Mathew Hutton’s review of Summerland,

Leo Bonomo brings you “Summerland” given to him by spirit and put into words by Leo. This book presents various teachings in a “Story form”, something that may prove very interesting… but what is the book actually about? Leo puts it better himself with:”SUMMERLAND is a most unusual book. It is written by spirit, those whom we may call Guardian Angels, and has been written specifically as a NOVEL. This is the very first time this has been done.

It has been written as a Novel for a special purpose. So that this simple story of life, the change (Death) and our eternal existence may be told. Its aim is to express the fact that there is more to us than some of us would like to acknowledge. But it is something that more and more of us are beginning to believe in and understand. Man has an inherent knowledge that something else exists, A God or Creator whichever name we give it”

The way the novel is presented for me, makes “Summerland” a highly interesting read. As the story goes on, we are introduced to important aspects of Leo’s life through the use of personal pictures, but he also gives us highly informed teachings that we may apply to our own lives:

One of the greatest gifts you can ever give is the release of the fear of death (The Change) with its release comes a wonderful feeling of the enjoyment of this life. Strange you may think?
Not at all, when that fear has gone and you know that a wonderful “after life” is there – I put that in quotation marks because the reality is that this existence is just for the blink of an eye in eternity, and what we go to IS the Reality therefore what we are experiencing, now, is just a “dream” to experience.

“Summerland” is one of the most interesting and extraordinarily thought-provoking reads it has been my pleasure to examine. The Novel way in which intricate concepts are presented makes them so much easier and entertaining to follow. This is a definite must-read and may leave you with a heightened sense and understanding of yourself you never thought possible before.

And a five star rating on Amazon:

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple and inspiring book, 3 April 2014
By
Jenny – Healer (Wales) – See all my reviews
This review is from: Summerland Leo Bonomo (Paperback)
Leo kindly let me have a copy of this book for review and I’m delighted he did. It is a simple story containing truths about the afterlife, some of which have been given to us elsewhere but not in such an easily accessible way.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we were courageous and enlightened enough to make this a story that was read to primary school children? It is one that can be accepted as just that – a story – no different to the fantasy tales that are always so popular with children. But read and explained by teachers in a sensitive way to allow children to make up their own minds, it would be far better than offering the dogma offered by religion and help little ones perhaps to have some wisps of the memory of their real home in Spirit.

I found it uplifting and inspiring – and also, in places, very familiar as I’m sure others will too. Alex is a sympathetic, ‘boy-next-door’-type character admitting to many of the fears and insecurities we all have and learning that love can overcome fear, something we can all get to grips with here on the Earth plane if we choose to do so.

Underlying the story, the atmosphere in which we live on Earth pervades the events described in the book showing us how difficult it is to focus on love rather than fear. A good, short, informative and enjoyable read.

 

The Gagging law – shouldn’t it have been won already? Earlier landmark Case win is ignored by Cameron and all who voted for this law. British Government attacks the fundamental rights of all religions Hindu, Islamist, Catholic, Buddhist, or any other religion that we practice!

This is from my blog from January 15th 2013.

It is so relevant to this other attack on our freedom of freewill (The Gagging Law) to follow our beliefs whether we are Hindu, Islamist, Catholic, Buddhist, or any other religion that we practice, or crystal healing, acupuncture, sell dream catchers, religious candles or other types of books (does this include Bibles?) or practice witchcraft. All those who have an interest in or benefit from things like meditation are being affected by this law. It has to stop, and now. See my link to earlier article.

It is a Landmark case for the freedom of religious beliefs. It uses Articles 9 – 14 of the European Convention on Human rights which prohibits religious discrimination and allows “freedom of thought, conscience and religion.”

From January 15th 2013.

Shami Chakrabarti, director of human rights group Liberty, said: “Today’s judgement is an excellent result for equal treatment, religious freedom and common sense.

It is clear that the rights of all peoples and of all denominations, cultures and religions are affected by the gagging law. Once again the government has trashed our rights in pushing through this law which affects every single person in the UK because if you follow a religion or have a cultural background that uses any alternative methods, whatever they may be, or indeed like myself who I consider to be spiritual but not a spiritualist, even those who practice no religion are affected.

We need to make clear to the government that to go behind our backs because we would not put up with this, and they could not win in a “clean fight” is not the way to go.

Today a landmark case has been ruled on. Shami Chakrabarti, director of human rights group Liberty, said: “Today’s judgment is an excellent result for equal treatment, religious freedom and common sense.”

I feel that we should strike now at the heart of the problem as its current but underlines the problems spiritualism has faced at the hands of the government, religious bodies and a more lack lustre effort lately, sceptics.

I feel that cases should be brought against all when problems arise and spiritualism is attacked, belittled and sidelined and this would of course involve those who have bias during the making of media programmes.

Far too long have sceptics been allowed unfair advantage in this matter and while they are now less and less effective, they still have the advantage of media bias. In attacking the religious beliefs of spiritualists and their fervent belief, nay knowledge, of the afterlife no one seems to make the link between the spiritualist religion and other religions, why?

Why is it apparently totally acceptable and encouraged to vilify, laugh and degrade these beliefs but those attacks are not seen as a global attack on all religions? After all, all of us believe in a life after death don’t we?

Why does the preaching of (for example) Catholicism preaching it’s total belief in “Heaven” and the afterlife differ from the views of “Summerland” and the afterlife?

All religions agree on the basics that there is life after death, why is it that spiritualism above all is single out? Especially when it has the great advantage of a huge bank of evidential proof? Proof that has been available in England for approximately 135 years.

Why has this discrimination been allowed where all can express their religious views except spiritualism where it is blatantly attacked? Is it because it can be proven to have evidence which, whether you are religious or not, underlines the fact that it supports all religions by stating the fact that there is a basis for their beliefs? Is it a fact that it is “Ok to believe” as long as you don’t know for sure?

Why have we allowed this to continue? I feel that with the rapid change in vibration we should take this advantage of this ruling which has of course been in evidence for many years and use the thing!

It is very interesting that “Lawyers for the Government, which contested the claim, argued her rights were only protected in private.” Doesn’t that tell you something? Why has the government stepped in? What has that to do with an employment case? With a religious case?

Sceptics are on the back foot and should be kept there.

At the ECHR, Miss Eweida argued BA’s action contravened articles nine and 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights which prohibit religious discrimination and allow “freedom of thought, conscience and religion”.

Lawyers for the Government, which contested the claim, argued her rights were only protected in private.

