This isn't the same book, but it jarred a memory, you might like it -

Childhood's End; Arthur C. Clarke

The Earth is being overseen by a group of Aliens. The Gov't tries to cover them up. When they show themselves they are misunderstood as being evil because they looked like what we would interpret as a devil and just happened to be there during Armegedon, when in fact they had previously hovered over the Earth trying to protect us from our own human destructiveness of the planet and predjudice which in itself was responsible for the fall.

They carried with them small globes/balls that held enlightenment, proving among other things to us, that each of our religious icons were false and fed a sense of lonliness and separation depleting our energies while feeding ego. They urge us to evolve into a species of energy and describes us each as islands in the ocean and when we come to true evolution the ocean disappears and the islands are connected.

There's a spaceship, if I remember, and a group of underground people who do know about them, trying to destoy the aliens with one of them sneaking on board. One of the aliens knows the person is there and takes them on a journey of other planets they have helped by gifting them their energy. When children sang on some of these planets, it was really how the energy was channeled. Depending on the planet, the form the aliens would take would differ. Kind of makes you wonder why we got the Devil..lol.

I can actually see something like this happening, really...

Hey Karin, Have you figured this out yet? I keep thinking about it. I come across books that have a part similar to what you remember, but not all of it. This part:

Quote:
I think when they first landed they started exploring the vegetation and they experimented with tasting different things and saw strange reactions when the touched and ate them, so they began to catalog everything. I believe one of the members of the team was a botanist or biology specialist, while another was a language specialist and interacted with the planet's inhabitants to find a way to communicate with them. I am pretty sure that at least one or two members of the team died from some kind of clash with the biology/culture of the planet.

reminds me of Hurricane Moon by Alexis Glynn Latner, except there's no recognizable inhabitants on that planet. I reviewed it here. And the energy flow sounds familiar too (in fact I use something like it in the fantasy novel I'm writing).

No, still haven't figured it out (and now I'm mad at myself for not keeping a list of every book I've ever read!). But I might just have to read more science fiction now since everyone has some suggestions that sound intruiging. Definitely still want to find that book though - I'm determined!
