It greatly disturbs me when someone seeks the services of a psychic to reveal what lays ahead in his/her future. I have never been a fortune teller. This expectation concerns me greatly as a clairvoyant/clairsentient medium. I prefer to focus on where you are at emotionally, and the blockages preventing you from achieving what you desire. I want to empower you so you overcome those blockages and make things happen and make healthy choices for yourself. By healthy choices I mean decisions that come from you. When you understand where you are at emotionally and how your emotionally-driven patterns of behaviour impact you, better choices are made. My greatest desire for you is for you to reach your greatest potential.
When I was younger, I used to regularly visit psychics for a reading because I wanted clarity and reassurance. I relied upon psychics to unveil how matters were going to pan out in my future. As I grew older I realised these readings had only captured a snapshot of my life at that given time within the context of the thoughts and emotions I was feeling.
Difference Between a Medium and a Psychic
Before diving head long into answering this question, lets clarify the difference between psychic and medium as often the two get very confused. Mediums and psychics utilise the same senses known as “the clairs”. There is clairvoyance (sight), clairsentience (feeling), clairgustance (taste), claircognisance (knowing), and clairsalience (smelling). Psychics and mediums both have the capacity to read you. However, they are quite different.
When you get a reading from a psychic, they read your personal energy, in particular your auric field. The information they speak about in their readings is largely derived from the given moment and what you are experiencing or emotionally processing. If you were to a psychic go for a reading again the following day when you were feeling very differently about things, the information received would be different.
So, whilst a psychic reads outward toward your personal energy field, a medium reaches upward as they raise their personal vibration to meet with the high vibration of the spirit world. They are vibrationally going up in an elevator, powered by their own battery pack. Meanwhile, the spirit world is able to press the ‘down’ button to lower their energy a little bit so the two lift cars are able to meet on the same floor. During a reading a medium will tend to provide you with evidence of loved ones in spirit. For example, they might describe mannerisms, memories you shared, or passions. Often it will be something you will be able to relate back to that person the medium is connecting with.
A Medium Can Work Psychically
Sometimes during a reading a medium might flit between moving vibrationally upwards and outwards (psychically). It helps the medium interpret the pictures and messages they are getting. Some mediums also move outwardly initially to connect with the person they are reading for and then shifts vibrationally upwards to connect with loved ones from spirit.
Sometimes We Can Obsess About Those Messages
All those many years ago, I used to obsess over the messages received during the readings. “They told me I would meet my life partner, and have three children by the time I am thirty-five”. We can so easily fixate on what we are being told by others. We play the messages over and over in our heads like a mantra and it becomes our life focus.
You all have the capability to develop those afore-mentioned “clair” skills. That’s right. Each of us are naturally born with them. It is just that only a handful grow up trusting them. When you rely upon your own intuition, a psychic reading is confirmation of what you already feel, know or see. It can be used as a tool or a reminder for you to keep trusting yourself as you move forward. You can learn and develop these skills for yourself. However this takes patience, time and dedication.
Turn Within, Don’t Seek Without
When we listen to others, we stop placing trust in our intuition. This is quite debilitating it affects our individual levels of discernment. When you are seeking that tall, dark handsome stranger the psychic told you about he or she will inevitably turn up in your life. Depending on what you are dealing with in your life at the current time, he may be bringing all sorts of challenges for you to wrestle with. When we are desperate for love, affection and our fairytale we become blind to what is staring at us dead in the eye. Looking back on my younger life, oh, the heartache I could have saved myself if I had listened to my intuition.
The Value of a Psychic Message
For me these days, psychic messages offer confirmation or clarification of what I already know. Sometimes they resonate strongly and I know what the reading is in reference to. The messages can be a reminder or food for thought too. I don’t hand over my power of choice though. So often we disempower ourselves by accepting far less than what we believe is conceivable. We don’t need to know everything. Why not let the universe work its magic and bring into our lives magic and blessings on a grand scale.
