Editorial Reviews


"The writing is professional, the first-person approach direct, unselfconscious, and uncluttered. I was interested in reading more--that doesn't happen often."
John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt

"A must-read book, When We Were Gods explores both the history of our souls and our future evolution, providing an insightful view of today's children, many of them Indigos, who will awaken to their destiny and become stepping-stones to the Fifth Root Race."
Mary Ann Carr, M.Ed., Specialist in Gifted Education, author of One Hour Mysteries

"When We Were Gods is a thought-provoking first-person account of Carole Chapman's hypnotic exploration of apparent and ancient past life memories of a most incredible nature--'memories' that cited an extraterrestrial origin, as well as a past life, a strange root race, and the superior and mysterious technology of Atlantis, with a thing called 'snake travel' (would quantum physics call it a 'wormhole'?) thrown in the mix. . . . A genuinely intriguing and thought-provoking book." 
Brent Raynes, editor of Alternate Perceptions, author of Visitors from Hidden Realms

"An incredibly interesting book--beautifully written. It reminds me of Shirley MacLaine's The Camino--about the time before we had bodies, when the sexes weren't yet separated."
Susan Lendvay, Associate Editor, Venture Inward 

"We should not underestimate the discrete, immeasurable influences of nature. In When We Were Gods, Carole Chapman unfolds a personal quest and vision that is not only entertaining but inspirational."
Christopher Dunn, author of The Giza Power Plant

Format: Paperback
Imagine that you've just lost a baby . . . but your body still thinks you are pregnant. The weight just piles onto your tiny frame. Doctors are no help. In frustration, you try a hypno-therapist who is good at helping reverse weight gains.

Sounds pretty stressful, huh?

But that's just the beginning. During your hypnosis, you begin having memories of past lives, different beings and an unexpectedly positive future. You tell your husband, and he begins to wonder if you're all there. Fortunately, your daughters listen.

That's the backdrop for Carole Chapman's fascinating personal story of how she went to lose weight and ended up being directed by spiritual beings to write this book.

Ms. Chapman is a good storyteller. In the course of the book, she takes turns poking fun at her own experiences, describing her husband's comments about her fiction book that she thinks is non-fiction, sharing coincidences that she finds with material from other sources, and speculating about what it all means.

I remember reading about those who recalled former lives during hypnosis when I was a youngster in the 1950s. Bridey Murphy is the person I remember best. Whatever was happening with the woman who recalled Bridey Murphy, it was clear that she was experiencing something pretty gripping during hypnosis.

Ms. Chapman's book makes it equally convincing that she is sincere in describing her experiences. It's that sincerity that draws you into the narrative.

Ms. Chapman's past and future worlds are pretty impressive in their span. She meets Jesus, Michael and Gabriel. She remembers herself in three different life forms and sees a fifth that is coming. Her relationship with her husband actually spans living in different life forms.

Carole Chapman has an engaging presence that draws us into her story in this book. I don't know that it matters whether or not you believe in reincarnation, in the actual existence of gods we all throught were myths, or even that many of us may once have been what the ancient humans called gods. What I find best about her book is the opportunity to stretch oneself. Find out whether it makes a difference for you if you decided to give thanks before each meal in the way she felt instructed to do by the god Pan. Find out what sort of experience you have greeting the sun each day, whether at sunrise, as Carole does, or at other times during the day. Find out what you experience after a few weeks of walking outside daily, without glasses, during certain hours. Yes, Carole describes doing all of these activities, and some of the beginning results of doing them. But she doesn't tell it all in the book, even in the fun articles included in the back, which expand her story. It isn't until you try them for yourself, then contact her about your experience, that you begin to find out things about yourself that you didn't realize before. If you want to stretch yourself even further, I recommend attending one of her workshops. But start with this book, and see where you find yourself heading. You might be surprised.

Format: Paperback
Edgar Cayce, America's greatest psychic once stated that "all souls were created in the beginning, and are finding their way back to whence they came." From hundreds of trance channelings, Cayce gave us a glimpse of history that is not written in the history books. He had the ability to tap into the Universal Mind, the Akashic Records and download supernatural information that most people do not have access to. In an anxious search to get help with an abnormal weight problem, author Carole Chapman accidentally tapped into a similar metaphysical field of information while under hypnosis.

Many people have found success in losing weight using hypnotherapy. Carole Chapman did lose the weight but only after finding out under hypnosis the history of her soul and her creation story which in essence was a foundation for the history of the soul on earth. As the story unfolded, Carole was terrified at first because she found out under hypnosis that her origins were not of the earth and she didn't even believe in aliens or Light Beings from Arcturus. She was a serious minded photo-journalist for NASA not a trekky. As her hypnosis sessions continued she could not only see in her mind's eye the various incarnations she experienced, but she could feel them and would often times go through an emotional roller coaster reliving those lives.

In Carole's case, her soul also experienced a lifetime in Atlantis as a scientist in charge of the main crystal at the top of a tower that maintained the balance of energy and generated electromagnetic power for the whole continent. She was shown the specific cause of the destruction of Atlantis. Coming further in time, Carole learned that she lived in Jerusalem and was friends with Jesus and his mother Mary.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Jean C. Keating on May 9, 2007
Format: Paperback
When We Were Gods is a candid, true story of one woman's search for a solution to dieting that led to dream therapy which in turn led to her own sense of spiritual awareness. Dream therapy as a clue to weight-gain problems was news to me to begin with. But for author Carol Chapman it was just the beginning of a long journey into the unknown. In her early dreams she meets a man,one whose face is not familiar, but who seems to be linked strongly to her. When she later meets him in real life, the attraction holds. They eventually marry and have remained a team for more than 17 years. But the dreams take her much further than the solution to her weight control. THey bring memories of the world of Atlantis and suggest explanations of the connection between Atlantis and the Mayan civilizations. Whatever each of our mind sets may be about these mysteries, one has to be intrigued by the candor and spiritual nature of the writer's documentation of this fascinating look at dreams and impressed by a writer who had the courage and faith to marry and link her life with 'the man of her dreams.'
