Awakening 2021 Summer Reading List
Summer is upon us, and now is the time to learn and try new things and open our minds to different perceptions. One of the best ways I have found to shift one's thinking pattern is to read a new book, as it has the ability to transport you to places you have never thought to venture. Below are seven books I have read that I felt have guided me in my journey, and have the ability to propel a spiritual awakening. The books are listed in an order I feel allows one to travel upwards in the intensity of information and ease into new concepts. As so much continues to change rapidly around us, find time for yourself, turn off your tv and pick up a book. Refresh your mind and open it up to something new.
The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
This was one of those books I almost didn’t read and I am so glad backtracked on that decision. I often shy away from religious books just out of personal preference, but this book was presented to me as a gift from a family friend who swore up and down that I would love it. And love it I did, I felt a true sense of the Divine Feminine awaken in me when I read The Red Tent. Anita Diamant structures the life of Dinah, a sister of the 12 sons of Jacob often left out of the bible. Her story is told beautifully, and her tragic, violent life shines a light on the inequality of women in the biblical world. The Red Tent, is a New York Times bestseller and the basis of the A&E/Lifetime mini-series.
“The Red Tent begins with the story of the mothers--Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah--the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that sustain her through childhood, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land. Dinah's story reaches out from a remarkable period of early history and creates an intimate connection with the past.”
2. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
The Alchemist is a book I have recommended to fellow readers of all ages. In fact, as a middle school teacher, it was my required reading for all 8th-grade students (and often their favorite book of the school year). Even thinking about re-reading this story gives me goosebumps; is a heartwarming journey that leaves you filled with love and positive energy.
“Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.”
3. The Vortex by Esther and Jerry Hicks/ Abraham Hicks
The work of Abraham Hicks was something I came across many years after having read “The Secret”. I felt that “The Secret” was an interesting book, but lacked depth and left me with more questions than answers. The work of Esther and Jerry Hicks has similar origins but is manifested in channeling an entity called Abraham, and from this much advice is given on ways to change your vibrational reality. The book, “The Vortex” focuses on the relationships around us and how we can alter our thoughts to manifest what we want most in life. I recommend checking out their youtube manifestation videos as well, I felt they did help with teaching how to change your vibration at a moment's notice, something very empowering in itself.
“This book uncovers myriad false premises that are at the heart of every uncomfortable relationship issue, and guides you to a clear understanding of the powerful creative Vortex that has already assembled the relationships you have desired. Abraham will show you how to enter that Vortex, where you will rendezvous with everything and everyone you have been looking for.
Abraham says: “It is our desire to help you to solve the mystery of those seemingly impossible relationships; to sort out the details of joyously sharing your planet with billions of others; to rediscover the beauty of your differences; and, most of all, to reestablish the most important relationship of all: your relationship with the Eternal, Non-Physical Source that is really you. . . “
4. The Three Waves of Volunteers and the New Earth by Dolores Cannon
When I started doing past life regressions with QHHT practitioner Sarah Breskman Cosme, I had no idea who Dolores Cannon was, in fact, I had no idea what QHHT was either. I had a good friend that I trusted and tried something new, and when our journey to Atlantis was finally written down and published, I found time to read some of Dolores Cannon's work. Probably not something I would have appreciated before I began QHHT, but I now find it very confirming to read through her collected works and see where her work left off and ours picked up in many ways. Of the books of hers I have read, this one has stuck out the most to me. I highly suggest giving it a glance and seeing if you relate to any aspects of the past life regressions presented.
“In 1945 when the atomic bombs, our "protectors" and "watchers" in outer space saw that Earth was on a collision course with disaster. The prime directive of non-interference prevented them from taking any action, but then they came up with a brilliant plan to save Earth and assist her in her ascension. They couldn't interfere from the "outside," but maybe they could influence from the "inside." So the call went out for volunteers to come and help. "Earth is in trouble - who wants to volunteer?" Dolores Cannon, through her hypnosis work has discovered three waves of these volunteers. Some have come direct from the "Source" and have never lived in any type of physical body before. Others have lived as space beings on other planets or other dimensions. Because all memory is erased upon entry to the Earth dimension, they do not remember their assignment. Thus these beautiful souls have a difficult time adjusting to our chaotic world. These souls have a vital role to play as they help all of the rest of us ascend to the New Earth.”
