Are Psychic Powers Real?

Real is relative to what we perceive as real. As the saying goes “Perception is reality.” So what our minds perceive to be fact will be considered fact. The answer to the question on whether psychics are real or not varies depending on who you speak with. While millions of people consult with and believe in psychics, there are millions that do not. How can millions of people be wrong? How can millions of people be right? It is a matter of personal belief. If these abilities are not real, there are certainly many institutes studying psychics and testing their gifts. A psychic has the burden of proof to prove to someone that what he or she is saying is accurate.

Yet, if psychic powers are not real, why is there such an immense amount of research, energy, and resources that go into validating or disproving these abilities? Every year at various facilities, an extensive amount of research takes place. New psychics are constantly emerging and skeptics are quick to shoot down their claims. Critics feel that most self-proclaimed psychics are charlatans preying on the innocent for financial gain. Believers feel that psychics are given their gift to help people by providing invaluable insight and guidance. These believers of psychic abilities speak from personal experience or evidence that they have come across. It is hard to deny that there are various documented cases of successful psychics.

The Case For Psychic Abilities

People that are believers typically base their beliefs on personal experience, personal accounts from others in their circle, or other “credible” evidence that is provided through television, newspapers, and other media outlets. It is fair to say that there are numerous documented cases and accounts in which clairvoyance seems to have played a role. A prime example is Edgar Cayce; there is evidence from the virtually thousands of readings that he did through the years. On seven rare occasions, he allegedly prophesied things that would not happen until many years later, and in many other cases, people believed what he was telling them. The issue with some of these documented stories is that scientists cannot validate psychic powers by the “stories” and “believed accounts” of such acts.

Many people listen when the government says something. There is some sort of validity and truth when it comes from the government. This is true of the time when the CIA and U.S. Government launched a remote viewing project called Star Gate. Remote viewing is considered an ability of a person to gather information on a remote target that is hidden from the physical perception of the viewer and separated from the viewer at some distance. Apparently, the U.S. began this investigative program in response to Russia running similar testing on psychic phenomena. Over the course of a twenty year period, nearly $20 million was invested in Star Gate and its activities. The goal was to use these remote viewers to gain the upper hand in military combat and other missions. There were approximately forty who participated in the program over the years and nearly twenty-three of them were remote viewers. In the 1980s when this program was a high point, there were about seven full-time remote viewers. It is reported that three psychics worked in Fort Meade from 1990 – 1995.

The program worked on hundreds of intelligence collection projects that included thousands of remote viewing sessions. Highly noted successes were referred to as “eight martini” results. This was because the remote viewing data was so startling that all involved had to go out and drink eight martinis just to make sense of it all. There were various successes, but perhaps the most successful was Joe McMoneagle, who left Star Gate with a merit award for providing information on one hundred and fifty targets.

In 1978, he was recruited into the secret psychic spy unit of the government program. The program was basically designed to develop an intelligence operation group that used remote viewing. McMoneagle worked with the unit until he retired in 1984. After retirement, he was hired by Cognitive Sciences Laboratory, which was the company responsible for the research and development side of the Star Gate project. He worked in the capacities of both a remote viewer and research assistant. He has also written two books about remote viewing, Mind Trek (1993) and The Ultimate Time Machine (1998).

Today, more popular psychic mediums such as John Edward and Sylvia Browne continue to astound their clients with amazing accuracy and messages from beyond. John Edward underwent a battery of tests with Dr. Gary Schwartz and was deemed a truthful and authentic psychic medium. However, John Edward, as well as Dr. Schwartz, still receive criticism on this matter. In their opinions, what more needs to be tested? What more needs to be done before the skeptics will give them one ounce of the benefit of the doubt? For believers, it is a faith- based belief.

On the lighter side of things, there are also reports of psychic pets. That’s right: cats,
dogs, birds, and other furry friends! A biologist named Rupert Sheldrake has studied one bird in particular: a parrot named N’kisi. Apparently, this playful parrot has psychic abilities. You can read more about this paranormal parrot at

The Mystery of Psychics Past

It is hard to pinpoint the exact time and documented experiences of the first known psychic or psychics. In Greek mythology, there are stories of Pythia, who was a priestess that served Apollo. She was a powerful woman in a male dominated world who had the power of prophecy. This would lead us to believe that psychic ability goes back to ancient times. Historically, Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce come up frequentl when researching psychics from the past.

