-- The Medium Explosion: A Guide to Navigating the World of Those Who Claim to Communicate with the Dead
, provides a guide for all those who have either sat with a medium, intend to do so, or are simply curious about what happens when they die. The book educates the public on such things as what to expect, how to evaluate the information provided, how mediums operate, and the nature of grief. The author also includes commentary on other evidence for life after death and includes personal accounts that are backed up by research.
The appearance of mediums, those who claim to be able to communicate with the dead, is not a recent phenomenon. Mediums have been practicing since the late 1800s, and in the Victorian Era had a strong presence throughout the United States and the world. However, we have never seen the sheer number of such practitioners that exist today. The media has contributed to this proliferation, as TV shows and films involving paranormal and spiritual themes have enjoyed great success.
But there is a problem. The overwhelming majority of mediums today cannot do what they claim. Some are frauds, others are inexperienced, and many delude themselves into believing that they have such ability. These practitioners have no business sitting with the bereaved and they can do great harm. On the other hand, there are some mediums who truly can speak to the dead, do so at a very high level of accuracy, and provide an invaluable service to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one.
Author Robert Ginsberg started researching the evidence for survival of consciousness soon after his daughter died in 2002. Devastated by the loss, he needed science to tell him if she still existed in some form. In 2004, Bob and his wife Phran founded Forever Family Foundation (foreverfamilyfoundation.org)
, a global not-for-profit that educates the public about evidence that we are more than our physical bodies. Bob hosts the Signs of Life
radio show, is past editor of Signs of Life Magazine
, heads the foundation's Medium Evaluation Certification Program, and writes a blog at beyondthefivesenses.com. Bob and Forever Family Foundation are currently featured in the Netflix series Surviving Death
