Book One of the Shiveya Series
Connection: The Discovery of a Soul System tells the true story of two men brought together through synchronicity who embark on a project to communicate with a mind from beyond our physical world. Connection follows the journey of Brough Perkins, a psychic medium who has appeared regularly in Canadian mainstream media, and paranormal experimenter John Topp, as they forge a bond which ultimately results in opening the door to a new endeavour in mediumistic contact.
Through these contacts, the reader is given access to extraordinary insights from a non-physical entity, on the nature of evolution, relationships, and the spirit realm, and sketches of a future for humanity as a space travelling race. As the relationship develops, the voice, speaking through Perkins and in dialogue with Topp, provides an identity connecting it to the ancient history of our world.
PRESS RELEASE — Popular Canadian psychic Brough Perkins co-authors a new book based on channelling sessions with a voice from beyond our physical world
May 26, 2021
TORONTO — Toronto publisher Iguana Books announces the release of Connection: The Discovery of a Soul System, by psychic Brough Perkins and paranormal experimenter John Topp.
Perkins has given thousands of readings in his 20 years as a working psychic. He has been featured on mainstream media, been profiled in books on the paranormal, and used his abilities to help police find the bodies of missing persons. “I can’t think of anything more rewarding than that,” says Perkins, whose channelling sessions formed the basis of the book released May 24.
Connection was compiled and narrated by Topp, a Toronto tech specialist who has had a lifelong interest in synchronicities and other paranormal phenomena. Connection is a labour of love for Topp, who says he felt compelled to release the book after he and Perkins were jointly drawn into channelling sessions with a voice from beyond the physical world beginning in 2015.
The voice spoke through Perkins, with Topp asking questions, helping to establish the energy needed for the channelling sessions to take place, and recording Perkins’ voice on audio.
Fans of other book series based on channelling sessions (including the Seth Books by Jane Roberts) will be fascinated to read this account of two men, brought together by synchronicity, who bring back insights from beyond the physical world for the benefit of people living now.
Connection is one of several planned volumes based on the channelling sessions, which explored topics ranging from the nature of the relationship between self and others to the nature of change and evolution and the future of humanity through spiritual and technological advancement.
“I’m instinctively drawn to the idea that our minds and our reality aren’t self-contained,” says Topp, who has been fascinated by paranormal phenomena since he was a child. “Everything in nature is permeable and in a constant state of exchange with everything else around it.”
To skeptics, Topp and Perkins suggest keeping an open mind. “We have provided a lot of story and context around the channelling work so people can see how it came to be,” says Topp. “Through the book and additional material that we will provide online over time, people can make their own minds up about what is going on.”
Perkins challenges skeptics to think about who they’ve helped. “I am busy trying to be of some use. I have psychic powers and I will try to open minds and point to a star. It’s all I can do.”
