Leaving The Body : A Complete Guide To Astral Projection By D. Scott Rogo

Direct Download OR Buy

Do you have soul? will any part of you survive death? 

If you believe you have some kind of soul, that some part of you will survive death, how do you know your belief isn't superstitious non-sense, fearfully clung to by you because you can't face up to the inevitability and finality of death? Astral projection, the ability to "leave the body" at will, is a phenomeon that has long fascinated the general public. 

Not only are books on the subject popular best-sellers, but many people have long clamored for information about how the experience can be induced and learned. As someone who has been a student of the subject for many years, I am still constanly amazed at the number of requests I get for this type of information. 

Many techniques traditionally used to induce the OOBE focus on relaxation, entering a sleeplike state, auto-hypnosis, or the induction of similar "twilight zone" state of consciousness. 

But few people realize that one of the first empirically derived methods for inducing OBEs was much more dynamic and volitional. 

The key was the use of directly focused concentration. 

This technique was first developed by French researchers around the turn of the twentieth century, although their research and procedures are barely remembered today.

Do you work magic with herbs? Do you use them in spells, for talismans or simply use their innate powers? If you don't have Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs, you need to get it right away. 

This book has become a classic in its field. Paul Beyerl, a respected author on herbs calls it "…an essential reference book by students of herbalism and magick alike … Scott's personable charm touches every page… I highly recommend this book." And Jeanne Rose, famous author of books on herbs and developer of an herbal course says "I love books like this … It is accessible, easy to read, and with its encompassing index (all too often neglected), simple to use as well." 

Over 200,000 people already have this book and use it frequently. In this edition of the book (it's expanded and revised on the 15th anniversary of original publication) you will find the magical properties and folklore of over 400 herbs! You'll also find lists of herbs based on their magical powers, their genders, their planetary rulers, and more. 

Perhaps the most important list is the folk name cross-reference. With that information, when a recipe calls for "bramble, " you'll know it needs blackberry. Or if the magic calls for "enebro," you'll know you that is juniper. The main part of this book is the listings of the herbs. Each one includes names, associations, and magical attributions. 

Violets can be used for protection, luck, love, and more. Primrose is for protection and love. Garlic is for protection, healing, exorcism, lust, and prevention of theft.

The Complete Book of Incense, Oils and Brews By Scott Cunningham

Direct Download OR Buy

One of the secrets of real magic is that it is controlled by the mind. The more things in your ritual to help your mind associate with your goal, the more powerful your ritual may be. Colored candles, scented oils, natural incenses, and more all add to the impact of the magic you wish to do. 

But how do you know which incense to burn? Is it possible to add scented oils together to get a more powerful oil? And how do you make your own appropriately-scented tools? The answers to questions like these and hundreds more can be found in The Complete Book of Incense, Oils and Brews by world-famous author Scott Cunningham. 

This is a greatly expanded and rewritten version of The Magic of Incenses, Oils and Brews. It includes over 100 new formulas, proportions for each element of the recipes (the most requested feature from his previous book), how to substitute ingredients, and much more. Besides the formulas, it also includes the exact methods of making all of these scented tools, including how to extract the essences from the herbs. 

Each one of the formulas in this magic book is precise and easy to make. Do you need luck? Take 2 parts vetivert, 2 parts allspice, 1 part nutmeg, and 1 part calamus, grind them together as finely as possible, then sprinkle the powder in a circle around you, beginning and ending in the East and moving clockwise. Sit within this circle and absorb the powder's energies. 

Also included are other ways to use magical powders that will have you coming up with your own ideas for them, too. There is a legion of recipes for incenses. There are three for the sun and two for consecrating talismans. There are incenses for each of the astrological signs and ones to help you study better and gain success. 

You'll also find incenses for each of the planetary influences. There are four for Saturn alone! This compendium of magical lore is a vital tool for every magical person on any magical path, whether you are a beginner or an expert.

Evolution of the Self By Anonymous

The prevailing theory of evolution according to Darwin as adapted and altered over the years has run its course. It no longer fits the science. It no longer answers the questions raised by epigenetics, clinical death, social behavior and molecular physics. 

