There are lots of names for those who are able to communicate beyond traditional speaking methods.
So, what’s the difference? Here is an easy breakdown of these gifts. Let me know which one or combination of these paranormal roles applies to you!
Intuitives “tune in” to a client’s energy and can sense how past and current events continue to influence the present. Intuitives typically assist a client with processing and releasing old energies to open new pathways for healing and understanding. Sessions are focused on restoring or creating a new flow within the person. The goal is for the client to experience life from a lighter perspective. Intuitives may possess a combination of other paranormal abilities.
Psychics are those who receive information or manipulate the world beyond the traditional 5 senses (touch, sight, hearing, taste, and smell). This may be through extra sensory perception (6th sense, precognition, etc.) or through psychic influence (telekinesis, pyrokinesis, etc.) There are also psychics who predict the future, read the past and/or comment on the present. Other psychics who communicate with animals, use tools (tarot, astrology, etc) and/or psychics who talk to spirit guides and angels, etc. Most do a combination of things. Information given a client helps with interpreting life events and assist with helping others with issues such as relationships, healing and purpose.
Mediums specialize in connecting to and communicating with those who crosssed over and are no longer in human form. They return to speak to their loved ones and share messages or remembrances about their life on earth. The deceased individual often attempts to help bring peace, forgiveness and understanding around a situation or relationship. A medium transmits the information to the client. Most mediums are psychics; not every psychic is a medium.
Channels are able to turn down their own rational mind, ego and personal belief system to allow spiritual/psychic/intuitive messages to flow through them, just as if they were a telephone wire. These messages usually come from a defined and known source. Channels' behaviors literally transmute to imitate the Being/Spirit with whom they are in contact.
Empaths use their big hearts to make a deep connection with a client. They use their energy to create a safe healing space for their clients. Empaths are capable of feeling and experiencing the same emotions and sensitivities as the client without identifying or claiming it as their own story. Most empaths are also psychic.
