Psychics exist in every culture, religion, race, gender, and age. Regarding having the “gift,” religious orientation doesn’t influence it all. So, do Christian psychics really exist? Psychics of every religion exist, including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and Atheist.
However, people with psychic abilities rarely claim to have chosen them. On the contrary, most of them were either born with the abilities or experienced a traumatic event that unexpectedly triggered the manifestation of the psychic gifts. Some people have tried to develop psychic abilities through research and experimentation, but very few have succeeded.
Why Many Believe That Christian Psychics Don’t Exist
Some Christians believe that only God, or one of his helpers, can have supernatural powers. They know things like foreseeing the future, telepathy, reading another’s energy, and all the Clair senses aren’t gifts everyone is born with. As a result, they believe any human claiming to have psychic powers is lying or in union with Satan or other evil forces.
For them, there is no doubt in the question of whether or not there are Christian psychics. Their answer is loud and resounding- “No!” But few can give specific or solid reasons when pressed to explain the basis behind their belief. They simply state that “the Bible says that only God can have psychic abilities.” However, they can never pinpoint exactly which passage says this.
The Bible contains rhymes and puzzles, and people shouldn’t take what they read as literal. At the time of the Bible’s writing, times were different than they are today. Although they are firm in their beliefs, they cannot support those beliefs with written Christian literary facts. That leads people to believe they’re just saying what they think Christians should say and aren’t studying the Bible and coming to their own conclusions.
Is It So Hard To Believe That A Christian Could Have Psychic Abilities?
Another question we should ask ourselves is, “what makes a person a Christian?” Is it simply someone that believes in God and Jesus Christ? Is it someone that believes that Jesus Christ died for our sins, rose from the dead, and took our sins with him? Or is it a person who doesn’t go to church but treats everyone with kindness and respect? Is a Christian strictly someone who’s been “saved” and has given themself over to Christ?
Why should it be impossible for someone who believes these things also to have psychic gifts? And if God didn’t give them these gifts, where did they get them from at birth? Even men and women “of the cloth,” like preachers, ministers, bishops, and Popes, have taken actions that many would deem “supernatural.” Maybe they haven’t called it a “psychic phenomenon,” but that’s what it is sometimes.
Also, let’s think about prayers for a second. Christians ask for prayers when someone is going through a difficult time, right? Most of us have been there, praying to God or asking anyone who believes to pray for us. What are prayers when you think about it? They are a collection of thoughts and energy going out into the universe. It’s putting our intentions out into the world for manifestation, and that’s no different than what psychics do.
Was Jesus A Psychic?
Jesus of Nazareth was an extraordinary human being, regardless of anyone’s belief that he was the direct Son of God. He walked on water, transformed one material item into a completely different one, and could read a person’s thoughts. He knew that person’s life history and could instantly cure a person’s sickness with a touch.
Jesus was even able to bring a person back to life. Are these not psychic and supernatural abilities? And if God made us in his image, why wouldn’t this include some God-like abilities? The fact is that no one, no human being at least, can convincingly answer any of these questions.
The Greatest Psychic Ever Known Was A Christian
Many people believe that Edgar Cayce was the most remarkable person deemed to be psychic. A devout Christian, Edgar Cayce lived from 1877 to 1945. He was humble and didn’t like getting much attention for his “gift.” He truly believed God gave it to him to help his fellow man. Cayce knew he had to reach beyond his life to change the lives of those around him. This highly revered Christian psychic had a decades-long daily routine.
He would lay on his couch, get himself into a trance-like state, and then answer all types of questions that people would ask him. Although Cayce acknowledged his psychic ability, he was constantly conflicted about being chosen to have his “gift.” He frequently expressed his opinion that all men and women should follow Christhood. He was also a Sunday School teacher for many years.
Do We All Have Psychic Abilities Hidden Inside Of Us?
The human mind has accomplished many remarkable feats over the last 100 years. We’ve accomplished things like splitting the atom, creating the internet, advancing computer technology, and finding cures for many diseases, to name a few. Many scientists believe that despite these advancements, humans have only tapped into a fraction of the brain’s potential.
Some say that only 10% of the brain’s capacity gets used; others disagree and believe the number is closer to 1 percent. Can psychic abilities be hidden somewhere in the brain, waiting to be discovered? Are psychics, Christians included, born with their supernatural abilities unlocked? The reality is that researchers still don’t know the total capacity and possibilities of the human brain.
Modern Christian Psychics
So can there be Christian psychics in modern times? Of course, there can. Christian psychics today have similar views about it as Edgar Cayce did: that psychic abilities were a gift from God that needed to be used to help the lives of those around them. Christian psychics do not believe they are God-like or somewhat superior to everyone else. Instead, they see their “gift” in the same sense as someone who does their skills in art, medicine, or athleticism.
