Looking back, John Edward now sees the early signs that he was destined to become an acclaimed psychic and medium. "There were times when I knew things I shouldn't have known," he writes. "Simple things like who was coming over, or who was on the phone." He knew events in family history that no one had told him about. He was inexplicably fascinated with television characters that possessed supernatural powers. He'd see auras around schoolteachers and hear voices that whispered true information in his mind. Eventually his gifts expanded into hearing the names of spirits "who'd gone to the other side." Finally, as a teenager Edward began to claim rather than question his psychic abilities and committed his life work to pursuing and learning about his gifts. Now that he has become a renowned medium (appearing on numerous talk shows, including Larry King Live), Edwards has written an entertaining "my life as a psychic" type of autobiography, packed with fascinating true stories. At the same time, Edward offers an engaging self-help book, teaching readers how to visit a medium and even showing seekers how they can recognize and develop their own psychic abilities. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Publishers Weekly
It's easy to distrust those who claim to communicate with the dead, to dismiss them as charlatans who take advantage of the bereaved. Psychic medium Edward himself urges readers to "be skeptical, though not cynical." But it is not so easy to reject Edward's compelling tale of gradually accepting his psychic abilities (seeing auras, astro-traveling, premonitions) and acting as a messenger between spirits who have passed over to "the Other Side" and their loved ones left behind. With a college degree in public health and administration, and "rising within the ranks" of a large hospital, he finally gave in to the "constant yanking feeling" he had experienced since he was a boy. In several poignant stories of connecting people with their deceased family members, Edward tries "to demystify spirit communication" by explaining exactly what he sees, hears and feels during a "reading." The spirits, he says, speak to him in voices, sounds, images, sensations, smells, tastes and feelings, mostly in symbolic form (for example, a father who always signed things with the numeral "4" fills the psychic's head with images of golf swings?"fore"), to convey a message to loved ones. Usually, beyond identifying the senders in verifiable ways, the messages are simply that those who have passed on are all right and that "they're still with us." Coming off like James Van Praagh (Talking to Heaven) tempered with the down-to-earth appeal of Caroline Myss, Edward offers an intriguing collection of anecdotes that may not convince the cynical but that can both comfort and fascinate the merely skeptical.

I believe in the afterlife but wanted some kind of validation.
I've read a few books and watched things on television.
But I needed more, John Edward gave me that more .
All I can say is Thank You .... I am a believer. 💓
The book is very easy to read, I read the entire book in two days. It is almost like he is in front of you talking to you. He doesn't come across as arrogant, in fact he acknowledges that he has a gift, and seems warm and sincere. He even tells you how to separate a good psychic from a fraud.
If you have any interest in the subject of the afterlife, psychic ability, or just an interest in John Edward, this is worth reading.
In the last chapter there is a meditation exercize, which in the beginning is similar to the guided fantasy relaxation we used to do in theater, but then goes further. I haven't tried it yet, but even if it makes you relaxed, it is worth the time.
Before I bought it, I read that it would have accounts of his readings and I hesitated to buy it a moment because some of the other medium books I've read have had almost word-for-word readings that are no doubt fascinating to their clients, but of absolutely no interest to me and usually so tedious, I skim them and regret buying the book. The author/medium always needs to make these readings of strangers of interest to the reader. Mr. Edward doesn't quote entire readings word-for-word, but he does summarize some amazing stories. I didn't skim any of his book.
Highly recommend to those into psychic/mediums and who enjoy memoirs. C'est moi!
giving us his (often !very) personal & quite funny history of his life & times
as a psychic-medium.
He is likeable, personable, upfront, & down-to-earth -- not exactly what you'd expect as a psychic --
but then again, when he was young, he didn't expect himself to be a psychic-medium!
There are many stories which will make you shiver, give you goosebumps, and say aloud, "OMG!" (+you'll mean it!)
Don't forget to look around the room to make sure you really are alone...
...Are you sure............???
I love watching John, & Char, & Long Island Psychic, James Van Praagh, my grrl Lisa Williams on tv/Youtube,
AND of course, reading their books!!
Thank you, modern-day prophets (& IMHO Heroes*)
He did not want to be a 'medium' - didn't like the idea of talking to 'dead people'. But Th Othe Side pretty much forced him.
I had often wondered how he balanced being a Roman Catholic AND a psychic. In this book, he explains that very well. He does believe in reincaration, which makes me think of the Christ in A Course In Miracles.
All-in-all a very informative and enjoyable read,
I have recommended and gifted this book several times, you will not regret buying it
