Some years ago I gave a number of presentations to audiences on the subject of 'Life Beyond the Grave.' In many instances audience members, after some encouragement, told me - and the audience - of their having been visiting by the their loved ones who had passed away. Some of these were women who had lost their husbands in World War Two and who were visited by their dead husbands before they'd even been notified by the War Office that their men were 'missing in action presumed dead.'
But even more came up to me after my presentation. They'd been too afraid of ridicule to speak up, to tell me the same thing. I would say that it is rare for a person NOT to experience some sort of 'Message from Beyond.' I'd go further, and say that those who do not ensure this by keeping a closed mind on the subject, thus preventing such messages ever reaching them.
My own wife was visited by her mother, that is, she saw her mother appear before her, smiling and happy, a few days after that good lady's death. It made my wife feel wonderful, relieved that her mother could still be alive, albeit in another world.
But the earliest conviction came to me when, as a lad of fourteen, I saw my own dead brother and, was approached, even before I could mention the matter to everyone, by my elder sister, who asked me if I'd seen what she had seen: Her rescentlyj dead brother walking around the house in which he'd died.
To call them 'ghosts' might be incorrect. For ghosts, in some instances, are somewhat different again. Nevertheless, the poet, Milton was right when he said: "Millions of spiritual creatures walk the earth unseen, both when we wake and when we sleep." So take heart, for you, too, are an immortal being.
