A sincere and straightforward autobiographical account of a woman with the special gifts of prevision and precognition, this retraces many years of experience and interest in spiritualism and the occult. From her childhood in Ireland, with a disbelieving, disapproving aunt and uncle, Eileen Garrett soon realized that she was different. Marrying suddenly, in London, she had a third experience with the prevision of death- that of her child, and she made a second marriage- out of pity -- knowing that her new husband would die on the battlefield. After the visit of an incorporeal personality which saved her daughter's life, she deliberately developed her capacities of healing, psychometry, clairvoyance and clairaudience; became a professional trance medium; took part in British and American societies for psychical research and in the Rine extra -- sensory perception experiments at Duke. And all these manifestations of the world beyond consciousness have their explanation here. For believers, and followers.
