Last week I had a Reading by Shalimar and it was incredible! She was “right on” with things about me and/or connected to me in life. Shalimar was caring, compassionate and friendly! I highly recommend her!!! Tana

I had an excellent reading with Stefan. He was extremely accurate and knew things about me that only I know. There’s no way he could have guessed what he said. 5 stars, well worth it
