Marisa Ryan Psychic Reviews

Has anyone had a reading with Marisa Ryan?

marisa ryan psychic mediumsIf you have….please share your experience in her new listing just added below!  We came across Marisa Ryan’s highly touted psychic abilities via a documentary on the afterlife (The Life After Death Project) and a follow up interview one of the movie’s producers did today on Hay House radio….describing some of the very cool things that Marisa was able to do in describing the unpublished details of a very gruesome crime.  (details she claimed she received, unexpectedly….after being visited by the murder victim in a dream)

Check out Marisa’s listing below – and as with ALL of the psychics, mediums, clairovyants and spiritual professionals we feature, if you’ve had an experience or a reading with her, we’d love to know what you thought!

Marisa Ryan is a psychic medium who has recently been featured in the highly rated (and quite amazing and very highly recommended) documentary “The Life After Death Project”. Her psychic and spiritual transformation was precipitated by the loss of several close family members within a very short time frame (several days) and facilitated a whole host of incredible insights and abilities that you have to read about to believe. (including, in , in September 2002 – a highly evidential experience as a psychic detective, where Marisa provided information to a local police department after being visited by the victim of a murder and given highly specific information about the crime)

  • Well, this was just sad. If she believes even a little bit in the spirituality she is mocking to make a living, I would think she would be a little bit afraid of the bad karma she is sowing for herself. The entire “reading” was based on her trying to make sense of her google search of me. There is a lot to be found on google, but damn, it is hard to connect the dots if you don’t know me. She tried very very hard to connect those dots, and it was rather comical to see her so shamelessly tap dance around it all. Not one single thing in a 50 minute session was legit. This is deception at its highest. Seriously, go find a travelling carnival and give your money to the tarot card reader/tilt a whirl operator, you will certainly have a more genuine experience with a talented cold reader than you will with this comedian.

  • My mother and I met with Marisa this week. Within the first 5 minutes we were completely shocked at the information she was giving us. She had details from my mothers life that are not on the internet. Specific sayings my uncle used to tell my mother when they were younger. I believe everything Marisa said was from her connecting with our loved ones who have passed. I am thankful for the visit we had with her.

  • I had a reading with marissa in August of 2019. At the time I felt that I was directed or guided to her due to some interesting synchronicities including being mentioned by Mike Clelland and Alex Tsakaris on their respective podcasts and also coming across her independently via the windbridge institute among other subtle things. I have a mixed impression about the reading. There were no stellar revelations and some of the things she said could easily have come from search engine results even though I do not have an extensive online presence. There were a few things she said about my general life that were specific enough that she could have gotten completely wrong but didn’t – these would not have been online. She also went with the ‘Native American Spirit Guide’ thing. She has a clear fixation on Native American themes. Her office is decorated with ‘Native American’ themed stuff. She claimed i had a past life as a ‘shaman’ in what is today Peru.
    In all i was neither overly impressed nor overly disappointed. I’m not sure I would have another reading. I would prefer to try someone else to compare received information and approaches.

    • Thanks, Nick – interesting observation on the Native aAmerican theme – that in general, is a pretty stark red flag to me (being a bit of the skeptical voice in our community of site admins) – I do find some of the critiques of Marissa Ryan’s readings to be consistent enough – that I for one, don’t find her interesting or all that credible – although of course, opinions will
      vary. I do know Alex from Skeptiko ( I worked with him years ago when the show was just starting and he was doing research on psychic dogs) – and while I like Alex, I’m not sure I trust
      his intuitions with regard to psychic abilities – although the Windbridge institute folks are in principle – people I tend to listen to with regard to their impressions. (although again, it’s been years since I’ve really seen their medium research – but Mark feels like a serious researcher – and Julie, while def a bit generous with her assesments of many mediums we know – is a super smart and honest resource.

