Anybody Out There?
Passage from Chapter Ten
Is There More To Life Than What We Know?
I waited for Rev. Fredrics to pull out a billet and read it. How else is he going to know what questions had been asked? But I was totally amazed by what he did next. He pulled out a roll of duct tape and two small pieces of cloth from his brief case. He placed the two small pieces of cloth over his eyes and proceeded to duct tape his eyes shut. He also used a scarf as a blindfold. He asked the group to sing “Amazing Grace” so that the singing could heighten the vibration in the room.
As we sang and waited for his channel source to come through, I watched him stand behind the podium and slip into a trance. I thought my eyes were playing tricks, because as Rev. Fredrics was connecting with his guide, I noticed a bluish color orb descending from above him and then entering into the top of his head. The blue orb took on the shape of Rev. Fredrics, as it became a small thin aura around his body. I asked the woman sitting next to me if she saw the blue orb around him and she looked at me as if I were crazy.
Next, the entity channeling through Rev. Fredrics, reached for the basket on the podium, pulled out a billet, placed it on the forehead of Rev. Fredrics, and asked of the audience, “Does anyone know a Frank? The last name is like the amusement park, Coney Island.” A person sitting behind me said, “I know a Frank Coney, he was my husband!” “Is your name Sara?” asked the entity. “Yes, that’s me!” replied the woman. “Frank’s asked how are the boys, Pete and Danny?” “They are fine,” she replied. “To answer your question Sara, look in the garage in the cedar chest, the papers are in there,” said the entity through Rev. Fredics.
I was in total shock. I had never experienced anything like this before! It was as if the deceased person was in the room and you could have a conversation with them. I was amazed at what I had just witnessed, and I couldn’t wait for him to read my billet. Rev. Fredrics’ channel source pulled out billet after billet and with every billet he read, he provided correct answers to the questions from the loved ones brought through. He pulled out a billet from one of the skeptics in the room and asked, “Is there a Greg in the room?” “Yes, I am Greg.” “Well, Greg,” said the entity, “You did not write out this billet correctly”. After a short pause, he continued. “You left off the names of people you want to contact. We will try to see if we can find anyone.” There was another short pause. “Yes, I see a woman and she tells me her name is Shirley. Is this your mother?” Greg acknowledged that it was. “She wants you to know that you should let bygones be bygones; you will know what she means,” said the Reverend. “Yes I do, and thank you,” said Greg. “Wow!” I thought, “I bet he is not skeptical anymore!”
Rev. Frederic’s’ channel source must have gone through over forty billets. As I anxiously awaited my turn, the anticipation was driving me crazy. At one point he crumpled a billet up and threw it on the ground. “Oh no!” I thought to myself. “Was that mine? “This is unreadable; this billet was filled out incorrectly,” said the Reverend. He went to the next billet. “I see a hawk in the air.” I thought to myself, “This has to be mine - it must be Sparrow Hawk he is talking about.” But before I could say anything, he said, “The hawk stands for the name Hawkins. Is there a Hawkins in the room?” Someone from the front of the room said, “Yes, I’m Hawkins.”
Finally he asked, “Is there a Joseph in the room?” “Yes! I am Joseph,” I cried as I shot up from my chair. The Reverend continued, “This is a humorous one. There is a woman dressed in black, shaking her finger at you. She is now walking over to a kettle of some sort; no, it’s a pot. She is cooking, and it smells wonderful, her name is Jenny. Do you know her?”
“Yes,” I said, “She is my Grandmother!” (For the record, I had never met Rev. Ronald Fredrics in my life).
“Well, Joseph, your grandmother is an excellent cook - it smells so good in here," said the Reverend. “She wants me to tell you to please keep up with your studies and that you are doing great. Yes, your manuscript will be published. It will sell very well and people will enjoy it! And if you think this manuscript is good, just wait until your next writing - it will be a best seller! Also, your grandmother tells me that your Uncle Carmen is here and he also says to keep on writing.”
I was in tears because my grandmother came to me just as I remembered her. When I was little and got into trouble with her, she used to shake her finger and yell at me in Italian. She was always in the kitchen cooking. She was the best! There is no doubt in my mind that this true communication happened. I knew that there was no way that Rev. Ronald Fredrics could possibly have known about my family, and certainly he could not have known the question I would ask.
After the séance I waited for Rev. Fredrics to thank him. However, he had no idea what I was talking about! He explained to me that when he channels, he is in a complete trance and has no idea about what has taken place. After hearing some of my experiences, he invited me to attend a class he taught on Friday nights. He felt I needed guidance to help me advance in my spiritual path. Wow, was I honored to be in his class. I couldn’t wait for Friday to come.
