Derek Thurlbeck, 63, of The Pastures, High Wycombe, Bucks, went to the homes of four separate women and touched their genitals over their clothes while treating them.

After a week-long trial at Reading Crown Court, Thurlbeck was found guilty of five counts of sexual assault by a unanimous jury verdict.

The incidents occurred between January 2017 and April 2019 in Slough and Bracknell where he assaulted four women. They were aged between 23 and 60.

Surinder Marway, who is based at Slough police station, said Thurlbeck “sexually assaulted vulnerable women, some over a period of two years, in their own homes...

Seven simple steps to boost your spirits with essential oils BY JULIA OYELEYE

  

Twenty-five years ago, Julia Oyeleye worked in the investment banking industry. Highly pressurised, juggling gym visits and stressful deals, missing meals and socialising, she was tired and stressed all the time.

 
JULIA OYELEYE: “Our sense of smell is a superhighway to the seat of our emotional control system in our brains.”

It wasn’t until Julia decided to retrain as an aromatherapist that she finally understood how the human body works and how her own habits were causing a lot of damage.

Fast forward around twenty years. Via her private clinic and through teaching, Julia has helped many clients to reset their health and wellbeing.

Published in June, Julia’s first book, “Aromatherapy for Mental Wellbeing,” has already become an Amazon bestseller.

Julia has contributed to the professional development of aromatherapy in the UK, sitting on boards of self-regulatory bodies and professional associations, contributing to national occupational standards and core curricula, and writing qualifications for a national examination board as well as being an examiner and teacher.

Julia runs two clinics, one in London, where she now lives with her family, and the other in Sevenoaks, Kent. She is currently writing a companion book for professional aromatherapists.

In this feature written specifically for “Psychic News,” Julia provides seven simple steps to achieving spiritual and emotional wellbeing with essential oils...

    Russian scientists seek clues from Tibetan monks to aid space travel
  
SOME Tibetan monks can enter a state of suspended animation.
   SOME Tibetan monks can enter
a state of suspended animation.
.

ACCORDING to a report in the Daily Mail, Russian scientists “are actively studying Tibetan monks in the hopes of garnering tips for astronauts on future long-distance space missions.”

Journalist Will Stewart added: “Experts from Moscow State University are examining ancient techniques for putting the human body into a ‘semi-lethargic state – suspended animation,’ before returning to normal weeks later.

“They are also examining the electrical activity in the monks’ brains during deep meditation.”

The team is studying “posthumous meditation” when “monks are declared clinically dead, but remain sitting upright with no sign of decay for days or weeks.”

A leading expert in long-distance space travel, Prof Yury Bubeyev said that “hibernation” may be critical to reaching Mars.

“We are looking for possible methods that can help us,” he added. “One of them is the use of practices of altered states of consciousness, in which Buddhist monks have been most successful.

“These states were achieved by many hours of meditation, isolation and monotonous recitation of mantras, in which deep concentration is achieved.

“This was already closer to the states of consciousness that are of interest to us, thanks to which a person can change the speed of their metabolism.”

A psychologist, the professor said that the Dalai Lama has confirmed that such a method exists...

shot from the film.

(Photo: October Eleven Pictures Ltd)
A NEW film with a paranormal theme has just been released after John West, a regular contributor to Psychic News, joined forces with director Jason Figgis to make films and documentaries.

Their first feature film together, Winifred Meeks, was released by Bayview in America and Canada last month. A British release is to follow in September this year.

The film was shot entirely on location in Suffolk and features Lara Belmont (Rise of the Footsoldier and The War Zone) as successful writer Anna James, who rents a remote farmhouse called Seaview House to begin work on the latest of a series of teenage crime novels called The Emma Hart Mysteries.

Initially, the setting seems perfect, but soon Anna’s idyll becomes unsettled by the presence of an unquiet spirit being – that of Winifred Meeks, the former lady of the house.

As Anna delves into her writing, while a deadline looms she also determines to uncover the history of the property and with that unwittingly moves closer to a disturbing confrontation with the tragic figure who continues to hold sway within the walls of Seaview House.

The film was written and directed by Jason Figgis, and was heavily inspired by the stories of M. R. James and films such as The Haunting and The Legend of Hell House...

Mindfulness ‘improves quality of life in heart attack survivors’

The findings of a new study announced last month has found that an eight-week programme of mindfulness meditation improves quality of life and reduces fear of activity in heart attack patients.

The results were presented at Acute CardioVascular Care 2021, an online scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology.

The society brings together health care professionals from more than 150 countries, working to advance cardiovascular medicine and help people lead longer, healthier lives.

“A heart attack is a serious life-threatening event and survivors can suffer from low quality of life,” said study author Dr Canan Karadas, of Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey.

“One reason is a fear of movement, called kinesiophobia, which limits daily activity due to concerns of another heart attack.

“Mindfulness refers to the mental state achieved by focusing awareness on the present moment, including thoughts, feelings and physical sensations.

“It has drawn increasing attention for treating chronic conditions such as high blood pressure. Our study examined its effect on fatigue, kinesiophobia and quality of life after an acute myocardial infarction (a heart attack).”

The study included 56 patients who had experienced a heart attack. At enrolment, their average age was 55 years.

Participants were randomly assigned to a mindfulness or control group for eight weeks.

Patients in the control group attended one fifteen-minute individual education session on the structure and function of the heart, the coronary arteries and diseases of the heart.

Those assigned to the mindfulness group attended an individual session, which included a fifteen-minute description of the technique...

Make Spiritualism count in the census!    By Alv Hirst, Spiritualists’ National Union Director of Communications

SPOILER alert. This is a call to action! March 21 is a census day for England, Wales and Northern Ireland; Scotland is delaying its census until next year.

You might think that this has little to do with Spiritualism, but in fact it’s very important.

The census survey has been undertaken every ten years and is the mass collection of statistics and information about the population of the UK.