  • It truly feels to me, as though it depends on her current daily circumstances, because in retrospect believe that can affect the intact ness of the connection. Have received good information from her. However last reading feels to have been from ego and collected earthly knowledge based on life experience or either lower spirits because the suggestions would have yielded dangerous consequences. The first 10% of the reading felt right. But as it went on it felt less and less insightful and beneficial;
    90% felt like info from a trickster spirit, versus a loving guide, who exercises prudent guidance for someone at a significant crossroad.
    The more I reflect back on it. The less truthful it was feeling. Did not feel comforting or reassuring by the loosest standards. Please, exercise your awareness and objective judgement. If you have a reading from Marisa, because it can be confusing that she does pick up on enough truth to feel like she has tapped in, but not enough to fill in the remaining 30-40 minutes.
    Please, because believing all of the information can actually yield a perilous short term or long term out come.

  • A lot of her information is really, good, but believe that much of it is fill. Keep in mind with a medium that they are human and suceptible to the same daily stressors or environs as the rest of us. For many of the larger mediums the “show must go on”, despite their present circumstances, daily dietary differences. So might affect their ability to be tapped in a turned on by the higher forces. Last reading had the spirit guide did not feel like the same energetic thumbprint, almost felt like interaction with a subtle but abusive narcissist.
    Also, keep in mind that the first 15 minutes are the most powerful for spirit to come in, because they have to down power their frequency to get closer to the mediums. With Marisa, past the first fifteen minutes you’ll notice more ego based answers which are more from her life’s experiences, which more closely resemble counseling, than answers that might be coming in from the loving light source which we trust, truly knows and loves us.
    Was disheartening for me when finally had this realization; but also some angering knowing that there was a willing money exchange. The larger they get, the more ego and disruptions to their physical being as the heavy schedules might have them so taxed to realize they could be instead, connecting with lower vibration hucksters.
    Think of the example of a bad doctor:
    They might not know that they don’t have your answer; even if they did, they might not want to tell you that they don’t have your answer.

    One last thought, had been meditating for maybe a year, what she told me my guide would say versus what my medition said the guide would say, did not line up at all.
    That created a lot of frustration. Made me think well what is the point of meditating, going within listening to the guidance of personal meditation, learning to trust and recognize own intuition; when I can pay $300 for an overworked person, who does have at least some good mediumship skills to completely disempower me and take the wind out of my sails?
    P.S. Basic intuition shows up by either a wide open accepting feeling in your heart space, to validate something for you. And more of a clenching, uncomfortable quest feeling in you gut area as more of a stern signal to pay attention, something might not be as much for our greater good.
    Sure do hope this helps someone.
    Thank you so much for having this important space here, to sound off.

  • I was very impressed with my first reading. I must preface this by saying that I lost a child years ago and I was in a vulnerable emotional state. My second reading was not as impressive as a lot of the information from the first reading was repeated. My third reading was eye-opening. It was at this reading that I realized that much of the information she gave me at the first one was available through googling. She mentioned some fallacies reported through the newspapers. I was also told I had a native American spirit guide. I actually believe I may have one but she could not give me any more information. I do feel that Marisa has some psychic abilities but that she does research and is not as amazing as she claims. I was very upset to discover the fact that I was partially duped. I spent $300 for past life reading. Told I was a herbalist that was killed as a witch. Same as 3 others I know. I was told I had “many” but nothing more. Marisa is out on a dangerous cliff.

  • Marisa appeared to have looked up the fake name I provided and made some very specific guesses based on googling that name. Stuff that pops up in the margin on a google search… not subtle. She told me my spirit guide is an old, Native American man – looking at others’ comments above, this is apparently commonplace. She mentioned extraterrestrials, also something I saw in the reviews above, and said it was exceedingly rare in readings. She told me I’m psychic, that I have a lot of people who love me, and that I should come to her mediumship development course next year. Boo.

    I don’t discount the people who have written in with positive experiences. I’m feeling generous, so I’ll say … perhaps there are people who are psychic, but not consistently enough to make a career of it, and so they resort to the internet to get through the day.

