Have you known someone who kept repeating the same situations in their life over and over again? Do you know anyone who cannot seem to break free from their unhealthy patterns? In this book, you will get an in depth look at how this plays out in many lives. Immerse yourself in this mysterious journey of a young empath raised by an abusive mother suffering from personality disorders. Gifted with moments of clairaudience, clairsentience, and intuitive knowing, these paranormal occurrences assist her in escaping kidnapping and sex trafficking. This poignant story reads like fiction, but is vividly real. Many will see pieces of their own life in this writing which examines escaping unhealthy patterns of behavior and reclaiming personal power. Showing the underlying psychology, this is a deeply intimate memoir riveting with strange occurrences and insightful revelations. Prophetic dreams and bizarre synchronicities carve this author's world from a childhood wrought with abuse to a woman who finally finds her true self after many poor decisions and mishaps. This book will leave you more intrigued than ever with dreams and synchronicity, and paying more attention to both. You will be appalled at times and then inspired at the next instant as you turn each page. Peeking inside Lyra's world is illuminating and transforming. Editorial Review: "Many people have unusual dream experiences but hesitate to tell anyone for fear of being considered eccentric at best and pathological at worst. However, Lyra Adams lets it all hang out! She discusses intimate details of both her dream life and her personal life, focusing on those unusual coincidences that Jung (and others) have referred to as "synchronicities." Each chapter of this remarkable book tells a fascinating story, one that is difficult to explain using Western science's concepts of time and space. But Adams also discuses how she has used these anomalous experiences to "break the chains" of the traumas that limited her development. Those chapters hold promise for psychotherapists, counselors, and those in the mental health professions who may encounter clients who report similar experiences. Even those readers who would write off Adams' "synchronicities" as ordinary coincidences will find her frankness admirable, and will discover new ways of exploring the deeper regions of their own psyches."

"In this candid and moving memoir, John W. Evans articulates the complicated joys of falling in love again as a young widower. Though heartbroken after his wife's violent death, Evans realizes that he cannot remain inconsolable and adrift, living with his in-laws in Indiana. Motivated by a small red X on a map, Evans musters the courage for a cross-country trip. From the Badlands to Yellowstone to the foothills of the Sierra Mountains, Evans's hope and determination propel him even as he contemplates his vulnerability and the legacy of a terrible tragedy. Should I Still Wish chronicles Evans's efforts to leave an intense year of grief behind, to make peace with the natural world again, and to reconnect with a woman who promises, like San Francisco itself, a life of abundance and charm. With unflinching honesty Evans plumbs the uncertainties, doubts, and contradictions of a paradoxical experience in this love story, celebration of fatherhood, meditation on the afterlife of grief and resilience, and, ultimately, showcase for life's many profound incongruities"--

"An exquisitely beautiful book ...These stories about birds are ultimately reflections on the curious nature of humanity itself" — Helen Macdonald, author of H Is for Hawk There is no denying that many people are crazy for birds. Packed with intriguing facts and exquisite and rare artwork, Birdmania showcases an eclectic and fascinating selection of bird devotees who would do anything for their feathered friends. In addition to well-known enthusiasts such as Aristotle, Charles Darwin, and Helen Macdonald, Brunner introduces readers to Karl Russ, the pioneer of "bird rooms", who had difficulty renting lodgings when landlords realized who he was; George Lupton, a wealthy Yorkshire lawyer, who commissioned the theft of uniquely patterned eggs every year for twenty years from the same unfortunate female guillemot who never had a chance to raise a chick; George Archibald, who performed mating dances for an endangered whooping crane called Tex to encourage her to lay; and Mervyn Shorthouse, who posed as a wheelchair-bound invalid to steal an estimated ten thousand eggs from the Natural History Museum in Tring. As this book illustrates, people who love birds, whether they are amateurs or professionals, are as captivating and varied as the birds that give flight to their dreams.