Nostradamus is still quite a controversial figure. In light of this and the complexity of his predictions, we will only touch lightly on some facts and events of his life. Critics believe that his infamous quatrains have been grossly misinterpreted, while others believe he is the greatest prophet/psychic of all time. After the attacks of September 11, 2001, Nostradamus was the most highly searched term on Google’s website. This is evidence of the effect his prophecies still hold today. In 1550, Nostradamus wrote his first almanac, and it was considered highly successful. He continued to write almanacs until the time of his passing in 1566 at the age of sixty-two.

Even today, Nostradamus is the subject of websites, popular cultures, and blogs on the subject. His quatrains and bold predictions of what was to come in the centuries beyond his passing have always amazed and intrigued believers and critics alike. As research and scientific studies continue on these prophecies, he will continue to live on.

Edgar Cayce was known as the “sleeping prophet” for his ability to put himself in a sleep like state and foretell future events. In 1931, he founded The Association for Research and Enlightenment. The purpose of this not-for-profit organization was to study the areas of transpersonal subjects. Edgar Cayce is credited with predicting the stock market crash of 1929 as well as the six other major events listed below.
• World War II
• The Shifting of the Earth’s Poles
• Convergence of Communications Companies
• Community of People Called the Essenes
• Blood as a Diagnostic Tool
• La Niña and El Niño Effect

Nostradamus on the Assassination of President Kennedy

I took a great deal of time and went through many of the quatrains of Nostradamus over the last few days and found that there were far too confusing for me to make any sense of them or offer any intelligent response to what they mean. I have read through his prophecies before and always found it very difficult and admire those who can break it down into terms that we can understand.

The following is the only one that made any sense to me.
In a prophecy indexed 1 Q26, Nostradamus in 1555 wrote:
The great man will be struck down in the day by a thunderbolt,
The evil deed predicted by the bearer of a petition
According to the prediction another falls at night time.
Conflict in Reims, London, and pestilence in Tuscany.

President John Kennedy was shot shortly after twelve noon 45 years ago in Dallas Texas, on 22 November 1963. In Nostradamus day guns had not been invented so it makes sense that he would see it as a thunderbolt. Senator Robert Kennedy was assassinated a few minutes after 1 A.M., moments after his victory speech in the 1968 presidential primary. Jeane Dixon, one of the foremost prophets of modern times, earned international notoriety for predicting JFK’s assassination as early as 1956. The last month before he was killed she repeatedly tried to get the message to him to be careful that he was about to be assassinated. I believe the bearer of the petition was Ms. Dixon. Nostradamus may have chronicled her unsuccessful attempt to forewarn the president, and later, Senator Kennedy, who was her friend. The last line dates RFK’s murder through events occurring around that time: student riots in France and London during 1968-9, (Reims is a another term used for France) and the 1966 Florence flood, when authorities feared that pestilence in Tuscany would follow the disaster.

Edgar Cayce on Blood as a Diagnostic Tool.

Edgar Cayce: “… For, as is seen, there is no condition existent in a body that the reflection of same may not be traced in the blood supply, for not only does the blood stream carry the rebuilding forces to the body, it also takes the used forces and eliminates same through their proper channels in the various portions of the system. Hence we find red blood, white blood and lymph all carried in the veins. These are only separated by the very small portions that act as builders, strainers, destroyers, or resuscitating portions of the system – see? Hence there is ever seen in the blood stream the reflections or evidences of that condition being carried on in the physical body. The day may yet arrive when one may take a drop of blood and diagnose the condition of any physical body…” Edgar Cayce reading (283-2)

During the course of a physical reading given for one individual, the reading foresaw future medical advancements that might make diagnosis from a drop of blood a possibility. The reading was given in 1927, at the time when the prediction would have been considered the makings of science fiction.

I have my doctorate in Naturopathic medicine and studied the work of Edgar Cayce extensively because he had so much medical advice, which is still used today by natural practitioners. I know that he saw the future of medicine based on what I have studied from his natural medicine teachings. I advise my clients to eat seven raw almonds every day based on this man’s work. It’s been proven that they have more essential oils then make any other nut and that they increase overall circulation, they contain the essence of life.

Because of his advanced healing methods it’s not surprising that he would see that blood contains the life essence therefore it would be the best diagnostic tool. His visions were always extraordinary and he saved so many people’s lives with his psychic diagnosis of a person’s condition. This is the man that I truly admire because he contained all the gifts that I myself use and study.

