As anyone who knew me in my early twenties can attest...death was not something I feared. I brazenly went forth in life and threw caution to the wind, trusting that a higher power was watching over me. The wisdom I’ve gleaned since has affirmed that guardian angels definitely do exist because I was downright stupid.
But that’s how it is; you don’t fear death or question your own mortality until you have something to live for. It wasn’t until I grew up, got married, and started a family that I began to fear death. My ego became obsessed and fearful of what would happen when my soul left my body. I didn’t want to not wake up next to my husband every day. I was afraid of what would happen when I abandoned my daughter. I was by no means consumed with these thoughts, but they’d randomly pop up in my periphery and leave a pit in my stomach.
I believe that God and my angels put messages and lessons in front of me every day, so when James Van Praagh’s latest book, Adventures of the Soul, kept popping up in my web surfing and when I’d be out shopping, I knew it was for a reason. When Hay House offered me a free copy in exchange for a review I knew it was fate. I’m so glad I followed my higher power’s messages and suggestion because this book has brought so much insight and peace to me about what happens to the soul, and why there’s no need to fear death. VanPraagh believes that the main reason we fear death is because we don’t understand the infinity of our souls, and this book is full of stories about souls passing on, and as Van Praagh said it is, “a manual for anyone who has ever questioned where they come from, why they are here, and where they go after they die.”
Van Praagh’s gifts are truly present in this book, and he’s broached a fearful subject with a gentle grace that has not only brought me a great amount of peace, but dare I say...excitement, for what lies ahead for my soul.
