Beginning of “Spirit Lives!”

When I flew to Boca Raton to interview Lynn Hambro for Spirit Lives! I never thought that I would meet the manager in the hotel where I was staying and she, too, would have a story to tell me.

Two days later I returned home with two stories for my book.   Read “Lynn Hambro, Psychic Healer” and “Dr. David Dalton” and you will read of my adventures!

Book Talk and Book Signing

We had a wonderful audience for our Book Talk & Book Signing last Tuesday evening at the Symposia Bookstore in Hoboken.   The questions were mostly about “what is it like up there?”  I attempted to give the answer to that question from what I discovered doing my interviews for the book, Spirit Lives!  My answer was, in effect, “it is like nothing we can imagine with our Earth bound consciousness.”   

Sandra Redman’s blurb on “Spirit Lives!”

Sandra Redman, a noted NYC clairvoyant & psychic, has said that “I am delighted with the publication of Spirit Lives! because it allows the reader to have an intimate look into the wonderful world of Spirit.  Dr. John Muciaccia has done a marvelous job in detailing the fascinating stories in this book.”   Sandra Redman is one of more than 20 professionals highlighted in “Spirit Lives!”

Writing “Spirit Lives!”

Writing Spirit Lives! has taken me on a four-year adventure.  During that adventure I met and wrote about the greatest mediums in and out of the U.S.A.   Included in that group of professional is John of God, the Brazilian healer featured on television.  I spent 9 hours with John of God when he visited Omega Institute in Rhineback, New York.

Also, I have included interviews from 20 “ordinary” people who had extraordinary experiences with Spirit.

Amazon.com has both Kindle and paperback editions of Spirit Lives! now.

My Upcoming Book Talk and Book Signing

On Tuesday, July 8 I will have a Book Talk and Book Signing of Spirit Lives! at the Symposia Book Store and Community Center located at 510 Washington Street in Hoboken.   We will have a lively Q & A following the Book Talk.   All are welcome to attend.    Thanks!

Dr. John Muciaccia Discusses Spirit Lives! with Sam Liebowitz

MPS_7340Dr. John Muciaccia discussed his upcoming book Spirit Lives! when he was a guest on the Conscious Consultant Hour with Sam Liebowitz. He shared some anecdotes from the book as well as some of his personal beliefs and the inspiration behind the book.

Here is an excerpt from the interview; the complete interview can be heard here.

“How does a high school English teacher end up writing a book about mediums and psychics and spirit?’ asked Liebowitz.

“I’ve always had a lifelong interest in spirit,” answered Dr. John, as he is known to friends. “I was an 8-year-old boy – an 8-year-old adorable little boy. I just understood my grandfather had a ‘knowingness.’ I didn’t know the word psychic then.”

Liebowitz asked how Dr. John chose people to interview for Spirit Lives! and he said many of them came to him. “Spirit works in very wonderful ways,” said Dr. John. “I really think this book was written through me.”

The first person he interviewed for Spirit Lives! was Brazilian healer, John of God, who was coming to Rhinebeck, NY. His experiences during that visit are included in a chapter of the book.

Liebowitz asked if there was anything that came as a surprise when he was writing the book.

“My intuition had always told me that we’re all psychic,” he answered. “This book convinced me of that.”

“This book also convinced me there’s really no reason for us to grieve our loved ones when they physically pass,” he said.

His personal experience during an interview with medium Roland Comtois solidified his belief in “life after life.” At the end of the interview Dr. John recalled that Comtois’ voice changed and he started to describe the last few minutes of his father’s life.

“That was an interview and a connection with my own dad,” said Dr. John.

Sam asked if there were particular stories that people tended to respond to more and Dr. John related his experiences with psychic Frank St. James, who has helped numerous police departments find missing bodies. St. James, who never charged for his services, had his work corroborated by the Englewood Cliffs Police Chief and others in the department.

Dr. John’s book also includes several experiences of so-called ordinary people such as a woman who was in her backyard and because she was going through an emotional time she began praying to her mother. It was a calm day and yet the clothes pins started to pop off the line, he said.

“I believe people are psychic,” Dr. John said. “Many people have it, they just have to open themselves to it.”

When asked what the spiritual message of the book is, Dr. John answered, “I believe we are all one. We are a reflection of one another.”

Dr. John Muciaccia Interviewed on Dial In Channel Up

MPS_7358Dr. John Muciaccia had a wonderful interview about his book Spirit Lives! with Lisa Salaz on the Dial In Channel Up Show.

“I know he will be a dear friend each day forward,” said Salaz as she introduced Dr. John.

When she asked him about Spirit Lives! and the origin of that title, he replied, “We’re talking about such a dynamic entity it needs an exclamation point.”

“I want to give the reader knowledge and hope,” he continued. “knowledge that there is this vast, vivid, very alive part of the universe called spirit and hope in the sense that we’ve all lost someone that we miss terribly – hope that this person is still alive in a different consciousness, the consciousness we call it now is spirit or soul.”

Dr. John also shared one of his earliest memories of the affect of spirit on his life. Before his family moved into his house in Hoboken, his maternal grandfather, Giuseppe Galioto, was asked to come and look at the house.

“He said, ‘This is a good house,'” Dr. John recalled. “He didn’t check the plumbing or the architecture. He sensed the energy in the house … I was fascinated by this as a young boy that some people had a “knowingness.”

He shared another experience with spirit when he planned a trip to Ellis Island on Labor Day in 2006. He had an issue with his credit card when he tried to book the trip and then later decided to go instead on September 19. He used the same credit card and the transaction went through without a problem. Dr. John searched for his father’s name to see his immigration record. He discovered that his father had immigrated on September 19, 1907.

“How did that happen?” Dr. John asked. “Spirit intervention.”