Darwin’s theory as adapted also conflicts with the notions of love, personality, faith and the uniqueness of each person, illustrated by our unique fingerprints, irises, DNA and behavior. Evolution of the Self unveils a scientifically validated understanding of evolution - illuminating our past and future, as well as our choices for personal evolution.

Occultism For Beginners By William H. Dower

Direct Download OR Buy

Occultism as a Science of life-forces, gives a key to the art of right living in accord with the Divine and Natural plan of evolution. That the Lessons of this First Series may be a practical help to all who read these pages is the earnest hope of the writer. 

The Lessons were first printed in The Temple Artisan, a monthly magazine published at Halcyon, California, and have now been issued in booklet form because of the many requests for them, impossible of fulfillment otherwise. 

To emphasize important points, if possible, with mantramic effect, some words and sentences in the Lessons have been purposefully put in a style and printed form designed to vitalize the mental impression of the reader. 

Arcane truths are never acquired by thinking along lines of established precedent. Striking out boldly from the much trodden paths of accepted beliefs, the earnest student must blaze new trails in the Wonderland of Universal Nature, spiritual and material, always relating, however, each newly discovered truth to the Unity of the All in One and the One in All. 

He who would know the origin and destiny of things; who would win the power to measure in his consciousness the infinitely great by the infinitely small, the infinitely small by the infinitely great; who would know the basic principles of his relations, spiritually and materially, to the Cosmic Whole and to all his other selves and parts, mineral, vegetable, animal, human and superhuman; who would know the Law of his interdependence with all life; such an one is a seeker after Occult Knowledge — and for all such, these Lessons are intended. 


Chapter I. The Meaning Of Occultism. 
Chapter II. The Cellular Man. 
Chapter III. Seven-Fold Correspondences Of Cell. 
Chapter IV. Visible And Invisible Man. 
Chapter V. The Nature Of The Soul. 
Chapter VI. Spirit And Matter. 
Chapter VII. The Root Consciousness Of Man. 
Chapter VIII. The Pituitary Body. 
Chapter IX. Pituitary Body And Pineal Gland. 
Chapter X. The Brain, A Synthetic Center. 
Chapter Xl Reincarnation. 
Chapter XII. The Seven Harmonies. 
Chapter XIII. Ten Basic Truths. 
Chapter XIV. The Mystery Of The Heart. 
Chapter XV. Spiritual Correspondences Of The Heart. 

Excerpts: By Occultism is meant a knowledge of the finer forces of Nature. The finer forces of nature are those not generally perceptible to the outer Five Senses of man. But there is no sharp line between the inner, finer forces, and the outer, grosser forces. Likewise between the outer material senses and the inner spiritual senses. These merge gradually one into the other. 

The outer material forces manifest when outer conditions are made for that purpose. The inner spiritual forces manifest when inner astral or spiritual conditions are made on inner planes. The outer, however, is dependent on the inner as the Material Universe is dependent on the Spiritual Universe. The outer is a reflection of the inner. Steam, Electricity, Magnetism, Chemical Action, Gravitation, Light and Sound are outer, perceptible forces based on inner causes. Thought, Will, Desire, Love, Vital Magnetism and so on, are occult forces, not perceptible to the five senses save by their effects. 

As with the man so with the Universe as a whole. The Infinite is mirrored in the Finite. What we call matter is materialized or crystallized spiritual substance—that is, the one primordial eternal substance in a lower rate of vibration. Likewise, there is but one Force. 

The higher differentiations of this one force are the finer occult forces of life, simply having a high rate of vibration in spiritual substance. The exterior forces are lower rates of vibration in the same substance. There is no such thing as vibration in itself. Something must vibrate.

Living in and from the heart, requires courage, To BE open to whatever presents itself in the moment. Many inspired this life in numerous ways, Through the Tango Life plays. 

I Thank ALL without giving any names, In the end there is NONE to hold any claims. THAT which unifies us ALL Is deeper than form and untouched by time.

