First of all, you have to accept that channeled material has any value whatsoever (even it if is not really being channeled, is it still interesting or valuable to you?). Second of all, you then have to read channeled materials to see if it resonates with you. That's the best we can do. Determining truth in such speculative matters is very hard, since (as said of remote viewing targets like other planets) there is no way to verify the data in an analytical manner.
This book is fascinating, but you must be aware that it is purely conjecture. How could the author or her assumed channeled sources really know how an alien mind would think? I have enough trouble understanding my dog at times, much less try to carry on a conversation with an ant, for example. This book seems at times to have the common assumption (much fostered by simplistic sci-fi shows like Star Trek) that all alien "intelligent" life thinks as we do to a great extent, making contact a matter of just speeding up the old body energy level to meet them at a cosmic coffee shop and having a nice little chat about love, peace, and zero point energy systems. I suspect it just aint that easy, folks.
The author did endear herself to me with a comment upfront that it is absurd for people to think they can contact aliens if they cannot even accept other people of different religions or SEXUAL ORIENTATIONS!! I am gay, and I have eternally been amused and at times disgusted with the New Age movement heterosexual bias, where the people assume they are ready to meet true aliens yet cannot even accept a gay human being! Give me a cosmic break, OK? In fact, I find much New Age/channeled works actually just brings out the biases of the originator. In one laughable case, the Billie Meiers aliens from the Pleides are very homophobic. The male aliens frown on dancing (like some fundamentalist Southern Baptists in Alabama!) because they think it makes men look effeminate. Geez, with such enlightenment, I sure want to contact those jerks and sit at their knee to learn great universal truth.
Bear in mind, dear people, that high technology has NOTHING to do with level of consciousness. Back in the 1940's the German Nazi's were the most technically advanced people on earth (until the US developed "the bomb"). Would anyone in their right mind listen to the Gestapo if it arrived on an alien world? I hope not!
So please temper any naive laa laa land desire to contact aliens, as if being alien gives an entity some sort of cosmic truth you do not have. You might just find the same old crap you've found here on earth covered in pixie dust with a high tech cherry on top!
Buy the book if you like this sort of thing. It was fun to read, but I would suggest you be wary of alien chats. First of all, I've found that YOU do not contact THEM, they contact YOU! That is how it seems to really work. And when they do contact you, you should practice the same discernment you'd hopefully give to a telemarketer on the telephone who wants to sell you swamp land in South Florida.
