When we use the term psychic, it’s often quite a broad term that could mean any number of things. Basically, not all psychics are the same and some psychics have particular areas of expertise. Here we’re going to outline some of the different things that a psychic may specialise in and the type of reading you could expect.
A medium is someone who communicates with the dead. Mediums communicate with the spirit world in a number of ways. They may receive intuitive information which appears in the form of images or words that leave mental impressions, or they may actually hear auditory messages or see actual images of the messages. Whichever type your medium receives, it doesn’t make them a better or worse psychic for it. In person, your reading may involve your medium entering a trance like state whilst they connect with the other side or they may ask you for a picture of the person you want to communicate with (if you’re asking them to reach someone specific). A telephone reading may involve your medium reaching out to the spirit world to see if any messages are coming through for you. You may also ask to communicate with someone specific.
A psychic who specialises in dreams is known as a dream interpreter. Dreams can be a manifestation of our deep thoughts and inner feelings – things we may not even be conscious of. Our dreams are often our unconscious mind trying to tell us something. It is also commonly believed that dreams are a way for spirit guides and loved ones who have passed to convey messages to us in this world. Visiting a dream interpreter allows you to dig deep into your dreams to provide rich insights into how you’re feeling. You can also use a dream interpreter to see if someone on the other side is trying to contact you. Before you visit a dream psychic it may be helpful to keep a dream diary and note any recurring instances and how you felt during the dream.
Many people believe that they we do not just have one life. In fact, it is thought that we live many lives and that by undertaking past life regression, we can find out more about a previous life. A past life reading involves a psychic or a medium informing you of what they see in your past. Someone who specialises in this will be able to look back and give you bits of information – sometimes in great detail. Once you’ve had a past life reading, you might find you want to try past life regression where rather than a psychic telling you about your past life, you essentially relive it under a type of hypnosis. Many people find past life readings or regression useful to try and find questions as to why they have certain traits or qualities – which can be passed down through different lives.
Clairvoyance is the ability to gain information about an object, person, location, or physical event through extrasensory perception. Some people are simply born with clairvoyance and a clairvoyant reading can be helpful in many areas of your life, from family issues to financial affairs. A psychic who is a clairvoyant will be able to tell you general things about your life and they may use different tools during the reading such as crystals or tarot cards.
Some psychics use crystals as a way of reading energy and some are more comfortable with crystals than others. Using crystals is one common way of connecting to the spiritual world when conducting a psychic reading. This is because crystals are so rooted to the earth and can help psychics make a strong connection with the spiritual world. Crystals can be used to communicate with the spirit world or they can be used to detect the kind of energy surrounding you which can help you gain insight into your life.
Many psychics are proficient in the ways of the tarot. Having a psychic tarot reading can be extremely enlightening. A reading could involve asking the psychic some questions and them reading and interpreting a tarot spread to give you some answers. Or it could be a little more general than that with the psychic simply doing a spread and seeing what’s in store for you! Psychics who use tarot cards will have practiced and honed their skills for a long time, getting comfortable with and connecting with their own deck.
