News Flash: He may not be executed this Friday … story here: http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/meast/04/01/saudi.arabia.sorcery/index.html?hpt=T2

Unbelievable talk about irony … the Saudi’s plan on executing a popular television personality (from Lebanon) for having a belief in the supernatural. It appears that as long as you believe in the supernatural stories about Mohammed and Allah that you are okay, but if you believe in any other supernatural events etc., you are a heretic. Frankly this is disgusting and represents a complete lack of basic appreciation for your own history as well as a fear of change. Saudi Arabia while a “modern” country in many respects is also very much in the dark ages. They have nearly no rights for women and continue to stone and behead people for “crimes” against their religion. For all the talk of Islam being a peaceful religion … I must say that there is nothing peaceful about in-equal gender rights and a disregard for peoples rights to worship as they choose and or to study and research anything other than the party line.

This situation reminds me to some extent of my wife’s former faith. She was born into the Jehovah’s Witness faith (cult) and if you attempt to read anything that is not an “official” document prepared by the church, and that offers other viewpoints, insights or a way of thinking, it is simply not permitted. Islam is full of violence … it was spread through the world at the point of a sword and many in the faith endorse stoning a woman for adultery as well as cutting off the hand of a thief. What other “faith” has suicide bombers? I appreciate that some say that Islam is the religion of peace, but from where I stand, there is nothing peaceful about it. If the Catholic priests stood at the pulpit and called for the destruction of those who do not see things the same way as they do or who are different from them i.e. the “infidels” I am sure that we would have an issue as a society, add stoning people and chopping heads off and I am pretty sure that they would be outlawed for inciting violence. Please note that I do not give the Christian faiths a pass here, they too have been responsible for the deaths of millions of people around the globe and Christianity was also spread at the point of a gun or sword for many hundreds of years.

I do have an issue with any closed minded faith where they preach that they are the only way and that all other religions are false. I have issue with people who believe that they are the “chosen” race and with people who believe that miracles only took place during a short time period roughly 2000 years ago … I personally witness miracles (if you want to call them that) on a daily basis. I routinely communicate with the spirits of the deceased as well as with the spirits of living and passed animals and even plants. I suppose that I too would be up for beheading if I was to visit Saudi Arabia.

For the kingdom of Saudi Arabia to execute this man would be a huge step backwards for them. Even in Lebanon where Ali Hussain Sibat is from, the very most they might do to him is sentence him to two months jail time. Frankly the way he was presented on television, it was more entertainment than anything else and to be killed for that by a foreign country is an outrage. He was not even doing “readings” or practicing as a medium or psychic at the time that he was arrested by the Saudi’s he was simply on a religious pilgrimage. By the king of Saudi Arabia allowing this death sentence to be carried out, he will be hurting relations not just with Lebanon, but with the world at large.

I was considering a visit to the middle east, however I think that perhaps it would be best for me to stay as far away as possible. What is happening in Saudi is similar to the Salem Witchcraft Trials that took place during the 1600s. To make matters worse, read this quote from an article I found at NPRs web site.

“Sarah Leah Whitson, the Middle East director at New York-based Human Rights Watch, says the problem is that Saudi Arabia has no specific law governing such crimes.

Instead, judges view people who believe in the supernatural as heretics and often sentence them according to the judges’ own personal training in Sharia, or Islamic law. Whitson says this means anyone could be targeted.” The full article may be found here.

I really am getting tired of closed minded individuals who tell me that their “god” is superior to anything I am aware of and that it is only demons that are pretending to be the spirits of animals and our loved ones. Why is it that people feel a need to kill those who do not agree with their narrow minded version of life and events. Why is it that  those who attempt to study for themselves with material of their own choosing … risk death by doing so. I believe that it is fear and tradition. Fear of the unknown, fear of being wrong, fear of change, fear of (above all things) losing their power over other people.

In many “religions” the man has rights, but the woman does not. In many “faiths” you are forbidden to look at anything that does not support the religion’s ideology. By restricting freedom to study and worship as you choose, the leaders of the religions are able to control the masses through fear and intimidation. My wife was disfellowshipped for a rumored transgression as an 18 year old girl and was summoned to stand in front of her congregations elders and to either repent and toe the party line, or to be banished from the faith. She was banished and her family stopped speaking with her as did nearly all of her friends. Fortunately for her she was able to escape the cult and now lives a much more fulfilling and rewarding life.

Recently I was told by a religious zealot that I had better be sure that what I was doing was genuine, because if not … I would have an eternity to burn in hell and think about it. Why is it that people claim that their faith is full of love and peace and then go around making statements to the opposite effect.

Ali Hussain Sibat is also married with five children … how can Saudi Arabia execute this man with a clean conscience … and taking into consideration that he harmed no one.

