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 When Stoned?

Ever since we've opened our Psychic Questions section of the site, we've gotten tons of emails with great questions about becoming psychic, spiritual experiences, precognitive dreams, dreams with spiritual components, (visitation from loved ones who are crossed) and many other cool, creative and unique questions about psychic gifts and abilities. One of my favorites came in a few minutes ago, by private message on our FB page: Psychic when stoned? (this was the very nice person's question, about her incredible experiences with spirit, after smoking pot) Believe it or not, as I searched the web, there is a lot of great information out there about the relationship between smoking pot and increased intuition, psychic abilities, seeing spirits, and more. Check out this article below - for starters - (much of which I don't fully agree) - with lots more to come! Personally, I have always had an affinity for plant medicine, starting at 15 years old I began experimenting and…

Are Psychics Ever Wrong?

Quick Poll: Have you ever had a really GOOD psychic reading where only some of the reading was true....BUT, the stuff that was true was incredibly moving and evidential? There is no psychic that is always right. (and we get a lot of questions about this, especially when only SOME of the reading is accurate, but it's SO accurate that the "misses" become confusing) Share your experience with REAL psychic readings that were really good - but maybe, NOT 100% accurate, and what you think it tells us about these wild, weird, magical and mysterious psychic abilities we all seem to have.

Are Near Death Experiences From God? Seeing Jesus in an NDE

Are near death experiences biblical? Are near death experiences TRUE? Are out of body experiences during death merely a hallucination, or are they a true glimpse of what like looks like when we're dead? https://youtu.be/eHUuebeYgaI And what about people who see Jesus during an NDE? Does everyone see God when we die, or do people who don't believe, see something completely different? This video of a Texas teen who had a near death experience is a testament to all those who want to believe Jesus will be there when you die. Regardless of what you believe, this is an inspiring NDE, and we can all be thankful that this teen survived to share his extraordinary experience with Jesus, as he believes he did. What do YOU believe? Are NDE's real? Are biblical near death experiences more believable? Share your thoughts and feelings with us on FB, or in the community comments below.

Psychic Mediums for Pets

Todays quick question: Anyone know or recommend a good pet psychic medium? We get a ton of questions about psychic readings for pets (both living and crossed) and the truth is, we don't really have a lot of personal or community experience with pet readings. There are some in our community who DO pet readings, but I can't vouch for them, nor do I know anyone who has had an exceptional pet reading for a pet, that i can completely recommend. (i've had a few pet readings myself, including a super memorable one in Key West a few years ago that was uncanny in how accurate (and entertaining!) the medium was, but I'm not sure I could find out who and where she is these days to recommend.

Are all Mediums Fake? The Today Show Exposes Psychic Mediums (or Do They?)

The Today show goes undercover to test "#psychic mediums".

But is this sort of reporting fair? Does it tell us anything about the truth about psychic mediums, or spiritual realities, or precognition, genuine intuition or anything else? Or, is it just an example of super lazy journalism, attacking the lowest hanging fruit....and making an example out of some street corner "psychics" who the vast majority of people already know, are far from really psychic in the first place? Our thoughts: The problem with this sort of thing, of course, is how completely confused the reporter is, about what a medium DOES, and how they purport to do it. The report starts off saying that "mediums" claim to predict your future - but that's really NOT what a medium is or does - and to conflate a "tarot card" reader in a NYC cubicle, back alley - or someone who uses crystals to predict the future - with the work of someone like John Edward, or Tyler Henry, or George Anderson, …

Psychics for Real? Genuine Encounters with Real Mediums

What is a real psychic reading like? How does it differ from a cold reading, or a good guesser or someone who is just sort of making it all up? What is an evidential medium, and how do those types of readings differ from people who are less accurate, or less impressive, or less intuitive than others? There is much controversy (and a lot of spiritual sounding silliness) in the psychic/medium spaces, and many people who try to pass themselves off as "evidential" or as "certified" psychics or similar sounding silliness, when in reality, they are just sort of winging it! Alternatively, there ARE in fact, many evidential mediums out there that have extraordinary insights, and amazing abilitites to tap into things the rest of us can't see, which makes finding them, all the more exciting. We have a brand new series coming on evidential mediums, and real psychic experiences, and we hope you'll tune in, and it ought to be a great way of both learning about your own natural gi…

Need to Find a Real Medium?

