10 Great Afterlife Books Worth Reading

afterlife book

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.

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. ūüôā

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 K√ľbler-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.

Radio Medium Connects Listeners To Deceased On Other Side

Radio Medium Answers Caller Questions On Phone

One of the biggest questions I'm asked is, “can you do readings for people over the phone?”

The answer is a resounding YES!

Deceased Loved Ones Are Not Limited By Distance

Spirit is not limited by physical boundaries. When I speak to someone over the phone, or as you can see here, over the radio, your loved ones are immediately aware and can make their presence known.

Here's a little known secret: psychic medium's do NOT bring your loved ones through. YOU bring your loved ones through.

A psychic medium is just that: the medium. I like to think of myself as a psychic postman. They use me to get their messages through. It's fun. I love what I do.

Many ask for samples of readings, so I thought I would post this recent demo from my in-studio appearance at Newfoundland's top radio station, K-Rock.

Which reading “got to you” in a deep way? Post below, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

The Myth Of ‘Only One Soul Mate’

One of the biggest myths I run across in my travels is the belief that there is only one soul mate for us. This misconception causes a lot of unnecessary grief spiritually.

Soul Mate

Losing a wife/husband/partner is most certainly a shock and tragic to say the least. And it certainly takes considerable time to begin to heal from the passing. And it pays to remember that each of us heal at different speeds.

That said, in my experience as a spiritual advisor, there comes a time when one reaches the point of acceptance and then the loneliness kicks in.

Often, right around this time comes along another feeling: guilt of moving on.

“I'll never find another like my late husband/wife,” or “my wife would never forgive me if I dated anyone,” are just two things I hear clients or attendees of my live events say.

The worst being, “He/she was my soul mate,” with the tone implying that all is now lost.

It's tragic to hear. But I have good news–even if it is hard to hear!

It is a complete and total myth that there will be only one soul mate in your life. Frankly speaking, each of us can literally have several soul mates in life.

The Book Of Life

See, our lives are like books. A good book has multiple chapters, as do our lives. To paraphrase the late great Jim Rohn, there's a reason why they make those fourth grade chairs so small!

“There's a reason why they make those fourth grade chairs so small…”
Jim Rohn

Grief is a process, but we are never expected to live life alone. And just as we once could fit in those fourth grade chairs, we grow and move through new chapters in our lives to the point we can't fit in those chairs again.

A Message From Spirit

When I give demonstrations of spirit communication at live events, I often have loved ones come through to widows/widowers. And you know what the  common theme is? It's the encouragement to move on.

There is no jealousy from loved ones in spirit. They value and love the time that they spent with us on this earthly plane, and for whatever reason they needed to make the transition to spirit. While they needed to leave us physically, they never intended for us to be left lonely.

Ask yourself this: if the roles were reversed and you were in heaven, would you want your loved one to be lonely forever?

Of course you wouldn't.

A Life Lost…

Recently I was giving a reading to a widow of a soldier killed in the Gulf War. She was 21 years old when he passed and told me that she routinely cried herself to sleep at night out of loneliness.

The Gulf War ended in 1991. By holding on to the mistaken belief that her husband was the only soulmate she'd ever have, she's been miserable for… two decades!

Two decades… I thought to myself, two lives have been lost out of this tragedy.

The story is long and sad, but she confessed that many have approached her to date, but she denies any requests.

I asked her, “if you were hit by a car and your husband came back from the war a widower, would you have wanted him to go through the next 60 years alone? Or would you want him to find another soul mate?”

“Of course!” she exclaimed and then paused like a deer in headlights… as it dawned on her that was what he wanted for her!

You Will Never ‘Replace' Your Soul Mate But You Can Find A New One

Listen. You'll never replace your soul mate if they pass. That's not the point. If they were a true soul mate then the passing will be very difficult and painful. That's because of the love you shared.

But you can–and it's strongly encouraged that you should–find another soul mate with whom you can share lessons with.

If someone you love is struggling with moving on, please share this article with them. I welcome your comments below, especially if you have encouraging stories to share.

