Unlike any other book Browne has published, AFTERLIVES OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS addresses both the lives and the afterlives of forty celebrities weve loved and lost. Sylvia has written before about what transpires after death, but this is by far the most complete picture shes ever painted. Best of all, shes giving us another intimate glimpse of cherished lives we thought wed lost. Alternately moving and rollicking, this is one read thats truly impossible to put down! Following an introduction explaining how Sylvia communicates with her spirit guide, Francine, AFTERLIVES OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS explains exactly what happens to our spirits when our bodies stop living, from the legendary tunnel to a description of the Other Side itself and what our lives are like there to a few alternative destinations we might happen to choose--the Left Door, the Holding Place and the world of Ghosts/Earthbounds, each of which is represented among the celebrities chosen for this particular book. Sylvia then brings to life the celebrities themselves--brief biographies to personalize them and to lend important context to current events from the Other Side. Sylvia shares whatever information our celebrities care to discuss, from regrets to private thoughts to where and whom they continue to visit on earth to whether or not they intend to incarnate again, as a few of them already have. Celebrities featured include: Elvis Presley, (Princess) Diana Spencer, Patrick Swayze, Anna Nicole Smith, Brittany Murphy, Heath Ledger, Rock Hudson, Spencer Tracy, Walter Cronkite, Natalie Wood, Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe, Paul Newman, Farrah Fawcett, Clark Gable, Cary Grant, George Harrison, Michael Jackson, Johnny Carson, John Lennon-- File Size: 8MB.
However, at times, Sylvia lets us know with emphasis that she wasn't a fan of some of the famous people she has written about, so they turn into half-assed I-Think-They-Were-Ok-Fics. I liked that they all seemed to get to live in a little house by themselves and have little I often enjoy the secret pleasure of psychics memoirs or books of the afterlife and have read a few of Sylvia Brownes ones.
And this was from Sylvia's view point. Walter Cronkite is an astronomer, and lectures along with Carl Sagan to souls who will eventually reincarnate as astronauts.
The Hall of Wisdom: a Romanesque structure of gleaming white stone adorned with statuary and surrounded by fountains and fragrant flowers in constant bloom.
So far I've learned that Paul Newman is continuing his philanthropic work, and Marilyn Monroe welcomed Joe DiMaggio when he came Home. One celeb she wrote about, Sammy Davis Jr, was involved with Anton Levey's Church of Satan for a while. Additionally, an informative description on a multiple number of celebrities are featured that give information on their lives such as: Walter Cronkite, John Kennedy Jr. The pros; Sylvia Browne gives rich detail of the heavenly landscapes that some of the celebrities apparently transitioned to in a way that even a novice when it comes to visualization can easily imagine physical descriptions of the worlds she is referring to.
what rock have I been under?
I was happy to read that Kathryn Hepburn and Spencer Tracy are soul mates and are enjoying their time together.
What I didn't expect was the way it really makes you think about life and what's after.
Cary was enormously introspective about his trip to the Scanning Machine, interested to find out that he was angrier about his lifetime while he lived it than he was aware of at the time.
