Who are the best psychics and the top spirit mediums in the world? There are many authentic psychic mediums who have real psychic talents and who all offer legitimate psychic readings in many countries. It would be impossible to create a perfect international list of the most famous and most popular psychics in the world, but here is my personal attempt.
The United States is undoubtedly the world center for celebrity psychics, but I have aimed to include top psychics from other continents also, to make this list more representative of global talent. My list of favorites therefore includes psychics mostly from America, but also from Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.
I grew up in the world of psychics and over the years I have had readings with many mediums, spiritualists, psychics, astrologers, numerologists and tarot card readers. Some were excellent, some were interesting, some mediocre, and many were really, really, really bad!
Please rate this list!
Why this list?
You may ask, why spend so much time and money searching for that one perfect psychic reading, or that one amazing psychic? Those few outstanding readings have helped me make good decisions and smart choices. My first psychic reading changed my life in ways I could never imagine, and from that day I have consulted some of the best leading psychics when life threw me for a loop.
I am eternally grateful for the advice and guidance I received over the years from gifted psychics. There is so much negative media reporting and harsh criticism of psychics by those who have never even had a reading. Psychic news is usually one-sided, prejudiced, and written to sell magazines or promote gossip blogs. I wanted to show the other side of the story and show the incredible talent of some of these top psychics. With this article, I hope to honor the wonderful service they offer to the world.

What Is a Psychic Medium?
Not all psychics have the gift of mediumship, but all mediums have psychic abilities. Mediums use the psychic senses, like clairvoyance, clairaudience or clairsentience, to perceive messages from higher dimensions and the spiritual realm. Not only can a psychic medium relay messages from lost loved ones, they can also offer psychic guidance and future predictions.
The Difference Between a Psychic and a Medium
PSYCHICS have the talent or skill to perceive information that is beyond the normal reach of the five senses. They use this information to gain insight into the past, present, and future. This ability is also known as a "sixth sense," or psychic ability. Parapsychology experts refer to it as extra sensory perception (ESP).
They can see, hear, and feel the "unseen," or that which is beyond the normal range of human perception. These abilities are called clairvoyance (seeing), clairaudience (hearing), and clairsentience (feeling, sensing).
Psychics are best known for their ability to predict future events, but their talents go far beyond prophecy. True psychics are not fortune tellers. They seldom make use of tools like tarot cards, crystal balls, or pendulums. They are gifted spiritual guides and teachers who can offer insight into some of life's most difficult challenges.
MEDIUMS or clairvoyants are spiritually gifted people who can communicate with discarnate entities or spirit beings. Some mediums specialize in communication with the spirits of loved ones who have passed away. This is called "crossing over" into the afterlife. A session with a medium usually involves receiving messages from the "others side" and evidence to confirm that there is indeed life after death. Mediums are also conduits for other entities or beings, such as angels, spirit guides and ascended masters. Mediums who convey messages from such sources are called "channels."
JOHN EDWARD is probably the most well-known psychic medium in the world. His rise to stardom is mostly due to his popular live stage performances, several books, various international tours, and a series of television shows broadcast in many countries all over the world. Two television shows, Crossing Over with John Edward and John Edward Cross Country brought him wide recognition. He is also recognized as an author and teacher and is popular with the mainstream media. As is the case with all famous psychics, he has his share of skeptics. For more information about John visit his official website at JohnEdward.net
I think that the majority of messages are validating messages to confirm the survival of conscious.
— John Edward
TERRY AND LINDA JAMISON are known as "the Psychic Twins." They gained recognition in recent years for the fact that so many of their predictions are documented in the public domain. Their most famous prophecy was made in November, 1999 on the Art Bell Radio Show in front of an audience of 20 million people. During this radio interview, the twins predicted the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 2000. The twins have continued to make accurate predictions of world events, including medical breakthroughs, natural disasters, and the economy. They also predicted some of the world's biggest financial frauds and political scandals". For more information visit their official website at PsychicTwins.com
Identical twins have a stronger bond with one another because they are the same person genetically. We are the only psychic twins who are reliably psychic for anyone at any time, and yes, we are very psychic with each other!
— Linda and Terry Jamison
THERESA CAPUTO gained recognition for her work on the popular television series Long Island Medium. Like most of the top psychic mediums in the world, she started out by giving psychic readings to private clients, a business which she started with just one business card.

She has been a practicing medium for more than a decade and tours the country with her live show. She has also written several popular books.

My wish for everyone I meet is that Spirit gives them a message that brings them the most peace at that moment.

