You may have seen many movies or television shows that show fictional characters reaching out to spirits. This kind of knowledge can cause you to be confused and to misunderstand the psychic world.
What is a Medium?
A psychic medium is someone that can communicate with the spirits of those that have passed on. These people that have died can send messages to the mediums and it can be mental or physical. The mental communication is when the medium communicates with visions and the physical is when the energy is released, and it can cause there to be a loud noise or things moving around.
Why See a Medium?
People will seek out a medium because they want to talk to the person that they love that has died. It can be hard to move on in life when you have lost someone you love. Maybe there were sad times before they died or maybe you didn’t get to say goodbye.
This kind of mediumship can be seeked out for different reasons but most of the time it is so people can heal and move forward from their grief. They want their loved one to visit them.
History of Mediumship
Mediumship can be seen even as back as the primeval times. There used to be shamans that could talk to the dead spirits and this was known in the USA and the UK mostly.
Difference Between Medium and a Psychic
There is a difference between a medium and a psychic and here are the differences:
A psychic can be different things. They use their senses and their mind and soul to get information that can be given to others. They often have different gifts such as telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, clairaudience and more.
Mediums use their powers to talk to spirts and to reach out to those that have died and passed on to their spirit life. They are able to use their senses to speak to these spirits.
A medium might be able to use their senses to taste something that the deceased ate, to smell their perfume or to talk or feel them.
Readings do not have to be face to face, even mediumship readings. These can take place on the phone. The spirits will come when they want to, and this is something that you need to understand.
If you have a spiritual adviser, they will approach this their own way. Sometimes they will hear or see the spirits and sometimes they will get nothing. You will not get possessed by talking to a medium and you may or may not get the answers you want for them.
Preparing for a Reading
You have to go into a reading with an open mind and heart. Do not be skeptical or have negativity when you go to the reading or it will not work well. If you are feeling bad, reschedule your reading and find a time where you can be in a better mood.

- Research and find a medium that is known and has good customer reviews.

Developing Your Gift
If you feel that you are gifted with mediumship gifts, you can increase these gifts by working on yourself. Here are some ways you can develop your giftings:
You have to believe in this in order to see it happen. If you have any doubt about it, you will not increase your gift.
You need to be at peace with your gift and embrace it.
Always practice using your gift. Just like other things that you want to get good at, you have to practice your psychic gifts the same way.
Take time each day to meditate and to develop your gifts. Go somewhere that you will not be distracted and learn to block out other sounds. This can be a time where you quiet your mind and hear from the spirit world.
