About the Book

You have never read a book like this before -- a book that comes along once in a lifetime to change lives forever.

In the rain forests of Peru, an ancient manuscript has been discovered. Within its pages are 9 key insights into life itself -- insights each human being is predicted to grasp sequentially; one insight, then another, as we move toward a completely spiritual culture on Earth. Drawing on ancient wisdom, it tells you how to make connections among the events happening in your life right now and lets you see what is going to happen to you in the years to come. The story it tells is a gripping one of adventure and discovery, but it is also a guidebook that has the power to crystallize your perceptions of why you are where you are in life and to direct your steps with a new energy and optimisim as you head into tomorrow.

About the Reviews

I read this book many years ago and periodically return to it for a refresh. I see from other reviews that most people refer to it as spiritual. However, my take-away has always been how to best interact with other people. Whenever I have to deal with a difficult individual, I immediately try to classify them by their “control drama”. Almost everyone falls into at least one. From there, I can then figure out how to best respond to them. This has changed my life. For example, after reading this book, I figured out that a family member was a “poor me” and adopted the strategies recommended in the book. I now can understand, and break, the unhealthy dynamic that existed between us. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has those unhealthy relationships with others or who work with people on a daily basis. I can guarantee that you will be happier and less stressed as a result!

*********************************

I read this book many years ago. then I lent it to my dad when he was in rehabilitation for a broken leg and he was depressed. he passed away in Feb. of this year and mom 6 weeks later. I reordered this book to put in the internment with him as he never, ever forgot about the "energy in the trees". Now he is that energy in the trees and I know he's enjoying this book wherever he is.

*********************************

The Celestine Prophecy is an easy, engaging read about a quest for knowledge/wisdom. A man journeys to Peru and discovers the meaning of life through Nine Insights, which are invaluable to living a spiritually enriched/evolved life on Earth. Each of the Nine Insights are explored within the novel, including practical tips for self-realization. Some of the areas explored include energy (how it works, how it is often misused, and how to keep yours free and clear), control dramas (where they originate and why, and how to get to the root of your own and stop the pattern in your family lineage), and the soul's evolution.
