Don's First Memory of 

Spirit Connection

“In 1938 I was twelve years old and living with my foster parents on a farm in northern Ohio. It was a desolate area so far back 'Tobacco Road' that cars couldn't get there unless they were pulled through the mud by workhorses. Our biggest dream was to have an electric light bulb in the kitchen but we knew it wasn't gonna happen anytime soon. An indoor bathroom wasn't even in the realm of possibilities. But we'd almost saved enough money to have a telephone installed.

“On a cold January night I was in bed on the second floor of the farm house. Besides having no electricity, the only heat was produced by an iron potbelly stove in the kitchen and not much warmth ever managed to drift all the way upstairs to my straw tick bed where I buried myself under a pile of patchwork quilts. The windows were so drafty you could feel the icy winter air blowing into the house along with flurries of snow.

“At some point in the middle of this night, my dead brother Cecil appeared in a bright flash of light at the foot of my bed. He was wearing a marching band uniform and stood in a circle of white light accompanied by an old gray-haired man wearing a suit, and a teenage Indian girl holding roses. All three were of solid form but at the same time I could see right through them. The white misty light they brought flowed around them like a soft glowing cloud in the middle of my dingy bedroom.

“Of course, at that time, I didn't know the guy in the band uniform was my dead brother. He came to me again twenty-some years later to explain a few things. It was also later when I learned that the man in the suit was my spirit guide doctor of philosophy, Dr. Woods, and the Indian girl was my Indian spirit messenger guide, Red Rose.

“But for a twelve year old farm boy trying to sleep on an cold January night, these three visitors caused me quite a fright. My screams brought my foster father, George, upstairs in a hurry to find out the cause of this commotion. And to my shock, he walked right through the misty physical forms without realizing they existed. 

“A little while later, my trio of spirit visitors appeared again; the guy in the band uniform lowered his baton and pointed it straight at me...and I screamed again. This time George was less enthusiastic about climbing the cold staircase and again told me I was dreaming and to shut up and go back to sleep.

“My three visitors tried again later that same night. It was colder than ever. I was distraught. George was NOT amused. He swung his lantern in a wide arc as he stomped around my room to prove to me that there were no strangers standing in my room in the middle of the night. As he angrily pounded down the staircase, I pulled the covers over my head and said out loud, ‘I don't know who y'all are or WHAT you are, but you're causing me too much of a problem. DON'T come back.’

“They didn't come back for quite a few years, but when they did, they changed my life forever. Surprisingly enough, their visit on that January night wasn't my first experience of spiritual phenomenon. From the age of five, I had been aware of a feeling in the middle of the night where my body seemed to lighten and pull up and away from the bed. I always thought it was a dream; but several times I had the sensation of physically being pulled through the air, out of the house, soaring into the night sky and through the cosmos toward a bright star. It was a dizzying, bizarre sensation that I equated with death. But I always woke up later with a start, out of breath, and so exhausted under the weight of blankets that I couldn't even muster the strength to get up. This happened most nights, after midnight, and I come to identify it as the exhausted sleep of an overworked farm boy.

“But when my dead brother, Cecil, came to me in my adulthood and explained the visitation of the three spirits, he also told me that I had been going through nightly teachings since the age of five on the Star Planet and the planet of Uranus, the most electrically charged planet of the solar system. Bizarre as it sounded, the information kinda felt right to me but at the same time I thought it probably best to not tell anybody else. Some people already thought I was out of my mind.”


Tenets of Spiritualism

Channeled From "Red Rose"


"You're all sitting here in this class as 'one.' Yeah, you're separate and I can look at you separately, but I also see you as one. Because you're all connected to THE ONE. You're separate as far as atoms that make up your entity here, but the reason I say 'one' is because there's not a one of you here who will go back to the Godhead until you ALL go. This is why you reach with your right hand and pull your fellow man with the left. This is where you are one within the oneness. You're connected to the Father. You always have been, that's the spirit area.

“Soul is your covering. It is the personal essence of you that surrounds the spark within you that is perfect. The part of you that came from the Father. That is 'spirit' and spirit is always connected – you're part of him. He is abundance. So are you. Don't lack yourself by thought, because everything he made on this Earth plane is for you. There is a catch to it – that's the 'appointed hour.' But it's there, it's all yours. So if you happen to not receive it in this lifetime, you can in the next lifetime in the physical, or you can also receive it when you cross out of here to spirit. Because you're the same person and you continue to be. Same identity – just a breath away.

“So if you're sittin' here tonight in turmoil, and I know most of you are, or you're wanting a change, always remember – nothing comes to you until the appointed hour, until soul's ready. This is why your body is divided into half. The left side of you is physical and the right side of you is spirit. And this is why nothing can come to you on this plane 'til the thought goes first. And the thought goes to the right, creates the vibration and the vibration creates the cause, whatever cause you put out by your own thought; full circle, around through spirit, to you. Left side, form side, materialized.

“So everything you touch here is a thought form – that's all you are. Man says you're a human being, but you're really not. The only thing you are is soul manifested in matter. Matter being the physical existence you identify as this life. So what you're doing at this appointed hour on this Earth plane – and you're IN it not ON it – is to express yourself through this physical. But you have the other four bodies with you, so you're not just sitting here with one. No man sits here with only one body. That's why there is no death. You have spirit mind body, etheric body, causal body, astral and the physical. The physical body being the lowest, the densest, to operate through this physical Earthly experience. And when the time comes, you drop the physical body, and you walk through the door to the other side of the veil. That's why there is no death.

“You have three exits out of here, out of this physical. The solar plexus, the heart area, and the crown chakra. The three stands in the trinity. The solar plexus is the lowest vibration, and the crown chakra is the highest, it is pure light. Some beings leaving through the crown chakra don't even lose consciousness as they rise [with no delay] from the physical to spirit world in the pure form of light.

“So as you cross out of here, the exit you take depends on what evolvement you are. You cannot look at your fellow man and determine what path he's on, because you don't know. This is where you DON’T judge. You don't have time to judge your fellow man, but you might have time to help him. It's no different there than here. So for all of you who's read the Bible – I've never read it but I can tell you what's in it – don't it tell you 'As a man thinketh, so he is. As a man thinketh, so he creates'?

“So you create your own environment. There's nothing over there that you haven't got here. Because what you're doing here on this Earth plane is a playback. There is nothing new. It may be new to you, but it's not new. You look in the mirror, you see a reflection – that's what you're doing on the Earth plane. I'm taping this class now, if somebody takes the tape and plays it back, it's a playback. That's what you're doing here. As a man thinketh, so he is. Check it out yourself. Think happy, see if you aren't happy. Think depressed, see where you're at. Who created it? You did, nobody else did."
