In 1510, nine men were tried in the Archbishop’s Court in York for attempting to find and extract a treasure…on the moor near Mixindale through necromantic magic. Two decades later, William Neville and his magician were arrested by Thomas Cromwell for having engaged in a treasonous combination of magic practices and prophecy surrounding the death of William’s older brother, Lord Latimer, and the king. In The Magic of Rogues, Frank Klaassen and Sharon Hubbs Wright present the legal documents about and open a window onto these fascinating investigations of magic practitioners in early Tudor England. Set side by side with sixteenth- and seventeenth-century texts that describe the sorts of magic those practitioners performed, these documents are translated, contextualized, and presented in language accessible to nonspecialist readers. Their analysis reveals how magicians and cunning folk operated in extended networks in which they exchanged knowledge, manuscripts, equipment, and even clients; foregrounds magicians’ encounters with authority in ways that separate them from traditional narratives about witchcraft and witch trials; and suggests that the regulation and punishment of magic in the Tudor period were comparatively and perhaps surprisingly gentle. Incorporating the study of both intellectual and legal sources, The Magic of Rogues presents a well-rounded picture of illicit learned magic in early Tudor England.Engaging and accessible, this book will appeal to anyone seeking to understand the intersection of medieval legal history, religion, magic, esotericism, and Tudor history.

An exhaustive investigation of the case of Gef, a &“talking mongoose&” or &“man-weasel,&” who appeared to a family living on…the Isle of Man.&“I am the fifth dimension! I am the eighth wonder of the world!&”During the mid-1930s, British and overseas newspapers were full of incredible stories about Gef, a &“talking mongoose&” or &“man-weasel&” who had allegedly appeared in the home of the Irvings, a farming family in a remote district of the Isle of Man. The creature was said to speak in several languages, to sing, to steal objects from nearby farms, and to eavesdrop on local people.Despite written reports, magazine articles and books, several photographs, fur samples and paw prints, voluminous correspondence, and signed eyewitness statements, there is still no consensus as to what was really happening to the Irving family.Was it a hoax? An extreme case of folie à plusieurs? A poltergeist? The possession of an animal by an evil spirit? Now you can read all the evidence and decide for yourself. Seven years' research and interviews, photographs (many previously unseen), interviews with surviving witnesses, visits to the site—all are presented in this book, the first examination of the case for seventy years.In the words of its mischievous, enigmatic subject, &“If you knew what I know, you'd know a hell of a lot!"

A literary mix tape that explores the entwined boundaries between sound, material culture, landscape and esoteric belief.Trees rigged up to…the wireless radio heavens. A fax machine used to decode the language of hurricanes. A broadcast ghost that hijacked a television station to terrorize a city. A failed computer factory in the desert with a slap-back echo resounding into ruin.In High Static, Dead Lines, media historian and artist Kristen Gallerneaux weaves a literary mix tape that explores the entwined boundaries between sound, material culture, landscape, and esoteric belief. Essays and fictocritical interludes are arranged to evoke a network of ley lines for the &“sonic spectre&” to travel through—a hypothetical presence that manifests itself as an invisible layer of noise alongside the conventional histories of technological artifacts.The objects and stories within span from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day, touching upon military, communications, and cultural history. A connective thread is the recurring presence of sound—audible, self-generative, and remembered—charting the contentious sonic histories of paranormal culture.

