Our Top Picks (New Category)

Everyday we get at least one email, or Facebook message or comment somewhere on our social stream that says, " if you could choose to see ONE psychic or medium in THIS state, or that city, or THIS part of the world.....who would it be, and why?" Invariably, people are always asking of course, about their part of the world, or their local town, or even, after being burned by ONE disappointing reading too many, they want to know who WE would choose, in their shoes.  (I'm a natural rhymer, I think I missed my calling ;-) With that in mind, we've created a brand new category to represent the TOP psychics or mediums that WE'D pick, in any given city, state or area, based around a bunch of different factors.  (reputation from our side of the street, the relationship and history we have with them - business wise or otherwise, feedback from our own audience We get A TON of "reviews" that aren't written down, and never make it on to the members listings, but DO color how we thi…

Good Psychics in Chicago?

Who are the best psychics in Chicago? Is there one particular medium local folks recommend? We got a few emails and Facebook messages this week for some recommendations, and we thought we ask our readers who YOU think are the top spiritual teachers in the greater Chicago area. Per some of what our "Yelp" audience said, psychic medium Delphina is very popular. She does have a lot of 5 star ratings, but I noticed some less than stellar reviews as well. (and what feels like super long wait times, too!) Here is a list of some of our Chicago psychics and mediums, as recommended and hand picked by our audience. Who do YOU recommend? Is there a local Chicago medium we really need to know about? A psychic who we ought to interview in your great city? Share with us on Facebook.....or in the community comments below.

Suzanne Giesemann: BATGAP Interview

Here is a really interesting interview with Suzanne Giesemann, a popular medium, author and spiritual teacher. We've had a lot of questions about Suzanne over the last few years, so it was nice to see her interviewed again. A quick confession: There are a few different people who write our articles for this site. Some organize the listings. A few others manage community and the content. We have, across all of our spiritual stores, directories and communities, on the site management side of the street, mostly true believers, practicing mediums, spiritual life coaches....and then there is me :-) I'm skeptical. But open. Many people find it ironic that one can be skeptical about most psychic mediums, and yet, help run a directory of psychics and mediums. I don't. Actually, being a daily meditator for many years, I've had far too many amazing, interesting, and extraordinary experiences to count. I also know how easy it is to want to fool oursel…

Psychics Near Me: 5 Rules For Finding Local Psychics (With Real Reviews & Ratings)

Looking for a local psychic? Trying to decide whether a psychic near you is worth seeing at all? Can you trust psychic reviews? And if not, WHY not? In this short article we're going to take a quick and easy look at how to maximize your chances of getting an accurate, insightful, inspiring, entertaining and intuitive psychic or medium reading without getting scammed or sucked in by psychic scams. Rule #1:  Have a budget and stick to it.  Any psychic or medium or spiritual "advisor" who has ambiguous pricing is one we'd recommend you avoid.  (unless they are highly recommended by a friend or family member)  Why?  Because the worst psychic scams, are those that happen in the moment, when you are feeling vulnerable to being "upsold" spiritual services you don't want, didn't ask for, and certainly don't need.  I've had this happen to me on several occasions when testing mediums, and being able to write about it afterwards, and the "mediums" who thought it was okay to do, has be…

Psychics in San Diego: Who are the Best Psychics and Mediums in San Diego?

Who is the best psychic or medium in San Diego? Is there such a thing? And if so.....who rated them #1? As always, we get questions on our FB page about our #1 recommended reader in a given area, just about every day. Today's request came from Don in San Diego. We gave him the same advice we give folks who are searching for psychics, mediums and tarot readers in EVERY city, county, and state in the Country. First, understand this to be true because it is: Psychic "ratings" are subjective. And they can vary. (wildly, actually......from session to session) We spoke to two people at a conference a few years ago, who both went to see the well known Long Island Medium (NOT, that one ;-) George Anderson a bunch of years ago. Both went to see George on the same day. Both are lifelong friends. And both came out with completely different intuitions about his gifts, quite literally.....60 minutes apart. (one thought it was the most spectacular display on spiritual mediumship sh…

Light Body Meditation

Q:  What is "light body meditation?"  How does it differ from other kinds of meditative techniques? A:  There are lots of different types of meditation one can do, but "light" body, or energy body meditation is (to my definition) just a simple way of experiencing the loss of conceptual imagery, in this case, of our physical bodies. So noticing raw sensations in the hands, lets say......or the feet, or the head, is a simple and effective opening to "forgetting" you have hands, or feet, or a head.  And as goofy as that sounds in print (or pixel :) experientially, when you do practice this, you start to feel like you ARE the space where all sensations (hot/cold/itchy/heavy) are arising. If you take this practice a bit deeper, what happens is, the whole sense of "having a body" disappears, and you simply  feel like the wide open space where the world appears.  This is a beautiful, blissful and boundless experience, and it can be hard to capture in words. This visualizatio…

Intuition, Empathy and Creativity: Are You a Spiritual Artist?

