This question is marked "community wiki".

I'd like to know what spiritual "materials" really made a difference in your life. Actually you don't have to limit your answer to books and movies. You can also list an audio program, a spiritual practice, a teacher you met...maybe your life was profoundly influenced by something as simple as short quote. And maybe some experience made a significant spiritual impact on you.

Please, don't make a long list of all your "favorite" books/movies/etc. Only share the ones that really turned your life around.

My journey of personal development began years ago with Wayne Dyer's audio program "How to be a NLP" (NLP=non-limit person). I can still remember listening to each part of the program many many times, thinking to myself: "Wow, this is what life could be like". It really opened my mind to new possibilities.

I love all of Dyer's work. I am currently practicing the meditations from his book "Manifest your destiny" and they are altering my reality yet again.

My list wouldn't be complete without The Message of a Master.

Last but not least encountering and practicing Buddhism was very important to me and will continue to influence me in the future.

I would like to read books on buddhism. Can you recommend one?

(07 Oct '09, 11:53) Celine

I'm glad you like the question, John. Celine, there are a lot of books on Buddhism. However Buddhism cannot be studied that way, as books are static and can't take your personal needs, the constant changes in the world and so on into account. Only an experienced teacher can. If you want the basics you don't need a book. All is available on the internet. For example here (the school I am following): I'd recommend reading Buddha's life, The Four Noble Truths, The Three Ways, Karma, Rebirth, Methods and so on.

(07 Oct '09, 17:42) Toshiro

Thanks Toshiro ...

(08 Oct '09, 01:23) Celine

How are you? This response is very late, but I love this question. I have always wondered the same thing, because people often give self help books, and spiritual, books great ratings, and talk about how good they were, but I always wondered did they actually affect your life besides just being a good read. So thank you for asking this, it's also opened me up to some new books that people have posted that I plan on reading that I never knew about before.

I have to credit many authors for where I am on my spiritual journey. But the ones that had the greatest impact were: Conversations with God by Neal Donald Walsh and "The Secret". I just want to point out though that how much a particular book impacts on us depends on where we are on the spiritual path. Meaning that if the knowledge comes too soon you may not really appreciate it or recognize the significance. I remember the first time a colleague loaned me a book entitled "Sidharta" by Herman Hess I thought she was kind of weird but years later when I read the book I recognized the power of it and the lessons being taught.

Hi Toshiro, there a few books that really turned my world inside out and opened my consciousness up to the Universe. 'Seth Speaks' and 'The Nature of Personal Reality' by Jane Roberts. 'Many Lives Many Masters' by Dr Brian Weiss. I think when you have the ?'s inside of you then the answers follow as surely as the ?'s arise. There are others, however these are my favourites (-: Thanks.

During my childhood the book that influenced and created the greatest impact in my life was the Bible, the King James version and it still is. However, I am overwhelmed by metaphysical teachings and practices,which have brought me closer to the God of my being and cause me to recognise that all humans are created by God and each of us are an extension of another. Some of the books that improve my understanding metaphysically and I enjoy reading are:Living Science of the mind by Ernest Holmes, Secret of the Ages by Robert Collier,The Power of the Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy,Your invisible Power by Genevieve Behrend,including a number of books I have read from PSITEK.

The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy and The Master Key System by Charles Haanel. The Kybalion. First two books actually are about the same subject and they complete each other. the last one however is different, it deals with the inner world as well as the outside world and joins them both as one ( the all ) .. connected without separation. I also liked the movie ''the secret'' and ''what the bleep do we know''. but they were more like mental/spiritual entertainment! :)

The Bible and The Urania book but not in a religious way. It was more a search to discover the 'truth' behind the oppressive cult I had been inducted to at 12. In that sense, Walking the Bible by Bruce Feiler. Also, The Holy Virus by Lional Parkinson. Reading them broke the bond of religious oppression.

