Gregg Braden explains that evolution is not the whole story of humanity—and offers a new understanding of our origins. Human by Design invites you on a journey beyond Darwin’s theory of evolution, beginning with the fact that we exist as we do, even more empowered, and more connected with ourselves and the world, than scientists have believed possible.

New discoveries have led to more unanswered questions and created deeper mysteries when it comes to explaining our origin and existence. These discoveries reveal the following facts:

  • Fact 1. Our origin—Humans appeared suddenly on earth about 200,000 years ago, with the advanced brain, nervous system, and capabilities that set them apart from all other known forms of life already developed, rather than having developed slowly and gradually over long periods of time.
  • Fact 2. Missing physical evidence—The relationships shown on the conventional tree of human evolution are speculative connections only. A 150-year search has failed to produce the physical evidence that confirms the relationships shown on the evolutionary family tree.
  • Fact 3. New DNA evidence—The comparison of DNA between ancient Neanderthals, previously thought to be our ancestors, and early humans tells us that we did not descend from Neanderthals.
  • Fact 4. A rare DNA fusion—Advanced genome analysis reveals that the DNA that sets us apart from other primates, including in our advanced brain and nervous system, is the result of an ancient and precise fusion of genes occurring in a way that suggests something beyond evolution made our humanness possible.
  • Fact 5. Our extraordinary abilities—We are born with the capacity to self-heal, to self-regulate longevity, to activate an enhanced immune response, and to experience deep intuition, sympathy, empathy, and, ultimately, compassion—and to do each of these on demand. In this book,  Gregg Braden crosses the traditional boundaries of science and spirituality to answer the timeless question at the core of our existence—Who are we?—and to reveal science-based techniques that awaken our uniquely human experiences of deep intuition, precognition, advanced states of self-healing, and much more. Human by Design reveals that we’re not what we’ve been told, and much more than we've ever imagined.

Dr. Eben Alexander, author of Proof of Heaven, shares the next phase of his journey to understand the true nature of consciousness and how to cultivate a state of harmony with the universe and our higher purpose.

In 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander's brain was severely damaged by a devastating case of bacterial meningitis, and he lapsed into a weeklong coma. It was almost certainly a death sentence, but Dr. Alexander miraculously survived—and brought back with him an astounding story. During those seven days in coma, he was plunged into the deepest realms of consciousness, and came to understand profound truths about the universe we inhabit. What he learned changed everything he knew about the brain, mind, and consciousness and drove him to ask a question confounding the entire scientific community: How do you explain the origins of consciousness if it is not a byproduct of the brain?

His challenge relates to a revolutionary shift now underway within our modern scientific understanding. Ultimately, direct experience is key to fully understanding how we are all connected through the binding force of unconditional love and its unlimited power to heal. In Living in a Mindful Universe, Eben shares his insights into the true nature of consciousness. Embracing his radically new worldview, he began a committed program of personal exploration into non-local consciousness. Along the way, he met Karen Newell, who had spent most of her lifetime living the worldview he had only just discovered was possible. Her personal knowledge came from testing various techniques and theories as part of her daily routine. With Living in a Mindful Universe, they share techniques that can be used to tap into our greater mind, and explore how the power of the heart can enhance healing, relationships, creativity, guidance, and more. Using various modalities related to meditation and mindfulness described herein, you too can access that infinite source of knowing so vital to us all.

angelic origins of the soul

Angelic Origins of the Soul

Discovering Your Divine Purpose

Paperback Book
Publisher: Inner Traditions
Publication Date: October, 2017

Your Soul is a divine light originating within the Angelic Orders of Heaven. The Tibetan Book of the Dead speaks about the seven Lokas, or dimensions, the Soul travels through after death, while the Egyptian Book of the Dead refers to the Soul becoming one with the ever-renewing phoenix. Yet what is the phoenix but a symbol of our own Angelic Twin who resides in the highest realms, the essence of our Soul?

In this book, Tricia McCannon explains how to discover the angelic realms where the highest parts of yourself reside and become the catalyst for your own path of ascension. Exploring the Souls angelic origins, the Nine Orders of Angels, and the multi-dimensional landscapes of Heaven, McCannon takes you on the journey each Soul makes as it descends from the higher vibrational realms to arrive in the world of form.

