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).
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. 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.
Do compose your emotions and appearance to hide any revealing information about yourself. Your facial expression, style of dress, personal mannerisms, and emotional outbursts can tell a psychic, especially a false one, a great deal about you to make it look like she knows all these things from a paranormal reading, when in fact, she is merely interpreting your physical appearance or reactions.
“Hi Denise I just wanted to send you a follow up email. After having had an opportunity to listen to our recorded session many times, I wanted to let you know that several items that you discussed with me have become clearer now. There were so many references that would have applied to several people in my family that I could not make the exact connection, but have since put the pieces together. Its interesting how some of the items that you conveyed to me didn't really register at the time of the reading, but are so very clear now....“
My favorite thing to do is to raise awareness so people like you can put it into everyday action. I don’t think a private reading is what you need – you might want to join the Evolve community. It is a great way for people to jump in and connect not only with me, but with other like-minded folks from all around the world. There’s too many benefits to list being an evolve member here – but CLICK HERE and you might be one of the five people who win a private reading each month just because they are Evolvers (that’s what the community has nicknamed each other)!
A card reader is a data input device that reads data from a card-shaped storage medium. The first were punched card readers, which read the paper or cardboard punched cards that were used during the first several decades of the computer industry to store information and programs for computer systems. Modern card readers are electronic devices that can read plastic cards embedded with either a barcode, magnetic strip, computer chip or another storage medium.
Karee is amazing!!! My mother passed away in May and I have just been so DESPERATE for lack of a better word to contact her. I went to two different mediums before Karee and they were right about a couple of things but it mostly felt like they were guessing or they would ask me a lot of questions and kind of pull from the answers I gave them. Karee hardly asked me ANY questions and the things she said and knew just completely blew me away. It was almost like being in the same room with my mom again. She brought up silly little childhood memories that only my mom would know about. She told me things in exact words that my mom would have used. I miss her so much and I am so thankful to Karee. She's the real deal and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.
When a clairvoyant psychic gives you a phone psychic reading, she is seeing and hearing psychic information as well as feeling energy. Over the phone, a psychic cannot read your body language or guess information based on your appearance and responses. A clairvoyant psychic must tune into your energy and connect with your higher self. On the phone a clairvoyant psychic can only get information directly from Psychic Energy. When you are sitting face to face with a psychic, their brain might pick up clues from you and the environment in and not be able to consciously sort that out. Some disreputable psychics actually do this on purpose in order to tell you what you what you want to hear or to manipulate you in some way.

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.
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.
The exposures of fraudulent activity led to a rapid decline in ectoplasm and materialization séances. 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.
This site works a bit more like a social networking site. There are free chats, and then you can go into private sessions. New users can get a free reading up to 10 minutes. After that, the fees are based on the rate that an individual psychic chooses to charge, and can vary greatly. Speaking or chatting with the more experienced advisors on Oranum will cost more credits.
From its earliest beginnings to contemporary times, mediumship practices have had many instances of fraud and trickery. Séances take place in darkness so the poor lighting conditions can become an easy opportunity for fraud. Physical mediumship that has been investigated by scientists has been discovered to be the result of deception and trickery. Ectoplasm, a supposed paranormal substance, was revealed to have been made from cheesecloth, butter, muslin, and cloth. Mediums would also stick cut-out faces from magazines and newspapers onto cloth or on other props and use plastic dolls in their séances to pretend to their audiences spirits were contacting them. Lewis Spence in his book An Encyclopaedia of Occultism (1960) wrote:
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.
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'. 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.
I distinctly remember the call that made me quit: a young guy was calling because his parents had just died in a car crash, and he was contemplating suicide. I just couldn't respond. I said something stupid along the lines of, "I see something good for you coming in the near future." Then when the call ended, I looked his number up online, called the local police department, and warned them. Work snapped at me for violating his confidentiality.
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.
The physicist Kristian Birkeland exposed the fraud of the direct voice medium Etta Wriedt. Birkeland turned on the lights during a séance, snatched her trumpets and discovered that the "spirit" noises were caused by chemical explosions induced by potassium and water and in other cases by lycopodium powder. The British medium Isa Northage claimed to materialize the spirit of a surgeon known as Dr. Reynolds. When photographs taken of Reynolds were analyzed by researchers they discovered that Northage looked like Reynolds with a glued stage beard.
According to James Randi, a skeptic who has debunked many claims of psychic ability and uncovered fraudulent practices, mediums who do cold readings "fish, suggest possibilities, make educated guesses and give options." Randi has a standing offer of $1 million US dollars for anyone who can demonstrate psychic ability under controlled conditions. Most prominent psychics and mediums have not taken up his offer.
If you’ve done any research online for the top psychics, you’ve likely come across plenty of websites claiming to offer free readings by phone or chat. This is usually just a gimmick to get you on the phone. Usually the medium or clairvoyant will allow you to ask them a free question, but you’ll likely only receive some general advice from a script.
1/Sit quietly and think about what you really want from a psychic reading over the phone. Psychic readers can’t tell you winning lottery numbers or what to do with your life. Ethical psychic readers won’t promise to make exes come back, cast money magnet or love spells or tell you that you’ve been cursed and they can shift it for a fee. Good psychic readers can offer insight into what’s going on in your life so that you can make your own decisions. I personally think that’s really important because whilst some of what happens to us might be karma and some things are fated to happen, we are all better off putting our energy into stepping into our power and embracing our destiny.
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).
We use our intuition all the time without realising it, we may even call it 'a gut feeling' but we have all experienced that sense of 'knowing'. It is us however who decide whether or not to develop our gifts further. Commonly, Psychics will tell you that they were 'guided' by spirit or the universe to follow a spiritual path; this is an innate part of who Psychics are. .
