In line with Satori's question regarding music that put you in the Vortex... what books put you in the Vortex or make you feel better?

I suggest Creating a Charmed Life from Victoria Moran. Simple but spiritual tips to improve your life.

I have been working my way through an e book from Ken Maclean and The Guys. Ken channels "The Guys" on a weekly radio show called Interview with Spirit. The book I'm reading is called Weekly Messages and I have to say I have never read anything that is so simple, so informative and just makes me feel really good when I read it. The cost is minimal - about US dollars 5 - the only downside is that you either have to do a mega 300 plus page print out OR read it on the computer. I highly recommend it for just getting you in a really good place vibrationally. The other advantage is that you can dip into it and read a few of the messages in one go but the overall effect is that each message builds on the previous one - utterly brilliant.

EDIT: 5 January 2013

This question came to mind recently as I read another channelled book - Emmanuel's Book A manual for living comfortably in the cosmos compiled by Pat Rodegast and Judith Stanton. It is a really lovely book full of concise yet profound wisdom and over the past two to three months has become a firm favourite of mine. It has a lovely poetic feel to it and can be be dipped into when you need a pick-me-up.

I also like The Guys.

(02 Aug '12, 21:35) T A

I think The Guys are seriously under-rated. Ken seems quite happy to just quietly do his own thing without promoting them too much but if you read a book like Dialogues (first part available free here: ), it can almost turn your mind inside out from the depth of the insights contained within it :)

@Catherine @Stingray-Thank you for the recommendations and the link:).Ive been reading through Dialogues.Really loving this material.Thank you.Catherine a smaller device  would be ideal for you to read those Ebooks. IPod touch or Ipad. Even a smart phone:)

(03 Aug '12, 19:20) Satori

@Satori - You're welcome. It is a tremendous book, similar in many ways to Abraham but also seemingly going "further" at times

(04 Aug '12, 08:22) Stingray

@Stingray-Yes I see what you mean.Im enjoying reading through some of the articles and I have ordered the book:) They seem to have a  tougher crowd than Abraham, not that they seem to be to bothered by it :).I suppose they have not got the same following Abraham has.

(04 Aug '12, 11:05) Satori

@Satori - Abraham has always been about practical use-it-right-now information because they came in response to Jerry Hicks' desire for a practical, workable version of the Seth teachings. For that reason, Abraham appeals to the widest audience...because most people just want their "stuff" ASAP :) I think it's a matter of personal interest if one goes further and wants to know the mechanics of Why & How the Universe operates as it does which some of these other less popular beings focus upon.

(04 Aug '12, 12:59) Stingray

This book looks great at first glance...I have always been interested in the "mechanics" as it helps me to have more faith and feel grounded in a system...really looking forward to printing this book out and getting started. Thanks again!

(04 Aug '12, 14:13) lozenge123

@Stingray - 100% agree on Ken Maclean. Thanks for the Psi Tek link - there is loads of great stuff to check out on that website too. @Satori - I'd love an Ipad for book reading - the request box beckons. @Lozenge123 I find people that stick with LOA and make it work for them are usually the sort who want to find out more. The best thing about this book is that it makes you feel great - I can literally feel my vibration rising.

(05 Aug '12, 06:10) Catherine

@Stingray-Thank you for that clarification.Now I see the difference.Abrahams teachings are more practical of course.Similar to the electricity analogy.We don't have to know what electric is or how its generated to know how to use it:) Really starting to resonate with channelled material.Maybe there was a time I wasn't comfortable with it but now I realise that if the information resonates deeply with me then the source of that info doesn't matter.Thanks:)

(05 Aug '12, 07:03) Satori

@Satori - Re: channelled material. Don't worry about it. I could have saved myself at least 20 years of searching for answers if I had been more open-minded about the idea of it :) It was only after I started to get some "channellings" of my own that I had no choice but to believe it was a valid process. As you imply, the source of any material doesn't really matter in the end if it is helpful to you.

@Satori - I ordered Prescriptions for Happiness from Amazon after reading what you had to say about it, should be here any day. Oh, and I'm just abt to turn off the tablet and put on GITV cd to go to sleep with as you suggested. That was good advice, it is helping me. Thank you again.

(04 Aug '12, 01:15) Grace

@Grace-Great book Grace and I'm glad that evening meditation is helping you.On the subject of that, thanks to a link from @Stingray below from the excellent book Dialogues  I found an article that may be of interest to you:

@Satori - In my head this morning. Thank you for thinking of me. This thread is turning into a treasure chest for me.

There are so many books over the years but a few stick in my mind as old and new favourites.

