Disclaimer: All of this is subjective opinion only.
The most popular books on the subject are not necessarily the best. Lynn McTaggarts "The Field" and "The Intention Experiment", while interesting
for skeptics, dont do much to further one´s skills because she spends entire books trying to soothe her own doubts by trying to find scientific
verification of every detail.
Classical Literature such as "Think and Grow Rich" or the Murphy books are somewhat outdated and not holistic/integral enough to really deeply drive
the message home.
Then there are loads and loads of what I call copycat-books. These are books where the author has merely copied what others have already written. The
books are accordingly shallow and non-authentic. Shakti Gawain, Barbel Mohr (and sorry to say, even Wayne Dyer) come to mind.
Then there are the old occult books which are overloaded with unneccesary ritual and belief-system.
Then there are the books which act as an introduction to various new-age-cults and overpriced workshops.
Then there´s the books published by scam-artists and marketing-hounds. They are written in a sensationalist tone of voice, with the intent to sell
rather than educate.
So, whats left after discarding all of that? These are some topic-related booktitles that were helpful to me and to the people I recommended them to
(google or amazon them yourself):
The Astonishing Power of Emotions
Ask and it is given
Bashar: Blueprint for a Change
Power vs. Force
Transcending the levels of Consciousness
Parallel Universes of Self
The Holographic Universe
Initiation into Hermetics
Journey of Souls
Destiny of Souls
The Nature of Personal Reality
Reality Shifts (this might only be available as an e-book, not sure).
That should be enough to master the art without having to spend too much or anything at all for workshops. No necessity of sending me U2Us asking for
my books either, as I choose to use ATS anynomously.
EDIT: Of course, recognizing the fallacies as described in the opening post, does not come from these books either, but only from personal experience
and serious contemplation.
