Books about Dream Interpretation, Paranormal Abilities, Astrology and Spirituality
- School of Out-of-Body Travel. A Practical Guidebook | by Michael Raduga
- The practice of phase states of the mind is the hottest and most promising pursuit of the modern age. Unlike in the past, the notions of "out-of-body travel" and "astral projection" have already lost their mystical halo, and their real basis has been studied in minute detail from the most non-nonsense approach. Now, this phenomenon is accessible to everyone, regardless of their worldview. It is now known how to easily master it and apply it effectively. This textbook gives each and every person something that previously could only be dreamt about - a parallel reality and the possibility of existing in two worlds. This book is for pragmatic people who are not used to taking anything on faith or reading about empty theories. The book only deals with what works in practice, and nothing else.
- Sex And Dreams - The Language Of Dreams | by William Stekel
- Dr. Wm. Stekel's Language of Dreams, of which the first portion is herewith presented to the English reading professional ranks, is intended as a guide to the interpretation of the Unconscious for those who are concerned professionally with nervous disorders.
- The Interpretation Of Dreams | by Sigmund Freud
- In attempting a discussion of the Interpretation of Dreams, I do not believe that I have overstepped the bounds of neuro-pathological interest. For, on psychological investigation, the dream proves to be the first link in a chain of abnormal psychic structures whose other links, the hysterical phobia, the obsession, and the delusion must, for practical reasons, claim the interest of the physician. The dream (as will appear) can lay no claim to a corresponding practical significance; its theoretical value as a paradigm is, however, all the greater, and one who cannot explain the origin of the dream pictures will strive in vain to understand the phobias, obsessive and delusional ideas, and likewise their therapeutic importance.
- The Meaning Of Dreams | by Isador H. Coriat
- The new psychology of dreams, as elaborated by Freud, represents one of the greatest advances ever made in our knowledge of the human mind and of human motives. For abnormal psychology, dream-analysis can be compared only in importance with the discovery of the origin of species and of the factors of organic evolution in the field of biology. The analysis of dreams is not only of great theoretical value in the understanding of the unconscious but has its practical side as well, in giving medicine the most potent instrument which it has ever possessed in the treatment of certain functional nervous disturbances.
- Ten Thousand Dreams Interpreted, Or, What's In A Dream | by Gustavus Hindman Miller
- "Dreams are rudiments of the great state to come. We dream what is about to happen." -- Bailey
- Sleep And Dreams | by John Murray
- It is easy to spare books in these days of prolific authorship; and I fear it will hardly be considered a sufficient apology for my offering a superfluous book to the public, that I was impelled to do so by the request of partial friends. Yet I wish to say, that these Lectures, composed under many interruptions, were not designed for publication.
- Studies In Dreams | by Mary Arnold-Forster
- The author of the book modestly makes no claim to be a scientific explorer but only to be a recorder of her own dream experiences, who has been impelled "to stray a little beyond the province" assigned and "to attempt some partial explanation of the riddles that are met with." But the reader, I am sure, will find that she has scarcely done herself justice in this diffident attitude, for the accurate recording of observations accurately made is the basis of science and requires the development and possession of no common talent.
- Dreams And Their Meanings | by Horace G. Hutchinson
- With many accounts of experiences sent by correspondents and two chapters contributed mainly from the journals of the psychical research society on telepathic and premonitory dreams
- The Psychology Of Dreams | by William S. Walsh
- This volume was written with the interests of the general reader particularly in mind; for this reason the subject matter has been treated in a more or less popular style. With a view toward aiding sufferers from nervous affections, as well as toward promoting a better understanding of various normal and abnormal mental processes, an effort has been made to make the book as practical as possible.
- The Fabric Of Dreams: Dream Lore And Dream Interpretation, Ancient And Modern | by Katherine Taylor Craig
- This volume is written for the perusal of the unprejudiced. It is an appeal to those who neither affirm the infallibility of dreams, nor yet deny their significance as symbols, also to those persons who have given the subject no thought whatsoever, but who are nevertheless willing to listen impartially to the arguments of the old-fashioned dream interpreters and to the hypotheses of modern psycho-analysts. At first glance a vast distance seems to stretch between the desert of sterile scientific facts and the teeming jungle of riotous dreams, yet between these extremes winds many a temperate, pleasant path which the normal mind may follow if it will.
