Earthbound Suicide Rescued at a party, and a gang-member earthbound for 70 years. Human and Spiritual Justice
As a medium Helen Greaves said that she had become so used to the visitants from another world as to accept them as naturally as she did the ticket collector on a railway or the shop assistant in a West End store. The two worlds were no longer two worlds to her, but one and the same, an extension only of this present one. So she was not at all surprised to be “aware” of another visitor when she was guest at a lively party one evening.
“Whilst we were all laughing and talking, I felt the presence of some depressed and unhappy soul in our midst. For a time, I pushed the impression away from me. But it persisted. Here was a “lost soul” asking for help. Then I heard myself asking one of the company if she knew a young man who had committed suicide. She admitted she did; he was a relation of her husband. I cannot exactly remember the number of the years she mentioned since the sad event of the man’s self imposed death. But I do recall that the “entity” immediately challenged her on the number. (Afterwards the young lady told me that her husband agreed that the second statement was correct!)
“This young man then gave the circumstances of his death and the events that had led up to them. He went on to say that he had been “earthbound” during these years; that he couldn’t get away from his old home; that existence was dark and dreary where he was, and that he wanted to find his Way. Could they help him? The young woman verified the fact that the home where his aged mother and father still lived was a dismal and unhappy place, and she agreed that as far as she knew, the circumstances of his death were all correctly described. Again he pleaded to be helped to find his Way, and the assembled party offered to do what they could to assist him. The episode then closed; it had cast a slight gloom over us all; but soon the vibration lightened and we went on to other matters.
“The next morning, as I was eating my breakfast, I became “aware” of this same entity. He said that he wanted to ‘express his great thanks for what had been done for him. He was no longer “lost”. He said he had found his Way; that he had been lifted out of his darkness for ever, and could now progress. He had left his old earthly home for ever. Would I tell the kind ladies who had “helped” him to do this?’ After I agreed to relay his message, the communications closed down. But the EXPLANATION is arresting!
“The previous evening, after I had left, three of the women and another neighbour discussed the plight of this poor “spirit”. They are good people who believe in the potency of prayer. For some while they sat in silence praying for this “earthbound spirit”. They asked that God would send His angels to guide and help this poor soul caught, as it were, between heaven and earth. They spoke his name, and prayed earnestly for him. I was not present, and I had not known of their intentions. Yet the “spirit” was able to communicate with me [the next day] and to tell me of the marvelous results of those prayers; and that by their intercession he had been released from his bondage!
“Some weeks later the young man’s relation reminded me of a fact which I had overlooked. She recalled that I had distinctly stated that if the young man could be released from his bondage to the old home, so that he no longer hung about it miserable and unhappy, it would mean release for his old and sad parents. They too would not survive much longer in this “house of bondage”, but would pass on to a fuller life. This prophecy I had completely forgotten. But it happened in just that way Soon after the evening when the women had prayer for the liberation of this poor suicide, and he had gone on a new way, the old father died. The aged mother will probably follow soon. We can only trust that they will find peace and understanding, and be reunited in love and charity with the son who caused them so much sorrow.
“The doctrine of Purgatory seems feasible if we think carefully about it. There must be a “waiting place”, [a limbo] - some temporary halt on our journey, where we can judge ourselves for the actions, good or bad, which we have committed whilst on this earth. None of us leave this world utterly purged of our desires, our selfishness, our errors. Some seem to be cut down in the very midst of their wickedness, and for them the purgatorial halt must be terrible indeed. But the duration of our sojourn there, and the intensity of it must depend upon the life we have lived, and the spiritual progress we have made. To most good men and women the “lower worlds” must be obliterated as they pass along their way. They go to the “place prepared for them”, and their spiritual eyes look ahead to the bright regions. But if we believe that God is Love, then we must believe also that even the apparently depraved creatures are given the chance to
redeem themselves, and progress towards the spiritual worlds.”

Modern states look after justice for the average citizen here on earth, but when there are acts of terrorism, and anarchy breaks out, the regular legal system breaks down, and justice becomes a local or tribal, ethnic or clannish affair. Vengeance is even carried over from generation to generation, and if one family member, for example is murdered by an enemy, a leading member of the victim's family is obligated to take revenge on the enemy's family. So we have this kind of traditonal justice meted out in the Middle East still, in the Balkans, in African countries and in the Far East, especially when society and law and order has fallen apart when an empire loses its sway, and the protection it provided is no longer present. This happened when European empires weakened, and colonies gained independence, and also when the U.S.S.R. and communism lost control and power.
This helps us understand some of the dreadful atrocities happening around the world at the present time. In tribal warfare, massacring one's enemies, raping the women, and plundering and destroying enemy villages is taken for granted. This is a tradition which has carried over from primitive times, thousands of years ago. But with modern weapons provided by the super-powers, this type of warfare becomes devastating.
The same type of justice is meted out in disputes between our city gangs, and when such gang members pass, they often have trouble adjusting to the life in spirit. One such case presented itself recently with a rescue group. Here is the transcript: [Richard R.]
A spirit with a powerful male voice intrudes.
Group members, facilitating in turn: - I wonder if you would like to talk to us?
