Metaphysical and Spiritual Book Authors You Can Learn From
Aron Abrahamsen, a native of Norway, received his BS degree in Electrical Engineering in 1950 from California Polytechnic State University. During his early aerospace career he participated in studies that paved the way for the Apollo program. As an engineer he authored several technical papers. In those early years Aron Abrahamsen had a very meaningful spiritual experience that changed his life. During this time he discovered that while speaking before a group he would often receive a "message from God" for someone in the audience. This person would always come to Aron Abrahamsen after the meeting to tell him how helpful the message had been. This eventually progressed to his ability to obtain information from the Akashic Records. As a result thousands of life readings, as they were called, have been given to people all over the world. Aron Abrahamsen's work has been written about by Dr. Jeffrey Goodman in Psychic Archaeology; John White in Pole Shift; Dr. Laile Bartlett in Psi Trek; Dr. William Kautz and Melanie Branon in Channeling: The Intuitive Connection, and Tom Kay in When the Comet Runs, as well as in publications in Japan and Europe. Together with his wife, Doris, they have conducted seminars, conferences and workshops on spiritual growth. Aron has appeared on TV and radio across the country. For over three years they were on the speaking circuit for the Association for Research and Enlightenment on the topic "Be Your Own Psychic." The sources for this Holiday in Heaven adventure come from Aron Abrahamsen's own altered state of consciousness, which spans 25 years as a professional in his work, and from his dreams and personal experiences. Aron made his transition on February 16, 2014. He will be missed.

Justine Alessi resides in Northeast Ohio with her husband, Robert and is the mother of two grown children. This is Justine Alessi's first book, though she is presently developing several more books regarding the Tarot, positive affirmation techniques and other metaphysical topics.

Dolores Cannon is recognized as a pioneer in the field of past-life regression. She is a hypnotherapist who specializes in the recovery and cataloging of “Lost Knowledge”. Her roots in hypnosis go back to the 1960s, and she has been specializing in past-life therapy since the 1970s. She has developed her own technique and has founded the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Academy. Traveling all over the world teaching this unique healing method she has trained over 4000 students since 2002. This is her main focus now. However, she has been active in UFO and Crop Circle investigations for over 27 years since Lou Farish got her involved in the subject. She has been involved with the Ozark Mountain UFO Conference since its inception 27 years ago by Lou Farish and Ed Mazur. After Lou died she inherited the conference and has been putting it on the past two years.
Dolores has written 17 books about her research in hypnosis and UFO cases. These books are translated into over 20 languages. She founded her publishing company, Ozark Mountain Publishing, 22 years ago in 1992, and currently has over 50 authors that she publishes. In addition to the UFO conference she also puts on another conference, the Transformation Conference, which is a showcase for her authors.
She has appeared on numerous TV shows and documentaries on all the major networks, and also throughout the world. She has spoken on over 1000 radio shows, including Art Bell’s Dreamland, George Noory’s Coast to Coast, and Shirley MacLaine, plus speaking at innumerable conferences worldwide.

Julia Cannon was born in Hutchinson, Kansas to Johnny and Dolores Cannon. Johnny was a career Navy man, so they moved frequently and she had the advantage of an open-minded up-bringing. She was raised with the understanding that psychic phenomenon and metaphysics were common place and she was always exploring new avenues of growth.
Julia Cannon became a registered nurse and worked in Intensive Care and Home Health for the duration of her 20+ year career. She then decided to explore other aspects of the healing profession and has trained in Reconnective Healing and Dolores Cannon's QHHT.
Her energy healing has taken on its own dimension and has formed into something she calls "Lightcasting." Intuitive lights come from the hands to direct energy where it is needed to balance any deficiencies in the body. This balancing may be happening on the physical, mental and/or spiritual level. While she is working in someone's field, she gets intuitive messages/impressions of what is happening and what is needed to help the person bring about their healing.
When Julia Cannon does remote energy work, she is taken intuitively inside the body to see what the condition looks like and then she is given methods to correct the situations. This has been a spontaneous development that continues to amaze her in its applications.
Because of her nursing background, Julia Cannon brings a soothing mix of compassion, human body understanding and intuition to her work.

