Psychic Abilities & Christmas Symbolism

Date: 12-16-11
Host: John B. Wells
Guests: Mark Anthony, Open Lines

Filling in for George Noory, John B. Wells (email) welcomed lawyer and medium Mark Anthony for a discussion on his psychic abilities and work with spirits. Anthony revealed that he was born into a family with psychic abilities, and could see spirits from a very young age—an ability also shared by his parents. Anthony said he eventually embraced his mediumship and went on to study the topic of evidential mediumship at a formal educational institution. He defended his practice against those who would use the Bible to condemn it, noting that several biblical characters, including Joseph and Elijah in the Old Testament and Jesus in the New Testament, demonstrated what appears to be psychic medium powers. "We are all instruments of the will of God," he added.

Anthony spoke about the esoteric elements behind various Christmas traditions, such as the Star of Bethlehem. Two thousand years ago, adept astrologers known as Magi observed and tracked a unique alignment of planets in the constellation of Aeries, he explained. This astrologically significant event occurred on April 17, 6 B.C., will never happen again, and signaled the birth of a divine king in the region of Judea, Anthony noted. In 350 A.D., Pope Julius I declared that the birth of Christ would be celebrated in the month of December to supplant Roman pagan festivals, he added. Anthony also discussed the significance of the gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh given to the Christ child, as well as how holly wreaths are symbols of eternal life. It represents the crown of thorns worn by Jesus at his crucifixion, with the red berries signifying his blood, so in a mystical sense the holly wreath is the gateway to eternal life, he said.

Open Lines followed in the final hour.
