The Biology of Belief - Bruce Lipton
How your beliefs can change your DNA, from a scientific perspective. This fact shows why alien hybridization is unnecessary for humanity to evolve.
Illusions - Richard Bach
Novel about a reluctant messiah and his apprentice, and the transcendent lessons taught to him about reality being an illusion.
Quiet Mind - White Eagle
Pocketbook of inspirational and true sayings by White Eagle, in Christian context. Works well as an oracle, and gives decent advice about living with spiritual integrity and balanced vibes.
The Gospels of Thomas - Jean-Yves Leloup
Translation and commentary on the gnostic Gospel of Thomas, a collection of the sayings of Jesus, of which three quarters are straight out of the Bible but the way they are written is different. Closer to the original teachings than the Bible itself.
William Walker Atkinson
Books by the author of the Kybalion, on hermetic knowledge concerning the power of consciousness, subtle energies, self-improvement, and self-mastery. Classic and foundational texts on this subject, back when formerly secret society knowledge was given the green light to be presented to the public.
Another esoteric teacher of the early 1900s who taught the right use of metaphysical laws toward greater harmony, self-empowerment, healing, and happiness. This, decades before the New Age picked up and ran with its own distorted version of it. Goes well with Atkinson's material.
The Stellar Man - John Baines
Synthesis of modern psychology and Hermeticism. Thorough explanation of the Hermetic Principles. Also includes a legend of how Moses screwed things up by making a pact with a demonic entity named "Y".
Cry of the Eagle - Theun Mares
Second book in the Toltec Teaching Series. Mares gets more technical regarding Toltec Shamanism. Focus is on being a warrior and training your consciousness. Includes instructions on how to do Active Dreaming (aka wake-induced-lucid-dreaming for esoteric purposes). (online
Mists of Dragon Lore - Theun Mares
Third book in the Toltec Teaching Series. More technical lessons. It becomes clear at this point that Toltec teachings have off-planetary origin, as with Sufism and Hermeticism. (online
Shadows of Wolf Fire - Theun Mares
Fourth book in the Toltec Teaching Series. Recaps the first three and fills in lots of blanks, then gets onto the "Sorcerer's Explanation" which is pure Gnostic Truth wrapped in myth. Mares knows what he's talking about. (online
Theosophy - Rudolf Steiner
Steiner's primer on Anthroposophy. Not a summary of Blavatsky's Theosophy, but rather his own take on it, based on his occult perceptions and investigations. Astral, etheric, physical body defined. (online
How to Know Higher Worlds - Rudolf Steiner
Steiner outlines what it takes to develop psychic powers. Combination of spiritual integrity and training of consciousness. Ties into Mares' technique of Active Dreaming, and Monroe's "mind-awake-body-asleep" state. (online
Stages of Higher Knowledge - Rudolf Steiner
Every book by Steiner has big blanks that only other books and lectures of his fill in. This one is a major blank-filler. Explains the three higher states of consciousness that one achieves through esoteric training. (online
The Incarnation of Ahriman - Rudolf Steiner
The interplay between Ahriman, Lucifer, and Christ -- the three intelligences actively at work in our history. Helps overcome binary thinking, since this trinary model is closer to reality. Explains a lot about the way things are in the world.
Initiation Into Hermetics - Franz Bardon
Magical / occult training. Recommended for information purposes only. Some of the exercises are good, but others get too close to black magic. Has valuable information on mirror scrying (psychomanteum) and various types of thoughtforms including parasitic ones. Bardon was experienced in occult pathologies and useful advice for treating them can be gleaned from this book. (online
Meditations on the Tarot - Anonymous
Philosophical essays on esotericism inspired by the tarot deck. Good insights here and there, though quite intellectual with an unfortunate Catholic bias.
In Search of the Miraculous - P.D. Ouspensky
Introduction to Fourth Way philosophy. Focuses on man being asleep at the wheel and mechanical in his habits like a robot, and how to fight that. As the subtitle says, these are fragments of an unknown teaching: thus incomplete. What's missing is the heart component. See Mouravieff for that. (online
Gnosis, Volumes I, II, III - Boris Mouravieff
Supposedly based on the original teachings of which Fourth Way is just a collection of fragments. Main source is inner Eastern Orthodox, but probably traces back to Sufi and related groups. Something valuable on every page. Not a fan of his political views, but the esoteric stuff is spot on. Includes discussion on spiritless humans, called pre-Adamics in the book. (online only)
Seth Speaks - Jane Roberts
Classic channeling text with metaphysical advice for daily living. May be the first New Age book to introduce concept of timelines and probable futures.
The Cassiopaean Transcripts - LKJ, et al...
