Product description


"A truly important and courageous book that will help many people to understand their soul's journey, to heal grief, and to let go of fear."---- Brian L. Weiss, M.D., author of Many Lives, Many Masters

From the Back Cover

Many people are afraid of the dead, but Kim Russo is not one of them. She is known for talking to the deceased as much as to the living, and her incredible conversations with spirits will astound you!

There are many things about this life we don't understand, and there is even more about the afterlife that is a mystery to us. But by talking to spirits for nearly two decades, world-renowned medium Kim Russo, aka "The Happy Medium," has learned much to help demystify both worlds.

Kim was just nine years old when she encountered the first of many spirits. Initially she was frightened and skeptical, but over time she began to accept the voices that spoke to her from the other side and appreciate the wisdom they shared. Even though she was taught to suppress her gift, she realized that the messages she brought through were vitally important and that she didn't choose this life--it chose her.

As she was developing her psychic abilities, curiosity led her to learn hypnosis so she could help people explore and recover past-life memories, too. Through these experiences and her countless conversations with spirits, she learned all about the nature of energy and the resilience of the soul.

Fluent in the language of the spirit world, Kim has helped everyone from regular people to the biggest celebrities confront the fears that haunt them most and embrace the truths that bring increased light and love into our lives.

Her understanding of the soul's journey and the messages she's delivered have made people laugh and cry, and of course given great comfort to the grieving. Now, in The Happy Medium, she not only shares her incredible story, she offers valuable tools to help us develop our own psychic abilities, achieve enlightenment, and improve the quality of our present and future lives.
