In 1918, Joseph Jastrow wrote about the tricks of Eusapia Palladino who was an expert at freeing her hands and feet from the control in the séance room. In the séance room Palladino would move curtains from a distance by releasing a jet of air from a rubber bulb that she had in her hand. According to the psychical researcher Harry Price "Her tricks were usually childish: long hairs attached to small objects in order to produce 'telekinetic movements'; the gradual substitution of one hand for two when being controlled by sitters; the production of 'phenomena' with a foot which had been surreptitiously removed from its shoe and so on."
One of my favorite calls was somebody who wanted a psychic reading of her cat. It had been throwing up and she wanted to know why. I hemmed and hawed, "It feels like a stress around something involving morning or evening ... is she being fed regularly?" Eventually it became clear that the cat was really sick and unfortunate enough to belong to someone who thought psychics had more training than veterinarians. The call ended with me saying, "I think the cat wants to go to the vet, and throwing up is the sign she's giving you."

“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....“
“Hi Denise, I just wanted to thank you once again for the amazing reading you gave me this afternoon. I already knew you were the real deal, but the validation that comes from the reading is amazing. Connecting me with Jack and Earl was beyond what I expected. They meant a great deal to me, and were very instrumental in helping to shape me into the person I am today. I was pretty emotional from finding out that they had passed, but elated at the same time, knowing that they are watching over me, and helping to guide me through my mo...“
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).
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.
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.
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.
Eventually, word got around that I was delivering messages from spirit. People started calling me to contact specific people for them and to get guidance. Once I embraced my gift, I realized I had just barely scratched the surface of what was to come. Ever since, I have been exploring and expanding these many gifts. I am grateful and excited every day to meet with my clients and do this incredible work.
They're going to hang up on you eventually if it's just 10 solid minutes of you going "waaaait for iiiit." So at some point you need to some psychic-ing. You can learn a lot about a person by their area code and the sound of their voice. Pair that with a few basic observations, and you're golden: older women calling psychics tend to be single; they're either divorced or they've just lost their husband. They also tend to have a pet: cats if they're from the East Coast, or dogs if they're from the west. The goal was to fit your caller into a rough category so you could impress them with your "insight" into their life. They're predisposed to believe, and a few accurate predictions hook them in for longer calls.
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.
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.
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. Trance mediumship, which according to Spiritualists is caused by discarnate spirits speaking through the medium, can be explained by dissociative identity disorder.
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!
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.
In 1988, the magician Bob Couttie criticized the paranormal author Brian Inglis for deliberately ignoring evidence of fraud in mediumship. Couttie wrote Inglis had not familiarized himself with magician techniques. In 1990 the researcher Gordon Stein discovered that the levitation photograph of the medium Carmine Mirabelli was fraudulent. The photograph was a trick as there were signs of chemical retouching under Mirabelli's feet. The retouching showed that Mirabelli was not levitating but was standing on a ladder which was erased from the photograph.
There are many ways a person can connect with a psychic. Many still enjoy the “in person” or “face to face” style of receiving their intuition and guidance. However with the advancement, availability and convenience of technology such as cell phones and the internet, a new option has quickly paved the way for the most popular choice of all: Phone Readings.
Absolutely! Lasting love can only be achieved through fully understanding your emotions and what shapes them. Talking to a psychic reader helps you make a deeper connection with your inner self and lets you define your emotional needs in a relationship. It is easier to find what you want when you know what you are looking for! A psychic reading also lets you air your doubts or misgivings about a current relationship and can provide invaluable guidance on the potential success of that relationship. This avoids you spending precious weeks, months - or even years - in an unhappy union that ultimately will only lead to deep unhappiness for you.
There was on item that I had no idea about until I was sharing my reading with friend. My mother kept bringing up spaghetti. I had no clue. Karee asked questions to see how it related but there was absolutely nothing that I could connect it with. We're not Italian, at least not mom. She didn't make it often. It wasn't her favorite. Mom was a good cook and everything tasted great, but spaghetti wasn't something she excelled at. Just couldn't see how it fit. Then a friend of my relayed a story my mom always told. I was mom's first and only child. She had gone to her OB for a check up and the doctor asked if she was feeling anything particularly strange and she said not really. And he asked her if she felt a "tightening" in her stomach. And she said well sort of. He explained to her that she was in labor and that he wanted her at the hospital NOW. Evidently, her and my dad had plans on going out to dinner that night. And evidently the joy of having a child was greatly overshadowed by her missing out on her SPAGHETTI dinner that evening. So now the spaghetti ties in and makes perfect sense.o fur