Megan e il gatto perduto Una guida spirituale, una tigre fantasma e una mamma spaventosa! Megan è una giovane adolescente…che scopre di avere poteri psichici che nessun altro possiede. In un primo momento cerca di parlarne con sua madre, ma, viste le conseguenze disastrose, impara a tenere la cosa per sé. Tuttavia ci sono alcune persone che si offrono di aiutarla e un animale che si mostra particolarmente amichevole nei suoi confronti, anche se non si tratta di esseri ‘vivi’ nel tradizionale senso della parola, ma di spiriti passati a miglior vita. Megan ha tre amici che appartengono a questa categoria: Wacinhinsha, la sua guida spirituale (che era stato Sioux nella sua ultima vita terrena), il nonno materno, Nonnino, e un’enorme tigre siberiana di nome Grrr. Wacinhinsha è un esperto nell’ambito dello spirituale, dei poteri psichici e del paranormale; suo nonno è una ‘persona morta’ in erba e Grrr, come c’è da aspettarsi, parla solo il tigrese (che naturalmente, per gli esseri umani, è per lo più incomprensibile). In questo episodio Megan si ritrova a leggere la notizia della scomparsa di un gatto di nome Smokey e prova molto dispiacere sia per il gatto che per i suoi padroni. Teme che a Smokey possa essere successo qualcosa di brutto, per cui dedica il suo fine settimana ad una serie di ricerche. Investigando nei boschi, riceve un indizio da parte di una ragazza misteriosa. Megan riporta le sue scoperte alla padrona del gatto, una certa signora Williams, e riceve una sorpresa che cambia considerevolmente la sua vita.
Miracles and Other Realities: The Paranormal Adventures of Thomaz Green Morton, the Most Powerful Psychic in the World
By Lee Pulos, Gary Richman. 2021
Once in a generation, a person of extraordinary psychic powers comes along. Miracles and Other Realities tells the true story…of Thomaz Green Morton, a gifted psychic from the Minas Gerais region of Brazil.Originally published in 1990 and now rereleased for a modern audience, Miracles and Other Realities recounts the fascinating story of Thomaz Green Morton and his powerful psychic abilities. This book will turn the heads of scientists, whose traditional acceptance of reality has been limited to that which can be measured objectively, and will introduce to a wider audience the power of mind over matter. Thomaz&’s story begins when he is struck by lightning on his twelfth birthday. This electrical insult to his body detonated a dazzling range of paranormal abilities. (Severe electric shock is, incidentally, common to the childhood experience of every major psychic.) Thomaz has since been called the most powerful psychic in the world. Driven by his mind to the farther reaches of reality to produce psychic phenomena such as metal-bending, spiritual healing, and transmutations of matter, Thomaz&’s feats are well-documented by the authors. The story is all the more captivating because Thomaz is graced with a childlike emotional temperament, making him intent on living life to its fullest. Coauthors Lee Pulos and Gary Richman explore through Thomaz the ways in which magic, or miracles, challenges the conventional view of reality, thereby shaking up rational belief systems that inhibit the experience of new realms of possibility. Readers will find Thomaz&’s story compelling, not only as a real-life example of human potential but as a metaphor for unleashing other realities and levels of consciousness to tap into the potential within themselves.
By Matt Fraser. 2020
America&’s top psychic medium reflects on his life of speaking to Spirit and the lessons he&’s learned along the way—from…both the living and the dead.People who are not in the habit of talking with the dead have a hard time imagining what Matt Fraser&’s life is like. Based on the questions he gets, they seem to think he spends most of his time sitting cross-legged in a trance, maybe hovering a few inches off the ground, leaving his physical body behind as he journeys across the veil to the spirit realm. But it&’s not like that at all. The real Matt Fraser is just an ordinary twenty-eight-year-old guy…who happens to talk to dead people. Born into a psychic family, Matt carries on the legacy passed down from his late Grandmother Mary by connecting people to their dearly departed loved ones and delivering messages from the other side. His sold-out live group readings, television appearances, and popular private readings have allowed him to bring hope and healing to fans from around the world. Now, in When Heaven Calls, Matt opens up about his life as a psychic medium—including how he discovered his spiritual gift, what it&’s like to connect with souls on the other side, what communicating with the dead has taught him about embracing life, and how you can tap into your own intuitive awareness to manifest your dreams, goals, and desires.

A journalist&’s profound investigation into the reality behind an intense waking vision and the search for healing after death •…Details the author&’s vivid waking vision of a dying German soldier in World War II and how he discovered the soldier was a real person, including his research into German military archives and meeting the man&’s surviving family members • Explores synchronicities, reincarnation, and communication across the veil between life and death • Reveals how the author helped the dead soldier find forgiveness and healing While on a spiritual retreat in Peru, journalist Stéphane Allix experienced a vivid waking vision of a soldier dying on a snowy battlefield, followed by scenes from the soldier&’s earlier life. He also clearly saw the man&’s name, Alexander Herrmann, and felt a disturbing sense of closeness with the soldier. Obsessed by the power of this extremely real vision, Allix began an intensive investigation that revealed this individual had actually existed: a German soldier who died in World War II during the 1941 Russian campaign. As he began retracing Herrmann&’s past, he found that the other images accompanying the battle scene were also of people who had truly existed and were close to the man who died. Diving deep into German military archives, meeting the man&’s surviving family members, and following his own intuitive hunches, the author also discovered that the soldier was part of the Waffen S.S., the infamous Totenkopf Brigade, and his investigation broadened to explore what drove Herrmann to become part of such an organization. While Allix&’s initial impression is that this German soldier was a past life, as he progresses in his rigorous investigation and his decoding of the events surrounding it, he realizes that it was actually his own work with the paranormal and his unresolved feelings over the death of his brother and his father that made him particularly sensitive to the veil between life and death, culminating in the soul of this dead soldier coming to him in search of forgiveness and healing. Allix realizes that his mission is not to bring about the rebirth of this person but to heal him--and the victims of his ignominious actions during the war. Offering a fascinating exploration of visions, synchronicities, reincarnation, and the connections between the spiritual and physical planes, When I Was Someone Else shares a powerful message of healing after death along with the profound epiphany that light needs darkness to be perceived.

