The Ancients told us the object of this life is to free ourselves from suffering. Robert teaches their techniques in his books and workshops. Now, in his latest book he tells his lifestory and how he freed himself after years of being a victim of the negative ego -- the False Self.

Background Information



 Chaumont NY -- Higher Awareness spiritual teacher and author Robert Egby’s newly published book stretches across almost eight decades. Entitled “Kings, Killers and Kinks in the Cosmos” it is subtitled: “Treading Softly With Angels Among Minefields” and covers the writer’s travels on four continents.

            The author started his early life at Maidenhead in England as an avowed atheist yet  while suffering a disease which a doctor termed fatal, a spirit appeared and told him he would not die. He was aged seven.

             His great-grandmother, a Seer at Reading, predicted his life, but he refused to believe her—until it started happening. Doors opened as if by magic. Work as a teenager in a unique film studio in England, living in a desert tent in Egypt, an act in a local variety show got him into professional broadcasting, journalism and news photography. He became an international correspondent meeting kings and killers. One gunman saved his life—twice. He was arrested in Baghdad for photographing kings eating and in Cyprus he scooped a major Press award for a newspicture.

            Strange Cosmic energies called kinks steered him away from being in a major British train crash and sailing on a troopship that sank. A spirit voice warned him of a vicious  air attack and again saved him from walking through a Lebanese minefield.  The voice warned him as bullets smashed through his hotel room.

            In all this, he suffered from a negative ego but this was about to change.  The Seer had predicted he would go west though he vowed he never would, but it happened anyway. Arriving in western Canada, his work in broadcasting brought four awards for documentaries. Then he found himself living a double life, one professional in public relations the other a spiritual mystic. With the help of Spirit Guides and a Guardian Angel  he embraced a life of metaphysics, healing, dowsing  and higher learning, and in doing so dissolved the negative ego, the cause of all suffering. As predicted so many years before by the Seer, he set himself free and started to “work with the light” and help people understand Cosmic Forces. This book is the story of his personal quest. His life story is amply illustrated with over seventy photographs, most of which are his own.

            Today, in the United States he teaches a release from suffering and how to attain Cosmic consciousness.  The author believes kinks in the Cosmos happen in everyone’s life but many people fail to recognize these as opportunities and go with the flow. He became an international  journalist and news photographer without any formal college or university training.

            He is the author of three other books: Cracking the Glass Darkly; The Quest of the Radical Spiritualist and INSIGHTS: the Healing Paths of the Radical Spiritualist. The last two each scored “Finalist” citations in the USA Book News “Best Books” awards.  His books are available through LSI/Ingram, Amazon and at bookshops around the world.


An Autobiography by Robert Egby

ISBN: 978-0-9832404-0-2

Also on Kindle

Pages : 410 includes over 70 photographs.





INSIGHTS: The Healing Paths of the Radical Spiritualist is Robert's third book takes healing to the radical limits, full of anecdotes, case histories and development exercises. If you're looking for practical healing, this is it.

It tells the story of the Vietnam vet, a hero who needed time to heal; Jaime who slept and suffered in the “cancer bed” that killed her parents; a man suffering back pains with no concept of past lives is healed by Jesus in Jerusalem. There’s the intriguing story of how spirit led the reluctant author on a mysterious mission to help eight earthbound spirits in New Mexico.

“Insights” is a book for all healers, regular Spiritualist healers to certified and professional healers. It’s also for armchair folk wanting to know what radical healing is all about.

It’s a colorful, sometimes dramatic, sometimes an emotional walk through the realm of  opportunities for healing, most of it written through personal knowledge.

            Robert is an accredited hypnoanalyst, certified sound healer, dowser, ordained minister, mystic and teacher of Spiritualism. In his earlier books “Cracking the Glass Darkly” and the award-winning “The Quest of the Radical Spiritualist” the author urges all healers to “dissolve” the negative ego, the False Self to ensure positive and untainted adventures in healing.

The Quest of the Radical Spiritualist: This is Robert's second book. It's for Spiritual adventurers who desire more than sitting in a pew or attending a message service in a Spiritualist Church. It takes the Quester through easily presented metaphysics, sacred energies, psychic and intuitive abilities, mediumship, talking and conversing with spirits, automatic writing, life in the Spirit World, and some philosophical thoughts about God, the Universal Mind, the Creator. Many Questers find their limitations, old fears and uncertainties blocking their path. Robert combines the basic teachings of Cracking the Glass Darkly in a series of exercises along the way. He also adds several of his own emotional and dramatic adventures. Robert is on, talking about his latest book and describing an unusual meditation contained in its last pages. Enjoy.  Love, Light and Blessings.

Meanwhile, here's the writeup on his first book.

Cracking the Glass Darkly: Lots of people suffer from things said wrongly, broken relationships, limited mind-sets and sleepless nights. Did you know there is a part of you that is beyond that mechanical suffering and mind chatter? It's called the True Self, and it's that part of you that has the key, the way to a successful and satisfying, happy life.

In his life Robert worked as a journalist, award-winning news photographer, an accredited war correspondent, and saw suffering caused by egos and wars of all shapes and sizes. International wars and personal wars in the home. He started studying the teachinges of the mystics -- the Sufis, Gurdjieff, Ouspensky, Jean Klein, Alan Wats, Vernon Howard. They each taught a way out, a doorway to the freedom from personal suffering caused by the negative ego, the False Self.

Robert's book, puts it simply and effectively. The way to dissolve the negative ego and cast off limitations and hurts. How to enjoy living in the Here and Now. As his early Yoga teacher said frequently: "If you are not happy right now, when will you be happy?"

Robert then takes the reader through a journey of learning to love yourself unconditionally. If you don't love yourself, it's probably because you were told somewhere in your life "You are not lovable." They were wrong!  It's all right to love yourself, in fact it's the best thing you can do to attain a healthy outlook and good company.

Then there is Cosmic Consciousness, a spiritual state which is impossible to imagine, it just has to be experienced. Once the negative ego is dissolved, and you start to enjoy living in the Now, and loving yourself, something else happens. You start to feel the consciousness of the Cosmos, the Universe. There is a strange, exotic silence, a "peace that passeth all understanding."

These healing aspects do not mean you laze off into a meditative stupor. Far from it. You can still be part of a hectic life: on the stockmarket, racing around selling real estate, digging ditches for the municipality, or wrestling with kids as a homemaker. But you feel different and you see things differently.

After years of teaching, someone in Spirit said "Write a book." So Robert did. The result: Cracking the Glass Darkly: Discovering the Power and the Ecstasy of Your True Cosmic Self.  Spirit also advised: "Academics write for academics. You write as a journalist for people so that everyone can understand, learn and be free from suffering."  Robert did just that for both books. Love and Light.
