Development and Paranormal Research.
“Lily is a member of my meetup group, she is also deaf and mute”. “She carries a strong passion for the paranormal
and we were recently on an investigation together.” “I was more than impressed.” “That evening she had her
interpreter with her, but we feel that we could manage even if the interpreter was unable to attend.”
“I think we have all failed to realize, that the deaf have heightened senses, in which she certainly demonstrated to us
that evening.” “I work as a full time professional psychic under the nickname of Ms-Swami, Lily’s senses are different,
but together work very well.” “Her sense of a presence or feeling vibrations, are much keener than those of an
average person.” “She carries a strong interest in video and photography, I don’t see a reason why her handicap
should hold her back as well as others that are deaf.”
“In the darkness, if she needs to communicate with us, she uses a flash light or a laser light.” “She captured things
on photographs that no one else did.” “If her interpreter was not available, she can certainly write to us what she is

have offered to assist her in this campaign in matching everyone of them up with a team.”
“I am asking that you take them into your meetup group, take them onto your paranormal team as a guest, or make
them a member, but just give them a chance.” “Their interest is as strong as everyone else’s and their senses are
stronger but in a different way.” “For the majority of paranormal teams out there, this is your hobby.” “Why would
you exclude anyone from that pleasure?” “Everyone deserves a fair chance.”
If you have a meetup group or a paranormal team that would like to assist a deaf person in your area with
participating in paranormal research, please contact Jackie. You may find Jackie at their website by placing CVAPI
