What is a Medium?
The primary role of a medium is to help you communicate with the dead. They have the ability to reach people in the afterlife and communicate with spirits. In this way, they act as a conduit, or quite literally a medium, between you and those who have passed on.
People will often consult a medium if there is a message that they wish to send to a loved one who has died, or if they are seeking advice from the afterlife. Whatever the reason for consulting a medium, they will work as your bridge between the spiritual world and the physical world.
What are Medium Readings and How Do They Work?
A medium reading is a spiritual reading designed to help you connect with friends, family and other loved ones who have passed away. It is not unusual for a medium to connect you with your spirit guide, or even departed pets.
In general, mediums communicate with the dead in two ways. The first is to simply commune with the spirit world. A medium may be sent a message directly, which they can then pass on to the appropriate person in the physical world. The other way is through a séance. The medium can try to contact the dead by performing a séance, however, some people may find this unsettling so it should not be treated frivolously.
Much will depend on the nature of the soul that you are looking to communicate with. Some souls are very loud and have important messages and they will reach out to the medium themselves. However, other souls are quiet and a séance may be needed in order to reach them.
When you consult a medium, it is important not to give too much information away at the start of a reading. Genuine mediums find that this is distracting and it influences them far too much. A good medium will be able to tell you things without you needing to give them any prompts.
The information you receive from a medium may be very varied. It is not wise to expect a medium to provide you with exact names, places, dates and so on. While this does happen on occasion, it is more usual for a medium to give a good character description of the communicating spirit.
During a reading, the medium will know when the spirit is approaching. The spirit will makes itself known to the medium and the medium will then be able to describe them to you, both their character and some of their physical characteristics. This can include details such as their illnesses and their cause of death. If there is a good connection with the spirit, the medium will then be able to give you more information about them, and hopefully pass on any messages they may have.
You will have likely heard the word ‘clairvoyant’ in connection to mediums. This literally means ‘clear seeing’, and it means that the medium has the ability to see spirits and the images that they wish to communicate. Many mediums are also ‘clairaudient’, which means ‘clear hearing’, and they are able to hear spirits directly talking to them. Some mediums will also be able to feel spirits’ emotions, and this known as clairsentient.
As the reading progresses, you will be able to put questions to the medium for them to pass on to the spirits. They will then be able to convey the answers directly to you. While readings are not always completely clear, at their best it is almost like having a direct conversation with someone who has passed on.
The best medium readings happen when the person having the reading is most responsive. Ideally, the medium will be able to see the individual, or at the very least hear them, as this helps the medium build a stronger link to the spirit world. A hostile environment will hinder a medium, so it is vital to go into it with an open mind and to be receptive to what they have to say. It is for this reason that skeptical people often do not get as good a reading as an open-minded, loving person does, a hostile mind will often destroy the possibility of a strong link to the spirit world. However, it is a matter of balance. If you are too eager and provide the medium with too much information, then this too can be a distraction that ruins a reading.
It is normal to be worried or even scared before consulting a medium for the first time, especially if you have recently lost a loved one. However, a good medium will quickly put you at ease, and it is important to remember that there are no risks involved in a reading. While you may have seen mediums communicating with ‘bad spirits’ in movies, in reality this never happens. It is also important to remember that the spirit you are hoping to communicate with may not come forward. However, a good medium will be able to contact them most of the time.
What is the Difference Between a Medium and a Psychic?
People often use the words medium and psychic incorrectly or interchangeably. However, they are two separate things and it is important to understand the difference.
First, all mediums are psychics, but not all psychics are mediums. A psychic will tune into your aura in order to gather information and provide you with advice based upon what they see. A medium can do this, but they are also able to tune into the aura of those who have passed on. If you are looking for guidance and advice about your future then you probably need to consult with a psychic. If you are looking to communicate with someone who has passed on then you need a medium.
