Healing the Luminous Body

 

Healing the Luminous BodyThe Way of the Shaman, Sacred Mysteries: 2004, featuring paintings by Alex Grey.

Healing the Luminous Body was my first access to Dr. Villoldo’s unique healing methods that he presents and explains in more detail in his books. This DVD is very well done, a calm and peaceful introduction into the philosophy, the development and the effectiveness of healing the luminous body..

Dr. Villoldo expresses himself fluently, and he is able to inform about the unusual subject in a competent and poised manner. It becomes clear that he speaks of experience, not of theory. Continue reading

Shaman, Healer, Sage

 

Shaman, Healer, SageHow to Heal Yourself and Others with the Energy Medicine of the Americas, New York: Harmony Books, 2000.

Shaman, Healer, Sage is perhaps Alberto Villoldo’s best book. It was anyway the book that made him famous, a real bestseller. It has given me an ultimate peak of reading enjoyment and illumination, and it has also emotionally touched me.

The author comes over in this book as a really honest, competent, emotionally mature, wistful and empathetic person who went through a personal transformation that only few people in these times can say to have accomplished.

This book is not only highly recommended lecture; it can perhaps be considered as one of the best books so far in the century on the issues of shamanic healing and the challenging task to render an outlandish practice of Inka shamans comprehensive to the modern mind! Continue reading

The Field

 

The FieldThe Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe, New York: HarperCollins, 2002.

The Field by Lynne McTaggart is the book I always wanted to read because I always wanted to write it. I always wanted to write a study that proves that all what myopic modern science excludes, exists. And here is this book. It reads almost like a thriller, so captivating it is, and the author is able to convey the complex material in understandable terms.

It is obvious that she understands what she writes about, and some of the quantum physics stuff really is not easy to grasp.

The author argues from the premise that all in our universe is interconnected, that nothing is isolated, or, as scientists say, that all is entangled. Now, when you put up such a point of departure, a lot of consequences flow out from this. Continue reading

The Chakras

 

The ChakrasCorrelations between Medical Science and Clairvoyant Observation, Shafica Karagulla, with Dora van Gelder Kunz, Wheaton: Quest Books, 1989.

This is an extraordinary book. I do research on the bioenergy since two decades, but I have not encountered so much information about such esoteric a subject in one single book. But I must warn the non-scientific reader: this isn’t a book for enhancing your general knowledge about the aura, and the chakras, and it is by no means a practical book, guidebook, or anything of the kind.

You got two medical practitioners here, one of which is a clairvoyant. The author herself, Shafica Karagulla, is the kind of traditional physician who writes with a lot of ‘faculty terms’, so to speak, using medical terminology all over the place. Further down, I’ll quote some examples. So think twice if you want to buy this book. For me personally, it was indispensable for my research. There are some elucidations in this book that I found earlier in my research, but only after studying tedious manuals and old hermetic writings.  Continue reading

Infinite Mind

 

Infinite MindScience of Human Vibrations of Consciousness, Malibu, CA: Malibu Publishing, 2000.

I found Infinite Mind by Valerie Hunt only recently, while it’s not a new book. It was published in 2000, but the research it is based upon dates back to the 1970s. But that does in no way turn down or diminish the importance of this book. In the contrary, it shows that every thorough research needs decades to really condense into something we call a science. And then, there is another lapse of time involved in this science to be recognized by the established science tradition and academia!

This has to my knowledge not been done yet specifically for Hunt’s Science of the Human Vibrations of Consciousness, but it has been done in a larger framework, within what today is called consciousness research, and which has been fertilized by many different sciences. Continue reading
