Inhaltsangabe: What do you do when a loved one is terminally ill or dies? Where do you go? For many people their world simply falls apart. Whether it is in the scientific or spiritual realm, there are only a few things we can rely on as certain and, even these are decreasing in number. Naturally, many are turning from orthodoxy to the alternative and the esoteric, as they fail to find answers to their questions in conventional medicine and organised religions. The massive interest in reiki healing, shiatsu, feng shui, yoga, life and fulfilment coaching, and other 'energy' and New Age methods testify to the hunger of millions for meaning and self-discovery. Our Western science-based education has left us ill equipped to deal with this sort of thing. It has conditioned us to think that the universe is merely physical - one-dimensional. That what we cannot see in the laboratory or prove by reductive observation, does not exist. But things are changing and changing fast. Science is no longer sceptical about the supernatural. As new scientific discoveries turned old ones on their heads, even Steven Hawkins had to admit, "The theories we have so far are both inconsistent and incomplete." Hawkins admits, "We may never know the mind of God." (New Scientist, 5 April 2003). A paranormal survey carried out by Living TV in the United Kingdom showed that 7 out of every 10 people in the UK have had some kind of psychic or paranormal experience (that's 70 percent compared to only 37 percent who believe in God). As a result of this search for personal fulfilment and self-realisation that more and more people are looking to the supernatural in one form or other. Millions all over the world, from all walks of life, cultures, and backgrounds are now coming to accept that the supernatural world is real; that there is another parallel world. Even quantum physics, and 'String or Membrane theory' the 'new sciences', are being employed to support such esoteric beliefs. Equally, there has been a corresponding increase in the number of studies and investigations into the paranormal (in the form of Para-psychology, psycho-kinetic research, ESP, Poltergeist inquiries, and SETI (Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence). And that's not all. Even governments, law enforcement and national intelligence agencies are increasingly recruiting psychics to help solve problems, and crimes or to predict future terrorist attacks. The increase in the interest in astrology, tarot readings, psychic fairs and exhibitions, the growth in the scientific study of the so-called spirit world is nothing short of phenomenal. Today, mediums are consulted routinely by millions seeking answers to life's questions, fame, wealth, and power or simply as a way of dealing with the loss of a loved one or in an effort to know what the future holds. Even more surprising is how many of our world leaders consult mediums in conducting affairs of state. Another New Age forte is healing. According to an article in the "Daily Telegraph" (1989, page 15), by Sarah Stacey there are: "20,000 hands on faith and spiritual healers" in Britain. ITN News reported on 19 May 1995 that some 6 million British people go to alternative and conventional health centres each week. "You can find a therapist to massage your feet, realign your spine, hypnotise you out of your problems or relieve pain by sticking needles into you." - "The Lady", 14 to 20 May 2002, page 46. In Canada, the figures are just as astounding. 1,200 Canadians were polled by telephone on 8/22/97 by the Angus Reid Group regarding their use of "alternative medicine". Forty-two percent reported using alternative medicine (up from 23 per cent in 1992). Highest use (59 per cent) involved chiropractic (extrapolated to 25 per cent of all Canadians). Those more likely to report using alternative medicine were: residents of British Columbia (56 per cent), females (55 per cent), 35-54 age group (49 per cent); annual household income of $60,000+ (52 per cent). 55 per cent of those using alternative medicine had been doing so for over 5 years. The overall use of alternative medicine had grown dramatically by 81 per cent over the past five years. 146 per cent of growth was among Canadians 18-34 years of age; 76 per cent growth among 35-54 yrs; 49 per cent growth among 55+ years of age. Of the 42 per cent who use alternative medicine, 48 per cent reported being "very satisfied", and 42 per cent "somewhat satisfied". Leading this consumption of New Age healing and Eastern spiritualism are celebrities and "stars" like Richard Gere, Tom Cruise (a member of the Church of Scientology), Cybil Sheppard of "Moonlighting" fame, and Dionne Warwick, aunt of Whitney Houston. Many of them swear by it, claiming that it gives them peace, purpose and success in their lives and careers. Today it is estimated that at least 25 percent of America is involved, in some way with Esoteric or New Age religions. That's more than 50 million people in the US alone. Many of these are not what you might call religious - but they are certainly seekers of knowledge, self-empowerment and enlightenment. If you are such a person, then this book is for you. And if you are not, you will still be amazed and challenged by what you will discover about things you may have previously regarded as common place and insignificant. Your reality is about to be changed. This book takes us behind the scenes to uncover compelling evidence of the reality of a parallel world and the great political, economic and spiritual crisis that is stealing upon our world. "Secrets Behind the Veil" gives us candid and many true-life accounts of the nature and power of the phenomena of Modern Spirituality and the New Age Movement. Have you ever wondered what the 'New Age' is all about, why it has such a mass following, and the source of its irresistible power and success? All of these are dealt with in depth, along with the sensational Harry Potter, and the increasingly popular alternative therapies. You will be taken on an incredible journey behind the veil that separates the visible and invisible world. What you discover may be shocking, but it will prepare you for what lies ahead. The suggestions, questions and conclusions posed may be controversial and bold, but the assertions and views are supported with credible authority and reliable sources. If your quest is for greater insight and self-awareness you will find this book an indispensable source of information for now and for future reference; and of course to share with your friends and colleagues. Anyone interested in uncovering the secrets behind much of today's merging spirituality will find this book thought provoking and inspirational - indispensable. Prepare for an adventure.
