Most Famous Psychics and Mediums in the World

1. Sylvia Celeste Browne was an American author and a psychic and spiritual medium. She appeared regularly on television and radio, including the shows The Montel Williams Show and Larry King Live, and hosted an hour-long Internet radio show on Hay House Radio. She was the subject of frequent criticism for making psychic predictions that were later proven false, including predictions related to missing persons such as Shawn Hornbeck and Amanda Berry.


2. Linda and Terry Jamison – The Psychic TwinsLinda and Terry Jamison (born January 12, 1965) are American identical twins based in Los Angeles, California who perform as psychics. The Jamisons predictions have been featured in tabloid newspapers, and they have appeared in various media. They claim to have channeled the spirits of dead celebrities and predicted future events such as the September 11 attacks, however critics question the accuracy of their predictions.

Career as “The Psychic Twins”
After leaving West Chester, they moved to Los Angeles and refocused their career as psychics, calling themselves “The Psychic Twins”, reportedly charging more than $500 per person for psychic readings. According to the Jamisons, they have predicted the future and contacted spirits of the dead, such as Lady Diana, Natalie Wood and Michael Jackson.

The Jamisons predictions have often been featured in tabloid newspapers such as The Sun, and according to the Jamisons, they have have made numerous appearances in print, television, and on stage with “major stars”.

The Jamisons widely claim to have predicted the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center during a November 2, 1999 interview on the Art Bell radio show. However, according to show transcripts, their actual statement was: “We are seeing terrorist attacks on Federal Government, excuse me, federal buildings, particularly South Carolina or Georgia, by July 2002 and also the New York Trade Center, the World Trade Center in 2002.” The September 11 attack occurred in 2001, not 2002, and it was common knowledge that the buildings had been previously attacked by terrorists in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, calling into question the Jamison’s claims.

Leon Jaroff, in Time, pointed out that the Jamison twins were also frequently incorrect. For example, in December 2003, the Twins predicted that Saddam Hussein would be killed by U.S troops in early 2004, and that Pope John Paul II would die in June 2004 (he actually died in April 2005). They also incorrectly predicted that the Bush/Gore election would be a “crashing bore”, and that actress Jennifer Lopez would announce that she was pregnant by June 2005.

Dixon reportedly predicted the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In the May 13, 1956, issue of Parade Magazine she wrote that the 1960 presidential election would be “dominated by labor and won by a Democrat” who would then go on to “Be assassinated or die in office though not necessarily in his first term.” She later admitted, “During the 1960 election, I saw Richard Nixon as the winner”, and at the time made unequivocal predictions that JFK would fail to win the election.

Dixon was the author of seven books, including her autobiography, a horoscope book for dogs and an astrological cookbook. She gained public awareness through the biographical volume, A Gift of Prophecy: The Phenomenal Jeane Dixon, written by syndicated columnist Ruth Montgomery. Published in 1965, the book sold more than three million copies. She professed to be a devout Roman Catholic and she attributed her prophetic ability to God. Another million seller, My Life and Prophecies, was credited “as told to Rene Noorbergen”, but Dixon was sued by Adele Fletcher, who claimed that her rejected manuscript was rewritten and published as that book. Fletcher was awarded five percent of the royalties by a jury.

President Richard Nixon followed her predictions[citation needed] through his secretary, Rose Mary Woods, and met with her in the Oval Office at least once, in 1971. The following year, her prediction of terrorist attacks in the United States in the wake of the Munich massacre spurred Nixon to set up a cabinet committee on counterterrorism. She was one of several astrologers who gave advice to Nancy Reagan.
