"Author Ray Catania shares his journey of "inspiration,
transformation and the pursuit of enlightenment" in the
nonfictional work, The Atheist and the Afterlife-An Autobiography.
He tells his story with honesty, with a gritty sense, but always
based on Truth. He shares how his childhood developed into an
atheistic belief system. However, through some amazing occurrences
in his life, he learned to trust the visions and messages he
received, transforming this belief system. Over time, he embraced
the practice of meditation, leading him to embrace the gift of
becoming a clairvoyant medium. This transformation is told through
his sharing of personal stories, illustrating the evolution of his
abilities." - Deborah Lloyd for Readers' Favorite
"I liked how Ray was articulate in describing the events that led to his change in beliefs to the universal collective consciousness structure. He was open and vulnerable-and vulnerability, in my opinion, is an authentic trigger for inspiration-in how he talked about the events he experienced, his moments of self-doubt, and eventually how he got to accept the reality of the laws of the universe." - Jachike Samuelson for The Online Book Club"The Atheist and the Afterlife is a thought-provoking book about recognizing and embracing one's unusual gifts." - Carolina Ciucci - Forward Reviews"Catania's text is distinctive in many ways - notably, its focus on the evolution of one individual's spiritual and metaphysical beliefs. The author offers multiple straightforward steps for readers to implement, despite a fairly enigmatic topic. His recommendations are articulate and represent a strength for this text." - The Book Life Prize Editor
"These light-hearted moments provide levity in a memoir that too many may feel heavy. I'm grateful for this book dropping into my lap and I am certain it was no coincidence." - Jamie Michele for Readers Favorite
"This book shows the reality of awakening, which is not always smooth and pleasant, and can be full of doubt and disbelief. Ray walks us through his psyche as he navigates this opening of consciousness (or 'awareness') and offers details of this raw experience plus the scientific angle. And his theory of dark energy will certainly make you think." - Tania Berg - Host of Life Continuing Podcast
