Fascinating Book: My Passport Says Clairvoyant

Our friend Ruthie Larkin, known as the "Beantown Medium" in the Boston area recommended that we read a book about the life of a clairvoyant from Holland named M. B. Dykshoorn called "My Passport Says Clairvoyant."
   The book was amazing.   Mr. Dykshoorn had an amazing ability to see things beyond the visible. The book explains how he struggled with his gift as a child - as people didn't believe him, questioned him, and he was even thought a troublemaker because he could "see" things that happened elsewhere in people's lives. Children today with this gift or a gift of mediumship are also often mistreated or reprimanded when they're simply telling the truth in what they see, hear and feel beyond the realm of the physical. People can learn from this and acknowledge their children's gifts.
    Mr. Dykshoorn worked with police in Europe and America to find missing persons, re-enact murder cases (where he could see what happened to victims from their perspective - including the layout of the rooms they were in when murdered) , and tell people about how their life would turn out.
  (Holland actually stamped his passport "Clairvoyant," - thus the name of the book).
   Mr. Dykshoorn became famous throughout Europe in the late 1940s and 1950s. He and his wife moved to Australia and finally to the U.S. In fact, he was so amazing that he was awarded a police badge in Raleigh, N.C. for helping solve murders.
    What's fascinating is that in the Netherlands, being a psychic was believed and welcomed. Once he moved to Australia and the U.S., people doubted him. However, he persevered and showed them his amazing talent.

    He was a psychic and clairvoyant (That's different from what Rob does- talking with dead people and pets).  He actually cured people of diseases by taking on the symptoms and purging them from himself (I think it has to do with   energy transference).
  He and his wife passed in October 2011 in a fire. Although her father’s gift remained intact until his death, their daughter Helga Dykshoorn said he had difficulty making predictions about those closest to him. For this reason, she said that he could not have foreseen the fire that ravaged his apartment. 
  An article in the NY Times in October, 2011, contained some stories from people Mr. Dykshoorn had met. Here's a paragraph from the article: He had even performed medical miracles, guests were told. One man spoke of the creaky knee that Mr. Dykshoorn had remedied. Then there was the woman with the brain tumor, given 10 years to live, she said, but still plodding along 35 years later. After a visit with Mr. Dykshoorn, she recalled, she returned to her doctors, who were perplexed to learn that the tumor had virtually disappeared. 

  The book "My Passport Says Clairvoyant" and was published in 1974 by Hawthorn Books Inc./New York and authored by Russell H. Felton.  This book is well worth the effort to track down!  

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
