DATELINE: My Friend from the Titanic
Author with Richard
Ancient Aliens struck gold again with a recent showing of “The Akashic Record,” the tenth episode of the twelfth season.
In case you missed it, this one raised the issue of a fount of knowledge, from all beings and creatures of the universe, stored like our modern computer cloud, floating out in the shimmering quanta of the universe.
Though Akashic Record has been accessed mostly by mystics, prophets, and artists, using a portion of matter at the back of the brain, Ancient Aliens had its own focus: strictly focused on the predictive element of the cosmic cloud library.
They saw it strictly as a means to give that crystal ball some legitimacy when you do readings of future events.
They only briefly mentioned, in passing, the ability to draw information from the cosmic library about the past. The Akashic Record may be the best way to explain the memories, ideas, and knowledge, of history being mined by artists, poets, and writers.
Some call it channeling. Others dismiss it as meditation from a swami, but a few of us believe strongly that we have often reached a memory of a past life and a past vision to write down on a page for a book.
For years we were always amazed at our ability to see what some historical person saw and put it in one of our fictional—and lately, nonfictional—books.
We have drawn on Billy the Kid, John Wilkes Booth, and even Dr. Francis Tumblety, who claimed he was the Ripper of Whitechapel.
Those books are available on Amazon.
Lately, we discovered that we have been able to reach a spirit of someone who died on the Titanic. Indeed, we only learned about this after we purchased one of the homes he once lived in. His name was Richard and he was on Titanic, as a gift from his father, for graduating from Bowdoin. He perished with his father.
For years in a college classroom where I taught, there was a little bronze plaque commemorating Richard and his father’s heroism in helping others on the Titanic.
So, it came as a shock when a psychic named Nicole told me that the spirit of Richard was following me around for decades, wanting me to write a book about his life. She saw him hanging over my shoulder. It rattled her. I never see him, though he does make noises to communicate with me in recent years.
How could I write a book about a dead person who left no record of his life?
Richard worked in strange ways, coincidentally bringing people to my attention who had personal papers, photos, and knew his descendants. The result was a book called Tales of a Titanic Family. It’s all true, and Richard directed me to find a treasure trove of info on his life.
Now, it seems my discoveries were based on the Akashic Record. I have now written a book on my experiences with Richard at my home. It’s called Ghosts of Mill Circle, mainly because the street he lived on, where I now reside, has many spirits clinging to their old haunt.
The recent show on Ancient Aliens has explained, obliquely, why I have been able to write this true account.
So, forgive me for using this blog for something out of the ordinary, but it now seems connected to everything else in the cosmos.
