For millennia, people have been fascinated by the spiritual dimension of existence, about the energies that lie beyond our physical plane and the influence they have on our lives here on Earth. But not everyone can witness this spiritual dimension, which is why we rely on mediums, people with a higher level of intuition and a unique perspective on life.
However, not all mediums are the same. Many regular individuals want to connect with the spirit world and discover their life journey, but what kind of reading should you be looking for? Can a spiritual medium help you? Should you look for a psychic instead? Or maybe a clairvoyant? We tend to use these words interchangeably, but there are actually many differences in terms of what abilities they have, what they do, and how they can help us in life.
“Every medium is a psychic, but not every psychic is a medium”.
You’ve probably heard this a lot, so what does it mean exactly?
A spiritual medium is a bridge between our world and the spirit world. It’s someone who has fine-tuned their high level of intuition, often called the sixth sense, and can perceive things that are beyond traditional sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste. Psychics also have this extra sensorial perception, but mediums are capable of communicating with the energies of the beings on the other side. You can’t become a spiritual medium – it’s a gift that you are born with. You can only sharpen that sixth sense and get better at communicating with the other side.
In other words, a medium is like a link or an intermediary between two worlds, helping us communicate with loved ones that are no longer with us. In many ways, a session with a spiritual medium is a healing session where you can gain closure, forgiveness, or comfort. For example, if someone you loved passed away unexpectedly, a spiritual medium can help you better cope with this loss by showing you that their energy is still around and that they know how much you loved them.
Clairvoyance, or clear seeing, is just one of the many skills that a medium can have. Basically, during a session, the medium can experience the spiritual world in a visual way, seeing things, people and animals that are symbolic to the spirit’s life. Other senses that a medium may have are clear hearing (hearing spirit voices), and clear feeling (feeling a scent or the touch of a spirit).
Although a medium possesses psychic abilities, a psychic cannot help you communicate with someone from the spiritual world.
In addition to being a link between two worlds, a spiritual medium can also help you understand a higher philosophy, connect with your subconscious and discover your journey in life. If you often feel lost, unhappy and trapped, without knowing what to do about it, a spiritual medium can identify what’s holding you back and give you the clarity you need to make progress and free yourself.
A professional medium should be transparent about the kind of services they offer. To avoid misunderstandings, consider scheduling an initial session to talk about the reasons why you need a medium and the expectations you have from your sessions. This can also be a great way to build trust and see if the two of you “click”.
