Due to his gifted skills to communicate with the souls who have crossed over to heaven, James Van Praagh has relayed the messages from these children to their parents as well as other parents who have lost their child (when that child is still young) to understand: after leaving behind the body in this world, that soul still lives on, studies, then advances to the higher level together with other loving souls such as grandparents and relatives who crossed over before that soul. That soul will be protected by these loving souls, will never feel lonely, and will be guided by the Master Spirits in order to evolve to the next higher level. This understanding will help parents to reduce the pain of losing a child when that child is very young.
The author also shows parents how to communicate with the soul of their young child by using a method called "automatic handwriting." The parent will need to make an appointment with the soul; on the day and at the exact time of the apointment, the parent will need to go into a quiet room, turn off the TV and the phones, sit down with a paper and a pen on the table. The parent will need to relax the body and allow the hand to freely move. After the session is over, the parent will know that the message truly comes from the soul of the child who passed away.
James Van Praagh also reveals that there are four types of soul: Young Sould, Old Soul, (James emphasizes that it has nothing to do with age), Mature Soul, and Angel Soul.
Young Soul: lives heavily on feelings, loves to harm/vex others, and depends heavily on materials.
Old Soul: still lives and depends on materials but orients himself/herself more towards a spiritual life. This person loves to research and study about spiritual life, begins to guide other people, and loves to serve other human beings.
Mature Soul: this person is normally a master, a philosopher, someone who guides the society/a big crowd to advance spiritually to the higher level.
Angel Soul: Someone whose voice, opinions, or actions influences the whole world (e.g. The Pope, The Dalai Lama). Their activities always aim at serving mankind and the whole world. From the time of birth, these souls already cultivate to walk the path of a Spiritual Leader.
In summary, this book is very essential in order to help us understand life on the other side. It is a very efficacious guide for both parent and child. It provides healing to the grieving parents who never stop thinking about their departed young children. It is an account of true stories and uplifting messages of love.