- About Dreaming, Laughing And Blushing | by Arthur Mitchell
- In ordinary circumstances we are made aware of the existence of such things as chairs and tables through the sense of sight; but chairs and tables may, in certain conditions, be accepted by the mind as existing where they have no existence. They do not, in that case, reach the mind through the eye. They may be said to be seen directly by the mind itself without being imaged on the retina. The eye plays no part in this kind of vision. The mind, in other words, may be said, in certain conditions, to see without the aid of the eye. But the things so seen have no reality...
- A History Of Dreams, Visions, Apparitions, Ecstasy, Magnetism, And Somnambulism | by A. Brierre De Boismont
- A philosophical physician said, in speaking of the first edition of this work: "If the author had been satisfied to treat the vast question of hallucinations as medical men usually treat a question of pathology, the medical press would have announced his monograph according to custom, with simple praises and very inoffensive criticisms; medical science would have numbered one more good work, and so the matter would have ended. But such has not been the case. M. Brierre de Boismont, in giving a less scholastic turn to his treatise, and introducing questions of historic psychology, has succeeded in electrifying both the press and the public...
- The Theory Of Dreams: In Which An Inquiry Is Made Into The Powers And Faculties Of The Human Mind | Robert Gray
- As they are illustrated in the most remarkable dreams recorded in sacred and profane history.
- The Literature And Curiosities Of Dreams | by Frank Seafield
- A Commonplace book of speculations concerning the mystery of dreams and visions, records of curious and well-authenticated dreams, and notes on the various modes of interpretation adopted in ancient and modern times.
- Dreams And The Unconscious: An Introduction To The Study Of Psycho-Analysis | by Charles Wilfred Valentine
- The new psychology of the unconscious, associated chiefly with the work of Freud, has suffered the fate of many new movements of thought. On the one hand it has raised a loud outcry on the part of some of those, not always well-informed, to whom its doctrines seem incredibly strange and unpleasant. On the other hand, it has been pushed to an extreme by some of its supporters, and its suppositions have been asserted as though they were proved facts; sweeping generalisations have been made prematurely, for example, in reference to the influence of sex on mental life.
- The Royal Book Of Dreams From An Ancient And Curious Manuscript | by Raphael
- It was towards the latter part of the summer of 182-, that I had occasion to traverse through the county of Somerset, upon a tour, partly of pleasure, and partly for scientific purposes. While sojourning for a few days in the vicinity of Bristol, I resolved to visit some of its most picturesque scenery; and, accordingly, I pursued my track along the western side of the river Avon, determined to trace once more the scenes of my youth, especially the extensive domains of the ancient manor hard by (denominated "the manor of Abbot's Leigh"), which, independent of the recollections imprinted on my mind, as being the chief theatre of my youthful "enactions" I well knew contained many rich objects of antiquarian research, well worthy the notice of the pedestrian who is attached to the memory and usages of the "olden time." To roe, I need scarcely add, the recollections the well-known scenery inspired, were fraught with the intensest interest...
- The Theory Of Dreams in Which an Inquiry is Made Into the Powers and Faculties of the Human Mind | by Robert Gray
- In which an inquiry is made into the powers and faculties of the human mind as they are illustrated in the most remarkable dreams seconded in sacred and profane history.
- Telepathy And The Subliminal Self | by R. Osgood Mason
- An account of recent investigations regarding hypnotism, automatism, dreams, phantasms, and related phenomena
- Human Personality And Its Survival Of Bodily Death | by Frederic W. H. Myers
- The book which is now at last given to the world is but a partial presentation of an ever-growing subject which I have long hoped to become able to treat in more adequate fashion. But as knowledge increases life rolls by, and I have thought it well to bring out while I can even this most imperfect text-book to a branch of research whose novelty and strangeness call urgently for some provisional systematisation, which, by suggesting fresh inquiries, further accumulation of evidence may tend as speedily as possible to its own supersession. Few critics of this book can, I think, be more fully conscious than its author of its defects and its lacunŠ; but also few critics, I think, have yet realised the importance of the new facts which in some fashion the book does actually present.
- Mysteries Of The Vital Element Dreams, Somnambulism, Trance, Vital Photography, Faith And Will, Anesthesia, Nervous Congestion And Creative Function | by Robert H. Collyer
- Modern spiritualism explained

- The study of the human soul as a psychic and physical entity, will be the science of tomorrow.
