Cassadaga, Florida as the Psychic Capital of the World. Astrogeographic positions of the spiritual camps at Cassadaga, Lily Dale & Chesterfield.
Cassadaga (a Seneca Indian word meaning “Water beneath the rocks”) is a small unincorporated community located in Volusia County, Florida. Cassadaga allegedly is a candidate for the title of the “Psychic Capital of the World” because of it`s supposedly large number of professional psychic counsellors. A comparatively more realistic candidate for the title of a Psychic World Capital particularly in terms of quantity of psychics (certainly among many others) would be Haridwar, U.P., India.
The Cassadaga Spiritual Camp was founded by George P. Colby a famous trance medium from Pike, New York referred to as the “seer of spiritualism”. Colby attended summer Spiritualist Camp meetings at Lily Dale, New York a town adjacent to Cassadaga, New York. Colby worked with several spirit guides who would give him information. One of his spirit guides was an Indian named Seneca, who instructed him to travel to a place called the Blue Springs Landing, near Orange City, Florida where Colby founded the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association on 18 Dec 1894. On 3 Jan 1895 Colby signed a warranty deed to the Association for thirty-five acres. Here´s the fascínating astrological chart for the day of the signing of the warranty deed:
