<b><b><b><b><i>New York Times Book Review</i> 10 Best Books of 2018</b></b><br /><br />A<i> New York Times </i>Notable Book <br /><br />The #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller.<br /><br />A brilliant and brave investigation into the medical and scientific revolution taking place around psychedelic drugs--and the spellbinding story of his own life-changing psychedelic experiences </b></b><br /><br />When Michael Pollan set out to research how LSD and psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult-to-treat conditions such as depression, addiction and anxiety, he did not intend to write what is undoubtedly his most personal book. But upon discovering how these remarkable substances are improving the lives not only of the mentally ill but also of healthy people coming to grips with the challenges of everyday life, he decided to explore the landscape of the mind in the first person as well as the third. Thus began a singular adventure into various altered states of consciousness, along with a dive deep into both the latest brain science and the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists. Pollan sifts the historical record to separate the truth about these mysterious drugs from the myths that have surrounded them since the 1960s, when a handful of psychedelic evangelists inadvertently catalyzed a powerful backlash against what was then a promising field of research.<br /><br />A unique and elegant blend of science, memoir, travel writing, history, and medicine, <i>How to Change Your Mind</i> is a triumph of participatory journalism. By turns dazzling and edifying, it is the gripping account of a journey to an exciting and unexpected new frontier in our understanding of the mind, the self, and our place in the world. The true subject of Pollan's "mental travelogue" is not just psychedelic drugs but also the eternal puzzle of human consciousness and how, in a world that offers us both suffering and joy, we can do our best to be fully present and find meaning in our lives.

The author of the <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>You Are the Placebo</i>, as well as <i>Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself</i> and <i>Evolve Your Brain</i>, draws on research conducted at his advanced workshops since 2012 to explore how common people are doing the uncommon to transform themselves and their lives. Becoming Supernatural marries the some of the most profound scientific information with ancient wisdom to show how people like you and me can experience a more mystical life.<br /><br />Readers will learn that we are, quite literally supernatural by nature if given the proper knowledge and instruction, and when we learn how to apply that information through various meditations, we should experience a greater expression of our creative abilities; that we have the capacity to tune in to frequencies beyond our material world and receive more orderly coherent streams of consciousness and energy; that we can intentionally change our brain chemistry to initiate profoundly mystical transcendental experiences; and how, if we do this enough times, we can develop the skill of creating a more efficient, balanced, healthy body, a more unlimited mind, and greater access to the realms of spiritual truth. Topics include:<br /><br />   • Demystifying the body’s 7 energy centers and how you can balance them to heal<br />   • How to free yourself from the past by reconditioning your body to a new mind<br />   • How you can create reality in the generous present moment by changing your energy<br />   • The difference between third-dimension creation and fifth-dimension creation<br />   • The secret science of the pineal gland and its role in accessing mystical realms of reality<br />   • The distinction between Space-Time vs. Time-Space realities<br /><br /><br />And much more...

<p><b>Is it possible to heal by thought alone—without drugs or surgery?</b></p><p>The truth is that it happens more often than you might expect. In <i>You Are the Placebo</i>, <b>Dr. Joe Dispenza</b> shares numerous documented cases of those who reversed cancer, heart disease, depression, crippling arthritis, and even the tremors of Parkinson’s disease by believing in a placebo. Similarly, Dr. Joe tells of how others have gotten sick and even died the victims of a hex or voodoo curse—or after being misdiagnosed with a fatal illness. Belief can be so strong that pharmaceutical companies use double- and triple-blind randomized studies to try to exclude the power of the mind over the body when evaluating new drugs.</p><p>Dr. Joe does more than simply explore the history and the physiology of the placebo effect. He asks the question: “Is it possible to teach the principles of the placebo, and without relying on any external substance, produce the same internal changes in a person’s health and ultimately in his or her life?” Then he shares scientific evidence (including color brain scans) of amazing healings from his workshops, in which participants learn his model of personal transformation, based on practical applications of the so-called placebo effect. The book ends with a “how-to” meditation for changing beliefs and perceptions that hold us back—the first step in healing.</p><p><i>You Are the Placebo</i> combines the latest research in neuroscience, biology, psychology, hypnosis, behavioral conditioning, and quantum physics to demystify the workings of the placebo effect . . . and show how the seemingly impossible can become possible.</p>