Fourteen years of channeled transmissions from higher dimensional light beings. Done through Ouija board, thus concise in their responses. Despite corruption, I'd say the core cosmology concerning the densities, and the tactical advice concerning negative forces, is valid because it completely matches my experience and research to date. Goes well with the Ra Material / Law of One. (online only)
Bringers of the Dawn - Barbara Marciniak
Part of same paradigm bundle as the Cassiopaean Transcripts and Ra Material, but written in a more colloquial and empowering style. Greater emphasis on why some of us are here in relation to the upcoming Shift. Good balance between conspiracy and spirituality. (online
The Law of One, Book I
Channeling done in early 1980s, of quality and profundity greater than anything before and possibly after. Meshes well with the Cassiopaean Transcripts
and Bringers of the Dawn
, though in comparison is more technical and dense. (online
The Law of One, Book II
Second book in the Ra Material / Law of One series. The series explains the concepts of STS and STO to a very fine degree, and likewise with the densities. (online
The Law of One, Book III
Third book in the Ra Material / Law of One series. There are also books IV and V but I don't consider them as important or monumental as the first three. (online
The Convoluted Universe, Book 1 - Dolores Cannon
Transcripts of sessions with hypnotized subjects taken so deep that other consciousnesses come through. The quality of information that comes through is hit or miss, but some of the subjects are completely fascinating and plausible.
The Convoluted Universe, Book 3 - Dolores Cannon
Most recent book by Cannon on her hypnosis work. Fascinating as always. These three volumes are great as mind-stretchers, to help you consider possibilities not previously imagined about what could be going on.
Alien / Abduction
Secret Life - David Jacobs
Introduction to alien abductions with several case studies. Jacobs learned hypnosis from Hopkins and refined the technique.
The Threat - David Jacobs
The conclusion of Jacobs' research into alien abductions, that Greys are breeding hybrids to replace us. Likely true, but Jacobs then scoffs at the idea of military involvement in abductions, which is undoubtedly the case since abductees have seen them work side by side with aliens. (online
The Mothman Prophecies - John Keel
Men in Black, Nordic aliens, robotoids, and flying humanoids converge upon a small town in West Virginia, all leading up to the collapse of a bridge that killed dozens of the same witnesses who reported these sightings. Keel was in the middle of it all, and concludes they are ultraterrestrial beings. (online
Extra-Terrestrial Friends and Foes - George C. Andrews
Second book by Andrews on aliens. In the first, he was warm to them. But after doing more research realized that something was amiss. This book takes a stance of discernment and includes lots of underground information supporting such a stance. Decent survey of the fringier side of alienology.
The Blue Planet Project - Anonymous
Allegedly a notebook smuggled out by an underground base scientist. More likely a reconstruction made from various tidbits of inside information bundled in the semblance of such a report. Either way, and cartoonish drawings aside, info is fascinating especially regarding mind control, implants, and black ops craft capabilities. (online only)
Taken - Karla Turner
Turner's most accessible and concise work. Includes several case studies and compares them. Exposes the nasty side of the alien presence, including cloning and replacement of humans. The kind of book aliens and military abductors would rather you not read. (online only)
Masquerade of Angels - Karla Turner
Case study on one abductee and his horrible experiences with Reptilian and other negative alien beings. Tough read due to the disturbing nature of the experiences. Not long after this book was published, Turner succumbed to a sudden and very aggressive form of breast cancer, after being warned by aliens to discontinue her research. (online only)
Chasing Phantoms - Carissa Conti
Personal experiences, observations and theories into the abduction / mind control phenomenon. Practical and empowering approach toward the MILAB subject that gets into spiritual / hyper-D countermeasures. For anyone who suspects they might be abductees. (online
Allies of Humanity, Book 1 - Marshall Vian Summers
Messages transmitted by off-planetary observers warning of an impending alien deception event. Discusses hostile aliens acting under the guise of benevolence to win over a foolish and desperate planet. Proposes a gnostic type of inner Knowledge as the solution to seeing through such deception. (online
Allies of Humanity, Book 2 - Marshall Vian Summers
Second set of messages transmitted by positive aliens. Summers seems to interject his own frustration at the prevalence of naivete in the UFO, abductee, contactee regarding the true motives of certain alien groups. One of the few books that addresses the issue of negative aliens pretending to be positive.
Secret of the Saucers - Orfeo Angelucci
1950s contactee of positive Nordics. What he says about them may be skewed or embellished, but nonetheless much of it correlates with alienology research coming decades later. Rare for its level of sincerity and spiritual outlook. (online only)
Son of the Sun - Orfeo Angelucci
A terminally ill man tells Angelucci of his own encounters with the same beings. Even if entirely fictional, this book is unrivaled in imparting a mood of spiritual chivalry and grandeur. (online only)
The Gods of Eden - William Bramley
History book that traces alien manipulation of human affairs from ancient to modern times. More balanced and objective than Sitchin. Concludes that earth is under the control of a negative custodial alien race left to manage the planet until their peers return. (online
UFOs and the National Security State, Vol 1 - Richard Dolan
Well-researched history of 20th century Ufology covering 1941-1973, with emphasis on government and military reports, witnesses, and political agendas. This is a great book for anyone needing more documentation and objective analysis regarding the existence of aliens.
