Thomas Campbell's Book My Big TOE

My Big TOE: Enlightening Book Offers Model of Reality

Why are we here? What is our purpose? How can our own inner peace affect the peace of the world? These few questions ask a lot from the universe, and in a new book answers derived from years of research and reflection are given.

My Big TOE (Lightening Strike Books) is written by physicist Thomas Campbell. Delving deep into the scientific realm as well as areas of consciousness and spirituality, this book is filled front to back with Campbell’s unique, clear-cut model of reality.

Whether or not readers have a scientific background, they will be able to absorb Campbell’s ideas and learn to personalize his model in their own quest for higher consciousness.

About Thomas Campbell

Author and Physicist Thomas CampbellIn the 1970s, nuclear physicist Thomas Campbell had a curiosity in the subjective and objective minds, which led him into the scientific study of researching altered states of consciousness. While also working as a physicist developing US missile defense systems, Campbell helped develop technology used to create altered states in order to explore more deeply one’s consciousness.

Using his research and his first-hand experiences with reality and psychic phenomena, Campbell wrote My Big TOE to represent his findings on the human existence. My Big TOE is based on 30 years of scientific research and metaphysical perspectives.

My Big TOE: A Model of Reality

Readers will discover in this enlightening book a presentation of reality based on science, philosophy, the human mind, paranormal, and more. Merging mind, body, and spirit with sound scientific theory, Campbell’s My Big TOE is a revolutionary book written for people curious about the nature of reality, whether a scientist or not.

TOE is an acronym for the scientific community’s Theory Of Everything, from “life, purpose, personal significance, physics, evolution, and the reason why.” My Big TOE describes the human experience scientifically and beyond, by discussing each person’s unique and innate abilities. This gives readers appreciation for their potential both in the physical and spiritual worlds.

Theory of Everything Explores . . . Everything

Thomas Campbell's Book My Big TOECampbell writes analytically yet understandably for the average reader, and even offers humor throughout the book. My Big TOE covers a lot of material and explores several questions, some being:

  • the purpose of physical and nonphysical existence: why are we here?
  • is our understanding of reality blurred by our culture and belief systems?
  • how collective peace can be achieved by improvements in ourselves
  • the possibilities of traveling back through time or towards the future
  • how meditation can help improve your understanding of reality by becoming more familiar with your five senses
  • are spirituality, consciousness, love, and paranormal phenomena interconnected?

The model of reality presented in My Big TOE can be incorporated by readers as they begin their own individual journeys toward higher consciousness.

The Pendulum Experiment

As we spend time with our friends and loved ones, it is easy to notice many conversations include similar comments such as: “Gee, life sure has been intense lately,” or, “I sure have been experiencing a lot of challenges,” or “Things seem to be speeding up, and events have been pretty difficult.”

From one person’s perspective, current times could seem to be presenting pretty chaotic life events that are unrelated but full of unfortunate circumstances. From another vantage point, one could imagine an inner connected dance that gains momentum as it weaves through everyone’s experiences.

The following is a demonstration of a pendulum wave that was initiated by a single movement, and offers an example worth reflecting on.

A Pendulum Wave

In this demonstration, a single motion started the movement that affected each individual pendulum. If we viewed each ball separately, we would notice its movement and not think of its connection to the other balls. We would never notice any synchronicity. But when viewing all the pendulums, we can see how one action affects all the balls both individually and as a whole. At some points, the pendulum’s movement completely seems chaotic. However, it quickly becomes obvious they are connected as the movement flows into a pattern.

Filling The Space with Your Light

Heart CenterWhen I reflected on the pendulum experiment, it got me thinking about the effects of being happy or unhappy.

When we are unhappy and stuck in a fearful state due to what we notice out in the world, what we broadcast to those around us is that we live in a pretty scary place.

What if instead we punctuated our fear by embracing how we feel and then moved into a heart space? We could then take a deep breath, and move our fear into a lighter place that is capable of transforming our state. Then, with a sense of our inner light, we could turn toward another and share our light. It makes sense that this light would ripple and have an impact on others.

To help, take a moment and breathe in your fears. As Alana shares in the Seven Sacred Steps, place your hand on your heart, and let your heart transform these fears. The following video provided by WildDivine is a delightful reminder to also shine your light.