But judges today ruled there had been a violation of article nine (freedom of religion), by five votes to two.

”The court therefore concludes that, in these circumstances where there is no evidence of any real encroachment on the interests of others, the domestic authorities failed sufficiently to protect the first applicant’s right to manifest her religion.“

In view of this conclusion, it decided not to examine Ms Eweida’s complaint under article 14.

Shami Chakrabarti, director of human rights group Liberty, said: “Today’s judgement is an excellent result for equal treatment, religious freedom and common sense.

Please lobby your MP, write to Angela Eagle Shadow leader of the House of Commons, (http://action.labour.org.uk/page/s/the-gagging-law—your-views?source=2014_02_10_38degrees&subsource=labour_email&utm_medium=email&utm_source=labourUK&utm_campaign=2014_02_10_38degrees) write to 38 degrees, and to the gentleman that made us all aware of this problem, Jaime Tanna mail@change.org please do mention to Jaime where you saw this post.

The book was first published on a very short run in 2010 of those who read it (25) 4 – 5 said it had kick-started their development. Two of those wrote in and their experiences are below. What is below is taken directly from the book being published on the 25th November 2013. go to www.leo-bonomo.com/buy my book to buy.

Geoffrey Keyte, internationally known author of the Mystical Crystal and other books, pioneer of Crystal Healing in the UK said of “SUMMERLAND”.

“It was a wonderful book; I couldn’t put it down, it had to be read in one go!

This is the kind of book that has to be published, it should be read”

WHAT ELSE HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT THIS BOOK

“The childlike simplicity of the most profound things you will ever want to know”

“Something Magical in this Simple Story”

“The easiest book you will ever read simple truths & complex issues easily explained”

“Beautifully explained, simply put, as always when Spirit speaks”

“No ego in this childlike explanation of everything you wanted to know about what happens when you die & the interaction between our worlds & why we are really here”

“You can feel the hand of spirit that wrote this”

“It has changed my life”

“Read this & feel close to God”

“You cannot help but feel drawn to the source”

“As always Spirit explains beautifully the sometimes difficult areas of Karma & what the real states of things are”

“Now you will understand, now you can be joyful”

“It’s great to know there is Justice. Why has the truth been banned for so long?”

“If you have been touched by tragic circumstances, read this. I know it will help”

Emails from those who read the recently published book (2010).

On a short run first print in October 2010 which was unsatisfactory, approximately 25 books were sold. Of that number 4 – 5 people reported that it had “Kick started” their spiritual development. It was nothing I had ever noticed though I’m sure that spirit intended it. Should this happen to you, I would be pleased to hear about it – Leo. You should also read my other book “Training for mediumship – using the new energies.”

From Lynn “Good morning Leo, I just had to email you this morning and tell you about something that happened to me last night.

I went to bed and read some of your book – to be exact it was from page 51 to 83. When I put the book down it took me awhile to get to sleep as I had a lot of very vivid faces appear (like a slideshow). This happens quite often and I love it! Anyway I had this dream…it was very REAL. I was in Rarotonga (but not the Raro as I know it) and I was meant to be somewhere at 7pm. I looked at my watch and it was 6.58pm and realised I had to go to the bathroom. As I was on my way to this ‘bathroom’ I looked to my left and I recognised a lady having dinner. I thought to myself ‘gee she looks familiar’ and then my Dad appeared. There were large groups of people sitting around dining tables. I remember the floor I was walking on was like an outside wooden patio (planks of wood) and the tables were in a circle with something in the middle of this circle. My Dad was with Mum but ‘not with her’ but they appeared in the same picture. I started crying with happiness as it was just so amazing for them to be in Raro. The feeling I had when I saw my Dad was indescribable…it was just so real. He looked the same, he smelt the same and he talked the same. It was just incredible. Quite indescribable the feeling I had. The longing to see him again was intense. I walked up to Mum and gave her a cuddle and then Dad came and stood beside me and I gave him a big cuddle and kiss. I could actually feel the tears from my face rub onto his and he said (laughing) “what’s all this about”. I then woke up still crying and extremely upset. This was the 1st dream I have ever had of my Dad since he passed away 3 years ago. He passed away August 2007. 3 yrs, 3 months and yesterdays date was the 21st. A few 3′s in there!

I needed to share this with you because I strongly believe that your book has a lot to do with me communicating with Dad last night. I don’t know why but every time I think of this I go back to your book. I still feel very emotional about it today and just want that feeling of seeing Dad to come back. I want to explain what that feeling was but I can’t put it into words…just feelings that I have never experienced before.
It sounds rather hollow trying to verbally explain it. Your book has opened up something in me. When I read it I feel strangely familiar with what is said but it seems to be ‘filling in the gaps’ and ‘answering questions’ also.

Apologies for the long email but I desperately needed to share this with you. I would love to hear what you see into all of this.

Thank you so much

xx Lynn

The reply is private and not printed.

Oh Leo, you have bought me to tears again…tears of understanding, acceptance and much love. Yes, yes, yes you can certainly reprint my email. I feel humbled you have asked. Do not take out anything that refers to me as like you, I want to share my experience and if it can change just 1 persons life it certainly is worth it (my spelling needs correcting though!!!). Gee Leo I just don’t know how to put my upmost thank you’s to you in words. I’m speechless at what to say and at what you have given me……
xx Lynn”

And this from Louise

“I wanted to tell you how amazing your book is, and totally undersold. I found some of it a bit hard to understand, but could not put it down. It gave me a picture to the voices I hear, helpful and unhelpful and to how my father might be living in spirit. Dave is about to start it tonight and I am going to buy a few more copies for people I think should read it.”

Leo is happy to announce… he is now taking pre orders for his book.

I am very pleased to say my book is just about to be released and I am taking pre orders now. The Details are, price is £8.99 on special offer P & P is for the first 50 copies free, after that P & P is £1.50 for the UK. To buy please go to:- Buy My Books

Light, always, Leo.

The Banning of esoteric sites

UK Prime Minister David Cameron: Stop the unnecessary censorship of “esoteric” websites and web forums!

Are you Mr Cameron now going to stop all esoteric connections? Does this mean Homoeopathy, acupuncture, and all religious connections? Does this mean you are going to shut down “Herbalist shops” are you going to have words then with the Queens own Dr a homoeopath? Are you going to severe connections too Mr Cameron for the Queen too and Prince Charles who believe in this?

