Brad's Reading by Chris Dufresne (Sylvia Brown's son)




Chris Dufresne, the son of psychic/best-selling author Sylvia Browne, is a highly respected psychic in his own right who has been in practice for more than 20 years. Chris, who inherited not only his mother’s significant psychic abilities, but also her writing talent, is the author of two books, My Psychic Journey and My Life with Sylvia Browne and works alongside her in the Northern California area. He has appeared in a featured article in People magazine, and has also been profiled on TV in Bay City Limits, Northwest Afternoon, and the Montel Williams show. He’s the father of two children, Angelia and William.



First I want to say...I am completely STUNNED how spot on almost everything was/is.

A little background behind Brad....

Brad is a perfectionist by nature. He has always loved Archeology, and used to want to be an Archaeologist. He also loves anything that has to do with Atlantis. He has been working towards starting his own business, and wants to work on buying some properties..both for "rentals" and for us. He totally thinks everything through...ever little step.

There were no questions asked in the beginning, just an exchange of pleasantries and on to the reading. Also, the girls were still asleep when the reading took place, so he couldn't hear them to base any of his "visions" on.

So here were some of the things that Chris saw.....

  • Both Brad and I will live to be in out 80's. Brad will pass on before me, and I will follow not to long after.
  • Our children will bury us. (This was important to us...just want to make sure it was the other way around)
  • Brad is an "Old Soul" and this is his last life.
  • His prior lives were: A Pioneer, A Roman, An Egyptian, and An Atlantian (this is where his background I gave before fits in) We can now see why he has the interests that he has.
  • We will have 1 more child and said child will be a BOY, conceived in May 2008. hahaha
  • Our last 3 children will be the trouble makers. again...hahaha
  • 2008 is OUR year! A lot will be happening for us.
  • We will be financial in a good place (we have it already worked out that our debt will be gone as of March 2008)
  • We will be moving in 2008 and locally. (We have been looking for property nearby so we can build our next house.
  • We will own a vacation home sometime in the next 2 years, as well as have 5 "rental" properties (Again...something we have been looking into as well)
  • He sees us owning our own Business with a partnership. He said such partnership if we do 50/50, Brad will be doing more than 50% of his share of work. (Brad and a Friend have been in discussions of "said" business for the last 6-8 months and it has already been said that Brad would be more involved than said partner)
  • He sees the business doing "Contract" work. (Brad does HVAC, and has also looked into doing other "contract" work jobs)
  • Aprox 10yrs later, we will sell the "business" make quite a profit, and move out of state. (Again...another plan we have had this whole time)
  • Brad's mom within the next 2 years will live much closer to us. (The plan is for us to find property, get a modular home, live in it while we build our house, and then move his Mom into the modular home)
  • He said that I will see a significant difference in my weight loss come Feb 2008. (I just jointed a gym 3 weeks ago and have been going 6 days a week)
  • He said that Brad's mom has been having issues with her lower intestines/upper digestive issues, acid reflux/indigestion, and pressure behind the eyes, to go to the ophthalmologist to get eyes checked for Glaucoma. (she has Diverticulitis, and is going through other testings to find out what's wrong with her stomach, as well as she has had acid reflux pretty bad the last 2 months)
  • Our marriage is strong and long lasting. (we already knew that) :)
  • He said that stocks/bond are not a good investment for us. Real Estate is the way we will go. (We recently sold off all our stocks and like mentioned above have been looking into buying rentals.)
  • His dad...if we continue on our path of looking for him, we will find him in the next 6-7 weeks. That being said...he's a "loner", he's alive, and doing ok. He said that Brad's dad will be no Kind of Grandfather, like Brad is a dad. He told Brad he didn't want Brad to expect much from him as Grandfather material...(we never really wanted him to be a "grandfather" more just for Brad to make piece with the situation.
  • Oh...this is a pretty funny one....Chris said that both Brad and I are "OVER-Analyzers". (That is such an accurate statement....it's SCARY.)
  • He said had I waited till Jan of 2008, I would have never felt compelled to even make an appt with Chris.
  • He also said to Brad before ending his call. "I mean this with the utmost respect to you, and not as a Bad thing. You will never need to call me again. You know where you are going, and what you are doing. You don't need the guidance from anyone else." (I thought that was pretty cool. I guess we are doing ok with ourselves...not that I truly needed anybody to tell me that.)

That's all I can really remember right now, but I will have Brad look it over and see if I missed anything. I hope you enjoyed "his" reading as much as we did. =)

that was so neat! i've been wanting a reading for a while now. not from anyone famous though, just been feeling the urge. i used to get them quite a bit when i was a teen and then steered away from it but feel compelled again. how much did it cost if you don't mind me asking! how long was the reading and it was over the phone? wow, that is amazing!

Melissa said...

It was over the phone, aprox 30-35 min, and it cost $450. YIKES!!! We made the appt about 8 months ago. Sylvia Brown's wait list is aprox 7 yrs now. =)

Jenine said...

