About the Author
John Holland is an internationally renowned medium and spiritual teacher. He has been lecturing, teaching, demonstrating, and reading for private clients for over 16 years. He’s dedicated to the ongoing development of his unique gift and brings real integrity to his profession. John says, “If I can help people connect with someone on the other side and bring peace and perhaps some closure, then I’ve done my job.”
John hosts is own weekly radio show “Spirit Connections,” and starred in a 2-hour A & E special: “Mediums-We See Dead People.” The History Channel featured John in a one-hour special “Psychic History” highlighting his special abilities. His story was originally profiled on CBS “Unsolved Mysteries.”

Holland also wrote "I believe that our soul purpose is (1) to be all that we can be, and (2) to live our lives in alignment with our highest good." Who could argue with that? (I know - a selfish, ego centered materialist!).
What Holland writes is very much in keeping with the philosophy of most religions. For instance "But it isn't about becoming the president of a company, winning awards, or saving the world. It's more about affecting people and the planet it a positive way. My soul purpose isn't so much related to becoming a well-known psychic medium, author, or teacher (abilities and talents that were provided for me to use) rather, it's about influencing and having a positive effect on others."
Who can argue with what he writes? I highlighted and typed up five and a half pages of his quotes, quotes that I felt were worth repeating, worth re-reading and thinking about. If you are reading this review, you have some idea as to what this book is about. All I can say is that it is very much worth reading and thinking about, and Holland's advice is worth paying heed to in your own life. We are the source of most of our own problems. We are the only ones who can fix ourselves. I strongly recommend buying and reading this book. You may not agree with everything the author writes, but there is much in this book that could benefit your life. And yes, it really is about influencing and having a positive effect on others and the planet, unless you are a self-centered, ego-maniacal automaton. Put the phone down. Stop text messaging for 2 minutes, and think about it. Buy and read this book.
James Van Pragh is also up there with him. There do exist many, many more wonderful teachers, and these guys
are Hay House Publishing stars who "lecture" and give workshops. I also want to shout out Ram Dass and Belleruth Naparstek.
But it's very grounded. Very good real-life advice. John's bright and earnest energy helps him teach about how to get to the bottom of one's own intuitive side. Quickly! He does have weekend and week-long workshops for those who want to go deeper. He gives fascinating messages. But Holland's giant gift, I feel, is making death much less of a walled-off subject: He demystifies and lightens up the dying process(the horror of which seems to have been drummed into people by psychic shows on TV, which are highly edited
and of course horror movies for people who don't endure enough trauma in their daily lives:)
Much love and blessings to you all!
