Overview

In a cabin set deep in a Colorado forest, flickering firelight softens the weathered face of an aged wise woman as she quietly reveals her dramatic visions of the future. Wishing to be called No-Eyes, the old one shares her extensive foresight with her inquisitive and often precocious student, Mary Summer Rain. The intense interactions of the companionable pair range from stern discipline to awe to playfulness. And their heartfelt relationship continues to captivate readers from all walks of life.
Phoenix Rising covers an autumn season in the early 1980's when extensively detailed revelations were shared by the visionary. The subject matters cover earth changes, economic decline, the devaluation of real estate, Stock Market, nuclear meltdowns, civil unrest, new diseases, radiation leaks, problems within the Church, wars, laboratory leaks, government upheaval, natural disasters such as earthquakes, sinkholes, volcanoes, high winds, catastrophic floods, wide-spread droughts, and more.
A few of these events have already come to pass. Some are happening now. And many have yet to manifest. As each of these predictions find their way into reality, readers eagerly place a check mark next to the event listed in the 'Phoenix Chronicles' section. Yet the visionary never equated the Phoenix to being the harbinger of our complete destruction or a sign of the End Times, but rather associated it with a world-wide 'transitional phase' carrying us toward a bright future - one filled with hope, balance and renewal.

    Thrilled to see this available as an eBook!

    This is the Best of the Best on the future and predictions. One prediction after another you can actually check them off as they happen. Phoenix Rising is now more timely than ever as I watch the predictions appearing at an escalating rate. So glad this book is now available as an eBook.

    Energy Medicine - Ph.D.'s Perspective

    Mary Summer Rain met her teacher ¿No Eyes¿ by what many would call chance. Having wandered in the mountains of Colorado, down long and winding roads, in search or sanity and solitude, Summer Rain parks her truck and begins to walk and meets up with an old blind Indian Woman who announces that she has been waiting for her (Mary) to arrive. Throughout the course of their relationship, No Eyes taught Mary of the ways of the Universe, the Earth and of the Spiritual Realms. Most provocative, perhaps, is the series of prophecies No Eyes gave as to the world it¿s inhabitants and the Earth changes. No Eyes, a teacher and profit of great vision, has touched and changed the world through the teachings she shared with her able student, a writer, Mary Summer Rain.

    Eerily true

    I read an earlier printing of this book back in the 80's. I am still amazed at how many of No-Eyes' predictions have come to pass. I shiver to think that others will come true, too. Still, it's better to be prepared for what's to come. As the description warns, the book is disturbing. But if you hang on until the end, there is relief. No Eyes' simplistic understanding of 'civilization' makes this book an easier read than the works of Nostradamus.

    Worth reading and re-reading. 
    I first read this book back in the late 1980s when it was first published. Although frightened by its dire predictions, I held on until the end. I'm so glad I did. It was the uplifting outcome I'd hoped for. 

    I now re-read this book every five years or so. Each time, I find additional prophesies that have come to pass. No Eyes, in her simplistic language, has foretold the mortgage debacle, the resurfacing of diseases we thought had been eradicated (Ebola) and many other remarkable occupancies. Now, whenever one of those dire prophecies comes to pass, I read the book again, so that I can think beyond the catastrophes to the brighter future also foretold.

    A helpful book

    I found the story's timeless message of
    'Mother Nature Knows What She's Doing' to be an interesting read. I had googled Mary Summer Rain to learn a few things before reading it and saw many positive things, and even a site professing to 'debunk' the book's author maliciously telling people that she is not an Indian, but a white woman and complained that her teacher, a blind woman named 'No Eyes' could see when she was younger - which I thought was a really strange thing to whine about - So while reading the book I noticed that she never claimed to be an Indian and that yes her teacher 'No Eyes' really is / was a blind woman who Lived in the wilderness when Mary Summer Rain met her in the story - I easily recognize certain conditions foretold in the book have arisen / events come to pass since it was first published, and some things probably never will - I am not in favor of throwing the book out with the bath water over - The value of the book's foretelling of certain CONDITIONS arising and resulting various reactions / causes is no frivolous matter while it conveys good sound advice to us. It is an enjoyable read, and would be a great movie if it could have Mary Summer Rain occasionally narrating from the present time saying 'After No Eyes told me etc, many years later in 1993 / 2010 etc when I such and such happened I realized this was the etc etc' -
