In the famous bell battle of North Carolina, bell chimerers were empowered to attack and eliminate the enemy, John Wilkes’ bell, who claimed power over all demons of the world. The North Carolina government under Governor Tracy M. Roberts called for an investigation into the accusations that the bell had been a talisman used by the citizens of the state to defeat an evil witch, which had been installed as a resident in the city of New Orleans. This bell was a crystal bell that, according to legend, could cure illness and which when broken was able to produce sound as great as that produced by a church bell. Roberts declared that the bell must be removed because it represented “evil and witchcraft.”
The bell was taken from New Orleans to the headquarters of the American Psychological Association in San Francisco, where the bell was damaged during shipping. There it was repaired and the process of restoration of the bell began. The bell has now been restored and is on display at the APA in San Francisco, California. Since the restoration of the APA has been involved in funding studies that will help lead to finding new ways to use the bells in drug addiction treatment programs.
The story of the bell in drug rehab and its connection to New Orleans and healing can be told in “Rehab: A History of the Bells of New Orleans,” written by Elizabeth Kubler Ross. In this book, you will learn about the Bells and the meaning of the bell itself and how that relates to both ancient Egypt and New Orleans today. Through this fascinating story, you will gain a greater understanding of what makes drug addled addicts break their habits. You will also see a correlation between the Bells and drug addiction treatment success stories. If you are an addict and have been struggling with substance abuse problems, this book will open your eyes to a possible cure for your addiction.
