7.9 – ALIENS & THE CIVIL WAR (4.10.15)

LINCOLN’S VISIONS [10d]

Springfield, Illinois. November 7, 1860. The morning after hearing the triumphant news that he has been elected president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln wakes up from a deep sleep and gazes into a full-length mirror in his bedroom and has a startling vision.

“He saw two images of himself in the mirror. One face was healthy and well. The other was a pale, ghostly image of it. He got up, looked at the mirror, checked it, to see if there was something wrong, then he laid down again thinking, ‘Well, it’s just my imagination.’”

Christopher Coleman
(Author, The Paranormal Presidency of Abraham Lincoln)

Thinking his mind was playing tricks on him, Lincoln checked the mirror a second time. Each time, his two faces confronted him, one five times paler than the other. Lincoln told his wife Mary about the vision.

“Lincoln relied on Mary quite a bit. When he told her about the vision, she became deathly afraid, because she interpreted it to mean that he would have two terms as president. One he would be healthy and well, and the second term, he would die in office.”

Christopher Coleman
(Author, The Paranormal Presidency of Abraham Lincoln)

If the ghostly reflection in the mirror was not a hallucination, then what was it?

“It’s not too big of a stretch to think that perhaps President Lincoln was somehow influenced by otherworldly beings during the course of the war. It was that important. It took on immense cosmic significance.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

Was Abraham Lincoln actually able to receive messages from an extraterrestrial realm that helped him anticipate the future? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and point out that the president himself believed he was the instrument of a higher power.

“Abraham Lincoln is such a mystery still to us even though dozens and dozens and dozens of books have been written about him. But Lincoln himself was something of a mystic. I think he had a belief in the supernatural. At least three different times during the war, he told friends that he had had a dream about being on a boat with no rudder, with no sail, with no tiller. It’s adrift. He is powerless to steer it, and it’s heading toward a shore.”

Richard Lewis (Civil War Historian)

“Every time he had that dream, something important happened during the war, mainly the battles. Antietam, Stones River, Shiloh, Gettysburg. Lincoln believed he was psychic. He believed in the paranormal. He had a strong belief in his own destiny.”

Christopher Coleman
(Author, The Paranormal Presidency of Abraham Lincoln)

Is it really possible that Abraham Lincoln was given premonitions about the war by extraterrestrial beings? Could he have been chosen because he represented the best hope for preserving the Union and ensuring the continuation of the Great American Experiment?

“Abraham Lincoln saw the United States as this great experiment in democracy. That for it to fail, that meant that the concepts of democracy would fail throughout the world.”

– John V. Quarstein
(Author, The Civil War on the Virginia Peninsula)

“Lincoln is infused with a desire to keep the Union together. And he himself said, ‘If I could keep the Union together by freeing all the slaves, I would do it. If I could keep the Union together by not freeing the slaves, I would do it.’ His paramount focus is restoring the Union.”

Richard Lewis (Civil War Historian)

In addition to his own premonitions, some say that Lincoln may also have been influenced by the visions of a Spiritualist named Nettie Colburn. In December of 1862, during the darkest days of the Civil War, Nettie became a spiritual advisor for Mary Todd Lincoln, who was a devout believer in mysticism.

“She claimed to have attended séances with Lincoln multiple times and, while in a trance, claimed to have advised him on the war.  Now, proving that is sometimes difficult, but in my research, I did find, on several points, Nettie’s story does check out.”

Christopher Coleman
(Author, The Paranormal Presidency of Abraham Lincoln)

According to Nettie’s autobiography, otherworldly beings used her to communicate with President Lincoln during séances and even advised him to issue the Emancipation Proclamation. And another mystic, J.B. Conklin, claimed these voices actually dictated to the president a first draft of the historic document.

“Things that not only Nettie did, but other people in the Spiritualist movement did, was they were giving him messages about how important the Emancipation Proclamation was, and it was something that Lincoln took as divine sort of guidance. And so it appears to have played a role in his decision making.”

Diane Hennacy Powell, MD (Author, The ESP Enigma)

“It’s quite possible that, at one of these events, he received messages from otherworldly beings, possibly even extraterrestrial beings, in order to preserve the Union as part of this immense master plan for humanity.

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

“What that leads us to is the possibility that some of the same extraterrestrials that were being seen in numerous UFO sightings before and during the Civil War were able to form a direct contact to Lincoln, through Nettie Colburn Maynard, to give him the messages that he needed to be able to steer the outcome of the Civil War.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

Was Abraham Lincoln literally destined for greatness? Might aliens have been guiding him through his dreams and visions during the Civil War? If so, what was their purpose? Perhaps the answer can be found with an incredible encounter at Gettysburg.
