I’ve never considered myself anything but a medium, but some call me a psychic, because I read the cards, ribbons and stones as well as give platform clairvoyance. I am clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient, as well as being a qualified healer, so where does that place me in your definitions (which are fascinating, by the way!) I also have to say a medium could have seen the red, those who are good at psychometry could touch the tree and ‘see’ the red coming out of it. We all have many different gifts, we just need to work at them. This is why, after our meditation journey in circle, we get our sitters to ‘work’ with cards, psychometry, deciphering scribbles, reading from portraits or photographs, checking the inclusions in crystals to make something of them, discussing lucid dreams and divining their meanings, so that all our individual gifts can be worked on and developed. I think/feel there is a massive cross over between psychic and medium, depending on how we use our gifts


Parapsychology defines a psychic as anyone who is able to pick up energy and read it. Mediums are those who are able to, hear, see, or communicates with those believed to be passed over, or higher spirit beings. Both sets of skills can be developed. Gerald Croiset was a well known psychic who was able to develop his abilities after working with a parapsychologist


Honestly, to me; it seems a medium would be more useful when it comes to the paranormal. I would like to get into investigation but finding someone around my area who would admit that and not be “a few loose screws” is like finding a real life pokemon. Both gifts would be hard to deal with. God bless.


so it seems as though the idea of an actual medium and psychic is like finding a four leaf clover. i guess you should know they do exsist and so do i. i’m not as experienced as most when it comes to all this but i am willing to try. i am aware i can speak to those i dont prefer to hear from and they can hear me if i chose. but there really isn’t much info for ppl who fit both to learn how to balance them out. u mind pointing me in the right direction ?
