"I just finished rereading volume 1, to set the stage for volume 2. I had forgotten enough of volume 1 to make the reread interesting. I particularly appreciated Richard Wright’s context for understanding these experiences as “possibly unique to Michael.” Whether unique to Michael or true for all of us, I find this reading beneficial to me spiritually, and I hope to read many more." (Joe Meboe, HI, USA)
"I have just read your book and I couldn't put it down!
Finally, a book that describes what I have known for 24 years, but
never able to tell anyone. I have been visiting the other side for
24 years, and actually live a dual life...one here and one there.
I travel every night--not just in my dream state, but through out-of-body
experiences that I can remember. I have a house, a job, and have
met my twin flame who is on the other side. We live and love like
people do here on Earth, only it is different. The mind is very
powerful there, and everyone knows how to use their abilities. All
I have to do is think about a place, and bam, I am there. Mental
telepathy is also very strong there, and some people communicate
that way instead of using vocal words. The more I learn about life
on the other side, the more I can validate this book. I have been
to doctors and dentists and counselors on the other side, so I feel
much better about the fact that my experiences are not just fantasies
Thank you for such a wonderful book! I look forward to the next
one that will come out, and perhaps, I might even get to meet Michael!
For those that are willing to believe, this book can answer the
questions and help bridge the gap between 'life' and 'death'. We
humans are coming so close to remembering ourselves and our past,
and this book does a great job of triggering memories that we have
from long ago.
Thanks again and God Bless!

"Regarding Robert's book, I am taking my time and savoring
it. I take a break and digest what I have read, but it is very difficult
waiting for the next opportunity to pick up the book again.
So far, it all rings true. You know how it is. You wait for
that one thing that hits a sour note with your beliefs. It hasn't
happened. I love this book. Please thank Michael and Robert and
thanks to you, James for your involvement and to everyone else that
I do not yet know. Thank you. This book has given me a new lease
on life. Thank you for that.
I am just very happy to know you. Some of what I am reading
I feel is meant for me as well for it goes straight into my heart.
I feel as though I have been summoned to you and to the book so
that I can begin to work on my next level and this book has acted
as an awakening, a catalyst in my own development. I feel renewed,
invigorated, and also an overwhelming sense of peace. Each person's
path is distinctly his own, yet not unlike others in that we each
must take up our cross and go toward our destiny as we learn how
to be more of benefit to others as well as ourselves.
I have always maintained that I grow greatly whenever I help
another to grow. It is I who is doing the most growing when this
happens. I have learned to solve my own problems by applying myself
to the problems of others. Helping others gives me the opportunity
to be objective, to help resolve their issues, decide courses of
action and better ways to think and then turn it around on myself
unflinchingly. It becomes easier to understand what I need to do
myself. I always recommend when someone has a problem they ask themselves
what would I tell my best friend to do?" (Carolyn B. Shipley,
"Robert Murray, with his skill and talent in interacting
with non-physical energies for some period of years, knows what
some of us are discovering along our own life paths; After learning
to move through the different levels, and interacting with Helpers,
Guides, Friends and Family on the other side, there is little more
that one needs to search for, to come to a core understanding that
we are indeed 'Much more than our physical bodies,' as Bob Monroe's
affirmation starts with.
I have a great respect for Robert Murray and others who are
working to bring this information to the general public; this is
a tough act to sell in our conventional society. The good news is
that many people have started to search, in a less structured, less
orthodox, less doctrinal way, for some measure of understanding
about why we live our physical lives, with all the grief, sadness,
joy, frustration, love, pain, beauty and sorrow that we find in
our lives." (Jim

"...I cannot find the words to truly explain the overwhelming
feeling I have when I read these channeled experiences. I have
tried to talk with my friends about the book and your magazine,
but they just don't want to believe. However, I believe. I
must let you know how much this channeled information means
to me, and to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I first
discovered channeled info from Edgar Cayce (I named my little dog
after him, Cayce) and Shirley Maclaine. I found your Web site
while surfing the Web last year. I immediately purchased
your book! It has changed my life. I often recall
the words Michael has said and use his experiences to try and incorporate
them into my own life. I have read many books about crossing
over, but none have shed the light on experiences such as these. Now
I ask myself, why would crossing over end our experiences to
grow? It just makes sense that we MUST learn life's lessons
to love without judgement and respect all beings...If I could reach
through this notebook monitor, I would give you (James) and your
father a great big hug. Thank you for being here, and listening
to that there is to hear. I am so excited about these
readings! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Peace, Love and
Light to you. BTW, JFK was an amazing interview!! How very
lucky you are to be a part of this channeling/drawing experience!
I wish I were so lucky!"