Drawing from the perennial wisdom of the Gnostics, Tibetans, Egyptians, Buddhists, Hindus, Hebrew mystics, and the ancient Mystery traditions, she looks at what our ancient ancestors have to say about the nature and history of the Soul. She reveals how, once embodied, the Soul loses its ability to vibrate with the highest celestial levels causing it to forget its purpose. She addresses how our illusion of separation from Divine Oneness arises, causing us to move away from the Light and become wrapped up in the Shadow of fear and suffering. She explains the six stages of Soul Evolution we must pass through to heal the wounds of separation, reawaken to higher vibrations, and remember our Soul’s purpose, the reason your Soul chose this incarnation.

McCannon shares stories from those who have returned from the Otherside, tales of revelation, temples of learning, and crystal cities of light. Presenting the great Course Curriculum of the Soul, the lessons we must master to complete our missions on Earth, the author shows that by remembering our divine essence we can move beyond conflict and struggle to embrace the love and joy that reside eternally at the core of our being.

Whitley Strieber (Communion) and Jeffrey Kripal (professor of religion at Rice University) team up on this unprecedented new framing of inexplicable events and experiences. Rather than merely document the anomalous, these authors—one who popularized alien abduction and the other a scholar and “renegade advocate for including the paranormal in religious studies” (The New York Times)—deliver an exhilarating study of why the supernatural is neither fantasy nor fiction but a vital, authentic aspect of life.

Their suggestion? That all kinds of “impossible” things, from extra-dimensional beings to bilocation to bumps in the night, are a part of our natural world. But this natural world is immeasurably more weird, more wonderful, and probably more populated than we have so far imagined with our current categories and cultures.

Whitley and I explore the proposal that we are all embedded in a much larger, fiercely alive and richly conscious reality that is only, at best, indirectly addressed by everything that the human species has ever thought or believed

 

Our proposal? To venture outside the present houses of faith without forgetting those family homes or leaving the spirit behind. To embrace science in a new way, by promoting a more generous vision of the full human experience of reality that can embrace and ponder “more stuff,” especially the wild, fantastic stuff that shouts, glows, and zaps in these pages. And, above all, to understand, to really understand that we are already and always have been living in a super natural world, that we ourselves are highly evolved prisms or mediums of this super nature coming into consciousness, and that many of the things that we are constantly told are impossible are in fact not only possible but also the whispered secrets of what we are, where we are, and why we are here. This is a book about that Already World.

“Something is happening here, and we’re not sure what it is, but Kripal and Strieber have a clue: if there are aliens among us, they are ourselves, and we seem eager to make contact. This is a brilliant, provocative, and gripping new inquiry into the mysteries of time, space, and the human—and not so human—mind.” —Gary Lachman, author of The Secret Teachers of the Western World

Many different systems and traditions of magic, divination, spirituality, and esoteric religion exist, but at their core, they share the need for practitioners to safely and successfully experience the reality that lies beyond the physical senses.

Methods featured include chanting and working with crystals, chakras, oils, herbs, and potions, as well as a variation on the Middle-Pillar Ritual.

I share several techniques in this book that will give you control over your inner senses… Although to some degree, talent and potential do matter, the utility of your psychic senses is more a matter of practice and application. And by practice, I mean practice; the regular use of your psychic senses is the surest way to making them reliable and useful…

 

Pay attention whenever you marvel at something or feel awe. Wonder will feed the growth of your psychic skills and is an antidote for naysayers within and without.

“Having spent fifty of my eighty-eight years reading, writing, and actively taking part in all areas of the paranormal, I feel qualified to say to my students in all honesty, ‘I wish I had had this book when I was twenty.’… He has put before his readers what amounts to a complete course on the Magical Arts. As always, his style is clear, concise, and delivered without frills or irrelevancies. He writes with the authority coming from years of personal experience, tempered by the ability to know when to change, adapt, and take new and often uncharted direction.” —Dolores Ashcraft-Nowicki, director of studies, Servants of the Light

David Wilcock, who brought us the bestsellers The Source Field Investigations and The Synchronicity Key, has become one of the leading writers exploring ancient mysteries and new science. With The Ascension Mysteries, David takes readers on a surprising and enthralling journey through the history of the universe, exploring the great Cosmic Battle surrounding our own Ascension.

Through his contact with a positive higher intelligence behind the UFO phenomenon, groundbreaking scientific information, and data from high-ranking government whistle-blowers, David reveals that the earth is now on the front lines of a battle that has been raging between positive and negative extraterrestrials for hundreds of thousands of years. The Ascension Mysteries explores the towering personal obstacles David overcame to unlock the great secrets of our universe and looks ahead to what this battle means for each of us personally. By unifying ancient texts from a variety of religions with scientific data and insider testimony, David presents a stunning conclusion—that Earth is on the verge of a massive cosmic event that will transform matter, energy, consciousness, and biological life as we now know it and will utterly defeat the great villains of our time.

