This does not mean, however, that we can go through our life journey with no bumps in the road. There are certain things we are meant to experience in order to learn the lessons those experiences teach us.

Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything

By Ervin Lazlo

An Excerpt
Before embarking on the search for an integral theory of everything, we should review the puzzles that are emerging in the pertinent fields of the sciences. We should be familiar with the unexpected and often strange findings that stress the current theories of the physical world, the living world, and the world of human consciousness, for only then can we understand the concepts that not only shed light on one or the other of these persistent domains of mystery, but also address the elements they have in common-and thus give us a new, more integral understanding of nature, mind, and universe.

By Darrin Owens

As a psychic who feels called to help others connect with their own inner psychic, my role is to encourage clients to deal with their challenges, not escape them.

Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality

By Dean Radin

Book Summary by Denise L. Dahl

The word "entanglement" was coined by one of the founders of quantum theory Erwin Schrodinger. It refers to the connections between separated particles that remain connected regardless of distance. These connections are instantaneous and operate outside the usual flow of time. This implies that seeing things as separate objects is in a sense an illusion created by our limited perception. Bioentanglement has to do with quantum connections with and among living systems. In fact, entanglement may extend to everything in the universe.

Developing the Psychic Profession

Commentary by Henry Reed

The Intuitive Career: How to Succeed as a Consultant, Reader, or Healer

By Cay Randall May

What can society expect from a professional intuitive? I think it is crucially important that psychics get it together to provide us with an answer. It would create the actual status of "profession" in the mind of society. What do psychics profess? We don’t know yet, but we’re waiting.

Were the Atlanteans Neanderthals? Atlantis and the Kingdom of the Neanderthals: 10,000 Years of Lost History

By Colin Wilson

A Commentary by Noble Augusta On:

I would never have connected Neanderthal cave men with stories about the technologically advanced civilization of Atlantis. By the time I had begun the third chapter, I was out of my seat, reaching for my handy desk-top globe and world atlas. To anyone else who reads this book, I might suggest they get their own globe out, too.

Gifts of Healing

By Hugh Lynn Cayce

We might say that when an individual obeys the spiritual law which he knows, he will be drawn into the very environment and opportunities which make possible his greatest spiritual growth. ... So, when the group raises the atomic vibrations that make for the positive forces which bring divine forces into action in a material plane; those forces of a destructive nature are broken down by the raising of the vibration.

Your Immortal Reality

By Gary Renard

Book Review by Sidney Goodwin

Atlantic University
Your Immortal Reality much like The Disappearance of the Universe attempts to explain A Course in Miracles from the "good old common man" approach. Gary says that he is just a common guy, not all that bright, who just happen to have his future self, who wrote the Gospel of Thomas in a previous life, and a partner appear as physical forms in his living room and give him sage advice on spiritual principles to living in everyday life. Their banter adds color and some humor to the exchange that presses the message of A Course in Miracles that forgiveness is the key to awaken us from the dream of this world.

The Emotional Heart: The heart as an organ of perception and communication

By Stephen Harrod Buhner

A chapter excerpted from his book:
The Secret Teachings of Plants: The Intelligence of the Heart in the Direct Perception of Nature
The tendency for heart cells to entrain with one another, merely because of the proximity of their electromagnetic fields, extends to any electromagnetic field that comes into contact with them. Just as the electromagnetic fields of two heart cells cause them to begin beating or oscillating in unison, when the electromagnetic fields of two hearts come together, they also begin to oscillate or entrain to each other. But this phenomenon extends even further.

Plants and Their Spiritual Nature

An excerpt from

Aromatherapy for the Soul: Healing the Spirit wth Fragrance and Essential Oils

By Valerie Ann Worwood

Having a conversation with a tree might seem like a strange thing to do, especially when you live in a large city, a long way away from trees. But when actually out among them, it seems like the most natural thing in the world to do. I can fully understand why traditional Native Americans, when planning to cut down a tree to make a totem pole or boat, asked permission and gave thanks directly to the tree making the sacrifice.

The Power of Awareness

An excerpt from

The Mandala of Being: Discovering the Power of Awareness

By Richard Moss, M.D.

Any story you tell yourself about who you are, any belief you have, any feeling you are aware of, is only an object of your larger consciousness. You, in your essence, are always something that experiences all these and remains more complete than any of them. When you realize that you are inherently larger than any feeling that enters your awareness, this very awareness will change the feeling, and it will release its grip on you.

By Laurie Nadel, Ph.D.

