Spiritual psychic readings can be like having a GPS into your soul!
I’ll never forget one of the pivotal times I reached out to a psychic. It was just after my daughter was born, and I was at a MAJOR crossroads.
I was tossing and turning at night wondering, “should I pursue my calling (mediumship)? Or, should I take the more conventional path that would be safe, secure, and make my family happy?”.
In my heart, I knew what I wanted to do (follow my mediumship calling), but I needed validation that I wasn’t crazy! I wanted affirmation that being a psychic medium was my soul’s purpose. (Obviously it was or this blog wouldn’t exist :)
Spiritual psychic readings are amazing for peeling back the layers and looking at your soul’s truths.
They lead to “I KNEW IT” moments and empower people to step up and seize their purpose.

You know how when you’re telling a friend a story, and they’re nodding along, you feel encouraged to keep going? That’s how it is with spiritual psychic readings. It’s like a little nod of insight that resonates in your soul :)
So, let’s dig in and get the full lowdown on everything you need to know about spiritual psychic readings, including:
- EXACTLY what they are
- Signs you’re ready for a psychic reading
- How to tell if a psychic is real
- Where to get the best spiritual psychic readings
What are Spiritual Psychic Readings?
Spiritual psychic readings can also be called “intuitive psychic readings”. They’re the kind of reading where you leave with a clearer picture of yourself, your life, or your situation.
It’s also not uncommon to become emotional or find yourself saying, “OMG YES!! I knew it!” during a spiritual reading.
The goal of a spiritual psychic reading is to empower you.
You know that saying “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime”? That’s kinda how I view spiritual psychic readings….
Spiritual psychic readings tend to be deeper and uncover truths about yourself and your soul as a whole.
For example, they can help you understand why none of the 4 jobs you’ve had in the last year have felt right – and help you know on a soul level what you’re really meant to to. That kind of knowledge can be applied again and again to all kinds of situations. Very empowering!
We’re going to dig deeper into spiritual psychic readings in a moment, but first, I want to quickly cover the other types of psychic readings so you can see the differences.
Tip: While this post is tailored towards spiritual (intuitive) readings, the advice can apply to any type of reading, including tarot or mediumship readings!
Other Types of Psychic Readings
Prediction/Fortune Telling Readings
You may already know my stance on prediction readings… they’re usually not my cuppa tea. These are the kind of readings most people think of when they picture a psychic. In a fortune telling reading, a psychic looks into your future, and tells you specifics about it (i.e. how many kids you’ll have or if you’ll ever get to meet Brad Pitt). The trouble with this kind of reading is that free will exists. In other words…
We all have the ability to choose our path, so we can unknowingly (or knowingly) deviate from the path our prediction reading came from. Prediction readings are only accurate IF you stay on the same path as the day of your reading. If you decide to switch it up, the prediction may not come true.
From my experience, fortune telling readings tend to be the least empowering.
Mediumship readings are when a psychic medium connects you with a loved one in Spirit. Psychic mediums can relay all sorts of heartwarming and humorous messages from Spirit to bring you hope, comfort, and prove the continuity of life.
While a lot of psychics are doubted, it seems like mediums are doubted the most. Famous TV psychic mediums like Theresa Caputo can make some wonder if it’s all just a big smoke and mirror show. I assure you, it’s not. Legitimate psychic mediums exist, and are just “regular” people next door… who happen to talk to dead people. :)
Tarot Card Readings
Have you ever seen a reading where the psychic was flipping around gorgeous colored cards? Those are tarot cards, and they’re used as a tool to give you an empowering and clarity-yielding reading!
While tarot cards can be used in prediction readings, they can also be used in spiritual or intuitive readings.
The psychic you choose plays a big role in how useful tarot cards will be for you. So as with any reading, take time to be sure you connect with your psychic. (For mistakes to avoid when having a tarot card reading, see this post.)
OK friends, now that we’ve covered what spiritual psychic readings are, let’s talk about when you should get one.
