Awakening the Holographic Human: Nature's Path to Healing and Higher Consciousness

By Elizabeth E. Botchis,

Book cover of Awakening the Holographic Human: Nature's Path to Healing and Higher Consciousness

What is my book about?

Awakening the Holographic Human is a comprehensive reference book on healing and higher consciousness through the use of the natural intelligence found in flowers, herbs, gems, color, the human energy system, and the astrological archetypes. It is for anyone interested in physical, psycho-spiritual, and emotional healing; personal and/or planetary transformation; the development of higher states of consciousness; and actualizing human potential.

This book takes one on a journey in learning how to live in a transpersonal state, not limited by conditions and beliefs, but invoking the Mystery, the sacred, the sublime beauty of being human. Written in a beautifully lyrical style, as one reader wrote, this book is more than a body of knowledge—it is a transmission of love and wisdom. In this book, Lilli reveals the light-encoded intelligence within each of Nature’s healing gifts. She shares her knowledge so that anyone can understand the nature of their personal reality and how to expand beyond it into something greater: the holographic human.

The Reality of Time

By Janet Iris Sussman,

Book cover of The Reality of Time

Why this book?

Most people think of time simply as a passive, mechanical tool for measuring reality. But in this groundbreaking book, Janet Sussman introduces the idea that time is a dynamic field responsible for creating the material universe. Readers interested in the study of consciousness will begin to understand the importance of time to the unfoldment of unity consciousness and self-realization. 

This book is a brilliant combination of the science of consciousness and human development, written in beautiful, lyrical language. It invites the reader into a world that is non-linear yet coherent. It causes the reader to quantum leap over the logical mind into an experiential event of time as one's own consciousness. The author describes her book as giving "voice to the freedom enjoyed by those who can transcend time through their own awareness and be free of imposed restrictions on the naturally holographic avenues of the mind."

By Bill Bauman,

Book cover of Emptiness Dreaming: The Story of Creation as Seen Through the Eyes of the Quantum Void

Why this book?

In this book, Bill Bauman merges the scientific and the spiritual, inviting us into a "round-trip" journey into what he calls the Quantum Void—the space between existence and non-existence, from which we can tap into our infinite creative power to dream and realize a greater potential of our human nature.

Bill Bauman is a visionary mystic whose journey began as a Catholic priest and expanded to include a psychologist, holistic health practitioner, spiritual healer and teacher, and world peace advocate. His simple style of writing makes quantum perspectives of reality accessible to all.


The Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe: The Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science

By Michael S. Schneider,

Book cover of The Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe: The Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science

Why this book?

According to Michael Schneider, "The universe may be a mystery, but it's no secret." This book is a comprehensive yet simple visual guide to understanding the hidden meaning in the mathematical composition of all physical form. It is fun and fascinating to discover the sacred geometry visible throughout nature, in flowers, crystals, plants, shells, and the human body. You don't have to be a mathematician to see the beauty and symmetry of these patterns in every expression of God's creation, once revealed.

The God Code: The Secret of Our Past, the Promise of Our Future

By Gregg Braden,

Book cover of The God Code: The Secret of Our Past, the Promise of Our Future

Why this book?

Gregg Braden is an example of one who has discovered how to live the spirituality within science. In this brilliant and insightful work, he links our genetic code to biblical alphabets to prove the unity of the human race and the idea that we are all greater than our beliefs. Braden shows that deep within our genetic code, held in the sanctuary of the DNA, is the universal message that traverses humanity—all cultures, all races, all genders: the name of God. Applying this message to our lives, we can transcend our beliefs, our biases, our conditioning to create a more harmonious condition of living for all of humanity.
