It's been years since I first read this and I had forgotten how heavily it relied on christianity-centered concepts. That bums me out a bit and blunts the message. I'm sure this is intended simply as a frame of reference so the average reader will be able to grasp the concepts, but for those who reject the trappings, the message gets fuzzy.

Those of a magickal bent know that technology without a frame of reference--the language to describe it--makes it seem like magic. Show a Bic lighter to some

Excellent writing. When the Christ Consciousness began speaking my mind became blown. I was already pleased with the angelic body information as it gave understanding but then came Christ!
Small but powerful looking forward to reading The Third Millennium after meditating on all that The Starseed Transmissions offered.

this book is so beauiful, it's transcendent... it fills me with hope for the future.

A short text with a hopeful view of a spiritual future. A bit slow to get started, but becomes easier.

Much of the last half is a retelling of Jesus's words from the new testament.

This is a bit more mystical than I usually read, but it's worth the time.

Short read, but every word is of value. Non dogmatic. Enlightening to read this book during these times. Ken Carey Expresses Christ Consciousness and Evolution very simply. "The law of love is more than a law, it is the way of life."

Wow. I don't know what I was really expecting, when I dug this thin little book out of the back of my closet to finally read. But I certainly never could have imagined what I found.

Ken Carey's "transmission" bridges the divide between science and religion, walking in sync with many other philosophies including Buddhism, The Secret, and self-actualization, etc. I was extremely surprised to find how many of my own half-formed thoughts (often showing up as themes in my writing) strongly mirrored Ca

I decided to read this AGAIN due to the urgency of the message. With scientists saying that something is going on astronomically, and many respected authors writing books about this time period, along with the predictions of the Mayans & other indigenous groups coming forward to share their prophecies- well it seemed the right time to re-read, to see how the ideas of Ken Carey's channeled book compare with some of the current information out there. The book is beautifully written and even if ...more

Absolutely loved this when I read it, while living at Findhorn nearly 30 years ago. Back then, I thought of Ken Carey as a distinctly Christian kind of New Age soul. How many years it took me to see that the Christ Mystery was something utterly different from what I ever found in Carey or any other of New Age author.

Because ten years after I left Findhorn, on an autumn night of 1997, everything changed:

This is a pretty interesting book - and I'll say I enjoyed it way more the second time around. It's a channeled work, and starts off with the feel of an angelic or star being. Toward the end of the book it's clearly Christ (or the Christ consciousness), but it's always loving, and always striving to remind us we are more than we think, we are connected, and we are loved.
It takes a leap of instinct to even open a book like this, channelled over a brief period and no doubt coloured by the authors own bias and habits of thinking. For all that, there were some remarkable bits, stuff that really resonated,and I shall write more on this when I have had the chance to brood a bit more.

I have a signed copy-it's a smaller book, extremely fun to read through. I would recommend it. Great book on Perceptual Realities.

First in a series of four books, this is a channeled book from more evolved non-physical entities from the 1980s about the coming human evolutionary quantum leap. Fascinating, and probably true.

One of the weirdest books I've ever read. I liked the stream-of-consciousness style and it identified some interesting and thought provoking ideas. However, the premise was just too weird.