Just curious if he was right on while telling you things that would happen in the future gee how did you know he was right on. Psychics are fakes that live for people like you to pay them your hard earned money. Sylvia Browne has already been caught faking several times and yet there still people out that willing piss their money away to her unbelievible. Remember the Shaun Hornbeck case! But hey if your so willing to throw your money away and make a fraud rich, go for it. You May need to call them back though and see if the future holds any common sense for you. Of course deleting comments won't help the fact that you were stupid enough to think someone can predict the future.

Hi!
I was wondering if you had a son like Chris predicted. I had two readings with him. My first reading he told me I would have a baby girl and when I would have her, He was right! I wasn't even pregnant yet when I talked to him. You have a beautiful family, God Bless you!

solow said...

I have had a reading with Sylvia years ago,,,she was VERY accurate, even told me a friend of mine had a spastic colon, the friend was on her way to the dr.s office that day, she really was diagnosed with the spastic colon! Some things weren't EXACTLY on the money, but atleast 90 percent of it was!! I have a reading scheduled with Chris this Thursday,,,I really need some answers so I hope he is highly accurate and can help shed some light! Scary reading all the negetive things about them on the net,,,glad I found your site! I 'll give an update after my reading!!

Pamela said...

solow - just wondering how your reading went?? I had signed up for one and chickened out at the last minute, but it' still on my mind.

Kristi said...

is there any update to this? I've been considering getting a reading, and I'd like to know if the things predicted turned out for you.
Thanks!

I had a reading done by this guy about 4 years ago. He was incorrect on at least 80% of his answers.I made life decisions based on what he told me. I spent $400 for this man to ruin my life. Nothing went the way he said it would. I've lost almost all my personal belongings. I'm now living with my mother who has to support me. I have 3 children, 2 of which hate me. I've had dime store physics give me better reading...Thanks Chris

Well it must be about 11 years ago, and boy oh boy he's upped his fee! Though $150 then seemed steep enough then and I might as well have just ripped it up and thrown the money in the fire. His manner was condescending, which was quite strange, his questions begging for information to be flung his way and subsequently his reactions to what he thought he knew as a result were kind of general. It was obviously guesswork, a lot of things that anyone could just make up with a minimum of information - and in reality not one single thing he said was true, not one single thing came true (apart from my getting a sports utility vehicle, which one could say might happen to anyone in LA at some stage in their lives,and certainly isn't high on my priority of "what's happening in my life" revelations! My friend also had a reading around that time too and also found his manner condescending, and nothing he said regarding any aspect of her life ever eventuated either. A complete scammer, I think - and I've had a lot of readings in my life, good, bad, and indifferent - and he shines out as one of the worst, definitely the snottiest, and certainly the most expensive - which irks one more when the reader is such a charlatan! With a snake oil salesman, at least you actually get a bottle of oil in your hands!

don't get a reading by him... nothing he said was right for me either.

Well considering that Chris has a 8th grade education it make sense he should charge so much for a reading. Have you ever seen him on Sylvia's webcast notice how he never reads any material. That is because he can not read. He speaks with terrible english skills as well and has a tough time forming a complete sentence. Let's not forget a recent car accident were he was charged with drunk driving.

Hi, Did any of the things that Chris Dufresne told you that were supposed to happen in 2008 happen? It looks like you had a baby girl, not a boy?

Anonymous said...

Had a reading by Chris in November, 2009 and so far nothing he said has come true either. He is very expensive and so far I'm not impressed with the reading. He did get a few things right about my life in general but as for the future he was wrong. I'll wait another month or two to see if what he says happens. Has anyone out there had a acurate reading by either Chris or Sylvia???

Anonymous said...

Do not get me wrong I have been around a lot of really good psychics and please trust me when I say Sylvia and Chris are just in it for the money. Chris has many exotic cars that are worth in excess of 2+ million dollars. Whatever you do please choose another psychic. Check out a guy by the name of Gordon Smith he is from Scotland but now lives in England. You can catch him on Facebook and he is awesome. If you will pay Sylvia or Chris for a reading you are throwing your money away. Good Luck...

I had a reading with Chris at the cost of $450 dollars. The man was rude, and couldn,t wait to get off the phone with me.
His comments about my life were so negative I literally felt defeated and insulted by the end.
The man is nasty and a total fraud. Take ur money and go see a someone with more talent at a flee-market.

Well, it looks as though your next child was a boy, but from his birthdate (late October/ early November?), I'd guess he wasn't conceived in May 2008. Plus, he clearly wasn't your last child if you've since gone on to have another daughter.

I've also heard enough of Sylvia/Chris's readings to know that they frequently mention intestinal illnesses, while some of the other stuff (your husband's past lives and you both passing on in your 80s) is impossible to verify.

I won't patronise you as others have done as we should remember that Sylvia and Chris are the bad guys here. It does annoy me, though, that they (and many other psychics) make a lot of money out of defrauding vulnerable and sometimes desperate people.

I've done a lot of research over the past few years as to whether there's ever been conclusive proof of anyone having psychic ability. The general consensus is that there have been many anecdotal stories, but no firm evidence whatsoever. In many cases, "psychic ability" can be easily debunked. With the rise of social networking sites and access to personal genealogy records online, it's VERY easy to find out information about people. Additionally, many of these people use a technique known as "cold reading" which involves carefully analysing a person's body language and making educated guesses about their personality/background.

