Talking With The Dead

An Introduction to Spirit Communication

by Raymond Buckland

The general public tends to think of séances and mediumship as fraudulent. Some few people may have vague doubts and think – perhaps even hope – that there are some “real” mediums that actually can connect and communicate with spirits of the deceased, but the majority of people have doubts. Yet just because it is easy to duplicate something in a fraudulent manner, does not mean that the real thing doesn’t exist. There has been a long history of people fooled by con artists pretending to be mediums, and bilking bereaved widows and widowers out of large sums of money, on the pretext of putting them in touch with their departed loved ones. Yet there have also been a large number of fraudulent insurance salesmen, bankers, politicians, television evangelical preachers, investment consultants, and more. There is life after death and it is possible to make contact with the Spirit World. It is also possible for many people – if not most – to themselves become mediums through whom such contact may be made. This book offers information on how to do so.
An introduction on how to communicate with deceased loved ones; methods that can be used by the ordinary person without special training. Although the history of Spiritualism revealed many frauds in its early days, there are today countless excellent mediums who can and have produced evidence showing the validity of contact. A number of mediums have appeared on television in weekly series, demonstrating immediate contact with the dead. John Edward, Lisa Williams, John Holland, James Van Praagh, Theresa Caputo, and others have shown millions of viewers that there is a continuation of life after that transition that we term "death". And it is not necessary to go to a professional medium or to take long and expensive training courses to make this contact. We all have the ability within us. Anyone who truly wishes to do so, can make contact with those no longer on this physical plane. This book shows exactly how to do it, and to do it safely. There is no fear of "possession" or of attracting undesirables. You can experience clairvoyance, psychometry, automatic writing, table tipping, spirit boards, and more.
