Most people in the West believe in a linear theory of time: there is a past, a present, and a future. In some other cultures there is a more circular notion to time. We are seen as living in one of many repeating cycles.
In astrology, these cycles take about 26,000 years and are associated with the signs of the zodiac. For example, we are now moving out of the Piscean Age and into the Aquarian Age.
In each period or cycle the valuable wisdom of the past is reinterpreted for the present. That's why Ancient Teachings for Beginners by Douglas De Long is such a vital book as we regain the old wisdom to use in the New Age.
The ancient teachings in this book are as fresh today as they were thousands of years ago. The methods of strengthening the aura, opening the chakras, and moving the kundalini are as appropriate today as they ever were. In fact, with people so short on time today, not having to spend years in mystery schools to learn these techniques makes this book more important than ever.
Today, many people channel spirits without any "filter" for unwanted entities. Channeling spirit entities and angels is an ancient tradition. This book shows you how to do it safely and quickly. It has four channeling techniques along with methods to prepare this practice.
With this book you'll also discover the ancient secrets of reincarnation and how to project your astral body.
Today, there is a crying need for spirituality. I don't think we can or should return to the past, but I do think it would be foolish not to learn from the past and reinterpret what is valuable for use in the future. This book can help you take that step, enhancing your own health, happiness, and spirituality for tomorrow. I hope you will take that step with me.

We understand that the physical world is a reflection of the spiritual world, and vice versa. And yet, after the ritual is over and... read this article
