Five Books for Summer 2013…

I do not have any of these books yet, but I eagerly wait for them to land on my doorstep. The chances of me actually getting through all of these this summer are slim, but as I mentioned in my last post, my “to be read” shelf is getting low. I would like to use this post to also ask for recommendations of books that are similar to the ones below, perhaps a few on spirit communication specifically. 

Anyway, enjoy the list. Perhaps we can do an Oprah style book club together, huh? Ha! We’ll see. 

All book descriptions are from each book’s Amazon page, which can be found by clicking on the cover photos below. 

 

We Don’t Die: A Skeptic’s Discovery of Life After Death

I first heard about this book by Sandra Champlain while reading one of the latest newsletters from The Association TransCommunication (ATransC). As someone who is learning to deal with and understand my skeptic side, I felt this should definitely be on my list. 

If You Realized That You Could Never Die, How Would You Live Your Life?
Every second, 4 human beings are born and every 1.8 seconds, one dies. As natural as death is, dying is the most common fear that we all share. With every loss comes the most painful emotion called grief, which can cause break ups of relationships, depression and even suicide. Over 100 million suffer from grief daily, although it is a subject not often spoken of, until now.
The fear of dying led Sandra Champlain on a 15 year journey to find evidence of the afterlife. Courageously, she now shares her personal story from skeptic to believer, along with proof that our deceased loved ones can still see, hear and communicate with us. Sandra also shares new information on the how our brains function during the grieving process and provides tools that ease pain and saves lives. It is now your time to find out who you REALLY are and discover for yourself that “We Don’t Die”.

Running with the Bulls: The Road to Fresh Kills – A Journey into the Paranormal

This book by Joseph Lani is one that I quickly took note of when it was mentioned in a podcast interview of Mark Phillips, who is the creator and executive producer of the Biography Channel’s My Ghost Story. I’m really excited about it, in fact, it’ll probably be the first book from this list that I read!

Joseph Lani grew up on the south shore of Staten Island (NY), where a happy childhood was shattered by a tragedy that tears his family apart forever.

After trying to start a new life in Florida, Lani returned to New York and soon found himself a member of New York’s Finest. Then his life and the lives of so many others were changed forever on September 11, 2001.

After the initial horrors ended, Lani was assigned to the command center at the Fresh Kills Landfill, whose mission was to sift through the debris of the entire World Trade Center. Under the stress of the job, Lani suffers a massive heart attack and subsequent near death experience. He miraculously recovers to a new life fully enveloped in the spirit world.

In this fast-paced memoir in which we get to ”run with the bulls,” Joseph Lani recounts his many harrowing and humorous experiences on the job. Lani entertains his readers with an insider’s account of a very real world most of us only think we know from television.

 

Messenger Between Worlds: True Stories from a Psychic Medium

I mentioned this book by medium Kristy Robinett in a previous blog. I’m just waiting for it to be released on July 8, 2013. 

Since the age of three, spirits have come to me in the dead of night, telling me of their woes. Kristy Robinett shares the dramatic, touching, and terrifying moments from her extraordinary life as a psychic medium.

This captivating, powerful memoir is filled with unforgettable scenes: spot-on predictions, countless spirit visits at home and school, menacing paranormal activity, rescue from abduction thanks to her loving grandfather in spirit, and Kristy’s first meeting with two spirit guides who become her constant allies. Follow her emotional journey though a difficult childhood, stormy marriages, conflict with faith, job loss, and illness—and the hard-won lessons that opened her heart to true love and acceptance of her unique gift.

 

The Djinn Connection: The Hidden Links Between Djinn, Shadow People, ETs, Nephilim, Archons, Reptilians and Other Entities

I have to be honest about this one. I’m not super excited about this book. The “djinn” is a popular topic with paranormal folks now days, and frankly I don’t get it. As of right now, I put the djinn in the same boat as black eyed kids, fairies, and other mythical creatures that I think sometimes make us in the paranormal world seem crazy, or not serious. But maybe that’s because I haven’t come across a black eyed kid. Maybe I wouldn’t understand the djinn because I never had the opportunity to interview one in an EVP session. So before I criticize it I figure I need to do more homework on it. Plus I think Rosemary Ellen Guiley is spectacular!  

Could a single entity be responsible for a multitude of our paranormal experiences throughout history? Drawing upon her decades of extensive research in all facets of the paranormal, Rosemary Ellen Guiley makes a compelling case that our interactions with spirits, extraterrestrials, shadow figures, ancient aliens, demi-gods and human-creature hybrids all involve the mysterious Djinn. The Djinn are little-known in the West beyond folk tales of genies in lamps and bottles, but they are real and active in our world. They are a race of powerful, masterful shape-shifters who exist in a dimension parallel to ours. Humans have had millennia of intense engagements with the Djinn, who disguise themselves in the forms of many different entities in order to keep themselves and their true motives hidden. Some of their motives are not in our best interests. The Djinn are not the only beings interacting with humans, but their giant shadow falls across every part of our paranormal and entity contact experiences, including bedroom invasions, alien abductions, and genetics manipulators from other worlds. The Djinn are significant force in the destiny of human beings. In The Djinn Connection, Guiley explains what we need to know and how we should respond.

 

The Uninvited: The True Story of the Union Screaming House

Don’t get this one confused with about 852 other books and movies with the same title, this supposed true story is by Steven LaChance. If I remember correctly, this book about the haunting of a home not far from me simply popped up as a recommendation on Amazon. It has some interesting reviews on the Amazon page

What kind of evil lives at the Union Screaming House?

In this true and terrifying firsthand account, Steven LaChance reveals how he and his three children were driven from their Union, Missouri, home by demonic attackers. 

LaChance chronicles how the house’s relentless supernatural predators infest those around them. He consults paranormal investigators, psychics, and priests, but the demonic attacks—screams, growls, putrid odors, invisible shoves, bites, and other physical violations—only grow worse. The entities clearly demonstrate their wrath and power: killing family pets, sexually assaulting individuals, even causing two people to be institutionalized.

The demons’ next target is the current homeowner, Helen. When the entities take possession and urge Helen toward murder and madness, LaChance must engage in a hair-raising battle for her soul.

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2008 by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
