Many 19th century mediums were discovered to be engaged in fraud.[61] While advocates of mediumship claim that their experiences are genuine, the Encyclopædia Britannica article on spiritualism notes in reference to a case in the 19th century that "...one by one, the Spiritualist mediums were discovered to be engaged in fraud, sometimes employing the techniques of stage magicians in their attempts to convince people of their clairvoyant powers." The article also notes that "the exposure of widespread fraud within the spiritualist movement severely damaged its reputation and pushed it to the fringes of society in the United States."[62]
The spirit photographer William Hope tricked William Crookes with a fake spirit photograph of his wife in 1906. Oliver Lodge revealed there had been obvious signs of double exposure, the picture of Lady Crookes had been copied from a wedding anniversary photograph, however, Crookes was a convinced spiritualist and claimed it was genuine evidence for spirit photography.[106]
I googled "Indigo Crystal Child." It's a nice idea: spirits from other worlds coming to this planet to save it. It sounds like the sort of well-illustrated children's book fantasy you could buy for anyone's baby shower, no matter their faith. But of all the things my trusted psychic has said, this one shook my faith in her. Maybe I just lack self-esteem. Maybe my third eye is cloudy (as she has insisted). Maybe I should drop this aversion and take more yoga, try another juice cleanse, reread The Alchemist, until I can look you in the eye and say with pride, "Hi, I'm Angela. I'm an Indigo Crystal Child, and I'm one seriously legit psychic."
I can't promise that the specific person you are trying to reach is going to come through. No one can. I can't make anyone show up on command. You may hear from spirits other than the ones you are hoping to connect with and you may have surprise visitors as well that you weren't expecting. I will say that most of the time the people you do want to connect with do come through. 
My first shift was on Valentine's Day, which was like learning how to Parkour without first learning how to walk. The service would link to my personal phone with the caller from their 800 number, so I was able to work from home. That night my phone rang constantly with needy, single callers. The majority of these lonely hearts asked about people they hadn't even met yet from online dating sites. They were spending $3.50 a minute to obsess over someone they'd never even kissed. I was collecting $1.99 a minute to tell them what I saw in the cards, which was, by and large, bullshit. They were never going to meet, let alone, love these strangers. By the end of my evening I felt infected with desperation and insanity (which makes sense considering my employers had classified me as an "Empath," a skill that was added to my profile).

Direct voice communication is the claim that spirits speak independently of the medium, who facilitates the phenomenon rather than produces it. The role of the medium is to make the connection between the physical and spirit worlds. Trumpets are often utilised to amplify the signal, and directed voice mediums are sometimes known as "trumpet mediums". This form of mediumship also permits the medium to participate in the discourse during séances, since the medium's voice is not required by the spirit to communicate. Leslie Flint was one of the best known exponents of this form of mediumship.[28]

Magnetic stripe technology, usually called mag-stripe, is so named because of the stripe of magnetic oxide tape that is laminated on a card. There are three tracks of data on the magnetic stripe. Typically the data on each of the tracks follows a specific encoding standard, but it is possible to encode any format on any track. A mag-stripe card is cheap compared to other card technologies and is easy to program. The magnetic stripe holds more data than a barcode can in the same space. While a mag-stripe is more difficult to generate than a bar code, the technology for reading and encoding data on a mag-stripe is widespread and easy to acquire. Magnetic stripe technology is also susceptible to misreads, card wear, and data corruption. These cards are also susceptible to some forms of skimming where external devices are placed over the reader to intercept the data read.
A psychic reading allows you the opportunity to connect with someone who has a heightened connection with the spirit world. Through a variety of means - including tarot cards, angel cards, astrology - psychic readers can provide insights into your life that you would not normally get. A psychic reading, more than anything else, is about giving you a fresh perspective on where you are now and where you are capable of going in the future. Use a psychic reading to ask questions and find answers that are not accessible elsewhere - about your love life, your financial circumstances, your career prospects - anything that preoccupies you.
In 1880 the American stage mentalist Washington Irving Bishop published a book revealing how mediums would use secret codes as the trick for their clairvoyant readings.[84] The Seybert Commission was a group of faculty at the University of Pennsylvania who in 1884–1887 exposed fraudulent mediums such as Pierre L. O. A. Keeler and Henry Slade.[85] The Fox sisters confessed to fraud in 1888. Margaret Fox revealed that she and her sister had produced the "spirit" rappings by cracking their toe joints.[86]
“"As a professional medium my own personal reading with Denise Lescano was "right on". Everything she said about my Mother and Step-Mother was verifiable information. My Mom who would not go to any Medium that I tried to connect with previously for whatever reason, I know had chosen Denise to be the conduit being they have something in common. I was very impressed with her work ethic, high integrity, and her moral character. Denise brings tremendous sensitivity in to her work. She's an "evidential medium"- one of the very best for t...“

