Overview

When we die our body remains behind on this planet, but where does our real self—soul, spirit, consciousness—go? Can something so vital one minute disappear into nothingness the next? Some say that we cannot know, that nobody has ever come back to tell us. But is this true? Many believe that angelic beings as well as “the dead” can transmit information to us telepathically via gifted human receivers, and many accounts brought through from “the other side” indicate that the universe is teeming with life.
A Wanderer in the Spirit Lands, by Franchezzo, is such a work. It is one of the classic “channeled” books, included in the LIFE ON OTHER WORLDS SERIES, that provide firsthand glimpses of places we are destined to visit or inhabit when our lives on Earth are over. That the descriptions of these places vary with the describer is explained by Franchezzo in this passage:

“Thus in giving a description of this or any other sphere you will naturally be able to tell only what you have seen, and to describe those places to which you were attracted, while another spirit who has beheld a different portion of the same sphere may describe it so very differently that men on earth, who limit all things too much, and measure them by their own standards of probability, will say that since you differ in describing the same sphere you must both be wrong. They forget that Rome is not Genoa, Milan, or Venice, yet these are all in Italy. Lyons is not Paris, yet both are in France—and both will bear certain characteristic features, certain national traits of resemblance. Or to extend the simile still further, New York and Constantinople are both cities upon the planet Earth, yet there is between them and their population so great a difference, so wide a gulf, that it requires that we should look no longer for national characteristics but only for the broad fact that both are inhabited by the human race, differing, however widely, in manners and appearance.”

The main theme of A Wanderer in the Spirit Lands is: What we sow in our earthly life we will reap in the world to come. In his after-death explorations Franchezzo discovers that if our life on earth was tainted with selfishness, greed, ambition, cruelty, pride, and other spiritual poisons we will find ourselves, according to natural law, in a world where like-minded creatures dwell—a literal hell of our own making. He learns that “the seeds of goodness” lie hidden in all mortal beings, but only through self-awareness and enlightenment can we overcome and remove our baser instincts. Franchezzo is himself a repentant “sinner” who has come around after having seen a glimmer of light, first through the love of his earthly partner. In his spiritland wanderings he encounters and attempts to help those still in darkness, that they may earn the right to join him in the “Lands of Light.”

    This is an excellent book for anyone who wonders what happens after life on earth is over. The details of the different spheres is amazing. This is book to ponder slowly. One of the best books I ever read

    This was the first book I read after becoming interested in the concept of a possible afterlife and what it might be like. I never read the Bible but know of the general ideas contained in it, and must say that if there is a God and if he is as all-loving as Christians and other religions make him out to be, then these people must realize the hypocrisy of everlasting hellfire. You will find no hypocrisies in this book, only fair and loving truth, as told through the eyes of Franchezzo. For anyone who has a fear of the unknown I urge you to read this and you may find hope yet.

    wandering the afterlife...

    One of the most powerful books I've ever read. This book did not change any of my beliefs, it only confirmed some of them. Upon death you find yourself in your astral body in the astral plane(s) reaping the rewards of your good deeds done on Earth, and suffering the punishments for your bad deeds done on Earth. Indeed, perfect justice exists in the afterlife. You do reap what you sow. However, hell is not forever, and you can always soar higher in heaven, higher and higher. So practice the golden rule if you want to find yourself in good circumstances in the afterlife.

    Extraordinary experience to relive.

    I read this book and felt like I was there at the same time, If you believe in the afterlife, this book is a great tool to understand what is really important here on earth, and it doesn't matter how many times we read or hear we have to do goodness and such, once our physical self expires, our spirit still carries on, literally our sins as well as our goodness, and only the latter will help us change to better places in spirit lands. If you believe in it.
