Psychic readings online. The other day, I got an email from a woman thanking me for writing my blog. She said:
Thank you for your blog and the “normal” way you explain everything.
I’ve always been embarrassed to tell people that I go to psychics, but I don’t feel so weird anymore!
Reading that email made my heart all happy and I actually cried. I think a tear might have even dripped into my morning coffee cup.
The point is: technology and stuff is awesome (believe me, my phone is never too far away for me to Google the latest decorating trends), but so is psychic guidance.

Getting readings doesn’t make you a weirdo. And that is the point of this post.
Actually, I think readings are helpful and means you’re open minded. It’s better than staying stuck and not asking for help, right?
On my sister site, I’ve helped intuitive people come out of the psychic closet – and when that woman emailed me, I realized that people who GET readings can feel kinda funny, too.
I wanted to talk about why people get psychic readings online to begin with. As you’ll see, it’s not so weird!
Getting Psychic Readings Online
There are a lot of reasons why people get psychic readings online.
First, there’s the obvious reasons like convenience.
I mean, if you can get a reading in your jammies, why not?
Or, maybe you don’t have any intuitive readers in your area, or you work all day and can only get a reading at night.
But enough with the fluff, let’s get to the good stuff…
Sometimes, folks seek psychic guidance because they feel stuck and don’t know where else to turn. They feel like the material world isn’t “getting” them and that there must be another way to get answers. So they have a reading (which is a great tool as long as you don’t get addicted to them).
My first online psychic reading
I had my first online psychic reading back in 2014. I remember the day vividly. It was a hot Wednesday afternoon and I was utterly miserable.
My daughter was in the hospital and I was exhausted. I felt totally detached from my Higher Self (who usually guides me like a super GPS!) and unable to make any decisions.
I had had readings before, but never online. Like the woman who emailed me, I was embarrassed, but I don’t know why.
Wait a minute, yes I do…
It was because psychic chat sites have gotten a pretty bad rap.
The reading was soooo helpful!
The thing you need to know here is that I used to be a psychic “snob” thinking that all online readings were scams…
That was until I met my friend Sue, a super ethical tarot reader who told me that she likes working online because she can give readings from home while her kids are in school (and never has to worry about renting office space!).
Did the reading solve all of my problems? No, but I did feel more clarity.
Though still exhausted, I felt like I could see my path and purpose clearer, you know what I mean?
Mostly, I felt like the guidance I got that day helped me to make decisions while I was in the midst of exhaustion.
It was a tool. A stepping stone.
Of course, when you have psychic readings online, you won’t resonate with every reader.
To put it in context:
It’s like going to the mall. You walk by Hot Topic and think, ew! Then, you get to Macy’s and you KNOW they totally get your style!
That’s why I think it’s best to take your time find someone you really “click” with. Oranum is wonderful for this because you get to see all of the psychics LIVE before entering into a reading.
It’s just an absolutely wonderful set-up they have that completely helps build trust. I adore Oranum!
Why do People Get Psychic Guidance
To find their purpose. Psychic guidance is helpful when people feel like, Why am I here? Is it really just to fold laundry and cook 24/7?!
For these folks, a reading (with a good psychic, of course!) may lead to some inspired thoughts!
To get relationship guidance. I’ve talked to one online psychic who said the number one reason people contact her is to get relationship guidance.
In a reading like this, it can be helpful to ask:
- Why you and your partner aren’t connecting
- Is there anything I can do to reconnect with my partner?
This can be more insightful than asking something like, Is my relationship going to work? Skip the predictions and go for the deep stuff. It’s much more helpful.
To connect with a loved one in heaven. Even though people intuitively know that their loved ones are no longer suffering, it’s comforting to hear it from a psychic medium. Hearing a message from a medium is a healing experience for many people.
No matter what your reason is for getting psychic readings online, rest assured, your not a wacky weirdo. :)
