Welcome to the website Medium 7. This site will provide information about the scientific research that is being conducted to explore and assess specific parapsychology and metaphysical concepts. Parapsychology is a discipline that seeks to investigate the conditions and events that are experienced with senses that go beyond ‘normal’ seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling and tasting. Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy that explains the fundamental nature of being. People interested in this topic have questions about the properties of “space”, “time”, “cause and effect” and have an overall interest in understanding the “ purpose for mankind’s existence”. If some of the following questions resonate with you, you know that you have come to the right website.
If you have asked yourself any of these questions, you have come to the right website. This site will offer you an opportunity to be part of the journey to better understand the answers to these important questions. If you have ever seen a psychic or a medium for a reading and often wondered about how they obtain the information received, you can review the research study questions, methods and videos on this site to obtain clarity. Maybe you have never directly experienced a reading with a medium or psychic but have seen them demonstrate their skills on talk shows; you may have started to question the nature of our universe as a result of these experiences. Medium 7 research (2010-2012 Phase 1) will answer some of the following questions:
Having been conditioned to understanding that “only what we see is real”, it is often difficult for some people to believe that a Medium can communicate with “spirit” or discarnates. If one does choose to believe that some individuals on earth can communicate with “spirit”, then perhaps believing that mankind can be guided by messages from ‘discarnates” may be a bit more challenging. We often have instincts to help us make decisions that are contrary to logic, yet we don’t know why we go with our intuition. If you are seeking evidence or clarity about this type of phenomenon, this site will provide you with the answers.
There are few dedicated researchers that are currently systematically conducting evaluation research with Mediums. Metaphysics Research (Principal Investigator: Donna Smith-Moncrieffe) launched Phase 1 of a study in 2010 to systematically explore this phenomenon with both Mediums and sitters. This site will provide all of the information related to the research and offers you an opportunity to participate by either being part of interviews or focus groups, and by sharing your experiences via the online survey. The survey instruments ( for Mediums and sitters), a scoring tool, the methodology, and study limitations are posted on this site.
Perhaps you’re just the observer type and do not really want to participate in the research. This site will still interest you as you can watch the videos of the research conducted. The Principal Investigator of this research and Author of the Book, Medium 7 (Donna Smith-Moncrieffe, 2013) has videotaped some of the experiments conducted. You can witness for example the reading of a male non-believer who learns during the reading that the Medium has accurately identified his friend that committed suicide just two weeks before the reading. The video series featured on this site will be presented as follows:
In addition to potentially participating in the research and watching videos, you can review the bi-weekly blogs and provide comments. The blogs will provide answers to typical questions and will provide stimulating exchanges. You can also read a summary of the chapters from the book Medium 7 to obtain a more comprehensive understanding of the various topics being addressed in the book.
The resource page will provide you with reference information for books and academic journals that can provide clarity about research methodology and knowledge that increases one’s understanding about the nature of the universe. I am a professional researcher that enjoys answering questions using statistical analysis (yes using numbers and sometimes complicated equations!!) but I am also interested in making this information more accessible to the public so you will note that I reference books that are user friendly. There are also references from the British Journal of Psychology, The Journal of Parapsychology, The Journal of Religion and Psychical Research and other peer-reviewed journals for people interested in academic type evidence. You can also learn more about my professional experience conducting evaluation research studies on the “Principal Investigator “page.
My hope is that the research results will increase clarity about the purpose of mankind’s existence. As we hear more about world suffering, ill-health, financial tragedies and dysfunctional relationships, we seem to yearn more for guidance, comfort and hope for a more peaceful existence. Perhaps evidence revealed from this research will help transform lives by giving people the level of understanding required to transform their life into a joyful and productive existence.