In 1966 the son of Bishop Pike committed suicide. After his death, Pike contacted the British medium Ena Twigg for a series of séances and she claimed to have communicated with his son. Although Twigg denied formerly knowing anything about Pike and his son, the magician John Booth discovered that Twigg had already known information about the Pike family before the séances. Twigg had belonged to the same denomination of Bishop Pike, he had preached at a cathedral in Kent and she had known information about him and his deceased son from newspapers.[169]

The magician Julien Proskauer revealed that the levitating trumpet of Jack Webber was a trick. Close examination of photographs reveal Webber to be holding a telescopic reaching rod attached to the trumpet, and sitters in his séances only believed it to have levitated because the room was so dark they could not see the rod. Webber would cover the rod with crepe paper to disguise its real construction.[162]

We can look at why we have behavioral and or addictive patterns. These show up in the relationship patterns, habitual reactions, the way we react in our lives, and what we can do to form more positive actions in the future. The heating vitality in the Akashic Records allows us the independence to choose grace in all issues; thus, overriding any illusion we've produced that leads to us to consider why we have separated from God, Spirit, or a Higher Power. It can be a single with the most impressive equipment available around the earth presently, to help and remind us of our oneness with our God, spirit, or foundation.

A psychic medium is someone who claims to have or is believed to have extrasensory capabilities that enable the person to perceive and interpret paranormal forces. Some experts believe that everyone has a certain amount of psychic power, sometimes called a “sixth sense,” that is really an intensive form of intuitive observation, according to psychics.co.uk. A psychic medium reading is a session during which the medium, or “reader,” analyzes a person’s “aura” (electric and magnetic energy surrounding each person) to explain a set of circumstances or offer a reasonable prognosis of events that may occur in the future. Many people claim to be an accurate psychic medium, but not all have paranormal abilities. The following information can help you avoid being taken advantage of by an imposter and perhaps lead you to someone who is an authentic psychic medium.
No matter what is going on in your life right now, a psychic reading can help you discover and maintain your peace of mind and tranquility. During your call, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers to the things that have been on your mind lately. As a result of your session, you will gain an appreciation for how things in the past are affecting you and the likely future outcome of this situation.
There are two types of smart cards: contact and contactless. Both have an embedded microprocessor and memory. The smart card differs from the proximity card in that the microchip in the proximity card has only one function: to provide the reader with the card's identification number. The processor on the smart card has an embedded operating system and can handle multiple applications such as a cash card, a pre-paid membership card, or an access control card.
The exposures of fraudulent activity led to a rapid decline in ectoplasm and materialization séances.[199] Investigator Joe Nickell has written that modern self-proclaimed mediums like John Edward, Sylvia Browne, Rosemary Altea and James Van Praagh are avoiding the Victorian tradition of dark rooms, spirit handwriting and flying tambourines as these methods risk exposure. They instead use "mental mediumship" tactics like cold reading or gleaning information from sitters before hand (hot reading). Group readings also improve hits by making general statements with conviction, which will fit at least one person in the audience. Shows are carefully edited before airing to show only what appears to be hits and removing anything that does not reflect well on the medium.[200]

The advantage of using barcode technology is that it is cheap and easy to generate the credential and it can easily be applied to cards or other items. However the same affordability and simplicity makes the technology susceptible to fraud, because fake barcodes can also be created cheaply and easily, for example by photocopying real ones. One attempt to reduce fraud is to print the barcode using carbon-based ink, and then cover the bar code with a dark red overlay. The barcode can then be read with an optical reader tuned to the infrared spectrum, but can not easily be copied by a copy machine. This does not address the ease with which barcode numbers can be generated from a computer using almost any printer.

Spirits are just as excited to speak to you as you are to speak to them. However, if you want to hear from a loved one who has recently passed, I usually suggest that you wait 3 months for a medium reading, but it is not necessary. As people, we need time to go through our grieving process. The spirit does not require any adjustment time on their side. I know this from my own experience. I have been in contact with many spirits within weeks, and even within 24 hours of their passing. I do believe the time is right when you are ready whenever that is all that being said. However, if that spirit does not come through, it doesn't mean that they don't want to, or don't love you. Sometimes you may be meant to hear from someone else that day. Spirit will always put you in touch with who you are supposed to hear from, and give you the messages you need to hear.

