What Is A Psychic Medium?
We associate “medium” with Ouija boards, tarot cards, and crystal balls. But, contrary to popular belief, there is more about mediums than meets the eye. Here's all you need to know about psychic mediums and clairvoyants and what they claim to do.
Mediums mediate between the living and the dead.
In other terms, Kellee White, a registered psychotherapist and spiritual medium, defines a medium as “someone who can speak with spirits on the other side.” Contrary to common belief, mediums do not communicate with the dead. “There is no such thing as death,” argues White. “There is just a shift from physical to spiritual being…and mediums are sensitive and intuitive enough to hear, feel, and see information from the other side.”
But how do mediums communicate with spirits?
Mediums claim to be able to enable “conversations” with the departed in a variety of methods. According to ChosenEyes, an Austin-based psychic, medium, and tarot card reader, “Some prefer to be possessed to serve as a vessel for spirits who require a human form to connect with this world. Many mediums are also empathetic and capable of sharing individuals' experiences on both sides of the veil,” and some, such as Chosen Eyes, “interact with spirits as clearly as they do with those on this physical level.” She claims, “Many of us are constantly shifting between worlds.”
What sets a medium apart from a psychic or clairvoyant?
It might be difficult to distinguish between mediums, psychics, and clairvoyants. Many people assume that the terms are interchangeable, although this is not the case. “Mediums may boost their frequency to a high enough level to connect to the other side,” White adds. “Psychics can convey knowledge about the past, present, or even the future, but they cannot send messages from the other side,” but “clairs” get more robust communications generally, i.e. clairvoyants have a clear vision, clairaudients have clear hearing, and clairsentients have clear feeling.
These people “typically see time and space,” according to ChosenEyes. However, it is crucial to emphasise that one gift is not superior to the other. “Everything has a purpose,” ChosenEyes explains.
One of the most often asked questions is ‘what the difference is between a medium and a psychic?' The term “psychic” is frequently used as a catch-all phrase for anybody involved with the paranormal. We know our five senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. But we have a sixth sense that is just as genuine as the others. This is the gut feeling or instinct you get that you cannot explain intellectually. It is also known as our sixth sense, psychic talent, or intuition. Everyone is psychic in some way, but not everyone is a medium.
A medium is a psychic who has developed extrasensory awareness and can communicate with entities from other realms. They can sense and/or hear spirit world ideas, voices, or mental imprints. A medium might become entirely open to the higher frequency or energies that spirit people resonate on.
Because a medium opens himself/herself to discarnate energy, mediumship is far more complicated than psychicism. Mediumship itself may be divided into two groups. Mental mediumship is the first and most prevalent form, and that is how many use their gifts. While completely cognizant, they interact with spirits. This type of mediumship, as the term suggests, makes use of the mind—the intuitive mind, not the intellectual or logical half. This form of mental mediumship is classified into numerous categories, which are as follows:
Clairsentience (clear feeling): The ability to sense information from spirit through forceful sentiments and emotions.
Clairvoyant (clear vision): Able to see things, colours, symbols, people, spirits, or situations with the mind's eye (these images are not apparent to the human sight and generally flash into the medium's mind).
Clairaudient (clear hearing): Capable of perceiving sounds or words emanating from a spiritual dimension.
Clairempathy (clear emotion): The ability to detect or “feel” the attitude or feelings of another person within oneself.
Clairgustance (clear tasting): The ability to detect the essence of a material from spirit through taste.
Clairscent (clear smelling): The ability to detect a fragrance or odour emanating from the spirit.
Clairtangency (clear touching): The capacity to comprehend information about an object, its owner, or its history by holding it or touching someone or something (this ability is commonly known as psychometry)
Physical mediumship, as opposed to mental mediumship, is the second sort of mediumship. The real physical body is utilised to acquire knowledge from spirit in physical mediumship. Only the medium's thought is used in mental mediumship. Channelling is a common type of physical mediumship. Another sort of physical medium is a trance medium (someone who enters a trance state to convey communications from the other side).
Some people are more susceptible to mediumship than others. They must usually acquire inherent psychic powers and mediumship skills over time.
Have you considered consulting a medium? Here's what you can anticipate.
Clients should anticipate to “hear from” departed friends and/or loved ones because mediums profess to speak with individuals who have passed on. However, the specifics of your session will differ. “Each media works differently,” ChosenEyes says. “Be open to intangible experiences as well as knowledge you may not have requested. Expect some level of direction, perspective, clarity, and honesty as well as patience “Mediums are humans crammed into a little area, so don't hold them to an unjust standard.”
The easiest approach to find a medium is to ask for a reference. Public evaluations are available on websites such as MediumSources.com. Google provides consumers with a quick and easy method to filter through the noise. (When applicable, the search engine also displays extensive ranking information and consumer feedback.) And personal recommendations are priceless. Regardless matter how you choose a medium, White advises choosing one that “understands sadness and loss… and delivers good proof of the loved one on the other side,” including names, dates, and particular features. Their message should likewise be clear.
