Review

“Exploring the biology of consciousness, Dennis reveals the emerging mechanisms for neurogenetic evolution within the brains of gifted individuals, psychics and visionaries, and the coming increases in solar and magnetic energies that will activate them within all of us. Explaining how we can free up mental and emotional energy to break through the barriers inhibiting conscious evolution, he shows that by taking back our minds and changing the way we think, we can restore our connection with nature and the Divine and lead humanity into a new age of harmony and awareness. This is a revolutionary call to overthrow society’s mental controls and expand consciousness for the greater good of humanity.” (Aznet News, August 2012)

“...a brief, practical guide to winning back your mind – simple, intuitive practices to quell fear and alienation, while promoting spontaneous, benign mutation.” (Mac Graham, Whole Life Times, December 2012)

“Explaining how we can free up mental and emotional energy to break through the barriers inhibiting conscious evolution, he shows that by taking back our minds and changing the way we think, we can restore our connection with Nature and the Divine and lead humanity into a new age of harmony and awareness.” (Earth Star Magazine, June 2012)

The Struggle for Your Mind is a must for metaphysical and new age spirituality collections, very much recommended thinking.” (Midwest Book Review, July 2012)

“Dr. Dennis reflects on social engineering techniques and modern technoculture, and encourages us to rise above fear and helplessness to make positive changes in ourselves and the world around us.” (Nexus Magazine, August 2012)

From the Back Cover

SPIRITUALITY / NEW THOUGHT

Within society there exists a silent war. The battlefield is our everyday lives: our education, our work, our leisure, our emotional and spiritual well-being, and our thinking and perceptions. Our very sense of “reality” is deliberately engineered to work against conscious evolution and preserve social norms. In short, we are all part of a war of consciousness. And the opportunity is at hand for us to win.

Assessing the ways modern societies limit consciousness and keep humanity obedient and distracted from their inner lives, Kingsley Dennis presents an eye-opening investigation of the way our minds have been programmed to preserve incumbent power structures and their rules. He exposes the tactics employed for thousands of years by the elite to control our minds--misinformation and propaganda, debt systems, consumerism, religious doctrine, scientific authority, economic “uncertainties,” fear of terrorist attacks and armageddon, distraction through entertainment and technology--as well as the false belief that we are separate from Nature and the Divine. Despite these obstacles, humanity is awakening to culture’s imposed limits on perception through an accelerating rise in collective empathy and awareness.

Exploring the biology of consciousness, Dennis reveals the emerging mechanisms for neurogenetic evolution within the brains of gifted individuals, psychics, and visionaries and the coming increases in solar and magnetic energies that will activate them within all of us. Explaining how we can free up mental and emotional energy to break through the barriers inhibiting conscious evolution, he shows that by taking back our minds and changing the way we think, we can restore our connection with Nature and the Divine and lead humanity into a new age of harmony and awareness.

KINGSLEY L. DENNIS, Ph.D., is a sociologist, writer, and cofounder of WorldShift International. The author of New Consciousness for a New World, he spends his time between Andalusia, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

Covers the processes of how we are lead by the nose and how to take charge of your own thoughts and how to realize the deceptions in front of you.

I wanted to like this book but I found it difficult to understand, and I say that reluctantly. I read a lot of books on high level topics and have two science degrees.

The author just seemed to be a bit all over the place and failed to make his core points to me in a logical, consistent, convincing way.

Having said that, I think the premise of the book is entirely valid - that is, that our way of thinking is wholly manipulated by the civilization in which we are immersed. I just wish the author had been better at codifying this.

I was hoping for a serious, sober consideration of the ways politicians and the popular media distort our perceptions of reality, but this isn't it. Dennis offers up series of wild conjectures linked vaguely to a variety of poorly researched sources. I couldn't make it past the first chapter. It was a complete waste of my time and money.

This is a most intriguing book regarding the situation of the government behind the government so to speak. This definitely requires more than one reading to get the material of this well researched book. I have been aware of many attempts at subconscious control of societies by others over the years but this is the first time I have heard of say the Modernity Project. I am not so sure that there is an accelerating rise in collective empathy in the mass consciousness although there are certainly many individuals who are wakening up as to what has been going on. The solution for which I bought the book is on changing limited perceptions as to our true nature and the false belief that we are separate from Nature or from Divinity. The author does not cover this aspect of the book as well as he does the problem although the problem per se is certainly an eye opener. It is certainly a time when we will all be required to live on the edge because where we have been has not taken us where we really want or need to go.
