Harriet Beecher Stowe and her Vision






 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."

Psychic Medium John Edward, Interview




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 believe he is the best psychic medium we have. His website is www.johnedward.net

Enjoy.

Taylor Caldwell and her Writing




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 they're spirits."
Taylor Caldwell's 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.
