Today is Uposatha Day. And this is a true story that I saw on TV talkshow. Today, I found her story that I
would like to share with you all.
The notion of people with psychic powers has always been of interest to many of
us, so when we learned that an author, a woman who has had a US television
series based on her life, was visiting Australia, the ABC jumped at the
opportunity to speak with her.
Allison Dubois is a native of Phoenix, Arizona, where she was born in 1972.
Her early life was in many respects unspectacular. Her parents divorced when she
was a baby.
Despite some early setbacks, Allison graduated from Arizona State University
with BA in Political Science and Minors in History.
What sets Allison Dubois apart from countless other individuals is that she
discovered when she was very young that she had psychic abilities, which
eventually led her to become a professional medium, and a `profiler', helping
police and law authorities solve baffling cases.
Her `gift' includes the ability to predict future events, to see into people's
minds, to detect health problems in the living and to communicate with the dead.
In her own words "Yes, I do see dead people everywhere..."
Allison was asked about making those distinctions in people with psychic ability
– clairvoyance and clairaudience, or psychokinesis, asking what the sensations
she received were like, and how her abilities manifested themselves.
She replied saying that sometimes she sees people `as if they were right there
beside her', while at other times she heard voices, and on occasions smelt a
perfume, or recognized a characteristic scent that came from `the other side'.
Allison was asked how she knew there was life after death and how she could be
so positive about `the other side', and her frank reply was clear and to the
She has been `dealing with disembodied souls and human energies' from beyond the
grave since she could remember, and simply knows her experiences to be true.
Allison has also been extensively tested by a number of different investigation
teams in scientific conditions and in controlled laboratory examinations, all of
which proved her psychic abilities with standout results.
She claims to have had her first strange experience, which was meeting her
grandfather after he had died, at only six years of age.
An event when she was eleven would shape her future path and the work that she
One day when she was out riding her bike in her home neighbourhood in Pheonix,
two young men attempted to entice her into the car they were driving.
Allison was alone on the street, realised she didn't know the men, and was
terrified and frozen with shock.
She says a voice suddenly startled her out of her immobile state by ordering her
to get away as fast as possible, telling her to ride her bike home as quickly as
Soon after, a number of attacks against children and unsolved child abductions
in her home state made her realize that she had been saved by one of her
`guardians' or `guides', and that she had had a lucky escape from a situation
that could have seen her hurt, molested, or perhaps ever murdered.
Allison says this realization changed the course of her life, although she
didn't fully understand it at the time, but the seed had been sown to allow her
to channel her abilities to help prevent crime, or to solve crimes `in which
children had been made targets by depraved and evil people'.
Allison reveals her views on specific cases that brought her a level of
credibility within policing and crime detection agencies, when she was invited
to work with Texas Rangers in solving disappearances and cases of abductions.
She found, when looking at photographic evidence, that she could glean
information from the perpetrator's viewpoint, picturing places they had been and
locating specific sites where crimes had been committed.
Allison points out that she has never accepted any payment for her services in
any of the cases she has helped solve, and always works with the prosecution to
ensure that violent and sociopathic individuals are put away.
She merely attempts to reveal things unknown to police, in the form of names,
locations, licence plate numbers, or smells or other sensory stimuli that are
associated with crimes and criminal behaviour.
Allison says that being a medium and a crime profiler is not a specific science,
it is more a matter of receiving pictures, sounds, images and often disjointed
information that comes from other minds, whether dead or alive.
She also insists on only taking on a limited number of such cases per year, as
the effort required takes its toll, physically and emotionally, from her.
Allison said that we are never alone, and we are under the watchful eyes of past
relatives who are deceased and who have been significant in our lives, and a
number of others who are often referred to as `angels' or, more simply, our
