About the Author
Read an Excerpt
Since the publication of my first book, Talking to Heaven, in 1997, I have had the good fortune to travel around the world and share my message of life after death with thousands of people. I am still amazed at the number of people who are eager to learn more about psychic phenomena. Although many know the buzzwords (mental telepathy, clairvoyance, aura, and entity), they don't really understand what these terms mean. Many lack personal experience with such things; others experience them but can't identify what they are. Throughout time, shows featuring mediums and, today, movies like The Sixth Sense only intensify our curiosity about the spirit world. People want to make contact with their loved ones and seek validation of their own experiences with the spirits. They want to know that these are real, not figments of their imagination.
This book is intended to help you learn as much as possible about the world of spirit and to decide for yourself what is true or false. By drawing from personal experience, I hope to teach you how to hone your basic psychic abilities and sharpen your sixth sense. I also include testimony from others who have been touched by angels and visited by spirit guides.
More important, I have included exercises that you can practice to expand your own psychic awareness. As you progress, remain flexible and open. Some experiences you may have on your journey may be unusual or upsetting, but as you go, you will learn to understand and handle them. Each person develops in his and her own way, and at his or her own pace. Don't get discouraged when things don't happen right away. Remember: It took me years of trial and error and effort to be where I am today. As you learn to develop your psychic talents, using them will become a way of life.
For years I have been teaching that death is not the end of existence, nor is it something to be feared; there is indeed life beyond this physical world. Earth is only one part of a vast multidimensional universe. Spirit beings from other worlds are around us all the time. These spirits serve the human population in many ways, as teachers, companions, creative inspiration, and protection. It takes courage to look beyond our three-dimensional world and know that something greater exists. The more deeply involved you become with the spirit world, the more your habits and conditioning will change, and the more your life will become focused.
Let this book be your guide to developing your natural psychic gifts, to experiencing spirit contact firsthand, and to empowering yourself to live a better life. It is my desire that everyone experience the profound connection between heaven and earth, and that this book help you do so.
