According to the magician John Booth the stage mentalist David Devant managed to fool a number of people into believing he had genuine psychic ability who did not realize that his feats were magic tricks. At St. George's Hall, London he performed a fake "clairvoyant" act where he would read a message sealed inside an envelope. The spiritualist Oliver Lodge who was present in the audience was duped by the trick and claimed that Devant had used psychic powers. In 1936 Devant in his book Secrets of My Magic revealed the trick method he had used.[159]
In old-line Spiritualism, a portion of the services, generally toward the end, is given over to demonstrations of mediumship through contact with the spirits of the dead. A typical example of this way of describing a mediumistic church service is found in the 1958 autobiography of C. Dorreen Phillips. She writes of the worship services at the Spiritualist Camp Chesterfield in Chesterfield, Indiana: "Services are held each afternoon, consisting of hymns, a lecture on philosophy, and demonstrations of mediumship."[20]
Some people ask if I, much like a doctor, chose this specialty as my service. On a basic human level, the answer is no...it chose me. On a soul level, though, I am certain this is what I signed up to do in this lifetime. My responsibility lies in simply acknowledging my "gift" and what comes naturally for me, and embracing the calling to serve as a messenger for Spirit.
to tune in. Think of it as surfing for radio stations using a dial. The prayer works hand in hand with the energy. The data in the Akashic Information will help us understand our past, immediate present, and future. By accessing the Akashic data, we establish and discharge something that we have now designed, that has grown to be a block to our existing realization of our oneness with God.

The difference between the two types of smart cards is the manner with which the microprocessor on the card communicates with the outside world. A contact smart card has eight contact points, which must physically touch the contacts on the reader to convey information between them. Since contact cards must be inserted into readers carefully in the proper orientation, the speed and convenience of such a transaction is not acceptable for most access control applications. The use of contact smart cards as physical access control is limited mostly to parking applications when payment data is stored in card memory, and when the speed of transactions is not as important.

The British medium William Roy earned over £50,000 from his séance sitters. He confessed to fraud in 1958 revealing the microphone and trick-apparatus that he had used.[166] The automatic writings of the Irish medium Geraldine Cummins were analyzed by psychical researchers in the 1960s and they revealed that she worked as a cataloguer at the National Library of Ireland and took information from various books that would appear in her automatic writings about ancient history.[167]
“When I made my appointment with Denise for a reading I wasn't a skeptic, it was a matter of (with all do respect to Denise) some medium's are more experienced than others, Denise started telling me things about my father, my nephew and a dog, all four grandparents, whom all have passed, Denise would ask me to validate but all I wanted to do is listen, I was just taken by her accuracy, then Denise went on to tell me things about myself and I’ll tell you with all my heart, I have not told a soul about my plans for my future, Denise ev...“

“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...“

The psychical researchers Eric Dingwall and Harry Price re-published an anonymous work written by a former medium entitled Revelations of a Spirit Medium (1922) which exposed the tricks of mediumship and the fraudulent methods of producing "spirit hands".[132] Originally all the copies of the book were bought up by spiritualists and deliberately destroyed.[133] In 1923, the magician Carlos María de Heredia revealed how fake spirit hands could be made by using a rubber glove, paraffin and a jar of cold water.[134]
Ghosts are not the same as evils spirits. How we interact with them is a little different.  If you have a ghost in the house, it can make it uncomfortable to live there. You might have some unfinished business to take care of.  I have a one hour training that will help you gain some tools and insight on this subject. This way you can maintain your house and perimeter, sleep better and the kids won’t have scary dream as much. 
A private reading session is scheduled for one person and the current fee is $850US. Up to four people may attend the same session, for an additional $100US per person. It is however advised that all participants (sitters) be related or looking to connect with the same family. Audio and Video taping is not allowed but note taking is STRONGLY SUGGESTED. This is for in person readings at John's office on Long Island, NY or over the phone readings as well. (Please know that fees are subject to change over time).
Michael Shermer criticized mediums in Scientific American, saying, "mediums are unethical and dangerous: they prey on the emotions of the grieving. As grief counselors know, death is best faced head-on as a part of life." Shermer wrote that the human urge to seek connections between events that may form patterns meaningful for survival is a function of natural evolution, and called the alleged ability of mediums to talk to the dead "a well-known illusion of a meaningful pattern."[201]

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.
Likewise, the entire audience can affect the clarity of the spirit communication at a psychic medium demonstration. If the audience as a whole is very open, accepting and light-hearted, this helps the psychic medium, as it would help any speaker on stage. If the audience as a whole is skeptical, apathetic or angry, this can negatively affect the psychic medium, as it might affect any speaker in front of such a group. Spirit communication is about energy. If the energy in the room is low, it makes it more difficult for the psychic medium to raise his or her energy to connect with spirit. If the energy is high, it can assist the psychic medium to raise his or her energy.
I had a four-hour call once. It was almost the entirety of my shift for the night, and I wound up being the one who cut it off. I made some sort of claim about needing to "recharge my powers," but I was really just completely emotionally drained. This elderly woman was going to die soon, and she wanted to check in on all her departed friends first to get a preview of what heaven would be like. She was basically asking me to act out a whole high school reunion full of people I didn't know. I actually thought it was sweet at the time. She said, "I know I'll be in heaven soon, and I want to touch base with all these people, and I need to be sure I'm going to see them there." Of course, I pretended we got in touch with everybody, because the first rule of psychically contacting somebody's dead loved ones is never pretend they're burning in hell. I know you have a great devil-voice impression; this is not the time to use it.
Four, some psychic mediums get feelings or sensations in their body and mind, both physical and emotional. A spirit can make the psychic medium feel sad if they are trying to convey the message of depression. Or they can make the psychic medium’s lungs feel tight if they are trying to convey the message that someone had pneumonia or lung cancer. It is not uncommon that a psychic medium will feel a painful sensation in the head if the spirit is trying to relay the message that there was a head trauma that caused death. This could be due to an auto accident or suicide (or any number of causes), so the spirit will also send another message—perhaps a telepathic picture of a smashed car—to complete the story for the psychic medium.

