Are You Willing To Be Possessed By An Inter-Dimensional Entity?
There was a time when Ruth Montgomery seemed the epitome of skepticism. She was an award-winning journalist – a syndicated political columnist and foreign correspondent; even having been elected president of the women’s National Press Club in the United States. “But a good reporter,” as she once told the audience in one of her consciousness-raising and life-changing talks, “must also have an open mind, and little by little, through my extensive investigations, I finally became convinced of the validity of the communication between the living and the so-called dead, who have simply moved on into a different vibratory level of eternal life.” These profound words came from one of the most celebrated telepaths of the 20th century, sort of like a female version of Prof. Charles Xavier in X-Men, and the incredible story of her life and transformation finally saw print in Ruth Montgomery: Herald of the New Age, written by Montgomery herself along with Joanne Garland. It is subtitled “The spiritual odyssey of the world’s psychic authority,” and is published by Doubleday & Co. Her journey into the unknown began when Arthur Ford, another celebrated medium, told her that she had the inherent talent to do automatic writing, “a mysterious process in which one first meditates and then, still in the alpha state that it produces, holds a pencil lightly poised above a sheet of paper.” Why, one might ask, should she believe in stuff like this? She put all her reportorial tricks to work and realized the Ford’s spirit contact, an entity named Fletcher, made other revelations – including intimate details about her deceased father – that “proved stunningly accurate in every detail.” Automatic writing sounds easy and even sounds like fun. The first time she tried it, disappointingly, nothing happened, “and after giving it a few minutes each morning I would throw down the pencil and dash off to the Capitol or the white House to earn an honest living.” However, on the tenth day, “some otherworldly force of Herculean strength seemed to grasp my hand, and although my eyes were closed, it propelled the pencil into circles and figure eights with such pressure that I thought the lead would break. I could not have dropped it if I tried.” The next day, a friend who was more versed in the supernatural told her excitedly, “That’s the way it always begins. It’s their way of expressing joy that contact at last has been made. Be sure to continue it.” Continue she did. The following morning, the pencil wrote messages from Ruth’s father and her other relatives who have passed away. Eventually, an entity named “Lily” declared that he would now take over as Ruth’s spirit mentor. Since then, “beautiful philosophy began to flow through the racing pencil.” One morning, the forces that were doing the writing, which Ruth called her “Guides,” announced emphatically, “Go to your typewriter! We think now we have developed the strength to type through you!” As her physic life flowered, she began to wonder how in the world she could reconcile that to her professional life. Her career was oriented towards international- and political affairs, and her byline has gained respect in what is virtually a man’s world. Even presidents called her by her first name. These messages were so powerful and inspiring and they truly deserve to be told to the entire world. But the source is highly unorthodox, to say the least. Ruth’s doubts were elegantly voiced by her mother: “Don’t write that book or they will think you’re a kook!” What were those messages anyways? The Guides strongly endorsed the power of prayer and of love, the great need for the soul to recognize its true nature, and the absolute truth of eternal life. An unforgettable lesson was learned along the way. Ruth suffered agonizing back spasms wrought by the grueling itinerary of the 1960 presidential showdown between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon. “It was the middle of a thrilling campaign; my timing couldn’t have been worse.” At the hospital she grousing, but instantly felt sorry for a patient with pneumonia who, said the nurse, would probably die in a matter of hours. Ruth prayed for the stranger – and he miraculously got well. Startled, Ruth has proved it to herself that earnest prayers in behalf of others are indeed answered, even if self-centered ones are not. At the time, Ruth was working for media giant Hearst, which owned International News Service. When INS merged with United Press to form United Press International, she was one of the few whop were retained, and she got promoted as Chief Washington correspondent. At the same time, “I had been caught up in an exciting new world that had nothing to do with politics or world affairs. I was baffled, thrilled and puzzled by that intoxicating realm that seemed to lie beyond our three-dimensional world.” In the end, of course, it was Ruth’s judgment call. The messages were multiplying, and she decided to reveal them to all. The books “aroused a tremendous outpouring of enthusiasm from people of every religious faith, including members of the clergy.” The public found the revelations fascinating and comforting at the same time. “They helped me to see my Christian faith in a new light,” goes one testimonial. Ruth Montgomery, who was highly instrumental in the spread and popularity of the essence of spiritual evolution, together with the Higher Powers she channel, say decisively and authoritatively that there is no death. “When our bodies die,” she tells her audience, “we simply change our energy frequencies. The ultimate goal, for all of us, is to live such loving, helpful lives that ultimately we may be reunited with out Creator. We began when the Creator cast off the sparks that became our souls. He gave us free will, and as we, misused that precious gift, errors inevitable crept in, but now is the opportunity for a new beginning. The New Age to come, the Age of Aquarius, is foretold to be an era of such love and understanding that those of us, who will be here to experience it, whether in this lifetime or the next, will indeed be blessed. And thank you all so much! You’re wonderful!” Ruth Montgomery photo courtesy of SpiritCommunicators.com
