EDUCATIONAL BOOKS ABOUT THE PARANORMAL
I must say that, to date, my favorite book is Ghosts Among Us by James VanPraagh. Why? Because following my personal experience of a Dream Visit from my father who died when I was eight, I needed information, badly. I’m grateful to be able to say that I found James VanPraagh. Upon reading his book Ghosts Among Us, I finally, after all these years, experienced a total sense of peace regarding my father’s death. I finally understood that our loved ones never really leave us at all; but that when they pass, they simply shed the human body because they no longer are in need of it; the same way that we who reside in the north shed our winter coat when spring arrives because we are no longer in-need of it.
Because I am a firm believer that there is good and godliness in the world, by the same token there is evil that exists. There are authors of books who themselves chose to become involved with evil. In my opinion, their books are likely to have been written with a hidden agenda. Personally, I do not purchase books that explain rituals. I particularly avoid books that explain ‘dark rituals’ and/or ‘rituals used in Satanism’. Why? I simply don’t want to clutter my mind with anything that I consider to be ‘negative’.
Everything we read creates an imprint on our minds, like it or not. I urge you to research each author that interests you by “Googling” their name and you will learn all you need to know about them. Thus, I would (and I always do) use caution in selecting educational books on the subject of the paranormal.
