What is the Difference Between a Psychic and a Medium?


Psychic readings have become a popular part of today’s culture, as they have been helping people to overcome difficulties in life and get on the right path for decades. Psychics and mediums have earned huge reputation all over the world, yet many don’t have a clue what exactly do they do or that they are not the same. Most people believe that they work in the same supernatural way and that they are able to foresee things, read minds and predict one’s future, but they could not be more wrong.

A psychic is any person who has developed a sixth sense, or a highly-developed intuition, which allows them to perceive things from people’s aura. The aura is an energetic field that any of us has and it is consisted of our emotions, feelings and thoughts. With their natural or trained intuition, psychics are capable of reading our aura and so help us identify what has been bothering us lately. This way, we know on what aspect of our life we need to focus in order to have a better life. Also, our aura contains our inspiration, life goals, experiences and motives, which makes it even easier for psychics to make a psychic reading.

A medium is any person who claims to have an ability to communicate with spirits out of this world, or more exactly, from the spiritual realm. These people perceive information from the spiritual realm in many different ways, from images and words to actual sounds. Besides their otherworldly information, mediums can perceive the spiritual energy around people. Famous mediums who appeared on television or signed their own books based on their incredible abilities to communicate with deceased souls have largely contributed to making mediums much more popular than psychics.

There are many differences between a psychic and a psychic medium. For starters, psychics are focused on providing a psychic reading with possibilities that might happen in your future, while mediums analyze your past and present, reach out to the spiritual realm and try to provide a psychic reading that can help you make your own future better. Predicting the future is not only impossible, but even if it were possible, it would be dis-empowering. While psychics are more future-oriented, mediums never take the role of future-tellers.

The tools these two use are also different. Psychics often rely on the help of the stereotypical items, such as crystal balls, tarot cards, astrology charts, etc. On the other hand, mediums use no tools. They describe the information and the images they receive from spirits, ghosts and other spiritual beings that might contain a valuable meaning to the person being read. Some mediums can turn into a trance-like mode and allow spirits to take over their bodies to convey the message to you. Others can remain widely awake, yet be in the spiritual world from where they will be delivering messages to you.

Mediums are indeed more popular, but both professions are equally profitable. However, millions of people are still wondering if they can be trusted. The reason why many people doubt psychics and mediums is that their expectations are very high due to the many false beliefs and myths regarding them. All you should expect from a session with a psychic medium is to have fun, to get help identifying your issue’s core and find out how to deal with your problem.
