Timeshift has as its basic premise an idea similar to the main thought of Secret of the Golden Flower: That we grow not by keeping our attention exclusively on what's in front of us, but by turning our "light" or consciousness around and shining it back at its source. Related also is one of the keys to energy work with the human body, that nothing comes into the physical that does not first appear in finer bodies up the line, and that incipient infirmities can actually be more easily worked with on these more etheric levels.
Consciousness goes in a great cycle or loop, according to the author's direct insight, from its source down through the levels into manifestation and then back to reconnect with unmanifest energy. So long as the reconnecting continues, the process stays open and free, and new forms can easily evolve. When, however, consciousness neglects to revisit its source, the forms of the past begin to weigh it down and evolution's options become increasingly restricted.
The author brings her information from a point very close to the source, so her descriptions are necessarily abstract-so much so that her prose often gives the reader an experience similar to that of reading poetry. You do not get the point on a simple one-to-one relationship between sentence and thought. Rather, you will get a flash of an image a couple of times on each page. This is enough. I could feel myself growing as I read! An example:
"Time causes all matter to move as pearls on a thread arranged in a spiral . . . If you shake the pearls at the center, the two ends will also jiggle.
"When we understand our interconnectedness, time can open us to its rendering value-the creative influence of time on the unmanifest.

For anyone seriously interested in realizing what the "new age" is all about, I would say--read this book. The author not only talks about the shift that is "coming soon," she gives you an experience of it here and now. Her style of writing is unique, to say the least, and is not easy reading, but I found by not trying to understand the words intellectually, I was able to allow the words to penetrate to a deeper level. At that point something in the brain shifted and a whole new multidimensional reading experience opened up. It's kind of like those 3-D pictures that are totally impenetrable in 2-D, but if you relax the focus in a particular way, a whole new three-dimensional experience opens up. I would suggest reading the introduction first. It gives a good perspective on how to read the book.

Healing the Whole, Healing Ourselves Sept. 18 2000
By Stuart Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Timeshift has as its basic premise an idea similar to the main thought of Secret of the Golden Flower: That we grow not by keeping our attention exclusively on what's in front of us, but by turning our "light" or consciousness around and shining it back at its source.

I could feel myself growing as I read! An example:
"Time causes all matter to move as pearls on a thread arranged in a spiral . . . If you shake the pearls at the center, the two ends will also jiggle.
"When we understand our interconnectedness, time can open us to its rendering value-the creative influence of time on the unmanifest. Probabilities spread themselves throughout our individual and collective universe. Interactions occur that heretofore we did not think possible. When we are no longer attempting to escape time but climb within it, the vaults open and the possible links between our venturesome spirit and our creative intelligence can come into play."
If you can relax the need to "structure" this information flow as you read it, you will actually find yourself with the author, close to the source, and prior to the formation of the hardened mental structures we create and then hold onto for dear life because we have temporarily misplaced our connection with the source.
The book has four parts or focuses: the first is the most general, dealing with the dimensions, including space and especially time. Second is a brilliant perspective on the human mind and on psychology. Third, the author goes into the bodies physical and energetic, and finally, a deeply connecting view of the changes the planet itself has initiated.
I personally feel that Timeshift is the most important book I have ever read, and I am no longer easily impressed. This book explains how we construct reality and shows us why and how to clear away the rubble from the matrices we call our minds. It also shows us in a very specific way how to then re-open the heart.
The Whole has evidently decided to become Its own healer, Its own therapist, and Timeshift is Its first book. All thoughtful and open-minded people will gain immensely from reading it.

Experiencing the Shift Sept. 5 2001

Delivering the experience Oct. 25 2011
By Richard Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Absolutely true to its title, this unparalleled work delivers "the experience of dimensional change." This is an astounding act of intuitive cognition - unlike anything else I've read. While innumerable books have added to my life and to my personal reality, this book literally changed them forever.

I picked up my first copy in 2002 at a used book store. From my furiously scribbled notes in all margins - often more wordy than the text! - it's apparent that I wasn't yet ready for it. I got my 2nd copy in 2005, but it has taken 9 full years for me to reach a place where my awareness was prepared to take in this material.

The author counsels the reader to be easy on her/himself, to take the material slowly. Trust me, there really isn't any other way to take it! Janet Sussman plays language in completely new ways, like some densely packed fusion of jazz and classical, improvising wildly and bending notes but laying them all deftly out across a firm and building framework.

This is easily the most challenging work I've ever encountered. It explodes comprehension and reconstitutes it. Do I claim to understand it all? Emphatically not! Did it reach me on levels that I barely realized existed, answering lifelong questions I hadn't been clear enough to pose? Oh yeah!!

If you have followed the work of Jose Arguelles, or the many others who are working so diligently to puzzle out the overarching meaning of the transformation that is affecting our time and reality - what the true impact of 2012 might be on humankind - this book is essential. It communicates on the level of Soul, but requires no complex charts or histories. It is entirely self-referential, spinning concepts both timely and timeless.

When you are ready, you will be drawn to this book. When you are drawn, you will fall through it and find yourself in a new experiential world. As we dance, here, at the end of "time as we know it", this book offers us the opportunity to greet Time in its true identity. You'll discover that time is everything and everything is time. You might even discover your true, infinite Self.. and just in time!

This is an incredible book. It does take some contemplation and study to fully absorb the information but is definitely worth the time and effort. The author has explanations and answers for all those mystifying questions most of us come to the planet with. The knowledge is skillfully presented and written for anyone with an intuitive mind and a keen desire for learning.