One of the really interesting things we've noticed working with hundreds of spiritually oriented professionals over the years (everyone from life coaches, to best selling authors, to psychic mediums, to relationship coaches, to past life regression therapists) is the strong urge to WRITE a book.   In my mind, there is a lot of correlation between creativity and intuition, and EMPATHY (heart centered feeling tones that are very common in those of us who do "light worker" style service. Writing books is a natural extension of that gift. Here is a cute info-graphic for those of you who like books, and writing, more often than people :)

Past Life Regression: How Does Regression Therapy Work?

Does past life regression therapy work?  Can past lives be remembered through working with a therapist, hypnotist or someone who brings you back to previous lifetimes?  And how can I tell that my past life memories are real? Any of these questions sound familiar?  If you are anything like many of the people enjoying our articles on past lives, karma, soulmate relationships and finding your life purpose, the allure and appeal of past lives as a "meta" explanation for everything happening in your life, for good and for ill.....is VERY tempting. After all, if it's all karma, and you don't have to take real responsibility for your actions right NOW (because it's always about resolving some sort of other issue, in another time.....past or future) it becomes very easy to get stuck in a rut. Recycling issues, and staying in bad relationships, becomes easier to justify as well. So does past life therapy or hypnosis really work? It depends on who you ask, and what you want …

What is My Life Purpose?

I've always been fascinated by the idea that our lives are innately imbued with purpose. When I was in high school and college, I used to read books on near death experiences, past life memories, and all sorts of "paranormal" experiences that seemed to suggest we come into this life with a karma, and a connection to not only those around us, but to a previous personality, or incarnation or set of experiences. (I think I can safely say, I was the only guy living in a Fraternity house who spent his Saturday nights reading books on near death experiences, 20 years ago :-) I remember having conversations with flabbergasted friends and family about my firm conviction that this life is akin to a dream - a school - an opportunity to grow and flow in the direction of our destiny. The homeless guy - the heiress - the billionaire - the baker - it mattered not to me. We were all part of this continuous carnival of life, learning and evolving. The goal, I was never 100% sure of..…

Are You a Natural Psychic?

Last week we asked a bunch of our readers how psychic they thought they were?  (our newsletter audience) Are you a natural psychic? Share your psychic and spiritual stories on our private community here! Some of the answers were really funny, some of the stories people shared were quite amazing and inspiring, with lots of folks having psychic dreams, spirit visitation experiences, and all sorts of spiritual syncronicities (why can't I ever spell that word!) that were hard to believe....and yet, according to many, 100% true! Do you think you've got natural psychic abilities, but have nowhere to talk about them? Share in our brand new private community of both professional mediums, intuitives, healers and light workers, as well as ordinary people looking to develop their own natural gifts as well!

Who is Your Favorite Celebrity Psychic Medium?

We get a lot of readers who are looking for celebrity psychic mediums, and often....are desperate for readings from people they see on TV. The funny thing is, while there ARE in fact some amazing, inspiring and quite extraordinary mediums on TV (Tyler Henry, in 2017 as we write this....remains the one medium I find the most interesting) there are also tons of super talented psychics and mediums and light workers in every city, town, state and county in the country. (in other words....you don't need to spend a fortune, and wait weeks to get a reading, if you truly feel the need to connect right now) Who are YOUR favorite mediums in 2017? John Edward, who I've seen several times, has fallen off the map a bit, but is still the #1 medium other MEDIUMS want to see, which I think is a testament to how highly he's regarded in the industry. Theresa Caputo is a bit more of a mixed bag from our perspective.....but she remains very popular with the public for sure.

