This page is intended to list, over time, many books and resources that pertain to the general subject of ‘spirituality’ as it is covered within this blog site and which have been part of the author’s experience.  These materials can generally be found on the Internet or at a local library.  Many libraries belong to a network which can access these books if they are not available at your local library.  I have no particular agenda behind the presentation of this listing.  The list merely represents some of the material that I have come across.  This page was initially written April 2, 2017.

The ‘Seth’ material.

The Seth material is a body of books and poems produced by author Jane Roberts who spoke for a disincarnate personality called Seth.  Her husband dutifully recorded her sessions with Seth and some two dozen or more of her books sit on my bookshelf.  These were produced mainly in the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s.  Jane died in 1984 but her dictation and the writing continued for some years following due to the vast amount of material she produced.  The following are a small portion of that material.

  • Seth Speaks; The Eternal Validity of the Soul.
  • The nature of Personal Reality.
  • Dreams, Evolution and Value Fulfillment; two volumes.

Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives         & Destiny of Souls:  More Case Studies . . . 

These two books are by Michael Newton who has spent a life time interviewing and recording sessions where individuals, under hypnosis in most cases, have recounted their experiences after a previous life and before this present life.  They present a mosaic of what ‘heaven’ or the spiritual world is really like, what they do there, how it is organized, and the interplay between physical and spiritual life.  These two books are intriguing, to say the least. 


Individual books on Near Death Experiences and other forms of contact with the spiritual world.

There have been a great many people who have had ‘spiritual’ experiences due to health conditions, operations, accidents, revelations, out-of-body experiences, and suicides.  Most have somehow revived and recounted their experiences, some have communicated in various ways from the other side.  You will need to assess the validity of each of their stories for yourself.
