The 10 Best Known Psychics in the World

Here is a list of the 10 best known psychics in the world.  Some are living, and some have passed away.  There is a wide variety here ranging from Nostradamus to a modern day online intuitive counselor! 


1. Edgar Cayce

Imagine this:  every day of your life, you lay down on a sofa, close your eyes, and put yourself into a "sleep state" where you can then perform a psychic reading for anyone in the world.  This is what the incredible Edgar Cayce did every day for over 40 years!

According to the website devoted to Cayce and his works:

  • Edgar Cayce was a Sunday school teacher, and avid reader of the Bible
  • his readings encompassed over 10,000 topics, including past lives, Akashic records, and physical well being
  • he is the "most documented psychic of the 20th century"

I would have loved to have met Edgar Cayce!  He was a pioneer and, even after his death in 1945, he continues to be one of the best known psychics in the world. For more information on this fascinating man, visit his website at edgarcayce.org.


2. Sonia Choquette

Sonia Choquette is a world renowned psychic reader and spiritual teacher.  She radiates peace and love.

Her best-selling book Diary of a Psychic, was one of the first "psychic" books that I ever read, and I enjoyed it immensely.  Sonia's life story, and the beautiful way in which her abilities blossomed is worth the read.

There's no denying that Sonia Choquette has an impressive bio.  Here's just a small sample of the accomplishments that are listed on her website:

  • eight best-selling books
  • a PhD in Metaphysics
  • intuitive adviser to several New Age icons

Sonia Choquette's readings are of a soul nature - that is, they don't just focus on predictions.  She really wants her clients to understand their true soul's path.  Ms. Choquette is one of the most loved and best known psychics in the world today.


3. Jeane Dixon

Years ago, Jeane Dixon was one of the best known psychics and astrologers in the United States, well known for her predictions.  She passed away in 1997.

It is said that Jeane's gifts were discovered by a gypsy, and that her mother was very encouraging of her spiritual growth.  In addition to predictions, she also authored seven books including Horoscopes for Dogs!

If you were around in the 1960's, you may recall a little book called A Gift of Prophecy:  the Phenomenal Jeane Dixon that was written by Ruth Montgomery and told the story of Jeane's life.  The book was a smashing success in it's day, selling over 3 million copies!   That's pretty impressive considering those were the days before social media!

With great fame though, also came great skepticism.  Some praised Jeane Dixon as one of the most gifted prophets and clairvoyants in the world.  Yet when a prediction didn't come true, she was heavily criticized.


4. Linda Howe

When I read  How to Read the Akashic Records, by Linda Howe, it literally changed my life. 

The Akashic Records are, in essence, a vibrational record of your soul.  They are accessed through a sacred prayer.  In her book, Linda explains that during the fateful day of September 11, 2001 while the United States was under a massive terrorist attack, her trademarked Pathway Prayer Process (sacred prayer) was channeled through her.

I would encourage anyone to learn more about Linda. Howe.   You may also enjoy Healing Through the Akashic Records, also by Linda Howe.

In September of 2013, I had the honor of studying in person with Linda Howe for a weekend in Massachusetts.  You can learn about the life changing experience I had that weekend here.  If you are interested in scheduling an Akashic Records reading with me, you can learn more here.


5. Caroline Myss

A friend introduced me to the works of Caroline Myss years ago.  She is truly something unique and special.

Caroline Myss is an author, medical intuitive, and spiritual teacher. She is highly regarded and respected all over the world.

According to her website, she no longer gives private readings, as she felt she could reach more people through her writing, including:

  • Sacred Contracts: Awakening Your Divine Potential
  • Anatomy of the Spirit: The 7 Stages of Power and Healing
  • Entering the Castle: Finding the Inner Path to God and Your Soul's Purpose

In addition, she founded the Caroline Myss Education Institute (CMED) for those wanting to "enrich [their] spiritual life."  You can also listen to her on Hay House Radio.

6. Nostradamus

There are some fascinating people on our list of best known psychics, but none of my research surprised me as much as that of Nostradamus (1503-1566). 

Nostradamus was an astrologer who became famous for his predictions.   He had an extensive background in the medical field as well, and treated people all over Europe for the plague.

Years later, he began meditating, and it is said that he started having visions of prophecy and writing about them.  The rest, as they say, is history.

Many feel that Nostradamus' predictions are hogwash, but others credit him with predicting some famous world events including:

  • the September 2011 terrorist attacks on the United States
  • the atomic bomb
  • the death of Princess Diana

No matter how you feel about Nostradamus, he is just as famous now as he was centuries ago.  Quite an accomplishment in itself!

Update:  Since the original publication of this article in 2012, the television series Ancient Aliens did a segment regarding Nostradamus questioning whether Nostradamus was receiving his information from the Akashic Records.  I guess we'll never know for sure, but it an interesting perspective!


7. Erin Pavlina

Erin Pavlina isn't your ordinary blogger!  Actually, on her blog, she describes herself an as "intuitive counselor."  I describe her as one of the best known psychics online!

According to her blog, Erin Pavlina has given thousands of readings, written over 600 articles (a monumental task in itself!) and has been intuitive all her life.  In 2006, she began her blog, and since, has amassed a huge fan base from all over the globe. 

My research shows that she is a highly sought out psychic, and her name is searched thousands of times per month via the internet! 


8. The Psychic Twins, Terry and Linda Jamison

Psychic Twins, Terry and Linda Jamison are known around the globe for their predictions.   These best known psychics are famous for predicting the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

Here are some fun facts about Terry and Linda Jamison:

  • The Psychic Twins say they have been intuitive since childhood and were featured in the popular documentary, Psychic Children.
  • Their guest appearance on the Tyra Banks show in 2009 has received more than 1.2 million views on YouTube!
  • On an appearance of the morning talk show The View, the twins explained that they are referred to by some as "Nostradamus in stilettos."  In that same television appearance, they also say that they have worked with the Pentagon, and claim that they are the only documented psychic twins in the world.

In addition to tons of media interviews and public predictions, the twins have written two books, Psychic Intelligence: Tune In and Discover the Power of Your Intuition, and Separated at Earth: The Story of the Psychic Twins.


9. Colette Baron Reid

A phenomenal speaker, respected intuitive counselor, and best-selling author, Colette Baron Reid does it all!  And that's why she makes our list of best known psychics.

Here are some of her accolades, according to her website:

  • Numerous television appearances, including Dr. Phil, and Ricki Lake.
  • Endorsements by the well respected past-life expert Dr. Brian Weiss, and renowned author Dr. Wayne Dyer.

Colette Baron Reid is also a spiritual teacher.  Her newest book, Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much, is  groundbreaking, and it has a 5-star rating at Amazon.com! 

She also authored the wildly popular book, The Map: Finding the Magic and Meaning in the Story of Your Life.


10. Doreen Virtue

You may be surprised to see Doreen Virtue on our list of best known psychics.  Many consider her the "angel lady," and may forget that she is intuitive.

According to her website, Doreen Virtue has been a naturally gifted clairvoyant since childhood.  Due to fear of ridicule, she ignored her gifts until one frightful day in 1995 when a divine message saved her life.  Since then, she has:

  • written over 50 angel and spiritual books, including the best-selling Healing With the Angels and Messages from Your AngelsShe has also created beautiful angel and oracle card decks.  Her works get glowing reviews.
  • appeared on countless television programs and have had mention in numerous magazines
  • become a respected spiritual teacher
