If you’ve noticed more of your girlfriends booking in psychic readings to help them work through life’s ups and downs, you can blame the trend on Hollywood medium-to-the-stars Tyler Henry. And, it turns out there are some studies on the subject. Let’s get gazing…

The Psychic Lowdown

“A good psychic is a counsellor, advice giver, coach and a reliable shoulder to cry on,” says psychic Rose Smith. During a reading, which can go for 15 minutes or up to an hour, a psychic will “channel into another energetic universe”, explains Smith, “[to] see likely outcomes and read energy past, present and future”. But don’t go into a sesh expecting to find out the exact start date of that dream job of yours. “It’s not all about future predictions,” Smith explains. “Good psychics will give options [to problems] that you may not have thought of. They also allow you to vent, releasing pent-up emotions and stress. A problem shared is a problem halved.”

The Science

Now, this is interesting … A lab at Princeton University was dedicated to researching the effectiveness of ESP and telekinesis for 30 years (it closed back in 2007). The lab’s founder Robert G. Jahn was convinced of the sixth sense possibilities, despite not having the support of his scientific peers. “If people don’t believe us after all the results we’ve produced [in studies], then they never will,” Jahn lamented.
