Dr. James Martin Peebles (1822-1922) was an American spiritualist and Universalist minister who believed that he received inspiration and spiritual guidance from a ‘band of angels,’ as he put it.
Some of these alleged guides were famous characters, such as Mozart, the sister of Louis XVI of France and Chief Powhatan, father of Pocahontas.
Other guides were less famous, such as John W. Leonard, a deceased Scottish clergyman.
Peebles traveled to India several times with Col. Henry Steel Olcott, the co-founder of Theosophy.
Today, Linda Pendleton and others claim to channel messages from Dr. Peebles.
His alleged message to humanity is consistent with much New Age channeling–that is, universal love, cooperation, and the need to overcome the illusion of separation among individuals and nations.
Dr. Peebles, himself, lived three days short of 100 years.