She is a third level Reiki Master who includes intuitive counseling in her Reiki practice. As an ultra-sensitive, she has always enjoyed a life among the energies of a different reality.

Donna Lynn was one of those little children who never stopped asking “why?” She studied psychology, world religions, and metaphysics while working in healthcare in the quest for understanding the mind/body/spirit connection.
A wise teacher once told Donna “Your gentleness is your strength.” After a lifetime of being told by others that she was too sensitive, Donna decided to embrace her sensitivity when otherworldly beings showed up to answer her question of “why?” She interacted with beings that others couldn’t see and visited places that others haven’t been, overcoming extreme fear and slowly developing relationships with these entities. She has been advised that now is the time to share these experiences with others and invite them to explore new realms of possibility.
Dennis Milner was born on 17th June 1924 in London, UK, and signed up to join the Royal Air Force during the latter half of world war two. After the war, grants were offered to service men and women whose education had been interrupted and Dennis took advantage of this and went to Queen Mary College to study Physics. Dennis chose to study Physics because it seemed to offer the means to understand the world.
After finishing his degree Dennis Milner went to work at Birmingham University as a metallurgist, eventually gaining the degree of Doctor of Science (D.Sc.). However, although physics could explain physical processes, science couldn't explain the important experiences he'd had in life, especially the comradeship he felt with others during the war.
To satisfy these unexplained "physical" things Dennis Milner and a colleague, Ted Smart, embarked on additional research alongside their metallurgy work; they decided to research the meaning of life. Dennis and Ted made significant progress and gave a set of lectures in the early 70's which generated interest.
In 1976, they published their first book "The Loom of Creation", and gained funding to take on 3 young researchers, Brian Meredith, Andrew McNeil and Harry Dean, to progress the work. The group produced fascinating results and insights, resulting in the publication of their second book, "Explorations of Consciousness".
After Brian, Harry and Andy left, Dennis Milner and Ted continued the work, gradually putting together the intriguing pieces of the jigsaw puzzle. When Ted passed away, Dennis continued on his own creating an anthology called "Kosmos", which included significant new content.
Dennis Milner made his transition on 23rd November 2011 after a long and fruitful life.

Guy Needler MBA, MSc, CEng, MIET, MCMA initially trained as a mechanical engineer and quickly progressed on to be a chartered electrical and electronics engineer. However, throughout this earthly training he was always aware of the greater reality being around him, catching glimpses of the worlds of spirit. This resulted in a period from his teenage to early twenties where he reveled in the spiritual texts of the day and meditated intensively. Being subsequently told by his guides to focus on his earthly contribution for a period he scaled back the intensity of spiritual work until his late thirties where he was re-awakened to his spiritual roles. The next six years saw him gaining his Reiki Master and a four year commitment to learn energy and vibrational therapy techniques from a direct student of the Barbara Brennan School of HealingTM, which also included a personal development undertaking (including psychotherapy) as a course prerequisite using the PathworkTM methodology described by Susan Thesenga with further methodologies by Donovan Thesenga, John and Eva Pierrakos. His training and experience in energy based therapies have resulted in him being a member of the Complementary Medical Association (MCMA).
Along with his healing abilities his spiritual associations include being able to channel information from spirit including constant contact with other entities within our multi-verse and his higher self and guides. It is the channeling that has resulted in "The History of God" and is producing further work.
As a method of grounding Guy practices and teaches Aikido. He is a 5th Dan National Coach with 28 years experience and is currently working on the use of spiritual energy within the physical side of the art.
Guy welcomes questions on the subject of spiritual physics and who and what God is.
Jim Nussbaumer composed his first novel – a football saga – at age eleven on the shiny turquoise typewriter he found under the Christmas tree. The book was entitled Reaching for the Goal. While his life has taken many turns since then, his focus on the Quest has never wavered.
Following tours of duty at Kent State University and in the U.S. Air Force, he spent the next twenty-five years in the financial services industry, excelling in a field he loathed – though not immune to its perks. By his thirties, running his own independent agency, he became an experienced public speaker and wrote a monthly column on financial security for Senior Forum, a regional Ohio newsletter. He then launched his own monthly client newsletter, Retirement Insights, which became hugely popular and evolved into a self-help publication with a nontraditional, nonreligious, spiritual slant.
Despite a long, successful career, in 2007 – faced with the pressures of an economy in freefall; the loss of one wife to cancer and two to divorce; the needs of his children and demands of an upscale lifestyle; and responsibilities to panicking clients – he illegally withdrew $100,000 of client’s funds to try to recoup the value of their investments and rescue his floundering business. The strategy failed and landed him a sentence of ten years.
His time in prison has been hell, and has also been unexpectedly fruitful, resulting in his return to his first love, writing, and the series that begins with The Master of Everything. The manuscripts were painstakingly handwritten in lined notebooks (he has no computer available in prison) and the material just keeps on coming.
I’ve got many, many blog posts , and many videos. I had some requests from FB and Twitter followers to describe some things, so I made this short video.

