Kitty Bo Wilson – Married to A Psychic, Conducted Readings, Became Christian During Pentecostal Revival, Now an Atheist
Kitty Bo Wilson was born in Dallas, TX, in the early 1950’s, and raised in Highland Park. Her parents were Methodists but not really committed Christians. Although very much a believer in God anyway, and not really understanding who Jesus was as savior or anything about the concept of original sin, at 14, she went through a questioning, agnostic phase. At 16, her mother introduced her to the concept of reincarnation, which seemed to explain why there was suffering in the world, and also gave her a book about the psychic, Edgar Cayce. This was the ’60’s, the Age of Aquarius and eastern religions, and pot and psychedelics.
KItty Bo and her mother went to a study group centered around the readings of Edgar Cayce and meditation. At 17, she paid $25 to a transcendental meditation teacher, received a personal mantra, and began transcendental meditation. During her sophomore year of college at the University of Texas, after finding an Edgar Cayce youth study group, she learned of a living psychic, there in Austin, who gave readings like Edgar Cayce. 3 weeks after meeting this psychic, at the age of barely 20, she married him.
Kitty Bo became the conductor of the readings. There were also group meditations where members of the White Brotherhood spoke, which even included Jesus on rare occasions. Her husband claimed to see people’s auras. He was also deep into UFOs, and a station to signal UFOs was set up on some land outside of Austin. What made all this difficult was that her husband was also a paranoid and extremely abusive.
In 1977, on a lark, they went to a Pentecostal tent revival and ended up leaving the metaphysical field and attending that church, which was in many ways a cult. Finally, after 12 and half years of terrible abuse, Kitty Bo took her 3 children and fled.
She remarried a wonderful Christian man, moved to Indiana, where the moldy house they were living in cratered Kitty Bo’s health. They moved back to TX, settled on 20 acres in the hill country, and after menopause, Kitty Bo finally yielded to all the struggles she’d had with believing in God and became an atheist, in part due to her children becoming atheist after leaving home.
