Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Answers From Heaven
Answers from Heaven will be an authoritative, modern up to date classic book about afterlife communication.
Through true life stories of ordinary people who have had paranormal experiences, bestselling author Theresa Cheung and medium Claire Broad will show the various different ways that heaven is trying to answer our prayers, offer us comfort and provide proof of survival.
1. Messages from the other side
2. Dreams from heaven
3. Living and loving creatures in spirit
4. Love from above
5. Heaven is calling
6. Conversations from Spirit
7. Answers from higher realms
8. Is anybody there?
9. Your own answers from heaven.
By the end it is hoped that readers will have lost some of their fear of death, be more aware of when the spirit world is trying to contact them, have greater awareness of the scientific research available, understand that mediumship is an expression of eternal love and nothing to be feared and that it’s possible for us all to ask questions and receive answers from the world of spirit.
Messages from the other side
Those we loved never go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near…….anonymous
Although you may not be able to ‘hear’ or ‘see’ the afterlife, this doesn’t mean it isn’t real.
Have you ever suddenly changed your mind and done something amazing you never thought you would? That’s spirit inspiring you.
Have you ever strongly sensed that someone was behind you, only to turn around and there is no one there? That’s an angel watching over you.
Have you ever felt completely lost and then, for reasons you can’t explain, everything changes and you are filled with a sense of direction and purpose? That’s heaven sending you a message.
Have you ever felt alone and then a gentle breeze or a beautiful sunset or a smile or a stunning coincidence or just a simple change of heart from the inside out fills you with love and hope? Yes, spirit is reaching out to you again.
Have you ever lost your faith and doubted the existence of heaven and then rediscovered it when all hope felt lost? That’s how spirit works.
Spirit at work
In recent years I have on many occasions felt lost and alone and fiercely doubted that heaven is real. Sometimes there is a personal trigger for that doubt. For example, things in my life aren’t turning out as planned or I’m disappointed or hurt in some way, but more often than not the trigger isn’t personal but related to what I see happening in the world around me. Even as I type this, news is breaking of yet another inexplicable crime – in this case, the brutal murder of a seven- year- old girl.
My heart flies out to the mother and father and family of that innocent child, but I also can’t help but compare this horrific reality with the message of a spiritual life being one of unconditional love, light, beauty and joy. Where were the love, light, beauty and joy for this angel baby? Why would spirit allow this to happen? I try to shut the questions down, but the harder I try the more they scream at me. A seed of doubt has been sown and I am helpless to do anything about it. And as the doubts gather strength, my belief in the message I am trying to send the world weakens. I’ve devoted my entire life to researching and writing about the very real possibility that heaven exists in this life and the next. Yet almost every day the reality of hell on earth feels more likely. Perhaps those who don’t believe in heaven have got it right?
I’ve got an open mind and feel it is important for me as a spiritual writer to be aware of the beliefs of sceptics and atheists. I want to understand where they are coming from and, more often than not these days, I can actually see their point. I recently read a book called The God Impulse by Kevin Nelson, which argued that belief in heaven is simply something hard- wired into our DNA not because it is real but because it makes us feel better. According to Nelson there is absolutely no proof of an afterlife, but believing in spirit is something to be encouraged because it can bring comfort and strength and help us cope with grief. The argument that heaven is no more than a biological impulse is a logical one and on days when the voices of doubt are screaming at me I wonder if there might be something to it.
I’m hoping you haven’t been too shocked by my frank admission that I sometimes have great doubts about the existence of heaven. And you may wonder, after what I have just said, how it is possible for me to still fiercely champion the voice of spirit in the way I do and have done in my books and, more recently, online through my Facebook page, where visitors draw comfort and hope from my conviction that heaven is real. Admitting now that sometimes I lose that conviction could have devastating consequences, but I want to reassure you that if I ever reached the point where it felt dishonest to write my heaven books and run my page I would stop.
