Imagine a spirit world existing in Small-town, America where you are immediately uplifted the moment you cross the town line. Everyday life is positive and the gifted people of the community work and live in harmony. It is not fantasy, it is a way of life, and you are invited to experience this unique and healing path of virtue by exploring Lily Dale, New York yourself.
The Lily Dale assembly proudly displays a sign representing it to be "the world's largest center for the religion of spiritualism," despite the town having a abnormally small population of just 275 citizens year round. The community is located within the town of Pomfret, found in the southwestern corner of New York next to Cassadaga Lake that is well known for psychic mediums, clairvoyants, prayer, church services, religious and healing services and it is a major backdrop for the paranormal.
Thousands of people flock to Lily Dale to embrace spiritual awareness, uplifting lectures and to speak with one of the many mediums that live in the town. Psychic medium John Edward and Spiritual medium James Van Praagh are frequent visitors of Lily Dale, and offer private appointments and give regular lectures.
The quaint serenity of the community that embraces the power of free will and openly communicating with the dead is embellished with Victorian gingerbread style homes reminiscent of a different era, but among the many treasures you will find is an atmosphere filled with energy, yet has clearly not been marred by charlatans or self-proclaimed psychic fortune-tellers, tea-leaf, palm or crystal ball readers promising divine destinies and impossible dreams for a large sum of money.
Known as the town that talks to the dead, "Lilly Dale" was founded in 1879 by sisters Margaret and Kate Fox, role models and leaders of the creation of Spiritualism. The town was later named Lily Dale, possibly due to the massive amounts of lilies found growing around the nearby area of the lake. The original cottage of founders Margaret and Kate Fox was moved to Lily Dale in 1916 from nearby Hydesville, giving the community instant recognition for Spiritualism overnight. By 1927 Lily Dale had an official postal name and zip code.
Closure is something that most of us need when someone we love has passed over, and in not every instance of death is that possible. The town of Lily Dale has forty registered mediums that talk to the dead and relate to us the continuity of life. In 2010 HBO presented the "Devil's Playground" "No One Dies in Lily Dale," a documentary featuring Lily Dale spiritual mediums who openly convey the answers as to how they communicate with the dead.
They claim to see, sense, smell and connect clearly with the other side, and relay messages that are intended for those grieving. The messages are nearly impossible to downplay in that they are typically something that no one else knows about other then the deceased, and the person receiving the information.
It is clear that the mediums have strong convictions in this unique form of healing that puts them into direct communication with the unseen world and brings forth messages to loved ones who otherwise might never know what their loved one may have been attempting to convey, but was unable to without the help of a psychic or spiritual medium. The majority of the registered mediums have a bio page and an email located on the Official Site for the Lily Dale Assembly.
Nature lovers can enjoy a quiet walk through pathways leading past fairy villages, inns and homes where tiny winged mythical beings dwell. The pink fairies located in the trees will guide you through some of the most enchanting wooded areas that Lily Dale has to offer. The fairies of course have supernatural abilities, so don't forget to peek under the mushrooms or into the miniature windows to see what they are up to.
You may also notice the glimmering fairy dust that naturally sparkles in the sunlight. The Fairy Trail is a part of the Woodland Heritage Trail that winds through the woods, leading you to all of God's creations and offering you a piece of serenity and beauty within one of the most captivating settings you will ever find.
Location: The archway leading you into the Fairy Trail is located at the edge of the woods next to the Fox Cottage Meditation Garden, just past the Forest and Healing Temples.
