1. Monica the Medium
Monica the Medium is one of the youngest mediums the world has ever seen. According to her website, Monica realized her natural mediumship abilities at the young age of 15.
A humble and sweet soul, Monica uses her gifts to pass along messages from the Other Side, providing comfort to those who have lost loved ones. You can catch Monica Ten-Kate on her television show, “Monica the Medium” on Freeform.
2. Theresa Caputo, The Long Island Medium
Sassy. Heart of gold. Big hair. We must be talking about Theresa Caputo, The Long Island Medium!
Theresa Caputo is a New York born and raised medium and author of the book, There’s More to Life Than This: Healing Messages, Remarkable Stories, and Insight About the Other Side from the Long Island Medium. People love this lady so much, that she had a waiting list two years out before she even became famous!
And now that she is famous, she has almost a million followers on her Facebook page. No wonder she is one of the most famous mediums on earth!
The thing I love about Theresa Caputo, The Long Island Medium – She’s just a regular ole’ New Yorker who loves her family… and just happens to talk to the dead.
3. Chip Coffey
Gifted since birth, Chip Coffey is a psychic medium who was born in New York and has spent much time in front of the camera. In addition to countless television interviews, he has worked with real life ghost hunters on the series Paranormal State.
People (including me!) love Chip Coffey. That’s why he has over 126,000 fans on Facebook!
Favorite things about Chip Coffey:
- He’s straightforward – Chip seems to always say what’s on his mind… and he’s pretty funny! I always enjoy reading his Facebook posts for these reasons.
- He helps kids – on the television series Psychic Kids he’s worked with kids and teens teaching them how to work with, and not fear, their gifts.
- He loves animals – enough said!
4. Allison Dubois, Medium
Allison Dubois is the beautiful medium who was the inspiration for the television show Medium.
In addition to inspiring hit t.v. shows, Allison Dubois has written many books about the afterlife, including Don’t Kiss Them Good-bye.
Medium Allison Dubois has also seen her share of controversy. In 2010, she had a guest appearance in the reality television show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. When the shown aired, she was highly criticized for being drunk and unpleasant to the other guests.
Allison fired back that the show was edited poorly, and that viewers were not able to see everything that transpired between the women. Whatever the case, she’s still one of the best known psychics on earth!
5. Maureen Hancock
Maureen Hancock is quickly becoming one of the most famous mediums in the US. Her ability to communicate with the dead began after a devastating car accident in 1992.
In Maureen’s hometown of Massachusetts, she is known for her great sense of humor. Her accuracy and detail are so amazing that her Postcards from Heaven show sells out almost as soon as tickets are offered!
Here are some things that she has worked on:
- guest appearances on the Ricki Lake Show
- her own book, The Medium Next Door
- many local radio and television spots
- television pilot for ABC media & Ghost Whisperer producers, Psychic in Suburbia.
The other wonderful thing about Maureen Hancock is that she volunteers her time comforting those who are sick. She is the “real deal,” and an all-around amazing person!
6. John Holland
Boston native John Holland makes spirit communication seem like an art form. Just watching the way he delivers his messages, and explains every detail fascinates me.
I remember watching him on the A&E television special Mediums: We See Dead People, and thinking, “Wow!”
In addition to being one of the most famous mediums in the world, John Holland is a best-selling author of several books including Born Knowing, and Power of the Soul.
He’s also a spiritual teacher and shares his expertise helping others learn how to tune into their own intuition.
7. John Edward, Crossing Over
One of the most famous mediums in the world is John Edward (his name is often mistaken for John Edwards – medium).
A New York born and raised psychic medium and best selling author, he conducts his readings with a no-nonsense style.
This famous medium has starred in Crossing Over with John Edward, a television show in which he would give messages from those on the other side to audience members.
His website and books talk about how he was told at a young age that he would be a beacon, using his gifts to teach people worldwide. That prophecy has certainly come true!
8. James Van Praagh
If someone gave me a t-shirt that said “I Heart James Van Praagh,” I would wear it!
James Van Praagh is one of the most famous mediums on earth, and the best-selling author of many books, including Talking to Heaven. He has also produced shows for television.
I first learned of James Van Praagh back in the day when the mini-series about his life, Living with the Dead, aired. Since then, he’s produced the successful series Ghost Whisperer.
He was born in New York (I see a pattern here of famous mediums from New York), and originally intended to become a Catholic priest, when, during prayer at the age of 14, he was called to “find God in the outside world.”
My favorite thing about Jams Van Praagh – His gentle nature, and the fact that he’s brought hope and comfort to countless people all over the world.
9. Michelle Whitedove, America’s #1 Psychic
A super cool lady, Michelle Whitedove proved her genuine psychic abilities on the reality television show America’s Psychic Challenge where she was named America’s #1 Psychic.
The honor is well deserved, because this lady does it all. Her gifts include:
- spirit medium
- psychic detective
- health intuitive
Michelle Whitedove was also featured in the HBO Documentary: No One Dies in Lily Dale. Personally, she was my favorite spiritual medium featured (for those of you who don’t know, The Lily Dale Assembly is a large spiritualist community in upstate New York).
10. Lisa Williams, Medium
Lisa Williams is a gifted English medium, and one of the best known psychics worldwide. She became famous with her popular television shows Life Among the Dead, and Voices from the Other Side.
Lisa’s website states that she has seen spirits since she was a young child, and that her grandmother was also a medium. She also talks about how she never sought out do to readings for people, but word of mouth about her abilities spread like wildfire. I guess you could say it was meant to be!
Lisa Williams is a medium that is a joy to watch. She currently hosts her own radio program, The Lisa Williams Show, and offers spiritual development classes.
