Editorial Reviews

Review

"Leclere’s experiences in the paranormal probably won’t raise the hairs on your arm, but her relationships with men--an annoying husband and a hulking, manipulative, self-declared shamanic healer from the Adirondacks--definitely will. It’s a cautionary tale with a happy ending because Leclere got smart. Her difficult experiences led her to profound growth, self-regard, and joy in living." (Eva Yaa Asantewaa)

"A remarkable book. . . . In a stunning analysis, [Leclere] shows how every individual is capable of becoming clairvoyant. . . . This book is a sure winner for your paranormal library, and one you might suggest to your local librarian to place in the public library. Topnotch writing, topnotch reading, and topnotch enjoyment best describe this memorable book." (Lee Prosser, Ghostvillage.com, Jan 2006)

“. . . a remarkable personal odyssey into the world of shamanic healing.”  (Kathryn Price, WomensRadio.com, Oct 2006)

"Alexandra asserts that we can all develop healing and shamanistic skills. It is a matter of right attitude, intent, belief, and love for the self and others. Recommended for budding as well as practicing shamans." (Jennifer Hoskins, New Dawn Magazine, Issue 115, Jul/Aug 2009)

“An exciting personal account of an apprenticeship with the spirits. Alexandra Leclere is wonderfully candid about how to avoid teachers who take our power away, to practice discernment in dealing with psychic energies, and to walk between the worlds in balance and with humor.” (Robert Moss, author of The Dreamer’s Book of the Dead and Dreamways of the Iroquois)

NEW AGE / SPIRITUALITY

“An exciting personal account of an apprenticeship with the spirits. Alexandra Leclere is wonderfully candid about how to avoid teachers who take our power away, to practice discernment in dealing with psychic energies, and to walk between the worlds in balance and with humor.”
--Robert Moss, author of The Dreamer’s Book of the Dead and Dreamways of the Iroquois

How difficult is it to accept that you are clairvoyant? For television producer Alexandra Leclere, the possibility was something she never expected to encounter. Her first contact with the spirit world began after a successful alternative healing experience allowed her to avoid invasive surgery, inspiring her to research various forms of spiritual healing with the idea of producing a television special on the subject. But at one gathering of healers and shamans she was shocked to find that she was the only one who could see the spirit of a deceased woman who was being honored there--a sign that marked the beginning of a remarkable personal odyssey into the world of shamanic healing, where she discovered that she herself was an unusually gifted healer.

Despite the extraordinary powers of clairaudience, clairsentience, and clairvoyance that were awakened through her work with the spirit world, Alexandra Leclere learned that the greatest gift she received from her shamanic awakening was her ability to experience unconditional joy. Often the pain caused by unresolved psychological traumas from the past--including past lives--is the key obstacle restricting access to the powers offered by the spirits. The first step in healing requires reconnecting with the joy that resides within us. Once this connection has been established, we are all capable of restoring our relationship with the spirit world. Alexandra Leclere’s story provides a roadmap for this journey.

ALEXANDRA LECLERE was the president of an international television production and multimedia firm for more than seventeen years before discovering her shamanic vocation. She works internationally with clients, and she gives sessions at the Oaks Healing Center in New Rochelle, New York.

Format: Paperback
This publication contains multiple interesting stories, but very little factual information one may use as a guide or set of instructions to perform shamanic healing themselves. Perhaps the title led me to believe this was sort of a ''do-it-yourself''book. Not finding same, I was slightly disappointed, but I did enjoy some of the stories.

Format: Paperback
A lesson in how to bring joy (and spirits) into one's life. This autobiographical book sometimes reads like a journal with much detail, but I feel that is part of its charm. I found this book to be amazingly candid and insightful. My sense is that the author wanted to take the reader down as many carefully described paths as possible to explain how and why she ended up where she did. Given where Leclere started--as a TV producer--and where she eventually found herself--a clairvoyant and healer--I felt that the journalistic details were necessary. Afterall, it isn't every suburban soccer mom who finds herself participating in Native American sweat lodges or pursuing four-day vision quests alone in the wilderness without food or water. As a suburban soccer mom, I was happy for the lengthy narrative of how she got there. I was also inspired by her journey. I found Leclere's caveat about being wary of giving away too much of one's power very important no matter what one's quest is. This book is extremely compelling, and I hope that Leclere writes many more. I will definitely look for one of her workshops!

I enjoyed the author's account of her spiritual path and how she opened up. But I also thought it was more of a "how to" or had ways to open up more for the reader. It is not, it is totally her autobiography. Now, I do not have a problem with that at all and did find her story fascinating BUT the blurb about the book leads one to believe that it has more methods and ways to learn than it does. That was my only complaint, I just wish it had more tips for the reader on development and expanding.

The author is obviously a very gifted healer and medium and I look forward to any more books. I bet she does a great workshop!

Alexandra Leclere's SEEING THE DEAD, TALKING WITH SPIRITS: SHAMANIC HEALING THROUGH CONTACT WITH THE SPIRIT WORLD tells of one woman's discovery of her ability to heal through spirit contact. Alexandra Leclere was a TV producer, not a psychic, when she discovered her talent after an alternative healing session. Her interest in and research on spiritual healing brought her into contact with shamans and healers and brought with it the discovery that she could see spirits. A fine first-person account of how these revelations changed her life.
