Summary

We are so much more than our physical experience.

Claire Broad, known as ''The Honest Medium'', experienced psychic phenomena from early childhood. As she grew older, communications from deceased loved ones became stronger and spirit teachers made their presence known. In this uplifting book, Claire teaches us why we may have confidence that there is an afterlife, how we can heal and awaken spiritually through the practice of mediumship and most importantly, what we can learn from those already living on the other side.

With case studies, personal stories and scientific research, delivered in her signature down to earth manner, Claire shares seven key lessons we can all learn from the spirit world:

  1. You Are Spirit
  2. Nobody Dies Alone
  3. Death Is an Illusion
  4. You Are Never Alone
  5. You Can Rise Above Fear
  6. Love Never Dies
  7. If You Ask, It Will Be Given

Nice but still not convinced

As a none believer I desperately wanted this book to awaken my spiritual perspective.
It’s a good read, enjoyable to listen to, and I think the author genuinely believes in her gift and comes from a good place.
However I still think there isn’t anything in this book that can’t be proved with science.
For me it loses its credibility with the spirit guide. The author’s spirit guide is a beautiful handsome Red Indian male called White Feather.......of course he is called that, as if he would be called anything else. Why is it that these spirit guides are never short , fat, bald and called Gary or Dave ? But no, this spirit guide is all majestic, all wise , all noble and beautiful, of course he is. It just all seems a bit airy fairy and convenient.
Anyway, if you are a true believer, this book will indulge all your fantasies and beliefs. You will enjoy it, and so I recommend it....that’s IF you are a believer ;)

Uplifting, healing and informative

I loved every bit of this book. The author comes across so genuine, so down to earth and talks about her fears and thoughts that ordinary people would have too. In the book Claire discusses different aspects of faith, spirituality and even people with no faith and afterlife. All information is well researched, referanced and authors and scientists in the book are all from range of professional backgrounds : medical doctors to psychologists. I have personal a interest in NDE and have read extensively in this subject. Claire mentions names of professors, doctors who indeed confirmed their research findings in their books and documentaries that I already knew. So I do think this is a very trustworthy and highly credibile book. This book also gives you ways to develop your own psychic skills, meditation and connecting with your loved ones. The only sad thing about this book is when you are coming to the end. Its one of these books you don't want to finish. Thank you Claire and your spirit guides for writing this beautiful book. I joined FB to connect with you and follow your events.

A fascinating and reassuring book

Since the passing of my partner this year I have been reading and listening to a lot of spiritual books and I can truthfully say that this is one of the best. It is warmly and lovingly written and read. A must read for people who are grieving or those in an interest in what lies beyond.

Amazing :)

Well read, her voice is so calming & easy to listen too.
Really confirmed my beliefs and especially at the moment when I felt so lonely & forgotten.
Made me chuckle but also made my chin wobble! An amazing listen :)

Couldn't Finish

I didn't enjoy the narration and the content that I had read felt self-important and annoying. Perhaps I was being impatient, but I feel I've read and listened to better on the subject. Couldn't finish this one.

Loved this book…

I bought this book as I’m at a time in my life where I need/want to know more about spirit - but I wanted only good/true knowledge and this book ticks the boxes on so many levels for me.
Of the experiences I have had, of my own, the author confirmed so much for me. There were many ‘aha’ moments. Lots of suggestions and explanations. I’m also not as “scared” as I used to be, the knowledge is a comfort… at the end of the book, there are lots of resources too, from the author. Always a great sign of authenticity. Thank you for a great book.
Last point - I took a few weeks to read (hear) this book, as there was so much to hear and understand, but this was great. A very good and full experience for me.
