Continuing on from his books After Death: Letter from Julia and The Blue Island, pioneering journalist, William Thomas Stead, who in 1912 went down on the Titanic, communicated additional advice and information from the spheres beyond our physical existence, or what some call, the afterlife.

Following more than twenty years of communication, directly and via mediums Hester Dowden and Geraldine Cummins, Stead’s daughter, Estelle, published Life Eternal in 1933.

In this book, Stead expands on and clarifies “The Blue Island,” the illusory state, he and other passengers and crew on the Titanic found themselves after their physical deaths. He describes that time as “a period following a shattering shock, and a great and sudden change.”

He goes on to say:

“As a matter of fact a "cure" was being accomplished, and … we awoke, rubbed our eyes, and found ourselves in a world not so unlike your own: a world in which we all felt awkward and strange at first. Then we knew that the Blue Island was a dream common to all of us, and that now we should go on our separate ways, and begin our new life.”

Stead discusses a broad range of subjects including the so-called spheres of existence, reincarnation, children in the afterlife, good and evil, the method and challenge of communication between the spheres and much, much more.

Comparing the physical world to where he now resided he remarked, “Your Earth is like the sediment at the bottom of a vessel, the higher you go, the clearer the fluid becomes.”

About the Author

Stead, William Thomas (Embleton, Northumberland, July 5, 1849 - Titanic, 1912)

Known to the general public primarily as a dedicated journalist, author, social reformer, and pacifist, William Thomas Stead was on his way to New York to give a speech on world peace at Carnegie Hall when he became a victim of the "Titanic."

Stead is remembered in psychic circles as the founder of Borderland, a quarterly journal devoted to psychical subjects, and as founder of Julia's Bureau, a psychic bureau intended to demonstrate the reality of survival after death as well as to assist in a spiritual revival. In 1891-92, stories from Borderland were compiled into two separate volumes - "Real Ghost Stories" and "More Ghost Stories," and in 1897 they were published under one title, "Real Ghost Stories." These true cases of apparitions, hauntings, astral projection, clairvoyance, and premonitions, collected by Stead, have since become a classic under the title Borderland. Stead was also an automatic writing medium when alive and a frequent spirit communicator after his death.
