Books About Mediums : Doris Stokes and Betty Shine These two frequently spoke to dead people who are not dead but continue living in paradise in another dimension. This leads to a whole list of amazing phenomena. ESP, EVP, OBE objects moving and materialising , miracle cures. What's it all about ?
I conclude the books are quite convincing, but they don't give any proof. So it's all very interesting maybe you don't have to be afraid of death, but I believe it doesn't make any difference all you can do is try to live life as a good person.

Doris Stokes :Voices In My Ear 1980,- interesting, but not 100% convincing

Readable prose, interesting, mother hates mediums, saw bad mediums, local tea leaf reader predicted future correctly,sometimes saw her dead father. Spirits said her child would die, he came to collect her at exact he predicted, regularly attended spiritualist church,

As a child she saw a dead man walking along side as people carried his own dead body.
Spirits often talked to her and sometimes materialised
Began to work as a medium when she was over 25 years old

Proof lots of testimonials from people who say she knew things about their dead relatives than was possible for a stranger.

Conclusions- Maybe there is a spirit world so maybe we shouldn't be afraid of death, but she doesn't prove this. Anyway I believe it doesn't make any difference all you can do is try to live life as a good person.

Questions arising - has a lot of illnesses ? does psychic energy damage her body ? Do other cultures have a similar picture of the spirit world ? Don't tribal people often ask the ancestors when they have a problem ?

Betty Shine - Mind to Mind 1989

As child had psychic experiences. Healed by Harry Edwards. Grandmother was a medium. Mother took her to spritualist church.
Saw dead dad and later dead mum
At 46 years old visited the clairvoyant Charles Horney - he said her illness was caused by a build up heaing energy and if she began to practise healing the energy would disperse. Predicted she would become a healer and something about Tom and a white horse.
She was very sceptical, 3 months of psychic phenomenon (winds etc), at the same time started to try healing; very successful
Saw robed person in light vortex
Name of spirit guide was Dr Watson !
William Blake tried to teach her ,but she hated the appearance of the drawings
One Spirit who materialised said he was Louis Pasteur.
saw large eye everywhere for 3 years
100's of patients healing improved

Sometimes became invisible to patients !
When she had flu she left her body, then she saw "uncle" Tom from evacuation time he apologised
Seperated from husband cos he was ill.
Received phone call from dead mum.

Auras - correspond to accupunture lines. Saw auras like haloes
looks at auras and sees problems with in it, sometimes different colour indicates what the illness is
mentions 7 Chakras
Concentrates on energy field, so colours return to normal (looks for imbalances)

Also worked in reverse patients could think of her and tap into the energy
Levitation - not exactly, but when healing was so strong people felt so light.
believes she can't attract bad spirits cos she is so positive.
believes only minds with the same frequency can't communicate; so not every medium can connect with every spirit
Spoke with some murdered children, but the name of the murderer was not mentioned who was either their dead mother or their uncle. They talked about their mother in a nice way. Their uncle is trying to prove he is innocent.
Mentions amateur scupturer is being helped by Rodin - surely a remarkable coincidence ?
Reincarnation (Bertha Harris -Traveler in Eternity) believes after 80 to 100 years dead many people choose to be reborn - possibly on other planets and you get to choose your parents.
Says people people who've been dead a fews years connect with mediums much more often than people long long dead.
Peter and Mary Harrison - Life Before Birth a book in which children tell of their life before birth
believes love at first sight is cos you know the person already from a past life.
Calcium Explosions - says many of her patients problems are due to calcium ball on their joints. Sometimes they hear cracking as these ball explodes during healing.
Says people should stay away from drugs - LSD enlightenments are like mysterious paranormal enlightenments
Warns people against relying on mediums
She says avoid coffee- Nutritional Medicine - Stephen Davies
Mentions diseases coming from space
Strongly believes you must avoid negative thinking
Patrick Moore is also a healer
Talks about exercises - turning watre into wine, dispersing couds (which she believes she is quite good at)

Questions arising - Does she get a lot of her beliefs from reading the same books as other spiritualists
Her Psychic daughter also divorced .. for experts they have a lot of problems

Proof ?

Conclusions- Her claims seems so absolutely fantastic. Maybe so over the top they are not plausible... Maybe... Same as for Doris Stokes, Betty shine does't contradict her.
I dislike her constant emphasis on only thinking positive; as a negative person I know you have to consider both sides.

Betty Shine - My Life As A Medium (autobiography) 1998

She was an opera singer, but then got into healing. She worked as a healer and had her own surgery. Whilst she was treating patients she would get messages from the dead
Believed very much in vitamin therapy - Mayo Clinic NY
often they would materialise to her and her patients. Clearly believes that after death you go into the spirit dimension to join the rest of your family, even miscarried children. The spirits can often see us living people.

She had always been psychic and her grandmother was a medium. She didn't want to become a medium

She developed her skills and spirit surgeons began to help her with her patients. One Spirit who materialised said he was Louis Pasteur. Spirit Surgeons began to offer diagnoses. Spirits helped with hypnotherapy.

Continued to be a Christian, but not in the normal church. Didn't like Spiritualist church

Began Absent Healing - meditates about patients problems. She believes that in her sleep her minds leaves her body during the night. remote healing - blue light blue fog
believes the spirit is attached to the body by an umbilical chord.
Took part in Secret science studies and re-continues
she says she didn't cause magic, but sometimes it happened
Dead children contacted her when parents not there
Set up International Healing Network - so she could heal people without concentrating on each patient.

Quite often helped the police investigations, but stopped as she felt it was clouding her mind from her healing work
Received message that she should concentrate on writing to spread the message about healing
knew another medium Doris Collins

Also mentions remotely healed by Harry Edwards
Meditates 2 hours each day
dreamt of the spirit world -beautiful - animals birds, music rooms

Questions arising - If she is so expert why did she go through 2 failed marriages, have problems with houses and have a lot of illnesses ?

Proof lots of testimonials from people who say she knew things about their dead relatives than was possible for a stranger. Says she has decided to link up with scientists and technicians -what will we see in the future ?

Conclusions- Same as for Doris Stokes, Betty shine does't contradict her

Mind Waves

Continues in the line of her previous books ..documenting her experiences and techniques.. so reinforcing her belifs ...especially strong line on reincarnation (she strongly believes) and if you do something bad it does come back on you
