Following up on her prior book titled Psychic Development: Sight Beyond Sight Using Clairvoyance Safely the author now takes it a step further to focus on voluntary clairvoyance which is the positive aspect of the whole process while the involuntary is not as safe. In fact a lot of the true psychics state that to do voluntary clairvoyance one has to practice healthy and good living and be generous. One also has to be ready to access one own psyche to be able to ´´see clearly.´´ This book covers all of that and more and is an extremely interesting topic to learn more about. For individuals that are interested in these types of topics this book is the perfect one for them. Despite the fact that science denounces these practices as being unfounded there are enough examples provided to get the mind thinking that this may not be the case. It is a must have for anyone that may be studying the topic and needs some additional material or for those that have a vested interest in learning all that they can so they can either understand someone that they know who says they are clairvoyant or think they are clairvoyants themselves. 1.

People who have stopped reading the Bible or never even read it before say about The Mirror, ´´I have never read anything that touched me so deeply, it is a brand new Bible, I cannot wait to give it to all my friends!´´ The Mirror Bible is a paraphrase from the original Greek text. While the detailed shades of meaning of every Greek word have been closely studied, this is done taking into account the consistent context of the entire chapter within the wider epistle, and bearing in mind the full context of Jesus as the revealer and redeemer of the image and likeness of the invisible God in human form, which is what the message of the Bible is all about. To assist the reader in their study, I have numerically superscripted the Greek word and corresponded it with the closest English word in the italicized commentary that follows. This is to create a direct comparison of words between the two languages. Many words used in previous translations have adopted meanings in time that distract from the original thought. Individual words can greatly influence the interpretation of any conversation. For years deliberate as well as oblivious errors in translations were repeated and have empowered the religious institutions of the day to influence, manipulate and even abuse masses of people. Consider the word metanoia, consisting of two components, meta, together with, and nous, mind, suggesting a radical mind shift. This word has always been translated as ´´repentance,´´ which is an old English word borrowed from the Latin word, penance. Then they added the ´´re´´ to get even more mileage out of sin consciousness. Re-penance. This gross deception led to the perverted doctrines of indulgences, where naive, ignorant people were led to believe that they needed to purchase favor from an angry god. Most cathedrals as well as many ministries were funded with guilt money. The Bible is a dangerous book! It has confused and divided more people than any other document. Scriptures have been used to justify some of the greatest atrocities in human history. People were tortured, burned to death and multitudes murdered based on somebody´s understanding of the scriptures! Jesus, Paul and believers throughout the ages faced their greatest opposition from those who knew the scriptures. If it is such a dangerous document, how does one approach the book? The Mirror unveils the Incarnation Code as the key that unlocks the mystery message of scripture. The romance of the ages is revealed here.
What if everything you think you know about Jesus is wrong? In The Jesus Papers, Michael Baigent reveals the truth about Jesus´s life and crucifixion. Despite, or rather because of, all the celebration and veneration that have surrounded the figure of Jesus for centuries, Baigent asserts that Jesus and the circumstances leading to his death have been heavily mythologized. As a religious historian and a leading expert in the field of arcane knowledge, Baigent has unequaled access to hidden archives, secret societies, Masonic records, and the private collections of antiquities traders and their moneyed clients. Using that access to full advantage, Baigent explores the religious and political climate in which Jesus was born and raised, examining not only the conflicts between the Romans and the Jews, but the strife within the different factions of the Jewish Zealot movement. He chronicles the migrations of Jesus´ family, his subsequent exposure to other cultures, and the events, teachings, and influences that were most likely to have shaped his early years. Baigent also uncovers the inconsistencies and biases in the accounts of the major historians of Jesus´ time, including Josephus, Pliny, and Tacitus. The enduring influence of these accounts in forming our most common conceptions of Jesus reveals that spin is not a new phenomenon. Taking us back to sites that over the last 20 years he has meticulously explored, studied, and in some instances excavated for the first time, Baigent provides a detailed account of his groundbreaking discoveries. The evidence he has uncovered has lead him to make shocking new assertions that threaten the conventional account of Jesus´ life and death and shake the very foundation of Western thought, based as it is upon the assumption of Jesus´s divinity. Ultimately, his investigation raises the hope that we may gain a new understanding of Jesus. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Baigent.

Who are the Men in Black? Do they really exist? Let´s find out! Relatively little is known about the Men in Black, also known as MIB, yet the scant few details that have surfaced are enough to send chills up your spine. The eyewitness accounts of their visits, as fleeting as they are, seem to punch us in the gut as soon as we hear them. These narratives play upon our most unsettling fears and sinking suspicions. Indeed, these strange, goose-bump-inducing maestros of mystery seem to be purposefully playing upon our fears like a finely feathered fiddle. These mysterious figures are notorious for their ability to raise our emotions of dread and anxiety to a fever pitch. Those who’ve undergone the MIB treatment say this is why they suddenly lose their desire to speak out about paranormal events they had witnessed. Did you see something strange in the sky? Do you want to tell all your friends about how amazing it was? Well - a few words from the Men in Black and you may never speak of it again! If they are working for the US government, then the American-intelligence apparatus is much more sophisticated and farther reaching than even Edward Snowden could have imagined. But most who encounter the Men in Black walk away with the sinking suspicion the mystery of these entities goes much deeper than the deepest of deep state secrets. Whatever the case may be, you won’t find an audiobook with as detailed a history of this incredible phenomenon anywhere else. So, before the MIB decide to confiscate it, go ahead and listen through this audiobook!
