I've first heard of John Edward after a female psychic told me to watch his show. She had just given me an online reading where my best friend who crossed over came through loud and clear. I started watching his show and was very impressed, although I'm sure the shows are edited to show John's best moments. Instead of being a weird, spiritual person I associated with psychics, John Edward seems like "the guy next door." His writing has the essence of his down to earth style. He doesn't try to force the readers to believe, but just relays his experiences with the other side. John does mention that his work is more art than science, proof is in the form of acknowledgments from his clients. What is amazing about John Edward is that he doesn't give generalities but specific, unobvious information told to him by the deceased, which is often confired by the living relatives. In this book, John talks about specific cases he worked on that really affected him on a personal level. It was fascinating to read how small, seemingly trivial actions done by those on earth seemed to have been influenced by those who have crossed over. John admits he doesn't know much about the other side, but gives his insights, which are very much in line with near-death experience accounts, especially the importance of the love we shown here on earth, and that earth is like a "school" for our spiritual beings. From reading of this book, I realize that when we cross over ourselves, the only luggage we bring is our life experiences, feelings, actions and decisions we made and how they affected others. And with that luggage, we have a life-review where we judge ourselves on how we did. John wanted to convey in this book is how love can transcends all obstacles, even death. How are you doing in this great test called life? Great reading and highly recommeded.
I was totally held hostage by this book when I purchased and started to read it. I literally couldn't put it down. The fact that John Edward comes across as an ordinary person makes the experiences and things mentioned in his book more believable. The book talks about how he first realized he had a special ability and the people in his life that have been the most helpful in guiding him along the path of being a psychic medium.
The experiences and happenings that John mention in this book has helped me to heal from the emotions I experienced after losing my Mother a year ago. Also, it has helped to open my eyes and realize that she has been leaving me signs along the way that she is still here with me, but on a different plain.
I have recommended this book to my friends who have lost loved ones in the hopes that they will find comfort in reading the book, as well as to help them to understand and believe that their loved ones are still in their lives.
I can't wait to read all the other books that John has written concerning this subject.
