Ever since she was a child, CharMargolis saw, heard, and felt things that were beyond the tangible, explainable world. As she became aware of her psychic gift, she realized several profound truths: we don't die, we don't have to fear death; our loved ones are waiting for us when we pass over; we can communicate and receive messages from the other side. Now, in this remarkable and inspiring book, Char tells her story and delivers, through powerful anecdotes, this message of wisdom and love.

Publisher's Weekly Review

A veteran of talk shows who has been interviewed by Barbara Walters, Sally Jesse Raphael and Geraldo Rivera, among others, Margolis has been giving psychic readings for 25 years. Here she provides examples of her psychic successes along with encouragement to those seeking to tap into their own intuition and to make contact with deceased loved ones. Part guide to the spirit world, part psychic cheerleader, Margolis nevertheless offers down-to-earth suggestions for creating health and happiness by maintaining a positive attitude, avoiding negative persons and situations, making informed decisions and taking charge of one's life. Stating that "Life is a school and we've been put here to learn certain lessons," Margolis urges readers to use their experiences to lead them to their soul mates and to satisfying careers and healing. If her involvement in cases like Dean Paul Martin's disappearance and various police investigations has catapulted her into the limelight (and she clearly uses these examples as proof of her psychic abilities), Margolis also focuses on ways in which individuals without any obvious psychic gifts can become attuned to subtle physical, mental and emotional warning signs of trouble. Indeed, the book is so rooted in common sense that it reads more like a self-help book than like some titles that depend on much bolder claims about the psychic abilities of an author. (Sept.)

Library Journal Review

Despite the title, this book is not about the power of prayer. Rather, it is about cultivating your psychic ability to contact loved ones beyond the grave. Margolis, a psychic instructor and lecturer, presents enough anecdotes about her own psychic powers to turn any skeptic into a believer. This how-to book, however, falls short of its goal. Margolis offers a step-by-step guide to tapping into your intuitive powers, but the results of following her advice have more to do with reading people, feeling their emotions, and paying attention to "gut reactions" than with contacting the dead. To her credit, Margolis does warn readers about unscrupulous psychics and the necessity of acting from personal choice rather than others' advice, whether it be your dead grandmother or your psychic. She also does a good job of explaining what to expect when developing your psychic powers. Purchase where demand on this subject matter is high.Ă„Marija Sanderling, Rochester P.L., NH (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
