The Difference Between Psychics And Psychic Mediums

By Kathleen Burns

When it comes to palm, rune or tarot card readings, it is often easy to locate someone involved in this type work. However, when looking for Psychic Mediums, it can often be more difficult. For, while a number of people have the ability to read the past, present and future, or provide guidance through life path readings, there are fewer experienced mediums.

When it comes to mediums, these individuals are often fewer and far between compared to the world of psychics providing different types of card or other readings. For, these individuals can often communicate with souls in the spirit world. As a result, many individuals look towards mediums in order to communicate with a loved one who has passed on.

For the most part, a medium works to translate messages between the spirit and physical world. Whether through a private session or public seance, these individuals can often channel information based on personal experiences which the client has provided. In some cases, this might be a question. Whereas, in others it could be to send a message to the departed that one was never able to relay before the person passed on.

At other times, mediums can hear auditory messages or experience a presence, especially in the case of a seance. In fact, there are some psychics and mediums who offer readings and seances on a regular basis. While this is the case, it is often advised that those participating in these events know what to expect before attending such an event.

Regardless of whether an individual ask a question, or wants to simply hear what a spirit might have to say, seances can often be a good option. Although, it is always advised that if an individual has never attended this type event that the organizers explain the process prior to beginning the seance. Otherwise, an individual might react in ways which are unexpected and that cause emotional disturbances during, or after the ceremony.

During most channeling experiences, the medium somewhat represents the spirit of the person being called forth from the spirit world. As such, the individual can often take on the energy and voice of the spirit. While some people find this quite comforting, there are others who can not handle the emotional overload of this type experience.

It should be noted that many people who are not trained in the psychic arts can still communicate with the dead. Although, for those with little to no experience, it is often suggested one have a guide present. In doing so, individuals can often better understand any messages being translated between the spirit physical worlds.

When it comes to people such as Sylvia Browne and John Edwards portraying the life of mediums on television, those working in the real world are far different. For, in most cases these individuals are only working with clients to help one communicate with loved ones whom have passed on. Whereas, those in the public eye are often trying to use the process as a means to sell books, CDs, tapes and other materials.
