Blessings from the Other Side : Wisdom and Comfort from the Afterlife for This Life
At many times keeping our lives in perspective is difficult for anyone, but it is especially hard around the holidays. We become overwhelmed and forget what really matters. What should be a time of celebration and reflection turns into a time of stress that has little to do with spirituality. Now, world-renowned psychic Sylvia Browne has put together a beautiful inspirational book to help readers get into the spirit of the holidays by reminding them of the joy and love that surrounds us in the Afterlife. With chapters on Forgiveness, Celebrations and Anniversaries, Family, and Life's Purpose, among others, Sylvia Browne tells uplifting stories of those people she has helped and imparts the indelible lessons of the Other Side that can make our life here on Earth happier, healthier, and more spiritually fulfilling.

Excerpt from Blessings from the Other Side by Sylvia Browne
I've been asked more than once, "Sylvia, if you're so convinced that we never die, and you can see and hear spirits on The Other Side, why would you of all people grieve?" The answer is "Because I'm selfish, I'm human, and I'm here."
Grief is the ultimate pain, the most hollow, numbing, paralyzing, hopeless, helpless aching on earth. It is a lone leaf blowing lost and futile in an empty doorway, an irreversible finality. When we're in its cruel grip, we would give anything anything to make it go away, to have everything back the way it was before this darkness came, when we had problems we could fix and options that we had some say in, if we could only remember what it was like to feel something besides such a stunning, overwhelming void.
I've been there. So have you. So has everyone on earth, which makes it even harder to imagine why we're not more universally compassionate toward each other. In fact, part of the unique depth of grief is its awful familiarity, because the truth is, it's an inevitable sorrow in our spirit from the moment we enter the womb.
Arriving in Grief
With the rare exception of those who only choose to spend one lifetime here, our spirits make the round-trip from The Other Side to earth over and over again in the course of eternity, at our own insistence, in pursuit of our greatest spiritual potential and service to God. Our lives at Home are busy, stimulating, euphoric, surrounded by exquisite beauty, friends, soul mates, Angels, and messiahs, thriving in God's awesome, palpable presence. It takes courage and enormous commitment for us to decide we need the tough challenges only life on earth can provide, and to leave a paradise of unconditional love for this place where lasting love of any kind is a scarce commodity. On The Other Side, we understand that eternity eliminates the concept of time altogether, and when we leave Home we know we'll be back again in the blink of an eye. But here, where we measure our lives by linear days, weeks, months, and years, that "blink of an eye" seems like an eternity itself or, in our darkest nights, that awful word never.