The census surveys are run by the Office of National Statistics (ONS) in England and Wales, and the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA). You may recognise these names, which are often the definitive source of information in a variety of news reports.

ALV HIRST: “Spiritualism’s presence on the census is not just a number.”

  

KALV HIRST: “Spiritualism’s presence
on the census is not just a number.”

The census provides a snapshot of life that is then used for the planning and delivery of services, and to gain an understanding of the population and its changing needs.

Each household is legally required to complete the census, so it is not optional; fines are in place for non-compliance.

Once collected and processed, the information is published and used by the government, business, charity sectors and the media to understand the environment that they are operating in and the people they serve.

One of the areas that the census now collects information on is religion. This is where we see that it is of vital concern to Spiritualism.

If we take a look at the last census, which took place in 2011, we find that 39,061 described their religion as “Spiritualism” in England and Wales.

Working out how many Spiritualists there are in the UK is no easy task, and gaining a definitive number is impossible. The census is our best opportunity for anyone to understand how widespread Spiritualism is...

Moon ‘can help health during pandemic’
KIRSTY GALLAGHER: “Moon meditation is tuning into cycles of the moon.”  (Photo: Facebook)

ACCORDING to an expert on the moon’s benefits, it could play a vital part in maximising optimum health during the Covid-19 crisis.

Kirsty Gallagher, the author of Lunar Living, made the comment when she appeared on ITV’s This Morning, which is presented by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

“Moon meditation is tuning into cycles of the moon,” she told viewers. “Our ancestors used to live by the moon, using that kind of ancient wisdom and guidance and rhythm and flow of the moon to help us live our lives in a similar cyclical way.

“Especially at the time we’re in now, we’re not the same every day.

“We’re going through so many different emotions daily, sometimes hourly, that once we start to live in a cycle we allow ourselves again to be that bit more cyclical: we allow it rather than fight it.”

Phillip Schofield replied “So the moon has power over us,” before taking part in a brief meditation session with Kirsty Gallagher.

On her website, Kirsty says: “Often described as down to earth, warm-hearted, compassionate and inspiring, I am known for bringing ancient mystical practices and wisdom to modern-day life.

  Plucky pets make epic journeys to reach home

“Some years ago,” writes Tony Ortzen, “I began a book about animals, looking, for example, at their spirit returns and various other angles. Unfortunately, I’ve never had time to finish it.

“Here, owners tell how their lost pets braved oceans, mountains, seas, rivers and deserts to reach home after becoming lost, sometimes travelling hundreds and thousands of miles.”

MANY of us have known the anguish of losing a pet if only for a day or two.

Generally, they come romping home to be greeted joyously by their anxious owners.

Some pets go missing for months, even years. Not only that, but there are countless cases throughout the world of animals journeying thousands of miles – often across hostile terrain and even oceans – to return home using some kind of psychic radar...

‘Dead’ knight’s haunting role
  
   By Tony Ortzen
By Tony Ortzen

 

COMPARED to many of today’s totally talentless so-called celebrities and comedians, Sir Bruce Forsyth was a real star.

An incredibly gifted dancer, he was extremely versatile, could play the piano superbly, host TV shows with real panache and bubbled over with personality.
Now it’s been claimed that his ghost is haunting the theatre where his ashes are buried after actors and staff at the London Palladium are convinced there is a “friendly” presence at the world-famous venue..

Incidentally, medium Doris Stokes packed the Palladium on several occasions. Her demonstrations there always sold out days in advance.
According to an unnamed source, “Some strange things have been happening at the theatre and everyone’s certain it’s him.

“The Palladium was always Bruce’s kingdom and his presence there is felt now more than ever.

“Weird things keep happening, like people’s scripts and belongings being moved and turning up in strange places.

“Lights will dim when people are trying to read their lines in rehearsals and stuff like that.

“It’s nothing sinister, it’s like Bruce is playing practical jokes on everyone, just like when he was alive.

“Actors are very superstitious people. Since Bruce’s ashes were buried there, all the stars have been very mindful that he could be watching over them.
“Whatever is causing these strange goings-on, it’s nice to think that Bruce is still around.”
Sir Bruce passed on three years ago aged 89 after a long battle with illness...

  WOMAN TIME TRAVELS TO ANCIENT BATTLE By John West

Earlier this year, John West took a look at some of the many apparitions, which have been seen or sensed at St Albans in Hertfordshire.

St Albans owes its origins to the Romans, who founded a town in the fields below what is the modern city. It takes its name from Alban, a Roman citizen who protected a Christian priest during a time of persecution.

This month, John tells of more paranormal activity in St Albans and starts with the White Hart Hotel...

THE White Hart Hotel dates from the 1470s and claims to be the most haunted building in St Albans.

William Hogarth, the famous artist, went there in 1746 to sketch Lord Lovat, who was being taken to London for trial following the collapse of the Jacobite rebellion in 1745.

Lovat had been one of the key supporters of Bonnie Prince Charlie. He was found guilty and executed on Tower Hill the following year.

Room 8 is said to be the most haunted in the hotel. Guests have found towels strewn across the bathroom and one man discovered writing on the bedroom mirror...

DAVID R. BRUTON: “We have emphasised the need
to utilise hand sanitisers and
hand washing
facilities at all of our services.”
 

On a worldwide basis, so far tens of thousands of people have caught the coronavirus, although the vast majority make a full recovery. At the time of going to press, it has caused the passing of 71 people living in the UK, although this figure is likely to rise.

Below is a statement issued by Minister David R. Bruton, President of the Spiritualists’ National Union (SNU), who outlines the steps it is taking to keep its churches, colleges, students and staff as safe as possible.

IT was only a few months ago that a new strain of virus was reported in China. Since then, the coronavirus has spread around the world infecting many thousands of people and killing over 3,500 elderly and vulnerable individuals.

