THE STORY READS LIKE HARRY POTTER MEETS RUDOLF STEINER MEETS.....AIR SEX WITH AN APE MAN...IT JUST GETS BETTER AND BETTER. YET THERE WERE MAYBE 3 GENUINE INCIDENTS THAT I CAN CROSS REFERENCE THAT GAVE SOME CREDABILITY TO THE BOOK, AND THEN THE SPIDER AND THE FROG AND IT IS OFF TO THE RACES AGAIN. IRONICALLY IT WAS CAYCE WHO MENTIONED THAT ONES PAST LIVES ONLY SERVED A PURPOSE IF THEY HELPED US LIVE A BETTER LIFE NOW
THAT THE AUTHOR HAS A GENUINE THEATRICAL FLAIR I DO NOT QUESTION BUT THAT ANYONE WOULD JUST TAKE HER AT HER WORK BECAUSE SHE KNOWS THIS ONE OR THAT IS FOOLISH. IN FACT MUCH OF WHAT IS BEING PUBLISHED AS NEW AGE IS AN EXAMPLE OF A WARNING BY OUR LADY OF FATIMA THAT MANY FALSE PROPHETS WOULD ARISE DURING THIS PERIOD IN HUMAN HISTORY.
I REALIZE THIS SEEMS HARSH BUT THERE IS NOT VERY MUCH INTERNAL LOGIC TO THIS BOOK AND THERE ARE TOO MANY HILLS AND VALLEYS EMOTIONALLY. THE ONE MOST IMPORTANT SKILL TO DEVELOP IN THE SPIRITUAL LIFE IS BRUTAL HONESTY AS IT IS SO EASY FOR ONES EGO TO JUST CATCH ON SOMETHING AND MISLEAD NOT ONLY ONESELF BUT SO MANY PEOPLE LOOKING FOR HOPE AND A PROMISE OF TOMORROWS TO COME. IT IS AS IF WE REFUSE TO TURN TO GOD AND KEEP FINDING EVERY POTHOLE IN THE ROAD TO BREAK OUR ANKLES IN RATHER THAN PERSERVERE AND LIFE IN THE LIGHT OF FAITH.
I DID NOT USE WORDS SUCH AS LIKE OR DISLIKE IN THIS REVIEW BECAUSE WHEN YOU MAKE THE VAULTED CLAIM THAT YOU WERE
CALLED TO DO THIS MY JOB AS A READER IS MAKE SURE THAT WHAT YOU ARE TELLING ME HAS THE EARMARKS OF SOMETHING MORE THAN IMAGINATION, MESSIANIC TENDENCIES, AND A NEED TO BE IN WITH THE IN CROWD.
THIS BOOK PASSES NONE OF THE TESTS I HAVE TO HELP ME STEER THROUGH THE MORASS OF INSINCERE TWADDLE CLAIMING SOME DEEP OTHER WORLDLY KNOWLEDGE.
She went to a hypnotist as a last resort to help with the weight problem. During this process it appears that her subconscious mind started to manufacture fictional root causes for her various issues.
These fictional, past life visions always portray her as a very important character.
On Atlantis she was a scientist who developed the legendary crystal based technology. Then as a frog being she controlled this crystal power together with a gigantic spider. As Atlantis sank into the murky depths she flew to Egypt by jumping into the mouth of a snake which spit her out. In Egypt she was a goddess who worked with the god Amon to construct the Great Pyramid.
Too bad on Atlantis while she was ordering a drink at the bar a Roman centurion seduced her and eventually betrayed her by telling Belial about their discussions about the crystal.
She provides an alternative version of the Last Supper which is combined with another bible story of the lady who annointed Christ's feet with perfume and dried them with her hair. In fact she says she herself is that lady who some people associate with Mary Magdalene although I don't think the bible specifically says it was Mary Magdalene.
She also remembers attending meetings in a cave with Christ, Mary, and the archangels Michael and Gabriel who wore robes and hoods that cover their faces. She says those angels don't understand us because they have never been human.
All this leads up to what she perceives as her calling and very important mission for the world which is to inform the 'Golden Ones' about things that have already been documented in many books. In fact it is from these books that her own subconscious mind got the material to create these hypnotic visions.
The husband is sort of like a grounding figure in her life. At one point she is tormented about whether or not to write this book so he says:
"Then don't write it. Write something else. Get some kind of job."
He also tells people (correctly):
"She's writing a book. It's fiction, but she thinks it's non fiction."
Information like this can be entertaining I guess. But it's not a serious book for anyone trying to unravel the great mystery of Atlantis.
I enjoyed the book at times but perhaps not for the reasons intended. To me it was informative to see how someone interpreted information that was obtained under hypnosis.
There's reasons why information obtained using hypnosis is not admissable as evidence in a court of law.
That's not to say people cannot remember real events from Atlantis and the ancient past using hypnosis and meditation. I believe they can.
Meditation Music of Ancient Egypt
Edgar Cayce's Atlantis
The Giza Power Plant : Technologies of Ancient Egypt
The Mystery of the Crystal Skulls: Unlocking the Secrets of the Past, Present, and Future
Edgar Cayce's Egypt: Psychic Revelations on the Most Fascinating Civilization Ever Known
Same Soul, Many Bodies: Discover the Healing Power of Future Lives through Progression Therapy
Edgar Cayce's Atlantis and Lemuria: The Lost Civilizations in the Light of Modern Discoveries
The Atlantis Dialogue: Plato's Original Story of the Lost City, Continent, Empire, Civilization
Initiation in the Great Pyramid (Astara's Library of Mystical Classics)
For example if a giant black spider had held the great Atlantean crystal, why didn't Cayce say so? If there was no writing or language at the time the Great Pyramid was built, why did Cayce talk about records that would be discovered? The soul that became Jesus materialized baby bodies in the pit of the pyramid to form the Adamic race??? There's just too much in this book that is open to question. And that's putting it kindly.
A book that rings much more true about the state of affairs in Atlantis and Lumuria is Shirley MacLanine's THE CAMINO. Shirley's spontaneous throw back experiences with her teacher to lifetimes in these ancient cultures ring true and are enthralling to read.
Since Shirley uses modern language, she's much easier to understand than the often obscure Cayce readings, and her experiences agree with the Cayce commentaries. Skip WHEN WE WERE GODS and read MacClaine as well as some of the original Cayce readings.
Shirley's teacher tells her that the Adamic race existed as far back as Lemuria, and Cayce talks about how in Egypt much work was done in perfecting human bodies in the Temple of Sacrifice. He doesn't say anything about little pink babies being formed in the Pit (the first Adam) which Carole Chapman talks about. I think the ARE should be more cautious about the books it recommends.
