All over the world, there are universal symbols understood
by every culture, religion, class system, race and creed. These symbols are
powerful subconscious drivers of our understanding and perception of the world
we live in and the forces we interact with, as well as who we are as human
individuals. The actual definition of the word “archetype” is an idea or
original pattern/model from which all things of the same type are
representations or copies. The ancient Greek root of the word is “archein,”
meaning “original, old,” and “typos” meaning “pattern, type, model.” Thus,
an archetype is an original pattern from which all other similar persons,
objects, ideas, concepts and themes are derived, copied, modeled and emulated.
Jungian psychology, an archetype is an inherent idea or mode of thought derived
from the experience of the species/race and present in the individual and
collective unconscious. Carl Gustav Jung, the famed psychologist, utilized
these symbols as a means for understanding the path to personal enlightenment,
the way the world works, the way the human psyche works, and how to empower,
heal, or achieve goals and desires. There are human and animal archetypes, in
fact, Jung once said there were as many archetypes as there are typical
situations in life, and they constructed a type of formula for the functioning
of the subconscious, and have the distinct characteristic of showing up
throughout human history in the same form, with the same meaning. He defined
twelve in particular that played a large role in the development of our psyches
doesn’t matter what culture, religion, geographical boundary or language
spoken...an archetype is the same anywhere around the globe, for it represents
the language of the collective detached from the intellect and judgment of the
conscious mind. Often, we don’t even think about how we got to behave, act and
think the way we do, or what molded our personalities, until something happens,
usually tragic, that makes us realize we are not happy, fulfilled expressions
of our deepest selves. This is where archetypes can be an incredible learning
Hero – sent on a quest to pursue his/her destiny. Comparative mythologist
Joseph Campbell spoke and wrote extensively of the “Hero’s Journey” found in
many great novels and movies, including “Star Wars.”
Self – Our individual persona seeking to become completely realized, usually
via the Hero’s Journey.
Shadow Self – Our opposing, amoral, instinctual, primitive side associated with

Persona – Our masks we wear to show others and hide who we truly are.
– Our female and male psyches, roles and desires.
– The perfected Self.
– Mother Earth.
– The change agent.
– Our primitive past of humanity.
– The wise ones among us.
– The nurturer.
– The protector.
– The one who knows how to transform, who has hidden knowledge we seek.
Fool – Our confused, faulty Self.
– The one we assign blame to.
are just a sampling of the many archetypes we may already be familiar with,
including the enemy/adversary/Devil, who often stands in the way of the Hero
achieving his/her mission, and thus, destiny. Because Jungian archetypes are
often used to help understand a spiritual and hidden dimension to our
existence, they can also help to explain layout of that dimension, and give us
insight and guidance as to how to overcome any obstacles or blocks we face on
our journey. But Jung was not the only person to develop a list of archetypes.
We now have so many others to work with that can help empower us in ways even
Jung may not have imagined, all existing in the deepest parts of who we are as
Jung posited that the
collective unconscious was akin to a storehouse of information, myths, stories
and symbols that all humans have access to, and is a necessary part of the
human psyche. Think of the collective
unconscious as a universal reservoir that allows all humans to quench their
subjective, symbolic thirst for meaning, especially when it comes to those
things that are not objective, empirical or direct experiences. Thus, any
symbolic theme in that reservoir can ease the thirst of any culture, albeit in
different modes of expression on the surface (think of using a blue cup dipped
in a sink as opposed to a green cup – you get the same water, but via a
different color cup).
book looks at the history and meaning of archetypes, their use in literature,
philosophy and psychology. But it also takes a deeper look at how these shared
symbols of the subconscious can play out in our daily lives, for better or
worse, and how we have the power to use them to both our detriment and
advantage. As millions of people flock to television shows like “The Walking
Dead” and “Game of Thrones,” or movies like the “Star Wars” franchise, they may
be totally unaware of the powerful attraction these characters have over them,
and the book will take several examples our of popular culture to dissect the
archetypes present in each character, and why we become such rabid fans. It’s
all about what is happening in our subconscious mind as we view these shows,
and fall in love, or hate, with these characters!
