CASSADAGA — Sunflowers, the universal symbol of those who believe that life continues after death and some people have the ability to communicate with the deceased, are sprinkled throughout this tiny hamlet.
The Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, a home to mediums and healers about 35 miles north of Orlando, is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, marking the evolution of a community on a “vortex of psychic energy” where the gifts of spiritualists can thrive and believers can worship in peace.
On Saturday, the camp will kick off a monthly series of celebrations, culminating with a masquerade ball in December, at the sanctuary for 78 residents immersed in the metaphysical world that draws curious visitors from around the world.
“Karma and destiny” brought Reverend Don Zanghi from Buffalo, N.Y., to the camp 28 years ago. He teaches a Sunday morning service, Lyceum, for anyone who wishes to learn about spiritualism.
“The whole idea of having a camp is because the energy is here, you’re surrounded by it all the time — you’re breathing it, you’re living it, you’re feeling it — it’s like going to school,” said Zanghi, a 70-year-old medium and healer.
The Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association began as a 35-acre winter haven in 1894 founded by George Colby, a trance medium from New York who was guided by a Native American spirit named “Seneca” to Central Florida.
It was designated as a historic district in 1991 and operates as a nonprofit organization under a board of trustees.
Dawn Medley, camp activity director, said visitors are welcome from sunup to sundown — even skeptics — and that spiritualism isn’t an evangelical religion.
“We demonstrate. We don’t go out and feel the need to have people come here and believe what we believe,” Medley said. “We really encourage free thinking — we want people to come to their own conclusion.”
Many residents offer services in their homes and apartments at an independently determined rate. Mediums and healers advertised on signs around the camp are labeled as “certified,” a distinction that applies only to members who have undergone training and a verification of experience and skills.
Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp
It’s been 125 years since George P. Colby, a trance medium from New York, traveled to Central Florida and set up camp in what later became known as the spiritualist community of Cassadaga, unofficially dubbed as the “psychic capitol of the world.” May 2, 2019.
Camp guidelines discourage the use of “gimmicky” tools such as pendulums and crystal balls.
“We’re going to give you evidence of who we’re connecting with – it could be could be a physical description, could be a shared memory, could be how they passed or something about their personality … any number of things,” Medley said. “And then we’ll give you the information they wish to bring.”
The long, curved pavement of Cassadaga Road serves as a physical divide between the camp and a cluster of businesses that also offer spiritual services but have a long-standing disagreement over the tools of the trade.[
“They’re just trying to separate themselves because they feel that we’re hokey,” said Varney Pearce, store manager for Purple Rose Trading Company, a third-generation family owned shop. The 119-year-old building with an attached haunted history museum sells “esoteric accessories” — crystals, stones and astrology charts.
“As far as tools go, I know readers that prefer tarot because it’s a visual representation of what they’re telling you,” Pearce said. “People will see the devil or death card and freak out but it can actually mean change or the death of a career into something new – it’s a good thing, something new. It’s all perspective.”
Although camp members don’t use tools, they do embrace technology such as cameras and voice recorders that document physical phenomenon.
Medley gives a nighttime tour of the camp — often accompanied by Gretel, one of several outdoor feline inhabitants — using flashlights, which spirits can employ to announce their presence.e
“When that light turns on, it’s something everybody sees,” she said.
Cassadaga, the camp and town immortalized in a Tom Petty song, has been known for decades as a quirky travel destination. It’s listed on RoadsideAmerica.com, dubbed as an online guide to “offbeat tourist attractions.”
Visitors are drawn to landmarks like Hotel Cassadaga, a reportedly haunted structure with “friendly spirits” that dates back to the 1920s. It was sold by the camp during the Great Depression and now operates under private ownership.
The camp recently created an elaborate outdoor fairy trail, in collaboration with the West Volusia Tourism Office, which feature 6-foot tall pastel butterfly wings that are already making the rounds on Instagram.[
At Saturday’s event, Volusia County Council member Barbara Girtman will read a proclamation and camp residents will unearth a time capsule that was buried during the 100-year mark.
