Dr. Peebles was a naturopath, and became a medical doctor at the age of sixty. He wrote prolifically on the topics of Spiritualism and mysticism. He was a Spiritualist minister, and also a channel himself. He traveled the earth extensively, five times, visiting South Africa, China, Australia, Ireland, and other remote regions…all during a time when there were no airplanes! He was the American Consulate to Turkey. I once saw a show on the History Channel that mentioned Dr. Peebles, and that he was one of the founders of the Kellogg’s company, although, because of his controversial beliefs in spirits and natural medicine, he was considered to be the scourge of the company, and shunned. The Kellogg's company makes no mention of him as being one of the founders.
Dr. Peebles was a doctor and surgeon during the Civil War. He actively campaigned against slavery, and for women’s suffrage. He was a remarkably compassionate and caring man.
As he wrote in his book, Death Defeated:
"Children have the right, the inalienable right, to a healthy and harmonious parentage. Every child should be a wished-for child."
I love the fact that Dr. Peebles was a man who walked the earth. It is because of this that he has such deep compassion for us human beings, and such a deep understanding of our hurts and pains, because he has experienced such things in the flesh, rather than simply observing them from the perspective of an angel who has never incarnated. He knows that this school called Planet Earth is the toughest school in the universe, and that we are "courageous" for choosing the be here!
Dr. Peebles was loved by so many when he was upon the earth. The publisher of Dr. Peebles’ book, Seers of the Ages, wrote of Dr. Peebles:
“In conclusion we will say that Dr. Peebles is distinguished as an author, orator, physician and traveler. His name is recognized in every clime that encircles the globe. His kindness and benevolence are too well known to need mention.”
Over one hundred thousand people came to Dr. Peebles’ memorial service in Los Angeles when he died. His secret to such a long life? He was eighty-two when he wrote this:
“I have no conception of ‘tottering’ down the decline of life,” he admitted, “The phrase is beyond my comprehension. I expect to work on to the very morning of my departure, and sleep into the better land of immortality at the sunset of the same evening. I feel as though I had but just begun to live—to see, to comprehend. I am planning work for twenty-five coming years.
“Heights rise above me, and I am conscious of the mighty immensities lying beyond. Sometimes, for the moment, a sad thought comes to me when I think that I have outlived so many of my esteemed contemporaries. They are not dead, but my co-workers still.
“Personally, I am too busy to think about death, and there is anyway, too much fuss made about dying. It is nature’s process of laying down a fleshly burden, and of the rising of the spiritual, up into the brightness and blessed beatitudes of immortality.”
It is a joy and a blessing to be the "little channel" for this immensely beautiful spirit.
God bless you, Dr. Peebles!