Spirit: - Rather strange! I was here waiting before. Then the other gentleman poked his nose in, which I thought rather rude.
Group: - So you didn't like being kept waiting?
Spirit: - Do you like being kept waiting?
Group: - It depends. Anyway, we understand your position. Is there any way we can be of help to you?
Spirit: - Well they told me that if I came, you could help, but I am just wondering if you can.
Group: - Well, we've helped a lot of others. In what way do you need help?
Spirit: - First of all, I know that I am not on the earth plane, but where the devil I am, I do not know. I'm not here, I'm not there; I am just that bit in between.
Group: - Sometimes they call it Limbo.
Spirit: - Limbo! That's a dance, is it not?
Group: - I believe it is, as well, but that's another meaning. I'm sure we can help you to get somewhere definite that you will enjoy. If you are prepared to listen to us, we have helped many others. What we would ask you to do, is to think of somebody who is not on the earth, but has passed on, that you would like to see - parent, relation, friend. Who you would like to come and get you?
Spirit: - I may like to see them - the point is, would they like to see me?
Group: - Only time will prove that. Usually they are very willing to come and help, because they are not exactly as they were when they were on earth.
Spirit: - And I can assure you, I am not, because I was not on the - er - good side in the earth conditions.
Group: - We understand - now can you think of somebody who ...
Spirit (interrupting) : - There was one person who very much tried to help me, and he was a policeman - a very kind policeman - I know very well that he has passed, he has been - er - shot. But whether he would want to come and see me, after all the trouble I have given him in the first place? You see the difficulty?
Group: - We've overcome this difficulty many times before, and I think we can do it again. The thing is, do you know his name? Can you visualize him?
Spirit: - I can visualize him. Whether I can remember his name is another thing, because the memory plays tricks on you.
Group: - The name is not important, as long as you can see him in your mind.
ASpirit: - Oh, I can definitely see him - I remember what he looked like and his stripes.
Group: - Well, if you will concentrate your mind, and say 'I want to see him,' we will try as well, and then you watch and see what happens. You may bve surprised. I hope you will be.
Spirit: - We can only try, can we not? By the way, I did not pass within the bars - do you understand? I was on the good side then.
Group: - Imagine you are going to telephone him.
Spirit: - He would be more likely to telphone me, because you know, I used to give him little informations for the police work, and that's why I did not pass within the prison walls - because of the people I used to give him information about.
Group: - You were what is called a snout (grass), were you?
Spirit: - A snout! That is what we used to call a cigarette. I think the proper word is informer, an informer for hand-outs, you understand?
Group: Let's all concentrate. We're going to concentrate - you do the same. We want the sergeant to come. See what happens. Think of him. Concentrate.
Spirit: (He sees the policeman): - It is a long time, Mr. Harry! (To us) As soon as I see him I can remember his name. The only name I knew is Harry.
Group: - Is he there with you now?
Spirit: - Yes, he is. He says I have not got the handcuffs this time. Oh, he is laughing! He was a very stern, harsh - but a very fair man - very fair.
Group: - What's he saying?
Spirit: - He is going over the things what happened in the past, and so on, and so on.
Group: - Will he help you now?
Spirit: - Oh yes, I will go along with him, but if it was anybody else - no thank you?
Group: - You can trust him, can you?
Spirit: - Oh, I trust him - I was going to say - I would trust him with my life. (Laughter).
Group: - Well you are having a sort of life.
Spirit: - I am having a better life at this present time, than ever I had before. Life is so free, but when I was on earth, I was going from door to door, and looking round to see who was behind the door - life was hell.
Group: - You can be in heaven now; you are on your way. You go with him and he will show you all about it.
Spirit: - Yes, as long as he does not show me prisons (laughter). I have seen enough of those.
Group: What is your name?
Spirit: - Huh! What is my name? Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I can't remember. What I can remember is, it was before the train robbery, before that time - just when you second world war was about to begin. At that time there was a lot of hanky panky going on - lots of little gangs in London - that's where I came from, London. There were gangs all over the place.
Group: - Were you part of one of those gangs?
Spirit: - I am afraid I was leader of one of them, so you could see what style of life I had. So if I was leader, why did I push the leaders of the others? It was just to get power away from them. So there you are. I must thank you for allowing me to come and meet up with my friend. We are friends now, but we were super friends on the earth. He said 'I could could see the good in you even before you realized it was there yourself.' I suppose he's what you call a guardian angel, yes? An angel in blue, with three stripes [a sergeant]. I hate to think what the others are like. Well thank you so much. You know, they tell me you do so much work in this way, but a lot of them do not come back and thank you.
Group: - We don't expect it. It doesn't matter.
Spirit: - It does not matter what you expect. It is what I think should be done.
Group: - Well, we will appreciate it if you do. Enjoy your life.
Spirit: - I will definitely enjoy it now. He is telling me we have many places to go, many places to see, and many things that I can do, that I could not do before.
Group: - The abilities that you had on earth, you can now use, in maybe a better way.
Spirit: - Oh yes! I can help people, instead of helping myself to other people's things. I will help people.
Group: - When they first come over, you can help people too.
Spirit: - Well I must say cheerio.
Group: - Cheerio. Good luck. God speed!
