Be it person or pet, if you lost someone you love, then you know very well how difficult it can be to move forward. Perhaps you never had a chance to say goodbye, maybe you parted on bad terms, or it’s possible that you simply cannot let go. These are all reasons why people choose to seek the assistance of a medium. Why? Because they are a specific type of spiritual advisor who has a gift of communicating with the dead. While this may sound a bit frightening, it’s nothing like the negative connotations you see in films. In fact, it can be an extremely beneficial experience. While it’s different for everyone depending on their situation, the main benefits of a mediumship reading include closure, receiving answers, comfort, the ability to heal, a lessening of grief, and a form of spiritual counseling. Let’s take a deeper dive into what a medium is—and isn’t.
Psychic versus Psychic Medium
While not all psychics are mediums, all mediums are psychic. The difference is that psychics rely on their intuition to collect data about one’s past, present, and/or future. This is achieved by reading the recipients energy field, which sometimes involves connecting with spirit guides. They oftentimes incorporate other forms of divination such as tarot and astrology. The purpose of a psychic reading is to receive guidance, inspiration, or a fresh perspective about matters relating to love, relationships, career, health, personal growth, and more.
A medium, on the other hand, connects with the recipient’s deceased loved ones via psychic ability. It’s important to note that according to mediumship, that the spirits of these individuals are still quite alive. Despite their psychic powers, you won’t visit a medium to get information about your love life or to chart out a career path. Their only goals are to provide individuals with the comfort of knowing their departed loved ones are still a part of their lives, to banish the fear of death, to deliver messages from the deceased, and to provide closure and bereavement support. So you see, psychic medium readings are in a category of their own. It’s also possible that one may tap this type of spiritual advisor to learn more about the signs of being a psychic medium, or how to develop medium abilities on their own.
Seeing a Medium for the First Time
Contrary to what you may think, you need not be face-to-face with an advisor. The best psychic mediums are able to conduct medium readings over the phone. To get the most out of your session, be sure to do your research. Make sure you understand your family’s history, to include the lineage of your spouse/significant other’s side, too. Be open to speaking to anyone. It’s also not uncommon for pets to come into the equation. Next, come up with a list of open-ended questions that you would like to ask. Avoid anything that can be answered by a simple “yes” or “no” For example, “What does my mom think of the choices I’ve made for my life?”vesus “Is my mom proud of me?” Lastly, always remember that you have to be prepared for what you will hear. Consider if a reading will do more harm than good, especially if you’re currently in a poor emotional state.