- Mind-Power: The Secret Of Mental Magic | by William Walker Atkinson
- We take the greatest pleasure in presenting this latest and best work from the pen of William Walker Atkinson. It embodies the essence of years of thought, study, and experiment on the part of its author whose original research, discoveries, and writings along these lines have given him his worldwide reputation as an authority. It is his Masterpiece. A portion of its material was used in two of the author's previous works, viz., "Mental Magic," and "Mental Fascination," both of which works were published by ourselves. Both of the said works are now practically out of print, and will be withdrawn from sale by us, as they will be superseded by this newer and more complete work. This foundation material has been edited; added to; changed; improved; and corrected by the author, in accordance with his increased experience and knowledge of the subject. Obsolete matter has been replaced by entirely new material, and the work is now strictly "up-to-date". It is encyclopaedic in extent and character, every phase of the subject being considered by the author and expressed in words charged with his dynamic vitality. It contains matter that well might have been expanded into several volumes.
- Sleep Psychologically Considered With Reference To Sensation And Memory | by Blanchard Fosgate
- In publishing the following Essay, the author is aware that the philosophy of mind has been the theme of gifted intellects through all civilized periods, and that, varied as its phases are, they have each elicited the closest investigation. The work is therefore submitted with great deference to the public. The reader will bear in mind that the subjects of the several chapters have not been examined with a view to their perfect history or phenomena, but have been introduced, more especially, with reference to the particular views proposed in the Introduction. In each, the leading object has been to collect facts and analyse combinations, the more clearly to elucidate, and the more perfectly to illustrate the view taken of that portion of psychology under consideration
- Phantasms Of The Living | by Edmund Gurney, Frederic W. H. Myers, Frank Podmore
- Phantasms of the Living, published in 1886, which embodies much of the early work of the Society for Psychical Research, and in particular much valuable discussion by its earliest honorary secretary, Edmund Gurney, has long been out of print. But as its value has been but little affected by subsequent investigations, and it still forms the basis on which much of the present-day work on telepathy, and especially on apparitions, rests, it is thought that a new edition is likely to be appreciated by the public. Had the authors been with us still, a new edition would no doubt have been brought up to date. New evidence would have been included, and the discussion might perhaps have been added to or diminished, to suit the new atmosphere which the book itself has helped to create. Changes of this sort I have not felt justified in attempting. The text is substantially as the authors left it with the exception of omissions for the sake of brevity in Chapters IV and XIII (indicated in their places), and no new cases have been introduced.
- Stage Hypnotism - A Text Book Of Occult Entertainments | by Prof. Leonidas
- I am not presenting this as a volume of rare English. My attempt has been to make it clear and descriptive. With that end in view I have used the narrative in most instances, supplementing the story with explanations of why I did these things. It may be found that other stage hypnotists and mind-readers will differ with me when it comes to my method of production. That will indicate merely that they and I are both original. I warn you all that there is to be nothing gained by imposing anything dangerous or uncalled for upon your hypnotic subjects.
- Palmistry For All | by Cheiro

- The Laws Of Scientific Hand Reading | by William G. Benham
- A practical treatise on the art commonly called Palmistry
- The Practice Of Palmistry For Professional Purposes | by C. de Saint-Germain
- Among the tens of thousands orf American readers who have given such a pleasant welcome to my syndicate articles and to my elementary work entitled PRACTICAL PALMISTRY." a large number have done me the honor of communicating with me with a view of increasing their knowledge of this most fascinating science. Many have even visited Chicago and requested me to give them personal and exhaustive instruction in Palmistry. I finally decided, a year ago, to comply with these solicitations, and have devoted a few hours, every day, to the teaching of the science rendered famous in this XIX. Century by the splendidly successful efforts of Desbarrolles and d"Arpentigny. Class after class attended my studio and received favorably whatever conscientious instruction my twenty-nine years of chi-rosophic studies entitled me to give them...
- The Pathway to Heaven on Earth | by Jenny Pearce
- The series of insights that have become this book are set out as I
got them, so that you too can share in the excitement of discovery and
the wonder of "getting it".
