12 New Age Fiction Books You Can Read Right Now

There’s not enough new age fiction out there.

I read a thoughtful Writer’s Digest article on why the world needs more new age fiction.  There isn’t many I can quickly think of from the top of my head.

Sure, there’s Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist and James Redfield’s The Celestine Prophecy, but what else?

There has to be more.

Finding new age fiction books is hard (for me, at least). You can find thousands of new age nonfiction books, but fiction ones are rare Pokémon in the safari zone. It takes forever!

Going through Goodreads, Amazon, new age publishers, and new age authors’ websites, I found 12 new age fiction books you can read right now:

1. The Fifth Sacred Thing by Starhawk

BOOK REVIEW: “Solomon’s Angels”

 Image result for solomon's angels

 

New age writer Doreen Virtue creates a decent story about King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba in Solomon’s Angels.  The book has interesting new age insights but the romance is questionable.

Makeda’s Journey

The book follows Makeda’s trip to Israel to meet King Solomon. She repeatedly dreams about a mysterious man only for her deceased mother’s spirit to interrupt it.  Makeda later understands her mother’s intentions; she is only meant to be with King Solomon.

However, Makeda instantly falls in love with Hiram, Solomon’s top architect. Now she must decide whether she follows fate or create her own.

Meanwhile, the Queen of Sheba learns more of magical origins and gains esoteric wisdom from Solomon’s angelic advisors.

Where’s the Love?

The Academy Awards oscars academy awards looking searching GIF

Solomon’s Angels does a better job as a general new age fiction than it does as a romance.

I didn’t feel the love between Makeda and Solomon. The relationship felt forced and one-sided.  Makeda was too busy eyeing Hiram while Solomon was all over her like a lovesick puppy.

I get it, Makeda’s only seventeen. She’s keeping her options open.

Seriously, I wished this novel was longer. I’d rather see the couple endure more obstacles and share more tender moments together.

Conclusion

After all, Solomon’s Angels was my first dive into new age fiction.

For those who absolutely love esoteric knowledge,  vibrations and sacred geometry are discussed in this book.

Despite the lackluster romance, I enjoyed learning the biblical trivia. For instance, Solomon was the son of Bathsheba and David, defender of Goliath.  David sent Bathsheba’s husband to be killed in a battle after laying eyes on her.

You wouldn’t find that in the kids-friendly bible!

“Imagining The World Into Existence” BOOK REVIEW

Image result for imagining the world into existence

 

“The mind is but a reflection of the mind of God, and both God and man possessed the ability to use that greater mental power.” – Normandi Ellis

What would do if you read a book revealing you have the same powers as a god?

Normandi Ellis’ Imagining the World into Existence is an insightful look into ancient Egyptian mysticism. The early Egyptians strongly believed they were no more different than their gods in terms of creative powers. Creation, the power of thought, and the role of consciousness plays major roles in this book.

In addition, these themes reminded me of The Kybalion, a text claimed to be written by the legendary figure Hermes Trismegistus.

Considered to be a reference manual to ancient consciousness, I’ve expected Imagining the World would provide lessons and exercises applying the timeless spiritual wisdom into my daily life.

The book was completely different from my expectations. It’s packed with mixed subjects on consciousness awareness, myths, and priests’ rituals. Even though they do correlate with each other, this book seems like three books jammed into one.

Overall, the extra research Ellis compiled into Imagining the World was indeed educational. I did receive the information I was looking for.

The Power of Thought

 egyptian GIF

The ancient Egyptians believed Ptah, the god of creation, created the world with pure thought. The gods Thoth and Atum didn’t have parents; they thought themselves into existence.

The source of these gods’ creations is merely thought. Without thought, nothing would manifest into the physical plane.

The Egyptians also believed Egypt was made in the image of heaven. Therefore, the idea of everything from their pyramids and to their sacred texts came from a higher plane of existence. Ellis writes the following quotes:

“Thought precedes action.”

 “Life already exists before the physical act of creation.”

“The material world is made through work on the mental plane.”

 Mental existence comes before it reaches into its physical form. We can become powerful beings with our imaginations. Of course, we can’t physically shoot laser beams from our eyes and run faster than the speed of light easily if we imagined it.

Still, every one of us have the power to change things with our thoughts.

