Where we started

Maurice Barbanell

Silver Birch gave his teachings through a medium named Maurice Barbanell.

Barbanell was the founder and editor of the weekly Spiritualist newspaper, Psychic News, and for half a century devoted his life to spreading spiritual knowledge through its columns and those of other publications with which he was associated.

In his own obituary, which he wrote before his passing at the age of 79 on 17th July 1981, he revealed that he was told by Estelle Roberts’ Red Cloud — a spirit guide for whom he had the greatest admiration and affection — that in a previous incarnation he had made a promise to reincarnate and devote his life to spreading Spiritualism. Though he had no conscious knowledge of that life or promise, events certainly conspired to make it possible.

Silver Birch

A psychic artist depicts him as a serious-looking native American Indian with a single feather and compassionate eyes. There is evidence to suggest that this was simply a convenient persona behind which a far more spiritually evolved soul hid in order that those who read his words would judge them not by the name attached to them but by the wisdom that pervades every sentence.

Those who knew both the guide and his medium were well aware of the differences in the way they spoke and the words they used. They both had spiritual missions and they fulfilled them admirably, particularly when working together in their unique two-world partnership. This, as you will discover, has provided inspirational answers to the questions we all ask from time to time, about life, its meaning and purpose. Those answers are needed now more than ever before as we prepare for the many challenges that confront us and our world in the 21st century.

THEY WALKED AMONG US
The Life Story of Materialisation Medium Alec Harris

Alec Harris, a former sceptic about psychic matters, became one of the world’s most brilliant materialisation mediums. In this book, his wife, Louie, describes his reluctant development and some of the astounding phenomena that occurred at their regular seances.

Though Alec Harris knew no other language than English, spirit communicators spoke in various tongues. Once Mahatma Gandhi materialised and conversed with an eminent medical man in Hindustani.

Another visitor was a professional illusionist. His “dead” father appeared and, among his evidence, used a pet name known only to the sitter’s family. Meanwhile, an editor tells of seeing thirty solid forms during a two-and-a-half hour seance. One, a girl, revealed the top of her body to dispose of any suggestion of trickery. It is also noteworthy that sometimes Alec Harris and the materialisations were viewed simultaneously. Many spirit figures literally walked across the room.

Countless individuals received cast-iron evidence at Alec Harris’ sittings. Read how, for example, a “dead” son returned to his parents, pointing out that he had even duplicated the deformed breastbone he had when on earth.

RECENT PUBLICATION

TO THE GREAT SPIRIT
A Selection of Prayers by Silver Birch

Silver Birch, the spirit guide and trance control of medium Maurice Barbanell, was renowned not only for his spiritual philosophy, wisdom and guidance, but equally for his eloquent use of the English language, which he had never actually spoken while on earth.

Nowhere is this mastery more evident than in the lyrical, heartfelt prayers he offered as opening invocations at the weekly sittings of the Hannen Swaffer Home Circle, and when conducting two-world dedications of new Spiritualist venues.

This book contains a small selection of those timeless and beautiful prayers, first published in 1941 in response to requests from Silver Birch’s many admirers. It will provide a uniquely inspirational and thought-provoking resource for all who conduct public services today.

RECENT PUBLICATION

THE TRUMPET SHALL SOUND

Who hasn’t wondered at some point whether there’s life after death? Finding the answer becomes even more important when we experience the loss of someone very close.

Death raises many questions. Did they suffer? Could they hear what I whispered to them at the end? Did they mean to take their own life or was it an accident? Did they know how much I loved them? And above all – will we meet again?

This book contains verbatim conversations between spirit individuals – who gave detailed proof of their identity – and their earthly loved ones. These intimate exchanges took place in the private home circle of the world-famous medium Estelle Roberts, whose public demonstrations regularly packed London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Read with an open mind, the evidence of survival beyond death in this volume is so compelling that it will cause even the hardened sceptic to reconsider.

Silver Birch Quote

Each animal has its own evolution to outwork. Whatever lives does so because it is spirit. Spirit is life, life is spirit. Therefore every living thing – creature, bird, fish, flower, tree, fruit – is spirit. Show love not only to your fellow human beings but to animals. Do not exploit people, do not exploit animals, do not exploit nature.
