7 Famous Mediums And
The Magic They Bring To The World

Ian Parkin is the verified author of this post.

These world famous mediums have the magical abilities to dialogue with spirits who have crossed over to the other side. In their own way, each has proven to be a ‘go-between’ with their client and the spirit who is trying to contact that person.

What's the difference between a psychic and a medium?

It is important to understand the difference between psychic mediumship and psychic fortune telling. A psychic reader is a person with extrasensory perceptions such as telepathy and clairvoyance and is able to give an insight into the course of the future by tuning in on a material level. A psychic does not have the ability to give verifiable information from the spirit world - except by the occasional accident. The work of a medium is to prove that the human personality survives after death. This can be a great help for the bereaved in coming to terms with their loss.

Who Are These World Famous Mediums?

In the psychic community, mediumship is the most feared and least understood. That’s because psychic phenomena can’t be approached through intellect. Even in today’s enlightened society, skeptics analyze mediums as sitting in a dark room, watching tables rise from the floor, accompanied by woo-woo sounds.

Evidential mediumship is a spiritual gift. Most mediums are born with genetic psychic abilities like clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience. This gift ‘awakens’ in some as small children, for others an awakening can happen at any later stage of life.

The gift of mediumship grants the psychic permission and (seemingly magical) abilities to dialogue with spirits who have crossed over to the other side. The practicing medium acts as a ‘middleman’ between their client and the spirit who is trying to contact that person.

Who are the most famous mediums in the world?

Without doubt, the most famous mediums in the world today would include Suzanne Giesemann,  Theresa Caputo, Lisa Williams, James Van Praagh, John Edward, Allison Dubois, and Michelle Whitedove. 

  • Suzanne Giesemann came into her gift of mediumship later in life, after the sudden and tragic death of her stepdaughter and the unborn child she was carrying. Suzanne is a former U.S. Navy Commander and the author of many books. Her evidence-based approach to mediumship has been tested and verified by highly credible afterlife researchers and organizations.

  • Theresa Caputo says, ‘Spirit speaks another language, at another speed and in another dimension.’ You may have seen Theresa in Long Island Medium, a TV series. She also performs a live show, ‘Theresa Caputo. Life! The Experience.’

  • Lisa Williams, a UK psychic medium, starred in two TV shows, Voices from the Other Side and Life Among the Dead. She is famous for saying, ‘Do you want to know everything?’ Her motto is ‘bridging the gap from this world to the next’.

  • James Van Praagh is a pioneer in the psychic mediumship community. Not only has he earned kudos by enlightening conventional people about the difference between mediums and psychics, he has empowered the credibility of mediums in general. His debut book, Talking to Heaven introduced pride of profession in a field that is notoriously maligned. 

  • John Edward is a world renowned psychic medium. You have likely watched his live televised program, Crossing Over with John Edwards, where he connects with the dearly departed and delivers their messages to appropriate members of the audience. 

  • Allison Dubois inspired the TV series Medium. Her mission is to ‘break old stereotypes that put a negative spin on people with mediumship abilities’. Her aim is to help people achieve closure when loved ones have crossed over.

  • Michelle Whitedove won the coveted crown on the first America’s Physic Challenge and earned the title America’s #1 Psychic. You may have seen a sample of Michelle’s psychic gifts in the documentary, No One Dies in Lily Dale. Her passion is using her mediumship skills as a medical intuitive and psychic detective.

The life of mediumship has chosen all seven of these world famous mediums in unique ways. They did not choose this celebrity life. Practicing mediumship doesn’t come easy, yet these mediums have transformed countless lives of the grieving or those standing at a crossroad, not knowing which way to go. And thankfully, these famous mediums continue to blaze new trails that transcend the mediumship stigma.
