Format: Paperback
The Psychic Housewives Handbook, is exactly that, a guide for psychic development that is not scary or intimidating. Lorraine Roe does an excellent job of demystifying what it means to be psychic. As I read the pages I can hear her voice reading the text. I can feel her witty and jovial personality come off the page.
Since she herself was once a skeptic and then an "overnight psychic", her advice feels much more pure. Her book was not meant to be a text for the university scholar doing PhD research, nor does she claim that this should be one's only source for learning about spirituality, meditation and ghostbusting.
I have personally gone through her "Laundry List" of exercises and found it as wonderful guidance in opening up my psychic abilities. My children are also finding themselves unknowingly passing on messages and then giving themselves a double take of disbelief.
As a family we are noticing more, loving more and learning to rely on God and intuition. We are doing that based in part by the exercises in Roe's book. She's gotten some literary flack, but if the exercises in her book help a person or a family to grow and develop spiritually, why wouldn't you read the book?

"The truth is, as mostly a stay-at-home mom I barely have time to write this book, so you probably don't have much time to read it. Sure, J.K. Rowling penned a bestseller with a young child sleeping on her lap at a coffee shop. But she had one child. I have three. That's the excuse I give myself anyway. I've read my share of new age how-to books. I haven't read many written around laundry, dishes, and kids running through the house." - From the book

Amen, sister! (I wrote my book Back in Time Tarot, also by Hampton Roads, under similar--and very crazy--circumstances).

Well, if you're a busy housewife like Lorraine Roe and me, but also feel pulled and prompted to learn about paranormal activity, understand your unusual dreams/visions, contact spirit guides, practice divination, talk to the dead, perform ghostbusting, honor your kids' psychic abilities, and follow intuition for your highest good, you're in luck...so read on.

Lorraine Roe was like many career women, running ragged with a fast-paced life as an Emmy-award winning, skeptical investigative reporter. But her life now? Much different. Some would say verrrry different, in fact.

In The Psychic Housewives' Handbook, the author serves as an outrageous, comical, and practical personal trainer by providing helpful advice and personal anecdotes for those experiencing the initial pangs of "paranormal" living.

Emphasizing that we're all psychic, Roe demystifies the world of vibes, introducing readers to ways to detect, ground, remove, facilitate, engage and channel various types of energy. Yet, she also gives real-world tips and examples on the importance of radical self-care, setting boundaries, heeding gut instinct, asking for support, listening to your "little Buddhas" (i.e.

I liked this book from the very start!
It is written in a witty and down-to-earth manner that makes it easy for the reader to follow along with the exercises at the end of each chapter. The author uses personal experiences to illustrate each topic, and presents them in such an entertaining way that makes this book really enjoyable.
I found it easy to understand and relate to the concepts presented in
this book - even as a beginner!
I highly recommend "Psychic Housewives" to anyone interested in psychic development!

From start to finish this book is a fun ride! It's great for anyone interested in learning a little more about themselves and the people (living and dead) around us. The author did a great job of making a curious skeptic like me a lot less "creeped out" by idea of psychics and a lot more comfortable with the talent. I enjoyed it so much I bought a copy for my mom.

Book was well paced and easy to read. I have already made a list of who to pass this book to next. Each day I meet more and more that have suddenly switched on their psychic gifts and are both excited and terrified at the same time. This book is a great resource for them - and everyone. YOU are psychic too!

From the title, I was hoping for an actual handbook that defined and discussed psychic ability and so forth. Instead it turned out to be a poorly written piece that had little actual substance to offer and mostly kept making claims of "If you embrace the psychic life, you will find that everything is amazing! And if you feel crazy and lost and confused, that means you're doing it right." It made these claims over and over and over. But it never really went anywhere with how or why life would be amazing. Too bad. It was a good idea for a book.

Now, I'm going to get on my soapbox for just a moment. One of the reasons that the New Age community is often scoffed at by many is because of books like this. It's not the content, it's the lack of quality. For some reason there is a lot that is published in the New Age section of the bookshelf that is just poorly written, poorly edited, poorly thought out, poorly formatted, poorly . . . yes, and on and on. No wonder it isn't taken seriously.

This book definitely knocked the idea of being "psychic" rather than built it or supported it.

So, now for specifics:

* The writing is sloppy. Much of it reads like a draft (sometimes even a flippant rough draft where someone, hopefully not the editor, thought that the "fresh spontaneity" of the drafted phrase warranted the lack of coherence).

* There are sections that read with good content: for instance, the section on what to do if there are ghosts in your house. In this section, the author lays out what to do and, importantly, WHY to do it. She makes sense and gives some nice, grounded advice.

* There are sections that read with what almost qualifies as "no content": for instance, the section on dealing with "dark energy.
