A Book That Will Change Your Life Oct. 17 2011
By Dean Taeger - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We live in a time where the fate of the earth itself seems to hang in the balance, and people struggle with widespread feelings of powerlessness. In the past I've wondered, are the many popular books on shaping reality just wish-fulfillment? Amy Lansky has written the most well-grounded, reality-based book on the subject that anyone could ask for, in a style that is a pleasure to read. She makes scientific and philosophical concepts enjoyable and easy for anyone to understand. With a clear, visionary yet scientific approach, she ties together: current theories in physics and mathematics on extra spatial dimensions and the nature of the universe; an overview of high-quality studies of paranormal phenomena; and an overview of common understanding about the nature of reality in various ancient wisdom traditions. She teases out the common links which could begin to illuminate the hidden aspects of our Universe, including the possible existence of a unified field, the "zero-point field" of physics, which she proposes could be the ground of universal consciousness. She then explores the nature of human beings, considering evidence that we ourselves may exist in more than three spatial dimensions, and how higher-dimensional aspects of ourselves could easily affect our 3-dimensional world in ways that seem inexplicable from our limited, 3-D perspective. For me it was a delight to have such weighty subjects explained so clearly, with plenty of helpful analogies.

Ms. Lansky then discusses how, when we rise above the chatter of our daily existence, we can learn to enter a state of deep, active consciousness, in which we are in fact able to shape reality through the loving intentions of our highest selves. And the icing on this wonderful cake: she lays out a program of simple but extremely well-focused meditation exercises through which any reader can train themselves to connect more fully with their higher consciousness, and truly change their own life and help to influence the world around them. I am behind this book 100%. I believe these methods can be used as a tool to help bring about the evolution that many in our world are currently striving for. I'm about to leave home on a 2-month study trip, and I plan to take the exercises with me. Since reading this book and beginning the practices I have already noticed an increase in synchronicities in my life, and an greater sense of being assisted in the life goals on which I'm focusing.

You are more powerful than you realize, harness it! Feb. 13 2012
By Mary Jo Aloi - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you have an interest in both science and spirituality, this book is an excellent read. Amy Lansky writes in a very accessible way, making scientific and esoteric subjects understandable and more importantly, very enjoyable to read. I love Ken Wilbur, I think he's brilliant, but I'd rather have Amy Lansky explaining these concepts to me in her succinct and clear way. She references her work so you can dig deeper and look further if you want to.

I love how she uses examples and analogies to bring her point across to the reader. The exercises included in the book let you take it out of a solely intellectual pursuit and have an experiential encounter with the material.

Amy writes from a place of clarity, both from the heart and the intellect. Thank you Amy for bringing your ideas and experiences to humanity in such a fun and authentic way!

"A riveting read!" Dec 27 2011
By caromia - Published on
Format: Paperback
Amy Lansky's ground breaking book, Active Consciousness is a must read for anyone interested in seeing our world through the exciting lens of a leading scientist and spiritual thinker. As a former NASA scientist and metaphysical scholar, she writes with precision and passion, telling stories that are real, soulful and extraordinary. The author is at heart a consciousness seeker, explorer and activist. Drawing from Lansky's luminous intelligence and keen imagination, she gives methods and practices for obtaining higher states of knowing. Most importantly this book presents a clear imperative to become an active participant for our own and collective well-being.

What is so compelling about Active Consciousness is that it is written with the rigor of a scientific thinker with the warmth and craft of a good storyteller. The author's intimate experiences are woven throughout the book, giving us a glimpse into the intriguing road she has traveled, which often crosses the line between the scientific and the esoteric. Wonderfully complex and controversial ideas are presented with artful elegance and simplicity.

The book also offers many cogent diagrams and details that help the reader make the leap from what is known in our physical universe to what is unseen and clearly present all around us. I highly recommend this book.

This is an amazing book! May 10 2012
By A. Radwin - Published on
Format: Paperback
I don't read a lot of books about consciousness, but this book has fundamentally changed the way that I look at the world. It asks some deep and profound questions about the world, presents some provocative ideas, and then explains what observed phenomena in the world would count as evidence. It is far outside the bounds of accepted scientific knowledge, but at its heart, it is deeply scientific in its methods. After all, it mostly asks, what if there is more to the world than our experience of it? What might it be like? I especially appreciate her way to think about all those "coincidences" in my life which sometimes seem almost too coincidental.

The author has an abundance of analogies and metaphors to help make sense of how to think about these things. My favorite was her use of the classic book, Flatlands. I loved that book as a teenager, and the analogy to a fourth dimension is obviously the intention of the original author so what Ms. Lansky does with it and how she connects it to other thought experiments about the world was especially delightful.

Furthermore, I loved the playfulness of the practical exercises. All of my previous efforts to meditate resulted in me feeling uncomfortable (itchy!) but this author just encourages you to play around, have fun with it, try to imagine other possibilities. Finally I could do a (very) little bit of meditation, but it feels like a solid start!

I highly recommend this book.

it's amazing. Over the years I've tried meditation and felt ... July 20 2014
By Margaret Stack - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has become my guide to developing a meditation practice and exploring higher consciousness ideas and activities. It's practical, well researched and full of insights garnered over many years of personal and professional experiences - she comes at these topics from not only the mystic meditative angles but backs things up with pure science - review the reference section, it's amazing. Over the years I've tried meditation and felt like a failure because my mind kept wandering and yes I've heard from many teachers and friends that that is the exercise - noticing and returning, etc. But I still couldn't get past the feeling of failing to meditate. This book made me realize in a concrete way that the benefit lies in the act of doing, it's not about succeeding or failing but doing. It is an active book, the exercises are refreshing and supportive to starting, expanding and continuing a practice of inquiry into the esoteric realms of the mind. The stories are engagingly relevant and infused with a nuanced enthusiasm that is contagious. I continue to return to this book and I continue to give it away to people in my life who are expressing an interest in exploring consciousness either scientifically or meditatively - I've offered it to experienced mediators and novices alike. One story I like to tell about the power of this book is what happened when I left it with an older Shik man in Ghana who has a 40 year meditation practice. He was complaining to me that his children have not been able to develop their practices, "they don't see the value or importance of meditating". He felt there was nothing he could do to get them to understand, so I offered him "Active Consciousness". He read it immediately and felt very inspired, passed it to his adult children who voraciously read it and soon thereafter began to meditate regularly. If you are interested in expanding your view of the world and your connection to it and all of mankind, here is a thorough account of the multitude of avenues that can assist you on such a journey.
