Reviews from Physicists and Engineers
I felt an internal validation as I read Valerie Varan’s Living in a Quantum Reality: Using Quantum Physics and Psychology to Embrace Your Higher Consciousness, as I have lectured on the quantum effects that are manifested in the fusion of science and spirituality. I believe her book will be especially helpful to my colleagues in the field of transpersonal psychology who are providing therapy to individuals who are encountering body, mind, and spirit phenomena such as near-death experiences. I recommend Varan’s book to the seekers who are looking for an understanding of how we all interface as actors and observers in this quantum oneness.

This is a welcome addition to the growing literature of quantum psychology. I found it interesting and useful and you will too. The author has a lively readable style to boot.

Modern science is beginning to learn that the subtle energy field of the body, also known as the "aura," affects our health and well-being in many ways. It carries the patterns of growth and repair that govern the physical body, and it connects us to the higher spiritual planes involving past lives and the deeper reasons we are here in this lifetime. By working with these deep connections it is possible to achieve healing in ways that are impossible using conventional psychology. Valerie Varan, in her pioneering book Living in a Quantum Reality, has taken the important step of showing how these energies can be used in the therapeutic process, and has made a valuable contribution to energy psychology.

Reviews from Clinicians and Energy Psychology Pioneers
I have, as a clinical social worker doing independent practice twenty-three years, used energy psychology for seventeen years as a mainstay of my work with clients. However, I have always wanted a more in-depth understanding of the way energy actually operates in the body/mind. What Valerie shares about energy makes this possible. I have been astonished at her curiosity into and the scope of her knowledge of energy, and how we can take more advantage of it in the process of growth and healing.

I was recently working on an article about why Energy Psychology is referred to as such and the integral connection between energy, consciousness, and universal consciousness, when along came Valerie Varan's book, Living in a Quantum Reality. Synchronicity? Absolutely! This is a remarkable book that offers an in-depth excursion into Valerie's consulting room, and helps us to get in touch with our energy, consciousness, higher self and more. The book explores varieties of our energy from slower to higher vibration, a profoundly important understanding of who we really are. Read this, and read it again and again. Absorb the wisdom and the practical exercises and suggestions for reaching higher levels of vibration and consciousness. This is a book needed for our time.

Living in a Quantum Reality brings 21st Century science to the emotional and spiritual challenges of living in the 21st Century. Starting with an ambitious, if speculative, synthesis of consciousness studies and quantum physics, the book provides wise guidance for all of us grappling with a world that is in terrifying chaos while teeming with unprecedented opportunities.
Valerie, I just watched your presentation. Like your book, your talk is a decade or two ahead of the psychotherapy field! But it is where we have to be headed!...You present this important high-falutin' material in a wonderfully personal manner.

I am just finishing reading Living in a Quantum Reality.
I want to thank you, from my highest self, for your work and dedication in creating this work. It is a fantastic weaving of quantum theory and deep, therapeutic growth and healing. I've also watched the videos you have on your website.
I am an LCSW in private practice for the past 20 years, and my focus has moved toward this kind of spiritual integration for many years. Now that I have read your book (sometimes needing to read a few pages, then set it aside to digest and contemplate), I want to create a study group for clients! And you have already created the exercises!
I truly appreciate your depth and breadth of work and I'm finding I would love to study under you.
— Lydia Byhardt Bollinger, LCSW
Your book is something that inspired my spirituality to tap into the next level of consciousness. Your scientific explanation of energy and vibrations helped me understand how things work. Your personal journey, your vulnerability, and your openness found me. As you have mentioned in the book somewhere at the beginning, it is really hard to find people who we resonate with. So many people are stuck in a dimension where spirituality in general is just another form of distraction from the challenges of life and a comfort mechanism which also helps us to find answers in the “unknown” to help us cope with situations and events. The Quantum world is truly the bridge between the known and the unknown. Your explanation is clear, digestible, and it mirrors your soul.
if you don't (start teaching), you will leave many potential curious souls with questions that are going to take us 10-20-30-40 years to find answers to. If you possess the knowledge, it is your "responsibility" to pass it down to those who are open to receiving it!

As I am reading Valerie's book, I am struck with the exciting possibilities of what it would be like to vibrate with higher energies on a more regular basis. Finally, I can "see" that dissolving my human boundaries doesn't have to feel scarey because I might be "losing" myself, but rather that I would be GAINING the Universe and the thrilling possibility of what that might mean. It has helped me realize how my fears are holding me back to "becoming" what I am meant to be. The more I read, the more excited I become and the higher I vibrate!! I can honestly say that for the first time I am understanding what it feels like to "let go" and feel the subtle connectedness to all that is!!
