Here & Hereafter: How Wisdom from the Departed Can Transform Your Life Now

Tyler Henry. St. Martin’s Essentials, $27.99 (288p) ISBN 978-1-250-79677-6
Self-proclaimed clairvoyant Henry (Between Two Worlds) offers a heartfelt, mystical guide on how to live an “authentic” life (while still living), based on his reported conversations with the departed. In his introduction, he explains how, upon death, a person goes through what he calls a “life review,” facing their human difficulties, deepest traumas, and all of their “existential baggage.” Tapping into what “the departed would do differently” for advice, Tyler outlines a path to a “spirit-filled life,” including how to “check your ego” and cope with loss. He coaches readers on how they can also identify signs “from the great beyond,” including those found in dreams, visions, and “happenstance or synchronicity.” Along with glimpses of his own spiritual encounters, he weaves in anecdotes from celebrity clients’ lives, such as Alan Thicke (from three months before Thicke’s unexpected death), and historical tidbits such as how Harriet Tubman guided the enslaved to liberation “by following the guidance from visions.” The self-help takeaways aren’t all that fresh, but their uplifting delivery will appeal to the faithful: “I consider a message from a loved one to be God-sent,” Henry writes. Skeptics won’t be converted, but those already bought into spiritualism will come away with a deeper appreciation of the value of gleaning knowledge from “the hereafter.” Agent: Brandi Bowles, United Talent Agency.