Riet Okken grew up in the Netherlands and completed her studies there at the University of Groningen where she earned BS (Bachelor of Science) degrees in sociology and psychology with a minor in cultural anthropology and a MS (Master of Science) degree in clinical psychology with a minor in psychology of religion. Next she studied multiple forms of psychotherapy, such as Gestalt Therapy, Kinesiology, Postural Integration Therapy, Holotropic Therapy, and Initiatic Therapy (the latter with German Zenmaster Karlfried von Durckheim and Jungian therapist Maria Hippius).
,br> Always a lifelong learner, Riet Okken was drawn to share her knowing with others: students of theology at a theological university in the Netherlands and individuals and groups at the Spark of Light Work Center she and her partner founded in France to help others with psychotherapeutical counseling and intense training so they could discover whatever prohibited them on spiritual, mental, emotional, and/or physical level/s from awakening to the fact that they are part of the One Light.
In addition, she trained therapists in Spark of Light Work. Riet Okken no longer works with clients and students but continues to blend heart and head in her many books that are available in Belgium and the Netherlands and now here in the United States with this publication of The Liberating Power of Emotions: De kracht van de bestemming (The Power of Destination), Ankh Hermes Publishing House, 1988; Met de stroom mee (Going with the Flow), Ankh Hermes Publishing House, 1998; De bevrijdende kracht van emoties (The Liberating Power of Emotions), Astarte Publishing House, 2002, and now in English, Ozark Mountain Publishing, 2012; Lichtpuntwerk de liefdevolle ontvangst van onze emoties (Spark of Light Work: The Loving Reception of Our Emotions), Astarte Publishing House, 2004; and coming soon: Jezus ontsluierd (Jesus Unveiled).

