In 1884, the College of Psychic Studies was founded in London, UK. The college offers lectures and courses for developing psychic abilities in different areas such as psychic healing, spiritual development and counselling. They also offer consultations with psychic healers and psychic readers. Its founders were interested in psychic research and proving the existence of life after death.
The UK is a good place for investigating ghosts or visiting ancient sites. There are many old houses, castles, churches and priories which are said to be haunted. There are many ideal locations for practicing or developing psychometry skills. Visit an old building or old battle scene and wander round seeing what impressions you pick up.
There are ancient sites like the stones at Avebury or Stonehenge which are said to have ancient religious connotations - possibly pagan rituals were carried out there.
Interest in psychic phenomena in the UK continues today. There are psychic readers available who do psychic readings in a variety of ways; one of the more popular is using tarot cards. Paganism and Wicca practices continue. Horoscopes are published in lifestyle magazines and tabloid newspapers. Celebrities and royals consult psychics on a regular basis.
Spiritualism, the belief in life after death, is alive and well in the UK. There are many thriving Spiritualist churches around the country. Meetings are held where psychic mediums can demonstrate their skills and answer questions. Ask in your local new age shop about Spiritualist meetings in your area.
