Are you convinced of an afterlife or do you ever doubt this. I ask because there are some researchers who have put forward the theory that what a
medium does is actually a highly complex form of telepathy whereby they psychically tap into the mind of the reader and subconsciously dramatise the
feelings and impressions they recieve to create what would seem to be an existing entity rather than a mere memory of that person. there are also some
within the field of the paranormal who believe all this is the work of 'trickster' entities who masquerade as the deceased in order to decieve
humanity (for what ends I can't say). This trickster theory also applies to many other fields of the paranormal including UFOlogy, mystic/religious
Please understand I'm not asking these questions to be confrontational or contraversial (spiritualism is a philosophy I believe to be a very valid
and intelligent take on the meaning of life etc). I am just curious as to what opinions a medium would have on these things.
You describe the theory of a medium tapping into another person and make impressions of the decesed person. What you are talking about is on a
psychic leval and yes this is true, you can READ A PERSON by feeling thier aura and tapping into that persons moods and pick up all sorts of
The difference with proof of the after life is EXACTLY THAT "PROOF" of survival spiritualits call it.
Reading a person on a psychic leval has its limitations but when spirit say, have a look at the old suitcase tucked under the bed, there is a little
slit in it where i cut it with a knife, in there you will find a photograph of your real blood farther. That is where the underlying differance
The person you are reading did not know it was there so how can you pick up on that on a psychic level: You can not to that degree.
I am a studant of Parasychology and CG Jung dreamt his departed friend had taken him to his home and showed him 5 old red books on the shelf.
One of the books ironicaly was titled "THE LEGACY OF THE DEAD". The next day out of curiosity on waking from the dream he went to his friends house
and there exctly where his friend a shown him in his dream, was the location of 5 red books!
Scientits are working very hard to get to the bottom of TRUE MEDIUMSHIP but take it from me, they will never do it. One day they will have to face
the harsh reality that there is an afterlife. Some scientists have already come to terms with such fact and have accepted it. They can dig and dig
and dig for as long as it takes but there is way too much out there to prove it is a reality.
Yes some mediums are fruadulant and charge the earth rendering the rest of us with a bad name. Thousands of people have recieved personal proof which
they hold to thier heart. If it isn't right, you know because your instincts will tell you so, you just have to listen, that way you can sort out
the genuine with the fake!
As for the TRICKSTER yes there are all sorts of paranioia or religions trying to condition it's followers using fear. Something humans have been
very good at since the bible came along. I have heard it all, "its really the devil tempting you by trickery" "Its Aliens and they have evil
intentions don't listen to them" SCARE MONGERING another words.
They simpliy fear what they don't understand because they relise there is more to life than just humans and our little globe. There is the realms of
paranormal to contend with also, those of us lucky or unlucky to come face to face with it anyway! It is too much for some people quite
Hope this is a help, i don't blame you you wanting to hear it from a mediums point of veiw! You don't have to belive me of course you have the
right to make up your own mind. Too much has happened to me personally to deny the spirit world.
I have a thought for you! Have you thought about a medium having a visitation and messages without a third person to read for? When you are told
things you can not possibly know, how else do you explain it.
There are some people with mental illness granted but what of those people in high proffessions, intelligent people with no track record of mental
illness. A medium doensn't need a third person always.
Going back to the subject of Aliens, yes some entities are alien and manifest the same way our loved ones have. The being I have encountered have come
in love, light and truth, nothing negative gets through my door, my spirit guides and loved ones who i trust very much would not allow it!
I was very surprised when my freind Trevor introduced me to a being called Kootie who was not hiuman. He is a kind soul. Humans are not the only
souls in the universe and it would be ignorant to think it so in my humble opinion.
Take care XX
