These world famous mediums have the magical abilities to dialogue with spirits who have crossed over to the other side. In their own way, each has proven to be a ‘go-between’ with their client and the spirit who is trying to contact that person.
What's the difference between a psychic and a medium?
It is important to understand the difference between psychic mediumship and psychic fortune telling. A psychic reader is a person with extrasensory perceptions such as telepathy and clairvoyance and is able to give an insight into the course of the future by tuning in on a material level. A psychic does not have the ability to give verifiable information from the spirit world - except by the occasional accident. The work of a medium is to prove that the human personality survives after death. This can be a great help for the bereaved in coming to terms with their loss.
In the psychic community, mediumship is the most feared and least understood. That’s because psychic phenomena can’t be approached through intellect. Even in today’s enlightened society, skeptics analyze mediums as sitting in a dark room, watching tables rise from the floor, accompanied by woo-woo sounds.
Evidential mediumship is a spiritual gift. Most mediums are born with genetic psychic abilities like clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience. This gift ‘awakens’ in some as small children, for others an awakening can happen at any later stage of life.
The gift of mediumship grants the psychic permission and (seemingly magical) abilities to dialogue with spirits who have crossed over to the other side. The practicing medium acts as a ‘middleman’ between their client and the spirit who is trying to contact that person.
Without doubt, the most famous mediums in the world today would include Suzanne Giesemann, Theresa Caputo, Lisa Williams, James Van Praagh, John Edward, Allison Dubois, and Michelle Whitedove.
The life of mediumship has chosen all seven of these world famous mediums in unique ways. They did not choose this celebrity life. Practicing mediumship doesn’t come easy, yet these mediums have transformed countless lives of the grieving or those standing at a crossroad, not knowing which way to go. And thankfully, these famous mediums continue to blaze new trails that transcend the mediumship stigma.