Please also make sure you recognize the five signs your deceased loved one sends you.

Guides Guide. Loved Ones Love.

When I speak to groups, one of the biggest ah-ha moments they have is the understanding of message “our guides guide and our loved ones love.”

Feeling Your Loved Ones Aren't There? Here's Why

Many people feel that their deceased loved ones have given up on them. They feel they aren't getting help/direction from them.

This is because the role our loved ones have in the afterlife is to simply love and encourage. It is not their role to guide us… that is the role of our spirit guides.

See the difference? Guides Guide Loved Ones Love.

Example: praying to your deceased mother to help you in a situation isn't going to happen. Doing so only causes you unnecessary frustration. Your guides, however, are standing by both ready and willing to help you.

Think of it this way. My nephew is in soccer right now. His coach is his guide. His job is to listen to the direction of the coach and the coach is to help him win. My job is to cheer my nephew on, give him love, encouragement and support. In other words, it is NOT my role to coach him.

Kids Who See Ghosts–A Medium’s Perspective

kids who see ghostsGhost Story:

“My daughter told me that she saw a short bald man standing in the corner of her room and that he was friendly. Later she told me that there was another tall man with a stick who hit a girl and it scared her. Is this all real?”

The question came from a listener on Newfoundland's K-Rock radio show and is a common question I get asked.

Can kids see ghosts?

First, I'd like to change the wording. Ghosts conjure up images of good and evil. Movies like Poltergeist and the terrifying scene in Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark don't do much to help with that (although I loved both movies)!

I prefer the term spirit. So, can children sense spirits?

The answer is yes and here is why: young children don't have the limitations of life and belief systems installed fully. They haven't been “taught” that “ghosts don't exist” so that limitation isn't there.

Our deceased loved ones are most certainly watching over us and I'm absolutely convinced beyond a doubt that they exploit this “opening” to visit young children in particular. After all, young children are new life and it brings joy to spirit they are embarking on a life journey.

Who Are These Spirits?

The spirits will most often be deceased relatives and much of the time they will be grandparents coming through, although not always. When my daughter was quite young, she described both my father and my mother to an absolute ‘t'. Not descriptions of dress, as she knew what they had looked like in photos, but stuff she couldn't have naturally known, such as mannerisms and behaviors.

Can They Be Frightening?

The short answer is yes, although they don't mean to scare or frighten. At least, not intentionally. IF you have a child that is frightened, you can calm them by letting him/her know they are friendly and that they have the power to tell them to stop doing what frightens them.

Can We Banish The Spirits?

Absolutely! But that would be very sad, as their intent is only love and encouragement.

How Can I Tell The Difference Between Spirits And Imaginary Friends

Most kids have imaginary friends, particularly under five years old. I'm not a psychologist, but I did speak to one who informed me that imaginary friends at that age is completely normal and to be expected.

So, what's the difference? Well, imaginary friends tend to be flexible to a situation. When you ask you child about details they'll often pause as they create answers. Frankly, it is quite adorable at times and fun to experience.

But a spirit, like a real person, won't be flexible and the answers will be quite forthcoming. They'll often be able to describe them with terrific accuracy and details without hesitation. As in “the man was standing THERE and was wearing X, Y, and Z.”

Yes, Blair, But What If I'm Scared?

Well, there's nothing to be afraid of, really. In my case, my Mom passed several years before my daughter was born. She had several grandsons, but no granddaughters. She would have loved to have been around for that but it wasn't meant to be. It tickled me pink knowing that death didn't stop her. It brought me comfort knowing that she would visit my daughter.

Be careful that you don't pass YOUR fears along to them. Embrace it, as I have experienced many clients who have had messages brought forth through youngsters from the deceased that have been extremely helpful!

A Child Brings A Welcome Spirit Message

Nancy, a client of mine recently told me her brother's dog had had to be put down due to illness. A brown labrador retriever that was a best buddy to her daughter Lissa. Naturally, the family was quite devastated by the loss.

One morning her daughter came bouncing into the kitchen and informed her, “Mom, Buster is happy now.”

