I find that attempts to classify or find meaning in such things are often inadequate. For example:rynner said:Remarkably, it now seemed that the medium may have actually predicted the future, and in a much more precise manner than usual. If the medium actually had seen me giving a blood sample at the doctor's then telepathy could not be an explanation, since I did not know that it would happen, and the doctor only decided to do it on the spur of the moment. It's also interesting that there was no great emotional significance to this routine medical proceedure, because although my medical problems were annoying they were not crippling or life threatening.

I have her autobiography, Unfinished Symphonies, as well as two LPs of her compositions. She was the subject of a television documentary in the early 1970s, which must have marked the peak of her fame.

Yes, it was striking how rather cut-glass her accent was compared to her son's when they were both heard on the programme.What came over from the book was that this woman of genteel upbringing was unhappy in the rôle of school dinner-lady which circumstances had forced upon her. Her gift had enabled her to surmount obstacles of gender and class which may have seemed larger than the gap between the living and the dead.
Lily Dale was incorporated in 1879 as Cassadaga Lake Free Association, a camp and meeting place for Spiritualists and Freethinkers. The name was changed to The City of Light in 1903 and finally to Lily Dale Assembly in 1906. The purpose of Lily Dale is to further the science, philosophy, and religion of Spiritualism.
Reading this made me think of the In Search of episode about psychic detectives. This write up on the episode mentions specific people and cases, so it might qualify for what you were looking for:Can anyone cite examples of cases where psychics have successfully aided police via their 'powers'. I've certainly heard of plenty of instances where their help was solicited, offered or requested, but I can't recall a case where they actually succeeded in supplying vital leads. I'm quite open to the fact that this may have happened...