Other books:

The Disappearance of the Universe,

The film of The Secret is the thing that first woke me up to the fact that I create my own life, then James Ray and then Abraham Hicks. Napoleon Hill, Charles Haan and others have helped point me on my way too. I have found Kelly Howell's The secret Meditation very good. It's based on US Anderson's Three Magic Words, another book that is worth reading!

I would have to say Eckhart Tolle's " A New Earth " began my spiritual quest and too many to mention since. A lot I found on Psi Tek ( thanks Simon ) and after that one just led to another. Wayne Dyer"s " Change you thoughts change your life " had some profound insights regarding the " Tao Te Ching " and Michael Beckwith"s " Spiritual Liberation " provide a lot of insight too.

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. This book started me on my quest for learning and to seek knowledge. It was recommended to me by a psychic. It was the first book I had read in a long time that had me asking more questions than I had answers for. The premise is so simple, yet it is an incredibly difficult thing to live in the now.

"Power over others is weakness disguised as strength. True power is within, and is available to you now."

I think for me what started me on my quest were the four book set the Lost Teachings of Jesus. It started a quest into finding the divine being I am, I later understood more with joining Astara and the Mayans. Both are mystery schools and their material very awakening. The secret teachings of the Rosicrucians was very awakening and led me to the seven laws of the universe as were found on the emerald tablet. The parallel teachings of Jesus and Buddha was another very awakening book. Also The Secret of the Ages was very informative on manifesting. Florance Scovel Shinn her books are very awakening for manifesting. I have a book on the Hermetica that I highly value The Hermetica: Lost Wisdom of the Pharaohs.

My biggest and best were my joining the Society Of Secrets their books are amazing and a CD collection I have from them best I ever heard anywhere "Your Wish Is Your Command."

I have many many others but these were some great ones.

EFT training videoslink text by Gary Craig and others on youtublink texte helped me to begin to understand that emotions cause pain and illness, and how to eliminate the negative emotions and create peace in place of a storm.

Healing Back Painlink text by Dr. John E. Sarno helped me to further understand that my emotions are causing the pain. I learned another way to control pain from this book. Also, this book led me to seek other books that would explain healing and other possible human phenomena.

Spontaneous Healing : How to Discover and Embrace Your Body's Natural Ability to Maintain and Heal Itself link textby Andrew Weil was the next book on this journey. It documented different healing methods. One quote really struck me, "As above so below, as below so above." I looked that up online and found that there was another part to that, "As within so without, as without so within." I really started getting some further insight on this and was led to

Living Matrix: Film on the New Science of Healinglink text DVD. This was very exciting and informative. It led me to

The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter, & Miracleslink text which I love! It gives insight into the cellular level activity.

The Genie in Your Genes: Epigenetic Medicine and the New Biology of Intentionlink text is very exciting and informative. It covers a lot of ground about the human body and consciousness and interconnectedness and prayer and healing. I am still reading it, but it has already had an impact on my thinking.

Jesus Taught It Too (The Early Roots Of The Law Of Attraction) - Philip F Harrislink text is available through this site's partner site psi-tek. It was very enlightening.

The Bible has shaped my life also. As I read these other books, it changes how I read and understand the Bible.

I just read The Secret of Instant Healing. It seems too good to be true, but it is consistant with what I have learned about quantum physics, etc... So we shall see.

I recently read my own poems from when I was 19-20. They are very relevant to the discussions on this site. It seems I have come back around to previous understangs that I forgot at times while in the world.

When my son was little, I read How to Really Love Your Childlink text by Dr. Ross Campbell. It was very helpful in my parenting. I have re read it recently as well as part of How to Really Love Your Teenager by the same author. I have found them both to be very relevant to the other books I have been reading. How to really Love your Child mentions how the time before birth and then the first six years, our brainwaves are such that we just download information. This is mentioned in several other texts.

Over the past twenty years I've read many many many books from the Mind Body Spirit section of the bookstore. I started off with the body when doctors failed to get to the bottom of various ailments and then moved to the mind (positive thinking etc) and can still remember when I finally "got" the whole spirit thing.

