It is My Turn to Try Telepathy

As I write this, I realized that I must have visited our local library a lot during high school. It was conveniently located right next door to school. I found a book that included information on how to do telepathy. Well, I had to know more since I read about it in Pebble in the Sky. (Remember, there is no instant information from the internet to be seen or heard of yet.)

After studying the book, I forced my younger siblings to participate in telepathy drawing experiments. I wanted to see if they could draw what I had drawn whilst they were in another room. We took turns like any good siblings would. I would try and draw what they had drawn without looking or talking to them too.

When the one who was drawing via telepathy was done, they called “Time!” And, we would run to see and compare our drawings. Mostly we were way off, but amazingly, we got a few incredibly close. The one picture I remember matching was of a large flower. Excitedly, we ran down to tell everyone. They did not really grasp the importance of this breakthrough (or maybe it was disbelief). But, that did not quell us from doing more experiments. I am sure my parents were glad we were playing nice and keeping out of trouble. It was hard to keep six kids quiet and happy.

Isaac Asimov and telepathy

I am back at our local library again visiting. I think I am there to look up information for some high school project.

(Back in the 1980’s, computers were very new. And, believe it or not, the internet was unheard of then. How we managed, I will never know. I could go on, but I will share one tidbit to give you some perspective – as a senior in high school, my physics class once waited 45 minutes for the computers to merely start up. Happily, this was just in time for the bell to ring. We all had to leave to go to our next class and rarely got the opportunity again.)

Perusing the shelves of the library, I found the paperback book Pebble in the Sky by Isaac Asimov. That looked like more fun than schoolwork.

It was a great book. Real science meshed into an interesting science fiction book by a real scientist. I think I may have read it twice before I had to return it to the library. With one wrong step on the sidewalk, a man travels through time into the future. Towards the end of the book, he becomes very telepathic. So much so, that he could control someone else’s speech, if I remember correctly. It was so interesting to me. Can you really do that? Maybe the unused part of our brain is used for telepathy? I don’t know. I had to find out.

Children spirits watching over me

I digress back a few years to when I was quite young… maybe around 4 or 5. I am sitting in my bedroom playing and notice that there are two small children spirits sitting in my room. They are having a very animated conversation. I cannot hear the words, but I can see their mouths moving and their arms and hands gesturing. My first thought was that they are ghosts. I never was afraid, it actually seemed normal. And then I thought, maybe they are my guardian angels. (That is pretty neat.) I wondered what they were talking about; it seemed like quite the discussion.

Have you ever seen the Tom and Jerry cartoon where Tom, the cat, had a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other shoulder acting as his conscience? Well, I thought they were discussing how to help me do the right thing. My two little personal angels are here, just for me. I saw them a lot over the next few years, but unfortunately as I got older, I saw them less and less.

Now, I wonder, were those two the spirits of my two children now? Were they waiting for the right time to be born? I may never know.

Past lives found at the library

A popular show on television called “That’s Incredible” inspired me to find more information on hard to believe subjects at our local library. I could not find anything on my usual first floor – children’s literature – part of the library. I gingerly ventured to the “adult” section. I felt very grown up all of a sudden just walking up to their area on the second floor.

I was excited when I came across a book that had all kinds of short chapters on interesting incredible stories. The one that stands out in my mind is this… A hypnotherapist discovered that if they hypnotized a person and asked them to go back 80 years before their death; they were nearly always thrown into the midst of a previous lifetime.

The law of attraction brought me to this book, for I found it not long after passing by a girl I instantly knew I had known from a past life. I was intrigued. Is there more than just this life?
