Secrets and Mysteries of the World
Sylvia Browne
1401900852
January 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Everything from Atlantis to Bigfoot to the Bermuda Triangle is dusted off in this rambling rehash of pop mythology. Browne (Adventures of a Psychic) serves up perfunctory accounts of folktales, New Age origin myths and tabloid sensations, embellishing them with her desultory psychic vibes ("historians say that Stonehenge dates to about 3000 B.C., but I felt when I was there that it was more like 5000 B.C.") and the nattering asides—"Francine said there are forty-four universes"—of her "spirit guide." Influenced by Francine and theorist Erich Van Daniken, who believes astronauts existed in ancient times, Browne ascribes most unexplained phenomena to extraterrestrials from the Andromeda galaxy, who are responsible for the Pyramids (built with "anti-gravity rods"), crop circles (formed by aliens to "get...

From AudioFile
Sylvia Browne has become well-known as a psychic through her appearances on TV and a number of bestselling books. In this program Browne presents her interpretation of many aspects of the paranormal through explications of related terms. Jeanie Hackett works hard to give an animated narration of each segment without overdoing it. The audio format is not the obvious choice for a dictionary/encyclopedia. Nonetheless, Hackett's narration permits listening to the book as an introduction to the topic. Each term begins a new track, and the package contains an index of the terms by disc, a resource that may help to make this a useful reference.

The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
Miguel Ruiz
1878424319
January 1997
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Sit at the foot of a native elder and listen as great wisdom of days long past is passed down. In The Four Agreements shamanic teacher and healer Don Miguel Ruiz exposes self-limiting beliefs and presents a simple yet effective code of personal conduct learned from his Toltec ancestors. Full of grace and simple truth, this handsomely designed book makes a lovely gift for anyone making an elementary change in life, and it reads in a voice that you would expect from an indigenous shaman. The four agreements are these: Be impeccable with your word. Don't take anything personally. Don't make assumptions. Always do your best. It's the how and why one should do these things that make The Four Agreements worth reading and remembering. --P. Randall Cohan

The Secret Teachings of All Ages (Reader's Edition)
Manly P. Hall
1585422509
October 27, 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In 1928, a 20-something Renaissance man named Manly Hall self-published a vast encyclopedia of the occult, believing that "modern" ideas of progress and materialism were displacing more important and ancient modes of knowledge. Hall's text has become a classic reference, dizzying in its breadth: various chapters explore Rosicrucianism, Kabbalah, alchemy, cryptology, Tarot, pyramids, the Zodiac, Pythagorean philosophy, Masonry and gemology, among other topics. This affordably priced edition would be vastly improved by a new foreword, placing the work in some kind of historical and critical context and introducing readers to the basic contours of Hall's sweeping corpus. Instead, we have a disciple's adulatory 1975 foreword, which merely parrots the same themes of mystery and esoterica that are espoused in the book....

Ceremonial Magic & The Power of Evocation: A System of Personal Power
Joseph C. Lisiewski, et al

August 2004
Paperback
·
 
Gregory C. Itle, Ph.D.
Dr. Lisiewski's scientific approach to evocation gives the practitioner of magic the results he wants.

Book Description
For centuries, the ceremonial evocation of spiritual beings has been Magic's darkest corner. Reputed to fulfill the Magician's material desires, evocation has been the topic of the most famous Grimoires---the Grammars of Magic. From the Sworn Book of Honorius the Magician, to the Greater Key of Solomon and the Goetia; from the Grand Grimoire, to the complete treatise of the Lemegeton, all give direct, yet difficult, directions to the individual desiring to have the 'good life' in the here-and-now. But the simplest of Grimoires, the Heptameron of Peter de Abano, has escaped the attention of modern Ceremonialists. Its simplicity and power in summoning the...

Necronomicon
Donald Tyson
0738706272
Nov 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
First mentioned by H.P. Lovecraft in the 1920s and referred to throughout his fiction, the Necronomicon—a spurious book of occult knowledge—is so infamous that horror cognoscenti playfully speculate it might exist. Tyson (The Power of the Word) isn't the first writer to attempt a full "translation" of the forbidden text, but his may be the most comprehensive. After a brief history of the book's penning in the eighth century by the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred (eaten by an invisible nasty for his efforts), the text unfolds as a series of interrelated chapters that anatomize Lovecraft's monstrous entities (Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, etc.) in archaically musty prose, leavened with paraphrases of familiar passages from HPL's stories. Tyson embellishes this core material with the sort of astrologic and mystical...


