Shows like John Edward Cross Country, Psychic Detectives and Psychic Kids, featuring Chip Coffee, have hit the air waves.

No longer are the days of whispering ” I went to see a psychic” are needed. No longer do you need to fear a negative response. Now, more than likely the person you tell will want to know how it went, and who did you see!
Have you ever thought about seeing a psychic or a medium? Maybe you have already visited one. How much did they charge, and what did you get for your buck? Celebrity psychics offer a vast array of opportunities to connect with them. Many offer venues where tons of people attend, in hopes of getting a reading. While others also offer private one on one readings. If you aren’t able to see a celebrity psychic in person, have no fear. Many have authored books teaching you, how you can become psychic too, and tap into your own abilities. You can even find psychics on shopping networks, selling their goods!
With all these opportunities to have your future read or to get a message from your deceased loved one, no wonder people are interested. How great would it be to know what might happen in your future, or to get a message from dad who has passed away years ago. It would be an amazing experience. But, you might be asking yourself how much does it cost? Well we all know television stars, movie stars, and singers make a pretty good buck being a celebrity. Psychics and mediums are no different. They get paid pretty good for their talents too.
Now let us take a take a look at a few psychics and mediums, and see what they offer and what they charge. First off, let us start with the star of John Edward Cross Country.
