PSYCHIC: My Life in Two Worlds [Book Review]

June 2, 2010 at 8:21 am 3 comments

I finished reading Psychic: My Life in Two Worlds by Sylvia Browne yesterday, and here’s what I thought:

Overall it was a very interesting true story about the life of Sylvia Browne, who is a psychic. She’s been in touch with her gifts since she was a child, and she had a psychic grandmother who helped her understand and trust them. Because she grew up accepting her gifts, she was able to make full use of them and became a famous psychic whose knowing has been “proved” and verified in many different instances.  It was amazing to see what a fully-surrendered life can bring!

Chapter 1 “Growing Up Psychic” was my favorite part of the book.  I liked reading about how, as a child, Sylvia was able to “see” people’s health problems, interact with her spirit guide, and give away grownups’ secrets that she intuitively knew.  This chapter also covers her experiences with nuns in a Catholic school who only accepted her powers after a stern talking-to from Sylvia’s grandmother, but who then often asked her advice. We follow Sylvia through her adolescence, share with her the anguish of her parent’s failing marriage and her grandmother’s death.

The rest of the book describes how Sylvia began to use her psychic gifts more and more publicly: giving readings, channeling her spirit guide, starting nonprofit organizations and appearing on many TV shows. Sylvia tells many stories about encountering ghosts and trying to help them along to the other side. She tells of her singular encounter with an angel and its beauty. She also tells her personal story intertwined with the many stories of others she’s come across and been a part of. She tells about her failed marriages, her relationships with her children and the lessons that she learned about herself and about the nature of life along the way.

Sylvia  has had a rich and full life that was a pleasure to share. Her sensitivity and wisdom come across throughout the entire memoir, and she has a matter-of-fact way of discussing even the strangest things that I appreciate. Since this is the first of Sylvia’s many books I”ve read, I am interested to read more of her work and to learn from the amazing journey of her life.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I was given a free copy of this book to review by the publisher, in exchange for my honest evaluation of it on this blog.

    Wow, it sounds like Sylvia Browne has a lot of stories to tell! It’s kind of refreshing to see a memoir from someone over the age of, oh, THIRTY.

    Thanks for being on this tour! Great job on the review. 🙂