The camp is also raising money for the upkeep of its seven historical buildings, including Colby Memorial Temple, to preserve its legacy into the next century.
“Death has always been scary for people and when they see proof that life continues on, it’s quite comforting and soothing,” Medley said. “There will always be generations looking for these answers.”

How do we know if what we know is real or true? In a recent forum I was invited to talk about this question, I used the controversial phenomenon of psychic surgery, which our local faith healers perform on patients, to provide answers.
I define psychic surgery as the process or the ability to open up the body of a patient using only the healer’s bare hands, take out diseased tissues, blood clots and even tumors, and close the incision without a trace of the operation at all. The entire process takes usually less than five minutes.
Because it defies all known and accepted laws of physics, biology, medical science and logic, psychic surgery is regarded as fraudulent or a product of trickery and deception.
The Department of Health does not recognize it as a legitimate form of therapy. The Philippine Medical Association completely ignores it. And the Catholic Church considers it the work of the devil.
But ordinary Filipinos, especially in the provinces, believe in it and patronize it.
There are only two countries in the world where psychic surgery is practiced: Brazil and the Philippines.
The difference is that Brazilian spiritual healers and psychic surgeons use knives, scissors and other instruments to open up the body of patients, and that Filipino healers use their bare hands. Most Western researchers and investigators believe the Brazilian healers more than our own. One cannot open up the body of a patient with bare hands, but it can be done with knives.
This is obvious, isn’t it? But is it? Remember that we are dealing here with a paranormal phenomenon which cannot be explained by mainstream materialistic science.
To use the principles, methodologies or paradigms of materialist science to explain nonphysical or paranormal phenomena is like using an umbrella as a parachute to jump from a tall building.
Science was meant to study or explain only physical things. It is very efficient and useful in doing this. Its methodologies are perfect and cannot be improved upon. But when used to explain nonphysical phenomena, it is almost useless.
When Western scientists tried to use their scientific tools and methodologies to study paranormal or spiritual phenomena, something almost always goes wrong.
For example, in the 1980s, when Japanese researcher Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama had three blood samples which a Filipino healer took from the same patient, and had these examined by three different laboratories in Japan, the results were inconsistent. The first two blood samples were of the same blood type as that of the patient, but the third sample was diagnosed to be the blood of a sheep. Now, sheep are not indigenous to the Philippines. So, where did that blood come from?
The other example is Dr. Lyall Watson, a biologist from South Africa (and author of the best-selling book “SuperNature”), who placed diseased tissue taken by a Filipino faith healer from a patient into a glass container with formaldehyde, sealed it and sent in to a laboratory in South Africa for analysis. When it reached South Africa, the glass container was empty, but the seal was intact. The specimen had vanished into thin air.
But sometimes, researchers are lucky. For example, when I had a problem with an enlarged prostate in 2002, I went to a radiologist who was a former student of mine. The ultrasound result showed an enlarged prostate gland.
Instead of going to a hospital to have it operated on, I went to a female faith healer and psychic surgeon in Makati whom I had observed many times before, and whom I considered to be genuine.
She performed psychic surgery using only her bare hands, after shaving the hair on that part of my anatomy and removing what looked like blackish tissue from inside. Blood oozed out as she pressed deep into my groin with her bare hands.
I felt the pressure of her hands, but there was no acute pain, as would be expected. She closed the incision and applied plasters. The whole psychic operation took about 30 minutes.
The next day I went back to the radiologist, who performed an ultrasound on me and found my prostate gland completely normal. “Like the prostate gland of a 17-year-old boy,” she said, smiling.
So, on at least that one occasion and several others where I had medical proof (before and after), these psychic surgeries, I believe, were genuine. I cannot say the same for others, but I came out with the conclusion that psychic surgeries are not completely fraudulent.
As Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard says, “There are two ways to be fooled: One is to believe what is not so. The other is to refuse to believe what is so.”
