"What I call my ‘voice’ is telepathically communicated guidance from a source that loves, guides, educates, comforts, and blesses me."

Just before and immediately after her good friend Ninette passed away at age ninety, author and spiritual seeress Muir began receiving messages from her that became the basis for this fascinating vision of life after death. Ninette, like Muir, had been drawn to study at the Sancta Sophia Seminary and become an ordained minister through that pathway. For nearly a year, Muir heard and transcribed Ninette's sage counsel, described in scrupulous detail from that realm known to some as the Other Side.

According to Ninette, those who die will enter a place where angels preside and where each soul experiences an atmosphere based on their earthly actions. Those with a higher level of positive connectivity will hear lovely music (not the Muzak that Muir humorously confesses that she fears) and imbibe "the power of goodness" that dominates the atmosphere. Those who have chosen a conflicted, criminal, or violent lifespan will be maintained at different levels and, with angelic assistance, slowly, gradually move upward as they begin to long for the chance at a higher experience.

And even Ninette and those like her will feel regrets for their earthly foibles and be allowed to examine them in the clear light of karmic law and angelic oversight. They look, Ninette tells Muir, as they did in their last moments on earth, and recognize and happily greet those who have gone before them. It is a realistic learning experience. Ninette believes that Muir is destined to share her communications for the guidance of others because of the author's innate ability to hear and understand them clearly and directly.

Muir's personal spiritual journey began when she "heard" a telepathic message regarding her son, who, she was told, had been her father in a past life. This led her to embark on a study of such well-known clairvoyants as Edgar Cayce, a simple American farmer who had etheric visions and offered healings to many while in a trance state. Another significant influence was Rudolf Steiner, a European mystic whose teachings form the basis for the Waldorf education system for which Muir has served as a teacher.

Her book is divided into two parts: "Part I" records and amplifies her "conversations" with Ninette, allowing the author to explore her own human nature as Ninette recalls hers and gives hope for a more enlightened future for herself, Muir, and for the whole planet. "Part II" gives a sampling of the kinds of work Muir has been able to accomplish based on the wise advice of her heavenly mentor and on her own telepathic grasp of higher realities. These include a "forgiveness ceremony" for a friend who died with regrets for his wrong-doings and the use of the Unity prayer for another who committed suicide and would need greater help to move beyond the trauma of this violent end.

The author's writing is engaging, treating serious issues with sincerity and the occasional touch of healthy humor. Muir's narrative amply fulfills the purpose that Ninette so wisely envisioned, opening the possibility of greater spiritual insight, inner hearing, and outer healing for readers drawn to the wide scope of possibilities being offered.
