In uncertain times, we're all looking for answers. Some turn to a financial adviser, some to clergy and others to clairvoyants. If you're the latter, experts say the best thing you can bring to a session with a psychic is an open mind. You may also want to bring a recording device, notepad or someone else as a backup to hear what you miss -- if the psychic agrees. Here are some psychics on Long Island:
Jeffrey Wands: Psychic Eye Media, 8 Haven Ave., Suite 223, Port Washington, 516-883-5959, jeffreywands.com

"When I'm on the radio, questions go from careers to love," Wands says. "I bridge the gap from here to the spirit world and close that bridge or allow clients to say goodbye to a loved one."
WHERE TO SEE: Call Wands (631-955-9750) 10 p.m.-midnight Sundays during his radio show or 6-10 a.m. on the first Friday of the month.