At the time of writing, the World Health Organisation has yet to declare the virus a pandemic, but this may well occur before too long.

The SNU is the world’s largest Spiritualist organisation. As such, we recognise that we have a tremendous responsibility to do all we can to keep our members, congregations and students safe, and supported with current information and guidance.

Over the last few weeks, we have carefully monitored the developing situation...

Your paranormal and spiritual questions answered    By Graham Jennings


How a doorkeeper safeguards mediums 

   Blue door photostock
What is the function of a medium’s “doorkeeper”? I’ve heard various theories and would welcome your view – Massie Dawson, by e-mail.

This is a medium’s most necessary spirit guide. It is the doorkeeper’s duty to protect mediums from any untoward or unwanted spirit intrusion.

A medium’s sensitivity is visible to those on the Other Side. Some spirit entities find it an irresistible attraction. They believe that if they can enter the medium’s sphere of consciousness, they will be in a position of influence.

Some might do so with less than the best of intentions. It is the doorkeeper’s job to vet every spirit being before allowing communication via a medium.

I once heard of a woman in a development circle who was overjoyed to find that she had finally developed clairvoyance.

 Instead of closing down properly, as she had been taught, she remained opened up, thus inviting spirit communication.

The woman arrived home still excited by her clairvoyance and continued to welcome spirit visitors. Weary at last, she went to bed and tried to sleep, but the communications – now unwanted – continued.

In desperation she phoned the circle medium in the early hours crying: “Help! It won’t stop. What shall I do?”

  ‘Aliens exist’ says first Briton to go into space

DR HELEN SHARMAN: “There are

(Photo: Anne-Katrin Purkiss)
ACCORDING to the first Briton to go into space, aliens are real and could be living among us on Earth.

Now 56, Dr Helen Sharman heard a call for astronaut applicants on the radio while driving home from work. Despite fitting the criteria, she almost decided against applying for the programme, but decided to go ahead.

“Self-belief and a can-do attitude changed my life,” said Dr Sharman. “I ticked all the boxes, but thought they wouldn’t choose me, so I would not bother.

“By the time I got home, I’d realised that if I didn’t actually apply, then they couldn’t choose me.”

Dr Sharman beat over 13,000 others to gain a place on Project Juno. This was partially designed to boost London-Moscow relations by sending a Briton to the Russian space station Mir in May 1991.

Then 27, Dr Sharman’s eight-day mission transformed her into a national hero, yet she believes that her achievement is sometimes forgotten.

At one point, the UK Space Agency described Tim Peake, who travelled to the International Space Station in 2015, as the UK’s first official astronaut.

“When Tim Peake went into space, some people simply forgot about me,” said Dr Sharman.

“I’ve never defined myself by gender and continue not to do so. People often describe me as the first woman in space, but I was actually the first British person. It’s telling that we would otherwise assume it was a man.”

In an interview with the Observer Magazine, Dr Sharman said that extraterrestrial life is bound to exist in the universe...

Bringing our psychic 
past back to life    A treasure trove of archived Psychic News is now back online...   for free

HAVING been in limbo for many months, in order to deal with various issues largely resulting from a transfer of ownership, the Psychic News digital archive is now back online at the University of Manitoba’s Archives and Special Collections website.

THE University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections is a world leader in the preservation of parapsychology research.   
THE University of Manitoba Archives
& Special Collections is a world leader
in the preservation of parapsychology
research.
 

It was first launched in May 2018. The headline on the feature announcing it in these columns (PN June 2018) said it all, “Psychic News at your fingertips for free.”

We explained that thanks to a unique collaboration with the University of Manitoba in Canada, 78 years of this publication’s newspaper format editions – from 1932 to 2010 – would be made available to anyone, anywhere in the world, free of charge.

All that is needed to dive into this fascinating paranormal collection of news and views is a computer or other digital device with an internet connection.

This treasure trove of paranormal history, consisting of 4,125 issues of the weekly newspaper and its occasional supplements, was described at the time as an ongoing project that would be slowly rolled out in the months ahead.

The archive was originally owned by a Spiritualist charity, but its decision to gift it to Psychic Press Ltd, the owners of Psychic News incorporating Two Worlds, meant that a new agreement was necessary between the Canadian university and ourselves.

So, while those negotiations took place, the PN Digital Archive had to be put on temporary hold and removed from public access.

The good news is that it is now up and running again, with the first tranche of issues – from 1932 to 1967 – now available to view online.

The rest of the archive, right through to the final 2010 newspaper edition, will be added later this year. Check it out at https://libguides.lib.umanitoba.ca/psychicnews

New book is published on medium who packed the London Palladium
  

JUST weeks away from the centenary of the birth of famous medium Doris Stokes, a new book is being released this month about her life and achievements.

DORIS STOKES “would much sooner have had a Swiss roll than a Swiss bank account any day!”
   DORIS STOKES “would much sooner
have had
a Swiss roll than a Swiss
bank account any day!”

It has been written by Linda Dearsley, who wrote several of Doris’ best-selling books.

Because she was clairaudient, all featured the word “voices” in the title. The latest book, Voices Everywhere, is subtitled The Mysterious Doris Stokes Effect.

Born on January 6, 1920, Doris passed on May 8, 1987, following surgery at a NW London hospital for a brain tumour. It is thought that she did not regain consciousness after the operation.

“Doris suffered health problems for many years,” said Linda. “Apart from having a breast removed due to cancer, her thyroid was also removed.

“She was good-natured throughout and would sometimes joke, ‘They’re taking me over to the Other Side bit by bit!’

“On more than one occasion, Doris had to cancel one of her sold-out meetings, and felt awful about having to do so. However, she always wanted to give of her very best and not to disappoint people with a poor demonstration of mediumship.”

Asked how the latest book came about, Linda told Psychic News: “Last year, having written a couple of unrelated books for him, my editor at the publishers asked me to give him some ideas for another title.

