What You Need to Know About Mediumship


You’ve probably read the words psychic and medium in articles I have written. Today I will discuss in detail all about mediumship, what a medium is, and how a medium differs with a psychic.


What Is A Medium?

People who have the ability to receive messages from spirit beings are called mediums.

Mediums are people who are gifted with the ability to receive messages from beings from the spirit world. Mediums may receive information in the form of words and images, also hear guides and angels speaking directly to them.

When delivering messages from the Spirit World, the medium could be in a trance-like state, or conscious and fully lucid.

Mediumship refers to the gift that gives a person the ability to communicate with spiritual being and share their messages with us.


Difference Between A Psychic, Medium, And Psychic Medium


A psychic is someone who has well-developed psychic abilities and uses the information they receive, via Extra Sensory Perception (ESP) to answer your questions during a psychic reading. They can use their gift to tap into your past, present, and future, along with the different aspects of your life.

A Medium has the ability to communicate with, and receive information from, beings from the Spirit World, such as spirit guides, angels, and deceased loved ones. They can link their energy with these beings to provide you with guidance, information, support, and love.

A psychic is not necessarily a medium, but a medium is also a psychic because a medium can use the information received from the Spirit World to tell you about your future. Therefore, all mediums are also psychic, but not all psychics are mediums

A psychic medium has all of the abilities as a psychic, along with also being gifted with the ability to communicate with the Spirit World.


Types of Mediumship


There are four main types of Mediumship, and these are:

  1. Physical Mediumship

This type of medium has the ability to work with physical phenomenon, which includes table tipping, slamming doors, smoke billet pictures, noise making, levitation, and the creation of ectoplasm.

The physical medium and the Spirit work together to produce and create such physical phenomenon. 

  1. Healing Mediumship

This type of medium is where the medium brings the “divine light energy of spirit” through his own body to heal himself and other people. This is done by laying his or her hands on those who are sick and unwell.

  1. Spiritual Mediumship

This type of medium receives messages from the spirit world, in the form of clairaudience (clear-hearing), clairvoyance (clear-seeing), claircognizance (clear-knowing), clairsentience (clear-feeling), and clairgustance (clear-tasting), and conveys these messages to other people.

  1. Channeling Mediumship

Channeling is similar to Spiritual Mediumship, except the medium delivers messages in the form of speaking and writing by allowing the “control spirit” they are connected with to control their hands and mouth to convey its messages.
