3. Butterflies Are Free to Fly: A New and Radical Approach to Spiritual Evolution by Stephen Davis – Given that the physical universe which looks and feels so real to us is actually a unique holographic projection from our own brain, the author examines various models for life and living that are very different than what we have been told and taught.

The Thought for Today and Every Day

We are much more than what we think we are. We are very deep entities, each and every one of us.

Dr. John Muciaccia Will Discuss Book Spirit Lives! at Secaucus Library

Author Dr. John Muciaccia will discuss his upcoming book Spirit Lives! from 7 pm to 9 pm on Thursday, November 21 at the Secaucus Library.

People can register online for this free event at the library or by calling 201-330-2084.

As part of this event, Michael Jackson impersonator Marlon Rodriguez and Roger Ansanelli, a sound healer, will entertain the audience. Muciaccia also will welcome teenage pianist, John Patrick Brennan, who is expected to play Mozart’s Turkish March.

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’s Book Talk Draws a Crowd

Last week’s “Book Talk” on Spirit Lives! at the Hoboken Public Library was a wonderful success for all concerned. About 20 minutes before the event was set to begin, the AC went out at the library. So, taking this as an opportunity, Dr. John Muciaccia moved the venue across the street to Church Square Park.

There were 100 people in attendance and the event was held under a gazebo
in this historic park where many scenes from “On The Waterfront” were shot.

At his “Book Talk” a Michael Jackson impersonator named Marlon Rodriguez performed for the crowd.   Also, Roger Ansanelli, a sound healer used his
crystal bowl to give a blessing to the audience.

Then Dr. John, as he is known to his friends, talked about his book Spirit Lives! to a very enthusiastic group. He discussed several very interesting selections from his book.  He talked “off the cuff” and had his listeners fascinated at what he had to say.

Although Spirit Lives! is not yet published, it has received media attention and is in the hands of a few international publishers being read at this moment.

Interview with Roland Comtois for Spirit Lives!

For my new book Spirit Lives! I was fortunate to be able to interview Roland Comtois, an internationally acclaimed medium, best-selling speaker and author of And Then There Was Heaven, A Journey of Hope and Love.

I interviewed Roland in Chappaqua, New York in May 2012.   The meeting
was fascinating.  And in the last 15 minutes, Roland gave me quite a surprise.
All of a sudden, Roland began twisting in his chair.   His voice changed, his
facial expression changed and he began telling me of the final 15 minutes of
my father’s life – – as though he was my father!    The accuracy of his description
was uncanny, given the fact that Roland never met my father and my father had
passed 20 years previously.
