A compassionate and straightforward guide to the spiritual process of death and spirit communication

We are all curious about the mystery of death. Whether facing our own, assisting a loved one in their last days, or grieving the loss of someone dear to us, we all have questions about dying and what happens to our soul after we depart physical form.

In this compassionate and straightforward guide to the spiritual process of dying and what happens after death, psychic medium Salicrow answers the most common questions asked by her clients over her decades of work as a spirit speaker. Seeking to normalize the spiritual aspects of end-of-life care, she explains how active dying exists outside of normal reality, in a state in which the dying person and their caregivers often experience a heightened state of consciousness. Describing how the spirit is separate from the body and continues to exist after death, she shares thought-provoking stories of spirit contact and synchronicities that occurred for those actively involved in the dying process. She reveals how these encounters are common and act as guideposts along the journey into death, helping to ease the transition. She offers simple techniques for helping loved ones who are stuck or struggling to cross over and shares practices designed to help honor our beloved dead and develop living relationships with our ancestral spirits.

Presenting an outline of what may be experienced during the dying process and beyond, Salicrow explores the time when a soul is actively dying or recently departed. She explains the multiple ways spirits reach out to communicate with us and provides a deep understanding of the signs, symbols, and sensations that spirits use to contact us as well as ways to strengthen that connection. She also explores challenging situations such as suicide, murder, and healing unresolved issues with the dead.

Crafted through years of spirit communication sessions, this guide details how the spirit world works while revealing the beauty, healing, and love that exist in death.

"I really enjoyed reading Spirit Speaker. Salicrow’s writing style is very conversational and bright, especially for a topic that some would consider morose. The book was well planned, easy to read, and included both a table of contents and a very specific index. I plan to create my own altar to my ancestors and will also enjoy teaching some of the concepts in this book to my women’s group and clients."

"In this new short volume, Spirit Speaker, Salicrow writes that she hopes that 'anyone reading it may find a deeper understanding about what happens when we die' and 'how alive our Beloved Dead really are.' Salicrow’s theme throughout this book is one of normalizing the processes of death by encouraging people to do some sort of practice with death on a regular basis. This book is a useful guide."

"This is a good introduction by a practitioner describing how she uses these therapies with the most focus being on the flower essences. The book will give the reader an overview of how alternative therapies are talking about and treating family trauma. The added twist of the author's personal experiences makes this more interesting."