The Consciousness of the Atom By Alice A. Bailey

Direct Download OR Buy

The eminent esoteric author Alice Bailey, published dozens of books. This book was originally delivered as a series of weekly lectures. Bailey, even at this point in her career, shows a mature grasp of esoteric issues, and deftly brings in scientific concepts such as radioactivity and the fourth dimension. 

Unlike some other authors of this genre, she invokes leading-edge science when it moves the argument ahead, not to impress the reader with her erudition, or to baffle the audience with irrelevant facts. She sees the universe as alive at all scales of existence. 

While the comparison of an atom to a solar system no longer holds true, her vision of how consciousness evolves even in the micro-scale and macro-scale, and how that is mirrored in the tripartate human being, is a lucid explanation of an occult world-view expressed by many other thinkers.

Problems of Humanity By Alice A. Bailey

Direct Download OR Buy

The books of Alice A. Bailey, written in cooperation with a Tibetan teacher between 1919-1949, constitute a continuation of the Ageless Wisdom--a body of esoteric teaching handed down from ancient times in a form which is always suitable to each period. 

Intended to precede and condition the coming era, the Alice A. Bailey writings offer an unparalleled spiritual approach to such subjects as the teaching on Shamballa and the Path of spiritual evolution; the spiritual Hierarchy; the new discipleship and training in meditation as a form of service; the teaching on the seven rays and the new psychology of the soul; the teaching on esoteric astrology; and the new world religion, which emphasizes the common thread of truth linking all the major world faiths. 

The text of this book was first published in pamphlet form immediately after the World War II. It was intended to show the acute problems existing in seven main areas of human life following the devastating experience of global warfare. It is realised that the problems themselves had existed in a more or less inconspicuous form and with increasing effect on human society for numbers of year. The war served to precipitate incipient causes of disruption in human relationships and to reveal unacknowledged depths of evil and ignorance. 

The present paperback edition of Problems of Humanity, published in 1964, is revised and edited to eliminate all out-of-date facts and information. Six basic problems continue, however, to confront humanity with opportunity for progress: the psychological rehabilitation of the nations; the problem of the children of the world; the problem of capital, labour and employment; the problem of the racial minorities; the problem of the churches; the problem of international unity and the equitable distribution of the world's resources. 

From these many other social and economic problems arise, essentially resulting from growth in human consciousness and progress in many underprivileged countries and communities towards freedom, equality and interdependence in a modern world. The basic teaching on these human problems contained in the original pamphlets has been preserved without change. 

A perspective is shown here which relates the spiritual potential and subjective factors to the outer appearance of human affairs. Continuing cleavages in consciousness; psychological evaluations and reactions to world conditions; national, religious, class or racial prejudice; conditions of illiteracy, disease and poverty, and economic imbalance, are all responsible for creating and perpetuating conditions in which war is inevitable. Recognition of causes within these problems, however, provides opportunity to those who love and serve their fellowmen. 

To deal with effects with understanding, compassion and intelligence, the first prerequisite is the ability for clear, unbiased thought - a form of meditative focus - so helping to create the thoughtform of solution. All men and women of goodwill are concerned with the solution of these problems. They are particularly the concern of those accepting the self-discipline of training for discipleship in the new age, those world servers capable of relating esoteric truths and spiritual realities to the field of service in which they are placed. The esotericist of today is a practical worker. 

His illumined consciousness makes available to him a source of energy supply which is inexhaustible and which originates within the circulating energy of the One Life. He thus becomes a centre of energy transmission between Hierarchy and humanity, reflecting the soul, or Christ principle, throughout his service environment, illuminating and lifting the darkened areas of human consciousness. His knowledge of world affairs and human problems helps him to direct his energies where they can be of most service.

Letters on Occult Meditation By Alice A. Bailey

The science of meditation, as a mind-training technique, is increasingly practiced everywhere. Meditation is concerned with energy flow, energy which is impersonal and fiery in nature; its potential dangers should therefore be understood and avoided, and practices adopted which are safe and trustworthy. This book sets out the basic factors, general and specific, showing the overall objective of the science of meditation to be planetary service.

