The difference between a psychic and a medium is something that can be confusing to many people. This is a question I am asked by almost every person who sits down for a reading with me and the difference between the two is very important. It’s important to know because mediumship is involved and requires a deeper level of connection. It can also be a more intense experience and you will want to be prepared for it emotionally.
One of the most important things to note about the difference between these two ways of connecting is that one cannot happen without the other. It is also important to note that who you are connecting with is different as well because the medium isn’t connecting to guides or creator – they are connecting with a very specific person on the other side of the veil.
The first thing to understand is that you can be a psychic without being a medium. However, you CANNOT be a medium without being a psychic.
A Psychic will have all of the basic skills that you need for a reading. They will be able to provide messages about what is going on in your life, potentially they will be able to provide insight into your future and most importantly they can provide divine guidance, direction and advice from God and Creator…or whatever or whomever you connect with as your higher power or higher level of creation. A Psychic has the gifts that will allow them to see, hear, feel and know what is important for you to grow and flourish in your life. How a Psychic connects to the information can vary. Some Psychics use oracle cards or Tarot cards and some Psychics will not need any tools and will have the ability to connect using only their intuition (This is how I read. I don’t need to use cards or tools…I only use them when my client asks for them.)
A Medium is a Psychic but they also have the ability to connect with your loved ones who have passed and exist on the other side of the veil, and they will use all of their psychic gifts to be able do this. A good medium will be able to connect to your loved ones and provide you with enough evidence that will let you know that they have connected with your loved ones. Some of the evidence that they may be able to provide is names and dates, how your loved one passed, along with shared memories and experiences that you may have had together.
A mediumship reading can be a truly beautiful experience that can bring you peace, clarity and closure after the loss of a loved one.
