Spirit Communication

Very interesting and illuminating presentation of very skilful communication with spirits and evidence of the extent of spirit influence upon humans.

Thirty Years Among the Dead

This exciting book by Dr. Wickland, M.D., is a tremendous resource regarding spirit activity among those who have passed out of human existence. The book is arranged by categories such as Spirits and Crime, Spirits and Suicide, Psychic Invalidism, Orthodoxy, Christian Science, Theosophy, Philosophy, and so forth. You get the complete feeling of the time through the verbatim records of spirits speaking through Dr. Wickland's wife. There is plenty of spiritual insight throughout, and by the time you finish the book, you are well-versed in the essentials of a well-lived life. This book shines light on the dark recesses of spirit activity in the insane and obsessed. It is enough to cause you to reconsider the unfortunate and even those you may know who are not themselves, perhaps classed "mentally ill" by the psychiatric profession or warehoused in mental institutions. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

An Outstanding Book

I read and reread this book several years ago. It gave great insight into the realms of the spirits and their rather very serious impact on those living. The departed spirits communicated through an intermediary, medium, his wife. The stories told touched my heart and enhanced my understanding of the nature and character of the spirits. That provided wealth of information for my book, Secrets of Life, Beyond... I would highly recommend this book not only to healthcare providers but the public at large.

Bringing life to dead people

I read this book 15 years ago, so my memory may be getting dim. But it's about the author's experience treating cases of spirit possession. A typical case is a young man who felt the need to run away and go to sea. It turned out, as the author discovered, that he was being strongly influenced by a dead sailor. He asked the sailor to leave the young man alone, and that was the end of that. Wickland claimed no spiritual powers but used an intermediary (I think it was his wife, who would go into a trance). His method was to interview the spirits hanging around the patient. He would inquire as to how their life had been, and what they are trying to do with the patient. He would then recommend that they leave him alone and go rather with the "Mercy Crew" (a multi-racial group of higher-lever departed spirits who chose to work with the Wicklands). So he did confidently what Joel Haley Osmont (of "I see dead people" fame) did fearfully in "The Sixth Sense". Forgive me if my memory deceives me in a few details. I think I'll order a copy and re-read it.

A must read for all ssychiatrists

Dr. Carl Wickland MD would not have agreed with the conclusions of Dr. Stevens [...]. He specifically stated that all of the memories observed in such cases were actually originating from the discarnate spirit of the deceased, who was attached to the patient. He did not accept the case of the deceased spirit entering into a new incarnation. Of course Dr. Wickland was dealing with the psychosis of much older patients and did not to my knowledge examine any of the type of patients that Dr. Stevens did. Dr. Wickland's work is of great importance to the understanding of Origenes' theory of "The Restoration of All Things." [...] But it only addresses one aspect and that is of the `Lost Souls". Early Christians had prayed regularly for the `Lost Souls', and Dr. Wickland gives us many reasons why we should do so today. When discarnate spirits do not accept the divine order and return to where they belong, they are able to `molest' people with whom they have had some sort of special relationship. What does this have to early Christian teaching? First of all, it gives us a very good lesson in Free Will. As M. C. Steenberg [...] most rightly points out, if all souls were destined to go to heaven, then where does Free Will come in? Dr. Wickland describes in great detail the amount of havoc that these discarnate spirits were allowed to bring to his patients. He also shows how they must choose to stop their activities among humans and accept divine guidance. Secondly, his work gives a hint of the order that exists in the divine spiritual world and gives us an idea as to how many angels are actually around us, active in the restoration process, guiding us during our life and afterwards. The discarnate spirits that Dr. Wickland encountered in his work certainly represented only a small subset of the discarnate spirits. When their body dies, the majority submit to the divine order. To find out about these, we must look to different sources. Shawn Murphy [...]
