This cover won the contest!

It's here! The book, My Psychic Search: discovering what psychics do, what psychics know, and how they can help us improve our lives, is now available in print and as a Kindle e-book!

If you have read the blogs, you have a hint as to what is in the book. But it's only a hint. The book has more-complete information than the blogs, and is organized in a very readable way.

The first Section, The Introduction, contains information on each of the people who participated in this Project.

The second Section, Life as a Psychic, discusses what it is like to be strongly psychic. The psychics talk about their invisible information sources, the pros and cons of psychic ability, and how they figured out that they were psychic. 

The third Section is all about Readings, Healings and Energy Work. The psychics tell us what to expect from a reading, how readings work, who they communicate with, and what to do with the information we hear at a reading. There are also hints for finding the best reader for each person's needs. 

The fourth section, The Wheel of Incarnation, provides thought-provoking insights on life, death, the afterlife, re-incarnation and the reasons people are here on Earth. Highlights from a stunning psychic-channeling event are included in this discussion.

The fifth section is about The Future. It includes strategies for developing your own psychic abilities and also talks about the year 2012 and all of the anticipated changes. Each psychic has a unique perspective on 2012 and these perspectives can help the rest of us prepare for the Future. 

The book is written in a Question and Answer format so you can go directly to the questions which intrigue you. Questions include: What do psychics tap into? How do they know they are receiving "outside" information and not just imagining the answers? What is it like to work with Spirit Guides?, and, After dying, where do we go?
The Table of Contents is shown below.

The book is more than 350 pages long and the paper version costs $19.95. You can order right now by clicking the "Buy Now" button. If you are not signed up for PayPal, use the site as a Guest.

If you are more comfortable using, the book is available on that site too.
Orders for printed books can only be accepted for mailing addresses in the United States.
If you prefer a Kindle e-book, order it here. The e-book is only $4.99! 
If you live in Tucson, you can purchase the book at Carefree Computers, 4245 W. Ina Road, Suite 103, at SpiritsChild Metaphysical Gift Shop on Orange Grove Road at Thornydale Road, and at Antigone Books on 4th Avenue in downtown Tucson, AZ.
