I read a book that I ended up being quite emotional about. It is called Lily Dale : The true story of the town that talks to the dead
Lily Dale is 60 miles south of Buffalo New York near inner state 90. It is a peaceful Victorian town. From the pictures I saw it is run down but still very beautiful .I call them little Ginger bread houses. The people there are very different but seem so accepting. It seems to be the place to go to eliminate the grief from trying to fit in. People seem to accept you for who you are. It is a very old town founded in 1879.
There are healers, spiritualists and physics who live there. I believe in such things sometimes. I know there are Charlatans out there who will do or say anything for money even if it means hurting someone. Whether these people are real or fake, they bring hope to others who are suffering. I don't know if I am a believer of psychics or healers etc. But I do believe in the power of the mind. This is why good attitude is important. I believe your mind is so powerful that it can heal. In some cases if you believe it to be true, then it becomes true.
I don't consider myself a true spiritualists but I do believe in the after life. I do believe in spirits. I have seen it for myself. I have been reading into it and I believe in some of it. I don't believe in tarot cards or runes or anything like that. But I do believe in herbal medicine and the power of the mind.
I have been reading alot about religions and things lately to keep my mind busy. It has been quite informative. My favorite is this book. It was well written and kept my attention.
Mae West visited the town in her day quite often. She went to see a medium there. Houdini went there often, they say. But he was a critic who went there to debunk them. Sir Arthur Conin Doyle visited there often. John Edwards did a speech there.
I am planning to visit there this summer.The town is within an hour or so from me.I love old historic towns. I have to admit that I am a bit curious to see what they do there. The town seems so peaceful and serine. I need some Peace in my life right now.
The book was really good. It was written in a skeptics tone. I enjoyed the stories and description of the town lost in time. It was very interesting. I thought I would share it with everyone. I hop everyone is having a safe and happy weekend.
Blessings to all