“I jotted down about six possibilities. The morning I was going to e-mail them to him, I woke up thinking about the ‘voices books’ and how clever Doris’ publishers had been to think of so many permutations – Voices in My Ear, Joyful Voices, Whispering Voices, Voices of Love, etc.

“If Doris hadn’t passed when she did, I thought, ‘I wonder what other titles they would have been able to think of using voices?’ Suddenly, into my head jumped the title Voices Everywhere...

FOOTBALLER-TURNED-ACTOR Vinnie Jones says he now believes in the afterlife following his wife’s passing.

Tanya, his 53-year-old partner, passed on after losing a six-year battle with melanoma, the most severe type of skin cancer. The couple lived in Hollywood.

Surrounded by Vinnie and five family members – including their daughter Kaley – Tanya died at their Los Angeles home.

It was in her final moments that Vinnie, known as a hardman actor, said he felt Tanya’s spirit leave the room.

“When she finally went, it was like Tinker Bell had released her,” he said. “It felt like her spirit was moving in the room. I got peace from that.

“We were outside until about midnight, but I was the last to go to bed. With Tanya, she would always blow me a kiss and I would catch it and carry it with me.

“When I went to go in and looked up, there was a small white light straight above me. I thought it was strange.

“It was right there above the house. So I went, ‘Is that you babe?’ But the light didn’t move.”

The actor added: “Then as I went to go in, I turned around, blew her a kiss and threw it...

Native American wisdom

  

AS she was recently appointed America’s first ever Native American Poet Laureate, it was a real coup for medium Robert Brown to obtain an interview with Joy Harjo.

To honour both Joy and Native Americans generally, until we meet again next month, let’s end with some truly inspiring examples of their quite superb philosophy:

DREAM expert Charlie Morley is invited to address over 200 staff at the Ministry of Defence.

JOY HARJO: “The spirit of poetry
came to me.”
 

  

• It was our belief that the love of possessions is a weakness to be overcome. Children must early learn the beauty of generosity.

They are taught to give away what they prize most that they may taste the happiness of giving.

The Indians in their simplicity literally gave away all that they had – to relatives, to guests of other tribes or clans, but above all to the poor and the aged from whom they can hope for no return.
– Ohiyesa


• Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilised men, we didn’t have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents. We had no locks or keys. Therefore, among us there were no thieves.

When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would receive it all as a gift.

We were too uncivilised to give great importance to private property. We didn’t know any kind of money. Consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by his wealth.

We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers and no politicians. Therefore, we were not able to cheat and swindle one another.

We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived. I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that, so they tell us, are so necessary for a civilised society.

Two Words Are One News and views from the editor’s desk  By Tony Ortzen

  

Matters military

TO military matters. And here are two stories about the Armed Forces for the price of one, so please sit to attention!

DREAM expert Charlie Morley is invited to address over 200 staff at the Ministry of Defence.

DREAM expert Charlie Morley is invited
to address over 200 staff at the Ministry
of Defence.

  
A few months ago, we featured lucid dreaming expert Charlie Morley, who has just announced that he recently addressed the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

“Yup,” he said. “That really happened.? I spoke for 45 minutes about how lucid dreaming and mindfulness of dreams and sleep can help integrate nightmares and stress-affected sleep to a room of over 200 MoD staff members at the main Ministry of Defence building on Whitehall.

“This would not have happened ten years ago. In fact, this would not have happened even five years ago, but times are changing and minds are opening. Slowly but surely!

“In lieu of the MoD talk and the growing interest in the work I’ve been doing with veterans, I’ve made a new website focusing solely on this topic.”

Later on this year, Charlie is taking a workshop at London’s College of Psychic Studies. Entitled “Mindfulness of Dream Sleep for Trauma and Stress Affected Sleep Patterns,” it was originally developed for British military veterans.

Mindfulness of dream and sleep (MODS) is a holistic approach to healing for people with stress or trauma-affected sleep patterns.

At the workshop, Charlie will explain “how to transform the harmful effects that stress and trauma can have on the third of our life that we spend asleep.”

Using scientifically verified mindfulness-based techniques alongside breath and body work practices, the MODS method helps to reduce stress and enhance sleep quality.

The workshop will also explore various topics including the science of sleep cycles, embracing nightmares, the neuroscience of trauma, sleep hygiene and dream work for trauma integration.

By the way, Charlie has written three books. These have been translated into eleven languages, which sounds like a wide-awake success story...

Study finds one in ten people 
has a near-death experience

  

ACCORDING to a new study, one in ten people has undergone a near-death experience (NDE).

   DR DANIEL KONDZIELLA: “We confirmed the association of near-death experiences with rapid-eye movement sleep intrusion.”

  
 

DR DANIEL KONDZIELLA: “We confirmed
the association of near-death experiences
with rapid-eye movement sleep intrusion.”

Looking at the body’s response to imminent mortal danger, real or otherwise, Danish researchers said that these experiences were triggered by the same mechanism which caused lucid “wakeful” dreaming.

Via an “online platform,” the study used questionnaire responses from 1,034 jurors and magistrates. It found that nearly 300 people reported some kind of psychological or spiritual experience.

Seventy-three per cent said the experience was unpleasant. However, of the 106 participants who met the criteria for a “true” NDE, as defined by the Greyson scale, 53 per cent said it was pleasant. Only fourteen per cent called it unpleasant.

The Greyson scale is one of the most widely used methods to classify and distinguish NDEs from other states. Professor Bruce Greyson, who is a psychiatrist, developed it in 1983.

His scale contains sixteen questions. To qualify as a genuine NDE, participants must score seven or higher in the following points:

Did time seem to speed up or slow down?

Were your thoughts speeded up?

Did scenes from your past come back to you?

Did you suddenly seem to understand everything?

Did you have a feeling of peace or pleasantness?

