Are psychic mediums real or are they just good at guessing?

I recently went to a psychic medium angel healer and at the time i thought she was pretty good. However, now i think she could have possible been “cold reading” and i just wondered if there’s anyone who is living with psychic powers and how they work?

  • I am going to start an in depth investigation into psychics/mediums to see what is real. This will include the views of many different religious practices and beliefs. I believe if there is validity to mediums and/or psychics, they will be willing to participate in my study. I will keep everyone informed and will develop a blog just for the progression of my study. If anyone has any information or leads they would like me to look in to, please let me know. I am willing to travel where ever is needed to gather as much information as possible. I will keep all of my studies totally unbiased and based only on fact so you can come to your own conclusions. I have a strong faith in God but I also believe in science, so I have always been conflicted. I am on the search for something beyond what we can believe or understand. We know in general knowledge that energy never dies, so I want to find where that goes. Does energy go only toward the decomposition process or does it continue in a means that we don’t know? I think it’s worth the time to look into. Tell me what you think.

  • Surely if you go to a spiritualist church and sit in the audience and they have a message for you that reads true,how can that be fake? You have never spoke to this person before.

  • Mediums are born not made,being psychic is different from mediumship. Mediums are. Ideologically different. through the pineal gland and hormonal system.just say yes.or no to statements. It is not easy to be a. medium

  • Be very skeptical if you have a session with a psychic medium. Do not tell them anything about yourself or provide information. It is really important to always test the spirit world and test the medium. See what comes through and don’t throw out your God given intelligence and believe whatever you are told just because someone claims to be a psychic or a medium. I have been involved in studying and working with mediumship for over 30 years and I can tell you that it is possible to receive accurate communications from deceased loved ones and others in the spirit world. Good mediumship requires training in the mechanics of the process and one must be ethical and sincere in wanting to help others. Mediumship is pretty easy to learn as we are all psychic and with the right training and in the proper educational environment, like artistic or musical abilities, mediumistic skills may be cultivated. But always be skeptical and distinguish your own imagination from genuine psychic impressions. A good teacher can help the student medium with this. I have worked with so many people over the years and I can honestly say that it is such a blessing to have the opportunity to convey communications from the people in the spirit world to recipients here. God bless you and lots of love and spiritual light to you.

  • I attended a new age festival not too long ago and decided to try out two psychics; netiher woman spoke with each other but told me the EXACT same things–one more detailed at some and the other more detailed in other areas but they both basically painted me the SAME picture. Now, if psychics aren’t real, what are the odds two people hit on the exact same things statistically by guessing or cold reading so to speak. Yes psychics are real but they don’t broadcast their abilities many times.

  • GET REAL – Of course they are fake, hae some intelligence to know that there is nothing out there, there is no such things as ghosts or people on the other side bringing messages through a medium, as there is no other side. What upsets me, is these so called mediums sometimes use Spiritualist church to exploit the feelings of the bereaved, call themselves christians??? is it evil

    • For a start there are none Christian spiritual churches and Christian ones I was not sure if these people where praying on vulnerable people till my own duster stood up and gave a reading to some one mystery descibed objects that where hidden away agT they where placed in down to the colour of the box they were placed in so yes I now believe and she brought so much joy to that person she gave a message to

  • i went to see a medium a few weeks back and was totally gobsmacked, she told me things about my past that no one would never in a million years have guessed. However the present i am not so sure as what she said hasnt happened yet, i know its still early days :) All i had to tell her was my name and to answer yes or no honestly and if i wasnt sure to let her know.
    I would like to try another medium out for curiosty if anyone knows a good one please let me know :)

    • I had a reading done by a medium who was referred by my nephew it was his cousin, She does not charge and only asked my name and did not want any information other than my name, She was spot on with events and information regarding those I have lost,

      • Hi I am looking for a medium and was wondering where you went to get yours done, especially if she didn’t charge because the places I am looking act cost around $200.

        Thank you !

      • Mike – I am trying to decide if mediums are fake or real…so far no one I paid to see impressed me. Do you have contact info for one you saw?