8 Signs You’re Ready for a Spiritual Psychic Reading
You may be ready for a spiritual psychic reading if you resonate with any of the following:
- Feel stuck and just want to be happy (spiritual psychic readings are like “Pam” for your life goals!)
- Want affirmation that you’re on the right path
- Feel at your wits end with a situation
- Are on the hunt for an “Aha” moment
- Want guidance from your Spiritual team (spirit guides, etc.)
- Aren’t sure what certain signs from the Universe are telling you
- Are at a crossroads
- Find yourself pondering the “big questions” (like, why am I here? what’s my purpose?)
Here’s the really cool thing… spiritual psychic readings usually can’t be impacted by your life path. For example:
If you walk into a fortune telling reading while you’re in medical school, the psychic will probably pick up that you’re going to be a doctor. BUT… the next day you could sign your withdrawal forms and head to the Bahamas to sell homemade hats! (I watch HGTV, it could happen :)
In a spiritual psychic reading, you may learn that you were MEANT to help and heal people (which you always suspected). That means you may be a doctor, or you may help and heal in some completely other way.
That’s how spiritual psychic readings can provide an understanding that other readings do not.
How to Tell if a Psychic is Real
With all my heart, I wish I could say that you can trust everyone out there, but you gotta be careful. (In a minute I’ll give you some resources that I’ve personally used to get some great spiritual psychic readings, but this section is important to read first.)
So once you decide to get a spiritual psychic reading, here’s how to tell if you’re chatting with a true psychic, or just someone someone looking to make a quick buck…
Take note of your intuition.
This is by far the easiest and most overlooked way to tell if your psychic is the real thing. People can think things like, “maybe I’m just nervous” or “I’m sure that’s normal” through all kinds of oddball situations, BUT, if your gut is telling you something is off IT PROBABLY IS. We all have intuition, so trust what you feel.
Tip: A telltale sign of a true psychic is that you feel totally at ease. A genuine lightworker will never make you feel uncomfortable.
Notice if you feel validated/resonated with.
I started giving readings about 18 years ago, and if I had a nickel for every time I heard, “I KNEW IT!”, I would have retired 17 years ago! More often than not, spiritual psychic readings lead to major validation. They’re how our spiritual team says, “Yes, you’re on the right track!” or, “No, don’t trust that person!”
If you don’t have an “I KNEW IT!” outburst, you may hear something that resonates deeply with you.
Watch for “Aha” moments.
Hopefully you went into your reading with some sort of intention (you want an answer, peace, etc.). So don’t be surprised if, after you ask your million dollar question, you say something like, “OMG… DUH!”. It may seem like the answer was RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU, or that you already had the tools to solve your situation.
Tip: Real spiritual psychic readings are about peace and love. They will NEVER reveal things that make you feel yucky.
Be aware of common scams.
This goes for any kind of reading, including tarot and mediumship. Watch for super generic answers (like, “Oh, I see a pet in your future!”) or obvious blunders (like, “I see your soulmate coming soon!” when you’ve been married 15 years), or being told you are cursed. (Full list of psychic scams here.)
Where to Get the Best Spiritual Psychic Readings
Of course, all the tips in the world won’t help if you get your spiritual reading at DiscountPsychics.com (not a real place – but you catch my drift). When you’re ready, you want to find a cream of the crop psychic.
Here are my go-to places and tips for where I’ve consistently found amazing psychics: (Even though I give readings, I also love getting them!)
If possible, get referrals from family and friends who have had spiritual psychic readings. Before I started teaching psychic development and blogging full time, my psychic reading clients all came to me via word of mouth (I had a 6-month out wait list, which is the power of word of mouth). Ask around to find out what intuitive readers are the best in your area.
2. Metaphysical Stores
If you have a new age store in your area, stop in and get a feel for the place. Do you like the vibe? Do you feel uplifted in this place? If so, ask employees which psychics they recommend. Be sure to tell them you are looking for a deep, spiritual psychic reading, not just a prediction reading. That way, they can recommend you to someone who fits your needs.
