A Real Gift -- From The In Between!

Because my husband died in my arms and "came back to chat" (the subject of my own book, "Love From Both Sides"), I felt alone and completely insane. That is, until my next-door neighbor's ex-boyfriend, who was producing a new show called "Ghost Whisperer," and knew Jam...
Because my husband died in my arms and "came back to chat" (the subject of my own book, "Love From Both Sides"), I felt alone and completely insane. That is, until my next-door neighbor's ex-boyfriend, who was producing a new show called "Ghost Whisperer," and knew James Van Praagh and his amazing work, suggested I buy his book. And so I did. And because James's book is well written and clean, it made my own mourning process easier. And it helped me to accept what was happening to me, and that was important, became it made it more believable. I didn't just dismiss it as my own crazy brain acting up, or going haywire. So, if you're reading these words, you're probably reading them because perhaps someone has died, or you've had a similar experience. If that's the case, then maybe you were meant to read them and act on them. Good luck with your own journey... we're in this together, yes?

Life After Death is Real, and this book tells you how and why.

Talking To Heaven is one of the books that started it all. It came before John Edward¿s best selling One Last Time and in fact may have inspired John Edward to write his book. James Van Praagh is a talented medium and psychic. Cher in particular really connected via his talents. This book is different than Crossing Over in that James Van Praagh challenges the church and its fear and guilt based objectives. However, the message is the same. We live on. We survive physical death. There is more. And, we will meet our loved ones again, and again. I work with professional mediums. My name TrChannel is short for Trance Channel. James is the real deal and well worth reading. Metaphysics is more than just life after death of course. James Van Praagh knows this and conveys this in his book Talking to Heaven. A highly recommended read!

    Talking to Heaven review

    Eric Flores 4-2-07 Per.4 Col.C Talking To Heaven Want a book that can give you another view of the deceased? Then Talking to Heaven is your kind of book. It has suspense, mystery, and will question your mind on what will happen when you pass away. In one of the installments on the deceased series. This book proves that James Van Praagh is a master of the deceased story. Talking to Heaven shows the reader that you can still live evan after you die. It really tests the mind of the reader and makes them think about if you can really live after you die. One of the characters is a boy, the writer doesn¿t really say the boys name. The writer describes him as a boy who is interested in the after-life. He has a little group of friends and the writer says some of them. Their names are John, Scott, Kathy, and that¿s it. Other characters are some of the teachers that work at the Catholic school where they go. The setting is in a town, I think it¿s in Nevada but I¿m not that sure. I think the setting is really important t the story because it has the perfect effect on it, like dust going around. The writer mentions that its kind of a quiet city and nothing cool ever happens there. The major conflict is that the little boy is going around investigating on a family that past away. The little boy evan goes inside the house of the family, but they also investigate other past away people as well. I won¿t give away the ending of the story, so you¿re just going to have to read it. The writer has a very good writing style. He gives a lot of foreshadowing, flashbacks, and conversations that make you want to be in the story. He likes to tell the story as if it were a mystery, boy its not. Evan if the story is non-fiction he makes it as if it were real. The meaning of the book is to just believe that there is still life after death. James does a wonderful job on that. Most of his books have the same meaning, like most but nor all have to deal with the after-life. The point of view of this book is 1st person point of view. I think that was the best choice for this kind of book. I also think that if it would have been in 3rd person it would also be good for this book because you can get all the peoples thoughts and not just the main character. The last book I have read by my favorite sport author was much more feeling and energy into what was going to happen if I didn¿t win kind of thing, so I was disappointed about that. After all that my final recommendation is a thumbs up because it really get you thinking about the after-life like I have said. So if your ever interested in that stuff get Talking to Heaven by James Van Praagh.

    Always engaging

    James Van Praagh is definitely one of my favorites, always engaging to the very end. Spitituality is a favorite topic for our book club- so this will be next on the agenda, I'm sure.

    'ACEPTING MY PSYCHIC GIFT'

    Well I have been going on a spiritual Journey. It seems like this book would help me see things clearer. I just finished watching the movie, talking to heaven.

    A good read

    I think James' book shows what a great psychic he is, but it lacks information about what really goes on after you die. When he says spirits are sorry about what they did, now what are they doing now to correct this? They say sorry and send good people to them in life, but shouldn't they also be living and going on in their afterlife?

    Even if you don't believe

    I thought it was a wonderful book. I was kind of skeptical of it when my Aunt gave it to me because I wasn't sure if I believed in the whole idea behind it. I had seen the author on a talk show and was curious, but still wasn't sure if it was worth believing. Well, I won't say if I've changed my mind, but the book definitely gives you things to think about either way.
