As in the case of James Redfield's The Celestine Prophecy, once in a while a book comes along that unexpectedly soars to the bestseller lists simply because it feeds a specific spiritual hunger. Talking to Heaven is one such book. Based on the personal insights and memories of highly acclaimed medium James Van Praagh, Talking to Heaven offers comforting and startling stories about his contact with the deceased. Van Praagh could have used this text to prove that his gifts as a medium are authentic--the story about the deceased teenager who led his parents to his murderer is impressive (the result was a murder conviction)--but instead, Van Praagh offers spiritual and psychological comfort to those grappling with the loss of a loved one. He also helps readers develop their own means of talking to heaven. Even those who aren't aching for contact with the deceased will find Van Praagh's down-to-earth discussions of karma, the afterlife, and spiritual guides fascinating. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Library Journal
Van Praagh, nationally acclaimed medium, boasts the supernatural ability to communicate with the spirits of men, women, and children who have died. Using his rare ability to "talk to heaven," Van Praagh takes the listener along, as he bridges the gap between the physical and spiritual worlds. He provides comfort to those who have lost loved ones and brings back powerful messages from the other side. Many messages are of love that heals the human heart, proving that love is indeed the universal language. Read by Jonathan Marosz, this is an interesting and worthwhile listening experience. Van Praagh's stories touch a chord in all of us. Worth the trip to the pearly gates.

The author captures the reader very well, and my excitement compelled me to finish this book within a few days. I live in the San Diego area, and would invite you to also read the books of three local authors, all of which I have heard at various speaking engagements, and were extremely impressed with, and subsequently bought their books. If you haven't read their books this past year, I would recommend them for your New Year, to help create a new, more powerful and intuitive New You in 2004:
- Deepak Chopra: The Spontaneous Fulfilment of Desire
- Jack Canfield/ Mark Hansen: Chicken Soup for the Soul: Living Your Dreams (Not Local, but excellent, uplifting stories)
- Tiffany Snow: Psychic Gifts in the Christian Life - Tools to Connect
- Marie Jones: Looking for God in All the Wrong Places
The book is meant to be simple, and if you are looking for "evidence" then test out his simple exercises yourself, and definitely pay attention to your surroundings!
I was a bit skeptical when I first read the book the first time, then I decided to take notes, and be open to communication, and took Van Praagh's ideas on communication to task. This has opened a whole new world for me, and it's awesome! Thank you James!
Critics seem to have totally missed the point of this book! It is not a lesson on physics or science, and to apply the terms in the sme way is to totally miss the point... If you are out "looking for evidence" with skepticism,you will find what you are looking for, or what you believe you will find. This is a basic in any metaphysics, and in many religions, "seek and you shall find."
I too saw several shows on television with Mr. Von Praagh... Most students of metaphysics can tell you that if there is a "hostile" (as Janet Mitchell puts it on her book on OBEs)(non-believing) presence around, it definitely makes it not only difficult to do readings such as those he does, but to do other metaphysical tasks, such as astral projection, reading auras, and so on.
I'm not a ... for anyone who calls themselves a psychic at all, but I DO have an open mind.Read more ›
Anyway I stumbled across James Van Pragh's book Talking To Heaven (then again there are no coincidences!) and it immediately gave me comfort and I couldn't put the book down once I'd picked it up. I realised that Angel Indi was fine and well and from reading a lot of the readings that James gave to people which he outlines in his book, I drew so much comfort as the readings he shares with us in his book Talking To Heaven ranges from those who commit suicide, to having lost pets, children, familes, accidents, there was so much comfort in all of the readings as one by one I came to realise that death is just crossing over into the next life, being born into your next one and there is no pain when it happens; and they are met by people within the family and whom love them, and they are taken care of; and they miss us and are waiting to be reunited again with us; and they are with us daily, as much as they can; they are just not in their physical body anymore.
After reading James Van Pragh's Talking To Heaven, I have been watching John Edward's Crossing Over series on tv and that too has been a wealth of comfort. James van Pragh has certainly helped heal that wound in my soul and I am very thankful that he went ahead and wrote and published Talking To Heaven.Read more ›