Pat your pet to keep 
the doctor away  By Billy Roberts

  

GANDHI once said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

   DOGS are being trained to react to various conditions, such as sniffing cancer.

  
 

DOGS are being trained to react to various
conditions, such as sniffing cancer.

This is quite evident, in our so-called modern and advanced age, when we look at the way in which some countries regard animals. In ancient Egypt, anyone caught being cruel to cats would be executed with no questions asked!

Thankfully, the majority of people in the western world treat animals with great fondness and respect. Most families have a pet of one kind or another. Whether a dog or a cat, he or she is nearly always considered as one of the family.

This does not in any way mean cruelty to animals no longer happens because, sadly, we know that it does. However, both dogs and cats contribute far more to the family atmosphere than a mere furry presence.

It is really only over the last twenty years or so that it has been realised just how much dogs and cats affect our lives from a psychological as well as a physical perspective.
Indeed, there is a great deal of evidence to suggest that children brought up with a dog or cat are far more sensitive, caring and emotionally balanced than those raised in a family without a pet.

Much more than this, it is now widely accepted that pets, particularly dogs and cats, possess the extraordinary ability to make us feel better when we are not too well or simply out of sorts.
Our dog or cat always seems to know when we are under the weather and will always insist on cuddling up to us on the settee in an effort to make us feel better.

There is no doubt that shows of affection from a pet are not only comforting when you’re off colour, but they really do make you feel better.

Although in previous years the healing that occurred was thought to be simply a psychological phenomenon, today there appears to be a more scientific explanation why it occurs...

Professor plans brain activity tests on mediums

A CALL has gone out for mediums with at least five years’ experience to take part in an exciting new study.

   PROF CHRIS ROE: “Not all scientists are preoccupied with debunking paranormal claims.”

  
 

PROF CHRIS ROE: “Not all scientists
are preoccupied with debunking
paranormal claims.”

It will take place in the science laboratory within the estate of the Arthur Findlay College, Essex. The college is based at Stansted Hall.

The details came from Prof Chris Roe, the Director of the University of Northampton’s Centre for Psychology and Social Sciences.

“When Arthur Findlay gifted Stansted Hall to the Spiritualists’ National Union in 1964, it was for the establishment of a college for the advancement of psychic science,” Prof Roe told PN.

“While there have been some highly successful collaborations between scientists and mediums, the research and practitioner communities have not had much to do with each other in recent times.”

Prof Roe added that six years ago, Minister David Bruton, President of the Spiritualists’ National Union (SNU), sought to rectify this by organising a science day at the Arthur Findlay Centre in Stafford, which has been renamed the Barbanell Centre.

A number of academics, including Prof Roe, were invited to give talks on the science of mediumship.

“The event,” he said, “was very well attended. There was an enthusiastic response to the suggestion that researchers and mediums should work more closely together.”

As a first step, Prof Roe, his team, David Bruton and SNU tutor Chris Connelly co-organised a science week at the Arthur Findlay College, during which “developing mediums were introduced to a range of methods that have been used to research mediumship.

“They were given a chance to try the methods out for themselves, including interviews and surveys, experiments testing the survival hypothesis and studies that measure brain activity.”

Prime Minister faces ‘telepathic attack’ on EU referendumIN what one national newspaper termed a “telepathic attack,” metal-bender Uri Geller has urged the public to use mind power to try and secure a second referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU.

Prime Minister.  (Photo: urigeller.com)
 

  

Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Uri said that he has “known Theresa May for over 21 years, as I lived in the same village as she still does.

“She visited my home. I took her to my garage, pointed at a spoon that belonged to Winston Churchill and bombarded her saying, ‘She will be Prime Minister.’ She laughed. Now she is.”

Uri said he plans to use the “power of my mind” and, with the help of millions of fellow Remainers, mount a telepathic attack on Mrs May aimed at forcing her to hold a second referendum.

Admitting that many sceptics do not believe in his gifts, Uri outlined his scheme to keep Britain within the EU.

“This is my plan to all of you who are with me,” he said. “I’m not a prophet and I’m not a guru.

“If we concentrate together at 11.11 am/pm every morning and evening, think the following: ‘Theresa, bring us to a second vote. Go to a second referendum’.”

Though he now lives in Israel, Uri said that he has a British passport and “cares passionately” about the UK’s future...

Musicians tell of 
divine inspiration By Billy Roberts

X-RAYS were discovered by accident in 1895.
  

X-RAYS were discovered
by accident in 1895.

WHEN John Lennon was composing some of his great songs, such as Imagine, he described the process of inspiration as though the top of his head had been opened and the words and tune just poured in as if from some cosmic source.

John was certainly not one for having flights of fancy and couldn’t have described the process of inspiration better and what occurred when he was “in the zone,” so to speak.

Barry Gibb, of Bee Gees fame, is yet another musician who attributed his compositions to some divine source and said that music came to him in dreams. He keeps a recording device on his bedside cabinet, so he can sing into it when waking in the middle of the night.

But is this really divine inspiration or just a huge coincidence manufactured by genius? Apart from music icons, what about other great inventors throughout time who have enhanced the quality of our lives with their discoveries?

Let’s start with Alexander Fleming, who gave us penicillin, the first antibiotic, which has saved the lives of countless millions of people throughout the world.
A Scottish bacteriologist, Fleming accidentally discovered the antibiotic in 1928 when he returned from holiday and found that a green mould called penicillium notatum had contaminated Petri dishes in his laboratory and killed some of the bacteria he had been growing.

We take many things for granted, without giving much thought to how they first came about. Here are some others...

Spirit healer has ‘X-ray vision when she touches people’

A HEALER and medium who, said The Sun, has a “magic touch” and “experiences X-ray vision when she touches people,” told PN last week that after being featured by the paper, she experienced “a spike” in requests for readings.

