Andrew Jackson — conversing with spirits

Start of spiritualism is usually associated with the activities of medium and clairvoyant named Andrew Jackson Davis, a native of the New World. Davis also famous as a healer, putting in a state of ecstasy diagnosis and medication. In a trance, he prophesied nadiktovyval their essays. "Prophet of the new revelation," called him a writer Arthur Conan Doyle.

Boy in fear of a drunken father wept bitterly cold winter on the street. It makes no sense to complain mother helplessly suffering from an alcoholic husband. She could not help his son. Through tears child asked God to intercede for him, and suddenly the angel stretched out in front of him white wings and his ears sounded marvelous voice, "Everything will be fine, baby …"

Over the years, Andrew Davis — one of the founders of Spiritualism, a famous healer and psychic XIX century in different ways told the story of how he was the first sign. Perhaps, then, he does not remember exactly, was in fact a child. And maybe it is different: for someone who can perceive reality through inner vision, does not matter if he heard angelic voices or sees the heavenly messengers in the flesh.


The next great medium was born in a nondescript American family. His father earned his living by shoemaking and weaving skill, propivaya most of the money. Mother kept house and spent long hours in prayer. Biographers say Davis quite remarkable fact of his biography associated with the name Andrew. It so happened that a few days newborn lived nameless: parents were not up to it. When to visit them went friend's father, the conversation topic was raised at the time of passing the U.S. presidential elections.

Guests are invited to call the boy after the Democratic candidate Andrew Jackson — the famous general, the governor of Florida. And then, in thought, he said: "However, the name of this great man will not be more significant than the name of your son when he grows up." Simple working surprisingly well matched the child's future. America's seventh president Andrew Jackson is known and remembered far worse than his namesake, the spiritualist.

Davis grew like a weed. My father drank, on any work not stay long, so the family constantly wandered from place to place. The boy did not even read properly taught — the parents themselves were illiterate, and regularly attend school got in the way travel and work: his childhood was sent to apprentice to a shoemaker and shouldered most of the young son of economic trouble. In his autobiography, "Magic Wand" Andrew has repeatedly mentions the fact that his childhood was poor, the hungry and joyless. However, that's when it first began to be spirits — with instructions, advice and consolation. Their voices sounded heavenly music, which caused the unknown, the beautiful images, filled the soul of a teenager unprecedented enthusiasm. Of course, the boy did not tell anyone about their visions, but they are considerably strengthened his spirit.
In 12 years, the voice that is so often heard Davis gave him a clear indication to move with their parents in town Poukipsi.

Father, by the nature of its "rolling stone", oddly enough, has responded to the request of his son. The family soon moved to a new place of residence, which later brought Andrew Davies new abilities and fame. There he first visited a very clear and specific vision. It happened at the death of the mother. The teenager did not know that was orphaned when he saw a surprising by its brightness and sharpness of the picture: the dirty streets of the February snow suddenly disappeared, the flowers bloom, the birds twittered … With a blue sky poured golden light in the reflections which Davis appeared before a beautiful home and Andrew heard the sweet voice of my mother, who said she now lives there and she is doing well. The vision disappeared, the boy returned home, he learned that his mother is no more, and realized that he saw a new, happier world, where he moved after the death of parent. Being a religious man, Davis felt that the Lord showed him a piece of Paradise.

Opening of "Third Eye"

Adolescence and youth of Andrew Jackson Davis occurred in a time when the United States broke an unprecedented interest in mysticism and hypnosis. The whole troupe toured the United States, showing unprecedented tricks, and introducing the audience in a trance. Naturally, the young man who is constantly seen and heard something inaccessible to others, became interested in the topic. He went on a scientific lecture on hypnosis, but the lack of education prevented lecturer expounded understand the phenomenon. Then Davis attended the show on tour in Poukipsi hypnotists. What was the astonishment of the actor, when he failed to enter the thin, sickly-looking young man in a trance!

On the "defeat" on tour Davis told his good friend William Livingstone, who worked as a tailor, but very fond of everything that is related to hypnosis. Intrigued Livingstone invited the young man to try again, and a new experience was more than successful. Andrew not only fell into a hypnotic state, but declared itself as a potential healer and diagnostician. Being in a trance, he told his friend about the diseases tailor-being of himself and of his wife, and the issued and diagnoses, and treatments!

Both decided not to stop there and continued experiments. In the course of the next trance Davis showed a completely unique things: reading books closed, guessed the names of unfamiliar people predicted the small events that actually took place shortly. Best of all he managed healing sessions. Perhaps this contributed to the children's unrealized dream of becoming a doctor, perhaps that was the mission again, but Davis put on his amazing accuracy of diagnoses and gave detailed instructions for treatment. The most interesting thing is that sometimes these "recipes" are not taken seriously by medical contemporaries, since at the time was not yet recommended drugs and treatments — all of this was to discover and invent much later.


Apparently, regular immersion in a trance helped Andrew Jackson Davis to reveal his gift to the fullest. On the night of March 7, 1844, he made what later became known as "astral travel." In a state of spontaneous polutransa, the medium was transported tens of kilometers away from home — in the Catskill Mountains, where he spent several hours in dialogue with the two great men of the past: the ancient Greek healer and philosopher Galen and the Swedish scientist and spiritualist Emmanuel Swedenborg. As stated by Davis, Galen gave him a magic wand with which you can cure most diseases, and Swedenborg promised support in all scientific endeavors.

