In the interest of anyone who's not open to what psychics have to say, let me just cut to the chase:

Five Stars to Life on the Other Side.

For those of you with more curiosity... This book blew me away. A tiny bit of backstory: I had never heard of Sylvia Browne until last week, had never seen her on the Montel Williams Show, nor ever heard of her "theories," but I have long believed that certain people come into your life at a certain time for a reason that's not usually understood until you've
Being very interested in the subject of life after death I read this book with an open mind, and found I needed it from the beginning. The author's description of life on the other side seemed quite strange and did not seem to line up with my personal beliefs or with other near death experiences I'd read about. But I gave her the benefit of the doubt because I believed she was honestly describing what she experienced. However, eventually my patience wore thin.

There were some positive aspects of

I read this book during the last few months of my father's life (he died of cancer). I have to say that although I don't agree with ALL of her views, this book helped me TREMENDOUSLY during a time when I might have given up on faith completely. She helped me to not fear my father's impending death, but to embrace it as just another phase of life. I knew that his journey beyond this earth would be a pleasant one, but the imagery Sylvia presents helped me to really envision my father living happil ...more

This book actually changed my life, and I've passed it on to two dozen people. If anyone has questions about the life after life, this book is a must-read. I have no fear of death (because it doesn't exist.)
Started reading this book with much enthusiasm to know about the "life on the other side", just to feel disappointed with the content and the presentation of it. The "facts" given in the book is a very mediocre and any one with extensive reading on the subject would know it.One doesnt need a psychic to tell u these simple facts.. It is more like an autobiography of how she sees the spirits and ghosts, rather than an effort to share some information with the world.For example,even a simple phenom ...more

This is a truly compelling story of accounts from the- beyond or afterlife. The accounts question and contradict many of our religious conventions about heaven and hell. I have no problem approaching accounts of the afterlife with a truly open mind, after-all, there can never be any true eye witness accounts, therefor a high degree of subjectivity exists. We have, however, drip fed information through mediums, and this book truly gives an inspiring and uplifting account of what we may have to lo ...more

Sylvia Browne is a psychic who claims to know what is it like in the afterlife or on the Other Side. Heaven I suppose.

First of all she claims that we are the ones who chart our lives on Earth. Everything from who our family will be and everything that ever happens to us. We have been to Heaven and back to Earth in the form of reincarnation many times and when we go to Heaven we will remember every life we ever lived. And each life has a purpose. Most interesting to me is her vision of what Heav

This is Sylvia Browne's book about what life is like on the “other side,” and it's very, very detailed.

She has done numerous readings for people, and her picture of the other side is based on these readings plus what her contact, Francine, has told her. The information was pretty consistent from what she found the people were saying when she did their readings, and from what Francine was saying.

In chapter 3 she deals with the origin of ghosts. She also comes up with something I have not run into

Este é mais um livro sobre a espiritualidade, que nos ensina sobre o outro lado da vida, o mundo dos espíritos que nos cerca, nos impressiona, nos acalenta ou que por vezes nos aterroriza.
Esta obra orienta-nos sobre as noções básicas do espiritismo, traz definições sobre anjos, guias espirituais e ente-queridos que já partiram. Fala-nos sobre magia, milagres, coincidências, sonhos, viagens astrais e sinergia. Mostra-nos a visão espiritual sobre relacionamentos, família, almas gémeas e filhos. Ap

Sylvia Brown has a unique experience of the life 'beyond' as she has experienced herself, being a psychic, but surely it is just her version of it. She has no way of really knowing what it was, or is she is really experiencing. Quite captivating.

You need to have an open mind when reading Browne's books. Don't criticize it if you've never read it. While some notions seem a bit far-fetched, she does make a lot of sense about a lot of things we cannot answer.

now i know what to expect on the other side when i die. sounds way better than here so i can't wait for my trip home. checked this out @ the library one rainy day and liked it so much i bought myself my own copy.

I believe much of what the author describes is based in reality, however I would have been more comfortable with her allowing others may see things a bit differently. As a long time trance medium I've seen and experienced many of the things she describes with spirit guides, etc, however, when she started in with the angels and the color of there wings, she lost me. She presented it as fact, rather than her interpretation of that realm. There is a difference.

She is positive and constructive in he

Started off really good and then just got silly!!
Although I agree with Sylvia in many ways I find her description of the after life to not match mine... but in many ways it's similar, so I can forgive some decorating differences.

My big issue with Sylvia is that she brushes off the idea of soul mates as completely ridiculous. While I agree, if on the other side you know thousands and if in those thousands there are a few "soul mates" she says the likely hood of your running into them here completely randomly AS your romantic partner might

Shelves: audible, non-fiction, 2013
I'm usually not one to read this type of book, but when audible had it on their sale list and I was desperate for something to listen to, I decided to give it a try. Full disclosure, I am very skeptical of psychics/mediums, etc, but I do find some of the stories of communicating with the dead to be fascinating, so I thought this book might be entertaining. The beginning of the book was rather interesting. The author begins by explaining how she has always been able to see spirits and that she ha ...more

I'm surprised it took me so long to have this book cross my path. It was written over 15 years ago. It is a great place to start when exploring what may happen after death. I appreciated Sylvia Browne's infusion of the information with her own personal experience. The book felt like an intensely interesting conversation with a friend over tea.

I really did enjoy this book, she does make heaven seem for real. The reviews I have seen about her being a fake does make me not want to read anymore of novels. Otherwise this book was very interesting and it only took me 3 days to finish because, it draws you in when you are curious if Heaven is for real.

Secondo la scrittrice Sylvia Browne, l’Aldilà si trova più vicino di quanto pensiamo ed e’ composto da un pianeta molto simile al nostro che si suddivide in sette continenti: in più abbiamo Atlantide e Lemuria. Ogni continente è suddiviso in quattro quadranti.

Nel momento in cui moriamo, arriviamo in uno dei quadranti che corrisponde alla costa occidentale dell’America del nord: arriveremmo sempre li’ qualsiasi sia il nostro luogo di morte.
In questo posto verranno ad accoglierci angeli, spiriti g

Overall it was an interesting book. I really just read it because Wendy kind of made me read it. It paints a fairly idealistic portrayal of what heaven could be like and it would be great if that's what really happens after you die. It's kind of hard to believe that everything in the book is true though. I would mostly recommend it as entertainment value, although I did like that the book suggests that reincarnation is true. The Goodreads description of the book is quite accurate, so I'd recomme ...more

O tema nos faz refletir sobre a Vida e o sentido dela. Traz uma visão do mundo espiritual, da nossa passagem para o "outro lado". Acredito que a vida não é só esta que vivemos, as informações do livro nos dão uma idéia das atividades e da passagem para o "outro lado.

kitap müthiş, ama bu olguya öte dünya yerine, 4. boyut kavramını koyarak okursak, sanırım 2012 de başımıza neler geleceğini de kestirebiliriz.

This book brought me comfort when I lost my uncle whom was like a father to me. I really hope everyone can open there mind to a book like this. If your trying to understand life, this may help. Also remember she explains clearly, take what you like and leave the rest. Some people's minds seem so clouded in negativity that it may not be possible for people to really enjoy.... Hopefully people can be open about her idea of the afterlife and to be honest look at the point she makes about religion. ...more
