Circular Times and Silvia Browne

Circular Times and Silvia Browne

I just wanted to post notice that Circular Times has been down for 5 days due to my server crashing - the back system failed too and they are trying to correct this, but as of now have no time that they will get the sites back up. So, yes, this is frustrating, but, out of my control and wanted to let people know that I am still publishing, and all Circular Times sites are down until further notice from my web service provider. I have just been notified that I would be able to at least ftp a new index with text on it to post notice. Sorry about this, thanks, Colette

Silvia Browne:
Also, I wanted to post on Silvia Browne. I saw her on the Montel program a few weeks ago. She is to be a psychic lady and has shows I guess. I do not know much about her. However, parents stood up to ask her how their young daughter died and she with out pause, said their daughter was shot in the chest with a gun. Both parents looked shocked and faced each other with an expression on their face like, WTF? Both parents started speaking at Silvia saying their daughter was in her bedroom and just fell down and died, there was no gun shot. Silvia said then with no pause, but with stutter, uh, uh, she got shot in the chest , like hit, a hit to the chest and had heart failure. Again, both parents looked at each other and were in shock. Mean time Montel steps in to this mess and says, young students die after they have been hit in the heart playing sports at school and she must have been hit by a basketball or something like that. Then Silvia starts up with, yes, yes, she was playing sports and got hit in the chest........both parents said no to this, but, Silvia did not back down and was very arrogant and said their daughter died by getting a hard blow to her chest and she had heart failure - or something like that. But, no autopsy revealed any heart complications evidently because the parents were not told about any heart condition - and kept saying no to Silvia and were not too happy looking with what they were experiencing. I thought this was very bad and I wondered who this person was. I looked her up on the internet to read about her fraudulent cases of , hey, I know what happened to your dead loved ones. Also, I read about her high dollar counseling sessions of telling people what they were in their past life and who their angels are- which of course , none of that can be tested. I then remembered about the million dollar challenge and Randi - that he was out to stop cons like this. I then understood what he was talking about, as what I witnessed on TV was very wrong and it was obvious to me that this woman was blatant in her unknowingness and shrewd in her ways to cover up her faults.

It gets me upset to think of her, and to think of how people like her create airs that encourage skeptics to exploit all of the wrong about clairvoyance. I have had clairvoyance since I was a small child. I have helped people with missing persons, I have helped people with their healing, I have many things that I have been able to help people with that have been proven to be truthful. Only one time was I given 60 dollars for my efforts. I never opened up a practice of charging people for me doing what ever it is that happens. I was known about through word of mouth and most of the time things would just happen and be spontaneous. If I knew some one wanted me to spend time with them, I would relax and try to get calm and remove any of my expectations or thoughts on my mind and just let what ever feelings or impressions come in. I would always tell the person that what ever I am saying I do not know if it is correct or not and to just figure it out on their own after they have spent time with me and I have said what I had to say.

I understand more about what Randi is trying to stop, I may not agree with his methodology, but, I also do not agree with people like Silvia Browne and others who post websites offering services as such to vulnerable people and charging so much money. I know it takes time, but, I feel if a person truly has the gift of clairvoyance, then it should be given freely to help others and never be exploited or a person to feel better than another or to be used in any bad ways at all. People like Silvia Browne who go on television and exploit themselves in ways that are shameful, shame all of those who do have gifts and create the skeptic mentality. I personally think that it is best to just give freely and lay low and just let what ever happens - happen, and not try to promote one's self in any manner for attention or gainful employment. But, then that is the way I feel- as I always say on weird matters such as this, I may be wrong though.

I too can see the records...I know whereof you speak but mine is of the cyclic type. I see large-scale events over vast reaches of time. It sickens me to see us drifting to the abyss once again. Hey, it is the biggest game in town.

People should be cautious of all those false prophets that promess the keys to Paradise... with just a little charge to your Visa.

That's why all those ads of psychics and healers that flood the back pages of Fortean magazines make me kind of sick.

If God or the Universe or whatever grants people with those kinds of gifts, I'm sure it wasn't so they could buy a Porsche. Also, from what I understand of this phenomena, the gift is inconstant and fickle, it cannot be presumed to function like a slot machine, something folks would expect if they pay good money for the services of these "professionals".

Maybe there ought to be some sort of NGO that certificates these people, and one fo the things that should remove certification would be if they charge people for their services.

That or an examination, like the ones they apply at Hogwarts ;-)

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

Hello Red and Oscar - other folks----
Quote from Red.....
"Also, from what I understand of this phenomena, the gift is inconstant and fickle......."

This has been true for me. I do not know when or where it will happen, I also do not know things are precognitive until it happens. I do see things in people, I have been known to move objects, poltergeist things happen, lots of weird stuff, but, I do not know really how to explain it. I can some times feel more in "tune" one might say, but, when with another person, I think it might depend on how energetic their particular aura is, as in vibrations, that my own brain some how picks up. I can relax, but, really, it is not too controllable - never really know if what I am doing is correct or not, but, at times it feels very correct and just as if it is my own personal memory or image of an event in my life.

I have noticed that since I had allergic problems with my last medication, I have lost a couple of rounds of double digits in my IQ level it seems and I am more forgetful - absent minded - I also have noticed that I do not feel those moments of being in "tune" as often and I am having less synchronistic moments. So, I wonder about brain waves and neuro transmitters and electrical functions of the brain and side effects of meds - how they affect the brain and the part ( which ever it is ) that has to do with "spirit."

I have always wondered how our brain works and what part of it is spirit and all knowingness, how do we initialize and activate the functions necessary for processes and occurrences that happen that would be referred to as para-normal or preternatural. I think bio-science has come a little way in understanding how the brain functions in some aspects, but, little in the realm of the para-normal. I also do not know if science as known and defined as of now, as in modern times, is the appropriate way to meter the para-normal.

The Silvia Browne's in the world maybe serve a function to those who are gullible and need to have sensationalism in their life - as in those who still just must think there is a "Face on Mars" or that Egypt is Atlantis with Tesla aliens. But, for those who are seeking truth, people like her are a deterrent I feel, and cause more harm then good to the common cause.

For some reason I am able to play tricks on myself. I often find my keys, watches, hats, money and other possessions in the oddest places. I now realize that I have a mean four-year old left over from my youth who plays games with its older host. At least that is what my wife tells me.

I think you just follow a sophisticated system of using storage space. And you even do that without having to pay attention.

You put things where there is room within arm's length. This saves a lot of time when storing objects.

Then for retrieval of stored objects, you use an equally sophisticated method. It is called "exhaustive search", meaning you search the whole house until you find the object, or until you are exhausted from searching. This is a very reliable method.

if everything is under control, you are not going fast enough (Mario Andretti)

it's not how fast you go, it's who gets there first

I've happily used this system for years now, since the number of my possessions reached a critical mass. It's random, alternate joys and frustrations provide me with a good simulation of having a life.
