Is there life after death?

Do you live after someone's death?

Both of you can - the griever and the deceased.

This book will demonstrate that life is eternal and you can choose life after the death of a loved one.

When I told Jim Zac said, "Tell him I'm saving a place for him." It caused Jim's neck to jerk and his eyes to widen. Zac's response to Jim's last comment before removing his life support made skeptical Jim a believer. He had no doubts in the conversations.

October 1, 2000, 21- year old Zac died and his mother's life catapulted into a life-shattering nightmare. What happened in that first year of grief was not only surprising and unexpected but also shocking, surreal, and healing. Through documented signs and communication, Zac became his mother's strongest supporter in her grief. It was through this changing relationship and as a new life was experienced, life lessons and afterlife agreements were identified, learned and life changed forever.

Healing and grief journeys will be as distinct as individuals. Death does not end connections with our loved ones. You can choose life after the death of a loved one and learn to live differently.

After Life Agreements: A Gift From Beyone Sunday morning, October 1st, 2000, Chris Mulligan received a call that every parent fears. Her son Zac had been in an accident and she needed to get to the hospital as soon as she could. When Chris and her husband Jim reached the hospital, they were told that Zac was on life support and would not make it. The injuries to his skull were so sever he had no chance at all. After they called family to come to the hospital they took Zach off of life support. He fought for forty-six minutes but in the end he lost his fight to live. This book had me crying along with Chris. Even though she believes in reincarnation, her grief process of trying to let go of Zac in this life was profound to say the least. She managed to make it through each day at work. Yet when she left to go home her grief over took her. She could barley function at all. The author leads us through her grieving process, and tries hard to help others who have lost someone. It was through her belief process that she was able to connect with her son Zac. With Zac's help she is able to share with others that our bodies may died, but not our souls. Even though my beliefs are different, through research, I have found that there are millions of people who believe in reincarnation. That each of us has the option of choosing what we want to learn in each life time. Zac told his mom she needed to write about what all she had been through to help others and herself to get on with life. This book I think, can help others who have lost a love one. It is filled with raw emotions and offers hope to others. It is well written and kept my attention span throughout the book. This book is rated G

Afterlife Agreements: A Gift From Beyond by Chris Mulligan, ISBN 978-0-595-42864-9 (paperback), ISBN 978-0-595-87202-2 (e-book). Published by iUniverse, 2021 Pine Lake Road, Suite 100, Lincoln, NE 68512. The book is available from Barnes and Noble, as well as other online and large book stores. Most smaller booksellers can order the book for you, or you can purchase the book yourself through Chris's website http://www.afterlifebooks.com or from the publisher at http://www.iuniverse.com . I chose this book because it deals with topics of interest to me: death, grief and the afterlife. I'm not a masochist, I, like most people have dear ones who have died. Anything which can help me cope with their deaths, deal with the grieving process and know they are happy in an afterlife is welcome to me. It is a search for peace and not morbid curiosity which motivates me. Afterlife Agreements: A Gift From Beyond is by Chris Mulligan, a mother whose twenty-one-year-old son, Zac, was killed in an accident on Sunday, October 1, 2000. In Afterlife Agreements: A Gift From Beyond Chris takes a frank and often painful look at her grieving process as she and her other son, Tyler, adjust to life after the death of her son, Zac. I feel this book is of critical importance for those who are grieving themselves. It doesn't picture grief as a series of "clear-cut" stages, but rather as stages you continue to cycle through even years later. It is honest in the portrayal of recovery as "one step forward and two steps back". It is very frank in representing that while the pain may lessen and life will go on, there is no such thing as a total recovery from the death of a loved one. A good overview of Chris's pain and her steps in her recovery comes in the following passages: "Having Tyler was a Godsend throughout this whole process. Of course he was! There was no doubt that we all arranged it this way! He was quite incredible! We talked about our growth, our changes, and our conversations with Zac. Talking with him I realized that one year ago I could have never, ever imagined being where I was now. This unknown is all part of the grief process. There was no way I could have prepared myself for the magnitude of unbearable pain during the first few months and the recycling I had to endure to move through this grief. I do not think my mind would have been able to comprehend it. This is why, while grief classes can be helpful, they cannot prepare every person for their individual experience of grief. I had to live through those dreadful steps along the way to reach my current state. Moreover, I certainly would not have believed I could reach my present status after experiencing such an intense process. It was difficult to describe now, since sometimes the pain was so excruciating and the depression was so heavy and the other symptoms were so "ever-present" that it was hard to imagine I could ever be anywhere other than where I was at the time that I was there!" Chris has a Masters Degree and 25 years of experience in adoption/social work. Nothing in her experience could prepare her for the death of her 21 year old son, Zac. Chris is now retired and lives in Oregon with her husband, Jim and their two dogs, Chiquita and Joe. She still communicates with Zac regularly.

I was there. I have read the book twice. Mulligan was quite honest and I honor that. I believe she has grown by this experience. Chris was angry from the beginning and I believe she has worked through that. Zac Herigstad has helped so many. I regret that I was not able to share some of my experiences while raising the boys. Zac and I communicate often. I am the happiest Dad walking this earth. I have been blessed with many years of raising two wonderful boys. My mind holds so many wonderful memories. My hope...that some day I will be permitted to share my merories with Mulligan.