The Love Bite - Eve Lorgen
Alien manipulation of human love relationships. Important because it shows how alien mind programming and etheric energy manipulation are used to bring together and break up selected abductees toward inducing emotional anguish, for purposes of energy harvesting. Also gets into spiritual warfare.
Cracks in the Great Wall - Charles Upton
Ufology interpreted from the viewpoint of Sufism and the Perennial Tradition. Unique perspective, benefitting from the advantages of traditional esoteric knowledge, though sometimes suffering from the antiquation of same. (online
The Cryptoterrestrials - Mac Tonnies
Reflective essays on the nature of ephemeral non-humans that seem to be living on earth as a parallel civilization hidden from public awareness. Tonnies died suddenly right before the book went to publishing. This essay compliments John Keel's work and the Comte de Gabalis
Comte de Gabalis - Abbe de Villars
Series of discourses by a Rosicrucian, thought to be St Germain or Francis Bacon. Published in 1670, explains the practice among Rosicrucians of marrying themselves to non-human beings. Seems to put parasitic thought-forms and humanoid aliens under the same banner. This print edition is badly littered with typos, but cheaper and slimmer than other editions. (online
Operation Trojan Horse - John Keel
Keel's magnum opus summarizing mountains of investigations and reports into the UFO and alien phenomenon. Published before the advent of alien abduction research. Covers the hyper-D and trickster aspects of the alien presence. (Lulu Hardcopy
Visitors from Time - Marc Davenport
Makes a solid case, based on evidence from thousands of reports, that aliens ships use time distortion technology and may actually be time travelers.
Matrix / Negative Forces
The Cosmic Pulse of Life - Trevor Constable
Covers orgonomy, psionics, invisible plasmoid lifeforms, negative hyper-D beings, and Steiner philosophy. Very original and fascinating book with lots of information. The author is an experienced weather engineer as well.
Human Race Get Off Your Knees - David Icke
Icke's latest, gets into the moon matrix theory. Fits the Gnosis / Hyperhistory category as well because it discusses how the moon is a broadcast and anchor point for our fallen matrix reality.
Psychic Self-Defense - Dion Fortune
Defense from a magical, ritualistic, and occult perspective. More anecdotal than practical, but shows the kind of occult pathologies that occur. Also mentions humans who are piloted by elemental energies instead of human consciousness. (online
God's Gladiators - Stuart Wilde
Skip the first third of this book, the rest deals with matrix reality and various positive and negative forces involved, including the "god's gladiators" themselves who have traits of 4D STO beings.
Dear God, What's Happening to Us? - Lynne Grabhorn
Her first book was a mainstream New Age hit, but later through pendulum dowsing she stumbled upon a dark conspiracy of nonphysical manipulators who feed off our energies and influence our minds. This book discusses her findings and how to nullify any contracts unknowingly made with such beings. She published one more book after this before succumbing to cancer.
Handbook for the New Paradigm - George Green
Small book with sage advice on how to deal with the NWO through metaphysical means. I prefer splitting it 50/50 between physical and metaphysical tactics and not place all eggs in one basket, but still worth a read. (online
Practical Psychic Self-Defense - Robert Bruce
Defense from an experiential and practical perspective. Bruce is an experienced astral projector with a good grasp of astral and etheric phenomena. He provides methods for removing negative entity infestations.
Siren Call of the Hungry Ghosts - Joe Fisher
Exposé on the deceptive parasitic entities behind a lot of channeling and "spirit guide" phenomena. Fisher experienced first hand how these entities operate. The final chapters give a great analysis on their nature.
Gnosis / Hyperhistory
Opening the Ark of the Covenant - Frank Joseph and Laura Beudoin
Comprehensive all-around book on the Grail and Ark, tracing that technology from Atlantis to Egypt, Greece, France, and more surprising locations. I disagree that the Grail stone was just an electrical transducer, but this book still pulls together a lot of clues.
Parzival - Wolfram von Eschenbach
The best medieval Grail story. Permeated with Gnostic / Cathar / pagan ideology despite an obligatory Catholic gloss. Story of a sheltered boy who becomes a knight and goes through many trials before becoming Grail King. Explains origins of the Grail as a stone brought to earth by neutral angels.
The Ninth Century and the Holy Grail - W. J. Stein
Historical and Anthroposophical analysis of Parzival
by one of Rudolf Steiner's disciples. Traces the historical events of Parzival
to the ninth century A.D. Not a crucial book to read, but does provide historical context for the tale and explains the inner meaning of various passages.
