--Larry Dossey, M.D., Author
The Extraordinary Power of Ordinary Things
"As a child I had a near-death experience and as an adult experienced a past life. I am grateful for what they taught me about life. Touched By the Extraordinary gives us all the chance to share this experience and the wisdom it provides, as it helps us to understand."
--Bernie Siegel, Author of 365 Prescriptions For The Soul & Help Me To Heal
"I love to listen to Susan Apollon's Touched By The Extraordinary's CD's when my multiple sclerosis acts up because her soothing voice can relax me and put me into a whole new world. It is as if she is right there with me and she understands what I am going through."
--Terry L. Kovalchick Diagnosis:
"Touched by the Extraordinary is a gift of love and wisdom from Susan
for all us who are seeking new spiritual understandings. She tells remarkable
stories of premonitions of death, after-death communications, extraordinary
encounters with angels and of the healing power of prayer. She uses these
stories to teach us how to develop our own intuitions and spiritual insights. I
personally was stunned and amazed by
Touched by the Extraordinary. It is itself an extraordinary book. As a
society, we are only just starting to learn how to fully use our brains to
understand our spiritual selves. This book is an essential step in catalyzing a
new spiritual paradigm in our society. Read this book. It can change your life."
-- Melvin Morse, M.D.
Near-Death Researcher and Author of "Closer to the Light" and "Where God Lives"
"Touched by the Extraordinary was not only interesting but also very
touching. I was able to laugh, feel sad, feel enlightened - and, most of
all, not feel so alone on my path of grieving. It validates my feelings,
dreams and visions. I now know I am not crazy. I hope people will open their
minds to what Susan has written. When I speak of signs from Stephen, I want
people to be happy for me. I don't want them rolling their eyes, thinking I
am nuts. I want them to feel joy for me. With the stories in this book
perhaps my own stories won't seem so strange and bizarre to others."
-- Carol Connelly
Mom of Stephen (1985–2002)
"Touched by the Extraordinary was written with such warmth and love. I
felt Susan was talking directly to me, sharing her all that she has learned over
the years. Susan takes a difficult subject and presents it in an easy to
-- Josey Rosenthal
"If you have had inexplicable nonordinary experiences and wondered what they
Touched by the Extraordinary will serve you well. Apollon's book will
help each reader to discover and learn to live more fully from his or her
greater self in a more meaningful and connected manner."
-- Rhea A. White
Founder and Director of Exceptional Human Experience Network, Inc.
"For anyone who has ever struggled with self-doubts and feelings of
helplessness, this is an important book. It explains how the power of healing
prayer and the compassion for all living things can create miracles, both
medical and spiritual."
-- Kim Kurz
Singer and Writer
"Touched by the Extraordinary escorts the reader inward to an assured,
settled, knowing place. Once there, one reconnects, refocuses and remembers the
capacity to see, sense, feel, and joyfully experience the external life and love
-- Josi Feit
Metastatic Cancer Survivor
"In a world in which phenomena elude the human eye, and the rational and
cynical mind casts aside that which cannot be explained, yet the heart is moved
and the soul yearns for embracing, Susan has compassionately and courageously
brought her wealth of experience as a therapist, and her many personal
encounters with the extraordinary to the reader. She is a healer who has touched
a myriad of lives in her travels, and her extraordinary work lovingly offers her
credo that we can bring forth the Divine and create miracles in our own lives."
-- Rabbi Andrew R. Sklarz, MA, MSW
"Susan beautifully illustrates that the 'Energy of Love' is the key component
to the wisdom of intuition. Through dozens of personally related experiences,
Susan guides the reader to the realization that Love can break through the
barriers of time and space and it is Love which allows miracles to happen. By
the time the reader finishes this book he or she will not only 'believe' in the
possibilities of miracles but will 'expect' a miracle."
-- Susan DeLorenzo
"I believe that if anything is to turn the tide of humankind to a better way
of living in this miraculous world, it is the power of story. More than science,
religion, philosophy, or history, it is story that speaks to us and changes us,
and opens us to all the other realms of being that can only be touched in this
manner. Susan Apollon has crafted a beautiful collection of stories that offer a
wealth of reflective soul food for those who wonder about our connection with
the afterlife - and who doesn't?"
-- Susan Chernak McElroy
Author of "Animals as Teachers and Healers "
"Susan Apollon's book renews, re-establishes, and, most importantly,
re-spiritualizes our lives. Losing, first, a husband and, then, my only child,
is pain too incomprehensible for most people. Without her understanding of a
greater spiritual world, I would still be drowning in darkness and despair."
-- Sandra Esner
President of Angels Without Wings
"Touched by the Extraordinary gives compelling and comforting evidence
of the continuation and expansion of individuated life force. Her work comes
from many years of service to humanity and through careful and exhaustive
investigation, she leads the reader towards acceptance of life as an eternal
process. Susan’s contributive work is part of our collective journey of
understanding the mystery of life."
-- Reverend Bruce Kellogg, Pastoral Care Minister
Christ Unity Church, Sacramento, CA
"As a child I had a near-death experience and as an adult experienced a
past-life. I am grateful for what they taught me about life.
Touched By The Extraordinary gives us all the chance to share this
experience and the wisdom it provides, as it helps us to understand. Read on and
open your mind to life and creation."
-- Bernie Siegel, MD
Author of 365 "Prescriptions For The Soul and Help Me To Heal"
"Combining her talents as a compassionate spiritual psychologist and
healer/researcher, Susan eloquently guides you down a journey where there are no
limits to experiences. With Susan I smiled and cried, learned and shared,
experienced pain and healing such a precious gift no one should let pass by."
-- Ellen Saracini
wife of Victor Saracini, captain of United Airlines Flight 175, hijacked by
terrorists on 9/11/2001
"Touched By The Extraordinary is a wonderful book that is a true guide
through the synchronicities of the extraordinary. Susan Apollon has written a
book that is a combination of instruction and uplifting stories so filled with
light, love and hope that I found if difficult to put it down."
-- Fiona Havlish
wife of Donald Havlish, 9/11/2001 World Trade Center victim
"I received your book in the mail yesterday and read almost half of it before
going to bed last night. Thank you so much! I love it! It has validated so many
things I see and feel. I lost my Dad in August of 2003, and although we are all
hanging in there, we were so close, and we miss him dearly. Mom and I have had
so many flickering lights and electrical "problems." It is just so reassuring to
know other people believe they are still with us. Right after Dad died, my
younger daughter, who was two years-old at the time, had so many experiences in
which I believe she really saw him. One night, she told us she was dancing with
Pop-Pop, and she also told us he sits on a bench in our kitchen and watches us
eat dinner every night. These experiences have faded as she is now four and a
half, but I know he was/is here with us." . . . P.S. The license plate story was
amazing, too. I have seen several license plates with my Dad's initials right
after thinking about him, and I always wondered if it was a "sign."
North Whales, PA
"Susan provides her audience with a spiritual roadmap of the metaphysical
world, sharing her own personal evolution and growth of consciousness. Her
stories and experiences bestow great comfort to those in despair and can help
each of us to boldly embrace our future and relinquish our fear of uncertainty."
-- Robert Sasson, M.D.
"I found Touched by the Extraordinary to be beautiful, thoughtful,
warm and stirring. This book is so personal that it reached within me to nudge
me forward on my own journey. Readers needing comfort will find it through
Susan's words and those that choose to read the book for pleasure will enjoy the

"In Touched by the Extraordinary, Susan Apollon shares a vital
therapeutic insight: we do not have to hold on to our grief in order to
maintain a sense of connection to our departed loved ones."