Nikki Pattillo graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas and began her career as a clinical and molecular biologist. She is the author of Children of the Stars: Advice for Parents and Star Children and also writes numerous newspaper articles to help raise awareness in consciousness on both environmental and spiritual issues.
As a child, Nikki Pattillo was psychic conversing regularly with her angels and guides. This natural gift was not understood by her family or friends and consequently she shut down her abilities out of fear. It was these same angels and guides that came to her later in life and said that it was time for her to allow her gifts to grow stronger and open a path for others, especially children, to follow in peace and harmony and without fear of their gifts.
Children of the Stars: Advice for Parents and Star Children was written as a guide to help parents understand their Star children and to help each parent spiritually understand what is happening with these gifted children who are here to help us. It was written to help children understand and not be fearful of seeing and hearing things that others cannot see or hear.
Nikki Pattillo says, "The most wonderful aspect of Star children is their willingness to take on the world and learn to make their own way through it. Star children will get to the point where they are able to mold society into something that reflects their energies and values. The truth that they hold and defend so well will reflect their integrity and spirituality and change the world as we know it."
Together with her husband Charlie and daughter Maddy, Nikki Pattillo and her family live on a small island in the Gulf of Mexico where they can connect with dolphin energies and the elementals of nature. Nikki works with many charities and is president of the recycling committee of her local community. She also writes a column in the newspaper on various environmental and spiritual issues.
Pealer, Rev. Grant H. D.D.
Having pre-birth memories, Dr. Grant Pealer has written many discourses about the mysteries of the esoteric, including giving an extensive study of life after death. He founded the Church of Spiritual Awareness in 1990 and also established “Pealer Group", a world-wide research group that studied the secrets of life and the universe.
Grant Pealer wrote Untold Jesus: The Two-Thousand-Year-Old Secret in 2002. Published in Pittsburgh by Dorrance, the work was based on ancient and secret documents written by those who knew Jesus personally. It was one of the first works to ever suggest Jesus survived the cross, married, and had a family. This book went into detail about that family, that secret life and many shocking revelations that have never been revealed anywhere else.
Grant Pealer also co-authored "Growing Up in the Garden of the Mad", a screenplay about children growing up in a supernatural environment. It is presently being prepared for a television movie.
Dr. Grant Pealer's interest in journalism began in the early 1960s when he worked on a small weekly newspaper. That was when he was first allowed to write a column about Life After Death.
Victoria Pendragon was born and raised in the vicinity of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is the oldest of eleven. Her life has been defined, as are most of ours perhaps, by conditions that would seem to have been beyond her control. Eighteen years of various sorts of abuse and two diseases that should have killed her rank among the most outstanding of those.
Victoria Pendragon's study of metaphysics began in early childhood as an attempt to validate the lessons she'd been learning from the earth and the trees whenever she left her body. She has been working as a professional in the field of spirituality since 1995, has read tarot since 1964 and created in 2007, Sacred Earth Seven Element Tarot, a tarot deck designed to bring the world community together.
Victoria Pendragon began training in art when still a child, eventually acquiring a BFA from The Philadelphia College of Art. Her work hangs in numerous corporate and personal collections, among them The Children's Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Moss Rehab and Bryn Mawr Hospital Rehab.
Victoria Pendragon has two children by her first marriage, a son and a daughter, both of whom amaze her. She is currently married to her third husband, a man whose kind soul has created for her an atmosphere of clarity and creativity in which she dances, writes, creates art and helps when asked.
Michael Perlin is the director, writer and producer of the Metaphysical film, "3 Magic Words" which reveals the common theme taught to us by all great spiritual masters. Michael believes that the problems we face in the world today are still going on because we live mostly on a "religious" planet and not a "spiritual" one. He believes there is an answer - a solution that can only come from a new spirituality that embraces a unifying reality of all the religions and sets aside the old ego-driven idea that there is only one true way.
Joanna Prentis was born in Bangalore in southern India. When she was two her family returned to Scotland where she spent her childhood and teenage years. After leaving school she traveled extensively, married and lived in Hong Kong for two years and then ten years in the Australian bush in Western Australia, where her three daughters were born. It was there that her interest began in alternative medicine and education, organic farming, metaphysics and meditation. With a local nurse, she ran a homeopathic and Radionic practice.
On returning to the UK Joanna Prentis trained as a Montessori teacher and educated her two youngest daughters at home for a few years. Her daughter Tatanya now lives in America, and Katinka and Larissa in southwest England. She now has two beautiful granddaughters.

With her daughter Tatanya, Joanna Prentis set up the Starlight Centre in 1988, a center for healing and the expansion of consciousness. She has introduced us to many innovative techniques and interesting people, and she continues to do this from her home in San Francisco.
Working with Stuart and her other regression subjects for this book was the most amazing experience Joanna Prentis has ever had with any of her clients. The information that poured forth was incredible and the energies in the room were so blissful and powerful. The happiness of being with Jesus was out of this world and breathtaking, but the sadness and confusion after the crucifixion were a complete contrast. She hopes this book will convey some of this. It is an amazing story and one she feels whose time has come.

