5.0 out of 5 stars Be still and Know I AM "God" - the greatest meditation, 18 Dec 2011
This is probably the smallest and the most direct book that guides the person to experiencing the God within. If you let the words of this book guide you, are really follow the instructions, you'll step into another world and have a taste of your REAL SELF. The book is such a blessing that opens the door wide for you, if you're willing to step across.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book that changes lives, 18 Dec 2011
When I first got this book, it was sitting on the shelf for about five years before I was in the right state of mind to begin working with it. When I did finally get to working with it, I was faced with a problem out of which I had no clue how to get out, so I gave my best shot to this book. I was totally, wholeheartedly committed to working with it and the results paid off beyond my wildest dreams. I have read many helpful book in my lifetime, but none has such a profound and lasting effect as this one.

Working with A Course in Miracles never ends, but the most dramatic changes I have experienced were during that first year, when my perception and experience of the world turned on its head and the world, my relationship to it, my experience of the world, has permanently changed.

It's been 11 years since that time, but A Course in Miracles is still alive and well in my mind.

There are people who have picked this book, invested half-hearted attempt in working with it and who got seemingly nothing out of it. Unless you're willing to invest yourself wholeheartedly in working with A Course in Miracles, it's unlikely you'll experience the promises of the book.

Sometimes people join groups and go on asking others for advice as to how they should work with this book. All the instructions are in this book. There is no one on the outside who will help you to get through the Course. This is an inner journey and to travel it successfully, you have to be willing to travel deep within - not with parts of you holding onto the outer world. Only when you are completely willing to drop the outside, will you make it to the other side, in this inner journey. The treasures are hidden deep within. Dive in and discover the wonders that are hidden within you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Delightful Book on Past Life Regression, 18 Dec 2011
This review is from: Mind Probe-Hypnosis (Paperback)
The first thing that distinguishes this book from other past-life regression methods is that the suggestion given to the individual was not to go and revisit past life, but rather simply to "go back to the origin of the problem".

The book begins with Irene Hickmans' assistant (a hypnotist) who couldn't accept the idea of past lives, giving suggestion to the client to go back to the origin of the problem, and the hypnotist becoming bewildered with the client finding herself in another lifetime.

The cases described in this book are both informative and utterly entertaining to read. It is the most wonderful book on past-life regression.

Thirty Years Among the Dead
Thirty Years Among the Dead

5.0 out of 5 stars The book that started it all, 18 Dec 2011
This book is a classic which started the follow-up research and emergence of others books dealing with spirit releasement.

In the course of 30 years, Dr. Wickland was conducting experiments in which his wife served as a medium for deceased spirits of humans who were attached to people diagnosed as having mental problems.

The method involved running a mild-electric current through the patient - the current was low enough to have any adverse effect on the patient, but it successfully evicted the attached spirit, who then entered Mrs. Wickland and spoke through her.

The spirits in this book are mainly just spirits of deceased humans who saw the light after they left their physical body, but were afraid to follow it and ended up stuck on the earth plane. Some, feeling quite alive and well, even though without a physical body, couldn't accept the fact that they don't have physical body any more and that they are what we'd consider "dead" - so when their previously deceased relatives came to assist them with the transition, they ran in the opposite direction - afraid that they are seeing the ghost. The situation as tragic as it is, is at the same rather humorous, and the entire contents of the book are just as entertaining as informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Comprehensive Book on Spirit Releasement, 18 Dec 2011
This book should be on the shelf of every hypnotherapist, particularly those who deal with past-life regression and spirit releasement.

The book has sections that deal with past-life regression, soul fragmentation, spirit releasement.

It describes circumstances in which attachments are most likely to occur and it provides step-by-step procedure for dealing with different cases - whether the possession is partial or complete and whether it involves human discarnate entities, fragments of human consciousness or non-human entities.

The difference between spirit releasement and traditional methods of depossession is that this is a compassionate approach and more-over the method is based on educating and enlightening possessing entities, instead of just tossing them out. The method creates a true win-win situation and as opposite to traditional methods of depossession which sometimes have rather dismal consequences, this method is safe.

The best part is that by the time you're done with this book, you will be enriched with greater understanding and you will have no fear of any discarnate entities. Rather than threatening them or fearing them, you'll be educating them and helping them in making a better choice for all concerned. You'll be sharing love and light and instead of engaging in fear and combat.

From the experiences in my own practice, I can attest that the method works wonders.

