Light Therapies: A Complete Guide to the Healing Power of Light

By Anadi Martel

ISBN-13: 978-1-62055-729-7 (Healing Arts Press, 2018)

This is probably one of the most up-to-date books on a very old, if not ancient, form of healing. Tesla once said, “If you want to understand the universe, look at it as energy and frequency.” Edgar Cayce, “The Sleeping Prophet,” said the future of medicine will have to do with light and sound.” Being the publisher of a health magazine I have a pretty good insight into the wave of elevated consciousness that’s sweeping over this planet and it’s pushing all of us into a better understanding of what it means to be healthy and to stay healthy.

Power Places and the Master Builders of Antiquity: Unexplained Mysteries of the Past

By Frank Joseph

ISBN-13: 978-1-59143-313-2 (Bear & Company, 2018)

When we think of ancient mysteries we normally think of Egypt and the Sumerian cultures, but when you read this book you start to realize something very profound … the further back in time you go the more you start to see that at one time, everything was connected on every continent, even the Americas. My favorite section was “The Soul of Matter” because it links everything with consciousness. History is being rewritten right before our very eyes.

Slow Sex: The Path to Fulfilling and Sustainable Sexuality

By Diana Richardson

ISBN-13: 978-1-59477-367-9 (Destiny Books, 2011)

This book was not what I expected but it turned out to be exactly what I was searching for. Most books on sex have to do with “doing” and less with the state of “being.” There are various ways to attain that state we are all searching for; one is applying the techniques that lead to physical fulfillment, but this book takes you down the road of being aware on subtle levels and “letting” your body awake to its natural state of arousal, a much more fulfilling and conscious state in which the neurochemistry of attraction plays a role along with the emotions of love.

Source Code Meditation: Hacking Evolution through Higher Brain Activation

By Dr. Michael Cotton

ISBN-13: 978-1-84409-747-0 (Findhorn Press, 2018)

This book will accomplish something almost sacred. As William Blake said, “If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite.” So much of what we “think” we are is determined by our reptilian brains, which keeps us on lower conscious levels of awareness. This book adds a dimension to my own understanding that if we live in a holographic simulation, an idea that many scientists lean toward, then tapping into the source code is something to consider when we journey through the inner sanctums of our minds seeking deeper meditative experiences.

Spiral Up: 127 Options to Be Your Best Right Now

By Chloe Faith Wordsworth

ISBN-13: 978-1-93771-000-2 (Resonance Publishing, 2014)

This book combines ancient wisdom for well-being from a diverse array of sources and compiles it all into one substantial resource. It encompasses six parts, including process, sound, color and light, movement, breath, energy contacts, and essential oils. Each section contains 15-30 exercises. For example, the calming crossovers are helpful when stressed out about work, the sympathetic nervous system balancing is great for falling asleep, and the steam engine breath is amazing for digestion. There are also practical instructions for release of negative attitudes and beliefs. The instructions are clear and simple enough that anyone can use the exercises. The book empowers the readers to do significant healing on their own without the help of a practitioner.

The Metaphysical World of Isaac Newton: Alchemy, Prophecy, and the Search for Lost Knowledge

By John Chambers

ISBN-13: 978-1-62055-204-9 (Destiny Books, 2018)

All I can say is that it’s about time we start looking at how academia has traditionally divorced our greatest thinkers from spirituality and metaphysics. This book shows a much deeper insight into not only “what” Isaac Newton thought, but “why and how” he arrived at some of his perceptions of our physical world. Einstein once said, “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind,” and this well-written and researched book portrays that truth in a way that will engage you from beginning to end.
