James Van Praagh is a nationally recognized medium, a frequent guest on television shows who has a two-year waiting list for personal appointments. But now he sets forth on the page his unique insights into the world beyond.Van Praagh?s ability to bridge the gap between the physical and spiritual worlds was something he came to terms with slowly. By the time he reached his twenties he finally accepted the fact that he could provide proof of life after death by relaying specific messages containing names, places, and events known only to the people who sought him out?and to the spirits being contacted.He recounts here his experiences in helping grieving people come to terms with the loss of a loved one. The reader shares in many personal and profound stories, such as the devastated mother who finds reason to live after hearing the sweet message from her courageous little girl who had wasted away from AIDS. Or the son, filled with heartfelt sadness, who begs?from beyond?for his mother's forgiveness because he committed suicide.Van Praagh also offers readers means for recognizing and dealing with the harrowing pain of grief in a healthy manner, as well as showing them how they, too, can contact the spirit world and recognize ?spirit signs? that a loved one is trying to attract their attention.Inspiring, moving, and reassuring, Talking to Heaven provides a connection to a spiritual world for which millions hunger?through the insight and wisdom of an extraordinary man.
