Ever wonder what the difference actually is between psychic abilities, intuition and mediumship? Have you read books or studied religions where one is held higher than the others and considered the “better” ability or the only legitimate one?
In my background, Spiritualism, mediumship is lauded as the best thing of all. Psychic abilities (and psychic fairs and any tools used by psychics, such as tarot cards or pendulums) are much maligned. I always found that a little strange. And when I see or read about one person, philosophy or religion putting down other forms of connection with Spirit and energy, it’s usually because they’re trying so hard to prove their own legitimacy that they put down everything else that seems similar.
Here’s what I think.
It’s all information.
Whether you connect with psychic, intuitive or mediumistic energy, it’s all information. It’s information on different levels about different things. But one is not necessarily better than the other. It all depends on what you ask for and how it’s used. When I work with people, I tend to use all of the information I can access to paint a complete picture.
When I work with people, I tend to use all of the information I can access to paint a complete picture. Because I ask for their highest and best good, I know that, no matter that source of the information, it’s OK to receive it and use it. Plus, we’re all connected anyway. We’re all One energy, from the same source.
This is how I differentiate and classify the different types of information: psychic, intuitive and mediumship.
I think of psychic information as the stuff related to our everyday lives. That can be our jobs, houses, relationships, families and the cares and concerns of our physical lives. Psychic information comes from the person’s aura and the energy that’s close around and within their body. For me, it often feels heavier or denser. Some people would describe it as vibrating at a lower frequency.
For me, it often feels heavier or denser. Some people would describe it as vibrating at a lower frequency. But that’s nothing to be concerned about, as long as you know that’s what you’re picking up. It can be very helpful to know what is going on in someone’s mind and emotions, what they’re spending their time and energy thinking about and feeling. It’s good and useful information.
Intuition is a connection with the higher self. When I ask for and receive intuitive information, it goes beyond everyday concerns and gets to the truth of the situation. Intuitive information is always for your highest path.
So, if I’m helping someone with a relationship issue, for example, I may be able to psychically pick up information on the state of the relationship and the dynamics going on between the people, which can be helpful in getting the lay of the land. And then I ask, intuitively (and I teach people how to do this for themselves as well) about the state of the relationship, the dynamics involved and the way forward. This gives me information about the person’s highest path and what is the true story — what’s really going on beneath the surface layers of emotion.
Intuition will give you information for the next steps forward so you can live your highest purpose in life.
Information from mediumship
Mediumship is a connection with people who are in Spirit and no longer in physical form. So information from mediumship, comes from Spirit and those in Spirit.
Some of the information from folks in Spirit, and the way you connect in with them, can come through psychic energy and connection with the person you’re reading. For instance, if you’re doing a reading for someone who wants to connect in with their mom, when they ask you to connect in with mom, or give you a photo of her or something she owned, that object or request has psychic energy that you can use to connect to the frequency of the person in Spirit. So even in mediumship, psychic information has its uses.
When you get information from friends and loved ones in Spirit, that information can pertain to any aspect of life. It can cover the same ground as psychic and intuitive information: jobs, relationships, houses, daily life, illness and wellness, and walking your highest path and meeting your potential.
That’s how I view and classify these different types of information you can receive by connecting with the energy of Infinite Intelligence (which is the energy that makes up every living thing on this planet). If you’ve got a different definition and understanding, I’d love to hear it, so leave a comment.