<p><b>Best Health Book</b> <b>of 2018 </b>- American Book Fest.<br /><b>Best Science Books of 2018</b> - Bookbub.</p><p>Every creation begins as a thought, from a symphony to a marriage to an ice cream cone to a rocket launch. When we have an intention, a complex chain of events begins in our brains. Thoughts travel as electrical impulses along neural pathways. When neurons fire together they wire together, creating electromagnetic fields. These fields are invisible energy, yet they influence the molecules of matter around us the way a magnet organizes iron filings.</p><p>In <i>Mind to Matter</i>, award-winning researcher Dawson Church explains the science showing how our minds create matter. Different intentions produce different fields and different material creations. The thoughts and energy fields we cultivate in our minds condition the atoms and molecules around us. We can now trace the science behind each link in chain from thought to thing, showing the surprising ways in which our intentions create the material world. </p><p>The science in the book is illustrated by many authentic case histories of people who harnessed the extraordinary power of the mind to create. They include:</p><p>• Adeline, whose Stage 4 cancer disappeared after she imagined "healing stars" <br />• Raymond Aaron and two of his clients, each of whom manifested $1 million in the same week<br /> • Elon Musk, who bounced back from devastating tragedy to found Tesla and SpaceX <br />• Graham Phillips, who grew the emotional regulation part of his brain by 22.8% in two months <br />• Jennifer Graf, whose grandfather’s long-dead radio came to life to play love songs the day of her wedding <br />• Harold, whose 80% hearing loss reversed in an hour <br />• Joe Marana, whose deceased sister comforted him from beyond the grave <br />• Rick Geggie, whose clogged arteries cleared up the night before cardiac surgery <br />• Matthias Rust, a teen whose "airplane flight for peace" changed the fate of superpowers <br />• Wanda Burch, whose dream about cancer told the surgeon exactly where to look for it <br />• An MIT freshman student who can precipitate sodium crystals with his mind <br />• John, who found himself floating out of his body and returned to find his AIDS healed <br />• Dean, whose cortisol levels dropped by 48% in a single hour</p><p>In <i>Mind to Matter</i>, Dawson Church shows that these outcomes aren’t a lucky accident only a few people experience. Neuroscientists have measured a specific brain wave formula that is linked to manifestation. This "flow state" can be learned and applied by anyone. New discoveries in epigenetics, neuroscience, electromagnetism, psychology, vibration, and quantum physics connect each step in the process by which mind creates matter. They show that the whole universe is self-organizing, and when our minds are in a state of flow, they coordinate with nature's emergent intelligence to produce synchronous outcomes. The book contained over 150 photos and illustrations that explain the process, while an "Extended Play" section at the end of each chapter provides additional resources. As <i>Mind to Matter</i> drops each piece of the scientific puzzle into place, it leaves us with a profound understanding of the enormous creative potential of our minds. It also gives us a road map to cultivating these remarkable brain states in our daily lives.</p>

A New World is Coming…If We Can Take It<br /><br />In 2018, the US Navy admitted that videos taken off the carrier Nimitz by pilots using ultra-sophisticated cameras, were of unknown objects with incredible flight characteristics. Add to this the past 70 years of UFO evidence, and it is now undeniable that something unknown is flying around in our skies. But why are they here?<br /><br />There are millions of close encounter witnesses who would say that they are here for us, and have already been in contact with us for two generations, while the official world and the media have been in denial.<br /><br />In 1987, author Whitley Strieber published Communion about his own close encounter. It was met with brutal skepticism...but not from other close encounter witnesses, who wrote him in their hundreds of thousands, telling of their own experiences. As it has been increasingly realized that something real is happening, a great university has archived this precious record.<br /><br />After 33 years of having them in his life, and an entirely new group of encounters starting in 2015, Whitley Strieber returns with a new vision of contact that will shatter all of our previous theories and beliefs and reveal the experience for what it is: the strangest, most powerful and potentially most important thing that has ever happened to mankind.<br /><br />From A New World<br /><br />As science advances, we are finding that the universe is far larger and more complex than we ever imagined, and mysterious beings like our visitors, which we dismissed as imaginary, are turning out to be real. This is calling to all of us to find a new life—a new world—in which they play a part.<br />As we are coming to realize that they are real and here, we also find ourselves asking the question that Col. Philip Corso asked so long ago when he found himself facing them: “What’s in it for us?”<br />They want to join us. They need us, but more, we need them—their wisdom and their insight into the peril of our world and how to ensure our future.<br />Dare we open our door to them?<br /><br />Praise for A New World<br /><br />“Whitley Strieber’s magical books about his encounters with the uncanny have captured my imagination since childhood. A New World find the master in top form, from a stirring and ultra high strangeness experience at Wounded Knee to grand speculations about consciousness, communion and the future of humanity. A fascinating, mysterious book.”<br /> <br /> --Josh Boone, director of The Fault in Our Stars<br /><br />“Mr. Strieber writes with the precious sanity of an intuitive savant. In describing so clearly true experiences that baffle most of us, he opens our minds to accept with grace meanings we need to learn are very real.”<br /> <br /> --Christopher Green, MD, PhD<br /><br />“Provocative and riveting. I couldn’t put it down. Strieber confronts the mystery of close encounter with fresh insight and depth, wrapping up his years of interaction with the phenomenon he calls “the visitors.” Now there is more urgency for contact than ever before, and this book explains how that might happen.”<br /><br /> --Leslie Kean, Investigative Reporter and Author of Surviving Death, a Journalist Investigates Evidence for an Afterlife<br /><br />“I entered Whitley Strieber’s New World and couldn’t put it down. Humankind has always wondered what extraterrestrial life would look like, be like, act like. The “visitors” of A New World are unlike anything we have conceived, in other words, they are truly alien. Enter this risky new world and leave warned…and empowered.”<br /><br /> --Diana Walsh Pasulka, Chair, Department of Philosophy and Religion, University of North Carolina, Wilmington, author of American Cosmic<br /><br />

