Channeled Messages From Presidents Jefferson, Lincoln and Eisenhower
One of the saddest things about the death of great leaders is the loss of their wisdom. Many people through the ages have wondered what it would be like if we could continue to communicate with notable people who have shaped the world’s destiny. In an exclusive interview, Gates McKibbin shares her channeling experiences, bringing the sentiments of Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Dwight Eisenhower back to life, offering a compelling message for those open to listening.
McKibbin isn’t your stereotypical psychic medium. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois and has received numerous academic awards, as well as a membership to Phi Beta Kappa. She has enjoyed an illustrious career as a corporate executive, a management consultant, and an adjunct college professor specializing in strategic and organizational renewal. However, there had always been a more spiritual side to her, lying in wait for the right moment.
Living life “in the fast lane,” as she describes it, McKibbin’s corporate career eventually took its toll, and chronic stress led to a serious decline in her health. Her physician gave her a blunt choice: Keep your job or regain your health. Taking his advice to heart, McKibbin said goodbye to her fast-paced lifestyle and began journaling. With no financial security and still battling a weak and debilitated body, her life took a strange turn. Suddenly, her deceased father, John McKibbin, began sending her telepathic messages, including encouragement to publish what he had to say from beyond the veil. This continuous engagement with her father not only helped her get through a difficult time but also freed her “to become a very different person.”
While McKibbin’s corporate career continued and remained successful, in the summer of 2001, her psychic door opened even wider. Feeling “something was afoot,” while sitting in the comfort of her San Francisco home one evening, McKibbin grabbed a pen, cleared her mind, and discovered the presence of our second president, Thomas Jefferson.
After introducing himself, she sat stunned and intimidated until the two minds came into sync. As she worked to bring Jefferson’s words to life, McKibbin quickly found gratification, committing to the messages coming forth, and deciding to surrender them to the world when she felt the time was right. Following her sessions with Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln showed up to discuss his troubled presidency and fight to preserve a divided Union.
After five weeks of channeling Jefferson and Lincoln, McKibbin found herself in a state of exhaustion, not sure whether she had any energy left to continue channeling. That’s when Dwight Eisenhower began dictating messages to her on the morning of September 9, 2001.
A few days later, the September 11th tragedy took place. McKibbin was unable to find a publisher to get the presidents’ messages out, and they sat in her flash drive for 18 years. Still, she knew the presidents were offering the same basic advice: Treasure our union, find unity among people, and preserve freedom.
McKibbin’s work has led her down a rabbit hole of consciousness and a multiplicity of dimensions unseen to most. In the late 1990s, she wrote her seminal book, “The Life of the Soul: The Path of Spirit in Your Lifetimes,” unveiling a cosmology outlining the evolution of the soul during and between lifetimes. Her writings discuss the principles of karma and reincarnation, eternal life, the soul’s mission, multiple dimensions of reality, and the lifting of the veil between our earthly awareness and higher consciousness.
McKibbin’s message might have come from the mouths of Lincoln, Jefferson, and Eisenhower directly, as she explains, that “diversity is the best possible ingredient for democracy. It requires us to be tolerant and respectful of other viewpoints. We’re capable of living in the light; of being light, of seeing the stars, no matter how dark it is.”
Through her explorations channeling these great presidents, McKibbin reminds us of the spirit of democracy. Her subsequent book, “Epic Steps: Rekindling Democracy, Unity, and Peace,” offers yet another powerful warning from Dwight D. Eisenhower, who warned of the military-industrial complex more than six decades ago.
Eisenhower told McKibbin, “You have no choice but to establish and maintain a true and lasting global peace. If you do not, the planet will continue on its current course. Perhaps sooner, perhaps later, the tension and violence will escalate to the point that the survival of humankind will hang in the balance. That is not a conjecture. It is a guarantee,” he said.
“Peace throughout a global community is possible. You must believe this. You have no other option.”
Can This Brainwave Study Explain What Happens to Consciousness When We Die?
A new study records the brain waves of a dying person in detail for the very first time. Could the findings explain what happens in our transition into death?
While there is plenty of anecdotal evidence from people who have had Near-death Experiences or NDEs, there is little to no hard scientific data on what happens in the brain as people are dying.
Now, researchers who recorded 15 minutes of brain wave activity in a dying man, are speculating that the findings may explain the phenomenon of life recall or review that many near-death experiencers report.
Dr. Eben Alexander is a neurosurgeon who, in 2008, experienced an NDE as he lay in a coma caused by a serious case of viral meningitis. After a miraculous recovery, he went on to write about the experience in several best-selling books.
“There’s a tremendous amount of evidence that, at the end of life, our consciousness does not just disappear as one might assume if the brain created consciousness,” Alexander said. “But in fact, our consciousness seems to expand in dramatic ways, and I think this is where a deeper understanding of NDEs is crucial for us to understand the mind-brain relationship and the nature of consciousness itself.”
To Alexander, while the study is a step in the right direction towards understanding what happens when we die, it is fraught with some misunderstandings.
“Now, there are many problems with this study and the main thing I’ll point out here is, first of all, do not confuse correlation with causality,” Alexander said.
“This is a common mistake in neuroscience and it results from the unproven assumption, and in fact, I would say a disproven assumption, that the brain is creating consciousness, and therefore, to find any change in phenomenal consciousness we must look for a neural correlate; some physiologic change in the brain. And modern studies just show that that reasoning is false, there’s more to it than just what’s going on in the brain.”