A kind gesture. An empathetic listener. A best friend. A gentle touch that says "don't worry, everything will be ok!” A hug that energizes you and fills your heart. A Warm embrace. Maybe it’s a purr from your kitty or a puppy kiss on the nose. Valentine’s Day means different things to different people. It symbolizes the most powerful energy in the universe and that is LOVE. Love is the bridge that connects us to our loved ones here on earth and in the spirit world. Love is what heals our hearts. My sister and brother in-law just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary! They have been through the good and the bad together and are great role models for couples in love. They have worked at it! One question that many of my clients are interested in is their love life. Will I meet my soul mate? Because we create most of our destiny by the choices we make, I really believe that if we want to have a romance in our lives, we will have one. As I wrote in my book Love Karma, some people energetically block love from entering their lives. Sometimes past experiences that didn’t work out caused heartache, making them more cautious to open their hearts again. During our session we have energetically unblocked that so they are open to having a relationship again.  I always say “no guts, no glory!” With all the crazy energy going on in our world, the one and only thing we can count on is love. Start with self-love. I always say it’s the first true love. When you love yourself you are then capable to find a healthy romance and partner. In the last forty plus years I have predicted many love connections!

Some people worry that a psychic reading performed on the phone will not be as thorough or accurate as a face-to-face reading. Thankfully, these fears are completely unfounded. Phone psychic readings are every bit as good as an in-person reading, as each advisor is rated anonymously following each call. This guarantees that you are contacting a qualified & professional psychic guide for each call.

In 1992, Richard Wiseman analyzed the Feilding report of Eusapia Palladino and argued that she employed a secret accomplice that could enter the room by a fake door panel positioned near the séance cabinet. Wiseman discovered this trick was already mentioned in a book from 1851, he also visited a carpenter and skilled magician who constructed a door within an hour with a false panel. The accomplice was suspected to be her second husband, who insisted on bringing Palladino to the hotel where the séances took place.[181] Massimo Polidoro and Gian Marco Rinaldi also analyzed the Feilding report but came to the conclusion no secret accomplice was needed as Palladino during the 1908 Naples séances could have produced the phenomena by using her foot.[182]
Nationally known, natural-born psychic medium Trenny Simmons felt her gift at a very young age. She repeatedly saw the death of her brother in her childhood dreams as well as seeing other predictions. She credits her brother and his post-death visit to her as the reason she embraced her gift and truly began utilizing the abilities that she was often told growing up were stemming from a negative place.

Speaking or chatting with the more experienced advisors on Oranum will cost more credits.

When someone crosses over, they see the world through a new perspective. Each lifetime in the physical plane, if lived correctly, leaves the soul enlightened. When we go to the other side, we become enlightened, especially through the process of having a life review. So don't be surprised if the deceased have some really important messages to pass on to you.

Humans have been fascinated with contacting the dead since the beginning of human existence. Cave paintings by indigenous Australians date back 28,000 years, some depicting skulls, bones, spirits and the afterlife.[3] Other cave paintings in Indonesia date back a further 10,000 years.[4] Mediumship gained popularity during the nineteenth century, when ouija boards were used by the upper classes as a source of entertainment. Investigations during this period revealed widespread fraud—with some practitioners employing techniques used by stage magicians—and the practice began to lose credibility.[5][6] Fraud is still rife in the medium/psychic industry, with cases of deception and trickery being discovered to this day.[7]

Karee had a sweet personality.  However, many of the things she said were very inaccurate or generic.  I came for a mediumship for my father, who passed away. She asked me if I knew a John or a Mark closely, which are very generic names.  She drew a ring that he never had.  He doesn't have a wedding ring, and has a ring that he hasn't worn in decades that looks nothing like that.  She then said the diamond shape is probably the watch he has.  But his watch is round.  She then said maybe it's the little symbol on the back of the watch.  He also didn't pick up on something I brought that he wore all the time on his body, that was very special to him and had so much meaning.  There were so many things that were not accurate at all, about him and things around the house, his clothing, and even my mother.  She said my father was in the military, which he wasn't.  And that he wore a uniform.  Then when I said no, she said my mother did.  Again, no.  Finally, she came to me.  There were many moments like that.  At the end, she said I was too analytical, rational, intelligent, anxious, and amped up, and that I needed to meditate more.  She said my spirit was blocking my father's spirit, so it wasn't coming through well.  I was really looking forward to being with my father. I felt much more depressed afterwards because now it just seems like he's dead dead, and his spirit is not around.  At least she went over the hour, to 1 hour 40 minutes to try to contact my dad some more.   Just as an fyi, most people and their phone numbers are Google-able, so people can be researched before they come.