Regarding science and its current paradigms, I quote here the words of the genius inventor Nikola Tesla: “If science were to study nonphysical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than all the centuries of its existence.”
Clairvoyance literally means ‘clear vision.’ It is the ability to foresee the future with your innereye. For some, it comes in the form of seeing glimpses of the future that eventually happens in reality. On the other hand, for some, it is a strong, instinctive hunch that keeps niggling in the back of their heads. In fact, some gifted persons can even read people, their thoughts, and body language.
Clearly, it is an invaluable trait that can help you succeed and do well in life.
Am I Clairvoyant?
Before proceeding, naturally, the first doubt that you may have is whether you are indeed gifted or have you made certain predictions by fluke. Hence, if you are confused about whether or not you are clairvoyant, here are a few signs that may strengthen your belief:
Visual flashes that you may experience does not necessarily have to be dramatic like the kind you see in movies or TV shows. In fact, they can be very subtle. Some may witness visual clues in the form of light and colour, which may point towards a deeper spiritual meaning. According to BestPsychics.club, it could mean that you are interacting with the Universal Energy Field or Human Energy Field of your loved ones.
Visual flashes do not have to indicate actual visual scenes playing out before they happen. They can be in the form of coloured dots, floating orbs or shadows, visible aura, or maybe just a twinkle or a glitter perceived by the corners of your eyes.
Do you find yourself losing focus and drifting into daydreams effortlessly? Even though you are genuinely trying hard to pay attention to everything around you? Do you feel your consciousness slipping while subconsciousness takes over? It may be because of your clairvoyant abilities. It is a very common trait amongst those who are gifted.
Since clairvoyance primarily revolves around perception through sight, you are capable of dissociating from reality and entering a different plane. And that is highly possible even if you are visiting an imaginary world. Due to your special ability, you will require much more visual stimulation than others, making it easier for you to daydream easily.
Expert Problem Solver
A clairvoyant can see things from his or her mind’s eye. Therefore, they are exceptionally goodat solving visual puzzles and problems. They have an inherent understanding of space and how objects can fit. For them, the whole world is much like a puzzle that needs sorting and solving. This quality comes extremely naturally to them. They can step inside a room and tell you what furniture can go where. Or they can easily put together pieces of an expert level puzzle even if another person has been struggling with it for hours.
Appreciation of Beauty
Do you often find yourself staring and marveling at Mother Nature’s bounty? Do you spendhours going through home decor ideas or fine art paintings? You could even be a natural at taking stunning photographs! This could mean that you are probably clairvoyant.
Clairvoyance adds a layer of mindfulness towards their perception of the world around them. This, of course, primarily depends on how strong your visual senses are tied to your abilities. Either way, if you have an eye for beauty, most likely, it is your inner eye appreciating it.
Mental GPS is Terrific
Have you ever been lost and just have a siren go off in your head saying that you should head in a specific direction? Do you manage to get to new and unexplored places even without maps? If yes, then it simply means that you have access to a greater knowledge that others are deprived of having. It means that your instincts are strong to have a solid sense of direction. You may be capable of visualising pathways and directions with the help of your inner compass.
Envisioning Plans is Easy
Once again, the focus for clairvoyant individuals primarily lies with the visual stimulation received from the external world. They are blessed with a knack of visually knowing how things will pan out. Whether it is the interior decoration of a house or a surprise birthday party – they can easily envision the final outcome. If you find yourself accurately predicting such outcomes, it is strongly possible that you may be clairvoyant.
You Experience Vivid Dreams Frequently
Much like daydreaming and imagining, clairvoyants are capable of experiencing vivid dreams. Just like you see the real world differently, you also see dreams differently. This is because your gift of sight is highly active even when you are asleep.
You will have strong imagination coupled with attention to details and intricacies in your dreams. In fact, there may be times that you will find it hard to dissociate dreams from reality. While most times, such dreams are mere dreams, other times, it is strongly possible to have a vision that is about to come true.
