From the Inside Flap

Have you ever looked back, awestruck at the infinite number of seemingly random choices and events that led you to where you are--and more importantly, who you are?

In this book, F. Holmes "Skip" Atwater--who, as an army lieutenant, took the initiative that resulted in the creation of the remote-viewing intelligence program now known as STARGATE--looks at the "coincidences" that led him from childhood out-of-body explorations to army counter-intelligence operations to sessions with consciousness pioneer Robert A. Monroe.

The result is a fascinating look at the way spiritual guidance works in our lives.

Included is a CD-ROM containing:

*declassified government documents pertaining to remote-viewing programs

*audio recordings (with transcripts) of actual remote-viewing sessions

*audio recordings of Atwater's altered-state explorations at The Monroe Institute

*the original audio recording (with transcript) of the remote viewing of Mars performed by Joseph McMoneagle (remote viewer 001)


The latest book club pick from Oprah

One of the more extraordinary of the stories about Edgar Cayce’s psychic ability is the time he was preparing to do a reading for a client in a distant location. As he, he noted that the client was not present at the location mentioned in the client’s letter requesting the reading. In a moment, Cayce announced, “Oh, here he comes now” and began the reading. The client had just returned home.
A few years back, on a television program called “Put it to the Test,” they showed a demonstration of Joseph McMoneagle, who had worked as a “psychic spy” for the CIA. In the session, McMoneagle was asked to psychically spy a location far away known only to a couple of individuals. It was the Los Angeles harbor. McMoneagle does a pretty good sketch of the major visual elements of the scene. As he does so, a large freighter passes through that point in the harbor. McMoneagle notes that something has come onto the scene that is blocking the view. The television reporter was flabbergasted at the immediacy and accuracy of McMoneagle’s demonstrable psychic abilities.
That particular television program was in response to the startling revelation that the CIA had been using psychic spies. In an unusual break with secrecy, the existence of “Stargate,” the code name for the government project to use the clairvoyant skill of remote viewing as an intelligence gathering method, was headline news. The fallout of this revelation was gradual “coming out” of persons who had participated as psychic spies. Another fallout was that remote viewing catapulted from an arcane laboratory methodology to the subject of many new consulting firms serving corporations and investment firms who wanted to gain the latest advantage.

It is time for Skip Atwater to take his place along with other giants in the field of Consciousness Studies. His new book, "Captain of My Ship, Master of My Soul" shows what can happen when we, as individuals, pay attention to things that happen in our lives. As he connects the dots, he makes history, showing that truly, there are no coincidences as we travel down the pathway we call our life.

F. Holmes (Skip) Atwater, Capt., U.S. Army (retired) originated the U.S. governments psychic spy program we know today as Star Gate that used Remote Viewing as a tool to gather military intelligence during the cold war.

A good working definition of Remote Viewing is: "The acquisition and description by mental means, of information blocked to ordinary perception by distance, shielding or time." (Attributed to Ingo Swann, the Father of Remote Viewing)

As he so clearly states and illustrates by his own life examples, we are spiritual beings here for a mortal experience. He tells his story conversationally, like rafting down the Rogue River on a beautiful, sunny, Southern Oregon kind of day.

You float along, following his every word as he describes the hyper-normal things he encounters, experiences and learns from. Yet there are really exciting parts that get your heart thumping and palms sweaty like shooting over bubbling, effervescent rapids!

He is not afraid to use the parenthesis to insert bits of his engaging personality.
He doesn't recoil from sharing who he is because he writes with a self-confidence that is contagious.

I just finished reading Captain of My Ship, Master of My Soul. It is a wonderful book. But the facts behind the story are mind bending. I had the great opportunity to attend a forum last fall in Fort Collins, Colorado, where Skip was one of the speakers. The forum, four days long with numerous presentations, was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and Skip, one of the speakers, was one of the very best. I bought his book at this event and obtained his autograph, imagine my surprise when I opened the book for the first time three days ago (6 months after the forum) and found a personal observation about me along with the autograph. This only enhances my perception that Skip is a warm and friendly individual besides having unusual abilities and way above normal intellect.
This charachter trait also comes through in this book which details his extraordinary experiences throughout his life, during his army career, including the Stargate program, and with his ongoing work with hemi-sync at the Monroe Institute.
I am deeply interested in all facets of the paranormal/metaphysical and this book is a great source for factual data which is not forthcoming from most other mainstream scientific sources. Skip is one of the few exceptions. I found the data regarding remote viewing exceptional but my interest is really geared to an interest in hemi-sync and what the potentials are for me to utilize this program in a search for spirtual growth, for a deeper understanding of the levels of consciousness, and potentially an awareness of the other realms of the universe. If you too are looking for these opportunites, you will start finding some answers in this excellent book.
