    Thank you Darren and Richard.
    Many countries spend £$millions on psychic research while denying psychic abilities exist. Christians say its evil, but develop ‘gifts of the spirit’, being psychic abilities. What is ‘speaking in tongues’? What can you tell us about using a water/soap bubble or (crystal? lead?) glass of water as a crystal ball? While ‘fasting’ and detoxing on raw organic vegan smoothies and juices, people do become more psychic – any comments on this please?

      Hi Chris, thanks for writing. I have heard that the USA and Russia have spent a lot of money on psychic research in an attempt to weaponise them. I have not heard military or government representatives acknowledge or deny whether psychic abilities exist, so can’t comment there. There are no doubt some Christians, as in most religions, with extremely close-minded, orthodox views who may say that, but that’s quite a broad brush allegation. I have not personally studied speaking in tongues. You can use virtually any reflective surface when scrying, with still water probably being the oldest method. Through gazing the practitioner awakens their psychic faculties; scrying in this way being just one technique of divination. I haven’t studied whether fasting and detoxing in the way you describe causes people to become more psychic. But I do know that one of the best ways to awaken and develop your psychic powers is to give service to others, and Dr. King specifically calls out spiritual healing as one of the best all-round methods of psychic development. Not only that but service to others is the best reason to develop your psychic powers in the first place. Best, Darren