Tell Us About Your Favorite Psychic Medium!
Tracey on June 25, 2020:
The one I find phenomenal is Lauda Leon. She should be on this list and on television reaching many so I would really like to see her on this list and I'm not alone in that.
Jeremy Santon on March 26, 2019:
I've used psychics on oranum before. Jahben seemed to me as an authentic reader. He was very warm and very accurate with is timeframe.
Krystyna Peewee on February 07, 2019:
Claire Broad is know as ‘The Honest Medium’ and is amazing! She is down-to-earth, works with integrity and honesty. She co-wrote a book with Author Theresa Cheung which is really good.
She gave really good evidence of the afterlife and I’d recommend her though I think she’s booked up for months ahead!! (UK)
theresa bartholomew on October 28, 2017:
Ive been to a few psychics and one famous one. Just ok. I found one in Dallas and I was floored by his talent. Absolutely, hands down the best reading I have ever had. I dont use him often because he gives me so much information that I dont need to revisit for a long time unless something dire comes up. He's not famous but he is as good if not better than any so called famous psychic I know. He is Robert Caruso of Dallas TX. Look him up. You will never regret it.
monica on October 25, 2017:
Cant beat Robert Caruso of Dallas. He may not be famous but he is extremely accurate and no BS.
Joan michaud on October 17, 2017:

Sarah savage on February 27, 2016:
Randa Awn Handler from USA on February 11, 2016:
Interesting tally! I just come across your Hub. You can see my take on psychics in my recent Hub :https://hubpages.com/politics/Calling-All-Psychics...
I happen to think that 'fake' psychics give 'real' psychics a bad name! The paranormal world is really hard to explain and thanks for sharing this Hub.
S.Sobell on September 10, 2015:
I vote for Jennifer Wallens USA for Best Psychic and Best Medium. She's ranked #1 medium and #2 psychic in USA by timessquarepress 2014-2015 voting by public.
Karol Bates on June 14, 2015:

Vicky K on April 30, 2015:
I found Anthon thru your site thank u! I got 2 readings and he is fabulous & his rates so reasonable. Thanks for this he has changed my life around!!
alixmartin on March 23, 2015:
Very interresting article also , but sadly all those psychics medium are not affordable and impossible to get an appointmment . I have read some Books. Thanks for sharing this .. And thanks to other people to share names of some good psychics we can actually speak too .
Kate M Lennon from London, United Kingdom on March 10, 2015:
I don't know anything about the American psychics listed here (the only ones I've heard of are Terry and Linda Jamison), but in the UK Zak Martin is rated far more highly than the British psychics in this list.
natashadee on February 02, 2015:
There's an extremely accurate psychic that is not on your list or in many public lists, however she's in many business peoples 'black-book' or on speed dial, she is discovering illnesses and helps with fertility issues. her readings are based on aura and photographs.
Regina doesn't read (asks) about the dead / spirits nor answer questions about them. She is an international psychic who is based in Toronto and she meets with her clients all over the world in person or on rare occasions over the phone. You should really ask in the 'right' circulars about her and you can always visit her website http://reginaweig.com
andrea charles on November 08, 2014:
i would say i have been to many psychics and mediums, and was told by afriend to go to a lady called angela JENSEN I CAN HONESTLY SAY SHE BLEW ME AWAY she was fantastic very gifted lady
Maria Cane on November 07, 2014:
Have any of you ever heard of RainGoddess? She is simply the very best psychic I have ever seen. She really blew my mind. You really must see this lady. She is not as hard to reach as these psychics :) She is the number 1 in my top 10 list.
Archie on November 05, 2014:
What about psychic medium Tristan Rimbaud from the FOX reality show Trading Spouses?
ana on October 04, 2014:
I paid a lot of money to see John Edwards and I didn't enjoy it at all and was a waste of money. I paid less for Theresa and thought it to be authentic and awesome!! I would go see her again any day.
eve on September 12, 2014:
I have to say I have never heard of these psychics before. I am not being rude or anything but I think Mia Dolan is the best psychic. interesting list though.
rose on September 11, 2014:
John Edward is an excellent psychic medium I have seen him many times and never ceases to amaze me.
leo on September 02, 2014:
Great article and all these psychics are great. But there's one psychic that is among the top; the Paradoctor. He will BLOW YOUR MIND. I've seen him in action; no holds barred and he fires from the hip. I would definitely have him in the list of top psychics.
J on August 23, 2014:
I think this list is great for the good famous psychic's, but I always say, just because they are famous often does not make them the best, it just makes them good for the media. Im not knocking anyone of their gifts, I respect everyone on that list. Yet I do not believe that they have more of a connections than many local mediums I know, and by far less spirituality than others. It takes a certain type of person to be famous, so I don't think this is an accurate list of who is the most accurate, yet who has the best business sense and who is willing to do what it takes to be apart of the media. I would encourage everyone to get a personal recommendation from someone in your local town. You may get a far better reading and with a fraction of the cost.
Orlando psychics on July 27, 2014:
good blog to read
malissa on July 25, 2014:
Elizabeth Brown was very informative and right on names of the loved ones I have who have passed She told me today (confirmed) that they continue to visit me and gave instructions to share with my loved ones The names of people who came thru were amazingly informative and confirmed what I n knew that I do continue to here from my family.members who passed ! She was amazing todsy!
Tyler Blakes from Orange, California on July 19, 2014:
These are all top Psychics, however, on a much more affordable scale I go to Psychic filer sites that filter out the top psychic readers on the internet like http://freetarotpsychicreadings.com or http://onefreereading.com I have use both filter sites in the past for Love and Spiritual Advice. My wife also got a great pregnancy prediction from the first site I listed.
Suzie from Carson City on July 17, 2014:
This is truly interesting.....I do appreciate this topic and appreciate learning more about popular and/or infamous psychics.
I live very near "Lily Dale," so I'm not as much a skeptic as so many people seem to be. As with anything else, there are good, bad and indifferent....some mediums are even excellent, which CAN be life-changing experiences.
I saw several of Lisa William's TV shows and I really like her. I have had a tough time with John Edward, but this particular video is one of his better interviews.
Thanks for sharing this with your readers.....Up+++
Misty Grimstead on July 08, 2014:
My favorite is Serenity Moore she is a very talented and amazing psychic medium she is compassionate and so very sweet everyone should look here up shes amazing
Deborah Sexton on July 07, 2014:
Thank you for this hub. I know of some of the psychics on your list but didn't know them all. I believe in and know these gifts are from God. I get psychic messages myself, and when I do I am very happy to deliver the messages.
Dickie Mill on June 18, 2014:
Not overly impressed by the medium placing #1 in this list. Sally Morgan is outstanding. Saw her live and she is amazing! Lisa Williams is also a fantastic medium and I am also a big fan of another female British medium called, Mia Dolan. She is superb . Check her out online, you will be really impressed.

