We can will and create almost anything we wish, but real fulfillment comes only when we first tune into our inner direction and divine guidance.

Real healing takes place when we can envision a new kind of future for ourselves that excites us.

Inspiration is what keeps us well.

Self-imposed hell. There is no conspiratorial evil in the world, no satanic plot to which we fall prey - there is only human fear, and the bizarre ways that humans try to ward it off. References to Satan are a metaphor, a sym

Now why did I chose this life experience? To enter into a family that would abandon me, sexual abuse, child abuse... co-dependant relationships? Yes.. I see so that I would evolve from a consciouness of fear to a consciousness of Love. To reunite with All That Is. To show the way of the Dragon.
Definately read this one.

I loved the Celestine Prophecy so much that I had to get this book. I tried to read it back in 2006 and couldn't get all the way through it. I have tried again this past month and am down to the last 50 pages or so, but have put it down again in favor of several other recommended books.

This book does not grip me the way Celestine did; it seems forced and a little too out there for me. I don't walk away feeling "enlightened" or feeling like I can relate to it.
I found The Tenth Insight to be even more powerful than The Celestine Prophecy. Putting all of the spiritual lessons we have learned to work and keeping our vibration high will take practice, but the more confident and solid we are in our knowing of our paths, the stronger we will be. Throuth this allegory, of sorts, Redfield has described how it can work, even with the dark trying to close in. Light and love is always the answer.
Listening to it on audio tapes. Stopped on cassette 5 out of 7. I saw the movie, Celestine Prophecy, which took me on a spiritual, emotional rollercoaster...and was a great flick. I thought the book would offer more, only some input on the different insights and how it concides with the spiritual realm and after-life ancestral aspects...he tries to explain in this audiobook series. As a Christian, not sure if I can receive the Eastern religious beliefs and afterlife is able to connect with our e ...more
This is the sequel to the Celestine Prophecy. It is more philosophical and less plot oriented, but unfortunately the philosophy, on the whole, is more esoteric and less interesting. The metaphysics of "The Afterlife" are questionable to me, and the "10th Insight" is not very clear. I wouldn't particularly recommend this to anyone unless they loved the Celestine Prophecy and are looking to be inspired to continue to pay attention to meaningful coincidences in their lives.
كتاب (بصيرت دهم) ادامهي كتاب (پيشگويي آسماني) است. به عقيدهي نويسنده هر موجودي كه به جهان ميآيد، با نيتي پاك پا به عالم هستي ميگذارد. از آغاز حتي پيش از آنكه نطفهي موجودي بسته شود همه چيز بر او آشكار است. ولادت يك انسان دور از پاكي و خلوص نيست، اما پس از پاگذاردن به دنياي مادي و نشو و نما به تدريج اهداف راستين به دست فراموشي سپرده ميشود و آدمي در قيد و بند دلبستگيهاي پست مادي اسير ميشود ...more
Perhaps I should have read this immediately after reading the Celestine Prophecy..this follow up book was a bit strange to me and I found it very difficult to get through. The message that Redfield is trying to express is lost (at least to me) in this bizarre, a-bit-to-imaginative-tale. I would not recommend this book.
A.J. Aaron
An exciting, revealing, motivating book that wasn't meant as a motivating book. An aid in exploring oneself. A book about the changes some people are experiencing in this day and age. The increased consciousness and the chance happenings and meeting of people. An extension of Carl Jung’s Synchronisity theory
Bought this remembering how i enjoyed the first one, and hoping to motivate me into reading didn't. I really didn't like it, don't know if it was because it wasn't nearly as good as the celestian prophecy, or maybe I was just older...a lot older ;-)
A great overview of the original ten insights. I am rereading it now, and it sounds a lot like what is happening in the U.S. right now. People need to grow spiritually, and are afraid of change. So extreme left and right wing people are just making up lies because they are so obsessed with their beliefs, they are not open to listening to any facts that differ from them. Even though what each side says is not The Truth, both sides refuse to even listen or compromise. The Truth is when all of them ...more
Apparently this is the third book in a series by Redfield, about "insights" which appear to be visions, or the ability to go into another dimension, such as the afterlife (not to be confused with Heaven), while there you receive information about past lives, the process of choosing your parents and why, and others that are a part of you life now and in the past. This book is about the main character is contacted and told a friend of his, Charlene is missing this leads him to go on a quest to fin ...more
In the sequel to The Celestine Prophecy, Redfield moves the fictional spiritual adventure to the wilds of the North Carolina Appalachians, an area with which the author is quite familiar. His knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area as well as topography, resulted in the setting feeling more realistic to this reader. The unnamed protagonist has returned home from Peru and has isolated himself after trying to incorporate the 9 Insights into his life and becoming frustrated by people's lack of ...more

Recommends it for: Someone who likes occult fiction
Shelves: occult
While the first book of the series was well made and had a lot of real life applications, this book disappointed me greatly.

