are mediums really psychic or just psychotic (hallucinations, hearing voices)?
assuming many of them actually do see spirits and hear voices (presumably of dead loved ones)

I think it’s all nonsense. Most of it is parlor tricks, asking lots of consecutive questions to get you to tell them stuff, stupid sh1t like that. I beleive in the possability but rarely is it true. One would think, if there truely were a medium or psychic with genuine insight, that person would be famous as was Edger Casey was. His association is right here in Virginia Beach, nice little place, you can study his readings and stuff like that.

Strangely enough, my mom died a year and a half ago but today something happened. Dad said he saw someone walking away from the door but there was no one there. He also said he heard someone call him. Asked if he was sure he was awake and he said, in the kitchen, came from the hallway over there. I said be quiet a minute, I think I remember something like this. Yes, when I first got to the house and picked up the recycle box, I heard someone yell Harold, I looked around and no one was out in the neighborhood. He said “that is what i heard”. We haven’t ever had this happen before. But I and my daughter see, or dream in her case, things that will happen to others. We don’t tell them because we don’t think that is why God shows us that sort of thing. Its like an “extra” to another gift we have…understanding babies. It is not a pleasant extra but considering the balance of things it is far more a blessing than otherwise. Just to jinx my feeling that I have today, I will say, I am afraid it means, she (mom) is calling Daddy or that my son should not have gone out tonight. I tried to stop him. That said, maybe nothing will happen.
That is just a feeling I get when someone is going to die. The other is a blast out of nowhere that someone, even a meger aquaintance will get cancer or something else bad. I say nothing for two reasons. I will look crazy when it does not happen, which it won’t when I say something about it . second I don’t think it is God’s will for me to do that, just to pray for them. Most mediums that like advertise are just money grubbers, others are genuine, but I don’t believe I have ever read in the Bible that it is OK for us to use it at all.
Just the opposite. We see it as a curse because it is supernatural.

Are psychics (Sylvia Browne & John Edwards) fake?
I believe in the possibility of ghosts and an afterlife but I am unsure about psychics- mainly the well-known and especially Sylvia Browne. I started reading Sylvia Browne’s ” The Rich & Famous in the Afterlife” because it just seemed too interesting to past by, even if it was fake: James Dean’s actual words after his crash, George Carlin saying “I’ll be damned” as he emerges from the tunnel- what a fun read! In the introduction I came across a lot of the familiar terms I’ve seen in other spiritual books; astral projection, reincarnation, the akashic records. I thought, “Hmm, all this seems to be adding up.” and I started buying into it, actually calling my girlfriend to tell her all this mind blowing information about Albert Einstein working with Galileo on time travel that will be accessible in 2040 through the Bermuda Triangle. But after I researched her, she did seem a bit priggish. After the Anderson Cooper show, seeing how her business manager acted AND how she refused to do the challenge with James Randi, I had been brought back to my senses.
The only reason I question John Edwards is because he has a somewhat equal stature to Browne. I now question the whole operation of the psychic business; not that I didn’t before; I’m just more skeptical. SO HELP PSYCHICS, SPIRITUALISTS, ANALYSTS, WHOEVER, to help give me more insight on what I should buy.
another question: Is astral projection real and to what extent can you travel? I have read Astral Dynamics by Rpbert Bruce and now question that.
Can I get more than yes and no answers. I want evidence and a reason other than just the opinionated “yes” and “no”.
