About the Author
James Van Praagh is a world-famous medium who is renowned for conveying messages and conversations between the physical and spiritual realms. He is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Reaching To Heaven and Talking To Heaven, which sold close to 600,000 copies in hardcover. Although he was raised a Roman Catholic and even entered a seminary at 14, he soon found that "spirituality" was more compelling than "religion." He graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in broadcasting and communication, then moved to Los Angeles, where at age 24, he met a medium who told him that within two years, he himself would become clairvoyant. Van Praagh's psychic sensitivity increased, and he began to receive messages from the beyond. He now lives in Southern California but travels throughout the country lecturing, giving demonstrations, and spreading the knowledge of life after death. In addition, he conducts specialized tours of spiritual centers around the world, including in Brazil, Egypt, and Mexico.

When people would look at me funny when I would tell them I had signs Chad was still with me, I thought I must be losing my mind until I read this book.
A parent never gets over this type of tragedy, but it's more bearable when you understand they have just moved on but not forgotten. They are still there for you and you still need to be here for them. Send them your love and prayers.
It was two weeks before my first sign because I was in such horrendous grief that I just wanted to go and be with him to make sure he was OK. I really believe he got through to me to save my life. And to this day, even though some days are so hard to get through, he still lets me know he's around. I had a dream--he didn't speak, but he looked as if peace surrounded him and a beautiful smile. I asked him in the dream if he was coming back, and the dream ended.
Keep your heart open---they want to reach you and let you know they are in a better place of peace and learning. Become aware because even the smallest of co-incidences can be a sign. I saw 3 double rainbows in three consecutive days, which is not common at all in the desert region, which Chad loved seeing when he was of this earth. They are rare but do happen. My garden bloomed profusely this summer and fall, better than they ever did and longer than the season usually allows (Chad knew I loved my gardens).
We will see tour loved ones again, and the bonds of love never die.
Chad has only been on his new journey for several months now, but I feel blessed to have so many signs.
That said, I lost my father in a horrific auto accident. I had purchased this book a year before my Dad's death and didn't finish it. A few years after my Dad's death I picked it up again and found it to be an amazing, helpful book to get me through different areas of loss, not just my Dad's death.
We live life learning new things everyday. James Von Praagh reinforces this in the chapter The Grieving Process with the stages of grief. We are our own being and need to take control of our own life. I suggest this book to anyone that has experienced any type of loss.
