The Medium Next Door:
Adventures of a Real-Life Ghost Whisperer
By Maureen Hancock
This was an interesting read. Maureen writes with the ease of speaking directly to the reader, making her book easy and a pleasure to read.
Born one of nine children in an Irish Catholic family, Maureen tells of being intuitive from an early age. She writes of coming from a lineage of intuitive women, including her mother and grandmother. As a child, Maureen experienced a serious illness which brought her near death. She feels this heightened her abilities, making her more sensitive.
Since accepting her gift of intuition and insight, Maureen Hancock has co-founded two charitable organizations. “Seeds of Hope” provides support for those with terminal illness. “Mission for the Missing” helps those with missing family members. She also does work with private investigators. A believer in holistic medicine and healing, she practices through her center “Pathways to Healing”, as well.
At the end of each chapter, Maureen offers exercises and instruction on using one’s own intuition, dreams and experiences in life to perhaps benefit the reader through what she has learned.
Maureen has a keen sense of humor, as well. In fact, she has done stand-up comedy. Her humor is reflected in her writing. She does well in balancing humor with the serious nature of the book.
Ultimately, it is up to the reader to decide their own beliefs. This is regarding psychics, "intuitives", the supernatural, and with all of life’s issues, those known and unknown.
