Recommended Reading

Louise's books— of course!
Here is a list of books that have been meaningful to Louise through the years, and useful in her work with students and clients.

Good Spirituality Primers

A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
[Louise recommends this book to everyone. To live more moment of each day in alignment with the Source, one must learn to differentiate the mind thoughts that represent the Ego-self (trying desperately to run the show!) — from those originating from the Authentic Self. Eckhart assures us that simply observing the moments when the Ego-self takes charge is an indicator that we've come back into the present moment, and back to our authentic self — through which Divine energy (the miracles and the magic) — can flow!]

The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav
[This is another book that Louise always recommends. Years ago, Gary asked Louise to coordinate a group of therapists in the Bay Area of CA who had reached him, all with a similar response — "I've always felt that there is something missing from traditional therapy — dealing with the soul!"]

The Tao of Pooh and the The Te of Piglet by Benjamin Hoff
[These are delightful books that frame Taoist principles in the context of the classic children's series, Winnie the Pooh.]

The Power of Premonitions: How Knowing the Future Can Shape Our Lives by Larry Dossey

Astral Projection

Journeys Out of the Body by Robert Monroe
This book contains the author's earliest and simplest method for pre-launch and astral lift off that Louise used for years in classes and workshops. Robert Monroe went on to create the leading-edge Monroe Institute in VA.

Dream Interpretation

The Dream Game by Ann Faraday
[Louise used this as a resource in her earliest metaphysics classes. The process used for interpretation is simple, clear and very useful, as opposed to dream interpretation resources that give a list of symbols and simplistic definitions.]

"Channeled" Sources

Louise believes that the best indicator as to the authenticity of a "channel" (one who brings through wisdom from higher, non-physical energies) is the degree to which the information empowers and enlightens others. A true channel's messages will resonate with the soul and convey life-enhancing and life-expanding principles in clear, concise (and often humorous) words, rather than lofty or irrelevant information.

Ask And It Is Given and other books channeled through Esther Hicks
["Abraham" is a group of higher energies that teach principles of manifestation and empowerment in delightful ways that relate directly to our daily lives, offering solutions that really make sense and are worth applying. Louise often refers to the "Scale of Emotions" included in this book, demonstrating how our various emotions influence our degree of alignment with "Source energy."]

The Seth Material and other books channeled through Jane Roberts
The Nature of Personal Reality
[This book is the equivalent of Metaphysics 202! It covers detailed information concerning the soul and...the nature of this reality!]

Messages from Michael transcribed by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro
[This is another book that Louise used in her earliest classes. It presents a unique and comprehensive system that defining distinct soul groups and specific roles that various souls will take on through many incarnations.]