The great villains in our planetary script constantly fill the headlines with fear and trauma. Terrifying media, presenting horrors such as the threat of mass destruction, triggers a morphine response that get us high—which I have termed “fear porn.” Some people are then influenced to abuse others, whereas other get high from feeling victimized. I feel the best way to understand this phenomenon and deactivate the system is to study the personal testimony of someone who has identified the addiction and recovered from it. Breaking this habit, I believe, is the core of the ascension process, and it is the main reason why I am sharing so much of myself with you in this book

 

The only way to break the trauma addiction is to learn to love and protect yourself, and then to be able to forgive those who have harmed you… The higher beings working with us know every twist and turn of the path, from the brightest to the darkest, and can help us out of the most impossible-seeming paradoxes.

Wilcock takes the time to connect the dots between the human species and the rest of the cosmos.

 Channeler Paul Selig presents the second work in his acclaimed Mastery Trilogy. The Book of Truth casts your relationships—and what they reveal about you—in a dramatic and radical new light. The channeled literature of Paul Selig—who receives clairaudient dictation from unseen intellects called the Guides—has quickly become the most important and celebrated expression of channeling since A Course In Miracles rose to prominence in the 1970s.

Selig’s previous trilogy of channeled wisdom—I Am the Word, The Book of Love and Creation, and The Book of Knowing and Worth—won a large following around the world for its depth, intimacy, and psychological insight. The first book of his new Mastery Trilogy, The Book of Mastery, likewise “rang the bell.” Now, Selig continues the "Teachings of Mastery" with the widely anticipated second volume in his new series: The Book of Truth.

You experience your world, you see, through the senses, and the senses have form in the bodies you hold. The actualization of what you are happens in your entire being, but the way your experience it, finally, in consciousness and in body, must utilize the senses because that’s how you are informed by the manifested world.

 

Now the senses you hold have in many ways been limited by what they have been conceived of by others, and the True Self has access to information and experience that bypasses the systems of agreement that mankind has gotten used to. As we speak through Paul, we bypass his systems in order to meet you through the senses. You feel the energy or you hear the words. You comprehend the text through the eyes in your head…

 

You are still in exchange with what we are, even though the what we are exists outside of form, as you understand form.

Now if you wish to know what we are, the Divine that we are, you may meet us where we are. But in order to do that, you must actually acclimate to the vibratory frequency that we operate as. Paul’s system, you see, has been acclimated, and will continue to be, to hold the vibration that comes in language for the good of the student.

Written by the author of The Secret History of the Worldan underground bestseller for years—The Sacred History takes us on a captivating journey through the great myths of many ancient civilizations to the astounding discoveries of the modern era. The Sacred History is the epic story of human interaction with angels and other forms of higher intelligence, starting from Creation all the way through to the operations of the supernatural in the modern world.

What emerges is an alternative history of great men and women, guided by angels or demons, and the connection between modern-day mystics and their ancient counterparts. This spellbinding narrative brings together great figures— such as Krishna, Moses, Buddha, Elijah, Mary and Jesus and Mohammed—and stories from African, Native American and Celtic traditions.

Woven into this is an amazing array of mystical connections, including the surprising roots not only of astrology and alternative medicine but also of important literary and artistic movements, aspects of mainstream science and religion and a wide range of cultural references in modern cinema, music and literature.

This book of true stories shows how they can tell us things about the deep structure of the human experience.

Stories about otherworldly patterns and mystic traces can sensitize us to patterns like these in our own experience. They encourage attentiveness to complex, subtle, inner events which, if idealism provides an accurate picture of the world, are at the same time experiences of the inner workings of the world and evidence for the great forces that weave together to create, maintain and move it. The stories in this book have been chosen to help bring such patterns into focus.

Philosophical, passionate, entertaining, and filled with gorgeous illustrations, The Sacred History is a remarkable repositioning of ancient knowledge in such a way that we see truth through another lens.

Let us now gaze into the great vistas opened up by these mystics and visionaries, the panoramas of armies of angels, dynasties of angels, angelic leaders, angelic heroes and, yes, bad angels. In what follows we will see galaxies expanding and collapsing and angelic civilizations rising and falling.

 

Are the battles of angels the product of human fantasy, as the atheists insist?

 

Or are our lives and loves echoes of the lives and loves of angels?
