The Wheel of Time is a series that this author worked on almost his whole life. He does an amazing job bringing his characters to life. There is a movie in the works by Amazon that's based on this series. There is lots of magic in the book and I'm thinking it's going to be interesting visually to watch.

My favorite book would have to include a series called THE WHEEL OF TIME. I didn't want to read it because it isn't my normal read and it's not just one book but a series. My son had been wanting me to read it so for a Christmas gift he bought the entire series one kindle book at a time just to get me to read it. It took me almost a year to read the whole series but I was hooked as soon as I read the first book. There is also a good story about the author, Robert Jordan. He actually died before finishing. Great read, highly recommend it.

Hi, I don't know if it would qualify as my favorite, but I am currently reading the Muirwood series by Jeff Wheeler and would heartily recommend it!

Hi. Don't know that I have a favorite book right now. I have just started re-reading the Laws of Attraction. I tried to read it many years ago and couldn't wrap my head around it. For some reason now feels like the right time to begin again.

There are some great books here that i'm going to have to track down to read.

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves-slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.

I know this sounds silly but I like a children's book called "The Day the Crayons Quit" by Drew Daywalt. All the crayons in a box write a letter to their owner complaining about his coloring....red is always used for a fire truck; blue is always sky; brown is always dirt; white feels like what's the point, etc. In the end the kid draws and colors a big mural, but he uses all the colors in a different way. It's just a cool concept for a kid's book.

My favourite book is The Book of Flying by Keith Miller. As far as I can find on the internet it's the only book by Keith Miller.

I love this book because it is fantastically written, the story is absolutely gripping, and the main reason I love this book is because it's the type of book I could read 100 times and learn something new about myself each and every time I read it.

It is so fantastic!

I just finished reading "The Girl with No Name" - here is a link to the interview with the woman who grew up with monkeys in Columbia. www.cbc.ca/news/arts/story/2013/04/2
9/
marina-chapman-book.html


She was abducted around the age of 4 or 5yrs, and dropped in the jungle when the abductors were running away. She lived with the monkeys for years, eventually saw humans, followed them and showed herself. She lived on the streets, was a child slave and eventually escaped to safety. The story is incredible and I highly recommend it.

Tom - your "ramblings" are most interesting. I think much of our experiences with various religions depends greatly on the openness of the minds of the members. I have been exposed to various religions having been raised Roman Catholic by a Methodist mother who was something of a student of religions. My youngest has recently joined a Byzantine Catholic church and chose Mary of Egypt as her patron saint. As such, I have delved back into reading more about religion in general and Catholicism specifically. Between you and others here, I think those who believe our "gifts" to be evil have not actually understood much of what the bible teaches us.

I just read the last 25 or so posts on this topic. The topic has drifted somewhat which is more interesting than a mere posting of "my fav book is..." For those who might be interested or who correctly feel disenfranchised by Christianity in general or Catholics in particular, there is still hope and a place for us who love the spiritual world as well as our roots.

Specifically, there is a tremendous amount of mystical literature from the saints, early mystic fathers, and the holy men and women who forged the christian religion and who are venerated by the Catholic church. Contrary to popular understandings, many christian heros actively engaged in many varieties of what St. Paul called "gifts of the spirit" which he described as different among different people. He also said that all gifts of the spirit are important to the body of the church. He defined the church as a community of believers. Some fav. mystical writers include John of the Cross, Gregory Palamas, Origen, and Merton. These writers spoke from their hearts, used spiritual gifts, and they were acutely attentive to spiritual power as it unfolded in unexpected and mysterious ways.

It is popular among some wiccans or those who have unique spiritual gifts to believe that the Catholic church, for example, is their enemy. Maybe that is true? Maybe that is the experience? Yet, I prefer to believe that weather you are Catholic or a wiccan and that you asking, for example, for the intercession from the archangel Michael, that Michael does not make a distinction or penalize the believer. There is room in the Catholic church for a variety of believers more diverse than one could even imagine. Saint Paul teaches that all spiritual gifts come from nature and the good Ground of all Creation.

It was once said that religion in all its forms is an anonymous expression of a great truth. Therefore, we can participate in all forms of religion knowing that the great truth is the magnet for all. There are tons of great authors like Merce Eliade and Raimundo Panikkar who drip with love for the spiritual world and who have reconciled delight in many religions. What does this have to do with the topic or Spark? I do not know. At this point I am just rambling ;)

My fav book? I have many, but Watership Down has always appealed to me as a perfect story archetype and metaphor for the adventure of life.

