    Great Book

    I was reading this book when my mother passed away. It helped me so much to know that there really IS a heaven, and that I would see her again someday. Don't wait until you in my situation to read it, though.

    Good book that will make you think.

    During the last stages of his long illness, my father began to share things he was "seeing". He also would tell us things that were happening that he couldn't possibly know. After my dad died, I began to read books about the afterlife. This one is one of the best, as so many of the stories parallel what we first-hand experienced ourselves.

    No longer afraid of death

    I aleays feared death, I thought when you died your world was forever darkness. Now I know there is real proof heaven exists. Believers in God go to heaven. Nonbelievers go to hell.

    Biased

    Some good information. Unfortunately, a constant need to refer to christian faith. One would hope that these experiences are taken for what they are without the veil of a specific religion. This is an opportunity to go beyond any religion...

    Enlightening Read!

    It's like talking to a hundred people about their paranormal experiences and then reflecting on your own. In many ways the stories can give us comfort in knowing we have been given life beyond this, while also reminding us that the darkness of our souls need redemption here and now.

    Lightnings Journey......Part 2

    The silence of the wood around him was deafening. Every step was heard. Lightning followed the clan cats, the tom occasionally nipping at him to speed up. Soon he could scent several cats. Lightnongs fur bristled and he looked aound with unease. The ginger looked back at him, sympathy hining in jer eyes. "We're almost there. I'm Ambermoon by the way." Lightning looks up, startled slightly by the kindness Ambermoon was showing him. "Lightning." He says in reply. A sml hiss sounds from nearby. "You brought a rouge to our camp!" A dark gray cat jumps down from a tree. Lightning steps back. Ambermoon pads over to him. "He was an intruder and is being taken to froststar. You should know the rules by now shadefury." Shadefury hisses softly. "Fine." He glances at lightning with a cold glare then there is a sudden flash of anger and recognition but he covers it quickly. Lightning looks at him puzzled then thinks he just imagined it. The scents kept getting stronger. They entered a clearingin which there were several dens. A small kit looked at the cats and squeaked with fright at the sight of Lightning. Lightning loiked around, his pelt squrming with unease. "Fetch froststar!" Shadefury calls to a blueish she cat. They see Lightning and run off immediatly. After a moment a silvery she cat pads in. Lightning looks over at her and could feel every pair of eyes watching him. Friststar looks at ambermoon. "Who is this?" Ambermoon glances at lightning. "This is lightning. We found him within our territory" Froststar gives a slight snarl. "Was anyone else with him?" Lightning stands then. "My two friends who were chased here by a fox." Froststar turns to him. "They are still there, their spirits now gone. But your warriors had me leave them to stay as fox food!" Froststar blinks. "The fox is still alive?" Lightning lts out an agitated hiss. "Foxes live in pack. The first is gone but others will still come!" Friststar narrows her eyes. "Send out a patrol!" She says to shadefury then beckons to lightning. "Follow me." He blinks, confused, but follows. They push through some vines into a den. "By all means you should been killed." Froststar says. "But my clan is low on members, we cannot afford to start fights. So tell me, what will you do when you leave?" Lightning looks at her. "I can go back to my den out of your borders. Live alone." Froststar laughs. "You dont strike me as a loner. Actually, i'm quite impressed. You ran over our borders just to try and save your friends. That is wh i am going to offer you something that few get offered. I do hope you choose wisely." Lightning looks confused and curious. "Would you like to join us as a warrior of lightclan?" Lightning lets out a startled mew. "Join a clan?" He looks at her incredulously. "The very cats i was meant to aviod?!" Friststar looks at him kindly. "You would be well cared for! Everyobe would accept you in a matter of time!" Lightning shakes his head. "You only want me because you're low on members. I don't blame you." Froststar keeps trying. "I'm sure you would make a great warrior." Then she shakes her head. "I'm sorry. I shouldn't push. I guess i'm just a little desperate. You are free to go." She says with a sigh. Lightning feels a small prick of guilt. "Couls i posibly stay just for tonight? I mean, get to know the clan, see if its all right." Froststar looks up hopefully. "Of course! And im sorry for how i acted. I'm not usually like that." Lightning exits, exausted. He sleeps quickly.
