9781564149664: The Psychic Life of Abraham Lincoln

In dreams, he foresaw his sudden death. He consulted oracles, and at age 22 was told by a seer that he would become President of the United States.

Obscurantists and historians have dismissed Abraham Lincoln's psychic involvements which, in his own time, were profound state secrets. But Lincoln's rise to power coincided with the Great Age of Spiritualism and, as a Mystical Unionist, he felt he was controlled by "some other power."

Trauma and heartbreak opened the psychic door for this otherworldly President, whose precognitive dreams, evil omens, and trancelike states are carefully documented here in this bold yet poignant chronicle of tragic beginnings, White House séances, and paranormal eruptions of the Civil War era.

Aided by the deathbed memoir of his favorite medium, Lincoln's remarkable psychic experiences come to life with communications from beyond, ESP, true and false prophecies, as well as thumbnail sketches of the most influential spiritualists in Lincoln's orbit. Surveying clairvoyant incidents in Lincoln's life from cradle to grave, the book also examines the Emancipation Proclamation and the unseen powers that moved pen to hand for its historic signing into law.

From the Back Cover:

"For nearly 150 years, historians have been arguing about Abraham Lincoln's involvement with Spiritualism and Spirit mediums. A kind of general consensus among conventional scholars has blamed the seances in the White House and the Lincolns' rendezvous with "spooks" on another of Mary Todd Lincoln's idiosyncrasies. Now in The Psychic Life of Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Susan B. Martinez ventures where more timid researchers dared not tread and boldly describes Lincoln's visions,communications with the Other Side, prophetic dreams, and extrasensory experiences. Well-documented and scholarly, yet very readable, this book is a must for the library of every student of the paranormal as well as every Lincoln scholar."
--Brad Steiger, author of Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits, and Haunted Places and over 160 books on the paranormal.

In this informative and intriguing book, Dr. Susan Martinez digs deeply into the documented records of Lincoln's involvement with mediums, and sets forth a preponderance of evidence suggesting he was indeed guided by benevolent spirits in his most crucial decisions."
--Michael E. Tymn, vice president, Academy of Spirituality and Paranormal Studies, and author of The Articulate Dead

"Dr. Martinez presents compelling evidence that one of America's greatest and most beloved presidents had been deeply involved in Spiritualism. She deserves the appreciation not only of Lincoln scholars and admirers, but of those who are attempting to enrich and deepen their own spiritual quest."
--Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., author and current Alan Watts Professor of Psychology, Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center
