~~November 2, 2014~~
This day was very special day in so many ways. The “Day of the Dead” is celebrated today mainly by Mexico and other Latin countries. It was by chance that a group of very dear friends planned a trip to this wonderful place … on this day.
It started out a bit chilly, our local temperatures have started to drop. The sky was light blue and the clouds looked like cotton balls. We couldn’t have asked for a better day weather-wise.
We started out early … the day was going to be long, we knew that.
The company was incredible. There were three Americans, two Puerto Ricans and one lady from Wales. Some had been to Cassadaga before, others not. Those of us who had been there before were hoping that this would be the experience to the “new people” as it was for us.
We started at a little enclosed gazebo where two residents performed healing sessions on all of us. From there, we moved to the main temple and participated in a very interesting and compelling service. Ms. Pauline was the main speaker.
We were there to connect with Source, to learn what life means (to each of us individually), to experience new things …. and, at the same time, without planning …. face the unexpected. This was another lesson learned. We came through with “flying colors”. Now we know more about life and about ourselves.
One of the main things we learned: “the need to learn to let go”.
After the service, it was time for lunch. We visited the restaurant located in the local hotel. It was a great meal and the company couldn’t have been any better.
Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp is a 120 year old community of spiritually-minded people located in Central Florida.
Cassadaga (a Seneca Indian word meaning “Water beneath the rocks“) is a small unincorporated community located in Volusia County, Florida, just north of Deltona. It is especially known for having a large number of psychics and mediums, and has consequently been named the “Psychic Capital of the World“.
~History of Cassadaga~
The Cassadaga Spiritualist camp began when the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association was founded by George P. Colby, from Pike, New York, a trance medium who traveled to many different states, giving readings and seances. He was well known, and in his travels, Colby was referred to as the “seer of spiritualism”. Colby attended summer Spiritualist Camp meetings at Lily Dale, New York, the town adjacent to Cassadaga, New York.
Colby worked with several spirit guides who would give him knowledge. One of his spirit guides was an Indian named Seneca, who had manifested to Colby during a seance in Lake Mills, Iowa. According to Colby, Seneca had instructed him to travel south to Florida, where he eventually arrived at a place called the Blue Springs Landing, near Orange City, Florida. According to Colby, the area that Seneca had led him to was the same area that Colby had seen during the seance in Iowa.
Colby had arrived in Florida in 1875, and on the 18th of December, 1894 the charter was granted to form The Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association. Later on January 3, 1895 Colby had signed a warranty deed to the Association for thirty-five acres.
The people who came to the Spiritualist Camp in the early days of its formation were affluent and well educated. The Cassadaga Spiritualist camp was named after the small Spiritualist Camp community found outside of Lily Dale, New York. The Spiritualist Camp Association later received additional acreage that expanded the camp to the current fifty-seven acres.
