Overview

Does life go on beyond the grave? With the recent surge in popularity of topics focused on life after death, Letters from the Afterlife, originally published in 1914 under another title, takes up this age-old question from a unique perspective-that of a man who has undergone "the great change" and has crossed the threshold we call death. Written through the hand of Elsa Barker, an established author in her own right, Letters presents a kind of "astral travelogue" that describes-often eloquently, sometimes humorously-life in the "invisible" world. David Patterson Hatch, a former judge, a writer of books, and a "profound student of philosophy," explains his motivation for writing the letters: "This is a materialistic age. A large percentage of men and women have no real interest in the life beyond the grave. But they will all have to come out here sooner or later, and perhaps a few will find the change easier, the journey less formidable, by reason of what I shall have taught them. Is it not worthwhile?"

    ┬┐Letters From The Afterlife: A Guide To The Other Side┬┐ by Elsa

    “Letters From The Afterlife: A Guide To The Other Side” by Elsa Barker is a channeled book with serious undertones. At the end of the book (pages 269-276), there is information and pictures on both Judge David Patterson Hatch and Elsa Barker (including details on how they became aware of each other). There is an abundance of healing information in this book. For example, pages 108-112 explain why imagination is so powerful and how important it is to the quality of one’s afterlife to forgive oneself and bravely carry over any past mistakes upon physical death with self-compassion (pages 159-160). It is also emphasized that expecting more in both the earth life and afterlife can enrich spiritual growth (page 58). Uplifting details on the Celestial Hierarchy are also featured (pages 186-190).After reading this book, I also now believe that there is a risk of spirits unnecessarily setting themselves up for a life of unintended adversity if a soul reincarnates back on earth in a hurry. I now believe that spirits who take their time in selecting where, when, and with who they reincarnate set themselves up for living out their lives in more favorable circumstances that include the following: loving family members, an abundance of friends, high self-confidence, high intelligence, greater talents and/or awareness of limited gifts, physical beauty, greater financial affluence, and/or birth into families of wealthy socio-economic status. “Letters From the Afterlife” influenced my beliefs that these advantageous situations are more probable for those who shrewdly take time to more thoroughly plan their life circumstances through before reincarnating back to earth (if reincarnation exists).
    On the plus side, this book did help me realize a career that I want to actually pursue, but I wish to avoid sharing due to my feeling of right timing. Additionally, I plan to permanently keep this book because of the helpful information on using imagination to improve life circumstances. “Letters From The Afterlife” by Elsa Barker is good for those who have an open mind on reading about what the afterlife may be.

    Definitely Worth the Read!

    I came across this book quite by accident (if there really is such a thing) and decided to read it. I have just finished it and am going to make sure that it is given as a gift to as many people as I can imagine would learn from these writings. I have always been positive of my immortality and am quite delighted to read that I should not be disappointed upon my 'pass out' to the other side. This is a book that reaches way beyond the boundaries of thought and into the very meat of our souls to let us know that this earthly plane is not our only existence. We definitely go on and experience whatever it is that we wish to on the next realm. Please take the time to read this book and understand that Judge Hatch is only trying to make our transition the easiest possible for those going through it and for those left behind. I don't think you will be disappointed.

    Students of the Law of Attraction, this book is a must read!

    Letters from the Afterlife has not only brought a sense of relief to the core of my being, but additionally offers advice to make the best of your brief time on this material earth. I first read this book with an open mind and the letters are written so eloquently and it's so easy to imagine the places he describes - like a family member describing a past experience in which you share the memory. I enjoyed it so much I talked about it with friends and family. I passed the book along for others to read and after two years, I just got it back tattered, worn and full of highlights and underlines that my fellow readers noted. I am in the process of reading it again and I am getting more out of it this time. With the notations and highlights, there are many messages that jump out, that point to universal laws; Law of attraction, cause and effect(karma), rhythm, and many others where other texts are focused solely on one for attracting what you want in your life, this book tells how it works on either side of the veil with riveting stories. So if you are a student of the Law of Attraction and how spirituality ties so beautifully into it, this book is a must read.
