The Other Side and Back: A Psychic's Guide to Our World and Beyond

by Sylvia Browne Lindsay Harrison

"Psychic, Medium, Clairvoyant, Channel-these are all words to describe Sylvia Browne''s unique powers. I''ve personally witnessed her bring closure to distraught families, help the police close cases, and'open people''s hearts to help them see the good within themselves. "-Montel WilliamsFor anyone who has felt an angel''s presence, experienced a premonition, feared death, or wished for one more moment with a deceased loved one comes THE OTHER SIDE AND BACK: A Psychic''s Guide to Our World and Beyond. Renowned psychic and spiritual teacher Sylvia Browne has made believers out of millions. Now, in THE OTHER SIDE AND BACK, the New York Times bestselling author reveals the ways in which psychic energy works in our world, how it affects our everyday lives, and how anyone can tap into its power. Inspired by the most frequently asked questions during her thousands of readings and public appearances, THE OTHER SIDE AND BACK offers and unprecedented and comprehensive look at how the afterlife affects this life. Browne has produced a guidebook for those who want to deepen their spiritual and religious beliefs by understanding psychic energy and how it works in our world. Determined to help her readers understand how the soul survives death and why it is reborn many times, she offers a deeply personal account of how each of us can develop an understanding of "The Other Side" and how we can put it to work in our lives. As a child, Browne realized she had been provided with the psychic gift of being able to perceive a different "vibrational frequency," allowing her to communicate with angels and spirits that inhabit "The Other Side," which she describes as a place of tremendous beauty and limitless knowledge. Contrary to most peoples'' concept of "heaven," this spirit world is not an imaginary place far off somewhere beyond the stars, Browne explains. Rather, it is a very real place -- another dimension superimposed on our own world. In THE OTHER SIDE AND BACK, Browne provides the comforting knowledge that we are never truly alone because we each have spirit guides -- loved ones from "The Other Side" -- who protect us. She offers advice on how to pray and how to ask our spirit guides for advice, and shows us that we must look inside ourselves and examine our relationships with others in order to interpret signs from the beyond that are evident in our everyday lives. Rather than relying on faith alone, Browne encourages us to understand the psychic world''s influence on our lives and use knowledge and reason to better understand our earthly mission and individual calling. Having spent 47 years as a spiritual teacher, Browne shares her many experiences giving spiritual readings for individuals struggling with their marriages, family relationships, grievances and illnesses in THE OTHER SIDE AND BACK. Stating that she is not psychic when it comes to her personal life, Browne also shares painful memories of her own failed marriages and abusive relationships. She offers advice on how to better understand the spiritual path we have led in our current and past lives in order to help overcome feelings of self-pity, rejection, abandonment and powerlessness that often result in disappointment and frustration. In THE OTHER SIDE AND BACK, Browne also provides detailed accounts of her investigations into paranormal activities that have brought her in close contact with souls from "The Other Side" -- in addition to making her the feature of television news reports on CBS and on "Evening Magazine" in Los Angeles. Explaining the difference between ghosts, spirits and angels, Browne also discusses why some souls seem to be trapped between our world and "The Other Side," and she explores the reasons why some choose to follow a path toward darkness and evil. Browne also illuminates the relevance of dreams and other experiences such as coincidence, deja vu and synchronicity as being possible glimpses into our past lives and into what we subconsciously know about "The Other Side. "With THE OTHER SIDE AND BACK, Sylvia Browne provides us wi...

How Stella Got Her Groove Back

by Terry Mcmillan

Stella Payne is forty-two, divorced, a high-powered investment analyst, mother of eleven-year-old Quincy- and she does it all. In fact, if she doesn't do it, it doesn't get done, from Little League carpool duty to analyzing portfolios to folding the laundry and bringing home the bacon. She does it all well, too, if her chic house, personal trainer, BMW, and her loving son are any indication. So what if there's been no one to share her bed with lately, let alone rock her world? Stella doesn't mind it too much; she probably wouldn't have the energy for love - and all of love's nasty fallout - anyway. But when Stella takes a spur-of-the-moment vacation to Jamaica, her world gets rocked to the core - not just by the relaxing effects of the sun and sea and an island full of attractive men, but by one man in particular. He's tall, lean, soft-spoken, Jamaican, smells of citrus and the ocean - and is half her age. The tropics have cast their spell and Stella soon realizes she has come to a cataclysmic juncture: not only must she confront her hopes and fears about love, she must question all of her expectations, passions, and ideas about life and the way she has lived it. Told in Stella's own exuberant, dead-on, dead honest voice, How Stella Got Her Groove Back is full of Terry McMillan's signature humor, heart, and insight. More than a love story, it is ultimately a novel about how a woman saves her own life - and what she must risk to do it. .

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

by Ken Kesey

A fiftieth-anniversary edition of Ken Kesey's searing American classic. Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Turning conventional notions of sanity and insanity on their heads, the novel tells the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her. We see the story through the eyes of Chief Bromden, the seemingly mute half-Indian patient who witnesses and understands McMurphy's heroic attempt to do battle with the powers that keep them all imprisoned. Hailed upon its publication as "a glittering parable of good and evil" (The New York Times Book Review) and "a roar of protest against middlebrow society's Rules and the invisible Rulers who enforce them" (Time), Kesey's powerful book went on to sell millions of copies and remains as bracing and insightful today as when it was first released. This new deluxe hardcover edition commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the original publication of the novel on February 1, 1962, and will be a must have for any literature lover. .

Why Beautiful People Have More Daughters

by Alan S. Miller Satoshi Kanazawa

Now available in paperback-a provocative new look at biology, evolution, and human behavior "as disturbing [as it is] fascinating" (Publishers Weekly). Why are most neurosurgeons male and most kindergarten teachers female? Why aren't there more women on death row? Why do so many male politicians ruin their careers with sex scandals? Why and how do we really fall in love? This engaging book uses the latest research from the field of evolutionary psychology to shed light on why we do the things we do-from life plans to everyday decisions. With a healthy disregard for political correctness, Miller and Kanazawa reexamine the fact that our brains and bodies are hardwired to carry out an evolutionary mission- an inescapable human nature that actually stopped evolving about 10,000 years ago.

The Cloudspotter's Guide

by Gavin Pretor-Pinney

'The clouds are nature's poetry, and the most egalitarian of her displays, since everyone has an equally fantastic view of them. Clouds are for dreamers, and their contemplation benefits the soul. Yet their beauty is so everyday as to be in danger of being overlooked . . . ' Gavin Pretor Pinney is the chairman and founder member of the Cloud Appreciation Society. He contends that we are blessed in this country with a uniquely rich and varied cloudscape, which has hitherto been sadly undervalued. His book teaches us to appreciate their different varieties - the cumulus, nimbostratus and Morning Glory to name only a few - and all their beauties and significances, both meteorological and cultural. We learn how Hindus believed the cumulus clouds were the spiritual cousins of elephants, how thermal air currents act on fair weather cumuli, and how to save a fortune in psychiatric bills by using the clouds as Rorschach images that reflect our state of mind as well as nature's moods. Looking up will never be the same again.
