Editorial Reviews Review

Bestselling psychic Sylvia Browne offers a detailed account of life in heaven in Life on the Other Side. Readers should be warned that it takes a huge leap of faith to follow this celebrity psychic across the chasm of doubt to the other side. In her opening chapters she explains that she is like the young boy in the movie The Sixth Sense--she sees dead people. When she was a child, these spirits came into her room at night and disappeared when a light went on. "To this day I can't sleep in a completely dark room, because the minute I try it the room starts filling up," she writes. "As a child, it was scary. As an adult, it's just annoying..."

Once she establishes her lengthy connections to life after death (including conversations with a spirit guide named Francine and her own near-death experience), Browne launches into life in the fourth dimension. In a chapter titled "After the Tunnel, Arriving on the Other Side," Browne explains that newcomers pass through a "hall of wisdom" and then review their most recent life through a "scanning machine." In the chapter "Beyond the Entrance," Brown claims that spirits live in whatever kind of home they've longed for, or they recreate a favorite home from earth. Plus, "the more spiritually advanced we become, the more physical beauty we're given, as a badge of our progress and hard work." Sex is known as "merging" and does not require birth control or any commitments of exclusivity. These kinds of glowing accounts of the other side cause skeptics to snicker, believers to feel comforted, and thousands of fans to keep on buying her books. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Browne has been spreading her popular and uplifting psychic messages in private practice and on daytime talk shows for decades; her 1999 book, The Other Side and Back, hit number one on the PW bestseller list. Now she's back with a plainspoken, good-humored guide to the invisible worldAwhich some people call the "afterlife" and others call "heaven"Athat, she argues, is just "the other side" of our world. Browne takes readers on a detailed tour (with illustrations!) of this paradise, where there are buildings (concert halls, athletic stadiums, libraries and schoolsAbut no shopping malls); where psychological help is available for those who need help making the transition; and where "we don't need to eat," but we can do so for sheer pleasure (and we don't need bathrooms afterward). Drawing on her years of experience as a psychic hypnotist and healer, Browne suggests that the other side is a kind of rest stop for our souls, where we go in between our multiple sojourns in this dimension. The folks over there, she argues, can talk to us, help us cure AIDS and guide us as we try to heal the pain in our lives. Browne anticipates reader skepticism with a kind of tough-edged patienceAshe's been there and seems to genuinely want to help readers get past their crippling disbelief so they can understand the cycles of life. And she's armed with examples to show she's not making any of this upAshe tells of skeptics who, when hypnotized, began speaking ancient, dead languages they couldn't possible have learned in this lifetime and of audiotape recordings of voices from the other side. Although the book isn't likely to make believers out of scoffers, it is a well-written and entertaining cultural bellwether. BOMC, QPB, One Spirit, Literary Guild, Doubleday Book Club selections.

Moreover, everything she writes makes sense.

Sylvia Browne's book on Life on the other side: a psychic's tour of the afterlife was a really interesting read.
It makes me feel much better to know that there is life after this one.

I read with fascination, popular psychic Sylvia Browne's new 304 page book that she says tells all about life after death. The entire first chapter details her life and the lives of her ancestors as they relate to the spirit world. She goes into detail about HOW she knows what she knows. For some reason, I tend to believe what she says! Sylvia writes, that through this book she is acting as our "psychic travel agent" answering the five basic questions, "How do I get there?", "What does it look like?", "What are the local (people) like?", "What is there to do?" and "How exactly do I get back." Things that most of us would be "dying" to know. I have seen Sylvia on TV many times, and find her fascinating. This is a hard book to put down after you start reading. There's an awful lot of "facts" she provides for us to consider. It left me with a peaceful feeling about the hereafter. She believes that "The Other Side" is Home, where we all came from and where we will all go again, and that we carry very real memories of it in our spirit minds. She has researched her topics with an addiction, as she claims to be extremely naturally skeptical. She also claims that just as some folks have a God-given musical or artistic talent, others have received a psychic gift which is passed on from generation to generation. Whether or not you end up believing what she writes, you can't help but come away with food for thought. Most interesting !

If you would like to change your belief in an angry, punishing god, to a belief in a living God of unconditional love, I recommend three books:
1. An Encounter With A Prophet by C. A. Lewis
2. Life on the Other Side : A Psychic's Tour of the Afterlife by Sylvia Browne, Lindsay Harrison
3. Conversations With God : An Uncommon Dialogue (Book 1) by Neale Donald Walsch

Format: Hardcover
If all that Sylvia Browne has detailed in this book about the "Other Side" is TRUTH, then it is likely she has gone deeper into the etheric than any other explorer -- at least any other author -- including Swedenborg. Not only does she paint vivid word pictures, she provides drawings of structures on the other side -- produced, she tells us, by her going into transe and her spirit guide then directing two artists. According to Browne, her research is based on her direct-voice mediumship (wherein her spirit guide communicates with others in the room while Browne is in a transe and the material is being taped),her near-death experience (NDE), the NDEs of others, her astral traveling, and past-life and between-life regressions of many of her clients (she is a hypotherapist).
Although I have read dozens of metaphysical books on this subject, I have never come across any with as much detailed information as this one. I must confess that I had some reservations about reading her book as Browne seemed a bit too "New Age" and cultish for me (since she started her own church). The first half of the book was fully consistent with all of the things I had previously read about the Other Side, including the many dimensions or planes and the fact that the plane we gravitate to is based on our actions and good works in this life time. We get many chances to evolve in spirit (other lifetimes) and progress toward the Godhead (true heaven).
In the second half of the book, Browne gives detailed information on aliens, angels, and councils on the Other Side. Much of that I have read before, but never so much and with the certainty and matter-of-factness of Browne. When I finished the book, I didn't know what to think.

Format: Hardcover
Psychic Sylvia Browne provides a detailed look at her own life, her interactions with spirits and angels of all kinds, and what it has taught her about life before and after death. Take this as one woman's account of a fascinating life, and you've found yourself some very interesting reading. Take this as a spiritual metaphor for your religious beliefs, and you will find comfort in your new understanding. Take this as fiction, and you will be at the edge of your seat. Take this as the unexplained, and you will have a terrific mystery to unravel.
Ms. Browne has been in contact with spiritual figures from a young age, and she has made her life's work helping people to come to grips with issues they have concerning their connections to the spiritual world. She often uses deep hypnosis in her work, and reports on the consistent patterns of recalled former lives. She also shares the experiences of her own life, including a spiritual guide, Francine, who often speaks through her and her own near-death experience.
In the 1950s there was a famous case of potential reincarnation discovered through hypnosis involving Bridey Murphy. Ms. Browne refers to that case, and supplements it with her own findings. I found Ms. Browne's portrayal more convincing than the original Bridey Murphy material. For example, some of what she describes could be seen as a form of schizophrenia. Concerned about that, she arranges to have herself tested, and finds that she does not have that disease. She also runs a test whereby a psychiatrist picked 20 random patients, and asked Francine to say how they died. Francine was correct 19 of 20 times, and provided interesting new insights into the 20th case.