I would like to hear your thoughts and opinions on these great psychics. This also gives you a chance to study and learn more about famous prophecies.

What Is Our Biggest Problem NOW?

The Dow is Falling

Chicken Little-The Dow is Falling

The answer is: Fear. Right now people are living in a state of fear because of the economy making a change downward. For decades this situation has been going on, but did not make news until it started hitting the average person’s pocketbook.

The first fear started with the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001. People lived in fear that another attack was going to occur right away. Nine years later we have not had another attack and our fear level has gone down. The second was started with oil prices going up. The third was mortgage interest rates escalating to the point that people have lost their homes. Now we see banks closing and there is the belief that we may not have money for tomorrow. The job layoffs are daily and it will continue for some time. The economy is not going to recover quickly. This is where you must not let fear overwhelm you. You can survive on less, as consumers we’re not use to not having the latest clothes, electronics, cars, and homes. It’s time to learn how people have lived through tough economic times before. They did not purchase everything they desired. They learned to make do with what they had.

What makes this economic situation different than the crash of 1929 is the fact that people did not live on credit. Our economy today is based on credit. So this is really a credit crash, as evidenced by people unable to pay the loans on their mortgages. My father came through the depression and he always said, “If I can’t afford something I don’t need it.” He never owned a credit card and would always pay cash for what ever he needed.

It’s so easy to spend money with a credit card or a debit card. If you start using cash more you will find that you don’t spend as much. This is one way to stop the panic. Think carefully about what you really need before you buy it. You would be amazed at what you can live without.

With the economic crisis Chicken Little is running around screaming, “The Dow is falling, The Dow is falling.” Fear is causing people to panic and the media feeds the panic. Fear keeps people in line and following the actions of those in charge. We must not give in to the fear. Remember that this too shall pass. Realize that you have a hand in controlling your destiny and that you will always have enough to survive.

The biggest disguised fear, the one that is at the root of almost all of those fears that block us is Self.

It comes in the forms of Selfishness, Self Centeredness and Self Seeking, mainly and branches out from those, then flows out into all corners and crevices of our daily lives in too many different kinds of fears to mention them all here. As you know we can only find temporary relief by finding a False Key that works.

At this point in our Spiritual journey it is very important to define these three types of self and how they are really fear in disguise. These definitions, as I said above, will be very simple here. You for your own purposes can ponder in more depth how these manifest themselves in your own life and in the lives of those close to you and those who interact with you in your life.

To define Selfishness in its simplest form is: The constant fear that I am not going to have what I want when I want or need it. We can all ponder up many scenarios here.

The simplest definition of Self Centeredness is: Everything is all about me, my plans, and designs. If only everyone and all the things in my corner of the world would be and act the way I wish them to, at least this part of the world would be a much better place.

Self Seeking is probably the most misunderstood of the three. Also it is the most cleverly disguised and therefore causes more things that block the 6th sensor The Spirit than the other two combined. But again to keep it real simple here I will just give a short definition and description of how it manifests itself in all facets of our daily lives.

Self Seeking is; I know beyond any doubt, that if I do for you or act the way you want me to I can get you to do for me and to act the way I want you to.

But as we all know, most of the time that doesn’t hold true, as happens with all forms of fears disguised as forms of self. We are driven by so much self propulsion that we most of the time have no real hope of those things working out right. Also through our own actions we end up putting ourselves in a position to hurt or be hurt. Which of course causes us to become even more Spiritually blocked.

What I do is deliver truth about situations – because truth relieves one of all fears. As its states in the Bible, “The truth shall set you free.”

Story Book Love or an Empty Box of Chocolates

The majority of my clients are calling about relationships. After many years of doing psychic readings I have observed that the biggest problem people are having is lack of communication and that lack comes from modern technology. Text messaging, e-mail, Facebook and Myspace have taken over the way that people communicate. These forms of communication do not let you feel the intention or vibration of the person. Listen to my video and see if you don’t recognize things that you have observed or done with relationships.

I want to thank Lisa for doing a brilliant job with this video.

You Have the Power to Be Employed or Unemployed

This is an article I have recently written because of the jobless rate. So many of my clients have lost their jobs and every day you hear of more major layoffs. So I want to help people find a way back to employment. I think you will enjoy this video and I want you to know that the video was made by our own dear Lisa!