  • We can all guess, this is waht i am doing anyway. whether there is psychics or not…. sometimes you need a convenient way to vent, and your firiends are tired of listening or you feel they are… its nice to visit with someone who seems to care. they make good counselors…

  • Yes they’re are real psychics out there, I went to one the other day and all she asked was for my name and age. She put her fingers on mine and just started going away Literally Everythjng she told me about my past was 100% accurate , I was honestly lost for words how she knew all about my past with only my age and name and putting her fingers on mine. And she knew my heart and head chakra were out of balance with each other. I didn’t speak after I gave her my name and age. she didn’t ask questions or anything it was incredible.

  • psychic are not to be trusted because they are from satan no God. it says in the bible not to fool around with witchcraft. the devil knows all about you just like God does and he will use people who are willing to let him use them to fool you. also the ghosts people say they see are demons protraying their loved ones. once you die you go to your eternal destiny be it heaven or hell if you love God and your name is in the book of life you will be with him forever. if you don’t follow Jesus then the alternative is hell but, no one comes back and walks around on earth. read the bible it will back up everthing I am saying. I am not a religous fanatic I just want people to trust God for their future not mediums.

    • Becky, you are very ignorant. Just because one is psychic does not mean they are linked to Satan. Being a medium may in fact be a gift from God. If you are truly a spiritual person, pray to go to be more open-minded, and open-hearted. No human knows it all. Are you God?

  • I have found it really easy to spot a fake psychic medium……………
    They open there mouth and cobblers come out……..
    You cannot speak to the dead, because they are DEAD (big clue)

  • Yes, psychic mediums are real and the messages they give from the realms of Spirit are real. Many, like Connect with Spirit…, earn their living by giving accurate readings and mediumship channelings from deceased loved ones.

    How does the psychic mind really work? How is it different from your own mind? Wait… Why can’t you paint like Michaelangelo, make music like Mozart, or invent like Leonardo DaVinci? What makes humans really different in their abilities? Who knows? But I can tell you this … everyone has psychic ability … everyone gets “messages” (hunches, intuitions, dreams, feelings) about whether they should or should not do things. Everybody. The truth is … When we don’t listen to that internal voice or feeling, don’t we get angry at ourselves for knowing we should have listened? And, everyone has good and bad days, even psychics. Instead of being fearful of being taken in by someone less clear, why not choose someone who has a good reputation, and dozens of testimonials to prove it, and let the information be your convincer of are they “real” or not? If the clairvoyant psychic medium gave you information that ONLY YOU and Spirit could know… then they are real. ‘Nuff said.

    Then again, we just might be “guessing.” And, if we were… we would be among the famous psychic medium channelers like Edgar Cayce, Sylvia Browne, Gordon Smith, James Van Praagh, John Edward, Sonia Choquette, Esther Hicks, and many, many others. Not a bad crowd to be in.

  • You cannot know unless you get them referred by your family, or friends. Alternatively, you can also check online for reviews by people who have used a psychic. Sometime, you may go through couple of psychics before you found a matching one.

  • haha,
    good old question
    yer they are real. But yer dont panic because of this one reading. She could of just been having an off day. Generally causes the reduced ability.
    but yes they are very much real. even modern science is proving the psychics are real.
    Anyways psychic powers is basically, just another sense. Everyone has these abilities, just requires practice in order to bring them out. Someone who has complete control over themselves, and is able to bring this psychic abilities. The way the do this is generally concentrating on getting into the a state of mind, or deep relaxation, in which they become sensitive the energies around them.
    When you trying to predict something, the most accurate answer comes from the feeling when you just know. u dont know how you know, but you know.

    anyways if you want me to go over it in more detail, just shoot me an email, and i can help you out πŸ˜‰

  • There are some true psychic’s around. I have a friend who even works with police to help find missing people, and occasionally to murderers. She actually quite well known for doing this.

    • WOW! I know about these phycics helping the Police. I just happened to find a half hour show weekly about them. I look forward to watching this show weekly. Thank God for these REAL good phycics. There should be more (info) shows about these REAL Phycics, theres not enough out there about them.

