How to Spot a Psychic Scam

Q: How can I tell if a psychic medium is a scam? I made an appointment to see a medium in Florida next Tuesday, but i'm starting to worry that they may be a scam artist. My friends tell me I'm crazy, and not to waste my money. What do you recommend? A. We get questions from folks who are skeptical about psychic mediums all of the time, and in our view....that's a good thing. We are a big fan of the old adage, "have an open mind, but not so open that your brains fall out" and this is a good rule of thumb for approaching a psychic reading or spiritual topic of any kind. Let's get one thing out of the way up front: First, there are people who will read the preceding words and say - but wait.....ALL psychics are scams! If you are that person, and that is your feeling, nothing in the rest of this article is going to appeal to you, so feel free to stop reading now ;) For those of you who are CURIOUS but maybe not entirely convinced, or who DO believe, but aren't sure how…

5 Self Publishing Tips for Spiritual Authors

Thinking of writing a book?  Are you a life coach, spiritual seeker, transformational teacher, psychic medium, blogging bodhisattva or luminous lightw worker with a magical message you'd love to get out to the masses?  You are in luck!  :-)  We've worked with hundreds of authors of all sizes to grow an audience, build a platform and self publish powerful, purposeful prose in the spiritual development and personal growth niches. There are tons of articles you can read on what to do, what NOT to do, when it comes to publishing your first (or next) book.  This isn't going to be one of those articles.  Instead, I'm going to simply lay out 7 simple rules that have worked wonderfully well for me, for hundreds of my clients, students and subscribers, and if you try and apply them, will work equally as well for you.  Teach, don't write.  Too many spiritual authors are perfectionists.  And because we all want to be the next Hemingway, or Maya Angelou, we spend far too much time …

Spiritual Marketing: Business Tips for Helpers, Healers and Luminous Light Workers

What is the best way to promote a spiritual based business?  Are there specific strategies that are BEST used for people who work to serve others?  What is the ideal way to promote my spiritual life coaching business, or my psychic readings, or my spiritual healing services? The truth is, there is a lot of unique stigma that surround the spiritual services industry, mostly regarding the right way to "promote" our businesses.  Many mediums, feel somewhat guilty, or struggle with the idea of charging for what you are worth. You feel like you have a gift.....and that a gift stops being a gift, the moment you monetize it, or market yourself, or do anything "commercial" in the service of sharing your specialness. Of course, that attitude severely limits the amount of contribution you can make in the world. The moment you suffocate your story, or supress your spirit  - in the service of staying in a small self imposed box of safety and security - your story begins to shrink an…

Recommended Mediums. (Your Choice)

Who are the mediums that our readership recommends?  Which local psychics, mediums and "healers" deserve to be discovered on a much larger stage?  You asked....and so we intend to answer! We've recently added our brand new "Readers Choice" section of psychics and mediums who are purely recommended by our readership - those who visit us here, our Facebook fans and followers our email subscribers and folks who just serendipitiously stop by to offer insight into experiences you've had with gifted professionals on this path. For years we've received emails and private messages from folks who have had amazing and inspiring experiences with mediums around the world - and more often than not, these were people we didn't "list" or feature or profile on our directory.  So while we celebrated these helpful, hopeful and healing experiences with our readership when shared, quite often.....they would disappear into the background noise and be forgotten, very shortly thereafter. Of co…

Who are YOUR Favorite Psychic Mediums? Share Your Top Recommendations in our New “Readers Choice” Section

Who are YOUR favorite mediums? What experience have YOU had that turned you from a skeptic.....into a believer? Or maybe you WANT to believe, but have had nothing but mediocre experiences with "recommended" mediums that leave you scratching your head? Every day we get at least ONE review, recommendation or uplifting experience shared by one of our readers, visitors or social media followers that NEVER makes it on to our site. These are people who simply want to share a REAL experience that THEY had with a psychic or medium, that profoundly helped them, healed them, or influenced them in a meaningful, or magical way. We believe that when it comes to finding a medium, YOUR voice is the most important voice of all…..and that trust and truth and transparency ought to come from the experiences of real people, in the service of spiritual growth – AND not from what (or who) some online business recommends, in the service of self interest. To that end - we've added a brand new…

Psychic Love Advice: What Can a Psychic Tell me About Love, Romance & Spiritual Soulmates?

