While mediums are psychic, not all psychics are mediums. It’s true. When clients ask me to connect with departed loved ones, I usually tell them: “I’m Medium Rare.” While I may be able to see and talk with the other side, I’m not a “medium-on-tap,” like some of the other wonderful mediums here at Psychic Source, and I just leave it at that.
The distinction between a psychic and a medium may be subtle, since they both work on the same level, but there are fundamental differences between their abilities and gifts.
What is a Medium?
A medium also reads messages from the spirits in the afterlife and transmits those messages or signals to the client. The messages are usually clear and need little translation, since the information includes abundant validation letting the client know that the medium is legitimate. Mediums also use a number of different methods to achieve their connections, including meditation, shamanic journeying, and chanting, to name a few. Basically, a medium serves as a channel between the world of the living and the afterlife, which in most cases is beyond the abilities of a psychic.
A psychic reads and processes the insight they receive concerning relationships, career, money, or love, and then translates what they pick-up into real-life everyday language and meaning. While many mediums cannot read Tarot Cards or harness the power of other spiritual channels, such as crystal balls, runes, or oracle cards, a psychic can and will.
