After reading the first half of this book I was instantly transformed into a calmer and more grounded person.  I recommend it to all.  I have always had fears of death after losing my parents at the ages of 8 & 13.  I needed to know that death was a peaceful process and that ultimately we would find comfort in the after-life.  To know that my physical body is just that,  a physical front to the spirit within allowed me to be me.  My internal self is aligned with my soul.  I live every day happy  and grateful ready to transition when my time has come.  I do find myself putting my loved ones first & my affairs in order.

CONVERSATIONS WITH JERRY AND OTHER PEOPLE I THOUGHT WERE DEAD is a title that makes just about anyone pick up this book from the shelves, wondering if it is a mystery or a work of a mad mind or a gimmick. It is none of these. In a very comfortably paced manner author Irene Kendig, a 'soul-centered coach' in Spiritual Psychology, shares interviews with departed people, people who have 'died' - or to use the terms Kendig prefers, have transitioned. With the aid of a medium Kendrig has conversations with bodies who have crosses into the next realm of being, becoming one with the universe and unrestricted by the physicality of their previous earthly life. For some 'self-help' authors this platform could be sensationalized, offering peeks at the next life in a rather torrid manner that might just flirt with absurdity. Not Kendig. These conversations are about how it feels to 'transition' and how the people with whom she communicates through the medium share, yes, the changes that occur as the physical body becomes a spirit, but far more importantly is the vantage of looking at the world from another realm. These people talk to Kendig about the enormity of love and the fact that every thing on the planet is connected, that transitioning into the next stage of being is joyously whole and at peace and enriching. The messages here are encouraging to say the least: she even communicates with a suicide victim who gives particularly wise information about the process of dying/transitioning and the lack of guilt that supports him in the next life. This is a book that encourages the reader to look beyond the expected to explore the endless possibilities that extend beyond this rather confining life on earth. It is rich in thoughts and wisdom and makes the concept of 'dying' (read 'transitioning') a process not only to not fear but to anticipate. Grady Harp