Rivinus, David L.
David Rivinus began a decades-long study of dreams while working with children at a mental health clinic in the late 1960s. During that time, he attended seminars offered by Gestalt therapists who were also dream experts. Over time, this led to him developing his own simple, effective method of dream interpretation. While doing his research, he was struck by how “dreamlike” the unusual events of waking life can be as well. His understanding that one can analyze and interpret these waking life events, reaching the same kinds of profound, helpful insights that one gains from nighttime dreams, revolutionized his approach to dreams and their purpose in our lives. Since then, he has taught dream classes on three continents and in four languages, highlighting both nighttime and “waking” dreams. During the summer of 2012, he was a presenter at the annual conference of the International Association for the Study of Dreams. He participates in online dream-related blogs, teaches dream classes via Skype and conference calls, and regularly facilitates a local dream seminar in his home town of Portland, Oregon. He wrote the book Always Dreaming—Gaining Insights from the Metaphors of our Sleeping and Waking Lives to document his findings.
Schorn, Don M.
M. Don Schorn started his professional career in 1968 with a thermoplastics molding company. As a graduate mechanical engineer, he combined his interests in plastics and cars working for several manufacturers supplying component parts to the automotive industry. Mr. Schorn continued his postgraduate education with a curriculum in Plastics Technology and individual course study in various technical and managerial programs. His extensive manufacturing and design experience led to the development of a number of new processing techniques and numerous patentable innovations.
Utilizing his extensive plastics and manufacturing background, Mr. M. Don Schorn later joined a Detroit manufacturers' representative firm as a product development specialist. Working with various OEM automotive divisions, he assisted in finalizing product specifications and part designs, ISO quality criterion and certifications, along with direct marketing and sales efforts. After a successful professional career spanning more than 27 years, he retired early at the beginning of 1995 to pursue a second career in writing.
Since then, M. Don Schorn has studied cosmology, paleoanthropology, geology, and archaeology, along with extensive analysis of ancient records and sacred texts. Those studies provided both comprehension and factual data necessary to complete five manuscripts as of this date. Four of those books are non-fiction works, including the trilogy collectively known as the Journals of the Ancient Ones, which introduces the Elder Gods theory that reveals Earth's primordial development and the emergence of humankind. The author's other non-fiction work, Reincarnation-Stepping Stones of Life, is an enlightening examination of the reincarnation concept and its implementation as a way-of-life. Mr. Schorn's first fictional work is his Emerging Dawn novel, which details a near-future global search for ancient artifacts that are connected with the Mayan End-Time prophecy anticipated to occur on December 21, 2012.

Garnet Schulhauser is a retired lawyer who lives near Victoria, on Vancouver Island, with his wife, Cathy, and little dog, Abby. He grew up on a small farm in Saskatchewan and moved to Calgary, Canada, after law school where he practiced corporate law for over thirty years with two blue-chip law firms. After retiring from his law firm in 2008, he began his new career as an author and his first book, Dancing on a Stamp, was published in 2012. Since the release of his first book, Garnet has been active with book signing tours and speaking engagements and has been a frequent guest on radio talk shows. When he is not writing or connecting with his followers, Garnet enjoys golfing, nature walks in the forest with Abby, and family gatherings with his sons, Blake and Colin, and their partners, Lauren and Bergis, and granddaughter Kymera.
In Dancing on a Stamp, Garnet recounts how his life changed dramatically one day in 2007 (while still practicing law) when he was confronted on the street by a homeless man named Albert (who was actually a wise spirit in disguise - an emissary from the spirit world). This seemingly chance encounter launched a provocative dialogue with Albert who disclosed startling new truths about all of life's big questions, including our true nature as eternal souls, the cycle of reincarnation on Earth, and how we create our own reality through free-will choices. He wrote Dancing on a Stamp at Albert's request so that these revelations would be available to everyone.
Garnet's second book, Dancing Forever with Spirit, describes his most recent adventures with Albert who appeared in his bedroom room one night to guide him on a series of out-of-body adventures to explore the wonders of the Universe, including the Akashic Records, distant planets with fascinating life forms, and a human civilization that made the shift to the New Earth. Albert's goal was to encourage humans to stop their abuse of Mother Earth and all of her inhabitants by casting aside their negative emotions and in favor of love and compassion.

