In the mid-1990s, Virginia Adair traveled the world over, interviewing 43 female psychics and healers chosen randomly in 15 countries on four continents. Among the ?new daughters of the oracle? she encountered were:? Glennie Scott, of London, England, whose healing of Barrie Stonehill?s poorly-functioning bowel meant that, over 20 years later, he still had not had to use his colon;? Elvia Chaquinga Zurita, of Mexico City, who heals people?s mental and physical ailments by telekinetically transmitting their negative energy into the whites of eggs;? Greta Woodrew, of Waynesville, N.C., who in minutes cured ballerina Virginia Rich Barnett of a knee injury so severe doctors told her she would never even exercise again, let alone dance. At age 55, this associate director of Atlanta?s Carl Radcliffe Dance Group was still dancing;? Daphne Possee, of Kent, England, who foresaw the Zeebrugge, Belgium, ferry disaster, and the Pan-Am Lockerbie air disaster, and foretold the beginning and end dates of the 1991 Desert War against Saddam Hussein;? Sema Oztemir, of Istanbul, Turkey, who foretold the emergency heart surgery of her country?s Prime Minister;? Joy Herald, of Newark, N.J., who used her psychometric powers?the ability to sense the identity of all those who have ever touched an object?to solve an unsolvable murder case;? And thirty-seven more.