From Intellect to Intuition By Alice A. Bailey

Direct Download OR Buy

The books of Alice A. Bailey, written in cooperation with a Tibetan teacher between 1919-1949, constitute a continuation of the Ageless Wisdom--a body of esoteric teaching handed down from ancient times in a form which is always suitable to each period. 

Intended to precede and condition the coming era, the Alice A. Bailey writings offer an unparalleled spiritual approach to such subjects as the teaching on Shamballa and the Path of spiritual evolution; the spiritual Hierarchy; the new discipleship and training in meditation as a form of service; the teaching on the seven rays and the new psychology of the soul; the teaching on esoteric astrology; and the new world religion, which emphasizes the common thread of truth linking all the major world faiths. 

In this era of a rapid increase in human intelligence and capacity to use the mind we run the risk of over-emphasis on intellectualism. The mind is the slayer of the real" is a well-known reflection of an inherent danger. In this book From Intellect to Intuition development of the intellect, while necessary, is shown as a means to an end and one step on the way to a fully awakened and active mental body. 

The intellect is the rationalising, analytical aspect of the mind, concerned with knowledge. It can be used as a stepping-stone to penetrate into new realms and dimensions of thought, and to touch and awaken the intuitive faculty of pure reason. Between the intellect and the intuition, however, a gap exists until it has been consciously bridged through meditation. Meditation is sometimes defined as thinking in the heart; correct meditation proceeds only when the heart and mind function together in unison. 

To touch the intuition, therefore, this blending of heart and mind is a necessity, since the intuitive sense is a faculty of the heart aroused by the activity of the integrated, three-fold mind. Meditation is also the deliberate application of discipline to the mind to render it controlled, concentrated and one-pointed at will. 

Right use of the mind in meditation opens the consciousness to the beauty, truth and goodness of the soul, through the five stages of concentration-meditation-contemplation-illumination-inspiration. These five stages lead to union with the soul - the son of mind - and direct knowledge of divinity, creating an instrument of intelligence for the soul to use in daily life. 

The experienced voice of the eastern wisdom comes to us with one word: Meditation. The question naturally arises: 'Is that all?' and the answer is: Yes. If meditation is rightly followed, and if perseverance is the keynote of the life, then increasingly soul contact is established. The results of that contact work out in self-discipline, in purification, and in the life of aspiration and of service. Meditation in the eastern sense is ...a strictly mental process, leading to soul knowledge and illumination. It is a fact in nature that ,as a man thinketh (in his heart) so is he.

Mind and Matter By C. E. M. Joad

Direct Download OR Buy

The issues raised by these questions are highly controversial, and agreed conclusions are lacking on almost every subject upon which we shall touch. 

Different groups of thinkers entertain different views, with regard to which, although there may be agreement within each group, it may be confidently asserted that no one group will be found to accept the conclusions of any other. 

It is indeed improbable that the true nature of mind and matter, and the truth about the way in which they interact will be known until the whole truth about everything is known. As the discovery of the whole truth about everything is highly improbable, and is, in any case, an extremely remote contingency, the problem of the relationship between mind and matter may, for all practical purposes, be regarded a insoluble.

Magic in Ancient Egypt By Geraldine Pinch

Direct Download OR Buy

The Egyptians were famous in the ancient world for their knowledge of magic. Religion, medicine, technology and what we would call magic co-existed without apparent conflict, and it was not unusual for magical and 'practical' remedies to be used side by side. 

In this newly updated edition, Dr Pinch examines the connections between myth and magic, and the deities such as Bes and Isis who had special magical importance. She discusses the techniques of magic, its practitioners and the surviving magical texts, as well as the objects which were used in magic: figurines, statues, amulets and wands. 

Finally, she shows how the influence of Egyptian magic has continued right up to the 21st century.

