Format: Paperback
Barbara Hand Clow is a noted astrologer, shaman, teacher, theologian and trained anthropologist, a tireless researcher, and the author of a number of important and best-selling books including "Pleiadian Agenda" and "Chiron: Rainbow Bridge Between the Inner and Outer Planets." In "Catastrophobia: The Truth Behind Earth Changes in the Coming Age of Light" she once again reaches beyond the consensus to shed new light and original thinking on the events, processes and anxieties that humans deal with on a daily basis.
The pervasive fear of an impending catastrophe is the motivating force, in Ms. Clow's postulation, behind and beneath all of the obsessions having to do with the structure of contemporary earthly civilization: work, human relationships, the economy, the environment and the state, and the search for healing of these structures and ourselves. But whence this anxiety? Why now, and indeed at periodic intervals over the course of recorded history, have we feared a coming catastrophe, a tragedy of such proportions as to snuff out the Earth and all that lives on it?
In this monumental work, Ms. Clow examines legendary cataclysms and delineates how - contrary to prevailing prophecies of dark and deadly times to come - we are truly on the cusp of an era of incredible creative and spiritual growth. The very recent discovery of the remains of ancient villages buried beneath the Black Sea is but the latest in the accumulation of mounting evidence that many of the "mythic" catastrophes of history - the fall of Atlantis, the Biblical flood - were historic events.

To say that ÒCatastrophobiaÓ is Òmind-blowingly provocativeÓ is an understatement. What Barbara Hand Clow does is give you the keys to the universe. And she just doesnÕt leave you at the gate entrance. She instructs you on how you, and everyone with intent, can access it. SheÕs spent a lifetime unlocking secret doors of ancient knowledge. In ÒCatastrophobiaÓ she gives us a brilliantly illustrated (and lovingly so by her son, Christopher), clearly documented and scholarly referenced tour of the labyrinth with a multi-dimensional vision of the way out. Far out!
She takes you on a trip farther than anyone in my experience. She brings us all to the truth about earthÕs changes over the last 11,500 years that historians, politicians, religions and even archeologists have worked so hard to obscure. In the end itÕs the power of really knowing this truth that is so vast and far reaching. It provides a psychological foundation for immense opportunity to consciously shake the power of fear. She doesnÕt wait until the end to tell you this -- itÕs on page one: ÒCrippled by collective fear from past earth changes...our surface minds are filled with floating images of disaster, guilt, and suffering...We project these painful thoughts out of our inner minds, which creates a coming apocalypse as a self-fulfilling prophecy. However, it already happened!Ó
We have been watching the ÒmovieÓ in reverse!
I am fortunate to have been a student of Barbara Hand Clow for over ten years and have traveled with her (through Power Places Tours) to many of the historical sites she references in the book. Together we have explored and questioned the meanings and possibilities of what we saw.

I had a tough time rating this book as it has a flawed conclusion that changes the entire message of the book. The author of the Foreword is the main reason for this flawed conclusion of the great cataclysm occurring 11,500 years ago which is when he suggests we went through the galactic equator plane. This is patently FALSE as prooved by the book "Galactic Alignment" by Jenkins, as we are going through the Galactic Equator Plane in the 2000-2012 time period NOW. I rated it three stars and considered giving it 4 stars cuz of the good information that can be gleaned from this book. It does establish that a catastrophe does happen every 30 milllion years like clockwork due to the earth going through the galactic equator plane 8 times in a galactic year of 240 million years. Yes this book is a keeper, even with the flawed conclusion that we have already had the great catastrophe 11,500 years ago when we are about to experience it in 2012.

Once again, Barbara has reached beyond the collective planetary miasmic thought processes to bring light to what all people deal with on a day to day basis. Fear of catastrophe is the driving force behind and underlying all of the obsessions having to do with our work ethics, our relationship dynamics and the state of how we are becoming sick, as well as how we choose to heal as a society. The book reads like a text book, so get ready to delve into deep historical revelations. Get ready to go back to school and learn the real truth with immense hope on the other end of the trail. The hope is for a future of total and complete enlighhtenment. We've been there before, and we will be there again. This time, no disaster. Like most of her works you will evolve enormously just getting connected with the truth. Enjoy.
