With me this morning is Stephen O'Brien - absolutely fascinating. If you've just joined us we've been hearing about his ability to put people in touch with their loved ones.
Your book, Visions of Another World, Stephen, has just come out and in fact has had to be reprinted . . .
That's spine-tingling, Stephen. I want to ask you a million more questions, and a couple of things occur to me immediately. The first one is my feeling that when we lose a loved one we need to practice some acceptance that they've passed on, and whether what you do is really preventing us having that experience?
I don't think that's the case. Grief is a perfectly natural process and people will grieve when they miss the physical presence of someone they've lost to the world of the spirit.
I don't think that what I do stops that grieving process, because people have to accept their loved ones are no longer with them physically.
What I do doesn't stem or stop grief, it adds knowledge to people's faith. A lot of religions take one to the graveside and say, 'Here we leave you with love and faith'. But what I do takes people one step further and says: 'If you're willing to search and seek, maybe to that faith you can add some knowledge, and comfort.'
