Fun Facts About James Van Praagh: (Source: Wikipedia)

1) He is an American author, producer and television personality who describes himself as a clairvoyant and spiritual medium. He has written numerous books, including The New York Times bestseller Talking to Heaven. He co-executive produced the CBS primetime series The Ghost Whisperer, which was based on his life, and was portrayed by Ted Danson in the 2002 semibiographical miniseries Living with the Dead. He hosted a short-lived paranormal talk show called Beyond with James Van Praagh.

2) Raised Roman Catholic, he was an altar boy and at the age of 14 he attended pre-seminary. According to his website, he lost interest in organized religion and left the seminary after a spirit whispered to him, "God is much bigger than these four walls; you must leave and find God outside in the world." His mother, Jeanne, died in 1985 and Van Praagh claims she visits and guides him frequently.

It was there that he discovered a direct interest in spiritualism after visiting medium Brian Hurst, who upon meeting Van Praagh told him that he's a medium and that the spirit world would assist him in "changing the consciousness of the planet."
