10 Great Afterlife Books Worth Reading

[featured-image single_newwindow=”false”]

One of my favorite ways to relax is to sit in my backyard with an ice cold beverage and read a book. I purchased a Kindle Paperwhite reader a few months ago and have already read 53 non-fiction books.

I'm regularly asked what my recommended books are regarding the afterlife. If you–or someone you love–has recently lost a loved one you'll find these books tremendously helpful.

In no particular order are books I recommend. Click on the title if you'd like to see more details on Amazon.

Afterlife Books: Blair's Top Ten List

Hello From Heaven by Bill & Judy Guggenheim

The authors distilled 3500 accounts of connections with the other side into 353 After-Death Communications (ADC's). This afterlife book provides an abundant proof that our loved ones can–and do–reach out to us from the other side. Some find the book repetitive, but it's for that exact reason that I recommend everyone read it. 🙂

Life After Life by Dr. Raymond Moody

This is a classic book written in 1975 by a doctor who studied over 100 accounts of people who were declared clinically dead and then were brought back to life.

When my mother was revived after a massive heart attack in the late 1980's, she experienced a peaceful out of body experience of profound peace and tranquility. A friend gave me this classic book, stunned that I had never read it previously.

I confess I had a fear of death until I read this book. It brought me peace and it brought my mother peace as well. Certainly one of the top “must read” afterlife books.

On Death and Dying by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

As a medium and spiritual advisor I find many people suffer needlessly. Either by trying to “rush” the grieving process or ignoring the stages of grief. Dr. Kubler-Ross discovered the now-famous 5-Stages Of Grief and through an understanding of the process, countless people have experienced a sense of relief. I have literally recommended this book THOUSANDS of times. Highly recommended.

Spirit Guides and Angel Guardians by Richard Webster

Richard Webster is a best selling author of 140 books on spiritual matters, and I am fortunate to call him a friend. This is an awesome in-depth book on connecting with your spirit guides and guardian angels. He provides multiple techniques to explore and the focus is on improving your life overall. His writing is like having a chat with a friend and it's a fun and easy read.

Adventures of the Soul by James Van Praagh

I love James Van Praagh and all of his books are awesome. While his first book, Talking To Heaven is still a classic must-read, I found Adventures of the Soul's focus on the soul energy to be very refreshing. My tagline has become “love never dies,” and James talks in great depth that we are all energy and it simply changes. A great section on soul lessons is worth the read itself. Check it out!

Answers About The Afterlife by Bob Olson

This terrific book answers over 150 common questions about the afterlife. But what makes it unique is the author: Bob Olson. Bob was a former skeptic who runs a terrific website called AfterlifeTV.com and has interviewed countless mediums and spiritual experts. While I don't agree with every answer he shares in the book, it's well worth the read for a great overview of the afterlife. A great section on page 141 on how to get a great reading from a genuine psychic, and avoid being scammed.

There's More To Life Than This by Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo

It's no secret I'm a big fan of Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo. The woman cracks me up and has an awesome sense of humor. I'm grateful to her for her success and showing people that we are relatively normal people with weird jobs. This book is a fast and fun read, you can ‘hear' her speaking with her New York accent when you read it… but more importantly Theresa helps the reader understand that our loved ones are still near and want to communicate with us.

How to Heal a Grieving Heart by Doreen Virtue and James Van Praagh

This is a very cool new book. My wife and I gave this to a grieving friend recently and she said it helped her tremendously. What I like about it is that they encourage you to randomly open it and read sections, allowing the Divine to guide you to what you need to hear. Before you discount that as utterly nuts, you've just got to try it. Like all of Virtue's and Van Praagh's books, this one is a winner.

Afterlife: 3 Easy Steps To Connecting And Communicating With Your Deceased Loved Ones by Blair Robertson

Yes. One of my own afterlife books. Afterlife is designed to show you that your loved ones have not died, but live on. It shows you how to connect with your loved ones with three easy techniques. Also contains a popular section on understanding exactly what are genuine signs from the other side vs. coincidences. No fluff, no woo-woo. Just pick a technique and start connecting with the other side, even how to T.A.L.K. with your loved ones. Modesty aside, this is an absolute go-to afterlife book if you want to connect with deceased loved ones.

Spirit Guides: 3 Easy Steps To Connecting And Communicating With Your Spirit Helpers by Blair Robertson

You have spirit guides and they are there to help you live your life to the fullest. They are also instrumental in helping you connect with your loved ones on the other side. Have you heard the expression, “your conscious is your guide?” Of course. Well THAT, my friend, is proof you have spirit guides. Discover how to connect and benefit from their guidance and help.

    I’m desperate to “connect” with my deceased husband. It’s 3 years that he left me and I still feel so very, very, alone – I am severely depressed with my life without him. My children live – 1 in Australia, 1 in Indiana (math professor). I also have a son, a medical doctor, who hasn’t talked to us in ?15 years (long story) – he’s only 35 min. away. He has two children (my grandchildren) I have never seen. Ipray daily that somehow he will be back in my life and make it (my life) worth living. Right now I do not see a purpose for being here. My closest friends have also died and though I have a couple of “new” friends, it’s not the same. I somehow have to learn to “adjust” to my life, or ——–? Getting up each morning is extremely so emotionally painful – no husband, no children and no relatives. To not have “family”? The worst – unbearable!! I am going to check out a couple of these books and see if they can help me. Thank you and if you have any suggestions, I would most certainly appreciate them. (Barbara Ann Dabrowski)

      I just read your letter you sent in August. I believe your husband is always with you by your side everyday. Look for the signs or ask him for them. A familiar smell, quote, something only you and him knew. It may help to relieve some anxiety knowing he is watching over you. It is so sad that your son and family have not contacted you! I will pray along with you that he makes ammends. You are on the right path in reading spiritual books.( I always like to read them too.) I recommend a book called “The Secret”. They also have a DVD. It teaches you to think positive thoughts everyday instead of negative. It takes a while to learn, but once you redirect your thoughts you will have the life you want! It really helped me! I hope this help you to feel better each day….I will pray for you!! Liz

    I would like to recommend a beautiful book “My Loved One Shines On! A Gift From Beyond”. It is an amazing poem given to me by my 6-year-old grandson just 5 days after he passed. As I sat down to write his eulogy, I received these words telling me that he was with me, sending me signs and love. It gave me a tremendous amount of hope and I now recognize the signs. I matched his words to some incredible photographs of mine of animals and nature. This book is very beneficial to people of all ages to help them feel their loved ones. Blair, if you contact me I would be glad to send you a copy. Thank you, Disa

    I’d suggest ‘What dreams may come’ as well