    • Interesting experience, Alex – thanks very much for sharing – and if true, I’d say a much more damning indictment of Marisa specifically – but I wouldn’t extrapolate out how a single experience like yours would be representative of the habits/traits or inclinations of an entire group. I’d be super skeptical of the IQ of any “psychic” who mentioned extraterrestrials, or who referenced cliche’s or tropes about Native American spirit guides….and certainly, any up selling to other programs would be a red flag as well – so I’m glad you’ve added to the public record of expereinces with Marisa Ryan – but I remain skeptical that most “psychics” are proactively cheating – or sleuthing – or researching future clients – although of course, I’d hate to believe that’s true – so my aversion may stem from there 🙂

      • I know for a fact she hates doing readings and only does them because they are easy money for her!! She talks badly about everyone, including her family and friends! Gossips and shared her readings. Adds much of her own ideas and ego! Especially if you are a repeat and not listening to her advice! She does have a gift but it’s not something that she does out of love! She’s bored with it and it shows!!!

        • Sadly, this review is from Marisa’s alcoholic sister who Marisa has no contact with due to her drinking and jealousy issues. Lisa please get help.

  • I wanted to leave this very important message regarding Marisa for anyone considering a reading with her: make sure to use a pseudonym when filling out her online contact form AND use a friend’s phone number for the contact number and reading! I was intrigued to find about half of the folks here think she’s a fraud and the other half think she’s awesome.

    Here’s my story: I had a 15 min reading with her and from the get go, she was spot on with identifying my parents who had passed, siblings’ names, specific info about my parents, etc. I was so amazed that I thought I had just had a reading with the world’s best psychic! In my life, I have probably had about 20 readings with different psychics, several of them quite good, and I’d never, ever seen this kind of accuracy in terms of names. Boom, boom, boom, she just rattled off those names: dad, mom, sister, brother, my legal name (I have a nickname that I use) even my great niece. I was thrilled, feeling like my parents were right there connecting with me. It was very special.

    Another interesting point: not once, but twice, she said I was intuitive and could do the type of work she does which I felt was her way of hooking me into taking one of her classes. Did anyone else have that experience with her?

    Then the unexpected happened: about an hour later, after I’d called at least one family member and a friend to rave about this amazing experience, while sitting quietly, an unexpected but powerful thought came into my mind: “OMG, what if she researched me online before the session??” It just never occurred to me! Slowly, but surely, it dawned on me that everything she shared was probably available online. I didn’t think it was FB because I have my account available only to FB friends. So I did a search under my name and there it was, at the bottom of the first search page, BOTH of my parents obits and it was all there (my brother wrote up incredibly detailed obits). Siblings names, specific info about both parents that she shared (in fact the only info she shared about each of them was in those obituaries), even my little great niece who at the end of the session she said “Your mother says ‘Give X a kiss for me.’” (that one blew me away because she used my great niece’s very unusual name). My heart sank. I mean really sank. She seemed like such a wonderful woman from her YT vids, how could she do this? The feeling was overwhelming that she had researched me before our call…oh and I want to point out that like the woman in one of the comments above, she also told me I had a Native American guide…emphasis on feathers. I wasn’t mad, just sad that this great connection I thought she had with my parents was a sham.

    Here’s what I think: I think Marisa is really a psychic medium. I’m sure she has done cold readings that are really amazing. I don’t think you can work with a police department or have a strong reputation as she does, without having some ability there. But I also sense that she does this online research when she is able to just enhance the appearance of accuracy in her readings (it sure blew me away!). There was only one thing she shared in the session that might have been authentic (ie. the only thing that wasn’t online)…it was fairly vague but I thought it might be legitimate. Of course, I can’t PROVE that she researched me online before our reading but she had my name and at least several days to look me up. I really WANTED to believe she hadn’t but in my gut, I really believe she did, primarily because every little detail she shared about my parents was in those obituaries. Too obvious.

    BOTTOM LINE? Try her for yourself (stick to the 15 min session for $75 so you don’t lose too much) but make sure you use a pseudonym and someone’s else’s phone in the online submission form for your session just to see if she really is legitimate in your reading. Maybe you’ll be like one of the lucky ones above, who said she knew things that were not online and who had great readings.

