Sunday Book Review – Testimony of Light – An Extraordinary Message of Life After Death

Welcome to my Sunday Book Review. Today I’m sharing a recent read – Testimony of Light written by Helen Greaves, but the writing is all telepathically transmitted to Helen from her departed good friend and former nun, Frances Banks. Fascinating read on the spiritual life we encounter after we pass to the other side.

 

 

 

 

Blurb:

When Frances Banks died her friend Helen Greaves was by her side. Then, one evening, some three weeks after Frances’ death, Helen sensed her presence. This extraordinary encounter marked the beginning of contact between them from either side of the veil.

‘Testimony of Light’ is based on the communications that Helen received telepathically from Frances. The scripts have been authenticated by those who knew them both and who were familiar with their individual writing styles. Moving and inspiring, this book is a testament to the enduring power of their friendship and offers an important message to us all – that the death of the body is but a gentle passing to a much freer and fuller life.

My 5 Star Review:

The book was written in the late 1960s by Helen Greaves, who was a writer, not a practicing medium, who was purportedly translating the messages of her departed friend, a former nun, Frances Banks, who had passed a short while before the writing. Frances was communicating to her friend Helen through telepathic writing (channeled thoughts from Frances) from the next life. We are told that Frances had been encouraged by her group of souls to contact her friend Helen in order for her to document Frances’ experiences in a book for the benefit of those still residing on the earth plane, wanting to know more about the other side, and wanting to confirm that our soul and consciousness go with us.

I was particularly interested in the fact that Frances had for some 25 years, been a nun in a Christian order, but left after apparently finding the confines of organized religion  no longer satisfactory as she began her lifelong quest for studying spiritual truth.

Published in 1969, Helen Greaves received telepathically (not automatic writing) from her close friend, Sister Frances Banks who died in 1965. For those of us who are curious about the after world, I’d say that Banks’ sharing of life from another realm was a fascinating peek into the next world. The subject matter printed back in the 60s was well ahead of our times.

  1. Fascinating subject Debby and an extraordinary story for sure. I think that just because it appears there is little contact between this world and the next, does not mean that hasn’t been and we have just missed it. I know that on a number of occasions there have been strange events or signs that immediately make me think of someone close who has died, and even dreams out of the blue… who knows what their origins are…thanks for your review..♥♥

    1. Thank you Sal, I have no doubts of your experiences because I’ve encountered some ‘unusual’ happenings myself. This was truly a fascinating account. Imagine having ‘thought pattern’ from a lost loved one guiding the story for us? That in itself had me curious. ❤ xxx

  3. Hi Debby – this sounds really interesting … I’m all for there being different planes we move onto … my mother certainly saw people, before she passed on, and had been down the tunnel of light – but decided she didn’t want to go yet … it’s a book I’d like to read sometime. Thanks for the great reivew … and it sounds as though you’re getting some understanding about you and hubby as our earthly time goes on. Take care and with thoughts – Hilary

    1. Hi Hilary. Thanks for sharing that about your mum. My husband was talking to his lost loved ones about a week before he passed. I knew then he was on his way, almost between two world. Moments such as that will never leave me. ❤

  4. Great review, Debby. This sounds like a good read and insight. I believe in the afterlife and find it fascinating when it breaks through to communicate.

  5. Thanks Debby I have downloaded and going up to bed with my Kindle. I don’t think most of us are privileged to have such experiences because we have to get on with life here; it would be chaos if we were in touch with the other side all the time!

  6. So interesting, Debby. I completely believe that conversations occur through the veil to a few special people. A Course in Miracles was supposedly channeled material and its hard to believe anyone could have written it otherwise. Back in my 20’s, I was introduced to Emmanuel’s Book, a book of channeled material by Emmanuel through a woman named Pat Rodegast. I loved the book and then went to see them in person in Boston. What an amazing experience and beautiful book. It just exudes love, compassion, and wisdom. Thanks for sharing Helen’s book and her incredible experience.

      1. Ha ha ha. I thought that might happen. It’s a lovely, easy going read that you can dip into and out of. I think Pat and Judy probably retired years ago, but seeing them at work in person was something else.

  7. There is so much appeal and common sense about being able to communicate with those who have passed on. Energy doesn’t go away–just a different form, and communication has many methods that humans don’t understand. This book sounds excellent.

  9. My Dad saw his spirit guide just before he passed and described him to Mum and me. I believe we all receive messages from our loved ones in the spirit world, in different ways and times. There is much for us to learn when we get there. I know you see signs, my lovely unicorn buddy. Thank you for this lovely review. I love you. ❤ Xxxx ❤

    1. Wow, that’s amazing Jane. My husband saw a few lost loved ones a week before he died. I wish he could have still spoke so he could have told me himself who he was talking to, but he could no longer speak. My heart to yours sweet Jane. Love flowing back to you my unicorn friend. Love and Hugs ❤ xoxox

  11. Sounds interesting, Debby, especially since it was written decades ago. I guess I will have to read this book to get a better understanding of the topic and insight into the dialogue and what the conversations were actually about… 🙂

  12. Debby, what an incredible book and even more so as it was written so long ago! Helen and Frances seemed to have been two amazing people with fascinating lives in their own right before their stories were united in such an unusual manner. I’m glad you clarified that this wasn’t automatic writing which I had assumed at first. A number of people have related ‘visits’ from their loved ones as well as others seeing their deceased family days before their death, days when the living almost seemed superfluous. A subject I’m fascinated by and I’m keen to see the content of telepathic writing. Many thanks for sharing with us Debby and hope your reading is giving you some solace. hugs xx
