The best psychic medium can be the difference between a reading that knocks your socks off, and one that’s easily forgotten. Here are some easy ways to find an amazing reader locally or online:
1. Word of Mouth is Always Best
Visiting spiritual mediums and intuitive readers is much less taboo than it was years ago, so don’t be afraid to ask family or friends for referrals.
My practice as a medium and intuitive reader has been built solely on word of mouth.
2. New Age Shops Can be a Great Resource
New age shops carry things like sage, tarot cards, etc. Most of these shops rent space to intuitive readers.
Often, shop owners will seek out the very best psychic mediums and screen them by having a personal reading of their own.
Here’s what to do:
- Ask the employees to recommend their best psychic medium (make sure you specify which type of reading you are looking for – mediumship, intuitive, etc.). If you have more than one shop in your area, go to the one with the best reputation. Don’t know which that is? It’s usually the one with the best vibe, has employees that are down to earth, and seems to get a good amount of customers.
- Another option is to see if the shop offers any classes. Many times, the spiritual teachers who run the classes have good reputations and years of experience. This can be an easy way to find a best psychic medium in your area.
3. Know What You Want
The very first step at finding the best psychic medium is knowing what type of reading you want.
Remember, not all readers do the same things. Mediums will connect with your loved ones in spirit, while Akashic Record readers (my favorite type of reading!) usually won’t.
Some readers, like myself, offer different types of readings, such as a combined mediumship/intuitive reading. Yet others practice methods of divination such as tarot.
It would be a shame to set up an appointment with someone to connect with a loved one in heaven, and then find out that the reader only offers intuitive sessions. Double check that the psychic you select suits your needs.
If you are having an intuitive reading, it’s also a good idea to know some “reading basics”:
4. Let’s Talk Money: Price Does Not Always Equal Quality
I learned this lesson the hard way. I once paid $700 for a half hour reading (crazy, I know!) with a celebrity psychic and it was awful. Not only was there no connection between the reader and me, I honestly don’t think she was legitimate.
Price does not guarantee a good psychic reader. The ingredients that make someone a best psychic medium are:
- natural ability
- study/training with a mentor
- a good relationship with their own spirit guides and understanding how they best work with their own intuitive gifts (this is so important!)
Here are two fantastic posts about how much you should pay for a psychic reading:
5. Be Aware of Psychic Scams
Don’t be in such a rush to have a reading that you leave yourself vulnerable to getting scammed. There are all sorts of scams out there ranging from those online and off. Take the time to find the right reader for you.
You really want to trust your gut in this process. If something feels off or funny about an intuitive reader, there is probably a reason.
If you find that you’re running to psychics often for advice or “hopping” from one psychic to another, take caution that you aren’t becoming addicted to psychics. You can learn about how often you should get psychic advice here.
6. Secret Tip :)
Here’s a cool secret tip that a lot of people don’t know about:
See who popular psychics and mediums recommend.
Who are the best psychic mediums that you can think of right now? If you can’t afford to see that person, or if they have a very long waiting list, try this:

Cautions and Tips for Finding the Best Psychic Medium Online
7. Online Psychics are Great – if You Know Who to Trust
Some of the best psychic mediums can be found online. I was very pleased with my reading from AskNow in which the psychic answered my questions AND was able to connect with my aunt in spirit and tell me how she passed (she had passed unexpectedly at home and we didn’t know what had happened). It was a huge relief to finally know!
(P.S. If you purchase a reading through my links, this site earns a commission. But I ONLY recommend these services because I’ve used them myself and would recommend them to my mom.)
I have one friend who is a wonderful psychic tarot reader and LOVES working for an online psychic service.
She chose this route because it allows her to use her gifts without having to worry about paying for office space or finding clients. Plus, she can work while her kids are in school. It works out really well!
Tip: If you are going to work with an online psychic service, I would encourage you to set a budget. AskNow offers inexpensive readings for first time clients. OR you can try a free reading at Oranum and then, if you’re pleased, sign up for a paid reading.
BTW, during the video chat, you can see the psychics, but they can’t see you – so flannel pajamas are okay :)I like Oranum because you can chat with a psychic from anywhere in the world from your phone or computer. You can start out with a free psychic reading to see if you connect with the psychic.
8. Use Caution on Facebook
It’s really easy to slap up a blog or Facebook page these days to sell intuitive services.
When searching for the best psychics online, read about their background and make sure that they have a professional looking website or blog. Personally, if I see a blog with a bunch of weird looking stuff I click my back button ASAP!
I would also recommend avoiding readers with names like “Madame So-and-So.” Fake names like this are usually not a great sign.
If something feels “off,” trust your gut and don’t make an appointment with that person.

9. Use Caution when Using Online “Best” Lists
Yes, there are some extensive best lists out there and they do a great job of weeding out the legitimate readers from the fakes.
Keep in mind though, that the readers listed on these sites often pay hefty monthly fees to be endorsed by that site. This fact is not always made clear to the public.
A friend of mine is an awesome psychic medium and used to be listed as one of the best readers in the country.
And then one day, poof, she was removed from the list because she could no longer pay the hefty monthly fees to be promoted.
I’ve actually had readings with four people from this list. They were all legitimate and ethical, but in my opinion, I have found other best psychic mediums that were phenomenal and less expensive.
Bottom line: Without a doubt, there is a best psychic medium out there for you! Using these tips, you’ll be able to find someone who can help you find the answers you seek and give you some clarity.
