Leaning on the Invisible
Leaning on the Invisible is a fascinating introduction to the unknown, a portal into another world which, if we fail to walk through it, leaves us immeasurably impoverished. The whole world has opened up suddenly to become aware of a form of ‘global citizenship’ as, we at last understand, and try to realise the significance and truth of the words, the Brotherhood of Man.

For whatever reason, it appears to be that there is a growing awareness and interest among people in the paranormal: the paranormal, perhaps manifesting in life as a Divine Presence, a guiding force, maybe thought of as the ‘unnamed something’, or the Universal Energy; to many, it will be ‘God’. People all over the world are ‘fascinated’ by it, from countries that live by their own strict, religious codes and practices, to countries that have maybe little time or thought for any form of religion. Always, the paranormal is there, as we make our way through life, for the paranormal (so called), is life: evidenced perhaps in the simplicity of a dream that turns out to be true, in the wonder of a coincidence that can be the means of changing attitudes or relationships, for the better...in the wonder of nature, in the power of prayer.
Leaning on the Invisible is a fascinating introduction to the unknown, a portal into another world which, if we fail to walk through it, leaves us immeasurably impoverished. The whole world has opened up suddenly to become aware of a form of ‘global citizenship’ as, through the medium of the internet and other forms of media, we at last understand, and try to realise the significance and truth of the words, the Brotherhood of Man.
And just as there is a great need for harmony and peace, for a ‘healing’ in our troubled times, so too comes the desire to seek out ‘like minds’; others who share a belief in the power for ‘good’; in the comforting reassurance that we do not travel this earthly path alone. That there is a reason for everything and everything happens for a reason. So too, is the desire to share so called paranormal experiences, as through these experiences, we all gain a better understanding of the meaning of life, and of life itself.
“Leaning on the Invisible is a treasure chest of enigmas; each page – indeed, every page –presents us with stories. There are strange stories of people who have had odd or quirky experiences which, seemingly, have no rational explanation. There are others stories of people who have had ‘mountain-top’ experiences that are anything but trivial. I have met Mary Bowmaker personally. She speaks with sincerity and insight. She possesses a largeness of heart that makes her the perfect person to pen this wonderful tome. She has made an important contribution to the growing library of literature in this genre, and should be commended. Although Mary does not use this book as a vehicle for pushing her own beliefs on anyone, I will be surprised if even the most dyed-in-the-wool cynic can reach the last page without being moved to question their disbelief in the unseen. Leaning on the Invisible, you see, offers a gift of immeasurable importance; hope. Superbly written, I commend it to the reader as one of the finest books of its kind, and even that compliment does not really do it justice.” Michael J. Hallowell
