The title of this book The World of Psychics, Mediums and Spirits – A Look Inside from the Outside obviously refers to me as the person looking in from the outside and Linda Lee being inside.
However, the word "world" requires a little elaboration. The first connotation which might come to mind is the planet earth depicted by a sphere setting on a stand upon with a map of the continents and oceans is superimposed.
Or, perhaps, what is visualized is a ball representing the earth rotating on its axis with other planets revolving around the sun. That is not what is meant in this title alone. Rather, a broader sense of the word is also intended.
Consider the words "world of psychics, mediums and spirits" as being a collective of nouns referring to a realm or whole area of interest, such as the "world of medicine" or "world of science." Psychics and mediums, as we refer to them here, are humans living on our planet earth. Spirits, however, may be anywhere in our planetary system, within our "milky way" universe among its millions of stars and associated planets.
Or, they may be among the countless stars, planets, and universes beyond our universe, and whatever may be further beyond all of that.
There are several levels of popular awareness of what psychics, mediums and spirits are and their interaction with each other. These levels may be generally categorized as follows:
2. Heard about it, do not believe it, it is nonsense.
3. Heard about it, but never looked into it.
4. Curious, more information would help satisfy my curiosity.
5. Skeptical, but afraid there is some substance to it.
6. Have some knowledge but need more information to fully appreciate its meaning for me.
7. Lots of experience with psychics and mediums, but what else is there to it?
This book is written to address all levels of interest. It is meant to be both a basic primer, in the sense of an elementary text for readers not acquainted at all with psychics, mediums, and spirits as alluded to above. And, it is also intended to be informative about psychics, mediums, and spiritual activity at advanced levels far beyond the elementary.
"Reviewed by Tammy Ruggles for Readers' Favorite
The World of Psychics, Mediums and Spirits by David L. Hack, with Linda Lee Hack, psychic and medium, is a comprehensive guide to understanding the basics of psychics. The author intentionally uses broad ideas to inform the reader who knows little about the subject matter, or who has some knowledge of it but may be confused about what psychics, mediums, and spirits are. It's also perfect for those who want to learn more about the supernatural. Those skeptical of these concepts may never be fully convinced, but this book comes close to being the authoritative source, because Linda Lee is a renowned psychic and medium, and she relates her supernatural experiences--including contacts with spirits and her former lives--in a way that both educates and entertains. You don't have to set your spiritual life or faith aside in order to read this book, and you don't have to subscribe to it. Just read with an open mind and reach your own conclusions. You may be surprised at the wealth of knowledge in this book.
David L. Hack, also Linda Lee's spouse, covers a host of topics besides psychic phenomena, like reincarnation, life after death, UFOs, aliens, light language, and others. This book would be a wonderful resource for authors, filmmakers, or anyone writing a formal paper on these subjects. The book is well-organized and presented in a clear way that is easy to follow. You are afforded a definition of terms, with explanations and examples, and passages about Edgar Cayce and other notables in the history and practices of the psychic/supernatural realm. And as mentioned earlier, you'll read about Linda Lee's experiences as well, and about energies, auras, chakras, channeling, meditation, and more. Photographs and illustrations accompany the text, and it's clear that a lot of work and devotion went into this book. The World of Psychics, Mediums and Spirits by David L. Hack, with Linda Lee Hack, is a must-read for anyone in need of an insider's perspective of the psychic and supernatural realm"
