Mankind has long sought to understand the mysteries of the afterlife and communicate with lost loved ones. As we increase our understanding of the human soul and our place within the universe, we can learn how to make this connection. World renowned spirit medium James Van Praagh brings us one step closer to heaven by resolving our concerns of the afterlife and offers a bridge to reconnect hearts and souls across the veil.

Everyone radiates an energy pattern that can be perceived as an aura. Before offering soul readings to a live studio audience, James Van Praagh explains how you can detect and read this energy from other people as well as discover your own energy.

S1:Ep2 - Miracles
Every day, people talk about miracles but don’t really understand what they are. Some are big, some are small and all of them are a part of our everyday life. James Van Praagh explains, before a live studio audience, how to acknowledge your miracles and how you can reach out with your awareness to recognize when a spirit has come to share your space.

Death is simply a change in energy from one form to another. However, we can carry the burdens of our life into the spirit realm if we do not learn to let them go.

Whether we know it or not, each one of us manifests every aspect of our lives, every day. However, the things we bring forth may not be wanted or useful. These unwanted manifestations can even sabotage our best made plans.

Just like death and taxes, another thing that is guaranteed in this life is the presence of spirit guides.

S1:Ep10 - Psychic Abilities
Each one of us holds the seed of psychic ability deep within the psyche. We call it intuition. It helped our ancient ancestors stay alive and it can help guide you through everyday life.
