Psychic medium and clairvoyant James Van Praagh was very important to my spiritual growth because in his book, “Unfinished Business”, he told the story of 3 young men who died in Vietnam and then died again together in a car accident in California to pay off a Karmic debt for a cruelty they did in Vietnam. This story gave me the clue that my soul was in a similar debt position for something bad I did in a prior life. As such James is one of my psychic heroes and I follow him on twitter. He recently tweeted that “The secret to a successful life can’t be found in money or possessions, but in love for self & others, & compassion for all living things.” I actually have a quote beyond the grave from my father. (The story of this psychic reading that connected to my dad is also in my book, “My journey down the reincarnation highway”.) My dad told me in the reading that “I want you to know that, in life, I put on a very confident face. In truth, though, I was unconfident and many times unsure of myself. I regret that I put too much emphasis on material things. These things really are unimportant. I should have been putting more emphasis on relationships. Relationships cannot be bought.” There you go James, your words are validated from beyond the veil!
