let me set the scene. My mother was busy washing the lunch dishes at
the farm up in Bethlehem, New Hampshire. Her mother, Netta, had died
a couple of years earlier. Mother had on a pair of stretch slacks, and
suddenly, the elastic around the heel of one shoe, which was holding
the leg of her pants down, broke. She thought to herself, Oh darn,
now Im going to have to drive down to Littleton and get a new
When she finished washing the dishes, she sat down to read a magazine
and rest for a while. But it was a little chilly, so she thought maybe
Netta had a shawl in the barn. She found it in Nettas old trunk.
Then, when she shook it, an elastic fell out. She said to herself, Netta,
are you trying to tell me something?
Back in the house, she started to read again, but shed seen all
of the magazines, so she decided to do something she had never done
beforego back out to the barn and pick a book at random from the
couple of bookcases of old books that had been stored there when F.
E., her father-in-law, had died. As far as I know, no one had ever bothered
to look through the books, so it was a fairly random selection. They
were in a dark corner of an old cow stall.
My mother picked a book with an unmarked black binding and brought it
back to the house to read. Yep, it was this book, and it sure answered
her question. Youre going to be amazed and delighted by May Sewalls
story, and youll understand why Ive put this on my list
of recommended books in my Secret Guide to Wisdom. And youll see
why Richard Hussey has gone to all the trouble to reprint it.
No, our spirits do not go away when we die. Loved ones are with us when
we need help. When were concerned over something, we seem to send
out some kind of beacon. If we allow ourselves to be sensitive to it,
well find that we get the help we need.
Scientists have a very serious problem. They are so deeply involved
with atoms and galaxies that they are almost impervious to spiritual
phenomena. They cant get funding to research anything but physical
things and, preferably,areas that might result in some profit.
If you have a problem dealing with things like past lives, telepathy,
reincarnation, the spirit world, ghosts, clairvoyance, precognition,
remote viewing, serendipity, near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences,
and psychokinesis, or just dont believe in them, I have some very
unsettling news for you.
Take precognition, for instance . . . do you honestly believe that its
impossible to predict the future? Fortune-telling? Lordy!
The fact is that precognition has been proven scientifically as has
psychokinesis (the ability of the mind to affect matter, i.e., move
objects, bend metal, etc.). Proven beyond any shadow of a scientific
doubt. Proven over and over. Get a copy of Dean Radins The Conscious
Universe and see for yourself. He cites a recent study where people
were asked if they believed in psychic phenomena. Sixty-eight percent
of the general public said yes, 56 percent of the professors said yes,
30 percent of the American Association for the Advancement of Science
and 6 percent of the members of the National Academy of Sciences said
yes. How come? Scientists dont waste their time reading
about something they know is baloney. Having had many personal experiences
with telepathy, I was happy to see what I already knew was a fact was
now supported by unimpeachable scientific evidence.
You are going to enjoy this book, and youre going to be getting
copies for friends who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Our
language doesnt have words to describe what we call the next
world. Were so deeply involved with time being linear that
its almost impossible for us to grasp time as just being another
dimension so that our spirits are living in the past, present,
and in the future. Perhaps it is our own spirits that help us in times
of trouble and that we see as angels or spirit guides. We try and describe
it as another Neither Dead Nor Sleeping 13 place, or a
higher vibration. Weve been able to communicate now and
then via psychics, Ouija boards, automatic writing, and even with tape
recorders, but it hasnt been reliable.
Once youve read this book, youll see whyeven though
it was decades out of printI included it in my guide to books
you really should read (Secret Guide to Wisdom).
