In 1991, Wendy Grossman in the New Scientist criticized the parapsychologist Stephen E. Braude for ignoring evidence of fraud in mediumship. According to Grossman "[Braude] accuses sceptics of ignoring the evidence he believes is solid, but himself ignores evidence that does not suit him. If a medium was caught cheating on some occasions, he says, the rest of that medium's phenomena were still genuine." Grossman came to the conclusion that Braude did not do proper research on the subject and should study "the art of conjuring."[180]
Modern spiritualists and psychics keep detailed files on their victims. As might be expected, these files can be very valuable and are often passed on from one medium or psychic to another when one retires or dies. Even if a psychic doesn't use a private detective or have immediate access to driver's license records and such, there is still a very powerful technique that will allow the psychic to convince people that the psychic knows all about them, their problems, and their deep personal secrets, fears, and desires. The technique is called cold reading and is probably as old as charlatanism itself... If John Edward (or any of the other self-proclaimed speakers with the dead) really could communicate with the dead, it would be a trivial matter to prove it. All that would be necessary would be for him to contact any of the thousands of missing persons who are presumed dead—famous (e.g., Jimmy Hoffa, Judge Crater) or otherwise—and correctly report where the body is. Of course, this is never done. All we get, instead, are platitudes to the effect that Aunt Millie, who liked green plates, is happy on the other side.[192]
“I made an appointment to see Denise approximately 3 weeks after my younger brother passed away to see if I could connect with him. This was my very first experience with a medium and was a little nervous but very excited to see if my brother would come through to me. Denise made me feel so comfortable when she read for me. Not only did my brother come through but many others did. I was confused in the reading because some of the things Denise told me I did not know about or understand and she told me that I should ask family and frien...“
Ultimately, a psychic reader should be evaluated and judged by what past customers are saying about them.  Most online psychic networks display ratings and reviews on the profile page of each advisor they have inside their network.  This allows you to weed through the low-quality readers and find a great psychic with high ratings and positive reviews. 

An in-depth 20-minute reading with one of our psychic readers, charged to your credit/debit card, costs £32.95. Our psychic readers will always tell you at the end of the 20 minutes and should you wish to extend the telephone call extra minutes are charged at £1.50 per minute. You will never be kept on the phone longer than you want to be and you will know exactly how much you are spending.
I find working with a client remotely is sometimes even more effective than having them sitting across from me. There are fewer distractions, and I am not influenced by their type of dress or how they present themselves. This isn’t to suggest that in-person readings aren’t effective or that all psychics feel that way, but having a phone reading can be at least as useful as seeing someone in person. Remember that psychics can tap into your energy anywhere, making phone readings an effective resource for those seeking long-distance psychic advice.
Hi Karee! I just had to drop you a note because you really helped out two of my friends this past month or so.  My mom, brother, boyfriend, cousin and I have all had life altering readings with you in the past, so I guess I'm not surprised anymore.  One of my friends had her mind put at ease regarding her mother, especially hearing that heaven is like a "picnic" to answer a question secretly sent from her son.  I recommended she speak with you but also I just found out another friend of 25 years, went to you randomly off YELP and was able to connect with her grandfather she had never met. You identified gold/emerald cuff link ear rings she had in her purse.  It makes my heart smile that you are able to give people in pain some peace.  So basically, I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your gift and for being you.
Readers are like artists. They have their own form that makes them unique. At the same time each reading is unique. There is so much to this phenomena. Sure there is a structure to each tool. I believe that knowing the structure for each tool is important. Yet relying on your intuition to know how to treat each reading is the biggest asset for making a reading transform from good to great. References towards the Akashic records, also known as the eternal Book of Life, stems from antiquity. The Old Testament has references that there is a collective storehouse of omniscience.
Psychic mediums have the ability to sense and communicate with beings and energies in other dimensions, including the spirits of people who have died. They are often called upon to help people who have unresolved questions for loved ones who have passed away. Psychic mediums may use meditative channeling, palmistry, psychometric, or readings from tarot cards or crystal balls to facilitate communication with those in other dimensions. This article includes information on what it means to be a psychic medium, how to improve your psychic abilities, and how to use your abilities in the service of others, whether they be people or spirits.