Blair Styra was born in Canada in 1960 and lived the first eleven years of his life there. He and his family immigrated to New Zealand in 1971 an event that was to pave the way for his spiritual journey. As a young child in Canada he always had the feeling that there was something more about life even though he could not define it with words. He felt very attuned to a presence of energy that as an adult he understood to be spirit. In his late teens he met up with a woman who eventually became his wife. The journey that they created together acted as a catalyst for his spiritual growth, and eventually led to him discovering his ability as a channel for spirit. From that point on he began to create new ways of being on all levels. This led to his connection with Tabaash and for the last 24 years Blair has been the channel for Tabaash. The work they have done together has since taken them throughout New Zealand and internationally. In New Zealand they presented for two years a radio program called “Talking with Tabaash” as well as presenting for 12 years monthly meditation/teaching evenings.

Natalie Sudman worked as an archeologist in the Great Basin states for sixteen years before accepting a position managing construction contracts in Iraq. After being injured by a roadside bomb, Natalie retired from government service. She is now enjoying art, writing, and continuing explorations into the non-physical.
Natalie Sudman reads and heals psychically, communicates with those who have passed over, and channels non-physical beings. She offers information regarding personal questions as well as addressing broader subjects such as the nature of space, time or reality.
Natalie Sudman has a particular interest in the intersections of science and the non-physical. She has been a subject of studies performed by the University of Virginia's Division of Perceptual Studies, and welcomes invitations to act as a lab rat for any scientific investigation. Describing herself as an open-minded skeptic, Natalie finds that the rigorous methodology of science appeals to her critical mind, while her artistic nature enjoys the expansive freedom of leaving behind the critical mind in frequent forays into the non-physical. She maintains that an irreverent sense of humor and a willingness to look foolish are the cornerstones of constructive exploration.
Raised in Minnesota, Natalie Sudman has lived most of her adult life in eastern Oregon, Montana and South Dakota. She recently moved to southern Arizona. Her artwork is available through Davis & Cline Galleries in Ashland Oregon.

Above all else, Janie Wells is a survivor. No parent should have to bury their child, but Janie was catapulted instantly into the reality of violent crime in 2001 with the capital murder of her 30-year-old daughter. Grief stricken, broken and in shock, Janie not only picked up the pieces of her life, but discovered a passage to spiritual transformation by living each moment with honesty, raw emotions and an open heart. Janie's tenacity of purpose in the pursuit of justice and peace of mind launched her into a profound spiritual journey. She found that she was not alone in her struggle as her life began to overflow with angelic encounters and divine interventions.
Janie Wells' genuineness evolved into the ability to live totally in the present moment with a loving heart and courage of steel, making her days filled with divine moments of truth, not only for herself but many who cross her path. She makes room in her heart and shares her special gift without hesitation. She speaks with profound honesty and love, helping a person move from a fearful, powerless existence that is self-defeating and pulls the plug on connecting with the spiritual world . . . to that of a truly authentic life that ensures spiritual growth. Janie knows that her daughter Joann is her source of information for others when she is able to detach from everything and be totally in the moment with them. Janie and Joann's message goes beyond the story of pain to one of redeeming light and a great love for the fellow human. They inspire you to develop your own potential, to be self-caring, and to know yourself, to let go and be real.

