I wish I had've known before I bought the other 2 John Edward Psychic Development audiobooks that this one encompasses them all and has extra on doing psychic readings etc. Then I could've simply bought this book and not wasted my time going through each chapter listening to him and thinking 'I've heard all this already'. So on the whole, this book is fantastic. It covers everything you need to know when embarking on psychic development. I love his no crap attitude - you either listen to his advice or you don't, it's no skin off his nose. In this book he covers meditation, meeting your guides, angels, psychic protection, getting started on your psychic journey, doing readings, and most importantly the responsibilities and power you hold and you must be aware of when embarking on this work.
I wish I had've known all this before. Because the description doesn't tell you this is the only reason I've given it 4/5 and not 5/5.
"Excellent Psychic Development Audio Book"
I've taken several Psychic Development Classes and this is an excellent alternative and/or additional practice to going to a seminar. It has very good meditations a beginner to intermediate can use. I like going to actual classes, yes, but an audio book with lots of excellent exercises is great because it can be played over and over again.
John Edwards also covers numerology, scrying, psychometry, tarot cards etc. This audio book is packed with practical, invaluable information.
"What A Wonderful Book"
For years I have read almost anything and everything regarding spirituality and the meta-physical realm. This is one of the two best books I have ever encountered. This takes you on a journey into the meta-physical. John uses humor and clear examples to get the idea across to the reader (and/or listener). He first explains the ideas and points of each section and then gives you exercises and meditations to implement and practice each of these. I have been able with this book to boost my own psychic abilities and use these gifts to help others. I just say a special thank you to John for sharing his gifts and lessons with us.
"Great Information, Could Have Been Better"
John Edwards spends a lot of time giving listeners a lot of great information along with funny anecdotes, suggestions, recommendations, and brief overviews of many different psychic modalities. In this, he was very very good and I thoroghly enjoyed it! What I did not enjoy, what kept me from giving 5 stars was the quality of the audio (I heard him turning pages throughout as well as someone speaking in the background) and his lightening speed as he led the listener through guided meditations. John, meditations are supposed to be relaxed, the person should feel softly led from visualization to visualization. I felt like I was being pulled out of each scenario before I could grasp it, like I had been given too much caffeine.
Had the audio quality been better, less talking in the background (this wasn't a speech, it was an audiobook) and slower guided meditations, it would have garnered 5 stars from me.
As for Developing my own Psychic Powers...don't expect miracles. The audiobook gives some good pointers, suggestions, and had the guided meditations been better perhaps yes. I found that taking his original suggestions in the meditation to meet your spirit guide and then using those in my own personal meditation I was able to do it better. But I do still give him all thanks for giving me those images in the first place. Very helpful and enjoyable tool.
Wonderful series for meditation, chakras and psychic development. Practical useful applications for any level and some "real world" advice regarding this. Presented in a spiritual pursuit without any religious bias. The series will change your life if used correctly. It can be just the beginning of a spiritual journey for many like me!!
I found this book to be average. Informative and relaxing nothing I didn't already know. It's a great first book for exploring Meditation. I recomend it for the begining psychic explorer. I am amased with John Edwards' ability to comunicate. He explains psychic powers simple and complete.
This is a great meditation and a great way to open up your psychic abilities. There is a color meditation that really helps with the chakras and keeping you in balance. The only issue I have with the narration is that John goes really fast. He's a very fast paced man. Which if you are used to slowing down in your meditations, or are new to this. This will be a bit difficult for you. But over all it's a fantastic guide.
"Old, Less Polished Version of Infinite Quest"
I downloaded this after I had read Infinite Quest because I loved Infinite Quest so much and wanted more.....Unfortunately so many of the stories and examples are EXACTLY the same as the ones discussed in IQ. Furthermore, the recording quality is clearly much less sophisticated as sometimes you can actually hear other things going on in the background. Save your money on this expensive collection but download Infinite Quest instead.
There was background noise and conversation.
I really appreciate and respect John Edward. He has obviously evolved over the years. I just wish that with all of his new experiences that he wouldn't have recycled the same stories and examples. This collection should probably be retired but if it is the only set that you download, it is still good.
"Developing Your Own Psychic Powers"
It was a great help to me in a stressful time. I found the exercises calming and easy to do.
"Narration way too fast!"
The content may be good but the spoken word is way too quick. Particularly in the meditation and practical exercises. It was almost defeating the purpose of trying to relax and breath.
the best psychic development guide out there. John gives it you straight, it's up to you to put your ego and preconceived notions aside and spend considerable time and effort to achieve results for the betterment of yourself and to possibly help others. Cheers to John Edwards, I will be eagerly awaiting more from him.
