This book sees Cheung teaming up with a professional medium to further promote her case that the afterlife is real, and that Angels are active in our world, throughout our lives, at all times.
“Prayer has incredible power and there have been scientific studies showing that patients who were prayed for had faster recovery times than those who were not” Considering that all matter (even our thoughts) consists of energy, it is entirely possible that this energy can be directed to achieve an outcome …” Amen to that!
“In other words, the brain may act as a sophisticated receiver to express consciousness, but it may not be its primary creator.”
“It was renewed physicist, inventor, futurist and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla who said, “If you want to understand the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.“
The book makes for a good and easy read. My only two complaints is that certain stories are repeated from the other book I read from said author: “An Angel Saved Me” by Theresa Cheung. which I find slightly puzzling when the author writes this: “Thousands of people have sent me such reports …”. The two women are also promoting a one-dimensional spiritual narrative void of negative forces: “In each and every case the messages from the other side are ones of comfort, hope and love …”
I also question why Cheung & Broad blindly believe the sincerity of the spirits that they get in touch with. If you believe that the world is made up of opposites then you’ll probably doubt their exclusively optimistic stance.
There are lots of reports and stories that go way back in time, documenting negatively charged “hauntings,” just to pick one supernatural phenomena. If one believes in the existence of Angels (as we’ve come to know them in pop-culture), then why not Demons?
Cheung & Broad presents a marketable narrative in line with The Map of Heaven – by Dr. Eben Alexander & Ptolemy Tompkins., a narrative that does not quite align with belief systems where you have to behave in order to please the supreme chieftain-Deity. The CEO of Celestial Inc. is nowhere to be found within current new-age literature, as you’ll be loved regardless of who you are and what you do. There is no hierarchical celestial order, so it is certainly very different from belief systems where you are supposed to try your absolute best to be a good person by internalizing certain values (or else!).
Thou shall not fear Celestial Inc.’s invisible enforcement agents; because all is light, and all is good – all the time! I wish I could believe in this friendly, open, tolerant, narrative – but I do not. Where there is light, there will be dark – that is what I believe anyway!
It can also be a possibility that “the force” disguises itself as “familiar” or “relatable” if it feels a desire or a need to intervene. This aligns with old myths, even Christianity, where an Avatar is needed (like an interface) to interact with humanity. If this technique is valid in real-life, then why not put on the mask of familiar individuals in the after-life as well? In theory it would make sense; but that of course hinges on whether you believe or not. And whether you believe that our creator can access his invention and design whenever “it” desires to do so.
I guess human beings have to believe that they are in the driver’s seat at all times. If this is what people want to believe, then I can certainly understand the appeal of books such as these, since there are no rules, nor spooky entities to enforce them!
Some selected quotes from the work:
“It breaks my heart when people tell me that their early signs of psychic potential were laughed at or repressed by their family.” Yes, thank you Theresa for putting yourself out there promoting something that is not meant to be discussed in our enlightened high-tech age! ❤
“Whenever love is strong between two people it can cross the veil of death,”
“Something with an awareness of future events intervened to give her a warning.”
” …we are all connected. Science attests to this and there is also the theory that time isn’t linear and that there is no past, present or future, just our perception.”
“There is a possibility that our thoughts and feelings can cross the boundaries of time and space, life and death.”
” …many NDEs occur when a person has a flat EEG, meaning they are brain dead, but if they have enough brain activity to produce a hallucination it would be registered by the EEG. Also, a dying brain or delirium are not convincing explanations as these would not be recalled as a positive experience or a spiritual turning point.”
“There is no conclusive proof that OBEs originate in the brain – in my opinion, they, like NDEs and night visions and all afterlife encounters (including the next story), are evidence that a part of us exists separate from our body and mind and that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. All those who have been through such events say they are incredibly powerful and a rich source of spiritual awakening.”
“…so the next time you wake up feeling tired for no reason, perhaps you will have been on a spiritual assignment in your sleep. Such a wonderful thought that when we are asleep we all have the potential to become angels.”
“...wisdom is “downloaded” into the mind of the medium and then written down or spoken, just in the same way you would if following dictation.”
“The language of the spirit is universal and therefore there are no language barriers with mediumship.”
“In my experience, problems with grief arise when people get stuck in it.”
“Holding emotional grief inside of you undealt with only leads to health problems further down the line…”
“Thoughts are energy, and when we attend to and direct them decisively, they have the power to create our future, promote healing, shape our world and travel deep within the universe.”
“Many people have lost faith in the power of prayer because they’re either turned off by the religious connotations or feel their prayers go unanswered. The likely reason for this is that the very act of asking for something you want or need draws the experience of wanting or needing to you. Your words and the power behind your words – your intentions – matter. A more effective prayer should create the experience of having and being, but many people struggle to achieve this.“
