Baby Mind Reader Ready for Psychic Challenge

Source: Paranormal Review

Derek Ogilvie, a British medium who claims to be able to read babies’ minds – a sort of “child whisperer” – is eager to relieve the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) of $1 million by proving his psychic abilities are real.

No formal application has yet been made but his acceptance of the challenge, if it goes ahead, is likely to be the subject of a television documentary. Ogilvie’s work was featured in Channel 5’s reality series, The Baby Mind Reader.

Scottish-born Ogilvie, 41, has been a practicing medium for several years. His speciality came about, he says, during a reading for a mother whose three-week-old child began sending him strong telepathic messages about the family’s life together.

Now, he is called in by parents whose children have sleeping, eating or crying problems that do not respond to conventional cures. Fiona McCade, writing in The Scotsman last year told of her own experience when he visited her and her 10-month-old son, for whom meal times were a battleground, because he was still treating solid food with suspicion, and whose sleep patterns were erratic.