One final thought … if it wasn’t for all the oil that we purchase from Saudi Arabia, do you think that we would put up with their human rights violations?

Today while chatting with a potential client for a guided sea glass hunting and beach combing excursion, my “new” (four years now) line of work came up. She immediately said … “you should know who you are chatting with … as a psychic.” and I said, oh … you mean Satan? She said “Yes!” and I told her that she was way off. I told her that I speak with live animals and that I bring understanding, peace and closure to people. She once again said that Satan was the one I was chatting with. As I had a reading coming up for an individual missing a cat in Saudi Arabia, I was forced to cut our spirited conversation short. Here is what followed:

sorry I made you so mad you had to hang up…I  am sure that nothing I could say could change your beliefs…just wanted to say that if I am wrong about what I believe…well then I am just wrong…but…if you’re wrong, you will have an eternity in Hell to think about it…be sure you’re right!

Truth be told, I didn’t hang up so much because I was mad, as I had a reading that I was scheduled to do and I was nearly out of time and exasperated. Right after getting off the phone with you I helped a woman in Saudi Arabia who needed to be connected with her missing cat. A wealth of details were brought through by the cat having the opportunity to communicate with me on a telepathic level. The cat informed me of the circumstances surrounding his disappearance as well as where his home had been. He told me where the vet was that he was last spotted at as well as describing the home that he now lives in, (he was taken in by another family.) Earlier this year I spent 11 days traveling through NC, FL and IL. I was flown to NC by the Humane Society, so that I could headline a fundraiser for them. I will be working with our local branch of the Humane Society this April for the third year in a row.

Everything I do brings peace, understanding, comfort and closure to people. Not once have I dealt with anything that wanted to hurt those who seek out my services. Having always been a very scientific minded person I have never fully embraced that which I did not have personal knowledge and independent verification of and frankly from where I stand, there is absolutely no way that the animals and the spirits that I am capable of communicating with, have proven to me in any way that they are the work of either demons or evil spirits. Oh sure, there are unhappy spirits out there, those who refuse to move on and stay behind as ghosts and they can be very scary to deal with … if you are not capable of seeing who they truly are. By and large what I deal with is live animal communication and communicating with the spirits of our loved ones.

In my personal experience, the universe is full of wonder and mystery we as a species and culture are constantly moving forward … what was once science fiction or heresy is now reality and fact. 500 years ago if I told you that the world was flat you would think that I was right, but if I said it was round, some might want to execute me. Televisions and cell phones are incredible in that information that is not visible to us, can be “grabbed out of thin air” and then turned into music, and moving images etc. … The more I look at things, the way that I (and I am far from being alone) see things, the “God” that is talked about in the Bible is one that I want nothing to do with, if indeed “Satan” is behind everything that I do and countless other animal communicators and psychics, do … the more and more it seems that the two had their names mixed up. The “God” in the Bible is full of vengeance and is one to be feared. What I do (through Satan (according to you)) is to bring peace, understanding, love and closure to people. (Please note this this is said tongue in cheek as I abhor all that is “evil” and supposedly supported and encourage by “Satan” (who I simply do not believe in.))

What I have are not beliefs, what I have is a deep understanding and peace and joy in all of creation through personal and independently verified experiences. When a recent friend passed, I did not mourn their death, rather I celebrated their life and enjoyed communicating with them on a regular basis since the day they passed. While helping a woman with the passing of her cat, I had the opportunity to actually see his soul leave his body and step onto my lap, (I saw the energy of his soul with my naked eye) where he picked up the conversation we had been having just prior to his passing, only moments before. Once he passed, he relayed a very moving story to me about how much he enjoyed a trip with his person where they had gone to Africa. The cat described the trip in great detail including the fact that he loved hunting the giant bugs in the yard at his persons parents house in South Africa. You simply cannot tell me that was “Satan.”

So … while you have a belief in Hell and that what I am doing is simply the “devils” work, I have peace in the knowledge that what I do is genuine and is for the greater good. I assist animals that have no other way of voicing their concerns, I have saved some animals lives with the information provided by them to me. While working as a psychic detective I have led the authorities to the bodies of the missing as well as located missing animals. The information I provide is not vague, typically it is very detailed and direct, such as street names, descriptions of the physical surroundings, information that only the family or authorities can confirm and much more such as dates, ages, descriptions of individuals involved and even names. I also would like to add that no two spirits or animals feel the same, they are all at slightly different frequencies, so that makes it harder to “buy” that it’s all the work of one entity or a group of similar entities, i.e. demons.
I have been wanting to address this very issue for awhile in my blog and so I will be posting this reply to your email.

One last thought … I do not threaten one with an eternity of burning in hell for not believing what I believe and know to be true … chew on that?
Why should “God” resort to fear … (to keep people in line) if one is a God of love?