"What I wanted to say about the book--oh there were so
many things. First off, I haven't been this jazzed about a book
since I first read Bruce
Moen's first book. And that's something for me to say because
I read a lot. This book rang so true for me since I do explore the
afterlife and I do do soul retrievals for those who are stuck.
Now, I only have Robert Monroe's focus levels to go by and they are from focus
23 (where souls get stuck in the lower realms), focus 24, 25, 26
(the Belief System Territories where there is every conceivable
place where 'like attracts like', therefore false heavens, false
hells and so many more, and then focus 27 which according to Bob
Monroe, Bruce Moen, and my own explorations, is where the souls
are supposed to go and this is where we bring them when doing a
In reading the book, I was constantly trying to place which
of the focus levels they were on. Now it seems to me, that these
focus levels, according to Michael's narratives, are all intermixed
and one can get from one to another by means of an elevator, a gate,
etc. I'd had in my mind before a level picture of one above another,
but I can see now that this isn't so. They are basically on one
level, but just in different areas with ways to get there from the
same level -- in others words, they don't have to go UP physically
(or nonphysically rather), but go UP in other ways. I think you
understand what I'm trying to say. LOL Anyway, this makes perfect
sense to me.
There were so many things in the book that I had wanted to write
about, but can't think of them right now. Michael saying that the
prayers are so warm and comforting, was the first I have ever read
about prayers being felt there. I got such a kick out of Sonny Bono's
life there with his restaurant, etc. And dear Elvis. And all the
other entertainers. The village of Coventry which was stuck in time
-- a Belief System Territory, Michael's reviewing past lives (which
I had thought would only be in focus 27) and so much more. I've
learned so much more from the book and that's why I didn't want
it to end.
Please let me know as soon as possible when the next one is
out as I want one of the first ones sold. Thank you so very much,
thank Robert, and please ask him to thank Michael for me."

"One evening while reading The Stars Still Shine, I closed the book and said aloud 'how am I supposed to think this is a serious message to me when he's (Michael's) hanging out with Elvis Presley all the time?' ... I decided to put the book down and watch TV. I turned on the TV just as a special 2-hour program was starting... Elvis Lives! - a tribute concert. I just stared at Elvis singing in all his glory for what seemed an endless time, sort of shocked. Then I just laughed and laughed and said 'okay, you win...I hear you!' Who says the other side doesn't have a sense of humor." (Gail L., MA, USA)
"It's a fascinating story..." (Glenda Grant, President, Hearst Entertainment Productions)
"...I just wanted to let you know I got the copy of The
Stars Still Shine, read it from cover to cover in a few days.
I actually started slowing down, pacing my reading, so that I could
savor it. What a good read! If you can, tell the
author(s) how fascinating and well written this book was to me.
Instead of winged shady light beings hopping deliriously from cloud
to cloud, we get what seems to be clear and solid information about
the afterlife. I'm certain without a doubt that Michael is
experiencing what he says he is...I'm eagerly looking forward to
the next book in the series..." (Vicki Talbott, Washington,
"...I have to tell you how much the recent chapters touched
my heart... I recently lost a friend, who was the person I wrote
about in Miracles and Mountains to Climb, another book of
mine. He had been a mountain climber. When I read of Michael climbing
up on straight rock, I was comforted. Loran had taught me to mountain
climb, and has recently died. I hope they have mountains for people
like him. Then the following chapter was on Princess Diana and her
castle where she has the families staying who have adopted the children
from the D.R. This corroborates my information on what Diana has
said about her work in the afterlife. She said she works with young
children, babies who have recently passed over. This was in her
letters to both William and Harry. She also said that the palaces
were something to rave about. Now truthfully, I thought she was
just saying that to comfort Harry and didn't picture Diana in any
castle, just in spirit form somehow. It gave me a lot to think about,
and is comforting to see her selfless service in a meaningful way
continue, as well as her peace work with me where she gives her
Ambassador's advice to the world leaders...Well, it has been an
absolutely fascinating ride through the afterlife with Michael.
Thanks again." (Marcia

"I loved the book and could not put it down.
In fact, I read the entire book in one evening. I hope
there will be another one written soon."
(Therese M. Horn, Maryland, USA)
"I finished reading it in 2 days! The book is fantastic.
I have read other books that talked about the 7 'levels' and vibrations
before so I found it fascinating to read and hear a first hand account
of what some of it is like. Michael sounds like a fun loving person,
and though it may no longer apply, 'very down to earth!' I look
forward to more books about Michael's adventure, and what happens
next. It certainly is reassuring that loved ones we thought lost
or gone are not, that our spirit continues on, that our purpose
to grow and help and make a difference continues on also!...thanks
to Mr. Robert Murray and, of course, Michael for continuing to keep
in touch!" (Karen Young, Alberta, Canada)
"...my passion revolves around expanding
our awareness of the nature of reality, and your book is precious
in this regard. It goes down easy, and sprinkles intriguing insights
along the way." (Laurie Pentell, Sageheart Alliance , Resources for Evolutionary Living,
"...incredible book...like a portal to the
other world. Every page was fascinating. It reawakened my spirituality.
The messages from this book have to get out there."
(J.F., Georgia, USA)
"I enjoyed The Stars Still Shine very
much. There is plenty to think about-interesting ideas. Now, of
course, I'm waiting for the next book to find out how Michael is
doing and progressing." (E.G.B.,Vermont, USA)
"My only problem...is I have to wait for
the next book or books to be released. I can hardly wait to continue
Michael's journey..." (R.R., Québec, Canada)
"...I really enjoyed it. I do have a lot
of questions though, like where can I learn to dream travel?"
(H.E., Québec, Canada)
"I really enjoyed the book...a lot of it
was very real for me...I have learned, or should I say, remembered
a whole lot over the past two years...so much about heaven, or wherever
it is we go. Your book was very interesting..."
(J.K., Florida, USA)
"...a lady friend of mine lost a companion
in a diving accident 4 years ago. She is still very attached to
the memory of the good friend. Would you be good enough to send
her your book with a dedication. I would not be surprised that she
would visit you some day..." (J.B., Québec, Canada)
"...it is not that bad up (or down) there.
I'll probably be able to carry on making stain glass up there when
I go." (W.M., Ontario, Canada)
"...(she) was going into surgery last week
and she said her husband's mother who has been deceased for many
years, came to her and told her not to worry that she was going
to make sure everything turned out okay. I don't believe she would've
shared that with me had she not seen your book."
