Invited to Tokyo in 1976 by emminent Japanese business and government leaders, Lillian startled the Japanese press with her "psychic disclosure" of an unrevealed government scandal which mirrored our Watergate crisis. Having no prior knowledge of the Japanese language, her telepathic ability allowed her to respond to questions posed in Japanese without the assistance of a translator.

A Philadelphia native, this elegant, effervescent woman fought and feared her psychic abilities as a young child. Inspired by her strong religious faith and tutored by a spiritually gifted older woman, Lillian came to accept her special gifts and blossomed into the powerful force she was to become.

Lillian hopes to share her knowledge with more people throughout the world through her writing, lecturing, and teaching activities.
