In Handbook to the Afterlife, two seasoned experts with decades of experience working with channeled material describe the stages that spirits go through, focusing on the details that these accounts have in common. Just as life itself has different stages of growth and development, so most accounts of the afterlife are consistent with the authors’ view that dying and rebirth are also continuous processes.
Beginning with the moment of death itself, progressing through different transitional stages, and ending with the return of spirits to the physical plane, authors Pamela Heath and Jon Klimo define the purposes and pitfalls of each stage. They look at the kinds of adjustment problems that occur in each phase, and how spirits can be helped to move forward. Questions of pain and emotional state at the time of death, karma, and reincarnation are sensitively addressed. The book includes practical techniques for opening up communication with those who have passed on to the other side. While of interest to anyone seeking a general overview of the subject, Handbook to the Afterlife is particularly useful for those dealing with spirits who have not moved on, such as ghosts.
““Jon Klimo and Pamela Heath have done it again—produced a book that is so broad in its viewpoints and so deep in its research and narratives that it cannot be compared to any other volume that concerns itself with the afterlife.… They have combined over 200 years of published material on the afterlife and on mediumship with traditions from the world's great religious and spiritual teachings.… You get an overview here that summarizes human thought and feeling, fear and faith, in a style that is utterly fascinating and easy to comprehend. The book speaks clearly to all who question: 'What happens to me after I die?' An exceptional piece of work.””
