"This is a welcome addition to the growing literature of quantum
psychology. I found it interesting and useful and you will too. The
author has a lively readable style to boot." -Amit Goswami,
quantum physicist and the author of Quantum Creativity and
Quantum Economics--Amit Goswami
"I was recently working on an article about why Energy Psychology is referred to as such and the integral connection between energy, consciousness, and universal consciousness, when along came Valerie Varan's book Living in a Quantum Reality. Synchronicity? Absolutely! This is a remarkable book that offers an in-depth excursion into Valerie's consulting room, and helps us to get in touch with our energy, consciousness, higher self and more. The book explores varieties of our energy from slower to higher vibration, a profoundly important understanding of who we really are. Read this, and read it again and again. Absorb the wisdom and the practical exercises and suggestions for reaching higher levels of vibration and consciousness. This is a book needed for our time." -Fred P. Gallo, Ph.D., DCEP, author of Energy Psychology, and President of Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology--Fred P. Gallo, Ph.D.
"Modern science is beginning to learn that the subtle energy field of the body, also known as the "aura," affects our health and well-being in many ways. It carries the patterns of growth and repair that govern the physical body, and it connects us to the higher spiritual planes involving past lives and the deeper reasons we are here in this lifetime. By working with these deep connections it is possible to achieve healing in ways that are impossible using conventional psychology. Valerie Varan, in her pioneering book Living in a Quantum Reality, has taken the important step of showing how these energies can be used in the therapeutic process, and has made a valuable contribution to energy psychology." -Dr. Claude Swanson, author of Life Force, the Scientific Basis--Dr. Claude Swanson
"Living in a Quantum Reality brings 21st Century science to the emotional and spiritual challenges of living in the 21st Century. Starting with an ambitious if speculative synthesis of consciousness studies and quantum physics, the book provides wise guidance for all of us grappling with a world that is in terrifying chaos while teeming with unprecedented opportunities." -David Feinstein, Ph.D., author of The Promise of Energy Psychology and co-author of The Energies of Love: Using Energy Medicine to Keep Your Relationship Thriving--David Feinstein, Ph.D.
"On one level this book offers intriguing information on the intersection between quantum physics and psychology. On another level it challenges therapists and healers to consider the totality, both seen and unseen of the person in front of them, and of the space in between." -Julie Uhernik, RN, LPC, NCC, author of Using Neuroscience in Trauma Therapy--Julie Uhernik, RN, LPC, NCC
"I felt an internal validation as I read Valerie Varan's Living in a Quantum Reality: Using Quantum Physics and Psychology to Embrace Your Higher Consciousness, as I have lectured on the quantum effects that are manifested in the fusion of science and spirituality. I believe her book will be especially helpful to my colleagues in the field of transpersonal psychology who are providing therapy to individuals who are encountering body, mind, and spirit phenomena such as near-death experiences. I recommend Varan's book to the seekers who are looking for an understanding of how we all interface as actors and observers in this quantum oneness." --Neil Helm, PhD, Scholar in Residence (Ret), Atlantic University--Neil Helm
"As I am reading Valerie's book, I am struck with the exciting possibilities of what it would be like to vibrate with higher energies on a more regular basis. Finally, I can "see" that dissolving my human boundaries doesn't have to feel scary because I might be "losing" myself, but rather that I would be GAINING the Universe and the thrilling possibility of what that might mean. It has helped me realize how my fears are holding me back to "becoming" what I am meant to be. The more I read, the more excited I become and the higher I vibrate!! I can honestly say that for the first time I am understanding what it feels like to "let go" and feel the subtle connectedness to all that is!!" -Judy Ford, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor--Judy Ford
"I have, as a clinical social worker doing independent practice twenty-three years, used energy psychology for seventeen years as a mainstay of my work with clients. However, I have always wanted a more in-depth understanding of the way energy actually operates in the body/mind. What Valerie shares about energy makes this possible. I have been astonished at her curiosity into and the scope of her knowledge of energy, and how we can take more advantage of it in the process of growth and healing." -John Harder, Licensed Clinical Social Worker--John Hardner