Browning seized the supposed materialized head, and it turned out to be the bare foot of Home. The deception was not helped by the fact that Browning never had lost a son in infancy."

One, some psychic mediums see spirits. Not every spirit chooses to show himself or herself to a psychic medium who has this ability, but many of them do. If the psychic medium can see spirits, part of the communication will be based on sight. A psychic medium may see something in their mind’s eye (as an inner vision), or they may see spirits the way they see other people (as a physical manifestation, except the spirits are more ethereal, ghostly).
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.
Try actively communicating with spirits. A good way to start is by finding a medium ship circle, a group of mediums who gather to receive messages from the other side. This will give you an introduction to the setting that should be arranged for effective communication. Once you're comfortable with the process, try it on your own, or invite other mediums to join you.
“"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...“
14. You feel the presence of Spirits – You sense that there *could* be a spirit, but you’re not sure. Maybe you feel like someone is watching you, but it’s just you and Fido hanging out, snacking on popcorn and watching Game of Thrones.  You may feel a sudden wave of emotion, such as sadness or anxiety associated with the presence. (clairsentience)
If you are considering consulting a psychic medium, check the company’s credentials on its website and look for negative reports or criticism through watchdog organizations. You might want to check with the Better Business Bureau also. A psychic medium reading conducted over the phone can be very frustrating if the medium really isn’t psychic and you aren’t getting reliable answers to your questions.
I would encourage anyone thinking of moving from giving psychic readings face to face to giving psychic readings over the phone to give themselves a bit of practice first.  Enlist a few trusty friends to round up a few volunteers and arrange a time for you to give them a psychic reading over the telephone for free.  Then ask for feedback on how they think you did.
In 1954, the psychical researcher Rudolf Lambert published a report revealing details about a case of fraud that was covered up by many early members of the Institute Metapsychique International (IMI).[163] Lambert who had studied Gustav Geley's files on the medium Eva Carrière discovered photographs depicting fraudulent ectoplasm taken by her companion Juliette Bisson.[163] Various "materializations" were artificially attached to Eva's hair by wires. The discovery was never published by Geley. Eugéne Osty (the director of the institute) and members Jean Meyer, Albert von Schrenck-Notzing and Charles Richet all knew about the fraudulent photographs but were firm believers in mediumship phenomena so demanded the scandal be kept secret.[163]
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]
I believe that we are all connected to each other and to everything within the universe (quantum physicists agree with me but they explain it a bit differently!)  When we give psychic readings, we’re tuning into that psychic connection so it really doesn’t matter whether the person is in front of you, in the next room or four thousand miles away.  Personally, I think that giving a psychic reading over the phone is better because the psychic reader isn’t distracted (or unwittingly helped) by any visual information.
The spiritualists Arthur Conan Doyle and W. T. Stead were duped into believing Julius and Agnes Zancig had genuine psychic powers. Both Doyle and Stead wrote that the Zancigs performed telepathy. In 1924 Julius and Agnes Zancig confessed that their mind reading act was a trick and published the secret code and all the details of the trick method they had used under the title of Our Secrets!! in a London Newspaper.[141]
8/After you’ve had your psychic phone reading, whilst it’s all fresh in your mind, you might want to write down new ideas or perspectives that have come out of the psychic reading or things that you want to actually do as a result.  I always urge people to give destiny a hand and come out from underneath the duvet, so if you’ve had a psychic reading to talk about what’s going on in terms of your career, for example, you might want to draw up a mini action plan about investigating courses or following up with contacts and networking.
Later I talked to a friend about my guilt over participating in this scam when most of my callers would be better served by seeing an actual therapist. “Not necessarily,” she said. “Sometimes you just want someone to give you an answer. Therapists don’t give you an answer. Haven’t you ever been to a psychic?” When I confessed that I have, she said she had, too.
Three, some psychic mediums receive messages telepathically, as an inner knowing or inner sensing. Messages are sent from the spirit’s mind to the psychic medium’s mind, and vice versa. Here, the spirit might flash a picture or a word in the psychic medium’s mind. Spirits have the ability to use the psychic medium’s brain as a file cabinet, and they will search through that psychic medium’s knowledge and experiences for ways to best communicate what they want to convey.
The fraudulent medium Ronald Edwin confessed he had duped his séance sitters and revealed the fraudulent methods he had used in his book Clock Without Hands (1955).[164] The psychical researcher Tony Cornell investigated the mediumship of Alec Harris in 1955. During the séance "spirit" materializations emerged from a cabinet and walked around the room. Cornell wrote that a stomach rumble, nicotine smelling breath and a pulse gave it away that all the spirit figures were in fact Harris and that he had dressed up as each one behind the cabinet.[165]

