Scientists Discover the Human Brain Is Made Up of Eleven Dimensions! In a Newsweek article on June 12, 2017, scientists shared evidence that our brain is able to access a multidimensional universe—and contains structures and shapes that display up to eleven dimensions! Powerful light frequencies are moving through time and space, initiating extraordinary planetary evolution. We are in the midst of higher evolution, moving from the grip of the spider’s web of the lower energies to the awareness of the multidimensional self. Planet Earth is in the process of total transformation, not only on a global and universal scale, but also on personal level. Most people are still stuck in lower energies of the past programming, creating friction within the human body and mind. Their consciousness of self is based on five senses, limited to the physical world, and they are unable to experience other realities. But there are a myriad of different realities and dimensions that can be explored with the higher consciousness. Spider’s Web explores these higher dimensions, other realities, relationships, our connection to Planet Earth, and the concept that we are multidimensional beings.

Introducing Steven Rosner, author of God and Man: Love on the Rocks

“Bridget was invaluable in helping me solve several problems, most of which were due to me, and was extremely flexible when I desired a couple of formats that might not have been standard in the industry.”

Steven Rosner is seeker of truth. He is always looking at the bigger picture and delving deep into the core of what life means. If engaged in a conversation with Steve, you will always be challenged and perhaps enlightened by his unique and creative view of life, Scripture and spirituality. His keen intuitive sense may direct you to a new understanding that you were not aware of. If you want to know a person who is constantly probing the most difficult questions, it is Steve. Steve’s personal life has spanned a broad spectrum of experience and adventure. Steve has worked in corporate America as a systems analyst and driven a taxi, written a novel, produced his father’s play, published short stories, and a lot more. But enough of Steve’s resume, it is deeds that put him in his own category–for example, taking responsibility for his parents care so they can remain in their apartment. Steve goes out of his way to help others when he sees they are a victim of injustice. He is not afraid to get involved. His ambition is to inspire people to awaken to God’s tangibility and the wisdom of Scripture. Behind the scenes, Steve is a kind and caring person. He is a loving husband, father, and grandfather. And while some people, at first, find his direct manner a bit intimidating, his kindness is real. If you go deeper, you’ll discover his intention is always for the best and his heart is soft. He has a strong sense of integrity and honesty. He will not tell you what you want to hear, but will tell you the truth. His soul abhors deceit, so he often feels distressed observing the lack of integrity in our culture.

Book description…

“On the Rocks” was originally a phrase used for ships which ran aground and broke apart. But nothing could be a better metaphor to describe God’s relationship with man-hence the title of this book. For God created us with love and gave us His heart and soul: And God created Man in His Own Likeness; In God’s image created He him; both male and female. Alas, ever since Cain slew Abel, our relationship with God has been on the rocks. Throughout the Millennia, we have totally failed to act in accordance with His relatively few requirements. At best, we have ignored Him, but mostly mocked, disparaged, and treated Him with disdain. We have abrogated our responsibility, whether as an individual or nation, have engaged non-stop in the worst evil imaginable, causing Him untold suffering. (Part III presents multiple examples of the incredible evil of our species, detailing particularly monstrous religious and secular conflicts from 3000 BCE to the present.) Is it any wonder then, why God is estranged from us; why there is unrelenting havoc in our lives; why the world is falling apart; why suffering is prevalent at every level? In truth, no individual, no nation is immune! Isn’t it time we re-evaluated our behavior and altered it-to repair our relationship with God and gain His many blessings. But to understand how, we need to know something about God, something about ourselves, something about religion, and something about history. This book provides that understanding: It covers Scripture and science, God and His attributes, and Man-including his Free Will, Soul, Body and Mind. It addresses Good and Evil, the nature of each, and the role Satan plays in our lives. It reviews six major religions, and shows that at their core they are virtually identical. We will learn that God desires very little of us-regardless of our culture, religion, or ethnicity. In simple terms, He wants us to be righteous, do justice, and love compassion.

Introducing Margaret Watkins, author of The Fine Line

“After struggling for several years to get my medical memoir down on paper, I submitted query letters and manuscript samples to a number of mainline publishing houses and received polite negative responses from all of them. I felt that I had a story worth telling and explored alternative avenues of publishing. After reading an article in SKY magazine aboard a Delta flight about publish-on-demand companies, and doing some research on my own, I chose Outskirts Press, Inc. to publish The Fine Line. The process could not have been more simple, with step-by-step instructions and guidance. Everyone at Outskirts was very helpful, especially my author representative, and the product was a professional and lovely book of which I am very proud.”

Book description…

Sheryl and her father Garry always had a unique and special relationship…and ever since she was a little girl, Sheryl had been aware of her own intuition and sensitivity to things unseen. But neither of them could have guessed the ways in which their closeness and Sheryl’s attunement to the spirit world would manifest, through the grace of God. On the morning of December 18, 2012, about 12 a.m., Garry pulled over to the side of the road to rest, and suddenly died of cardiopulmonary arrest. In the weeks before his death, Sheryl had begun to experience supernatural occurrences, including precognitive dreams, and communications from spirits. After Garry’s death, Sheryl’s connection with the spirit world blossoms, as he continues to reach out to her and Sheryl quickly realizes that God has chosen both of them for a very special purpose. Life After Death: Us Forever is the fascinating and compelling story of a father and daughter who allowed Jesus into their hearts, accepted Him as their Lord and Savior, and watched as His amazing gifts changed their lives.
