10,000 dreams interpreted : a dictionary of dreams by Gustavus Hindman Miller( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gustavus Hindman Millers groundbreaking masterwork, published nearly a century ago, remains the most compelling and thorough study of all the symbols that appear in our dreamscape. Updated, beautifully designed, and wonderfully easy to follow, its an invaluable source of information, and key to understanding the unconscious impulses that guide us. Miller offers an enlightening introduction to dreams in history, dream types (spiritual, mixed, and allegorical), and to prescient dreams that provide a privileged glimpse into the future. The visual symbols themselves, accompanied by an array of splendid color drawings, photographs, and boxed sidebars, are divided into elegantly logical categories, from the animal kingdom to rocks and minerals, body and soul to birth and death, food and drink to clothes and jewelry. Everything is extensively cross-referenced, making it easy to look up the thousands of dream elements and solve the mysteries buried deep in the unconscious

The psychic world of Bishop Pike by Hans Holzer( Book )

5 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Psychic World of Bishop Pike is traced here from his early years to his death—and even beyond—by the country's most notable parapsychologist, Hans Holzer. According to Psychic Magazine, Holzer is "at the top of the list in the popular field" in dealing with psychic research subjects. From personal interviews with the late Bishop and on-the-spot investigations of psychic experiences. Hans Holzer has written about Bishop's encounters with the world of spirits and ghosts as well as communications beyond the grave. In this firsthand report by a scientifically trained investigator we learned for the first time of Bishop Pikes's early repression and his continuing involvements with such matters—seemingly against his wishes—as well as the traumatic experiences of direct contact with this dead son, James Jr. And his gradually growing conviction that death is not the end. Most of this material has never been published, not even by the Bishop himself. Even before sudden death came to James Pike in the desert, psychics all over the world started to come forth with their impressions of the bishop's strange disappearance and violent demise. Hans Holzer here analyzes this material, most of which came from mediums and psychic people working exclusively with him. A challenging picture of death under mysterious circumstances and possibility of foul play emerges from these disturbing psychic reports: Hans Holzer puts them together and presents the psychic evidence, pointing out that things may not have been what they seemed at first. Finally, in a dramatic confrontation, the author makes contact with the spirit of Bishop himself through the trance mediumship of eminent medium Ethel Johnson Meyers

Ghosts I've met by Hans Holzer( Book )

7 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hans Holzer's probing investigative techniques and expertise in the paranormal have earned him the reputation the world over as the Ghost Hunter. Here we follow him around the globe on the trail of the Uncanny and in pursuit of unexplained footsteps, apparitions, and other psychic phenomena. Along the way, he introduces us to the ghosts who still inhabit homes, cling to castle walls, and lurk at lonely country crossroads. These are just a few of the ghosts we meet: Grandma Thurston, whose ghost still works the loom, tugged at the Ghost Hunter's elbow in an eighteenth-century farmhouse. The Ghost at the Altar is that of a pastor whose wooden church burned down, destroying many years of work and many dreams. The specter of railroadman Joe Baldwin, who lost his head while trying to forestall a collision, still patrols a section of track in Wilmington, North Carolina. A haunted house in Los Angeles is the site of a nightly party where invisible guests celebrate as the horrified inhabitants listen on. We watch from a front-row seat as Holzer establishes a connection to the spirits behind these and other hauntings in deep-trance sessions conducted with renowned psychics. In these sessions, he eases the spirits' transition from this world to the next-and brings the reader face to face with haunted places and people around the world

11 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new pagans by Hans Holzer( Book )

10 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in English and French and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From New York to California, in big cities and rural towns, Hans Holzer—author of twenty-six books on psychic phenomena—has investigated the country's most intriguing phenomenon: pagan mystery cults based upon ancient religions. The New Pagans is Mr. Holzer's first-hand account of these fascinating rites based upon the use of natural magic. He gathered his facts from personal knowledge and participation in many strange and compelling ceremonies and rituals and describes them all in detail—rites of the worshippers of the Egyptian Isis, the Mesopotamian Astarte, Baal, the Sabaeans of pre-Roman Spain, and the Masters of Tibet. He shows why the New Pagans may well be the people of tomorrow, why so many of the young turn from orthodox religions to the more vital native cults. Throughout this vivid narrative, interspersed with never-before published prayers and incantations, Hans Holzer reveals the power behind the pagan ritual, what magic is, and how it accomplishes things
