Review: The Ghost Studies: New Perspectives on the Origins of Paranormal Experiences

The Ghost Studies: New Perspectives on the Origins of Paranormal ExperiencesThe Ghost Studies: New Perspectives on the Origins of Paranormal Experiences by Brandon Massullo

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Excellent!
Less than two hundred pages, you will go through this book fairly quickly. “The Ghost Studies” has an excellent Index, and Notes section making it both easy to navigate and a great jumping off point for your own research. Each chapter ( for example “Not Everything is Paranormal” ) concludes with a brief summary.
All in all, I really enjoyed it but I wanted more.
Maybe that’s what Massullo had in mind?

Swimming with Elephants

Sarah Seidelmann

“A fascinating, amusing, and wise account of how someone born with a shaman’s predilections, raised in a rationalist culture, finds her way back to her true self.” —Martha BeckNew York Times bestselling author of Expecting Adam

“From the lakes of Minnesota to the Ganges River in India, Sarah Seidelmann’s transformative journey from MD to shamanic healer is a refreshingly honest and very funny tale of spiritual growth.” —Matt Adrian, author of The Guide to Troubled Birds

“This is an exceedingly vulnerable, beautifully written book and the most genuine spiritual memoir I have ever read. It is also–in many hilarious moments–laugh out loud funny.” —Maria Bamford, Comedian and star of Netflix Original Series Lady Dynamite

Flowers of September

There are flowers enough in the summertime,
More flowers than I can remember:
But none with the purple, gold, and red
That dyes the flowers of September
!
–Mary Howitt (1799–1888)

Tiws Day August 15th

When high the sun in noonday glory rides,
Where willows keep the lake’s green margin cool,
The speckled trout amid their shadow hides,
And dragonflies haunt every shaded pool
.
–Thomas S. Collier (1842–93)

Thor’s day

Ah in the thunder air
how still the trees are!
And the lime-tree, lovely and tall, every leaf silent
hardly looses even a last breath of perfume
.
–D. H. Lawrence (1885–1930)

Spiritual Bandwidth

by Janet Conner

Have you noticed that the next big idea that sends your life into a whole new orbit always drops out of nowhere? You’re not looking for it, not asking for it, not expecting anything, when suddenly, wham, it lands in your heart. And the top of your head pops off like a champagne cork.

I had one of those moments recently.

I had just finished a delightful conversation with Kathleen Deignan on The Soul-Directed Life talking about Thomas Merton, prayer, and finding the natural rhythm of your life. We even sang to one another.

As we were saying goodbye, Kathleen blurte17d, “You are an ecstatic!”

This got my attention because it was the second time ecstasy came calling. The first time, a friend in book group interrupted me as I was describing the intense experience of writing Find Your Soul’s Purpose. She said, “You need more…

The Arcanas

by Sasha Fenton

A tarot deck contains two parts, these being the Major and Minor Arcana . The word “Arcana” means secret or hidden, in the same way that the word occult means hidden from view, and this implies that specialized knowledge is required . The Major Arcana is a series of twenty-two stand-alone cards, the only equivalent of which is the Joker in a deck of playing cards . The Minor Arcana is broken into four suits of fourteen cards each, which are similar to those in a deck of playing cards in that they have Aces, numbered cards, and Court cards.

The Major Arcana

Major Arcana cards carry powerful images that refer back to archetypes that have all but lost their original history and meanings. The Holy Roman Emperor, 15th century power struggles between the Popes, and the hatred of Franciscan hermits mean nothing to modern clients. The…
