The Afterlife of Billy Fingers
The Afterlife of Billy Fingers
I heard about this book on Facebook and was intrigued by the synopsis. I found I could not put it down, and I read it in a few days. I was very moved by the story and contacted the author, Annie Kagan on Facebook. I was pleasantly surprised to get a speedy response from a lovely person that seemed very in tune with the world.
Not Your Average Story
This is not your average ‘life after death’ story. Unlike many books on the subject, the author has not had a near death experience. The story comes through communication with her brother who passed away in unfortunate circumstances. It’s an unusual concept I’ve not heard before, although psychics claim to communicate with the dead all the time, the author is not a psychic. She is just an ordinary person trying to come to terms with her brothers death.
“Turn to nature to pardon some of the difficulty you have to bear. Nature has more light than anything else on your planet.” – The Afterlife of Billy Fingers.
I have read the reviews for ‘The Afterlife of Billy Fingers’ and while most of them are good, there are some that criticise, saying it’s too hard to believe and the thoughts of someone sitting in the clouds looking down is ridiculous. What I would say to these people is that they are taking it too literally, and looking at it from the viewpoint of where they are now. I dare say Annie seen her brother that way, but it didn’t actually mean he was physically sitting in a cloud like a genie. I take it to mean that it’s how she interpreted it, just as psychics are shown things and given messages, it doesn’t mean it in a literal sense, it’s how it was shown to them. People need to stop thinking as they are and think with the mindset that anything is possible. Maybe not in our physical narrow minded earth view, but in the broader sense as we are when we pass on. I feel we are very much blinkered in this life and it’s only when we open our minds and our perspectives that we experience much more.
While the experiences conveyed in my book ‘Paranormal Intruder’ were frightening and much more literal – chairs physically moving, knives being thrown – I also encountered some positive spiritual experiences, some too difficult or personal to put into words. I commend Annie Kagan for being brave enough to come out to the world with her story. I know it is not easy, but I am happy to see she appears to have a lot of support. I would recommend this to anyone interested in the afterlife, spiritual people, or those with a very open mind. Personally, I believe when we pass on we are initially treated in line with our own spiritual beliefs, so no two experiences may be the same. Having said that, most of the books I have read all have a common theme of love, energy and a positive presence, which is very comforting indeed. There are some real gems in this book and it is well written. I will no doubt read it again.
Over to you. Have you read the book? Have you experienced an NDE or communications from a loved one on the other side? Comments are most welcome.
