Reading With Katrina

Seeing the Dead, Talking With Spirits: Shamanic Healing Through Contact With The Spirit World

Author: Alexandra Leclere

Destiny Books, 2005

Initially, I felt that this book was a ‘learn to’ book. I soon discovered that was not the case. Instead, I learned that it is a first person account of Alexandra Leclere, a tv producer. After having an alternative healing session, she discovered that she had ‘abilities.’ She began to research what she was experiencing, asking for answers from Shamans and other healers and through all this, she learned of her gift, the ability to see spirits. There were short stories in this book which I found almost to be destraction but still, I liked the book. I do believe though, that the title makes one believe it’s a ‘how to’ book as opposed to a womans accounting of her experiencing seeing the dead.