Are you going to publicly mock and ban those like Princess Diana and others of the royal family who know that life after death is true and has been provable in this country for 135 years, and tell them they cannot do as they wish? Where are the democratic rights of the people in all this? The esoteric also includes all faiths, Mr Cameron so tell me are you going to advise the Jewish faith (Kabala, the Jewish mystical faith) are you going to ban the Muslim beliefs in reincarnation Mr Cameron?

Are you also going to be attacking all other faiths that are engaged with and connected too “esoteric” websites? Why are you going to stop people from pursuing their livelihoods Mr Cameron, taking away their life’s work? You are a catholic so I have heard, are you going to attack the greatly held faith that the Catholic Church perform exorcism Mr Cameron? I wait to hear your urgent reply on these points.

 

Leo Bonomo.

Do join the rage against the machine and fight for your rights on Avaaz!

This is the update – This is what is really going on! read and be amzaed at how our liberties are being curtailed…. There seems to be someone working with the dark side who is trying to stop the light of the world shining bright…

UK Prime Minister David Cameron: Stop the unnecessary censorship of “esoteric” websites and web forums!

    1. Jaime Tanna
    2. Petition byJaime Tanna

      London, United Kingdom

Please read this and sign the petition against unnecessary “blanket” web filters that look set to block esoteric websites and web forums here in the UK, according to information obtained by the Open Rights Group.

THE UK IS ABOUT TO BE CENSORED BEYOND WHAT IS BEING SPOKEN ABOUT OPENLY IN THE PRESS. YOU CAN HELP STOP THIS.

The Prime Minister recently announced the move to introduce legislation that will force ISPs to create default filters when people sign up for internet services. This is being touted as a move to stop pornographic and extremist material from getting through to end users, including vulnerable children.

Yet, what is extremely worrying, and not yet widely known, is that the Prime Minister’s internet filters will be about more than just hardcore pornography.

Open Rights Group, which campaigns for digital freedoms, has had the opportunity to speak to some of the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that will be constructing Cameron’s content filters, discovering that a host of other categories will be on the block list, including “esoteric material” and “web forums”.

This should ring alarm bells for most of us! How can “esoteric material” and “web forums” be grouped with pornography and extremist sites?

These top-level filters will be most likely be linked to a list of keywords - made by the government, of course – and any websites that have any of these keywords will be blocked/banned.

According to Open Rights Group, this list will be created behind closed doors with NO appeal mechanism.

Websites that promote “esoteric practices” whether directly or indirectly, have already been blocked on pay-as-you-go Orange phones.

Users, including myself, have had access denied to alternative belief/spirituality websites whilst using wifi hotspots in public places.

Who will determine what the word “esoteric” means? This is the first question to ask ourselves.

Will websites that mention “spiritual healing” and “reiki” be blocked by default? Will websites that have “pagan” overtones – those which use words like “summer solstice” or “tarot” or “wiccan” – be blocked?

Would the category of eating “raw foods” (there is a big “raw foods” health movement in the USA, for example) be classed as cult-like or “esoteric” material, either now or in the future, and blocked?

These are valid concerns that should not be casually brushed aside. It is painfully obvious that the word “esoteric” is a broad catch-all term/category that is ripe for misuse by our government.

The second question to ask ourselves is why is the word “esoteric” such a problem?

Angela Pritchard, author and researcher into the universal nature of spirituality and consciousness, and co-author of two books on ancient sacred mysteries, says that, “‘Esoteric material’ which implies all manner of spiritual knowledge and practice, has been lumped in with the worst of human behaviour in this filter—forming one of 9 categories, which includes pornography, violence, and suicide related websites.” 

Whilst Angela agrees with the former Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre boss Jim Gamble, who told BBC Radio that it was important to ‘get to the root cause’ of illegal pornography, she points out that “it is important to get to the root cause of why ‘esoteric material’ became part of this filter, who was responsible for adding it, what their religious or non-religious affiliations are, and why it has not been addressed publicly by David Cameron? This appears to have been done as a very shady back-door deal indeed between the UK government and large ISP companies.”

And even if you don’t care much for esoteric, spiritually-based websites, wouldn’t you be enormously frustrated if a genuine, helpful online forum that you wanted to visit was blocked, especially if that forum had key advice that could help save a life? Many web forums give key information on sexual health matters, abuse, addiction and so forth.

What if you unchecked the box to opt out of filtering defaults and still couldn’t get through to a legitimate site you wanted to visit? Would you be bothered to even follow up with your ISP, especially if you were held in a rather long phone queue? How frustrating!

As a business owner in East Dulwich, South East London, I had a taste of this draconian filtering mechanism two years ago. I went to my local Caffe Nero to have a coffee and catch up on some business administration.

Together with my wife, we run a holistic business which also mentions “Spiritual Healing” amongst other key services such as Reiki, Reflexology, Yoga and Indian Head Massage. I was stunned to find that I could not access my own website as it was blocked. The message on the screen told me it was classified under “Alternative Spirituality/Belief“, and access was denied through their web filtering system called “Blue Coat“.

I was frustrated, not only because I couldn’t access my own website, but because others were also being blocked from visiting a website which did not harm anyone. I eventually managed to resolve the issue but it took time and energy to do so.

Christos, from Greece, had a similar experience five years ago when he went with some friends to MacDonald’s in Camberwell, London in 2008. He says the following:

“We had our laptops with us. When we tried to visit one of the websites that at that time was offering free online courses…. we received the message ”alternative spirituality” and we weren’t able to access it. We were puzzled at the time and surprised. I had just arrived in London and such an attitude did not seem one of a developed country at all.”

Personally, I see nothing wrong with seeking to empower others through spirituality, and the ability to respect and honour all people everywhere. Do you?

Mindfulness and spirituality are big buzz words right now, and surely fall into the category of “estoteric”.

Wall Street Journal say that top companies are employing spirituality in their vision, so why does Cameron have a problem with it?

“Other companies in the mainstream using Mindfulness include Apple, AstraZeneca, Comcast, Deutsche Bank, Google, Heinz, Hughes, McKinsey, Nortel Networks, Proctor & Gamble, Raytheon, Texas Instruments, Unilever, and Yahoo. They cannot all be wrong, surely?” Wall Street Journal

We can all understand why the government, and parents all over the world, would want to block content that degrades both men and women, and causes hatred in any way – websites such as pornographic websites, or zealous religious bigotry, but to block content that seeks to uplift and inspire others, what kind of message is that giving? That does not make sense to me.

Public figure websites such as the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, and Neale Donald Walsch would almost certainly fall into this category of “esoteric” and “alternative spirituality/belief.” The British Society of Dowsers and The London School of Psychic Studies would probably fall into the category of esoteric, and so would many other smaller, well-meaning websites.