A) Everyone gets communication during their reading. Trenny has never had a reading where no one came through for someone. Even if you think you don't have many passings in your life, you do. Relatives and friends of relatives you may have never even met tend to show up during readings. And don't be surprised if a loved one of one of your friends shows up. The spirits use the reading as an opportunity to get messages to loved ones if needed. 
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.

The medium Henry Slade was caught in fraud many times throughout his career. In a séance in 1876 in London Ray Lankester and Bryan Donkin snatched his slate before the "spirit" message was supposed to be written, and found the writing already there.[75] Slade also played an accordion with one hand under the table and claimed spirits would play it. The magician Chung Ling Soo revealed how Slade had performed the trick.[76]

“Hi Denise, I came to your Gallery Reading last month in Naples. I had a great time. When it came to my turn, I was really surprised as to who came through. My old friend Bill, who was a real character. He certainly showed his fun loving side that evening. Everyone had a good laugh, just as he would have made folks laugh when he was alive. There was absolutely nothing scary about any of it. Just like sitting in your living room with old friends. I'll be back."...“
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.
Scientists who study anomalistic psychology consider mediumship to be the result of fraud and psychological factors. Research from psychology for over a hundred years suggests that where there is not fraud, mediumship and Spiritualist practices can be explained by hypnotism, magical thinking and suggestion.[41][42] Trance mediumship, which according to Spiritualists is caused by discarnate spirits speaking through the medium, can be explained by dissociative identity disorder.[43]

In 1910 at a séance in Grenoble, France the apport medium Charles Bailey produced two live birds in the séance room. Bailey was unaware that the dealer he had bought the birds from was present in the séance and he was exposed as a fraud.[111] The psychical researcher Eric Dingwall observed the medium Bert Reese in New York and claimed to have discovered his billet reading tricks.[112] The most detailed account at exposing his tricks (with diagrams) was by the magician Theodore Annemann.[113]
Rebecca Rosen has served as a bridge between this world and those who have crossed over to the other side for the past 10 years. Her work has led to many guest appearances, including Entertainment Tonight, The Rachael Ray Show and Nightline, and her first book, Spirited: Connect to the Guides All Around You (HarperCollins). Due to the high and growing demand for spiritual truth, she has committed herself fulltime to serving as a medium and also educates thousands of people around the country with her seminars, lectures and workshops. Learn more about Rosen by visiting her website. 
A very large part is played by fraud in spiritualistic practices, both in the physical and psychical, or automatic, phenomena, but especially in the former. The frequency with which mediums have been convicted of fraud has, indeed, induced many people to abandon the study of psychical research, judging the whole bulk of the phenomena to be fraudulently produced.[55]
The article about this phenomenon in Encyclopædia Britannica places emphasis that "… one by one spiritual mediums were convicted of fraud, sometimes using the tricks borrowed from scenic "magicians" to convince their paranormal abilities". In the article it is also noted that "… the opening of the wide ranging fraud happening on spiritualistic sessions caused serious damage to reputation of the movement of a Spiritualism and in the USA pushed it on the public periphery".[205]
A reader radiates a 1" to 20" electrical field around itself. Cards use a simple LC circuit. When a card is presented to the reader, the reader's electrical field excites a coil in the card. The coil charges a capacitor and in turn powers an integrated circuit. The integrated circuit outputs the card number to the coil, which transmits it to the reader.
Brenda was insightful, truthful and compassionate. I have had several readings from several different readers and she was dead on with all of them ... The consistency from all of them is a bit overwhelming. She definitely made me feel very safe and I left feeling so incredibly happy. I will definitely be going back to her for more readings. I would highly recommend you see her too ...
