  • Mediumship is defined as the practice of certain people —known as mediums—to mediate communication  between spirits of the dead and other human  beings. While no evidence has been accepted by the  scientific community in support of the view that there has  been communication between the living and the dead,  some parapsychologists  say that some of their research  suggests that such communication may have taken place.  The practice is associated with several religious belief  systems such   as  spiritualism , voodoo, spiritism,  Espiritismo etc. 
  • From left to right: Madam Helena Blavatsky, Daniel Dunglas Home, and Jeane Dixon. Some famous psychics 
  • Nostradamas: Born Michel de Nostredame in 1503,  Nostradamas was an apothecary who had hundreds of  visions of the future. He recorded his prophecies and  catalogued more than 6,000 of them. His collected  prophecies, titled Les Prophecies, have rarely been out  of print since they were first published in 1555. During  his lifetime he endured public scorn and hatred --  many people believed his predictions to be the work  of the devil -- but several famous figures of the day,  including Catherine Medici of the powerful Florentine  family the Medicis, were supporters.  
  • Madam Helena Blavatsky: Blavatsky was a major  player in the 19th century spiritualist movement.  Blavatsky founded the Theosophical Society, which  fused mysticism and spiritualism. She also claimed to  have psychic powers, and regularly held seances to  communicate with the dead. Blavatsky established a  Theosophical center in Madras, India, that still stands  today, and many of her ideas influenced later  spiritualist movements -- including our current day  New Age cultural practices. 
  • Daniel Dunglas Home: A contemporary of Madam  Blavatsky, Home was renowned for his ability to  psychically move furniture, call up noises and spirits,  and levitate. Just 18 when his career as a psychic  began, Home's talents were notable because he could  channel spirits through his body (both verbally and in  a trance-like state), and also predict the future and  reveal secrets from the past. Word of his talents  spread across Europe, and he was called to hold  séances for both Napoleon III and Queen Sophia of  the Netherlands. 
  • Edgar Cayce: Born in 1877, Cayce was known as "The  Sleeping Prophet," because many of his prophecies  would come to him as dreams. He would enter a sleep  state and not recall what he'd said or done while in it.  Cayce himself was skeptical of his own abilities, and  recommended that seekers only take into account  advice that would improve their lives. He also  purportedly helped heal the sick (One famous story  involves a woman who was charged with having  hysteria. Cayce was able to divine that she actually  had a rotting tooth that was causing her pain -- and if  removed, her symptoms would abate. They did). 
  • Jeane Dixon: Jeane Dixon was the stage name of  Lydia Emma Pinckert, a well-known astrologer and  psychic who famously predicted the assasination of  John F. Kennedy seven years before it occurred.  Dixon's predictions and prognostications were  followed by several notable figures, including Richard  Nixon and Nancy Reagan. Her horoscopes were  widely published and syndicated in newspapers across  the country before her death in 1997.

  • Transmigration -the passage of a soul after death into another body; metempsychosis The passing of souls into successive bodily forms, either human or animal. According to Pythagoras, who probably learned the doctrine in Egypt, the rational mind , after having been freed from the chains of the body, assumes an ethereal vehicle, and passes into the region of the dead, where it remains till it is sent back to this world to inhabit some other body, human or animal. After undergoing successive purgations, and when it is sufficiently purified, it is received among the gods, and returns to the eternal source from which it first proceeded. This doctrine was foreign to Judaism until about the eighth century,when, under the influence of the Mohammedan mystics, it was adopted by the Karaites and other Jewish dissenters.
  • psychic a person who claims to have an ability to perceive information hidden from the normal sensesthrough extrasensory perception (ESP), or who is said by others to have such abilities
  •  Ouija Board The term "talking board" is the generic name for a message board with numbers, letters, and a movable message indicator. The message indicator, touched lightly by one or more persons, slides or pivots along the surface of the board to spell out words. Hence, the name "talking board." There is debate about whether the messages come from supernatural entities or are some form of psychological phenomenon originating from the players. Boards using pendulums, fixed spinners, or rolling balls, are not technically "talking boards" although they may have the same effect. Talking boards are also referred to as Ouija boards, witch boards, spirit boards, oracle boards, and most recently, channeling boards. The name "Ouija" is a registered trademark for Parker Brothers' William Fuld Talking Board Set.

  • Tarot card The Tarot is a deck of cards that originated over 500 years ago in northern Italy. Although the Tarot was first used in a game calledTriumphs, it was quickly adopted as a tool for divination, and popularized by occult societies such as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The early Tarot symbolism was deeply rooted in Medieval and Renaissance Europe, but over the centuries it has grown to incorporate everything from Astrology and Kabbalah toRunes (which predate the Tarot by 1000 years) and the I Ching(which predates the Tarot by 2500 years). Today, the Tarot is far and away the most popular tool for spiritual introspection in the West
