Hi All

Thought it would be nice to ask everyone which writers or teachers they have found most helpful and authentic for spiritual realisation. Also, how that person helped?

Peace and love to you all
Jnanic

Bryan (Lordmerc) here on SB has been very helpful for me as he assisted me during my "Awakening your Lightbody" CD-course. He is a reiki master and teaches meditation. Seek out his website if you are interested. www.firstlight.me.uk

So was Eckhart Tolle's book "The Power of Now" which helped me to focus on what is rather than dwelling in the past or hoping for the future.

I also learned a healing modality which I can very much recommend as it is easy to learn and can be learned only from reading the book. "The Reconnection - Heal others, Heal yourself" by Dr. Eric Pearl.

Right now I am very inspired by the book The Secret everybody is talking about, too.



Namasté,
Stefanie

Many thanks Stefanie. I'll look into those.

Personally, I'm very much more focused into accepting everything as it is, in a way I didn't do before but which Eckhart suggests. I'm finding it so very fruitful, which I know you understand very well indeed and which I appreciate in the posts you write.

Peace and love

spiritual teachers, my mother, my aunt wanda, my grandmother. They taught me about being pyschic from early childhood when I presented my abilities. They were honest with me and prepared me for ridicule and bigotry, which have helped me a lot. Writers, Mysti Guymon, she isnt famous yet. Also, anything published by Llewellyn. Love, carolyn

I also very much enjoyed "The Power of Now" by Tolle.
Have ever read "Be Here Now" by Ram Dass? It is one of my favorites also, and the writing is very lively.
These books have helped me enjoy the present without anxious dependence on the future or dwelling on the past.
I also found a free ebook that reminds me a lot of these books. It is called "The Present" by an anonymous author. It is definitely the book that has had the most impact on my life. You can find it at this link:
Truth Contest

Hope that helps!

After Daje's suggestion, I read the Reconnection by Eric Pearl..very good. I also took Bryan Lord Merc's Awakening the Light Body class via a webcam and internet as he teaches across the pond...it was extremely helpful in making a connection to my guide and helping me find the off button for my mental body while trying to meditate...I had great difficulty prior to taking this class.

Hi guys! I'm doing readings in a metaphysical bookstore! It's like being at a giant buffet! I have lists and lists of the authors and books I want to taste! Any more suggestions? I loved "The Shack" and "Five People You Meet In Heaven" but the book that is dog-eared now from constant use is "Ask and It is Given" by the Hicks. I also find CDs to be great tools, especially for guided meditation. I'm not partial to Doreen Virtue's books (sorry to her..she's wonderful..just being honest about what resonates with me), but I love the CD's she created and listen to "Manifesting With Angels" and the "Chakra Clearing" CD over and over. Since I do work contacting the other side, I enjoyed books from Sonia Choquette, especially "Ask Your Guides", and Concetta Bertoldi's "Do Dead People Watch You Shower" because I found many experiences they shared to be similar to what I've learned with Ole. Books that make me laugh and are REAL seem to help me the most as they raise my vibration and feel good, while at the same time absorbing the gift of the lesson.
Please share your favorites! What about you Gerrit? Serious reading or lighthearted lessons?
Have a nice day, y'all!

Karla

I have an aversion to almost anything that becomes very popular. That is why e.g. I have never read any Conversations with God or any Deepak Chopra book.
Also, once I have read 2 books of an author I usually find very little new in subsequent books.
Specifically, although Tolle's "Power of Now" was OK, I have found "A New Earth" to cold, clinical, and I never finished it.
Recently I read:
Quantum Enigma (loaned to a friend and too lazy to look up the authors)
The Healing Promise of Qi (R. Jahnke)
The Yoga of Sound (P. Russil)
The Way of Qigong (K. Cohen)
The Tibetan Book Of the Dead (First Complete translation, Penguin books, various authors)
The book that really blew my mind a while back is "River of Fire, River of Water" (Taitetsu Unno)

If you want to read something really out of this world read anything from Dr. Zhi Gang Sha. He writes about seemingly totally whacko stuff/practices - but I can tell you, it works!
Most stuff from Mantak Chia is quite good as long as he stays away from topics connected with physical sex and sexuality.

Mmm, I think the 'conversation with god' books started it for me. And 'God loves fun' by shri shri ravi shankar was helpfull too. Although right now I do not feel a lot of connection anymore with those.
I like Adyashanti and Eckhart Tolle, especially Eckhart right now.

Deepak Chopra is somehow difficult for me to connect with, not sure why.
