Carla L. Rueckert
Carla L. Rueckert-McCarty was born on July 16, 1943 in Lake Forest, Illinois. She completed her Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature at the University of Louisville in 1966, and earned her Master’s Degree in Library Service in 1971. She served as librarian and bibliographer to college and school libraries for six years.
Carla was a meditator with the group Don started in early 1962, and became partners with Don in 1968. In 1970, she turned full-time to assisting Don with his research and together they formed L/L Research. 1974, she began channeling and continued unceasingly in that effort until she was stopped in 2011 by a spinal fusion surgery.
In addition to channeling, she read and abstracted books and periodicals, and did correspondence and writing for Don. As a result of their work together in investigating UFO contacts and abductions they published Secrets of the UFO in 1977. However, the first book that they wrote as soon as they got together in 1968 was The Crucifixion of Esmerelda Sweeetwater, which was not published until 1986. She wrote A Channeling Handbook in 1987, A Wanderer’s Handbook in 2001, channeled A Book of Days: Channelings From the Holy Spirit in 2007, Living the Law of One 101: The Choice in 2009, co-channeled The Aaron/Q’uo Dialogues with Barbara Brodsky in 2011, and had her book of poetry, The Poetry of Carla Lisbeth Rueckert, published in 2012.
During four of those thirty-seven years of channeling (1981–1984) Carla served as the instrument for the Ra contact, which would first be published as the Law of One books.
On May 30, 1987, she married Jim McCarty and together they continued the mission of L/L Research with Carla at its helm. Carla passed into larger life on April 1, 2015.
Carla L. Rueckert, beloved co-founder of and fearless channel for L/L Research, has made her journey home.
