Book Description

Nov. 1 2002
We all have questions about our lives, our souls, and loved ones who have passed on. Now we can find the answers.
For the first time, world-renowned spiritual medium and bestselling author James Van Praagh reveals the techniques that anyone can use to contact "the other side." Combining his own experiences with the testimony of others who have been touched by their spirit guides, Van Praagh encourages us to embark on our own journey of discovery, teaching us to
  • recognize and listen to our own inner voices
  • alter our awareness to make contact with the spirits of the departed
  • interpret our dreams as messages from beyond
  • use our inherent psychic gifts to help and heal others.

Most of us go through life without developing the wonderful, natural, God-given abilities inherent in al of us. In Heaven and Earth, James Van Praagh gives us the tools to bring them to life.

Product Description

From Amazon

Celebrity medium James Van Praagh has offered enormous comfort to the bereaved by helping them converse with their deceased loved ones. Rather than hoarding the secrets to his phenomenal success as a clairvoyant, Van Praagh now offers Heaven and Earth--a step-by-step course in developing psychic ability. He shows readers how to heighten each of their senses, not just the sixth one. In another chapter he describes the methods that spirits use to contact us, such as instilling thoughts that seem like "inspirations" (which mean "in spirit," according to Van Praagh). He also teaches readers how to protect themselves from negative entities, such as "psychic vampires." True to his bestselling formula in Talking to Heaven and Reaching to Heaven, Van Praagh uses real-life anecdotes to keep the narrative grounded and compelling. And there's an unexpected bonus: buried within the chapter "Psychic Protection," Van Praagh shares his clairvoyant insight into the assassination of John F. Kennedy. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

rominent clairvoyant Van Praagh (Talking to Heaven) has been on Larry King Live, Oprah and the New York Times bestseller list. His latest book part fragmentary memoir and part how-to guide asserts that everyone is born with six senses; the trick, of course, is to learn how to use each of them. To educate readers toward a higher level of psychic ability, Van Praagh discusses the basic skills involved in mediumship (development of increased awareness, communication with spirit guides) and the worlds that invisible phenomena inhabit (the energy fields that envelop the body, the channels through which spirits make contact). To enhance intuition, he recommends daily meditation, breathing exercises and visualization; for the more difficult task of connecting with the higher vibrations of the spirit world, he suggests group work with like-minded people to help build the requisite psychic energy. But as individuals increase their receptivity to spirit communication, Van Praagh warns that they may become vulnerable to psychic vampires and other harmful astral entities. The auric shield, which is like a "brilliant glass shell" surrounding the human body, is an essential safeguard against these negative forces, and the author provides exercises to maintain and strengthen it. This excellent primer demystifies the work of mediums, and for people who hope to reach out to their deceased loved ones or meet their spirit guides, it offers simple and accessible guidance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and enlightening May 15 2003
By J. Wong
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this book, James Van Praagh gives great insights into his work as a medium. He shares his experiences and also tells us how to make our own connections to the psychic world.
I've read other books on psychic phenomena, and have to say that Van Praagh truly does a masterful job in enlightening the reader on this subject. He teaches how to hone in our psychic sensitivities while giving examples of his personal experiences to give the reader clarity. The stories of his personal experiences range from frightening, to very moving.
The thing I liked most about this book was how he teaches us the dangers of the psychic realm, and how we can protect ourselves. Over and over, Van Praagh gives us insights into his personal experiences that help reinforce the ideas he's conveying.
In addition to psychic protection, he tells us about our sixth sense, aura, chakras, Akashic records, guardian angels and spirit guides. He tells us how he cleanses his own aura and protects himself.
For those who are interested in tapping into their psychic powers, this book is a must read. Even for those who are just interested astral projection will gain useful knowledge about psychic protection to prepare themselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars informative Jan. 9 2007
By mocha
This book came into my hands at the perfect time. In it, JVP provides insights and validations, and promotes understanding especially for those with natural, untrained psychic abilities. Of particular importance to me was the section on psychic protection and the visualizations on strengthening the aura and on grounding.

3.0 out of 5 stars I like this author July 29 2002
By Ellen
I like this author, but this book wasn't his very best. This was a self help book to enhance your psychic ability.
I like to hear more stories about the readings that he does and the stories behind the readings.
I can't wait for his television show!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book for Opening Up April 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book reminds me of Tiffany Snow's Book, "Psychic Gifts in the Christian Life - Tools to Connect" because they both introduce the reader to developing the senses that they have insdie of themselves. I do think that James has the best of intentions, although some of his methods seem difficult and time-consuming. I have been "opening up" now for quite a few years, and there is always something new to learn from everyone. This may not be a great book, but it does deserve a read. The Source of this supernatural connection is basically left up to the reader, or a reference to the "Divine within," whereas Snow's book talks more about God as the connecting source, which I feel more comfortable with. Overall, a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and Inspiring Feb. 26 2003
Once I started reading this book, I found myself quite drawn to it and finished it within a few hours. I found it a very interesting read. Not only does Van Praagh discuss several stories of various clients, but also offers advice on several areas for those of us wishing to develop and expand our psychic abilities. While we all have them, some of us may have more developed abilities than others. However, that doesn't mean we all can't try to develop them the best way we can.
In one chapter he discusses auras, their colors and layers, and "defects." I never had any ideas auras were so complex. He also talks about spirit signals and guides and makes an important point about "living guides," people in our lives who may be friends that are also here to guide us through our life or to guide us part of the way. There's also an excellent chapter about psychic protection, things like "psychic vampires" or other harmful energies that may drain us, causing us to become irritable or depressed or tired. While these symptoms are most definitely NOT always or even some of the time caused by so-called "psychic vampires," it does make you stop and consider whether or not you know people in your life who may be sapping your energy. His chapter called "Miracles Every Day" makes you consider how you can change your life for the better and get rid of unwanted habits or fears. Pointing out that the universe does give you what you ask for, it brings to mind the old saying, "Don't ask too hard for what you want, you just might get it."
There are also sections in the book about meditation exercises, cleansing and strengthening your aura, and protecting yourself from negative thoughts and emotions. Like a fellow reviewer before me, this book has inspired me to continue to further develop my psychic abilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars You, TOO, can have a psychic connection. Dec 30 2002
James Van Praagh is a wonderful author. Reading this book is like having him right here speaking to me as if we were old friends. He downplays his magnificient psychic abilities. He lets us know that the things he does, we can do as well. I read a few of his other books and listened to some of his tapes before reading Heaven and Earth, and felt that with practice, I, too, could get in touch with my SIX senses. I may not be able to perform the activities he does...but who knows??? Great reading -- especially if you want to "get to know yourself."