I would recommend to you a book by Tom Butler-Bowdon entitled "The Fifty Greatest Spiritual Books". It was probably printed a few years ago now and so won't contain the very latest but all the classics are reviewed and you can see what speaks to you and investigate further.

I particularly loved "Many lives, many masters" and the "Conversations with God" trilogy - absolutely fantastic - both mentioned by others here. However it wasn't until I read "Ask and it is Given" by Abraham Hicks about four years ago and started actually working through some of the processes that I really felt like I was making consistent progress. I discussed this with a LOA coach recently and he said he sees a lot of people who spend years reading around the whole spiritual/self help subject but never really get around to "doing the work" - by this he means using techniques such as meditating and lists of appreciation as a means to raising your vibration not just for a week but as a lifelong thing. You see this a lot with people who go on endless courses but never really stick with the programme. I realised I had let the books become a private obsession and I had become sort of an expert in this area but was failing to live it. Have a good look around for stuff that speaks to YOU, enjoy reading it but don't forget for a book/movie to influence you and change the course of your life you have to APPLY IT or live it on an ongoing basis!

Much love to you on your quest.

(04 Jun '12, 16:39) English Rose

The bible and my oneness with the Lord Jesus and how he loves me. He said I will be your mother, father, sister, brother, friend. That made an big difference for me. Also the bible say it is not what goes in your mouth that deflies you but what comes out and it also says the tongue can speak life and death. If it can speak life an death than it can speak health, wealth, happiness, sadness or what ever. So be careful what you speak about your self, love one and others. Jesus said we can do things he has done and greater things than he. Which use to really confuse me of how we could do that. But now I understand for God is the creator of human and this world and we are the co-creator that is so powerful. But we still have our free will.

Jesus loves us so much that he die on the cross for all of our sins!

But as I learn more an more about the sub-concious mind we have and how it photographs what we think and say and plays it back to us as reality.

The master key I am just started reading. You know everybody talks about the Law of Attraction and the Secret but than people are still stuck in their unable to obtain abundace of life, good health, love, happiness, peace, and finding out what do they really want to do.

Watching the videos of what Ambraham Hicks is talking about.

Some of these I am just learning about from this site and the nice people giving me information.

But hands down God, Jesus Christ, the bible, and the Holy Angels.

There is power in knowledge and understanding.

The first book that truly inspired me was "Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East." By Baird T. Spalding. And "The Celestine Prophecy" helped me a lot to understand myself. "Quartum Organum" helped me release my limited concepts about my connection to God. "The Dayspring of Youth" is a constant help in freeing myself from physical and astalogical limitations. "The Science of Being" by far has assisted me more than any other book because it gives me the practical application in every day life. "Bringers of the Dawn" has helped me to renew a "conscious' contact with my other planetary family.

I love and read with passion all books that deal with truth, reality and the path towards inner attainment.

Toshiro Great question. Indeed there are as many spiritual paths as there are people. I just saw Wayne dyer last month in Santa Monica and I have enjoyed reading his books over the years he has really developed spiritualy from Erroneos Zones. The world is a better place because of teachers like him. When I was 18 I was given the book As A Man Thinkith by James Allen. Interstingly Tony Robbins claims this book as the most influencial in his life. What I found out is that in his short life he authored many books and each one is more influencial than the next. As one of the New Thought Fathers his books have an awesome balance of Budhism, Jesus,and tolstoyian influence. Poetic and deep many people dont like him but I have always gravitated toward the Insightfull thoughts of this wonderfull teacher. Truth is UNIVERSAL and Truth liberates us from identification to a false sense of security Ie the EGO. Most people never even enter the temple of thier own souls let alone live and inhabit the mansion that is thier rightfull place. Thier is a huge movement toward spirituality now and a plethera of teachers available. I like many of the teachers of today but I have still yet to find a more profound guru than James Allen

While it's true that the Bible has been used to justify all kinds of evil behavior and much human suffering, one cannot dismiss the impact for good that it has had around the world. One can misuse any source of wisdom and/or knowledge. However, I have found the spiritual principles in the Bible to be worthy of our serious consideration.

