James Van Praagh knew he was different from a young age. Not only could he see ghosts, but he could talk to them and interact with them. He realized that whereas some ghosts can be full of malice, others actively want to help the living. In this extraordinary book, he reveals lessons gleaned from his amazing encounters with the spirit realms. He explains what it is really like to see ghosts, how to recognize which sort of energies surround a person or place, ways to protect ourselves from negative presences, and techniques for becoming closer to those spirits who truly want to guide us. Uncovering the truth about the Other Side, "Ghosts Among Us" also shows us how to develop our psychic powers and how we can all transform our fears of the paranormal into a source of inner strength and support.