Finding True Magic: Transpersonal Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy / NLP
Finding True Magic: Transpersonal Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy / NLP
by Jack Elias
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique book on Transpersonal Hypnotherapy, 18 Dec 2011
This book is unique and there is no other hypnotherapy book that is quite like this one. I do recommend it as additional resource and believe that every hypnotherapist can benefit from reading it.

It is loaded with scripts and different techniques from NLP, Ericksonian hypnosis, working with archetypes and similar. It also does incorporate some eastern terminology and worldview which may be a rather foreign territory for western hypnotherapists who were not involved in Eastern studies and may go over their heads as they may not relate to it.

Nevertheless there are a lot of good scripts of transpersonal nature, where the client is guided to access his deeper wisdom and engage in learnings and transformations which are appropriate for the client. For this purpose scripts use quite a bit of indirect (Ericksonian) hypnotic language patterns.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC on INFLUENCE and PERSUASION, 18 Dec 2011
This book is a classic in the area of influence.

It deals with only 6 tools of persuasion, but it does a mightily good job out of it.

The tools, or weapons, as they are called in this book are: reciprocation, commitment and consistency, social proof, liking, authority and scarcity. The examples of these tools, as used in practice, provided in this book are enlightening and eye-opening.

Whether or not you are involved in influence and persuasion professionally - you will find it very useful to recognize when someone might attempt to use these tools of influence and persuasion on you.

After all these "weapons" are the tools used in sales, advertising, and marketing and you're bound to encounter them in your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goes Well With A Course in Miracles, 18 Dec 2011
Those who have worked with A Course in Miracles may find it the easiest to resonate with this book, and so will those who have worked with "Be Still and Know I AM God" meditation from Impersonal Life.

The pages of this book drip with truth. It is simple and straighforward. It's all about love, God, Oneness and neurological changes that occur in the person as he progresses on the spiritual path.

Uninitiated may want to check "Prometheus Rising" simply because that book describes the levels of understanding that are possible as well as things that a person can accomplish on different levels of psychological / spiritual / neurological development.

This book puts things in a wonderful perspective - it enlightens and clarifies important spiritual points.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, Praise, and Gratitude, 18 Dec 2011
This review is from: YE ARE GODS (Paperback)
All books by Annalee Skarin revolve around the practice of love, praise and gratitude. Those who do practice them in their daily lives will have amazing experiences - I definitely did.

Her books also put the statements from the Bible in the proper perspective and point the correct way of understanding them - through meditating upon them, so that the knowledge and wisdom can emerge from within.

This particular books describes the correct process of using the creative faculty of one's mind to create whatever one may need - the correct way of praying.

Some parts of Annalee Skarin's books closely match the ideas from Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East by Baird T. Spalding.

No blind faith is required to reap the benefits from this book - only practical application of the ideas suggested. The "law of production" so well described in this book is intended to provide sufficient understanding that one will never ever again need to rely on blind faith.

I highly recommend all of her books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intro for Absolute Beginners, 18 Dec 2011
If you know absolutely nothing about hypnosis and you want to get some basic understanding, you can go ahead and read this book. It will guide you step-by-step in your first experiments with hypnosis.

The book provides you with some general overview of hypnosis and areas of use. It also provides you with hypnosis scripts. One warning regarding hypnosis scripts in general - any given script may or may not work for you, so instead of using scripts verbatim as they are presented, feel free to alter the wording to meet your particular needs and preferences.

The secret to your success with hypnosis is in your ability to use your imagination in a way that the desired outcome will feel REAL to you now. When you work with pre-written scripts, you may stumble upon some that work perfectly for you and others that will not do much for you. The entire purpose of the scripts is to help guide your imagination. Once you become experienced with using self-hypnosis, you won't need any more scripts. And even if you are practicing hypnosis on others, once you learn it well, then you also won't be using written scripts, but will guide the person into hypnosis in a way that is appropriate for the particular person.

But, well, it's true you have to begin somewhere and this book is alright to give you an idea, a taste of hypnosis. Just keep in mind that there is much more to hypnosis and if you really want to master it, keep reading, learning and experimenting.

On the positive side, this book is very easy to read. It will guide you through some sample sessions, different routines, and different applicatins of hypnosis.

There are much better books on hypnosis and if the information provided in this book doesn't work for you, it doesn't mean that you are not a good "hypnosis subject" - only that another approach may be more suitable for you - so don't stop with this book.
