I tried the bible, it didn't really open me up to the paranormal or spiritually.

The bible is actually the most powerful book of them all.
The reason for this, is that it has centuries of accumulating and focusing emotional energies of a multitude of people who have gone over it's words
and verses, again and again, reinforcing the text.
We are all connected in the spiritual realm, and share a common lower mind. So, we can "tap in" to the content of that universal mind by contemplating
certain mantras, prayers, or simply reading certain verses in scriptures, when these "thoughts" have been in use for ages.
Every-time someone reads a phrase in some text, they re-charge the universal mind with their personal spiritual energy. They leave a residue there,
sometimes called a "thought form", like a "footprint" or "samskara" or "impression" in mental substance. The more people chanting or singing (Hebrew
text is sung) or repeating (like in Church service) the same words over and over, the stronger those thought forms or "impressions" become.
So, when you sit quietly by yourself, and read certain passages in the bible, over and over, you eventually tap into that built up impression, and
suddenly you'll "feel" a surge of emotional energy run through your body. That's when you know you've made contact, with the universal mind.
That universal mind is the source of all magic and psychic phenomena.
So, the best book you can start with is something like the bible, or another old scripture that's been in use for ages.
If you read "new words" that someone just invented, it has very little power to transport you into the mental state where you can access these things.
So, try some old texts first.