Change Your Mind, Change Your Reality

 trippy space life trip video game GIF

“A change of consciousness changes physical matter.” – Normandi Ellis

Every decision we make changes our reality bit by bit. Think about all the internal decisions you’ve made up to this point. Your reality has changed every time you’ve traveled somewhere, switched job professions, changed religious beliefs, and more.

We’re more powerful than we think, but how would we know in this massive jungle of information we live in today? Imagining the World acknowledges an ancient perspective lost in this modern day.

I think about how much power we would truly have if we recognized our higher consciousness and harness it for our own use.

Nowadays, we let any sort of distracting information place us into states of fear, chaos, and anxiety. The news today consists of more negative news than good. It’s like the show runners are keeping the mass consciousness in a lower state on purpose. Turning our heads away from the consistent negativity shows we have the power to control which thoughts we receive.

The ancient Egyptians believed the gods created the world; we can create our own.

Consciousness & Heka

The ancient Egyptians were so in tune with higher consciousness they had incorporated rituals to their daily lives even after death. They knew what they did in the physical plane would affect their souls in the non-physical realms.

Ellis frequently mentions The Book of the Dead, The Coffin Texts, and The Pyramid Texts in her book. These manuscripts contained spells to guide and protect the deceased in the afterlife. The act of writing and reading spells were forms of creation, magical practices known as heka.

Remember in The Mummy when Evelyn read a passage from The Book of the Dead and brought Imhotep back to life?

That would be heka.

Not only heka are spells, but a god. Heka is the source behind all the existing magic in the universe including the souls’ ability to travel through the afterlife.  It is said he existed before any other god.

Doctors, priests, and scribes were highly valued for their knowledge of heka. It was believed they used heka to call on the gods to aid in their works. Writing, meditation, healing, and reading were all consider acts of heka.

In that sense, we work with magic every day! We write, we read, and empower ourselves with affirmations. We create magic daily, yet we don’t consider our abilities to be magical.

Imagining the World & The Kybalion

Imagining the World has a strong concept about thoughts and vibration correlating to The Kybalion. Ellis writes:

“Everything comes alive through the law of vibration and vibration is not static. Vibration changes thought. Thought is a vibration that changes things.”

This quote closely resembles to a principle in The Kybalion stating all matter are vibrations:

“Nothing rests, everything moves, everything vibrates.”

Thought is a state of matter. It can execute all sorts of emotions within us. If we’re upset, we receive upsetting events. If we’re happy, we’ll receive happy events.

Our emotions are magnets. We attract whatever is our current vibrational state. Change your vibration and see what comes to you.

Conclusion

I recommend this book if you’re into metaphysical subjects, ancient magic, or mainly interested in ancient Egyptian culture and beliefs. It’s best to check out the table of contents before reading the entire book.

I would personally purchase this book. The concepts of thoughts changing reality and the infinite power within the self really stood out to me. The ancient Egyptians knew so much we don’t know these days.

BOOK REVIEW: “Ask and It Is Given”

Image result for ask and it is given

Wondering if the Universe is purposely making your life hell for pure amusement?

Don’t blame the mercury retrograde yet! Read Ask and It Is Given and you’ll discover all your negative thoughts may be the root of your frustrations. What happens in the outside world reflects your mind.

Esther Hicks has written this book channeling a non-physical being named Abraham. Its purpose is to share news the world is an illusion and we have the power to change our experience in this physical plane with our thoughts.

Ask and It Is Given is a book strongly reserved for those interested in vibrations, good thoughts, and the law of attraction.

Yet, this book could’ve provided better explanations for rising from negative vibrations.

For instance, it’s game over for you if you have a mental illness or live in poverty. Apparently, you’re responsible and you must find a way to change your thoughts even though you’ve suffered for a long time.

Abraham has some serious explaining to do.

Who Is Abraham?

Abraham is described as a collective of non-physical beings from a higher dimension. It approached Esther while she was in the middle of meditating and started using her body (with her permission) to channel information through her.

Like Bashar channeling through Darryl Anka, Abraham has come to our world to spread news about our untapped powers.

 Non-Reality and Physical Reality

Everything we create comes from the mental plane. Our minds carry an unlimited amount of ideas waiting to be manifested in this physical realm.

