YOU BELIEVE IN THE DEVIL?
No. Our religion is not based on a
Savior-God philosophy. Our theology does not embrace “falling
from grace” or “sinning.” Therefore, we do not believe in
a devil. We believe we alone are responsible for the benefits or
consequences of our actions.
YOU BELIEVE IN HEAVEN AND HELL?
Yes, but not in the
traditional sense. They are not places or abodes but rather states
of consciousness. Heaven and hell can literally be experienced
right here on earth.

WITCHCRAFT OR BLACK MAGIC PART OF SPIRITUALISM?
IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PSYCHIC AND A MEDIUM?
Everyone is psychic; it is our sixth sense which utilizes thought
vibrations to obtain information. A Medium has natural vibratory
energies capable of merging with spiritual energy enabling
information and assistance of a higher quality to come through.
This information does not come from mind or mental energy but from
God through Spirit.
IS A READING?
Also referred to as Spiritual counseling, this
service is obtained from a Certified Medium. Spiritualism is a
religion, philosophy and science based on the continuity of life
and communication with those who have made their transition.
Spiritual counseling is achieved by using the ability of the
Medium’s mind to receive, process and deliver messages from the
Higher Spirit Plane, and is a demonstration of Spiritualism. This
is known as mental mediumship. (Psychic science tools such as palm
reading, tarot cards, etc., are not utilized in the Cassadaga
Spiritualist Camp. It is our desire to educate and provide the
highest level of mediumship ministry to all who come seeking. All
Mediums in our organization work as mental and/or healing Mediums.
MEDIUMS TELL ME BAD THINGS OR PREDICT DEATH?
may be brought through from Spirit in an appropriate manner,
especially if it is in the best interest of all concerned. A
professional Spiritualist Medium will strive to bring you the
information received in a positive, constructive manner.
Instilling fear or dazzling you is not the intent or purpose of a
Certified Medium or Minister. Spiritual guidance is offered so
that you may enhance or minimize each situation by use of free
will. Assisting you
in helping yourself is the Medium’s goal.
IS A SEANCE?
Seance is a term referring to a group of people
usually sitting around a table in a darkened room for the
purpose of contacting Spirit. Seances continue to be conducted
but are also referred to as “circles” or Spiritualist
mediumship development classes.
SPIRITUALISM RECOGNIZE OTHER CHURCHES OR RELIGIONS?
respect the right of religious freedom as set forth in the United
States Constitution. Truth is truth regardless of its source, and
right living is the keynote to all religions. Religion is the
process through which one recognizes, understands and demonstrates
their spirituality. Spirituality, living your belief or
understanding, is a way of life, not something applied only to
an hour or a day set aside for worship.

DO I RECEIVE THE OPTIMUM READING?
to familiarize yourself with our Certified Mediums. To
ensure the Medium of your choice is available, please call/email
in advance to schedule your session. Prior to the session,
fee and length of reading is agreed upon between the Medium and
the Client. Money is exchanged at the end of the session.
Any request for additional monies that have not been agreed upon
is cause for concern. A promise of contact with a specific
Spirit is not offered by a SCSCMA Medium because they know that
those in Spirit also have free will and choice. Use common
sense - any advice received, or course of action suggested, must
resonate with you. During the first ten minutes, if you
and/or the Medium feel that there is not a suitable connection,
then suggest that the session ends and no money is exchanged.