This meeting has significantly changed the nature of visions and revelations of Davis. For example, he began to better understand the nature of his gift and try to explain it to others. When asked about how he can "see" the disease, he described his method of diagnosing this: the human body is looking for its transparent, enveloped in a kind of radiance and diseased organs, "shine" dull, less intense, that allows us to understand the nature of the disease and make appropriate recommendations.

No less interesting are to others spiritualist his astral, or, as he is their
called "spiritual journey". The spirit of the Davis entered into a trance state, hovered over the ground, noting that does not usually see eye: mineral deposits, topography, underground rivers and emptiness … Inspired by the new features Andrew preached his first vision in his native town, and then went to traveling around the country.

"Spiritual writers"

Davis opens in a trance truth demanded a certain system of presentation. In this trance is not educated, he was so tongue-tied and could not clearly explain their visions. Livingstone, unfortunately, did not support the idea of writing a "book of revelation", because by the time he left the tailor's craft and fully immersed in a new business based on the grant Andrew. The young man moved to his patron, and introduced them into a trance, was engaged in healing the sick, of course, for a decent reward.

However, the heavenly patronage and helped Davis at this time. He soon became acquainted with Pastor William Fishbou and practicing hypnotist Dr. Lyon, who helped him achieve what they want. For the past 15 months alone introduced him in a trance, and the second shorthand revelation. The result of this titanic work was the monumental tome "The principles of nature: the divine revelation and message to mankind." The book made a huge impression on the scholars of the time. His knowledge in the field of medicine, physics, chemistry, philosophy, linguistics put serious students of the materialist to a standstill. Davis could not have known anything like it, but he knew it!

But the most important works of Andrew Jackson is a 6-volume encyclopedia "Great Harmony", which he nadiktovyval about 11 years. Knowledge and revelation contained in it, were so unusual that the collection survived more than 40 editions in the United States alone.

Communicating with spirits

Being a deeply religious man, Andrew Davis believed in the afterlife and the ability to communicate with the dead. After all, his life had a vision of his dead mother and a "meeting" with the spirits of Galen and Swedenborg. Inspired by the topic, Davis spent a long time at the bedside of the dying and clearly seen at the time of death, the soul separates from the body. He said that the etheric body, separated from the flesh, always meet other souls, misleading him in the afterlife.

In March 1848 Davis heard a voice predrekshy beginning of a new era: that people will see what they could not see before. Andrew understood the meaning of the prophecy later — thanks to the Fox sisters, who were able to "see" the spirit of a murdered man. Subsequently, the two have become well-known American mediums. Indeed, a new era began. Spiritualism made a name for himself, and Davis became one of his main followers. A lot of time he devoted to the study of the life of the soul after death. The result of numerous Ouija was the book "The Philosophy of communication with the spirits."

Davis believed that communication with spirits is useful because it allows to solve the mystery of the future and understand the mysteries of the past. He has repeatedly said that the souls of the dead, with whom he had ever contacted, is a mentor, good advisers, warning against evil and help bring the world of good. However, contemporaries did not hear Davis: very soon seances as hypnosis, turned into a farcical show. Realizing that people are only interested in "miracles" and did not care about underlying philosophy of Spiritualism, Andrew Davis walked away from this trend.


In his two autobiographies Davis wrote that he lived a very exciting life. Of course, it was both good and bad. On the one hand, Andrew never felt alone, surrounded by his followers, admiring spectators, friends who helped to write the book and to carry out sessions. Medium three times to marry, was able to get an education, which he dreamed of since childhood, to conduct medical practice. In his declining years he opened a bookstore and happily selling not only books, but also herbs, which he himself had prescribed the visitors — his gift of a healer remained with him.

The other side of Davis's life is not so optimistic. Repeatedly betrayed him and openly called a fool for what he did not want to exploit the data over power for commercial purposes. Personal wealth and material goods of little interest to Andrew, his thoughts were directed upward, from whence came his priceless gift. All my life I tried to grasp his Davis nature. Researchers who have studied this man as a unique person, came to the unequivocal conclusion: Andrew Andrew in a trance and trance out — two completely different people. So, put into a hypnotic state, Davis hit a professor at New York University, George Bush, later wrote: "I can confirm with full responsibility that he had heard from the mouth of Davis saying in the Hebrew language.

It was a statement of geographical representation of that era, which he in his age could learn in such a short time. He talked about the ancient biblical stories and mythology about the origins and roots of language, the development of civilization of the various peoples of the world … Such a depth of knowledge can not be obtained, even after reading the book all the libraries of the world. The information he presented would require to study the issue in hard all my life. None gifted minds in the world could compare with him in the fullness of knowledge. " However, the output from the trance, Andrew did not have sufficient vocabulary to explain the most simple, obvious things.

The secret of his great gift of Andrew Jackson Davis took with him, left this world January 13, 1910. However, he has left us ample evidence that the ability of the human mind are in the initial stage of learning.

Prophecies Davis