5 Ways to Heighten Clairvoyance
Now that you know of the most common traits that may indicate that you are clairvoyant, you need to understand how to develop your skills even more. However, first of all, you need to know that if you don’t have any of the above-mentioned qualities does not necessarily mean that you are not clairvoyant. Similarly, just because you show one or more signs, does not fully indicate that you are clairvoyant.
Regardless, to be able to make good use of clairvoyance, you need to establish a strong relationship between your actual sight and inner sight. A well-developed clairvoyant ability will make it easier to perceive the things around you. Here are a few exercises that will help you heighten your gift of clairvoyance:
Any kind of memory practice is a great way to visualize things strongly. There are a number of memory games that you can make up to help you see clearer.
Some clairvoyants prefer to practice with flowers as they are earthy elements that help in grounding their powers. For this, you need to keep various flowers on a table. Pick one flower at a time. Then spend all your energy on knowing everything about the flower. Right from the colours to texture, and every minute detail. After you are done, visualise the flowers in your mind and write everything done in the most detailed way possible.
Another great way to jog your memory is through memorising Tarot Cards. It is already known for a fact that Tarot Cards can heighten your psychic abilities. Go through each card and memorise each symbol, colour, lines or waves. Then write about it or try and project it in apartner’s mind. If you can get your hands on two packs of Tarot Cards and play a game ofMemory, as you did when you were a child. Place the cards in a grid, memorize their positions and then turn them face-down. Now try to establish matches in pairs until all cards are over. Don’t have Tarot Cards? Even online Tarot Tools can do the trick!
Clairvoyance comes from your ability to visualise. Thus, you need to work on visualisation with your inner eye. You can practice visualising multitudes of scenarios.
It could be a vision of your trek through lush forests in a foreign land. Imagine the flora and fauna that you will see on the way. Or you could explore any historical monument and even go back in time while walking the corridors. You could think of something relaxing as sunbathing on a beach, or something highly stimulating like watching your favourite band perform live. If you are not looking for anything intricate or detailed, you can simply visualise numbers or flowers. Simply close your eyes and get visualising every little detail and every experience. In the event that you have problems focusing, you could also print out flashcards that you can stare at for 30 seconds to give you inspiration and to get you started.
Meditation is the best way to reset, restart, and fine-tune all your psychic abilities. Through meditation, you release vibrations that can make you more sensitive to all kinds of visual stimulation. The third chakra, present between the eyebrows is responsible for clairvoyance. And meditation can elevate and open the third eye chakra too.
]To begin meditating, be seated in a comfortable position. Close your eyes and start by takingdeep breaths. Think of a loved one and start imaging them in your mind’s eye. Recall every detail about them and every emotion associated with them. If that’s not your cup of tea, you cansimply visualise your third eye chakra as a vivid, purple galaxy that is spinning. Imagine it expanding, signifying the opening of the chakra, thereby heightening your clairvoyant abilities. Experiencing a tingling sensation between your eyebrows generally indicates that you are correctly practicing meditation.
Give Blind Reading a Try
Blind reading is an excellent way to unpack your clairvoyant abilities. It also helps you focus your intuitive energies on finding solutions to problems.
Start by sitting at a table with three blank cards. Think of a question for which you seek answers. Write down 3 different possibilities regarding the question. Shuffle the cards and place them face down on the table. Gently place your hands above the cards. Feel them and their energy. Stay relaxed as you figure out which card you gravitate towards. Keep it aside. Flip the cards and read the response of the one you had the greatest attraction towards. That would be the answer to your question or a solution to your problem.
Hence, a good practice while practicing clairvoyance includes dream journaling. Clairvoyants experience vivid dreams with psychic and spiritual guides leading the way into the spiritual world. Keep a diary or notepad and pen at your bedstand every night before you go to sleep. Ifyou don’t have a dedicated diary, you can keep some loose sheets instead. Focus on the question or problem for which you need a response. Keep thinking about it until you go off to sleep.
