Does anyone have strong views either way on this subject?
The reason I ask is because my mum went to one of these shows tonight and came home convinced the medium had communicated with her deceased mum (my gran, of course) she, like me, was a complete sceptic until a couple of years ago when her friend convinced my mum to go along with her to a private reading and I have to admit, even I was baffled by what she had said, but thats for another day.
Basically what she said happened tonight was the medium did the whole "almost saying my name but not quite" thing, saying Shirley, Sherry (my mums name is Sheryl) but she didn't say anything so the medium moved on.....and then came back and said "no wait, it's not that, it's Sheryl - and she has ties to TOM and DEVON" well my brother is called Tom and my grandparents lived in Devon their whole lives and my mum grew up there. She then said how my gran really loves her etc and says thanks for the memorial bench, she really appreciated it (my mum got her a memorial bench on the seafront where she lived when she died as they owned shops in the village and were known to everyone so she wanted something for all her friends)
To be honest, I've very sceptical on this subject but the best I could come up with was they knew her name as she ordered the tickets with the seat number, and maybe there were people in the queue posing as others going to the show collecting snippets of info, but she insists she didn't speak to anyone the whole night apart from her friend.
opinions either way?