Abraham points out everything we think about with enough focus eventually manifests. We don’t allow our desires to come through most of the time. Our fears and excuses get the best of us.

The universe will help us out if we change the way we think, letting us achieve our greatest potential.

The Universe is Your Genie

There are three steps in the “ask and it is given” process:

  1. Asking
  2. Letting the Universe does its job
  3. Receiving

Your only job is to state your desire (asking) then keep up with thoughts matching it (receiving) until it comes to life. The Universe does the middle job. It sets up the right time, the people involved, and its location.

Look at the universe as your genie. Whatever you ask, you let the genie do its work. You don’t see Aladdin complaining to Genie whenever his wishes don’t come true.

The Earth is Our Canvas

 According to Abraham, the earth is made as a platform to develop our creations. Our purpose here on the planet is to simply create and have fun doing it.

Nevertheless, it’s hard to imagine the earth as our playground. Rules and expectations about life have structured our minds since birth.  The more we grow our imaginations, it is cut down by our parents, teachers, and authority figures. It feels like we can’t do anything except for what we are told.

Luckily, Abraham affirms we are born free and will always be. We are free to paint the reality of our dreams. Nobody can take our paintbrush away from us!

The Emotional Guidance System

Take this scenario: you’re in a cramped fourteen-hour flight and you can’t wait to get to your destination. For now, a baby is wailing behind you while you’re trying to watch a long, boring movie.

Either you:

  • A: Tell the mother to shut her baby up
  • B: Lock yourself in the bathroom and cry
  • C: Calmly ask the mother if the baby’s okay
  • D: Jump out of the plane

Choice C feels the most pleasant. You ask the mother what’s wrong and she apologizes, revealing her child is sick. Now, you sympathize for the mother and her child. You hope the trip turns out better for them.

Meanwhile, the passenger beside you starts joking about the lame movie. You chip in and enjoy each other’s company.

Thanks to your emotional guidance system, the plane trip’s been made worthwhile.

Everybody has what Abraham calls the “emotional guidance system” aka your emotions. The purpose of your feelings is to let you know of your vibration status. If you’re sad, it means you’re in a low vibration. You’re happy then you’re on a high vibration. Your emotional guidance system can help you decide which choices feel the best.

The only concern I had with this concept is mental health disorders. What about the people with depression and anxiety issues? They can’t flip their emotions from sadness to happiness like a light switch. A depressed individual can be in Disney World and still be down in the dumps.

It’s not fair to say it’s their fault they carry low vibrations due to their mental condition. The same goes to homeless people who don’t know better.

Millionaire Vibrations

Most people aren’t millionaires because they don’t emit “millionaire vibrations”.

Millionaires have abundant mindsets. Everywhere they look and everything they do is a financial opportunity. A millionaire’s money-flowing imagination immediately expresses itself into physical reality.

On the other hand, poor mindsets remain in low vibrations. Money doesn’t come to poor people because they’re not a vibrational match to abundance. Screaming to the world you’re broke isn’t exactly going to help you out. The universe only responds by giving you more “broke” situations.

To sum things up, Abraham suggests the best way to have money come to you is to change your thoughts about it. Start thinking of money as an infinite resource instead of a limited one. The more positive thoughts you have about money, the more it will fly into your bank account.

However, this view seems fair until I think about the children who were born poor. Surely, they didn’t deserve to be born in poverty. I wished Abraham elaborated more on this factor.

Conclusion

Ask and It Is Given is a decent beginner’s book to the Law of Attraction process. Abraham reveals we have the powers of thought to change our realities. What are you going to do with your infinite creative powers?

This book would’ve been better if it had more clarifications on certain topics. I suppose that’s why more Abraham books we’re published after this one.

“365 Ways to Raise Your Frequency” Review

365 Ways to Raise Your Frequency is an uplifting book for anyone ready to get rid of all sorts of negative energy burdens. I’ve explored the possibilities written in this book from carrying certain crystals to gaining willpower.

Warning: All the tips in this book don’t work out for everyone. It’s up to the reader to discover what works out the best for them.

What is Frequency?

Related image

According to this book, frequency is energy based on our emotions. When you’re happy, you feel light as a feather. You feel like doing cartwheels and rolling down hills in a picturesque countryside. At a lively concert, you absorbed the vibrant energy from the excited audience and the performers.

