My Video Interview With James Van Praagh



James Van Praagh

I was honored to interview James Van Praagh, a prolific author and one of the world’s best-known spiritual mediums. James, who was kind enough to contribute a story to my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, answered my questions about his brand-new book, Unfinished Business: What The Dead Can Teach Us About Life.


James bridges the gap between the living and dead by providing evidential proof of life after death via detailed messages from those who have passed on. HIs first book, Talking To Heaven, served as the inspiration for the 2002 CBS mini-series, Living with the Dead, starring Ted Danson. That mini-series, in turn, inspired Ghost Whisperer, a weekly CBS drama starring Jennifer Love Hewitt and co-executive produced by Van Praagh. His daytime talk show, Beyond With James Van Praagh, aired in the U.S. during the 2002-2003 season, and is still being shown throughout the world.


Here are some cool stories James told me when I interviewed him for my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents on Amazon.

Order it at

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?

Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.

    Greetings Phil!… I love this!

    Thank you Very much for sharing this wonderful video with James Van Praagh!

    It is very comforting to know our loved ones are peaceful and safe in the hands of a loving God. – And that all we have to do is welcome them in our hearts, until we are together Once more.

    You are truly amazing, Phil! For all you share with everyone here.

    Thank you, Catherine. Yes, that is indeed comforting.

  3. Marvin Says:

    Fantastic interview with James Van Praagh. As a Reiki practitioner I must concur with James on the point of the power of forgiveness. It is the one of the keystones to healing and perhaps one aspect which is least well understood. It is only in the release of guilt, shame and regret that we can truly realize our divine nature and move from suffering to peace. Congratulations to James for making this point so well. I look forward to reading your book.

  4. Phil Bolsta Says:

    I’m glad you enjoyed it, Marvin. Your comment prompted me to add a link to the end of James’ post to Eva Kor’s forgiveness story. Thanks.