- The Essentials of Spirituality | Felix Adler
- Adler came to promote a philosophy which he termed Ethical Culture, an
essentially Kantian moral philosophy which prized public work and the
use of reason to develop ultimate ethical standards. He made use of
the ideas from his religion, the philosophy of Kant & Ralph Waldo
Emerson, mixed with certain socialistic ideas of his time. He believed
that the concept of a personal god was unnecessary and that the human
personality is the central force of religion, that different people's
interpretations of religions were to be respected as religious things
- The Awakening Of The Soul | Wisdom Of The East | by Paul Bronnle
- It is to two English scholars, father and son, Edward Pococke, senior and junior, that the world is indebted for the knowledge of one of the most charming productions Arabian philosophy can boast of. Generally looked upon as a subject of repulsive aridity, in its strange combination of the most heterogeneous philosophical systems, devoid of the grace and charm of attractive style, un-brightened by brilliancy of wit or spirit, Arabian philosophy has, for centuries past, been subject to sad and undeserved neglect...
- A Vision of Truth. The Soul's Awakening | by Adelaide Walther
- Having myself found the secret path and spiritual treasures I am more than eager to share these blessings with those still lost in the wilderness, but sadly do I realize, that with all my love outpoured, I can not lead another into the light of true happiness - "If that soul is not willing to go"
- The Nature Of Spiritual Existence, And Spiritual Gifts, Given Through The Mediumship Of Mrs. Cora L. V. Richmond | by G. H. Hawes
- The Fifteen Discourses comprising this work were delivered in the order here arranged, in San Francisco, during the spring and summer of 1883, and are published with the consent and approval of their authors. To those unfamiliar with spirit control it may be of some interest to know that Mrs. Richmond in all her public speaking is in a trance or unconscious state, the influencing spirit using the voice and controlling all the movements of the body with ease and grace. Every discourse is preceded by an appropriate prayer, and usually at the close a poetic control gives an impromptu poem upon a subject selected by the audience.
- Reincarnation, A Study Of The Human Soul In Its Relation To Re-Birth, Evolution, Post-Mortem States, The Compound Nature Of Man, Hypnotism, Etc | by Jerome A. Anderson
- These pages are intended to present, in as concise a form as possible, an outline of certain phenomena in nature, together with logical and philosophical deductions therefrom, which go to prove, first, the existence of a soul, and, second, the repeated incarnation of this soul in physical bodies. No phenomena will be considered except such as have been fully verified and accepted as a portion of the armamentarium of modern science. That there are vast classes of genuine phenomena not acknowledged as genuine by science is well known; and, although fully entitled to an appeal to these in support of our position, it has been thought best to pass them by, and to meet modern scientific agnosticism entirely upon the territory of its own facts...
- Psychosophy | by Cora Linn Victoria Scott Richmond
- These lessons are published, primarily, as a book of reference for those who have been members of the classes receiving them. The essential Teachings herein contained, have been given at various times and places through this same medium for the past twenty years, but always heretofore verbally, in private or semi-private classes, because it was necessary that those listening to them should continue through the entire course. A great demand, however, has recently sprung up in the public mind for some concise presentation of the Teachings as herein expressed. This volume is a careful compilation from verbatim reports of several courses of lessons, each containing the essential fundamental bases of the Teachings, but varying in manner of presentation and illustration.
- What Happens After Death? | by Leading Writers and Thinkers
- A Symposium by Leading Writers and Thinkers. "What happens after death?" is the most personal question there is, and this symposium from some of the most thoughtful and influential men of the day should add light to what is, perhaps, the greatest problem of all ages and the most vital. Opinions vary greatly, as the following titles show.

- Hindu spiritism soul transition and soul reincarnation. Exclusive instruction for the personal use of Dr. De Laurence's chelas (disciples) in hindu spiritism, soul transition, reincarnation, clairvoyancy and occultism
- Mahanirvana Tantra (Tantra of the Great Liberation) | Translated by Arthur Avalon (Sir John Woodroffe)
- THE Indian Tantras, which are numerous, constitute the Scripture (Shastra) of the
Kaliyuga, and as such are the voluminous source of present and practical orthodox
"Hinduism." The Tantra Shastra is, in fact, and whatever be its historical origin, a
development of the Vaidika Karmakanda, promulgated to meet the needs of that age.