    • Hi Ella – thanks so much for leaving such a well written and honest asessment of your experience with Marisssa Ryan. It’s hard to know what is true of course – but I’m a firm believer that people ought to trust their own intuition – and rely on those little internal a-ha moments and epiphanies that often spell out a truth that we would rather not arrive at on our own. I’ve always found the “psychics research” people in advance criticism unfair and unlikely – but if things happened the way you describe above – and the “hits” were as closely tethered to what could be found online (on FB – or in other detailed obits) – it’s quite disappointing to hear – and I’d also say – quite alarming as well. I give you a lot of credit for a very charitable recounting of your experience – even with that realization – and I truly hope you have another experience that obliterates those doubts – with another medium – or another experience – that uplifts you as well. Thanks again for sharing – Ian

    • Your post was very interesting. I understand being weary of the fact that she may have researched you, but I have to say that I met Marisa for the first time at a psychic retreat and she didn’t know me or my name. Marisa’s reading for me was so accurate that is blew me away!!!! This was several years ago and to this day I will never forget it! She knew things that no one else could ever know. I don’t feel like someone with this much talent would spend all that time researching everyone so she could give a fake reading. I just had to reapond to this post because I think Marisa is a true psychic and I have experienced it first hand.

    • Hello,

      I just had a reading with Marissa Ryan on the 2nd of November 2018, I almost canceled because of this review and a few others on this page i’m really glad I didn’t. I did use a different name and state when signing up due to having a legal name versus what name I am known for to others in person and on social media. With that being said I can safely say that Marissa was spot on when bringing through my loved one. She gave great validation, gave very specific information that only I and my loved one shared. Marisa did not prompt or urge me to feed her any information( I would only say yes once in awhile if she was giving validation or was silent). I was so impressed with her delivery and ability to make me feel at ease. Overall she gave a legitimate reading and had no way of looking up my information on me beforehand. The only thing I didn’t like as much as when the phone call time was up she abruptly just said I have to go and hung up. That turned me off a little bit, I guess I would prefer a little bit of a wrap up to such an emotional experience but that maybe is just me…

      • Thanks so much for sharing your reading experience with Marissa Ryan – it’s very helpful to hear – and happy you’ve had such a good experience with her as well (as it provides a nice and needed contrast to the experiences that others have shared – which clearly are a bit polarizing and more unusually so – than most of the “mediums” that others opine about, across our community)

        For what it’s worth – one of my pet peeves in life are people who hang up the phone without a proper “goodbye” 🙂 Some of the people I love most in this world – haven’t mastered the art of ending a phone call the right way – it makes me laugh – but drives me nuts when it happens, too! Thanks again – much appreciate your review – and thankful that the other reviews here didn’t dissuade you from having a good experience with Marissa Ryan as well.

    • Exactly.

      This woman was so good I was thinking she had to have googled me with my info prior to the appointment.

      Interesting however is she also knew people Involved who would y be so easy to find and, her statements at times regardjng the relationship dynamics which are not researchable were dead on.

      How she knew one of my sons was somewhere In Kansas or Oklahoma driving my red truck is not possible. Truck is not even I. My name but the companys name along with 20 others and not all alike.

      I have also given her a referral without name and phone number which was in a relatives name and she told me Marissa was right on. My sons too would find the same.

      Just Almost too good. Even found out about …my wife’s leaning toward lesbianism after 33 years.

      She is gifted and doesn’t cold the fraud Teresa Cavuto or the Hollywood Pyschic kid do and yell out, im feeling the name which starts with a B and is heart attack related and was a husband or father to someone here .

      No she is t like those scammers. But damn just knew alot. In th end, I keep returning to her.

  • I paid for a 15-minute reading with Marissa and the word disappointing does not even begin to describe my experience. She told me the usual you have so many people who love you on the other side. Nothing specific all very vague and open-ended statements she was Desperately Seeking for something that hit for me. She tried to give me validating information as in hair color of people or size or stature. Every single validation was off. Just super disappointing and I feel like a fool for sort of taking it so seriously and I should be honoring my mantra. Blessed are those who have no expectations for they shall not be disappointed. I’m attending a small dinner party with a few friends tonight and a man who claims to have the gift of mediumship. He won’t take any money and just wants to share his gifts with a small group. That’s tonight I can’t wait to meet him if nothing else at least it will be nice meal and some social interaction. At best I’ll get to experience someone who is really gifted and want to share their special talents with others. Save your money don’t book with Marissa.