  • There are no real psychic mediums, they are all fakes, and what they do is only listen to you and guess what you have told them, and they make up the stuff as they go a long, you provide them with your Information, and they use it to their advantage.They rake your money, for what you have told them., Do not be silly and wast your money to people who tell the future or any mediums, cause there is nobody who can tell you what is going to happen, your information give them the knowledge about your self, and only that can give a guess of what your future could be like.

    • There are real Psychics who have helped law enforcement solved some cases in the past, and there are psychics who helped people and there was one in Europe who won the Lottery. And you say that all are fake is not going to get it all nailed down. If all Psychics are faked, then all Attorneys are faked too. You need to know the different between real Psychics and faked Psychics. Psychics does not mean a fake since it”s not what the definition of the word “Psychic” is. You need to look it up in the dictionary. I can only bet that you are close minded on these thing because you must be an Atheist who cannot believe in those things.

    • So what would you say about my medium who does not charge one red cent for readings done, Who does not ask me questions by merely tells me what a spirit or loved ones messages are to me, And my medium insisted I tell her nothing whats so ever about me,

  • There ARE Many “Real Psychics” around, some earn a living from it but most are very quiet about what they can do. You can always tell a “Fake” Psychic quite easily. …. Go & have another reading done. ALL Psychics, the real & the fake will ask you questions. That is normal. The difference is, the Fakes depend upon what YOU Say to give their reading. No Response & “ohhh, the spirits are fading” or some such malarky to goad You inti Giving the appropriate answers! If you deliberately give False Answers, they will give a reading on them, then when you tell them that you lied, they will come up with some story to cover their mistakes. Usually something like.”Yes, the otherworld told me you spoke falsely. I wanted to tell you what Would happen, but they(the “so called Guides”) told me you need to learn a lesson & telling you would teach you nothing & so on.” Anything to cover their own RRRs! …… If on the other hand you say at the very beginning,(politely), “I am not going to answer any questions or say anything, I just want to hear your reading.” & then you sit back & let them give you a reading,, AND When it’s about 95% Accurate or more,, Then you know that you have been ‘read’ by a Real Psychic! Oh, one more thing,,,, Psychic reading over the phone or ANY Electronic means IS IMPOSSIBLE! ALL Who do that ARE Fakes!

    • I do feel a reading over the phone while eating or yelling at ones kid is inapropriate and that hs been my experience twice I have no faith or trust in these websites. Thank you

  • They are very good at judging and reading people. The have experience in taking cues from you and then telling you what you are concerned about.
    Psychic powers have not been scientifically proven to be real so don’t believe in it too much or you will lose all your money to them!

    • Thank you Perry that was very helpful. In fact I feel that I have wasted alot of money in the hope of understanding and getting answers.

      • For a start there are none Christian spiritual churches and Christian ones I was not sure if these people where praying on vulnerable people till my own duster stood up and gave a reading to some one mystery descibed objects that where hidden away agT they where placed in down to the colour of the box they were placed in so yes I now believe and she brought so much joy to that person she gave a message to

  • There are a lot of fake psychics out there, but there are some real ones too. My mum is psychic and she knew stuff she couldn’t possibly have otherwise known. There was a thing on tv a while ago where a psychic met someone on a different show who never told anyone that he was going to get his show moved to a different channel and she knew, even though only that guy and the managers of the two channels involved knew, and she didn’t even know who she was going to meet till she got there. If the psychic you went to asked a lot of questions like ‘name starting with B? E? G? K?’ then they were fake. But if they said stuff straight away that they shouldn’t have known, then they’re real. I hope I helped :)

    • Thank you, Your response was very helpful. I asked because I
      have wasted alot of money online getting the same feedback or contradictory and as I believe everyone is entitled to make a living what ever way they can I feel that a “psychic” should not put an exorbinant charge for what they call a reading. That has been my experience and if there were a way that one can prove they are ” psychic” then I believe people would be more apt to believe. Thank you again….