Any book by Joseph Murphy. They are as valid today as when they were first written and this man knew about the subconscious mind and how it works and attracts or blocks which is something the modern gurus are only picking up on now.

Any book by Gregg Braden. Gregg is a scientist and a mystic and I simply love any of his books.

The power of Now and The New Earth by Eckhardt Tolle. Practise what they preach and your life will become much easier to live.

Awareness by Anthony DeMello which is also about the power of now and some of my friends prefere it to otheres about living in the moment.

The greatest salesman in the world by Og Mandido is a timeless clasic and the 2nd scroll is my favourite piece of writing and one I try to live by.

Any book by Anthony Robins. Anthony is a master of his craft and anyone wanting to improve the quality of their life can do so as he easily explaines how to acomplish this.

When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes I all alone beweep my outcast state, And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries, And look upon myself, and curse my fate, Wishing me like to one more rich in hope, Featured like him, like him with friends possessed, Desiring this man's art, and that man's scope, With what I most enjoy contented least; Yet in these thoughts my self almost despising, Haply I think on thee, and then my state, Like to the lark at break of day arising From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate; For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings, That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

So you might have guessed it's William Shakespeare. Preferably comedies and sonnets, but really anything. Poetry, especially, when rhymes are up beat and fun to read.

Love this, Shakespeare was (is) so wise and insightfull and the above words transport me to instant heaven.

"Our revels now are ended. These our actors. as i foretold you, were all spirits, and are melted into thin air. And like the baseless fabric of this vision. The cloud capp'd tow'rs, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself,, yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve. And like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind, We are such stuff that dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep"; The Tempest, Act 4, scene 1 ... :)

(05 Jan '13, 08:49) blubird two

@Blubird two, haven't read that one yet, but this is so beautifully expressed the idea that I had in mind for a while now.

We are here and then we dissolve into thin air, leaving not a rack behind. In this sense, I find death quite beautiful act.

And while Shakespeare talks about the same thing that e.g. Lao-Tzu talked, he expresses it so in much more sophistical and poetic way.

(07 Jan '13, 04:33) CalonLan

@Blubird two, there is something peculiar about many famous people - like Lao-Tzu, Buddha, Jesus, Shakespeare and I'm sure many others of artists or people of various professions. They all share something in common, understanding of the way of life.

It's rather sad though, that people's way of worshiping and admiring them stands in the way of understanding what they were trying to say.

Seth books are my favorites.

(04 Aug '12, 06:28) T A

Ask and It Is Given - Esther and Jerry Hicks

This book is usually a given for anyone who enjoys channeled information and it seems to get better every time you read it. It was the first big eye opener for me regarding who I really am in this existence.

The Power of Your Subconscious Mind - Joseph Murphy

This was the first book in my life that I read through twice in a short period of time. I read this in the beginning stages of my spiritual journey and remember being so excited about the positive things that were being shared.

The Power of Now - Ekhart Tolle

Without a doubt one of the most motivational and uplifting books that exists. Don't let the mainstream hype put you off from reading it like I did. The now moment is the most powerful tool we humans have at our disposal. Take some time right NOW and read it if you haven't already.

The Science of Getting Rich - Wallace D. Wattles

Even though this book is over a hundred years old, it strikes a chord in me of how everything in this universe works. It's nice to hear the Law of Attraction put in a different and scientific format which gives some variety to similar teachings. The intention of this book focuses solely on the subject of money, but for me, it delivers a whole lot more.

Quest for Truth: 100 Insights That Could Change Your Life - Darryl Anka/Steve Meyers

This is one of the two books from "Bashar" that I know of which I am currently reading now. It is primarily a book of questions and answers from Bashar workshops pre - 1997. Even though I have heard a lot of the same things in this book that I do through Bashar videos, I am thoroughly enjoying reading this in written format. It helps the content sink in a little more and I am constantly putting the book down and absorbing sentences every paragraph. I'm only half way through so far and am kind of surprised at how much I enjoy this even though I hear similar things from Bashar all the time. I can truly feel my vibration rise every time I pick it up.

There are probably other books out there that I haven't listed or forgot about at the moment. But if I was stuck on a deserted island, and these were what I had to read, I would be more than happy with this powerful collection.

This is a rather different answer from the others, but when I read The Golden Compass, and its sequels, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass, they moved and inspired me, and ultimately, when combined with Coldplay's Vivia La Vida and Prospekt's March, ended up changing the entire course of my life, spiritually, artistically, Associationally, and personally. Those books were a catalyst that helped me to ultimately step up to a new level in personal growth.
