This Great Book has just been republished and so you can now get it at a much more reasonable price, than at $100’s of dollars.
In this incredibly important book, you get the opportunity to follow along with the author, Robert McLuhan, as he examines much of the evidence in a number of areas of the paranormal.
Some the paranormal events he looks are Ghosts/hauntings, visits from apparitions, Mediums, seances, OBEs, NDEs, reincarnation, children remembering past lives, remote viewing, Card guessing experiments, the sense of being stared at, Psychic animals and more.
If you, like me, read lots about Near Death Experiences, you could easily come to the conclusion that this is a new modern phenomenon, since the publication of Raymond Moody’s book Life after Life in 1975. In this great anthology “In Times of War: Messages of Wisdom from Soldiers in the Afterlife’ we hear from a number of ordinary soldiers who have experienced or who are in the afterlife and communicate with us that after death on the battle field, they are still very much alive. Stories from one of the earliest near-death experiencers, Er written in 360 BC, through stories from WW I & II and Vietnam.
Jeff O’Driscoll was in the ER when Jeff Olsen was brought in after his car accident. Jeff O’Driscoll had a Near-Life Experience and saw Jeff Olsen’s, recently deceased wife, Tamara’s spirit, following her husband. In this remarkable book Jeff O’Driscoll may have coined the term Near-Life Experience, as he shares with us a number of such events from over his 25 years in the emergency department.
I discovered the eighteenth-century spiritual world explorer Emanuel Swedenborg from reading a booklet Insights into the Afterlife by Nora Spurgin. Online, I found the Swedenborg Foundation, who are a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to help people learn about Emanuel Swedenborg.
From the Swedenborg Foundation websites Where to Start page I decided to read the book A Swedenborg Sampler. (You can download a free PDF or EPUB of the book or purchase a paperback copy from the website).
Insights into the afterlife is a small booklet, but still a great read. Nora had a friend who was dying of cancer, and so spent some time researching information to give to her dying friend to reassure in her few months on earth. Afterwards she then gather this information into 30 Questions on what to expect. In the booklet she referenced Emanuel Swedenborg and Anthony Borgia whom I had not heard of but sound very interesting and I have done a search and found my next avenue of exploration.
I first read Conversations with God Book 1 in 2001.
Returning to work this year, and having a 50 min train trip to and fro, I have taken the opportunity to re-read CWG Books 1 & 2.
The CWG books don’t include much evidence to support the afterlife, but if you believe, then the CWG books are a great beginners resource to understand it all. (A more advanced resource would be the Alice Bailey Books, which I have read, and only somewhat understand.)
