She subsequently launched her own corporation, Sylvia Browne Corporation, and a related business, Sylvia Browne Enterprises. Her two business entities controlled her radio and television program appearances, as well as the publication of nearly fifty books on paranormal activity and spiritualism. She also launched her own church in the late 80s, the Society of Novus Spiritus, a Gnostic Christian church based in California.

Born Sylvia Celeste Shoemaker (October 19, 1936 – November 20, 2013) in Kansas City, Missouri, she was a regular guest on TV and radio talk shows mainly offering paid psychic consultations and called readings. Often describing herself as a psychic and spiritual medium, Sylvia Browne could be frequently seen passing on her advice to the wide audience of such shows as The Montel Williams Show and Larry King Live. Due to the big interest in what she had to say, Sylvia Browne even hosted her own, an hour-long, Internet radio show on Hay House Radio. Along with popularity came criticism as well, especially when Browne made false predictions to such missing persons as Shawn Hornbeck and Amanda Berry. Furthermore, she was the one to found a gnostic Christian group known as Novus Spiritus. This self-proclaimed psychic and spiritual medium is said to have published more than 40 books, while most of her income came from 'loyal' customers who were ready to pay $700 for a 30-minute 'treatment' over the telephone.