The Unfettered Mind : Writings from a Zen Master to a Master Swordsman By Takuan Soho

Direct Download OR Buy

This classic samurai-era text fused Japanese swordsmanship with Zen and influenced the direction that the art has taken ever since. Written by the seventeenth-century Zen master Takuan Soho (1573–1645), The Unfettered Mind is a book of advice on swordsmanship and the cultivation of right mind and intention. 

It was written as a guide for the samurai Yagyu Munenori, who was a great swordsman and rival to the legendary Miyamoto Musashi. 

Takuan was a giant in the history of Zen; he was also a gardener, calligrapher, poet, author, adviser to samurai and shoguns, and a pivotal figure in Zen painting. He was known for his brilliance and acerbic wit. 

In these succinct and pointed essays, Takuan is concerned primarily with understanding and refining the mind—both generally and when faced with conflict. 

The Unfettered Mind was a major influence on the classic manifestos on swordsmanship that came after it, including Miyamoto Musashi's Book of Five Rings and Yagyu Munenori's Life-Giving Sword.

E-Squared : Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality By Pam Grout

Direct Download OR Buy

Don’t face reality. Create reality! 

E-Squared could best be described as a lab manual with simple experiments to prove once and for all that reality is malleable, that consciousness trumps matter, and that you shape your life with your mind. 

Rather than take it on faith, you are invited to conduct nine 48-hour experiments to prove there really is a positive, loving, totally hip force in the universe. Yes, you read that right. It says prove. 

The experiments, each of which can be conducted with absolutely no money and very little time expenditure, demonstrate that spiritual principles are as dependable as gravity, as consistent as Newton’s laws of motion. For years, you’ve been hoping and praying that spiritual principles are true. 

Now, you can know. E-Squared proves the following: 

1. There is an invisible energy force or field of infinite possibilities. 
2. You impact the field and draw from it according to your beliefs and expectations. 
3. You, too, are a field of energy. 
4. Whatever you focus on expands. 
5. Your connection to the field provides accurate and unlimited guidance. 
6. Your thoughts and consciousness impact matter. 
7. Your thoughts and consciousness provide the scaffolding for your physical body. 
8. You are connected to everything and everyone else in the universe. 
9. The universe is limitless, abundant, and strangely accommodating.

Being Peace By Thich Nhat Hanh

Direct Download OR Buy

An ideal starting-point for those interested in Buddhism, Being Peace contains Thich Nhat Hanh's teachings on peace and meditation. Using real examples from his own life, as well as poems and fables, Nhat Hanh explains his key practices for living "right in the moment we are alive." 

These lessons are taught with fine writing and sparkling phrases that draw the reader in and make Being Peace a book that encourages multiple readings, both alone and in groups. This new edition of Nhat Hanh's seminal bestseller marks the book's first update since it was released in 1987. 

It includes a new introduction by noted Buddhist Jack Kornfield and beautiful illustrations by internationally recognized artist Mayumi Oda. Still as timely as when it was first published over 15 years ago, Being Peace is a revelation for anyone concerned with the state of the world and the quality of life.

Zen Keys : A Guide to Zen Practice By Thich Nhat Hanh

Direct Download OR Buy

Thich Nhat Hanh brings his warmth and clarity to this unique explication of Zen Buddhism. Beginning with a discussion of daily life in a Zen monastery, Nhat Hanh illustrates the character of Zen as practiced in Vietnam, and gives the reader clear explanations of the central elements of Zen practice and philosophy. 

Thorough attention is given to concepts such as Awareness and Impermanence, and to contemporary issues such as the conflicts between modern technology and spirituality. The final section includes a set of 43 koans from the 13th century Vietnamese master, Tran Thai Tong, which are translated here for the first time into English. 

Originally published in 1974, Zen Keys has been unavailable for several years but is now reissued by popular demand. Readers will find it as fresh today as when it was first written, and will be struck by the timelessness of its insights. What makes this work particularly compelling is that Nhat Hanh is able to invigorate what in other presentations may seem like empty abstract principles. 