Shiva says: "For the benefit of men of the Kali age, men bereft of energy and dependent
for existence on the food they eat, the Kaula doctrine, O auspicious one! is given" (Chap.
IX., verse 12). To the Tantra we must therefore look if we would understand aright both
ritual, yoga, and sadhana of all kinds, as also the general principles of which these
practices are but the objective expression.
- Karpuradistotram. Karpuradi Stotra Tantrik Texts Vol IX | by Arthur Avalon (Sir John Woodroffe)
- This celebrated Kaula Stotra, which is now translated from the Sanskrit for the first time, is attributed to Maha-kala Himself. The Text used is that of the edition published at Calcuttain1899 bytheSanskritPressDepository,witha commentary in Sanskrit by the late Mahamahopadhyaya Krishnantha Nyaya-panchAnana, who was both very learned in Tantra Shastra and faithful to his Dharma. He thus refused the offer of a good Government Post made to him personally by a former Lieutenant-Governor on the ground that he would not accept money for imparting knowledge.
- Studies In Saiva-Siddhanta | by J. M. Nallasvami Pillai
- The assemblage of papers that make up the present volume, records the harvest of twenty-years' ceaseless research in a field of philosophy and mysticism, by one who is acknowledged on all hands to be one of the most well-informed interpreters of the Tamil developments of the great Agamic school of thought...
- The Book Of Talismans, Amulets And Zodiacal Gems | by William Thomas, Kate Pavitt
- The subject of Talismans and Gems of the Zodiac covers a wide area, and the difficulty of arriving at a definite conclusion is increased because of the varying opinions between writers on these subjects as to the stones referred to, or intended by the Ancients, complicated still further by the different languages from which these records have been translated, and where Month or Zodiacal gems are referred to many of the writers are obviously unacquainted with Astrology or Astronomy.
- Divinity, The Choice of God | by Jeffrey Edwin Edelheit
- I began writing
the book several years ago as to share the feeling and experiences I was having through my
transition period. Like so many people, I went looking to find the answer to feelings that were
inside of me. Feelings that I could not find answers to or other people who could even remotely
understand what was going on inside of me. It was like having an awareness of the universe and
being caught in a body that I did not know what to do with...

- The Brihat Jataka Of Varaha Mihira | by N. Chidambaram Aiyar
- There is probably not one subject which is so ill-understood, which so many people pretend to know,and on which so many are prepared to express an opinion, as the subject of Astrology. The Indian proverb truly says that there is no man who is not a bit of a physician and an astrologer; and it is equally true that there is no subject which is so ill-understood as these two. The fact is that the broad medical and astrological principles are so many that everybody of necessity learns a few of these, but experiences a difficulty in mastering all of them.
- A Manual Of Astrology, Or The Book Of The Stars | by Raphael
- Which contains every requisite illustration of the celestial science; or the art of foretelling future events, by the influences of the heavenly bodies.
- The Influence Of The Zodiac Upon Human Life | by Eleanor Kirk
- The twelve signs of the Zodiac have always been supposed to represent the physical framework of man. This framework is but a vessel of breath, motion, and vibration, played upon by active thought-atmospheres, waves of sound and light, and positive and negative electromagnetic forces, in limitless activity. For ages it has been known that man's physical body was influenced by recondite or occult laws, and that to this influence could be traced the cause of the difference between individuals, between the lives of the intelligent and the ignorant, the happy and the unhappy, the good and the vicious, the useful and the useless...
- Astrology In A Nutshell | by Charles Henry Webber
- Designed to show the symbology and personification of astrology in the religious world and also in ancient forms of secret societies.
- Understanding Astrology | by Ezequiel Gonzalez
- Astrologers all over the world are using computers, astronomical
calculation programs and statistical programs to reevaluate the
traditional symbols, methods and procedures of Astrology. Neoastrology
is just one example of this new "scientific" trend. Does this
means that traditional Astrology is dead or bound to disappear?
I don't think so.

- Developing Mental Power | by George Malcolm Stratton
- Every teacher requires a working knowledge of the fundamental nature of the human mind. Without it teaching cannot be made either an interesting or a creative occupation. When psychologically uninformed, the teacher can operate on the mind of youth only in a formal and mechanical way, applying traditional and contemporaneous methods of procedure without much ability to adapt technique to conditions for the purpose of gaining predictable results...