Upon waking up, enter all the details of your dreams in the journal. If you cannot remember the dream, try and recollect the thoughts or memories flooding your mind on waking up. It does notnecessarily have to be psychic in nature. If you haven’t found an answer, repeat the sameexercise for following nights until you receive the answer that you seek. Sometimes, the answer is not direct and you have to see the patterns to find out the answer.
If you are clairvoyant, then you have received a wonderful gift that will enrich your life in many ways. It may help you find love, success, and happiness at every step. In the beginning, it may be slightly difficult to trust your instincts or the messages that you receive from the spiritual world – and that’s completely normal. We are raised to believe more in the logical world than the spiritual kind. However, once you start opening your mind to the possibilities that open up on being clairvoyant, you will be capable of honing your psychic gift of sight. You need to trust your visions completely because your belief will fortify the guidance that you receive.
You can develop your own sets of exercises or connect with other clairvoyants to find out what really works for them. Try to keep the activities as relaxing as possible to alleviate all kinds of stresses.
Remember, the more time and effort you dedicate towards clairvoyance, the greater would be the rewards that you will reap.
Since ancient times, people have sought advice and counsel from psychics—or those claiming to be. But it’s only in the past century or so that psychics have been credited with solving seemingly unsolvable crimes like these.
The persistence of Ashley Howley
In 2004, 20-year-old Ashley Howley disappeared from the town of Columbus, Ohio. While the case went cold, Ashley, or rather, her spirit, was diligently trying to communicate with Kristy Robinett, a Michigan spiritual medium who spoke extensively with Reader’s Digest about helping law enforcement solve crimes like this one. Ashley’s spirit, which according to Robinett, needed time to figure out how to get her message across, eventually told Robinett she’d been murdered by her boyfriend and where her body could be found. In 2008, her body was found in the very spot she said it would be marked by a stick and her boyfriend was brought to justice. Howley’s case was solved, but to this day, these remain the 16 strangest unsolved mysteries of all time.
A map to the body of Julie Popovich
Robinett was visited by another young woman from Ohio in August of 2005. It was the spirit of 20-year-old Julie Popovich, a student at Ohio State University, who had disappeared earlier that month. Julie’s body was discovered three weeks later, but not before “Julie pushed her way through [the other spirits waiting to speak with Robinett] and asked me to draw a map, the map of where her body would be found,” as Robinett explains it.
The whereabouts of “Katie”
A troubled child, Katie, was living in a group home when she ran away. That’s when Robinett got a call from Katie’s parents. “Hearing the panic of Katie’s mom on the phone I knew I had to help and so I first tuned in to see if I sensed her spirit alive or gone,” Robinett recounts, but happily, she felt Katie was alive. She was. With Robinett’s help, law enforcement was able to locate Katie—before something terrible happened to her. (In part, because she was only 15 when she disappeared, Robinett asked that Reader’s Digest keep Katie’s last name and other identifying details confidential.)
The little girls lost
When two ten-year-old girls, Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman, disappeared from a family barbecue in Soham, England in August of 2002, the family sought the help of psychic, Dennis McKenzie. McKenzie set his powers to work, but the news was bad. He saw that the girls were dead and that a man and a woman, whom he was able to describe to law enforcement in great detail, were involved. McKenzie’s vision proved accurate, and the family has praised him, referring to him as the real deal.
The bridge to Richard Kelley
McKenzie solved the mystery of what happened to Richard Kelley, a 17-year-old from Limerick, Ireland when Richard’s mother sought his assistance in 2006. Unfortunately, the images McKenzie saw were of Richard’s body, with a concrete slab as the murder weapon, and a bridge nearby along with the words “Brigid” and “Bodyke.” In fact, Richard’s body was found in the lake, Lough Brigid, near Bodyke, County Clare. A concrete slab had been tied to each of his legs. Unlike Richard’s case, these 20 baffling forensics cases that stumped everyone remain unsolved.
