Mediumship refers to the ability to communicate with the spirit world. This can be done in a number of ways, including through clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and more. Mediumship has been practised for centuries, and it is said that everyone has the ability to connect with the spirit world. However, not everyone is aware of this ability or how to use it. For those who are interested in exploring their mediumship abilities, there are a number of resources available online.
“Mediumship” is generally defined as the ability to communicate with the spirits of those who have passed over, along with spirit guides and angels. It is a form of extrasensory perception (ESP) that allows the medium to receive messages from the other side.
What is a medium?
The role of a medium is to mediate communication between the spirits of the dead and those living here in the physical world Mediums may have the ability to:
1. Sense or see a spirit’s presence
2. Hear spirit voices in their ear, or in their mind
3. Relate conversations with spirits
4. Allow a spirit to control and/or speak through their body
5. Physically relay messages (for example with a pen and paper)
6. Fall into a trance and speak without being aware of what they are saying
7. Tune into the spirit energy of another person to relay a message
What’s the difference between a psychic and a medium?
It’s common for people to get confused between psychic ability and mediumship. An important distinction to remember is that a medium is a psychic, but a psychic isn’t necessarily a medium.
What do Psychics do?
Psychics will often have multiple skills that help them discern the future and answer questions on topics such as money, health and love. These skills could be anything from Tarot reading to Runes or Crystal Gazing.
Psychics use their abilities to give you information that you otherwise wouldn’t have known. This is generally about making predictions for the future or providing guidance on a particular decision. People seek out psychics for all sorts of reasons, whether it’s to find out about an upcoming event or get some clarity on a current situation.

Why visit a medium?
There are a number of reasons why people get in touch with a medium. Some people simply turn to a medium for guidance – to ask questions and seek solutions. For many others, it’s to cope with the loss of a loved one and to receive comfort in knowing that all is well on the other side. Some people want to seek reassurance from a loved one who has passed away. Perhaps there were things left unsaid or not enough time to say goodbye.
