Hello. Well I guess if you have got this far, you already know who I am. However, just in case you have forgotten, my name is Adrian Geoffrey Gilbert: not to be confused with Adrian David Gilbert who is an entirely different author. He writes books on military subjects. which is about as far away from my work as you can get. So please don’t get us confused when looking at books listed by Amazon under the name ‘Adrian Gilbert’ . It’s not that I am schizophrenic: there really are two of us!
My own field of interest is ancient mysteries, mysticism, alternative history and self-development. I have been researching these subjects for over forty years now and not without result. And when I say research, I do mean just that. Like you I expect, I deplore the plethora of superficial trash that get churned out every year in this genre, most of which only serves to inflate the egos of the authors and further confuse the reader. You see, at heart I am a scientist. I studied Chemistry and Physics at University and though I am a Leo, I have Virgo as my rising sign. The astrologers among you won’t be surprised to hear that I like to be my own boss (Leo), or that I am fanatically picky when it comes to research (Virgo). I used to be a computer Analyst/Programmer (also Virgoan) at one time and though I do my best to hide the scaffolding, my books tend to be highly structured. I am not one of those authors who writes a sentence once and that is what gets published. I write, re-write, write again, shift paragraphs, change orders of chapters, delete large chunks and generally worry my books to near-death before I feel comfortable releasing them to the people who really matter: my readers.
I am also someone who cares very much about the truth. You see we all have opinions and theories about ancient mysteries and that is fine. However the scientist in me (Saturn rising) demands that before I present a, possibly controversial, theory I must first get my facts straight. I like to visit the places I write about, read as much as possible about the subject and then present what I hope will be useful new insights. Of course I am not the pope so I am not infallible; but I do try to get my facts straight even though this can make writing more difficult and tedious than if I told lies, pretending that these had been ‘channeled’ to me by some mysterious entity.
That is not to say I do not believe in the divine. I certainly do. I have had many mysterious and even miraculous experiences on my journey. Some of these I recount in my books though there is much more that I have yet to tell. I am absolutely convinced that this world is far more mysterious and interesting than contemporary culture credits. I also ‘know’ that humans are not just biological machines that live, die and leave progeny. We are spirits who temporarily inhabit bodies for the purpose of experience and also to carry out necessary tasks in the material world. Individually and collectively we are evolving but this is not a matter of blind chance. We are where we are because of the interaction between mind and matter within the zone of time and space. Yet in our innermost self we are sparks of divinity that are neither born nor die. I learnt this when I was 21 and practicing yoga. If you don’t believe me, then I am sorry. You will have to follow the path yourself if you want proof.
Talking of the path or ‘Way’, this is a mystical concept of great antiquity. As I said at the beginning of this piece, I have been consciously following my path for over 40 years. I dare say you have been following yours for a long time as well. This journey, from slothful ignorance to a proper understanding of one’s place in the world and universe, is what is described so eloquently by John Bunyan in his classic work ‘The Pilgrim’s Progress’.
Now I can’t claim to be Bunyan’s equal in quality of prose but for most of my books I have made use of the idea of the Pilgrim following the Way. They generally follow a schematic of beginning in a state of relative ignorance, going on a journey and through this finding the answers to questions that are posed at the beginning. This is particularly true of my book ‘Magi’, which is the first that I am now placing in kindle format. This is actually my all time favourite book to date in that it traces some very important steps on my own journey: questing for the truth concerning the Gospel story of the three wise men. However, before you dismiss this subject as boring, I should like to add that it is not really the wise men themselves that interest me. It is the cultural background from which they sprang and what this tells us both about the real origins and purpose of Christianity that interests me.
To this end I literally leave no stone unturned. My journey takes me to Eastern Turkey where even today there are remnants of old temples and other monuments that speak of a tradition all but forgotten in the west. My journey involves a wide pageant of history and a fitting together of clues that, bit by bit like a jig-saw puzzle, gradually reveal the picture of an esoteric, mystical version of Christianity that is quite different from whatg is taught in our ‘high street’churches. What I would regard as the real mystic tradition is quite literally linked to the stars.
Some people will, of course, condemn my work as heresy. To them I would reply: where, other than hearsay is your evidence? Are you aware, for example, that the 6th of January was not originally the feast of the Epiphany or even ‘Old Christmas’? It was the date celebrated as the Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River and this event had a cosmic meaning that was echoed in the stars. On that day (6th January 26 AD) the sun was placed in the constellation of Capricorn (the goat) underneath the ‘baptising’ hand of Aquarius (signifying John the Baptist). The esoteric message is clear to those with the eyes to see it: Jesus begins his mission by acting as a ‘scape goat’ who takes on the sins of the world. This is in accordance with the Mosaic tradition [Lev.16:20]. The scapegoat has the task of taking the sins of the nation back to ‘Azaziel’, the leader of the Nephilim or ‘Fallen Angels’. If you read the story of the Baptism in the light of this passage, it becomes understandable how Jesus goes immediately into the desert to be tempted by the Devil, who we can understand as being the same entity as Azaziel.
This is just one event in the life of Jesus that is written in the stars. There is much more. Magi is not a book that is intended to be read once and then discarded. It contains a great deal of material that explains much that has been forgotten about the connections between Christianity, the star-religions of the East and our own destinies. If you read it without prejudice and are willing to make the effort to see what it is really driving at, it will reward you a hundredfold.