BRITTA HOCHKEPPEL: “Working with Spirit is proof that when we pass on, all we leave behind is our physical body.”     
BRITTA HOCHKEPPEL: “Working with Spirit is
proof that when we pass on, all we leave behind
is our physical body.”

German-born Britta Hochkeppel also noticed an increase in people seeking healing for animals.

Now based in Coggeshall, Essex, Britta’s Vita Serena sanctuary is decorated with Buddhas, angel wings, gongs and drums, which she uses in sound healing.

The paper said that Britta, a “natural born sceptic,” quit her career as a print maker to become a psychic surgeon. It added:

“She claims to have a ‘word of mouth reputation’ for ‘healing’ back pain, insomnia, arthritis and migraines…
“She has ‘healed’ hundreds of people simply by laying her hands on their bodies, seeing inside to the root of the problem and directing energy towards it.

“Britta also receives animal patients and says that last month she cured a paralysed dog after three sessions.”

The healer told journalist Becky Pemberton: “When I first started out in naturopathy, you only had to mention the words ‘energy’ or ‘psychic’ and people would run a mile.

“Now, though, the tide is starting to turn and people have come to realise that there is a lot more going on beneath the surface that science doesn’t have an answer for.”

Britta grew up in Germany and became familiar with natural remedies when a youngster, as her grandmother, Gertrude, who now guides her, was also a healer. She passed on in 1992 when Britta was aged 24.

“My grandmother was a very humble woman and did not like to boast about her abilities, but certainly had some kind of healing power, which fascinated me,” said Britta...

Have moving moments with a do-it-yourself meditation test

HOT on the heels of the news that Prince Harry is meditating every day before he becomes a father, here’s a chance for PN readers to try what many on social media wrongly believe is a stress test, but more of that later.

IT has emerged that Prince Harry is now meditating on a daily basis.  (Photo: DoD News / EJ Hersom)

“Harry Krishna” ran a lead story headline in The Sun, which said that “Meg’s chilled-out prince” is meditating on a daily basis.

Journalist Emily Andrews explained that Prince Harry, 34, chatted to Buddhist monk Kelsang Sonam when he and his wife Meghan visited a café in Birkenhead, Merseyside.

“Harry asked me how I became a Buddhist monk,” said 69-year-old Kelsang. “He said he meditated every day, so I gave him my meditation book.”

The prince also revealed that he is a feminist when he and Meghan, who is six months pregnant, visited the Tomorrow’s Women charity.

“Harry initiated a group hug,” said its chief executive officer Angela Murphy. “There were about fifteen women – it was a scrum. He said, ‘Come on, group hug.’ You don’t expect that. They engaged and initiated conversations with the women and were so warm.”

Carol Cooper, the paper’s doctor, said meditation helps people to sleep better, reduces anxiety and makes individuals more patient, which were valuable assets for a new father.

“Harry,” she added, “will have a sense of physical and mental wellbeing.”

The paper ended by saying that meditation is practised widely in many eastern religions and philosophies, including Hinduism and the Hare Krishna movement.

In its report of the couple’s visit to Birkenhead, the MailOnline said that Los Angeles-based meditation instructor Light Watkins claimed he had spent four days giving Meghan one-to-one guidance and still e-mails the duchess a “daily dose of inspiration.”

Doctor backs healer’s distant healing sent 6,000 miles By Kano Baker

SINGER Engelbert Humperdinck has revealed that he takes his wife, Patricia, to healers in a bid to halt her Alzheimer’s disease.

(Photo: Wayne Dilger)

Engelbert, 82, and Patricia, 79, have been married for 54 years. First diagnosed with Alzheimer’s ten years ago, she now has 24-hour care.

The singer, who has sold more than 150 million records, told the Daily Mail’s Lina Das that he discovered a gift for healing several years ago when on tour in Germany.

Suffering from a viral infection for over four months, Engelbert visited an iridologist, who cured him within two weeks. The practitioner told him, “You have healing powers.”

Though he “just laughed at him,” Engelbert decided to try healing. One of his patients had Bell’s palsy, which causes facial paralysis.
“I prayed for him and within three minutes his lip came down,” said the singer. “People think I’m crazy, but I don’t care. If I can help somebody in any way, that’s fine by me.

“With any healer, they say that the only person they can’t help is their spouse because they’re too close. I still pray over my wife, though. I do everything I can.”

The couple live in Bel Air, California and have four children. Of his wife’s condition, Engelbert said: “She’s doing OK considering that she’s had it for the past ten years.

“Patricia still knows me and knows everybody. Our son Scott came over from Australia a couple of days ago and she called him by his name.

“That’s totally unheard of because after ten years of Alzheimer’s nobody can say people’s names like that.

“When Scott went back to Australia, she cried, so she knows who he is. We’re doing everything we can to help her.

“I have acupuncturists see her, as well as my regular doctor, who’s wonderful. I also have people from the holistic world and I’ve taken her to see healers."

Doctor backs healer’s distant healing sent 6,000 miles By Kano Baker

HEALER Carol Everett’s abilities have been successfully measured by medical technicians, and the effects verified, by using thermal imaging cameras checking results in real time with a patient-to-healer distance of 6,000 miles.

   CAROL EVERETT: “I reach a place where there is no time and everything is at one with pure energy.”
CAROL EVERETT: “I reach a place
where there is no time and everything
is at one with pure energy.”
  

Some years ago, Professor Yoshio Machi, of Tokyo’s Denki University, tested Carol’s healing abilities, which were confirmed by a doctor before and after healing.

Now Dr Enrique García Jiménez, who practises in Murcia, Spain, has likewise backed her gift concerning the latest tests involving the USA and Spain.

In a testimonial, Dr Enrique explained that he was asked “to check sets of thermal images taken during healing to observe and comment as a doctor on changes in the images over the healing period and to decide if that change was as a result of healing.

“There were no external influences other than the healing to make the changes that were observed…

“When asked about the results I witnessed at a distance, it was sufficient to confirm clearly that changes happened by means of Carol Everett’s healing abilities.