For more info (about Sylvia especially), check out the excellent "Stop Sylvia" site.

I really believe individuals have a gift and respect Sylvia and her son. However, as a physic myself, I do not believe in charging people $500.00 for a reading. the gift god gives is not meant to get rich off of. It is to be used to help humanity by warning, cleansing and spiritual healing. With that being said, I can recommend people to come to New York, where you can get an accurate reading for less than 50 bucks.

God bless

While I love psychics and a good psychic reading, Chris Dufresne does more harm than good.

Yes, I was a sucker and had a reading with him. He is rude, angry, and disrespectful. Not to mention inaccurate.

Save your money and invest in a quality reading with someone who actually cares about people.

ok so I just had a reading with Chris tonight and let me tell you, I hung up the phone and felt "slimey". He talked so fast and I could feel him wanting to get me off the phone asap. I have been going to an amazing psychic medium for years who I will continue to see and never again will I call on Chris. Very rehearsed, generic answers. I was so excited for my reading too and now I feel a tremendous sense of let down. Honestly, there are amazing mediums in this country who deserve our money more. Such a disappointment.

I had a great reading back in Jan. 1992. Perhaps Chris was having a good day and was not as overworked as he is now. He had a slight condescending attitude. I'd say 95% of what he said was going to happen did happen. He was off on the time of some of the events. He was very clear on describing some of the things I would do, like working out , putting together a fish tank with salt water fish, describing how a friend died and meeting someone that I am supposed to have a serious relationship with. He described this person physical body accurately. He wasn't too clear when these events would happen. Some of this is happening now. Perhaps, he has lost his touch because he's giving too many readings. I just know 21 years ago, he was spot on in my reading.

I had a reading with Chris five years ago. He was very mean and about 90% inaccurate. When he gave me general answers and I asked him for more specifics, he was aggressive, nasty, and even yelled at me (although I remained completely soft-spoken). After I hung up with him, my spirit was completely broken. I was distraught for weeks and I make made many life decisions based upon the inaccurate information that he provided to me.

I was so upset after my reading with Chris, that wrote a four page letter to him telling him of my dipleasure of my interactions with him and howI felt crushed after speaking to him. In addition, I outlined all the inaccurate information that he provided me in my reading and further asked for either a refund or another reading from Chris (thinking that he might have been having an off day). Several months latter, I received a response to my letter from an office manager instructing me that I needed to transcibe my entire 30 minute reading from Chris and have it type written. I was then to highlight all the inaccuracies to be considered for a partial refund. Now, five years later I haven't recieved a refund and nothing he has predicted happened in my life. I am glad that some people had good experiences. I do believe that there are some psychics that have gifts, but I guess they are also human too, susceptible to flaws.

What does his highschool education have to do with anything? Have any of you taken into consideration that he loved his mother and misses her very much? He is reminded of the fact everyday that she is gone I can't imagine the hurt and pain he feels then to deal with people who complain about his attitude but are so great of people that they go and attack his highschool education? I'm sorry but that's heartless and ridiculous to me. Don't be mad because your ugliness and negativity has an effect on YOUR LIFE!!

I had a Mother's Day reading today a gift from my family. Chris was not at all I would of expected a son of Sylvia Browne. He was a wise ass! I asked about my deceased parents spirits being around me. He flat out said no there not! What the hell! Who does that! He also was condescending,sarcastic and rude! It was a rushed reading to say the least. His answers were fast and when pressed would not eleaborate. Just like other people I was totally surprised. I have had other readings with psychics for the same price that in comparison were amazing! And yes my parents came through with others in valadation. I plan on calling his office but I'm not expecting any refunds from this man. Not sincere at all! Total fail! You live and you learn!

Chris read me on radio and was totally wrong on the outcome

Very sad, was hoping to hear better comments about this guy. Just met him recently and could not get a real feel on what kind of person he was. All I could see was how well off he was. Makes me sad to think that his wealth would come from fraudulent readings. When most people work so hard for what they have and then being ripped off by people like that is just plain sad.

Talked. I called Sylvia twice on the phone.This was in regards to a missing person,back in 1994.There was nothing Sylvia could do.Years later I got Chris on the phone why him I don't know,she must of been out of town, call back later.strange thing they lived in San Jose same place I worked.0 next time go to the fairgrounds and say what happened to the grandstand?

I had a reading by Chris after my parents passed away within a short period of time. I was really looking forward to the ready from Chris. Like a lot of other people, Chris just seemed like he wanted to get me off the phone. He cut my reading short by about 10 or 15 minutes. He gave me his impressions first, and then I asked him some questions. He seemed annoyed with my questions. I paused for a few seconds, to read my notes of questions, and he was like, "okay, we are finished." What the heck! I was really disappointed in him as a psychic, and felt totally ripped off. He is a total fraud, and has no business giving people readings or taking their money. I thought about calling his office and asking for a refund. I figured they wouldn't, so why bother. I have had readings by other psychics over the years. I have to say he is the worst psychic ever.
