Medium and Psychic

Medium and Psychic

It can be confusing when people talk about mediums versus psychics. They are often given terms that don’t apply to them. The terms may be a bit confusing as well.
If you’re trying to find a guide, it’s vital that you understand what they are capable of helping with, and what they are not.
Many times, guides are lumped together into one category when they can be vastly different from each other.


Clairvoyant psychics (with the power of seeing objects or actions beyond the range of natural vision) can see the past, present and future, making them highly sought after to discuss topics of love and relationships, finances, or spiritual wellness. Clairsentients (psychics that perceive through strong physical sensations, often described as “gut feelings”) can touch and feel what us average human beings cannot, such as energy or the hand of a loved one who has passed on. Clairaudients (psychics that perceive information through messages they hear) can hear what a deceased loved one is saying. Every psychic has a different skill, and each is special and unique.


While a psychic may not be a medium, all mediums are psychic. However, a psychic medium’s skill goes one step further. A medium uses his or her psychic or intuitive abilities to see the past, present and future events of a person by tuning into the spirit energy surrounding that person. This means mediums rely on the presence of non-physical energy outside of themselves for the information relevant to the person being read. A medium has fine-tuned his or her extrasensory perception and can interface with the spirits in other dimensions. They are able to feel and/or hear thoughts, voices or mental impressions from the spirit world.
The most helpful method of differentiating between a psychic and a medium is remembering that Psychics Perceive and Mediums Receive. This information will be most useful in determining whom to turn to when you’re seeking guidance or new insights based on your unique inquiry.
