Linda Polley in the 1990s.

Thanks for visiting my page! As editor of VOICES FROM SPIRIT MAGAZINE I've decided to include all the articles I've written we've published, and added a few of my favorites here. Of course I do all the typing, both of the rough draft and, the finished copy of VOICES, after first taking dictation for Gerald's articles in long hand. And of course the best part of my job is getting to ask the questions to all the Spirits that borrow Gerald's body for our Interviews. Sometimes he just repeats to me what he hears Spirits telling him, which is fascinating material to write down. I set appointments for Gerald's radio interviews, read books to review, (I'll give some samples of these here) write down all Gerald's books for him, edit them and type them up, answer mail, help maintain this web site, and last but not least do boring old housework. When I get a break I enjoy playing my keyboard, or, bass accordion, and watching a few sci fi or mystery t.v. shows.
I'm probably the only person in the world that dares to call the Spirit of Rudolph Valentino Rudy, that has sung in our apartment with the Spirit of Elvis Presley, tells jokes with Lou Costello and W.C. Fields, and has dared to say, with no disrespect intended, "May the Force be with you!" to the Spirit Of St. Luke!
I'm including a few of my favorite articles first. I hope you'll enjoy them.

Married life is hard enough sometimes, naturally, but for me it is not really as hard as it is downright confusing! When I met my husband-to-be at a Spiritualist seance in 1971 I had no idea what it would be like for someone to marry a psychic medium. Six months or so later I found out, and he's never been the same since....literally! I never know from one minute to the next if he's going to be leaving his body going into trance for a short time, and one of his Spirit Guides, or, some Spirit of a famous historical figure will be "borrowing" him to leave a message for me, or for the magazine, or just will come to talk a while. The Spirit may not even be one who was well known; sometimes I'm not sure if some of these beings ARE Spirits.
I may sound like I'm complaining, but I love every minute of this unusual life we have together, and it makes things even more interesting when I go into trance once and a while with my Guides, too.
Things just get a bit difficult around here for me, trying to keep track of these comings and goings and who's who, but I am always very glad to have such honored company. This has been going on for fifteen years, and I hope it continues as long as we're on Earth.
Perhaps some day I may be visiting someone from The Spirit World. I hope if so, they willmake me as welcome!

I regret I have to write this little article but I have a pet peeve that is growing more irritating day by day. That is- our readers- several of them subscribers for years- getting the name of this magazine wrong in correspondence and ads! Don't get me wrong, I love all of you who show interest in our work, but this is "VOICES FROM SPIRIT MAGAZINE," NOT "Voices From The Spirit," which I believe is another publication altogether, nor is this "Voices Of Spirit," or, "Voices Of The Spirit."
This is Voices From Spirit Magazine, so named by me in the '70s to emphasize our "The Spirits Speak" column. I hope you will understand my wish to express my irritation on this matter, and try to call us by our real name.

Daily we receive blessings from Our Loved Ones in Spirit. Some of us might not even know They are there, watching over us. Still, They help everyone They can, and guide us on our proper Path to Enlightenment. Give thanks for Their Help every day. Remember that no one is ever truly alone. There is always a friend nearby.

The other day I heard a Christian friend of ours make a statement that really disturbed me. He said he couldn't understand how it must feel for someone who hadn't been saved to cope with all their burdens of sin and worry. That it feels so wonderful to know The Nazarene was there, helping him with his problems.
Well, of course we know The Nazarene helps all who worship Him, just as our Lords, The Great Teachers and Spirits who have done good in their lifetimes, help guide us every day..
The only difference in this, is when we tell our troubles and wrong doings to The Lords, we don't expect them to be completely taken from us, we have to ourselves work at doing better in this lifetime, and try to right the wrongs we've committed, accept we have done them, and continue to grow; and, with the help of Our Blessed Ones, become better.
I do not personally understand why it is so terrible I am not a Christian. I am a Friend Of The Nazarene, and all who truly worship Him, as I am to the good people of all faiths, that do not commit sacrifice or teach evil. I do not go out and commit crimes, lie or cheat people. There is no one in the world I hate. I accept the fact that others are different from me and have their own religious beliefs, and do not try to force others to accept my own faith, and I hope they will treat me in the same way.
I do not feel I am weighted down with burdens. I have The Love Of Spirit, know The Truth, and feel I am free!

As Halloween rolls around again, several people will be asking the questions, "Are there such things as ghosts?" and "What are ghosts....really?"
To put it simply, of course there are ghosts, because if Spirits exist, there have to be ghosts. You see, Spirits and Ghosts are, as far as form and substance go, the same. The only difference between the two is that a Ghost is a Spirit which is trapped between Earh and The Spirit World by either its own beliefs that it hasn't died, or emotional attachment to a situation or, surrounding. Or a curse put on them by someone during its lifetime may be blocking its progress. Some ghosts are mischievous Spirits liking to play tricks on people in The Material World. How ghosts are perceived when encountered, depends on the degrees of psychic ability the person coming in contact with them has, and how the Ghost perceives itself, or wishes to be perceived by people in this realm.
Also Ghosts may wish to relate a message to someone before crossing over to The Spirit World. However, most Ghosts have to be helped by a psychic or other Spirits to find their Way to their True Dwelling Place; to follow The Light Out Of The Darkness of Misunderstanding.