What really happened to Melanie Uribe
One might wonder how psychics who see these vivid visions of grisly crimes don’t end up as suspects, themselves. Well, sometimes they do. That’s what happened in 1981 when clairvoyant Etta Smith, had a vision involving a woman, Melanie Uribe, who had recently gone missing. So strong was her vision, she went looking for the body herself…and found it. Smith was arrested and charged with murder but was released after the real killer confessed.
The body of Mary Coussett
In 1983, Illinois law enforcement went so far as to publicly thank the psychic who had helped them find the body of 27-year-old Mary Cousset. A local psychic Greta Alexander had provided 22 clues that police used to find Mary’s skeletal remains (including the condition of the body and which police officer would find the body), which in turn led to the arrest of Mary’s boyfriend. Find out the strangest unsolved mysteries from each state.
The deaths of Maria Scott and her murderer
The stabbing murder of Maria Scott, 27, was also solved with help from a psychic, Debbie Malone, who was contacted by an investigator four years after the Maria case went cold. Leading police to a remote cabin where she had “seen” Maria’s murder, Malone also found the murder weapon, a knife, lodged in a drainpipe. Malone reported having felt the murderer pass through her body as if he too was dead. In fact, the murderer had committed suicide four years earlier.
When 16-year-old Patricia List didn’t show up for school in November 1971, her teacher reported her missing. Police went to List’s New Jersey house and found the entire family dead, except for the patriarch, John, who’d vanished, leaving behind a note of confession. List somehow eluded law enforcement for nearly two decades before Detective Jeffrey Hummel, who worked the case, sought the assistance of psychic Elizabeth Lerner. Lerner saw a vision of List with a new woman in Virginia, which is where List was eventually found and brought to justice.
The fate of Paula Brown
In 1996, the fiancé of Paula Brown, a missing woman from Sydney, Australia, contacted Sydney-based psychic, Philippe Durant. Using hair belonging to Paula, Durant was able to locate her body in Port Botany, New South Wales. Although Paula’s body was actually discovered by a truck driver, a police spokesperson remarked that Durant has been “uncannily accurate,” just like these 10 crazy predictions that actually came true.
The disappearance of Nell Cropsey
Way back in 1901, when 19-year-old Nell Cropsey disappeared somewhere near her home in North Carolina, it took the intervention of a psychic, Snell Newman, to crack the case. Newman had a vision of Nell’s boyfriend killing Nell by sedating her with chloroform and then drowning her in a well. Her body was recovered in a river connected to that very well. The boyfriend was brought to justice.
The one that took 30 years to solve
A woman named Penny Surra disappeared from Connecticut in 1971. Stymied by a lack of clues, the police brought in psychic Pascarella Downey. Downey had a vision of Penny’s murder by a mechanic who smelled like oil and was wearing a nametag with the letter “E,” but told the police that the murderer would not be found anytime soon. It took 30 years, but eventually, a mechanic named Edward Grant was connected to the crime and brought to justice. Tempted to seek out help from the other world for yourself? You must consider these 10 things before giving a psychic a chance.
Specifically, after referencing Henry’s reading of Matt Lauer, the 41-year-old comedian revealed he struggled to believe that the Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry star didn’t use Google beforehand.
However, as Tyler exclusively noted to Rancic and Kennedy, he doesn’t know who he is reading until he is meeting with the client in person.
“It’s actually really why I never want to know where I’m going or who I’m reading and why I put such an emphasis on information that can’t be googled,” the E! personality defended. “In reading celebrities, public figures, there lives are on Google! So, obviously, there’s information about them.
Regardless, Henry relayed that his famous clients “aren’t tearing up” about generic information. Rather, they’re “tearing up and crying because they’re hearing information that’s emotional, that’s validating something to them, that they’ve not heard elsewhere.”Rancic, who has appeared onHollywood Medium, supported this claim by recalling an eerily specific memory from her childhood—a memory that she didn’t even recall until her mother confirmed it to be true.
“There’s no way you could Google that,” G expressed. “I didn’t remember the memory.”
