Product Description


Peter Shires was an agnostic. For over 30 years, he believed that life started at birth and ended with death. After an unusual set of circumstances, he found out that as he held a pen loosely in his hand it appeared to write on its own. Once he overcame his fear he was able to accept that he had an unusual ability, that he was 'gifted' with what is known as 'automatic writing'. What came about was a series of spontaneous teachings by two divine beings, Wilhelm and John. Peter was opened up as a channel and asked to pass on important information, intended for everyone. The knowledge and understanding that Peter received was enough to change his life and subsequently the lives of others. Through word of mouth, this manuscript has been photocopied and passed around from person to person for the last 20 years. From the hundreds of letters received, we know that it has brought solace and comfort to those in need and those interested in reincarnation and curious about the 'life hereafter'. It has helped those who are bereaved, feeling lost and in search of reassurance and answers.

This personal account by Peter Shires and the teachings that followed will help you to unravel the 'mystery' of life and find out more about yourself.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, short and sweet 3 Aug 2001
By A Customer
...As I read it I realised that I had read it before, a long time ago during my teens when I was developing my mediumistic abilities through Spiritualism. Did I see one of the photocopied copies referred to on the back cover? I think perhaps I did. I also remembered doing an experiment with a school friend of mine in a new flat rented by her mother and step-father, she was convinced it was haunted so we thought we would try to find out why. She held an exercise book and pencil for the automatic writing part, whilst I mediated to give the 'haunt' energy to move it. Well that worked! Sue got so frightened by the pencil writing mad circles across the page, that she shrieked and ran from the room, leaving me there alone in fairly deep meditation. Needless to say I was very annoyed with her as I do not like being left alone in haunted rooms whilst meditating or contacting spirits in any way. I like a control to be there - even at the age of fourteen I preferred to have living human help!
So what has that little tale got to do with reviewing this book. Well, we would not have tried the experiment in automatic writing had I not previously read this work! So any of you younger lads and lassies out there do not get involved with automatic writing unless you really want to be able to do it, you may find yourself able to contact the spirit world!
Back to the book, it was interesting to re-read it after all these years. This time I concentrated on Wilhelm and John's messages rather than the technique of automatic writing. I found some of the messages profound and some irrelevant to my own life.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Books on this Subject 28 Sep 2005
By Katie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"A Beginner's Guide to Life After Death" was written through automatic writing. The author, Peter Shires, received communication through several "spirits", 2 of whom shared a great amount of information re: life both here, and on the "other side".

Much of the information concerns "universal laws" - how they work, and how they impact us. Two of the "laws" covered are that of cause and effect, and karma - however several others are discussed as well.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in spirituality & after-death communications. It's an easy read, and yet is filled to the brim with great spiritual insights. A word of caution though - an open mind is a must!
