I reveal the next book from my Private Bookcase 'Travellers in Eternity' by Geraldine Cummins 1948
TRAVELLERS IN ETERNITY
BEING SOME DESCRIPTIONS OF LIFE AFTER DEATH WITH EVIDENCE, FROM SCRIPTS
PYSCHIC PRESS LTD LONDON
'This book consists of a series of personal communications received over a period of four years or so through the mediumship of Miss Geraldine Cummins. They purport to come from my late sister-in-law, "Hilda," and are mostly in the form of letters.'
E.B.GIBBES. ( PREFACE )
Before the first chapter, there is a 'PROLOGUE' communicated by "Hilda" who tells of her immediate experiences after she died and found herself to be 'delighted' as she was welcomed by members of her family after many years of separation.
The book consists of very detailed accounts of the 'afterlife' as experienced by Hilda and her family. The communications are through what is known as 'automatic writing'; where a medium receives the thoughts of another entity or spirit, and writes them down almost 'automatically'.
A good example of automatic writing, the type of mediumship that was prevalent at the time. There are many references to the events of the time period from 1935 to 1948.
It is an account of an 'ordinary' family in the afterlife, and what happens to those 'newbly passed over. 'Hilda' states that she wants,'what I have to say to be understood by almost everybody. So clever and learned people won't believe any of it. I don't know the meaning of the long words scholars,professors and philosophers use. I shan't, therefore, use them.'
The language seems dated, but it is of the time.
This book was given to me, or rather, bequeathed to me, by a dear friend.
