Did you ever wonder what the difference is between a psychic and a medium? Well there is indeed a difference and it is important to distinguish between the two. A person can indeed be both as you need to be psychic first of all to develop or possess the advanced skill of mediumship, but many psychics are simply psychic and do not have mediumship skills or if they do it is only a fleeting link and not enough to substantiate the name of psychic medium. A psychic has abilities on a physical level, they can read an aura and gain knowledge about a persons past or present experiences and to a degree predict future outcomes. Telepathy is an example of psychic ability. Psychics do not provide evidence of life after death, but do show that we all have the possibility of supernatural abilities. A gifted fortune teller uses these faculties within them. A person can be a medium and a psychic at the same time. A medium is a channel between the spirit world and this world. They allow spirits to inspire them and communicate with them with thoughts, symbols and feelings which the medium then coveys to the sitter. These are called evidential pieces of information and serve to act as proof of survival after death, using techniques such as clairvoyance which is seeing beyond the normal senses, and also clairaudience which is hearing beyond the normal senses, clairsentience for this skill this is a person who will pick up a thought and just knows it. This type of person is sensitive to precognition and has hunches, dreams and knowledge. Physical mediumship is very specialsed and concerns the use of ectoplasm which is used for spirits to manifest either themselves or move apparatus around as evidence of their presence. Mediums will have a conscious agreement with the spirit world entities or their own spirit guides to channel messages from them. A person can be a medium and a psychic at the same time. Mediumship is a higher form of communication and works at a higher vibratory level. If you imagine a radar scanning around a mediums head, using this they pick up finer frequencies that the spirit world exist within. A medium shall be more sensitive as a person to pick up mediumship messages. Physical mediumship is one of the hardest and highest forms of mediumship as it offers the best form of proof of survival due to the spirit form entering the aura of the medium and using the mediums physical energies to appear in solid viewable form in the recognizable way the spirit once existed in the flesh on the earth plain. Mediumship is more advanced than a psychic as it connects two worlds which are the physical as well as the spirit realms. A psychic can read someone but that is not the same as giving advice and evidence from the spirit side where those once living reside. For readings always choose a psychic medium for the best results and more information.
