The authors, who both have a background in law enforcement themselves, have compiled a pretty comprehensive summary of numerous cases involving UFO close encounters reported by law enforcement and military personnel from Maine to California, as well as many locations throughout the world, including England, Wales, France, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, Japan – well, you get the idea! A lot of places!

You’ll also read about the author’s and their own UFO encounters. There’s even a chapter devoted to many of the fascinating Brazilian cases that the noted journalist Bob Pratt investigated and documented. There are certainly lot of solid UFO cases to read about here!

Now sing along with me….Bad aliens, bad aliens, what ya gonna do when they come for you! ……… Okay, seriously though, I highly recommend this one.

The authors of this book delve deeply into the interplay between our emotions, chronic illnesses and pain. They reveal how many chronic ailments are not just related to germs and genes, but also our emotional make up. They explain how many of these conditions are linked to certain emotional types and what healing therapy works best with what type. They explore acupuncture, hypnosis, biofeedback, meditation, yoga, guided imagery, and relaxation techniques, providing an easy to take assessment survey that helps you to identify your emotional type, what ailments you are most susceptible to, and what healing strategies work best for your particular emotional type personality.

This book contains the latest scientific data and information. It explains the emotional ties behind the 12 most common chronic illnesses (i.e., asthma, allergies, chronic fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, post-traumatic stress disorder, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritic, and ulcers). At the back, the book contains a lot of helpful resource information, like 13 pages listing numerous websites that provide a vast amount of medical and scientific information, as well as chapter notes, a comprehensive bibliography, and an index.

A thought-provoking book that just might change the destiny of your own life – for the better!

Here’s another well done, comprehensive UFO book detailing more than 250 thought-provoking UFO/alien encounter cases from around the world, with credible witnesses describing incredible high-strangeness phenomena at every turn. The author also takes a detailed look at the U.S. Government’s alleged role in attempting to conceal hard UFO evidence from the public eye since 1947. This is a great book for beginners and a handy reference book for the old-timers. A lot of information (more than most of us will process)!

Another recommendation from this reviewer!

Now we’ll take the reader to the other far end of the paranormal spectrum with this book, whose author is described as a practicing psychic medium and intuitive advisor with clientele from around the world. The author begins by explaining what a Lightworker is, beginning by clearing up any misconception that it has anything to do with people from the electric company! First, if you haven’t done so already, you’ll need to wrap your mind around the concept of reincarnation. Lightworkers, the author explains, are a certain breed of souls who incarnate upon earth again and again with the goal of enlightening, guiding and teaching their fellow humankind important truths. Presumably a “literal army” of these souls are coming to the world at this time, a time that the author sees as a dark and critical time in human history when such souls are very much needed. Unfortunately, many have forgotten their divine purpose and intent to come here (spiritual amnesia) and it will take certain triggering life events to help awaken them to the “truth on a soul level” and their part in this particular mission here and now.

This book is designed to provide the tools of the trade needed for the average Lightworker to perform his or her spiritual work here on planet earth. The chapter titles help to explain the direction the reader will move into, with such titles as We Are All Energy, Discovering Your Origin, Psychic: Lifting The Veil, Sensitivity: Stimulation Overload, Awareness: Cosmic Consciousness, Coming Out of the Lightworker Closet, etc.
