Millions of people have been enthralled -- and had their lives changed -- by James Van Praagh's amazing psychic ability to communicate with other spiritual realms. In his previous books, he has shown us what lies beyond our own visible world, explaining that death is not the end of existence and how communication with the departed can bring solace, hope, and love into our lives.Now in perhaps the most important book he has ever written, Van Praagh helps us to develop our own innate psychic talents. For the last several years he has worked with tens of thousands of people, refining techniques that we can use on our own.Combining his own inspiring experiences with testimony from others who have been touched by their spirit family and guides, Van Praagh encourages us to embark on our own journey of discovery. In "Heaven and Earth: Making the Psychic Connection," the author leads us: To truly see, feel, and listen to our inner voiceTo strengthen our energy field in order to make contact with spiritTo recognize signals from spirit beingsTo acknowledge the actions of angels in our daily lifeTo create a "development circle" to increase our sensitivityTo overcome our fears and limitationsTo protect ourselves from negative or harmful forces Most of us go through life without developing and honing the wonderful, natural, God-given abilities that are inherent in all of us. As Van Praagh once told an interviewer, "I'm not so different from anybody else. Maybe I listen more. We're all like radio stations, sending and receiving signals. TVs, radios, cell phones all transmit waves through the air which we don't see, but we're able to receive a picture, get thesound. It's much the same."We all have burning questions -- about romance, about our departed relatives and pets, about our own prior lives -- and Van Praagh gives us the tools to find the answers.Best of all, spirits can serve as teachers, companions, motivators, and even protectors. We have only to find them, and with "Heaven and Earth," we have the perfect guide.
