Publisher’s Description: Creative Thinkering shows readers how to resurrect their natural creativity. It explains that creative thinking requires the ability to generate a host of associations and connections between two or more dissimilar subjects, creating new categories and concepts.

Reviewer's Notes, David Lintner: You might wonder why I’m reviewing a book about bicycles and bikers on the Messenger site, which is devoted to things spiritual and metaphysical. I’m sure I could stretch my imagination and find some contrived link, but one doesn’t come readily to mind. Maybe I should have read CREATIVE THINKERING first. In any event, Anita asked me to give it a shot, and here goes.
Publisher's Description: Feeling stuck in the human dimension? It's all in your head. Most seekers of expanded consciousness know what they'd like to manifest. Freedom from pain and illness, greater personal wealth, connected relationships, deeper contentment, these should come to us when we transcend reality and tap into the 'realm of all possibility', right?
It turns out that what makes us uniquely human-our giant brains-blocks our access to the universe beyond human. Seeking control, having to know everything, demanding results, these are brain-fed barriers to navigating dimensions that have no limits.
Revelatory answers in the search for meaning can seem to be the privilege of only the most evolved, brilliant, or blessed beings.
