Thirty Years Among the Dead, first published in 1924, details Swedish-American GP and psychiatrist Carl Wickland’s experiences as a psychical researcher. After moving to California in 1918, Wickland began to turn away from conventional medical psychology and moved toward the belief that psychiatric illnesses were the result of influence by spirits of the dead. He came to believe that a large number of his patients had become possessed by what he called "obsessing spirits", and that low-voltage electric shocks could dislodge them. His wife Anna acted as a medium to guide them to "progress in the spirit world". Spiritualists considered him an authority on "destructive spirits", prompting Wickland to write this book.

It would begin with a rumble of "thunder" followed by a bolt or two of "lightning," shocking them awake. And when they awoke, they would find themselves alert and "alive" inside a woman's body . . . a woman as foreign as the doctor gazing back at them. A doctor who would speak to them about God, earthbound spirits, and the hereafter. The same doctor who would let them know that they were so-called "dead." In his groundbreaking, first book, Thirty Years Among the Dead, psychiatrist Dr. Carl A. Wickland details and documents three decades of psychical research conducted alongside his wife, Anna, from the 1890s through the early 1920s. Considered an authority on the subject of "spirit obsession," Dr. Wickland explores how spirits influence the pathology of mental illness by "obsessing" unsuspecting people who happen to be very sensitive to these unseen influences. First published in 1924, Thirty Years Among the Dead, remains a seminal work in parapsychology. This book is a republication of a standard edition of Thirty Years Among the Dead published in 1924 by the National Psychological Institute, Los Angeles, California.

Handbook To The Afterlife

In Handbook to the Afterlife, two seasoned experts with decades of experience working with channeled material describe the stages that spirits go through, focusing on the details that these accounts have in common. Just as life itself has different stages of growth and development, so most accounts of the afterlife are consistent with the authors’ view that dying and rebirth are also continuous processes. Beginning with the moment of death itself, progressing through different transitional stages, and ending with the return of spirits to the physical plane, authors Pamela Heath and Jon Klimo define the purposes and pitfalls of each stage. They look at the kinds of adjustment problems that occur in each phase, and how spirits can be helped to move forward. Questions of pain and emotional state at the time of death, karma, and reincarnation are sensitively addressed. The book includes practical techniques for opening up communication with those who have passed on to the other side. While of interest to anyone seeking a general overview of the subject, Handbook to the Afterlife is particularly useful for those dealing with spirits who have not moved on, such as ghosts.

People Who Don T Know They Re Dead

In People Who Don't Know They're Dead, Gary Leon Hill tells a family story of how his Uncle Wally and Aunt Ruth, Wally's sister, came to counsel dead spirits who took up residence in bodies that didn?t belong to them. And in the telling, Hill elucidates much of what we know, or think we know, about life, death, consciousness, and the meaning of the universe. When people die by accident, in violence, or maybe they're drunk, stoned, or angry, they get freeze-framed. Even if they die naturally but have no clue what to expect, they might not notice they're dead. It's frustrating to see and not be seen. It's frustrating not to know what you're supposed to do next. It's especially frustrating to be in someone else's body and think it's your own. That's if you're dead. If you're alive and that spirit has attached itself to you, well that's a whole other set of frustrations. Wally Johnston, a behavioral psychologist, first started working with a medium in the 70s to help spirits move on to the next stage. Some years after that, Ruth Johnston, an academic psychiatric nurse, who'd become interested in new consciousness and alternative healing, began working with Wally to clear spirits who weren't moving on. These hitchhikers had attached themselves to the auras of living relatives or strangers in an attempt to hold on to a physical existence they no longer need. Through her pendulum, Ruth obtains permission from the higher self of both hitchhiker and host to work with them. Then Wally speaks with them, gently but firmly, to make sure they know they are no longer welcome to inhabit the bodies and wreak havoc on the lives of the living. Hill has woven this fascinating story with the history and theory of what happens at death, with particular emphasis on the last 40 years and the work of such groundbreaking thinkers as Elmer Green, Raymond Moody, William James, Aldous Huxley, Edith Fiore, Martha Rogers, Mark Macy, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Bruce Lipton, and a host of others, whose work helps inform our idea of what it is to live and to die. As it turns out, our best defense against hitchhikers is to live consciously. And our best chance of doing that is by paying attention and staying open to possibilities.

The fascinating history of Spiritualism is coaxed into the material realm as the object of this perceptive and sweeping overview by that legendary author of the occult and supernatural, Raymond Buckland. Containing more than 500 entries and 100 illustrations, The Spirit Book is the comprehensive encyclopedia to Spiritualism and its related subjects. Plus it provides full biographies of every prominent person connected to the field. Drawing on decades of research, writing, and transcendence, Buckland describes sundry methods of channeling, events associated with Spiritualism, including séances and exorcism, organizations focused on clairvoyance, and a colorful host of mortals—famous and infamous—who delved into Spiritualism. Nostradamus, Helena Blavatsky, and Edgar Cayce receive their due, as well as Joan of Arc, William Blake, Susan B. Anthony, Winston Churchill, Arthur Conan Doyle, Mahatma Gandhi, Harry Houdini, and Mae West (look up and see her sometime). It explores Qabbalah, Sibyls, Fairies, Poltergeists; phenomena such as intuition and karma; objects useful in the attempt to cross the divide, including tarot cards, flower reading, and runes; and related practices such as Shamanism, transfiguration, meditation, and mesmerism.

Alien abductions, satanic kidnappings, the channeling of spirits, the recall of past lives and other similar bizarre experiences are reported almost daily in the media. Is there a rational explanation for these events? According to Robert A. Baker, such irregular or supernatural experiences are manifestations of hidden memories, a phenomenon in which experiences that originally make little conscious impression are filed away in the brain and later are suddenly remembered in an altered form. In Hidden Memories, the most recent scientific evidence on memory is used to dispel many supernatural beliefs and to show how the boundaries of human behavior are often misperceived by therapists, especially those who adhere to fringe beliefs. He shows how delusions and illusions affect behavior and discusses the role hypnosis, imagination, and suggestion play in the creation of other worldly experiences. Finally, Baker looks at the media's role in aiding and abetting paranormal belief in addition to promoting the growth of superstitions and popular myths.
