Although the terms “psychic” and “medium” are often used together, there are differences between the two. Psychics possess the ability to tune into people and sense parts of their past, present, and future. In short, psychics use their intuition to obtain information for the individual seeking the reading.
Mediums, on the other hand, apply their psychic abilities to tune into the spirit energy that surrounds an individual. Mediums use these abilities to communicate with individuals who are deceased and deliver messages to their loved ones who are alive. Thus, a medium gives a voice to spirits and provides a connection between the physical and spiritual worlds.
Another difference between psychics and mediums is that psychics tend to predict the future, whereas mediums focus more on the past and present. Those who seek the services of a psychic should know that they are simply obtaining information about what could happen and that they still have agency and the power to direct their future.
