Some Frequently Asked Questions About Psychic Mediums
Many people are curious about the psychic world. There are always questions about different aspects of psychics, psychic powers and the various forms of psychic reading. Some of the most frequently asked questions are about psychic mediums. While they are not a new concept and have been helping people for thousands of years, more recently there has been a huge surge in popularity due to their appearance in many TV shows, psychic interviews and movies.
So what’s the difference between a psychic and a psychic medium – or just a medium? First, a psychic is someone with some sort of psychic ability or multiple psychic abilities. For instance, someone who can read minds would have the ability of telepathy. The ability to speak with those who have passed on or with spirits is often called mediumship and those who have the ability are called mediums.
There is some debate over whether mediums are psychic or not or whether being able to communicate with spirits is some sort of natural or inborn talent. While there are compelling arguments on both sides, I believe it is a psychic ability. And like any psychic, a medium may have other psychic abilities, or they may only have one. Generally, a medium who only has the mediumship ability is called a medium while a medium who has one or more OTHER psychic abilities – such as clairvoyance, telepathy, precognition, etc – is called a psychic medium.
With that in mind, I’ve compiled a collection of some of the most frequently asked questions about mediums and psychic mediums. If you have questions about them, hopefully this will go a long way towards answering them.
Can Mediums Work Over the Phone or Internet?
The answer is yes… and no. The fact is, some psychics and mediums are able to work over the phone and others are not. For whatever reason, certain psychics need the proximity to the person they are giving the reading to, while others are not limited by physical distance. It’s not to say one is better than the other or one medium is more powerful than another, it’s just how their particular gift works. If you are interested in a phone reading, just ask the medium and find out if they can do phone or internet reading.
Can a Psychic Medium Only Communicate With the Departed?
This is a common question. While some psychic mediums specialize in communicating with departed loved ones and them only, many mediums can actually communicate with other spiritual entities, from Angels to Spirit Guides – or even evil spirits!
Is mediumship a common gift?
Actually, along the psychic gifts, which are rare in themselves, mediumship is actually fairly rare. There are many more psychic readers, tarot readers and palm readers than there are mediums. Often, mediums have other psychic gifts as well, but mediumship is so rare that anyone having it is usually known for their ability to speak or communicate with spirits rather than their other talents.
Can a Medium Give a Psychic Reading?
As I mentioned before, some mediums have additional gifts in addition to their mediumship and can give psychic readings or tarot readings or other types of readings, but some mediums only have the ability to communicate with spirits. They can only pass along the information the spirits impart to them.
Is a Medium Better than a Regular Psychic?
That’s sort of a loaded question. Is a car brake specialist better than a car muffler specialist? It depends on whether your car has brake problems or muffler problems. It’s the same with psychics and mediums.
As you’ve learned, a medium’s primary ability is the power to communicate with spirits. If you need information from a spirit, then talking with a normal psychic will give you less than ideal results since that is not their specialty. Whereas, speaking with a medium in this situation would most likely get you the information you are looking for.
On the flip side, talking to a medium who doesn’t do other types of readings when you want to know what will happen in the future with your job or relationship might not give you the results you want either. So it’s important that like choosing the right tool for the right job, you choose the right type of psychic for what you need.
Hopefully, you’ve learned a little about psychic mediums, mediums and psychics in general. Keep these questions and answers in mind the next time you are wondering whether to get a psychic reading or a psychic medium reading and it will help you make the best choice!
