Jane Doherty has a big tummy ache

Jane Doherty is a world-renowned psychic and author, and currently appears on The Learning Channel (TLC) in a reality TV show called “Dead Tenants.”

Jane has an amazing physical reaction to ghosts. Her stomach area enlarges by as much as six inches around within seconds. And, Jane says it is extremely painful to her when this happens. On the show when it happens you will hear her moaning and see her wincing. I am convinced this woman is definitely in pain.

With regards to her expanding tummy, Jane says, “It feels like a contraction when a woman is in labour, but it doesn’t ever release me until the spirit leaves. Instead, the stomach expands as if I was nine months pregnant.” Jane actually describes it as very intense muscle cramps, where the ghost physically grips her stomach, and if you watch, the belly will actually lift up. Jane continues, “Often I can tell by the grip whether it is a female, male or child spirit. It first happened to me in 1990, when I investigated my first haunted house with a researcher.”

The belly area is associated with the third charka located at the solar plexus, which is the area that dominates the gifts of telepathy, clairvoyance, clairsentience and an awareness of astral entities. It’s interesting that historically the belly area is associated with body’s core of energy sometimes called the ‘Chi Point’ or the ‘Hara’, both of which translate literally to mean belly. Historically, psychics felt their gift came from their gut (‘reading with the pit of the stomach’ where today, most psychics describe their gift coming from their third eye charka, between the eyes and centered in the middle of the forehead. With Jane Doherty, it seems the physical phenomena of her expanded stomach would be directly related to her psychic gift.

Jane’s devout belief in the power of God comes through in all that she does because she feels strongly that her psychic abilities are a God-given talent.  Using her psychic abilities allows Jane to bring comfort to people whose hearts are hurting, and hope to those who need it most. And, that’s her personal goal on “Dead Tenants” whose families are in desperate need of help and knowledge to deal with their home’s ghosts.

The Dead Tenants TV show follows the journeys of the Preternatural Research Society (PRS) a team of paranormal investigators through the attics, basements, living rooms and back yards of the most haunted houses in the country. Occult specialist Deryl Mizzen leads the team and Jane alerts them to the presence of spirits. The Dead Tenants show weaves the historical, scientific and psychic into a rich tapestry to help the viewer better understand the hauntings.

“There was never a question of how I would use my gift,” Jane says firmly. “I have taken every possible opportunity to help others.” Her words are like the words from her book, “Awakening the Mystic Gift: The Surprising Truth About What It Means to Be Psychic” – compelling. You won’t be able to put it down. The book chronicles Jane’s own psychic awakening and what it truly means to be psychic.

Jane Doherty is a gifted psychic and medium of international acclaim. Many refer to her as the “real deal” because of her accuracy and sincere caring nature. Hans Holzer, known best for his many books on ghosts and paranormal activities, has named Jane Doherty as “one of the top twenty psychics in the world.”  She has been a psychic for 15 years giving tens of thousands of readings. A born teacher, Jane feels part of her own purpose in life is to teach others to open to their own psychic abilities, and for this reason Jane has brought her psychic teachings to an online format through the website. Here Jane has established a book club for her readers to explore more about their own psychic abilities with her personally, and Jane will also teach her multi-leveled Psychic Development courses at the website. Jane has been featured on Fox News, CNN, The Today Show, Sightings, MSNBC, Jenny Jones and numerous publications, including The New York Times, The New York Post, The Industry Standard, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.
