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

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.

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.

This book did not provide me with more answers to life. Instead, it left me with more questions. Personally, I've discovered it's the "questions" that I cherish most, more so than hoping for a discovery, a revelation. I don't expect I'll ever have those answers about life's journey even if I lived many lifetimes. That's okay. I remember back in my college days when one of my professors said, " when you graduate and discover that you have more questions than answers than when you first came here, ...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

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.

Our greatest mistake, in my opinion, is to think that human spirituality is somehow already understood and established...

A very insightful (no pun intended) book.
The Tenth Insight is very complex, as it involves several different things at the same time:

- Recognition of more than the physical (Earthly) dimension – similar to the second insight
- Remembering who one is via one’s birth vision –what is your mission on Earth? – and whether one is focused enough and disciplined enough respectively, to fulfilling the birth vision and bringing it about
- Recognizing in remembering one’s birth vision that one also has a bi

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
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

This book was a continuation of The Celestine Prophecy. It didn't quite hold my interest as much as the first--I think mainly because it didn't seem as concise in its points. There was also much more VERY long one-sided conversations/explanations which to me, took away from the adventure and excitement of the story.

If you read The Celestine Prophecy, you know this series is fiction, yet based on a non-fiction premise, and for me this came out more in The Tenth Insight with all the explaining the

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.

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.

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 ;-)
The Tenth Insight was written by James Redfield and published in 1996. It is the second book in The Celestine Prophecy series. This is a spiritual adventure series. The first book was about a man who found out about a manuscript that was discovered that described better ways for humans to live their lives and to realize that there is more to life than just the material world. ( You can read my review of the first book to find out more about it). In this second book the narrator’s friend

The Tenth Insight by James Redfield
I have been struggling to finish this book so I pushed through today to get it off my plate. This book was recommended by one of my coaches. I’m not sure why.
It’s one of those ‘story as a metaphor’ vehicles to get to a higher meaning of some sort. This is apparently the sequel to a successful previous outing called the Celestine Prophecy. Apparently that previous story was about the discovery of lost insights.
This book was the further adventures to find the 1

j'ai préféré La Prophétie des Andes, mais la dixième révélation introduit de nouvelles notions intéressantes. Cependant les explications peuvent parfois traîner en longueurs et il m'a fallu beaucoup de concentration pour suivre avec attention les longues pages sur l'Après-Vie, les leçons de vie...

Read for spiritual guidance

How can anyone write on subjects like dis with intensity n clarity of dis level.No question n doubt remain unanswered, d only doubts dat remain are cuz of our loss of conection wid d meaning of d book so stay connected n be enlightened.

Not as good a read as the Celestine Prophecy, the book seemed rather rushed and a bit all over the place. Still a good read, with many ideals that can be applied to everyday life in the physical realm.

J'ai adoré la prophétie des Andes, mais pas cette suite: l'idée principale qu'elle présente m'apparaît manquer de substance, tout comme le récit d'aventure servant de toile de fond pour la présenter.
