What are The Joseph Communications?

‘The Joseph Communications’ is the term used to collectively describe the eight internationally-acclaimed spiritual books 'authored' by Joseph - a discarnate spirit who is the spokesperson for a highly-evolved 'group soul' from a higher vibration of reality - and delivered through the trance mediumship of Michael G. Reccia.

Written in contemporary, concise, no-nonsense language, and offering a non-denominational spiritual - rather than religious - perspective, the Communications provide invaluable insights that speak to the heart and soul, exploring and explaining our spiritual origins in detail, reigniting our dormant capabilities, and offering a reconnected way of life that allows individuals to create positive change and growth for themselves, for all souls on Earth, and for the planet itself.

Joseph's Communications have been collected into eight volumes:

Revelation | Illumination | Your Life After Death | the Fall

Trance Mission | From Here To Infinity | Many Voices, One Mission | the Spaces Between

The Joseph Communications are available in English worldwide as paperbacks, ebooks and audiobooks. Spanish translations of selected paperbacks, ebooks and audiobooks from the series, plus selected paperbacks in Dutch are also available.Translations into additional languages are planned - if you wish to be informed of future developments we invite you to join our mailing list(see below).

The Joseph Communications are published and distributed by the Band of Light, a core group of four individuals who receive no monies from sales. All revenue is used to enable further publishing, advertising, promotion and distribution of the books to take place.

Who is Joseph?

Joseph is a highly evolved spirit ‘guiding influence’ – a person who, having lived and died many times on Earth, has moved into and through the spirit dimensions beyond this ‘reality’, but who is so deeply concerned about the fate of the individual, of humankind, and of the Earth, that he has chosen to ‘return’ to deliver vital information from the perspective of his higher realm of consciousness through trance medium Michael G. Reccia.

Joseph is concerned not only for our individual personal happiness and wellbeing, but also for the future of our planet, which crucially hangs in the balance at this time.

He wishes us to rediscover who we really are and why we are here and, by understanding and realising our full spiritual potential, to help ourselves and each other, and to ultimately transform, regenerate and save the Earth.

'My name is Joseph. I have been in the spirit realms for thousands of years and, as I climbed the spiritual ladder, many things were revealed to me. I was made aware of the origins of Creation, the reasons for the Earth being there and the nature of man and his soul. It was pointed out to me that there were many things wrong with the Earth plane: that souls were returning there for the wrong reasons; that they were not learning; that they had become trapped in a cycle of existence and had turned their backs on the true God – the God within them.'

'My reason for contacting the Earth plane again is a simple one: I care. My existence is within a sphere of peaceful vibration. Am I at peace? No, because I am concerned about your world, about the souls on the Earth – about you. We cannot (as part of you, as part of God) turn our backs on the situation – this is why we come back constantly to attempt to change things. My intention is to bring an argument for Light into the darkness and to give you some indication of your abilities as a child of God so that you permeate your physical reality with enough Light to sustain yourselves and to sustain the planet.'

'Things cannot continue in your world as they are. You are still killing each other; you are strangling the planet and you are ignoring your spirituality. There is greater urgency with us as time goes on on your level of consciousness – there is at the moment a great potential for destruction. Destruction has come to the Earth before – it came during my time but it also came long before that. Man is far older in physical form than you realize and my reason for visiting you and expending so much energy is to make sure that there is not a third time. These are the two choices you have: Do something, or do nothing – and the Earth will die. You do not have an infinite number of tomorrows in which to put things right. You have to begin now.'

Who is Michael?

Michael G. Reccia has worked as a spirit medium for over thirty-five years, in his early days using his gift to deliver messages at regular services for spiritualist churches throughout the UK, to lecture and hold workshops at a variety of venues and to conduct private reading sessions for individuals at his home. He also offered international 'remote postal readings' that required him to sit in an empty room with nothing more than a photograph of the 'sitter' and to record the messages that were given to him from the spirit dimensions on behalf of that person.

In 2005 Michael forged a conscious ink with Joseph and began to bring through The Joseph Communications. Initially the association was a clairvoyant and clairaudient one. However, during Joseph’s dictation for his second book, Illumination, the link developed into a deeper trance connection, with Michael vacating his mind and body during each communication session so that Joseph could take over his physical and mental faculties to deliver his addresses directly to the Band of Light and, via them, to the world.

Michael isn't comfortable with the word 'channeller' as he feels the material currently put out under that label across the world varies in quality from the sublime to the ridiculous. He regards himself instead as a simple but spiritually disciplined conduit through which the messages of Joseph and the thoughts and observations of other highly evolved spirit guides can flow (Please refer to the section covering mediumship on our FAQ page to discover more about Michael's personal mediumistic process). 

Michael views the delivery and promotion of The Joseph Communications as his life’s 'mission', and a pivotal contribution to the elevation of individual and global spiritual consciousness. He is grateful to witness The Joseph Communications being recognised and read/listened to increasingly across the world.

When not in a trance state (or recovering from one), Michael loves: Jane, mankind, his fellow Band of Light members, art, animals, eating out, film, model making, reading …and finding the time to occasionally pause and draw breath.

What is the Band of Light?

‘The Band of Light’ (BOL) is the title Joseph gave to the core group of individuals responsible for making The Joseph Communications available to every soul on Earth by publishing and distributing Joseph's messages worldwide.

The four founding members of the Band of Light are Michael, Jane, David and Tony. They are supported by a small team of tireless individuals across the world who are also dedicated to sharing Joseph's messages.

The Band of Light receives no monies from sales. All revenue is used to further publishing, advertising, promotion and distribution of the Communications.