NDE’s and Psychic Abilities

Do near death experience cause psychic abilities? Can you be "normal" before an NDE, and come back with a psychic gift or the ability to see and speak to spirit? There is actually a lot of data on the relationship between psychic gifts, and spiritually transformative experiences like an NDE. Here is a brief conversation we had on our FB page earlier today. I'm curious, what do YOU believe about the intersection between psychic experiences, and spiritual ones? Is it a loss of fear, or an awakening experience that leads to cultivation of intuition and deep connection to spirit.....or is it merely a brain based, biological change that makes us FEEL like we are? Share your thoughts on FB or in the community comments below. Susan: As the article states, this is not a gift, however I do feel it is an ability. This is information that comes through the senses and is then interpreted by understanding your own language of self. The article then talks about NDE as being…

What is My Life Purpose?

What is your purpose? Do you feel one? Have you FOUND one? What is it that keeps you from discovering your dharma and doing the work the world REALLY wants from you? One of the most amazing experiences we have had as a community (the famous psychic medium directory, in conjunction with our extended social media and newsletter audience) has been interviewing many ordinary people who have had EXTRA ordinary life changing spiritual experiences. One of the most interesting elements of these experiences, is the idea, especially during NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES (NDE's) that people returned with a powerful and profound sense of CERTAINTY that there was something in this life they returned to do. Many NDE survivors don't recall exactly WHAT that purpose is or was, but most have this incredible sense that they were told to come back, as they have work that remains undone. Many spiritual people find that to be inspiring and powerfully profound - as there is nothing better than …

How Do I Find a Psychic? (She asked….and our answer, I think, surprised her!)

How do I find a psychic?" she asked.  "Someone good, like TV quality good, but affordable too.  And preferably in Miami." This question arrived via our Facebook page earlier today, from a very nice woman who (presumably) lives in Miami, loves the Hollywood Medium on TV (Tyler Henry) and decided, once and for all, it's time she turned her curiosity into conviction, through personal experience with a real life psychic medium. It's funny, because we get a lot of questions from people who want to know "How to find a psychic" or "How to tell if a medium is real" or even MORE commonly, "WHO is the BEST psychic, medium, or spiritual teacher" in X, Y or Z city, town or state. The truth is, many of these questions are far easier to ask, than they are to answer. For example?  I've had readings with some world class psychics and mediums who are entirely unknown, don't advertise, and often don't even bill themselves as such in the real world.  (my first, and probably BEST medium …

Signs You are a Psychic Medium? (She Thought These Were Real, Until…..)

Am I a medium? What are the signs that "spirit" wants to communicate with ME? Do I have a natural psychic gift, and if not.....am I just going crazy? We get a lot of questions from people who are exploring their psychic gifts, and many from folks who want to tap into their mediumistic abilities as well. Not surprisingly, many people in our audience really want to cultivate a powerful connection to the other side, and are actively engaged in developing these skills. All of that is GREAT of course, but the truth is, we also get lots of people who *think* they are having incredible spiritual syncronicities in their lives, simply due to really generic, really broad, and really silly signs they'll read around the web. (sometimes the "signs" that they are told to look for are things that are laugh out loud funny, and other times, they could be potentially dangerous health issues, and NOT spiritual signs at all, which makes us nervous and disappointed that so much bad inform…

Real Psychic Abilities?

Does it drive you crazy when people say "there is no evidence for psychic abilities?" It drives me a little nuts, too. (although I think I'm a bit unstable to begin with :-) Here is a great collection of peer reviewed, scientific publications on the existence of psychic "powers" across a whole spectrum of studies, and extraordinary experiences. The next time someone laughs at you for believing in "spiritual" stuff....send them here :) http://deanradin.com/evidence/evidence.htm The truth is, the people who say "there is no proof for this, or THIS sort of spiritual thing has been "disproven" etc, are almost always smart, but they are also woefully uninformed about what many serious scientists have done with regard to studying extraordinary experiences. Plus of course, there are tens of millions of ordinary people who are quite sane, (or at least as sane as the rest of us :) who HAVE had really unusual things happen that seem to suggest there is much more to li…

How Did You Die in a Past Life? (QUIZ)