I am getting that you need to put the book down for now and once it jumps out at you, pick it up and read it again. Plus ask the angels to help you release the blocks you have that would keep you from understanding. I am getting maybe family energy. THANK YOU for having the courage and speaking up, I put you up high and honor you for just saying this.

Bless you Janice, the first step is speaking up. WOW, I am so proud of you!

Hi Jetta,

I just finished reading "Talking to Heaven" and I really liked it.

I have tried to read "You Are Psychic" and it's like a block comes up... it doesn't make sense to me. Do you have any suggestions so I can "unblock" it and therefore understand it?

Thanks,

Janice

Jetta, I had a hard time reading the Bible, too. I chose the "Worldwide English Edition" found here:

http://www.biblegateway.com/versions/Wor
ld-English-Bible-WEB/

You can read a chapter a day (using their chart) if you would like. This version of the New Testament was written for people who have English as a second language, but I found it had just the ease I needed to understand its rich messages.

Loads of Love!!!

Hi Jetta,

I've read the Bible from front to back and there are magnificent truths in there, and then there are places where I think men have decided to add in things of their own. Every time I read a truth my heart would soar and my mind would open up. It is an excellent and holy book overall.

Although Paul wrote some beautiful things (I think he copied from Timothy when he wrote nice things) most of his writings I find untrue.

I like what Jesus preached:

Love God. Love others as yourself. Everything else falls under these two commandments.

Cool, eh?

Loads of Love!!!

Hi Irish,

I think the missing books you are referring to are the gnostics. Here is a site that not only names the missing books, but also has them printed online:

Enjoy!

Me too Ang, I would like to read them as well. Do they still exist?

EVERYONE is/was psychic. The churches only want to CONTROL you and be in charge of you/your money and life. God/Sprit is inside each of us. that is where the church is. Do not need to go to a building for blessings. We can get them ourselves. I have been so hurt by all the brainwashing of my church. But they do have their purpose. It did give me a few people who loved me and I loved them and I met my first hubby there too.

I have a really hard time reading the bible, they just hard to understand and when I have been there during Jesus's time, I can't agree on some or alot of it. All your answers are inside YOU.

Witchcraft is just the fear that man was afraid of being better than themselves. it all was FEAR that they burned the spiritual women on the steaks/crosses. I was one of them too.

Words are just that WORDS. not what the real things is.

I love the saying....

THE MIND THINGS, INTUITION FEELS!!

I agree with that. The Bible is all about interpretation and in the hands of a lot of people who have the ability to influence others to their way of thinking. Being gifted allows you to see all the sides - so our truths may be a little off from the established norm.

I would like to read the missing books - I had a list of them at one time - and I would like to know why they were deemed unimportant.

The Bible is also filled with numbers, which all have meaning of their own.

The more I've been thinking about it, the more I see the Bible as being filled with psychic happenings.

Peter had a vision that helped him to know he could eat what the gentiles ate.

Two disciples saw Jesus with Moses and Elijah (both dead at the time, but living in the heaven dimension) and offered to build tents for them to stay in.

Mary heard from an angel she was going to have a son and call him Jesus.

Jesus said John was Elijah (reincarnation).

The 11 disciples (after Judas killed himself) used sticks to determine God's will on who should be the 12th disciple (divination).

So, the dogma of the church is not what the truth of the Bible is!

Loads of Love!

Janice - Different religions - different beliefs. What is important is what your belief is about God and how you balance between your beliefs and God or Christ and Christianity. I converted to Catholicism years ago and have now left the church. There is no room for my gifts within the Catholic church. There is a Christian church in a neighboring town whose congregation is primarily spiritually gifted people. I have been asked to attend; however, it's a quite a drive for me and I haven't gone. Their foundation is Christianity and believe our gifts are of God.

I enjoy the Wiccan ways. Wiccan is relatively new, but there are older versions that do not deal with the witchcraft side - that believe in the Lord and the Lady (which is essentially the moon and the earth), but could also mean Jesus and Mary. And the lessons there are respect for our surroundings and the people who share our space.

