First I want to say that I am a big fan of Shirley MacLean, as an actor! That scene from "Terms of Endearment" where she is screaming at the nurse
to "GIVE MY DAUGHTER THE SHOT" gets me every time. She is one of the best!
Regarding her beliefs and her books....Well, I have always been interested in the subject of UFO's and other paranormal topics, so when her first
book, "Out On A Limb" came out I was anxious to read it. I remember being extremely disappointed and felt 'dumber' for having read it. And I
actually believe in a lot of the subjects she writes about. It is just that she never met a far out theory or claim that she didn't like, she
embraces every kook known to mankind, i.e. Ramtha (channeling). She also claimed (if I recall correctly) that she spent time in Peru with an alien
who lived in a cave? She believed she had lived multiple lives.....The list is endless.
In the end I almost disregarded the whole of the subject matter (UFO's/Paranormal), because that book made me feel so foolish. I have once again
found my interest in the subject matter but I'm sorry, I cannot take Shirley MacLean's beliefs seriously.
