Format: Paperback
I first read Initiation 25 years ago, in all that time, I have never found a book that more clearly explains the history and purpose of human lives. Haich provides detailed information about the underlying spiritual reasons for details of human history and writes a fascinating account of what we are experiencing now, why and what is ahead. In 25 years, I have never found anything to contradict what she wrote so many years ago.

I re-read this book almost every other year, wrote a play from it and consider it the touchstone of my life.

I've been encountering a few paranormal experiences of late and never really understood what I was going through until my boyfriend recommended I read this book. The book was absolutely mind blowing for me because every now and then it would refer to a few things that I have experienced myself. It got me realising that I should never let unique experiences pass without questioning or delving into the matter further. I must say this book absolutely opened my eyes to greater potential and possibilities.

Format: Paperback
I have read many books on spiritual awakening over the past 15 years including "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" (by Dan Millman) mentioned by one of the other readers who wrote a review for this book and no other single book reached me in the way that "Initiation" did.

Sure there is the girlie "fluff" but that is to be anticipated considering it was written by a woman and mother. I guess the effect this book may have on a person is in great part determined by where they are in their life spiritually at the time they read it, but I must say that this book caused me to look deeper and to consider more than any other I had read before.

Yes it gets slow going at times and yes it changes tempo or style wiout prior warning, but such is real life. Its pages are filled with such descriptive imagery about ancient Egypt that anyone studying Egyptology or Hermeticism will find it a refreshingly different read. I may find another book that comparitively teaches me more or inspires an even deeper insight than this book could have ever accomplished, but then, I needed this book to unlock the door. Now that that is done, I can roam all through my spiritual mansion undeterred, exploring what all the new rooms have lying in store for me -for getting past that locked front door was my biggest challenge and this book was the allegorical "key".

This book may not be the end, but it will definately afford one more step towards that end.

Format: Hardcover
I just happened to go to a psychic and she told me that my spirit guides told me I should read this book. My spirit guide said that it would explain all the questions I have ever had about god, where I came from, and my past lives. And boy did it ever. The book goes in to great detail about birth, life, death, reincarnation, zodiacs, and so much more. I recommend it to anyone who is confused about god, religion or their spiritual well being. The content of this book will explain everything. I read every word in two days and accepted it as truth, not fiction.

Format: Paperback
It was a difficult decision to rate this as a 10 until I gave up the possibility of reading a book that resulted in immediate enlightenment. This fictional journey into the initiation process in ancient Egypt takes the reader philosophically and emotionally into an expanded state of awareness. Not your average piece of fiction. This is a book that I have read several times through the course of my adult life. I would not want to be without a copy on my bookshelf.

Format: Hardcover
I, like many others, was told I had to read this book. I purchased it within days and literally inhaled the wisdom and truth that unfolded from its pages. I have just begun my spiritual journey in earnest and this book has pushed me further than any other reading has thus far. I felt I had lived it. as often I knew what the author would say before reading the printed words. I have since recommended it to others and found out it is no longer in print...as it turns out I picked up the last copy in a Tri-city area. I knew then I was chosen to receive this knowledge and I know I will refer to its guidance for my lifetime and plan to share it with as many as I can so we can all be a part of healing our souls and bring our lives closer to our creator...This novel has influenced me in a positively spiritual way.

Format: Paperback
I read this book for the first time in my early teens, and twenty years later I am still coming back to it. With every read there is more recognition, truth and beauty to discover. There are so many more facets to the story than I suspected during the first read. Although the book lifts off slowly and some later chapters are decidedly difficult at a first confrontation with the subject matter, I recommend this book with all my heart to anyone even remotely interested in the esoteric sciences.

As someone who has loved and studied ancient Egypt all her life, I was excited to come across this book. Even though the writing style was not exactly to my taste, and there were too many passionate repetitions of her feelings vs. other people's more limited perspectives, I kept reading because much of what the author says struck a chord inside me, and there were some fascinating stories involving people she met and what they told her (concerning Ayurvedic medicine, for example.) There's no doubt the author was an intelligent, sensitive, creative and all-around wonderful human being. And yet... something didn't feel quite right; I was finding it increasingly difficult to suspend my disbelief when I got to the part where she supposedly remembers a past life in ancient Egypt in at once astonishing, and vague, detail. Then certain passages really began to bother me: "...And so it has come about that this animal-like material race of cave men is experimenting with divine laws, growing mightier and more powerful until the time comes for it to begin ruling the earth. Before leaving the earth, however, the higher race had to implant its special powers in the lower race. Through the operation of the laws of heredity, this will enable the lower race...to rise out of matter again..." Apparently, the Sons of God, those who were left after what sounds like the destruction of Atlantis, interbred with a lesser breed of human being, the so-called cave men, and created the ancient Egyptian race that built the pyramids. "'Father,' I ask... 'Didn't the daughters of the Sons of God also take husbands from among the sons of men? Why have only the Sons of God begotten children with the daughters of men?' '(Because...)God still remains pure if he begets children with a daughter of the sons of men.Read more ›
