Whenever I can, I like to visit the psychic fairs that pop up from time to time. It is always a journey into enlightenment, although not the kind I am promised. It is more an uplifting tale of just how vivid human fantasy and invention can be.
Feng Shui is an old Chinese form of geomancy, where we live in harmony with Mother Nature by rearranging physical objects around us. Rather randomly, it seems.
An investigation of a few of the many versions of the basic tool of Feng Shui
Being a skeptic means that you learn a lot about how people who believe in paranormal phenomena think. Rational thought is often a scarce commodity, and you will encounter more or less bizarre notions.
Famed psychic Sylvia Browne has done past life regressions for decades, literally thousands of them. Each and every one of these is claimed to be “”true”” and well documented. However, she will not allow anyone to investigate her collection of “”verified”” past lives. Those that can be verified, turn out to be fantasies.
Cell memory is based on the idea that whatever happens in our lives, each cell “records” it – spiritually, of course. Homeopaths have cherished this idea for a long time now, and people like Dean Radin and Gary Schwartz also use it to explain purported – but unsupported – claims of a “surviving” consciousness or spirit. Psychic Sylvia Browne takes it a few steps further.
The nurse from hell, Jolene believes anything. Literally.
Graham Bishop is a self-proclaimed “spiritual teacher, trance medium, trance healer and medium”. He is also one lousy cold reader.
A few disturbing consequences of being able to travel outside your body, transgressing time and space. Some consequences are fantastic, some are horrifying.
Just how important a name is, is not clear to most people. Fortunately, a society exists to tell you precisely how crucial it is you choose the right name for your child. The name of a person, according to the Kalabarian Philosophy, determines no less than your destiny, your “mental direction”, your personality, how happy you are, how you attract people, how successful you will be, etc.
A good, hard look at Sylvia Browne’s predictions for the next 100 years. It’s rather depressing how little imagination she has, given the fact that she is in the lucrative business of presenting fantasies as facts.
I spent one of the last evenings of September 2002 attending a lecture by Dean Radin, author of “The Conscious Universe”, on the Upper East Side, Manhattan, where he told about the Global Consciousness Project.
Famed psychic Sylvia Browne claims to be doing 15-20 past-life regressions each day, and members of her staff also do past-life regressions. It would take a small army doing nothing but indexing these regressions and later verifying them. Who does this gargantuan work?
