Through the Third Eye
In this fast-moving thriller, Clay Barton and Shali Faisal are seeking ancient documents hidden since the beginning of recorded time--documents that could forever change the course of human history. By using CIA parapsychology techniques for past life regression, they finally locate this treasure trove of ancient knowledge, but not before a harrowing journey that takes them around the world. Now is the time to reveal the secrets, but a dangerous and unknown force is trying to stop their efforts. This thought-provoking thriller may make you think about the world and events in a new and disturbing way.
Clay Barton has been regressing people for years. He gained access to temporarily declassified Past Life Regression protocols used by the CIA when he worked at the Stanford Research Institute. Since then he has been something of an armchair treasure hunter. He takes his roaming parapsychology practice direct to his subjects, guides them through their past lives and coaxes out information about lost valuables or hidden treasures from long ago. The subjects remember almost nothing of their sessions so the rewards are all his for the taking.
Despite his success, there is one treasure that continues to elude him and he thinks it could be the big one. He has only heard whispers about this collection of “hidden writings” that have ties to influential and famous figures in history. But no matter what he tries, he can not get souls to open up during the regressions. The secret remains heavily guarded.
Determined to uncover this elusive prize, he sets off around the world with his colleague Shali Faisal. Their one-time affair of the past continues to poke into their professional treasure hunting relationship. But together, they must make contact with present-day people whose past-lives are tied to the writings. Clay and Shali soon realise there is a reason these writings have been hidden and protected for millennia: the knowledge contained within them could change the world as we know it. However, there are certain groups who will use any means to ensure this never happens. Rough and tumble jousting with these groups keeps this thriller fast moving.
Intellectual and thought-provoking historical connections will challenge many accepted paradigms which may cause the reader to rethink the world around us.
Background on the Trilogy:
Nearly five years of research went into the Third Eye Trilogy, much of which involved the historical characters portrayed in the past life regression sessions. Lynn looked for documented historical details to make interconnections between different lives across thousands of years. A great deal of time was also spent researching hypnotic regression techniques used by psychologists across the world. This information was the foundation behind the technology and parapsychology techniques used by Clay and Shali to find the secrets. To ensure a high degree of accuracy for the reader's benefit Lynn personally visited many of the geographical settings.
Controversial, educational and entertaining
Here's the thing: what if the western world's religious figures were all intertwined? What if the Judea-Christian worldview was the result of a few souls being reincarnated over and over for centuries? That's the premise of this excellently researched story about two new age scientists who interview people trying to find the secrets to unfathomable treasure and knowledge. While the premise for each regression interview (as it's called when a soul is being asked to remember memories of past lives) feels a bit stiff and familiar, the stories that the characters bring to life will keep you swiping pages for the next big discovery.
There's a mixture of genders and religions - some of these readers may find irreverent or shocking - but taken in the spirit of pluralism and universality in which the book is intended, this an ambitious book that leaves you wondering what happens in the next one in the series. I knew much of the Christian and Jewish traditions as explained through prominent souls but learned new things about Islam as well as the ancient Greeks.
Has a feel of the Da Vinci code to it without the Hollywood stunts.
Interesting, full of original
I've ready this book in 2 or 3 days... It's one of those books you can't leave on the table..you have to finish it ! Probably it's also beacause if my work, I'm a psychologist and I do Past Life Regression, so my interest had something to do with my work and my life.
Obviously, it's a book ! Full of adventures keeps you always on a rope.... I'm sorry but I'm italian and my english knowledge is not deep enough to use the correct slang... Anyway, what I mean is that if you are interested in PLR read it always keeping in mind that it's fiction... but some of the things written truly happen during the sessions ! I think that Lynn had studied deeply, either history than PLR, good job Lynn !
UFR Reviews Through the Third Eye, February 19, 2012
I've been interested in this book and books like it because I have always been interested in the way the human mind works. I mean seriously the things people can come up with in their brains or actions people take part in always boggle the mind when you break it down to the psychology. Even with my fascination with psychology I know very little about the idea of past life regression, and I find the idea intriguing and really an interesting twist to write a story about. I think one of the main things I appreciated about the book was that I learned a lot about things just throughout the course of reading the book. I think the author spent a lot of time with research, or worked in some kind of field similar to the subject matter in the book in order to be able to so eloquently "talk" to the reader in a way that was both easy to understand as well as easy to pick up and learn.
I think the premise of the book over all is a fairly interesting one, I mean they are looking for specific documents and the way they go about looking for them is through sessions about people's past lives. It's not a common theme in books, so you have to give the author a lot of props for the originality alone. If you think about all the books you have read where people are looking for an object or for something in general it reads more like a cop novel, and to me this did not have this feel.
I also want to mention the skill in the writing itself. I find books with a lot of dialogue in it often doesn't give the reader enough information. There is something to be said for being able to read a book that is primarily coming from within a character's head, it not only gives you insight into the character but as well as the surroundings. Of course dialogue is always important, especially in progressing the plot, but when it's too dialogue heavy sometimes as a reader you don't feel like you are getting enough information. This is certainly not the case with this book, and I appreciate the skill level that took on the authors part.
Although I was not entirely sure what to expect when I started this book it was really a quality book. I was impressed by not only the level of knowledge and research, but also in the skill of the writing. Another thing that impressed me is how I could easily see how this book would appeal to people who like all different kinds of genres. I could see a person who enjoyed thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, crime books, and a lot of others kinds enjoying this book. So basically if you are someone who visits my site regularly I think this book would be appealing to you based on that fact alone.
