Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Fans of Grabhorn's bestseller Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting are in for a surprise with this book. Here, the author takes another run up the challenging mountain of overcoming negative thinking. But this time, she offers a cosmic explanation for negativity, positing good and evil forces at work in the universe and an ultimate struggle between those forces. She says these forces are quite directly at work in her life and the lives of a select group of the 100 people now creating "a new grid of light on this planet" to counter the pervasive influence of "the Others" (Grabhorn's term for cosmic forces of darkness that feed on negativity). She claims the 100 people "signed up" for this job before coming to this earth, knowing in advance that the task of birthing a new world would be "disagreeable" and difficult, in addition to telling readers that they may be among the chosen few. Like her previous work, this book is grounded in life experience. She claims that these forces produced a debilitating physical and emotional breakdown that led her to write to Dutch doctors to seek help with committing suicide before she was able to channel-her word-the information she presents here. In a practical vein, she offers three incantation-like statements that she says will help exorcise the dark forces from consciousness. She readily acknowledges in her characteristically breezy tone that her story strains credulity ("as off-the-wall as this book may seem to you") and is a little less orthodox than the usual self-help positive-thinking tome. This fusion of self-help with Armageddon produces a highly original marriage of two popular American topics.

Format: Paperback
This is a difficult book to review. I will give 5 stars to the underlying message that Ms. Grabhorn is trying to convey. Perhaps her most important message is that not only does our negativity run deep, but it is being actively manipulated by other energies and entities, which she calls "The Others." As a student of spirituality and metaphysics for over fifteen years, I have known for some time that many "darker" entities have been around us and feeding off our negative energies. The wave of light coming onto the planet, which she calls "Psi," has been described by various sources as well.
However...
This information is not as startlingly new as she claims. Where the book breaks down is in her interpretation of the information she received (3 stars) and the organization and writing (2 stars). I don't doubt that her experiences and the information she received was real; it's just that her interpretation seems a bit immature and has traces of mania (I am all too familiar with manic energy, having personally experienced it myself). This would have been a much better book had she not rushed to publish quite so soon and allowed the cosmic dust to settle.
Her story about the birth of the Cosmos, including "brothers" Abe and Lucifer was mildly interesting but far too long and rambling. Editing was needed here.
I have a number of nitpicky issues with her reasoning. For example, she claims that her Primary Guide (aka Higher Self) was not 100% of the Light; but by definition the Higher Self is that aspect of self that *is* entirely in Light. So this part was a little confusing. There is also a thread of victimhood running through the book. She was fine before "The Others" started messing around with her.

I read this book a few weeks ago and struggled with the words to describe it here. At the time that I bought it, no one else had reviewed the book, and I wish that I'd written sooner. First of all, I think Ms. Grabhorn was very brave in putting this book out there, and I applaud her for her guts. It is definitely a dark work, and it was a struggle to follow the author to the conclusion. She warned the audience that her words would sound crazy. And indeed, they did. But (and this is a big BUT), the picture she ends up painting of our modern world rang true for me. We do live in a very negative world, on a planet that is dying a little more every day. Many of us who are merely seeking answers, with the very best of intentions, do unwittingly feed the sometimes less than noble agendas of those around us, be it family members, politicians or (as Grabhorn puts it) "The Others". The author's advice amounts to not putting blind faith in guidance, channelers, psychics, etc. without doing some protection work first. Whether you agree with Grabhorn's reasons or not, this type of caution is vital. Her ultimate recommendations amount to psychic self-defense, and her steps are simple to perform, but out of respect for her wishes, I won't describe them here. I think the work would be much more well received if she had simply described her journey and methods, rather than starting from a story of creation and working forward... more so because our world has little tolerance for cosmologies that can't be scientifically proven, and Grabhorn is hardly neutral in her description. Sadly, as the other reviews show, most readers will lose the simple treasures of the author's learning because the rest of the story is entirely too daunting, too scary, and too far fetched for most to take.Read more ›

.... This is a very sad book. I was torn all the time I was reading it. I consider myself to have an open mind and not make quick judgements about people. But much of this book was very hard to take.
The reader is left with the image of a woman who has left her own judgement behind and has imersed herself in the world of channelers and "swingers" as the sole guidance for her life. Relying on these sources and their contradictory and vague "information" it's no wonder the author sinks deeper and deeper into her mess.
The end result of this book is to offer several phrases that the reader is supposed to say aloud one time to ward off the evil forces and intentions of the dark that she describes.
Lynn Grabhorn acknowledges many times throughout the book that she is aware how crazy most of this sounds (understatement). Her source for the information she sites as fact is simply the information she got from her other-dimension, other-world entities that she channeled. In order to finish the book at all, you MUST accept the premises and the scenario she sets forth as the truth for the beginning of our universe. Or simply ignore it as ramblings and yet another person's opinion, and then keep reading to see where this could all possibly go.
I'm sure Ms. Grabhorn is convinced that what she presents in this book is true. Since we all create our own realities, this is definitely the reality she created for herself for years. She believes it. But it is hard to escape the feeling that the author is delusional and could use some good counseling. And a break from some of the self-proclaimed healers and others she surrounds herself with.
I'm left wondering if Ms. Grabhorn even believed the information in her first book, Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting.
