1.Beyond Esoteric: Escaping Prison Planet (3) (The Esoteric Series)

If people would realize how little influence they have in life by the extreme and continuous involvement of governments and corporations, they would probably want to make different choices. This book by Brad Olsen shows you who and what has taken control, and how they manage to keep it well-hidden for you. In our opinion Beyond Esoteric is interesting for anyone who is ready to really open their eyes.

2.Modern Esoteric: Beyond Our Senses (The Esoteric Series (Book 1)) 

This second book is also by Brad Olsen, but it has relevant updates with new information and more images. Once you start reading how you are led to believe certain things, you want to know all about it to take life back into your own two hands wherever and whenever possible. We find this book revealing, because of its clear divisions into understandable sections, like Lifeology, Control, and Thrive.

3.The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are

Do you believe there is more to life than just your own physical body and mind? Are we all connected somehow? These questions, and the development of new technologies, are what Alan Watts writes about in this book. We find the topic interesting, because in a time where people seem to be feeling more alone, there is also the opportunity to find connection.

4.Astrology. The Library of Esoterica

Astrology is so much more than reading your horoscope every week. In the old days people looked up to the sky far more often than we do nowadays, and that is why we put Astrology: The Library of Esoterica on our list today. It tells you all you need to know about the history of astrology with lovely visuals..

5.Tarot Deciphered: Decoding Esoteric Symbolism in Modern Tarot

T. Susan Chang and M. M. Meleen take you on a journey of understanding the traditions of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, which is of great influence on modern tarot. We like this book, because it deals with each and every card from different angles.

6.Future Esoteric: The Unseen Realms (The Esoteric Series) Book 2

Book 1 and 2 are also on this list, and now book 3 is featured in our top 10 list of esoteric books. The book by Brand Olsen explains what is wrong with society today, and how it has had its effects on economic, environmental, and social aspects of life. Combine historic knowledge with modern science, and you will find a new truth.

7.Esoteric Handbook for the Entered Apprentice Mason (Volume 1)

What do symbols and allegories have to do with Freemasonry, and how can their explanation have an effect on yourself? If you are looking for the meaning of life, or why you are, then we highly suggest reading this book by Robert V. Lund. It will teach you about Masonic ceremonies and much more.

8.The Esoteric Structure of the Alphabet

Alvin Boyd Kuhn helps you discover why our alphabet is what it is. Every letter in the alphabet has a hidden meaning that you know nothing about when you grow up. Finding out how the alphabet has been used in history, is what we think makes this book very interesting.

9.Tarot. The Library of Esoterica 

Learn about the history of Tarot, and what the more than 500 cards actually mean by discovering what the symbols used on those cards mean. This book is the best choice if you are new to Tarot, but are wondering about Tarot in general, and how you can use the cards to explore yourself better.

10.The Book of Secret Wisdom: The Prophetic Record of Human Destiny and Evolution

We find this book extremely intriguing, because of the manuscript it is based on: the Book of Dzyan. The language (Senzar), location (in the Himalyas), and its accessibility (restricted) are hurdles that have been taken by Zinovia Dushkova, in order to bring hope and understanding to life on earth and why we exist. Many questions are answered, and these lead to new spiritual findings.

We cannot include all esoteric movements in this book list

Esotericism is a collective name for all kinds of spiritual movements. For example, think of alchemy, astrology, Gnosticism, mysticism, Neoplatonism, anthroposophy, esoteric Buddhism, new age, Reiki, Sufism, Tibetan Buddhism, Wicca, yoga … There is simply no room for all these elements in a top 10 list.
