Welcome to M.C.V Egan
Good morning and today be are doing a HUUUUGGGE giveaway and book blitz. M.C.V. Egan is the pen name chosen by Maria Catalina Egan the author of The Bridge of Deaths. Catalina was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1959, one of eight children.
Today she asks is paranormal the new ‘normal’? I am giving away a beautiful bag of crystals to the person who leaves the best comment and Catalina is prepared to snail mail one book to a UK follower of my blog who makes a request through the contact form and mentions my name. You can’t ask for more!!!!
So tell us, what are your views on the paranormal? Do you believe that crystals have the power to unlock illness within the body and set it free? E.C.V Egan does.
Her book The Bridge of Deaths is a love story and a mystery. Fictional characters travel through the world of past life regressions and information acquired from psychics as well as archives and historical sources to solve "One of those mysteries that never get solved" is based on true events and real people. The journey will take you to the possibility of finding yourself in this lifetime, by exploring past lives.
Paranormal according to the Random House Dictionary of the English Language (Second Edition out in 1987) is ‘of or pertaining to the claimed occurrence of an event or perception without scientific explanation, as psychokenisis, extrasensory perception, or other purportedly supernatural phenomena.’
The word is given roots from around 1915-1920. Of course wonderful reported ghost appearances, seers, astrologers and any number of psychic phenomena have been around for far longer than that. The word is also linked to other negative connotations such as Occult and I won’t bother to make you laugh with the long list I found in my Thesaurus.
Words that today are not threatening were in past generations loaded with fear provoking Taboos. I was personally raised this way, the forbidden fruit that was not to be touched and that would provoke terrible consequences. I was cautioned by the common urban fantasy of the young woman who was told by a psychic she would die at a certain age and when this did not come to pass she went mad and spent the rest of her living days in an insane asylum.
Fortunately I was a rebellious, curios soul also fortunately in 1987 we had the massive Harmonic Convergence and the world shifted monumentally in the way it interpreted what had been “unacceptable”.
The ‘New Age’ movement gave us so many books that became mainstream and acceptable pretty much everywhere. I know I speak to you from the perspective of America and that Europe is far more open to explore. This being said I had my foot on each continent at the time and my observation is that perception in such matters also influenced European minds.
I had dabbled a little here and there trying to decide whether to stay on course in the religion I had been raised or to espouse this amazing energy I could feel almost touch and see all around me. I did not have to put much effort into learning as the saying goes ‘when the student is ready the teacher will appear’ manifested in my life as such a powerful, visible and strong force that I could not chose any other path.
I do not exaggerate when I say that books fell off shelves and right by my feet or literally hit my arm s if magically screaming “READ ME” I befriended people that on the surface seemed so every day and turned out to be masterfully learned in matters such as crystals, different healing or divination modalities. I will not pretend to have been so brave, open and just plunged in…no I wasn’t. One of these great teachers who guided me often described me as someone who clung to the past kicking and screaming afraid to meet her fate.
That was a quarter of a century ago, today I dance around my fate smiling holding on the beautiful crystal ...today it is Lapis lazuli…I have a writing deadline I need to work with my 5th Chakra - my communication center. Tomorrow I will probably hold an Amethyst and look at fate full in the face ask for Enlightenment and open my heart and shout out to the Universe “I am ready.” In 2012 dare we say ‘paranormal’ is the new ‘normal’?