What makes one psychic medium REAL, and another one not?  Does it all come down to ability?  Are some mediums just super superior over his or her peers, or is there more at play that goes into it?  And why does one medium get SUCH a great response from one subset of their clients, and yet another.....has a reading and walks out thinking, what the heck just happened? Does that make everyone whose had a reading from that medium in the past gullible, or just willing to believe a bunch of BS, or, is it possible, that the quality of the session, could have something to do with your actual psychic connection with the person doing the reading itself? Here is something I've learned in my own experience watching many considered "world class mediums"  work and what I've learned from their HITS, as well as their many misses.   The BIGGEST secret about psychic abilities, amongst those that "know" is this: It's all about connection. And much like some people feel a "pull" towa…

Freaky Psychic Predictions? (True Psychic Stories)

Have you had any crazy, cool or unusual psychic experiences?  Have you had anything happen in your life that you wouldn't have believed it.....had someone else told you the same story? As someone who has written and shared hundreds of articles, blog posts and newsletters on psychic readings, you could say I've had my fair share of psychic predictions. As a matter of fact, as of 2017, I've had more psychic readings in my day than just about anyone else in the world that I know. Lots of great experiences.  Many have shifted what I believe about the world, and my place in it as well. But, if we're being honest - plenty more bad ones to boot. It would be untrue to say that most of the readings i've gotten over the years have been accurate, insightful or exceptional at all. Like everything else in life, talking to a psychic is a mixed bag. I'd guess about 15% of the experiences have been really good. About 5% have blown me away. But those 5%, including the psych…

Is This How Psychics Trick People?

How do psychics trick people? What is cold reading? Do mediums cheat? And how do mediums appear to be accurate, when they are really just coughing up obvious information? We get a lot of questions about cold readings, bad readings and readings that sound more like a scam....than spirit. That said, some of the articles out there that aim to "debunk" psychic mediumship are SO obviously misguided as well, as to appear like these folks had ONE bad reading, or saw ONE obvious film flam medium on TV, and then decided that every reading, all the time, was equally as obvious. Here is a quick tip for the skeptics out there. You don't believe in an afterlife. We get it. You think all psychics are scams. We understand that, too! But, at least do yourself some journalistic credibility and do some research on the article you are publishing.....if in fact, you are getting paid to write it :) It amazes me how many people think that the rest of us are so GULLIBLE, that we can…

Why Do Psychics Charge so Much?

Why do psychic mediums charge so much money? Shouldn't a real psychic work for free? What does god think about psychics who get paid big bucks to do "his" work? Does any of this really matter? Here is a comment that came in early today that I thought captured the spirit (no pun intended) of what many people want to know regarding psychic prices, and why, at least in my view (A point of view not shared by many of my partners, I might add!) there is absolutely NO relationship between religion, and "god" and what psychic mediums charge for a reading. I'd go as far as to add, to me.....a really good medium is someone who has trained in certain capacities that we all have to one degree or another - and not something that is related to spirituality at all. You can be a really olympic quality meditator, and have incredible experiences with otherworldly visions and feel connected with "the other side" and have amazing adventures in the astral, or ethereal realms. That doesn't make yo…

Reginald Lewis Reads Toni Braxton

https://youtu.be/40wmDtvJXjA Reginald Lewis is a trance medium & ordained minister who has recently seen a huge increase in public interest across our site, FB page and our community overall. It's always interesting to me, when there is a SUDDEN and huge uptick in the amount of inquiries a specific psychic medium or member of our community gets from the public (people will email us, inbox us or even reach out to us by phone!) to ask what we think about a spiritual teacher. In this case, not being really familiar with Reginald (but knowing he has long been a member of our community) I was a bit surprised at all the sudden attention he was getting. Now? We know why :) Reginald Lewis has appeared on the Steve Harvey show a few times it seems, and with each week, more and more people want to know more and more about him. What do YOU think? Have you had a reading with Reginald Lewis? Have you seen him on TV? Have you been impressed......or, not so much? Share …

Marketing a Spiritual Business

What is the easiest way to market my spiritual business? What do "light workers" need to know to turn our life purpose into a profitable business? If you are anything like the majority of people who work in the helping, healing or spiritual services business, and STRUGGLE with marketing, you are obviously in good company. The little known secret about helpers, healers and light workers of all types is this: We either err on the side of NO marketing mojo or business skills, or err on the side of buying into the spiritual business "gurus" who often sell and recommend really silly, superficial and ineffective brand building content that is akin to spinning your wheels for weeks, months or even years.

What does Spirit Look Like?

What do spirits look like?  How do mediums see spirit?  Do people who have died appear as the same age and appearance as when they passed.....or do they look like they did when younger?   We got a pretty interesting question on Facebook this weekend about how spirits in the afterlife look to mediums.  And the truth is, like most answers in the spiritual domain, it really depends on who you ask. Some mediums see spirits, or deceased  people, in clear and solid form.  Most often, these mediums will say, spirit appears to them in the same physical construction as they did during life.  (often a medium will see a visual image of what someone looked like prior to  death, or sometimes, they'll see someone much younger and more vital, especially if the  deceased crossed at an advanced age. Other mediums don't see spirits at all as physical bodies.  They'll see energy, and try to glean from  that energy a particular identity, or wait for that constellation of energy to a…

Taking Psychic Detectives to the Next Level! (A Police Chief Who Recommends Speaking to a Medium)

Are psychic detectives real? What about police chiefs who RECOMMEND victims speak to a psychic medium to get closure after a crime? A fascinating story about a RI police chief who not only visits mediums himself.....but who actually recommends and refers the public to speak to one, especially if they've been victimized, or lost a loved one in a violent (or tragic) way. Even though LaCross said no one he has approached has ever called him crazy, he knows many are skeptical about an afterlife, much less that people can communicate with the dead. Some skeptics included his colleagues. “I was a skeptic,” said James Cunha, Barrington town manager. “I would say I’ve heard enough stories that I’m not a skeptic any longer. If he believes in it, it gives me enough evidence it is probably true.” LaCross, who says he doesn’t get compensated for referrals and pays the going rate for sessions, believes there are good and bad folks calling themselves mediums. He trusts the ones who a…

Psychic Medium Readings and Events in NJ?

