Sylvia Browne’s Last Public Interview
Sylvia Browne was the author of dozens of books on paranormal and spiritual topics. She discussed a wish for people to feel that they are all loved by God. Browne claimed that God comprises both a male and a female part, named Om and Azna respectively. She stated that the entity of God loves all people and living beings equally, regardless of one’s specific religious or spiritual beliefs. According to Browne, this includes atheists. Browne wrote that people’s actions and intentions define a person and soul, and that people of all religions, spiritual beliefs, and non-beliefs may go to “the Other Side”, Browne’s term for Heaven. Browne wrote that she presented her beliefs in a way that allows readers or listeners to take what they want from her teachings and leave the rest behind.
Television and radio
Browne was a frequent guest on US television and radio programs, including Larry King Live, The Montel Williams Show, That’s Incredible!, and Coast to Coast AM. During these appearances, she usually discussed her abilities with the host and then performed readings for audience members or callers. On certain occasions she was paired with other guests, including skeptics, often leading to debate about the authenticity of Browne’s psychic abilities. These shows often featured verbal sparring between the two, with each trying to convince the audience that the other was wrong.
Browne hosted her own hour-long Internet radio show on Hay House Radio, where she performed readings and discussed paranormal issues.
Browne appeared in a 1991 episode of Haunted Lives: True Ghost Stories. In the segment “Ghosts R Us”, she portrayed herself in a recreation of events that purportedly took place in a haunted Toys R Us store. Browne also appeared as herself on the television soap opera The Young and the Restless in December 2006.
In 1986, Browne founded a church in Campbell, California known as the Society of Novus Spiritus. It describes itself as “Gnostic Christian” and states that it incorporates the Gnostic Gospels and the traditions and teachings associated with Jesus without excluding Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, or Hinduism. The church’s website includes the statement that while the Bible is a “marvelous book of learning and hope”, it is not the “unaltered word of God”.
