This is my experience with a psychic medium named George Anderson. Back in the 80s I used to hear him on a radio station where he would do readings for callers and would relay messages from dead relatives. His accuracy seemed to be very good. When my father died suddenly, I decided to make an appointment to see him, and the first one he had available was a year later.
The only information George Anderson had about me was my first name and telephone number. He had a regular job at the time and was doing readings on a part time basis from his apartment. The night of the appointment I drove out to see him and he lived in a small co-op apartment complex on Long Island. I think the cost of the session was about $50 for the hour, and now he charges over $1000.
George Anderson's method is that he gets messages from the other side using an approach he calls "automatic writing". He scribbles in a notepad very quickly while giving information from the other side. The first thing he asked me was if someone close to me had passed over. OK, that is sort of an obvious question since that would be why about 99% of the people would come to see him. I said yes, and asked if it was a male. Again yes, but that was a 50-50 probability. The next thing he said was startling and the accuracy convinced me that he was legitimate. What he said was that when my father passed over, he was greeted by 2 people named Mary and Salvatore. Those names just happened to be the names of my father's parents. There was no way George Anderson would have known that and I can imagine he could have guessed thousands of name combinations and not gotten the right ones. Those were the first and only names he mentioned that greeted my father.
The rest of the session provided some general information but mainly seemed to say that my father was alright and that things were going to be OK. He also mentioned another name of a relative of mine who passed over, an uncle of mine named Alphonse. Again, the odds of him guessing a name as unique as "Alphonse" are quite small.
At the end of the session, I made another appointment, but it was for about 2 years later. I kept that appointment, but it was nowhere near as good as the first one. Maybe after making contact, the spirits move on to another world. I don't lnow.
I did find a video of him on youtube, and he looks the same as he did in the 80s.
