”
Magicians of the Gods : The Forgotten Wisdom of Earth’s Lost Civilization – the Sequel to Fingerprints of the Gods – “Graham Hancock’s multi-million bestseller Fingerprints of the Gods remains an astonishing, deeply controversial, wide-ranging investigation of the mysteries of our past and the evidence for Earth’s lost civilization. Twenty years on, Hancock returned with the sequel to his seminal work filled with completely new, scientific and archaeological evidence, which has only recently come to light. On the heels of the very successful hardcover edition, Hancock returns with this paperback version including two chapters brimming with recent reporting of fresh scientific advances (ranging from DNA to astrophysics) that substantially support the case.”
America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization – “Hancock’s books provide a fascinating, alternative version of prehistory. America Before, detailed and wide-ranging, turns what was myth and legend into a new story of the past.’ Daily Mail. Was an advanced civilization lost to history in the global cataclysm that ended the last Ice Age? Graham Hancock, the internationally bestselling author, has made it his life’s work to find out — and in America Before, he draws on the latest archaeological and DNA evidence to bring his quest to a stunning conclusion.”
This wouldn’t be a complete list without a few titles from Gregg Braden! Here’s our top 6 choices:
The Divine Matrix : Bridging Time, Space, Miracles, and Belief – “In 1944, Max Planck, the father of quantum theory, shocked the world by saying that this “matrix” is where the birth of stars, the DNA of life, and everything between originates. Recent discoveries reveal dramatic evidence that Planck’s matrix – The Divine Matrix – is real. It is this missing link in our understanding that provides the container for the universe, the bridge between our imagination and our reality, and the mirror in our world for what we create in our beliefs. To unleash the power of this matrix in our lives, we must understand how it works and speak the language that it recognizes. For more than 20 years, Gregg Braden, a former senior aerospace computer systems designer, has searched for the understanding to do just that. In this paradigm-shattering book, Gregg shares what he’s found. Through 20 keys of conscious creation, we’re shown how to translate the miracles of our imagination into what is real in our lives. With easy-to-understand science and real-life stories, Gregg shows us that we’re limited only by our beliefs, and what we once believed is about to change!”
The Spontaneous Healing of Belief : Shattering the Paradigm of False Limits – “Did you know that we are born with the power to choose what’s real in our world? What would it mean to discover that everything from the DNA of life to the future of our world is based upon a simple ‘Reality Code’ that may be changed and upgraded by choice? Revolutionary discoveries in the power of belief suggest that we’re about to find out! For more than 20 years, Gregg Braden, a former senior aerospace computer systems designer, has searched for this understanding. He illustrates how the secret of spontaneously healing our false beliefs was left in the coded language of our most cherished traditions. Join Gregg as he shares the power of this mystery in our lives and invites us to the spontaneous healing of our own beliefs.”
Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer : The Hidden Power of Beauty, Blessing, Wisdom, and Hurt – “Could our deepest hurts reveal the key to a powerful form of prayer that was lost 17 centuries ago? What can we learn today from the great secret of our most cherished traditions? ‘There are beautiful and wild forces within us.’ With these words, the mystic St Francis described what ancient traditions believed was the most powerful force in the universe – the power of prayer. For more than 20 years, Gregg Braden has searched for evidence of a forgotten form of prayer that was lost to the West following the biblical edicts of the early Christian Church. In the 1990s, he found and documented this form of prayer still being used in the remote monasteries of central Tibet. He also found it practised in sacred rites throughout the high deserts of the American Southwest.”
The God Code : The Secret of Our Past, the Promise of Our Future – “A coded message has been found within the molecules of life, deep within the DNA in each cell of our bodies. In this book what we once believed of our past is about to change. Through a remarkable discovery linking Biblical alphabets to our genetic code, the ‘language of life’ may now be read as the ancient letters of a timeless message. This message is the same in each cell of every man, woman, and child, past and present. During his extensive 12-year study of the most sacred and honoured traditions of humankind he has discovered tangible and unprecedented evidence that we are all part of a greater existence.”
Isaiah Effect : Decoding the Lost Science of Prayer and Prophecy – “A Groundbreaking Interpretation of Prayer, Quantum Science, and Prophecy. Only one document was discovered completely intact among the 25,000 fragments of papyrus, parchment, and hammered copper known as the Dead Sea Scrolls: the Great Isaiah Scroll. Nearly one thousand years older than existing copies of the Old Testament’s Book of Isaiah, the twenty-two-foot-long parchment was still rolled and sealed in its original earthen vase when it was discovered in 1946. The completeness of the Isaiah Scroll offers unprecedented insight into the power of an ancient mystery — a lost mode of prayer — that modern science is just beginning to understand.”
Deep Truth : Igniting the Memory of Our Origin, History, Destiny and Fate – “When new discoveries cast doubt on existing beliefs, it’s time to rethink the beliefs! A new world is emerging before our eyes, while the unsustainable world of the past struggles to continue. Both worlds reflect the beliefs of our past. Both exist – but only for now. Which world do you choose? Bestselling author and visionary scientist Gregg Braden suggests that the hottest issues that divide us – seemingly separate concerns such as war, terror, abortion, suicide, genocide, the death penalty, poverty, economic collapse, and nuclear war – are actually related. They all stem from the false assumptions of an outdated science, assumptions that have brought us to the brink of disaster and the loss of all that we cherish as a civilization.”
1984 – This book may as well be a documentary of modern times! “1984 is George Orwell’s terrifying vision of a totalitarian future in which everything and everyone is slave to a tyrannical regime. Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth in London, chief city of Airstrip One. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities. Despite the police helicopters that hover and circle overhead, Winston and Julia begin to question the Party; they are drawn towards conspiracy. Yet Big Brother will not tolerate dissent – even in the mind. For those with original thoughts they invented Room 101. . . ‘Right up there among my favourite books … I read it again and again’ Margaret Atwood. ‘More relevant to today than almost any other book that you can think of’ Jo Brand
Eckankar-The Key to Secret Worlds – “The rockets of the twentieth century ushered man into the exciting frontiers of outer space. But what of his inner universe? Unfortunately, it remains a black hole of mystery and speculation. The lightning-fast pace of today leaves us with little time to ask: What on earth am I doing here? Our search for love, wisdom, and freedom has so far been mostly in vain. Then our eyes catch sight of the enchanting words Soul Travel! Dare we hope? Soul Travel is the means the great saints have always used to find the secret kingdom of God while still in their physical bodies. Today, the worlds of God again beckon the restless and weary traveler. All he needs for this journey is a road map and a willing heart. ECKANKAR–The Key to Secret Worlds is the map, but the reader must bring his willingness and curiosity.”

In the tradition of Eckankar’s retro-classic graphic novel Talons of Time, this new book sends you on an unmatched adventure beyond time and space. But be aware! By the time you reach the story’s end, you just may experience your own spiritual awakening!”
The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad – “The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad means Way of the Eternal. These writings are the scriptures of Eckankar, Religion of the Light and Sound of God. Though they’re possibly the oldest teachings known on earth, they speak to you directly–today. They come alive in your heart.Through The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad you will discover an answer to every human question ever yet, or to be, devised. Its pages tell what life really consists of and how to live it. Eckankar is ancient wisdom for today. Its teachings, which resurfaced in 1965, emphasize the value of personal experiences as the most natural way back to God.