Do you remember dying in a past life? If so.....HOW so? How did you die, and what do you remember? Some of the most amazing and inspiring past life memories come from small children who have detailed recollections of not only their lives, but how they passed as well. Dr. Ian Stevenson, one of the first Western Psychiatrists and scientists to study reincarnation, and past life memories in small children, found many cases of children who had verifiable memories of previous personalities and people that seemed IMPOSSIBLE to explain away, but also.....much more interesting, many of these children had the PHYSICAL SCARS that cooresponded with how they remembered dying as well. (typically these were violent deaths, gunshots, stabbings, etc......and the children had birthmarks that matched the wounds they received in the previous lifetime.....at death) All very cool stuff...and Dr. Stevenson's work was SO well regarded, it was actually published in the New England Journal of …

Why People See Psychics: Melissa Mills on Life as a Psychic Medium

Why do people call psychics? Why do millions of people visit mediums each and every year? Is it to connect with the souls of those we've lost, that have crossed? Is it to get validation that there is more to life than meets the eye? Is it to discover if we're going the right things, with the right people, living in alignment with our greatest good.....or something quite different altogether? The truth is, people visit different types of psychics for different reasons. Mediums get less people who are OVERTLY looking for career advice, although it often comes up in the reading anyway! Psychics who specialize in love and relationships get less OVERT interest from folks who want to connect with a deceased relative, but that happens too. Check out a good interview with psychic medium Melissa Mills, where she shares what life is like an upcoming psychic medium, what her most popular client interests are, and how the industry has changed from the stereotype of what a mediu…

Theresa Caputo Gets Her Brain Scanned….(and this is what happens!)

Do psychic mediums have different brains than the rest of us? If so.....HOW so, and how would we even find out? Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com In this Fox news update, Theresa Caputo talks about her brain scans, and what various types of FMRI tests reveal about the unique workings of her mind, while channeling, or connecting with the other side. The truth is, while some people will scoff this off, or want to chalk it up to a publicity stunt, anyone who does meditation, (as TC certainly does) knows that when in deep meditative states, part of the brain that are typically very active, go quiet.....and all sorts of amazing experiences can occur. (the part of the brain that "blanks" in her words, is the part of the brain that is responsible for self chatter, or what scientists call "self referential processing", the sense of "ME" that we all have going, pretty much, 24/7) Once this quiets down, or goes away completely...as is the case with many really goo…

Do You Believe in An Afterlife?

Do you believe in life after death? What is the best evidence to YOU? Have you had a near death experience? (something that leads many of us to develop a deeper connection to the other side thereafter) What about religion? Do you need to be religious to have a firm belief in a soul? If not....why not? And what types of evidence for a soul or spirit world does science most take seriously? (if any at all) The truth is, there are millions of people who have amazing, inspiring, helpful, healing and HOPEFUL experiences that suggest that there is much more to life than meets the eye. Some studies show that 15% of those of us who have a cardiac arrest, will come back with a strong sense of having been transported to another dimension.......reunited with loved ones we've lost that have crossed, and been told we are to return with PASSION and purpose, because there is a reason we're here, and a job we need to do. Did you know that 50% of spouses who have lost their …

Creepy Psychic Messages? 9-11 Spirit Stories and More

Q: Are some psychic messages creepy? Do psychic readings scare people? If yes....what are those experiences like? A: In my view, if people aren't expecting real information to come through during a reading, the experience can be creepy when it does. Most notably? Medium readings, when a loved one comes through, and you don't expect it (or don't believe it's possible) those sorts of psychic experiences tend to leave the most lasting impression. We've had a few people tell us that "9/11 spirits" or the loved ones who died in the tragic 9-11 terrorists attacks, have appeared to them in a myriad of ways, offering proof of an afterlife that religion, family or faith couldn't provide. Check out the story from the Huffington Post below about a 9-11 "ghost" story and tell us if you think it would be proof for YOU. (i tend to think stories like this one, while they get attention in some media channels, aren't really examples of EVIDENTIAL mediumship, unless there was a lot more i…

She Got a Bad Psychic Reading….. (She Didn’t Expect THIS To Happen Next)

I got a bad psychic reading.  Or rather, I got a psychic reading where she told me bad things would happen.  Should I panic?  Can I change my future?  HELP!  What should I do next? One of the more common questions we get relates to bad psychic readings, or future predictions that aren't so happy, cheerful or inspiring.  Said differently, some people see a psychic or medium or spiritual coach, and rather than getting the "I see lots of warm and fuzzy things in your future" , they get some sort of ominous message that causes them some level of dread.  IMPORTANT note:  The vast majority of people don't have this sort of experience and the vast majority of readers that we know, are tactful, insightful and inspirational, using compassion and natural empathy to connect with clients, and visualize positive, purposeful and empowering options for those in their care. That said, some people do get "bad" psychic readings.  (both literally, and in the sense of the predictions themselve…

Addicted to Psychic Readings?

