Connect to Your Higher Self - Be Your Own Guardian Angel
Anama Miller - 2014
Have you ever observed a baby only a few days or weeks old? He is completely peaceful and quiet - he is present and connected. This baby is connected to his higher self and most of the time he is in that dimension rather than here. That is part of the magic we feel when we see such a small baby. We are drawn to him like a magnet; because he has that endless quality of the other dimensions we once had too. This book is designed to give you techniques and to teach how to open the bridge to this connection with your Higher Self and your inner guidance, so that you will live a more connected and happier life.
The Emerald Tablet 101: a modern, practical guide, plain and simple (The Ancient Egyptian Enlightenment Series)
Matthew Barnes - 2016
The manual consists of fourteen cryptic, symbolic statements that many have tried to decipher over the course of thousands of years. I believe the fourteen statements of the Emerald Tablet to be a symbolic guide to a far greater treasure than the conversion of lead into gold. I believe it to be, instead, a symbolic guide to the awakening of the human spirit. I believe it to be a guide to the conversion of a base and petty human being into an awakened soul, the likes of which we have seen in the Jesuses and the Buddhas of our world. In the Christian Bible, it is said that Adam fell into a deep sleep. Nowhere in that Bible does it say that he woke back up. The purpose of the Emerald Tablet, I believe, is that very awakening.
Original Kriya Yoga Volume I: Step-by-step Guide to Salvation
Rangin Mukherjee - 2017
Through a combination of mis-communication and intentional alteration, however, most of what is taught as Kriya Yoga today is far from what was originally taught, often to the detriment of sincere practitioners. In this short, but practical and experiential guide, Sri Mukherjee reveals the techniques of Kriya Yoga, as originally taught by Lahiri Mahasaya. Sri Mukherjee is the disciple of Sri Gyanendranath Mukhopadhyay (Mukherjee) who compiled the Pranab Gita from the teachings of his Guru, Swami Pranabanandaji. Swami Pranabanandaji is well known as the main disciple of Lahiri Mahasaya, and so what is made available here has not been altered through the distorting effect of formal organizations (which Mahasaya and Pranabanandaji both eschewed), but has been kept intact through the age-old method of direct guru-to-disciple transmission. Fearing the loss of the original Kriya Yoga as taught by Lahiri Mahasaya, Sri Mukherjee has generously written this book in order to record and share this most valuable of all human knowledge.
