This is the 2nd Edgar Cayce book I've listened to. He sounds like a fascinating man. Unfortunately, Mr. Cayce passed on before I was born. I wish I could have met him in person.. We hear a lot these days from New Agers saying basically the same things Mr. Cayce said 60 years ago. I've read a few other books about the Akashic Records, but found this book to be the most informative, and useful, of all I've read.
Very enjoyable. The last hour of the program is meditations (and very good ones at that).. If you are on a spiritual journey and wonder about things like the Akashic Records, Reincarnation, etc., you'll get a lot out of this book.
Talking to Heaven (by James) was the first book I read about the other side.. That was in the 90's and since then I've read and listened to many of his books, including this one. It's narrated by someone other than James, but still a very good listen.. His books never disappoint.
Fascinating stories of his communication with the other side.
I enjoyed listening to this book. Rebecca has a very pleasant voice and she gives a lot of good info in this book. Have to admit, I've heard many of her ideas from other writers, but it's still a very interesting book. If you are new to trying to connect to your guides, this would be a great book to start with.
In this moving autobiographical account, Dr Alexander chronicles an astonishing experience that transformed him from a hard-core materialist, believing (or rather assuming) that all thought and consciousness was solely a function of brain activity, into a crusader for an understanding of consciousness transcending our physical being. From a scientific perspective, Dr. Alexander's account is probably the most credible we have had yet--he is an experienced neuro-surgeon and it is at considerable professional risk that he has gone public with his account. He goes to some lengths to consider possible brain related sources for his experience and ultimately rejects them all based on his careful examination of his medical records kept during the course of his illness in which his higher brain functions were completely shut down.
Whether one agrees with his conclusions as to the ultimate significance of his experience, those who dismiss any such account as necessarily being the product of a distressed brain would do well to at least study his case. Unfortunately, when I have recommended this book to such individuals, once they know its premise they reject reading it out-of-hand. Indeed, Dr. Alexander confesses that this would have been his own reaction prior to his experience--hence his determination to reach out to those in the medical and scientific communities in the hope that they will take such experiences more seriously.
This book is written for the general audience and thus may be somewhat lacking in the gravitas necessary to make any impression on those communities. Still, perhaps none of us should be too confident that our understanding of the world--or even our way of understanding it (such as through the scientific method)--is fool-proof when it comes to understanding ultimate reality.
