History of American Psychic Readers

March 16th, 2006

America was founded on the idea of freedom of religious and spiritual expressions. The psychic realm is a part of the religious and spiritual world, and so, our psychic history is intertwined with our religious and spiritual history. Our American psychic freedom was founded right along with our religious and spiritual freedoms.

On the 31st March, 1848, The Fox Sisters, two young girls, made a break through with contacting the entity who had been disturbing the family with strange sounds and activities. They heard spirit rapping’s inside the walls of their home. They began communicating with the dead. The Hydesville Knockings in the United States of America lead to the investigation of the Mediumship of the Fox sisters and the birth of modern Spiritualism. These two psychic readers became well known all over America. When his son had died in 1852, President Pearce invited the Fox Sisters-psychic readers, to the White House to hold a private séance. Séances were held in the White House on a regular basis.

President Lincoln’s son William died at the age of 11. His wife Mary Todd hired a medium Nedy Colburn , who led several séances in the white house. One day President Lincoln was looking in the mirror and he say two faces looking back at him, one face was clear and the other was shattered. Mary Todd said this meant his first term would go well but in his second term something bad would happen. President Lincoln also had a dream. In his dream he heard weeping going on so he follows the sounds into a room where he sees several men around a coffin. He asks a solider by the coffin who it is that has died. The soldier answers it is the president who was kill by an assassin. Soon after, Lincoln’s dream became a reality, when on April 14th, 1865 John Wilkes Booth murdered the president at the Ford Theatre.

General Grant’s wife also had a premonition that something bad was going to happen to her husband at the theatre that night. She warned her husband not to go with the Lincoln’s and he decided not to go. It was later discovered that General Grant’s name was also on the list of names John Wilkes booth was planning to assassinate. After President Lincoln’s death there were many reports of his spirit moving around the White House.

James Martin Peebles (1822 – 1922) known as ‘the spiritual pilgrim’ as he enthusiastically spread his philosophy through his writings and travels around the United States and the world. Himself a medium/psychic reader was surrounded by what he called his “band of angels” from whom he received inspiration and spiritual guidance.

Mark Twain had a vivid dream in 1858 in which he saw his brother’s death. He saw his brother in a metal casket with flowers on his chest; the casket was sitting atop two chairs. His brother had worked on the steamship Pennsylvania. Two days after the dream the Pennsylvania exploded and his brother died, 150 people were killed. All the others who had died had pine coffins but his brother had a metal casket purchased by two unknown women. When Mark Twain went to see his brother and walked into the room where the casket was laying, it was sitting atop two chairs. As he was standing there a woman came in and place the same flowers in the casket Mark had seen in the dream, white flowers with a single red rose. Everything in his dream had come true.

Twain also publicly announced to the world the coming of his own death. He said, “I came into the world with Haley’s comet in 1835, and now it is coming again next year and I will go out with it.” April 20th 1910, he died the next day.

Towards end of 19th century, 1885 Harvard Psychologist William James started the American Society of Psychic Research.
