Overview


For thirty-five years renowned teacher Echo Bodine has been using her psychic powers to help people heal and get more clarity about the important issues in their lives. Now she presents a clear guide to developing psychic abilities.

In the first part of the book, "What Does It Mean to be Psychic?" Echo shows us that being psychic is a gift of the spirit we all have. Then she helps dispel the fear many people carry about psychics. A lot of this fear comes from the Church, and it’s based, as Echo puts it, on a profound misreading of the Bible. Echo says it best — with prose so simple and clear and inviting it's just like, as one reader put it, sitting down and having a cup of tea with Echo.

    Remarkable-Awesome

    Echo Bodine is a remarkable woman and she is an inspiration. I study paraspychology for a few years and I bielieve, her books should be used for holistic schools. They are so easy going, so easy to understand and I truly believe, that whatever Echo Bodine writes, comes from her heart and soul. Ever since I read the Gift, I have the urge to read one book after another from her. She is truly one of the best teachers and writers.

    Informative

    This book gives you the straight facts without all the drivel found in many similar books. Echo gets right to the point and tells you what you need to know about developing your psychic gifts and how to begin practicing. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in exploring their potential.

    Not What I Expected

    The writing was straight forward, but I was disappointed that most (if not all) of the exercises she describes require two people to do.

    Best Ever!

    This is the BEST book that I have ever read on Psychic developement. It gives great instructions and examples, that are not too lengthy and right to the point. It seems to cover all the topics that you would ask about.

    Great Book!

    Really neat book by a really neat lady!

    Echo Bodine just makes sense. This book just really helps you feel more comfortable regardless where you're coming from and where you're going, and helps us to understand how to tap in to that comfort anytime we need to. Great read!