    • Thanks for sharing your experience – and i’m sorry it was disappointing – as you can see, we’ve had a mixed bag of responses to Marissa Ryan, so you are certainly not alone. I do like your mantra – even though, for most of us – keeping our expectations at bay is pretty challenging. I will say this as well – we went (as a small group, through our business) to see a local medium in NJ last week do something similar to what you describe (your dinner party) above – there were about 25 people there – and this woman (the medium) literally tried and applied every “cold reading” trick in the book to try to glean information – all the while telling everyone – “I’m never wrong – so if it doesnt’ resonate as true – it’s you – not me” Having worked in the spiritual publishing field for quite some time …disappointing was also too mild of a word. Was so happy to see an elderly woman – on the way out of this nice dinner – turn to her husband and say = “that was total b*llSh*t!” (very funny – and made my night)

    • My grandmother was a true psychic medium and never took a penny from anyone. She helped many people. It is hard to find any that do not charge.

      • I guess it’s hard to find a therapist, etc. who do not charge. Who do you think you are anyway?
        You are pathetic thinking that because a person is in this profession that they should not be compensated for their work! PLEASE!!!!
        Would you expect not to pay your dentist or even your grocer?

  • Mediumship is real! BUT After watching her youtube video it is clear that she is a fraud. There was not one shred of evidential verifiable information in her entire “performance!” It was heartbreaking to me to listen to people who were genuinely grieving about their loved ones and wanting to believe her so badly. One thing is for certain, one day she will have to answer for her trickery and greed when she gets to the spirit world herself. If she were the real deal, she would not take your money for a bad reading. Huge lack of integrity there.

    • Wow! You are so wrong! I met Marisa at a psychic retreat, she didn’t know me and gave me the most amazing reading of my life! She knew things that no one could ever know. She spoke to my father who has passed on. You don’t know what you are talking about! Marisa is by no means a fraud or a fake!!! What you said in your post was rude.

      • Jessie,

        When you signed up for that psychic retreat, what information did you provide prior to attending? Did you sign up online, buy a ticket online, use a credit card to buy the ticket, put your info on a sign-in sheet when you arrived, etc? I haven’t been on a retreat for years so I don’t know how it all works these days. However, I might guess there is a list of names, addresses, and phone numbers of anyone who would be present at this retreat. The ONLY way I could believe they had no personal info on you is if you just showed up day of, paid cash for the ticket (unless, of course, it was a free event), or someone else bought you a ticket under his/her name. Even audience members for tv show recordings have to provide their info. I cannot imagine any organized retreat would just allow unnamed walk-ins. But like I said, I have no idea so just want clarification. Thank you!

  • I had a reading with Marissa 5 months ago and it was the most amazing experience ever. I first contacted her because I wanted to know who is/are the spirit(s) in the house whom are turning on the tv, microwave, fans, knocking over flower stands, and ripping the poster off the wall. I use to be very skeptical about spirits and mediums until this all started to happen to me. But what I got out of the experience was so much more than I would have expected. She knew so many details that you can NOT find online about me.

    The morning before the reading I was emailing graduate professors back and fourth and it was making me feel lost and confused since I did not know which one of the 2 schools I was applying to was going to accept me. The thing I was worried about the most was my statement letter to the school I had no clue what I was going to write them about. That afternoon I had my reading with Marissa and how did she know I was applying to Texas Tech?? She also told me my letter to the school was going to be amazing and how would she know this?? She said I was going to get into Tech and WHAT DO YOU KNOW I am leaving for Texas in August!

    She did identify who the spirits were and why they were doing the activity in the house. One of the spirits that came through very strong was my grandfather, there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY she would know that he called all of this spiritual stuff “hocus pocus” and that to tell my mom (who was with me at the reading) not to worry about me going to Texas. My mom has been so against me moving to Texas and this reading also gave her peace of mind that I will be alright.

