Another wonderful book by James Van Praagh. I always enjoy his books and loved him when I met him at his book signing here in El Cajon, San Diego County WalMart. He was shorter then I thought he would be, he signed my book different then everyone elses, he said, "That's funny, I never signed that before". Maybe he put Good Luck instead of Love because he "knew" I was writing my book then. BTW his eyes are a beautiful blue they sparkle with kindness.

I can't believe this came out in 2001 and I am just getting around to reading it. But then again, I need it now which I am sure is why it is in my life at this moment. It was great and I am buying it. Anyone who knows me knows I don't just buy any book. I love my free books from the library but this needs to be in my collection for reference purposes. Awesome...

Very nice practice on psychic phenomena, I have learned so much from this book of James van Praagh.
Karen Waldron
This book was a tough read. It was difficult to get into, and dragged along until about halfway through. As was mentioned in other reviews, there was so much story telling in the beginning, it seemed almost trite at times. Finally when he began actually discussing the subject at hand it became more interesting.

A recent thrift-store find! I'd listened to James on Hay House Radio in the past, and thought he sounded like a delightful spirit! Came across this and read it over a weekend on a whim...or perhaps more accurately-an intuition. Interesting stories about his life & career as a psychic, and VERY useful information about dealing with toxic energy/negative people in life.

It was ok, but I have read other books on the subject that I enjoyed more. After a few of his stories, they all seemed very convenient and/or too perfect to be really believable. As for the practical advice, I mostly skimmed through it.

I enjoyed this one. Van Praagh has always been a straight shooter with his writing so if you believe in psychic mediums, he is a great read. He doesn't try to sell religion or beliefs, he simply tells his story which is a refreshing change!

I can't say I liked this book, I can't say I disliked it either. I was expecting to get more out of it, but it seemed to leave me with more questions than answers. I found the book interesting but as the book progressed, it was becoming harder for me to get bought into.
I like the meditations and excercises he tends to put in the last few chapters of his books, but I just skim through everything else. There are far more interesting books on the subject such as those by Rosemary Altea or Sonia Choquette.

Praagh's books have helped me heal the mourning of several dear friends.

thought the best part was when he was talking about the psychic desolation left over from deforsestation and the felling of sadness

His very natural, easy-going style would lead you to believe that James Van Praagh is chatting with a friend on the telephone, not communicating messages from the grave. James is a survival evidence medium, meaning that he is able to bridge the gap between two planes of existence, that of the living and that of the dead, by providing evidential proof of life after death via detailed messages.