Learning Into a Process for Expanding Awareness

The following question to and answer from Alana provides insight into the power of intention.

When we direct our intention through our attentive focus on actions like prayer or working with healing modalities it gives us opportunity to learn how to work with all facets of our being.

In this instance, the questioner is concerned that her body’s responses are not to be fully trusted.

Question for Alana: When I sit in a temple, or I move into a state of prayer, or even when I do something like Reiki or Pranayama my body responds in an unusual way.

My head or whole body begins to sway in circular fashion. The feeling is beautiful, but people around me do not feel comfortable as they think something strange has taken me over, or something has a hold of me.

Sometimes my body even trembles or shakes. I can also get very emotional. All this is beautiful for me but it is not acceptable to my family and peers. Can you please explain what may be happening to me, and if this is a distraction that keeps me from following my path.

Opening to Greater Spiritual Energy

Waves of EnergyAlana’s Answer: This is a wonderful question! The act of focusing the mind on a specific intent like when in prayer, or when practicing a healing technique can create physical responses in your body.

A sensation of calmness, or a feeling of lightness is very common when we enter mild trance states. Some individuals notice additional physical changes.

For example, the practice of meditation builds on one’s ability to quiet the mind and move their awareness to a peaceful state, free from external distractions. When centering the body and letting go the active state of consciousness relaxes and a higher perception begins to open to greater spiritual energy. It is not uncommon for the body to physically respond in some way to facilitate the release of any stress, or blocked energy to support this higher intent.

Some people perceive this shift we can call “letting go” as a transformative state that frees us up to expand into a greater awareness of our higher self and eventually the nature of universal love. The more expanded we become the deeper the trance state.

When we fill ourselves up with spirit (or whatever name you choose) our higher awareness guides us while in this trance and we can begin to consciously sense our connection to: universal love, the void, all that is, emptiness and fullness, universal intelligence, god, divine light and information, or as a quantum theorist might state, the zero point field.

Are all Physical Sensations Blocked Energy?

Flowing EnergyThere are different schools of thought on how to facilitate this shift. And there are also different perceptions on how to work with the release of any physical blocks, or bodily responses.

A meditator might determine the physical responses are necessary as they occur, but to not focus on them because that keeps the mind actively engaged in the physical world. An energy healer might sense the response as validation that something is shifting, and use it to heighten the receptivity to intuitive information. Yet, an individual who is working with an energy medicine modality or a consciousness technique may interpret it as “entanglement” and use the state to promote change and transformation.

I think the key is to “allow” and not judge that anything is wrong but ask for greater insight. We all channel and receive information; we enter into trance states all the time. Some people will notice when they “drop down,” or “expand their awareness,”  or connect to a higher power such as in prayer. Their body will respond. This is wonderful because your nature is wanting you to notice a change. When we notice something different it allows us to move past what we know into resourceful states.

Creating a Resourceful State

A few great questions to ask when physical body responses accompany an intention to help or heal are:

  • How can this be useful?
  • What am I wanting to learn?
  • How can this help me facilitate my intention?

Heart CenterThen follow the guidance you receive. There is nothing to fear. Your connected nature is conspiring on your behalf and the person, issue, or intent of which you are focusing. All you need to do is remain centered in your heart, while listening to the answers that come to your mind. This is called heart/mind listening!

When you hear the answers with your heart open you will remain connected to your higher awareness and the physical responses will be useful and not become a distraction.

So dear one, do not fear how your body is responding. If you are moving blocked energy to allow you to expand, that is good! Let it move. If you doing energy work and have a physical response then allow greater intuitive guidance to flow through you. And if you are working with a consciousness technology, like an energy medicine technique the physics term called “entanglement” is a natural phenomena where we experience our connection to all that is.

The more you work with the above questions, the more you will perceive how wise and brilliant your body is, and how it’s response wants to guide you.

The Story of a Transformative Force: Joseph Farrell’s Manifesting Michelangelo

Joseph Pierce Farrell is a well-known pioneer in the field of human consciousness.

His book, Manifesting Michelangelo: The Story of a Modern-Day Miracle—That May Make All Change Possible (Atria) is about the powerful journey of how he healed people’s deformities and cured their illnesses simply by using the power of conscious healing.

