I was reminded of words noticeable in the title TESTAMENT: 'test' and 'men'; also the word 'amen.' The path to becoming the author of TESTAMENT was discerned after I'd traveled to Oklahoma to interview a family dealing with 'talking poltergeist' phenomena. Paranormal investigators over the years had hypothesized these events to involve some manner of human 'agent' or fulcrum for the puzzling manifestations. I had just completed a nonfiction book manuscript about 'talking poltergeists' throughout the ages when at a local bookstore I found a magazine with the headline 'AMERICA'S TALKING POLTERGEIST.' Upon learning about this contemporary American case, I arranged to interview the family.
TESTAMENT was published in January 1997 with the paperback first edition of the autobiographical nonfiction book in a documentary format. The book is a verbatim and unredacted record of all that happened. I continued keeping an 'audio journal' and recording interviews on microcassettes to further chronicle my life.
Upon publication online of the free Internet edition of TESTAMENT and first portion of the follow-up book NEW TESTAMENT, it persisted to be obvious to me that many people didn't know how to react to the information shared. It seems that when some people hear about myself and the occurrences in my life, they simply find it inconceivable and perhaps turn away. They are overlooking exciting data that would greatly enhance their lives, as my own life was profoundly elevated.
Throughout the texts of my experiences and conversation the reader should always consider the event described and, separately, my choice of words to spontaneously express myself at each particular moment. My incessant spoken reflection was a way to keep a record of events via tape recorder with 'audio journal' and interview transcripts. Usually, like many writers, I’m very quiet and an introvert yet to analyze and talk about the manifold wonderful things chronicled in TESTAMENT I usually affected a bantering persona. There was the influence of my nondenominational Christian background in regard to the immediate conjectures made involving the nature of God and morality.
I found that it is never a simple predicament for imperfect human message bringers when called upon by a perfect Message Giver. Upon the publication of TESTAMENT, I began participating in radio interviews about the book and became an exhibitor at local 'New Age' expositions. In the past, I'd experienced difficulties upon eating meat and after my 'paranormal initiation' I became a vegetarian and soon thereafter a vegan.
In July 2004 after consistently adding new chapters of interview and personal journal transcripts to the TESTAMENT website, I began writing an autobiography in the more usual narrative style. The initial rough first draft was completed in July 2007. In addition to describing the unique circumstances in my life, I decided the book could include some information about comparable occurrences that perhaps might be found chronicled in famous documented cases involving unexplained phenomena. Since April 2009 I've published articles at the Metaphysical Articles blog. A blog articles index of subjects and article titles with links is available at Paranormal People . Org.
During the latter months of 2020, this author set about bringing this TESTAMENT website in order with the absence of my webmaster. New portions expanding the noncommercial online case study are planned to be added in the weeks ahead.
Ignorance and denialist responses by authors and journalists to documented case chronologies of the paranormal and supernatural throughout modern times are contributing factors for countless people today having little awareness of a gamut of spiritual/metaphysical Dispensations involving the God Force manifesting around individual people as a revelation to all.
