I really hate to say it, but, people please don't put any stock in to Mr. Van Praagh's work. I've read enough about the man and his checkered past to never want to look at his face again. He's become a multi millionaire because of his suave ability to coerce vulnerable people. There are authentic psychics out there but they're rare, very rare. Please, if you need the aid of a psychic do your research. There are more frauds in the psychic community than legitamate ones.

James is one of the few psychics who have some legitimate merit. Only other legit mediums I can think of other than my cousin is the guy on Most Haunted.

Dear James, when your show was on T.V. I watched it every time. I bought one of your books about the other side and it along with Sylvia's helped me through the passing of my 12-yr. partner (At 45) His chart was completed. I cannot thank you enough for all the help you have been by sharing your gifts with us. Being from a "Christian Family" as we called ourselves (Living a Label) not our authentic self. Eckhart Tolle and Oprah have opened our eyes to how we do not live in the Now but our past and future=(Time) instead of living each moment as it unfolds. Being Labeled a "C" ment that Pshics were of the 'Devil' and on and on. I learned from Sylvia the mantra "Take what you want and leave the rest" and I do every new book or material I read, your intuition will bopp you on the head if it isn't truth. One thing may be a truth to one and not the other. I read and re-read your book because your words were so comforting that I did the right thing as my dear sweetie crossed over, John Edwards has been another person I followed, and read and re-read his books too. When I clear my clutter of books, Yours and the above mentioned are KEEPERS the rest go out the door for someone else to read one time and pass on. God Bless!!Nancy New Oxford, Pa.
