Is Heaven real, accessible and ready to help us discover our life path?


  • Feel like you are driving your life, not the other way around?
  • Tap into the power of heaven?
  • Get on the path to living the purpose and passion for the rest of your life?

That’s exactly what happened to Clifford Michaels, a Wall Street investment advisor, who never believed the “afterlife” existed. Everything changed after a brush with kidney cancer that set him on a reluctant path of spiritual discovery. He first denied, then acknowledged, and finally embraced and interacted with “heavenly” forces he realized want to help all of us find our ideal path in life.

The result? Harnessing Heaven, the book that shows you how to actually tap into the power of Heaven, as part of a dynamic process of self-discovery.

In Harnessing Heaven, you’ll discover:

  • The Seven Principles for Clarifying Your Life’s Purpose
  • Spirituality and a higher plane of guidance, grace and wisdom.
  • The divine teachings we need to know in order to evolve in this life
  • How to determine your purpose and passion for the rest of your life.
  • A crash course in understanding the dynamic reality we live in.
  • How to raise your energy vibration for health and listen to heaven.

Combining teachings from heaven, and down-to-earth, actionable lessons and strategies, Harnessing Heaven and its core “Seven Principles” opens the door to discovering and mapping out your ideal life path—with confidence, conviction and passion!

Harnessing Heaven is a phenomenal book of the type I’ve never read before. Michaels has had such a unique journey and his insights and own experiences are crafted together here in such a way as to enable each of us to benefit from the wisdom he has accumulated. Despite his words not being a direct reflection of a specific religious path, I found as a Christian myself that everything he said rang true with my own beliefs and the teachings I’ve learned from on my own journey. I won’t recap any of the Principles as you can read the synopsis for yourself, all I’ll say is that I found benefit from them all in a way that I thought this book could have been written specifically for me.

A Great Journey to Self-Discovery That Will Inspire You to do the same. Clifford Michaels is a man with a mission to discover the meaning of life and why we are here as well as what happens when we die and whether there is an afterlife or not. He details in this great book of his his days of being a fresh-out-of-college individual who landed a job located on Wall Street in New York City to being a married man with an equally hardworking wife to the time they bought a house in the suburbs just outside of NYC while commuting to work in the city. He tells of how he came to find out about the world of spiritual mediums and how they helped him seek answers to his questions about heaven and everything about it that intrigues him. Michaels’ wish for us the readers of his book is that “after completing it we will have a better understanding of who we are and why we are here and where we fit in the cycle of life. He also hopes that this book will be a valuable tool for us all in inspiring us to make positive changes and contributions that could have a beneficial ripple effect around the world…” By the time Michaels was thirty he had earned a good amount of financial capital that he decided to start his own financial planning firm and use his acquired knowledge to work with individuals and private businesses. In other words, he is a self-made man with a good head on his shoulders who was very diligent in meeting his goals and in taking care of his little family. He was very interested in looking for new ways to prosper more and to feel that all his hard work may well have a meaning that will propel him and his family to elevated levels of happiness, happy with their lives and where life has taken them. He says also that he is not a religious man and does not belong to an established religion but he “hoped that if there was a higher power that is watching over him, it would aid him in being successful.” I found this book to be quite an experience as I myself am a Catholic and believed wholeheartedly that my own happiness comes from my faith but that this man who is not a churchgoer is getting it in life and is on the get-go. It intrigues me because that’s how mysterious life is. I recommend this book to all those who do not belong to any religion but at the same time has faith in a higher being because they will relate to it more than I did. I also think it’s very admirable to know that there are people out there who have concerns with where they are headed to in life without any awareness of such notable religious figures as Jesus Christ, Buddha, or Muhammad who are well-known for their teachings on how to get by in life. It makes me regard Clifford Michaels as an individual who is humble just by his thinking that there must be a higher power out there and that from such comes success and happiness. I must suggest to the non-churchgoer to buy this book because Michaels has a great idea on how to achieve your financial goals that will bring about contentment in your life thus bringing about peace and bliss in your journey as well as those around you witnessing your happiness.

‘Harnessing Heaven’ is Clifford Michaels one man account of his own personal development. After stressful life experiences including cancer, infertility and the 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre prompted the author to look for reason and answers to fundamental questions, he found spiritualism, in the form of group Circles, hosted by a medium. The author avoids inflicting readers with tedious life-affirming nonsense, in favour of a well-balanced selection of anecdotes, quotes, references and teachings that amount to a book that is easy to digest, understand and learn from. Readers don’t have to wade through page after page of miracles or proof of a higher power, just the author’s journey, laid out simply and logically. I say logically even coming from the point of view of a sceptic (as the author claims he was too). An interesting read with much food for thought.

Harnessing Heaven: How One Reluctant Wall-Streeter Tapped the Power of the Hereafter by Clifford Michaels is a first hand account of one man's life and his absolute spiritual transformation. In the early 1980's the author became a successful Wall Street trader, making the requisite amount of money to afford a cushy lifestyle and even moved to the country outside of New York city to escape some of the inherent tension in the city. In particular after living through 9/11 and the aftermath, the author wanted to escape and re-visit life. Life is going rather well, until Michaels' discovers he has kidney cancer, and from there in addition to trying to heal himself physically, he embarks on a spiritual awakening. He explores the writings and works of Edgar Cayce and attends various groups with mediums. These experiences lead him to have an epiphany of sorts, and help him to further explore his own belief system, and try to understand his own perceptions of the hereafter. This is a heartfelt, personal story, that proves to be motivational and spiritual at the same time. This book is a great reminder that we always don't have control over our lives, that life and every day is precious, and to not be afraid of the unknown. Strongly recommend for an enriching and expansive reading experience.

