Everyone knows "The Ghost whisperer" or maybe not. But if you didn't know James Van Praagh I don't think you'd be viewing this. My fascinations with ghosts led me to purchase this seemingly scripted version of his popular television show. This book discusses the various aspects of life and death. It discusses how spirits regret not living life to the fullest. Not spending more time with loved ones. Not fully reaching their potential. You know, the things in life we all would like to improve upon. But this book does raise a very good point: Don't wait 'til you're dead to tell your loved ones how much you love them! Don't take them for granted! Love is, after all, the strongest force there is. Those are all excellent and valid points.

But the book begins to lose you when it begins to describe extra souls, the multitude of galaxies that we can choose to return to, the different forms of life we can come back as. James Van Praagh claims that earth is not the only choice we have. That we choose to return to this "unevolved planet" because of the opportunities available here. Because we have free will. I did enjoy the astral world. It seems that after we pass, we are delivered to an astral world. A life that is very similar to the life we live now. In this astral world, we are able to experience everything we experienced in life (on earth) and once we become familiar with this astral world, we die again. In this next death, we enter what popular religion calls "heaven"

This book has some very valid points: The hardest parts of life usually deal with family, and through these hardships we are taught compassion, patience, and unconditional love. But this book does border on silliness. And if you don't believe what Mr. Van Praagh is preaching, then you are living in fear (his words, not mine). But just read what James Van Praagh has written in Ghosts Among Us: Uncovering the Truth About the Other Side because a lot of what he's teaching is how to live life in a spiritual way. And that translates to taking responsibility for your thoughts and actions
