Spirit Guide, Silver Birch
(Passed on over 3,000 years ago)
(A Psychic Portrait by
Artist Marcel Poncin)

Spiritualism's Greatest Propagandist
and 20th-Century Trance-Teachings Medium -
and a Two-World's Partnership that Spanned 61 years

Because of the mediumship and literary skills of Maurice Barbanell, hundreds of thousands of books about mediums and mediumship, presenting irrefutable survival evidence of all souls after death, are to be found in the world today.

This accomplished journalist, and superb medium for the teachings of one of the most influential and wise Spirit Guides ever to have contacted this Earth-world, virtually single-handedly promoted the existence of a life after death at at time when mediumship was not taken seriously by the 20th-century media.

Through the printed word, which includes several of his own books as well as volumes of Silver Birch's teachings, Maurice Barbanell - along with the support of  influential colleagues such as Lord Dowding, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Arthur Findlay, and Sir Oliver Lodge - spread the good news of a life eternal to millions of souls who were desperate to speak again with their loved ones.

The world owes a great debt to Maurice Barbanell - to his mighty pen, to his courage and intelligence, and also to the gift of his superb mediumship which brought us the trance-teachings of an old soul who took on the guise of a humble American Indian known as "Silver Birch" in order to be readily accepted by us, but who, in fact, was a much more ancient and wise Being of Light.

The beauty of this spirit guide's language is unsurpassed, and his wisdom has helped many millions of people to live their lives in happiness. Silver Birch's teachings explain to us why we have incarnated, point out to us the meaning of our existence, and also reveal to us the Universal Natural Laws by which we are all governed, and under which we all must live.

Anyone who has not read the works of Silver Birch is not educated in the ways of the spirit - Silver Birch's books are unique, and should be read by everyone who wants to attain health and harmony in mind, body and spirit, and who wishes to discover the purpose and meaning to existence.

Medium and guide co-operated for 61 years before Maurice Barbanell joined his inspirer in the world of spirit in 1981.

Here is a short example of the spirit sage's teachings:

Silver Birch Speaks:

"Man was born to be free, to dwell in liberty. He was not born to be a slave, bound and fettered. His life should be full of richness, the richness of mind and body and spirit. All knowledge should be open to him, all truth, all wisdom, all inspiration. He should dwell in the splendour of the spirit with none of the cramping, irksome, vexatious restrictions imposed upon him by those who would deny his heritage and thwart his destiny.

"The power of the spirit is the power of life. The reason why there is life is because Spirit is there. The power that fashioned the whole universe, majestic though it is and stupendously vast, is the same power which enables you to exist here and hereafter for all time.

"The power that enables you to love, to think, to care, to judge, to reflect, to decide, to weigh, to ponder, to be inspired, to reach the heights and depths of the whole gamut of human feelings - that power is the power of the spirit."
