"If you want to open your own conversation with God, this is a book you should read." aNeale Donald Walsch
"If you want to open your own conversation with God, this is a book you should read." --Neale Donald Walsch
"A spiritual memoir by a former CTV news reporter, it explores his personal near-death and psychic experiences, introduces the idea that there is spiritual guidance available to everyone and we are never alone. The book explores reunions with departed souls, the discovery of soul mates, and past lives, as well as our purpose in the universe"--Provi

Like so many others, Paul Elder, a Canadian and former TV broadcast personality, was inspired by reading "Journeys Out Of Body" by Robert Monroe, the namesake of the Institute.
But Elder said he all-but forgot about the book after reading it years ago. Then he unexpectedly encountered his own spontaneous out-of-body experience. Suddenly, that strange but somewhat unbelievable book didn't seem so unbelievable anymore.
Elder went back to the library and re-read all of Monroe's books - and so began his own personal journey into the "astral realms" and beyond.
Here you will find many of the same experiences reported by other famous Monroe Institute alums - the experience of the soul (or energy body, or second body, or choose your term) leaving the physical body behind to hover around the bedroom, float through walls and go soaring through the local earth-like environment.
Eventually, the explorer graduates from mere "fooling around" inside his own home or the immediate environment to penetrate more exotic realms - higher plains of existence, upper levels of spiritual dwelling, cosmic libraries and the abodes of other earthlings who have passed on.
Angelic beings and entities that defy categorization are also encountered.
If you are familiar with other Monroe-associated writers -- such as Monroe himself, William Buhlman, Rosalind McKnight, Bruce Moen - Paul Elders book might seem like "more of the same."
Still, the author brings enough of his unique personality, personal history, story and background to make this a more than a worthwhile, inspiring read. There is no doubting Elder's passion for his subject, his sincerity, and I believe, the authenticity of experience.
In addition to his OBE experiments, Elder tells of three harrowing brushes with death which resulted in near death experiences (NDEs) -- a drowning, a car accident and a heart attack.
He survived all!
Elder's NDE elements add dimension to the big issues conjured by altered states of consciousness sought out in a proactive way.
One last thing: The writing itself is clear and straightforward, but Elder occasionally rises to higher literary heights with descriptions of the mysterious astral realms. At times, his words shimmer and scintillate across the page - it's no small challenge to relate the exotic experience of the OBE, describe strange environments, and explain trans-psychological processes. I give high marks to this author for rising to the challenge when he needs to.
I must also say: There are a couple of sections where personal revelations require the author's unflinching honesty, and he delivers.
If you are like me, and can't get enough of these kinds of books, then you must have this volume in your collection.
The reason I didn't give this book five stars is that there are personal details at the end that take away from the narrative. I won't get into the details, but I felt it was provocative, too personal and unnecessary to have included. It undermined the strength of the story and made me think the "eyes of an angel" were those of his incredibly understanding wife.
