There are many people I would like to quote, but blogging I think, needs to be original. That said, I would still like to recommend some others' works that have inspired me.
It matters what you read and watch. Notice your dreams after watching a violent show. Not as pleasant as going to sleep after reading a spiritual book. To receive those "big" dreams you need to have a relaxed, clear mind that is already heading toward insight.
So I recommend:
The Widening Stream: Seven Stages of Creativiy by David Ulrich
The New World of Self-Healing by Bente Hansen
Spiritual Growth by Sanaya Roman
A Brief History of Everything by Ken Wilber
CDs by Bohdipaksa
A couple of these authors talk about their guides in a very personal way. Don't let that prevent you from getting to the real book, because the information is good. I probably couldn't have an intelligent discussion of Ken Wilber's book, but I read it fast and I "got" it. I often do that with books. I know I need or already know the information. It seems like I can just put my hand on it and download it. But, of course , I can't. So I may re-read and certainly intend to read other books the authors have written.
There have been many, many more over the years, but these are a few of the best. Anything that hits you in the head at a bookstore is probably something you should read, too.
So, have fun learning and becoming inspired!
