According to an ABC report, two-thirds of Americans believe in the power of psychic abilities. The same report stated that as many as 37% of police departments in the United States have used information from a psychic, at least once. All you have to do is turn on the TV in the middle of the night or walk down the city street and you are likely to see a psychic at work or a fortune-telling shop. While, people tend to use words like psychics and mediums interchangeably, there is a distinct difference between the two abilities.
What Is a Psychic?
All psychics claim to have some type of extrasensory perception, such as clairvoyance, telekinesis, or aura reading. Many psychics specialize in predicting a person’s future, answering life questions, foretelling the future, or some other supernatural talent. Not all psychics have the same abilities. Some may have several abilities, while other only specialize in only one form of psychic power.
Many times, they will use psychic tools, including crystal balls, tea leaves, or tarot cards to tell someone’s future, predict their love life, and help their clients make important decisions about their future. Some psychics can also read minds and reveal past events or even of events that took place in a former life.
How Is a Medium Different from a Medium?
Technically, all mediums are considered psychics. However, their specialty is communicating with the spiritual world. They will often try to communicate with a person’s loved one who has already passed. Mediums can provide valuable information to the family and/or friends of the deceased person, such as the details surrounding the person’s death or personal information so the family knows it is really their loved one. These services can offer family and friend peace of mind, by letting them know that their loved ones have successfully passed to the other side.
If you are trying to determine if you should visit a psychic or a medium, it really depends on the type of information you are hoping to obtain. If you want to find out about a loved one who has passed away, a medium is your best option. It is important not to share too many details about your loved one, but rather allow the medium to share the important details with you. If, on the other hand, you need advice about your future or you need help making an important life decision, you should stop by a psychic’s shop.
