Product Description


One of the best books of this genre to cross my desk in some time; its easy style will be of equal appeal to experienced readers and newcomers to spiritual matters alike -- Psychic News

Product Description

“I died in the Battle of the Somme...” These were the astonishing first words spoken to clairvoyant and healer Stephen Turoff by the soul of James Legett, a young soldier who was killed in the First World War. For two years, the world famous psychic surgeon communicated with the soldier’s soul, and in the process wrote down his remarkable story; not the tale of Legett’s tragically short life on the physical plane, but of his death on a battlefield in France and his soul’s subsequent journey into the afterlife. Although he works with many discarnate spirits in his clinic, the dyslexic Turoff was initially reluctant to undertake the task of writing a book. But he was persuaded by the boisterous and genial soul of the dead man. Their literary collaboration involved an unusual method: Legett presented spiritual pictures to Turoff, who with clairvoyant perception interpreted them into words. The result is this enlightening testimony of life beyond the illusion of death, filled with insight, spiritual wisdom and delightful humour. It is written to show that we are all eternal; there is no death... only change.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 27 May 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is something of an oddity. Though a fairly enjoyable read, it leaves you with the impression of a missed opportunity.

The spirit of the physically deceased First World War soldier, James Legett, comes across as a simple, decent, yet rather accepting fellow. He has a tendency, as you might expect of a soldier conditioned by war, to accept what he is told and asked to do, no questions asked. Although this may be beneficial to Legett's spiritual development it's of debatable value to the reader searching for answers.

For example, on one occasion Legett asks his spiritual guide, Chan, about the nature of reincarnation. He is then whisked off to a very brief and extremely unintelligible lecture on the subject. Emerging afterwards, Legett, (rather like this reader) says that most of it went `over his head', but instead of asking more questions, simply lets the matter lie.

Elsewhere, there are aspects of the spiritual existence described that are very hard to swallow. Are we really to believe, for example, that Shakespeare is still writing plays for public entertainment, some 400 years after his death?! (This prompts the questions as to whether actors continue their vocation in the afterlife and more worryingly whether we will have to endure the eternal curse of celebrity?!)

Also, that existence on the fifth astral plane is, for at least some inhabitants, so thoroughly bland - little detached cottages in a quaint English-style countryside, where people potter around in their gardens and occasionally `spoil themselves' with a cup of tea!

I was also disappointed that very little information was provided to explain how the book was written. We are told that Legett sent Turoff information in the form of symbolic imagery.

From the narrow mind of a first world war soldier, the creation of his astral existence is a mirror image of "middle England" with the attainment of quaint country cottages, the occasional pets and regular Sunday morning Church service.
Curiously enough when his mother died, she went straigh to the next level, which Jim Legget took many years of hard work to quilify to enter.
Such inconsistencies have really spoilt it for me. What could have been a valuable contribution to the debate about the shape and form of the existence after death has once more left me with a hollow feeling.
My reaction is, that we will create the astral existence, once we move on based on the limiting forms and concepts which govern the level of our awarenss during this lifetime.
The telling of the afterlife as for instance in the "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramahansa Yogananda is the astral creation of a totally different continuation, much richer and deeper. As experienced by a more advanced, enlightened mind.
I dont want to make myself out as some kind of authority on the subject, but I am a healer and shaman and travel to some of these realms frequently on behalf of my clients, and just like to say, that the astral level is only the beginning, there is much, much more to come.
Perhaps this ties in nicely with the levels of consciousness as discussed by David R. Hawkins in Power vs Force?
But then I still like to thank Stephen Turoff for his contribution to the debate on the continuation of consciousness. Everything has its rightful place, and I am sure some people will find this book a revelation. Just this one is not the one for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Optimistic, Informative, Sane 2 Dec 2003
By A Customer
This is the story of the spirit of a 20 year old British soldier (James Legget) who died in the battle of the Somme. Legget - faced with insurmountable technical difficulties - contacts Turoff, a psychic surgeon living in the UK, to ask his help in communicating the story to us.
At first Legget is not aware that he has died, merely that his pain - and his wound - have gone.
He finds that he is tethered by a cord-like structure attached to a dark lump on the ground. It's not until two of his comrades appear and, ignoring his entreaties for help, carry off the lump - dragging him with them - that he begins to suspect that something is wrong.
To his surprise, he finds that death has not severed his connection with the military. There are astral officers, and astral barracks where he and many others are taken to recover from the trauma of their recent decease. Soon his spirit guide - an oriental called Chan - makes his appearance and introduces him to the wonders of astral living, including battles with dark entities who are (were) instrumental in encouraging the inhumanities inflicted in two world wars upon so many on the physical plane.
Legget learns that commuting is easier on the astral plane - "where man thinketh so is he" you might say. He's also shown two ways of cleansing the Aura . At one point he attends a lecture, given by an astral philosopher, which throws new light on the subject of reincarnation and which he, Legget, remembers verbatim.
This book is the best expose of life on the astral plane I've read - in that it paints an optimistic picture of what one can reasonably expect to experience after death, and shows that work, leisure and learning can be enjoyed on other planes than the physical.