    Marissa is truly a blessing in this world. For those of you that had bad readings I am sorry but maybe it is not her it may be the connection between you and your family/friends. There is no price that you can put on the feeling of complete peace. I recently have had a spike in more paranormal activity in the house so I am also making another appointment with her soon.

    Matthew 7:1-3
    Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

  • I never believed the possibility of channeling dead relatives until my cousin told me about her. So I set up a phone appointment with her and the things that she told me no way you can research it online. She not about taking your money! She tells me where to go to get accurate reading and avoid frauds, by recommending mythohysical shops. So far I know four people who have been to her and they are all amazed by the things she says. She is amazing and a gift to our society!

  • Wow, you all need to understand that being “psychic” is not a circus act that is always the same. I, myself am pretty psychic and have some mediumship abilities. I know they happen when they happen. I had a reading with Marisa a couple of years ago and found her to be quite competent and friendly. I would recommend her and would welcome another reading.


    I had a reading several years back and was very satisfied. I am a skeptic and she nailed it. She knew private details about my life that nobody could know. She even described what I was wearing at the time of the reading over the phone. Several things she predicted already came true. I wasnt sure what to expect but I am now a true believer. Marisa is the REAL DEAL! Thank you, Marisa

    (ADMIN NOTE – THIS REVIEW is Fictitious. It was left by someone using the very same IP address (*) as the “Bud” comment above – using a new email address – which our fraud filter instantly picked up. We are leaving the review – AND the review left by “Bud” (who also left 2 other replies to negative reviews for Marisa Ryan we didn’t publish – as we don’t allow one person to “judge” the experience of another – and only one review per profile is allowed)

    When reading the reviews on this profile – please take into consideration – and ask yourself why (and who) there are numerous fictitious/fake and repetitive postive reviews being posted from a single computer, using multiple email addresses – to “game” or “trick” our community.

    (the only thing worse than fake “positive” reviews being left by the same person using various screen-names that waste our time and resources……is when it’s done so amateurishly and poorly, that it’s embarrassingly obvious to all:-)


    I had a reading with Marisa a month ago and thought she was amazing. I didnt tell her my real name so she could not have looked me up. She contacted my deceased brother and knew his first name, that he was married and had 3 children. None of this could have been found through a search. She was very pleasant and seemed very honest. She described my brother as if he was standing in front of her, even the large mole on his cheek. She knew about a strange game we used to play when we were kids and she knew how he died. The reading brought me great peace of mind and validation that it was my brother. She even knew I drove a old truck with a camper shell on it. How would she know that. Amazing. Sometimes you have to just own up to the fact that we dont really die and people like Marisa just want to prove that to us so we can find peace knowing we will all be together in the end. Those of you that dont want to believe, I am sorry for you. Bud.

  • Jan 2015 Reading:

    I can only share my validating belief that Marisa Ryan is gifted with something most of us are not capable of.
    It all started with in the first few minutes of the session-Chocolate.
    Out of all the things she could have started off saying-Chocolate.
    Now let me explain, as Marisa Ryan respectfully starts her session and takes a few deep breaths, I decided I was thirsty and needed to quench my thirst. Before I even opened the fridge door, she mentions Chocolate. I was standing right in front of a huge bar of Dark Chocolate and some Ferrero Rocher. What are the odds right? To top it off, I’m not a huge chocolate fan but for some odd reason the night before I wanted some chocolate… at 1am even. Out of the ordinary for sure. Odds of this happening, not very likely.

    I would just hate to be in the bathroom and have her say something about toilet paper, I have a feeling that she would just know.

    Don’t just go by the reviews, decide for your self of course.
    I would listen to her radio show – Spirit Talk Online Radio Show with Marisa Ryan
    She’s a pleasant speaker that gets right to the point, she has a fun way of explaining things.
    Actually speaking with her makes time fly so fast.

    I hope she stays healthy and lives long because I think she’s done some good in this world and who can’t appreciate a person that try’s to dedicate them selves trying to help others.

    • If “chocolate” impressed you then I would say you are easily impressed. It wouldn’t impress me if that is all I got out of a “psychic” reading.

      • You could always schedule an appointment with her and form your own experience if you like.
        Sorry I if my comment was not what you were looking for, I’ll make sure I’ll do better next time.
        Let me work on realizing what I got out of my reading with Marisa Ryan.

