I tried but I just couldn't finish this one. Every time I started listening I had high hopes but kept getting mad and shutting it off.
Don't get me wrong, there's some good stuff in there. I practice spirituality and psychic development. I'm a believer, no doubt about it. But I also study psychology, and that's where this book just makes me mad.
The author attempts to blend what I assume is Freudian psychoanalysis with concepts from Eastern mysticism but ends up butchering both.
Here's one example, where I finally gave up. She talks about the three levels of mind -- conscious, super-conscious, and subconscious. The super-conscious is basically like your spirit or higher self, all good and all-knowing. The conscious mind is pure awareness and will (neutral). But the subconscious is obsessed with survival, physicality, and reacts to situations from a basis of fear or anger. She even describes the different parts of the brain associated with these different levels.
Okay, if you're going to get into science, give me the science. Back up these claims with data and citations or just walk away. She does this kind of thing over and over. It not only detracts from the author's credibility, it just offends me.
Not all psychic authors are like this. Sonia Choquette is a good example. She stays in her realm of expertise and thus maintains her credibility. This book, on the other hand, just gives the field a bad name. Move on.
