You may be forgiven for thinking that psychics and mediums are one and the same. There are actually some psychics who are mediums; however, they are more likely to call themselves a medium, rather than a psychic.
If you are thinking of getting a psychic reading, then it is important that you know the difference between a psychic and a medium, as one may be more suitable for your needs than the other.
What is a psychic?
A psychic is someone who have highly-developed intuition. Some people call this the sixth sense. There are several types of psychic power: Clairvoyance is probably the most well-known and basically means that the psychic is able to see the future. They may get visions or may have prophetic dreams. Clairvoyants often use crystal balls when doing readings, to make the most of their clairvoyant ability. Clairaudience is when the psychic can hear voices or messages from their higher selves that help them predict future events. They may sometimes hear actual voices which give them messages. Clairsentience is when the psychic gets certain feelings, such as butterflies in the stomach, that help them predict future events. Claircognizance is when a psychic just knows things. They can then use this knowledge to inform you of possible events in your future. Clairgustance is when a psychic can smell things that others can’t and they use this to help them understand certain situations.
Psychics use various divinatory tools to perform readings. One of the most popular is the tarot, but some psychics like to use crystal balls or read palms. Often, a psychic will use a variety of tools to give you an all-round reading. When a psychic gives a reading, they will use their intuition when looking at the cards or crystal ball and this will give them the ability to predict events that are likely to come up in the future and some may also be able to see things from your past.