Can a psychic help me find true love? Can a psychic reading help me find my soulmate? And if yes....what are the best questions to ask a psychic to find out who i'm going to marry? Any of these questions sound familiar? Many people turn to psychics for love, romance and relationship advice and tend to "trust" a psychic to tell them how (and who) we ought to proceed with our romantic adventures. The truth is, we tend to be a bit more skeptical of psychic readings that are very love oriented, as they tend to be LESS "evidential" and more entertainment oriented than you'd get from seeing a medium who can give you "proof" that what they are seeing is unique and relevant to you. (and doesn't apply to EVERYONE in some loose way, which most relationship readings tend to do - even when a psychic offers up initials, or seems to identify the type of person you'd like to marry, meet, or fall in love with as well.) That doesn't mean, of course, that relationship readings are a bad idea…

Psychic After Near Death Experience?

What are the after effects of a near death experience? Can you become psychic after an NDE? If so.....HOW so, and what does it mean? One of the most surprising elements of an NDE are the little reported, but often incredible, amazing and inspiring aftereffects that many experiencers report thereafter. These residual aftereffects are often spiritual, powerful, profound...and shine a bright light on some of the "spiritual superpowers" that so many of us want to cultivate in ordinary life. Psychic experiences, for example, or psychic ABILITIES in particular, are very commonly reported by folks who come back from the "dead", often with incredible stories of lives changed in amazing ways. Check out this short article from iands (international association of near death studies) on some of the many people who claim to have psychic abilities after their NDE. Have you had something similar happen to you? Share your thoughts in the community comments below! Around eighty p…

Best Psychics in San Fransisco?

Q: Who is the best psychic in San Fransisco? Are there any famous psychic mediums in San Fran that are worth seeing? A. We still get tons of questions from folks looking for psychics in the Bay area, and it's really hard to recommend just one. It's also important to remember that who YOU resonate with best, is often not the psychic or medium or spiritual teacher that other folks like and recommend as well. For example? In THIS list of "best psychics in SF", without naming names....several of these folks are "psychics" we wouldn't recommend at all and have had negative experiences with as well. (nothing terrible, just people who may be well intentioned overall, but aren't especially "psychic", spiritual or even necessarily WISE, either!" So who are YOUR favorite SF psychics? Have you seen a medium in the Bay area that you really recommend? Have you been to a spiritual seminar or weekend at a place like Esalen, or Omega, and had a wonderful experience with a heal…

SF Psychics

An interesting article on the intersection of entrepreneurialism and intuition! We get a lot of questions about the best psychics, mediums and intuitive's in San Francisco, and many of those asking are inquiring for entrepreneurial reasons. (something we don't get quite as much from other areas) Here is a great article on some of the best psychics and intuitives in San Fran and how their work intersects with those doing work in the financial fields as well! Nicki Bonfilio is one of those psychics. "I have many clients from Salesforce, Facebook, Apple, Twitter, Zynga, Microsoft, and Cisco," she says. We're sitting in her office in the Mission. The room is small and luminous, with white shag carpet, and white furniture, and a view of Twin Peaks glazed with white light. The decor is multicultural, as though set-dressed by a producer uncertain of her audience: a Buddha, framed pictures of the Orient, a glass Anubis. Nobody wears shoes in here. At 45, Bonfilio has the dem…

How to Talk to Your Spirit Guides (Guided Meditation)

Gordon Smith is one of the most talented, impressive evidential mediums you'll ever see. He's also one of the least known, especially in the US - where most folks don't recognize his name relative to his higher profile celebrity peers. But if you ask people who "know", they'll tell you that Gordon Smith is one of the very few mediums that even skeptics will have a hard time explaining away, simply because his readings are so specific, so incredibly direct and evidential, and so hard to deride as cold reading, guessing or other critiques. In this short audio, Gordon walks you through a guided meditation for connecting with your spirit guides.

4 Reasons We Love Cheap Psychic Readings

Are cheap psychic readings accurate? How much is a good price for an inexpensive psychic reading? Are cheap "medium readings" less likely to be real, or good, or even honest? If not....why not? We get a fair amount of questions about the cost of medium readings. Some people want to know how much is TOO much, and that is the pretty obvious question that most would expect. But the surprising thing is, we also get a lot of questions about cheap psychic readings, and whether or not an inexpensive, or low cost reading is a sign of a scam, or a lower quality reader overall. I say.....it depends! And the truth is, we often recommend inexpensive, or "cheap" psychic medium readings, especially to folks who have paid a lot in the past for higher rated, or reviewed mediums, but have had a bad experience, or a disappointing experience, and simply can't afford to repeat the same mistake again, but do want to have another reading.