Colin Fry was exposed in 1992 when during a séance the lights were unexpectedly turned on and he was seen holding a spirit trumpet in the air, which the audience had been led to believe was being levitated by spiritual energy.[183] In 1997, Massimo Polidoro and Luigi Garlaschelli produced wax-moulds directly from one's hand which were exactly the same copies as Gustav Geley obtained from Franek Kluski, which are kept at the Institute Metapsychique International.[184]

So, drawing upon my long psychic internship, which consisted mostly of watching The Mentalist, I asked her for three colors and a word. Then I said something like, "Sometimes when you're at a party, you don't mind being the center of attention, but occasionally you'd rather just hang out with a small circle of friends." If you find yourself agreeing with that statement, you belong to an exclusive club called Everybody. I also told the woman that she had a lot to be proud of, but that she also lived with a nagging doubt keeping her from fully embracing life. I told her this doubt was "likely financial or romantic," because those two things sum up roughly 100 percent of problems in the universe.

With my career in radio at some of the biggest stations in the country, including Sirius,  I have had the opportunity to have the best and most famous psychics and mediums on my programs. When Trenny came to me as someone strongly recommended by a friend, I tried her. Trenny is not only extremely accurate in pinpointing loved ones that have crossed over, but her intuitive guidance is spot on. She is loving, compassionate, patient,  humble and very intelligent. Many are coming out of the woodwork claiming to be mediums, but Trenny Simmons is the real deal. A heartfelt 5 stars for this gifted and lovely woman.
“I recently had a telephone reading from Denise Lescano. It was a wonderful experience. Several of my relatives came through to bring messages for me. My son committed suicide awhile ago, and Denise picked up on that. My son's grandfather, who has been gone for almost 18 years, came through first and relayed that he has been waiting from my son to bring him to the light. Then my son came through. Denise was so in touch with him. The messages my son had for me were things that no one else would have known about, except my son and I. My ...“

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. 

While there are a few different forms of mediumship, I work as a mental medium, which means I communicate with spirits through the use of telepathy. Spirits impress my mind and body with thoughts and feelings that come in the form of "clairs." I mentally "hear" (clairaudience), "see" (clairvoyance), "know" (claircognizance) and/or "feel" (clairsentience) messages from spirits. I like to say that I act as the bridge between the spiritual and the physical world, with the intention of healing both worlds.
During our interview, ESP’s manager “Sandy” told me I would make $7 an hour. (The contract indicated I could make as much as $12 an hour.) But it turned out the “per hour” meant not how much time I was logged on but how much time I had callers on the line. Various places in the contract and the guidance site indicated that during a “pay period” of uncertain length, I had to have talked for 30, 120, or 600 minutes in order to qualify for a paycheck. I realized I could make more money if I set up a card table in front of my house and asked for donations for readings.
In a Psychic Reading, I use my psychic abilities and my connection to spirit to tap into you and see what is going on in your life. You will always get honest truth and spiritual guidance. I never tell people what they want to hear. That doesn't help anyone. I hope that what comes out will be what you are hoping for depending on the subject matter, but it may not be. Sometimes you may need to hear another side to a situation so that you can a better decision about a particular situation. I can tap into the root of what is going on, and the people around you, to see where things are heading on your current path. Your guides will come through to help you make decisions and see what you need to look out for along the way.

On the one hand, they personify the medium's hidden impulses and wish life. On the other, they are also shaped by the expectations of the medium's sitters, the medium's experience, the cultural background, and the spirit of the times."

In the late 1920s and early 1930s there were around one quarter of a million practising Spiritualists and some two thousand Spiritualist societies in the UK in addition to flourishing microcultures of platform mediumship and 'home circles'.[18] Spiritualism continues to be practiced, primarily through various denominational spiritualist churches in the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. In the United Kingdom, over 340 spiritualist churches and centres open their doors to the public and free demonstrations of mediumship are regularly performed.[19]
The word clairvoyance means “to see clearly.” This does not refer to the sense of sight, but rather to seeing with what some call the “inner eye” or “third eye.” Others may refer to this ability as a “sixth sense.” What’s common to all of these terms and definitions is that they refer to an ability to perceive hidden truths. Clairvoyant psychics have the ability to tap into energies that the average person is not able to perceive. For this reason, many people turn to clairvoyants for guidance in various areas of their lives.
