We are in the midst of a paradigm shift, a change from "what was" to "what will be." It turns out that many of the basics of this change are old - ancient, in fact - but have been corrected and advanced upon with modern scientific understandings on the nature of reality itself. As a result, it is the teaching from antiquity, combined with the latest discoveries, which comprise the core of what is called the "New Age."

If you know nothing about this New Age, or if you already know a great deal but want to find out about the sources, you need Ancient Teachings for Beginners by Douglas De Long. This book will not only answer your questions about ancient spiritual teachings, but also will allow you to put them into use, quickly and easily, to make positive changes in your life and the lives of those around you.

The book is a veritable whirlwind of information and techniques. It begins with a mystical history of civilization, stretching from the pre-Egyptian Atlanteans up through the current day. In this brief history you will also learn about the Greeks and Romans, Essenes and Gnostics, Hindus and Buddhists, and much more.

The sign over the ancient mystery schools reads "Know Thyself," so the next part of the book goes into exactly that. In the following chapters you learn about the aura and the chakras. You will discover how they affect you and interplay with your physical body. Special attention is paid to the third eye and the crown chakra.

The information here includes exercises and techniques for development of the aura and the chakras, including how to see and interpret the aura and its colors.

The high point of working with the aura and the chakras is the development of the kundalini energy. The benefits of this energy include stress reduction, spiritual growth, psychic development, increased sexual pleasure, heightened self-awareness, healing, increased vitality, slowed aging, increased mental acuity, and much more. The book includes five methods of arousing the kundalini and making it flow through the aura and chakras. Many people go to expensive courses to learn just this information, but you will get the information and the exercises needed to put the information into practice in this one book. Amazing!

With this information you will learn a lot about yourself. The next step is to go outside. So the book also covers techniques for working with angels and spirit guides, what is now know as "channeling." You discover all the aspects of channeling, including how to make sure you are psychically safe while doing it. The next step is to learn how to leave your physical body. This book also explains the secrets of astral projection.

Perhaps the biggest questions anyone has are what comes before conception and after death. You will find the answers here, too, as the secrets of reincarnation and karma are revealed.
Although this book is designed for beginners, everyone can find value in its broad subjects and complete explanations. It's for "beginners" because it is clear and easy to understand. If you're looking for more information about the ancient core of the New Age, you need this book.

With its focus on fun and frivolity, it's no wonder Beltane is one of the most festive Sabbats of the year for many modern Pagans. Held each year on or around May 1st, Beltane is a celebration of vitality, fertility, strength, and growth reflecting a blending of many traditions. It gets its name from the pre-Christian Celtic Bealtaine, which... read this article
