A Tribute to Betty Shine
Shine was born in Kennington in 1929, and lived on the south coast. Betty
was without doubt the most famous and influential medium alive. Highly
respected for her remarkable psychic powers and healing skills, she used
her extraordinary gift to help, comfort and provide inspiration to many
thousands of people from all walks of life. Her best-selling books have
won her a legion of followers around the world, and few who have come into
contact with her remained in any doubts at all that her gifts are both
genuine and powerful.
Betty trained as a professional opera singer. She adored
being on stage and loved to feel the pulsating energy of the audience.
Betty never intended to become a healer, but fate took a hand and in her
destiny she became the very best.
Betty's first best-selling book 'Mind to Mind; was
published in 1989, and tells her story. Like Betty herself, it is
cheerful, down-to-earth, and full of humour. It reveals how she became
aware of her gifts; and how she has used her experiences of mind energy to
help others, illustrating with a wide variety of examples and case
This was followed by 'Mind Magic' which explains how
mediums receive messages and produce evidence of survival, how absent
healing is given and how the Universal Mind links up with our intuition.
This book was aimed to exercise our own healing powers for the good of
others, and ourselves. And in so doing, many will embark on a new,
exciting and fulfilling journey as we begin to fathom the magic of our
Her third mind book 'Mind Waves' explores the waves
which we all project and which invade everything around us, controlling
not only our private lives, but the world as a whole. A number of other
books followed, including 'Infinite Mind' that examines the Mind/Brain
phenomenon. Betty presents the evidence that she has accumulated over the
past quarter of a century for the existence of the Mind independent of the
biological functions of the Brain. Coming to terms with this fundamental
truth allows one to reassess not only the meaning of 'life' but also the
unmeaning of 'death'.
Betty helped so many people to overcome the fear of
death and I can only imagine that there were some joyful celebrations on
the 'other side' when Betty made her transition, our loss their gain.
Betty had a marvelous ability to communicate through her
books and tapes and was funny and warm like a close friend and this she
will continue to be to thousands of people all over the world. Betty's
incredible best-selling books were written in a very simple, clear and
truthful way allowing the reader to understand a very complex subject. As
a leading medium and healer, Betty has given a formidable insight into
issues that most people are too nervous to address. Her books contain true
stories and observations that capture the readers' imagination and make
She reached out to everyone and touched their soul with
her sense of humour and love, which only a truly magical spiritual teacher
can do. She used her gifts and energy in a wonderful way to enable those
she touched to develop, as one of the titles of her books say, 'A Mind Of
Betty's surname 'Shine' was very appropriate because she
was so so radiant, full of light and energy, she could have lit up a power
station! She always said 'To give is better than to receive' and she lived
up to her philosophy. She bridged the great divide between this world and
the next and her soul will live on to begin the new amazing chapter of her
life. Betty is truly a remarkable person.
Thank you Betty for your Love and unbelievable Spiritual
guidance. We all know you will be with us forever.
