Aug 30, Keleigh rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I started this book over a year ago and just picked it up again. It’s the first-person narrative of Elisabeth Haich, Western yogi born in Hungary in the late 19th century, and her detailed recollection of her past life as an initiate in ancient Egypt.
The highlight of this dramatic story is not, believe me, the writing. Much of it sounds hackneyed and improbable, but once you get past that, the knowledge she conveys is rich and fascinating — yet another packaging of the same universal truths to I started this book over a year ago and just picked it up again. Much of it sounds hackneyed and improbable, but once you get past that, the knowledge she conveys is rich and fascinating — yet another packaging of the same universal truths told and retold the world over: When I first started reading the book, I had gotten stuck in the particularly dense section on sacred geometry, but ironically enough, the very next chapter was on astrology, one of my very favorite subjects, and illuminates the epochs, Biblical symbology, and reincarnation in ways I have never before seen or considered.
Haich founded the oldest yoga school in Europe, and her methods of self-realization are hugely inspiring. So glad I gave it a second try! View all 6 comments. Apr 02, Bharath rated it it was amazing. After I read the summary and some of the reviews it came across as similar to some of Brian Weiss’ books. Since I like Brian Weiss’ books, went ahead and got this.

The descriptions of the capabilities and fundamentals of the Sons of God is exceptional including the pyramids the science and purposelions drawing chariots, the spiritual exercises, telekinesis, concentration, and the trials leading to Elisabeth Haich’s Initiation.
She was always spiritually inclined, often going into deep thought. She also had broken recollections in dreams which she over time came to recognize as events from a past life.
She is also once seen practising yoga like poses though she has received no instruction. There is a fleeting description of one past life where after a series of misfortunes she ends up as a beggar — meeting on the streets the person who has brought her to this state. The initial pages of the book are slow and you wish it would move faster.
This wish is soon granted as she recalls vividly her past life as the daughter of the Pharaoh of Egypt, and the niece of the High Priest Ptahhotep.
This point onwards the book has sequences, descriptions and concepts unlike any other book I have read. This book is deeply spiritual ln vivid recollections of a time in Egypt where wisdom ruled. There are descriptions of two kinds of people — Gy of God who are highly conscious and evolved, while the Sons of Men find joy in material things the gender is mainly one of practice in those times eliswbeth there are daughters as well.
This is the time when the Sons of God hold power. Initiation takes the Sons of God to the highest level of consciousness, which are facilitated as a series of exercises dlisabeth Ptahhotep. Initlation of the incidents described are very detailed and the words instantly draw mental images. There are very interesting and detailed descriptions of the pyramids —why they were built, and what they stand for.
Elisabeth Haich’s ‘Initiation’
In her current life, Elisabeth meets and now recognizes many of the people who were close to her in the past life in Egypt. She is also able to speak innitiation the soul of Ptahhotep, once she is able to master the ability to reach higher levels of consciousness.
If spirituality as a genre interests you, Initiation is a must read! Apr 14, Nea added it Shelves: I have mixed feelings about this book and I actually stopped reading it after page I’m a believer in reincarnation but I just didn’t believe this author’s story. It didn’t feel inihiation in my heart.
Yes, there were some great spiritual teachings within these pages, but I found it difficult to focus on the message as I didn’t trust the messenger. A long, extremely detailed past-life memory that includes every word from every experience many lifetimes ago. And she just happens to have every secr I have mixed feelings about this book and I actually stopped reading it after page And she just happens to have every secret of the Universe.
I could list several “untruths” that stood out to me, but it isn’t important. My take on this book is that it has a lot to offer, but as always, nobody author, initiate or other can give us all the answers that our souls seek. Every individual must seek and follow her own path to her own answers. This book is not some grand shortcut.
I’m very tempted to drop everything I’m reading to start this one. No idea why I’m stoked to read it when I have no clue as to what it’s about.
Sadly, I haven’t even read the back cover. It just seems liked something I’d enjoy. A friend handed it to me one winter evening 2 years ago and told me that it reminded him of me.

It got me curious but not curious enough to start it then. Now it’s found baich way back to me and I shall devour it before my summer ends. I just skimmed over other review I’m very tempted to drop everything I’m reading to start this one. I just skimmed over other reviews and it seems that my feelings were right about it turning out to be spectacular.
Feb 18, Sophia rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: It’s an amazing account of one woman’s discovery of herself. In her journey she unlocks truths about science, math, yoga, religion, history, alchemy, peace, and so elisabetu more. I cherish this book and I think that everyone should read it, but I realize that most people can’t. It does start slow, admittedly, but it’s a necessary buildup to the passages that follow the first quarter of it.
If you can, push through it. If not, set it aside for another day, but do read it one way or another. This is a l It’s an amazing account of one woman’s discovery of herself.
This is a life changing book. Mar 14, Meghan rated it it was amazing. Every time I start trying to continue reading this book, crazy things happen in my life, whether it be realizations of my own or just crazy events. It’s also a bit dry at times, but keep going! Jan 31, Debasish Das rated it it was amazing. The book is not an easy read despite its relatively compact size of aprox pages, and the concepts will remain etched as a life changing experience.
In the book, the uaich describes that in one of her previous births, she was a princess in Egypt and successfully she climbed all the seven spiritual steps to be initiated under the guidance of spiritual master High Priest Ptahhotep.
We, the souls entrapped in our physical forms, are as ancient as time itself. The souls are the same, whether the body is that of a child or a grown up. And, if the manifestation, i. Therefore, the conscious mind of ours has an un-conscious counter part, a negative counterpart is always there inside our body for every conscious action and feeling.
What is the “self”, the soul or the consciousness: Recognizing oneself and to be at peace with oneself is the greatest spiritual achievement.
The consciousness gives life not only to our positive thinking but also brings to life the negative feelings like hatred, selfishness and other attributes which are associated with the physical world. The negative feelings can not exist on its own, it is created by the same force that creates the positive feelings. The Satan is the law of matter that has come alive through the same divine spirit. We are just inert matter without the spirit.
Andneither the positive thinking exist without the negative feelings. In a way, one needs the resistance of the negative forces to rise up against. Just like we can not have a thing on this planet without the resistance of gravity, against which we and all the elisageth and buildings are standing up.
Resistance is the absolute necessary force initiatin be used in building something. Like the yin and yang, the duality of nature, is something to experience and practice.