The various occult teachings embedded in the story where wrong. The writer used many occult teachings and scrambled their meaning leading to misinformation. I don't think this was done on purpose, but the book seemed to me more like occult fiction.

I started this book thinking i would read a book strong on the occult and an enlightening meaning hidden between the lines. Whil

The reality of the Life Review is becoming part of our every day understanding. We know that after death, we have to look at our lives again; and we’re going to agonize over every missed opportunity, over every case in which we failed to act. This knowledge is contributing to our determination to pursue every intuitive image that comes to mind, and keep it firmly in awareness. We’re living life in a more deliberate way. We don’t want to miss a single important event. We don’t want
Matías Delac
Queriendo seguir con lo plasmado en la novena revelación, el autor se adentra en una cuestión que, creo yo, o no tiene nada claro o no sabe cómo explicarlo. Pretende dar una visión universal de la historia pero sin poder desprenderse de un punto de vista católico apostólico romano, con centro en la cultura occidental y con la mentalidad de que EUA está en una posición privilegiada (tal como cada religión define a sus propios pueblos). Es decir, pretende una visión de todo el estadio mientras est ...more

I loved the book, and the way in which this spiritual experience and its concepts are explained. The tenth insight: holding the vision might not be as good as the first book of the Celestine prophecy but still it is worth reading. Especially for anyone that got hooked up with the first book.

I would highly recommend it. It explains history in a completely different, and gives us a completely different perspective of the spiritual future of the earth.

Love is the key.
En realidad leí la versión en español. Un libro muy sencillo, no estoy seguro si para bien o para mal; con una cosmovisión muy interesante (en particular el "infierno"). La historia quizá pobre, pero se entiende que estuvo supeditada a las líneas de exposición de aquello que constituye la "Décima Revelación". En conclusión, un híbrido que no termina de ser una novela breve ni una breve narración de autoconocimiento.

Мисля, че не съм дорасла духовно за тази книга. Колкото и да исках да повярвам и честно казано даже интуитивно да смятам, че може би нещата наистина са такива, каквито са описани и са възможни в точно този вариант и даже би било хубаво да са такива, все пак ми идваше много фантасмагорично за моя недорасъл /духовно/ мозък. Иначе имаше история, има какво да се научи, но явно това не е начина, по който аз мога да възприема нещата към този момент.
extremely interesting book full of spiritual knowledge, including our birth vision, earth vision. and soul groups where we re-incarnate with the same family and friends over and over but with different roles such as i am some ones daughter in this lifetime but next i might be my mothers mother and she will be my daughter..fasinating. also animals how they represent a part of ourselves and different meanings for each animal when we see them examples seeing a hare means they are pointing out a dir ...more
I found the book interesting, thought provoking, and though I did not agree with his thoughts on evolution, where man is concerned. Yes we have evolved in spirit and in understanding. His insightful wisdom of life, going back to grassroots, patience and love.

Read this years ago. The story picks up where The Celestine Prophecy left off. Not as good as his first book, but not a bad read either.
Stephen Hebert
This book has helped me to gain more clarity many aspects of my life. It presents complex topics (history, economy, spirituality, etc) in simple -- some would say 'simple-minded', and I might agree with them if I were not biased in favor of Redfield's convictions -- language. I give it four stars because, though it is just a piece of a larger puzzle, I think many of the ideas have transformative potential and I hope that they will spread. Though I think Redfield is guilty of technofantasy, I fin ...more
Actual note found inside a library copy of this book, so I'm posting it for posterity and giving it one star. Judging from the movie adaptation that I watched a few years ago, I would have to agree with the reviewer below.-MC

"Dear Cheryl,

The Tenth Insight soon lost me. After page 130 I had trouble making sense of it. I could follow connecting with the spiritual energy within. I could follow Redfield's being mad at what the white man did to the Indian, and building that into his story. But curing
Jeffery Foster
Same as my review for Celestine Prophesy with worse story telling. Tries to teach what doesn't really exist. Richard Foster's Celebration of the Disciplines is a great read with similar faith concepts.
This book took me a year to read. It was interesting and frustrating at the same time. When I was reading it I was engrossed, but somehow I lacked the inspiration to pick it up again. The sheer will of "I will finish this book" was the main thing driving me.

Interestingly, I seemed to pick it up and found myself reading paragraphs which were directly relevant to me at that time. Had I read the book in one shot, I don't think I would have appreciated all its messages.

Glad I finished reading it bu
