Book Description

Nov. 11 2004
Dr. Jane Greer, a classically trained therapist, began with the belief that the bond that exists between the living and the dead is not purely a psychological one, but is, in fact, much more dynamic and empowering. In the shattering aftermath of her own mother's death, Dr. Greer learned---and shows us as well---that transcommunication is not simply a "hello from heaven" but a powerful therapeutic tool that is available to any of us. Through this communication, the pain of grieving can be made more bearable, ambivalent relationships can be healed, and a loved one's messages can bring relief and joy.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

According to this comforting New Age primer, death can be the beginning of a beautiful relationship. Indeed, it seems to open up lines of "transcommunication" as never before, Greer says, and messages from beyond the grave come in a multitude of formats, including dreams, friendly animals, rainbows and electrical disturbances. She offers examples, too, of departed loved ones taking a more active role-by counseling the living on life projects, helping them find apartments, even fixing them up with Mr. Right. Greer, a Redbook online sex columnist and author of Gridlock: Finding Courage to Move On in Life, Love and Work, describes herself as a "psychoanalytically trained" therapist, but departs from Freudian orthodoxy by collaborating with a psychic and urging her patients to directly contact their deceased relatives as an integral part of the therapeutic process. Her material is drawn mostly from their case studies, and from her experience with her own late mother, a particularly voluble spirit who manifests herself in the form of rabbits, doves, butterflies, toppled family photos, stopped clocks, malfunctioning radios and serendipitous encounters with the song "La Vie en Rose." Greer offers some practical tips on communicating with the dead to enable readers to bypass mediums and seances; candles and meditation exercises help, but a simple blurted entreaty ("Hi, Mom...Please let me know you're here") often does the trick. She takes a stab at rationalizing everything by reference to relativity, quantum physics, thermodynamics and paranormal research, but grieving survivors may be happy to take it all on faith.

Review

"What a wonderful compilation of stories that shimmer with truth and beauty! Dr. Greer's intimate sharing of her experiences with her mother, coupled with detailed instructions on how to make contact with those we have loved and lost, truly make this a book you can't put down."
--Sinclair Browning, author of Feathers Brush My Heart: True Stories of Mothers Connecting with Their Daughters After Death

"The Afterlife Connection is a lucid description of the survival of consciousness after death and how a deeper understanding of our connection with this transcendent consciousness can help heal and transform our lives."
--Deepak Chopra, author of How to Know God

"Thank you, Dr. Greer, for adding an authoritative--yet wonderfully personal--voice to the body of evidence that there is life and emotional continuity after physical death."
--Raymond Moody, author of Life After Life

"Dr. Greer has written a heartwarming and inspiring book about seemingly miraculous afterlife connections that can be observed by all of us--if we are open--in everyday life. Scientists and laymen alike should read these accounts with wonderment and appreciation."
--Gary E. Schwartz, Ph.D., Director of the Human Energy Systems Laboratory at the University of Arizona and author of The Afterlife Experiments

"Dr. Jane Greer is helping to pioneer and blaze a new trail of understanding regarding the human spirit and experience. By reading this book, one acknowledges that its NEVER too late to say you're sorry, mend relationships, and celebrate love."
--John Edward, host of Crossing Over with John Edward and bestselling author of After Life

5.0 out of 5 stars From Skeptic to Believer Oct. 19 2003
By Susan
Format:Hardcover
For anyone who has ever doubted the notion of afterlife, as I have, Dr. Jane Greer's book is a must-read. After experiencing a series of startling coincidences and powerful, electrifying dreams surrounding the deaths of my mother, aunt and close friend, my interest in the topic was heightened, although I never explored the subject in great detail. I stumbled upon "The Afterlife Connection" through another such coincidence and felt compelled to order a copy. Once I received and began reading it, I was so struck by similar episodes I personally had experienced, there were times I had to actually place the book down I felt so overwhelmed. Upon completing certain chapters, I re-read and highlighted some passages that struck a particularly close chord. Dr. Greer's professional background as a psychologist allows her to view this subject through a scientific approach as well as a more spirtual process. I found each aspect to be equally fascinating and enjoyed Dr. Greer's accounts of her own personal relationship with her mother, both before and after her passing, as well as those she recounts of many of her patients and others with whom she's come in contact who were readily open and willing to share their stories. Many, like me, were initially confirmed non-believers or skeptics, then ultimately albeit perhaps reluctantly, equally confirmed believers. The insights I've gained through these remarkable accounts have allowed me to listen not solely to my head, but also - perhaps more strongly - to, and with, my heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful and Inspiring Book Oct. 20 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I found Jane Greer's book "The Afterlife Connection" to be a beautiful and inspiring book. I suffered a devastating loss within the last couple of years and reading Dr. Greer's book really has helped me come to terms with my loss. Her story, as well as those she came into contact with, filled me with so much hope, that those we loved and lost are watching over us and guiding us through our journey. Many of the stories were really lovely, especially from those who suffered tragic losses at the World Trade Center. I would definitely recommend "The Afterlife Connection" to believers and skeptics alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing and Inspiring! Dec 10 2004
By Donna Gaudette - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Losing someone you love to death is one of the most devastating things one can experience. Is it possible for those who have passed on to communicate with us in normal everyday routines? I always beleived it could be, but after reading this book I am truly amazed at how many signs I missed. From the smell of perfume to a symbol or sign, those that have passed on can and do communicate with you. After reading this book I took the lessons learned and applied them to my recent loss and before I knew it, I was comforted by the thought and sense that the people I have lost are still around me in spirit and in ways that one would never think. I strongly suggest you read this book if you are looking for comfort. It opened my eyes and actually made me 'stop and smell the roses'. I will stop short of saying, it may have saved my life. If I had not read this book, I would not have allowed myself to relax and sense my mom around me. I would not have 'listened' or paid attention to the signs she was given me. I did read this book, and I was seeing the signs. This book is intutive, interesting, therapeutic and honest. You will be amazed and in awe at how much you were missing. Thankyou Jane Greer for your wonderful book and sharing your experiences!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and Inspiring March 17 2005
By John Quinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Dr. Greer has written a tremendous book about the signs people have received from those they loved from the Other Side. It shows you that love never dies, and that beyond this life the ones we love are keeping a sharp eye on us, and if we look closely, we can see the signs they leave for us.

It's beautiful, and I hope those people who have suffered a terrible loss will read it.
