I recently began to be interested in psychics and mediums, and I am fascinated by this whole world of mysticism and parapsychology. I would like to hear your opinions and experiences of communicating with psychics or mediums. Do you believe in their ability to read auras, contact spirits, or predict the future? And if you have personal experience with psychics, I would be glad to hear your stories.

It is also interesting to know how you approached choosing a psychic or medium, and how much this meeting influenced you. I would appreciate any information or advice regarding this fascinating topic!

I am also very interested in mysticism and parapsychology. It seems to me that understanding this aspect of life can bring us closer to understanding ourselves. I myself have had no experience with psychics or mediums, but I have heard many amazing stories from people who have had similar experiences. If you are interested in learning more about psychics, then I can recommend the site https://asknebula.com/psychic-medium - there you can find information about psychic research and communication with experts in the field. Hope this helps!