"The ultimate haunted house story....."<br /><br />This is what readers are saying about The Crowlands:<br /><br /> "Easily one of the best horror books I’ve read lately. Hard to put down!" - 5 Stars <br /><br />"It's the best book I've read. Amazing writer." - 5 Stars <br /><br />"Dude, I recommend this book with all my heart, but making it my bedtime read was probably one of the stupid decisions I’ve made the past week. Now I cannot go to the bathroom without wondering how many children are with me. Great read!" - 5 Stars<br /><br /> "This book is the ultimate haunted house story. T M Creedy is now one of my new favorite horror writers!" - 5 Stars <br /><br /> ‘It’s a tiny shift in the stillness, no more than a flicker in my peripheral vision, but in my tired and overactive imagination there’s a child dressed in a long old fashioned nightdress, standing on the bottom step, staring back at me.’ <br /><br />Sara's on the run and she's found the perfect place to hide..... <br /><br />Sara Robinson – gambling addict, liar, thief – lived a hand-to-mouth existence in a dingy flat in London. Now she's running for her life after the chance to make some easy money goes horribly wrong. She has three things which might save her - a passport in someone else’s name, a ticket to Australia and a suitcase full of cash. <br /><br />Sara finds herself the custodian of a crumbling Victorian mansion known as Crowlands House, once a children’s home in the rural town of Ararat. At first, the airy property seems cool and welcoming in the harsh Australian sunlight. It’s a private haven where Sara can forget about what happened in London, and a place to escape the hostile local townsfolk. <br /><br />But there are things in the house that aren't quite right. And Sara can't ignore them forever. <br /><br />The doors that won't stay open, the scratching sounds in the walls at night, the objects that disappear only to reappear in a room she has never even been in.<br /><br />And then the children come out to play - one by shadowy one..... <br /><br />Sara begins to delve into the mysteries of the mansion and uncovers a secret so gruesome it refuses to stay buried. But the evils of the past will do anything to keep the dead silent, and Sara must find a way to survive the horror that still resides at Crowlands House. The crows in the gum tree wait patiently for the souls of the dead to leave the house, but he will never set them free.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • A renowned psychic medium teaches us how to recognize and interpret the life-changing messages from loved ones and spirit guides on the Other Side.</b><br /><br /> Laura Lynne Jackson is a psychic medium and the author of the <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>The Light Between Us</i>. She possesses an incredible gift: the ability to communicate with loved ones who have passed, convey messages of love and healing, and impart a greater understanding of our interconnectedness. Though her abilities are exceptional, they are not unique, and that is the message at the core of this book. Understanding “the secret language of the universe” is a gift available to all. As we learn to ask for and recognize signs from the other side, we will start to find meaning where before there was only confusion, and see light in the darkness. We may decide to change paths, push toward love, pursue joy, and engage with life in a whole new way.<br /><br /> In <i>Signs,</i> Jackson is able to bring the mystical into the everyday. She relates stories of people who have experienced uncanny revelations and instances of unexplained synchronicity, as well as others drawn from her own experience. There’s the lost child who appears to his mother as a deer that approaches her unhesitatingly at a highway rest stop; the name written on a dollar bill that lets a terrified wife know that her husband will be okay; the Elvis Presley song that arrives at the exact moment of Jackson’s own father’s passing; and many others. This is a book that is inspiring and practical, deeply comforting and wonderfully motivational, in asking us to see beyond ourselves to a more magnificent universal design.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Signs</i></b><br /><br />“This stirring guide . . . asserts that anyone can learn to understand messages that are sent from the ‘Other Side.’ . . . For readers struggling with loss who believe it’s possible to communicate with the deceased, this book will console and empower them to look beyond their suffering.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i></b><br /> <b> <br /></b>“This brilliant book by the renowned psychic medium Laura Lynne Jackson is a guidebook to and translator of the mysterious spiritual language of the universe. Through a series of touching personal stories, <i>Signs</i> teaches us how to discern and understand the myriad spiritual signs in our lives. Laura Lynne’s beautiful and compassionate heart shines through every page. This book is both excellent and important, and I highly recommend it to all.”<b>—Brian L. Weiss, M.D., author of <i>Many Lives, Many Masters</i></b>
