From Library Journal
Moody ( Life After Life , Mockingbird Bks., 1981) continues his pioneering studies on death and the afterlife in this fascinating book, making a cogent and persuasive argument for the ability to contact the deceased. Moody describes his experiments with the ancient technique of mirror gazing to induce visions of the dead. Many of the 300 subjects with whom he has experimented had surprisingly real encounters with deceased friends and loved ones while using this technique. Moody seeks to elevate the use of mirror gazing to a respectable level and demonstrates its potential as a therapeutic tool to heal grief and promote self-discovery. He challenges the mind-set of traditional psychologists and doctors and shows the need for open-mindedness in studying the realms of consciousness. This well-written book is likely to be controversial but is sure to be popular in public libraries.

After covering The Nature of Visions in Chapter I, Moody gives a quick and informative review of not only the Greek's use of their underground psychomantiums in Chapter II, Gazing Through History, he also delightfully touches on other gazing forefathers such as the Tungus shamans in Siberia with their copper mirrors, the Malagasy of Madagascar, the Pawnee Indians of North America, the Africans of Fez, and the Nkomis tribe of Cap Lopez to name a few.
After grounding the reader in the history of gazing, Moody shares his own experience in selecting property and adapting a gristmill in Alabama into his own therapeutic psychomantium. He relays personal experiences as well as those of his visitors/patients and left this reader with the impression that the use of a psychomantium, wisely done and well directed, could easily lead to lessening of grief and an increase of spiritual insight. Thank you, Dr. Moody.
Dr. Moody wrote this book with the same careful approach, and after extensive research into this matter, as he wrote 'Life After Life'. The fact that some readers feel turned off by the use of mirrors does not necessarily speak against Dr. Moody, as there were many famous people in history who used the same techniques. Discrediting Dr. Moody more or less only means to blame the messenger for the news.
I came to read these books after I had lost my beloved wife to cancer. Since there were so many lose ends and since I wasn't with her at the time of her death, I really got sick of grief and of blaming myself for leaving her alone during her final hour. My doctor helped my body and my mind by prescribing antidepressants, and these books eventually cured my soul. I needed to have some 'proof' that my wife was not gone forever, and I desperately wanted to contact her to clear up the misunderstandings at her final hour.
George Anderson's conversations with the other side in 'We Don't Die' and Dr. Moody's 'Life After Life' were as convincing as can be that there actually is life after death. My next step then was to contact my late wife.
Whether someone actually wants to communicate with a departed loved-one, or whether someone reads this book to heal his soul, it actually makes no difference. After I was done reading, I felt that there was no more need to contact my late wife. Dr.Read more ›
