Description
Through telepathic communication with Jerry Garcia, legendary member of the Grateful Dead, Wendy Weir, sister of Dead guitarist Bob Weir, presents Jerry's deep, loving, and often humorous insights from the realm of spirit and his wishes not only for the band that has become a cultural phenomenon but for each and every one of us. Early one morning in August 1995, Bob Weir called his sister and asked her to check in on Jerry Garcia, who had died only hours before. At first she could not talk to Jerry's spirit because it was too happy to be free. Only with the telepathic help of her brother was she able to break through Jerry's barriers and remind him that he couldn't leave--he still needed to fulfill his mission on Earth. Thus began an illuminating and introspective three-year journey with the spirit of Jerry Garcia.          The messages Wendy has received from Jerry are amazing: he urges the remaining members of the band to continue without him and says their greatest and most important work is still in front of them. He explains why he stayed on Earth so long, even though he was in pain; his intention to use Wendy as an example for others to learn from; and how, in his death, he has in fact become "the grateful dead," which heralds the band's rebirth.          Wendy Weir captures not only the wisdom of Jerry Garcia but also the playful, irreverent, conversational tone that his fans will immediately respond to. She relays his messages in a straightforward, easy manner, allaying the doubts of those who may be skeptical of the reality of her experiences, while at the same time reassuring those most eager to believe in the continued vitality of Jerry Garcia and his ability to communicate with those on the other side. Wendy Weir was fourteen years old when she first heard her brother's plan to play in the rock band that would become the Grateful Dead. Her own life took her into careers in finance and environmental education. During this time, she quietly developed her psychic abilities while staying in close contact with her brother Bob, Jerry, and the Dead. She lives in California. Placing my feet flat on the ground, I straighten my back to allow the energies to flow easily up and down my spine, hold my head erect with eyes closed, and rest my hands peacefully on my thighs. I start to inhale slowly through my nose, breathing deeply into my lungs, holding my breath for a few seconds, then exhaling through my mouth. I repeat this several times until my body and mind are fully relaxed. Then I gently shift my focus to the inner space behind my sixth chakra (the energy center located on the forehead just above and between the eyes), clear my head of all thoughts, and raise the frequency of my energy. Entering into a meditative state, I silently call Jerry's name.          Almost instantly, I see Jerry's spirit. It looks like a brilliant, white-gold beam radiating out from a center of pure light. Free at last from the weight and pain of his physical body, he is in a powerful state of ecstasy.Through telepathic communication with Jerry Garcia, legendary member of the Grateful Dead, Wendy Weir, sister of Dead guitarist Bob Weir, presents Jerry's deep, loving, and often humorous insights from the realm of spirit and his wishes not only for the band that has become a cultural phenomenon but for each and every one of us.
