    I struggle with this channelling business but you do sense things though. Haven’t you ever experienced sensing/foreseeing something that in retrospect you had no reason to presume?

    I think remnants of energy can be perceived, particularly (guessing now) if in the vicinity of recent turbulence. (Get behind the wheel of a car someone has just driven very fast, you can feel it – weird phenomenon. You don't need to be especially "tuned in" as fas as I can tell.) When it is perceived I think the medium decides it must be messages from some other side (for me the concept doesn’t support any kind of rationale not based in fiction) as a means of possibly explaining it to him/herself and the rest of us.

    If the spiritual entity of a deceased person could be communicated with I would think their interests would have shifted a great deal from when they were encumbered with a body and bills to pay. I don’t know how interested they would be in the petty foibles of the living now that they’ve escaped our cupboard.

    Apologies all. Just found out today that this car thing is not a commonly experienced thing. Maybe I’m really dead and just don’t know it.

    This whole story is just really sad, although part of me thinks that if she's got so much comfort from it then who cares.

    I care because those who run seances, channeling sessions, & similar scams collect money from grieving folks.

    They are predators & those who are scammed very often discover they have been duped.

    Arthur Conan Doyle (author of Sherlock Holmes stories) had a son who died in WW1. He was taken by scam artists who claimed to be able to establish communication between him & his son. When he realized he was a mark for con artists, he turned to folks like my grandmother.

    My grandmother was a believer in the Spiritualist religion which was a Christian religious sect whose services were similar to seances.

    She & others in that faith were sincere & not out to scam anybody. Unfortunately they gave credence to charlatans who were con artists.

    Asimov once said
    The beliefs change over periods of centuries, but the amount of belief in nonsense is constant.

    In the distant past, they cast runes. Not sure what these were: Bones? Rocks? Pieces of wood?

    Also in the distant past, there was the Oracle of Delphi, who might have been a faker or might have been a mentally disturbed woman who had hallucinations which were interpreted by either sincere shamans or con artists.

    Circa 200 years ago, there were the Salem Witch trials: Unfortunate women accused of witch craft by malevolent or hallucinatory teenage girls.

    Now we have seances, fortune tellers, & tarot card readers as well as Ouija Boards.

    Don't forget religion in general.
