This book delves into the emerging approach to spirituality that humankind is currently living and proves that those mystical experiences that were once laughed at can now be explained by science and are more ubiquitous than before. Synchronicity, the power of being in the present, premonitions, gut-feelings and intuitive behavior are just one of the few spiritual experiences Redfield explores. Not only science has been able to testify these are not the happenings of fools or dishonest hawkers b ...more

I just finished reading this book today. It was given to me by a good friend of mine at just the right time, when I needed spiritual guidance the most. This book went with me wherever I went for a week. Any free time I had I was reading. Listening. Learning. Highlighting. Applying. It has truly changed my life and made me learn more about myself than I ever thought I could in such a short amount of time. James Redfield gave me the back the knowledge of what I already knew, but forgotten along th ...more

i read this book on the big montana road trip and what a great companion book on a trip like that. basically they take the celestine prophecy book and turn it into a guide for how to live. may sound strange for it to be from a fiction book but i got so much out of it. it asks you tons of questions and forces you to look at your life, childhood and future and all in a totally fresh perspective. for example it asks you at one point to pretend that you are a fetus about to pick parents and to list ...more

Another leftover from my bookshelf of the 20th century. A companion book to some fiction that I have never read, I still enjoyed it thoroughly at the time. But the boundless optimism and the feeling that we were about to enter a bright new future came to a screeching halt on 9/11 2001, and I think anyone reading it today will feel a little wistful. That said, it is less superstitious than most New Age books, and the pseudoscience is mixed with portions of useful wisdom. Compared to the "get rich ...more

Although I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it just compliments the original celestine prophecy. That is my all time favorite. If you are looking for more after that book I highly recommend this along with the 10th insight.

This book was one of the main factors that helped me realize that I am an atheist and not an anti-christian. I just couldn't wait to be done with it.

Very good...but The Celestine Prophecy is still by far the best!
Wendy Gumera
It tickled my imagination, just like James Redfield's 2 other books before it. Hope I would continue to be inspired.

"the double-bind effect, during which humans discount every idea offered by others in order to dominate the interaction" ... "when every possible action a child offers is criticized, the child retreats into extreme defensiveness and develops excessive reaction patterns created to fight back. When these children grow up, their defensiveness and need to control every situation lead them to unconsciously use double-bind techniques themselves, especially toward their

This wasn't a bad book, I just felt like I wasn't learning anything new. Now if I had read it a year ago I may have gotten much more out of it. There was some good nuggets of truth though & I'd imagine a lot of people would get a great deal out of this book!
Ntandose Gamede
An interesting viewpoint

This book is a look into how the concepts in Redfield's fictitious writing are inspired and what inspires them. I believe the concepts he raises in this book are attainable once humanity evolves to higher ways of living.

I'd been experiencing a lot of synchronicity in my life, most of it without much apparent meaning beyond the novelty that the synchronicity itself was notable. Things lining up in certain ways or one event leading to another with similar coincidences. As synchronicity would have it, the Celestine Vision caught my attention during this period of time and I came to find that it focuses a lot on those synchronistic moments of life and provides examples of how to take them one step further to find o ...more

(buku yang kubeli tahun 2008, dan baru punya niat baca sekarang.)

Ini sama sekali bukan novel. Buku ini adalah buku tentang pengembangan spiritual. Pemahaman akan hidup yang memiliki visi dan misi. Kita dituntun untuk mengenal diri kita, menarik lebih banyak perhatian ke lingkungan di sekitar kita, dan berhubungan dengan orang lain.

Ini adalah buku terberat yang pernah aku baca. Bahkan, masih lebih asyik membaca buku Matematika dan Biologi. Meskipun demikian, ada beberapa bagian yang aku suka dala

Recommends it for: meghan dunn, beth dunn, jenny dunn, berni dunn
so far, I am obsessed with this book. my mom has been pushing me to read it for YEARS now, and I thought I wouldn't be into it since it sounded wishy-washy spiritual-ish. However, it has given me great insight into the energies of others, as well as myself. This book also talks about "coincidences" and how positive thinking really controls your health, like blood pressure. Pretty fascinating stuff.

Now that I finished, there are definitely parts you can scan/skip based on your interest and needs.

For those wishing to dive deeper into the insights buried with the fictional series. This book adds a whole new dimension of understanding as you place limits on your own perspective, diving deeper into your own inner psyche and what forms your personality, finding practical uses for these insights. Also, expands such insights to a global consciousness.. from understanding where we've come from and where we've been the last 200 years or so to the vision itself.. where we will be in the future.
Con lo que me gustan los libros con filosofía, lecciones de vida aplicables y mensaje...y éste un palo!
Aún recuerdo en qué página lo dejé (en la 100), y seguramente todavía tengo el marcador ahí.
El problema de la novela es que a pesar de ser interesante el planteamiento, se torna sumamente repetitivo. Por ejemplo, por cada revelación se la explican tres o cuatro veces( ...hola? emmm, yo con una tengo suficiente- y todo el mundo- ni que te estuviesen dando a devorar una auténtico galimatias..).

This book was exactly what I was looking for: it explains what the insights of the Celestine Prophecy is in more detail. His vision of the future is amazing and how I wish it would all come true! However I wish he had a section on the changing roles of males and females in the new world vision. Since we are actually moving into the feminine now, it would help to have some discussion and guidance on this. He touches on this a little on his section of romantic relationships but not nearly enough.
Dec 28, 2014 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
The author wrote about what's happening in this world now and the direction its shifting, so accurately that too 15 years ago. If that's not vision, I don't know what is. Also none of the concepts were super imposing although quite a lot to take in, so best if read in breaks rather than at a single setting. As they say, the teacher appears when the student is ready & nothing is ever just a coincidence, nor is reading this book. Amazing experience, truly!

If you've read the Celestine Prophecy and the sequels I'm not sure if you really need to r read this book. There were a couple interesting chapters but I think the subject matter is a repeat of the story he created with the Celestine Prophecy, only in non story mode. If you like 'guide' books then maybe this will interest you. I would say just read the series and you will get a better feel for the subject matter and skip this book.
Тази книга всъщност не е художествена. В нея са разгледани и обяснени всички десет селестински откровения, извадени от контекста на литературната история. За мен беше излишна, след прочита на първите две, първо, защото всичко това беше прясно в главата ми и, второ, защото в типичен американски стил, 9/10 от текста е излишно разводняване.
Kenia Perez
The fiction novel, The Celestine Prophecy, does more justice to this new concept of spiritual awareness, energy, and growth, than this non-fiction telling. While the Celestine Vision is a good road map to the philosophy and ideas that this author believes in, it doesn't catch one's interest nearly as well.
Faythe Swanson
Very similar to "The Celestine Prophecy: An Experiential Guide". Seemed like more of the same, repetitive stuff & didn't quite care for the political stuff towards the end of the book. Some of the chapters didn't interest me, either.

It's an informative book for those who are starting the ascension process. A great book of validation for those already seeing this in action. Just confirms a lot of what I have already began to do on my own spiritual path.

To me this is the book you should read if you're interested in what Redfield is getting at with the whole "Insight" series. Redfield gives you the reasons behind his writings, deeper understandings of the Insights, and excercises. Worth the read for those wanting to deepen their experiences.
having been a practicing pagan for years now and someone who studied psychology and development, most of the stuff in this book is already familiar,not ground breaking to me. For someone new to the concepts it covers its a good starting point.

An interesting read and a chance to further explore the perspectives of the author, however, I prefer the fictional adventure series.
