What’s the difference between and Psychic and Mediumship connection or reading you ask? Well, as I sat with Spirit today, I felt like I wanted to share with you some information to help you easily understand the purpose for each as well as be able to recognise and identify the difference between a psychic and mediumship connection.
Firstly, a psychic connection involves ‘reading’ or ‘blending’ with the energy field (aura) of ‘the sitter’ (the person having the reading) or objects by feeling or sensing for information and insights about where they are in their journey, events, situations and experiences related to their past, present and future whether related to relationships, work, finances, home, health etc. Simply put, psychic connections are about the reader using their intuition and senses to answer questions and offer you advice often by using various divination tools, such as tarot cards, pendulums or psychometry. A psychic will use often use these tools to help interpret and bring through the information from your higher self or spirit guides about possibilities for the future, so you can make decisions and choices about the path and direction you take in your everyday life. Psychic information is essentially just insight into possibilities that could happen based on the current path you are traveling - the future is never set in stone - you have free will choice and at any moment can redirect your course and create the life you want by changing your thoughts, emotions or taking actions resulting in a different direction.
On the other hand, a mediumship connection involves ‘blending’ with and ‘allowing’ the essence of a loved one who has passed to the Spirit world to step into the Medium’s energy field (aura) and bring forward evidence that proves (beyond reasonable doubt) who the ‘Spirit Communicator’ is and that the soul continues to survive after we leave this earth. Now, it is important for you to know that all mediums are psychic, yet, not all psychics are mediums and able to connect and bring through evidence from those in the Spirit world, so a Medium can deliver both psychic and mediumship readings. A Medium will also use their heightened physical senses, known as the ‘Clairs’ to communicate with one of your loved one’s who has passed over, whether by seeing the physical appearance of your loved one who has passed using clairvoyance, hearing their words, thoughts and other sounds through clairaudience, feeling emotions, medical conditions or physical sensations in their body through clairsentience/clairempathy, just knowing information or details about your loved one from their claircognizance or even being given certain smells or tastes as part of their communication.
Most people seeing a Medium for a reading, have experienced or are experiencing grief, so it is important to remember that these type of readings, can never take the place of the grieving process – grief is patient and forever changes us, so you must allow yourself to move through grief in your own way and in your own time. A mediumship reading, however, can help to bring you healing, a sense of peace, hope and comfort as you are reconnected with those you have loved and lost in a way that is loving, respectful and honouring to all involved. Once you have been provided you with evidence that proves which of your loved one’s in Spirit the Medium is connecting and communicating with, they may also provide you with details about current situations and experiences taking place in your life give advice, insight and answers to help you move forward as they are also able to see the road ahead.
You may be surprised to know that a lot of empath’s, that is someone who is highly sensitive to energy and has the ability to psychically tune into and sense, feel and absorb information physically, mentally and emotionally are also natural mediums. Empaths are more likely to be able to easily tune into other people, animals, places, locations, situations and events, sometimes effortlessly connecting in with loved one’s who have passed over to bring through messages, guidance and insight. If you are not sure if or how you can do this, all you need is learn some tools and techniques through either psychic or mediumship classes, workshops, courses or coaching programs.
So there you have it…..a little bit of insight into the difference between a psychic and mediumship connection and how most empaths are natural mediums. For me as an Empath and Medium, who works most strongly with my Clairsentience, I consider myself to be the bridge between the spiritual and the physical world and my purpose is to bring love, peace and healing to those in both worlds respectfully and honestly. I thank my loved ones in Spirit as well as yours every day for the support they provide me so I connect in and pass on their loving messages!
