Product Description


“In Awakening the Planetary Mind, Barbara Hand Clow tells the story of who we really are and how we got here. Never before has there been a telling of history from such an experiential point of view so pertinent that it ties our global, present-day conscious existence with all its political, academic, and religious dogmas to a great catastrophe of our remote past and an ecological Golden Age that existed before; a truly remarkable accomplishment and fascinating book. I couldn’t put it down.” (Edward F. Malkowski, author of Ancient Egypt 39,000 BCE)

“Between lines of text exists an unseen world. Barbara Hand Clow, with her inimitable ability, peered into this world with laserlike vision and has thrust it before us in a way that cannot be ignored. As an engineer who is grounded in three-dimensional reality, Awakening the Planetary Mind reads between my lines with insight and clarity.” (Christopher Dunn, author of The Giza Power Plant)

“Grandmother Sky (Barbara Hand Clow) has captured the essence of Mother Earth as a living energy within the Universal Circle in Awakening the Planetary Mind. The book reveals some universal dynamics that help us understand our connection to the past here on Turtle Island. We can truly learn from the past that we have the ability to change and to begin again.” (J. T. Garrett, Ed.D., M.P.H., member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee from North Carolina and author)

“Clow’s book is mind-expanding, provocative, hopeful, hard-to-put-down, and pertinent as we confront the many crises of today.” (, October 2011)

“Clow is an active agent for positive change, and her last chapter on Goddess Alchemy presents a path for planetary awakening.” (Dell Horoscope)

“Compulsive, compelling, and authoritative. An important addition to our understanding of ancient catastrophes and their impact on human consciousness. Essential reading for the alternative prehistorian.” (Andrew Collins, author of Gateway to Atlantis and From the Ashes of Angels)

“It takes a mind versed in interdisciplinary studies to fully understand, integrate, reassemble, and then accurately teach this complex subject. Barbara has that kind of mind. And her detective work is conveyed admirably.” (Freddy Silva, researcher, photographer, and author of Common Wealth)

“In Awakening the Planetary Mind, Barbara Hand Clow, with a perceptive voice, invites us to explore the unknown crevices of the past through her uncommon spiritual eye.” (Rand Flem-Ath, author of When the Sky Fell)

“I find this book mind-expanding, provocative, and offering an important contribution to our self-understanding as a species, especially as we face important decisions in these critical times.” (Matthew Fox, author of Original Blessing)

Simply an amazing understanding of our past, present and future. I could not put this book down. It confirmed many things for me, but also brought new information to the table which provided important pieces to my puzzle. I am deeply indebted for this experience of her mind!

HASH(0x9af2975c) out of 5 stars Alarm clock of the New world Nov. 14 2011
By Robert J. Dunkel - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Thank you Barbara Hand Clow for this timely update from your original work Catastrophobia. As the Mayan Calendar has unwound to its quantum potential now is the moment not only for greater awakening but also a time to remember what we have long forgotten. With meticulous detail this book lays bare this adventure to remember the pain we have long buried in our bones and that has been preserved for centuries in oral traditions. The near destruction of this planet about 11,500 BCE is like a computer file of fear that needs to be deleted from our data banks. Through the detail and time that this book gives the reader to understand all the ramifications of these buried histories one is driven to release the hurt that has held us all hostage and the realization that all of us through opening our hearts can begin to live in a new and more compassionate world.

HASH(0x9b10c5b8) out of 5 stars More of an objective survey, includes dubious sources Feb. 27 2012
By MysticJaguar - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a good general survey of ideas behind who we are, how we got here, and what might be coming. If you are relatively new to metaphysics and alternative histories then this is an ok read. However, beware, the author does include dubious sources such as Carl Calleman who's alternate Mayan calendar, with an end date of October 28 2011 has been thoroughly rejected by Mayan scholars.

But really, it's hard to see what unique gifts or vision are brought forward in this book. This book is very much 'in the head', meaning it just reading about facts and this and that. The key to passing into any new world is certainly how to refer to information through experiencing your body. The integration of mind and body is necessary to really progress on the spiritual path of awakening. And this book does not offer anything to help the aspirant progress. It is very objective and does not really touch you. It's mostly just facts and you are not shown how to interact with anything beyond just reading about it.

HASH(0x9aeb76a8) out of 5 stars A Welcome Companion to Her Other Books March 27 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After reading both the Mayan Code and Catastrophia, I was please to find that Barbara Hand Clow had written another book that expanded on the ideas from those books, and I was not disappointed. This book may not be for everyone, but when considered along with those other two books, Awakening the Planetary Mind helps reveal some answers to many of the puzzles that have confounded people for centuries. I particular like how Hand Clow doesn't automatically attribute things like the Pyramids of Giza and other archaeological sites to extraterrestrials, but show how human beings living on Earth were able to accomplish such engineering marvels.

As far as what a previous reviewer said, that the book just gives intellectual information about the subject matter, I guess the reviewer overlooked Hand Clow's extensive references and end notes that cite her sources and help expand her ideas even further. I bought one of these, The Language of Emotions, and can say that if you are looking for more "emotional depth," then it will provide all that you may desire. Otherwise, I think Hand Clow's book provide much food for thought and certainly many ideas that can be explored further in future books.

HASH(0x9aeb7ca8) out of 5 stars Worth reading! March 21 2014
By Yelena Shekhtman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This revised edition is so-o-o much better than other books by the same author. It's well written, is more informative, cites and clearly explains good sources (most of which are far from being recognized by mainstream academia in any near and far future), does less other-planetary channeling, and thus appeals, with its this-worldly language, to this barely awakened human reader. It's definitely more than worth reading, waking up and building upon.

HASH(0x9bcd33fc) out of 5 stars Awkening the Planetary Mind: Beyond the trauma of the Past to a New Era of Creativity Sept. 26 2012
By Patrik Swanstrøm - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Barbara Hand Clow has an immense knowledge in archeology, history, astrology and psychology. She manage to convey these insights to the reader without being difficult or scholarly complex. And we easily accept her findings as true ones. That is an amazing achievement from an author balancing her text between so many disciplines. Her thoughts and insights are great. Describing world phenomenons that most us never will or can comprehend. Myths are created and deconstructed. She explains the fundamental principles for how that works. And her theories are needed right now, in a world collapsing, and new myths are finally emerging.
