Goodreads is an excellent source for book reviews and information.

These are at the top of my list of favorite books. I’d love to hear/read from you what you think about those.

Some of my reviews on Goodreads

 

Education of Oversoul Seven by Jane Roberts

It takes quite some brain acrobatics to follow this story. But I loved it. Although it’s fiction and contradicts what we have learned in school how the world works, it makes you wonder. And at the end, you feel quite comfortable following Oversoul Seven around with no time and no space. It makes all perfect sense … until you put the book down and come back to time-space reality, and then you wonder some more.

The Vortex: Where the Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships by Esther Hicks, Jerry Hicks

Love it, love it! I read it and listened to the CD many many times, and heard/read something new every time.

Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires by Esther Hicks, Jerry Hicks, Wayne W. Dyer

You would think it is easy to focus on what you want. Apparently, most of us can’t take our focus off what we do not want. This book has been very helpful in recognizing my own clinging to the unwanted.

Sara, Book 1: The Foreverness of Friends of a Feather by Jerry Hicks, Esther Hicks

This may look like a children’s book (,and it is appropriate for children), but it is also fun for an adult to read. It reads like a fairy tale but makes you think about life and life after life. An insightful and comforting “children’s story”.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams by Deepak Chopra

The elders knew it all along… I recognized so many proverbs and old sayings I had learned as a child and never really put in context with spirituality.
Example: “As you make your bed, so you must lie in it.” Deepak Chopra gives a deeper meaning to what I always considered trivia.

Quantum Healing: Exploring the Frontiers of Mind Body Medicine by Deepak Chopra

So many examples from scientific and other experiments in this book show that there is much more to life than the physical body. Our belief (whatever that is and wherever it is located) affects our physical body.
Today, after so many books have been written and so many discoveries have been made, Quantum Healing appears very basic and ‘old news’. But it is still fascinating to read about the grown elephant who is tied up with a flimsy rope. Because he had learned as a young elephant that the rope holds him in place, he still believes he cannot walk away.

Seth Speaks: The Eternal Validity of the Soul by Jane Roberts, Seth (Spirit), Robert F. Butts

I read this book twice, gave it away (as I usually do) and bought it again. That’s how much I love it. I keep going back to look paragraphs up, and I am elated when I see quotes from the book. It is one of the few books I never want to lose again. Every time I read in it, I have more aha moments about life, in the physical and the non-physical realm.
It is not a book you can read in one sitting. At least I had to stop after each chapter and contemplate what I just read.

Wholeness and the Implicate Order by David Bohm

I had watched interviews and read quotes by David Bohm, and it resonated with my understanding (or guessing) of how the world might work. So, I looked forward to read this book. At first, I was disappointed. It seemed to be dry and, on many pages, redundant.
When I realized that I was actually getting a glimpse into his brain, how he thought and how he came to his conclusions, I was hooked. I am not trying to say that I understood every word and thought, but I found it fascinating to watch a brilliant brain like his work.
Three quarters through the book, I found what I had originally hoped to read. He compares the  mechanistic approach to physics and  quantum theory with what he calls the new notion of order or “undivided wholeness”.
Even though the book was written over twenty years ago, it is still fascinating to read and has not lost actuality (as far as I know…)

Power of Awareness: New Edition Incorporating Neville’s Later Notes by Victoria Goddard Neville

Neville Goddard lectured and wrote his books long before law of attraction became a buzz word and before the documentary The Secret and other publications came out. I found it refreshing to read about his thoughts without all of today’s theories and hype. The case studies sound convincing. One story about a young man who imagined himself honorably discharged from the army turns out to be his own experience.
One thing or advice is repeated over and over: you have to act and feel like what you desire has already been fulfilled; thinking, wishing, imagining it is not enough. It is not as easy as it may sound and cannot be repeated and emphasized enough.
As the bible is not relevant to me, I would have enjoyed this book even more if there were fewer bible quotes in it. But I could just skip those pages and enjoy the rest.
