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.

Format: Paperback
On Dragonfly Wings: A Skeptic's Journey to Mediumship by Daniela Norris, a former Israeli diplomat-turned-writer, is an intensely soulful book which will resonate with readers as it deals with three main issues confronting humanity: death, grief and the purpose and meaning of life. Author Daniela Norris was a total stranger until mid-March. Our conversations, however short, started after having been brought together by On Dragonfly Wings, which is a simple and short book yet incredibly powerful and insightful in its content. It took me just under three hours to finish the book but was compelled to search all over again for the chapters and sections that I wanted to revisit.

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.

I decided that after 2 years (my mother died in March 2012), it was time to be reborn as a person. This has meant letting go of the past, and freeing myself from commitments such as tutoring for the Writers Bureau and dog boarding. I chose as my symbol, the dragonfly. They spend the first part of their lives crawling through mud in the bottom of ponds then change into creatures of light and beauty. I bought a pendant shaped like a dragonfly as a gift to remind myself of this change. Making changes is hard. People don't always like the new 'you' but change is necessary if we are to grow. I wanted to share what some people may see as a coincidence, but which I see as a sign that I'm doing the right thing.
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.

I am highly sceptical about hypnotic regression and organised mediumship but there is a certain appeal about Daniela Norris’s writing that draws you into ‘On Dragonfly Wings: a sceptic’s journey to mediumship’. Unlike the usual catalogue of inexplicable otherworldly happenings, this book is beautifully written and certainly not about fluffy characters who have seen ghosts or spirits since childhood of the Doris Stokes variety. The descriptive background is painted for us like passages from a novel but there is an instant rapport with the deep sense of loss on the death of a younger brother – a tank commander who dies in a drowning accident. This is the author’s story about how and why she embarked on a voyage of discovery in an attempt to find out what really happens when we die. I can’t say that I finished the book as a convert but there are some truly thought-provoking moments, especially if you are one of those people who believe that our dead are always with us. Highly recommended.

This riveting book reads like a thriller, and it’s an engrossing introduction to the spiritual world of reincarnation, eternal souls, past-life encounters, hypnosis, meditation, shamans, dowsers, mediums, pendulums, auras and energy fields.

Interwoven is the touching story of a woman who discovers her personal path after the death of her younger brother. It all starts when she realises the brother is present right next to her in the days after his passing.

Tragic death gives way to the glorious birth of a third, unexpected child. The story unfolds like an ancient mythical cycle of death and renewal.

This book is pacey – you read it in one sitting. It’s down-to-earth (yes, really), informative and intensely moving. A complete success.

A beautifully written account of the events in Daniela Norris's very interesting life, that led to her interest in the spirit world and her training as a regression therapist. There is also a section giving instructions on how to see auras and use a pendulum. This is a pleasant read that, if you are one of those who believes this life is all there can be, just may cause you to wonder whether there could possibly be more.
