Let’s start with a little clarification on real psychic readings. You may be misled to believe that the tools for, and the forms of, divination such as tarot, oracle cards, cartomancy, palmistry, rune stones, numerology, i-ching, astrology and horoscopes require psychic ability. Tip: If there are written meanings being referred to it just isn't an authentic psychic reading!
While these forms of divination have nothing at all to do with real “PSYCHIC” readings they can be inspiring, enlightening and entertaining. But none are connected to metaphysical advice - with the exception of real psychics using these tools with their extrasensory perceptions (ESP) and not with the reference or recall of the associated meanings.
Why are psychic consultations called readings?
We call them 'real psychic readings' when the psychic reads the messages picked up in the sitting. That could be though seeing visions (clairvoyance), hearing voices (clairaudience), sensing feelings clairsentience), etc. with their extrasensory perceptions (ESP) - things that are not actually there in the physical.
All readings that utilize ESP (6th sense) are real psychic readings.
These readings differ between the medium, clairvoyant, psychic-tarot reader and channeler. Generally, the most sought-after psychic is called a medium. (Medium: An agent through which something else is transmitted or carried.)
Psychic readings bring information mainly through the 3Cs:
It is important to understand the difference between psychic mediumship and predictive psychic readings. A predictive psychic reader is a person with extrasensory perceptions such as telepathy and clairvoyance and can give an insight into the course of the future by tuning in on a material level. These psychics do not usually 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 is because psychic phenomena cannot be approached through intellect. Even in today’s enlightened society, sceptics analyse 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 the sacred call of mediumship is stirred later in 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.
Each medium will have his/her own specialty of one or more of the 'clairs' with which they connect to the spirit world and communicate with those who have passed over.
A psychic reading with a medium can be very reassuring for those who have lost loved ones. Contacting those who have died is very popular and even attracts the TV producers to televise some of the more famous mediums like John Edward, James Van Praagh, Gordon Smith and the like.
Some mediums are referred to as Trance Channelers. This type of medium will usually go into a light trance state while the being/spirit/guide aligns with the person and communicates THROUGH him/her. Some mediums have little, or no conscious awareness of the messages being shared. But this is not set in stone, some channelers will remain totally aware of the session whilst it is in progress.
The main point to add here for finding your most appropriate help is that true spiritualist mediums do not usually predict the future. Predictions fall outside of their code of practice.
So if you are seeking reassurance that your loved ones are safe in the afterlife a psychic mediumship reading is an appropriate solution.
Predictive Psychic Readings are provided by regular psychics who do look into the past present and future in one way or another. So if you are stressing about your love life, work and career direction, or your life path and destiny - then predictive psychic readings are your appropriate solution.