Furthermore, the reading Rancic participated in with Tyler ahead of the sit down had information that she and husband Bill Rancic have yet to share with anyone.
Eager to know what Tyler shared with Giuliana? For Tyler’s message for the mother of one and so much more, be sure to take a look at the clip above!
You know, I watched this and thought I’d share it here, along with sharing my opinion about such things.
Being a psychic I know that I too can be wrong. Sometimes, I’m a great deal wrong. BUT… if I get something about something as important as a missing person or a missing child I usually try to deliver that message even if not asked to. I figure if I’m not charging anyone one cent for my two cents worth, I can’t see where it’s labeled “predatory”.
In the past I’ve helped a few clients and friends find missing persons, some alive and some not. Yet I’ve also been wrong, or perhaps slightly off, who’s to say? If you don’t find them how can we possibly know if I was absolutely wrong or just missed the spot by a few feet or a few miles?
Thing is, I’ve never charged one cent for doing any of it, in spite of the fact that I absolutely hate doing it. Reason I hate doing it is two-fold:
1) I abhor when the outcome is bleak. I’d rather not know, see, or feel any of what the victim, the families, the perpetrator, or even me as a person feels about such things;
2) It consumes me, especially when I’m looking for a recently missing person/child. I know all-too-well how critical it is to find them if we’re to have any chance of their being unharmed. So… I obsess over it. I obsess so thoroughly that even my dreams are filled with clues until such time there’s a resolution. There really is no rest for me personally when the situation is so dire.
Not to mention we’re actually putting ourselves in harm’s way when we do step up and out of the shadows. I mean if someone killed, kidnapped, or otherwise harmed another human, and they find out we might be able to finger-point, what keeps us safe?
So no, psychics aren’t perfect. We don’t know everything about any one thing. But sometimes we do know some things. Sometimes we sense things. We see things. We feel things. So what are we to do? Remain silent so we aren’t accused of being predators? Yes, I realize there are people out there who aren’t psychic who claim to be under such circumstances. Shame on them. Still, if the average Joe Blow citizen is encouraged to report “any little thing they may have seen, even if they don’t feel it matters”, why aren’t we given the same right? I don’t know. Doesn’t make much sense to me.
I no longer work on such cases because of all of the above reasons. But please get it straight, many of us are only trying to help. In my opinion that deserves appreciation not consternation.
Any way, those are my two cents worth about a topic that, quite frankly, insulted me.
Hollywood’s most sought-after clairvoyant, Tyler Henry, returns to E! Entertainment on Monday night with a brand new season of “Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry”.In its fourth season, Henry will be doing readings for celebrities like Sofia Vergara, Rebel Wilson, Howie Mandel, Karamo Brown, Carson Kressley, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Anne Heche, Jill Zarin, Kenya Moore and more.
“Since the show started it’s been an amazing 200 readings. You never know what’s going to happen during the readings. What I’ve noticed throughout the seasons is that people are curious to know what the reading entails and others are looking for validation, and this is what they get from their loved ones who work via me,” said Henry.
He said a lot of the time people doubt his psychic abilities – but are pleasantly surprised or really shocked at their readings.
“A lot of doubt runs through people’s minds before the readings – but once they sit down with me a lot of that doubt is cleared. Actress Sofia Vergara didn’t believe me and her reading was the one that stood out for me. Her brother was murdered and his messages came through – and there was a moment where the energy changed, and her emotions released because he sent me messages that no one else could have known – she was shocked,” Henry said.
Henry’s ability to receive messages from the dead started when he was just 10 years old and he had a premonition about his grandmother’s death.
“I told my mother about the premonition and just hours later my mom got a call to say that my gran had died. I didn’t understand what it meant at the time, and although my mother knew we never talked about it again for years. Then it started happening more regularly, it was like I had to come out of the psychic closet,” laughed Henry.
He said his most shocking reading was with “How I Met Your Mother” actor Alan Thicke.
“I warned the actor about the health of his heart, a message came through to me to tell him to get his heart checked – and then just months later he died,” he said.