An Excerpt from her book:
Sixth Sense: Unlocking Your Ultimate Mind Power.
The term "new science" was first introduced in 1964 by the late Nobel neuroscientist Dr. Roger Sperry (1913-1994).

RELIGIOUS LITERACY: What Every American Needs to Know

By Stephen Prothero

Books Summary by Rosemary Roberts

Americans are feeling outnumbered and threatened, not so much by foreign terrorists but by their fellow Americans. An atmosphere of faith-based paranoia permeates a portion of our cultural climate. Unlike the Europeans, whose educations have included a thorough steeping in religious studies, we do not -- cannot -- view religion objectively. Instead, we clutch our Bibles to our bosoms and with varying degrees of emotional fervor, proclaiming ourselves "a religious nation."


By Alan Watts

An excerpt from his autobiography:

In My Own Way

The power of something so apparently simple-and so seemingly absurd-as mantra- and om-chanting is that it fosters a relaxed concentration on pure sound, as distinct from words, ideas, and abstractions, and thus brings attention to bear on reality itself.

Far Journeys

Ronald Russell

An excerpt from:

The Journey of Robert Monroe: From Out of Body Explorere to Consciousness Pioneer

The question of proof no longer concerned him and he had lost interest in taking part in controlled tests. Also, he found it had become very easy for him to move into the out-of-body state. Refreshed after three or four hours of sleep, he was ready to slip out, as it were, but what was there to do? Everyone else was asleep and he saw no point in purposelessly drifting around.

The Spiritual Journey in 21st Century America

Inwardly and in freedom, we must choose to come together.

Relationships: How Are You Connected?

By Christian de Quincey

An excerpt from:

Yet so many of us spend a lot of our precious time and money trying to find relationships, or the perfect one. But after some reflection and clear thinking we come to recognize a basic, simple fact: We are always in relationship ... of some kind. It's part of the welcome package we get on arrival into this world. Every one of us—no exceptions—gets the basic package: a body, a mind, and relationships.

Renaissance II: Rebirth in the New Clear Age

By Donn O'Connor

A summary by the author

Edgar Cayce, a dedicated Christian, was somewhat dismayed to learn that he had, while in a self-induced trance state, made a statement referring to reincarnation, since he had considered the concept to be "the work of the Devil." Such would be a normal reaction, since it is not commonly known that Christianity's theological foundation, rather than having been based on sacred Hebrew documents and the oral teachings of Jesus, was established principally on the philosophy of Plato, and reincarnation represented the very foundation of Plato's teaching.

The Nine Powers of Dreaming

By Robert Moss

An excerpt from:
The Three "Only" Things

The Reflecting Self: Would We Lose Our Souls in a World Without Animals?

By Gary Kowalkski

My own children remind me that becoming human is a continuous unfolding. One evening my son was playing with his toys in the tub when suddenly something caught his eye. Reflected in the chrome fixture encircling the faucet was his own image. With a happy smile of recognition, he called out his name, "Noah."


By John Welshons

Based on his book, When Prayers Aren't Answered
Where is God when tragedy strikes? When events happen that break our hearts? When human beings inflict cruelty and suffering on one another? These and similar questions form the basis of nearly every quest for spiritual understanding, and nearly every individual crisis in faith.

By Graham Phillips

Commentary by Noble Augusta

Imagine what it would be like for a small town of fifty to a hundred people to host Woodstock, every day for two thousand years with no reason for anyone, at any time, to feel the need for town safety. Let your mind get around a kind of Eden where everyone got along and folks lived in harmony with each other. Imagine this utopia is in every place of human habitation around the globe. OK, imagine something like Haley's comet streaking across the sky. Everyone would turn out to watch a magnificent star together.

Visionary experiences are forcing us to think in new ways, which may be the purpose of these events, leading humanity to "modify our basic ideas of how reality works." They are not designed to control us, but to confound us. Extraordinary experiences loosen the chains of fixed ideas and make room for new ones. Before a new system can be put in place, the old system must be deconstructed and abandoned.

Summary and Commentary By Jane Marks, Ph.D.

This book has valuable information for the mind on a quest for eternal questions. Questions like, “Why is there a snake in the garden of Eden and why is there a two-way world of good and evil?  How do you explain pathology that is so out of proportion, like the holocaust and both World Wars?”  


Mary squirmed in her chair as she continued, “I just don’t know what is wrong with me. Why can’t I just do it? I feel stressed all the time when I’m not writing. ‘I should be writing’, I say to myself, but I don’t.
