Blair Atherton, now retired, was a research scientist, university professor, and administrator. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Anatomy at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He then went on to do research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and to teach and do research at Northwestern University Medical School. Upon moving to Florida, he left the lab and switched to the field of institutional research.
Raised as a Catholic, he had a strong belief in God, but he was unaware of the existence of a world of spirits who could actually interact with those in the physical world. As a scientist, he relied on measurement and direct evidence. Imagine his surprise and confusion when he was touched by something invisible that defies measurement, but whose presence was nonetheless very palpable and engaging.
The spirits had come to let him know that it was time to start using his God-given gift of healing. He was astonished to learn that he was an instrument through which spiritual healing could be transmitted to those in need. You can imagine how humbling it was to find that he could in fact bring healing to others with the aid of his spirit helpers.
How frustrating it was to try to convince others that his experiences were real and that the spirit world not only exists, but that spirits want to help us become more compassionate and loving beings. As he began to chronicle his experiences, he was met with many inspirations concerning how we are meant to live our lives. Through these inspirations, he began to understand for the first time his own spirituality and what it means to be a spiritual person. He was compelled to share this knowledge with the world in his book Building a Bridge Between Two Worlds: Living the Life of Spirit.
