Talented mediums have always attracted followers. But in today’s world of internet readings and TV psychics, there are more famous spiritual mediums than ever.

And that’s a great thing!

You see, it gives us choices. It means that we have the ability to research and contact popular mediums from all around the world.

And this means that we are no longer limited to visiting our local mediums: psychics that operate from our home towns, or that travel with carnivals and fairs.

What Is a Medium?

Before we begin our list of famous mediums, it’s important to clarify what we mean. After all, with lots of different types of psychics offering readings, it’s easy to get confused.

So, what exactly is a medium? Well, put simply, a medium is a person capable of contacting the spirit world.

This may include speaking to spirit guides, angels, and other none human entities. But their most famous gift is the ability to contact the dead.

You see, by channeling the spirits’ of the dead, mediums can help their clients to pass on messages to loved ones. And can deliver wisdom from the other side.

Do you think this sounds impressive? Well, we agree.

In fact, here at CrystalGazer, we believe that the gift of mediumship is one of the most powerful gifts a human can possess.

Are Psychic Mediums Legitimate?

True mediums are amazing. They help us to contact the dead, and provide closure when we need it most.

But not all psychics and mediums are good. In fact, some people are just pretending to have spiritual gifts.

So, how do you tell the difference?

Well, the most important thing you can do is to read reviews and testimonials.

You see, truly great mediums will have lots of happy customers. And happy customers leave positive reviews.

And luckily for us, psychics today tend to have reviews online. In fact, world renowned mediums often have hundreds and thousands of recommendations!

How to Choose a Great Medium

When you decide which medium to use, you should ask more than “who is the best medium?”.

You need to find the best psychic medium for you.

You see, having any form of psychic reading is an intimate process… And this is even more true for medium readings.

So to find a medium who is great for you, consider their personality, as well as their abilities. Go online and read as many profiles as you need to, in order to find someone who feels right. And remember, the most important factor in your reading is that you feel comfortable.

OK, so you’ve found your perfect medium. But, what can you expect from your reading?

What Can I Find Out When I Visit a Medium?

Well, the important thing to remember is that no two medium readings are the same.

Mediums work in different ways. And of course, the spirits that appear will be unique to you.

However, here as some examples of what you might find out:

You might receive advice from a loved one. This could be something to do with your relationship, career, or life goals.

You might hear confirmation that your loved ones are happy on the other side.

And you could discover answers to questions you have about your deceased relatives. E.g. how they died.

So, there we have it! CrystalGazers guide to famous mediums. And a list of services you can contact if your budget doesn’t stretch to Hollywood stars.