Q:  Can someone get addicted to psychic readings?  If so......how so, and what is the best way to break the spell? A:  We've written about psychic addiction a bit in the past, and while it's NOT something that is discussed all that often, it IS something that some people are more prone to experience, than others. Psychic addiction is really less about "psychic" readings, and more about people who want to change or control their circumstances in some way outside of ordinary life, and seem not to be happy, or not to be comfortable with the circumstances that they are currently navigating.....hence, the reliance on outside, or metaphysical guidance to try to transform what is happening in the present moment. I know this, because I've seen it far too many times to count, and i've experienced it myself as well! How?  In going through a bad breakup a long time ago, I found myself relying on my small network of very close intuitive and spiritual circle of friends to guide me…

Free Psychic Readings? She Spoke to 4 Mediums And This is What Happened Next

How reliable are free readings? Can a psychic reading by email be a real "thing"? And why do psychics or mediums offer free readings in the first place? Is it to be nice, or helpful.....or is there an ulterior motivation behind it? We get a lot of questions about either free, or hyper low cost psychic readings. The truth is, a free reading is often a really good marketing tool used by ANY professional (be they it a lawyer who offers a free consultation, or a medium who offers a free reading by email) That said, most busy psychics, mediums or spiritual professionals don't have a ton of time to accomodate the incredible volume of "takers" they will get when free readings are offered and available. In many cases, free readings are a recipe for disappointment and in our experience, rarely lead to a meaningful, magical and beneficial relationship with a spiritual guide that will serve you and your needs, for important decisions. With that in mind? The popular cable TV news sh…

She Almost Died in a Car Crash. (And this is what it felt like)

What does it feel like to ALMOST die? Not a near death experience, but a "I think I'm going to die" experience where you aren't even hurt? There are lots of stories about near death experiences, and everyone has an opinion on what they mean. Some believe they are just the blissful blips of a dying brain. Others believe they are a glimpse into the wonderful world that awaits. (most of the people who HAVE the experiences are convinced they've seen the other side) But what about FEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES? There is very little written about these sorts of "almost died" experiences that don't involve an actual NDE, but they are incredibly inspirational none the less. If you've never read a FDE, here is a really good example of what many people report in these strange spaces where something mysterious, magical and meaningful happens, that remains unexplained. Read the whole thing at the link following the short excerpt below. This incident was before seat belt laws. The m…

Best Psychics in California?

Q:  Who are the best psychics in California?  If you had to pick just ONE medium in Los Angeles to get a reading from, who would it be? A:  Ethan asked us this on Facebook earlier today, and it's not all that uncommon of a question.  (although of course, the city, state or locality tends to change often, predicated on WHERE the person who is asking, is located :-) Here is the thing when it comes to ranking "the best of..." when it comes to psychics, mediums, tarot card readers, spiritual life coaches in los angeles, California overall, or ANY city and state in the Country.  (or in the world, for that matter) It's subjective.  There IS no definitive list of the best psychics or spiritual life coaches, or mediums, or otherwise.  Your personality, and your needs, and your specific resonance, unique intuition and and conscious connection to the spiritual professional is AS important, as their ability to help you get what you want or need. This is much more applicable, in …

Am I Psychic? (or Just Nuts?)

Am I psychic, or crazy? Ever get the feeling that your intuitive antenna is beeping like crazy, and you aren't sure WHAT (or who) to trust? One of the best questions that any of us can ask ourselves is, WHAT do I trust? Do you go with your gut.....or do you listen to the advice, input and outside influence that the world offers us, in any and every given moment. Friends, family, foes......everyone has something to say, and far too many of us take direction from something (or somewhere) outside of ourselves. Listen to your heart. Trust your intuition. THAT is what has gotten you safely to this exact moment in time, and if you tune it in and tune it UP you'll find the answers, and insight and inspiration to go forward lies there as well. We get a lot of questions from people who want to know if they are becoming psychic, or just going crazy. :-) Check out some of our favorite articles, from around the web, on just that.....below! 3.
