Mysteries of the Supernatural by Darrin William Owens
Foreword by Rosemary Ellen Guiley
There are three ways that people are inspired to probe into the paranormal and metaphysical realms. One is having an awareness of the unseen from earliest memories. Darrin W. Owens is such a person, born with a gift to see and experience beings and phenomena that pass by most people.
The second is through having a personal experience that one cannot explain rationally according to what is considered “ordinary reality.” Often these experiences rock a person’s world and even turn it upside down, blowing away all preconceived beliefs. Many people are drawn into the field in this manner.
The third is curiosity that has been piqued by television, films, books—our pop-culture—and the experiences of those we know.
In all three cases, when people are motivated to a new search for truth, they need solid information to help them find their way. In Mysteries of the Supernatural: A Psychic’s Guide Beyond the Veil, Darrin has written one of the finest guides to date for the spiritual seeker, the curious, and the experienced explorers of other realms. He covers every base important to the quest, whether it is pursuit of paranormal phenomena or experiences with the dead and with beings in other realms. Even more important, he tackles the dark side as well as the light side.
In my own thirty-plus years of researching and investigating the paranormal and metaphysical fields, I have always advocated getting a grounding in as many subjects as possible. Like Darrin, I had experiences from an early age, which I took for granted as reality for everyone. As I got older, I soon realized that awareness of non-physical realities are not readily available to all, and that experiences have common ground but a great deal of personalized subjectivity to them. I realized how deeply interconnected are all the phenomena and experiences. And, I realized how important it is to have knowledge of both sides of the fence—the good and benevolent, and the bad and malevolent. Sooner or later, the seeker encounters both.
Thus, the good seeker needs a broad base of knowledge. I have always said that no matter where you enter the Path, be it ghosts or angels or ETs or something else, if you stay on the Path long enough and go deep enough, you will see the interconnectivity and realize the importance of a broad education. The realms beyond the physical have no sharp boundaries, but overlap and even seep into each other.
Discernment becomes a crucial skill in navigating these realms and validating experiences and communications of all kinds. Without knowledge and experience, there is little, if any, discernment. Darrin’s fine guide will help you learn solid basics and fill in the blanks of your education.
I am often asked by those new to the paranormal, “Where is all this going?” “What am I supposed to do with it?” Stepping onto the Path is a quest and a journey, and usually we do not know where exactly we will go. But if we have discernment, an open mind, fearlessness, and trust in good guidance, the journey unfolds in a meaningful, purposeful way. The journey is different for everyone, even though we share the Path with others.
Darrin makes the point that the veil between realms is opening at an increasing pace, with impetus from both sides. We are increasingly drawn (or even plunged) into experience, and the beings in other realms are increasingly drawn to interact with us, some for better, some for worse. I have found this to be the case in my own work as well. The “interdimensional earth” is already the new reality, and those of us who take time to study will be prepared to meet the challenges of living in it. It’s actually quite exciting—we are all pioneers pushing out new frontiers!
I have long admired Darrin’s work and the integrity he brings to it. He tells it as he sees it and knows it, from his own experience and careful research. This book will stand the test of time, a classic in the literature of the field. What’s more, Darrin brings a delightful sense of humor to it all. You’ll enjoy reading this book—it’s fun as well as profound. It is truly a handbook for visionary living, the focal point of my own work as well.
Mysteries of the Supernatural is now on my Essential Reading list, and I recommend this book as an excellent, well-rounded guide for both beginners and the experienced. There is always something new to be found around the next bend, and you’ll reach for this book again and again.
