Man oh man, for someone who has had a few paranormal experiences, this was a most validating book. For anyone who thinks ESP does exist, this is your book. And for those who don't I guarantee you you need to read this book of this woman who can actually get in touch with spirits who have passed over. My brother who died violently in 1982 came back to me twice, and I absolutely guarantee you there is a haven after we die where much healing is done as Rosemary Altea explains. Our loved ones do watch over us.

This book was awsome. It is one of the best books i've ever read. My mind was running through most of the book as I found it so wonderful, I wanted to keep going back and reading pages over and over again to devour all that was printed.

My favorite quote from this book:

There is no magic potion that I or you can take that gives us wisdom. Only our experiences will teach us and then, only if we are truly willing to learn. We can read a million books whose words inspire us, will help to point us in a certain direction. But only experience can give us true meaning to the written word.

To Learn - To Grow

"Look Within"

I recommend this book, Rosemary Altea has a wonderful writing style and shares the wisdom she has received throughout her life and her work. She has helped many clients and shares the wisdom of their stories in an entertaining manner.

I look forward to reading anything else that is published by her.

Another pack of lies from a phony "psychic," preying on the hopes and fears of grieving, too-trusting people.

Here's one video that catches her cheating--

While many may read this and think it made-up, which the author firmly addresses can be the case, her level of detail makes it clear to her clients that what she sees is real. This is truly a wonderful book with many lessons on how to live compassionately. The author often shows her less than compassionate side and describes experiences that bring her to a more loving way of perceiving and behaving. I know that there is something after this life based on my personal experiences. When my grandmother passed, she spoke to all her sisters and brothers who'd gone before; it was obvious she was not alone at death. When my husband's brother was a boy and died momentarily in surgery, he explained to his mother that he'd "seen Grandpa" and "he had legs!"; the last time he'd seen him was in the casket. It's wonderful to think that our loved ones are still nearby in so many ways, that they know we care for them and grieve for them and want us to be happy knowing they are still growing and happy and that we will see them again.
The author's journey to becoming a medium is interesting and she fully shows her own disbelief and doubts throughout the process.
The only detraction would be a slight bit of repetitiveness and focus on the bad things that had happened to her. Perhaps this helps others to hear multiple times how she knows this may seem unbelievable or it may help others to hear over and again the details of the horrors she encountered through her life; perhaps there is a message that "you too can overcome the horrors in your life". But it gave a bit of a victim mentality to the reading which I don't believe the author truly has.
Overall, an interesting read with lots of great stories of people finding peace with their relatives who'd passed from life on the earth plane.

It was a good read. It kept me interested. This author's writing always seems a little (what is a nice way to say it) "uppity" and it detracts from her work, in my opinion. Hopefully it isn't that way for you. She is an amazing woman.

This is an excellent book! I couldn't stop listening. In general, this book is about Rosemary's struggle to understand her psychic abilities (& her fear that she was in some way crazy); the process she went through in developing these special skills; and the wonderful insights she's gained along the way. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interesed in psychic abilities &/or spirituality as a whole. An open mind is needed to benefit from the insights brought forth.
