Could the things people say about their experiences of paranormal phenomena, such as telepathy, precognitive dreams, angels etc., be imagination run wild or could they be real experiences? Should we without further consideration reject the major religions - or dismiss the stories of unexpected healings, spiritual experiences, or other unusual events as fiction or coincidence? Anne Skjønsberg went in search of explanations for the inexplicable, and in this book presents the fruits of her extensive reading. With the major religious traditions as background, she provides a fascinating presentation of strange phenomena and abilities, duly recorded and witnessed, as well as research and the theories around them. Consciousness, dreams and visualization, spirit beings and channelling, near-death experiences and reincarnation are key topics among the many aspects discussed. The book comes complete with a detailed bibliography and reference notes and index.
