What Is Psychic Mediumship?
Some people have psychic abilities. We are not just intuitive, sensitive or empathic, but actually psychic. I am one of those people, because I am a hereditary psychic medium. The term psychic essentially means "of the mind-soul." Parapsychology refers to it as Extrasensory Perception (ESP) but most people just know it as the ‘sixth sense’ or the ‘second sight.’
Being psychic means that I perceive energy information regarding the past, present and future that is beyond the normal range of the ordinary five senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch.
Being a medium means that I receive spirit messages from the afterlife by communicating with departed loved ones and spirit entities, as well as channel metaphysical 'energy data' from the spirit realm (akashic record, universal field, source, matrix) .
The Difference Between Psychics And Mediums
A psychic and a medium is in essence the same thing. A medium is simply a 'specialized' type of psychic.
Psychics and mediums both rely on extrasensory perception to do readings. To do this we use the same psychic abilities, also known as the 'clair senses' or 'psychic senses,' namely clairsentience (sensing), claircognizance (knowing), clairvoyance (seeing), clairaudience (hearing), clairempathy (feeling), clairsomatica (touch, physical sensation), clairolfaction (smelling) and clairgustance (tasting).
The only significant difference between a psychic and a medium in my experience is the focus and purpose of our work, as well as the sources of energy information.
Psychics perceive. As a psychic I use the various pathways of extrasensory perception to perceive or 'read' energy data regarding someone's past, present and future. When I do a psychic reading I essentially connect with the aura, energy field, 'spiritual IP address' or 'soul hashtag' of a living person over the 'cosmic internet.' These energy data downloads are then interpreted and applied to offer my clients metaphysical insight, prophetic predictions, spiritual wisdom and life guidance.
Mediums receive. As a medium I uses the various pathways of extrasensory perception to receive information from the afterlife and spirit realm (akashic record). When I do a mediumship reading I therefore connect with the energy field, 'spiritual IP address' or 'soul hashtag' of a deceased person or discarnate spirit being or entity. I am both a mental medium (evidential medium) and a trance medium (trance channel).
Mental mediumship enables me to read the ‘soul hashtag’ of those who have departed from this life and have transitioned into what is known as the ‘afterlife,’ ‘heaven,’ or the ‘other side’, to provide afterlife validation, healing messages and life guidance to their friends and relatives.
Trance mediumship, on the other hand, allows me to connect with the energy of discarnate spirit personalities or non-physical entities to channel spiritual guidance, metaphysical insight, or universal wisdom.
Psychic Nature Or Nurture?
In my experience psychic ability is hereditary. I inherited my psychic talents from my paternal grandmother and my psychic abilities were naturally present from a young age.
There is however much disagreement on this subject. While some psychics feel there is an undeniable genetic link and that we are born this way; others feel that psychic ability is merely a skill, or a form of highly developed intuition or sensitivity, and that anyone can achieve this level of extrasensory perception.
In my view a combination of both nature and nurture is required to produce a truly talented psychic. I believe genuine psychics are born with a genetic predisposition, but their ability is further developed by their upbringing, childhood environment, education and life experiences.

Anthon is a hereditary psychic medium, which means he was born with psychic abilities, but he initially refused to accept his calling. It took a series of life-changing events to change his mind.