Reviewed by Gisela Dixon for Readers' Favorite Harnessing Heaven: How One Reluctant Wall-Streeter Tapped the Power of Heaven by Clifford Michaels is an autobiographical book about one man’s journey on the path to spirituality. Harnessing Heaven is written more or less in a sequential manner and mainly focuses on Clifford’s path, experiences, and journey to explore questions such as life and death, reincarnation, psychic abilities, mediums, the universe, auras, chakras, and so much more. The book starts off with an introduction to Clifford, a little bit about his childhood, his career as a Wall Street trader, 9/11 World trade center attacks and how they changed him, his battle with cancer, his marriage and children, and of course interspersed throughout his path towards enlightenment and a world of more peace and understanding. Harnessing Heaven: How One Reluctant Wall-Streeter Tapped the Power of Heaven by Clifford Michaels is a good read and I thought the writing felt genuine and from-the-heart. I have read many books on this subject more or less, and this is one of those books that does not feel fake in any way. Instead, it is an honest glimpse into Clifford’s personal journey as he delves into these larger than life questions that have perplexed humanity forever. Harnessing Heaven allows the reader to simply take inspiration from his own story, and to take from it whatever one chooses. I found his experiences with mediums as well as the after-life questions to be interesting and thought-provoking. A good and genuine read!

Reviewed by Kathi Nidd for Readers' Favorite In his non fiction book Harnessing Heaven, Clifford Michaels invites the reader to join him in his own reality and the life events that led to him through an incredible journey of spirituality and healing. Harnessing Heaven begins with Michaels' relatable, privileged and "normal" life: a good education, a first job in the dog-eat-dog world of a 1980s Wall Street, a budding yet conflicted career, falling in love, starting a family, buying a house. But soon, as life has a way of shaking one's stability, Michaels' life took an unexpected turn in a life threatening illness. Like many, events such as these led him to seek and open himself to new experiences and alternative methods of healing, inside and out. As Michaels grew in his life and spirituality, he learned and taught his findings, allowing others to clarify their life's purpose and find their own clear path. While there are many books on spirituality and finding guidance during hard times, this book rises above the rest by the sharing of Michaels' own poignant story and feelings of confusion and doubt. The reader instantly connects with the common ideals of career, family and community, and soon realizes that Michaels is not preaching from a place above, but instead sharing his own relatable journey. This connection grabs the reader as they follow along, uncovering the guidance and lessons as Michaels discovered them himself. The author manages to teach what he has uncovered about his own purpose and provide the reader with seven clear principles for clarifying their own without ever sounding superior or making the goal of enlightenment appear reserved for saints or prophets. Harnessing Heaven is a fast and eye-opening read on the first pass through, and a sound and inspiring guide to refer back to as any reader moves through the challenges of daily life and our struggling world.

Reviewed by Jane Finch for Readers' Favorite Harnessing Heaven by Clifford Michaels also has the sub-title How One Reluctant Wall Streeter Tapped the Power of Heaven, and tells of the personal journey of the author from his comfortable yet unfulfilled life to spiritual awareness and awakening. The story begins with Clifford Michaels' somewhat mundane yet profitable life on Wall Street, his aspirations as a young trainee, his constant feelings of being unfulfilled, and then his encounter with a life-threatening illness that causes him to reexamine everything in his life, to consider what might await him in any after life, and to open his mind to things that he had previously discounted when his life was ‘comfortable.’ The book then shares the author’s findings and discoveries and looks at ways the reader can explore for themselves the benefits of spiritual awareness of mind, body and soul. The author, Clifford Michaels, gives an emotive and detailed account of his life experiences and his journey from non-belief – or a reluctant distant belief – to a life-changing discovery of his inner self, an existence beyond the known, and a personal belief that contributed to his self-healing. The writing flows well and his style is expressive and well described. The book also provides guidance on self-development and there is a wealth of information and resources available at the end. This is a well-written and developed book that is not only a personal account, but also a helpful tool for those searching for answers in a world of turmoil. A book that will make the reader think about life, death, and personal fulfilment, whatever their own religious beliefs may be. An amazing cover which is really eye-catching.

Reviewed by Arya Fomonyuy for Readers' Favorite Harnessing Heaven: How One Reluctant Wall-Streeter Tapped the Power of Heaven by Clifford Michaels is a spiritual and deeply human book that offers a path for anyone to travel to their very core, a book that will move readers to ask the questions they have always feared to ask, the question of life and destiny and meaning. What are we here for? Why am I here, and where do I go from here? As a Wall Street investment advisor, Clifford Michaels had a great life until he was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Then the thought of what happens after this life struck him, and he began the spiritual journey that resulted in the wonderful lessons in this book. He doesn’t just affirm that heaven exists, but goes on to offer seven principles to help anyone harness the power that comes from above, and learn how to allow that power to steer their life towards its purpose. What I feared when I picked up this book was that it could be another preachy read, but no, it turned out to be something else. It turned out to be a powerful reflection on the topics people most dread: life and death. The author asks very pertinent questions, questions that become crucial in our fast-paced world that is rapidly being torn apart by greed and war and other forms of insanity, questions that will help any seeker to find the right answers. But the author’s own path will become one that many will love to travel. This book seems to be a kind of spiritual autobiography, the author’s own path to enlightenment, the journey to himself, the discovery of the power that allowed him to transform his life. Written in clear and beautiful prose, this book is the tool you’ll need to take control of your life, and find and embrace your purpose. Harnessing Heaven: How One Reluctant Wall-Streeter Tapped the Power of Heaven by Clifford Michaels is another 'best book' I have read in a while.
