Connects the arrival of a new type of children with the fulfillment of the Fifth World of the Mayan Calendar and other great prophecies • Provides detailed information about the world changes that will take place before and after December 21, 2012 • Explores the seven "root races" representing the genetic gene pool of the human family and the phenomenon of soaring intelligence • Explains the grand sweep of human evolution and the worldwide ascension of energy now occurring, which will take humanity to the next level of development According to prophecy, the fifth sun or fifth world of the Mayan calendar moves into a higher octave of vibration, or ascension, on December 21, 2012. This date represents a "gateway" of planetary development that will open humanity to new ways of living and new worlds of opportunity. Ancient traditions have foretold that our successful passage through this gateway depends on the "fifth root race"--new stock in the human gene pool--destined to help us through the exciting and massive changes ahead. In Beyond the Indigo Children P. M. H. Atwater illuminates the characteristics of the fifth root race, the capstone being the extraordinary "new children," those brilliant and irreverent kids born since 1982. She explores the relationship of the new children to the prophecies in the Mayan calendar and other traditions, providing extensive background information about the seven root races (the sixth and seventh of which haven’t yet appeared) and the great shifting of consciousness already underway. She reveals the connection of the seven root races to the seven chakras, and how the fifth chakra--the chakra of willpower--will be opened for humankind as the new children grow to maturity. She also discusses the phenomenon of soaring intelligence and undeveloped potential and provides concrete guidance and tools for those who seek to understand and help the new children achieve their full potential. Beyond the Indigo Children is the first major study of today’s children, and their place in our rapidly changing world, that combines objective research with mystical revelation and prophecy.

Children develop in so many ways - physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Story is just one of the ways to foster and support a child's faith development. They can find role models in the positive characters in literature, and develop empathy for others when they see a different point of view presented. Children's Books that Nurture the Spirit is an introduction to quality children's literature for spiritual development. The most current and readily available children's literature is reviewed by the author. In addition, Granahan suggests ways for leaders to use and extend the literature.

Many world legends suggest that at any given time, seven sages walk the Earth, tasked with the responsibility to anchor wisdom on behalf of humanity. Each one stands as the personification of a different rung of human consciousness. Together, they represent humanity's innate ability to save itself-or doom itself. Earthwhisperer knows the secrets of the Earth, its pleasures, and its pains. Lila understands the nature and workings of sacred pleasure. Solomon has learned how to wield both moral and ethical power. Philomel has captured the art of immaculate loving and heartfelt joy. Dattatreya lives out his version of crazy wisdom with his innovative family. Marianina is fey, with a vast and accurate perspective on the human soul and its cosmic context. Horus is a human sun, the indicator of human destiny, well above normal human consciousness. At this time, the sages have the profound challenge to help humanity reclaim balance, compassion, and hope-when these qualities seem lost forever. Through a whirling cascade of shifts in perception, can the sages inspire each person to embrace his or her unique brand of wisdom in time?"

Segal reconstructs the development of the "two powers in heaven" heresy through prudent dating of the stages of the rabbinic traditions. Segal stresses the importance of perceiving the relevance of rabbinic material for solving traditional problems of New Testament and gnostic scholarship, and at the same time maintains the necessity of reading those literatures for dating rabbinic material.

In ancient times the man was very dependent on the nature and natural phenomena. The world in the conception of people of that period was divided into three parts–the sky, the earth, and the underworld. This image of the world was depicted as the World Tree which united these three worlds into a single entity. The World Tree was a symbol of the three worlds–its crown represented the sky, its trunk was the symbol of the earth, the roots were the symbol of the underworld. The world of the ancient Slavs consisted of three parts: Prav–the world of gods, Yav–the world of people, and Nav–the underworld. The beliefs of the Slavic tribes, both western and eastern, were connected with worshipping different tribal deities and spirits. The Slavs who were living on the vast territory of Europe in ancient timed had some common gods with similar names as the ancestors of the Slavs used to be united. Besides, the Slavs worshipped the powers of nature–they deified the sun, the moon, natural phenomena, theologizing them, and believed that natural phenomena depended on the will of gods. Therefore, to gain gods’ good grace people tried to blandish them in different ways. Special sacred rituals were held for this purpose at a particular time of the year, they made sacrifices to gods, asked the gods for help in prayers and thanked for success. Svarog and Damp Mother Earth were some of the most ancient gods. The book is written in a simple and clear language and is intended for a wide circle of readers interested in mythology, ancient history and culture. The book contains a lot of ethnographic, historic and occulted information as well as stylized pictures of ancient Slavic gods and spirits.

Why, you may ask, the collection is entitled «Heavenly River»? Itʾs easy: there is a famous myth in Japan. Every child in Japan knows it. It is about a shepherd and his beloved weaver who were separated on the opposite banks of the Heavenly River (the Milky Way). Therefore, every year the Japanese celebrate the seventh day of the seventh moon (July) honouring fidality, love and patience. Everybody strives to distinguish himself in some craft or artfulness in poetry writing. In the collection «Heavenly River» there are myths about creation of the world, the first gods and legendary emperors collected and retold in a clear way. There are also popular in Japan legends of the supernatural in Horai and kaidan style, stories and parables. With all my heart I wish you pleasant reading and immersion into the unique world of Ancient Japan!
