Psychics and mediums: what is the difference?
Posted On May 24, 2023
You’ve probably heard phrases like “all humans are mammals, but not all mammals are humans.” This concept that one thing is another but the other thing is not necessarily the only type of the first thing is an important distinction when trying to differentiate between a psychic and a medium. They are not necessarily the same thing.
Let’s do a little definition first. A medium is a person who has an active connection to the spirit world and can often communicate with those who have passed away, spirit guides, and other spiritual entities and energies. Also, all mediums are psychic. On the other hand, a psychic is a person who can tune into the energy of people and objects and can use this energy to observe and determine things about the past and future. Also, psychics tend to rely heavily on their intuition and instincts to make predictions. Not all psychics are mediums.
I usually work mainly as a psychic, but I am also a medium. I find that mediumship requires a completely different level of concentration, awareness and energy production to perform, whereas psychic work tends to be a bit easier. Since we have all lost a loved one, most people tend to want to know more about mediumship and how it works, so my goal is to explain it to you.
My experience as a psychic medium will not be the same as someone else’s. When I work as a psychic medium and “see” the Spirit through clairvoyance, people often wonder if I’m actually seeing the spirit physically (so to speak) in the room. Yes and no. If you grew up in the late 1980s and early 1990s, you will remember the transparencies in your school classrooms. A teacher was able to take a sheet of transparent paper and place it on a machine that would inflate the image on the paper and project it onto the wall. This is how I experience the Spirit when I see them. It is as if someone placed a transparency over the world. The Spirit “Hearing” is very different. I actually get words written on a huge mental movie screen that I can then read and transmit to a client.
As with any profession, there are mediums who specialize in certain things, like helping law enforcement solve crimes. There are other means that help trapped souls to cross over to the other side. I don’t deal with law enforcement at all and have only had to help a trapped soul across once, which is something that happened when I helped a friend who lived in a genuinely haunted house.
I think it’s important to note that despite what a psychic may tell you regarding your future, you need to realize that nothing you see is completely set in stone. The energy patterns change and there is the whole concept of free will. I’ve also found that in working as a medium, it’s often not the crusaders who require my help, it’s those left behind who have trouble coping with their absence.
With any reading, it’s important to keep an open mind and set a positive intention for Spirit so you can get the most out of your experience. Let your intuition and instincts guide you as to who should do a reading for you, keeping in mind that there is no one closer to your deceased loved ones than you!
