When She Discovered That She Could Communicate with Her Dead Brother, a World She Never Imagined Opened Up...

BOOK OF THE YEAR FINALIST, Foreword Reviews: Body, Mind & Spirit

Rebecca Austill-Clausen had no psychic or spiritual experience when she discovered her ability to communicate with her deceased brother. Doubting her sanity, and fearing she would lose the respect and support of her colleagues and her family, she struggled to mesh her spiritual awakening with the practical everyday world. But she knew she had to find a way...

Change Maker was written for:

  • Anyone who has lost a loved one
  • New age explorers of multiple realities of existence
  • Those who want to believe we live for eternity
  • Practitioners of energy healing modalities such as Reiki and meditation
  • Those interested in true after-death communication experiences

Some of the many topics that Change Maker explores include grief and loss, after-death communication, shamanism, crystal energy, automatic writing, spirit guide communication, past lives, self-doubt—even adventures with the fairy realm. It offers tools to help readers successfully communicate with the spirit world in ways that are safe and effective.

In this book you will discover:

  • How someone with no psychic or spiritual experience discovered she could communicate with her deceased brother
  • Suggestions and advice to illuminate the readers’ own spiritual journey
  • Multiple validations that demonstrate the after-life is real and accessible to all
  • Hundreds of related self-discovery books, organizations, and resources organized by chapter that help broaden the reader’s awareness of life

Each chapter of Change Maker includes an original black-and-white illustration by Micki McAllister, and ends with an “Illumination”—guidance, suggestions, encouragement, and inspiration for readers who wish to pursue their own spiritual journey.

About the Author

Rebecca Austill-Clausen, MS is a Reiki Master Teacher, Occupational Therapist, award-winning author, and inspirational speaker. She had no psychic or spiritual experience when she discovered her ability to communicate with her deceased brother. Austill-Clausen struggled with how her spiritual awakening and eventual spiritual transformation could mesh with the practical everyday world but knew she had to find a way to make it happen.

Austill-Clausen kept her spiritual adventures quiet for twenty years while she explored multiple spiritual avenues including after-death communication, automatic writing, meditation, shamanism, Reiki, sound healing, past life regression, crystal energy, and even adventures with the fairy realm. Simultaneously she became a leader in national and state Occupational Therapy activities.

Eventually, after growing her one-person private rehabilitation practice to 375 therapists, servicing 13,000 clients a year, she gained the courage to share her story, sold her business, and now teaches empowering After-Death Communication workshops and Reiki trainings worldwide.

She holds a BFA from West Chester University, a teaching certificate from Moore College of Art and Design, and a master’s in Art Education at Kutztown University.
