(See below) If you are looking for an alternative view with a safe and grounded approach and tools to help navigate the inner terrors, this is the one to purchase. Good for those suffering and those that want to understand what is going on from the inside. It's very popular with sensitive people regardless of having mental health issues. Its got tips for all levels of sensitivity.
THE ASTRAL PLANET
This book was born from travelling within and without. Akin to the famous travel books called 'The Lonely Planet Guide'. I was inspired to write this for the Astral world and what a traveller might need on the inner quest one takes to understand the landscapes of the soul's path towards consciousness.
Much in the form of an easy reading coffee table book, The Astral Planet Guide is a great gift idea and an enjoyable journey in learning the important keys of building resilience in order to thrive as a spiritual being living here in one's earth suit.

The Bridge Between
“Odette Nightsky has had the courage and sensitivity to present an alternative view of schizophrenia and of other psychotic illnesses. She believes that people with schizophrenia are deeply spiritually disturbed, and acutely sensitive to the world and the universe - around them. The healing pathway she suggests is one that helps people reclaim the ground of their being, and achieve harmony and balance within their lives. Illnesses like schizophrenia are mysterious - even for people like me who grew up wearing shoes of science and have since flown in all kinds of directions trying to understand what's going on. What I like about Odette's book, The Bridge Between Two Worlds, is that she isn't proscriptive. She gently suggests how she sees psychotic experiences, and then allows the possibility of numbers of paths to healing, including the traditional ones of medication if that's how people feel safest. Her approach is a responsible one".
