The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe
by Lynne McTaggart; Hardcover 

Book Description
Science has begun to prove what ancient myth and religion has always espoused: that there may be such a thing as a life force. During the past few decades, respected frontier scientists all over the globe have produced extraordinary evidence to show that an energy field -- the Zero Point Field -- connects everything in the universe, and we ourselves are part of this vast dynamic network of energy exchange.

Lynne McTaggart, indefatigable investigative journalist, has spent four years researching this area where science meets the New Age to create this story of scientific explorers, their groundbreaking work, and its controversial implications. Until now, conservative scientists have done their best to rule "god" out of their equations. This book shows why the Zero Point Field makes all things possible: all things connected in space and time.

The Field also reveals a radical new biological paradigm -- that on our most fundamental level, the human mind and body are not distinct and separate from their environment, but a bundle of pulsating power constantly interacting with this vast energy sea. Here, in so-called dead space, may lay the key to many of life's processes, from how cells communicate to how organisms actually take shape. The Field is responsible for our mind's highest functions -- our memory, intuition, and creativity. It is the force that finally determines whether we are healthy or ill, the force that must be tapped in order to heal.

Original and well documented with eminently distinguished sources, The Field also lifts many areas from the level of myth into the realm of hard science. It offers a scientific explanation for many of the most profound human mysteries, from how alternative medicine, spiritual healing, and extrasensory perception work to the existence of the collective unconscious. A highly readable scientific detective story, The Field is the ultimate breakthrough book. It presents a bold new theory that will change your perception of the way your mind and body work.

Anatomy of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Power and Healing
by Caroline Myss (Paperback - September 1997)
Also Available on Audio Cassette
What sets Anatomy of the Spirit apart is Carolyn Myss's ability to blend diverse religious and spiritual beliefs into a succinct discussion of health and human anatomy. For example, when describing the seven energy fields of the human body, she fuses Christian sacraments with Hindu chakras and the Kabbalah's Tree of Life. Fortunately, Myss is a skilled writer as well as researcher, able to ground her extensive spiritual and religious discussions by using real-life stories and a tight writing style. Those who are squeamish with the notion of biography affecting biology will find this book a struggle (in one chapter, Myss links pancreatic cancer with a man's refusal to unburden his life and start fulfilling his dreams). Many, however, hail Myss for creating a valuable contribution to the ongoing exploration of spirituality and health.

A Reader's Comment
After 12 years of searching, reading hundreds of books leading me down lots of dead ends, and living a life on an emotional roller coaster, finally I read something that really speaks to me. This is a fantastic book to begin your journey towards "completeness". It has changed the way I think, like no other book.

Quantum Psychology: How Brain Software Programs You and Your World
by Robert Anton Wilson
Book Description

Throughout human history, thoughts, values and behaviors have been colored by language and the prevailing view of the universe. With the advent of Quantum Mechanics, relativity, non-Euclidean geometries, non-Aristotelian logic and General Semantics, the scientific view of the world has changed dramatically from just a few decades ago. Nonetheless, human thinking is still deeply rooted in the cosmology of the middle ages. Quantum Psychology is the book to change your way of perceiving yourself--and the universe--for the 21st Century. Some say its materialistic, others call it scientific and still others insist its mystical. It is all of these--and none.

Why People Don't Heal and How They Can
by Caroline Ph.D. Myss (Paperback - September 1998)

Book Description
For more than fifteen years, Caroline Myss has studied why some people heal, while others do not. In her previous book, Anatomy of the Spirit, Dr. Myss illuminated the hidden interactions of belief and body, soul and cell to show how, as she inimitably puts it, "your biography becomes your biology." In this new book, she builds on her earlier teachings of the seven different energy centers of the body to provide a vital self-healing program for physical and spiritual disorders. With her characteristic no-nonsense style and high-voltage storytelling, she exposes and explodes the five myths about healing, explains the cultural and individual contexts in which people become physically and spiritually ill and invested in "woundology," and teaches new methods of working with the challenges that the seven energy centers embody.

Both visionary and practical, Why People Don't Heal and How They Can presents a bold new account of the development of human consciousness and spirituality over the ages, and examines the dynamic global transformation of attitudes about healing. To help you get and stay on the path to wellness, Dr. Myss provides rituals and prayers for gaining a symbolic perspective on your life issues; for bolstering your personal power; and for connecting with a universal divine energy. Dr. Myss's breakthrough views on energy medicine and her active approach to healing life issues and physical illness will help you overcome the mental blocks that keep you from becoming well.

The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World
by David Icke (Paperback - January 1999)
Look out Robert Anton Wilson! Either David Icke is competing for the "Paranoid of the Decade" award or he knows something the rest of us don't. Icke reveals a sinister web connecting everything from the British royal family to major oil companies, to 33 of the last 40 U.S. presidents, in a global conspiracy masterminded by an interstellar brotherhood vying for planetary control through the manipulation of humanity's very way of life. Icke digs into every facet of contemporary society to expose the invisible horror lurking beneath the calm veneer of everyday life. In the process he gets downright offensive, knocking everything from Judaism to the Denver airport. Even if you can't swallow Icke's distasteful revelations or follow every step of his labyrinthine conspiracy theories, The Biggest Secret is sure to forever change the way you look at the Amoco oil logo.

    The best preventive medicine against cancer, arthritis, heart disease and allergies may be packaged in the fruits and vegetables we consume daily. Gerson therapy is based upon just this belief. Conceived in the 1940s by the German naturopath Dr. Max Gerson, it is today a well-recognized alternative therapy. According to this therapy, one's diet must include generous amounts of fresh, organically grown fruits, vegetables and whole-grains along with 13 glasses of fresh fruit juice every day. Enemas, including coffee or chamomile enemas, are recommended on a regular basis to detoxify the body and replenish it.
