This book promo includes a selection of 45 powerful books specifically designed to enhance your life.

Featuring Tellwell author Mike Ellis’s Guided Teachings from Spirit . . .

A spirit guide.
Love is the answer.
Love is the be-all.
Don’t be afraid.
I am here to help you.
These are a few of the words I had written down the morning after a trusted medium told me to buy a notebook and write down the very first thing that came to me. Okay, but these didn’t sound like things I would say. Was it really my spirit guide? I had doubts, and those doubts would stay with me over the next several months as I continued this daily ritual.
Eventually, I accepted the fact that this was spirit communication. This was a guide, and there would be two more to follow in the coming years. This has now become a daily routine after my morning meditation: sitting and writing what comes through me. It is indeed a deep communication with a close friend and confidant.
In the course of all of this, there would be so much more. How I improved and strengthened my mediumship abilities, how the Universe opened to me in so many ways, and how my personal life changed for the better. Do you think this is something you would be interested in trying? If I can do it, so can you. Follow my progress from my initial misgivings to my introduction to a whole new world.
My first book, Guided Messages from the Other Side, narrated my introduction to mediumship and metaphysics, which spiritually altered the way I continue with my life. This, my second offering, chronicles my further explorations into amazing dimensions and realms, all supported by loving guidance from those on the other side.
