2. Esther Hicks (aka Abraham-Hicks)
Born: March 5, 1948
Astrology Sign: Pisces
You may be surprised to find Esther Hicks on our list of best known psychics in the world. However, if you are familiar with The Secret and the teachings of the ”Law of Attraction”, you will most definitely have heard about the very gifted psychic Esther Hicks. Esther Hicks appeared on the original film The Secret, and even if she has not made many TV appearances, she is still one of the most famous psychics in the world. She has written many best-sellers and has toured around the U.S. for years now. Her workshops are extremely sought after. If you search ”Abraham-Hicks” on YouTube, you will find hundreds of thousands of clips of her teachings. ”Abraham-Hicks” is the name that Esther Hicks uses to describe ”the group of consciousness from the non-physical dimension” – that she channels to spread the teachings about the ”Law of Attraction” (that says: ”like attracts like”).
So who is this gifted psychic? Well, Esther Hicks was born in a small town in the Rocky Mountains, USA. She was never interested in anything supernatural growing up. She was just a happy kid, enjoying life. It wasn’t until she married her second husband – Jerry Hicks – that she became interested in the “supernatural”. One day, Esther and Jerry Hicks went to see the famous psychic Jane Roberts. Esther Hicks had heard of ”spiritual guides” and asked Jane Roberts if she could name her spiritual guide/s. Jane Roberts responded that Esther Hicks would be able to answer this question herself, because she would soon develop her psychic abilities. Esther Hicks was a person ”who never really thought about things too deeply” but she took Jane Roberts’ advice and started meditating. She loved the feeling of meditation and continued meditating everyday for 9 months. Then one day, Esther Hicks came to know her ”spiritual guides” – which came to be ”Abraham-Hicks”. Esther Hicks has later explained that anyone is able to connect with ”Abraham” – whenever we feel pure joy, ecstasy, love, bliss etc. – that’s when we are connecting with the energy of Source – and that is who ”Abraham” is.

Can you give a list of the most famous female psychics still working today?

Even if they are not seen on TV very often, you will definitely find them on the internet, YouTube, social media, and in any local bookshop around the world. These women have written many best sellers over the years, and are without a doubt the best known psychics in the world today!
Who are on the top 5 list of famous male psychics?
That would probably be John Edward, James Van Praagh, John Holland, Tyler Henry, and Matt Fraser. These guys have made several appearances on TV and are well known around the world.
John Edward is best known for his TV shows Crossing Over with John Edward and John Edward Cross Country. The best selling author James Van Praagh is world famous for the very successful television series Living with the Dead and Ghost Whisperer.

And finally, Matt Fraser, the renowned psychic who has been featured in Fox News Providence, NBC Morning News, CBS Radio, ABC Chronicle, and Better Connecticut.
Would you say that the famous psychic people on TV are for real?
That’s very hard to say without testing their psychic ability. Some are legit, and some are not. Many famous TV psychics are often accused of being fake. The reason for this has to do with money. The psychics become incredibly rich if their TV shows are a hit. Also, it’s hard to say how accurate psychics really are, since the TV producers can edit and cut out the things they don’t want viewers to see.
Also, no psychic is 100% accurate. But, when a famous psychic makes a prediction that doesn’t come true, it’s big news.
Can you name a few famous fake psychics?
If you search on the internet for “famous fake psychics”, you will see that the name Sylvia Browne comes up. Sylvia Browne was a very well known psychic who made many appearances on TV when she was alive. She gave readings and made predictions regularly, and when it came out that some of her predictions that were caught on film were inaccurate, this became big news and made a lot of headlines. You can find clips of her “fake readings” on YouTube and read about it on Wikipedia.
So was she real or fake? As mentioned, no psychic is ever 100% accurate. Perhaps the media gave more attention to her failures than to her successful predictions. To be sure whether or not she was the real deal, one must weigh the failures against the rate of her success.
Are the best psychics in the world the most famous?
No, and this probably has to do with the fact that many gifted psychics are very sensitive. Being in the public eye requires a lot of traveling, staying at hotels, visiting public places etc. Psychics are usually very sensitive and may get information about people and places all the time – so going on tours and being in the public eye all of the time, can be a bit difficult.
The gifted psychic medium Doreen Virtue has talked about the issue of being a famous psychic. She used to travel around the word for many years, but as she developed her sensitivity and spent more time on “the higher frequencies”, it became challenging for her to be on planes, airports, and other public spaces. Today, she prefers to connect with her fans via the internet and social media.
