Product Description

Amazon Review

Perhaps there is so much fear of death in the modern world because there is so little understanding of the soul. Those nearing death are apprehensive or resigned; those bereaved struggle with their grief, by turns questioning, raging or retreating into a lonely numbness. The fears of the dying and the bereaved may result in an inability to let go--of the physical realm or of the deceased, so claim the authors of Soul Rescuers, who take as their starting point the concept that death is just a gateway from the physical to the non-physical realm.

A soul rescuer is a shaman, psychic, priest or mystic who heals and releases the trapped souls of the dead in order to guide them into the spirit realms. If that conjures up Hollywood images of exorcists crying, "crossing over into the light" while dodging flying household items and projectile ectoplasm, then this is the non-sensational guide to healing and dealing with the spirits of the dead, which offers a new understanding of a personal spiritual dimension. Terry and Natalia O'Sullivan have years of experience working with both the souls of the dead and the living, helping them to come to terms with death. In this beautiful book, they recall their experiences, suffusing the stories of the people with whom they have worked with a rich cross-cultural knowledge of beliefs and rituals of passing from Tibetan Buddhist belief in the emotional sensitivity of the recently departed (loud displays of emotion by those left behind can frighten it) to the practice of making a hole in the hut to allow for the passage of the spirit shared by the Hottentots of South Africa, the Fijans and the Native Americans. These fascinating belief systems and rituals are further layered with reflections upon death in philosophy, literature and the world's holy books.

However, the real meat of this thought-provoking book is the stories of hauntings, unquiet souls and the ways the authors have brought both the dead and the living from the darkness to the light. Throughout, the tone is remarkably level-headed and deeply compassionate. As a way to understanding a universal experience and as a guide on how to connect with ancestors, deal with hautings and conduct the simple rituals that can help heal the spirits of the dead, as well as the pain of the living, The Soul Rescuers is on every level an extraordinary book to return to again and again. --Fiona Buckland

Format: Paperback
Terry and Natalia Sullivan have written an excellent book on a subject often surrounded by cynicism and disbelief. Their style of writing is clear and accessible and with subjects covered as diverse as ancestral history, the afterlife, reincarnation, shamanism, spiritualism and different cultural traditions for helping the souls of the dead pass into their proper place (i.e., not remain earthbound), they present a fascinating challenge to the assumption that there is only dimension in life; the one we inhabit whilst alive. I felt sorry to come to the end of this book as I sense these two have a lot more to share than is covered in the book. Highly recommended!

Soul Rescuers: A 21st century guide to the spirit world A good book for the price and very in-depth reading for anyone who feels they have a calling for this spiritual work. A little 'heavy' and hard going at times for me, though it covers a good area of work for soul rescuers.

This is a readable and creditable account of the authors dealings with other entities in the psychic realm, notably dealing with the spirits of the departed. Many of us will have difficulty accepting the truth of what they describe, but most people should find this interesting.

This is a wonderful book, full of the authors obvious practical experiences in rescuing lost and bewildered souls. But the love of their work, and respect for Spirit really shines through. Recommended.
