FLEMINGTON, NJ - “Heaven” means different things to different people.

For Clifford Michaels, author of Harnessing Heaven: How One Reluctant Wall-Streeter Tapped the Power of the Hereafter, it’s a spiritual realm, one that is on the cusp of discovery for anyone who is willing to search for it.

Michaels will hold a book signing on Thursday at Al Fresco's at The Shoppes on Reaville Avenue here from 7 to 9 p.m. The event is free; proceeds from any book sales will be donated to Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center.

Michaels is a Flemington resident. He started his career as a Wall Street trader before moving into private practice. He has a degree in finance from Syracuse University and an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh.

By following the seven principles in his book, Michaels believes anyone can follow the same steps he took to awaken and pursue the path of a closer relationship with the hereafter.

Harnessing Heaven combines guidance from the spiritual realm with practical lessons that enable readers to discover their own path in life. These lessons, along with insights from Michaels’ own spiritual awakening, provide wisdom and a road map for humanity.

Harnessing Heaven addresses issues that divide us, such as abortion and global warming, as well as the reasons for existence in creativity, love and the infinite development of knowledge.“We are all connected whether we think so or not,” Michaels says.

In his book, Michaels shares his own journey toward spiritual awakening, which began with the aftermath of Sept. 11 and continued after a diagnosis of kidney cancer. He first denied, then acknowledged, and finally embraced and interacted with “heavenly” forces through a series of encounters, relationships and a renewed sense of purpose and acceptance.

Michaels’ seven principles provide tangible steps and takeaways for readers to live a life of purpose, meaning, tolerance and understanding.

Harnessing Heaven and its core principles opens the door to discovering and mapping an ideal life path with confidence, conviction and passion.

A Man of 'Deep Pockets, Sterling Character'

To the editor:

At a meeting of Flemington Borough Council earlier this year, Mayor Phil Greiner described Jack Cust as a man of “deep pockets and sterling character.” He seemed to be attempting to justify his basis for selecting a new redeveloper, after the first two selected by a committee he was part of, or led, failed at the project. Initially the project was to find someone to ...

In response to the Governor's recent signing of legislation restricting law-abiding gun owners to 10 rounds of ammunition and rejecting calls to address the uneven playing field existing vis-à-vis some single mom alone with her child fending for herself against some armed assailant packing who knows how many rounds is something a Politburo thug would appreciate!

With more than 5 million Americans now living with Alzheimer’s and with more than 15 million acting as caregivers, Alzheimer’s has become the nation’s most expensive disease. This year alone, it will cost $277 billion to take care of those stricken. The Alzheimer’s Association predicts that, by 2050, more than 14 million Americans will be ...

Candidates 'Weaponized' News Article

To the editor:

I was dismayed to see my 2014 news reportage inaccurately weaponized by council members Marc Hain and Brooke Warden in their campaign flier attacking Al Brewer. The headline “School security at issue: Flemington-Raritan board member accused of leaking secrets” is less than a half-truth, given the ensuing revelation.

Marc and Brook ignored my follow-up report in ...
