The police reported that his twin daughters are in critical condition in ICU but are improving. “We are treating it as a family tragedy” stated police inspector Lau Thygesen from the Copenhagen Police to the Copenhagen Post.
Bishop claims to be a psychic healer who cures people when the spirit of a German physician named “Dr Karl” possesses him. He’s appeared on the Danish television shows “Klarsyn”, “Andernes Magt”, “Troldmandsskolen” and “Anderene vender tilbage”. He also claims that Dr Karl is his “main spirit guide” who uses his body to heal people in need.
Bishop claims that he healed Natalie, one of his twin daughters, of blindness by laying his hands on her. He has also stated that he cured a large number of people across the world by using this same method. On his website, he profiled his daughter Natalie and described how she was born with seven aneurisms in her stomach. She was provided with emergency treatment but she suffered brain damage, and this caused her to lose her sight, as well as movement down her left side.
He wrote on his site: “After no improvement with these, I asked Spirit for help, even that it was a risk my own life (I was in a very bad state of health myself), but what father would not do that for his child? I went into trance and Spirit Dr Karl was able to restore her sight and correct the paralysis, unfortunately he was not able to repair the kidney”
“The first time Spirit Dr Karl undertook healing using my body was in 1992, since which time he has helped many thousands of people across Europe and the USA”.
He went on to inform his readers that Dr Karl was born in 1848 into a family of doctors in Prussia and that he showed a keen interest and skill from a very early age and performed his first “unofficial” operation on a person at the age of 12 years. “Since I “woke-up” to my own awareness and realized the depth of spiritual knowledge and abilities I have, my whole life changed in ways I could never have imagined. For many years, the spiritual things were second place to my successful career in computing, over the years the balance shifted and in 1995 the spiritual became the focus of my work and life. All of my life I felt a bit of an outsider and I have experienced many things that seemed to have no practical explanation” he wrote.
