Talking publicly about experiences which many people have but few are prepared openly to admit, seems to a natural sceptic like me to be a useful exercise in showing respect for both the rational dimensions of life and those ‘other’ dimensions which send the reductionists into a lather of (non-rational!) fury.
In “Wisps from the Dazzling Darkness” I offer my account of thirty years’ experiences of atmospheres, dreams, ghosts, mediumship, mystical experience, poltergeist phenomena, prediction, premonitions, reincarnation and telepathy. I also attempt to provide an explanation for those experiences by setting them in the context of contemporary scientific research which is open to the idea that we may live in a multi-levelled universe which is not only stranger than we suppose, but stranger than we can suppose….

Hi Anne thanks for opening this space – in fact, in an age of dire scepticism and ‘Trollery’, creating a safe space for people to talk about their experiences is essential, when we lack cultural endorsement …. Looking forward to more!

Many thanks to those readers of this post who were kind enough to buy “Wisps from the Dazzling Darkness” this week. Much appreciated.
I couldn’t help but think about this post when I read my friend Jeanie’s account of “meeting” a recently departed friend in a dream. The comments to her post make clear that she’s not alone in her experience — as you so well know.
I’m going to send her a link to your post. I know she’ll be interested. I have my own account of an unusual experience to write about. Once I’ve done that, I’ll take a look at what you’ve said. I’m quite interested, but sometimes it’s better to write first and reflect later!
