Single mother Denise Lescano, from Florida, US, is a much needed support for parents of children who show worrying signs of having a sixth sense. Denise uses her psychic abilities to 'speak to' the spirits and instructs families on how to approach life beyond death. Denise, who believes she has been psychic since the age of nine, said: "My biggest mission in life is to get rid of the fear around what I do. This is not a scary thing, this is a very healing and comforting thing." Often Denise is called to determine whether youngsters are seeing spirits or displaying signs of mental illness: "Sometimes the parents don't know how do deal with their children's abilities."
Daytime talk show mainstay and self-professed psychic Sylvia Browne is dead at the age of 77. A very much in demand speaker and the author of dozens of books including such titles as Afterlives of the Rich and Famous and Visits from the Afterlife, Browne somehow managed to make a good living as a psychic despite numerous high profile failed predictions, a testy demeanor and a penchant for threatening legal action against her critics.

Who says the mystical isn’t alive in America? ABC News profiles a Los Angeles-based pet psychic:
What if somebody told you that a parrot knows he’s beautiful? Or that a Chihuahua has trust issues? These are the insights of Melissa Bacelar.
Bacelar has always felt connected to animals and, after seeking the services of a pet psychic herself, she realized she could hone her psychic ability to communicate with one of her dogs. She then took classes to further focus her visions.
Bacelar is primarily a dog whisperer, but claims she can communicate with any species — though animals that spend more time with people give her more vivid visions and are easier to communicate with than wild animals.
Bacelar insists that pet owners know she’s the real deal because her clients are people that know and love their pets, “so it’s going to be something that I say that lets them know that I’m talking to their pet.”
She currently charges $100 to $200 per session, but charges more for reaching animals who have passed away, “because it’s a little bit more difficult and sometimes it takes a little more time on my part.”
When is someone going to found a metaphysical eBay? Via the Sydney Morning Herald:
A Chinese magician’s online “spell” emporium that is reportedly earning him more than one million yuan ($180,000) each month from clients who hoped to find love, atone for sins or improve relations with their mothers-in-law.
University dropout Luo Shun, 31, began working as a freelance feng shui consultant, charging for advice on auspicious dates and names, in 2002. He opened an online store on Taobao, China’s answer to Amazon, in the hope of reaching some of the country’s 538 million-plus internet users, last October.
Mr. Luo’s site offers more than 160 spells or products. Last month it sold 2,825 spells, the most popular a $53 love charm. Mr Luo declined to discuss how much money he was making but promised to channel his wealth into philanthropy.

Last Wednesday at the well-known prep school Kamigōri High in Hyogo, Japan, emergency services were called out and a reported 18 girls were taken to hospitals after what was described as a bizarre, hour long “state of panic” during which dozens of teen girls began hyperventilating.
The initial incident began when a first year student began complaining of a “bad feeling”. Her hyperventilating sparked a chain of similar events that affected [18 others].
Things got even stranger when rumors began spreading that the incident was actually the work of a psychic attack dealt from the first girl to exhibit the bizarre symptoms. According to the Aioi police department, it was well known amongst the other students that the girl displayed “supernatural senses” and they believed she was to blame for the hospitalizations.
The victims have since been released from the hospital and have shown no long term after effects.

Showbiz psychic Uri Geller has seemingly had a lengthy second career as a secret agent for Mossad and the CIA. Geller was at the Sheffield Doc Fest this week for the premiere of Vikram Jayanti’s The Secret Life Of Uri Geller – Psychic Spy?, a new film that offers compelling evidence of his involvement in the shadowy world of espionage.
In interview, Geller remains coy about his espionage activities. Nonetheless, the psychic acknowledges that his handlers once asked him to use telepathy to stop a pig’s heart. He refused, knowing that if he had succeeded, the next target would almost certainly have been a human. “I tried to execute missions that were positive,” Geller claims. “I said ‘no’ to dark things.”
Jayanti spoke to the high-level officials involved in recruiting and using Geller.
Famed Remote Viewing researcher and physicist Russell Targ joins us to talk about his new book The Reality of ESP. Along the way we discuss non-local consciousness, the Army and CIA psychic spy program that Targ managed, and whether it’s fair to ask a remote viewer how many fingers you’re holding behind your back.

LOVELAND, Colo. (CBS4)– A 65-year-old woman who says she lost her retirement savings to a Loveland psychic is now calling the psychic “a complete ripoff” and says she wants others to hear her story and avoid the mistakes she made.
“I look back on it now and think, ‘How could I have been so stupid?’” Francine Evers told CBS4.
Evers handed over more than $73,000 to psychic Adams Marks in a six-month time frame.
Marks has been charged with theft, crimes against an at-risk adult and intimidating a witness.
He declined to talk to CBS4 about the pending criminal case promising, “I’ll have my lawyer call you.”
Evers decided to open up about her experiences with Marks in the hopes others might come forward if they have had similar experiences with Marks even though she acknowledges “It’s embarrassing.”
She met the psychic in 2009 as she was driving by his Loveland psychic business.
