Best Fortune Tellers In Minnesota

October 28, 2013 7:00 AM

Fortune telling as entertainment is a widely accepted practice in our popular culture. No longer is it seen as sorcery, soothsaying or divination such as described in the Bible. Instead, fortune telling has become fun and informal. We are beguiled by the teller’s predictions, advice, suggestions and affirmations. What follows are five metro-area people who have served many clients with their craft.

Alison James
Minneapolis, MN

As a medium, Alison helps you connect with your dearly departed or your former pet. As a psychic, she answers question that do not involve making a soul connection with departed and can be in regards to career, relationships, pets and so much more. As an animal intuitive, she assists in the understanding of your animal companions. She recommends initiating contact with your departed after allowing yourself to grieve and allowing time to mend some of your emotions. Alison makes these profound connections in an easy-going and professional manner. You must have patience during a reading, Ms. James cautions, because although you may be eager to connect with your loved ones, sometimes other spirits (even pets) will come through before the person you are looking to communicate with.
