This is the story of leading psychic, Sylvia Browne's life. She recalls her gift as a very young child, young woman, and her struggles with her gift in her everyday married life--often to men who did not believe in her gift. She tells how her gifts have assisted police departments in their search for missing children and dangerous criminals. She discusses her beliefs about God, death, and the after life and how she brought these beliefs into the creation of her own religion she calls "Novus Spiritus." Her insight provides some understanding into how we can be better people in this life, understanding ourselves and others. There are two guided meditations provided that she often uses in groups, and one of these is one she uses to help guide her into meditation.
I believe she is one of the truly gifted psychics that are born, much like Jeane Dixon was during my mother's young womanhood of the sixties.
Sylvia Browne has been featured on Montel Williams and the Sally Jessy Raphael Show, Entertainment Tonight, CNN, and others.
If you are interested in learning more about psychics and whether they are for real or not, you must read this book. Sylvia shares her own life through this book and gives an understanding of the life of a psychic.
Facinating read! This book gives a lot of background on Sylvia and how she came to be as infamous as she is. I couldn't put it down and read it cover to cover in one day.
The book takes you from her early childhood to the period in her life when this particular book was written. It tells why she changed her name from Sylvia Brown to Sylvia Browne (just a little trivia!). It is very personal and delves deep into her personal life.
I had seen Sylvia on Montel and was always very taken by her. This was the first one of her books I had read and I have to say, it really made an impression.
Whether you believe what she believes or not, she gives you an insight into her world. I have to admit, reading it helped me refine some of my beliefs. I enjoyed reading it very much.
As someone who has experienced quite a few "unexplained" occurrences, I had high hopes for Sylvia Browne and her writings. I've read several of her books now, and am convinced she's a fraud. This is an interesting read, and I do like the way she writes, just remember that if you are looking for authentic psychic phenomena, she's not the one to read.

After forcing myself to read this book from cover to cover, I came up with a very simple conclusion... Sylvia Browne is a wack job!! I'm sorry!! I'm not trying to be mean, or anything, but this was like reading the memiors of a women suffering from a multi-personality disorder!! A complete waste of my time ... except it did make me laugh a few times!! :)
Sylvia Browne is a complete fraud, who has been caught in outrageous and hurtful lies time and time again. See the following website for a full revelation of her shameful dishonesty: http://stopsylvia.com/home/.

In this uniquely fascinating book, internationally renowned psychic Sylvia Browne recounts her captivating life as a clairvoyant, telling of her earliest "readings" as a young child in Kansas City, and of her first contact with "Francine," her spirit guide.
In engrossing detail, Sylvia tells how her gift has assisted police departments in their search for missing children and dangerous criminals- and how her predictions of deaths, plane crashes, and momentous world events were sometimes heeded- or tragically ignored.
But more than anything else, this is the remarkable story of one woman's psychic odyssey, for it offers illuminating insight into how we can better understand ourselves and our own psychic abilities!
