So many times, people don’t know where to turn when it comes to making a decision about their job, their marriage or other major decisions. People who are confused or want a glimpse of what their future might hold will sometimes turn to psychics to help them make decisions. Many psychics will use tools of the trade to accomplish this. These include tarot cards, crystals, palm readings, tea leaves and much more. In Connecticut, there are plenty of psychics ready to help those who seek their services. All of the psychics here denounce the frauds who might charge $40 a session, tell you that you have a curse on you and follow that up by saying they can remove the curse for $1,000. The psychics here are not of that ilk. These professionals take their work seriously and with responsibility.

“It really irks me when psychics take advantage of people,” said Angelina Diana. “It’s my life’s work,” she declared, adding that being a psychic and a medium came to her later in life and not as child. She does not believe that she has a gift, but rather an ability. That ability is experiencing people’s energies, which empowers them. She also feels that psychics and mediums have a duty to bring out the positives from the other side – from the spiritual world into the physical world. As for tarot cards and crystals, she considers them tools, like training wheels. She doesn’t use them with her clients, but on occasion will turn to tarot cards to refresh her abilities. “I don’t predict the future. I validate someone’s energy. I can empower people to make choices best for them.” Angelina also teaches the ethics and responsibilities of a psychic medium.

When Maria Stevens was nine years old, she had many dreams. She also started seeing things before they happened. Her mother, who was not a psychic, recognized that Maria had been given a gift. Therefore, she sent Maria to live with her grandmother in Cairo, Egypt because her grandmother was also a psychic. “My grandmother taught me all that I would need to know about my gift. For 25 years, Maria has been reading palms, tarot cards and crystals. She uses her gift to help people, to guide them and to protect them. “I can tell people if there is a negative energy or blockage and I help them overcome come it through meditation and prayer.” Maria loves doing what she was born to do and said that even though she has been doing this for 25 years, she feels as though she hasn’t worked a day in her life.