“I have seen Carol’s healing ability over a number of years now. Though I do not understand how it happens, there is evidence from results obtained to support that her healing somehow has a beneficial effect.

“Normally it is not possible to see this happening, but the thermal images from the tests allow it to be seen, as it has a direct influence on the patient.”

During the 6,000-mile tests, three people received distant treatment from Carol, who was in her consulting room in Spain and used a video conferencing link....

Psychic says Roman soldiers cause accident black spot

A PSYCHIC made headlines and was interviewed on national radio after saying that an accident-plagued part of the M6 in Cheshire may suffer from more crashes than other stretches of the motorway because Roman soldiers haunt it.

   MIKE BROOKER stands above Junction 18 on the M6. Statistically, the motorway is one of the worst accident black spots in the country.

Statistically, the motorway is one of the worst accident
black spots in the country.
  

The M6 runs from junction 19 of the M1 at the Catthorpe Interchange, near Rugby, then heads north, passing Stoke-on-Trent, Liverpool, Manchester, Preston, Lancaster and Carlisle. It terminates at the Gretna junction in Scotland.

One press report stated: “A series of strange phenomena have been reported by motorists between junctions 16 and 19, including phantom lorries, spectral hitchhikers and sightings of legionnaires.

“Mike Brooker says the disturbance caused by a £250 million upgrade project could be to blame.

“He said a Roman burial ground in the area of the roadworks may have awoken 2,000-year-old spirits which now haunt motorists and cause crashes.”

Mr Brooker, 53, from Northwich, has dubbed the area “Cheshire’s Bermuda Triangle” because of the relatively high number of accidents on the “treacherous” stretch of road...

A PSYCHIC in Devon who reunited a missing pet skunk with its owner is now being approached from people in various parts of the world to find lost pets.

Hypnotherapist and psychic Becky Willoughby was interviewed by Abbie Bray on devonlive.com

Abbie explained that last year, Becky reunited Dottie the skunk with her owner Sarah Harris “by using what she calls ‘intuitive energy.’

“She says she managed to find out Dottie’s whereabouts after having a vision of where she was.

“Becky said that since she reunited Dottie with Sarah, she has been contacted by people all over the world asking her to help them find their lost pets.”

More recently, Becky said that a woman called Anne “contacted me from Suffolk after her dog Sassi went missing.

“I was contacted by a friend who asked me to help her, and I described the whole area of where the dog had gone missing.

   Clairvoyant clues were given about Zuzia, the missing Polish skunk.

“Sassi was chasing a deer when she ran off. I could see that she had injuries all over her body and had died. “Anne knew the area I was describing. The following day, she went there and found Sassi. Anne contacted me shortly afterwards to thank me because she could get closure on her passing.”

Becky added that pet owners have got in touch with her from Poland, New Zealand and America.

“A couple from Poland wants me to help them find their pet skunk Zuzia,” she said. “Zuzia went missing in July...

Additional free content: Extract from Many Voices, One Mission by Michael G. Reccia and R. Jane Kneen.

…The Passing of Mr Johnson


[Jane recalls: This clairvoyant communication was given to us early one Easter Saturday morning by the Persian Gentleman as a narrative to illustrate a typical scenario of someone passing into the spiritual realms. This was several years before Joseph’s comprehensive account of the afterlife in his book Your Life After Death, which describes in great detail many other scenarios, pathways and processes as we journey onwards through the spiritual spheres.]

   Many Voices, One Mission – part of The Joseph Communications – by Michael G. Reccia and R Jane Kneen

The Persian Gentleman: Good Morning, Michael; Good Morning, Jane; and Good Morning, Molly [a greeting to our Spaniel - once described by Silver Star as ‘the most stubborn dog that ever incarnated’]. And it is a good morning to talk to you because there is a very strong link between the Earth plane and my plane, which I knew about in advance and is why I said specifically that I would come to you on this particular Saturday. The day has been arranged so that I can bring this information through early in the morning when most people are asleep, which is important because when they get up their thoughts spill out into the atmosphere and pollute the vibration of communication, making it more difficult for us to work.

I wish to talk about 'enrolment' into the spiritual realms (although that is not strictly the correct term as all souls come from and go back to that dimension) and I want to consider things from the point of view of the ordinary man or woman.

So, let us imagine that we are with a 'Mr Johnson', who has lived what may be described as an ‘average life’. He has held down an average job with average earnings. He is married with two children and lives in an average type of house. His father is still alive but his mother has passed on to the spirit worlds …or, as he thinks, has ‘died’ and no longer exists.

Mr Johnson has been a worrier all his life and over the last few months has experienced a tightness across his chest as a result of his anxiety. On this particular morning he sets off to work in his average car but doesn't actually arrive there because, as he crosses the bridge linking the residential side of town to the area where he works, he suddenly feels a severe pain in his chest which he clutches as he tries to keep his car on the road. The pain passes and he thinks: 'Thank goodness for that! I thought for a moment I was having a heart attack but it must just have been indigestion.'

He continues to drive towards work …or so he thinks… and suddenly becomes aware of someone sitting in the passenger seat. Looking across he sees a man who seems strangely familiar to him …

Top tips to beat stress

   STEPHEN MARKS: “Around 60,000 thoughts pass through our minds every day.”
STEPHEN MARKS: “Around 60,000 thoughts
pass through our minds every day.”

PRIME MINISTER Theresa May has revealed she walks, reads cookery books and watches the American naval crime programme “NCIS” to help her unwind and beat the stress of life at Number 10. Inspired by the Premier’s recent revelation about “NCIS,” here Stephen Marks, a qualified yoga instructor, gives some top tips on how to beat stress.

Having spent twenty years in a City law firm, Stephen is the founder of Mind Body Buildinag and a fully-qualified practitioner of Yoga nidra. He trained in Costa Rica at the Punta Mona eco-resort with the Shamanic School of Yoga and is now a Thought Leader at the Global Wellness Institute.

