Alex Tsakiris: [00:00:06] Welcome to Skeptiko where we explore controversial science and spirituality with leading researchers, thinkers and their critics. I’m your host Alex Tsakiris and as many of you know, one of the goals of this show is to push past the stuck on stupid discussion around extended consciousness, and that’s really where science has pushed us, hasn’t it? I mean, let’s take past life regression for example, science would, of course, dismissed the entire phenomenon with a wave of the hand and maybe a little gibberish about extraordinary claims, require extraordinary proof. Worse yet, we’d be told, as we often are, that it’s actually a scam, perpetrated by greedy new agers, who are looking to exploit the weak and the gullible. So how do we push past that blockade that the pseudo skeptics have built?
Well, first of all, I’d suggest that you need the right kind of guest, and I’m thinking and hoping that we might have just that kind of guest today. Kathy Mingo is a psychic and a medium in the UK. She specializes in past life regression and shamanic healing work. She’s going to tell us what that means. She comes to us highly recommended by our friend Claire Broad, who documents her own rather amazing experience with Kathy in her new book. And as a special bonus, as Kathy and I were just chatting about, Kathy has been brave enough and open enough to agree to do…
Kathy Mingo: [00:01:41] Or stupid enough.
Alex Tsakiris: [00:01:45] But she has agreed to try and do some kind of demonstration. I don’t know how it’s going to turn out. She’d never done anything like this. We’re not like trying to test her in any way, because she said, “I’ve never done anything like that,” but I thought since her work is kind of unusual and unique, that just to give people, to give all of you and me, a sense for what it’s about, we might do a demonstration.
So with all that, Kathy welcome to Skeptiko and thank you so much for joining me.
Kathy Mingo: [00:02:13] Well, thanks Alex. I’m thanks for having me and hi to everyone at Skeptiko that’s listening in.

Alex Tsakiris: [00:02:19] Well great, awesome. You know, as I explained to you, I kind of have evolved into playing this little game that I call Skeptiko Jeopardy.
Kathy Mingo: [00:02:32] Fabulous
Alex Tsakiris: [00:02:34] And this one, since my introduction was kind of limited, I think the natural place to start is with you. Who is Kathy Mingo?
Kathy Mingo: [00:02:46] Okay. Well, I’m just a very ordinary person that just happens to do what some people call an extraordinary job. I don’t think it is. I just think what I do is very natural. I do need to put a caveat in, I don’t actually call myself a medium, but when I’m in someone’s auric field, so that’s what I would do. I work through someone’s bioplasmic aura field. So the energy around the body or the aura and just as a by-product, sometimes, well, quite often, people that have passed over come in to say hello. So it’s literally, it’s a byproduct of what I do.