I do not want to live in a world where website material that is inspiring and uplifting is banned, whether intentionally, or as the result of passing laws that make access impossible.

I also do not wish to see “esoteric material” or “alternative belief/spirituality” lumped in with pornography and extreme hate. That is a false and most disturbing association, and must be rectified immediately.

Many uninformed people will start to view “esotericism” and “alternative belief/spirituality” as material that is taboo, and will certainly wish to avoid the stigma of being associated with it.

Dara from Sydney in Australia says, “I think the thing that I find the most disturbing though, is looking down the road to the long-term implications. If this legislation passes in the UK, and then other parts of the world, then that means the power exists for any government, or many of them, to completely shut down a chunk of humanity’s access to spiritual material online. And if the power exists, then someday, someone is likely going to use it, to its full extent. That’s why it’s being put in place now, hidden amidst the other issues. The leap from people being completely banned from sharing, viewing, and publishing esoteric material online, to people being banned from sharing and practicing alternative spirituality in real life is not very big. It could happen so easily once the precedent is set.”

This issue of default filtering is especially important for us to consider here in the UK, but it really will affect many other people who don’t live here.

What if a person travels to the UK for holiday or business, and then can’t access websites that they normally have access to, just because David Cameron and his government say so?

The Open Rights Group says that this matter could be easily avoided by simply having an ‘active choice’ as the ISPs originally suggested with no preset defaults, forcing customers to specify whether they want filters, and what filters exactly.

Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, has repeatedly stated his opposition to the current plans by the UK government to impose “opt-in” web censorship, and he plans to continue advocating against these laws.

Whether “opt-in” or “opt-out” internet censorship happens or not, is up to us.

Whatever happens next, it is my belief, and I hope it is yours too, that “esoteric material” should not be grouped with “pornography” and “extremist” material. Useful “web forums” should also not be blocked, in my opinion.

Please get involved, and help spread the word that this is an important matter, at a crucial juncture in humanity’s history.

Let’s stand together with one unanmious voice for our right to access content that is helpful and informative. We cannot have this hugely important issue brushed under the carpet under such a pretext.

Please sign, and share with everyone you know.

Prime Minister David Cameron, we are asking you to stop the unnecessary censorship of helpful, genuine, well-meaning “esoteric” websites and web forums, amongst others, so that you do not impinge on the rights of law abiding citizens to free access of information, and to conduct their affairs.

We also ask for clear, transparent communication on this matter, and a promise that ensures that genuine websites and associated businesses will not be harmed by a myopic viewpoint on what is “acceptable content”.

Who wants to be dictated to by a Nanny State? I don’t.

I am a natural born Clairvoyant Medium, from a very early age I was aware of spirit around me, I came from a Housing Estate in Surrey and my family were working class, who originated from the East End of London. Spirit has stayed with me throughout my life. I accepted hardships in life as a learning process in life and to have empathy for those clients who come to me for readings.

I do also have 2 groups that I guide, to understand the connection between them and spirit and help them develop their gifts.

I am a Clairvoyant with the ability to see, Clairaudience to hear and Clairsentience to feel and sense in many cases I am able to give evidence of how they passed over. I am available for private consultations and work from either the client’s home or my own. I am also available for spiritual advice. My site: http://theclairvoyantmedium.com/

Spirit Interference, what it is and how to deal with it.

I thought you might like to look at a site that is definitely one to know about.

 It’s called Spirit Rescue and Clearance and it is what it says on the tin! Apart from the obvious, it also talks about bogus guides and such things. That is a must if your are trying to develop outside of a proper circle. That is not a route I would recommend in any way at all.

 It’s not just that I recommend my own circle if you can get to East London, but there are many dangers for those who dabble, Dabble being the operative word. I would never recommend playing with this.

Dangers of Ouija and dabbling   Do not Dabble!

This (Thirty Years amongst the dead) is a world renowned book by Dr. Carl A. Wickland (1861-1945)  — A member of the Chicago Medical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and director of the National Psychological Institute of Los Angeles, Wickland specialized in cases of schizophrenia, paranoia, depression, addiction, manic-depression, criminal behaviour and phobias of all kinds.  His wife, Anna Wickland, was a trance medium.

Spirit obsession is a fact – a perversion of a natural law – and is amply demonstrable. This has been proven hundreds of times by causing the supposed insanity or aberration to be temporarily transferred from the victim to a psychic sensitive who is trained for the purpose, and by this method ascertain the cause of the psychosis to be an ignorant or mischievous spirit, whose identity may frequently be verified.

 I write today again about the dangers of dabbling with instruments like the Ouija board and refer you to that article elsewhere on this site.

 The reason I write now is to show you a depiction of what can happen. It is sent to me as the person wanted advice after reading the original article and you can see that there are real challenges for those who are curious of any age. Please read it and take note; I do not feel this person has been harmed but they have had a shock and it exemplifies what can happen… sometimes so quickly…

 Here it is:

 Leo Bonomo,

Thank you for taking the time to at least read through this. I do not now if you can give me any sound advice, but I feel as if I must try. As it is, I was browsing around online and I stumbled across your letter of warning. It shook something within me, and I felt unusually compelled to reach out to you for some words of wisdom. Let me first explain why I am writing to begin with. A long time ago, about seven years or so, I was, perhaps, in my seventh year of school, I was snooping in my older sister’s room as younger sisters are prone to do. It was midday, my father was in the living room on his computer, and no one else was home. I found inside her wardrobe a Ouija board. What I had thought was a silly, plastic looking game that she hid from my father. She had asked him for one at some point and he said no, that they were dangerous, but my mother bought it when she begged. I knew I wasn’t supposed to know she had it, let alone touch it, but I just wanted to see it for a moment. I opened the box and reached in to take out the piece you place your hands over. As soon as my fingertips touched it, I hadn’t even gotten a hold of it, the light bulb in the room crackled and went out.

I don’t know if I will be able to describe this well enough, but as soon as the bulb went out, I felt…raw, I think is the best word, inside of my head. At the time I could think of nothing other than how frightened I was. I immediately withdrew and hid it back in the wardrobe. I left the room but couldn’t keep the tears out of my eyes, I was so overwhelmed and scared, and there was this strange feeling inside of my head. Within moments my father saw me and asked what had happened. At his questioning I broke down and told him that the light bulb had gone out and it scared me, leaving out the part about the board as I didn’t want to get in trouble. He went in and looked at it and was curious because he had just put a new one in. He replaced it and saw that I was still nervous and jumpy and pried some more. I told him it had gone out when I touched the board, but nothing else. He was livid and took the board and locked it in his room, and then he told me everything would be alright. I thought it would be too.      

