150 Years of Spiritualism

“The veil that clouds your eyes shall be lifted by the hands that wove it.”  ~ Kahlil Gibran

In many ways, it appears that not much has changed in over two hundred years.  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 Linda Pendleton's book, 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.
