“Love begins in your heart–and love returns to your
heart. Allow it to flow unrestricted and unencumbered. That is when you will
feel the joy of living.” ~Angelic Guide, Elizabeth, channeled by Linda

Many of us are still searching for answers about life: Who are
we? Why are we here? What happens when we leave here? Will we see our loved
ones again? And for some, the questions may be broader such as: Have I been here
before? Will I return at some future point? Why did I come back?
In about 1850, Spiritualism reached a high interest and continued for a number
of years, not only in America,
but world-wide. The poets, philosophers, artists, politicians of the time,
along with the ordinary man and woman, in surprising numbers came to accept
spirit communication as a comforting and fulfilling life experience.
Within my new print book,How Thin The Veil! 150 Years of Spiritualism,you will read about the early days of
Spiritualism and how it became a new era that brought with it a profound
understanding of human destiny after death, and of the relationship between
heaven and earth.
Many historical figures considered themselves Spiritualist, some more openly
than others. One of our greatest Presidents, Abraham Lincoln communicated with
spirit on the Other Side through mediums and referred to spirit as “our friends
from the upper country.” It has often been said his writings and speeches were
inspired by spirit, especially his Emancipation Proclamation.
The veil between worlds continues to grow thinner, communication is increasing,
and part of the increase in communication may be a result of fear being
released, and openness prevailing. Curiosity, yes, but probably more than that
when intuition is allowed to have a role in everyday life.
Harriet Beecher Stowe, (1811-1896), American Author, Abolitionist
Supernormal powers do
not always connote formal mediumship or spectacular displays.Harriet Beecher Stowe once remarked that Uncle
Tom's Cabin was "given to her–it passed in vision before her.She had to tell it as it came, and suffered
in so doing."She had also attested
to her belief in spiritual forces.She
wrote, "One of the deepest and most imperative cravings of the human
heart, as it follows its beloved ones beyond the veil, is for some assurance
that they still love and care for us. They have overcome, have risen, are
crowned, glorified; but still they remain to us, our assistants, our
comforters, and in every hour of darkness their voice speaks to us."
~Excerpt from my book, "How Thin the Veil! 150 Years of Spiritualism."
This is a wonderful
interview of psychic medium, John Edward by Fern Ronay.It's a long interview, but very
enjoyable.I just listened to it
again.I believe I have posted previously
on my blog, but that's okay.
I had pulled the Jess Stearn book, The Search for a Soul: Taylor
Caldwell's Psychic Lives, (1973) from my book shelf a bit ago, as I had done a FB
post about author, Taylor Caldwell.In Stearn's
book, I had to smile and appreciate this, especially as a native Californian.In a discussion with Caldwell, he asked her if she wanted to be
hypnotized. She answered, "If anybody can manage it."He said, "If they can’t do it in California, it can't be
done anywhere."She replied,
"And why California,
pray?"With laughter, he said,
"The atmosphere is so electric out there that even the people think
writing intrigues me. I'll always remember a TV interview she did back in the
late 1950s, in which she spoke of not knowing where her ideas came from and
that she felt as if she was doing "automatic" typing, as if a
"Presence" (what she called it) guided her fingers. She often claimed
that she had no idea how the facts within her books came to her. It was
especially evident in her book, Dear and Glorious Physician, Later in a book by
Jess Stearn, she talked of the "Presence," who communicated with her.
She was also known to be psychic. That TV interview, which I watched with my
Dad, has always stuck with me--it fascinated me then, and now. Part of the
reason may be that I've always believed in past lives, and contact with the
other side, and having some psychic ability myself, makes it easier to understand.
