Central Theme
A grieving mother believes she has made contact with her departed son, claims anyone can make such contact and explains how she did it so others may as well.

Overview

After Sandy’s son Jason died she could not accept his departure, He was so young and his twin brother likeness was a constant reminder of the missing son. She could not let him go and in her passion she pursued every avenue towards knowing where he was and whether she would see him again. This book is her story.

With millions of Americans saying they believe in communication with the dead and with the rising popularity of ¢â‚¬Ëœexperts’ such as John Edward (host of ¢â‚¬ËœCrossing Over’) and James Van Praagh it is no surprise that the ¢â‚¬Ëœstories’ of the phenomena are now being published. The belief system is highly personal with truth being discerned deep within oneself and any ¢â‚¬Ëœabsolute truths’ such as those offered by religion or ¢â‚¬Ëœsacred, authoritative texts’ are to be rejected as inhibitions against seeking answers wherever you might find it.

Beliefs num
–The dead communicate with the living.
–Most of us fail to discern this because we are too bound up in traditional views of the veil between the living and the dead.
–For Sandy an important step towards communicating with the dead was to reject the Christianity in which she was raised because religion is simply a mechanism to control humans.
–These traditional Christian beliefs are ¢â‚¬Ëœextra baggage.’
–Looking within is the only way you can discover truth (for you).
–You will communicate with the dead if you are relentless in that pursuit.
–Mediums can be very useful in connecting you with the dead.
–The best communication is direct and Sandy has had two such experiences with Jason.
–The spirits of the dead are among us we just don’t see them because we don’t try.

Questions Worth Discussing num
–Do you believe you can communicate with the dead? Should you?
–Do you accept biblical prohibitions against use of mediums and attempts at communicating with dead?
–Is the truth determined by each person’s experience and deep inner beliefs or are there tings that are simply true for all of us?
–What does your faith tradition teach about the afterlife and how does it agree and disagree with Sandy Goodman’s conclusions?

–Professional representative social surveys reveal the kinds of phenomena described in this book happen to large numbers of Americans. They are in fact common and ordinary experiences for many people. While sociology cannot explain them, at least it establishes that the people who encounter such events are sane and sensible folk. This volume puts flesh and blood on the statistical bones.
