The Charm of Amulets

Q: Can you tell me about amulets? Is there one that increases creativity? A: An amulet is a charm, often inscribed with an incantation. Charms were originally spoken or sung. The word charm comes from the French charme, which means song. The problem was that most French people were totally tone deaf and solid objects became the preferred substitute. I’m sure you can go to Amulets-R-Us and get one for every reason under the full moon. Q: I was reading about the Dropa stones and the possibility that there is recorded history of the Earth being visited by aliens from…

Psychic Definitions and Charred Remains

Q: Can you tell me the difference between a psychic, a clairvoyant and a medium? A friend of mine says they’re all the same with different degrees of successful guessing. What do you think? A: By definition, a psychic is a person supposedly sensitive to nonphysical or supernatural forces and influences; a clairvoyant is a person having the supposed power to see objects or events that cannot be perceived by the senses; and a medium is a person thought to have the power to communicate with the spirits of the dead or with agents of another world or dimension. In…

Strange Rusty Powder Found on Cars

Q: I heard about a strange rusty powder that appeared on cars in the Chicago area recently. Angelo Mavaraganes, who runs a car repair shop, said he has seen it on at least 30 cars. Cars at the police parking lot at Belmont and Western have the rusty powder all over them, too. NBC 5’s Mary Ann Ahern said a lot of people in Chicago want to know what the stuff is that has fallen all over their cars. What do you think caused these occurrences? A: I believe someone from the Windy City bought some of our vortex energy…

Christmas Ghosts

Q: The first Christmas I spent with my husband’s family was at his oldest brother’s house. When we got there, they (my husband’s family) told me that the house was haunted. I didn’t mind because I’ve been in haunted houses before. They told me to be careful walking down the stairs because the ghosts pushed people down the stairs. I was coming down stairs to to peek at my gifts when, all of a sudden, I felt someone push my feet out from under me. I ended up falling down the first four stairs. I was slightly bruised, but okay….

Kelsey Grammer Speaks to the Dead

Q: I read where Kelsey Grammer speaks to the dead, including a 2,000 year old ghost called Alex, who teaches him about good and evil. The Frasier star has lost a number of family members to tragic and violent deaths, something he claims has strengthened his belief in an afterlife. His father was murdered by a gunman when he was 13, his sister was just 18 when she was robbed, raped and stabbed to death eight years later, and five years after that, his two half brothers were eaten by sharks. Grammer says: “I have communicated with many entities of…

Causes of Sudden Pole Shifting

Q: Scientists have found evidence that the Earth might have flipped over in the past, completely shifting the orientation of its poles. The theory has been around for years that a large mountain range or supervolcano might unbalance the spinning Earth. The theory, known as true polar wander, postulates that if an object of sufficient weight ever formed far from the equator, the force of the planet’s rotation would gradually pull the heavy object away from the Earth’s axis. Could this have really happened? A: Yes. It happened millions of years ago, when man replaced dinosaurs and more recently when…

Million Dollar Prize to Prove Your Paranormal Abilities

This means that all those wishing to be claimants are required to get their applications in before the deadline, properly filled out and notarized as described in the published rules. Do you think anyone will collect the money? A: How would I know? I’d have to be psychic or something, wouldn’t I?   Q: As the nation studies the polls in New…

Definition of Ghosts and Possession

Q: In quantum terms, the device with which you measure a phenomenon has a direct correlation with not only your anticipation, but with your result. Perhaps we have such individuated mechanisms that while not psychological in the strictest sense of measurement but with the context of relationships in our conceptual models, can provide us with unintended results, as we have attenuated our perception toward a bias that allows these interior relationships to manifest in cognition toward an sensate external manifestation, if there is something outside of our visual field that is already present in a theoretical perpetuity outside of the…