Understanding the different aspects of our psyche, our persona,
is what archetypes allow us to do, empowering us to take control of how we let
them manifest in our love relationships, finances, career goals, health and
Archetypes are indicators
of the stories of our lives...and the good news is, once we become aware of
them, we can work with them, even change them, to tell a different, more
empowering story. The book will offer tips, tools and exercises specifically
designed to help the reader create that new story, as well as insights from
people in the fields of psychology, recovery and spiritual growth who use
archetypes in their own work to help others heal, grow and succeed in life. It
also features intriguing glimpses into the minds of writers who create
characters often based upon archetypes that resonate with readers, and how we
are all influenced by these symbols in our popular culture, our politics, our
religious traditions and our relationships with others.
of us, by changing and working with our own individual archetypes, can change
our own lives. And, by doing that, we begin to add to the collective to create
a more loving, empowering, compassionate world and counteract the symbols of
evil and greed, power and corruption. It’s all about putting archetypes to use
at home and in the world to shift the paradigm. And
it all begins...within.

The Ghost Studies:New Perspectives on the Origins of Paranormal Experiences By Brandon Massullo October 17 Release What causes ghostly experiences? Are ghosts real? Why do certain people report numerous ghostly encounters and others none? For centuries these questions have intrigued, puzzled, and bedeviled science, skeptics, and even believers. Based on cutting-edge research and new theories, The Ghost Studies provides insight into some of life's greatest mysteries. The Slenderman Mysteries:An Internet Urban Legend Comes to Life By Nick Redfern February 18 Release It's the dead of night; you are fast asleep. Suddenly, you are wide awake, but unable to move. Hunched over you in the shadows is an eight- or nine-foot-tall gaunt entity with spider-thin limbs, dressed in an old style black suit, its pale face missing eyes, nose, ears and mouth. You finally manage to cry out. The monstrous thing disappears as suddenly as it appeared. You just had a terrifying encounter with the Slenderman. Who, or what, is the Slenderman? His existence began on the Internet, but he didn't stay online.The Slenderman may be a tulpa, a thought-form that can stride out of our darkest imaginations and into the reality if enough people believe in it. In May 2014, two young Milwaukee girls almost killed a friend in the name of Slenderman. Perhaps, like the vast Skynet system in the Terminator movies, the Internet is turning against us and attacking us with digital equivalents of our own online nightmares. The Slenderman has come to life. For the first time, this book reveals the full and fear-filled saga.

The Gods Never Left Us: The Long Awaited Sequel to the Worldwide Best-Seller Chariots of the Gods By Erich von Daniken
November 17 Release When Chariots of the Gods was published 50 years ago, it began a worldwide change in humanity's view of the cosmos. In an era of the military space race, Erich von Daniken boldly proclaimed that Earth had been visited by more advanced beings early in our history. Over the next five decades, von Daniken's 32 books built an ever-stronger case for Earth had been visited by extraterrestrial visitors. The Gods Never Left Us contends that recent advancements in biotechnology, astrophysics, engineering and artificial intelligence not only gives us a fresh perspective on his ancient astronaut theory, but actually validates it. We are, as a race, embarking on the exact same trajectory of our own interplanetary colonization, just as von Daniken suggested Earth itself was colonized. ETs are definitely at work today. And that affects all of us. Why do they do what they do? What could an extraterrestrial species possibly gain from observing us in the same way we look at ants? What have these strangers wanted for the past thousands of years? Can't they leave us alone? And what makes it so difficult for us to acknowledge the existence of these extraterrestrials? This is what that book deals with.
