Spiritual Telepathty by Colleen Mauro is a book that genuinely resonates with me. It takes a truly comprehensive global and historical look at how to utilize ancient mental and spiritual practices and techniques to access the higher powers of the human mind, heart and soul. From ancient wisdom teachings to modern scientific discoveries and breakthroughs, this book takes what is often presented in complex and difficult to comprehend terms, concepts, definitions, and beliefs and breaks it all down into easy to follow and understand language and explanation.
When I see some of the names lending powerful words of support for this book, like former Apollo 14 Lunar Module Pilot Dr. Edgar Mitchell and Texas physician Dr. Larry Dossey, I know that I’m in good company.
The author offers us a thoughtfully prepared and detailed plan on how we can evolve from our lower mind, physical-based perceptions and awareness, to a higher and more evolved mindset that can perceive and interact with subtle realms of spirit that can provide us a much greater range of information and intuition. “A new level of awareness becomes possible as our focus shifts from the physical to the subtle planes,” Mauro writes. “We find our place within the greater whole and experience the oneness of all life. We move from the personal to the universal, from ‘me’ to ‘we’.”

Michael Newton, the author of Strange West Virginia Monsters, which I just reviewed in the last issue, has just come out with another book (his 12th on the subject of cryptozoology). This one, also published by Schiffer, is entitled Seeking Bigfoot. Unlike his previous “Monsters” book he doesn’t focus on just one single state, although he does focus on one particular “monster,” the legendary Bigfoot, although it goes by many other names like Yeti, Sasquatch, Oh-Man, Skookum, Momo, Skunk Ape, and more. The reports originate from all over the world.
This book is jam packed with detailed Bigfoot reports, illustrations and photographs from all over. It’s a very detailed compilation of information and reviews lots of perplexing cases, describes many of the people who investigate such reports, details methods that can be used and what kinds of equipment are needed to investigate such things yourself, and it also exposes known hoaxes too. The author gives a well-rounded and objective presentation of the facts on this mysterious and controversial subject