Wheatley, Maria & Dennis
Author and professional dowser Maria Wheatley has been studying dowsing, astrology and past lives for over 20 years. Maria is considered a leading authority on earth energies and has spent the past ten years researching how ley lines and earth energies were integrated into ancient sites, and more importantly, how they were harnessed by our ancient ancestor to raise consciousness.
Maria Wheatley has been teaching subjects such as Earth Divination, the symbolic language of Mother Earth, and dowsing since 1992 and is the founder of The Avebury School of Esoteric Studies. Maria has been raising awareness of how the Earth's energetic eco-system can enhance or hinder our lives. She teaches corporate companies in the UK and a US nursing college how to identify the Earth's healing lines and geodetic patterns and to negate inharmonious energies. Maria's late father, Dennis Wheatley, was considered one of Britain's most advanced dowsers who taught several well-known authors, such as Geoff Stray, to dowse the hidden energies that flow silently through the Earth. The way forward is to work with the Earth not against her.
Dennis Wheatley was the President of the Swindon-based Wyvern Dowsing Society and a professional dowsing tutor employed by the Wiltshire County Education Authority in their continuing adult education program. He regularly lectured and wrote on dowsing-related subjects and at the request of national television networks made three films on dowsing for earth energy patterns. Additionally, he has made many television appearances. As an electronics engineer, he often brought state-of-the-art scientific instruments to bear on his dowsing research. Having inherited the research surveys and notes of Guy Underwood, which he had researched over ten years, the author is recognized as the world\'s leading authority on the geodetic system of earth energies. Dennis died peacefully at home on Beltane in 2006. This book has been republished in his loving memory and his daughter, Maria, continues her father\'s research into earth energies.

Sherry Wilde was living an idyllic life until 1987 when her community experienced a UFO flap that was considered one of the most active in the world. No one could have ever guessed the unbelievable turn of events that would occur over the next 18 to 24 months as Sherry was forced to accept her involvement in a phenomenon that was totally unknown to her. It was astonishing to this pragmatic and level-headed woman of 37 when faced with the undisputable evidence that she was experiencing contact with extra-terrestrial beings. It almost pushed her over the edge to learn her contact had been ongoing for her entire life . Sherry spent the next several years of her life trying to exonerate the experience from her mind and ignoring the occasional visits. But when heavy contact started again in late 2009, after several years of peace, she could no longer ignore it. Inexplicably, she found herself writing a book about the experiences as her memory opened up to the past events and the teachings these beings had imparted to her. Overcoming her fear and learning the truth of her involvement became her life goal. She now accepts the truth of these encounters and has cooperative contact on a regular basis with the beings she calls "her guys".

Stuart Wilson was born in Exmouth in the West of England. He came from a conventional background and went to a Scottish public school (Fettes in Edin-burgh). However his mother was fascinated by theosophy and the writings of Alice Bailey, and this led to Stuart's lifelong interest in esoteric teachings and the Eastern and Western wisdom traditions.
After service in the RAF on Christmas Island in the Pacific, Stuart Wilson entered advertising as an agency copywriter, rising over some years to become an advertising manager for an industrial company. He then retrained as a counselor and set up a small publishing business, which he later sold to concentrate on writing. He wrote two best-selling name dictionaries, including Simply the Best Baby Name Book, and moved in 1990 to help his friend Joanna Prentis with the development of the Starlight Centre in mid-Devon.
Stuart Wilson writes of this period: ..."It was inspiring and fascinating but also exhausting! A stream of visitors came in to the Centre, mainly from the United States and Australia, but some also from Europe. We had an amazing and mind-expanding time sitting at the feet of internationally respected spiritual teachers and workshop leaders. What I remember most about this time was the big gatherings when our friends came in to share a meal and talk about our experiences and all the changes that were happening in our lives. It was a wonderful time, full of joy and laughter, and the special events, like Anna Mitchell Hedges sharing her crystal skull, and the two fire-walks led by Esassani, were simply magical!"
