This isn't one of those books where the author picks a limited topic and then drags it out forever to get enough words to sell it as a book. This book covers a wide area while explaining things very well. Now I have to get some more of his books to see what he hasn't covered. Went through this in one day but didn't get much work done.
It's all hard to believe but an interesting book. assuming his experiences are all true, he states lots of opinions as if they are facts (just like all ghost/demon self proclaimed experts).
Absolutely! I feel that everybody needs to know more about the existence of ghosts and spirits because we can't ALL be crazy, which means they DO exist!
His experiences in dealing with seeing ghosts as I am an enthusiastic watcher of "The Ghost Whisperer."
When he spoke to the "extra" character on the set of "The Ghost Whisperer" about her mother being behind her, following her around the sound stage.
Life and death...which is which?
Great story. I'd love to listen to more books by James Van Praagh.
Say something about yourself!
Yes, I have as well. I liked it.
James' uncanny accuracy.
Yes. I had trouble turning it off many times.
James Van Praagh should have left out things such as the mention of the caliber of restaurants he'd eaten at, The cost of the wine, Champagne ect. Otherwise a good story.
I have read similar books on the subject of spirits that surround us and how they may influence our lives. This one hits on important points that directly pertain to daily living without trying to convince or hard sell the concept but to merely "teach". It helps to have a genuine belief in this kind of thing or at the very least, an open mind to the possibility that ghost do exist and are there to guide and assist. I especially enjoyed the chapter on the different levels of spirit guides and also the chapter on how to protect yourself from the daily negativity and evil that exists in the world around us.
I haven't listened to Lloyd James before, but thoroughly enjoyed his clear, strong voice. It is very easy on the ears.
It's a book you may want to take in short increments as there is a lot to take in and digest. Especially if your desire is to increase your knowledge and skill at becoming aware of the present and the other dimensions that exist around us. This book also takes the time to illustrate many steps in honing your intuitive gifts.
This book is very interesting. It is told in many stories but they are stories you can identify with. I like the way it tells the story of James Van Praagh's life. This book gives you a lot to think about.
I think Lloyd James sounds a little bit like James Van Praagh. I would have loved to hear James Van Praagh tell the story himself.
I just bought another book by James Van Praagh and I hope it is as good.
I felt it was more fiction than non-fiction
Nope - I don't think he is legitimate.
The presenter was ok. It wasn't hard to listen to....just hard to believe.
I think this book should be moved to fiction
Boring; not well written; does not hold your interest; it was an ordeal to listen long enough to made sure it was not getting better. Do not bother.