This extraordinary account of Farrell’s experience also contains in it for readers a five-step process that can be used to help develop everyone’s potential to manifest change using our consciousness, the same five steps all great manifestors of change have followed before.

Farrell’s motivational book bridges scientific evidence with spiritual awareness, and provides a concrete link for this transformative force.

The following is a transcription of Farrell talking about how our thoughts can change the world.

The Power to do Miracles

Joseph Pierce Farrell PictureManifesting Michelangelo is the story of an ordinary man who one day, with the undiminished imagination of a child, attempted the impossible and succeeded, and discovered a latent capacity: the capacity that gave him the power to do miracles.

People ask me what I discovered. Well, what I discovered is that there is a transformative force. It is a force that exists beyond measure, beyond the understanding of science, and beyond this seeing with our five senses. And what this is is that there is a transformative force that if we tap into, it will ignite within us the capacity to literally manifest change across all areas of human endeavor—whether it’d be environment, or social issues, or health care, or your own life, or your own family life—on a community level or on a global level.

From Faith & Evidence Comes Tangible Change

Manifesting Michelangelo is different from any other inspirational book ever written because it’s the first book that asks you not to believe on faith alone, but on actual evidence in the form of empirical data, photographs, and expert testimony all saying the same thing: that we as humans have the capacity to literally manifest physical, tangible change.

All of our lives, even if you haven’t learned yet to connect to the transformative force, everyone listening and every reader has been touched and your lives have been enhanced by people who have.

Michelangelo’s art, Martin Luther King’s March for Freedom, John Kennedy’s dream to put a man on the moon—all of these people looked and they saw obstacles, and they made a decision that they would overcome these obstacles. And they connected, and they acted, and they manifested these changes.

And these changes, these manifestations of these dreams in the world—whether it’s David, whether it’s beautiful art, or a beautiful song, or a beautiful change in humanity, or a great freedom that we have earned—these are all dreams manifested on Earth.

The Message of Manifesting Michelangelo

My message is the same message that’s been around since the dawn of man, and that is that you, with the faith of a child and the mind of a child, if you believe and you act in absolute faith you can go out there and perform the miraculous. You can go out there and actually manifest changes on the level of miraculous.

Joseph Farrell Talks About Manifesting Change

Reading Manifesting Michelangelo is an Experience

So many of us go through life feeling that we are not making a difference in the world or that we may never reach our true potential.

Reading Manifesting Michelangelo has the potential to change your perspective of life. You can begin to see your life as a grand synchronistic puzzle where all the pieces and events are leading you to a perfect moment.

Book Cover for Manifesting MichelangeloAs Farrell shares the events that greatly shaped his life, his words have a spark to them. You feel his integrity, warmth, and heart. By the time you finish this inspirational book you will feel as though you have found a new friend: someone who is there to help you ignite your inner passion and a sense of purpose. You will sense that you are significant in the world and can make a difference. The five simple steps shared at the end of the book can ignite those sparks of energy that may be laying dormant inside.

Most of us experience life events that seem to thwart our inner callings and creative urges. Farrell speaks to those moments that often alter our path and lead us to conformity. He helps us understand how to use those times so we can become more self-aware and regain our sense of self purpose.

By the time you finish this heart-felt true story, after you see the evidence and pictures, when you’re finished reading the confirmation from scientists and medical doctors, you will know without a doubt the power of your intentions.

I love this book and feel it will play an important role in advancing human potential. Joseph Pierce Farrell’s story is a catalyst.

This book reminds me of something an NLP teacher once said to me: “If one person can do something, it is possible to model it and teach it to others.”

Barbara Evans’ Sacred Geometry Image Keys Increase Positive Vibrations

Former biologist and now visual healing artist Barbara Evans dedicates her creative passion to her Image Keys, a series of energetic and transformative tools promoting higher consciousness.

Evans’ book, Messages of Universal Wisdom: A Journey of Connection Through the Heart (Spiritual Web Communications LLC), can be used as a guide for those seeking to increase their heart’s wisdom.

By engaging ourselves with the power of the Image Keys, we have the great potential to boost and maintain our spiritual existence.

Evans’ art, book, and the messages within the Image Keys offer inspiration to others and a path for connecting more profoundly with the wisdom of the heart. Evans is a brilliant example of what can creatively come forth when one follows their personal passion and joy.

