SACRAMENTO, Calif. /Publishers Newswire/ — Just in time for Halloween, it’s a new but very different occult read. It took Philip Chabot 40 years to tell his amazing story, and it’s now available through and Chabot was an integral part of an American conspiracy, where the U.S. Government and the CIA took advantage of a select group of people who had psychic abilities in order to spy on other countries.

In his newly released book, “OPERATION BLUE LIGHT: My Secret Life Among Psychic Spies” (Cherubim Publishing, September 2008, ISBN 978-0-9816024-0-0; $26.95; 294 pages), Chabot finally divulges his frightening experiences as a Psychic Spy with the United States Intelligence. An unusual and compelling memoir, this is a true account of deception and subterfuge-a book unlike any other on the market today. Chabot shows that the use of psychics started much earlier than previously revealed, and he tells us of his secret relationship to the family of Chairman Mao.

Traditional methods of gathering intelligence include using satellites, intercepting communications and recruiting agents. However, now top secret documents have emerged revealing that the Ministry of Defense ran a covert project to recruit psychic spies during the Cold War in the hope of tracking down people and items of interest to the government and the military.

What exactly went on? Back in the 60’s, any contact with a Communist country was almost impossible. Chabot himself was recruited as a spy to discuss the Iron Curtain-the Cold War. You can well imagine the terror and drama. However, dealing with what was known as “Red China” was much worse-there was a secret and disturbing version of the story of The People’s Republic of China desperately reaching out through taking advantage of psychic spies and covering-up marriage arrangements. Surprisingly in fact, the author was involved with a marriage arrangement with Chairman Mao’s daughter. In OPERATION BLUE LIGHT: My Secret Life Among Psychic Spies, all of this is revealed. Chabot has taken the Iron Curtain and ripped it away to peek beyond it. Now, you have the chance to learn what really went on.

Moreover, we knew things in China were bad, but we could only guess at how nervous those in control of China really were. This story gives us a real idea of how much trouble those around Chairman Mao must have believed the country was in during the 60’s. The worsening conditions in China caused them to take extreme measures to protect some of the members of his family. Chabot’s story forces us to believe that the Peoples Republic of China’s official practice of rejecting any arranged marriages was ignored in an attempt to safeguard Chairman Mao’s family if control of the country started to fall apart.

Even more intriguing, according to Chabot, “The use of psychic spies may still be happening today. Most recently, by the 1990s, it was revealed that the Pentagon continued to employ a highly classified team of ‘psychic spies,’ who use a form of remote viewing to aid in the gathering of intelligence in foreign countries.”

OPERATION BLUE LIGHT: My Secret Life Among Psychic Spies, reveals the government’s never-ending fascination and involvement with “mental” technologies and their collusion with psychiatric types to master control of the human mind for their own purposes and schemes. For the very first time, we get a chance to see what they were doing in the 1960’s. Chabot gives us a look at abilities, techniques and practices never before revealed. It tells the story of how powerful and even overpowering the psychic abilities of some of the world’s intelligence agents had become. We also see for the first time how Chabot found a way past all the barriers of the Cold War-to actually speak to the girl he agreed to marry. The orchestrated effort by the intelligence community to develop the author’s psychic abilities also gave him a way around the Iron Curtains that were constructed by various state departments.