Patrick Troughton, British actor who was the second Doctor in the famous DOCTOR WHO series asked us to make some comments on the recent DOCTOR WHO movie produced by the Fox network.
It was fair, but the general opinion of all the previous Doctors is they don't like the way they changed the TARDIS. They made it look too primitive. Though it is supposed to be an older model this was a little bit ridiculous. Perhaps in future movies they can return a little bit of its character and dignity. Otherwise than that, they consider the movie a half decent effort, much better than they expected from 'the Colonials.'

Notes & Messages By A Spirit Thusfar Unknown To The Material World
Channeled Through Speaker Gerald A. Polley

I'm not the famous poet, but my mother loved his works so she named me Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, after him. It has come to my knowledge that several persons have requested information directed from The Spirit World by other than famous Spirits, as is done in The Spirits Speak column. And I have been asked to fulfill these requests, and begin a new column, which will feature ordinary Spirits and tell about their existences in The Spirit World. I hope you people will bear with me, as I am an actor, not a writer, and have not had much experience with these type of things like channeling and automatic writing.
As mentioned, I am an actor. I was not of this profession during my lifetime, but needed a change of pace from a desk job, and had always wanted to try out. So far I have had several jobs on television-yes, we do have those and, movies here- and had very good fortune with these. My best roles seem to be in science fiction. The series I am currently starring in is called "Sharo's Hunter." It is sort of a space age Robin Hood, in which I play a Han Solo type character, who robs from the rich and gives to the poor. It is currently a very popular series.
I live in a place like 17th century England in The Spirit World, in a plain cottage near the ocean where the fishing boats and sailing ships come in. I wear that style of casual clothing. People sometimes accuse me of dressing like a pirate, though I never wear a hat. My last lifetime, however, was during 19th century England where I lived in the city and wore very proper dress for a businessman.
When I now go to work, it is in the part of The Spirit World that is like 20th Century America. As you can see, here there are sections of the world that look like any time period of any place that ever existed. It sounds complicated, but I'm used to it!
It is sometimes difficult for people to tell where I lived before I came to this world because I had to learn to speak like an American for a role I had a while back, and now I'm "hooked" on the "accent"! Some say I look like I was born there!
Well, guess I've written long enough. Hope you've enjoyed this. Thank you for taking time to read my words. All my best, Henry.

Notes And Messages By A Spirit Thusfar Unknown To The Material World
Channeled Through Speaker Gerald A. Polley

Jolly-o, pip pip, and all that! Hello, all of you good people out there! My name is Fred, and if you haven't guessed by now, I'm a bit of the English.
Here in The Spirit World, I am an actor currently starring in The Spirit World version of a very popular British science fiction series called Dr. Who.
Spirit television is a little bit different from the way it works on Earth. Here people all over the world order the daily episodes of your show. If you continue to get enough orders to make your productions worthwile you keep going, if you do not continue to get enough orders for them you stop making them. Fortunately we are one of the most popular shows currently running.
It is funny sometimes to visit parts of the world that are still like the 1900s, and to see our shows shown in cinemas with the dialogue written at the bottom of the picture.
How, do you ask, do people there have the time for so much entertainment in Spirit?
Well, as Spirits only work an eight hour day, sometimes less, and most do not bother to sleep, this leaves sixteen hours to fill, so entertainment is an important and vital industry. the only problem with The Spirit World is its perfection, and finding things to occupy your time between lifetimes can be very important!
I really enjoy my work, and love doing personal appearances with my traveling companions from the show. My life long experience in the vaudeville theaters gave me ample training to carry on the profession in Spirit, and I thoroughly enjoy my work.
There is just something about taking a half hour or hour of peoples' time and filling it with fun and adventure that makes me feel extremely good! And any profession a person has in Spirit should do this...make them feel extremely good!
I hope you have enjoyed my little talk and if you have any questions be sure to ask. I'd love to talk with you again.
By the way, I'm Doctor #6, played on Earth by Colin Baker.

*Editor's note 1998-Fred has now been reincarnated for several years. We wish him a long and happy lifetime!

With the establishing of The Grand Alliance there has been a lot of unusual activity in The Spirit Realm that has not occurred before.
Several years ago my wife and I became acquainted with the most popular rock group in The Spirit Realm called "Bach, Beethoven and Brahms Plus One," made up of Greek lead singer and guitarist Nikki, G, base guitarist from Italy, Matthew, keyboard and sax from England, and Christopher, Australian drummer and vocal backup. They do all the popular rock & roll classics plus many songs of their own like their tribute to Elvis called "Wikki Wack Wail," "We've Gotta Go And Save That Whale," "I'm In Love With My Postman," just to name a few.
A short time ago the incredible happened when this band of rock & rollers received an invitation from The Nazarene to do a Command Performance for Him. The boys, as they are often called, were delighted but totally perplexed as to what numbers they should perform, but finally settled on a list and the performance went very well and was received with good comments from The Nazarene and His followers. But it has been running through my mind for some time and I am sure others will ponder, also, in the same circumstances what songs would you have done? What do you feel would have been appropriate? I'm sure everyone would have their own list. But if you feel like sending yours in, go ahead, and we'll publish the most favored selections in a few months.
