“Ward Barcafer Jr. has done it again. In this intimate journal of his experiences with his deceased love, Suzette, and his spirit guides, Ward walks us through spirit to spirit connection and communication that has no barriers separating the earthly and ethereal realms. Suzette selflessly shares with us, through Ward, what life is like for a soul in the Cathedral of Souls, the residency of the afterlife. I have had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Ward several times, and his message is pure and genuine. In fact, that which Ward writes about has been verified by other authors and speakers who have received messages back from departed loved ones, or who have had near death experiences themselves. I am thankful to Ward for continuing to share the messages from his guides and Suzette. If you have any interest in what happens after we leave our earthly bodies, or about a being’s abilities to reach out to the physical realm, please take a look at Beyond the Veil to Heaven: Inexplicable Manifestations and Signs from a Woman’s Transition to Heaven While Maintaining Earthly Life Connections and Ward’s latest, Beyond Earth Through Heaven’s Gates: Communication and Insights from Our Spiritual World.”

5.0 out of 5 stars There is Life After Death and there is research to prove it.

“My name is Ward Edward Barcafer Jr., and Suzette Delashmet Shockley, my wife for thirty-three wonderful, loving years of marriage, passed away following a brain tumor operation. I was filled with grief and desolation, and I swore that I knew for certain I would never see or hear from her again. Boy, was I wrong. The second night after her passing, some inexplicable manifestations and signs from her started to occur, and quite frankly, these left me wondering about what was happening.

This opening paragraph to Ward Barcafer’s latest book, Beyond Earth Through Heaven’s Gates: Communication and Insights from Our Spiritual World describes the premise of this interesting and informative book.

The book is set up in an easy to read style that covers not only the communications that occur between Ward and his late wife, Sue, it also includes the research Ward did to make sure he wasn’t losing his mind when she started communicating with him from beyond the grave. As a reader, this information becomes invaluable to understanding the concept of Life After Death.

Ward talks about the various types of communication he has with Sue, and he also brings in Spirit Guides who help influence his life and his understanding of what Sue is talking about. My favorite sections are Spirit Interventions (Chapter 8) and Because of Love (Chapter 9). We often think that once someone leaves this world that there won’t be any more advise or that they can’t influence our lives anymore. These two chapters bring home the fact that just because a loved one has moved to another dimension does not mean they forget about us.

If you want a different view on Life After Death, I recommend Beyond Earth Through Heaven’s Gates. Ward has channeled his wife Sue so that we, the living, can better understand that there is Life after this reality.”

5.0 out of 5 stars After Death – What happens?
Reviewed in the United States on August 28, 2018

“I found this book absolutely fascinating! The information that is provided by Ward Barcafer’s wife Sue along with Spirit Guides gives a look at what happens to us when we “die”. Essentially, there is no death but rather a transformation to a new life. We continue to live on and learn ever more about “eternity” and “infinity”, Love as the source of everything, and even about other beings, worlds and universes. Mr. Barcafer cites numerous other sources of information through the ages that support his wife’s information related to “the other side” or Heaven. For anyone who is sincere in wanting to find a broadened view and understanding of Life, this book will open up fascinating information and understanding!

“I am beyond thrilled to see a book of this caliber written about ADC (ater death communication) and NDE (near death experiences). This author had absolutely no idea of my own personal experiences with these events when he asked me to read and review this book. I know that these events happen quite often but people are afraid to talk about them for fear of being thought they’re crazy. I know without a doubt that there is a parallel world very near our own of our dearly departed and that they not only communicate with us, but also protect us with warnings. The wonderful man that I married (30 years ago ) was a direct result of my departed and beloved grandmother prompting me to “open my eyes and see what a wonderful man I had within my grasp” … after us being best friends for over 12 years. He also happens to be the younger brother of my husband who passed away in 1976. I could go on and on with my NDE’s and ADC and how they’ve comforted me and directed me in my best interests. I implore you to read this book and to read it with an open mind. I believe our relationships with our beloved who have passed on can continue throughout eternity. Love does not end at physical death and this story is a great example of just that. Thank you Ward Barcafer, Jr. for having th courage to write about your experiences. Highly recommend this book. And no, I do not believe in seances or fortune tellers.”

