Faced with early retirement and desperately needing healing for an injury to my spine, I entered a Spiritualist Church as a total non-believer in 1977. To me the dead were dead and gone - finished - obliterated. In the church a lady on my left received an amazing message from her deceased three-year-old daughter. I found that for her, too, this was her first time in a Spiritualist Church.
After the service I was thrilled to be completely healed of my disability in a ten - minute session, and my wife and I started to attend the church. As my father, mother and brother returned over the following months with characteristic messages, I weakened, and when my dog returned, I finally gave in and admitted that the dead do survive and can communicate - a thrilling moment
Returning to my teaching career, I was able to teach a course on ‘Life After Death’ to the six hundred pupils in the upper school until I retired. It was the most popular subject I ever taught in school and exciting for the pupils and me.
Looking back after 25 years of sitting in circle, and recording spirits speaking through brilliant trance mediums, I can hardly believe the contact made and conversations held with both famous and unknown characters. They included
Winston Churchill, Ramases II, Alfred Russel Wallace, Audrey Hepburn, Dr Raynor Johnson, as well as murderers, burglars, soldiers, airmen, sailors, victims of Hiroshima, Japanese POW camps, the Asian Tsunami, German concentration camps, the two Gulf Wars in Iraq, World Wars I and II: also aristocrats, Vikings, children, drug addicts, suicide bombers, Great Train Robbers, farmers, jockeys, monks, nuns, Salvationists, Muslims and Bishops. All came to tell their story and some to ask for help to leave the lower astral and progress on to the happier realms of the Spirit World – awesome and fulfilling work.
In addition to my own 700+ recordings I have copies of the wonderful ones made by a friend John Turner at the Devon Centre in the 1980’s. Here King George VI, Pundit Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Lord Mountbatten and Florence Nightingale and a host of others, sent 100 Hundred Messages To Mankind to educate us as to the true nature of life after death.
Most visitors to our circle came only once. Some came a few times. Billy, a twelve - year old boy returned fourteen times over three years to describe growing up in the Spirit World. Dr. Johnson, Master of a University College, returned every fortnight for a year to teach us, and his talks were published in the book, ‘In Touch With Raynor Johnson’ in 1993 – quite a thrilling event.
Then, like many others, I have copies of the famous Leslie Flint recordings of spirits speaking with the independent direct voice: Mahatma Gandhi, Archbishop Cosmo Lang, Olga Romanov, Lord Justice Birkett, an African slave, Sir William Crookes, Professor Geley and many others, including John Brown, Queen Victoria’s gillie, who acted as her medium for contacting her deceased husband, Albert. He talked widely and explained the efforts made in the Spirit World to influence the mind of Nitika Krushchev of Russia to avert the Cuban Missile Crisis by withdrawing nuclear missiles from Cuba.
From almost every age and continent, Spiritualism has enabled me to hear, and often talk with, a wonderful range of speakers who tell of their happy and busy lives after the death of the physical body.
What do they teach us? That we are all eternal beings and the quality of our life in spirit will reflect the quality of our life on earth. The love we have given out to others we shall receive, Justice is perfect, and for most people, life is wonderful in the Spirit World.