What Would YOU Ask a Psychic?

Quick Poll!

Should I Trust a Psychic Reading?

How do I know if a psychic can be trusted? Are all real psychics honest? If not....why not, and what should I avoid? Another interesting article on some of the very many psychic con artists out there in the world, including unfortunately, some of the folks mentioned in the article below! (it appears, by dint of some of the feedback we've gotten, as well as some of what the article itself seems to suggest :) There are many psychic mediums in the world who want to help. This is 100% true. It doesn't mean they are all gifted, or genuinely communicating with anything more than their own inner voice, or intuition, or sense of spirituality, when they offer up advice about THIS world, or the next. But there are also many people who claim to be psychic mediums, who are simply grifters, and are taking advantage of your vulnerability, which ought to be a crime.

Atheist Near Death Experiences

Do atheists have near death experiences? What do they see? Do they have different experiences than religious people? If so.....HOW so? Here is an amazing and inspiring NDE reported by an Asian woman, who says she was not only an atheist, but a very committed one, who had absolutely no belief in any religious, spiritual or transcendent ideas at all. (and describes how in her family, and culture, her NON belief in god, or an afterlife of any kind was a very fundamental piece of her identity) Her NDE is not only an incredibly inspiring spiritual experience, but it's truly an illustration of how profound, life changing and powerful a near death experience can be. She also reports (like many others do) an increased psychic awareness post her experience, with really some incredible spirit guides, and understanding of how the "universe" works as a result of what she went through, during this otherwise traumatic event.

Hospital Near Death Experiences

If you are looking for an amazing and inspiring article in a mainstream newspaper (the Washington Post) on some of the incredible spiritual experiences people have at the end of life, check out the one at the link, following the excerpted comments below. (these are comments from people who have read the article, and are sharing their own personal experiences with what happens at the death beds, of their family members, mostly in hospice, or hospital settings) These are REAL death experiences of course, not "near death", but many of the features are very similar, insofar as the people who witness them are "sharing" in the actual transition. It's very interesting, and very cool to see this sort of stuff making it into the mainstream media, rather than trivialized as the hallucinations or imaginary ramblings of dying brains.

Skeptical of Psychics?

Here is today's short podcast on being skeptical about psychics, mediums and spiritual "anything", yet, still allowing yourself the experience of opening up to whatever it is that helps you heal. I confess in this short recording, as I've said many times in the past, personally......to being a skeptic myself, even whilst running several communities, and having many good friends who are professionals in the spiritual growth field. (authors, artists, psychics, mediums, spiritual life coaches, healers, et al) Here are my rules, as i share them with people who ask for advice, when seeking out spiritual advice in time of need, even while being skeptical of what is true. - Have an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out - Write down goals, expectations and outcomes before the reading - Don't let someone tell you "you're not ready" or "couldn't deal" with the info if it's not accurate or relevant. Sometimes a cigar, is just a cigar - and a shitty reading m…

Famous Psychics Los Angeles?

Q: Who are the most famous psychic mediums in LA? Who are the psychics the celebrities see when they have a problem? (this question, paraphrased for brevity and clarity, came via our FB page this morning) A: I think there are a few different answers to this question. First, there are the higher profile, more "fancy" mediums that get a lot of the industry buzz, that appear to be the "psychics to the stars" (a phrase that we hate) - and then there are the mediums who the locals love, and maybe, those of us who are a bit more passionate about evidential mediumship overall, as a science and genuine tool for spiritual exploration. A good example of this would be, to me....the late Sylvia Browne. In my view, Sylvia was as psychic as my uncle joe after one glass of wine too many at Thanksgiving dinner. (he would always get drunk, and start predicting everyones future, which was always a lot of fun....err....but not so much ;-) While Sylvia was "known" as a high profile, celebri…

Want to be Happier? Try This Meditation

Short Moments, Many Times. Here is a short exercise we are working on in our mediation, mindfulness and spiritual growth community. Sharing it here with the hope that some of our more intuitive friends find it helpful as well! :) -- --- Short Moments. Many times. There is a great meditation practice called METTA. (it’s often called loving kindness in the West) It sounds goofy – but’s it’s life changing, brain changing, body changing, behavior changing stuff. The Dali Lama once said - "if you want other people to be happy, practice compassion. If YOU want to be happy, practice compassion" Metta, or loving kindness meditation, is the meditation gift that keeps on giving. It literally changes your brain in a way that can transform your experience of being alive. (after all.....all spiritual growth has to include self care - and our internal experience is truly the one thing we can't escape, and must master if we want to live full, rich and rewarding lives) But Metta …

Your Favorite Psychic Mediums, Healers and Light Workers! (Tell us Who They Are!)

