How Does a Psychic Medium Work?
Looking to hire a psychic medium, or take a quick visit to see what they’re all about? You don’t have to be into the occult or deep spirituality to have an interest in the work of a psychic medium. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t fun to check them out and have a cool (and potentially spiritual) experience.
But what does a psychic medium do, and how does their practice work? Before you go to a medium, we want to explain the basics. Keep reading to learn more so you’re prepared when you have your session.
Is a Medium Just a Psychic?
So what is a psychic medium anyway?
Think of psychics as whales and mediums as dolphins. All dolphins are whales, but not all whales are dolphins. To follow this analogy, all mediums are psychics, but not all psychics are mediums.
There are several types of psychics. Psychic abilities range from future sight to mind-reading, with a whole range of potential abilities in between. One of those is speaking to (or otherwise communicating with) the dead.
The ones that communicate with the dead are mediums.
A medium aims to channel your dead loved one. Some mediums claim to be possessed by the person who has passed, while others claim to speak to them or feel them when they’re in the same room.
Some mediums use channeling tools like cards, spirit boards, or ghostwriting (in this context, this means having a ghost control their writing on a blank piece of paper). Others don’t use tools and instead use their intuition.
Will a Psychic Medium Always be Able to Reach My Loved One?
This is tricky. If you’re seeing a medium and not doing it for fun, you probably have a vested interest in communicating with someone from the great beyond. If this is the case, you may be worried about being disappointed and leaving empty-handed, so to speak.
Even the best psychic medium can’t guarantee that they’ll be able to contact the person that you’re trying to hear from. There are several reasons for this.
Some mediums may claim that your loved one isn’t in the room at the time. Spirits are busy and they have places to be. With a whole wide world to roam, they may not be nearby.
Some spirits may pass on, meaning that they don’t have a tight connection to the earthly realm. Others may be overshadowed by louder spirits trying to get attention.
Whatever the cause, when you get a reading, go into it with the knowledge that you may leave without making that connection. Cautious optimism is the way to go.
Are You Interested in a Reading?
If you have a loved one that’s no longer with you, it makes sense that you’d want to reach out to a psychic medium for the chance of communicating with them one last time.
Don’t be afraid to schedule a session with a medium. It might be able to provide you with closure and insight so you can be at peace.
