Medium vs. Psychic - is there a difference?

Medium vs. Psychic

There is always a questions of Medium vs. Psychic.   Not  all mediums claim to be psychic and not all psychics claim to be mediums. But then there are people like me, who consider themselves psychic mediums. There’s a little bit of overlap.  We utilize both abilities as we go through life.  The truth is all Mediums are Psychic; those with psychic abilities are not able to communicate with the Spirit world like a Medium.   So if you want to talk to Aunt Betty about her recipe see a Medium, if you want advice on your career a Psychic may be more fitting.   Then again Aunt Betty may have some insight that will make more sense.

What is the difference between a Medium and a Psychic?

A medium can directly communicate with the spirits in the afterlife. A psychic on the other hand cannot do this, but they can perceive situations and sense things that the person sitting needs to know.

A medium serves as a channel between the world of the living and the afterlife which is beyond the abilities of a psychic. A psychic reads your aura to foretell your future while a medium reads the messages of the spirits.

What is a Medium?

  • Mediums tend to be strong, independent, and has a VERY solid spiritual background
  • Mediums connection to Spirit is direct
  • A medium is able to become completely receptive to the higher frequency or energies on which spirit people vibrate
  • Mediums Receive

What is a Psychic?

  • Psychics connection to Spirit is indirect
  • Being psychic is about sensing information that other people can’t usually access
  • Psychics perceive

You see there is subtle differences between the two.   Both can assist people in need by sharing important information that the person may be missing.   To answer the question posed?   It is completely dependent upon the need of the sitter.    One isn’t better than the other, we are different and our connection to Spirit operates uniquely.
