Medium vs Psychic: What’s the Difference?

July 7, 2020

There is a difference between psychics and mediums. All mediums are psychic, but not all psychics are mediums. Let me explain.

A psychic reads energy, specifically YOUR energy, and connects with your Higher Self. For example, if you go to see a psychic for advice on how to deal with a cheating spouse, the psychic will pick up on that in your energy. A psychic DOES NOT connect with anyone on the Other Side in order to give information and/or messages. Their reading is entirely based on your energy. 

A psychic reading usually involves some kind of divination tool, like tarot or oracle cards. The psychic usually asks the sitter to put their energy on the tool, like holding the deck of tarot cards, and then the sitter picks cards. These cards are then read based upon their meanings and how those meanings work in the sitter’s energy. Both the sitter and the psychic can ask questions of one another.

A medium can also read your energy, but our information comes directly from those on the Other Side. This is why mediums can read over the phone and via the internet. All we need is to connect with your loved ones to receive information. If you go to a medium, expect to connect with your loved ones and those on the Other Side. The medium has control over how they work with Spirit during the session. The only thing that they cannot control is who in Spirit shows up. You may want to speak with Dad, but Grandma shows up because she’s the best soul to deliver the information you need to hear right now.

A mediumship reading normally doesn’t require any additional tools. The medium will connect with your loved ones and your spiritual team on the Other Side in order to provide information and messages for you. Note: The medium should never ask questions other than “Does this make sense to you?” and maybe the sitter’s name. I also ask, “Do you want to know everything?” Mediums should direct all other questions to spirit, not to the sitter. 

There are times when you may want to communicate with someone who has recently passed away. Some mediums will tell you that you have to give your loved ones at least 3 months in order to acclimate to being back on the Other Side. I don’t disagree that it takes them time to get used to being over there, but since time doesn’t exist on the Other Side, Spirit has control over when (or if) they show up. Our souls never stop growing and learning and so there are some who are ready to communicate with us immediately, and others that may take years (in our Earthly awareness of time). Don’t fret. Your beloved ones are only a thought away.
