One of these would solve the problem of accessing higher shelf books.

I started my journey by reading The Emerald Tablets of Thoth; afterwards you will develop your own unique perspective and uncover hidden abilities which laid dormant. Keep an open mind and an open third eye

Some books in my library that have helped with my TOTAL spiritual path are as follows:

1.New age hypnosis (had my first OBE while actually reading the book)
2.The power of now- Eckhart Tolle (helps clear alot of mental blocks)
3.A New Earth- Eckhart Tolle (a continuation of his previous book)
4.This is it (in depth info on 'oneness')
5.Mastering the art of astral projection (still havnt finished it 600+ pages)

6.Phychics for beginners (alot of good mental excersices and info)
7.Youtube (well, I dont have to tell you what youtube is good for
)

Good luck and dont give up.

Any of the books listed above are a good start.

Just remember though that spirit (higher self) is felt not spoken, so you must employ other spiritual techniques to help with your journey. Start with simple meditation exercises. Go to some classes if you need to.

Also learn some basic psychic protection exercises. Once you start to open up to new ways of being, you become more sensitive to other peoples energies - this is not necesarily a good thing, and can be overwhelming.

Peace Out - Good Luck

I started my journey 30 years ago at the age of 13 with the books of a buddhist monk called, T Lobsang Rampa. I would also recommend any of Eckhart Tolle books, ive recieved great spiritual insight from the works of Neale Donald Walsch, and if you want to go down the weird conspiracy route then go with our friend David Icke, who is so greatly loved and respected on this site.
(That was a NOT joke btw).

If you have a full day to not be disturbed then, you can try this technique.

Have a full day of activity like the beach, hiking, or pretty much anything outdoors, then go to bed early....I mean like 4 in the afternoon early. You can either set an alarm for around 11pm or use the tried and true native american method (drink two 8oz glasses of water before you go to sleep). When you go to sleep at 4pm, dont try and have anything happen, just relax and go to sleep. When you wake up around 11pm stay up for around 30-40minutes. Dont do anything strenous, clean the dishes or paint somthing or whatever, just stay somewhat relaxed. After that 30-40 minutes has passed go lay back down.

Here's when good ole meditation skills pay off. NOTE: if you cant relax the body, quiet the mind and focus, you will most likely be unsucessful at Astral projection, so practice meditation)
Relax, focus on your breathing/body, keep your mind awake while your body falls back to sleep.

After awhile you will most likely experience a buzzing sensation for alittle bit followed by paralysis. Dont be frightened!!! The paralysis is just a sign that your BODY is finally asleep while your mind is still alert (thats a good thing
). Stay relaxed and just 'go with it'. If a short time has passed without spontanious projection you can try to "mentally" roll out of your body. Make sure that you are NOT trying to actually move your physical body.

I highly suggest you practice meditation before even trying it as you will most likely be more sucessfull your first go around and wont become frustrated with any failed efforts.