I never forgot about the incident, but for a while I pushed it to the back of my mind and thought on it no longer. But soon I began to notice strange things. Nothing very overt in a visual sense, but to me the sensations and feelings were as obvious as the sun rising. When I would go certain places, I would get strange feelings, but never good feelings. One place in particular was an apartment in a building my grandparents owned. There were three apartments, and I had been in all of them, two downstairs, and one above. One that was located in the middle of the house on the bottom felt…awful. As soon as I stepped in the door I felt heavy. When I told my nanny about it she asked what I meant, but the only thing I could say was the entire apartment felt dead, as if it were dying and decaying beneath the paint, but no one else could see it. I thought it was the apartment, so I refused to go in there. I swore the only time I would, would be if my grandfather collapsed while doing work in there.

 To read further… and understand how you can protect yourself….

 The old saying is very useful here A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE IS A DANGEROUS THING.

 Personally, I believe that most of the mental health problems in the world are due to being open to negative entities. Interference as I prefer to call it rather than possession (although that is still a good word as it describes how the entity feels about you and uses you) is rife to very many degrees.

As I have said before some of these entities are not, and never have been human. Yes…. kind of chilling that huh? Perhaps you are wondering where we get our ideas of demons etc from? Teaching an awareness of this is the thing to do… Proper teaching that is….

 If the knowledge was open for all to understand then it can be guarded against. The was an institution many years ago called the Lyceum, originally in the Strand in London.

 The Lyceum was in fact connected to spiritualism and was a school teaching all subjects including that. There were experiments in education where pupils were taught the benefits of meditation etc and it had a marked effect on calming down those who took part. Obviously the government realised that however beneficial it appeared to be, encouraging people to explore the spiritual side of life may lead to them discovering the full truth, so in true tradition, the Lyceum experiment was abandoned no doubt to the great relief of government, religions, sceptics, and scientists who regards this as dangerous to their beliefs and grip on power.

 Therefore, with the abandonment of the idea we placed ourselves back many decades. The continuous suppression of knowledge is degrading not only to our ideas of freedom – pardon me if I laugh, but also to our human rights. I am not a spiritualist, but I am a spiritual person. Spiritualism is a religion however; it is not protected like any other. Just try mocking, Islam, Muslims, Judaism, Catholicism and see what you get. Yet, it seems it is ok for sceptics and scientists, and other religions to mock what they really do not understand.

 If you take all the major religions, they are all similar on the most important aspects, which is just what you would expect when the initial information has come from Spirit. However, the problems occur when man realises that it in itself posses power then it is rewritten by man with his goals in mind, not Spirits. This is why there are conflicts in this world.

 More have died in the name of religion “peace and love” than in any world wars, or other conflicts. Why is this? Because man cannot agree, ego plays it’s part and we want to be different and claim that it runs through us.

 Another great site with plenty to say on this and with scientific knowledge at its base, is http://www.cfpf.org.uk/articles/background/scientificproof/scientificproof1.html

 Do go visit it you will not be disappointed and you can see that a lot of the world thinks like you do.

 Much light, spiritual love to you all.

These are excerpts from the book:

“A Decade after the death of Dr Wickland in 1945 orthodox psychiatry Lags a half a century behind Dr Wickland in the knowledge and curing of insanity.” From the gateway of understanding.

First published in Los Angeles, California 1934, “Read not to condemn but to weigh and consider”.

 

Dr. Thomas J. Hudson, author of “The Law of Psychic Phenomena,”
wrote: “The man who denies the phenomena of spiritualism today is not
entitled to be called a skeptic, he is simply ignorant.”

 

“In our times no one denies the real existence of spiritualistic facts,
except a few who live with their feet on the earth and their brains in
the moon,” wrote G. G. Franco, S. J., in “Civilta Cattolica.”
“Spiritistic phenomena are external facts which fall within the range
of the senses and can easily be observed by all, and when such facts
are attested by so many well informed and credible witnesses, it is
useless, as well as foolish and ridiculous, to fight against proved evidence.
The facts remain assured, even for reasonable men.”

 

Dr  Carl Wickland “The change called “death,”-the word is a misnomer-universally regarded
with gloomy fear, occurs so naturally and simply that the greater number,
after passing out of the physical are not aware that the transition has been
made, and having no knowledge of a spiritual life they are totally
unconscious of having passed into another state of being.”

 

Death does not make a saint of a sinner, nor a sage of a fool. The
mentality is the same as before and individuals carry with them their old
desires, habits, dogmas, faulty teachings, indifference or disbelief in a future
life. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Prov. 23:7.

Assuming spirit forms which are the result of their thought life on earth,
millions remain for a time in the earth sphere, and often in the environment
of their earth lives, still held by their habits or interests. “Where your
treasure is there will your heart be also. Matt. 6:21.

 

Many are in a state of heavy sleep, others are lost or confused; troubled
minds may be haunted by fear of the strange darkness, those conscience
stricken suffer in anguish or remorse for their, earth conduct; some, impelled
by selfish or evil inclinations, seek an outlet for their tendencies, remaining in
this condition until these destructive desires are outgrown, when the

4

soul cries out for understanding and light, and progressed spirits are able to
reach them and aid them.

Lacking physical bodies through which to carry out earthly propensities
many discarnated intelligences are attracted to the magnetic light which
emanates from mortals, and, consciously or unconsciously, attach themselves
to these magnetic auras, finding an avenue of expression through influencing,
obsessing or possessing human beings. Such obtruding spirits influence
susceptible sensitives with their thoughts, impart their own emotions to
them, weaken their will power and often control their actions, producing great
distress, mental confusion and suffering.

These earthbound spirits are the supposed “devils” of all ages; “devils” of
human origin, by-products of human selfishness, false teachings and
ignorance, thrust blindly into a spirit existence and held there in a bondage of
ignorance.

The influence of these discarnated entities is the cause of
many of the inexplicable and obscure events of earth life and of a
large part of the world’s misery. Purity of life and motive, or
high intellectuality , do not necessarily offer protection from
obsession; recognition and knowledge of these problems are the
only safeguards.

 

The physical conditions permitting this impingement are varied; such
encroachment is often due to a natural and predisposed susceptibility, a
depleted nervous system, or sudden shock. Physical derangements are
conducive to obsession, for when the vital forces are lowered less resistance
is offered and intruding spirits are allowed easy access, although often neither
mortal nor spirit is conscious of the presence of the other.

