Story Behind The MATTHEW BOOKS
EVENING OF APRIL 17, 1980,
Suzanne (Suzy) Ward was packing for her next day's business trip
when she received the call from Panama that changed her life:
Her 17-year-old son Matthew had died after a vehicle crash that
loss of a child has such an immeasurable impact upon the family
that Suzy's preoccupation with Matthew's death would not be considered
quite unusual. The direction she took in trying to cope with her
grief, however, might be considered that. She called a medium
with whom she had become friendly three years before, when they
had lived in the same city, and asked about her son. The medium
told her that he was in "deep rest"; she would receive
an unmistakable sign when he was ready to send her a message,
and when that time came, she would be led to a trustworthy medium.
SIGN CAME ALMOST NINE MONTHS LATER
in her first dream about Matthew since his death, and in the months
that followed, she learned first of a medium in Virginia, then
one in Maryland, and later another, in Delaware. None of them
knew each other and none asked Suzy anything except her son's
name. Yet all accurately described Matthew's physical appearance
and personality; they told her the cause of his death and the
ease of his transition. They talked about his new interests and
activities, sometimes with a progress report on educational pursuits
or piano lessons. And they gave her explicit information about
her own life, even details that she alone knew. They could tell
her all of these things because they were merely passing on to
her what Matthew was telling them -- the love between him and
his mother was the inseparable bond that enabled him to be aware
of her comings and goings.
Matthew also told all of those who spoke for him that when the
time was right, he and his mother would communicate directly.
But even when that same assurance came from a medium Suzy met
later, after a move to California, she could not help but doubt
that Matthew ever would talk with her directly. Why would such
a unique gift -- in her mind, telepathic communication was that
-- come to such an unremarkable person as she? To someone with
no aptitude for anything extrasensory, no training in anything
"New Age," and no knowledge of ancient spiritual beliefs;
to someone who long ago had abandoned 35 years of religious upbringing
because it never had been spiritually fulfilling?
BUT IT DID HAPPEN! It was early February
1994, almost 14 years after Matthew's death, when he started speaking
to his mother. It was not simply her longing for this moment that
created it -- something definitely extraordinary was happening!
For a while, each morning as Suzy recorded her and Matthew's conversations
at the computer, along with feeling elated by this glorious development,
she struggled with the thought that perhaps some bizarre part
of her mind was emerging. Soon, though, she realized that her
imagination could not possibly produce the astounding information
she was receiving from her son and, by now, the entities whom
he introduced to her.
wasn't long before Matthew started talking about the books she
was meant to prepare from their transmissions. He told his
mother that her profession as journalist was not by chance; it
was experience she needed so that, later on, she could properly
work with the information he and the others would be giving her.
But the huge task of reviewing, indexing, integrating and organizing
months of daily messages into some logical order was a challenge
she didn't care to accept, and she kept ignoring her son's urging
her to "start the book."
HE TOLD HER THAT HER PRIMARY MISSION
of this lifetime was to publish that information about life beyond
Earth and the celestial advice and guidance urgently needed during
this era of unprecedented planetary changes. Finally, he answered
her question about why he had died at such a young age: He had
to, so he could send her that information.
thus began The MATTHEW BOOKS.