“I had the rich opportunity to interview Ward Barcafer Jr, on two radio podcasts on International Angels Network regarding both this book and his second book: Beyond Earth Through Heaven’s Gates: Communication and Insights from Our Spiritual World. Ward’s interviews brought both of these books to life! Ward’s visits from his deceased wife, Suzette taught him, and luckily us through his writing, about life after life, and the capability of spirit to reach across the ethereal realm into our physical realm. I appreciated Ward’s inclusion of the struggles he went through trying to make sense of the events he was experiencing, whether it be sounds or lights waking him from his sleep or seeing Suzette appear in front of him. While Beyond the Veil to Heaven: Inexplicable Manifestations and Signs from a Woman’s Transition to Heaven While Maintaining Earthly Life Connections is Ward’s narrative of his life experiences with Suzette as spirit, any of us who have lost a loved one or are planning to die ourselves, can extrapolate that there is life after life, and that we too will be able to reach out to our loved ones here in the physical realm. When my father passed away, my mother read Ward’s book over and over finding comfort in Suzette’s words. As an intuitive, I, too, have had experiences with Spirit Guides, communicating with others who have passed over. With my knowledge of the spirit realm, I can attest that Ward Barcafer (thanks to Suzette) is an authority in the field of what happens after we die.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful testament to the healing power of love
Reviewed in the United States on February 24, 2017

“As I write this review, it has been just over a year since the author, Ward Barcafer, lost his beloved wife, Suzette. I am astounded at the immense accomplishment of writing and publishing this book in a year that many of us who have lost a loved one know, can be the most difficult time of your life. This book is a tender record of the communications that Ward has had with his wife since her death, and a helpful resource for those who seek to identify and validate the signs and symbols that our loved ones who have passed may use to communicate with us. Moreover, this book is a powerful testament to the healing power of love; a love that doesn’t die, but continues on in ways that are as available to each of us as they are mysterious and inexplicable.”



Reviews for: Conversations From Heaven


“This book is dedicated to all those who have lost a loved one and are grieving. This is a book to help you understand that life continues on, that who they were, their personality, continues on in a different realm that we here on earth call Heaven.

There is no death as we think of it.”

Comforting words to help those of us who have experienced the loss of a loved one.

Once again Ward Barcafer channels his wife, Sue Barcafer, who died in 2016. Even though Mr. Barcafer includes a section on life in Heaven, for me, the best parts of the book are in the Unconditional Love and Consciousness sections.

Under Unconditional Love, the “Value of Imperfection” helps me realize that perfect is not mandatory for getting into Heaven. The idea that imperfection helps with personal growth to make me a better person was freeing. The part on bad things happening to good people was enlightening. Everyone is on their own path and understanding and being unconditional love is paramount to our quality of life on earth as well as in Heaven.

In Consciousness, the spirit, soul consciousness connection is further explored. How the ego interferes with our spiritual growth is well addressed. How thoughts are instantaneous and affect our life because there is no lag time between thoughts and consciousness reminds me of how important thoughts are.

This book is a bit different in that it offers plenty of space for me to make notes and / or write down my thoughts about the different concepts that are presented. For a topic as deep as life after death, this is a thoughtful addition to the book.


I bought this book from the author.

Conversations From Heaven: Advice and Guidance from My Beloved Wife by Ward Edward Barcafer, Jr. is the third in a series of books that address life after death. It provides communications to Barcafer from Suzette Shockley-Barcafer, his late wife of thirty-three years, which describe heaven and the life of the soul after the death of the body. Topics include unconditional love; the purpose of our life on earth; our true identity as soul, spirit, and consciousness; the role of free will; the makeup of the universe; life on other planets; reincarnation; and the progress of our souls after death including those of children. The essential message is that we are not our bodies and that learning to love each other unconditionally is our purpose on earth.

The immortality of the soul is a topic that has engaged human thought since ancient times. Though understood differently, it is a shared teaching of many world religions as well as native and tribal beliefs. Ward Edward Barcafer, Jr. offers a beautiful image of life after death, one which would greatly comfort those who have lost a loved one, especially children. The concept that we are here on earth to learn how to love unconditionally is one that my own faith embraces. With the turmoil in the world and the increasingly divisive political, racial, and religious conflicts seeming to surround us, the calming messages of love, hope, and faith which Barcafer records in Conversations From Heaven are just what we need. “Just have faith that there is a grand plan to life and it will unfold eventually.” I couldn’t agree more.