Lots of our subscribers, Facebook friends and general community is located in the greater NorthEast, so it should be no great surprise that we get a lot of questions about psychics, mediums and spiritual events in NJ, Philly and throughout the tri-state area. One of our FB friends (and a very gifted medium herself) shared an event with our group earlier today featuring Anthony Mrocka in October. The details are below. I'm not familiar with Anthony personally, but a lot of people have brought up his name over the last few months, as a medium worth checking out in person, online or via one of his local (or international) events or appearances.

Spirit Visitations? What end of life experiences can tell us about what happens after we die

What do the dying know that we don't? What do the dying SEE or experience or feel, that we can't? What glimmer or glimpse into the invisible world that awaits are available to those close to making the transition? Or, as many others argue, are ALL end of life and spiritually transformative experiences merely the blips of bad brain, on the precipice of fading away into oblivion? There are many inspiring stories about what people see and experience close to death. Many mediums (including many we have listed here) have shared some incredible things they've felt, witnessed or seen as the spirit leaves the body. But, can they be believed? Or is that too, just wishful thinking? The best evidence often comes from caregivers in hospital settings, who witness the wild, weird and often wonderful things that people say, see and do as they leave this life. Some of the incredible stories below are an example of this and are hard to explain away. What do you believe? …

10 Questions With Celebrity Psychic Medium Laura Powers

What is Your Superpower? One of my unusual abilities and specialties is being able to see and sense dark entities from different dimensions and clear them away. I came to realize that there were some beings and phenomena that even other talented psychics were not seeing but that I was able to see. Growing up this was confusing as I really thought maybe I was crazy! But eventually I did receive confirmation from other psychics about some of what I saw. And in some cases, I was able to confirm what I saw through the experience of a client. For example, I've had many clients with headaches that would not go away and with no apparent physical cause. I would see and sense an entity attached to their head and clear it and once the entity was cleared the headache went away too. Over time I learned to trust what I was sensing even when others couldn't see or sense what I did.

Are Psychics and Mediums Real? Deepak Chopra on the Power of Now & Spiritual Reality

https://youtu.be/xcHaYAq87cs Are psychics and mediums real? What does eastern philosophy say about talking to deceased loved ones and ancestors? Can meditation help me connect to loved ones i've lost.....who have crossed? What is the best evidence for the reality of spiritual realms? An interesting glimpse into the thoughts of Deepak Chopra on psychic mediums. Many people have found Deepak's books and beliefs to be empowering, enlightening and spiritually transforming, and yet, it's difficult to find places and spaces where he discusses psychic abilities, communicating with spirits, and these types of more "paranormal" experiences in a concrete way. (this is true of other well known spiritual authors as well - people like Eckhart Tolle and others seem to suggest they believe in something bigger and beyond the body, but whether that translates into a spiritual realm, where we continue to "exist" in some way, is often difficult to discern. Here Deepak Chopra exp…

Conversations with Clairvoyants: My First Spiritual Experience with Ashley Strong

Here is a short interview we did with Ashley Strong. Ashley is not a "famous" medium or well known like many of the people we feature on our community, but as we are exploring some of the various people doing this work in the world, we reached out to a bunch of folks like Ashley, in the hope that they might offer some experience, or insight or perspective that our audience may find helpful. You can read her short Q and A - and decide for yourself, below! Q:  What was your first spiritual experience.   To be honest, I’m not sure which experience was my first! Throughout life, I’ve seen lights, colors, sparkles, and people both internally and externally. I've also always had internal conversations and heard things that other people didn't. When I came out of the spiritual closet to my aunt she wasn’t surprised at all. Her response? “I’ve always known. I mean you used to talk to people on the ceiling that no one else could see.” I don’t remember that but I do reme…

How to Find Your Flow: (Business Tips for Inspirational Authors, Helpers, Healers and Enlightened Entrepreneurs)

A little something from our podcast for the light workers, transformational teachers, ,inspirational authors, and enlightened entrepreneurs in our community! How is your work changing the world? That is the call of true #spiritual service, and if you have a gift....without that piece of the puzzle (or process) you shrink your story by NOT stepping up and standing out. Ask yourself this: Where do you lose your freedom? What distractions pull you off course? What makes you shrink your story, curb your contribution, and live a life smaller than what you know you were born to achieve? So many of us spend so much of our time spinning our wheels, planning, aiming, re-planning, re-perfecting, re-aiming and ultimately.....never launching anything great. The good news? The rest of your life starts now. In this moment. It is moment 1, or day 1, as you read these words. The pursuit of perfection, is the enemy of achievement. So start getting your face, muddy, ma…
