Book Review: Telekinesis (Psychic Awakening series Book 2)


Title: Telekinesis (Psychic Awakening series Book 2)
Author: Embrosewyn Tazkuvel


A short book to wrap your mind around

This is a short book on the field of telekinesis It gives an example or two and five exercises to hone your skills. The book also discusses bending spoons, giving the tip that one should try to be disinterested. I have tried to bend a key before, succeeding to bend a duplicate key that was in my pocket. If the book was longer I would’ve probably liked it. It’s okay for what it is.

Book Review: Phantoms & Monsters: Strange Encounters

Phantoms and Monsters

Title: Phantoms & Monsters: Strange Encounters
Author: Lon Strickler


If you seen things that are so strange that you won’t talk about them, then read the book

I like this book because it covered diverse encounters. My scientist friends will tell you it’s all due to miss identification’s, poor lighting ,a vivid imagination and psychological needs. I I don’t think that that’s always the case. I’ve known some good old boys, who if they like you and think they can trust you, sometimes tell you of encounters. Many of them have been raised in the woods and know normal wildlife. Trail cameras now produce some unusual pictures,There is another thing I’ve seen is that if you have a strange encounter and can accept it; more will happen after. Most of the time they are even stranger. Lon Strickler covers phantoms and apparitions, humanoids and other beings, unexplained phenomena and events, aliens and UFOs and monsters and cryptids .The book is based on correspondence sent to him. Read it if strange has become a relative term in your vocabulary.

Book Review: Time of the Quickening: Prophecies for the Coming Utopian Age

Time of the quickening

Title: Time of the Quickening: Prophecies for the Coming Utopian Age
Author: Susan B. Martinez Ph.D.


What makes a good book?

This was the most difficult book for me to review. How do you judge a book that you are not that fond of when it has one chapter that is excellent? This book is meant for die hard, touchy-feely type newagers. It tries to show a sort of historic flow to now, the time of the quickening. About a third way in the book is a chapter dealing with narcissism and a narcissistic country. The insight is exceptionally good, and drives the point home.” The loss of American lives is tragedy. Civilian deaths overseas are collateral damage.”I always ask people, how they would react if the Russians hunted terrorists in the United States and attacked them with drones? Another quote from the book is “our fervor is patriotic. Their fervor is fanatical.” I believe this chapter should have been developed into another book trying to tackle those narcissistic problems that the author describes.I know if the quality was like the rest of the chapter, I would love the book . All I can say is that if the book is ever a reduced price Amazon special, buy it for the one chapter

Book Review: Our Occulted History: Do the Global Elite Conceal Ancient Aliens?

Our Occult History

Title: Our Occulted History: Do the Global Elite Conceal Ancient Aliens?
Author: Jim Marrs
ISBN: 0062222929


History it’s definitely written by the winners, let’s hope truth doesn’t die with the losers.

Overall I think Our Occulted History is truly an interesting read, but I don’t know if Occulted is the best word to describe what Jim Marrs discusses. Part I discuss problems with the origin of the solar system, human development, strange artifacts and sacred sites. Part II is about ancient civilizations. Part III is about the Middle Ages. Part IV reflects on the Modern Era. The author covers topics ranging from the possibility of the planet Nibiru existing, to the suppression of history , to strange artifacts, to white gold with levitating properties, to the government supporting the use of fluoride. 50 to 75% of the subjects he mentions I found of interest.I would hope that he would write more books expanding on them. Definitely a good read.

Book Review: Impossible Realities: The Science Behind Energy Healing, Telepathy, Reincarnation, Precognition, and Other Black Swan Phenomena

Impossible Realities

Title: Impossible Realities: The Science Behind Energy Healing, Telepathy, Reincarnation, Precognition, and Other Black Swan Phenomena
Author: Maureen Caudill
ISBN: 1571746633

Science can change it stands anytime, yesterdays crackpot theory can be the gold standard in the future

Probably in your lifetime, science has told you one thing and years later they changed their mind. Coffee was bad for you, coffee was good for you. Cigarettes were good for you, cigarettes are bad for you. The list goes on and on. Some things will go back and forth over your lifetime. The author covers eight topics that science now says probably don’t exist. I think it’s funny, because science says that quantum entanglement exists, but telepathy, remote viewing and energy healing can’t. Impossible realities covers topics of psychokinesis, remote viewing, energy healing, telepathy, animal telepathy, precognition, survival after death and reincarnation. If you’ve ever had anything happen to you in any of these fields, you will probably like the book. If you are a strict, you better be able to duplicate this in a lab scientist, you’ll probably hate this book with gusto.

Book Review: Future Memory

Future Memory

Title: Future Memory
Author: P.M.H. Atwater
ISBN: 1571746889


It’s hard to remember

This book is borderline. It tries to give examples of precognition and explain possibly how it works. By its nature, this is a difficult subject to write about. The author writes about the condition when a person’s memories are triggered, where he remembers what has happened to him in the future. The problem is that these events happen but are difficult to explain how they could. My other problem is that the written text of the book is only about 65% of the book, the rest appendixes. This book may help you understand this better, but it didn’t help me.