Additionally, Stephen helped institute two wellness programmes in leading London law firms and has also worked with global accountancy practices and advertising agencies.

Stephen, who has travelled to over 80 countries in the world, pointed out that “85 per cent of adults in the UK regularly feel stressed. Learning how to manage this is key.

“I like to compare the mind to a musical instrument. The best orchestral players tune their instruments every time they play, so why not fine tune your mind?”

Meditation

There is an Indian saying, “If you don’t go within, you go without.” The pace of life is relentless. Additionally, around 60,000 thoughts pass through our minds every day. However, a lot of this flow of thought is not helpful, and is often critical and negative.

Meditation in its simplest form can help us to take a step back and slow our thoughts down. Rather than having to constantly react to impulses and situations, meditation trains us to approach things in a calmer and more detached way.

Being able to relax the mind in this way can have a huge effect on our overall wellbeing. Nowadays, it is easy to get started with a host of online resources, apps and classes with some studios dedicated solely to meditation...

‘Changing gender sparked my psychic gifts’ says medium
  
Becs Sawyer (Photo: Facebook)

 
Becs Sawyer (Photo: Facebook)

A MEDIUM who transitioned from a male to a female has explained that her psychic gifts blossomed only after she made the change.

“Meet the borough’s trans medium,” announced the Ilford Recorder on its front page, which sent reporter Ellena Cruse to see one of Rebecca “Becs” Sawyer’s demonstrations and interview her.

Ellena started her account: “Despite the remnants of a glorious day outside, I sit in a packed room with around a hundred other people, eyes facing forward.

“The only exception to the mass stillness and silence is a woman sitting behind me. As gentle tears roll down her face, she whispers, ‘Thank you.’

“Before you think I have run away and joined a cult or decided to audition as an extra in a futuristic dystopian movie, I need to come clean and reveal that I am relatively safe and have come to watch a show by medium Rebecca ‘Becs’ Sawyer, who grew up in Ilford. “If every medium has a back story, 
then Becs has a seven-part series and 
she claims that her gift only manifested after she changed sex from a man to woman.

“A former 6ft 2in martial arts trainer, who was bullied at school, she said it was only when she was true to herself that she could feel spirits.”

Becs said that she “always had a passion” for the subject, “but nothing really developed much until I went through my own emotional and physical transition, then the spiritual stuff opened up.

“I came across some brilliant tutors and mentors who helped me. We all have the ability – it is not a superpower. I don’t think unless I went through the transition it would have happened.”

Ellena added, “Just like living people, Becs said spirits of the dead all have different energies and personalities, and she doesn’t like all of them.”

Actress sees child’s form at end of bed

   Trudie Styler
Trudie Styler.

ACTRESS and producer Trudie Styler has told how she saw a child’s spirit form.

Ms Styler is married to singer, songwriter and actor Sting. He was the principal songwriter, lead singer and bassist for the new wave rock band The Police from 1977 to 1986 and later launched a solo career.

She was interviewed in Metro by journalist Anna Smith, who asked: “Sting claims he was once confronted by a ghost. Do you believe in them?”

Ms Styler explained that she was staying at Ragley Hall, a stately home located south of Alcester, Warwickshire, eight miles west of Stratford-upon-Avon.

It is the ancestral seat of the Marquess and Marchioness of Hertford, who had been to see a play in which Ms Styler appeared and invited her to stay for the weekend.

“They gave me a very nice room and said it was a very special room,” said Ms Styler. Following dinner with about twenty people and their children, she went to bed.

“In the wee hours,” Ms Styler explained, “a little lad appeared at the end of the bed. I said, ‘Goodness, can’t you sleep?’ He looked at me, then I looked again and he wasn’t there.”

The next morning, Ms Styler asked, “Who is the little boy walking around late at night?” The Marquess replied, “Ah, you met him, did you?”

Miss Styler added: “This was their haunted room. His wife said: ‘It’s a good sign. It means you’ll have a baby in the next year.’

“He appears to women guests, who often have a child soon after. About a year later, I had my daughter, Mickey.”

Sting described on BBC Radio 2 an apparitional encounter he once experienced. His wife also saw the figure concerned.

“I would never have said I believe in ghosts until I saw one – and I’ve seen a ghost with my own eyes,” said the singer. “I was in bed one night in a very old house I used to live in.

“I woke up at three in the morning, bolt upright, looked into the corner of the room and thought I saw Trudie standing there with a child – our child – in her arms, staring at me...

Phillippa Read gives healing
to a young alpaca named Sunny.

SPIRITUAL healers at two of the Isle of Wight’s Spiritualist churches have adopted a hands-on programme to take healing directly into the community.

The details came from Sylvia Knight, the healing leader at Ryde church, which has teamed up with counterparts from Ventnor Spiritualist Church. Maureen Turpin is the healing leader at Ventnor church.
“We’ve joined together to work in the community at healing and well-being shows around the island,” Sylvia told PN. “The joint venture began eight years ago – and is still going strong.”

It first began when “we were at a healing session in Ventnor church. A young man came in and told us he was arranging a healing festival in Ventnor Botanic Garden to raise funds to help towards the cost of running the gardens and asked if we would like to take part.

“As this was a Thursday and the festival was on the following Saturday and Sunday, we decided we would give it a go. I had a gazebo and between the rest of the team we cobbled together a stand.

“We were very surprised and pleased with the response we had at the festival. We now have our own gazebo and banners advertising the churches.

“The island has many festivals. Depending on time and cost we try to do at least three a year.”

Between five and ten healers are involved, but the number of those attending “varies due to work and other commitments.”

The healers come from various backgrounds. They include “a hairdresser, a shop assistant, three carers, an assistant manager at the local cinema, a pizza delivery man and a receptionist. The rest of us are retired.”...
