Deceptive information through mediums

Other Names:
Deceptive channelling of advice

People claiming paranormal or spiritual sensitivity offer contact with departed spirits and disincarnate entities. The information provided may create dangerous dependency on the part of those seeking it as well as reinforcing delusional beliefs.


Through out history those offering such communication have taken a wide variety of forms ranging from shamanism through to miraculous events. Although a major effort is made to distinguish between the channelling associated with New Age beliefs and the reliance on the ability of Pentacostalist born-again believers to speak prophecies in tongues, the method and the content often bear a strong resemblance in each case.
