From the Prologue:
This story is my very personal journey to wholeness which I humbly and respectfully share with you. As you read it, may you hear the whispers of your soul, remember how beautiful you really are, and express this beauty by embracing life passionately. May it inspire, delight, and contribute understanding of your own living and dying and that of your loved ones. — Josiane Antonette
This is a story of a woman's journey between the mundane world and the world of spirit. After a near-death experience, she discovered the ability to communicate with "the other side of life." Through the guidance of highly evolved beings and her own deceased ancestors and teachers, she travels between the two worlds and has come back to help us to remember the beauty of our own soul.
This powerful book offers unparalleled insights into the world of spirit and will contribute to the understanding of your own life and death and those of your loved ones. It will delight and inspire you to live your life according to your own unique vision of yourself!
Whispers of the Soul is about Josiane and her Journeys to the Other Side of Life, the passion for her work with the living and the dying, and her total connection with spirit. "Josiane's understanding of living and dying, and the spiritual realms has touched many people including me. During the production of the book, I was in tears and in joy, and I feel that everyone in the world should read her story." — Publisher's Comments

Whispers of the Soul: Journeys to the Other Side of Life

Reviewed by Rev. Dr. Sandra Gaskin
I felt strangely drawn to this book right away, which is always a good sign of receiving something that I truly need. By the end of the book, I was experiencing Godbumps i.e. goosebumps, & knew that I had definitely learned much by reading Ms. Antonettes story.
Josiane was born in France and raised for awhile by a spiritually intuitive grandmother. In early adulthood, she had a near-death experience which profoundly affected the rest of her life. Her circuitous route through personal growth, relationships, and healing ministries make for an exciting and inspiring adventure.
I found that I could not set the book down for long, eager to see where Spirit was leading this dedicated and compelling individual. The book culminates with her immersion into Native American culture, and I was literally swept away by the colorful descriptions of ritual and ceremony. It took me back to my own Cherokee tribal roots, and I could hear Spirit gently whispering, Remember... remember.
I highly recommend this book to all seekers along the Path. From novice to advanced teachers it will be a blessing to read. We all have unique and special stories to tell. Josiane Antonette shares hers so wonderfully!
A few of my favorite quotes from the book include:
(As Josiane is preparing for her guidance of the Sweat Lodge ceremony) When we sit down together in this lodge to commune with Great Spirit it doesnt matter what religions we each follow, or what cultures we are from. This is about living life right here and now, grounded on our planet where we are, as we are. We each may have different tools, different ways, but there is a part of us that is the same. In this lodge all are welcome; this lodge is open to every expression of the divine.
Spirituality is not an experience; it is what we are. Spirituality is getting in touch with the natural flow of our own lives and expressing that sacredness in our relationships, homes and working places. When we recognize the miracle of life in everything, we understand our connection with the whole. Then we create a sense of wonder in our every day liveswe create heaven on earth.
All lives are connected as one luminous web. Everything that grows, flies, swims, walks or crawls upon the earthevery blade of grass, every person, every creature, all flowers, everythingis interconnected. As we honor and clearly express ourselves fully, we honor all life, and we ensure the legacy of heaven on earth for future generations.
Angelic blessings & happy reading!
