“Apparently, people really want to know the future,” says psychic life coach and medium Alexis Reyes. After being named Best Psychic in New Times' annual Best Of 2015, Reyes had close to 400 missed calls within a week. “The response has been amazing. People were showing up at my door. We even had a guy that would just stand outside. It was kind of weird.” That’s when she realized she needed to create a sacred space to carry out her readings that
That new space, dubbed Alexis' Fairytales, is now open (by appointment only) in South Miami at 10300 Sunset Dr., but walk-in and she might just see you — you know, depending on your vibe. “At the least, we’ll get you an appointment to come back,” says Reyes.

“I feel like I have this purpose now. It wasn’t always like that before, but we are our own harshest critic. It’s really about what you put out there and how you feel about yourself. If you can sit in Miami traffic on your way to work and be happy, that’s how you know you’re really happy. I love going to work."
While Alexis’ Fairytales is closed for readings on weekends, she’ll open up slots for customers who can’t make it during the week because of work or obligations. “The goal is and will always be to help others, on their time.” If you've never seen a psychic and are now getting the itch to try, Reyes is your girl. Or, if you're a cosmic junkie, Alexis' Fairytales will soon end up on your speed dial.
What are you waiting for? Your future awaits.
