The British journalist Ruth Brandon published the book The Spiritualists (1983) which exposed the fraud of the Victorian mediums. The book received positive reviews and has been influential to skeptics of spiritualism. The British apport medium Paul McElhoney was exposed as a fraud during a séance in Osset, Yorkshire in 1983. The tape recorder that McElhoney took to his séances was investigated and a black tape was discovered bound around the battery compartment and inside carnation flowers were found as well as a key-ring torch and other objects.
A very large part is played by fraud in spiritualistic practices, both in the physical and psychical, or automatic, phenomena, but especially in the former. The frequency with which mediums have been convicted of fraud has, indeed, induced many people to abandon the study of psychical research, judging the whole bulk of the phenomena to be fraudulently produced.
Human beings have been seeking answers to these questions throughout recorded history. Some of their answers are based on faith; some on scientific data; some on fantasy. But a few answers, very few, are based on the actual experience of tapping in to a realm beyond this physical world, where we can speak directly with energies we call "spirits," and, more important, where we can connect directly with the highest level of universal and infinite love, wisdom, and light that we call God.
“Hi Denise I just wanted to send you a follow up email. After having had an opportunity to listen to our recorded session many times, I wanted to let you know that several items that you discussed with me have become clearer now. There were so many references that would have applied to several people in my family that I could not make the exact connection, but have since put the pieces together. Its interesting how some of the items that you conveyed to me didn't really register at the time of the reading, but are so very clear now....“
Psychic power is the ability to know something without any logical reason. This is what we call our 'sixth sense' or extra sensory perception; it is where energy is channelled through the third eye or brow chakra. We were all born with a heightened sense of intuition which acts as a precursor to or the beginning of developing our psychic abilities. Psychics can help individuals to find clarity in all kinds of situations.
Hi Karee! I just had to drop you a note because you really helped out two of my friends this past month or so. My mom, brother, boyfriend, cousin and I have all had life altering readings with you in the past, so I guess I'm not surprised anymore. One of my friends had her mind put at ease regarding her mother, especially hearing that heaven is like a "picnic" to answer a question secretly sent from her son. I recommended she speak with you but also I just found out another friend of 25 years, went to you randomly off YELP and was able to connect with her grandfather she had never met. You identified gold/emerald cuff link ear rings she had in her purse. It makes my heart smile that you are able to give people in pain some peace. So basically, I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your gift and for being you.

Psychologists and researchers who studied Pearl Curran's automatic writings in the 1930s came to the conclusion Patience Worth was a fictitious creation of Curran.

The "spirit" thumbprint that Valiantine claimed belonged to Arthur Conan Doyle was revealed to be the print of his big toe on his right foot. It was also revealed that Valiantine made some of the prints with his elbow.
to tune in. Think of it as surfing for radio stations using a dial. The prayer works hand in hand with the energy. The data in the Akashic Information will help us understand our past, immediate present, and future. By accessing the Akashic data, we establish and discharge something that we have now designed, that has grown to be a block to our existing realization of our oneness with God.