This encroachment alters the characteristics of the sensitive, resulting in a
seemingly changed personality, sometimes simulating multiple or dissociated
personalities, and frequently causes apparent insanity, varying in degree from
a simple mental aberration to, and including, all types of dementia, hysteria,
epilepsy, melancholia, shell shock, kleptomania, idiocy, religious and suicidal
mania, as well as amnesia, psychic invalidism, dipsomania, immorality,
functional bestiality, atrocities, and other forms of criminality.

Humanity is surrounded by the thought influence of millions of
discarnate beings, who have not yet arrived at a full realization of life’s higher
purposes. A recognition of this fact accounts for a great portion of unbidden
thoughts, emotions, strange forebodings, gloomy moods, irritabilities,
unreasonable

5

impulses, irrational outbursts of temper, uncontrollable infatuations and
countless other mental vagaries.

The records of spirit obsession and possession extend from remotest
antiquity to modern times. Dr. Tyler, the noted English Anthropologist, in
his “Primitive Culture,” says: “It is not too much to assert that the doctrine
of demoniacal possession is kept up, substantially the same theory to
account for substantially the same facts, by half the human race, who thus
stand as consistent representatives of their forefathers back in the primitive
antiquity.”

In Muller’s “Urreligionen” we find: “The general belief of the barbaric
world today is that such attacks as epilepsy, hysteria, delirium, idiocy and
madness are caused by some demon gaining control of the body.”

Homer referred repeatedly to demons and said: “A sick man pining away
is one upon whom an evil spirit has gazed.” Plato held that demons obsessed
mortals. Socrates speaks directly of demons influencing the possessed
(insane). Plutarch wrote: “Certain tyrannical demons require for their
enjoyment some soul still incarnate; being unable to satisfy their passions in
any other way, incite to sedition, lust, wars of conquest, and thus get what
they lust for.” Josephus says: “Demons are the spirits of wicked men.”

 

So common was the belief in spirits and spirit obsession in the time of
the apostles that the ability to cast out evil spirits was considered one of the
most important signs of genuine discipleship, and it must be admitted that a
considerable portion of the work accredited to Jesus was the casting out of
demons.

A few quotations from the New Testament will suffice. “Jesus gave his
twelve disciples power against unclean spirits, to cast them out.” Matt. 10:1.
“‘Jesus preached . . . and cast out devils.” Mark 1:39. “A certain mad which
had devils long time . . . Jesus had commanded the unclean spirit to come out
of the man … He that was possessed of the devils was healed.” Luke 8:27,
29, 36. “Vexed with unclean spirits.” Luke 6:18. “The evil spirits went out of
them.” Acts 19:12.

“Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit …
And he asked his father: How long is it ago since this

6

came unto him? And he said, Of a child … Jesus rebuked the foul spirit,
saying unto him, Thou deaf and dumb spirit, I charge thee, come out of him,
and enter no more into him. And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came
out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.” Mark 9:17,
21, 25-27. (Similar occurrences are not at all uncommon in psycho-
pathological research.)

 

Tertullian with authority challenged the heathery to a
trial of superiority in the matter of casting out demons. Minucius Felix, a
Roman advocate and apologist, wrote in “Octavius”: “There are some
insincere and vagrant spirits, degraded from their heavenly vigor . . . who
cease not, now that they are ruined themselves, to ruin others.”

Dr. Godfrey Raupert, of London, who several years ago was especially
delegated by Pope Pius X to lecture to Catholic audiences in America on
Spiritualism, said in substance: “It is no longer possible to put the subject
of psychic phenomena aside. The scientific men all over the world have
recognized spiritism as a definite and real power, and to shelve it is a
dangerous policy. Consequently the Pope has asked me to tell Catholics the
attitude to take toward the subject … The Church admits the reality of these
spiritistic phenomena and their external intelligences, in fact, it has always
admitted their reality. The problem at present is to discover the nature of the
intelligence. We are now on the borderland of new discoveries which may
revolutionize the world. It is not the time yet for an explanation of all the
phenomena. We must suspend our judgment until the subject is better
known. The study of spiritism is a new one and therefore dangerous . . . A
partial knowledge of the subject may cause grave dangers.” (Resulting in
obsession or possession.)

“There is no doubt about the fact of diabolical obsessions in the olden
time. That the Church (Catholic) recognizes the possibilities is evidenced by
the rules prepared for exorcising,” is

7

the quoted statement of Monsignor Lavelle, Rector of St. Patrick’s Cathedral,
New York.

 

Julian Hawthorne wrote, in one of the leading newspapers: “Thousands
of evil-minded and evil-acting men and women die every day. What becomes
of their souls, or spirits? They want to get back here . . . the increasing
boldness and frequency with which they take advantage of their
opportunities is illustrated in many ways. . . Two acts of defense are open to
us. We may stop the source of supply of these undesirable visitors and we
may close the doors.”

 

Dr. Axel Gustafson’, who publicly acclaimed his views regarding the fact
of spirit obsession, in quoting cases which had come to his attention, said:
“The spirits of the revengeful have power after death to enter into and
possess the living under certain conditions.”

Prof. Herbert L. Stetson, of Kalamazoo College, Michigan, stated, in a
lecture at the University of Chicago: “Demon obsession is no myth; illness is
often due to demoniacal possession.

Belief in demons is widespread.”

“I often see the spirits who cause insanity,” is the statement of Dr. E. N.
Webster, of the mental section of the American Medical Association. “At
times I even hear their voices. Insane persons who are spoken of as
hopelessly insane are frequently lost under the overwhelming control of a
spirit or crowd of spirits. We frequently find by post-mortem examination
that no physical disorder exists in the brain or nervous system of such persons.”

Prof. William James wrote in “Proceedings S. P. R.”: “That the demon-
theory will have its innings again is to my mind absolutely certain. One has
to be ‘scientific’ indeed, to be blind and ignorant enough to suspect no such
possibility.”

 

Prof. James H. Hyslop, while editor of the Journal of the American
Society for Psychical Research, wrote: “There is growing evidence of the fact
of obsession which lies at the basis of much insanity and can be cured. The
medical world will have to wake up and give attention to this problem or
materia medica will lose control of the subject.”

