Temples On The Other Side by Sylvia Browne (Book Review)

From inside cover:

“Once again, Sylvia Browne brings you fascinating information from the Other Side that can help your earthly existence. This time she explores the many temples and halls “beyond the veil,” explaining how they all hold wisdom that can dramatically improve your life right now. With the aid of her spirit guide Francine, Sylvia uses her gift of trance mediumship to discuss the role of each of these wonderful places and gives you the opportunity to experience the beauty and wonder of your real Home.

“Sylvia includes easy yet effective meditations to help you access exquisite edifices, including the Temple of Learning, the Hall of Healing, and more—each of which serves a particular purpose. And not only will you feel as if you’re actually visiting these special sites, but you’ll also gain insight into how their attributes can help you overcome challenges—and enrich your life in ways you never thought possible.”

This was my first Sylvia Browne book, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised during the reading of it. Her writing style is easy to understand, while providing indepth explanations of each of the temples and halls. Some may find this pure ‘fantasy’; however, the world is full of mysterious things that cannot be explained by ordinary means. Many people already see and converse with angels as well has having the ability to see them.

For those who are curious about the Other Side this is the book to read. Just before getting this book I had a feeling or image presented intuitively of a Greek-style temple in cloud-like formation sitting on a platform floating along. Once I got into the book I realized there were answers here that I had been looking for. Though I tend to take a ‘grain of salt’ with any metaphysical book, this one became quite intriguing when I came in contact with one of the Council Elders. After that occurrence the rest of the material was read with an objective view that there are different avenues to provide insight in this area.

For those readers wanting to explore each of the meditations within: go with an open mind rather than a skeptical one.

Sounds like you were drawn to it. I'm not a Browne fan, but whatever works for you is valid.

I am afraid I've never read one of Sylvia Browne's books, but this book looks intriguing and interesting.

I haven't read anything by her. Sounds interesting.

Must research this woman a bit more. Sounds intruiging.

Leah, this is my first foray into her books. It was the subject matter that drew me.

Diana Gabaldon had a similar occurrence when she was first writing the Outlander series: finding a book that literally fell off the library rack infront of her that contained a reference about a James Fraser at Culoden. This happened after she had begun writing the seires.

Whether or not this book assists with my writing, only time will tell.

Wil, the material provides a different view than what one might expect.
