Michele Livingston channels the other side in new book "Living in the Afterlife"

CAMP HILL, Pa.  — Sunbury Press has released Living in the Afterlife – Experiences from the Soul Place, medium Michele Livingston’s latest book.

lita_fcAbout the Book:
Have you, a family member or a friend ever wondered about what it’s like after we leave this earth?

Do you know someone who is fearful of death?

Have you recently lost a dear loved one, or a pet and wonder where they are or what they are doing?

Michele A. Livingston is a spiritual medium endorsed by World Renowned Evidential Medium, James Van Praagh who calls her aTrance Channel. Using these abilities for Living in the Afterlife: Experiences from the Soul Place, Michele was able to communicate with the souls of her departed relatives, clients, friends and other spirits bringing new insight and understanding of the Heavenly Realms. Not only what we experience at the time of our death, but what we may actually be doing when we finally make transition to the Other Side!

Through actual communication with these souls that are now in Heaven, Michele brings new insight and understanding about what happens after we die. And it may not be what you think or believe! There is as much to do there spiritually as there is to do physically here on earth. We can teach, study with ascended masters and experts from any discipline, help other souls make transition, guide people (souls) still on earth and even re-create our own favorite memories from our last lifetime. Or we can simply relax and do nothing!

The information Michele received came from a broad range of departed souls throughout history, including well know celebrities, suicide victims, soldiers, and more. Therefore, Michele was able to paint a picture of what we may expect, not only as we make transition, but as our life continues in theSoul Place, our True Home!

MicheleAbout the Author:
Michele A. Livingston is an internationally known visionary, psychic medium and gifted artist. With a master’s degree in art education, she taught art in public schools and later displayed her work in her own art gallery. Clairvoyant from an early age, she has the incredible ability to see and communicate with angels, departed loved ones and spirit guides.

She is known at the ‘People’s Medium’ from her popular guest appearances on ‘The People’s Morning Show’ on 105.7 FM, The X. She has also donated her time during their ‘Pay-4-Play’ radio-thon for Children’s Miracle Network for the past several years doing phone readings for interested listeners.

In 1993, Mary, the Blessed Mother, appeared to Michele-which astounded the author because she was not raised Catholic. Mary entreated her to paint 12 different images of Mary’s divine feminine energy. This event changed the author’s life and is chronicled in her first book, Visions from Mary. A similar spiritual and artistic encounter with Red Cloud, the departed chief of the Lakota Sioux Indians, became the subject of her second book, Echoes in the Wind. Her third book, Miraculous Encounters, True Stories of Experiences with Angels and Departed Loved Ones, is a compilation of over 100 inspirational stories of spiritual encounters by ordinary people. Her fourth book, The True Nature of Love, Awakening to the Christ Consciousness, contains inspirational prayers on a variety of subjects with a central theme “love is the key to soul progression.”

Her book, Messages from Beyond: A Spiritual Guidebook, is an updated and revised version of her most popular book. It is filled with positive affirmations along with information about conscious manifestation, advancement of the spiritual journey and other metaphysical concepts. Michele has touched thousands of people-one-on-one and in seminars-with messages and actual visions of their departed loved ones. She has hosted her own radio talk show and has made numerous appearances on radio including Hay House Radio and TV on Fox News, ABC and Comcast CN8. As a healer, counselor, columnist and ordained minister, she continues to bring messages and soul-healing stories to people all over the world and assists people in taking that “next step” in consciousness to become closer to the Creator.

Michele is available for radio and TV interviews, seminars, group sessions, phone and in-person consultations. For information please visit her website at: http://www.michelelivingston.com, or call (717) 737-3888.