  • I watched her entire YOUTUBE show and I discerned rather quickly that she is a CHARLATAN. She is a bad cold reader and apparently a pretty bad hot reader as well, her schtick is sickening and it makes my blood boil to hear the audience oohing and ahhhhing and laughing at her ridiculous jokes . Watch her close, she brings not one message that is unique, verifiable or useful. She is probably one of the worst I have ever watched ( probably because it was an unedited clip) ALIENS??? Please, show me some sort of proof, anything at all for your unearned fame and ridiculous ego.

  • After thinking about it some more, I want to amend my earlier review of my reading with Marisa Ryan. I want to say that I believe she is a complete fraud. In our one hour phone session she was making up visiting dead friends/relatives,scrambling around and trying to say something I would leap on (“Somebody in the military”). There was NO validating information whatsoever. The few things she threw out to me made no sense.. I recognized nothing at all about any of the five “spirits” who so “wanted to talk” with me.

    She started out by saying “There are SO many people who love you!” Funny, one of the questions I had lined up to ask Marisa was “why don’t people like me very much?” When I told her this she replied “people are intimidated by your independence”. Later she said,”People are put off by your forthrightness.” Wait, what? I thought they loved me! So MANY!

    I asked her why my mother hated me as a child, and she replied that she was jealous of me. When I expressed surprise, she said it is quite common for a mother to be jealous of a daughter (this I knew; it’s usually when a daughter is pretty and growing into womanhood). I said, my mother had (has) five daughters, but she hated me pretty much from the get-go. I asked, “Are you saying she was jealous of me when I was two? when I was four? or six or eight?” She was jealous of only one of five daughters? Then she said, “Your mother never bonded with you..”

    Marissa told me one of my 3 spirit guides was an old, Native American male. She said he wants me to pay attention to feathers (not sure why). I told her I have pet birds in the house, so feathers are always around. Then she told me I should pay attention to them outdoors (still don’t know why), and I told her I have a flock of geese living on my property (my pets). We moved on from that subject after she told me my spirit guide said I own “small grey birds”. (I own two cockatiels, one yellow and one mostly grey, and two very brightly colored, mostly green conures”. I call that a *miss*———and who cares about this stuff anyway?

    What a waste of $225.00.

    I asked about my childhood injury to my finger (now permanently disfigured) which I had no recollection of and wanted to know about, and she said it was slammed in a door….or caught in a piece of machinery…..or something…..she’s not sure what—but she ‘heard” two screams! Mine and “the adult” who was with me. Not my mother. Or my father. or a grandparent or a babysitter—an “adult”. She also said I was “under four years old”, which I already figured, and I had told her that was too young to remember. I wanted to know my age– six months? one? two? three? “Under four” was all she came up with.

    She’s a fraud, and I promise you, I don’t say that lightly. Or she was having a hella off day. But were it I in her shoes, had I been the real deal, I’d have said, you know, this is a real off day for me, clearly, so why don’t we reschedule this again for another day and let’s see if I can do a better job for you.

    There wasn’t a single insight or genuine validating piece of information that came through in an hour’s time, and more than one contradictory statement.

    And when the hour was up, and after all of those misses, I asked if she would answer ONE more question, to which she replied, “I have to go”, and, boom, she was gone. Two hundred and twenty five dollars richer.

    And I feel like a joke with my hopeful anticipation and my carefully thought-out list of questions.

    P.S. One thing Marisa said which made me very annoyed (and suspicious), was that one of the “spirits” who was trying to connect with me was showing her “guns” “and the word Sandy Brook or something like Sandy Hook which is where he lived, or you live………..” Well, I do live in Newtown, CT. where the Sandy Hook School children were murdered (something easily discovered by looking my unusual name up on the internet, along with my area code)—-but WHY would a so-called spirit come forth from the spirit world to tell me where I lived anyway? He’ll tell me where I live but not tell his own name? After receiving no positive feedback or recognition from me regarding the five spirit people who were so “eager” to talk to me, she pulled that out of her hat. WOW. An unknown male spirit (who, btw, loved me very much in a romantic sense) came forth from beyond to tell me I live in Sandy Hook–or he did.. It felt very much like she was grasping at straws.

