"If you are like me, this book will feel like an invitation to live in a much larger, more interesting world. It will serve as a key to open the handcuffs that have kept your spirit in check for too long. It will give you ideas, facts, and a language for living more from your pulsing heart than your frowning head. It will help you make sense of things you were taught earlier in your life, understood then only naively. It may inspire you to hope for a strong dream, an overwhelming coincidence, or a UFO encounter. It will certainly free you from the particular depression that comes from a habit of modern skepticism." -Thomas Moore from the Foreword
The title for this book comes from the ancient Aboriginal concept of "song lines" --pathways to another world reached through dreamtime and visionary insight, and encounters with the unknown realm of experience.
Veronica Goodchild addresses how dreams, synchronicities, UFO/ET encounters, Crop Circle mysteries, and NDEs all point to the new unfolding vision of reality. She draws on ancient mystery traditions to explore how this metamorphosis is already reflected cross-culturally in Hopi, Aztec, Mayan, Hindu, Tibetan, Maori, Zulu, Dogon, and Egyptian cultures.
Songlines of the Soul proposes a new paradigm of reality, a new worldview. The signatures of this new reality are arising both in our own experiences and all around us if only we can stretch wide our stubbornly held perceptions of what is "reality." As we stand at a crucial turning point in our human history, this book offers hope, a call to awaken and expand our perceptions of the fundamental principles that orchestrate reality.
In an age when the answers offered by governments and traditional religion are no longer sufficient, the quest for meaning must--as it always has in the past--arise first through visions, dreams, and journeys to other dimensions of consciousness.
How does mankind deal with miracles? This question has assumed a more-than-theoretical importance in the life of Michael Glickman, who has been witnessing the miraculous on a regular basis since he investigated his first crop circle in 1990. In the years since then, an intensive study of the crop-circle phenomenon in the region of its most important appearances—the English countryside—has given Glickman extraordinary personal insight into a subject usually known only through secondhand reports and speculation.
More than eight years in the writing, Crop Circles: The Bones of God is unique among books on this modern enigma in that it combines the author’s firsthand field encounters with some of the most famous crop-circle formations (such as Alton Barnes 1990 and Silbury Hill 1997, as well as more recent circles) with intricate and dazzling analyses of the structure and content of those formations. This beautifully illustrated mix of personal narrative with detailed study informs a larger discussion of the role of crop circles in the modern world and their unprecedented promise of new chapters in the history of consciousness.
