On the TV screen in the 1980s, a middle-aged woman addresses a rapt crowd. She wears a golden headdress and espouses a message of peace and love. This bizarre broadcast was part of a series shown across the U.S. – but just what is the truth behind these strange scenes?
The story began in California in February 1954. Ernest Norman, a clairvoyant and spiritualist, apparently met a 53-year-old woman named Ruth at a psychic event and regaled her with outlandish tales about her past lives.
According to Ernest, Ruth was the reincarnation of an Egyptian Pharaoh’s daughter who had been friends with Moses. Of course, the pair instantly hit it off, and it’s said that they tied the knot that very same day.
