"Contacting spirit guides is as old as civilization itself. Shamans dating back to at least 50,000 B.C. ritualistically contacted nonphysical entities. The Mystery Schools of Ancient Egypt, Greece, Persia, Rome, and India also dealt with contacting spirit guides.
Every major religion acknowledges the reality of discarnate entities or spirits, whether they are called saints, angels, the Holy Spirit, and so on. One of the purposes of this book is to demystify this process.
The media's depiction of spirit contact has led to the false assumption that anyone who establishes this contact must be in great danger. In reality, this communication is natural, relatively simple, and a wonderful growth experience.
Spirit communication removes the fear of death and bereavement, and results in a form of spiritual empowerment. Contacting your spirit guides can help us:
Develop your intuition and other psychic abilities.
Increase your ability to love yourself and others.
Become more aware of the workings of the universe.
Establish better contact with your own Masters and Guides and Higher Self to facilitate your own spiritual evolution.
Protect you from negative entities and/or other forces in the universe.
Access the wisdom of the ancients.
Establish and maintain your own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
Overcome bad habits and fears.
Eliminate the fear of death.
See into the future.
Master the art of out-of-body experiences.
