In his youth, Keith was an amazing clairvoyant, and in the late sixty's he began to "channel" St. Germain, a practice that he did until his death in 1999. He set up the Aquarian Foundation to support his work, and Ellen was one of his earliest supporters-both financially and spiritually. So it was no surprise to me when I first met Ellen at her beach house in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina that she would have in her possession some of the gems and crystals that Keith claimed were apported from his mouth, ears, and eyes. Keith believed that these treasures were part of a new "communion" with the spiritual world, and his followers, like Ellen, held them with deep reverence.
A mutual friend, Joanne Devaughn, introduced me to Ellen in the early seventies when I was stationed at Fort Bragg working for the Army Security Agency. They were both intrigued by his teachings which are still somewhat secret and quite developed, much like another spiritualists I would meet during this time through Ellen-Elizabeth Clare Prophet of the Summit Lighthouse.
When we met, Ellen was in her seventies. She was incredibly dynamic and formidable in her pursuits of spirituality, and was clairvoyant to a degree, which was easy for me to recognize having been clairvoyant since my birth. She studied everything-from Steiner to Blavatsky-so we had much to discuss. But as hard as I tried to help her get out of her materialistic thinking of spirituality, she was drawn to people like Keith Rhinehart and Mark Prophet who could make things manifest from the thin air into the physical world. Ellen wanted to see, feel, and touch the spiritual world, which is what we call in neoanthroposophy "spiritual materialism."