I must point to the Bible as my first and most important written source of influence. And I find that when I read it with an open mind, and without the negative bias based on the many failures of Bible adherents, it is in harmony with most of the great spiritual principles that are accepted by most people who are seeking meaning, purpose and truth.

While many people have a very narrow view and interpretation of the Bible, I think its message is incredibly inspirational and capable of drawing us to deeper understandings about life. As many times as I read a passage from the Bible, I rarely ever fail to find some new nugget of inspiration in it.

Most of all, though, it has encouraged within me a mindset of seeking knowledge and truth. So it has planted in me the seeds of desire to seek out and explore all the other sources of inspiration that I have subsequently studied.

My life took an amazing turn when I was led to read..

.. books about what Edgar Cayce's source had to say. They were the books that led me to experience 'my angel' appearance. Cayce on Reincarnation was the first book.

(I say led because the man died in 1945 and I had never heard of him.. but by a series of unusual circumstances his name was put before my eyes three times in three weeks.)

.. Books by Zachariah Sitchin, most expecially the Twelfth Planet.

(I received Sitchin's name in a dream and only discovered that it was the surname of a man when I googles the strange word. And I only googled it because it kept coming to mind.)

All of the works by the above gave me an entirely new slant of the sacred literature of the world... especially the Bible.

I cannot finish this post without mentioning The Quiet Mind by White Eagle - it is the only book that several now deceased friend said gave them solace. Strongly recommend this book to all who are in turmoil.

For me it started with Dr. Joseph Murphy and "The Power of your Subconscious Mind" and Norman Vincent Peale "The Power of Positive Thinking" many, many years ago, at least 30. Then I started reading and listening to Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, Jesse Duplantis and some more on the religious side, but more less the same message about how important it is to to watch what you say and think. I spent a lot of time in the libraries and bookstores, reading. Then, after I got my first computer in 2001, I did research into this and found more on the metaphysical side like Florence Scovel Shinn and some more like her. Because of the computer I am able to subscribe to the websites I am interested in and get updates to learn more which helps my learning. Even though I do agree with the meta physical part in general, I do believe in a personal God, but NOT somewhere out there, but living inside each one of us. I visit different kind of churches and I am not bogged down by one denomination b/c I believe there is some truth in all teachings and nobody is completely right. I have started to work with the LoA lately and had some minor success with it, but I believe the reason for that is the feeling part. For over 40 years I have not shown feelings, at least not to people, at least this way you don't get hurt and nobody can take advantage of you. I do show feelings towards my pets and I am working on it in regards to the LoA, according to Abraham and others, this is necessary and this is how the Universe knows what we want. It just feels forced when I actually try and do it, like for visualization. But I am working on it and I also listen to affirmations and guided meditations on my mp3 player to help me with this.

"The Power of Positive Thinking" By Norman Vicent Peale, and my favorite quote from this book is: " I can do all things, through Christ who strenghtens me." Wow, very powerful words, it has changed my life in many different ways. The Navigator Book, is very inspirational, kind of magical. Frankly, I have lost count of all the books that has somehow impacted me in one way or another. The Bible is my book of life. Some of the verses in the Bible such as: " Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee." This verse is very healing to the mind and soul. Another book that is interesting is: "The Looking Glass What Do You See?" There is lots to see, read, and to think about in this book. It is like an eye opener to me. There is a message in the story line in this book. There is still much to read, and learn in life, but as you know, we all learn from each other. "The old will become new, and the new will become old. We are the present, the future, and the past."

Conversations with God - Book I and Book III by Neale Donald Walsch. These books are my absolute favorites and I read a random page from them every time I am in doubt or depressed.

Everything contributes to our development. Khalil Gibran's "The Prophet" have had the most influence that I can see besides Tolstoi.

@Celine : I recommend the books: The Art of Living And this book is really about the way of life - rather than building up faith out of it. I hope you like it :)
