The Difference Between A Psychic, Medium and Clairvoyant

The Difference Between A Psychic, Medium and Clairvoyant

What’s the difference between a Psychic, Medium and Clairvoyant?  Are you looking for connection or spiritual guidance?  Are you looking for clarity on which service will best fit your needs?

When looking for answers that align with your goals, you will most likely come across Psychics, Mediums, and Clairvoyants — all offering spiritual services. I often hear from clients that they believe that all three specialties are synonymous, which is not really accurate! Although Psychics, Mediums, and Clairvoyants are all gifted with spiritual abilities, they have significant differences in what services they provide and what techniques they use.

What is a Psychic?

I like to say, “All Mediums are Psychic, but not all Psychics are Mediums”. Psychics use the energy and vibrations that surround them, as well as their own natural, or learned, intuition to tune into your past, present, and future. By doing so, a Psychic will then be able to convey any messages or insight that can provide clarity to any inquiries you may have about different aspects of your life! If you are searching for guidance on your path of life, a Psychic who is able to tune into you and your experiences, is the spiritual professional for you to connect with!

What is a Medium?

A Medium is a spiritual worker who is able to connect to your loved ones who have crossed over to the other side. Mediums are essentially the communication link between people who are present on earth and spirits. If you are in need of comfort or seeking any information that may have been left unsaid during your loved ones time on earth, a Medium will be able to provide the direct communication needed for you to feel more connected to your loved one who is no longer with you in the physical world.

What is a Clairvoyant?

Someone who identifies as a Clairvoyant uses the psychic abilities within them to visualize energy, generally using the third eye. What does this mean? A Clairvoyant views energy in forms of movement, colour, pictures, shadows, orbs and lights. So is a Clairvoyant and a Psychic the same? Close, but not exact. One of the psychic abilities is Clairvoyance, there are many ways to connect to energy as a psychic. A Clairvoyant is a title to describe a Psychic who is able to tune into energy through the visualizations mentioned above. As long as you practice and trust your ability, I feel anyone can learn to access their inner Clairvoyance!

What is an Orb?

What is an Orb?

Have you ever taken a selfie with a group of friends and while you’re in the process of inspecting the photograph for any hair out of place, you notice oddly shaped objects or light in the photo that were not present at the time the photograph was taken? Have you ever noticed a moving ball of light on a baby monitor?

Depending on how spiritual you are, you may begin to question whether the object present in the photo is a technological glitch or a spiritual omen from the other side- paranormal, right?

Well luckily, these glowing specks or shapes of light are commonly known as Orbs! To spiritual folk, Orbs are figures that represent energy and often emit their own light, which is what is believed to be caught in still images. Although Orbs are recognized as spiritual figures, let’s get down to the different beliefs behind what they truly are.

Typically these spheres or speckles appear in still photographs, video footage, and sometimes around certain people. When an Orb has appeared around an individual on more than one occasion, it’s believed that they partake in the paranormal phenomenon behind Orbs or that their aura is open to spiritual connection.

Now, if we take a step back from a spiritual and mystical perspective, Orbs can also be explained scientifically. That beaming blue light you see in the back of your photograph, is it spiritual energy or is it just dust? Some photographers may view the speckles as dust particles magnified by the flash of a photo and believe that even the natural elements such as pollen, insects, and snow, may also be the culprits to the appeared “special effects”.

Ultimately, many people find the thought of spiritual energy daunting, and may choose to find comfort in the thought of science behind gleaming Orbs. On the opposing side, there’s people who seek spiritual meaning, who believe in energy protection, and view Orbs as a powerful sign from Spirit.

Now that we have dove deep into the different explanations and theories of Orbs, next time you encounter one, look deep inside and really decide, what an Orb means to YOU.