Symbols of Sacred Science - Rene Guenon
Reference book for recurring symbols in esoteric and indo-aryan traditions, particular those referring the axis mundi - polar symbols. Relates to the Grail's function as our reality's lynchpin.
Hamlet's Mill - Georgia de Santillana
Covers Nordic, Persian, Greek, and Indian myths seemingly alluding the precession of the equinoxes, but really I think it relates to hyper-D technology and a grand cataclysm that corrupted our timeline. All these myths have indo-aryan (read: nordic alien / cryptoterrestrial) origins. (online
Mystery of the Grail - Julius Evola
Very good book on the Grail, at least in its conciseness and depth of insight. Covers the various origins of Grail legends including Celtic myth, summarizes the traits of the Grail, and tries to explain the spiritual preparation involved. Comes from a traditional/esoteric perspective.
A Rosicrucian Notebook - Willy Schroedter
Compilation of research into the technology and occult methods employed by the real Rosicrucians. That is, a secret network of human initiates of high spiritual caliber who are guided by alien and divine intelligences. Thoroughly documented with some astounding revelations.
Crusade Against the Grail - Otto Rahn
History of the Cathars and their persecution by the Catholic Church, the Grail, and Gnostic philosophy. Written in 1920s by German researcher who was later employed by Nazis and ended his own life after growing disaffected. Rahn was not just an academic on the outside, but one who immersed himself in Cathar and Gnostic outlook.
Lucifer's Court - Otto Rahn
Travel journal by Rahn as he goes around Europe and Iceland in his hunt for the Grail. For each town he philosophizes and shares pertinent local legends. He rants quite a bit against the Catholic Church and sides with Lucifer as a light bringer. One antisemitic passage was thought to have been added by a Nazi editor of the book. Other than that, this book really captures a teutonic/pagan kind of spirit and is valuable in Grail research.
Revelation of the Holy Grail - Chevalier Emerys
Easy to read and informative introduction to the Grail subject. The author is affiliated with modern fraternal societies and takes their viewpoint. He references Laurence Gardiner whose conclusions I disagree with, but points to an alien origin for the Grail at the end and makes plenty of original connections along the way.
Our Solarian Legacy - Paul von Ward
By knowing its true origins and potential transcendent powers, mankind can fulfill its destiny. Uses history, esoteric tradition, and consciousness research to show what that destiny could be.
The Spear of Destiny - Trevor Ravenscroft
Classic history of Nazi occultism, from an occult rather than bland academic perspective. I think something other than the Spear of Longinus was the root of Hitler's rise and fall, but this book still captures the essence of the occult drama behind it all.
The Exegesis - Philip K. Dick
Compendium of PKD's mystical writings. He was a true modern Gnostic, given a revelation about our matrix reality by some higher intelligence. Gets into competing timelines, the control system, and time travel. Important reading for anyone into my Gnosis Series.
Path of the Pole - Charles Hapgood
History of earth pole shifts, including locations of the previous poles. Has bearing on ancient civilizations and our own future. For instance, former location in Alaska from 80,000 years ago correlates with Indo-Aryans building sacred sites on a Great Circle
centered on that pole. Also see the last chapter of Dwellings of the Philosophers
The Self-Aware Universe - Amit Goswami
Classic book on how quantum theory explains the consciousness-reality interaction, and how reality is therefore responsive to our thoughts. Also does a great job of explaining the various components of consciousness and how they relate to quantum theory.
Turbulent Mirror - David Peat
Easy book on chaos theory, nonlinear systems, solitons, and other aspects of physics close to where life and consciousness begins. Can change the way you view the world.
Feynman Lectures on Physics
A complete undergraduate course in physics, from old-time Newton to electromagnetism, atomic physics, and quantum physics.
Real Alchemy - Robert Bartlett
Basic primer on Alchemy, including an explanation of the terminology, theory, and lab techniques. Written in modern language, this is a very good introduction to Alchemy.
The Secret Book of Artephius
An older but important manuscript, one of the source materials for many succeeding alchemists. Mentions the "secret fire." Tip: if an alchemists names a mineral outright as a key ingredient, then you can cross that mineral off your list as being a key ingredient. But if he is symbolic and vague, then he is hinting at the real thing without ever naming it.
Hermes Unveiled - Cyliani
Famous text published in 1832. This version translated by Patrick Smith into English (for the first time) in 1998. Lauded by Fulcanelli as being one of the clearest and most revealing texts.
Hermes Trismegistus Old Natural Path - I.C.H.
An obscure manuscript published in Leipzig, 1782, referenced by Cyliani. Key info on the technique for breaking down the raw starting material, and the proper order of the various phases. Never before translated into English. I was the editor and book designer for this edition.