Most are very humbled about being chosen to possess these gifts. Many of them are reluctant or afraid to acknowledge the true extent of their abilities. They know how people might view them, especially other Christians like them. Christian psychics often choose not to have the gift if they could. They would prefer to live a “normal” life like everyone else instead.
Can Christian Psychics Be Trusted?
A person’s religion shouldn’t have anything to do with whether or not they are trustworthy. Every human being is unique; being a Christian shouldn’t mean anything. Is it possible for a Christian psychic to be deceptive? Sure. However, it is just as likely for a Christian banker, teacher, doctor, or other Christian professionals to be dishonest. People, as a whole, are honest and compassionate and only want to see the good in others, which holds true for Christian psychics and anyone else.
Should A Person Go See A Christian Psychic?
A person who wants to see a psychic should choose one based on their talents and experience, regardless of the psychics’ religious preference. Many Christians may feel more comfortable seeing a Christian psychic because there will already be that common ground between them. If a person is a Christian, they will have the same love of Christ as another Christian of a different calling or occupation.
Christian psychics don’t claim to be Christ. Most psychics, including the most well-known Christian psychic, Edgar Cayce, tend to be overwhelmingly humble. Anyone interested in seeing a Christian psychic shouldn’t let the fact that the psychic is Christian determine if they should seek their guidance. Christians may discover that the psychic being Christian helped make the entire experience more comforting and moving.
Psychics come from all walks of life, including those that follow Christ. People considering using a psychic should spend more time researching the benefits others have experienced from them. They should also see how others who consulted the psychic felt about them. Learning how much they’ve helped other clients is more important. These things hold more weight than the psychic’s religious beliefs.

This is a very interesting topic – thanks for sharing. As a Christian, I was conflicted with this issue at one point. The Bible is clear as to God’s position on the use of psychic abilities (Lev 19:31; Lev. 20:6; Isaiah 8:19-20, many many verses and stories on this topic in the Bible). I am sure you have probably heard them all — I did not come to bible bash but to encourage anyone who is a “sensitive” to pray to God for revelation. My question to God was: How can a psychic work for the devil yet assist in cases of demonic oppression? So confused on this issue – I prayed to the Holy Spirit to teach me on this matter.
So be careful what you ask for…
One night I had a dream in which I saw a foggy portal/doorway — I entered it. The doorway disappeared behind me. I had entered a dark place — a place of death. As I walked through the rooms of this place — there were rotting babies and limbs of people — sounds of moanings echoed throughout. As I tiptoed my way, I felt a dark presence in this place who knew I was there. It began to pursue me – I began to run looking for a way out.
I ran to a door – it resembled the doors of the safe to the national reserve — no possible way I could open that door or move its enormous locks. As I approached it, I realized it was open enough that I could squeeze through. I recall 3 doors representing 3 realms. In between the doors — I could see the spirits lining up to be with whomever was inside (like a brothel). When I ran out of the third door — I ran into a dead forest. The dark entity was not able to leave the 3rd door but instead he whistled and sent big black dogs after me. They were HUGE and extemely fast. As I turned to look in front of me – a man in white appeared to me with his hand extended to me. Time stood still.
When I put my hand in his hand, I could hear the whistle for the dogs to go back. He took me to a place full of light where I could see and hear women praying, their children playing. All these women were missing limbs (an arm, a leg, a hand). I knew these were the women rescued from the realm I just left.
The man showed me an engagement/wedding ring on my finger. A sudden concern for my children came over me — two small children were holding on to my legs but more were missing. I asked the man — where are the others – he showed me wedding bands on the ground and let me know the remainder of the children were stuck in that other realm. I began to weep.
I woke up to the sound of a man’s voice say: “Thou shall not prostitute thyself”.
I share this dream respectfully – not to criticize anyone’s beliefs – let him who has ears hear.
God bless you and thank you for the opportunity to share.
Thats an incredible revelation Carol! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
My grandmother on my fathers side was very superstious-Sence I was born with the shroud on a dark stormy day I think she thought I was a witch- Sense I was born so close Halloween- It was said I was born on October 16. 1939- but when `I got my birth certificate it stated I was born on October 30th-My mother objected to all that nonsense- and My grandmother used to say ” stuff like- don.t look at me with those dark eyes you little devil you. I have always been A devout Christian. I go to church every Sunday and have prayed all my life-Some times i wonder who I am?
YOU are who YOU are IN GOD. your birthdate does not reflect any evil. everyday can be Blessed–YOU were born and that in itself is a blessing.
your mother did the right thing in not going along with your grandmother–she had probably heard these kinds of things all of her life and had to see for herself what was REAL and true and what was NOT. keep praying and enjoying your spiritual relationship with God–what else really matters?
