A Realpolitik Self-Help Guide cum Spiritual Memoir

Beginning in her early childhood, the world-famous trance medium and grande dame of parapsychology Eileen J. Garrett had numerous encounters with an entity she called the “Noble Stranger.” When she asked his identity one day, this mysterious figure responded, “You may call me Lucifer.”

Call me Lucifer: Dialogues with a Noble Stranger, features Garrett’s writings about her encounters with this Noble Stranger, and reflections on her intellectual “duels with her Devil.”  The book includes extensive verbatim transcripts of Lucifer’s communications with Garrett, together with Lucifer’s Compendium of Guidance.

Though prepared with great care over the course of her life, the book has lain dormant in Garrett’s family archives for decades.  Her granddaughter, Lisette Coly, current President of the Parapsychology Foundation, has now decided that it should be shared with the public as an aid to our spiritual evolution.

The book can be enjoyed on at least three levels: an unflinching psychological self-portrait of a highly cultured, intelligent woman of the last century interrogating her own extraordinary experiences; a long-lost chapter in the history of parapsychology and another piece in the puzzle of Garrett’s mediumship; and perhaps most importantly, a source of thought-provoking wisdom and startling ideas. Whether they originated with Lucifer himself or from somewhere deep in the medium’s subconscious, readers will appreciate these texts for their insight into life’s most pressing spiritual and existential questions.

About the author

Eileen J. Garrett (1893-1970) was an Irish medium and one of the most important figures in parapsychology. Despite her apparent psychic abilities, which were subjected to numerous tests by the most prominent researchers of the era.

Garrett maintained a lifelong healthy skepticism, always questioning the nature and meaning of her own extraordinary experiences. Her dedication to the objective, scientific study of psychical phenomena resulted in her establishing the Parapsychology Foundation, which published many books on the subject as well as the International Journal of Parapsychology, and the popular Tomorrow magazine.

Garrett was also something of a bon vivant, rubbing shoulders with everyone from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to Cecil B. DeMille, Aldous Huxley, Salvador Dalí, Robert Graves, Anaďs Nin, and Carl Jung to name but a few. Garrett herself was a prolific author, writing a number of novels as well as books on psychical research and three autobiographies – including My Life as a Search for the Meaning of Mediumship, forthcoming in a new edition from Afterworlds Press

When did you ever become less by dying? by Stafford Betty – When Samantha was just shy of her fifth birthday, an age when her delight in every manner of living creature was well underway, she noticed a slug on the sidewalk. This was the same slug she noticed just a few hours earlier, slowly crawling down the front steps of her home. Only now it was smashed on the sidewalk. "What happened to it?" she asked. "It looks like it got stepped on, Samantha," said her mom. "But why isn't it moving?" Her mom looked at her husband as if handing off the conversation. He said, "Samantha, it's not moving because it died." Read here
