What are some of the witchy books that influenced you?

My husband has a library full of metaphysical books. They aren't all witchy, but they are spiritual. I've either read through or skimmed all of them. Some of them were just too dry for me to really read in depth. But my favorites were:

The Celestine Prophesy by James Redfield and sequels - Though these are fictional stories they discuss synchronicity and all of the different insights the author has. The author talks about twelve insights.
  1. A critical Mass - This is about society having a spiritual awakening. I think we can already see this. According to the American Religious Identification Survey (Aris) in 1990 only 8 members of those surveyed were Wiccan. However in 2008 342 said they were Wiccan. That is a significant increase! Now if we look at other religions we see a slight drop from previous years to 2008. I think as the years go by we are seeing that people are either frustrated with organized religion and are identifying themselves as agnostic or atheist, or we see them entering Pagan society.
  2. The Longer Now - This insight talks about coming together as a global society. I don't see that yet. But its a positive goal.
  3. A Matter of Energy - This insight has taught me a lot about how energy works and our own aura. Every single action we take involves energy. When we interact with others we are sharing energy. I think this insight is the most important lesson this book teaches.
  4. The Struggle for Power - This insight talks about the different ways we struggle for power and how we can avoid doing that. Ever have someone your around that just leaves you feeling drained every time you talk to them? Well this insight teaches us why, and how we can avoid this draining feeling. Or doing the draining ourselves!
  5. The Message of the Mystics - This talks about the inner connection with the divine.
  6. Clearing the Past - This discusses how we can stay connected to the divine even under stress.
  7. Engaging the Flow - This insight teaches us about synchronicity and how we can keep the flow of positive energy in our life.
  8. The Interpersonal Ethic -This insight talks about increasing the frequency of guiding coincidences. Of being able to uplift each person in your life because you are living your lessons.
  9. The Emerging Culture - This insight talks about ending the cycle of birth and death and becoming fully our spiritual selves.
  10. Holding the Vision - This insight tells us that our common goal is to hold the vision for the future in working toward becoming spiritual culture.
  11. Extending Prayer Fields - This insight teaches us how we can attain our goal by the power of prayer, positive thinking, religious scripture, etc...
  12. The Hour of Decision - I admit, I haven't read this last insight! If you have, do share. :)

  1. Sounds like some good books. I haven't read any of them. I am very familiar with the subjects of books 3 & 4. I would love to see #2 come true. Can't wait for #1 to happen. I think it has begun.
    I'm not a wiccan so don't know of any wiccan books but one of my absolute favorite spiritual author is Eckhart Tolle. Any book by that man is bound to move you.

  2. lol, I so did not add little summaries with my book list. Nice to see that you did. Blessings! ~)O(~