Satanic Bible
Anton Szandor Lavey
0380015390
June 1989
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
Book Review
One might expect The Satanic Bible at least to offer a few prancing demons or a virgin sacrifice, but if you hopped this train expecting a tour of the house of horrors, you're on the wrong ride. Far from a manual for conquering the realms of earth, air, fire, and water, The Satanic Bible is Anton LaVey's manifesto of a new religion separate from the "traditional" Judeo-Christian definitions of Satanism. While LaVey rails against the deceit of the Christian church and white magicians, he busily weaves his own deceptions.

The Satanic Bible claims the heritage of a horde of evil deities--Bile', Dagon, Moloch, and Yao Tzin to name a few--but these ancient gods have no coherent connection between each other or to Satanism, except that all have been categorized by Christianity as "evil." Calling on these ancient names like a...



The Orion Prophecy
Patrick Geryl

July 2002
Paperback

Book Description
According to Mayan & Egyptian prophecy, the earth awaits a super catastrophe in 2012: its magnetic fields will completely reverse in one agonizing shift. Devastating earthquakes and tidal waves will completely destroy civilization as Europe and North America are pulled north to polar latitudes. Almost all the earth's population will perish. These predictions stem from the sophisticated astronomy of the Maya and Egyptians, descendants of the legendary original Atlanteans, whose island, in this theory, is now buried under the South Pole. The Atlanteans predicted the world-wide flood in 9792 BC. In 2012, according to several 10,000 year-old star codes, Venus, Orion and several other stars will take the same 'code-positions' as in 9792 BC. There is also a forgotten and massive labyrinth, created by the Old Egyptians, of...

Prophecy
Sylvia Browne
0451215206
July 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Celebrity psychic Sylvia Browne now offers her equally inspiring and forbidding prophecies in this discussion about the future of humanity. Browne pays homage to many famous prophets, including Nostradamus, Madame Helena Blavatsky, and Edgar Cayce. She then explains how prophets glean information about the future. Not all prophets should be trusted, she warns. Browne lists ways to recognize a "false prophet," such as recognizing that "any prophet who claims to be infallible is a false prophet." On this front, Browne claims that her own accuracy rate is 87 to 90 percent. "Only God can truthfully claim 100 percent." Many of Browne's predictions include good news, such as the end of common cold by about 2009 or 2010. In approximately 2025 all but a few of the world's religions will join "forces and funds" for the good of...


Mystery of the Aleph: Mathematics, the Kabbalah, and the Search for Infinity
Amir D. Aczel
0760777780
November 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
In the late 19th century, a brilliant mathematician languished in an asylum. His greatest accomplishment, the result of a series of leaps of insight, was his pioneering understanding of the nature of infinity. This is the story of Georg Cantor: how he came to his theories and the reverberations of his work, the consequences of which shape our world. Cantor's theory of the infinite is famous for its many seeming contradictions: for example, we can prove there are as many points on a line one inch long as on a line one mile long; we can also prove that in all time there are as many years as there are days. According to Cantor, infinite sets are equal. The mind-twisting, deeply philosophical work of Cantor has its roots in ancient Greek mathematics and Jewish numerology as found in the mystical work known as the...

The Perfect Medium : Photography and the Occult
Clement Cheroux, et al
0300111363
October 1, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Given its subject matter, it's no surprise that this massive volume is more than a little spooky—and this despite its eschewing cheap sensationalism in favor of a sober, art historical tack. Focusing primarily on images from the late Victorian era through the 1930s, the authors tackle three major categories in exploring the long relationship between the photograph and occult phenomena. The first, "Photographs of Spirits," explores the appearance of otherworldly beings and objects in photographic images. The second section, "Photographs of Fluids," reveals how the discovery of the effects of radiation on the photographic plate coincided with an explosion in the photography of radiances, auras and other "effluvia." Rife as they are with obvious trickery and manipulation of the film itself, these two sections...