October 17 Release Did a distant race of ancient aliens once inhabit the lands of the Bible? Do the ancient writings of the Bible and other texts provide proof of their existence? Did the "prophets" have close encounters with ancient aliens? Were the "angels" physical beings sent to perform specific tasks by their alien masters? Ancient Aliens in the Bible answers these questions and more. Analyzing the historical and archaeological evidence and using the work of former Vatican translator Mauro Biglino as his guide, Xaviant Haze provides ample proof that what our ancestors described in ancient biblical texts were real-life events and not visions. The UFO encounters in the Bible are described as concrete experiences by flesh-and-blood beings. The angels were assigned specific duties and struggled to carry them out; some even rebelled and took earthly wives, forbidden by their superiors. Your view of the bible will never be the same.
Encounter in the Desert:The Case for Alien Contact at Socorro By Kevin D. Randle October 17 Release The UFO landing at Socorro has been wrapped in controversy almost from the moment that police officer Lonnie Zamora watched a craft descend and land. Zamora saw alien beings near the craft and a symbol on its side, but was told that he shouldn't mention either. Encounter in the Desert reveals, for the first time, exactly what he saw in that arroyo in 1964 and what an examination of the landing revealed to investigators. Socorro wasn't a stand-alone case. Other sightings, some of them nearly as spectacular as Zamora's, were reported at the time. A study of the Air Force investigation of this case reveals an effort, at first, to learn the truth that mutated into a clever attempt to hide the information from the public. MAGIC STUDIES

The Physics of God:Unifying Quantum Physics, Consciousness, M-Theory, Heaven, Neuroscience and Transcendence By Joseph Selbie
September 17 Release
Setting aside the pervasive material bias of science and lifting the obscuring fog of religious sectarianism reveals a surprisingly clear unity of science and religion. The explanations of transcendent phenomena given by saints, sages, and near-death experiencers---miracles, immortality, heaven, God and transcendent awareness---are fully congruent with scientific discoveries in the fields of relativity, quantum physics, medicine, M-theory, neuroscience and quantum biology. The Physics of God describes the intersections of science and religion with colorful, easy-to-understand metaphors, making abstruse subjects within both science and religion easily accessible to the layman---no math, no unity of science and religion and eager to experience the personal transcendence that is the promise of both.
The Secret Language of Spirit is the culmination of award-winning author and psychic medium William Stillman's wisdom and insights in a fascinating exploration of the sometimes blatant, sometimes hidden spiritual symbolism in our everyday lives. With accessible language, easy-to-understand explanations, and fascinating anecdotes, Stillman introduces to the open-minded layperson an alternate lens through which to view daily interactions with Spirit. Stillman's most powerful observations may be found in the chapter that correlates spiritual sensitivity with persons with autism, mental illness, and dementia---individuals whose "gibberish" is often dismissed as pathology, but may actually provide glimpses into another realm. The Secret Language of Spirit concludes with an empowering chapter that addresses the concepts of abundance and achieving authenticity with Love's Foot Rule---12 fundamental tenets. Stillman also introduces the principles of passion, pursuit and prosperity, and how to manifest them in concert with Spirit.
I was twenty-three-years old when
it happened, the mind-boggling event that changed my life. I’d been flying
airplanes with my dad since I was a young teenager and I got my pilot’s license
when I was eighteen. Five years later, I was at the controls flying with my dad
and his business partner as we departed from Andros Island in the Bahamas.
That’s when I encountered something strange and frightening, something that
literally swallowed our new Bonanza A36 and spit us out a hundred miles from
where we’d just been flying.
That was December 4, 1970, and
I’d encountered what later became known as the Bermuda Triangle mystery. For
months, I puzzled over this seemingly unbelievable sequence of events. I put my
story to memory, precisely as I remembered it, and documented the details.
I didn't speak to anyone about it
for just over a year because I felt like it was impossible to be able to
explain exactly what happened. Then I
heard there was a mysterious area offshore of Miami where planes and boats have
been disappearing and I realized what I had flown through must have been the
cause of their disappearance. I told
everyone I met about it. But at first it
was as if they didn't hear me, except for my dad and our business partner. They
always backed up my research.
I was like the tree in the forest
that falls and no one hears its thunderous crash. So did it make a sound?
