Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
As human beings, we are and always have been curious. At one point or another, most of us have asked ourselves and others the following questions: What happens to us after we die? Why are we here? How can we live a good, fulfilling life? Will we ever meet our soul mate?

There have been many teachers who have shed light on these questions. You may have felt an affinity with one particular teacher or with several. James Van Praagh has joined the ranks as one of our modern guides, and in Heaven and Earth you will find further insight as he shares the story and process of how he opened up to and developed his own psychic powers. And here's the best part: He shows you how you can, too!

Through his years of ardent study, Van Praagh has developed a series of time-tested exercises to help you connect with the realm of the spirit. In this book, you will learn various meditation techniques that will heighten your sensory awareness; help you become more focused; energize your mind, body, and spirit; and connect you with your spirit guides.

And if the proof is in the pudding, then you'll find many real-life examples here of people who turned their lives around when they developed their psychic awareness. One woman finally found the strength to leave her abusive husband and fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming a nurse; one mother was able to make peace with the tragic death of her teenage daughter; and one man overcame drug addiction, turned his life to helping others, and met and married the woman of his dreams. And these are just a few examples of the countless stories he has to share.

So, you see, you too can not only change your life but also make the world a better place, when you connect with the eternal energy of love and spirit. Van Praagh writes, "Ordinary people are transforming the world without even knowing it. By their kindness, positive thoughts, uplifting energy and love, they are literally changing the consciousness of the world. It is my desire that you also become a transformer." (Jennifer Forman)

Publishers Weekly
Prominent clairvoyant Van Praagh (Talking to Heaven) has been on Larry King Live, Oprah and the New York Times bestseller list. His latest book part fragmentary memoir and part how-to guide asserts that everyone is born with six senses; the trick, of course, is to learn how to use each of them. To educate readers toward a higher level of psychic ability, Van Praagh discusses the basic skills involved in mediumship (development of increased awareness, communication with spirit guides) and the worlds that invisible phenomena inhabit (the energy fields that envelop the body, the channels through which spirits make contact). To enhance intuition, he recommends daily meditation, breathing exercises and visualization; for the more difficult task of connecting with the higher vibrations of the spirit world, he suggests group work with like-minded people to help build the requisite psychic energy. But as individuals increase their receptivity to spirit communication, Van Praagh warns that they may become vulnerable to psychic vampires and other harmful astral entities. The auric shield, which is like a "brilliant glass shell" surrounding the human body, is an essential safeguard against these negative forces, and the author provides exercises to maintain and strengthen it. This excellent primer demystifies the work of mediums, and for people who hope to reach out to their deceased loved ones or meet their spirit guides, it offers simple and accessible guidance. (Nov.)

Read an Excerpt

Preface

Since the publication of my first book, Talking to Heaven, in 1997, I have had the good fortune to travel around the world and share my message of life after death with thousands of people. I am still amazed at the number of people who are eager to learn more about psychic phenomena. Although many know the buzzwords (mental telepathy, clairvoyance, aura, and entity), they don't really understand what these terms mean. Many lack personal experience with such things; others experience them but can't identify what they are. Throughout time, shows featuring mediums and, today, movies like The Sixth Sense only intensify our curiosity about the spirit world. People want to make contact with their loved ones and seek validation of their own experiences with the spirits. They want to know that these are real, not figments of their imagination.

This book is intended to help you learn as much as possible about the world of spirit and to decide for yourself what is true or false. By drawing from personal experience, I hope to teach you how to hone your basic psychic abilities and sharpen your sixth sense. I also include testimony from others who have been touched by angels and visited by spirit guides.

More important, I have included exercises that you can practice to expand your own psychic awareness. As you progress, remain flexible and open. Some experiences you may have on your journey may be unusual or upsetting, but as you go, you will learn to understand and handle them. Each person develops in his and her own way, and at his or her own pace. Don't get discouraged when things don't happen right away. Remember: It took me years of trial and error and effort to be where I am today. As you learn to develop your psychic talents, using them will become a way of life.

For years I have been teaching that death is not the end of existence, nor is it something to be feared; there is indeed life beyond this physical world. Earth is only one part of a vast multidimensional universe. Spirit beings from other worlds are around us all the time. These spirits serve the human population in many ways, as teachers, companions, creative inspiration, and protection. It takes courage to look beyond our three-dimensional world and know that something greater exists. The more deeply involved you become with the spirit world, the more your habits and conditioning will change, and the more your life will become focused.

Let this book be your guide to developing your natural psychic gifts, to experiencing spirit contact firsthand, and to empowering yourself to live a better life. It is my desire that everyone experience the profound connection between heaven and earth, and that this book help you do so.

    OPENED THE DOORS FOR ME

    This book was given to me by one of my friend. The book opened all the doors for me. It made me understand so many things that were happening in my life. Because of this book I have gained a better understanding of spirtuality. Today I can see the Auras and can communicate and feel things around me. Thanks to James Van parragh.

    Enlightening

    I have meditated and worked on communication with my spirit guides for many years, but this book gave me several tools to work with that I didn't have before. I have been practicing some of these techniques for a short time and have had some success using them.