Nancy was busy, smiled at Lissa and both went on about the day.

Later, Nancy was struck by the complete change in attitude in Lissa from utter sadness to being completely okay with it all.

She sat down and chatted with her daughter to discover that her daughter had seen Grandpa the night previous in her room and Buster was with him, happy as can be–no longer in pain or suffering and, she reported getting spoiled by Grandpa!

Embrace these wonderful connections! Got a story to share from your childhood or experience as a parent/grandparent? Share it below! I'd love to hear it, and I'm sure others would too!

Do Pets Go To Heaven?

Do Pets Go To Heaven? What Happens To Our Beloved Pets When They Die?

Good news. I won't keep you in suspense… your beloved pet is now on the other side… yes, they are in heaven!

“My Religion Tells Me Pets Have No Souls, Is This True?”

It's false. I always have–and always will–believe that modern Christian religions are misguided. Much of “modern” Christianity teaches that animals have no soul.

Sorry. But if ‘God' created ‘everything,' then why would he give some entities souls and others not?

Partial Truth

Religion aside, spirit creates souls. Period.

Not every beast has a soul that goes to heaven, however. There are higher level beings and low level beings. Ants, for example, I'm confident don't die and go to heaven to live eternity in bliss.

Smack a mosquito… sorry, it's not going to be going to heaven to live a wonderful eternity.

The truth is, there are specific differentiations with animals. All animals that have compassion to humans have a soul.

A bumblebee? No

A cat…¬†YES!¬†A dog?¬†YES! Our pets do go to heaven.

The bottom line is this: if the animal had an emotional connection with you, then I can assure you.. they are on the other side.

Low Level Reincarnation

I've been told–by spirit–that all low-level beings, such as ants, bees, snakes, spiders, etc., simply automatically reincarnate the very moment of death or shortly thereafter.

My ‘Boy' Comes For Visits…

I had a greyhound dog that I adopted named, Pokie.

Upon adopting him, within 48 hours he became my very best friend in the whole world. His name was Pokie. Well named at the track, as he was, for all intents and purposes, a loser. He never qualified as a racer. He was passed to several adoption homes before I picked him.

Pokie was a good boy. We stuck together like glue. When I got divorced, all I was left with was a laptop, a desk, a table and my boy…

He stayed with me through thick and thin. He was there for me when I cried my brains out at the dissolution of a marriage and a divorce. And I hung with him when he was so sick he nearly died from heat exhaustion one summer. He was there when I met the love of my life–Wendy–and we were there¬†when he breathed his last breath. I cried for days after he passed.

But love never dies. I know he's in a good place, no longer ill. I know he's happy and probably running with his buddies (but still coming in last).

The cool part is that I can still feel him around–often under my desk where he liked it most.

If you had a dog, cat, bird or other animal that had a connection with you, regardless of your religious upbringing, I can assure you it's on the other side: heaven… and will be there when you eventually cross over to meet them.

True Love

Wendy & Blair Wedding DayPresident Ronald Reagan once said that he could be in a room of 100 people and he would feel lonely, but when his wife Nancy walked in the loneliness would vanish. I know what he meant.

May 5th is Cinco De Mayo and a day for celebration in Mexico and the USA. It's also a day of celebration for me. It's my wedding anniversary and it's a wonderful day.

My Wendy is the love of my life. She is, in every way, the embodiment of a perfect wife/friend/lover.

Frankly, I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for the incredible love, support and relentless encouragement to grow. Wendy is a non-stop source of love and inspiration to me.

Many people see me–Blair Robertson–as the famous psychic medium on television, radio and on stage. You read my words here and elsewhere. But quietly, in the background, my Wendy is holding down the fort, booking the planes/trains/automobiles/hotels/events that you see me at.

While I'm on the stage and everything is going smoothly, she's at the back running the show and putting out the fires that nobody ever hears about.

So, I hope you'll forgive me for not talking about you or me today. Instead, I want to publicly say “Happy Anniversary” to the love of my life, my soulmate and my absolute rock… I love you Wendy!

And for all of you, I wish for every single one of you a relationship as wonderful as mine.