Likewise, if teleportation or time travel or a combination of the two never
happened to anyone else, did this event really occur as I remembered it? What I
was saying didn’t make sense. It couldn’t possibly be true. But I knew what I
experienced, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
After a couple of years,
everything changed as I began hearing about the lore of the Bermuda Triangle,
the now legendary zone of mystery outlined by Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico.
Over the centuries, thousands of vessels large and small, as well as aircrafts,
have vanished in the great expanse. Researchers gathered stories and statistics
and soon articles and books were published. I discovered that I wasn’t alone,
that others had encountered this mysterious phenomenon. Their compasses had
started spinning, their electronic equipment shut down, and some had leaped
through space and time.
Is the Bermuda Triangle a
dangerous place? On an average day, hundreds of people fly over it and cruise
through it on ships. They don’t crash, sink, or disappear. Yet, sometimes it
happens, and you never know when the compasses will suddenly start spinning
wildly and a fog will surround your craft, a fog that you can’t escape. There
is no reason for the Bermuda Triangle effect. It could happen any time, to
I recognize that many skeptics
and debunkers view the Bermuda Triangle as a non-mystery. They attribute all
the missing airplanes and ships to mechanical failures, human error or bad
weather. They reject anything that exceeds known physical laws. Certainly, in
some cases they are correct.
However, to dismiss all that has
occurred as a non-mystery shows a lack of willingness to look closely at cases
such as mine. As William James once said: “If you wish to upset the law that
all crows are black, you mustn't seek to show that no crows are; it is enough
if you prove one single crow to be white.”
It only takes one white crow to prove that all
crows are not black. As I’ve often said, if any of those researchers had been
flying with me on that day in December 1970, they would have a considerably different
view on the matter.
Skeptics also point out that
similar disappearances involving planes and ships have taken place outside the
boundaries of the Bermuda Triangle. In this case, I agree wholeheartedly. In
fact, the Bermuda Triangle story is like the final twist in a good mystery in
which the vanquished antagonist surprisingly reappears elsewhere, setting up a
That’s exactly the case. Rather
than turning into a non-mystery, the phenomenon extends well beyond its
triangular boundaries. I’ve received dozens of stories from people who have
encountered what I call ‘electronic fog,’ and some of the people have
experienced time warps and teleportation. Some of the events occurred in the
legendary waters off the east coast of Florida, but others happened elsewhere,
including the Pacific Ocean, Lake Michigan, and on land. In essence, there is
no actual Bermuda Triangle, but places throughout the world where warps in the
space-time continuum appear on occasion, sometimes with baffling consequences.
From my years of research, I’m convinced these mysterious events that seem
outside the realm of possibility could happen virtually anywhere. That includes
the Indian Ocean where Malaysian Flight 370 disappeared.
In Beyond the Bermuda Triangle,
I’ll take you first-hand, step-by-step through my experience. You’ll read what
I saw, what I felt, and how I reacted. I’ll also tell the stories of other
pilots and boat captains, as well as the tales of people who have encountered
the fog while walking at night on a golf course or driving their cars in remote
areas. I’ll include stories from famed pilot Charles Lindbergh and aeronautical
author Martin Caidin, and even Christopher Columbus.
I’ll take you to meet physics
professor David Pares, a former army meteorologist, who believes my experience
holds an important key to creating a warp drive that can take us to the stars.
Amazingly, Pares is building such a ship in his garage!
In my case, I was stunned by the
behavior of an enormous cloud that seemed to be chasing me, that seemed to be
sentient, conscious, by the fog that surrounded the plane mile after mile, by
the malfunctioning of all my electronic equipment, including two compasses.
When the radio started working again, the Miami tower informed us that the
weather between Bimini and Miami was clear and there was no plane on the radar.
What? How could that be?