Magi is only one of my books though. To date I have written 10 (not all of which are yet published) and I have plans to add to this number. I personally am very excited by the new ebook technology. I intend to put more of my existing books into kindle format and even, in due course, to write other books that will only be available in this medium.
I see the breaking down of the walls between writer and reader as a great benefit and I welcome the chance here to share with you my thoughts. I hope you enjoy my work and that you find it a help when following your own paths, wherever these may take you. For as a great man once told me, we each have our own destiny in this world and you will only ever feel truly satisfied if you fulfil yours. 
The Orion Mystery: Unlocking the Secrets of the Pyramids
A revolutionary book that explains the most enigmatic and fascinating wonder of the ancient world: the Pyramids of Egypt.
In 1993, German robotics engineer Rudolf Gatenbrink discovered a sealed door within the Great Pyramid of Giza–a door left unopened for 4,500 years. With this discovery, Robert Bauval–who spent the decade prior to the discovery researching the pyramids–and Adrian Gilbert used astronomical data to reveal that more than just tombs, the pyramids were created to serve as a gateway to the stars; in the process, they uncovered what they believe to be the key to the plan that governed the construction of the great pyramids: the Orion Constellation.
Magi: The Quest for the Secret Tradition
Written by the co-author of “The Orion Mystery” and “The Mayan Prophecies”, this book secret takes the reader through the past, revealing how secret knowledge was both preserved in the East in the form of monumental architecture and at the time of the Crusades, passed westwards to the fledgling states of Europe. One of the best known stories of the Bible is the journey of the Magi as witnesses of the Nativity of Jesus, yet who were these “wise men”? Where did they come from and what could possibly have been their motive in making their journey to Bethlehem? In this book, such questions are answered in an exploration of the Magi legend. Threaded into an epic story are the results of Adrian Gilbert’s extensive research. The truth is that not only was the birth of Jesus widely expected throughout the Middle East, but that Christianity itself has its deepest roots in the “pagan” mysteries of Egypt, Persia and Mesopotamia.
Join Adrian Gilbert on an exciting look at the Mayan Calendar and the many mysteries it holds. Discover why the year 2012 is predicted to be a year of exciting and extreme changes and the reasonings behind these changes. Learn why and how the ancient Maya, a people of exceptional astronomical skill and understanding, invented a calendar so accurate that it ends exactly when the Sun enters a specific portion of the Milky Way as it rises on the Winter Solstice, December 22, in the year 2012, marking the shift to a new age. Look at the possibility that we are, according to those ancient people, actually living through the end times.”
The Holy Kingdom : The Quest for the Real King Arthur
Lost in the mists of time and legend is the true history of Britain before the arrival of the Romans and after their departure. Using ancient historical records, this book asserts that Britain was never fully conquered by the Romans but retained its culture as its royal families intermarried with the caesars. Two British kings, both named Arthur, became the single King Arthur of myth and legend. As a result of 40 years of research, this book reveals the location of the graves of both Arthurs, the burial place of the “true cross of Christ,” and many other mysteries. It challenges many orthodox beliefs perpetuated by a church that long ago lost touch with its roots.
Blood of Avalon: The Secret History of the Grail Dynasty from King Arthur to Prince William
The story of King Arthur and the Grail did not end with his death: research reveals that, through Princess Diana, Prince William Arthur Windsor is descended from Arthur and could be the “Once and future king.” In this extraordinary book, Adrian G. Gilbert reveals the location of many sites central to the Arthurian legend and crucial core teachings of Christianity that were kept secret—until the day a new Arthur, one with the holy blood of the family of Mary, would once again sit upon the British throne.
Using the same techniques that unlocked the secrets of the Egyptian pyramids in The Orion Mystery, Gilbert penetrates the mysteries of the prophesies set forth in the Old and New Testaments. In Signs in the Sky, the author brings his acute understanding of esoteric astrology to his investigations of ancient Egypt, the pyramids, and the Bible. He explains how the constellation Orion, known to ancients as the primary symbol for the “son of man in heaven,” is the key to understanding many of the prophesies contained in the book of Revelation as well as other books in the Bible. Many age old questions are addressed, such as, “ Are we at the end of one of history’s great ages? And what does the next one hold in store? Buried within the Old and New Testaments, Gilbert has found what may be the key to our future: the signs in the sky.
Secrets of the Stone of Destiny: Legend, History, and Prophecy
Within the world there are certain objects, talismans if you like, that seem to possess a curious almost magical power. Like Aladdin s lamp, ownership of such objects is a matter of destiny, and changes in ownership can signify even apocalyptic events. This book concerns another talisman, perhaps the oldest and greatest of them all: the Lia Fail or Stone of Destiny. To look at it is to see an unassuming worn block of stone with simple iron handles protruding from its sides. Yet the mythology surrounding it is extraordinary. It predates even the Ark of the Covenant by hundreds if not thousands of years. What secrets does this Stone possess? What is its destiny? Author Adrian Gilbert looks at the stone in a way never before attempted and shows how its very dimensions provide hidden evidence that links it both to the pyramids of Egypt and to the Druidic religion of Britain, and finally to its prophetic destiny.
