I was looking back today through some older posts I had shared on social media. It took me back in a wander down memory lane. And it also reminded me that some questions crop up time and again. So in my blog I would like to share one of those older posts. For anyone thinking about having a reading. To inform. For clarity.
There are always a lot of questions about what psychics, mediums and clairvoyants do. It’s one of the older answers I had to be ready with when I started out as a reader. Some people think that they can only get Spirit messages from clairvoyants, some that psychics can tune into Spirit and many who just get confused by all the names floating around. This is my explanation – you don’t have to accept it. We are ‘thinking beings’. I would be delighted if you use my explanation to think about what you understand or believe psychic & Spirit contact is.
Put at it’s simplest: a Psychic has the ability to read the aura (or energy system) that we all have around us as a physical individual. Because we can’t see it or touch it most of us are unaware of it’s existence. But it is there. And someone who has opened up to the information coming to them through their psychic senses can ‘read’ the energy and tell you what is most probably going to happen. They can also tell you what has happened, what is happening at the moment and the things your energy is trying to draw in for you in the future. This is not fortune-telling.
Fortune telling is how it might have been described in older versions of books and articles. When people were unclear about energy and the aura.
In present times more and more people are beginning to understand about intuition. So they recognise that an experienced Psychic can also link through you to the energy of all those who are connected to you or around you e.g. lovers, family, friends, workmates, neighbours. By ‘reading’ the energy of the people around you the Psychic can also see where their interests can be the same or different to yours and so how ‘probable’ your wishes and hopes are since your life choices are directly affected by the people who are around you.
Psychic readings pick up on your agenda – what you would like to have happen in your life. The reader checks this against the agendas of the other people around you and then gives you the best ‘probable’ outcome. We all have free will so we can choose what we do. That is why no-one can tell you your future. If you don’t like the sound of what you have been told you will do something completely different. That’s why many people say their reading was incorrect. They have heard what is on the way in and decided to exercise a free will choice another way. The reading is still valid. But in prompting change rather than forecasting solid facts.
So what about a reading from a Medium? How is that different?
A Medium is someone who has opened up to the auras of the people physically present in this world. And to the auras of people who have died. People who have died are in the ‘Spirit World’ and can come into the aura of a Medium to communicate. Mediums get this communication by seeing (Clairvoyance), hearing (Clairaudience), sensing (Clairsentience), knowing (Claircognizance), tasting (Clairgustance) or smelling (Clairalience). So someone who is a Clairvoyant gets messages more strongly through seeing pictures/figures/words/
Spirit readings through a Medium pick up on Spirit’s agenda – what else may be happening in your life that you have ignored, failed to notice or have lost sight of. Spirit readings should always contain evidence that is personal to you about the Spirit who has come forward or about yourself. The Medium should be comfortable with you only giving Yes and No responses as Spirit should be able to explain in more detail anything you don’t understand. In my experience Spirit always want to give a message so that you can understand issues or aspects of your life better. They do not tell you to do anything in particular and they cannot make decisions for you.
Remember we have free will and therefore do exactly what we choose to do. That is why Spirit do not tell you your future. As I explained above if you don’t like what you have been told you will do something completely different. Our loved ones know that. They also know us. Enjoy the messages. Take what you can from them. Older heads are wiser than us. Mediums and Psychics are trying to help us move forward as best they can.