A guide to discovering and developing the spiritual and mystical talents hidden in your astrological chart • Explores the 4th,…8th, and 12th houses of the natal astrological chart—those connected with the water signs, the deepest and darkest areas of the individual psyche, profound spiritual insights, and hidden knowledge • Explains how to interpret the signs and planets in the water houses of your birth chart, including how to develop the innate talents and spiritual powers you discover • Reveals the occult and psychic significance of water and shows how this significance is expressed in each of the three water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, the rulers of the water houses Your astrological birth chart, or natal chart, shows the positions of the planets, sun, and moon at the time of your birth. Shaped like a circle or wheel, it is divided into 12 sections, or &“houses,&” each connected with a different area of life or self. The positions of the planets within the houses offer deep and often complex insight into your unique gifts and your life&’s path. In Astrology for Mystics, Tayannah Lee McQuillar explores the 4th, 8th, and 12th houses--those connected with the element of water and all things occult, mystical, and spiritual. The fourth house, ruled by water sign Cancer, is traditionally the house of family, home, ancestors, and suffering. The eighth house, ruled by water sign Scorpio, is the house of sex, death, secret powers, and transformation. The twelfth house, ruled by Pisces, is the house of karma, loss, unspoken expectations, fantasy, and confinement. As McQuillar explains, these are the houses that reveal the deepest and darkest areas of the individual psyche, which many people are reluctant to explore, yet this triad is the key to profound spiritual insights as well as the discovery of hidden knowledge and abilities. The author guides you through interpreting the signs and planets that inhabit the water houses in your natal chart and shows how they reveal specific innate talents. She describes how to develop the hidden powers revealed by your chart and offers practical advice for incorporating this knowledge into your daily life for spiritual growth and self-improvement. Sharing interpretation examples from her practice, she also explores how to embrace the challenge of the occult water houses so you can claim the many treasures that can only be found on the ocean floor of the psyche.

Psychedelic Refugee: The League for Spiritual Discovery, the 1960s Cultural Revolution, and 23 Years on the Run
By Rosemary Woodruff Leary. 1970
A memoir by one of the original female psychedelic pioneers of the 1960s • Shares Rosemary&’s early experimentation with psychedelics…in the 1950s, her development through the psychedelic revolution of the 1960s, and her involvement, at first exciting but then heartbreaking, with Dr. Timothy Leary • Describes her LSD trips with Leary, their time at the famous Millbrook estate, their experiences as fugitives abroad, including their captivity by the Black Panthers in Algeria, and Rosemary&’s years on the run after she and Timothy separated One of the original female psychedelic pioneers, Rosemary Woodruff Leary (1935-2002) began her psychedelic journey long before her relationship with Dr. Timothy Leary. In the 1950s, she moved to New York City where she became part of the city&’s most advanced music, art, and literary circles and expanded her consciousness with psilocybin mushrooms and peyote. In 1964 she met two former Harvard professors who were experimenting with LSD, Timothy Leary and Ralph Metzner, who invited her to join them at the Millbrook estate in upstate New York. Once at Millbrook, Rosemary went on to become the wife--and accomplice--of the man Richard Nixon called &“the most dangerous man in America.&” In this intimate memoir, Rosemary describes her LSD experiences and insights, her decades as a fugitive hiding both abroad and underground in America, and her encounters with many leaders of the cultural and psychedelic milieu of the 1960s. Compiled from Rosemary&’s own letters and autobiographical writings archived among her papers at the New York Public Library, the memoir details Rosemary&’s imprisonment for contempt of court, the Millbrook raid by G. Gordon Liddy, the tours with Timothy before his own arrest and imprisonment, and their time in exile following his sensational escape from a California prison. She describes their surreal and frightening captivity by the Black Panther Party in Algeria and their experiences as fugitives in Switzerland. She recounts her adventures and fears as a fugitive on five continents after her separation from Timothy in 1971. While most accounts of the psychedelic revolution of the 1960s have been told by men, with this memoir we can now experience these events from the perspective of a woman who was at the center of the seismic cultural changes of that time.

