I will be away and not writing my book blog for a few weeks. Sorry, but hope that people will still read previous blogs, and maybe find out more about the books that I have shown up to now.
Hello dear friends, just a quick note to apologise for not posting for a while. I will be back to normal mid September ish. Meanwhile I hope that you will have a chance to do some reading. Remember to keep an open mind and follow your gut instinct when on your Spiritual pathway. Never accept anything that does not feel right. 'When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.'

Hi People, Is there anyone there? I wonder if anyone is out there. Be nice if someone would acknowledge.
I thought I would have a change today, because featuring a book each day is somehow not enough. I want to re read them, and then maybe share some thoughts about the contents with you.
That is of course presuming anyone is interested. I realise that the subject is not for everyone - although I find it hard to believe.
Understanding what or who we are as humans, why are we existing? What is this Universe that we live in? What is the point of it all? Is there a reason? Is there a creator? How or why did it all begin? All my life I have been curious about these things. I have craved for answers.
I am in the middle of reading the Autobiography of Eileen Garrett. ( see my earlier post about this book) It has been there in my bookcase for years. Some of the things she talks about concerning her sensitivity, and psychic senses, bear a common thread in my own life. My Dad went through similar experiences in the 1960's as Ms Garrett did decades earlier. Like her, he was born with the ability to 'see' the so called 'dead!' Then later in his life he discovered that he was a natural 'trance medium'. He was sitting at home with a group of family members and friends, when he must have fallen asleep. Or so he thought. Wondering why everyone was staring at him, he was informed that he had been speaking for over an hour. He had a 'control' who had been speaking to the family and giving evidence of life after death. 'Dead' relatives had been speaking to those present, and my Dad had no knowledge of any of it. Thinking that he had just 'nodded off.'
I learned about all these things when I was very young, and it became normal. But later, I began to ask questions. I realised that not everyone knew about things. Yet it had happened. It was a normal part of my family life. Why did others find it so difficult to believe?
Anyway I am just wondering if anyone else out there has had a similar experience?
I will leave the question open, please get in touch.
Have a nice weekend.

EILEEN J.GARETT "PROBABLY THE BEST KNOWN AND RELIABLE PSYCHIC IN THE WORLD." - Life Magazine
The Next Stack of books from my bookcase in the corner....
One of these books will be going into a draw for one blog member to win - so join up now - and share - as soon as ten people have joined I will put the names in a box and choose one to receive a free book.
Now for today's book:
ADVENTURES IN THE SUPERNORMAL
A PERSONAL MEMOIR
This is a paperback, 1968 edition. First published 1949.
PUBLISHED BY PAPERBACK LIBRARY,INC.
"unique, readable, entertaining, sincere, straightforward."
These are the adjectives critics have used to describe Eileen Garrett's Adventures in the Supernormal .
'From her Irish childhood, where her only friends were the two mysterious Children invisible to everyone else,throughout her adult life, Eileen Garrett has possessed the rare, disquieting gift of second sight.
Her struggles to come to terms with her strange faculties of clairvoyance precognition and trance-mediumship form the basis of this unusual autobiography of a woman whose life is devoted to the world of the occult.'
"All this is told simply and swiftly. The result is an entertaining story...on clairvoyance, ghosts, poltergeists, the meaning of death and the color and form of life as it looks to one who sees beyond and through the spectrum." - The New York Times
Introduction by Hugh Lynn Cayce, ( son of Edgar Cayce )
" Eileen Garrett's psychic capabilities unroll like a magic carpet - clairvoyant perception of auras and spirit forms (ghosts); prevision (precognition); retrocognition (perception of past events); experiences with hypnotic trance sessions of unusual duration and depth; spontaneous telepathy, as well as laboratory controlled experiments; psychokinetic manifestations (movement of objects); and healing in a variety of forms. Indeed, it is the tremendous range of Mrs. Garrett's abilities which almost overwhelms an observer. " Hugh Lynn Cayce

Hello Readers and welcome to my Spiritual book corner. The next book I have for you is One of the writings of JIDDU KRISHNAMURTI....
Published 1959, Victor Gollanz, London.
A detailed biography of Krishnamurti can be found here:
Krishnamurti, 1895-1986, was a writer and speaker of Philosophical and spiritual subjects.utIn this book he expounds on various topics such as Creative Happiness,The Fear of Death,The Purpose of Life, Contentment, Envy and Loneliness, and much more.
He was born in India, and was taken under the wing of theosophist Charles Webster Leadbeater, and Annie Besant of the Theosophical Society in Madras. They believed him to be a vehicle for the next World Teacher. But he eventually left that organisation, and travelled the World as an independant, giving talks to groups and individuals. He claimed no allegiance to any religion, caste, nationality or philosophy.
He died at his home in Ojai, California, in 1986.
This is a book comprised of short discourses on various topics, as the title suggests, about 'Living.' based on notes that the Author made during his travels and teaching. Lots of wisdom and guidance to be found between these pages.
Good Morning book lovers and seekers of truth and wisdom. Today I am showing you :
The Author argues the case against separation of Science and Religion, asking if both should be linked together in the Laws of Nature. 'Is the Supernatural natural, or unnatural?'
A copy of this book can be downloaded for free on Amazon for Kindle.
Not an easy book to read, but a classic in the evolution of the ideas concerning the origins of life, and the reconciliation of Science and Religion.

Through the mists or Leaves From The Autobiography Of A Soul In Paradise -Recorded For The Author By ROBERT JAMES LEES
Hello Readers, here we have another book from the recesses of my old bookcase. This is one that has not seen the light of day for some years. I actually have two copies of this. One which I purchased years ago from somewhere; a second hand bookshop.
This copy was left to me by Violet, a dear friend who died some years ago. It is in a rather poor state, but is signed by Eva Lees, the daughter of Robert J Lees, who calls himself 'the recorder' of the book, rather than the Author.
This is a 1952 reprint of the book, which was first published by Eva Lees 1898, who lived at 'Rodona', 54, Fosse Road South, Leicester, England. It was printed 'In Great Britain By Halsey Brothers & Rist LTD., London, E.C.1
I will continue this post later, but leave this with you for now.