The UFO phenomenon has sparked the interest of America
since the 1940s, and ever since the saucer-like sightings
were made by Kenneth Arnold over the state of Washington
in 1947, this UFO phenomenon has gone global. Books, magazine
articles, movies, TV shows, and congressional hearings
have focused on UFOs, alien life, and Earth visitations; but
no single event has become part of the American lexicon as
the Roswell case has. In this new book carefully written and
documented by Donald Schmitt, we now learn not only about
the detailed sequence of events that occurred in July 1947, but
also how witnesses have been intimidated into silence regarding
the nature of their sightings and their hesitations to report
what they saw. The Roswell case always intrigued me and I am sure many others
owing to the number of eyewitnesses. The U.S. Air force
flip-flops on what really happened in the New Mexican desert,
and the sincerity of intelligence officer Major Jesse Marcel
when he was interviewed on TV in the early 1980s about his
direct involvement in this case. And of course, reading about
the deathbed confessions from people like Major Edwin Easley
and pilot “Pappy” Henderson about what they witnessed in
terms of their alien encounters at Roswell.
It was just the day before when he
handled a few pieces of the strange wreckage at the office of the
Chavez County Sheriff, George Wilcox, 65 miles away down in
Roswell. Now he fully grasped the magnitude of the rancher’s
concern. “Who’s going to clean up all that mess?” complained
foreman Mack Brazel. From the start, that was becoming the
least of anyone’s concern as Marcel and his counter-intel partner
became a bit uneasy over the growing situation. If it wasn’t
ours then whose was it? What was this stuff? Neither of the two
officers had ever seen anything like it before. Their minds raced
as to the possibilities. And there was so much of it.... At sunrise on Monday, July 7th, 1947, Major Jesse Marcel,
head of intelligence of the 509th Atomic Bomb Wing stationed
at the Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) and Counter Intelligence
Corps (CIC) officer Captain Sheridan Cavitt would arrive at
what would become the central focus of the U.S. military for
the next three days. Brazel and the two men had just spent the
night at the old Hines House after the rancher led them there
the prior evening. They would spend the better part of the
next day examining, collecting, loading, and containing what
they couldn’t fit into two vehicles. Marcel would send Cavitt
on ahead to report directly to Colonel William Blanchard, the
commanding officer back in Roswell. The major would check
over the area one last time. Much of the remaining debris was
gathered in an area about the size of a football field. Before,
it had extended for almost a mile. Marcel would recommend
a full-scale recovery operation and the need for many more
troops; 50 to 60 would swarm the area by the time the next
morning had ended.
Non-military people were threatened into submission by
unknown agents of the federal government. Physical evidence
that was not secured at the debris site was systematically tracked
down from home to home, barn to barn, person to person—all
with the authorized intent of covering up one of the greatest
discoveries to befall humankind: the concept that we are not
alone and that visitors from another inhabitance had arrived
on our speck of Earth and tragically met their demise on an
obscure parcel of desert in the high country of New Mexico.
The truth be damned; no one was to ever know the full breadth of what had fallen out of the sky that fateful night in July 1947.
Troops would spend more than two full days preserving that
evidence. Industrial vacuums removed the final traces. All that
remained was a long gouge from the initial impact of a larger
piece of the descending unknown object. Tire tracks covered
the terrain. Just as the desert floor had been stripped naked of
all of its secrets, so too had the local residents. Former presidents, senators, congressmen, governors, along
with the highest-ranking officers in the military have all lamented
their failure in getting the truth about Roswell. What personal
knowledge do any of the self-proclaimed skeptics have about the
matter that supersedes all of these? These remain the same people
who claim to have won the fight against Roswell, yet still are
compelled to rage the war. The sixth man to walk on the moon,
Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, stated, “Make no mistake,
Roswell happened! I’ve seen secret files which show the
government knew about it—but decided not to tell the public.” For those of you who remain curious as to the true nature of
potentially the biggest event of the millennium, read on. Know
that you are in high-level company still thirsty for the driving
force behind this 70-year cover-up. And as General Wesley
Clark personally commented to the author in December 2014,
“If they had any answers [about Roswell] I’m sure they would
have told him [Bill Clinton] while he was in the White House.” Let us proceed; let us find the answers together....
