Ascended Master Teachings-Classic

Any book by Alice Bailey. My favorite work is “The Unfinished Autobiography” which tells of Alice Bailey’s work and discipleship with the Ascended Masters. The best bet is to order any of her books through your local bookstore, you can also order on the web at: Lucis Publishing Company

“Unveiled Mysteries” and “The Magic Presence,” by Godfre Ray King. Saint Germain Foundation, Saint Germain Press, Inc. 1120 Stonehedge Drive, Schaumburg, Illinois, 60194. (800) 662-2800. Also available through Amazon.

”The Seven Beloved Archangels Speak” and “The Seven Mighty Elohim Speak,” by Thomas Printz. Received in the 1950’s by the messenger Geraldine Innocenti. This work was originally published by The Bridge To Freedom and can now be acquired by ordering through Ascended Master Teaching Foundation.

”Law Of Life,” Book 1 & 2 by A.D.K Luk. These two books are comprehensive source books regarding Ascended Master teachings and a good introduction to the Ascended Masters, Archangels and Cosmic Beings. They are very clear and easy to understand. A.D.K. Luk Publications, P.O. Box 530035 St. Petersburg, Florida, 33747.

”Gnosis & The Law,” by Tellis S. Papastravro. A wonderful anthology of Ascended Master lore. Published and distributed by Group Avatar, P.O. Box 41505, Tucson, AZ 85717.

Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East,” by Baird T. Spalding. This New Age classic boxed set can generally be found in any bookstore. (The first five books are in this set.) Volume Six was made available in 1995 and is an interesting read. Available through DeVorss & Company, P.O. Box 550, Marina del Rey, CA. 90294.

Philosophy
”The Power of Myth,” by Joseph Campbell with Bill Moyer. When I first read this book I could not put it down and I have since lent it out many times to friends. It is a profound interview with Joseph Campbell and is richly laden with his vivid stories and the magic of metaphor. Available at Amazon.

Any book by Manly P. Hall. My favorite is “The Secret Teachings Of All Ages,” and is subtitled as “An encyclopedic outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Quabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy”. For lovers of the work of Saint Germain, “Most Holy Trinosophia” is said to be the only known mystical writing of the Comte de St. Germain. Both are available though: The Philosophical Research Society, Inc., 3810 Los Feliz Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027.

Prophecy
”Hotevilla” and “The Hopi Survival Kit,” by Thomas Mails. This retired Lutheran Minister has written and illustrated eleven other books on Native American history that are outstanding, but these two books should be read, re-read, and then passed on to friends and relatives for their perusal. This is one of the most concise and complete teachings on prophecy. Available at Amazon.

Conscious Creation
”Ten Thousand Whispers” and “The Wizards of Consciousness,” by Lynda Madden Dahl. You will love these books and are based upon the consciousness expanding work of Jane Roberts (Channel for Seth) and Robert Butts. After I tell a friend to buy the books they always call back with, “Wow, I just love those books. They’ve changed my life!” The first chapter is called, “The 180 Degree Turn.” Believe me; the material presented in these two books is great! Available through Amazon.

Soul Groups and Reincarnation
“Journey of Souls,” and “Destiny of Souls,” by Dr. Michael Newton. Much of what is presented in Dr. Newton’s second book, “Destiny of Souls,” is fundamental to Ascended Masters Teachings, but read the first book, “Journey of Souls,” to understand the language and profound research on the reincarnation process, death, the after-life (devachan), and rebirth. I especially enjoyed the descriptions of various soul-groups, and their unique purposes on Earth. Available at Amazon. If, after reading, you would like to explore the time period known as “Life between Lives,” (the time period in-between lifetimes) with an LBL session, I can personally recommend Linda Gabriel, MFA, Los Angles, CA.

Spoken Word
The Science of the Spoken Word,” by Mark and Elizabeth Prophet. Every student of the Ascended Masters should read this body of information. This work with the violet flame (spiritual fire) is the most complete and concise teaching available. The cassettes are a great accompaniment to the book and are especially helpful. Mark Prophet’s western version of the eastern mantra is indelible. Published by Summit University Press and through Amazon.

Prediction
”Feng Shui, The Ancient Wisdom Of Harmonious Living For Modern Times,” by Eva Wong. This is one of the best books I have read on this very popular subject. I have had many demonstrations using the techniques taught in this book. Published by and available through Shambhala Publications.

Ancient Hindu Astrology for the Modern Western Astrologer,” by James T. Braha. My copy of this book is so dog eared, underlined and relined I don’t dare lend it out and I consider it much, much too sacred. So buy your own, you won’t regret it. I have read James’ two other books on Hindu and Western Astrology, but this is the best place to start. Published by Hermetician Press, P.O. Box 1961, Hollywood, FL 33022. This book is available at James’ website and at Amazon.

Shapeshifting
“Shapeshifting: Techniques for Global and Personal Transformation,” by John Perkins. John Perkins has studied with indigenous shamans from all over the world and shares his insights and experiences with this ancient technique. I like the idea of John’s approach to Shapeshifting as a tool that can be used to transform societies and governments, as well as personal transformation. Read this book before you read, “Confessions of an Economic Hit-Man,” also written by John, and is an autobiographic exposure of his former professional life as a chief economist at a Boston consulting firm. Available at Amazon.

Tarot
”Qabalistic Tarot,” by Robert Wang. A friend gave me this book and unfortunately it sat on my shelf for several years. That was my mistake! This book is indeed provocative and gives great depth into the philosophical nature and meaning of Tarot symbology. Published by Samuel Weiser, and available at Amazon.

Earth Changes
”Earth In Upheaval,” by Immanuel Velikovsky. This book gives some of the basics of cataclysmic geology and explains how Darwinism and The Law Of Uniformity took hold in scientific thinking. Immanuel Velikovsky was a good friend of Einstein and a rebel in his day. My copy is a Pocket paperback. You might be able to find a copy at a used bookstore as the first original version was published in 1955. In not, order at your local bookstore.

“Edgar Cayce Psychic Reading Map.” For many years I heard of the famed, “Edgar Cayce Earth Changes Maps,” but could never locate them! The search is over. Geologist William Hutton has produced a color map based on interpretations from the Edgar Cayce Psychic Readings and the book he has authored, “Earth’s Catastrophic Past and Future – A Scientific Analysis of Information Channeled by Edgar Cayce.” While this US map does not specifically show new coastlines, it is divided into color areas that relate to the Edgar Cayce prophecies channeled from Archangel Halaliel regarding safety lands, post-pole shift agricultural areas, and areas subject to earthquake. Hutton offers another map that I found even more interesting. “The Earth after Pole-Shift,” depicts the new world immediately after a one-degree shift of the North Pole to 89° N., 58° W. What I found so fascinating about this map was its incredibly similarity to the I AM America Freedom Star World Map (specifically South America and Russa.) Get both of the Hutton maps. On the back of each map are numerous Edgar Cayce prophecies that are worth knowing and correlate to many of the I AM America Prophecies. Purchase at: Hutton Commentaries

Eastern Spirituality
The Second Coming of Christ-the Resurrection of the Christ within You,” by Paramahansa Yogananda. My favorite book by Yogananda is the best-seller, “Autobiography of a Yogi,” but this two-volume set is perhaps one of his most important works. Published in 2004, this revelatory commentary on the teachings of Jesus shows the important correlations of Christianity to Hinduism and Buddhism. Also included in this masterpiece are beautiful full color illustrations of Jesus by the famous artist Heinrich Hofmann, in fact it is worth owning just to see this wondrous art! Available at Amazon, and through the Self-Realization Foundation.
