About the Author
Daniela I. Norris, a former diplomat turned writer, lost her twenty-year-old brother in a drowning accident in May 2010. While feeling as much shock and grief as everyone else around her, she also felt something different. She felt that her brother Michael was not really gone. He was physically gone, but he was still around. That was when she embarked on a journey of learning and exploration, her very own skeptic's journey to mediumship. She lives near Geneva, Switzerland.

The section “How to 8: Assisting Death or Birth” brings back memories of the time when I was compelled to “assist.” After more than two and half years of moving in and out of hospital, my wife was literally reduced to a mere skeleton. Her treatment for cancer had failed. With four young daughters it was not easy. I had to leave my work and return home with my daughters. After relocating, finding new school for my daughters was the easy part, coping with the situation was not. I was becoming puny and weak. My wife was only concerned about me and my daughters. Surrounded by family members and my in-laws, she slipped in and out of consciousness, a number of times. On the day she left us, my mother-in-law approached me and said, “Send her! Tell her to go peacefully.”
It was almost noon. Holding her in my arms and looking into her sunken eyes I told my wife, “I love you. I’ll take good care of our daughters. But please, just take rest. Close your eyes, it’s time for you to sleep!” She did sleep, peacefully in my arms, never to open her eyes again.Read more ›
I don't spend much time on Facebook so it was pure chance that when I logged on recently, Daniela Norris was asking for people to read and review her book. When I saw the title, I simply had to read it.
It was so good, I read it in one sitting. I honestly can't recommend it highly enough. If you have any interest or curiosity about the spiritual side of life, you should get hold of a copy.
The book is not just a delight to read, it also contains plenty of practical experiments you can carry out – using dowsing rods, finding out the size of your own and other people’s energy fields, using a pendulum for guidance when facing decisions. There’s also a fascinating section about past lives. I could go on but it would be far better to simply let you read the book for yourself.
At this point I would like to mention that as an open minded person I never questioned the existence of spirituality, it just never happened for me to pursue any knowledge on these ideas or witness any presence of metaphysical power. What is great about this book is that it does not force things on you, rather lets things flow in a way that is natural. It is a light book and easy to read which introduces you to the world of mediumship through Daniela’s (the author) own experiences. It truly describes her paths from the beginning till the achievement of her Regression Therapy training, including the struggles she was facing. And even for the skeptic readers, being somehow a skeptic at the beginning herself, Daniela invites them to try on things and enjoy them. Concerning the aspect of death, which seems to be mentioned a lot, although primary, it is not dominant in a melancholic way but it is rather seen as the beginning and not the end. The death of Michael leads to the spiritual awareness of Daniela and eventually to the birth a new soul. The whole book signifies the circle of regeneration.Read more ›
