James Martin Peebles, about 45 years of age.
I believe my recent Poll results are rather interesting, and about what I thought they would be.
84 % believe in Past Lives. 9% believed it to be unlikely.
27% have seen a UFO, while 17% believe they may have, but 55% have not.
65% believe there is a UFO government cover-up and only 10% said no.
And these answers to this question really brought a smile to me. Have you ever had a message from:
An Angel? 50%
A Deceased Loved One? 64%
A Spirit Guide? 50%
An Extraterrestrial? 7%
Now I suppose many who visit my Blog do so because they have an interest in spirituality and spiritual ideas, but I am happy to see that people are listening to the whispers of love coming from their angels, guides, and maybe most importantly for healing of grief, from a loved one.
Those messages from loved ones may bring a lot of comfort, even years after a loss. I always feel it gives validation to the fact that consciousness lives on after the shedding of the physical body. And also is a reminder that love does not die but lives on.
For those of us who do believe in past lives, we probably realize that we may have been of the opposite sex in another life time, even time and again. That idea often makes me think about those who are homophobic or so against the opposite sex in some way. Is it about fear? Maybe memories that are in the recesses of their mind that might bring forward fear of a past life situation, or fear that they may be of that sexual persuasion again.
Today, Dr. Peebles is a spirit guide to many. Almost twenty years ago, he had spoken to us during a channeling about the coming increase in contact with the spirit world. He said more and more people would be having experiences which would validate the existence of spirit. He said that communication with the Other Side would become a normal, acceptable way of every day life and that what he refers to as the “illusion of separation” would become thinner—in other words, the veil between worlds would become more transparent. And in that transparency one would recognize his or her connection not only to God or the Source, but to each other as spiritual beings.
I believe that is happening. I have spoken with many people who have had mystical experiences. One cannot help but notice the upsurge in the hunger for spiritual connection and even spiritual material. And that is often being filled by the publication of many successful books, movies, and television shows on spiritual subjects, everything from angels, miracles, near-death experiences, mediumship and the body/mind/soul connection.
Dr. James Martin Peebles, in his terrestrial life, was a clergyman, doctor, author, and a leading Spiritualist who traveled all around the United States and the world on lecture tours, and was himself a medium. He was surrounded all of his life by what he referred to as his “band of angels,” a group of spirit entities on the Other Side that he was often in communication with.
As I wrote in my book, Three Principles of Angelic Wisdom, “The mighty hand of James Martin Peebles penned his fast-held beliefs and his indignation with the idea that spirit communication should cease because some church mind said it should be so. He wrote, "Spiritual beings are daily and nightly descending to communicate with, and minister to, their mortal brothers," an axiom he still holds [today as a spirit guide].
“He also had insight into the ever-present search for spiritual understanding when he wrote, ‘Humanity is pleading, yearning for knowledge. Inquirers are still asking, 'If a man dies shall he live again? And if he live why may we not know it?' And the search for knowledge goes on.”
And in my own search, last night I attended a healing/prayer circle at a nearby Spiritualist Church. The medium who was leading the small circle connected with my Dad. I knew almost as soon as she began giving his physical description it was Daddy. Two things she said about him, actually three, told me for sure it was him. I wasn’t really expecting him but then again I should have known he would be there as I had called on him and my late husband, Don three weeks ago when my mother was in the hospital with a mild heart attack. My sister told me she was in extreme pain and the morphine was not touching it after four hours or more, and her breathing had become very labored. I asked Daddy and Don to go to her and help her with her pain. Forty-five minutes later I received a call from my sister, who was with her, and she told me Mama was resting comfortably and peacefully.
Daddy’s been gone thirty years. My mother is 90 years old. I told Mama today about Daddy’s visit, and also told her about her night at the hospital, and she had no memory of being in that much pain, and she was happy to know Daddy was around. I was happy, too, but not surprised. He’s always been close by. And so is Don.
What the heck, we are all spirits, if we only remember that! Here or there on the Other Side, it matters not.
