The case of the moving bolster

Greetings my friends, I have often said that Spirit is around us more when we are in states of change and/or in need of guidance along our paths.

The Adoption Pact

A man, whom I’ll call Paul, recently came to me for a Messages from Loved Ones reading. He’d never had such a reading before, and admitted some doubt about the process itself, but the opportunity presented itself, and so he was going to take it.

In a synchronistic … Continue reading Can Dreams Tell our Future?

Séance in the Whitehouse?

Yes, that’s right. One particularly well-documented case occurred during Abraham Lincoln’s presidency, when the President’s wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, invited a noted trance medium, Nettie Colburn Maynard, age 21, to hold a séance in the White House and to meet the President.