The magician Samri Baldwin exposed the tricks of the Davenport brothers in his book The Secrets of Mahatma Land Explained (1895).[90] The medium Swami Laura Horos was convicted of fraud several times and was tried for rape and fraud in London in 1901. She was described by the magician Harry Houdini as "one of the most extraordinary fake mediums and mystery swindlers the world has ever known".[91]


Attempts to communicate with the dead and other living human beings, aka spirits, have been documented back to early human history. The story of the Witch of Endor (In the most recent edition of the NIV witch is rendered medium in the passage) tells of one who raised the spirit of the deceased prophet Samuel to allow the Hebrew king Saul to question his former mentor about an upcoming battle, as related in the Books of Samuel in the Jewish Tanakh (the basis of the Old Testament).
In 1970 two psychical researchers investigated the direct-voice medium Leslie Flint and found that all the "spirit" voices in his séance sounded exactly like himself and attributed his mediumship to "second-rate ventriloquism".[170] The medium Arthur Ford died leaving specific instructions that all of his files should be burned. In 1971 after his death, psychical researchers discovered his files but instead of burning them they were examined and discovered to be filled with obituaries, newspaper articles and other information, which enabled Ford to research his séance sitters backgrounds.[171]
Being a half-ass psychic, I wondered whether he meant business partner or sex partner. He soon revealed she was both—and they were starting a company together. My intuition/magical powers told me this woman was about to leave him high and dry, but common sense told me that news might offend him and blow my chances of landing this job. Fortune-telling has no solid ethics, so I told him what I believed he wanted to hear. And I got the job.

In the later half of the 20th century, Western mediumship developed in two different ways. One type involved clairaudience or sensitives who hear spirit, and then relay what they hear to their clients.[29] The other incarnation of non-physical mediumship is a form of channeling in which the channeler goes into a trance, or "leaves their body", allowing a spirit entity to borrow their body, who then speaks through them.[30] When in a trance the medium appears to come under the control of the spirit of a departed soul, sometimes entering into a cataleptic state,[31] although modern channelers may not.[citation needed] Some channelers open the eyes when channeling, and remain able to walk and behave normally. The rhythm and the intonation of the voice may also change completely.

“It has been said that all of life is our teacher and we are forever in a classroom. That makes so much sense as we definitely are on a journey in each of our lives.

“Denise, My daughter and I came to see you June of this year. You “knew” a lot of things: that my daughter was getting married, that her father had crossed over, that she had a brother and that the brother would be walking her down the aisle. You knew the wedding would be in a Catholic Church but that the ceremony would be nontraditional. You also knew that it would be “around the beach”; the reception was on the beach. You “knew” a lot of things, including that my daughter's dad would be with her at the wedding. You had to...“

“Hi Denise... You met with my sister through Project Help Thursday and I just wanted you to know you may have saved her life. You communicated with her son who took his life last year. Today when she relayed particulars of your meeting I could sense her relief and felt for the first time since he died that she would actually get through this. I do not want to over dramatize but I was very concerned about her. Thank you so much for your help....“
You can cleanse your home of negative energy with sage or sweet grass. You can also perform a smudging ceremony, although this is best done by respectfully approaching a spiritual First Nations person. You can also perform a salt ceremony to protect your home. Lastly, you'd want to meditate regularly, psychically surround yourself in white light, and tell any negative energy that it does not have your permission to interfere with your life.
This training will help you understand how best to send an ugly spirit, negative energy or entity into the light and change the template of your home.  If your home has ever had a bad event happen like a suicide, murder or death in the house, you need to check this out. It can change the entire energy of the home. Making it easier to sell or more comfortable for you to live in. 

In the 1860s and 1870s, trance mediums were very popular. Spiritualism generally attracted female adherents, many who had strong interests in social justice. Many trance mediums delivered passionate speeches on abolitionism, temperance, and women's suffrage.[22] Scholars have described Leonora Piper as one of the most famous trance mediums in the history of Spiritualism.[5][23][24]
These employees, hired by psychic service companies who know they have no paranormal skills, usually fumble through a telephone session by asking the client numerous questions and providing generic answers to the client’s questions. Some callers get disgusted and hang up after several minutes, after paying a tidy per-minute sum to enrich the company.
If a psychic uses Tarot or some other divination tool, they are simply tuning into their intuition on your behalf and relating what they find over the phone. There is absolutely no need for you to be physically present. The only method that would require a client to be physically present with their advisor is palmistry or some other modality that “reads” the physical body.
