What is a Psychic Medium? Are Psychic Mediums Real?

We’ve seen examples of people using mystical abilities in various forms as Psychic Mediums all of our lives, yet only some of us can answer the question; What is a Psychic Medium? 

Are they fortune tellers? Spell casters? Tv entertainment? Circus sideshows? Healing allies? Spiritual guides? The list could go on! As fun as that would be, let’s clear this all up instead.

Hello, My Dear friends; it’s Sunshine, the pink-haired Psychic Medium. Today we’re going to delve into this fantastical topic so you’ll finally have an answer to this burning question; What is a Psychic Medium? 

Whenever we get into the topic of Psychic Mediums, there tend to be additional questions that are bubbling underneath the surface. Questions like:

  • What are Psychic Senses?
  • Are Psychic Mediums real?
  • What are examples of Psychic Mediums?
  • Does everyone have them?
  • How can I tell if I have them?

Oh yes, as we explore these questions, I’ll even share a tip for discovering if YOU have untapped Psychic Senses to explore! Read to the end for that. 

What is a Psychic Medium? 

Let’s start by answering the question: What is a psychic medium? I will share my definition, and I’d love it if you to share your answers in the comments at the end of the blog!

Are you ready? 

First, you need to know what a Psychic and a Medium are. Psychics are individuals who’ve developed their perceptive abilities to observe and work with subtle information undetectable by the primary five senses. These are their psychic abilities. Examples of this would be things like Clairvoyance, seeing things through inner sight that physical sight wouldn’t notice. 

Every one of our primary/physical senses has a psychic sense, a sixth sense version of its corresponding physical sense. For example, when seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, or feeling through a physical sense, we can also see, hear, taste, touch, and smell with a psychic sense. Often, this is perceived as a subtle impression, a knowing, or a “gut instinct,” so to speak. 

This gets pretty clear when you understand that physical senses perceive from OUTSIDE of you. Psychic senses perceive from WITHIN you.

Mediums, on the other hand, are Psychics who use their psychic abilities to bridge the gap between the living and the dead. They can reach through the veil that separates our ordinary reality from that beyond and connect and communicate with spirits on the other side. Examples of this could be a Medium connecting with a lost loved one for messages of closure and healing for the still-living relative.

When someone presents themselves as a Psychic, they say they use their abilities to perceive and understand things others may not usually understand or be aware of. 

When someone presents themselves as a Medium, they’re saying they can connect to dead people, past loved ones, and spirits on the other side of the veil. 

Bringing them together, you have a Psychic Medium, an individual that can use all of their psychic abilities to connect with spirits on the other side. And they do that often to gather information from those spirits to share with a loved one or a client or to gain knowledge that will help them lead a more fulfilling life. 

Which naturally leads to the following question: Are Psychic Mediums real?

Are Psychic Mediums real?

This is a great question, but the answer will likely vary with each person you ask. I’ll cut straight through the bullshit and fluffy explanations to say this: For a Psychic Medium to be real, you must believe that Psychic Mediums are real. 

I strongly believe in the philosophy of extra-centralism, that you create your reality. If you don’t believe in the flood of information and energies floating around us that we can’t perceive with physical senses but CAN perceive with inner senses, it will not be real to you. It doesn’t matter how skilled someone is or how spot-on and spooky their answers might be if you don’t believe it’s possible to have these abilities. 

You have to believe that Psychic Mediums are real for them to be real and benefit you. 

Belief is one of the most overlooked AND underutilized forces in our lives. 

And now that I’ve given you the bottom line answer, how bout some of that fun fluff and fact before I tell you how you can see if YOU have any untapped Psychic abilities?

Real & Famous Psychic Mediums, Past and Present

Did you know Psychic Mediums have been held in high regard for as far back as we’ve been keeping verbal or written records? While those can feel easy to relegate to the realm of myth and lore, plenty of modern ones have made quite a stir in advancing not only the lives of individuals but the world and technology as a whole.

We’ve got Claire Prophet, a spiritual leader and author who grew her movement to over 50,000 members before her passing in 2009! We’ve got Edgar Casey, whose Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) is STILL the gold standard for exploring consciousness, healing, and alternate states of reality though he died in 1945. 

If we go further back into history, there are endless accountings of prophets, folk prophets, oracles, shamans, mystics, and advisors that were also Psychic Mediums. In fact, Queen Elizabeth I’s famed political advisor, John Dee, was rocking that Psychic magick back in the 1600s with great renown!

Government programs have also been running in multiple countries studying and using psychic phenomena for projects and missions from remote viewing to extraterrestrial communication for longer than you’d believe. The U.S.A. and the Soviet Union used to spy on each other with Psychic sight and probably still do.

Speaking of current events, here are a few Psychic Mediums you might recognize! Matt Fraser is a Psychic Medium with his own T.V. show and multiple book publications. Tyler Henry calls himself a Clairvoyant Psychic and has his own series on Netflix. We’ve got the Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo, yet another widely known Psychic Medium with her own T.V. show. These are all famous psychics walking amongst us today.

And let’s not forget about me, your Pink-Haired Psychic Medium, Sunshine!! So that’s Past and Present… What about Future??? Will you be adding yourself to that list? 

After this next bit, you might!

Does everyone have Psychic Senses? Can anyone be a Psychic Medium?

Ok, here’s the blog bonus you’ve been making your way towards; How can you know if YOU have untapped psychic senses???

Well… If you’re living, breathing, and reading this blog, yes, you HAVE Psychic Senses. They may be undeveloped and therefore feel like you don’t have them, but I promise you, you do. If you develop them, you can absolutely be a Psychic Medium!

How can I say this with such confidence? Because as I shared earlier, these inner senses match each primary physical sense. Each of your five senses relates to a different psychic ability known as “the Claires”.  

  • Clairvoyance; the ability to see within your mind — like your visual imagination.
  • Clairaudience; the ability to hear in your mind — like remembering your favorite song.
  • Clairsentience; the ability to feel in your mind — often experienced as aches, pains, or chills.
  • Clairalience; Is the ability to smell in your mind — experience a non-physical fragrance.
  • Clairgustance; the ability to taste in your mind — experience an impression of flavor.

But there’s one more Claire that’s most commonly tied to our intuition. Claircognizance; the ability to know with certainty in your mind — without logical explanation.

Pretty cool, right? So, how can you know if you have any of these senses ready to wake up and begin speaking to you? Take a moment to pause and reflect back on some of your most recent experiences and tell me if any of these happen in the comments below:

  • You think of someone right before they call you.
  • You have a feeling something is going to happen before it does.
  • You see images in your mind that feel so vivid and real.
  • Information comes to you that you can’t explain, like the location of a misplaced object.
  • You get told you’re “lucky” and you often seem to be at the right place at the right time.
  • You can tell a lot about the people around you by “feeling” them out, even if you don’t talk to them.

While there are many more indicators of psychic abilities awakening and ready to be honed, these are a few of the most common ones my clients most easily recognize within themselves.

I hope you feel clear and confident about being able to answer the question: What is a Psychic Medium? Did you learn anything new or have any neat reflections pop up? Drop them in the comments, I’d love to know!
