Hi everybody. Cara Santa Maria here. Perhaps you're one of the eight million Americans who claim to have had a near-death experience. Did you see a bright white light at the end of a tunnel? Maybe you floated above yourself in an out-of-body experience. Overwhelmingly, people who've had so-called near-death symptoms report a calmness, lack of fear, and feeling of being one with the universe. A relatively simple explanation of the near-death experience requires little scientific reasoning and absolutely no measurable evidence. If someone is on death's door and then suddenly pulled back into the realm of the living, perhaps he or she glimpsed into the moments prior to the soul leaving the body and joining the great cosmic consciousness beyond.

Psychics Becoming Popular in News Reports

Psychics have always had a sort of stigma attached to their gifts when it comes to skeptics and rabid opponents of "the occult." It doesn't help when out of the many who claim to be psychic, only a very select few people actually harness ESP abilities. This has been made embarrassingly clear since Monday when a woman falsely claimed to be a psychic and reported a mass grave in Texas. Naturally, the woman turned out to be a whack-job and police found nothing.
That's not the first time in the past few months that psychic phenomena has been discussed in the news. Take this genius, for instance: his growing obsession with trying to convince people that psychics are all frauds has become more of an entertaining point for some. It's almost as if he's trying to convince himself that ESP isn't real. What's more, he obviously looks for reasons to insert celebrity psychics into his parade of skeptical buzz words when they have nothing to do with the story at hand. Surely he's trying to push his own agenda on those who are seeking substance behind the catchy headlines.
And then there are all the Nancy Drew Psychics, who blog their so-called visions publicly -- even when the topic is surrounding sensitive issues like the disappearance of Holly Bobo. What kind of self-respecting and credible psychic would publicly blog and announce that they've envisioned the young girl dead in a pond without even so much as trying to contact the family formally first? The answer is simple. They're fakes.
Does that mean that all psychics are fake? Absolutely not. In fact contrary to what some misinformed individuals might have you believe, ESP has been tested extensively with a lot of positive and neutral results. The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology is publishing a study this year that will show strong evidence that supports the credibility of ESP (Extra Sensory Perception).
People like this Benjamin Radford character for Discovery News like to claim that psychics have never contributed to solving crimes, and he drags notable psychics' names in the mud, like Carla Baron. Carla Baron starred in Haunting Evidence on TruTv and has worked for years as a trusted psychic profiler. Recently she's gotten some attention for her correspondence with the family of Holly Bobo, who went missing from Darden, Tennessee in April. The family cut off communication with Baron on the advice of the TBI, but she could've lent an experienced mind to the case, at the least.
Not only do people like Radford and other skeptics scoff at famous psychics' names they also blatantly lie to try to gain supporters for their ideals. Claiming that no psychic has ever helped in a missing persons case or other crime is downright false.
It's a lie, plain and simple.
Col. Irvin Smith of Wilmington Police Dept. stated on camera that psychic detective Nancy Myer "made an outstanding contribution to law enforcement," after she was able to directly help apprehend a serial rapist in Delaware. With her gift she was able to lead police direct to the man's residence and even got a confession out of the jackass. She was not paid for her services.
A publicity shy psychic led police directly to a suspected child killer back in the 1970s.
Dr. Luren Thibodeau helped Cumru Township Police solve a cold-case murder, including bringing the suspect to justice.
These are just a small fraction of the large number of actual cases that have been solved either directly or indirectly due to a psychic's visions or tips. It's best to research and find for yourselves that although there are charlatans and frauds out there, there are actually individuals who have the clarity to see things others can't. The use of psychics in criminal investigations isn't rare, and usually it's helpful. At least more helpful than sitting there doing nothing while cases go cold.
