Show synopsis Allison DuBois, medium and inspiration for the Emmy award-winning BBC series Medium, tells us that if you want to understand life, you must understand death. In Secrets of the Monarch, she shows readers how communicating with the dead has taught her important lessons about life and how we can apply those principles to our lives. The monarch butterfly takes several generations to complete its migration patterns and ensure the survival of future butterflies, just like we must live good lives to ensure the future happiness of our children and their children. Although we are all products of our predecessors, Allison stresses that every person's life is part of a bigger story, stretching back past family and friends to society as a whole. By making the most of your life now, Allison says, you can positively affect that story. It is your legacy to pass the fire in your eyes and heart to your children, your siblings' children, your friends' children.
