By Mark Ireland
Despite being the son of renowned "Psychic to the Stars," Dr. Richard Ireland, Mark Ireland's life took a more conventional path until the unexpected death of his son Brandon plunged him into the world of mediums and psychics. Soul Shift: Finding Where the Dead Go by Mark Ireland is an intimate, personal account of a father's unbearable loss, and his journey towards a better understanding of death and acceptance of his son's fate.
While Mark Ireland loved his father, he chose to pursue a career as an advertising executive, shelving spiritualism in favor of a pragmatic approach to life. But on the day of his son's death he was disturbed by an ominous premonition regarding his son. With his worst fears later confirmed, Mark reentered his father's world, intent on connecting with the realms of spirit, and consulted a number of well-known psychics including Allison Dubois, the subject of NBC's hit show Medium. Proceeding with modest expectations, he was struck by the remarkably accurate information provided in these readings.
Soul Shift is an amazing story of psychic communication, which will bring comfort to the bereaved and cause even the most skeptical persons to broaden their views. The author's bold exploration of paranormal phenomena and evidence of life after death will touch many readers, and change their perspectives on death forever.

What readers have to say about Soul Shift
From Amazon: In A Class Of Its Own, June 9, 2009
By Christa (Illinois) - 
I have read countless books over the last couple of years, following my own brush with death, and a subtle but inexplicable shift in my own consciousness. And though I have read many heartwarming & convincing books by many who are connected to the afterlife in some way, this was without question absolutely the most amazing book I have come across yet. Mark Ireland has a very simple approach to reaching his viewing audience, so you're not left with a headache trying to decipher a lot of lofty "foreign language". Yet at the same time, a very polished and sophisticated style that doesn't leave you feeling like you're reading the sometimes elementary, recycled words of a million authors before him. This is truly a book that will grab you from the very first page and hold you captive until the very end. It might not sway the determined skeptic, but then again, nothing likely ever will. But for all of you who have any open mindedness whatsoever, I can almost guarantee it will leave you with a new perspective on life to consider, and a film of tears in your eyes.

Growing up I never gave death or the afterlife a whole lot of thought. Then came the horrific day of my sixteen-year old son's unexpected death. The thought of him sitting on a cloud looking down at me now seemed ridiculous. As his Mom, I had always known exactly where he was at all times and I didn't want this to change. I have no doubt that he is in his own Heaven and that he is happy, healthy and that he is with God. But I still wanted to know MORE! I began reading EVERYTHING I could find about the afterlife. I was even given books on '7 Steps to Get over the Death of a Child'. These books for me were ludicrous. Many written by authors that had never lost a child or even been a parent. Believe me there is NO getting over the loss of your child!
Then I found 'Soul Shift: Finding Where the Dead Go' by Mark Ireland. What an outstanding book! Mark's father was the famous psychic Dr. Richard Ireland. Having gone in a different direction than his Dad Mark decided to become a businessman. But after his son's Brandon unexpected death he began a journey to research his roots and many other possibilities to help him. This book blends science, faith and spirituality into one. I must say that of all the books I have read I loved this one best. Mark speaks from the heart as a father who has experienced this unbearable pain personally. His journey to find where the dead go offers hope and evidence that death is not the end of our existence. This book not only made me feel better, but it just makes sense!