The example he has set in his own life as a relentless advocate for peace brings strength and a realistic understanding to idealistic Buddhist goals. In Zen Keys, Thich Nhat Hanh presents the philosophy which has enabled him to be mindful of peace in every moment. An excellent introduction from Philip Kapleau (author of the classic Three Pillars Of Zen ) provides background on the emerging American Zen tradition.

Love might not be what we think it is. We all seek the happiness that comes from loving and being loved, yet we often find ourselves dissatisfied in our relationships and unable to grasp the cause. 

Thich Nhat Hanh here shows the way to overcome our recurrent obstacles to love—by learning to be mindful, open, and present with ourselves and others. As he explains, “training is needed in order to love properly; and to be able to give happiness and joy, you must practice deep looking directed toward the person you love. 

Because if you do not understand this person, you cannot love properly. Understanding is the essence of love.” This quintessential guide to loving also introduces the four key aspects of love described in the Buddhist tradition—loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and freedom—and describes many simple and direct ways in which we can practice authentic love in our everyday lives.

A Way of Seeing (an edited excerpt) By John Allison

This beautifully written book by Australian poet John Allison shows how poetry can reveal aspects of the world invisible to science. Allison describes the path to 'true imagination', an intensification of ordinary imagination, which can lead to real knowing. 

He examines how poets such as Shakespeare, Blake, Coleridge, Keats, John Ruskin, Gerard Manley Hopkins and Rainer Maria Rilke have developed and practiced this kind of 'deep seeing'.

A Way of Self-Knowledge By Rudolf Steiner

Each of the meditations and aphorisms arises from his spiritual research and demonstrates how such spiritual research is to be undertaken. The "content" is Steiner’s own, but readers can discover their own "content." 

Steiner’s method of awareness—his path of attention to one’s own experience—is universal and truly human. This is a sequel and complement to the classic of inner development, How to Know Higher Worlds. It provides an accessible means to anyone to take the road to self-knowledge and to the world of spirit.

I Am That By Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

This collection of the timeless teachings of one of the greatest sages of India, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, is a testament to the uniqueness of the seer's life and work and is regarded by many as a modern spiritual classic. 

I Am That (first published in 1973) continues to draw new audiences and to enlighten seekers anxious for self-realization. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj was a teacher who did not propound any ideology or religion, but gently unwrapped the mystery of the self. 

His message was simple, direct, and sublime. I Am That preserves his dialogs with the followers who came from around the world seeking guidance in destroying false identities. The sage's sole concern was with the human suffering and the ending of suffering. It was his mission to guide the individual to an understanding of his true nature and the timelessness of being. 

He taught that the mind must recognize and penetrate its own state of being--not "being this or that, here or there, then or now," but just timeless being. 

A simple man, Maharaj was a householder and petty storekeeper in Bombay where he lived and died in 1981 at the age of 84. He had not been educated formally but came to be respected and loved for his insights into the crux of human pain and for the extraordinary lucidity of his direct disclosure. Hundreds of diverse seekers traveled the globe and sought him out in his unpretentious home in Bombay (now Mumbai) to hear him. To all of them, he gave hope that "beyond the real experience is not the mind, but the self, the light in which everything appears ... the awareness in which everything happens." 

In the humble abode of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, but for the electric lights and the noises of the street traffic, one would not know in which period of human history one dwells. There is an atmosphere of timelessness about his tiny room; the subjects discussed are timeless -- valid for all times; the way they are expounded and examined is also timeless; the centuries, millennia and yugas fall off and one deals with matters immensely ancient and eternally new. 

The discussions held and teachings given would have been the same ten thousand years ago and will be the same ten thousand years hence. There will always be conscious beings wondering about the fact of their being conscious and enquiring into its cause and aim. 

Whence am I? Who am I? Whither am I? Such questions have no beginning and no end. And it is crucial to know the answers, for without a full understanding of oneself, both in time and in timelessness, life is but a dream, imposed on us by powers we do not know, for purposes we cannot grasp. 