Love and light,

Blair Robertson

 

Reincarnation: Your Past Lives And Your Exciting Future

reincarnation past livesDo you believe in reincarnation? Past lives?

Have YOU lived before?

If you've ever experienced deja-vu: that feeling that you've been somewhere before (even though it's your first time there), it's a sure sign that you have lived before.

If you've ever “clicked” with a person–had that feeling that you've known them your entire life–then you've likely met one of your soul mates from a previous lifetime.

Of course, if you've ever had a past-life regression with a skilled hypnotherapist, you'll be able to tap into your past life memories and retrieve amazing amounts of information.

Reincarnation, Past Lives And Karma

We have all lived many past lives. Each incarnation brings with it our past lessons for us to improve on and challenges for us to work through. This is called karma.

Is there such thing as bad karma? It depends if it is incoming or outgoing. If you are having challenges or hurdles in your lifetime, these are karmic lessons. Sometimes these lessons are painful but you chose to experience them in this lifetime to make you life BETTER. As such, there's really no bad karma in that sense.

However, you can create bad karma by doing harmful things to yourself or others. Everything has a price. Every action has a reaction.

Karmic Blocks

Of course, it's fun to learn about your thousands of past lives! When I did past life regressions years ago the stories and details that people brought back were nothing short of astonishing! But the best part about tapping into your past lives is discovering your current life lessons AND blasting karmic blocks. 

Karmic blocks are those pesky things that we experience in our current lifetime and hold us back from being, doing and having as much as we were born to have! Money and career is just one example: no matter how hard you try, no matter how much effort you put in, it feels like you are being held back in some way.

This is a karmic block from your past, and until you reconcile it, it will continue to plague you.

But there's good news: more often than not, when you discover your karmic block and reconcile it, your life will immediately improve for the better. You'll feel better, be at peace and you'll enjoy life more. Not only that, quite often the adjustment is so minor you'll wonder why it took you so long to discover it!

She Broke Her Money Block

One of my clients hired me to help her break through a number of karmic blocks, one of the biggest being a massive money block. See, my client… no matter how hard she tried… how hard she worked or how many hours she worked… money seemingly avoided her like the plague!

To make a long story short, we discovered that in a specific past life she had been poor and had a deep-routed anger and hatred for those who had more than her. Consequently, she was sending out a terrible message to the universe that money was bad and evil. She was doing this without realizing it.

She had decided prior to being born to correct this in this lifetime but did not realize it until our sessions. We had a healing session, helped her clear this block and move forward. As a result, she made a conscience choice to stop ‘hating' people with money.

Instead, she took the attitude that money and wealth was abundant and available to all. Best of all, she adopted the attitude that there is no need to compete, instead to simply create and manifest. Appreciate others, and in so doing, valuing herself more.

Result? She said to me in our last coaching call that she feels like a load has been taken off of her shoulders and the money is starting to roll in in small but significant ways. She added “I cannot believe the impact having such a negative attitude was from keeping me from money.”

Most Karmic Blocks Are Easy To Fix And Tweak

You were born to live a full and awesome life of abundance. You were not sent here to live a life of misery or struggle. Yes, we will have challenges and struggles, but once you grasp the reasoning behind what is going on in YOUR specific life, your life then becomes easier. Happier. More fulfilled.

Most karmic blocks are simple to resolve. In some cases, just acknowledging an issue helps. In other cases, understanding will bring contentment. Some karmic blocks will take work and healing work, of course, but it's important to realize this: when we come into this lifetime the blocks/challenges you face are lessons that you CAN get through!

While they might seem like they are impossible, you can and should embrace them with the knowledge that the faster you can get through them the happier your life will be! Embrace them, don't run from them!

Focus On Your Karmic Lessons

Am I suggesting that you not have fun in discovering your past lives? No, not at all! Discovering your past lives is both fun and fulfilling. What I am saying is just don't stop there… find out your karmic lessons and blocks so that you can start to immediately improve this incarnation! The sooner you do, the better off you'll be as well as all of those connected to you!
