Default Books that changed my life - Tell me more!

I'd love to know about books that directly changed people's lives. There's still space on my bookshelf....

Here's five books that changed mine:

1. "Many Lives, Many Masters" - Dr Brian Weiss

This book opened my eyes to past life hypnosis/reincarnation

2. "Behold a Pale Horse" - William Cooper

The truth about the "alien problem" cost Cooper his life, but it changed mine too

3. "You can heal your life" - Louise Hay

This key self-help book changed my life all those years ago...

4. "Conversations with God" - Neale Donald Walsh

As someone who despises all religion, this series about a world beyond religion changed the way i thought

5. "No more secrets, no more lies" - Patricia Cori

The last in the Sirian Revelations series, this book continues to guide me...



Anyone care to add to my list??? I'm seeking knowledge.....

In search of The Miraculous by P.D.Ouspensky. Originaly titled "Fragments Of An Unknown Teaching" until the american publisher changed it. Gurdjieff is refered to cryptically as G. throughout the book.

The Power of Now -- Eckard Tolle

A masterful work, although some found it to be difficult, I guess when you are already au fait with certain concepts it may make it easier. But there wasn't a wasted word in that book.

End Of Days and Lost Book Of Enki - Both by Zecharia Sitchin. Some see Sitchin as a writer of mythology or speculation, but after months of in-depth research suggested by Bob Dean, I find the books to be factual. Also, Talmudd Of Jmmanuel associated with Billy Meier Contact Notes gave me a different understanding that I can accept and live with as opposed to my former beliefs. Thanks for this thread. I'm always looking for new books to add to my growing experience.

Thanks, all the above sound good, I'll check them out. I read Sitchin's "12th Planet" and his research appears so thorough its hard not to believe. I was interested in stuff about the secret government/illuminati, anyone know of anything beyond what William Cooper has written? Colin Wilson wrote a couple of great books "The Occult" and "Beyond the Occult" which seem relevant to some of their practices....

Krishnamuriti - 'Freedom From the known'

At the time, it changed my life knowing that there was at least one sane man out there, and it's a wonderful book that you can re-read over and over.

Celestine Prophecy and 'The Power is Within You' by Louise Hay were the triggers. Bringers of the Dawn, Earth and the Path of Empowerment by Barbara Marciniak really got things going for me!

Barabara Marciniak? Is she a channeller? I love the channelled stuff. Thats why I like the Billy Meier story. Its amazing. I believe in it, like the Neale Donald Walsh writings. Patricia Cori does chanelling for the Sirian High Council. Mind bending information, whether you believe it or not.

Yes, she channels Pleiadeans. They are beautifully written, filled with wisdom.

Dolores Cannon's series of three books "Conversations With Nostrodamus" and the first one of hers that I read, "The Custodians - Beyond Abduction". Then of course there is Zecharia Sitchin's series of "Earth Chronicles" which were the ones that changed my way of thinking forever and opened the way for me to be able to read the Bible and believe that there really was and is a "God". Coupling the information from these books with what I've learned through Projects Camelot and Avalon, it's comforting to know that we are not alone in the universe and that our souls live forever. I'm looking forward to the day when I will know the answers to all the questions that have bothered me for most of my life. For me personally, this day is not too far off.

Yes, Barbara Marciniak is amazing!!!

Please, please. read, "Family of Light"

you will walk away astounded.... and brand new.....

I dunno how she does it, and Im not very into 'channelers", beside a select couple/few.

But she is amazing, and I plan on reading the rest of her stuff soon.

But please do read Family of Light, my friend.



also, when your done with that, Please check out Barbara Hand Clows book,
The Mayan Code: Time Acceleration and Awakening the World Mind:

this book gives incredible insight and understanding of how the mayan calendar works, as well as everything else going on today, and in the past, and why its all happened, and whats to come next.. just absolutely amazing!

Blessings

After years of absorbing many metaphysical works I can honestly say that Eckhart's "Power of Now" and "New Earth" have had the greatest impact.

Thanks to all for the fantastic recommendations....

Out of interest, here are five novels (rather than the metaphysical works referenced in this thread) that changed me:

1. "Stranger in Strange Land" - Robert Heinlen

The greatest ever "science fiction" work. We didn't know what he was writing about then. We do now...

2. "The Moon and Sixpence" - Somerset Maughan

Near perfect writing about the life of the artist Paul Gauguin who left a comfortable existence to follow his heart, which was art. An amazing artist, he died alone and in poverty. But he did what we should all do: follow his heart.

3. "The End of the Affair" - Graham Greene

I re-read Greene regularly to remind myself about how writing should really be. The story of lost love, that society made impossible. The film is perfect too, type "Jealous of the Rain" into youtube and watch a three minute clip and perfect acting. The only film that instantly reduces me to blubber, i don't know why.

4. "Tuesdays with Morrie" - Mitch Albom.

Lovely thoughts about life from a dying old man.

5. "Eleven Minutes" - Paulo Coelho

Can anyone not find something that helps them in the writings of Coelho?

kurt vonnegut had an immediate impact on me.. i reccomend cats cradle or slaughterhouse 5.

life changing / eye opening non-fiction: the secret life of plants by peter tompkins and christopher bird, as well as supernature by lyall watson
id recommend supernature as a gift to your skeptic friends : )
its been updated a couple of times since it originally published ('supernature II', and 'beyond supernature'), which means there are many many original paperbacks circulating, i usually find a handful at any used book store, cheap.

great thread

Dr. Greer's book Disclosure is where it all started for me. in a universe filled with life, anything becomes possible. surely there are planets out there ruled by a few while most of the people on that planet have no idea...slave planets if you will. so why not ours? surely there are planets out there who's entire populations are being lied to about technology, science, physics, and the nature of life. so why not ours? it should be fairly easy to see where i'm going here. after reading this book, i realized that anything and everything is possible.