While I know nothing of the Jewish religion, I know some do not believe that Jesus has been born yet, and there is another group that refer to themselves as Jews for Jesus.

Southern Methodists and Southern Baptists would burn you at the stake as a witch for outwardly practicing a gift (I was raise in that atmosphere). My parents put a stop to my "sharing" and my "invisible friends" when I was 3 - making it clear that people would think I was mentally ill and it would reflect badly on them as parents. So I was a closet psychic until about a decade ago.

I have a strong faith in a higher power, but very little faith in organized religion. And I do my best to walk what is called a Christian path - sometimes I screw up, but I find my way back. I am not saying religion is wrong - it was wrong for me. I am now back in balance and happier. Bottom line is you have to be true to yourself to be happy.

I think much would depend on if you are reading a Protestant bible or a Catholic/Orthodox bible.

Check out this link orthodoxwiki.org/Mary_of_Egypt . It talks about Mary of Egypt "demonstrating her gift of clairvoyance" but not as a bad thing. I think there are many misconceptions touted in today's religion about certain abilities because they scare most people.

I received my two library books today. I don't know why I wrote down that "You Are Psychic" was one of the books I found at the library. It was not. But, it was the one you recommended I read first. Soooo.... I searched and found "You Are Psychic" from amazon and decided to buy it. I hope it's worth it! Does being psychic go along with being spiritually connected to God? I've been taught that being psychic is warned of in the Bible as something "not cool" as it is a part of "witchcraft".

How do you see it, Jetta? Does being psychic work hand in hand with being a Christian, or a Baha'i, or a Jew, or is it too different to work together with divine realities?

Searching for truths here!

Loads of Love,

Janice

My favourite book is from childhood but is an adult book. I've read it a dozen times and each time, get something different from it. How Green Was My Valley, Richard Llewellyn. It was written in 1939.

"At the turn of the century in a Welsh mining village, the Morgans (he stern, she gentle) raise coal-mining sons and hope their youngest will find a better life."

I'm sure as a child I read it in bits and didn't quite get it all. I remember reading it again as a teen and my friends thinking how odd I was. It is a thick book and there are many Welsh words, plus it's written in an older style, so most of my friends weren't into it. Read it many times as an adult. It's a book my father loved and he shared it with me. We still share books. :)

I don't think I have a favorite but I also haven't done much book reading on this subject in many years. I've been reading more about gardening, canning and cooking lately, but I'm following the thread to keep access to the list.

Sweet Julie, I got a bad feeling about that book as I was reading your words. It will only confuse you. Please can you get the one YOU ARE PSYCHIC BY Debra Katz that will help you much more and easy to understand. Go with your gut feeling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

listen to what you said/feel. You can go back to that book later but not right now. You are in a place of absorbing and looking for information. That book although I have not read it, it feels like it would bring you down.

Ask yourself will it bring me closer to my true self or away from my true self/heart?

Thank you for that great list of books. Im reading Infinite quest by John Edwards. He is all over the place in his writing. Im a quarter of the way in and haven't learned a thing. Honestly not sure he wants anyone to completely get it. I love John but I think his fears got in the way of writing this book. He mentions a lot that there are a lot of frauds out there and he doesn't want anyone taking his information and using it to hurt people.

This is my first book about psychic abilities....after all these years I have decided its time to learn about my gift. I am excited to read some of your choices.

Start your day with a smile, calmness of mind, coolness of emotion and a heart filled with gratitude.

My fave book is The Body is the Barometer of The Soul : by Annette Noontil Best to buy it from her website, link here :-

www.annettenoontil.com/

All up for US it's $34.45 (That includes postage)
All up for Aussie it's $26.00
This is all about finding out WHY you are suffering from which ailment....It's a good general reference book, but I read it one chapter at a time (1 per week) to let it sink in..lol...
Better than Louise L Hay's book , You Can Heal Your Life, which is a great companion book to it...

Second book is Sweet Poison : The Quit Plan by David Gillespie widely available at on line book stores, Amazon have it here :-

3155%2Ck%3Adavid+gillespie


Currently they only have it as a Kindle for $14.59 US

My other fave books are both Crystal books, The Book of Stones, by Judy Hall, and my all time fave book, The Book of Stones, by Robert Simmons & Naisha Ahsian....it's the best book on Crystals you can ever buy....

Enjoy....Love & Light
