Hello From Heaven!, by Bill Guggenheim and Judy Guggenheim, Bantam Books, 1995.

 Summary (from book cover)

Is there life after death? Will we be reunited with our deceased loved ones when we die? Can they communicate with us?

Hello From Heaven! is the first complete study of an exciting new field of research called After-Death Communication, or ADC. This is a spiritual experience that occurs when a person is contacted directly and spontaneously by a family member or friend who has died. During their seven years of research, the authors collected more than 3,300 firsthand accounts from people who believe they have been contacted by a deceased loved one.

The 353 ADC accounts in Hello From Heaven! offer:

You will treasure these uplifiting messages from those who continue to exist in a life beyond physical death. Their profound communications of love offer comfort, hope, and spiritual inspiration to all readers.

Key Results

Because of the great variety of human and spiritual experiences involved, the authors have organized the thousands of ADC's they have received into the following ADC categories, each of which occupies a chapter in this book:

Sentient, Auditory, Tactile, Olfactory, Visual, Visions, Twilight, Sleep-State, Out-of-Body, Telephone, Physical Phenomena, Symbolic, Fearful, Before the News, Years Later, Evidential, Protection, Suicide Intervention, and With Witness.

By their very nature, After-Death Communications tend to be intensely personal and not frequently subject to independent verification. However, the authors have described a number of ADC's where information from a spirit was provided a human that could not have transmitted in any other fashion. Among these instances are the following:

In many respects the person receiving an After-Death Communication is in a similar situation to a person who has a Near-Death Experience. Both have strong emotional content which can change lives, by opening up spiritual understanding, although evidence of the reality of the experience is often not available.

 Primary Reason to Read This Work

After-Death Communication is widely experienced by persons suffering the loss of a loved one. It is a separate and independent source of evidentiary information about the continuation of consciousness and also provides corroborating information about the nature of the afterlife, particularly soon after transition. This book is the preeminent source of information about ADC's. link for book