When delivering messages, Henry said he was always careful about the way he communicated the messages that come through.
“Some are really straightforward so I try to be as sensitive as I can to the client and to their privacy. Sometimes they are uncomfortable with some of the reading airing and so we give them some control over the episode,” he said.
Henry said this season would be really exciting.
“We have an amazing season coming up and the celebrities we’ve featured have really interesting stories. This season I also do a brain scan and the result is featured – viewers shouldn’t miss this. It is shocking,” he said.
Season 4 of “Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry” airs on E! (DStv channel 124) at 8pm on Monday.
Crystals and gem stones are a great tool of every Tarot reader or spiritualist because they help us not only get centered, but they also raise our vibration. They are natural conductors of energy. They will hold the intention you have when handling them, so remember to have the best and highest intentions when you use them. Crystals will help you concentrate and communicate with your intuition. You can always keep them on your desk, with your Tarot cards (wherever you store them), in your pocket, your purse, or just about anywhere. Before you start a Tarot reading, make sure you have at least one of your crystals right in front of you so you can see it and touch it. Seeing the stone in front of you will have a reassuring effect; moreover, the crystal is a natural “antenna” that will help you work with your psychic energy. You will know you can always count on its great vibrational properties.
There are certain stones best used before and during a reading, and certain stones best used after the Tarot reading. (I will talk about the crystal best used after the Tarot reading next week, so stay tuned.) I will keep it simple by listing only a few from each category.
CRYSTALS BEST USED BEFORE AND DURING THE TATOR READING
CLEAR QUARTZ AMETHYST CITRINE BLUE KYANITE
I consider clear quartz the most powerful vibration elevator of all crystals. It’s the James Bond of crystals. It has amazing energy, skills, and it never dies. LOL It will help you get open and ready to receive intuitive messages. It opens and cleanses not only your crown chakra which is responsible for your ability to communicate with the spirit world, but also has a power to cleanse your aura of all the energy debris. It helps all your chakras get clean and open. It amplifies the energy level of your natural intuitive abilities as well as the crystals next to i
It is a super conductor and every Tarot reader should own one. The bigger, the better. I have two natural clusters of clear quartz on my Tarot desk. One is big and heavy and I don’t move it a lot and the other one is small. The small one, I hold it during my meditation before each reading or I put it on top of my deck to cleanse it. I can actually feel its energy vibrating in my hand as I hold it.
Clear quartz is truly an amazing stone. It looks boring, but the power it holds is undeniable!
Amethyst is another powerful stone that helps open and cleanse your chakras. More specifically, amethyst is great for your crown chakra and third eye chakra (clairvoyance).
It will help you quiet your mind so you can receive messages from the spirit world. Your clairvoyance will be stronger and clearer.
Its color purple represents spiritual growth and that’s exactly what this stone will help you with. It also protects you during the reading. Its energy is very high and you cannot go wrong if you use it.
Blue Kyanite is a beautiful stone of a light blue color. It’s best used for channeling because it directs the psychic energy.
As its color suggests, Blue Kyanite is excellent to use for Throat Chakra. If you are learning to communicate with deceased loved ones, for example, it would be extremely beneficial for you to have this stone at your disposal.
Also, if your Tarot or psychic readings could use some improvement in expressing the messages from the spirit world, this crystal would help your readings to become more concise and detailed. Blue Kyanite is also a great stone for Third-Eye Chakra because it helps us pull high-vibrational energy from the spirit world to be processed as visions. Blue Kyanite assists us with lucid dreaming and astral traveling (all a part of clairvoyance).
All in all, these four crystals are great to have. Of course, in time, you will probably get more variety of crystals, but these are the ones every beginner Tarot reader or spiritualist should have. They are affordable and very helpful on your path to using your psychic abilities to the fullest. If you are struggling financially and can’t have all four crystals, make sure you have at least a clear quartz. You can also read my article about the crystals best used after the Tarot reading.
