Sylvia Browne was a well known psychic who even helped police track crimes. According to the announcement on her website:
World renowned spiritual teacher, psychic icon, author, and lecturer Sylvia Browne passed away at on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 at Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose, CA. Born October 19, 1936, Browne was 77 years old.
For nearly six decades, Sylvia Browne dedicated her life to helping others as a spiritual guide through private readings, past-life regressions and prayer groups that spanned the globe. Having been called upon to assist individuals, families, and law enforcement agencies across the U.S. and Canada on criminal investigations, she worked tirelessly as an advocate for justice, receiving several commendations for the positive impact her contributions provided.
Browne’s certainty in the existence of reincarnation remained a central theme in her philosophy and she believed it held the key to understanding life, though never imposing her values upon anyone. Often, she had been quoted as saying, "Take with you what you want and leave the rest behind."
A best-selling author, Browne published over 50 works throughout her life with 22 appearing on the New York Times Bestsellers List. She was also a frequent guest on radio and television shows including Larry King Live and The Montel Williams Show, where Browne’s appearances quickly became a popular weekly highlight among regular viewers for over 17 years.
But - According to the Huffington Post, Browne's predictions were not always accurate. As I always recommend, take all professed psychics and channelers with a grain of salt. Sometimes they offer you some clarity but no one can predict with certainty.
