Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
When someone close to us dies, the idea that the soul goes on when the body dies brings comfort and hope. In his first book, Talking to Heaven, James Van Praagh wrote that he is certain beyond the shadow of a doubt that the soul does indeed go on after death. How can he be so sure? Van Praagh asserts that he can communicate with the next world, and in Talking to Heaven he recounted many of his exchanges with people who have passed over. These communications, he writes in his new book, Reaching to Heaven, have taught him a great deal about the nature of the immortal soul and its journey through life, death, and rebirth. He explores that journey and offers wisdom on how we can come closer to spiritual enlightenment during our lives through learning to recognize and communicate with the spark of the divine that resides in each of us.

Van Praagh begins Reaching to Heaven by describing the experience of death and the path the immortal soul takes after it departs the body as it has been explained to him by those who have experienced it. He follows this section by recounting sessions in which the living communicate through him with their departed loved ones, sharing the lessons these spirits can teach the living, from moving through the emotional blocks that hold us back in our everyday lives to living a more fulfilling life through conquering guilt and fear and embracing forgiveness and love. He concludes the book with meditations and lessons designed to help us achieve spiritual renewal and pass on these spiritual values to our children.

VanPraagh'suplifting message is that the soul within each of us holds the potential to allow us to live a life of healing, hope, and fulfillment, if we can just learn how to tap it.
