The Impersonal Life was written in around 1914 by Joseph S. Benner (published as 'Anonymous' at the time). It is a self-help book based broadly on Biblical teaching, but can be used by anyone of any faith. It is arguably a little 'gnostic' in presentation. Elvis Presley credited his success to this book. It is described by Amazon below:
'A Manual of Spiritual Teaching and Discipline. THE IMPERSONAL LIFE is the book that Elvis "had been looking for all his life." Why? Because as ALL Elvis biographers tell us, it spoke to him in such a clear understanding voice. It was so dear to Elvis that he began sharing it with the world by giving copies away by the case. It was ground zero for his self-explorationa and spiritual awareness. Here, Elvis found food for his soul, and he devoured it. We aptly call this the Graceland Edition of The Impersonal life "The Little Book in which Elvis Found the Light." Students of spirituality continue to find it so.'

The Kybalion was written in 1908 by William Walter Atkinson under the Nom de Plume 'The Three Initiates'. It describes the basic principles of Hermetic philosophy (not religion) which underlie much of NLP and modern Personal Development theory and technique.

Charles F. Haanel wrote The Master Key System and published in 1914. It is the most famous early book on the law of attraction. Charles F. Haanel was a successful businessman, a psychotherapist, a 32nd degree mason in the Keystone Lodge, a Shriner (Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine), and a member of the Society of Rosicrucians, a esoteric and occult order first documented in the 17th Century and probably dating back to the 14th Century. He originally released the book as a series of 24 weekly installments, the course priced at a huge $1500 per head. The MKS book, and other books by Charles F. Haanel, in pdf format, can be viewed at the link below:

Unlock Reality (UR) is an e-book that is only available over the internet. It is essentially a summary of Gnostic approach to Christianity, combining Christianity with elements of Buddhism, reinterpreting and rewriting the teachings of Jesus. It is packaged as something new and totally unique. The concept is all about becoming one's own personal 'God' or a part of 'God' and about co-operation and sharing; and incorporating concepts of the Law of Attraction as described by The Secret. A rather critical review of the book can be found at the third link below. I have yet to read this book but will comment further once I have done so. I have an old friend who is a keen proponent of this book.

Perfect Meditation is a 13 level meditation CD set. It uses Tibetan Buddhist sounds in the foreground such as Ohm sound, chants, and singing bowls, which are said to enhance the meditation and serve a 'spiritual' development purpose too:
www.perfectmeditation.com

LifeFlow Meditation 2.0 by Project Meditation is a 10 level meditation programme using one frequency per track rather than mixing multiple frequencies as in other products. The reputedly cutting edge technology uses Binaural Beats as well as Isochronic and Monaural Beats. Each track (one track per CD) is a dedicated frequency, and is listened to for 1-2 months before moving onto the next CD. One starts at CD 10 and works one's way down to CD 1. The progression is from Alpha down to Delta. There are no 'tones' but just natural sounds etc. One can either purchase all 10 Audio CDs (expensive) or buy the mp3 files on a monthly or bimonthly basis, one at a time (possbily ripping each one to CD for non-computer or mp3 player use). There is no difference in audio quality between the two formats in this case. Project Meditation also offer a free meditation course on their web site.
http://www.project-meditation.org

Binaural-Beats are suppliers of a variety of meditation CDs, but there is the binaural beats are very much in the foreground and can sound like one's head is in a washing machine, and I found they grated on his nerves after a while - akin to a form of torture. I have however heard glowing reports from other users.

It contains 2 sets of goggles, one blue light pair (for use in deep relaxation or before going to bed) and one white light pair, the latter for use whilst involved in other activities (have transparent centres of each lens - those who wear glasses would have to use contact lenses with them).

www.avstim.com
http://www.meditations-uk.com/products/mindspa.html

A (basic) PC interface only for customisable sessions (will work on a Mac if you have Parallels Virtual Machine or similar and a copy of Windows).

AV3X is a psychedelic meditation DVD 'movie' that uses pulsating flashes set to images, natural sounds and ambient music (not binaural beats). i.e. relying on pulsating flashes on your TV screen for the actual brain entrainment with the audio 'score' serving no brainwave entrainment purpose. The demo works best in full screen mode in a dark room, so that one can actually see the flashing properly.
www.av3x.com

VOICEEntertainment.net offers a sound file download or CD of the 'NASA Sound of the Sun exposed to water'. This is a sound file that is supposed to harmonically energise water so that it mimmicks water that has absorbed the sun's rays and energy signature. The concept was developed by David Sereda and Saida Medvedeva. It sounds similar in some respects to BioPro Technology's I-Water/I-H2O which uses sound waves to ionise/alkalise water. This is not strictly speaking brainwave entrainment, but more akin to Solfeggio tones.

BrainWave Generator is a freeware Windows-based Binaural Beats generator program can be downloaded at the link below.
