Celebrity clairvoyant challenges sceptics to open their minds

TOP American medium John Edward, who is touring Australia, has issued a message to sceptics. He says that while welcoming challenges, doubters should be prepared to open their minds.

John has worked with A-list celebrities including chat show host Oprah Winfrey, and appeared on radio and TV, and in print.

The medium told a journalist “We’re living at a time where people’s critical thinking skills need to be really sharpened and addressed because of whatever the latest AI thing that’s happening or just social media.

“I think it’s really important for people to go ‘Hey, wait. I’m not sure. Let me see what kind of validation is there’.”

Though he welcomes scepticism “as long as we can have a conversation about it,” John has his limits. He added “When somebody pushes a little bit too much more, then I have to push back. I have to be like ‘Woah – you can’t define me. You don’t know me’.”

The only child of New York City police officer Jack McGee and office manager Perinda Esposito, John moved in with his grandmother after his parents’ divorce. This was when he became immersed in the paranormal and his psychic journey began.

John “never wanted to be on TV. It was an opportunity that came as a by-product of my work.”       
John “never wanted to be on TV.
It was an opportunity that came
as a by-product of my work.”

“Dad forbade that sort of thing,” John explained. “He didn’t like it. But when Mum and I moved into my grandmother’s house, I was exposed to it.” At first, he was also sceptical until medium Lydia Clar gave him a convincing sitting. She told him “You have highly evolved beams of white and gold light around you and I’m going to put you on your path. You’re going to change the way millions of people feel about my field.”

John dismissed the prediction, but things soon fell into place. Now 54, the medium told a reporter for Australia’s ABC News “I had two different identities. It was like Clark Kent and Superman.

“By day I was a student and phlebotomist, and by night I was the psychic two different worlds.”

People started to ring the hospital switchboard where he worked asking for sittings during his lunch hour. John finally became a full-time medium in the mid-1990s and knew he would have to face critics.

“I don’t really care,” he said. “It’s the thick-skinned thing you have to have when you make the choice to do this.”

John “never wanted to be on TV. It was an opportunity that came as a by-product of my work.”

The medium rose to international fame in 2001 with his TV programme Crossing Over, in which he communicated with “dead” relatives of audience members.

John’s website says it was “the first television show syndicated worldwide devoted to mediumship and would go on to run for four seasons.”

Five years later, it was followed by John Edward Cross Country, which ran for three seasons.

He has since launched an online community named Evolve. Members pay an annual fee of $99.00 (£82.00) to have access to John’s ongoing series of podcasts, guidance and guest mediums with a chance to interact.

As if expecting criticism, the website says “As much as I would like to create it for free, it’s not something that I can realistically afford to do in the way that I want to do it. So, ‘Yes!’ there is a charge if you want to join and ‘No!’ you don’t have to.”

      “Once the soul evaporates from the body, it kind of resides on a different plane of consciousness.”
“Once the soul evaporates from the body, it kind
of resides on a different plane of consciousness.”

John was due to commence his Australian tour by demonstrating at the State Theatre in Sydney before heading to Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra.

He told Amy Martin of The Canberra Times he finds it interesting when people “paint the audience as being stupid and gullible.

“It’s such a disrespectful thing to basically say, ‘You’re stupid because you’re going to that event, bought that book and believe that thing’.”

A Roman Catholic with a solid belief system, he respects atheists as “For the most part, they don’t push their beliefs, or lack of them, on others.

“The same can’t always be said for those who have a religious faith or people who don’t believe in psychics.”

Convinced in the existence of an afterlife, he added “There is another dimension. Once the soul evaporates from the body, it kind of resides on a different plane of consciousness.

“Where are Facebook and the internet We know they exist; we just can’t go there.”

John lives on Long Island, New York with his wife Sandra and their two children.

When he passes, “I hope that my kids and grandchildren will mourn the physical loss of me, but yet know that I’m still connected to them in some way. That to me would be the greatest legacy.”