5. A HYPNOTIST'S JOURNEY TO ATLANTIS By Sarah Breskman Cosme
Come dive into the past as we regress our way back to the ancient worlds of Atlantis and Lymuria in the debut novel of QHHT Level 3 Practitioner Sarah Breskman Cosme. Using the past life regression techniques of Dr. Brian Weiss and Dolores Cannon, Sarah tapped into long-forgotten knowledge about these ancient places as well as our origins on Earth.
“A Hypnotist’s Journey to Atlantis is more than just a journey back in time to a lost civilization; it is a journey back in time for the soul. Some call it a divine power, while others call it fate, but what happened when two friends unknowingly ventured into the world of past life regression hypnosis can only be described as destiny… and if you are now finding this book in your hands, it’s likely your destiny to read it, too. In 2018, in hopes to mitigate the pain from a medical disorder involving the swelling of her brain, Jen, a young mom of three agreed to be hypnotized by her friend Sarah, but what happened next could not have been predicted by either of them. Through a series of past life regression sessions was the discovery of a seemingly forgotten world, the civilizations of Atlantis and Lymuria, ancient and foreign continents in which Jen had lived first as royalty and eventually imprisoned. Over the course of multiple lives, she had struggled and failed to tell the truth about our otherworldly origins and the truth of what happened to those forgotten civilizations. Together, Sarah and Jen discovered that they had been called upon in this lifetime to share this knowledge now, and it was through the release of this history, and the retelling of her traumas, that Jen was able to dramatically heal her brain to the bewilderment of her doctors and medical community. Suddenly, Sarah’s hypnotherapy practice began attracting more and more people from all walks of life with one commonality; they were all able to recall nearly identical experiences in Atlantis and Lymuria.”
6. Child Of The Universe by JLF Sullivan
“Child of the Universe' is a deeply personal story for me. In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, I found myself struggling to rebuild my home, business, and health. In all of this mess, a friend offered to help me through a form of hypnosis that heals the body and mind as you unravel your past incarnations. The resulting healing journey is the basis for my book, and it serves as the companion novel for “A Hypnotist’s Journey To Atlantis,” the book my practitioner, Sarah Breskman Cosme, wrote about our QHHT sessions and experience.
“Derived from a past life regression hypnosis experience (QHHT), JLF Sullivan recounts in her debut novel the tumultuous lifetime of Kala, Queen of an ancient civilization lost forever under a cataclysmic wave. In the chaos of her people’s demise, Kala is abducted and taken to the island of Atlantis and experimented on for decades in search of an ancient power inherited from her otherworldly ancestors. “Child of the Universe” unfolds an alternative history of our beginnings on this planet and departs as a warning of the apocalyptic parallels surrounding us as we embark into an apprehensive future: “Perhaps it was best that this story remained locked away within me since the great cataclysms. But now my story can no longer stay buried, it must rest once and for all. It is my hope that by sharing this with you, my story will free us from this cycle of destruction we have become entangled in...Maybe you too have dreamt of the great wave of Amun, it’s towering greatness only to become your watery tomb. Or perhaps the mysteries surrounding the destruction of Atlantis have pulled your attention time and time again. It is my greatest wish that we may come to remember and understand our lost history so we may break free from the amnesia surrounding our humble beginnings. There is something you cannot deny, something that you have felt for all your days that tells you that you are connected to something greater. The lives we live now and those of the long-forgotten past will begin to show their true relationship as we together journey back to the lands of Amun and Atlantis.”
7. Mastering Old Earth by Conversations With Heaven On Earth
This is the book I am currently reading and I am finding it beyond fascinating. “Mastering Old Earth” has been recently published and is available for free from Conversations with Heaven On Earth, a Youtube channel created by New Zealand-based QHHT Practitioner Joanne Honey Thomas. Jo’s book has been created to provide support and guidance for those on Earth after “The Event,” to understand Old Earth. I have deeply resonated with this book and find its timing to be a perfect match for what many of us are experiencing during these drastic changes in the world around us. Jo shared with me that she channeled this book to give those who need it perspective on their paths forward on Old Earth. “Mastering Old Earth is not my personal information, the content is giving hope to others in a very challenging environment. The concept of Old Earth is still energetically so dense. The significance is extremely important to master for our future lives.”
