Amazon.com Review

Someday we will return to a place of unfathomable beauty, where we live amongst all the beings we have ever loved, promises George Anderson author of Walking in the Garden of Souls. "It is a place we will see again only after our lifetime of struggle, hardship and hurt has earned us the reward of true and final peace." Our task is not to simply muddle through, waiting for our ticket to Eden, cautions Anderson. Rather, we must set out to create "a Garden on earth while we are here," meaning we must cultivate the same life we yearn for in the hereafter. As he did with Lessons from the Light, Anderson conveys messages from the departed to help us tend our garden. The advice ranges from how to plant hope in times of despair to how to water the seeds of compassion (it may start with placing money in a panhandler's palm). Sometimes the garden metaphor seems forced or clichéd. But overall, this is a book with honorable intentions, helping us understand the purpose of life on Earth. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I nearly made the mistake of not buying this book. I had read George Anderson's "Lessons from the Light" as well as two of the books about him. I found them all interesting, informative, intriguing, and inspirational, but it had been my experience that second and third books by authors just usually rehash the material in the first book or two. I doubted that Anderson had much more to offer. I was very much wrong. This is the best of all books by or about Anderson. I hesitated in buying it, let it sit on a book shelf for some time, but then couldn't put it down once I started reading.
This book is more than some trite, mundane, and unremarkable utterances from the dead. Of course, the cynics who call themselves skeptics would scoff at even that, but I have learned enough about mediumship to know that it is for real. Yes, there are frauds, but Anderson is certainly not one of them. He comes across as a sincere, caring individual with a gift that he is using to help many people. From the many spirit communications that have come through him, Anderson has been able to piece together a concept of the "hereafter" and how souls continue in the realms. There is much wisdom, much profoundness in this book, all consistent with the preponderance of information obtained through other gifted mediums of the past 100 or more years.
Whenever I enjoy a book as much as I did this one, I buy a copy for my daughter, a pediatrics nurse who occasionally works with dying children. She has informed me that such books help her understand and deal with the losses. However, inasmuch as my daughter is now expecting a child, I questioned whether I should buy this book for her. Does a woman ready to give birth to new life want to read about death?

Once or twice in a life time a book comes along that touches the soul and heart so deeply, that one can not help but to change from the "healing." Walking in the Garden of Souls" by George Anderson and Andrew Barone, is one such book. Their first book, "Lessons from the Light" was a phenomenal work and a blessing for readers. While focused on the gift of mediumship and its purpose, this new work continues where "Lessons" left off. This book provides a deep and spiritual insight into the purpose of our lives, the journey of our souls both on earth and in the hereafter. The miracle of the book is the way that it also touches the spirit to the core and provides an intense healing for those who grieve. The writing is superb and flows as a spiritual lesson in death and bereavement. Even our grieving, as the book details, is but a lesson of learning in which we will be rewarded for in the eternal and beautiful hereafter. The authors also touch on several universal and deep principles, such as "everything that ever happens to us" has Divine purpose and order behind it; and all suffering and hardships are but steps toward a great reward in the hereafter; and, that life is really a journey of the soul, which continues in the hereafter.
I have had the blessing of a private reading with Mr. Anderson a little over a year ago. To say that it changed by life forever, would be an understatement. The hour that I spent in the reading with him was the most life-changing, phenomenal experience of my life. Truly I came away a different person experiencing a deep spiritual and psychological healing of grief. To have the blessing of a reading with him is truly a life-changing event.

I have read all the books from the so called "big" mediums, and most seem more intent on fame than their vocation. Not with George Anderson. There are not enough words to describe how well written, thoughtful, poignant and funny (yes, funny) the story that this man has crafted with the help of some sage advice from the spirits on the other side. This is a MUST HAVE for anybody who finds themselves living through disappointment, hopelessness or grief. This book will bring you hope. The spirits could not have found a more humble, kind and self effacing man to speak their wise words to.

When I lost my son in 1996 I grew to hate everything I was taught about religion and the meaning of life. I had the extraordinary good fortune to attend a seminar in Seattle, WA where my son came through. Ever the skeptic, I never even thought I would get to meet George Anderson, let alone have a reading, but my son came through with such force (and even his nickname, "paulimon" which knocked me out) to tell me not to give in to my hatred and to understand that we are only separated temporarily. My heart sang at the words George said. I thought he would be wisked away after the program, but he stayed there as plain as can be signing books and talking to people. I have watched ALL the psychics work, but this man is a living saint. The information was too specific to be a crock, and you need only to look at him to know this is no act. He is gifted beyond measure, and his words brought such joy to the people he did readings for that night. I bought this book for everyone I know who is in pain. It helped mine so much--I still struggle with my loss but the book is like a bandaid for the heart.
