** RonaldReagan's reliance on astrology might be considered to be in the same ball-park. But this is no weirder, taken objectively, than those Presidents and heads of government - including by all accounts Tony Blair - who prayed to God in the sincere belief ''their'' spirit advisor would steer their actions concerning running a country.

* ''Series/AmericanGothic'': [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Merlyn]]. While Caleb is not the only person who can see and speak to her, she does appear for the most part only as a ghost who advises her brother on how to stay on the straight and narrow. The others who catch sight of her or even interact with her (apart from her brief stint as a mortal in "Rebirth") are Buck (who even aside from being the BigBad has [[PsychicPowers a lot more powers]] [[{{Satan}} at his disposal]] than the average resident of Trinity) and Ben Healy. In the latter's case, this is only because Merlyn herself chooses to appear to him and [[NightmareFuel haunt his dreams]], since [[{{Blackmail}} he knows the truth about how she died]] and she's trying to appeal to his conscience so he can [[ManipulativeBastard break free of Buck's influence]]. No one else, like Gail (who is her cousin as well as Caleb's) or [[MagicalNegro Mrs. Holt]], ever sees her.
