“Through their sacrifice and manifold gifts, these great psychic powerhouses have blessed the world and should be an inspiration to developing mediums everywhere,” Riley wrote.
“I have dedicated more than half my life rescuing from the abyss of obscurity the stupendous work of not only the women mediums but many of the men who practiced their gifts and sought to help those in need. My research continues to this day to bring to the mainstream their lives and work. It is a part of spiritual history itself and should be recognized as such.
“Natural Law alters itself for no one, so the same energy systems and magnetic forces that were present during the heyday of Spiritualism are at work now and forever. Its up to us to utilize our potential and uplift humanity however we can.”