    There is no such person from my past who has crossed over.

    Well, people, you be the judge. There is only one “psychic” have ever dealt with who I feel truly has psychic ability, and I’d hoped, through Marisa, to have some of the unknown things she’d told me validated. There were many known things that psychic did validate, which makes one pay much moe attention to things that can’t be validated. Only if two different, unconnected psychics give you matching information can you feel, well then, you’ve got something there!

  • My one hour session with Marisa did not go well. “Spirits” came through whom neither she nor I could identify, with no real messages coming forth. An answer to a query about a childhood injury was so vague, and it differed from the answers I received from two other so-called psychics in the past. I was hoping for a consensus, but it looks like it’s not to be. In the hour’s time there wasn’t one significant thing she told me—not one—that impressed me as having the ring of truth. I don’t believe Marisa is especially gifted.

  • What was the murder case and what town did it occur,what was the police dept you worked with there,…..mediums always like to claim they have solved murders but always leave the details out,

    • I read a newspaper article about her. She said it was in Riverside County California and she claimed she never solved it she worked on the case with the police.


  • I’ve had one session with Marisa. After hearing her interviewed on the radio, I contacted her and made an appointment for a half hour spirit communication session. Her insights were outstanding, and the whole experience was very validating and uplifting. I will more than likely book a reading with her again. She is top quality.

  • I’ve had several readings with Marisa, after a friend told me about her, he interviewed her for an article. I was impressed with what she said in the interview, paid for a reading and was BLOWN AWAY. She knew nothing about me, asked how I got her name. Then with no questions from me, told me very personal info. and advice for 20 minutes (it would not have fit anyone else I know), then asked if I had questions. She is superb. Utterly superb.

  • I foolishly paid for a reading. EVERYTHING she told me was information available from Google, Pipl, Ancestry, etc. She had a two week lead time to research me, and I did the same. She found ALL the same things I found about myself. When questioned about anything beyond this info, she claimed “my spirit guides wanted me to consult them myself”. I sent an email after requesting a refund and she did not reply. I have documented everything she “read” and where she obtained the info online. Shameful fraud. My bad!! Don’t make the same mistake. Just pray to God and save your money.

    • I totally agree. I felt so violated after the reading. She was struggling and then all of a sudden starting reeling off names right in a row. It was SO obvious she was looking at face book after finding out a little more information on me during the reading.

      I was so disappointed and want people to know what a bad reading it was.

      I love having readings and have never felt like this before.

      I don’t recommend her.

        • Yes – I believe Marisa Ryan still is based in California 🙂 We’ve heard some really good things about Marisa, in addition to the less flattering reviews above – so please let us know how your appointment goes 🙂

    • OMG!! Seriously? I met Marisa at a psychic retreat and she didn’t know me nor did she look any info up on me before my reading. She was so accurate it was scary!!!! She is an amazing and gifted psychic! People like you are suspicious and rude!!

      • Well I do believe all of us have psychic abilities to some degree. The “professional” psychics have supposedly mastered this ability to a higher degree, but can it really be used “On Demand”? After my 15 minute reading with Marisa Ryan, I have come to the conclusive answer as No! She said she only felt one spirit coming through and it was a male, native- american warrior with a message that I should use social media, namely Facebook to help my business grow. Really? That’s it? Being a business owner, I already know this, this is not new or unknown information. Nothing spiritual whatsoever. After my call I felt like Ralphy in the movie Christmas Story where he is so excited to uncover the secret message when he got his decoder ring, only to find the message is “Drink Your Ovaltine”! I would have rather given my $75.00 to a homeless person. I would have felt much better.

        • That is pretty insane, Jay! I’d actually ask for a refund if that is the sort of superficial silliness she shared for $75 – and I dare say – the sort of “psychic reading” that makes it so easy for skeptics and cynics to completely disregard the entire field. A shame – but I’m glad you shared it with our community – so others can benefit from your (bad) experience with Marissa Ryan.
