This author considers the paranormal to be a normal, little understood part of life. Our ancestors took the paranormal on faith, without proof. For the most part, in modern times, we refuse to take the paranormal seriously because we don’t understand it. That’s the key. One day we will have all the scientific proof we need. But, for now, the paranormal is truly “para” – outside the normal.
The Hopis said we would be communicating on an invisible web when it happens. Astrologers say we are moving into a different age, The Age of Aquarius. In India, 2012 marks the end of the Kali Yuga, or degenerate age. The Mayan call it the World of the Fifth Sun, an awakening to a more spiritual time. It’s been happening now for a while, this movement away from the material world of the Fourth Sun into a new, more spiritual era. Transcendentalists tried to tell us about ether in the late 1800’s. Nostradamus called it the Apocalypse – the lifting of the veil – a time of enlightenment. What will happen, not just on the day, at noon, but in a grander sense?
According to the legends of Marblehead, Massachusetts, old seer and psychic Edward Dimond climbed Burial Hill and projected his voice hundreds of miles in raging storms to help the town's fishing vessels in trouble. The men on board, again, according to legend, heard Ed’s voice shouting instructions to them, probably recognizing his voice as that of a wise and trusted neighbor, jumped to, and following his every command, saved themselves and their ship. This blog post explores the author's search to better understand Edward Dimond's psychic ability.
The author's book, When Two Women Die, also explores other Marblehead legends, including The Screeching Woman, who was dragged ashore and killed by pirates in 1690.
If you've ever been to Marblehead, there's something very old about the town that makes you believe these legends are absolutely true.
