Primer for a professional paranormal investigators. The author leads through the one of house and personal psychic hitchhikers clearings, commenting on details of her method that were involved. Energy manipulation, visualization and intent based.

I seriously doubt that anyone repeatedly or professionally involved, or even armchair reader of occult and magick, doesn't know most of necessary basic information. To complete picture, there are other books, with quite different philosophy and methods -
Even though I know I'm probably going to get lots of hate mail from fans of this subject, I'm going to give my true opinions anyhow. Books like this generally get high reviews because only people really interested in the subject would even pick it up. I bumped into it while looking thru the non-fiction section of the library and thought it might be mildly entertaining. I was hoping for some crazy 'Ghost Buster' style suggestions like tin foil hats and the like. I was disappointed.

This book has just moved to the top of my to-be-bought-asap list. What a wonderful guidebook! I had known for a while that Michelle Belanger was a good writer (merely from her social media). I was pleasantly surprised to discover through her book that she is an absolutely superb writer. Not only is the book very well written, but also it communicates the needed information clearly and concisely with helpful exercises and interesting sidebars. I am so glad I checked it out and plan on reading mor ...more
I've actually read this book a couple of times. I find that the techniques that Ms Belanger recommends are very clear and well thought out. It's easy to read, and easy to put these methods to use. Not only can the exercises be used for ghost hunters, but they can also be used in every day life. We've all experienced *toxic* people, as well as places, and the methods described in this book can be very useful for those situations as well. I'd definetly recommend this book to anyone!

I picked up this book thinking I was going to get a crash course in ghost hunting, but what I got was a detailed book on how to improve your psychic abilities. When I first started in to the book and realized what it was I admit I was a bit disappointed, however the further I read in the more intrigued I became until I was fully immersed in to the book.

If you are planning on doing any type of paranormal investigation work, Michelle preps the most novice ghosthunter with this book. It is a guide I am very happy to have found and am quite thankful she wrote.
Basic phycic defences and homecleansings are covered in this easy to read book. Definitely worth it for those interested in the occult or ghost hunting.

“Faith is a quiet certainty that there is both a higher purpose to life and a higher power that oversees that purpose. Faith is knowing that we do not have to go it alone during our darkest hours and, even when we feel utterly victimized and weak, there is still something brighter, purer, and more potent than anything we can imagine that cares enough to reach out and offer a shoulder for us to lean upon. The object of faith takes many forms and many names, but the universal truth is faith itself.” 11 likes