What has been your favorite psychic reading experience?  Were you ever a skeptic, and die hard NON believer, until having a personal spiritual experience that changed your mind?  Have you had a reading with a medium that has been SO good, that it transformed what you believe about life, death and what happens before, after and in between? While some of these truly remarkable, life changing experiences can be few and far between for many of us, when they happen....they can have a profound and even life long transformation on how we live our lives, and what we believe about ourselves, and others. In my own journey, interviewing 100 NDE survivors as part of a "life purpose" survey, was one of the most healing, helpful and hopeful things I've ever done, even being agnostic or uncertain what exactly was happening in their brains and bodies , when those folks were near death. These people just had an energy and quiet sense of certitude about the meaning of life that radiated fro…

How to: Overcoming Writers Block for Spiritual Authors, Helpers, Healers & Inspirational Writers

Have you ever struggled with writers block? If you are anything like the hundreds of inspirational architects, transformational teachers, luminous light workers, helpers, healers, and purpose driven professionals that we've worked with who radiate passion, wit and wisdom, but CAN'T get that book done, the antidote is easier than you realize. The truth is, most of us are so passionate, and feel so aligned with a sense of purpose and power about our message, that we make the pursuit of perfection, the enemy of achievement. You want to share SO much, and have so much to say....that that pesky and persistent "perfectionist" in your head keeps telling you it's not ready, right? Maybe you have a different excuse. Maybe your voice says the time isn't right - or the words aren't right - or the season isn't right?

An Interview with George Anderson: The “World’s Most Accurate Medium” Talks About Life, Death & the Embracing the Unknown

A fascinating interview with George Anderson, considered by many to be the world most accurate medium What I find so interesting about this interview, done in just the last year, is George's skepticism and authentic ability to communicate how little he DOES know, about how his gifts really work. Contrary to the absolute CERTAINTY that many lesser mediums bring to their practice, George's humility about what he's doing, and how little even he truly understands about what comes through during a session, is truly refreshing. Watch and enjoy - George Anderson is truly a character - and an amazing example of what evidential mediumship looks like in the world as well.

Real Afterlife Stories?

https://youtu.be/kl5cu1H4Hss Believe it or not, some of the best evidence, and anecdotes about the afterlife DON'T come from psychics and mediums Instead, they come from real people doing real work in the world.....in the spirit of service. Hospice nurses are some of the best witnesses to the wisdom of what the dying see and say, and if you truly want to be inspired about the magic and mystery of life, and what may await us all, go speak to a group of passionate, purposeful professionals who have been at the bedside of many who have made the transition. This video is an excellent talk by a nurse, on what she's experienced in hospital and hospice, and truly will make you think twice, regardless of what you believe.

James Van Praagh Reviews?

What are your thoughts about James Van Praagh? How much does a reading with James cost? Is he accurate in person, or just on TV? We've gotten a lot of questions about our feelings on JVP over the years. He's one of those mediums that I personally, just can't make a firm decision on. Why? There is something about James that feels a little bit theatric to me, and some of the things he has said over the years, have been decidedly "anti-scientific" and a bit of a stretch....EVEN for a topic as controversial as psychic mediumship, and life after death. One of the things we appreciate about famous mediums like John Edward, or even someone like Tyler Henry, is they seem to acknowledge how little we know about what happens after we die, and seem humbled and genuinely curious about how all of this stuff works. Sometimes, and this is just a personal opinion, I get the OPPOSITE feeling from James Van Praagh....as he seems to appear like he has all of the answers, knows …

What Does it Feel Like to Die?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0580d7l What does death feel like? Here is a wonderful short video that recounts 3 different Near Death Experiences from the perspectives of 3 people who were clinically dead, and came back to tell us about it. These are very traditional NDE's, full of light and love and the overwhelming feelings of peace and purpose that most folks report who have entered this magical and mysterious domain. There is something very healing about hearing the NDE's of others....as it offers a wide window into what the rest of us are going to go through ourselves, at some point....in the (hopefully!) very distant future ;-) Have you had an NDE?
