Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Psychic medium Rosen, in this part memoir, part self-help work, helps readers to tune into their own intuitive abilities. Self-described as just a regular gal who works out in the gym, drops her kids at school, and then talks to the dead for a living, the author reveals that binge eating and depression in college led to her plea for help and consequent discovery of messages from her deceased grandmother relayed through automatic writing. In time, Rosen—who lectures, offers workshops, and has advised such Hollywood stars as Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox Arquette—realized that her gift enabled her to receive messages from spirits hoping to reconnect with loved ones (quite often, she asserts, their mission is to advise their family members to do what they didn't do in life or avoid mistakes the spirits made). According to the author, each individual is born with lessons that must be learned in order to grow spiritually; those who fail to progress, she reveals, must deal with their baggage in the afterlife. Though her story in itself is fascinating, Rosen's goal is to help readers hone their psychic powers: she includes meditation exercises (a primary way of connecting with spirit energy) as well as other techniques. Rosen's conversational tone and easygoing sense of humor lend warmth and accessibility to her otherworldly journey. (Feb.)

Review

“Her story in itself is fascinating [and] Rosen’s goal is to help readers hone their own psychic powers. . . . [Her] conversational tone and easygoing sense of humor lend warmth and accessibility to her otherworldly journey.” (Publishers Weekly)

Rebecca Rosen talks to dead people. Really. . . . I promise that if you read this book you’ll discover that the dead aren’t really dead. . . . They are watching out for you and want to communicate with you. Rosen can teach you in simple, easy steps how to do it. (Arielle Ford, author of The Soulmate Secret)

In planning this book Rebecca Rosen was faced with a difficult dilemma. As an experienced and skilled psychic medium, she knows that souls outlive their bodies, that it's possible to contact deceased souls and facilitate contact with loved ones, that souls have a variety of ways of leaving hints to the living, that each of us has spirit guides and angels, along with deceased souls, who can be called upon for help. She knows all these things and much more, but what can she hope to teach us poor lay readers who are not psychic mediums?

One thing for sure she can't do is teach us in a book how to be psychic mediums. A manual on how to drive a car does not translate into high level driving skills. So she has chosen to focus on what I would call an intermediate goal, namely, showing people how to develop their intuition in order to be more accessible to messages from beyond.

It turns out that her lesson guide on intuition happens to be an excellent personal growth program, so that even if one dismisses the life-after-life structure and the angelic/spirit guide presence, it is possible to derive great value from following her suggestions and using her exercises.

Actually, her easy familiarity with deceased souls and her matter-of-fact way of reporting their messages plus her clients' acceptance that the messages are the real thing from their deceased relatives might influence skeptical readers to be more open to her cosmology.

So the logic of the book goes something like this: 1) It is possible for people to contact the souls of their deceased loved ones and vice-versa. 2) Enhanced intuition is the key. 3) You can develop your intuition by following an easy-to-understand program of personal growth, beginning with meditation.

Direct, down-to-earth, and sometimes sassy!

Yes, Rebecca is all that and then some. I love her and you will too! Check out this story that Nightline did on her, which aired last night. It is very interesting and shows what she does including validations, and she explains how she gets her messages.

The book is an interesting read with easy to follow, well explained meditation exercises which will hopefully finally allow me to get to that place. I have been trying for years off and on.

I loved reading about how she came to realize her gift and the journey her life is taking. I believe we all get divine interevention at one time or another in our lives (it happened yesterday for my sister), if we choose to see it so why not be able to get messages from a spirit guide?

On top of being a great book if you are interested in pursuing the ability to find your spirit guide or to unlock past "damage" that has stopped you from reaching a higher plane; this book is a a great workbook with places for you to write your notes as you complete guided exercises.

Rebecca hits on a lot of things I learned from a favorite book from my past entitled "Many Lives, Many Masters" where she talks about how we all have to learn certain lessons in each of our lives in order to move onto the next plateau. Also how we are all players in each others many lives, like your son may have been your father at one time, or your husband your brother, etc.

Whether you believe in any of this or not, I believe Spirited is a lot more than just a Channeling Guide to the spirit world. This book is a great self help book. The "Root Issue Chart" is a great place to start if you are looking to get to the root of why you do certain things and how we can move past the past.

Whether or not you believe in Rebecca's gift to connect with Spirit, her practical advice on how to develop and tap in to your intuition should benefit everyone. The exercises included in Chapter 3 provide a great assessment of where you are, and a road map to get you where you really want to be, in life. The book as a whole highlights the importance of learning important life lessons in order to evolve on a spiritual level and become closer to God .... (Spirit/Universe.)

The book includes many testimonials from Rebecca's readings which I found fascinating. I had a personal reading with her myself and although I was skeptical going in, I was a believer after. There is simply no other explanation for her "knowing" the obscure yet meaningful things that came through. I also attended her kickoff event in Michigan and saw her touch the lives of so many people, including the woman sitting next to me. She was right on. Contrary to what some might think, these experiences simply reaffirmed my belief in God, life everlasting and provided much needed clarity on life and death.

We all know there are scam artists out there, but Rebecca Rosen isn't one of them.

I met Rebecca when she was first "coming out" with her amazing psychic gifts. She worked in the back of a spiritual bookstore. I was so wowed by her reading that I told everyone I knew about her. Everyone who went to her was equally wowed. A friend who worked for a local newspaper wrote an article about her and . . . well, the rest is history!

Rebecca tells her story with candor and passion. Her journey to accept and finally to embrace her unique gifts has lessons for all of us. She knows first-hand how important it is to move beyond your perceived limitations and live the life you were meant to live. She gives you sound tools to help you.

Rebecca's message is filled with hope. To know that love never dies and that our loved ones are in a place of light and love and are still part of our life, makes living on this earth easier.

I have had readings done personally by Rebecca and also been a memeber of the audience in her group readings. The messages I have heard the most from loved ones who have departed is: "Have fun. Do what bring you joy. Love each other. I am always here."

If you want to feel positive about life and living, do yourself a favor and read this book!

Thank you Rebecca for touching so many hearts in so many ways.
