An Exciting New View of Sexuality - Reincarnation - Parallel Realities
Neither a dry, philosophical treatise, nor a book of do-goody inspiration, Thought Forms is a practical, no-holds barred guide to the theory and practice of magic, for people who really want to turn their lives around.
Starting out with a description of your own astrological birth type, Thought Forms explains how and why your parents and society have entangled and misled you from your true intent and destiny - the reason you were born - and how you can get back on track.
With a light and witty exposition of the history and future of consciousness, Thought Forms explains that what we call everyday life - or the real world - is actually a specialized form of dreaming; that the world seems real to us only because we've been taught to consider it real; and that we can bring another world of magic and joyfulness into being just by changing what we believe is reality.
Combining teachings from Jungian psychology and shamanism, Thought Forms gives simple yet effective techniques for putting the theory into practice: for reversing your social conditioning disentangling yourself from the webs of other people; and putting yourself in touch with your true feelings.
Although the approach is astrological, no previous knowledge of astrology is required to understand and use the astrological techniques. In fact, the book is a great beginner's guide to the power and potentials of astrology.

You will find it easier to read Thought Forms if you first read the introductory essays in the series "What are Thought Forms?", posted in the Consciousness folder of the files of my free monthly ezine Magical Almanac: groups.yahoo.com/group/MagicalAlmanac/files/Consciousness/ (you have to sign in with a Yahoo! ID, but this is free if you don't already have one). I wrote these essays ten years after publishing the book, when I had a deeper understanding of the subject, and of its connection to certain trends in academic cognitive psychology and philosophy.
Bob Makransky is a systems analyst, computer programmer, and professional astrologer. For the past 35 years he has lived on a farm in highland Guatemala, where he studied Mayan astrology and shamanism with his teacher don Abel Yat Saquib, until don Abel's death in 2009.
Bob became interested in magic at Micky Russo's Spiritualist Church in San Francisco in the 60's, but it wasn't until twenty years later that he began channeling spirits himself. He moved to Guatemala in the early 70's and started a farm which operates on principles akin to Rudolf Steiner's Biodynamics, but with a Mayan slant.
Bob became involved with local Mayan priests because of Mayan calendar software he had written, which they had adopted; and he was given a ritual to invoke Mayan spirits himself.