I Am That is a legacy from a unique teacher who helps the reader to a clearer understanding of himself as he comes to Maharaj with the age-old question, "Who am I?" Seekers were never turned away from the humble abode of Maharaj during his life and can still find their answers to this timeless question in the pages of this book today.

Mind Over Medicine : Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself By Lissa Rankin

Direct Download OR Buy

We’ve been led to believe that when we get sick, it’s our genetics. Or it’s just bad luck—and doctors alone hold the keys to optimal health. For years, Lissa Rankin, M.D., believed the same. But when her own health started to suffer, and she turned to Western medical treatments, she found that they not only failed to help; they made her worse. So she decided to take matters into her own hands. 

Through her research, Dr. Rankin discovered that the health care she had been taught to practice was missing something crucial: a recognition of the body’s innate ability to self-repair and an appreciation for how we can control these self-healing mechanisms with the power of the mind. In an attempt to better understand this phenomenon, she explored peer-reviewed medical literature and found evidence that the medical establishment had been proving that the body can heal itself for over 50 years. 

Using extraordinary cases of spontaneous healing, Dr. Rankin shows how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs can alter the body’s physiology. She lays out the scientific data proving that loneliness, pessimism, depression, fear, and anxiety damage the body, while intimate relationships, gratitude, meditation, sex, and authentic self-expression flip on the body’s self-healing processes. 

In the final section of the book, you’ll be introduced to a radical new wellness model based on Dr. Rankin’s scientific findings. Her unique six-step program will help you uncover where things might be out of whack in your life—spiritually, creatively, environmentally, nutritionally, and in your professional and personal relationships—so that you can create a customized treatment plan aimed at bolstering these health-promoting pieces of your life. 

You’ll learn how to listen to your body’s “whispers” before they turn to life-threatening “screams” that can be prevented with proper self-care, and you’ll learn how to trust your inner guidance when making decisions about your health and your life. By the time you finish Mind Over Medicine, you’ll have made your own Diagnosis, written your own Prescription, and created a clear action plan designed to help you make your body ripe for miracles.

The Here & Now Meditation : A Quick and Effective Way to Overcome Suffering By Mimi Khuc & Thanh-Trieu Nguyen

Direct Download OR Buy

Using simple, non-religious language, it condenses great teachings of the past and revolutionizes a meditation method to offer immediate inner peace and happiness. The book identifies the real culprit of our suffering: our own mind. 

But our suffering isn't only from negative thinking as many believe. We suffer because the mind is an entity within us that has ceased to function correctly and can actually confuse and deceive us. Luckily, there is something we can do. And this is because we are not our minds. 

We are much more, and this book shows us how to discover our true selves hidden underneath our chaotic minds. It helps us move past the deafening roar of the mind and enter a state of profound Stillness that has evaded most meditators for centuries. 

In this Stillness, we can experience a peaceful inner silence, see the world with awareness and compassion, feel love for others and ourselves, and transcend suffering despite life's difficulties. 

Written for anyone who has ever experienced emotional suffering in any way, this simple, enlightening text is the perfect aid in achieving personal happiness and reaching spiritual goals. It provides what many other meditation books have tried in vain to supply: a simple, effective method to overcome suffering.

The Illuminati Formula Used to Create an Undetectable Total Mind Controlled Slave By Fritz Springmeier

Direct Download OR Buy

When the mind and emotions are put under extreme stress they "break" and create a new mental-emotional state. It is within these mental states - born of trauma - that the mind can be conditioned. 

That someone would do this intentionally is unthinkable yet it has been done and tested to the degree of a science. "Trauma Based Mind Control" has been used by criminal organizations to maintain secrecy and ensure every order is followed to the letter. 

Through this process you get the Undetectable Total Mind Controlled Slave. Trauma Based Mind Control creates separate personalities within the individual that will carry out their duty with robotic exactness and then "sleep" so that the individual has no memory of their actions. 

These people are used as messengers, drug mules, sexual blackmail slaves and are placed in positions close to the worlds most powerful people. In short, they are used to manipulate and control the lives of the world elite.