In one of Prof. Hyslop’s latest books, “Contact with the Other World,”
we find the following: “The existence of evil spirits affecting the living is as
clearly taught in the New Testament, and implied in the Old Testament, as
any doctrine there expounded. . . . The term obsession is employed by
psychic researchers to denote the abnormal influence of spirits on the

8

living….The cures effected have required much time
and patience, the use of psychotherapeutics of an
unusual kind, and the employment of psychics to
get into contact with the obsessing agents and
thus to release the hold which such agents have,
or to educate them to voluntary abandonment of
their persecutions. . . . Every single case of
dissociation and paranoia to which I have applied
cross-reference has yielded to the method and
proved the existence of foreign agencies
complicated with the symptoms of mental or
physical deterioration. It is high time to
prosecute experiments on a large scale in a field
that promises to have as much practical value as
any application of the scalpel and the microscope.”

 

When statistics compiled by the United States Government, as well as
by others, show that the increase in the number of the insane is
proportionately greater than the increase of the general population, it seems
incongruous to credit decayed teeth and diseased tonsils as being primary
causes of mental unbalance at this time when dental and surgical attention is
so general, whereas, the facts are that when dentistry was little known and
practiced, and people went about with all conditions of decayed teeth,
insanity was less prevalent than now.

Without attempting to discredit the Trenton reports, it may be stated
that our experience has shown that in many cases of mental derangement,
although the patient had badly decayed teeth, mental balance was fully
restored by dislodging the obsessing spirit before any attention was given to
the teeth.*

 

Ignorant psychic experimentation may prove injurious when

13

dabbled in by those who neglect the necessary precautions and lack
understanding of the laws which govern the subject, just as ignorance and
disregard of the laws governing everyday life may prove dangerous. The
misuse of a thing is no argument against its use.

 

The alarming results often occurring in connection with Psychical
Research prompted me to follow up a line of investigation to ascertain the
underlying causes thereof, for these also concern the physician.

The serious problem of alienation and mental derangement attending
ignorant psychic experiments was first brought to my attention by the cases
of several persons whose seemingly harmless experiences with automatic
writing and the Ouija Board resulted in such wild insanity that commitment
to asylums was necessitated.

The first of these cases was that of Mrs. Bl., whose attempts at
automatic writing led to mental derangement and altered personality.
Normally she was amiable, pious, quiet and refined but became boisterous
and noisy, romped about and danced, used vile language, and, claiming she
was an actress, insisted upon dressing for the stage, saying that she had to be
at the theatre at a certain time or lose her position. Finally she became so
irresponsible that she was placed in an asylum.

Another case was Mrs. Bn., who, through the practice of automatic
writing, changed from an artist and a lady of refinement to an altogether
different and violent personality. Screaming at the top of her voice she
continually rubbed her temples and exclaimed, “God save me! God save me!”
Rushing into the street she knelt in the mud, praying, and refused food,
declaring that if she should eat before six o’clock P.M. she would go to hell.

Mrs. Sr., who had followed the same practices, also became mentally
deranged and violent, necessitating police interference. Rising in the night she
posed in the window of her millinery

16

shop as Napoleon, whom she presumed herself to be, and after committing
many other irresponsible acts, requiring restraint, was sent to the Detention
Hospital.

In like manner, Mrs. Wr. became obsessed with hallucinations that God
was constantly talking to her and condemning her for wrong acts of which he
accused her; after attempting suicide at the request of this so-called God she
was taken to the asylum.

Many other disastrous results which followed the use of the supposedly
innocent Ouija Board came to my notice and my observations led me into
research in psychic phenomena for a possible explanation of these strange
occurrences.

My wife proved to be an excellent psychic intermediary and was easily
controlled by discarnate intelligences. In answer to her doubts concerning the
right of “disturbing the dead” these intelligences asserted that a grievously
wrong conception existed among mortals regarding the conditions prevailing
after death.

They stated that there is in reality no death, but a natural transition from
the visible to the invisible world, and that advanced spirits are ever striving
to communicate with mortals to enlighten them concerning the higher
possibilities which await the progressive spirit. But death–the freeing of the
spirit from the body–is so simple and natural that a great majority do not, for
a longer or shorter period, realize the change, and owing to a lack of
education concerning the spiritual side of their natures, they continue to
remain in their earthly haunts.

They maintained that many such spirits were attracted to the magnetic
aura of mortals-although the spirit, as well as the mortal, might be
unconscious of the intrusion-and thus, by obsessing or possessing their
victims, they ignorantly or maliciously became the cause of untold mischief,
often producing invalidism, immorality, crime and seeming insanity.

The risk of interference from this source constituted, they said, the
gravest danger to the unwary novice in psychic research, but to be in
ignorance of these facts was an even greater risk, especially in the case of the
susceptible neurotic.

These intelligences also stated that by a system of transfer, that is, by
attracting such obsessing entities from the victim to a psychic intermediary,
the correctness of the hypothesis could be demonstrated and conditions
could be shown as they actually exist. After this transference of psychoses
the victims would be relieved, and the obsessing spirits could then be
reached by

17

the advanced spirits, who would care for them and instruct them regarding
the higher laws of life.
They claimed they had found my wife to be a suitable instrument for
such experimentation and proposed that, if I would cooperate with them by
caring for and instructing these ignorant spirits, as they allowed them to take
temporary but complete possession of my wife’s body, without any injury
to her, they would prove their assertions were correct.

 

In order to carry out their purpose the Guiding Intelligences allowed
many manifestations to take place, often very unexpectedly, and some of
these occurred while I was pursuing my early medical studies.

One day I left home without any intention of immediately beginning my
first dissecting work, therefore my wife’s subconscious mind could not
possibly have taken any part in what transpired later.

The students were required to dissect a lateral half of a body; the first
subject was a man about sixty years of age and that afternoon I began
dissecting on a lower limb.

I returned home at about five o’clock and had scarcely entered the door
when my wife was apparently taken with a sudden illness, and complaining
of feeling strange, staggered as though about to fall. As I placed my hand on
her shoulder she drew herself up and became entranced by a foreign
intelligence who said, with threatening gesture:

“What do you mean by cutting me?”

I answered that I was not aware of cutting any one, but the spirit angrily replied:

“Of course you are! You are cutting on my leg!”

Realizing that the spirit owner of the body on which I had been
operating had followed me home, I began to parley with him, first placing
my wife in a chair.

To this the spirit vigorously objected, saying that I had no business to
touch him. To my answer that I had a right to touch my own wife the entity
retorted:

“Your wife! What are you talking about! I am no woman –I’m a man.”

I explained that he had passed out of his physical body and was
controlling the body of my wife, and that his spirit was here

18

and his body at the college. When he finally seemed to realize this I said:

“Suppose I were now cutting on your body at the college that could not
kill you, since you yourself are here.”