So very true Karina, as long as you have a strong relationship with God you can withstand anything.
i really liked this article. i was an atheist until the age of 17. that summer–i found out that God was real and God was there for me and Loved me. and I made a firm commitment to Jesus Christ. i am now 66. all of my life–starting when i was just a little toddler–i would say things to my Mom and then they would happen. it was odd to her that i did this. as i got older more things happened–i saw and heard things other people did not see nor hear.
one day i was diagnosed Schizophrenic–that was about 23 yrs ago. a few years later, i found myself telling people where they could find lost things–dogs and people–and then more and more psychic kinds of abilities started getting very strong in my mind–anything i could think of to do–MY mind could do. i did a lot of work–all in the area of Psychic. it was fantastic to help so many people–and instead of getting them dependant on me–i brought them to the Cross of Christ–i called it “fishing for Jesus”–i would count the “fishes” i brought to him every week! i loved it. but so many fellow Christians told me that what i was doing was against God. i asked them “how many Fishes did you bring to Jesus this week? this month? this year?” how can this work be against GOD–when all the info i get comes from HIM
–God is Truth
–satan is a liar and a lie.
we who love Jesus Christ and happen to have more mental gifts then others do, –have taken a “bad rap’ for too long….and i do not charge any money–but i do not refuse donations when offered. why? God doesnt want me to–i only obey Him. thank you for this article–it made me feel stronger–i NEEDED it.
sincerely, Rev. Karina
Hi my name it Tasha and I have been dealing with this issue for some time. I used to be into the meditation on opening the 3rd eye. When I was very small like 3 I was sitting in a floating boat in a swimming pool and fell in. I began to see things but it went away. I believe I have this gift but I’m very scared and prayed it away. I want to help people and recently had an experience. I used to use Norcos and was into drinking alcohol. I started using weed to get me off of pills. One night I called out to God to save me. I started to think he was talking to me and put my mind like a child. Thoughts about the bible started to pop into my head and I really thought he was speaking to me. I started to see signs. I don’t smoke weed anymore or drink. I felt like he weaned me off of it. I keep seeing repeating numbers on clocks and plates. Would you be able to email me that would be great. firstname.lastname@example.org
It certainly sounds like you have some Psychic ability. Lots of Psychics experience the same things. Don’t pray it away, nurture your gift. It really is a gift from God. You can use that to help a lot of people. Don’t be fearful.
I’m so glad you liked it Karina. I tell people the same thing, how can Psychics be evil if God himself gave them their gifts? It just doesn’t make sense.
its the first of June 2013. last week My Lord, “My Boss”, told me to do something i had not done in a long time–“Make a Christian Psychic listing on ebay again”.
my ministry has been focused so much on Healing that there was no room for ebay “5questions, answered” type psychic listing. and ebay has changed a lot since the last time i had done that–several years ago. I found that other psychics had listed under the heading of ” specialty Services”–and there was only a few. hardly any competition.
I made my first one–and it was purchased right away and iam currently working on helping the buyer in every area of their life. I had been prepared for a person asking me to pray for a healing of Cancer (my specialty)–and this first person did not request that–so i made a second listing right away–and that one ends tonight and has 2 bids currently–as well as 82 views and 7 watchers. I am surprised at all this attention! it used to be that when i made the listing as a CHRISTIAN–no one would care to purchase my listing or put me to work. (except for now and then)
i checked the other psychic listings and many of them are for those with NON-religious beliefs–and they are getting interest as well–but i think iam getting most of it.
i then checked the completed listings for psychic and i saw where in the last month almost every psychic listing had been purchased–and only a few different psychics are listing on ebay. not the hundreds of different psychics like in years past. i realize that a lot of this is because ebay is discouraging psychic listings and many were deleted after being made. but it makes it JUST perfect timing for ME! God has made it plain that this gift he let me “borrow” is for the benefit of others–and to bring people to Jesus christ. this gift is not for me. many times people will say “why didnt you know that this would happen? you are a psychic–right?”
thats when i have to tell them that–
“this gift is not there for me–when i need to know something ahead of time–I do not!
I must have faith in God for my future and faith that nothing will go wrong in my life that God doesnt know about or how to handle” ha ha…some psychic I am??!!!
if you want to see what my listing is like and the photos i am using–go to ebay and type in— Rev. Karina–and my listing (if i have one when you are looking) will show up.
i hope you see it and let me know too–ok?
love and warm hugs2U, Karina
ps–it might show up even when there is no current listing if you type in my name in Google–and add “ebay” or “psychic” thats how i found YOU again.
again, thank you for this article–you made me feel good about myself–something a lot of other Christians do not seem to care to do.
Unfortunately eBay doesn’t allow you to advertise readings any longer. I’m sure you can list one but its against their Terms of Service and as a result it’s illegal. I found only a handful of good Psychics on eBay. Most of them moved to the Psychic services when ebay gave them the boot. Best of luck Karina, I wish you well in your endevours!
