"A friend told me, as a DNA psychic, I'm a little ahead of my time. It's a little like trying to sell real estate on Mars," says Secord. "I take that as a challenge."

Secord says stars like Tom Hanks and Reese Witherspoon have extra strands in their DNA that allows them to project a special aura, or energy force, which allows them to do special things.

"When I watch a movie like Legally Blonde 2, I try to concentrate on the spiritual dimension of Reese Witherspoon's DNA," Secord says, and that's led him to believe that Witherspoon has the wherewithal to make real progress in the field of animal rights, just as she did in the movie.

Psychic Camp for Kids: At the Enchanted Forest Intuitive Camp, kids are swimming, hiking, and practicing clairvoyance, just like Harry Potter at Hogwarts. At this Asheville, N.C., camp, the counselors say psychic power is hardly fantasy.

"There are children all over the world who are experiencing this gift," says Nancy Baumgarten, host of the summer program.

She says the Enchanted Forest, now in its fifth year, exposes 60 young psychics of tomorrow in such skills as dousing and delving into the energy fields of the spiritual world.

On her Web site, Baumgarten expresses hope that there will soon be "appropriate" high schools and colleges for "intuitive and psychic young people" to hone their "super senses."

I'd have a very simple final exam if I taught at Psych High. Each kid would get a blank piece of paper. If you can guess the questions, you pass. If not, you grow donkey ears and get banished to my dungeon. Visiting Dead Relatives: Your dead relatives may be waiting for you in upstate New York. And if they were loud and pushy, the better your chances of making contact with them, according to some believers.

For more than 100 years, visitors hoping to speak with the dead have been flocking to Lily Dale, N.Y., a community south of Buffalo, where virtually all of the 400 residents claim to believe in spiritualism.

"They say Lily Dale attracts so many spirits that there is something of a waiting line and the pushy ones break through first," says Christine Wicker, author of Lily Dale: The True Story of the Town That Talks to the Dead (Harper).
