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!
Guys, reading her email made my heart so happy that I actually cried. I happy cried. A little tear might have even dripped into my morning coffee cup — a little extra sodium never hurt anyone, right?
You know what I believe with all my heart?

No one should feel weird or embarrassed about doing something to better themselves. Period.
Getting psychic readings online does not mean you’re a weirdo.
It’s actually a sign that you’re open minded and willing to ask for help. And that’s never a bad thing.
And yet, there is such a stigma around getting psychic readings.
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.
The kicker is: just as some people were getting used to the idea of psychics and getting psychic readings, online psychic readings came out.
And truthfully, I used to be a psychic “snob” thinking that all online readings were scams…
That is until I met my friend Sue, a super ethical tarot reader who told me that she likes working online for Oranum because she can give readings from home while her kids are in school.
So if you find yourself feeling like my lovely reader at the beginning of this post, settle in. We’re going to have a nice chat about psychic readings online.
Why do People Get 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 there are no intuitive readers in your area, or you work all day and can only get a reading at night.
Whatever the reason, online readings are now a viable and legitimate option.
My first online psychic reading
I had my first online psychic reading in 2014. I remember the day vividly — because I was utterly miserable.
It was a hot Wednesday afternoon, 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 received TONS of 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 bad rap.
I connected with a tarot reader named Maria and she was soooo helpful!
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 that helped get me through the rough patch.
Of course, when you have psychic readings online, you won’t resonate with every reader.
It’s kinda 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! (P.S. have you seen those little pom-pom phone cases they have out now?! Adorable).
All that to say… 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 the next best thing to having a reading in person and the way they are set up completely helps build trust. I adore Oranum!
Why do People Get Psychic Guidance?
Lots of reasons! :)
1. Feeling stuck or misunderstood
Sometimes, folks seek psychic guidance because they feel stuck (like I did) 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).
2. Want to know their life purpose
Or maybe they are trying to find their purpose. 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!
3. To get relationship guidance
I’ve talked to one online psychic reader who said the number one reason people contact her is to get relationship guidance. I’m not surprised – are you? Relationships can be downright tough!
In a reading like this, it can be helpful to ask things like:
- 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.
4. 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, you’re not a wacky weirdo.
You are someone who recognizes the immense power of technology and uses it to your advantage! You are ahead of the crowd.
And honestly – you rock.
