In uncertain times, folks flock to specialists in alternative approaches to life.
People come to Halley Elise, sit across from her and
watch her eyes while she watches theirs- hoping she'll
see something heartening in a future that seems, at
least now, a bit bleak.
There was a time when many curiosity seekers came to see
this psychic- people tingling with the desire to try
something out of the ordinary, or people who simply
wanted her to confirm what they already knew.
But that's not the case anymore. Now, people want to
hear that everything is going to be all right. And no

Gas prices are high. Consumer confidence is low. More
houses are on the market, selling at a lower price.
There are fewer jobs and dozens of people out of work.
But that's a good thing for professionals such as Elise
who specialize in seeing, planning and dealing with the
future -- because business is thriving.
Elise said her client list has increased 15 percent over
the past year.
"Halley. . . has taught me to listen to my intentions",
client Francesca Tillem said." I have also learned to
let things go and to believe and love myself".