Close your eyes and ask yourself, ''what do I feel?''You might feel thirsty or tired. You might feel healthy and…well or perhaps a little under the weather. Maybe you can feel that you are standing or that you are leaning over. You may also feel the world around you - the shape and texture of an apple in your hand, the feel of a chair you''re sitting on.All these feelings have something in common, say psychologists and neuroscientists. They are all mental events, things that happen in the mind. But what if this is all wrong?What if it''s not just the mind, but also the body itself that feels? And not merely physical sensations, but other feelings that seem to have nothing to do with bodies. Things like ''emotions'' and ''intuitions'' - joy or rage, anxiety or optimism, or the feeling of being hard done by or misunderstood?Drawing on the latest research and a range of classic and contemporary thought, How You Feel shows you that your brain and your body are two parts of a single system that creates your mind and mental life. You will discover that you don''t have feelings, thoughts and emotions inside your body, you have them with your body. There can be no mind without the body.Psychology is no longer about the brain, or about ''mind and body'', it is about the whole that is you.

A British historian explores the mysterious Scottish culture of the Iron Age and Early Middle Ages whose enigmatic symbols adorn…standing stones. The Picts were an ancient nation who ruled most of northern and eastern Scotland during the Dark Ages. Despite their historical importance, they remain shrouded in myth and misconception. Absorbed by the kingdom of the Scots in the ninth century, they lost their unique identity, their language and their vibrant artistic culture. Among their few surviving traces are standing stones decorated with incredible skill and covered with enigmatic symbols. The Pictish Stones offer some of the few remaining clues to the powerful and gifted people who bequeathed no chronicles to tell the sagas of their kings and heroes. In this book, Medieval historian Tim Clarkson pieces together the evidence to tell the story of this mysterious people from their emergence in Roman times to their eventual disappearance.

An exploration of humans' symbiotic relationships with plants and chemicals presents information on prehistoric partnership societies, the roles of spices…and spirits in the rise of dominator societies; and the politics of tobacco, tea, coffee, opium, and alcohol. <p><p> Why, as a species, are humans so fascinated by altered states of consciousness? Can altered states reveal something to us about our origins and our place in nature? In Food of the Gods, ethnobotanist Terence McKenna's research on man's ancient relationship with chemicals opens a doorway to the divine, and perhaps a solution for saving our troubled world. McKenna provides a revisionist look at the historical role of drugs in the East and the West, from ancient spice, sugar, and rum trades to marijuana, cocaine, synthetics, and even television--illustrating the human desire for the "food of the gods" and the powerful potential to replace abuse of illegal drugs with a shamanic understanding, insistence on community, reverence for nature, and increased self-awareness.

By Lao Tzu. 2001
Traducido al español del chino clásico por Alejandro Bárcenas Una guía para vivir en armonía con nosotros mismos y la…naturaleza. Esta nueva traducción al español aspira a presentar el Tao Te Ching como una experiencia de lectura lenta y meditativa. El Tao Te Ching es sin duda alguna uno de los libros que mayor influencia ha tenido en la historia de la humanidad. A través de su longeva existencia ha servido de inspiración a un sinnúmero de artistas, pensadores, santos, guerreros, líderes políticos, y a muchos otros por igual, en el mundo entero. Su contenido toca una amplia gama de temas de naturaleza universal, los cuales pueden ser caracterizados de manera general como religiosos, filosóficos, místicos, cosmológicos, éticos y políticos. Dicha universalidad ha hecho que su legado se haya podido extender mucho más allá de ser el texto fundacional de un grupo religioso de China, al que con frecuencia se lo conoce como Taoísmo, lo cual ya de por sí le otorgaría un gran honor y le daría intrínsecamente un puesto de notoriedad histórica. Quizás sorprenda el alcance de su fama dado que en realidad se trata de un tratado bastante breve conocido también como el clásico de los cinco mil caracteres y notoriamente complejo. Pero esa complejidad, transmitida por un lenguaje de gran belleza poética, es quizás una de sus grandes virtudes, ya que permite un universo de interpretaciones que transforman a todo aquel que se sumerja en su lectura. --De la introducción de Alejandro Bárcenas