Alternative Healer Barbara Evans

Barbara EvansVisual healing artist Barbara Evans is knowledgeable in many types of alternative healing modalities. As a graduate of both the University of Liverpool and University of Cambridge, Evans is also a Crystal Resonance Therapist and Reiki Master.

Evans started Crystal Wings in 2003 as a place to showcase her transformative art and promote the universal messages of unity and hope to the world.

Evans channels her passion for visual healing through her painting and writing and leads workshops focusing on her Image Keys creations.

What are Image Keys?

Evans’ engaging and stunning Image Keys are energetically interactive images reflecting prosperity of hope, peace, unity, and abundance. The images are to “assist us to unlock the divine blueprint of perfection, both within ourselves and within the Earth.” The Image Keys serve as a focal point for our higher consciousness and increase the positive energy vibrations—such as love, joy, peace, balance, and abundance—that surround their location.

The basic foundation of the Image Keys is sacred geometry—or the geometry of creation. This includes the flower of life, an ancient symbol depicted at sacred sites from around the world. Our consciousness recognizes the sacred geometry and gives us inspiration to achieve new spiritual awareness.

Galactic WisdomFrom the sacred geometry in each Image Key, other energetic layers are woven in. The unity symbol brings together both masculine and feminine energies and creates a multi-leveled presentation of unity. This symbol is also found in each of Evans’ creations.

Evans makes use of the powerful healing aspects of crystals in the creation of her Image Keys. Crystals are present within the physical space where each image is created, and helps channel creative and sacred energies. These crystals leave a distinctive healing vibration within the Image Key. The Image Keys are therefore imprinted with a unique energy signature that resonates with both the person viewing it and its surrounding physical space.

Messages of Universal Wisdom: Finding Peace & Joy

Evans’ powerful and beautifully illustrated book Messages of Universal Wisdom: A Journey of Connection through the Heart offers thirteen sacred geometry Image Keys that serve as a guide to transform readers’ spiritual life journeys.

The full color Image Keys are made with fade geometries that emphasize the different areas of the images and correspond to the text Evans includes within the book’s pages. This text comprises of affirmations, poems, and decrees to provide uplifting spiritual awareness.

Messages of Universal Wisdom is a guide serving the purpose of assisting readers in finding hope and joy in the meaning of their true selves. These Image Keys help many people discover peace and unity within themselves and on a global scale. Those seeking harmony, full potential, and unconditional love and compassion will benefit greatly with the guidance of Evans’ Image Keys. These images are also used by health care workers and therapists in the care of their patients.

The Messages are a Heart Based Tool

When I received my copy of the book, Messages of Universal Wisdom I felt like I had received a “huge download” from the universe. I found the book to be a deeply heart-based tool.

I quickly discovered that Messages of Universal Wisdom could support a reader’s intent to focus on the power of love and the underlying universal principles that unite all of humanity.

I facilitate a group of energy healing practitioners. The other day we were having discussing on the illusion of separation. We were sharing examples of when a major event takes place how it effects everyone, just as when a single person achieves a skill, it opens the door to all humanity. At that point, I spontaneously showed the group Evan’s book and smiled, saying, “Let’s see what The Messages of Universal Wisdom has to say about this topic.”

I randomly opened the book. We all smiled when we realized the synchronicity of opening to page 86. The page displayed a beautifully designed,  geometric art illustration titled “Image Key #6: Galactic Connections.” Written below the image is the affirmation, “I ALLOW the awareness of Connections to ALL THAT IS.” The coinciding page shares a poem to support awakening, integrating and expanding this awareness and a decree stating, “I am One with all of creation.” Needless to say, we all appreciated the synchronicity.

Is is clear that Evans put her heart into this book and pages reflect a powerful personal journey. This author was inspired and guided by something greater than herself. The Messages of Universal Wisdom is a powerful tool for evoking and supporting a greater connection to heart and one’s internal wisdom.

Someone could work through the book as a process, starting at the beginning. Or they could just open to a random page like we did in our group to gain benefit.  The messages that are offered through the geometrical, visual art and the written text can provide a guide for releasing blocks in our energetic fields and much more. Evans provides a beautiful foundation to connect with your heart while taking your own guided journey, just as Barbara did, to a place of higher awareness. — Review by Sandy Breckenridge
