Reading Lavender is a voyage into a range of
our dreaming psyche that reaches beyond the mundane,
calling attention to the corruption of our environment,
which has gathered speed during the nuclear age. The
author has done with the intrinsic honesty of dreams
what Al Gore and others have done with hard scientific

Eckhart used to say, "If you sense a need to pray a
thank you is all you have to say." I finished Lavender
early this morning and I want to say thank you for what
you have done. Your gift to us is so unique - generosity
of response, years of profound reflection, creative
interpretations, scintillating dialogue, and incredible
inspiration for us to become intensely intimate with our
Mother and her dynamics.

This book is inspirational and boundary expanding with a
major role in developing the emerging paradigms required
for inner and outer ecological survival. It beautifully
integrates diverse concepts on dreams and how they
facilitate our connectivity throughout space-time and

This book offers a strong testimonial for the power of
dreams to provide transformational experiences. The
author explains how she learned to immerse herself in
the tantalizing symbolic language of visual metaphors in
order to understand their initial cloaked messages.
Numerous examples of paranormal dreams and synchronistic
events are interwoven into this unfolding narrative in a
way that highlights our interpersonal connection to each
other and to our family of other terrestrials.

"I see your book is not just about conveying certain
information from a higher level about the state of the
earth. It seems also about evoking this higher
consciousness in other people, so that we will start to
feel and know this state of the earth inside ourselves
(our greater bodies and reality) as our reality. If we
knew that the elements of a great conflagration were
brewing in our bodies, we might act to save ourselves."
~ Cecelia Blair
"Given the message of this book: all dreams are
connected, this book really had a profound message for
me. People share themes and changes in life. How Judy
integrates multiple wisdoms and weaves them into the
story: science, astronomy, spirituality reads like a
thriller with more information about the plot on every
page. If you want to engage in your world of dreams,
this book will give you a profound knowledge of the
treasures to be found there."

Based on her dreams, Judy's warnings of what the earth's
population is doing to our environment cannot be
ignored. Sure, man has only been on this planet for a
very small percentage of the earth's existence, but the
amount of dangerous elements man has created and the
rate at which we continue to create these dangers,
leaves us wondering if it is too late. Hopefully, Judy's
warnings will be heeded in time.
You are such a good writer! What a mystic, what a
researcher, what an accomplished human being! Monte must
be beaming. I'm reading it as fast as possible. I'm
really proud to know you. Even if you had only written
down a few dreams and dated them, I would have been
envious and amazed. This is beyond belief!
What Judy Gardiner has experienced and written, is a
reality of the multiple aspects of consciousness that
are open to all of us in varying degrees if we ourselves
are open. Led to snatch onto dreams she wanted to
understand opened her to study scientifically-based
research that yet again rolled into a greater challenge
for more knowledge about what she was dreaming and its
importance to share.

With Lavender, Judy Gardiner shares her
profoundly refined understanding of the dream as a
doorway to the secrets of nature. It is an odyssey into
the soul of a protagonist who finds the key to dream
interpretation. As we watch multiple dream symbols
cohere into biological, geological and spiritual
narratives, Lavender transmits the experience of self
and world as participants in an indivisible unity. We
have much to learn of the wisdom of the dream from this
intricate work by a master dreamer.
~ Melanie Starr Costello, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst
A fascinating account of how precognitive dreams may
extend beyond the fortunes of our own earthly selves,
families or clans. I highly recommend this book to all
those who appreciate dreaming as a source of hidden
truths, formerly on a personal basis but now on a cosmic
scale. Never has this knowledge been more important to
our survival as a species.
~ Sally Rhine Feather, Ph.D., Director of the Rhine
Any reader who enjoys puzzles will love this book, both
the text and the illustrations. This is a thoroughly
enjoyable read and a challenging exercise in recognizing
linkages and fitting the pieces together. It is a
humorous, fanciful, and scintillating adventure peppered
with learned guides from the past. It is an important
cautionary tale about becoming better stewards of the
Earth and its environment. Simply wonderful.
~ Gail Cato, CreateSpace Editor
As we awaken to the many levels of dreaming and our
ability to pierce the veils of consensual reality while
wide awake, we can find ourselves at home in a spacious
NOW that Judy likes to call the "timelessness".
~ Robert Moss, Author and lecturer
A fresh brand of mystery and suspense, not whodunit but
who sent it, marks Gardiner’s riveting tale of divinely
inspired tutors helping shape the planet’s future -
through each of us.