iggy jones on May 20, 2014:
DAWN CHRISTIE of www.DawnChristieRetreats.com is THE MOST gifted spiritual messenger alive today. She is astonishing.
I have had readings in person, over the phone, and even on Skype and it changed my life!
She works with every celebrity you can think of too.
She is much much much more than a psychic…on a whole other level!
nicki j. on April 25, 2014:
Rose on April 25, 2014:
No way . . the most praised hidden gem is DAWN CHRISTIE
If you can steal her away from like every clebrity under the sun; you will
understand the difference between here and the rest of the people on this list.
The BEST and I mean number one out there is Dawn Christie: www.DawnChristieRetreats.com.
I have had readings over Skype, at her retreat spa in LA, no matter she is so accurate it is mind-blowing, gifted is no the word. She is psychic to every A-list celeb and dignitary we know, but she works with everyone and anyone.
She is THE REAL deal amidst many phonies out there.
She told me things about why I was born and why my mother got sick etc...all information that came true and the reason behind like literally everything I have ever wanted to understand about my life.
She's like a walking encyclopedia of truth!
Wanna know the best part,....I never said one word or asked even one question....and it was that good.
She is graced with a gift, for real!!
Milena66 on April 24, 2014:
I've had many readings by Charmaine Wilson in Aus. One on ones before she become 'The One' and afterwards in her travelling shows. She is amazing. She has reconnected me with my father, uncles, father inlaw and Mother inlaw. Mostly in different reading , but they have come though together. All have been stand out reading with special insights. I love how the personalities come through with the readings.
But one of my most favourite is when my father come though and was talking about my son he had never met. My father died when my son was 2 years. He spoke about my sons musical talent and then took credit for it....yep that's my dad. It did freak my son out a bit to know his granddad was listening while he jammed. Wow we are so lucky to have her here and be so accessible.
Sheryl on April 24, 2014:
Psychic directories (most of them) are a crock. They are PAID services to which a psychic must apply and their "tests" consist of one or two readings conducted by employees of the directory service. Very rarely do paying "psychics" fail these tests. If you are looking for a proven and scientifically tested psychic/medium (and can't afford celebrity psychic rates), you should look to the non-profit, science-based testing organizations such as the Forever Family Foundation or The Windbridge Institute for Applied Research in Human Potential.
Brian C on April 23, 2014:
Four of these top 10 are in a brand new book called Conversations With Mediums by Australian author Scott Podmore - check it out at www.conversationswithmediums.com and the facebook page. A compelling read.
Sherry Andrea from Orlando, Florida on April 12, 2014:
Happy to see Anthon St Maarten made the top 10! I would absolutely recommend Psychic Tee aka Tee Gregory.
Jazmin Johnson on January 13, 2014:
The only one I will go to for things I need to know about his name is Felipé. I heard him on the radio once and I was instantly intrigued. I don't remember his website but his facebook page is http://facebook.com/psychiclovemagic and would would definitely recommend you message him for a reading because he is accurate and funny and he even has an x-rated Tarot deck for asking healthy adult sex life questions
mikesquid on January 05, 2014:
this article is very correct. few years back i had a reading with Sally Morgan. She was amazing !! I have also tried Terry and Linda Jamison . they was very quick to tune in my situation. But unfortunately they are not affordable anymore and they are doing readings for only important people. i live in Australia now and i have found in england a very accurate psychic. she is french and live in england. she works like the twins psychics . she was very quick with her answers and all was true. She pointed out my problems and change it. if i have today to recommend a psychic i will say to go to Venus Psychic .she is on twitter i think . I am sure Venus Psychic will go far and be one of the best Psychics in uk. I had her 2 times last year. venuspsychic com
Guest on November 17, 2013:
I recommend Kimberly Bunch, a psychic medium, far above anybody else.
June Field on October 30, 2013:
