  • EXAMINING YOUR DOCTOR - A Patient's Guide to Avoiding Harmful Medical Care by Timothy B. McCall, M.D. (I'll bet the AMA wanted to burn this guy at the stake for this book!)

  • RECLAIMING OUR HEALTH - Exploding the Medical Myth and Embracing the Source of True Healing by John Robbins. ("John Robbins takes on the medical establishment in this rousing book. As a champion of women and children, Robbins writes with passion about the destructive influence of patriarchal medicine and points the way to a future medicine that integrates the best of conventional and alternative therapies - and that honors nature as the source of all healing." Andrew Weil, M.D.)

  • Books and tapes by Dr Andrew Weil.

  • ANATOMY OF THE SPIRIT - The Seven Stages of Power and Healing by Caroline Myss, Ph.D. - Caroline is a medical intuitive who uses energy medicine and shows how every illness corresponds to a pattern of emotional and psychological stresses, beliefs, and attitudes that have corresponding areas in the human body. Her cds and dvds are excellent too.

  • REBIRTHING MADE EASY A Gateway to Self-Knowledge, Aliveness and Compassion by Colin P. Sisson  - The Breathing Technique of Rebirthing and the 12 Self-Sabotage Conditioning habit patterns that we need to look at and recognize as entrenched knee-jerk reactions/beliefs.

  • Books and tapes by Roger Woolger, Ph.D. on past life regressive therapy can be found HERE.  I participated in a two-day seminar in 1989 with Dr. Woolger and found his work to be fascinating and illuminating. He is now doing something called Deep Memory Process. You can read some of his articles online.


  • SUGAR BLUES by William Duffy (1975) - From the overleaf: "Here's a bold, prophetic, blackly comic shocker pulled off by a writer-detective who rampages through centuries of hidden history, forgotten folklore, eternal Eastern wisdom, and shifty Western science, drawing of 50 years of medical misadventures and a decade of world-wide research to lay it on the line....and shake us out of a sweet, sweet stupor."

  • FIT FOR LIFE I & ll by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond -All about food combining properly so it will digest and a healthy living lifestyle.

  • Another great little book that is just packed with healing techniques and exercises is 'THE PSYCHIC HEALING BOOK' by Amy Wallace and Bill Henkin. Don't let the title scare you off, we're all psychic (intuitive) to some extent. I am precognitive, clairvoyant, clairsentient (empathic), and sometimes clairaudient.

  • The book 'ARE YOU REALLY TOO SENSITIVE?' by Marcy Calhoun can give you a handle on this subject. Interesting stuff to help you understand and harness your God-given abilities. Please don't ask me to 'tell your fortune' or make predictions for you, however. I am not a 'reader' in that sense of the word. I get my impressions when I talk to a person - during the course of a conversation I might have an impulse to say something or direct someone to information or a book that could be helpful to that person.

  • WITH WINGS AS EAGLES and PRACTICAL SPIRITUALITY by John Randolph Price. (John's books are many and are practical applications of metaphysical principles. His more recent books THE ANGELS WITHIN US and ANGEL ENERGY describe the 22 inner archetypes/whirlpools of power with their counterparts in mythology, world religions, the zodiac, the Tarot, and the Bible.)

  • ANIMAL-SPEAK The Spiritual and Magical Powers of Creatures Great and Small by Ted Andrews. (Includes a dictionary of animal symbolism. Ted works in the Animal Rehabilitation Program at the Brukner Nature Center, Troy, Ohio and is a Raptor guy. All his books are good.)

  • SPIRIT GUIDES - We Are Not Alone by Iris Belhayes  - If you think that what you get with your 5 physical senses is all there is to reality this book will inform you otherwise.

  • I COME AS A BROTHER by Bartholomew - a discarnate entity who has had many earth incarnations and wants to help us poor shlups out here! "I come to remind you that you have ALWAYS been a part of the Source, so that you can say within your being, 'Ah, I remember, I have NEVER been separate. Love is always here, pulsating through all that I do. And all my pain isn't because I am not loved, but because I forgot that I could Love.' Love is not an abstraction, it is a quality of Being that exists in everyone in equal measure. It can be activated at any time by the conscious will that says, "I CHOOSE TO LOVE."

  • EARTH TO TAO by Jose Stevens,Ph.D  - Michael's Guide to Healing and Spiritual Awakening - "The hallmark of the spiritual person is awareness or the ability to be awake...Wakefulness is an essence activity whereas being asleep is a basic function of false personality...Being awake is a product of wider and deeper perception of your own actions and those of others. As you become more perceptive, you become more aware of essence-directed activity... Wider perceptivity allows you live life more fully and effortlessly and to become more tolerant of others, their lessons and goals in this lifetime. These may be different from your own but just as valid...As you become more tolerant, you develop the ability to heal yourself. As you heal yourself, you heal others."

  • Anything from White Eagle.  - Healing/Christ Consciousness/The White Eagle Lodge.

Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof."

  • REVOLUTION FROM WITHIN - A Book of Self-Esteem by Gloria Steinem. - From back cover: "For two decades, Gloria Steinem has led a social revolution against injustice.

  • John Bradshaw's ON THE FAMILY  - The first book I read on family of origin/abuse/ACOA issues. AND I met John Bradshaw at a workshop he gave in New Brunswick, NJ - what a nice man.