The spirit admitted that this seemed reasonable, and said:

“I guess I must be what they call ‘dead,’ so I won’t have any more use for
my old body. If you can learn anything by cutting on it, go ahead and cut
away.”

Then he added suddenly: “Say, Mister, give me a chew of tobacco.”

I told him that I had none, and then he begged for a pipe, saying:

“I’m dying for a smoke.”

This request was, of course, also refused. (The fact that Mrs. Wickland
has always abhorred the sight of any one chewing tobacco precludes the
possibility of her subconscious mind playing any role in this episode.)

After a more detailed explanation of the fact that he was actually so-
called “dead,” the spirit realized his true condition and left.

But the similarity between the actions of the controlling spirit and the
symptoms of the patient, as well as the relief obtained by the latter through
this removal, indubitably prove the ‘spirit to have been the cause of the
disturbance. In many cases the identity of the spirit has been
unquestionably authenticated.

After this transfer and permanent dislodgment of the obsessing
spirit, the patient gradually recovers, although there may be a
number of spirits requiring removal from the same patient.

It may be asked why advanced intelligences do not take charge of
earthbound spirits and convert them without having them first control a
psychic intermediary. Many of these ignorant spirits cannot be reached by
the intelligent spirits until they come in contact with physical conditions,
when they are compelled to realize their own situation and are then started
on the road to progression.

DURING thirty years of indefatigable research among the “dead” such
startling conditions have been revealed that it seems incredible intelligent
reasoners along other lines of thought could have so long ignored the simple
facts, which can so readily be verified. There is utter impossibility of fraud in
these experiences; foreign languages, totally unknown to Mrs. Wickland, are
spoken, expressions never heard by her are used, while the identity of the
controlling spirits has again and again been verified and corroborations
innumerable have been made.

 

One was a minister, formerly pastor of the Methodist church of which
Mrs. H. W. was a member, who had been killed in a railroad accident nine
years previous, but was still unconscious of the fact; another was her sister-
in-law; there were also three elderly women, family friends for years, a
neighbor boy and the mother-in-law of the patient–all entirely unknown to
Mrs. Wickland.

Mrs. H. W. conversed at length with each one, as they spoke through
Mrs. Wickland, verifying innumerable statements made by the spirits and
assisted in bringing them to a realization of their changed condition, and of
the fact that they had been obsessing her daughter. This patient is today
entirely well and actively occupied with social, musical and family affairs.

 

One summer evening we were called to the home of Mrs. M., a lady of
culture and refinement; she was a musician of high rank and when the social
demands made upon her proved too great she suffered a nervous breakdown.
She had become intractable and for six weeks had been in such a raving
condition that her physicians had been unable to relieve her, and day and
night nurses were in constant attendance.

We found the patient sitting up in her bed, crying  one minute
like a forlorn child, and again screaming in fear: “Matilla!
Matilla!” Then suddenly fighting and struggling, she would talk
a wild gibberish of English and Spanish, (the latter a language
of which she had no knowledge).

Mrs. Wickland immediately gave her psychic diagnosis, saying the case
was unquestionably one of obsession, and this was unexpectedly confirmed
when Mrs. Wickland, who was standing at the foot of the bed, with wraps
on ready to leave, was found to be suddenly entranced. We placed her on a
davenport in the music room, where for two hours I talked in turn with
several spirits who had just been attracted from the patient.

There were three spirits–a girl named Mary, her suitor, an American,
and his Mexican rival, Matilla. Both of the men had vehemently loved the
girl and as fiercely hated each other. In a jealous rage one had killed the girl,
and then in a desperate fight the two rivals had killed each other.

All were unaware of being “dead,” although Mary said, weeping
wretchedly: “I thought they were going to kill each other, but here they are,
still fighting.”

This tragedy of love, hatred and jealousy had not ended with physical
death; the group had unconsciously been drawn into the psychic
atmosphere of the patient, and the violent fighting had continued within her
aura. Since her nervous resistance was exceedingly low at this time, one after
the other had usurped her physical body, with a resulting disturbance that
was unexplainable by her attendants.

With great difficulty the three spirits were convinced that they had lost
their physical bodies, but at last they recognized the truth and were taken
away by our invisible co-workers.

Meanwhile the patient had arisen, and speaking rationally to the
astonished nurse, walked quietly about her room. Presently she said: “I am
going to sleep well tonight,” and returning to bed, fell asleep without the
usual sedatives, and rested quietly throughout the night.

The following day, attended by a nurse, she was brought to our home; we
dismissed the nurse, discarded her medicines, and after an electrical treatment,
the patient had her dinner in the general dining room with the other patients,
and that evening attended a function given in our social hall.

Another spirit was removed from her the next day; this was a little girl
who had been killed in the San Francisco earthquake, and who cried
constantly, saying she was lost in the dark. It is needless to add that she was
comforted and promptly cared for by spirit friends, who had been unable to
reach her while she was enmeshed in the aura of a psychic sensitive.

After some months of treatment, rest and recuperation, the patient
returned to her home and resumed her normal life again.

 

Subconscious Mind and Auto-Suggestion, or Multiple Personalities,
would be untenable, since it is manifestly impossible that Mrs.
Wickland should have a thousand personalities, and since it is so
readily possible to cause transference of psychosis from a
supposedly insane person to Mrs. Wickland, relieving the victim, and
in this way discovering that the disturbance was due to a discarnate
entity, whose identity can often be verified.

Individuals who are clairaudient suffer greatly from the constant
annoyance of hearing the voices of obsessing entities (the “auditory
hallucinations” frequently observed by alienists), and when such a
person is present in a psychic circle where the spirits are dislodged
and transferred to the psychic intermediary, interesting developments
occur.

 

Comments and feedback…..

Due to the huge amount of spam from selfish people trying to earn money and brownie points for various sites I have had to stop comments and feedback as an experiment for now. It pains me to do so but it is so time consuming to filter out the trash from the genuine as the trash far exceeds….

Yes I know we can “de-spam” and yes I know there are various bits of software that can be used but when you are offering a service such as the lines and email readings you are then expected to pay a premium every month/week for doing it.

This I feel is a complete rip off because the web created or allowed the problem to proliferate feeding its self an income and then provides a service to combat the problem is sustains….. If that is not a rip off I don’t know what is! In the end, as always, its the innocent that suffers.

Therefore if you have sensible, without agenda remarks to make you can email me (for now) on notinfavourofspam@virginmedia.com