Now, negative energy is awful. You spill hot coffee on yourself, your boss yells at you for no apparent reason, and your Uber driver picks you up an hour late! Plus, it’s a cranky driver at that!

When you’re angry or sad, you can feel the bad vibes weighing down upon you. You feel like you’re dragging an anchor behind you throughout the day and the energy seeps into everything.

No time for that bull! You deserve good energy!

Journaling, Meditation, & Mother Nature

Image result for meditation in nature tumblr gif

There are tips in Melissa Alvarez’s book I already do and they’ve certainly elevated my mood:

Meditation: I love to meditate. It helps me clear the monkey chatter in my mind. Sometimes, it alleviates headaches.

Journaling: Journaling leads me to creative solutions to any problems I face. It’s much better for me than ranting on Tumblr or Facebook. I feel better immediately once I state my concerns on paper instead of keeping them on repeat in my head like a broken record player.

Visiting Mother Nature: I don’t understand how anyone can stay cooped up indoors (especially at work) all day when Mother Nature provides so much to see. Taking a simple walk around the park certainly raises my frequency. One time, I was stressing over a computer problem so I left home and took a stroll around the park. I’ve returned with a peace of mind and my computer issue was solved with a few clicks.

Sample Frequency Tips for You

Image result for ideas gif

As the book title states, there are over three hundred frequency raising tips you can try. Here’s a few:

Do Things You’ve Always Wanted to Do

Do you want to just drop all your obligations to travel all around the world for a year?

Stuck at a lame office job as some corporate employee when you’d rather paint for hours in your own home studio as a freelance artist?

The best thing you can do: stay true to yourself. Do what makes you happy.

Now, I’m not talking about stealing money from a bank or setting someone who annoys you on fire.  This is not the Purge! That’ll take your frequency down the wrong path.

Creative Visualization

Think about the things you want to see instead of being frustrated with what’s in front of you.  Creative visualization is a step closer to your ideal solutions if you’re struggling with losing weight, money, or finding a new career.

However, sitting around daydreaming all day about living in a giant mansion or having a fit Instagram model body isn’t going to take you anywhere. You must take action in order to make you dreams come true.

Make a vision board as an extra step to your personal creative visualization. Slap some pictures from old magazines and newspapers symbolizing your desires on construction paper then place the board anywhere you’ll see everyday as a friendly reminder. Be as creative as you want to be with them. You can create one entirely on your computer with any image-editing software you may have.

To learn more about vision boards, check out the video below:

The Power of No

Say no to smoking.

Say no to drama.

Say no to f*ckboys.

Say no to unhealthy twelve-hour Netflix marathons.

You have the power to say no to anything that doesn’t resonate with you. Protect your precious energy.

Saying no can be a little tricky sometimes when it comes down to your friends, family, and significant others. If they’re not spreading good vibes your way, you have the right to steer clear of them.

It’s hard, but you’ll realize your moving negativity aside to make room for the positive.

Advanced Techniques

Image result for doctor strange tumblr gif

The only problem I had with this book was the way some frequency tips were presented as if everybody can do them with ease. That’s why I warned earlier every tip won’t work out for everyone.

Here are two techniques I distinctively remember from the book that would be the most challenging for a beginner:

Astral Travel

Astral projection is the process of consciously moving your soul out of body. You’re not dead, only out of your physical body. This can take months of practice.

You’re capable of traveling all over the universe including multiple dimensions during your astral journeys. You’ll also be able to contact multi-dimensional beings.

Watch out for the lower dimensional beings! They can be dangerous to your mental, emotional, and spiritual health. If you meet one while wandering in your astral form, you’ll be able to retreat back to your body and wake up!

Spooky, isn’t it?

Entering the Akashic Records

The Akashic Records is a higher dimensional library containing universal knowledge about everyone and everything past, present, and future. This library is also known to carry records about your current life, your past lives, deaths, and future births.

To get there, you must master astral projection first.

Oy, I know, it’s a load of work!

Conclusion

365 Ways to Raise Your Frequency is a self-help book you can refer to as many times as you like. It’s not the kind of book you read once and all your emotional woes magically fade away. I highly advise you to stick with tips you know you can do without having to go through a forty-year shamanistic journey.

You’ll start to see great things as soon as you apply this book into your life.