Yes, I intentionally put a strikethrough through internet search. While it seems easy to Google “psychics near me”, I definitely don’t recommend it. Why? Because there isn’t much of a way to vet these psychics. And, since spiritual psychic readings are such intimate and often emotional experiences, you really don’t want to take a chance (ask me how I know this!).
Instead, I’d rather see people use a long-standing and reputable psychic network where you can read all about the psychics, what types of readings they give, and read reviews (sometimes thousands!).
I’ve tried all of the major psychic networks and these are the two I trust the most:
One of my favorite places to get spiritual psychic readings is Oranum. In fact, a reading with one of their psychics that LITERALLY saved my blog! (So they kind of hold a special place in my heart.)
It was one of those “cross-road moments” where I felt completely lost, ready to give up, paddle to the Bahamas, and sell homemade hats!
Best things about Oranum:
- Variety of readings. You can get a spiritual psychic reading, a tarot reading, or even an astrology reading (OMG sooooo much fun!).
- Live video chat. Yep, we’re talking live stream. You get to see AND hear all of the psychics LIVE from your computer, tablet, or MOBILE device! The transparency of this format is unique to Oranum and makes it easy to find a psychic you resonate with. (Don’t worry, they won’t be able to see you.)
- Fun to choose a psychic. Since the psychics live stream when they are not giving a private reading, it’s a LOT of fun to click around and listen to them. (If the thought of selecting a psychic overwhelms you, Oranum will connect you with a random psychic at first – you can decide to move forward with the psychic or not. No stress!)
- $9.95 in FREE reading credits for new customers!
After testing a whole lotta spiritual psychic readers myself, I’m totally digging the psychics at AskNow. I had a great experience with one of their readers who connected with my aunt and spirit and helped me get some life path insight! Several of my friends tried out the network as well, and they were all pleased, too!
The best things about AskNow:
- They test all of their psychics… so you don’t have to! (Of course, you should always take responsible steps, but these psychics have been vetted and approved by the network.)
- Satisfaction guarantee. When I learned that AskNow is committed to customer satisfaction I knew I wanted them on this list! If, for any reason, you feel your first psychic is not a good match, end your reading within 5 minutes and they’ll credit your account.
- Phone readings in US and Canada. If you’re someone who prefers a good ol’ phone chat over an online convo, this is your spot! You can call (855)-692-4888 24/7 and get connected with a gifted psychic ready to empower your socks off. (For Spanish, (855) 761-6677)
- Web chat. If you’re a little shy about talking to a psychic over the phone, AskNow also offers web chat readings. There is no live stream like on Oranum, but this is still a good option for a lot of people.
- Inexpensive. First time customers can get a 15-minute reading for only $10!
Spiritual Psychic Readings Tips
1. After you’ve decided where to get your psychic reading, make sure to hold your intention in your heart.
It can be easy to get caught up in the process of finding the right psychic and lose sight of your ultimate goal (gaining clarity, an answer, etc.) Write your intention down prior to connecting with your psychic (and keep that notepad handy for notes).
2. Write down your questions before spiritual psychic readings.
A part of the knock-your-socks-off-good reading pie is the questions you ask. For example, if you’re feeling a lot of tension about your job, you can ask something like, “What kinds of jobs will make me happy?” or “What personal qualities am I meant to be using in my career?”.
These open ended questions allow energy to flow and prompt you to dig in and get to the ROOT of the issue. For more on questions, read the post, Best Questions to Ask a Psychic.
3. Learn from my mistake!
Remember that psychics are humans too! I set myself up for failure when I reached out to a big name psychic and waited a YEAR to speak with her. When the moment finally came, I was nearly crushed by the anti-climatic reading.
The moral: Don’t ever rely on a psychic to make a move for you or tell you what to do. Rather, use them as a guide to help you feel empowered, happy, and confident in your own decision making.
That’s about all I have for you today friends. I hope you go on to enjoy many spiritual psychic readings!
