The Seth Books

The main Seth books are a series of channeled sessions.  They can be read in order, but can also be picked up at random, based on your personal interests.  The first book I read, and the one that remains my favorite, is The Nature of Personal Reality.  It’s filled with information I can use in my own life.  Seth described it as “an excellent handbook, one that will enable people to manipulate in the world they know with greater effectiveness.” (Quoted from The “Unknown” Reality, Vol. 1, Session 682)  My second favorite is The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events which provides practical information for relating to the world in general.

A third book that also focuses on the practical application of the Seth material is The Magical Approach: Seth Speaks About the Art of Creative Living.  It’s main focus is on using your intellect and your intuition together.  I tend to think of it as Seth-Lite because it doesn’t go into all the “behind the scenes” information his other books provide.  In some ways, it reminds me of the Abraham-Hicks books, when it comes to the depth of the material.

Personally, I need the depth of the other books in order to effectively use the concepts.  I’ve read most of the available material, and have reread significant portions of it.  Each rereading brings new insights and new ways to use the information.  The material is very complex and takes time to absorb.  Some of it I only understand on an intellectual level; some of it is still beyond my current level of understanding.  My goal is to reach the more organic, intuitive level of comprehension that is needed to truly “live the concepts.”

After reading most of the regular Seth books, I added The Personal Sessions series to my collection.  This 7 book series is expensive because of their limited availability, but they provided some valuable insights into potential difficulties in using the material as well as possible solutions.  Even with Seth’s help, Jane and Rob had multiple problems trying to change their beliefs from conventional thinking to an entirely new perspective about reality.  My main caveat for this series is that it’s definitely not for everyone.  If you were distressed by the personal struggles revealed in The Way Toward Health, which was the last book dictated before Jane’s death, you may find The Personal Sessions series overwhelming sad.  Although I gained a lot of personally useful information, I had to take breaks from reading them to recover from their emotional impact.

Another possibility worth considering is the book, A Seth Reader, edited by Richard Roberts.  It’s a compendium of excerpts from 8 individual Seth books:  The Seth Material, Seth Speaks, The “Unknown Reality” Vol. 1 & Vol. 2, The Nature of the Psyche, The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Dreams, “Evolution,” and Value Fulfillment Vol. 1 & Vol. 2.

Most of the Seth books can be found on Amazon (both as print editions and Kindle editions) or other online bookstores.  The Early Sessions series has been published as Kindle books, and there are plans to eventually publish The Personal Sessions series as Kindle books, although no timeline has been given.  Print editions of The Personal Sessions, as well as other hard-to-find books and audios of some of the Seth ESP class sessions, can be ordered from
