About the Florida Academy of Psychical Sciences
The Florida Academy of Psychical Sciences is a professional, academic association whose purpose is to advance the field of psychical research. We were formally established in 2006. We are a group of distinguished parapsychologists and researchers. We concern ourselves with the study of ghosts, spirits, unexplained phenomena that are collectively considered “paranormal” in nature. We prefer to use the term “anomalies” rather than “paranormal” as the usage of the term “paranormal” assumes that such activity cannot be scientifically explained. Just because it hasn’t been scientifically explained, does not mean that it cannot be. The areas of our study includes: near death experiences, premonitions, spontaneous healing, clairvoyance, divination, communication with spirits.
We do not train anyone in the development of psychic abilities. Rather, the Florida Academy of Psychical Sciences conducts research into the realm of the unconscious mind and the possibility of life after death. We provide educational opportunities by way of special events, lectures, workshops, and literature . Our members make themselves available for consultation to the news media, radio and television show producers, students and teachers.
Membership is obtained by application or by recommendation by a current member only.
If you believe that you are experiencing “paranormal “ activity, and would like services from our organization, please understand the following: 1. We have a strict confidentiality policy. Your case will never be publically discussed unless you consent to it. 2. If you have previously worked with another “paranormal research” group and they have gathered what they believe to be evidence, we will require that we conduct our own independent research. 3. Upon our own findings during our initial research and interview process, we reserve the right to decline to take a case.
If you are a psychic or a medium interested in joining our association, please know that :
1. We do not accept mediums looking to use our organization as a way to gain paying clients.
2. Any and all work is done solely on a volunteer basis.
3. We have an application and screening process to maintain the integrity of this organization and we require valid references pertaining to your psychic abilities or a recommendation from a current member of our society. We are highly interested in those with a demonstrated ability of clairvoyance.
4. We do not use any type of bartering system here IE: if we refer clients to you, then you offer to give our members free or discounted readings. That is unacceptable to us. Give the amateur ghost hunting groups a call with that offer. Not us.
The Florida Academy of Psychical Sciences members who are ordained ministers, which allows us, when deemed necessary to conduct cleansings and exorcisms. A word of caution: there are many amateur “paranormal” groups who claim to also perform exorcisms. To do so is beyond the scope of paranormal investigation. This requires special training and without it, can be dangerous for both exorcist and the client.
As you read the information presented on our website, you may choose to believe all of it, some of it or you may also choose not to believe any of it. That is entirely up to you. We only request that you keep an open mind. It is on that middle ground that this organization operates.
