What Is A Psychic Medium?

Different psychics have different abilities, as well as different levels of power. Some psychics can only read minds, while others have the ability to predict the future. There are some psychics who have the power to summon the spirits of the departed, and they are known as psychic mediums.

Mediums are psychics who possess the special ability to talk to, and summon the souls of the departed.

They are often known as channels and spirit guides mainly because they assist people in communicating with their dead loved ones and serve as channels in relaying each messages. There are different types of mediums today, and they can serve in helping people reach out to the departed.

Here are some of the common things psychic mediums can do:

Serve as channels.

Spirit Channelling

Psychic mediums can work as channels for the dead in different ways. One is by talking to the dead via their minds and then relaying the message to their clients. Some of them may go into a state of trance for a few minutes, while others get to relay the message right away while their clients are asking questions. It all depends on the power of the psychic in this field.

Spirit possession.

There are also psychics who have the ability to let the summoned spirit take over their physical body for a period of time. In this state clients are able to talk to their departed loved ones directly, until such time that the spirit leaves and the medium goes back to his or her normal state.

Conduct séances.


Mediums conduct séances together with their clients. According to most psychics, this is one of the most difficult tasks to accomplish, as they need to combine the energies of the present individuals together as a group.

The medium will perform certain calling rituals in order for the spirit to arrive, particularly ghosts or spirits that are haunting a specific location. Through séances, the people involved are able to ask their questions directly to the summoned spirit.

Other types of spirit calling rituals.

There are other forms of spirit calling rituals that can be performed by mediums, and these include the use of Ouija board, scrying discs and other spirit calling instruments.Ouija board

Psychics who work as mediums are often questioned about their line of expertise, as no scientific explanation has yet been released regarding the existence of spirits. There are religions who find the work to be sinful. They believe that calling the souls of those that have already departed is evil and departed souls should no longer be brought back to the world of the living.

It could be difficult for them to go back to the other side and they could possibly cause trouble in our world. Before calling a psychic to perform spiritual communication with the departed, it is important that you take extra caution and choose a psychic medium that is experienced and familiar with the spirit world.

    Hello. My name is Samantha. I am trying to find out answers to questions I have. Since the age of 9 I have been able to talk with the dead through the mind, I also can talk to them with the month. I however, cannot help them “crossover.” They normally come to me just to simply tell me how they died or a story they need to share. I have not had a spirit or ghost come to me with a message to tell someone else. I cannot use my body for them to communicate with others either. I do not mind having this, what I like to call, “Gift.” I would just like to know if this means I’m a medium. Can you help me?

      It sure sounds like you’re being used as a channel. Your best bet would be to talk to someone in your area that is a medium. They can give you far more information than I can.

      It could be that someone is trying to reach you from the other side. It could also be an awakening of your Psychic powers Cressa. I suggest you speak with a Psychic to find out exactly what is going on.

      I recently was watching a true paranormal experience, where a demon was accosting a woman. This woman and her grandmother said a prayer together. “Light, light, bright light, please protect us day and night”. If/when the entity was present she said this prayer. She truly believed it saved her life. The entity left shortly thereafter.

      I hope this helps.;’
